sexy brutale having low sales is disappointing, that game looks rad

So that's why the card prices were nuts this morning.

No, I don't own this, but it's high on my wishlist.

Damn, already the month of May and I'm still playing Zelda BOTW but almost done with it, just tackling some of the left over sidequests before go charge into the castle.

Hopefully, I can get back to gaming on my PC soon, too many good games have been released on Steam lately.

I was thinking about getting Prey, but after the fuckup that was Dishonored 2 I think I'll wait for a bit. Hope we are wrong and it turns out it gets a decent PC version, but that's not very likely.

Atlus Is a company which disabled screenshots and took down video streams of their game in 2017.

Are you sure you want to make an argument that Atlus is not ass-backwards?

I love Atlus' games but as a company they suck to be perfectly honest. And not just because their games aren't on PC.

Can't wait for Prey mostly for my morbid curiosity after Dishonored 2 and the lack of a PC demo. Will Arkane release another technical disaster? I hope not.

Though with that price hike in Asia it is probably hurting its chances to go higher.

I'd rather they release it late and in good condition than getting a repeat of the Mortal Kombat X situation.

I guess the recent increase is an "asia bump"? Larger than I expected, especially since it's so late.

Arkane behind Dark Messiah, Dishonored:



Arkane behind Prey:

wow, didn't know they were such a small studio nowadays. But that doesn't justify the quality of the ports they put out. If they can't do a quality port themselves they should hire someone else to do it. I definitely think they are not hurting saleswise as to justify not spending a bit more on a good port.

Those are two different teams. Prey is being made by Arkane Texas while the Dishonored team is in France. From what I understand, they worked together on the original Dishonored but separately for Dishonored 2 and Prey.

That's extremely close to overtaking Lightning Returns in sales! And that game has been on Steam a lot longer! (and has been on sale) This is fantastic!

Ahh, I see. Well, we'll see how it goes, but I'm guessing that it's going to be better to get it after some months and with a decent discount.

Eh? I'm utterly unsure of what you're trying to say with those two pics. That's obviously an old picture of Arkane Austin, Harvey Smith's not been there in years (he's in the other studio), and the team's obviously bigger. It makes little sense to use it as evidence of something.
