In this our third offering, we discuss betting on software. Specifically when the software decides to become a reality; not in the sense of it being produced, but something tangible, something real, something round and shiny you can put into the console or PC of your choice.
The comic represents this in something tangible.
When you have been a gamer for as long as I have (myself being a veteran of the 16-Bit wars), you learn that video games miss release dates on a fairly consistent basis.
We are okay with this. If it makes the end product better, then by all means keep working on it. However, it is never really a game until someone is actually playing it, and at some point we wonder if the time spent on polishing things to a mirror-like finish is worth the wait time. Especially since half the time, the mirror-like finish really isn’t mirror-like or finished.
You could feasibly put your money on a video game release date as we have shown in the comic, but we recommend that you instead put your money in something more stable, such as derivatives.
See you Thursday.
