  2. Let's look at it this way: $12k averages to $1k monthly, spread over 2 podcast shows. So that's $500 per month per podcast show.
    With Rocket having 49 episodes last year, a single episode would net $125 per person. Doesn't seem impossible to me. I also wouldn't put it past Wu to fuck over her co-hosts, so that they are getting paid less. Take into account that Relay also has a feature to support podcast shows.

  3. $125 per person, split 4 ways and then split 50/50 with Relay, means one episode would need to take in $1000 of raw ad revenue. Divide out the CPM and you still end up with tens of thousands of weekly listeners, which seems insane for such a terrible show. Wouldn't that make them more popular than DarkSydePhil, who actually does make a living at this (sort of)?

  5. I was going to say I could think of one that sold worse, and I'm just going to bring it up for the sake of comparison.

    I had to look it up again, but it's called Sukeban Shachou Rena, and it's a really fucking weird Japanese Wii game about a blogging cat or some shit. It was reportedly the worst-selling Wii game ever made, and I remember when I first heard about it I'd been told it sold something like 100 copies in its opening week. That's already better than Rev60 SE, which apparently sold 29 or fewer copies since its release months ago.

    Even then, the cat game apparently gained a small cult following that at one point tried to get it localized for an English release. It also got some exposure on Youtube, which I imagine would've helped sales in the long run, but I can't find any updated sales info on the game so I can't be sure. Also, I have no idea how much it cost to produce the cat game, but looking at gameplay footage, I'm willing to say "not much".

    I guess what I'm saying is, even awful games can sell, simply on the merit of being awful. So it's stunning to me that even with people like Lowtax and Oney ripping on Rev60, it still managed to sell worse than the worst-selling game I can think of. The only games that I can fathom selling worse are RPG/Game Maker abominations that nobody's ever heard of and that cost next to nothing to produce in the first place - the kind of shit @Jaimas would play, in other words. So, in my highly uneducated opinion, I think there's a good chance you might be right. Leave it to Wu to break new ground in the realm of failure.

  7. There's so bad it's good, and so bad it just sucks, and Rev60 is clearly the latter. Also, most of the people who might be inclined to drop a couple bucks on a shitty game for cheap yuks actively hate the piece of shit John Walker Flynt and would never give him a penny of income on purpose.

    Also for anyone who has never seen that deranged cat game, here's one of the mini-games from it.



    Unlike Rev60, it's so fucked up it's actually interesting.

  9. Something feels off about the podcast stuff in there but I don't know nearly enough about how they work to figure it out.

  10. It's probably that Brianna is the only one getting paid. It's hard to imagine each of the cohosts get 12K a year for hosting a couple of shitty podcasts each week. I suspect BriBri "forgot" to mention to the rest of them that money was changing hands and that maybe they were due a share of it.

  12. But his co-hosts are backchannels - editors at places like Polygon or Buzzfeed or other lousy clickbait rags. And if there's one thing John knows, it's how to cultivate backchannels and treat them right. As clickbait journalists they're probably making starvation wages (and not married to sugar daddies) so they wouldn't just let a few thousand bucks slide.
    Besides which, all of the co-hosts are more of a "somebody" than John is and presumably more street-smart, so I'm not sure he could pull a fast one on them even if he tried.

  16. Well, you can if you switch it over to mouse control. John trying to pass that off as a puzzle was pretty pathetic.

    BTW, isn't the ios version no longer for sale?

  20. The podcast income is surprising but maybe that network has some good sponsors to float it. It's still not enough to survive on without a rich husband.

    Still can't get over how big of a failure Rev60 turned out to be on the PC. They spent all that money and probably sold like 10 legit copies.
