A DragonQuest to Enlightenment?

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time, over a decade ago, people would scour the internet for information about video games on their Release Day.  Today, they don't need to as hundreds of thousands of Streamers and YouTubers have been streaming and posting gameplay videos days/weeks in advance.  Thus rendering the excitement of a game's release 'Day One' to folks who didn't Pre-Order and those who didn't get their hands on a copy earlier.  Today, some folks find themselves in a boat that countless fans have warned of for years.  

Post Day One ( cough week + )gameplay has usually been the provenance of non-Triple A games handsomely paid for with over a grand of Patreon support...though recently it seems a C-note tip will suffice...for an Indie game.  Today, marks as declared, the FIRST time a Triple A title that was wanted to be played on Day One.....was not.  Why, one asks?  Lack of funds we are told.  Lack of funds, one decries?  What could possibly be gleaned from this?  Hmmm...  Time and time again, fans have met Patreon ( now Twitch Sub ) goals for non-Triple A games to be played.  Time and time again folks have donated irl on streams for non-Triple A titles to be played.  ...........Day one comes........and Day One passes.....and the game wished to be played......isn't being played Day One.  Playing it tomorrow, Day Two?  Fine, but one wonders if the message sent was received....   

Suggestion after suggestion have been posted in this sub forum header.  It is hoped that this post will be read by enough folks who tip/cheer that it may be enlightening in a more timely fashion than other posts..and Illuminate the future.

It doesn't apply. He couldn't buy the game for X reason, and now that he can, he's doing the next best thing, which is to play it on "Day 2".

It's an efficient enough course of action, unless you claim here that this "X" reason that was given, was just a façade, covering an ulterior motive.
