For anyone wondering: $14.2 million of that is profit.

Seems to me like they're doing just fine.

I have no idea what their numbers usually are, so idk if that's good

[-] [email protected] 15 points 1 month ago

From the article it was a 1% drop YoY so basically nothing

[-] Godric -2 points 1 month ago

Stagnation is death. 1% drop isn't a good sign for Pdox.

Capitalism is bad not because "grow or die" is ridiculous, it's bad because it's true.

[-] Godric -3 points 1 month ago

Wowzers! You're as clever as you are original, any other 'capitalizm bad' slick slogans we morons dissatisfied with the capitalist system can slap on a shirt and buy en mass???

Pdox is a corporation under a capitalist system. What generally happens to corporations that don't "go up" under capitalism???

Pls lmk, surely idk how stagnant companies fare in a system that endlessly prioritizes growth to the detriment of sustainability!9

I mean, from this information we know they're profitable at least.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

So they're going to pay their employees more?

Well there Swedish and have a collective bargaining agreement so they pay quite well

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

God bless them

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

financially yeah

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

No, you don't understand. The only acceptable amount of money is all of it. If you are making less than all of the money, then it can never be enough and your daddy will never love you.

“In Cities: Skylines II in particular, we are well aware that lately we have not met the players’ expectations in this area; this will not stay the case.”

Huh, the forum bans and whatnot kinda signaled the opposite, that they don't intend to fix anything. I guess this makes it all better then...

Sounds just like Gaijin... although now that I think about it, this sounds worse than Gaijin.

I love Paradox' games but man, I really hate Paradox sometimes. I bought all the Stellaris DLCs at the time while they were on sale (about $100, I think it was everything before the update that added espionage) thinking I was supporting the development of intergalactic space genocide & intelligent life cannibalism game, but the more I got into the community the more I realize... the devs kinda fuck the community over a lot. I would normally think "wow, they're making so many great hits at the same time, the games might be extremely buggy but they really deserve credit" but as time goes on I start to see them more like I see every AAA studio. I guess that's all you can expect when the company's stocks are public.

Also imo you shouldn't have to pay $300 to experience the full game god damn it! Although they do allow you to play as if you have most DLC when the host does, so I can't say it's immorally greedy. It's something I can appreciate.

Paradox has gamers by the nuts with forever DLC for Stellaris, Hoi4, and CK3 and we don't like it...

Or do we?

[-] blackbirdbiryani 7 points 1 month ago

I don't get people who are silly enough to pay full price for these single player dlc-chocked games when there are perfectly free, uh, copies online.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

I believe in giving all my money to the Swedes, as my ancestors before me.

At least these Swedes are nice enough to ask first.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago

Sigh

I hate myself for buying my last two Paradox DLC at full price. I even enjoyed them, I just hate what it says about that company's control over my dopamine.

The DLC will continue until morale improves.

Yep. Fell for it a bunch of times, lastest of which was Victoria 3. Never again. A pirate's life is the life for me when it comes to strategy games. Non-indie ones at least. Besides against the storm, I can't remember the last time I played a strategy game and it felt like a complete game.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

I don't understand the complaints about the expansions for these games. Ok, there's a lot of them? But they're generally good. And if you don't want them, just...stop updating and stay on whatever version you liked?

And unlike most, they make it easy to play an older version. Did I like a particular patch better and hate all that's come since then? Easy to roll back to it. What do people want...for them to not put out expansions?
