Time To Get Paid

Payday 2 is a success, because the people making and publishing it weren't completely stupid. What sorcery is this?

Watch Video

Yay dragon dildo :) you're so nice Jim Sterling.

As for Payday 2, I really want to get it, but with no one to play it with, I don't see a point atm :\

That last bit was cringe indusing xD I'm watching this at my college in a computer lab. Im surrounded by people xD.

Its not my sort of game, but Kudos for them for having the success they very much deserve.

As a side note... what was going on that ended up with you having to deal with transphobes?

well that was just... weird

One more thing I have to say.

GTA comes out, and the media swarms over it being a horrible game for your kids.
Mass Effect is released and the media swarms over it being a Sex Porno Game that will corrupt your kids.
Modern Warfare is out and the Media blames various murders on kids playing the game.
Payday 2 comes out,a game LITERALLY ABOUT ROBBING BANKS...........and I haven't heard a single thing about the media going all over it for influencing our kids and making them want to rob banks in real life.

Is it bad that I am just waiting... EXPECTING... for the media to turn on Payday 2 in such a way?

Its sad I recall Oblivion talking about how they got burned on Fallout New Vegas because a third of their "budget" was actually set aside for marketing and they didn't know this until way into production.

I'm glad overkill is doing well I loved the first game and bought the second but I'm too tied up at work to play it :(

I kind of regretting seeing the dragon dildo now *shudders*. Damn my curious nature!

Also yay for the Payday devs.

We did not deserve that ending. But I am glad we got it. It was glorious.

We probably won't see anything as Overkill didn't spends millions marketing this. The mainstream media probably has no idea this game exist.

Thanks for the dildo Jim, but next time, don't do it. If we can't behave ourselves and you still reward us,we'll never learn. Worse, we'll become even more entitled.

Any feedback from the neighbors?

So, Jimmy, did you and TotalBiscuit plan this together or is it a coincidence that both of you talk about sequels that did better than its predecessor through word of mouth, on the same day?

I gotta say, I was a bit disappointed. I know Bad Dragon has way bigger dildos than that.

Well, that raised a wry smile and no mistake.

Wasn't ever going to happen as it's small game sold (at least I think entirely, sorry if I got that wrong) online, so no physical copies to be seen on shelves. There was no major ad campaign, so the "mainstream" would never even hear about it. The others you mentioned cost millions and had millions spent on adds.

I will gladly listen to the same point as before being made again with simply a new example to point at.. if it gets us that ending. Oh that ending. We didn't deserve it but thanks anyway.

Thank you for making this episode, Jim, for two reasons. First, this is first-hand, tangible evidence that the AAA game market is fucking up and there are ways to be profitable without compromising the game. And, second, for bringing this game to my attention, because I like the concept and will now likely buy it.

Total coincidence. We both seem to have similar trains of thought, so it's not the first time we've coincided.

Of course, he never plays with dildos, as far as I know.

As a transsexual myself, I'm glad that Jim understands and respects us despite all the ridicule he gets for doing so.

I know right? I ACTUALLY want to go out and rob banks now...

Thank Jim for God!

I could almost see tears running down the miniature face of Miniature Action Fantasy Willem Dafoe as Jim was closing in with the dragon dildo.

Sort of making the same point as the Dark Souls episode, but it's well made and from a different angle. Jolly good stuff.

Gosh that's a lovely dildo.

Damn Jim I damn near shed a tear after you named all the series that I loved being dragged through the dirt now.

I just got it last night via word of mouth then clocked six hours in it which makes seeing this kinda funny. I mean I know the comparison is tiresome and all but it is essentially the combination of l4d2 and borderlands 2 with most of the faults from both franchises removed and very few faults put in its stead. I don't think I've ever heard in-game voice chat done quite this good.

And that feeling of joy from your first successful no-alarm mission is truly priceless.

Thanks Jim, I appreciate that someone says something for us transfolk. Love you sir!

Oh god...that last part. Stay classy Jim.

You did that just to ruin DuckTales, didn't you Jim?

On the main subject of the video, it's definitely good to see the devs do so well. Let's just hope that the same thing doesn't happen that did with the Dark Souls video, where From came out and said that it was "all or nothing" or something ridiculous like that.

Also, I've been meaning to pick up Payday 2, but alas, I can't due to those shortages you mentioned in the video. I'd also like to mention the competitive pricing as well, with some places selling it as low as 20 (half the cost of a game usually, for those of you outside of the UK). I think that has played a big part in the game's success as well.

That ending was brilliant, then I recognised the music, which just made it at least 10 times better.

Oh, and well done to the folks who made Payday. It's not really a series that's one my radar, but it's heartening to see a game that is just doing what it's developers fans want instead of just pandering to some mythical potential userbase (that will never materialise) and coming out better off for it.

Duct tape hurt yo. Also, good on Overkill for being not idiots.

Well, thanks for either ruining the Ducktales theme or taking the appreciation for it to new heights, Jim. Not sure yet.

Wait, you can make money by making a good game that DOESN'T use the most cutting-edge graphics, sound, animation and engine there is? ARE YOU LISTENING, TRIPLE-A DEVELOPERS?

PD2 doesn't appeal to me, but that's the great thing about games with reasonable development and marketing budgets, made to appeal to their audience with game play quality and find that audience through word of mouth - they don't need to appeal to everyone to be successful. That kind of philosophy leads to more games appealing to more varied tastes, so there's more games appealing to any player, even if individual games don't try to appeal to every player.

Whoever said that Sterling was a faggot wasn't wrong. He is a faggot; a wonderful amazing faggot right up there with Freddie Mercury, Sir Ian McKellen and Neil Patrick Harris.

Okay then, we narrowed down the suspects.

Whose tongue was it?
