I just started playing but I just might wait for the early patches in case of game-stopping bugs

Same. I don't actually know if patches are expected or particularly required given the length and openness of the beta but as I need to restart (character build was awful as I didn't know what anything meant), I figure it's worth waiting.

I'd like to see a bit more content, the biggest disappointment is that each random encounter against raiders takes place in the same map - as Creston pointed out to me previously, this is understandable given the budget but if they're planning to add content then that's where I'd like to see it.

What game-stopping bugs? Only problem I get is a few graphical artifacts here and there with Vsync off at 120Hz, but I've yet to run into any crashes or major bugs. Kinda' surprised actually.

Most of my complaints fall into the stuff already mentioned here with shallow combat. I epxected to be much darker and grittier. It just seems a bit fluffy for a post-apoc CRPG. And yeah, at least some vatiation in maps and mobs for random encounters would be nice? Where are the rad scorpions and crazy shit like that?

Awesome, glad it's doing so well for them.

Love the game. Made it to the Mad Monks last night, and just love the story in that entire area.


I loved that part, re-did it though as I wasn't sure which side to pick or not to pick, but dead funny when a monk blows itself up (don't stand to close or you'll be naked)

Fucking spoilers yo! Secret text!

Woo! Packers are number 8 overall!

And no shit the Maple Laffs are dead last. Growing up in Toronto the one thing worse than being a Leaf fan is being surrounded by them. It's really more akin to a cult. Those people are waaaaaay out of touch with reality. At the start of every season they're just rationalizing away like mad how this, somehow this will be the year they'll go all the way. It's really beyond sad when you're watching it first hand.

As a long time bartender I'd be standing behind the bar as the drunken louts desperately try to convince themselves the Leafs are worth loving. That they'll somehow win. That the MLSE isn't just some hearltess corporation that only cares about money and that so long as they keep making money hand over fist that they know they'll never have to buy a winning team anyway. Forty-seven years since a cup. Hell the last time they even made the playoffs was what? 15 years ago now?

The Leafs will never win in my life time. In my 40s now and even if I live to be 100 I still sincerely doubt they'll ever win another cup. The MLSE knows they don't have to pay for a winning team, so they won't. The Leaf "nation" will still be there regardless, forking over their cash for Leaf merchandise up the wazoo, and still telling themselves each new seasons that this is the year they do it! Someone could do a doctoral dissertation on mass-delusion by studying the 'Leaf Effect'.

I've never understood the hate for Blizzard. In truth, except for the mis-step that was Diablo 3, I haven't seen much that they're creatively falling apart. I mean, Did I agree with a lot of their WoW decisions? No. But I also never felt that they weren't doing what they thought was best for the game.

Therein lies the disconnect. They were not making creative decisions on anything beyond Burning Crusade. They were making stockholder decisions. Big difference. Diablo III is the same animal. From a business perspective, the only thing any rational person can do is give them a standing ovation. They are riding their IP and developing it for the widest possible adoption rate. From the creative standpoint....it is now McDonalds.

Spot on, thank you.

Lol Pit, nice one.

And lulz Actiblizz. Nodick must be going fucking apoplectic right now! WoW shedding numbers, no replacement in sight and probably a 100+ mil down the drain.

I don't know how people can talk about Actiblizz and quality in the same sentence, when you look at all their properties and what they've become. I suspect that this wasn't probably all that terrible but wouldn't be a big enough hit for Actiblizz's shareholders so they yanked it instead.

Shareholders aren't usually into "yanking" games. Most people say shit games are released BECAUSE of shareholders. You can't have it both ways.

You know what happens to shareprice when companies don't meet expectactions? You know what happens to management that lets that happen? Better - for them - to swallow the loss and take it as a write-down then the former.

No, the problem is the US system. Most places you have to opt in to be part of crap like that, in the US you have to opt out, which is bullshit.

They should utilize a more Bauhaus/retro-future/art-deco design and use Kraftwerk's We Are The Robots as the theme song.

My mind is always boggled by people who actually like pageants. Particularly with those insane mothers parading their little girls around in those fucked up shows. How is that even legal? Well, I guess if you can brainwash your kids into a religion almost anything else goes, right?

Howzabout a new UI? Some good skins for that UI? The ability to actually remove stuff from our libraries like old betas and such? How about actually really ending Greenlight and stop adding every piece of crap there is to Steam?

Great comment about that Lamestop article....

I wanted to comment on the quote above: good at "discovery, curation and customer acquisition". What a bunch of BS market speak. Discovery ? You mean looking at what's available . Curation ? You mean storage. Customer acquisition : You mean advertising.

Gee - you mean you are a retailer. I can't stand this kind of euphemistic crap.

Indeed. Steam already has 75 million unique customers and will keep growing. Lamestop needs them, not the other way around. They know their days are numbered they're just trying to cling on like any outmoded business - Blockbuster anyone?
