    Fallout 4 is the Lada of video games. It's why he likes it so much.

    It would still be better if it was full turn-based or RTS. Custom AI scripts are just making the best of a clunky system.

    The Obsidian Edition of Deadfire has finally passed Tyranny portrait pack in sales numbers. Huzzah! It also flew past the Deluxe Edition of Tyranny and both parts 1 and 2 of White March.
    Next up on the list to beat is Bastard's Wound DLC, but that's going to take some time. Obsidian edition is on page 27, while Bastard's Wound is sitting on page 19.
    Basic version of Deadfire also passed White March Part 2, but it is clearly being beat by the Obsidian Edition at this point.

    Fig's annual report has been released.

    As expected, the report doesn't say how many copies the game sold, only Fig's revenue from it:

    [​IMG]

    In theory, this would mean PoE2's revenue by September 30 was $3,101,392 (before Valve's cut). Assuming no revenue was shared with other companies before Fig's cut, that would translate to:
    • 68,920 copies sold at an average price of $45
    • 77,535 at $40
    • 88,611 at $35
    • 103,380 at $30
    • 124,056 at $25
    However, this doesn't line up with the leaked achievement data and backer copies, which confirms my suspicion that DRIL's deal with Versus Evil and/or Obsidian shafted Fig and investors:

    Basically, what we have been assuming has been indirectly confirmed - DRIL has been selling game keys under Fig's counter so to speak.

    They have for sure hired a firm to do their accounting for them for Fig.

    Fairfax, don’t forget that there also management fees.

    What really concerns me is that none of these filings are audited. There are certain disclosures that auditors would insist on that may not be disclosed here.

    For example, I have no confidence that the 85% dividend rate is accurate. At all. There could be some adjustments to that rate, and maybe they have not disclosed it.

    Thankfully no game has been successful on fig and never will be. The best scenario is that one of the "investors" gets angry and rapes Fargo with a crowbar.

    I see no significant changes on visible stats
    • Concurrent players: small bump (+600~800) after the update.
    • Reviews: insignificant (+10) increase of positive reviews than usual.
    I don't think the update will have immediate effect on sales anyway, deeper discounts will.

    Speaking of, there's Lunar New Year sale going on (Deadfire doing the same 34% discount from last Fall) so let's do this again. Current top global sellers with RPG tags: https://store.steampowered.com/search/?tags=122&os=win&filter=globaltopsellers

    It did sell well on GOG's recent sales, once again though. I think it is on page 24 or 25 on their all time bestseller list.
