Are ad blockers legal? Is that a serious question? Might as well wonder if sun guards in vehicles are legal since they can prevent you from seeing billboards.

It's a good thing there is no such thing as online games 'journalism' then. There's online games 'pandering', and online games 'opinion pieces which are blatantly bought and paid for.'

So I won't really miss the online games 'look at what we copy/pasted from the press release statement' websites all that much. If I'm really that desperate to learn about how AAA Game 5.0 does So Many Awesome Things With Teh Graphiks, I can just go read the press release on the publisher's site.

Stop serving up bullshit irritating ads and hiding behind the convenient "We didn't know {adnetwork A} was serving these up! It's not our fault!" excuses.


tl;dr : Cry me a fucking river.

Yeah next thing you know CDPR will start charging 400 dollars for new horse breeds that will be implemented some time in the unspecified future.

Isn't the whole point of these kind games so that you DON'T have to look people in the eye?


Looking people in the eye is the $90M stretch goal. But it's not feature creep, even though it's something that gets added later. We've just changed the definition of feature creep.

Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. So far we have enjoyed a zero percent success rate in this regard.

However, we're batting 1.000 when it comes to breaking Mods!

Yep. And EA does the absolute bear (badum psshh!) minimum to stay ahead. If they'd just put some actual money into their stupid platform, they could easily make it better than Steam, but like everything else done by EA, it's just half-assed.

No kidding. And coincidentally (??), ever since Ubisoft has started sucking ass so much again, EA hasn't done shit to Origin anymore. I guess they figure that as long as UPlay sits out there stinking the joint up, nobody smells their slightly sour funk.

The Fahking Powah Aaahmah looks pretty cool. I'm guessing it was just there as a "use once in this mission" kinda deal.

I believe that to be the first time you use it, but once you have your own set of armor, you keep it and can use it, upgrading it to be more powerful as you go along. Maybe some kind of consumable fuel requirement so you're not in it the whole time.

That'd be cool. It was honestly way too easy to get power armor in both FO3 and FO:NV.


I'm holding my judgment on the game as a whole until I play it. They really didn't show that much of Skyrim before it came out, either, and people made a lot of the same cynical comments about dumbing it down and being the same old engine, but it's still one of the greatest fucking games of all time. Any criticism it received was always followed by that qualifier. Bethesda Game Studio gets a pass with me.

Oh yeah, like I said, I will undoubtedly very much enjoy it, but they seem to have simply copy-pasted quite a lot of the FO3 textures straight into this game. After seven years and so much waffling on their end on was it being made yes or no, I really expected them to come out and blow everyone away, and it's just... eh. It'll be cool to play another modern FO, but it really just feels like Falskaar for Fallout.

Who will do the Powered Dog Armor add-in first, the mod'ers or official DLC?

p.s. It'll need a mini laser turret.

Haha. I give it 24 hours before that's online on the nexus.

I'm still going to enjoy playing this, but again it really just looks just Fallout 3.5. 7 years, and this is all they came up with...

I hereby offer to foot the entire costs of this effort. And I will put up to $1m of my own money, in an escrow account of an attorney’s choosing, to be used as-needed for this exercise.

Not mentioned is that the thing was probably sold for $175 during one of Best Buy's deals, and that it's already dropped twice in price.

That said, I'm happy with it, having spent only $175 on it. The two games that I really wanted to play, Forza Horizons 2 and Sunset Overdrive, are pretty damn awesome.

I want the PS4 to drop in price so I can get the Nathan Drake HD thing, and the FF7 remake, though. (apparently, they're also going to do a SuperHD remaster of FFX for the PS4, which I'd probably get again like a sucker.)
