Other people in the game world look down on her for her '[lesbian] bedroom proclivities'. I couldn't help but notice that not only did the story writers put in a relationship of this type [homosexual] in the game, but they also had to put in a persecution complex on her situation.

Also
Moral Warnings: lesbian love relationship

So lesbians are immoral, but people looking down on homosexuality is a persecution complex. Riiiiight.

That makes it sound like Guy Fawkes is gonna do an improv show or something :p

Guy Fawkes Night - It's The Bomb! He'll Bring Down The House [Of Lords]!

I've never heard it called Guy Fawkes Day, that sounds a bit weird to me too.

they have no one to blame but themselves. wow didnt die because it got old.. it died because the developer shot themselves in the foot from lack of content and deciding they knew what the players wanted more than the players did.

Developers do know what players want more than players do. Players are idiots who fall for things like anecdotes, confirmation bias and tribalism. Devs should listen to players and consider what's said but ultimately the developer has to have the overall vision.

I have nightmares about more and more PC gamers using the gamepad, to a point where developers of FPS games stop supporting the mouse... It's already somewhat happening in some games...

This is why the Xbone controller being included with the Oculus Rift worries me. A controller is good for VR as you don't need to see it but I really don't this to become the only way.

My original point was that it is not a game-breaking level of control difference (like say playing Q3 with a gamepad... lol) to blindly label FO4 as a "bad port" just because ABXY buttons show up in a screenshot.

I took the mention of ABXY buttons to be criticising the dialogue options, not the quality of the port. We can't tell anything about the port from these options because we don't know how it is being controlled. It might be perfectly appropriate.

I love how thrown off people are by the A B X Y buttons on the screen, as if there was any advantage to playing FO3/NV with a mouse+KB over a gamepad. It's not a twitch shooter, who gives a shit? You all really have to start getting over this one, just because a mouse works better for competitive FPS doesn't make gamepad support indicative of a "bad port" problem.

I much prefer using a KB&M to using a controller for this sort of game, to the extent that I sold my console because most games weren't enjoyable.

There's more to wanting a mouse than accuracy, as if that's an odd thing to want even in a slow paced single player game.

I think this is looking pretty good. It's not a huge step up over (modded) Fallout 3/NV but if the open world is detailed enough, I don't expect each scene to look quite as cutting edge as a corridor shooter. In particular the distant content looks more detailed, that's usually the first thing that needs modded.

There's plenty about the Creation Engine that needs work more than the graphics. Have they said if there are loading screens when going inside? I hope that removing this is a priority for Bethesda's 8th-gen console open world games.

Four dialogue options is worrying. I don't think FO3/NV had more than 4 options in 95% of cases so with tighter writing it shouldn't be too bad but it does feel like a step backwards.

I'm glad they acknowledge this, thanks for pointing that out. I don't mind developers taking inspiration from others - all games do to some extent - but IMHO they lifted too much from GDS to ignore.

I'm not familiar with Game Tycoon at all, I mistook this for GDT at first.

I bet Greenheart Games is ecstatic at the thought of people thinking this is a sequel to their superb Game *Developer* Tycoon!

They kinda ripped off Game Dev Story, I wouldn't feel sorry for them.

$0.65 EPS? Doing some quick and dirty math, that's about a $200m profit for the quarter (estimating, based on share price and market cap, they've got about 300 million shares outstanding).

Dude? Why "quick and dirty math" or "about" and "estimating" if you can just, you know, click the link and scroll down a bit to find out that it's $212 million net profit and 326 million shares.
No need to whip out the calculator if others have done the work for you!

Good estimates, TBF.

I dont know if it was the graphics or the animations but the people seemed a little "blocky" looking....particularly the arms?

The way 47's arm swings seems very rigid, I think some animation needs more work. It looks very good otherwise.

Not *may* lose revenue. If someone signs up for a service, uses that service to view your monetized content, and your payout is a weighted percentage of the subscription fee the service is meant to be collecting from them, then any percentage of $0.00 is $0.00.

The people that are going to subscribe to a commercial free service? Those aren't the people who already have ad-blockers installed.

Yes I am. I use an adblocker but I intend to subscribe to this when it is available because I do want content creators and content hosters to get paid.

Besides, just because subscribers aren't paying doesn't mean that the content creators need to lose out.

I'll definitely wait for some reports before buying. I haven't been following it closely to avoid hype but I am very likely to buy it ... if it's not a mess.

I'm tempted to get a subscription, but that is a bit pricey. I would rather throw a few bucks a month at a site I visit often than see ads, including Bluesnews.

I can understand why creators are effectively being forced to agree to this. YouTube needs this content to be available ad-free to subscribers or the whole subscription service is pointless.

I'm pretty sure we're all at least 3 times the age of PewDiePie's audience and at the risk of sounding like a cultural sophisticate, most of us have at least 3 times the IQ as well.
