Shouldn't a reporter be fair and tell the truth?

When he/she isn't bought, you mean? He gave you a 1/10 because you didn't pay him/her any money.

If you are interested in fair reviews, i currenly recommend the one on gamespot.

Fair as in: We paid Gamespot for a good review.

Creston
There you go spouting nonsense again. Did you check the review score they got from Gamespot? It isn't a good review, but it seems fair.

Who are buying all these games? I don't know anyone who has bought this game.

The same people who buy Angry Birds. MW3 has a hardcore following but it's one of the few "hardcore games" that's managed to make a mainstream transition. If you are one of the millions of console owners who bought the system but only buy one or two games a year for it, you're probably buying this. Like Angry Birds, it doesn't matter that it's not very good or that there's a ton of better choices, it's a household name and that alone sells it.
Ugh, Angry Birds sucks. These people should be playing Arkanoid or something instead.

Fallout NV is great in the same way Skyrim is great. It has the same downfalls too.

I also love the game, and I think it is their best yet. I just want them to actually have a new engine for the next game.


I've thought about this Creation Engine's newness a bit: maybe for legal reasons Bethesda HAVE to refer to it as a new engine.

Nobody believes the Creation Engine is but a Gamebryo 1.2. If it isn't the same engine (updated), then Bethesda have gone to great lengths to mimic and emulate the peculiarities and horriblenessities of Gamebryo in their brand new shiny Creation Engine.

I enjoyed FlatOut 1 and 2. I liked the music better in 1, but 2 had better tracks and multiplayer support... so overall, it was a good "evolutionary" improvement.

FlatOut 3 looks like utter garbage. Why the fuck isn't Bugbear making this?
Probably sold the IP to stay alive, or they had already sold the IP and the company that originally had the rights sold them again.

Looked at the trailers, and I'm getting the sinking feeling that this new installment is going to suck and suck hard.
It is not made by series creator Bugbear Entertainment, but Team6 game studios. I bet it will suck, indeed.

Can you give us some examples of their poor developer relations Bludd? I'm not sure what AMD releasing drivers to fix bugs has to do with that either, AMD has a team that works with developers and publishers already. That doesn't mean publishers test against their hardware as thoroughly as they do for Nvidia, particularly in this day and age of console ports where the PC platform in general takes a backseat.

Still not impressed with AMD recently. My card requires Crossfire to perform properly and with games like RAGE and Skyrim it has taken weeks to months to support Crossfire and to perform well. I completed RAGE before they even supported Crossfire, though apparently SLI still isn't possible and likely won't be supported.

Crossfire and SLI will always be a niche thing unfortunately, I used to have just as many problems when I ran SLI cards. You're better off with a single card in most scenarios even if it is the highest priced SKU they offer.
Example is they have released 4 hotfixes in a month, they screwed up the Rage launch. Last year about this time they also released many hotfixes.

They seem to be on the back foot all the time and they do have devrel, but it isn't as good as nvidia's devrel and they need to get on top of that.

Let's call it what it is, sacks full of money.
You seem to think nvidia has unlimited money.

Happy? Most people detest installing drivers and they get angry if they have to worry about that shit. AMD is not scoring any points with this stuff, btw. Test your drivers, do it right, not patch, patch patch as they have been doing for the last month.

Maybe Mom & Pop but their core market wanted more driver releases so that's AMD delivered, it was one of the biggest complaints leveled at AMD other than driver quality in the past. Many of the releases are betas or hotfixes that are not meant to be applied by everyone either, they are specific fixes for things like Crossfire updates or to fix bugs that cannot wait for a WHQL release.

When publishers don't get a pile of money from you they don't spend as much time testing on your stuff which in turn leads to compatibility problems that need to be fixed. This is even more of a problem these days because PCs are often second class citizens when it comes to publisher resources in the first place. That's life on the PC, the grass isn't much greener on the other side either. Nvidia issues a fair amount of beta releases every year too. I'll take frequent releases over waiting six months for AMD/Nvidia to fix things any day of the week.
It is years ago since AMD started monthly driver updates. Nvidia have been doing it roughly at the same rate for a while now, but this last month AMD have churned out how many more (4? 6?) than Nvidia's 2?

I'd rather have higher quality drivers than many updates in a short amount of time.

Good job, Blizzard. This is like Ford making a big announcement that they will launch a car with ABS.
Too bad that in this case, all other cars don't have ABS at all.
Way to miss the point. ABS isn't new and nobody announces it.
