Turns out, it is getting lots of players. The headline was just clickbait.

What? Not even 5K peak is abysmally poor.

Good for you? That does neither myself nor anyone else who can't play the game any good. I'm just glad the bug happened so early on so I was still in my refund period.

You can get it for $30 on epic

Currently playing TotK on Switch. CP77 DLC is waiting, then need to start BG3, and i still want to play Wildermyth, and what about Cocoon and Viewfinder, and then there's the HL1 update, and I should really try the Github HL Raytracing mod... So I'm stuffed with games I need to find time for. ...and I don't even care about this franchise. Robocop was never my thing.

I love how, "It’s spectacular, it’s gory, it’s unabashedly eccentric", "it's gory" is a key selling point. Does everyone require tons of gore in their games? I don't mind it, but it's not a selling point for me.

Heck, I just picked up MK1 and I'm happy that I enjoy these games for more than just the fatalities because I think MK1 scaled back on what 11 did with them. The game deserves more than just, oh, how good are the fatalities?

That rant aside, I'm definitely going to pick up Robocop when it's cheaper. I did the same with Terminator Resistance and had a blast with it. I felt the price I paid was totally worth it (I think 15 bucks) and 100% the game including the DLC since I was enjoying my time with it. I'm sure I will with Robocop too, but as others said, backlog is massive. It won't be getting done anytime this year, lol.

The game is exactly as you'd expect a robocop game to be. It's a little basic, but it's a 'back to basics' kind of shooter, just blasting punks, throwing explosives & punching dicks kinda game, and for that reason it's a blast.

This year has been so dense with great games though, that it's kinda lost in the shuffle. I bet it's on a shit load of wish lists though, and the first time it goes on sale for like $35, it'll be a top seller.

Hahaha what the hell? "One of 2023's best games" what a clickbait title. There were over a dozen better games released and that's just the AAA stuff.

Those numbers aren't mind-blowing, but it's hard to estimate if it was profitable or not because it isn't a live service and thus isn't relying on continuous 'engagement' (I have come to hate that word). Sales are the only metric that matters. Another point worth considering is that their last game was pretty small and frugal when it came to its production budget, and I would assume it's a similar case here. Back in the 90's and early 00's, "Terminator Resistance" would have been considered a distinctly mid-tier game. They don't really make those any more - everything nowadays has a ridiculously huge budget and needs to make all of the money in the world otherwise we get the typical corporate bullshit that it sold "below expectations". Thank the gods the indie market is filling that gap somewhat.

Back to the subject of "Robocop", has the company made any press releases yet? I haven't seen any.

The steam reviews show 93% of 3,534 reviews are positive. That is a pretty good number for any game and where "one of 2023’s best games" comes from.

I'd say your scale is warped. Those aren't the numbers that can sustain a studio, or even continued patching.

The 50€ cost is a little steep for me currently. I will be picking it up in the future though. No doubt. Maybe try to slide it in on epic with its coupon,

As a huge fan of the original Robocop and someone who loved their first game I bought this as soon as I could afford it. I'll be trying it out after I do the mandatory family stuff today.

Robocop was great. There's some replay value there perhaps. I tend to play a game once and leave it behind, as I've done with Robocop, so those daily numbers from this week won't include me. Super happy with it, it's much more polished than Terminator Resistance (which I also enjoyed), and I'll buy whatever Teyon shovels at me in the future

See I have a back log of games.. really kick ass games with LOTS of hours of engaging gameplay.

Yeah, same. I liked the RoboCop demo but not enough to buy this at full price. It all felt a little... basic, I guess? I will probably pick it up one day when I see it on sale somewhere but it is far from a priority title.
The backlog is already insane and it just keeps growing. I sometimes apply a last in, first out approach like when I bought Starfield and finished it right after it was released but RoboCop is not one of those games that felt like I wanted to play it right away. It can and it must wait...

Bought Robocop tonight on the Epic sale. With credits I paid around 30 dollars for it. Installed, started playing, was having fun. Finished the first mission and immediately hit a fatal error. Rebooted, fatal error. Verified files, fatal error. Checked for video drivers, fatal error. Loaded an earlier save, fatal error. Reinstalled, fatal error. Turned everything down to potato, fatal error.

Someone suggested trying to give the program special access to bypass malware protection built into windows. Not going to do that.

Googled some more, found out this is a SUPER common CTD across the board. Also found out they only released a patch for PS5. So I refunded it.

Might be nobody's playing because it CTD constantly. Damn thing is buggier than Starfield.
