  1. Learn some context. #35 out of thousands of games (over 15k as of January last year) is a pretty good point two-three weeks after release, as is the fact that it has yet to drop out of the top 100 games played on Steam. We're talking about an isometric cRPG with RTWP combat, a niche game ever since its inception. We're also discussing whether the game is a success not even a month after release. To quote a certain captain, context is for kings. And getting your **** together before you start proclaiming something a failure is too. learn some business sense 35 aint good mate Stil

  3. Then say "Steam top sellers list" and not "Steam Charts", since Steam Charts is a website that uses the same data mining technique that Steam Spy uses. Okay so Deadfire currently sits at 71 on the top sellers list. What does this tell us? How is this list compiled, in particular: over what period of time are sales counted over? Number 3 on that list is (as of me posting this) Just Cause 3 XL, a game from 2015 that is currently 85% off. The fact that this is placed so highly, together with the fact Deadfire jumps up and down so dramatically, strongly suggests the time scale for the list
  4. No but i have been watching the steam charts. The reason i have been watching the charts is becasuse i love BG2 style games and i was hoping that deadfire would do really well so they can make more of them. It clearly isnt selling well. Very clearly not selling well. That's not very clear at all. It's certainly possible that it's not selling well, but you don't have enough information either way. Assuming it's accurate, the steam chart is a datapoint. One point of data isn't enough to estimate profit. no but its pretty big indication Steam is the biggest gaming platform
  5. How is saying the game is number 35 on steam a false assumption with no evidence? Dont you have steam ? Go have a look for youself. Number 35 is clearly not an ideal situation to be in . And all i said is the game is currently trending to not sell well which is pretty clear from the evidence. wish some people would take there fanboy hat off and look at the facts sometimes....jeeesus christ You also said that Deadfire has "flopped", that "three expansions are not expansions they are the game split up into 4 parts", and are implying that possibly the entire RTwP market will
  6. As far as I understand it the Steam charts are not run by Steam and aren't particularly reliable since Steam changed the default privacy settings. Unless you've specifically set your privacy settings otherwise (I know I haven't), Steam charts cannot include your data in its charts. In particular this change happened fairly recently (11th April of this year), so comparing to games that were released significantly before that (for example PoE) isn't valid. We don't know whether or not it is since, as a result of the aforementioned change in Steam's privacy settings, we don't have accur

Very clearly not selling well. But is it going to make so little money that it won't recoup the money Obsidian spent to make it? Do you have any way of proving or disproving that assertion? Do you have sales charts, profit graphs, cost/benefit analysis? Or are you just making assumptions? yeah man number 35 on the charts is my evidence im

  10. yeah you make a really good point here. They should have just left pillars alone and not introduced multi-classing, the boats and the new mechanics and just concentrated on making a bigger better game with a more immersive narrative
  11. Which is why I think they just need to jettison d20 mechanics and cliches entirely and just make the game they clearly want to make. And then actually do some goddamned ****ing QA for once in their lives. After Deadfire I absolutely cannot recommend Obsidian games to anyone before they've been out for at least 3-6 months. ****ing Bugsidian... what are you talking about?, Deadfire hasnt been released yet its still in BETA

  13. what have they done wrong? I dont think the indusrty is sick of CRGS look at divinity OS2 I honestly think they screwed up bad with Tyranny as i said in my OP and these so called "expansions" I would love to hear other poeples opinions
  14. Im not trying to bash obsidian Im being a realist. If anyone who is an obsidian fanboy is reading this im not trying to offend you im just being real
