Devolver MaxPass+ | E3 2021 KoopaTV's Live Reactions

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - MaxPass+ is my kind of subscription...!

Over recent years, publisher Devolver Digital has been known to have meme presentations during E3 time (here's a plug for KoopaTV's E3 Weeks 2021 Schedule) that both showcases some games they're publishing... and teasing some practices going on in the gaming industry. This year, the target of their derision are subscription games passes. I live-reacted to what they had to say... with Heavy Lobster being sick of their act by now.

[4:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.twitch.tv/twitchgaming
[4:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Devolver Digital is apparently going to hang out in this stream because they're not allowed on the E3 stream.
[4:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm not sure why they're allowed on KoopaTV, either!
[4:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh... Where are they? These Twitch Gaming show people keep talking and talking.
[4:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "It's coming right right now."
[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: .......(It's not coming.)
[4:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh.. I can't tell if this is Devolver or it's a Twitch ad, but I have nothing to say regardless.
[4:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Okay here's the actual Devolver Digital thing.
[4:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Showing past hits from their scary skits.
[4:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is called "Devolver MaxPass+"
[4:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We make games here at Devolver Digital, not movies."
[4:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ubisoft pwned.
[4:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Monetisation-as-a-Service."
[4:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: While Ubisoft made sure to tell the audience that everything was filmed within COVID-19 guidelines, Devolver obviously...didn't.
[4:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm jealous of Nina Struthers being fed grapes.

She ate the green grapes but not the purple grapes...


[4:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.devolvermaxpassplus.com/
They want us to look here for lulz I guess. After the presentation.
[4:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The subscription is free, and the subscription enables you access to purchase non-free games.
[4:42 PM] HeavyLobster: Devolver loves their memes.
[4:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Which is how it's always worked.)
[4:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, so they're showing a... Japan-themed game's actual gameplay with nothing pre-rendered. "Trek to Yomi" 2022.
[4:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With a sultry "Premium Purchase" voice.
[4:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, here's that Phantom Abyss game that I was told in the KoopaTV comments to look out for.
[4:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which I'm pretty sure will be a big favourite of Super Mari0 Maker streamers and the like.
[4:45 PM] HeavyLobster: It's a normal games store presented with lots of memes about other services that are less savory in their monetization tactics.
[4:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Asynchronous multiplayer dungeon-trekking (with failed attempts being represented as phantoms) with Steam Early Access as of June 22.
[4:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Another game with a very Wild Western style but comic-y and very animated.
[4:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...And everyone looks like a Black Mage but in cowboy hats.

I like the art style here!


[4:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Wizard With a Gun" oh hey that's intentional then.
[4:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Something about multiplayer survival something or other.
[4:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (It's coming to the Switch in 2022.)
[4:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And they showed another game called Death's Door, but this one is on the Xbox ecosystem instead.
[4:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're trying to say that there's a sale on Devolver's catalogue.
[4:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For a limited time.
[4:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now there's an "inky black card-based odyssey"...wotever that means.
[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Inscryption" well it's freaky so wotever. >_>
[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And now for something completely different. A trailer with a grown man on the toilet who likes videogames.
[4:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Devolver Tumble Time"
[4:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Turn real money into pretend money and spend it."
"Collect your favourite characters you've never heard of!" Sounds about right.
[4:55 PM] HeavyLobster: This is actually starting to get really annoying. It's not even wrong, but I'm tired of hearing about it.
[4:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm pretty sure this is gonna be half an hour total so... ...It's gonna end.
[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nina pulled out "Demon Trottle" as a "physical box set" on the Nintendo Switch.
[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: *Demon Throttle
[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Will not be available digitally, apparently.
[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Starting today.
[4:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Physical only. I like the sound of that.
[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It reminds me of, uh, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons.

That snow ogre in the top right is just the the Great Moblin from The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages.


[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Except it's a bullet hell.
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (They're making NFT memes.)
[5:01 PM] HeavyLobster: Felt kinda tryhard to me.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright they're doing credits where everyone's in masks.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...so I guess it's COVID-compliant.
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://merch.devolverdigital.com/products/devolver-maxpass-non-fuckwithable-tape
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's sold out already.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For $1000, and the proceeds went to Scratch.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, that's cute. I guess.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can say it's tryhard but it's better than the Ubisoft Forward. >_>
[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Congrats Devolver, you're winning E3 2021! (So far.)
[5:04 PM] HeavyLobster: I mean that was a given.
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...eh, well, you know.



That's all from KoopaTV for E3 2021 on Saturday. Come back on Sunday for when Devolver will probably be dethroned as the king of E3 2021.


The previous E3 2021 live reaction was, as referenced, Ubisoft's.
The last time KoopaTV reacted to a Devolver Digital presentation was E3 2019.
