Enslaved sells 460,000, Kane & Lynch 2 breaks a million photo



Am I the only one who finds this just a little freakin' insane? Enslaved: Odyssey to the West failed to even sell half a million copies, while the absolutely dreadful Kane & Lynch 2 -- with its half-finished campaign, crappy multiplayer, and total lack of polish -- does over a million.

The worst game of 2010 more than doubling one of the year's most beautiful, original, and well-crafted titles just demonstrates to me how screwed up the market truly is. We complain about sequels and rehashes, we whine about publishers not putting out original content, and then this happens, and we realize it's nobody's fault but ours. 

So yeah, enjoy your next Guitar Hero or Call of Duty, folks. You've f*cking earned it.

We already knew that the upcoming reboot of Thief was going to have lots of customization on PC, but it's good to see the PlayStation 4 (and presumably all console versions) will have those options too. From the start of the...more
