That was 3 years ago btw - and still no game, even after +$107 added. Go ahead, tell me again how wrong I am and that there is totally a game.
We've always stated that they're not accurate by any stretch of the imagination. But regardless, they CLAIM that's what they've raised, so THAT is the number we have to use.
What good would it do if I used a totally made up number? I could very well say $58M and it will be just as accurate as them claiming $192M. Why? Because there is no independent auditing of the numbers.
And given the execs penchant for making shit up consistently, it's no surprise that they're freaking out over discovery in the Crytek lawsuit because THAT is going to reveal the actual numbers because Crytek will have access to their accounting because of their entitlement claim. There is NO way CIG is going to be able to keep that out of discovery.
Game developers are just human beings who happen to make games for a living. If you want to hold us up to higher standards of conduct, then go ahead
...but don't be surprised if we don't uphold them
