I'm interested in a key, big thanks to Darkheart for contributing it.

That's one thing that's so great about this site- the mods and members both really contribute to an enjoyable environment to discuss our favorite genre of games.

Thanks Darkheart and RPGWatch! I had my tab ready to buy the game since I never win anything, but there's always that tiny bit of hope. I dedicate my first blasted mech to you (hopefully an enemy mech, not mine).

By the way if you were like me waiting the results of the giveaway to buy the game, the cheapest I found was in www.greenmangaming.com using the code GMG22 for a 22% discount making it $31.19.

So different. There is no comparison to sex because sex partners are not designed the same way a vid product is.

Streamers have different needs from other players. Vid makers often introduce themselves as content creators when they are foremost content consumers.

The quality of their show (which they sell for a living) depends on the content they are provided with. The streaming scene is such a powerful sales incitation devs take into account streamers needs, often at the expense of other players.

A good product for streamers is not quite often a good product for other players. The expectations are different.

When a product is made for streamers, it is better to watch a streamer play it.
Games like Zelda or God Og War were not meant for streamers, in this case, playing them is the best way to go.

I often stream when I visit the washroom, so I suppose by that logic, I do also stream. There, I made perfect sense of a Chien post!

The business logic of making a game for streamers and selling it to the few 1000 streamers or whatever the number is, isn’t exactly clear to me. But, it makes sense if they develop it for streamers like Carnifex, there are loads of streamers like that

There have actually been occasions when Chien has made intresting points about videogame design and so forth, but then sooner or later he begins rambling about streamers and then I'm lost.

And by the way if you type on google something like "God of War let's play", you will get plenty of search results…

Not the first thing to be unclear. People have different understanding capacities.
The case of Conan exile was mentioned many times: a fine example of a studio that understood the potential of the streaming scene to spur sales.

These days, with players having such overloaded backlogs and buying products just for the sake of owning things, the streaming scene is an incredibly powerful catalyst.

Devs obviously understood this a long time ago.
