Combo cards kinda sucked (at first). Anyone who really cared about image quality usually had a Matrox Millennium for 2D/desktop and one or two (SLI) 3Dfx Voodoo 1 or 2 for 3D.

The fact that all of the game mechanics changes are included in free QoL patches is awesome.

See, I don't get that sentiment AT ALL. What exactly is "awesome" about a piecemeal delivery? What is awesome about getting game mechanics delivered YEARS later that should have been (and were most likely planned to be) in the game from the start?

I don't get it... they have successfully brainwashed people into thinking they are getting a service (GaaS) with these essential DLCs while in reality the consumer sheeple are getting fleeced, milked and shat on.

To me they are shittier than EA, Ubi and Actiblizz combined. GaaS delivered in piecemeal fashion with fraudulent tactics. They have taken the worst shit of all that EA et al are doing and mixed up their own super-shit cocktail from the collective diarrhea.
The only piece that is missing, the proverbial cherry on top of the shit cocktail, would in fact be the introduction of loot boxes. Any day now...

Errr... they are worse than EA wrt DLC. They intentionally release barebone versions of their games with cut content so they can then slowly feature-complete the games one DLC at a time and milk gamers until the udders bleed.

To add insult to injury, they have all but stopped doing GOTYs or complete editions of their newer games or -even worse- are offering fake complete editions to intentionally mislead gamers, e.g. Europa Universalis Extreme Edition which might lead an unsuspecting gamer who does not do their full research into buying this version, thinking they will be getting all the DLC which is absolutely not the case with the "extreme edition".
The only thing it is it's extreme bullshit is all it is. Extreme rip-off. Extremely retarded fuckshit.

Honestly. Fuck this greedy, fraudulent asshole company hard.

... so they'd better have everything else polished up real nice.

Well, they don't. We can see in the gameplay videos that combat and animations are clunky as fuck. It's terribad.

There is still hope though that maybe they got the quests, the writing, the politics and the characters right.

Oh well... as usual I won't be touching this before there is a GOTY on sale. Maybe they will have even unclunkified the combat by then and added some more layers of polish. I'm only cautiously optimistic. Everything I have seen so far looked underwhelming.

I'm still looking forward to PoEt2 with great anticipation, and I'll hopefully be playing it relatively bug free on release day.

ROFL ... keep dreaming

I'm also looking forward to it but just like PoE1 and Tyranny I will be waiting for the fully patched complete version. I quite liked PoE in spite of its issues but I was soooo glad I waited for the finished game with the White Marches 1 + 2 included for a seamless grand adventure.

It just wouldn't have been the same positive experience at an earlier point in time.
I have seen so many comments from gamers who said that PoE release version and final version + DLC were a night & day difference (and I partially experienced it myself, too, because I played some PoE beta which was shitty as hell).

You'd have to be extremely impatient or a masochist to play an Obshittian game at release but to each their own... I won't be touching it with a 10ft pole until the GOTY sells for $20.

The problem was, Obsidian got a LOT of complaints on their forums from people who found the 6 person PoEt party too hard to control. X|

Um, the only reason it was "hard to control" is because the amateur hacks at Obshittian could not hack their collective dumb asses out of a soaking wet paper bag if their fucking lives depended on it.

The pathfinding was abysmal and absolutely outrageous on higher difficulties when you had to rely on every character to actually work as intended.
Instead of doing what they should, they got stuck on each other though, tripped over each other or ran in circles in a spot like they had a mental disorder.

Personally I like the reduction to 5 characters. Aside from being easier to handle it also forces you to choose more wisely. Six characters is way too n00b friendly. Any full retard n00blet moron can build a very well balanced party when you have six slots.

The less party members, the more important your choices. And an odd number like 5 is great, too, because you can't just n00b it up with 2 tanks, 2 dps, 2 healers but you will have to choose. Choice is good. Me gusta mucho. Well done for once, Obshittian!

On the serious side in my view this guy's actions in this case do not paint him as a pedophile at all. At worst a perv or a creep.

^ this

"Real" pedos -by definition- are really only into minors whose primary and secondary sexual characteristics are not fully developed yet. In plain English: The girl can't have boobs for a pedo.

This girl here was 15 years old so she certainly had (developing) boobs. This does indeed put this Cliffe guy more in the category of a perv (teen girl lover).

Her young age obviously played a major role here. Whether he really thought she was 18 seems very unlikely to me. More likely he was specifically looking for under age girls who advertise themselves as 18+ (like "hey I'm 18 OK? *wink* *wink*").
You know, like some of those teen pr0n sites that claim that all models were 18+ but who really checks on that? Good luck even tracking down and finding some anonymous Eastern European pr0n starlet for asking.

Anyway, zero sympathies for this guy. You gotta have control where you stick your dick. Simple as that. He took a risk, probably got a kick out of the whole "teeny" thing and fell flat on this face. Shit happens. Deal with it.

So having boobs makes the difference? Young enough to bleed, young enough to breed?

Have you talked to a 15 year old girl recently?

Make the difference for what and why would I need to talk to a 15 year old? What are you insinuating?

I believe I made myself clear enough that the development of sexual characteristics makes the difference for whether someone is a pedophile. That's basically the whole definition of pedophilia. Pedos immediately lose interest in "kids" (young teens) as soon as the primary and secondary sexual characteristics begin to develop.

So this rules out that Cliffe is a pedo in the "scientific" or biological sense.
He's not. He's just attracted to young girls.
And let's get real... every man with a functioning dick is attracted to girls as soon as they got boobs and typical female shapes (wide hips and some ass etc.).
The difference between (hopefully!) many of us and Cliffe is that we draw a line and are better at abiding by established societal rules.

If someone were a "pedo" if you are attracted to girls <16, well, then many countries all over the world are "pedo states" apparently, especially the entire Muslim world where it's normal for 12/13 year olds to get married and have sex.

No, man. Cliffe is a major fucking asshole for exploiting this minor (even if she "voluntarily" prostituted herself and supposedly lied about her age) but he ain't a pedo.

News Comments > Far Cry Season Pass Details
10. Re: Far Cry Season Pass Details Feb 3, 2018, 12:58 CJ_Parker
 
Yeah, including fucking FC3 in their season pass is like a creative declaration of bankruptcy.

I'm generally about as anti-season pass as it gets but if you gotta have a season pass then why not, you know, expand on the game it is related to? What a concept!

So they don't have more FC5-themed stories to tell in and around Montana? No ideas how to explore (add depth) to a loose story thread or an interesting character (or two) of the base game?

With the inclusion of FC3, they are really admitting here up front that they suck ass and that the season pass is one of the shittiest value propositions ever.

It also does not bode well for the quality/quantity of the three DLC packs.
The mere fact that they seem to feel like they must include something on top of those three DLCs is telling us that they know exactly that season pass owners would be pissed if they only got those three apparently very meager DLCs... which are probably already finished or why else would they throw in FC3?
They already know exactly that those three DLCs are very short and mostly crap. Count on it.

Of course. Disney made EA push 'pause' for Episode VIII. Now that the Episode VIII hype has come to an end, EA gets their free reign in fucking over consumers back again.
And to make up for the losses in revenue in December, I'm sure they'll come up with something extra-fucked.

Those sales numbers are just sad. Nine million mouthbreathers. Just goes to show that the vast majority of gamers have a spine weaker than a gummy bear's.
