His current video is probably better, if Hyfrydle is right, but it doesn't change the fact that he was phony. Phony being a nice way to say QUACK. Or charlatan, fake, fraud, humbug, impostor, mountebank, pretender, quacksalver. There are many synonyms, and I listed them ALL ! Gotta catch 'em all these synonyms.

Good day.

You know, it's attacks on other people such as this that keeps me away from visiting forums such as Arcen Games' forum on a regular basis. After all, why would I want to waste my day reading garbage like this when I'd be better off getting work done or gaming. Thank you for continuing to remind me why I don't come here that much anymore.

Back to the video: I'm glad TB found the time to do this and I'm additionally glad that TLF seems to be doing exceptionally well on Steam. Bonus points for being #1 on the New Releases page for more than a day. Looks like you won't be buried by garbage-games for at least a little while.

It's moved up a few points on the best sellers list already

Notice how he mentions he'll be playing that game [frozen synapse] all summer. And notice how he played the game TWICE.
And how is this relevant to anything? Its a single game when there are many, many others worth the time of day, and things like 'I'm going to play this all the time' usually are not actually meant literally. You're dragging out one thing and turning it into some massive sin when it never was.

TB usually does a good job showing basic gameplay, but I get real tired of hearing his pontificating about how things should work. Quite often about things I do not care about. He will also go on and on for 10+ minutes about how horrible something is, and it really doesn't appear to be that big of deal.

I value his opinion immensely because over time I've learned to know what he wants from video games and how it relates to what I value in games. And he's a critic, it's his job to nitpick. If he keeps going on about a minor detail, it's more often than not a positive thing about the game.

If someone wants to discuss TB's personal faults, please do that in the Off Topic forum.  If it really must be done, that is.

Not trying to shield anyone from criticism, etc, but what does it actually accomplish to dump vitriol about him onto a small indie game developer's forum?

Oh, if anyone's interested, you can discuss this video over at Total Biscuit's subreddit. There's quite a few comments already.

The thread is near the top of the new posts at the moment.


Video seems generally positive, and the comments are too.

Wow, nearly cracked the top 10 seller list again! The video seems to have had a big impact.

Yea, the past two hours are back to what we were seeing around 3-4 hours after launch.  About a 200% increase over the preceding hours.

Though I'm not 100% sure it was the video, as we also just recently got a spot in steam's top-rotator-banner (WOO HOO!), which historically has had really profound effects like that.  We just now noticed it but it may have been up there in other regions early enough to be responsible for the spike.

Either way, the sales graphs currently look very happy :)

Nice!

Oh, yeah, it is on the banner rotator thing. And STILL top of the new releases page, that's insane. I think it's safe to say that you pretty much nailed the timing of this launch. Congrats!

Well, tens of thousands more players looking at your game can't hurt sales. :)
Also, that whole "release just before a release-less weekend" was a stroke of genius.

Well, it's back up to #11 on the top sellers list. Had slid to #28 or 29 last time I checked. So those sales figure increases are very real.

How does the increase in Steam sales compare to the increase in GoG and Humble sales? We may not be able to account for the shift from weekend to week, but we can at least see how much good that banner rotation is doing.
Furthermore, it is my opinion that Hari must be destroyed.
