He's just deleting his channel. He said he isn't done with YouTube. This is probably all a marketing sham and knew exactly what he was doing before announcing this.
I did the math. Wasteland 3 will have to sell 2.5 million copies before the investors could start seeing return on their investment. Wasteland 2 sold 600K units, i believe a 1/3 of which under 50% discount.
This is an utterly bad investment.
It is indeed. Fig is a scam tbh, but the media just keeps posting whatever the companies give to them in form of press releases, without doing any sort of actual journalism, and asking questions of relevance.
They know the whales are in need of milking so they're putting off the release until that need has been sated.
The point is, if he's comparing it to for example Diablo 2, then obviously he has false expectations and won't like the game regardless. It's like saying Baldur's Gate 2 was boring because it was nothing like the glorious Diablo 2, and there wasn't a loot fest like Diablo 2. What a dreadful game. It makes no sense to use that as a basis of comparison. You might as well say you didn't enjoy The Secret of Monkey Island because you didn't get to shoot things in the face like with Call of Duty, and there was no leveling up your guns.
I don't know about you, but I expect maybe a tiny bit more from journalists. They should at least sound like they know what they're talking about, don't you think.
But this feature is about people playing games they don't like. It doesn't really matter why they didn't like them, just that they didn't but continued to play. If this were a review of Divine Divinity I'd see your point.
Isn't the point of the anecdote you're referencing that someone played a game for ages that they didn't enjoy? I don't really see why it would matter whether you agreed or disagreed about the game specifically.
