    When you (and 50,000 other people) try to own Polygon but you don't understand what words or sales are
    First article was correct in that it sold significantly worse than all but the Gamecube version which it only slightly beat, Deluxe is also a new updated version for a system not announced at the time making the articles not even connected. You are supposed to do article side by side comparisons like this when they are written by the same person not two different people, and "life comes at you fast" is for things that happen around three days later not three years later. Pewdiepie also shared a stolen version of the tweet giving this a total of about 50,000 people whose brains have been so rotted by memes that they don't even know how the memes work anymore.
