There seems to be this impression that the game did not sell. the game sells very well. Its the best selling game I've ever made, and I live from the royalties.
I think its silly that people assume that if you ask 'why did the people who didn't buy GSB, not buy it?" people assume it did not sell.
It sold fine, but I'd like it to sell better, and I'd like it to be the best game it could be.

World of Warcraft sells well, but would blizzard benefit from knowing the reasoning behind those people who have not bought WoW? Of course they would.

I have never said the game didn't sell well, i am very pleased with it's sales. Some people never get past the headline and automatically go into 'bash-developer' mode, and accuse them of 'whining' just because they ask a question of gamers.


Just an observation. Every time I see you comment on a board, I don't think the "tone" in your head while you're typing is the same "tone" people read into your words. "Some people" think you come across as a jackass. Not me, I think you're swell. But "some people"...

Yup. Anything that was a problem on XP 64 bit likely won't run at all on W7, so what's the difference.

If there was a decent free period for old players to come back and try I'd give it a go. A month sounds about right.

Meridian 4's Chains which was only recently added to Steam, got retrospectively added to the complete bundle pack. But the two did come out very close together.

My thought exactly.

Age of Conan must really be doing bad if they're still pushing out expansions for AO.

I agree that FC2 was too cookie-cutter after the first couple of hours. I have about 8 hours logged and just feel like I've seen it all. Nor have I run across too many missions that can't be solved with a grenade launcher.

I loved the ZP review of Saints Row 2. I hope the PC version turns out to be worth the wait. GTA4 without the needy acquaintances sounds good.

NWN 2 was pretty bad at launch. That first expansion bored me to tears and the spirit eating device got old very quickly. I never finished it so I'll probably skip this, thus ending an almost unbroken run of buying Bioware/Obsidian games.

I only SP so your mileage may vary.

Use blunt weapons. I have a nice practice lance that deal blunt damage, for instance.

Crysis and Far Cry weren't sandbox and never claimed to be from what I can remember. Stalker was more sandbox, especially with the Oblivion Lost mod, but LOADING screens do not a sandbox make.

A GTA type game without the useless social stuff would be good. I can still have a blast playing GTA freeform but the whining friends aspect was a major turn off.

I'd be more excited if this wasn't from the Boiling Point devs.

Ahhh, the Guild 2 and the joys of lua script hacking to get it working when it first came out. I was lucky enough to buy it and Gothic 3 within a week or so of eachother. More bugs than Indiana Jones 2.

The last community patch I played (1.5? 1.6?) that removed the DVD check made the game pretty much bulletproof. The odd crash after HOURS of play but nothing major. Gothic 3 is HUGE. I've been playing it off and on for months now.

Different games. Sins is an RTS with a 4X veneer, this is pure 4X TBS.

And it's oddly compelling. The screenies make the game look terrible but in play it just works.

Sega can't afford to launch another console. They're lucky to still be around and would be foolish to throw away the money they're now making as a multi-platform developer.

what the fuck kind of dumbass adds a patch to a PC game explicitly for the .05% of players actually using a TV as a monitor

The sort of dumbass that's paid by Phillips to include it, probably.

They didn't mention GalCiv 1 or 2.

Sometimes I'd like to give these blog writers a shake.
