What game did you bought last?

Recommended Posts

 

I'm sure it'll become an Epic exclusive closer to launch

 

Well played

 

 

Right in the feels, ouch...

 

On that note are there any exclusives by company that tend to publish actual sales numbers? I'd be really interested to see the impact (even though financially their sugar daddy covers them so the publishers/developers won't feel it, at least not in their pockets). Note that the 2.5 times LL "numbers" from Epic are meaningless marketing bs since we don't have actual sales numbers for LL.

Do we know if those 2,5 mils might potentially include the Steam pre-orders or is it explicitly Epic only?

It's not 2,5 million copies. It's 2.5 times the amount Last Light sold. Given how LL was, at the time, arguably even more niche than The Witcher 2 and there was a bunch of negativity around the day one difficulty DLC I very much doubt 2.5times that number is anywhere close to 2.5million copies (in fact, 2.5million would be beating out The Witcher 3's PC sales in that same period, which I would consider extremely unlikely).

 

To quote a thought exercise I did a little while ago:

Exactly, couldn't find any numbers for Last Light, which was a niche game released 6 years ago. 2.5 times the sales of a niche game doesn't sound like anything to write home about...

That would be like calling The Witcher 3 a success when it sells 2.5 times the copies of Witcher 2.

In fact, if we assume Last Light sold around the same amount of copies as Witcher 2 (which released 2 years before LL and was similarly a follow up to a popular game but not really mainstream yet) then we're talking about ~240k copies on PC (in a 4 month period), that would mean Exodus sold ~600k copies on PC, though the game hasn't been out as long so the real number would be lower, with the majority of the sales in the first month or so I'm going to guess we'd be at ~450k copies on PC).

Now Witcher 3 might be in an entirely different league still, but that game sold 6 million copies, in the first 6 weeks, only 30% were PC sales, so the actual PC sales number would 1.8m

So yeah, that...doesn't seem very good given the amount of hype.

Of course all of the above is extrapolations on top of assumptions, so take it with enough salt, but it does make one wonder whether they might be desperately trying to make things look better than they are in the hopes that people will "realize their resistance is futile".

But, as noted: extrapolations on top of assumptions (I should note I've also been rather generous towards Exodus in the above).

Hence why I'd very much be interested in an Epic exclusive company that provides actual sales numbers (I doubt there are any, but one can hope someone comes up with something ;)).

Not a game, but I bought it via Steam so -

 

Wallpaper Engine. It's interesting to be able to turn brief game video clips into actual animated desktop wallpapers, but not sure I love the program itself. Wondering if there's anything better than Wallpaper Engine for creating/using such. I don't need Steam/workshop attachment, in other words. I just want to make my own.

I just bought Grim Dawn's Ashes of Malmouth and Forgotten Gods expansions, plus the Crucible and Loyalist Upgrade DLCs on GOG. (To go with the Grim Dawn base game I already owned.)

I love Grim Dawn. I don't have the Forgotten Gods expansion though. My last playthrough I played an Occultist/Demolitionist. So far my favorite combo.

 

The last game I bought was Red Dead Redemption2.

Borderlands 2, had some fun before with Warframe but the grind was real.

And Borderlands is fun to. Quick relaxing gameplay. Some variety with characters and guns. Storyline more packed.

At some point the depth could be lacking, with no separete melee weapons. Only one power.

Bought the Pebberley Beach DLC for Two Point Hospital. At $10 or so for 3 maps, it's objectively pretty poor value, but the game scratches an a persistent itch in the way nothing else around does at the moment, so I paid it.

 

Also let my Humble Monthly sub go through solely for Mutant Year Zero, though I don't plan to play it just yet. Almost certainly going to pause it this month though since AC Origins is a nothing game for me.

Ys:Seven and Ys: Memories of Celceta. First is fun, after changing the graphic and the controls a bit, second doesn't start and now I'm waiting for an answer by GOG. Hrm. Sad because, I was really excited for that one.

Islanders. $5, why not.

It's simplistic and more along the line of a puzzle scoring game than a city builder, but it's quaint, relaxing, and fine to play while eating lunch or waiting for videos to render. :p  eg, it's a nice distraction. Also, I liked their honesty and humor in the store page/video (not trying to pump it up to be more than it is).

Bought Mercenaries Saga Chronicles. Stupid name aside, I am having medium hopes of enjoying the game.

I just bought Edge Of Eternity, along with the War Nekaroo DLC skin (it's a giant cat). That way I can support the development of this

game a little more. Game's is still in Early Access, but has been constantly getting patched with new updates weekly and sometimes daily.

To bad it is not on the GOG :(

 

Anyway, purchased Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists. But I start to hate KOEIs season pass strategy, which they introduced last year to the series...

The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition(PS4). I am very satisfied with this purchase since it has the 'Road to Gehenna' dlc on disc.
