I feel for the poor schmuck who spent all his cash on digital space craft instead of computer upgrades.

They should have plenty of time to save up for a new computer.

I wonder if there are other hackers out there? Nah, I think there is only one hacker group in the world.

Feel free to google the numbers, they're easy to find.

$500+ million invested in the game.
Peak subscriber base 1.7 million. So say $40/copy = $68 million revenue

Let's say they managed to get all those subscribers to pay every month for the 11 months it was a subscription model..another $281 million revenue (and realistically they probably got a fraction of that).

So...
-$500 million + $68 million +$281 million = -$151 million and it's probably worse than that. Add whatever they're making from F2P minus development costs to switch to F2P and costs since the changeover.

They've lost at least $100 million, probably more.

first google result I found

According to my math, the have made at least $200 million (I used your math and substituted the 200 in that article for your 500)

Apple grantd design patent Nov 17, 2012, 09:33
Nov 17, 2012, 09:33
 
from the article:
"To be clear, this is a design patent and doesn't actually cover the computational underpinnings of flipping pages virtually. Unlike a utility patent, which would include various claims for things the patent does and does not cover, this type of patent is designed to protect the look and feel of the software in the event of any lawsuits. That's an important difference given any potential legal fight in which this patent could be brought out."

It wasn't a real name, but a placeholder that was used until the product got a real title. They even refer to it as a nickname in the article.

It’s not that Fargo hates publishers, they are a necessary evil… it’s that they wouldn’t fund the projects he wanted to do.
Since Wasteland 2 is already funded, the publisher won’t get the chance to interfere with Brian’s vision for the game.
Besides, I doubt Brian Fargo wants to spend HALF of the pledges towards marketing, fulfillment, and product support. I’m sure you’ll agree, that money is better spent on game content.

"Of COURSE I have had some publishers call me to voice their interest in Wasteland and of me doing RPGs. I knew that was coming. I had one group that wanted to fund my marketing for a piece of the pie. I politely explained that we have an ARMY of fans who are better than any marketing campaign."

Your thinking might have been straightforward but your writing wasnt. You wrote 'advertising'. There is nothing ambivalent about your wording in the sentence you used. Had you used the word 'reporting' instead of 'advertising' the sentence and its meaning would be entirely different.

Right. I'm sorry you were confused.

Words actually have a definition, and expecting someone to know what you meant when you use the wrong word is just silly.

You know, I don't remember a single actual battle in the book - just characters telling each other about them after the fact. Makes me think of Julius Caesar. I might have to reread these books...

In addition to various personal combats and tourneys, the first 3 books had some major fights "on screen"

A Game of Thrones- Battle of the Green fork

A Storm of Swords- Battle of the Blackwater

A Clash of Kings had the Red Wedding, the siege of the Wall by the Wildlings and then there was all of Dany's battles, especially Mereen.

This game is so much fun. It is crazy what small team can make. The single player game is a bit buggy, but there is a ton of depth beneath the surface.

I can only imagine what they could do with a larger team, they are like 4 people now? I think it was 2 for the first game?

Another article on Voodoo extreme points out that they are talking about people that go from a trial account past level 10.

Yeah. In most FPS games you end up using whatever the enemies around you are using, for ammo reasons. In my mind that's very boring.

I love having to be miserly with the ammo and making sure every shot counts. It adds a tension that I would greatly miss in a story driven game like Deus Ex.

wait, are you complaining about the amount of dialogue in a rpg?

Years ago RPG games had little to no story. Then they started introducing story and so now we think of RPG's as being story-driven. Story defines adventure games, not RPGs. These days, many mainstream RPG's are really adventure RPG's. Not all though.

you are nuts. The best CRPG of all times was pretty story-driven:

Wasteland
