    this is more per share than what Fig promised (85% dividend rate instead of 70%)
    Is this good?

    it's more than what they paid for the shares, but the investors don't get to get dividends over time that could potentially be more than that eventually. Or potentially less than that, depends on how well the game sells.

    I guess it depends on how many copies Psychonauts 2 would have to sell to make people additional dividends that add up to more than $196.

    Which I have zero idea what that number would be.

    That seems shitty.

    I mean at least they're paying something, but seems like unless the game does really poorly those folks just got screwed out of a good bit of money.

    Looking at this https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1658966/000121390016018652/f253g2111616_figpublishing.htm

    It looks like a $700 return is about 1.1M units sold. Psychonauts 1, according to their pitch, sold about 1.7M lifetime. I don't know how to project Psychonauts 2 sales, but if you say they're the same, then you'd get $950 per share. So you're short $250, but that was 10 years of sales, with much more of them (1.2M sales) in the second half. If it followed the same pattern, you don't even hit the breakeven sales point until after year 5.

    Investing $500 in 2017 to get $950 in 2030 is about a 5% annual interest rate.
    Investing $500 in 2017 to get $696 in late 2019, call it 2020 is an 11% interest rate. If you somehow reinvest at 5% until 2030, you'd end up with $1134.

    So unless it's some kind of smash success relative to the first game, I think it's a pretty good buyout.

    I haven't played enough CSD2. Did it ever come out on ipad? I actually ended up playing way more of the first game there than pc. The touch controls were good!

    I also love the bits of weird apocalyptic lore in CSD 1/2. Sounds like 3 is bringing it forward.

    Looks like it didn't come out to iPad, which is a shame because yeah the touch for CSD on iPad was much better to me than PC or console.

    Also, that shit is going onto Gamepass, so that likely mucks up the numbers even more.

    I've been waiting for Raji for quite some time, they've tried to kickstart it, but couldn't get the funding. Then they partnered with [email protected], and it seems to have gotten some traction - I'm hoping that they can secure a full publishing deal soon so that they have funding for the rest of the development.

    I am super down for seeing more games come out of South East Asia, for a region that makes up such a huge percentage of the earth's population, I know very few game dev studios from there, and even fewer that make games set using South Asian culture/mythology.

    Ashen was fine. Kept the Dark Souls tradition of being good at the start then being worse in the second half.

    there's a lot of dark souls areas that i don't know that i would call outright bad, but which i also don't have any desire to ever play again, because they're just kind of mediocre

    yeah i like tomb of the giants, new londo and duke's archives just fine

    izalith is obviously unfinished to a comical degree, and the boss fight there sucks ass, but the blatantly copy-pasted monsters are kind of hilarious

    reverse opinion here, poison swamp you can barely move in full of constantly respawning mosquito monsters is way better than blighttown's precarious paths over instant death and toxic dart snipers.
    I'm not very sensitive to low FPS, like I noticed the chugging in the PS3 version but it didn't throw me off or bother me.
