No High Scores

The the post 100 era of Jumping the Shark begins this week with episode 101 in which Bill, Brandon and I do pretty much the same sorts of stuff we’ve been doing for nearly 2 years. (I originally typed “200 years” there and isn’t that troubling?) Bill epilogues Dark Souls and begins his adventures in Saints Row 3, I finally pin down my biggest grievance with Skyrim’s gameplay and why it doesn’t appeal to me the way it probably should, and Brandon ventures back to the streets of Arkham City, while also taking a look the Infamous 2 DLC: Festival of Blood. After that it’s our most disappointing gaming moments of the year, in which we talk about burying sports games, the letdown of Dragon Age 2, and Brandon’s long list of games that were naughty to him this year.

Todd was born in Ann Arbor with a Michigan helmet in one hand and a mouse in the other. (Never you mind the logistics of this.) He grew, vertically anyway, and proceeded to spend over 16 years as a development editor for Pearson Education, publishing books, videos, and digital learning products under the Que and Sams Publishing imprints. Because that wasn't enough of a challenge, Todd has also been a 20-year part-time snob about video games, writing reviews, features, and more for multiple outlets.

  1. I was curious to find out what sales were for DAII. Turns out that Origins did better than I expected and DAII did worse than I expected. Granted all I did was a quick search on VGChartz (ie. iffy data), but here’s what they have:

    DA:O – 360 – 2.18 mil
    DA:0 – PS3 – 1.39 mil
    DAII – 360 – 0.82 mil
    DAII – PS3 – 0.49 mil

    Wow. Granted, I left out pc sales as they have no idea what DD sales are, but wow is that a change or what? Effectively 60% less sales. Wow wow wow.

  2. Those numbers warm my grizzled heart. Even without the PC numbers, I’d be willing to bet money Origins did better on PC than DA2 did.
