    You are a rockstar :)

    If you're mentally exhausted, you're free to come over here and get some beer, y'know. Don't push yourself too hard.

    Spain is too far away from South Carolina, and I don't like beer. Thanks for the offer, though.

    Hi Shadow.

    How are you? Hopefully you had time to take more care of yourself.

    I wanted to talk about the amazon thread. I completely understand your reasons to discontinue them.

    So I wanted to ask if I can create a successor or continue the thread instead?

    I put a lot of work into my program that tracks the amazon lists and even want to expand it a bit more. Stuff like adding other countries. While amazon is not a good indicator for the US atm I still have hope that the situation will be resolved. Also in the future I would like to create a global amazon trend indicator.

    So maybe I can take over the amazon thread so you dont have to stress about it anymore.

    Looking forward to an answer.

    Best regards,


    Sure. I've completely lost interest. The first of the month came and went, and the fact that I hadn't put the July thread up didn't even enter my mind, even though two years ago I was on the ball, mindful of the start of a new month, and regular with the updates. Not so much anymore. Especially now that Amazon's predictive capabilities are now essentially over.

    Regarding my mental state, I'm not really depressed. Just exhausted and frustrated. It's just one thing after another these past couple of months for stuff around the house with things breaking or pests invading. So, whenever I have any free time that doesn't involve having to take care of a bunch of shit, I just don't do much of anything that takes any effort. I just want to chill out and enjoy mostly passive entertainment, and anything active I keep simple. I did have a good long break last week, but this week has been non-stop and I'm right back to being exhausted. I guess having no energy is part of getting old.

    Things change over time. Thank you for the work you have put into all of these threads! I've been visiting them even before I joined VGC.

    Still wishing you all the best, that the amount of stress you have gets to a more reasonable level soon. And you are not that old yet if your age in VGC is accurate :D

    Also is that blog in your sig that project you have been talking about? Its an amazing read! Writing this must have taken a lot of time.

    Google Stadia will succeed... and here is why

    Screenshot said: The last Blockbuster is about to close. EB Games/ Gamestop is headed in the same direction. Still years away, however. Actually, the last Blockbuster's owners say it's not about to close. But movie rentals never went away because of Netflix, et al. It's just that Blockbuster, Movie Gallery, etc., became too expensive of an option compared to the alternatives, and...

    zygote said: Where are the graphs and charts that show the comparison of Switch with Wii/PS2/DS launches aligned? That's the information I miss from these sales threads. It's not really much of a comparison, considering those three systems were, along with the 360, far bigger than anything else they can be compared to. They're part of the "40 Million Club" in the U.S. (and the DS...

    I LOVE GIGGS said: Thanks a lot.  The lead that PS4 is having over Xbox 360 will quickly disappear from now on. The real question is whether the One will be able to save the lead it has over the PS3? That would be interesting to watch, especially with all digital version coming soon. My own personal estimates for final lifetime sales for the PS4 & XBO in the U.S. are...
