Hey Machina. Question. Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far is exclusive to North America. How did it get sales in the "other" category?

Other North American countries. The NA on game pages is shorthand for America.

Hi :) How are you doing? Have you seen the new Dota patch already? Icefrog has really gone insane this time :D

Yeah I read through the patch notes and watched Matu play it for a bit yesterday. Some pretty broken-sounding stuff in there; expect a lot of quick nerfs.

on 20 November 2018

Probably. But its also a lot of fun. Tried Midas Dagon Ogre and a 1-4-1 Bounty Hunter xD

Hello Machina. Question: Would you happen to know when users will be able to see the sales of overseas releases when they launch outside of Japan after 10 weeks again? For example, Valkyria Chronicles 4 launched on PS4 (been out in Japan), Switch, X1 overseas. I can see the overseas data for the Switch and X1 versions since they didn't release in Japan earlier, but I can't with the PS4 because it launched in Japan earlier.

You can see the total to the nearest 10k.

But I guess you're asking when will you be able to see the fully detailed 10 week breakdown? In which case the answer is almost certainly never, because Talon has unfortunately left the site, and he was the one working on those sorts of things.

on 17 November 2018

Though if you have specific titles you want to know, I could paste them to you.

In the case of Valk 4 the PS4 version did:
- 23,792 week 1 US, 11,322 week 2 US
- 14,021 week 1 Europe, 4,577 week 2 Europe

on 17 November 2018

Yeah. I was asking about that. Unfortunate that Talon left. That is a huge blow. I've been waiting so long to see specific region numbers again. Well, now I know. Thanks for the VC4 numbers. If I have any specific titles, I'll definitely ask you. Thanks again.

Actually, just finished Metamorphosis and it was alright, but The Trial and The Castle were insufferably tedious.

Fuck me are Franz Kafka's novels boring.

What's new Machina?

Same old, same old.

What you doing nowadays?

on 12 November 2018

Still working in NY. Thinking about going back overseas again though.

Are we friends on Facebook? We could chat there.

on 13 November 2018

Tsch, I don't use Facebook!

What country you thinking of going to?

Have you seen this horror? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab2-WW1skOM

Only thing horrific I can think of when watching this is the word “mobile”...

Other than that, I don’t understand why you’d call this an horror.

on 02 November 2018

After blizzard teasing something big for Diablo in the last few months, to have it be a mobile title that's very similar to Diablo III is more than a let down.

on 02 November 2018

This is what you get for rewarding the mediocrity that is Diablo III.

On the plus side maybe next year they'll remake Diablo II, since they've remade StarCraft and are now remaking WarCraft III.

on 03 November 2018

Do you guys not have phones?

I liked the guy asking about an out of season April Fool's joke too.

I think I should've already earned the Cleanse The Wilderness badge, I certainly did more than 250 comments on news articles, considering I've made a total of 350 article comments, but only about 15 of them were on reviews and sales articles and none on previews and opinion articles as far as I can remember.

Awarded.

on 27 October 2018

Thanks :)

on 28 October 2018

Is the haunted badge working? Looks like no one has earned it yet.

on 02 November 2018

Ah, yes, it works but needs activating on the day.

I'll activate it today for 24 hours, since I forgot to do it on the day itself.

Awesome! Thank you for the notice.

Hey Machina, i have another request if you could please help me. Could you change my name from "Ryng_Tolu" to just "Ryng" ? thanks

Not something I can do (I don't know the first thing about coding). Trucks can do it tho.

on 21 October 2018

Can you give me the link of his account?

Let me know what you thing. :p

Excellent, thanks for taking on that responsibility.

My main suggestion - to add Boutros' list of links to older NPD threads to the bottom of the first post.

on 19 October 2018

yeah i wanted to do that BUT i made the thread at 1:30 and i was really bored lol.
OI'll add some stuff!

< Machina updated his status:

Sorry for the lack of charts. I want Talon to resolve the issue with totals before I do any more. Will get straight to work on them as soon as it's fixed.

< Machina updated his status:

Note - I'm aware there's an issue with how sales are being displayed and tallied on some game pages at the moment. Have contacted Talon and hopefully he can sort it out for us.

< GuyDuke posted something on Machina's wall:

Thank you so much for your work on the charts. What dedication!

Thanks for the kind words, much appreciated :)

Oh wow. Thank you for adding me! I feel honored :)

I was surprised to notice you weren't on it already. Can't not have a fellow Liquid fan on my list :o

on 24 September 2018

:D
Sadly they did not do that well in the Major qualifiers :/
But the SC2 squad got Taeja back today and that makes me incredibly happy ^-^

on 24 September 2018

Yeah they performed badly, especially Kuro and M_C. And switching roles and messing around in game 2 of the final series came back to bite them.

on 24 September 2018

You see Matu's away for the DL qualifiers? Kuro's gonna play 1 and RMN is standing in as 5. Little bit

worried, had expected them to breeze through this qualifier, but Kuro's way too out of practice to play 1 at a top level. Hopefully they make it through. They're not playing very good teams after all.

on 24 September 2018

That really was strange. At least Miracle playing BH went better this time compared to the last xD
Hopefully they can redeem themselves in the Minor/ESL Hamburg qualis.

on 24 September 2018

Have not seen that yet. Damn.
Yeah now I am worried a bit as well.
I think Final Tribe will make the OpenQ and them and Lithium could get dangerous for TL. But still it would be quite an upset if TL doesn't qualify.

on 24 September 2018

< Machina updated his status:

Slower rate of chart uploads for the next week and a bit, as I'm taking some time off. Will still work on the charts but not as much as usual.

Over the last months you closed the gap greatly. Thank you for your work. You surely deserve to take some time off.

on 02 September 2018

Thanks :)

Though I got a lot more done than I expected!

Normal service resumes on Monday.

Extending supporter subscriptions by two days to make up for the recent downtime.

< Machina updated his status:

Let's go Liquid!

:(

on 27 August 2018

And knocked out by EG of all teams (SumaiL = most unlikable personality in the pro scene imo) :(

At least JerAx won an aegis, so I'm not too sad! I just hope Liquid stay together for at least another season.

on 27 August 2018

Yeah I can't stand him either.

I am also happy that OG won. I think LGD would have deserved it also but they made a few critical mistakes and threw their lead.
JerAx is such an amazing guy. Made insane Earthshaker plays while not even playing the hero :D

That leaves Fata as the only player from the original Kuro-TL squad that has not won the aegis yet. ^^
I am pretty certain they will stay together. After all a 4th place at TI is still really good and they have such a great chemistry as a team.

Do approving or rejecting my own submissions count for the GameDB Admin Jobs badges?

Nope

Eh, I knew it, that would be too easy.

on 06 August 2018

< Machina updated his status:

Back to doing charts, though the issue isn't entirely resolved so there may be more downtime in the near future.
