I sure as hell thought so. I would have been highly surprised if Bethesda gave those ungrateful, incompetent fucks any business ever again.

New Vegas sold like 11 million copies. Yeah, Bethesda would HATE another half a billion dollars in sales.

That said, it'd suck if this was untrue. I was actually pretty excited about the idea of Fallout:LA

Last time they announced a new IP they canceled it five or so months later, so eh.

In Fallout 4 you had to side with either the Railroad, The Institute, or Brotherhood of Steel, and I think you could save the Minutemen. There was no way to get all 3.

Well, yeah, I mean, they're literally diametrically opposed. Kind of hard to make peace between all of them.

In New Vegas they gave you extra options (if I remember this correctly) that you could get most of the factions together in one way or another by the end of the game.

Not so that the Legion and Cali Free State guys would be friends. They were also literally diametrically opposed. So in that way, it's exactly the same way as FO4.

Because I am HATING Nuka-World because I HAVE to be a evil bastard to enjoy the content.

? Why? You can do all the content in the park, and then when the raiders tell you to go and conquer settlements in the commonwealth, you shoot one of them in the face, wipe out all of them (warning, heavy-ass power armor and weapons HIGHLY required), give the park back to the traders, and go on your merry way.

Fallout New Vegas 2??

Obsidian or GTFO.


It would almost have to be. There's no way Todd Howard's team would have another game ready this quick. (Unless it's still five years out.)

This news is typical Square Enix, anyway. They massively overestimate sales making it impossible for games to meet expectations. Remember when Tomb Raider 2013 was a best seller, 3.4 million copies sold in a month, but according to Square Enix its performance was disappointing because they wanted to sell 6 million? If they managed expectations and budgets more sensibly they wouldn't have this problem.

IIRC, it was even worse. it had sold 6 million and they had expected 12 to 13 million. They're all a bunch of fucking morons at that publisher.

Never buy the cheap stuff, Reynolds Wrap or bust.
There is only one https://www.amazon.com/Reynolds-632-Length-Heavy-Duty-Aluminum/dp/B004NG90YO Luckily in comes in this small portable size for personal use.

a review
When it comes to cranial shielding and the ongoing struggle to keep the contents of one's brain private and secure, I always say that only the best will do. That's why I endorse this foodservice quality, five-hundred-foot roll of REYNOLDS EXTRA HEAVY-DUTY ALUMINUM FOIL. Sure, it costs more than the common supermarket-grade foil, but it's a BIG roll full of THICK aluminum foil to best resist intrusive, penetrating rays by Major League Baseball, the National Security Agency and other nosy-parker bureaucrats constantly waging war on our personal thoughts and freedoms. I just wear my usual restaurant-size steel colander in "helmet" style after lining it generously with Reynold's best. Easy to do, flexible, and comfortable. Sure, I sometimes get funny looks and strip searches in airports, but that's a small price to pay for peace of mind, isn't it? Also, if any is left over, you can line casserole pans with it. Highest recommendation.

Thanks for explaining his Reynolds Wrap comment, I admit I was a bit confused. That's hilarious.

Yep, just like how putting TypeR stickers on your lowered Civic makes its top speed significantly closer to the speed of light.

But... but... V-TEC YO!

News Comments > Torment Stretch Goal Changes
35. Re: Torment Stretch Goal Changes Jan 30, 2017, 11:03 Creston
 
Eh, I think it's pretty shitty of them to not reveal their "We're not doing all the stretch goals you guys paid for" bit until right before release, but on the flipside, if they're saying "we cut two not very interesting companions, and made the others cooler instead" then I think that's probably a wash or even a win for the players.

Still looking forward to it. And they did a ton of support on Wasteland 2, so I really have no worries about them not supporting Torment.

That said, damn, this was originally supposed to come out in December 2014? I didn't even realize it had been that long ago.

Shame, because they're very good games. It's sad that Mankind Divided didn't sell well.

2) Most companies won't store your CC info unless you specifically ask them to.

That's amusing, and also untrue. The whole "remember my CC info for future ease of purchase" option that you uncheck doesn't actually make them forget your CC info, it just makes it so it won't auto-repopulate the info next time it detects your PC on that website. The CC info itself is most definitely stored on their servers, and often unencrypted.


It may even be illegal to do without your consent.

It is actually illegal for them to NOT keep a record of a CC transactions. To stop the terrorists, you see.

If you're worried about them stealing it, your CC has fraud protection which means you'll be reimbursed for charges that you don't make.

Sure. If you can prove to their satisfaction that it wasn't you, and if you're fine with waiting "a few weeks" to get your money back.

I can't count how many companies I've used my credit card through. I watch my statements but haven't ever seen anything suspicious.

You have been very fortunate. I would immediately run out and knock on roughly 17000 pieces of wood.
