Still need to take this game outta the wrapping :( Its annoying having too many good games all at once

Yi-Long2066d ago

... but I don't think it's annoying at all. I actually like it better this way, cause you can wait for current games to hit the bargain-bin, while you're busy enjoying all those great classics you already picked up (also from the bargain-bin btw) for the first time.

I just started Mass Effect 1 this week. Still have a shitload of other classics waiting.

Ahasverus2065d ago

The problem is that waiting for the games to hit the bargain bin gives Devs few money and then you would have less "classics"... I don't think that everygame must be bought at full price but a $40 price is fair IMO

Inside_out2065d ago

Well for such a short game with NO multi-player, those are pretty impressive numbers IMO. I've yet to rent it, maybe this weekend. I understand you complete the game in one sitting...O_o

I hope this doesn't encourage more devs to release 4-5 hour single player only games at full price.

Shut up already about these "poor" developers we are suppose to support because they only make $80k to $100k on average. If you're so worried about their welfare start a charity for them. Funny, but I bet you don't think twice about the poor women and children in China and Indonesia making your clothes and shoes for $5 a day. Or the women in China actually assembling the game consoles you play games on. Why don't you remind people to support them?

Please God forget ME2 ever existed. The story pales in comparison to ME1. You'll be extremely disappointed. Especially if you play the two back to back.

In other news, Vanquish is absolutely amazing. Highly underrated game that I'll probably be finishing up this weekend now that I'm caught up in school (worked nearly a week straight on one programming assignment).

Article title is misleading. 820K is shipped, not sold. Its actual sell-through is estimated to be a fraction of that number.

I loved DEMO so i feel embarrassed that i still don't have it. I will for sure next month.

ABizzel12065d ago

Hopefully they make it to 1 million. It's a game game, just short and over the top like Bayonetta.

ABizzel12065d ago

good game not game game. lol

NYC_Gamer2066d ago

nice amount sold without any real marketing

Ahasverus2065d ago

Another victim of Fallout and Castlevania. Fallout outsold CV of course by a large trail but at least CV managed to sell 1M in 3 weeks.

dragonyght2065d ago

this is pretty bad its a shame tho it was quite good

Neckbear2065d ago

It's not bad at all, considering it was a game with NO advertising whatsoever, no multiplayer, and you saw the typical "HURR NO RPELAY VALUEH WHERZ MAI MP?!?!" complaints.

In fact, it's quite...good.

Here's hoping for a sequel or somethin'!

Stealth20k2065d ago

Redempteur2065d ago (Edited 2065d ago )
