This list just reminded me that I never finished Xenoblade Chronicles.

Never heard of Boyfriend Maker, just read about it though. Funny stuff.

What's "Boyfriend Maker" and why is it #3?

DVvM says:
Well, it's #3 because the list is in alphabetical order.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 1:10:46 PM PST
A lot of them are PC only downloadable games and mods.

I don't understand what's going on there.

I think it is a little early, one way or the other, to make predictions about the fate of the Vita.

But you know, games journalism.

This is the chat function of the game. The pink text is the user, and the blue text is generated by the program... somehow.

Well, I think the point they're making is: "If you're a third party western developer, and you see a Call of Duty game completely tank on the Vita, that doesn't make you feel great about putting a bunch of money into a Vita game, does it?"

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 1:16:57 PM PST
I don't think that game sold well at all.

Boyfriend Maker is a mobile game. I know it's on Android, and it used to be on iOS but a lawsuit got it taken down. Not sure if it went back up.

Heh, ya I kind of skimmed through the list, didn't notice it was in alphabetical order. Thanks Garion, didn't know that.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 1:22:36 PM PST
Oh god, I'm cracking up here.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 1:23:22 PM PST
Oh, I got the point they were making.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 1:23:39 PM PST
Well of course you would know about it! :-)

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 1:25:31 PM PST
"More interesting is that Boyfriend Maker relies on a chat bot tailored by internet users, applied in a post-release update so that this unpredictable element somehow sneaked by Apple's walled garden."

I guess that was how.

No wonder, then.

It is nice to see Xenoblade get some love. It really is the best Japanese style rpg released this generation. Far better than FF XIII, though Ni No Kuni looks pretty darn good. :)

If you're a third part western developer, it would be unlikely for you to blame the Vita on the fact that the CoD game tanked, and blame developer about the crappy job they did instead.

Posted on Dec 20, 2012 2:18:06 PM PST
Just for statistic sake, CoD Vita has sold 300k units so far, and compared to the Vita 3.6 million userbase, it's the equivalent of a 8 million sold Wii game or a 5-6 million sold PS360 game.
Just sayin'

LOL. I love your posts, they crack me the heck up sometimes. Good stuff Flores. Enjoy your evening. :)

Doesn't CoD on the ps3/360 sell over 20 million?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 20, 2012 2:20:44 PM PST
I'm happy my accurately true posts amuse you, Christopher.

So I guess Assassins Creed 3 is this years forgotten game? WTF?

Lucanus says:
You should be a statistician. :)

If anything doesn't your original post basically admit developers are better off making 3DS games, since the install base is so much larger? Or did I miss your point? Because it read as though software sales are directly related to hardware units sold. In which case the 3DS is at 20+ million. Or am I reading too much into your "true accurate post?" Either way, keep on truckin my friend. Keep on truckin.
