Oo, we've devolved into "I'm rubber, you're glue!"

Fancy!

Bravo, you just described all your posts ever made. Truly commendable.

A lot of words, a lot of noise, a lot of nothing.

You can doubt what you want. I don't much care. Like I've said, I'm not here to impress you. I've never once seen you participate in an actual financial discussion. I've never seen you throw out back of the envelope analyses or numbers. I've never seen you reference any kind of report. You simply say "SEE, THE INDUSTRY IS OVER!"

Repeatedly stating opinion is not analysis. You can feel underwhelmed by mine, but as you never participate or add your own, it's noise.

Lots of noise. And it's amazing to me that people doubt the degrees. Shows a lack of knowledge, honestly. Doubting degrees is fairly idiotic. Doubting the value of the degrees, or the knowledge gained? Doubting the quality of the institution that granted the degree? Sure. Fine. But doubting that someone has it? Anyone with a credit card can get any degree they'd like these days.
Just seems like a lack of sophistication on higher education on your part.

Show me where I denied indies or THQ. Show me where I've been wrong.

I remember full well when I first came here that you were quite skeptical of indies rising. As for THQ, we all know that your attitude that no publisher can do wrong is prevalent. You never denied but you affirmed by your words regarding publishers in general.

Also, funny to use the "waving the epenis" line at me then follow with "my clients would be the oens you would dream to work for." Idiotic. Hypocritical. And, sorry, I'm not impressed by external financial analysts.

Sorry, you're the one who started waving your epenis by mentioning I was incapable of being hired by anyone. That is your epenis waving away, trying to assure yourself that you diminish me. Epenis waving goes both ways so while you were subtle in waving it, I wasn't. Besides, I wasn't the one announcing everyone I had a MBA and couldn't care what people believed, an MBA I'm sure you don't have, you don't have the skill and knowledge for that. Then again, as it was mentioned, you seem to acquire any degree whenever the discussion demands you have to have some credentials for the bullshit you often spout. Just sayin' I'm not the one making up degrees as I go along.

As for not being impressed by external financial analysis, it shows in your lack of knowledge about financial analysis and anything business related. Pachter is a genius compared to you.

Beamer wrote on Mar 22, 2013, 13:37:
Anyway, "Financial analyst, worked with the industry before so yes, I do know what I'm talking about regarding this." is among the things you've said that make it seem like you focus on this industry.

What part of the tense of the verb worked didn't you understand? Worked, as in the past, and saying I worked in the industry doesn't say what I did. If you want to know, one of my clients at S&P was interested in the industry and I got involved in it and got most of my contacts in the industry from it. I told him to bail from the industry before the 2008 crash hit and I never again worked in the industry again nor do I plan to, hence I can be biased on an industry I tell people to stay the fuck away from. S&P and most rating agencies have the industry downgraded to hell, BTW.

I don't know why you put "MBA" in quotes like that. 99% of MBAs aren't worth the paper they're written on and an MBA can be had for, like, $200 per credit online. It's not like the initials are hard to get or meaningful on their own.

Sorry? Where did I ever said here I was a video game analyst? I know I'm used to your constant bullshit but sometimes you throw something as hilarious as this.

I am a financial analyst. I never claimed to be a videogame industry analyst. And even if I were, I got more things right, like THQ going down and indies rising, than you ever did in all your time here. So please kindly shut up when you have nothing to show for your supposed work and business sense.

If there's someone who keeps bullshitting every single day here that person is you. And if you're going to wave your epenis around by saying I don't get paid by any respectable company, it's safe to say that the companies I deal with as my clients would be the ones you would dream to work for, and that's all I'll ever say about my work.

Yes it does. That diatribe was flawed on every level. It was just whining.

As bad as the video is, it has more business sense than you ever could, even with the supposed "MBA" you have.

Yeah, have to agree. There are some good points completely muddled by fallacies, focusing on red herrings and a lot of baseless whining. However the good points he makes are still good, strong points, shame he couldn't have delivered this in a more proper analysis.

I have certainly felt disaffected from my favorite hobby over the past five years, I buy a lot less and normally only on Steam since it's cheap since I know there will be a ton of DLC.

I'm all but finished with consoles, they are too aggressive in trying to monetize their customers. There were some great games over the past ten years but I often feel like I overspent on a lot of crap to get the few odd good ones. I'm not doing the preorder $60+DLC thing anymore. Trying to take away the ability to play used games is something I take personally and that will definitely drive me away from next gen consoles if they try to go through with it.

Yeah, no. That vid is complete BS. The reason the game industry in 83 crashed was b/c 1. it was a fledgling industry and 2. it was in a huge bubble and 3. anyone could create a game for Atari 2600 for $50K and 4. there was no game press. The situation is completely different today.

The industry is mature and stable with most companies knowing what they're doing. We sometimes get bad games, but they get roundly trounced online and (usually) in the gaming press, as the recent A:CM and SC releases show. Companies do go out of business, but new ones rise to take their place, just like any business. The cost of producing games is exponentially higher today, so studios are much less risk averse. Consoles like XBox and Sony restrict what can be sold on their platforms, ensuring a baseline quality. PC gaming is wide open, but PC gamers are the most discerning and sophisticated gamers out there, and unlikely to be duped by poor quality games in any great numbers.
