Shooting through walls happened in the previous game too. "Full cover" doesn't mean you can't be hit. It just means that enemies have a greatly reduced chance to hit you.

Also, it goes both ways. You can shoot enemies through walls too.

No no. It's actually shooting through walls(no LOS) to hit someone, not full cover. I'll see if I can grab some video of it in a bit. It's kind of like this video I ran across a few days ago where the enemies are jumping through floors.

Did you... did you just compare copyright law to slavery?

Apparently they did. Copyright laws are broken as fuck, but comparable to slavery? They're just insane.

The longer I have the game running, the more I start to see stutters in-game. Relaunch and it's not a big deal.

Honestly it hasn't been more than a minor annoyance anyway

Not supporting piracy or anything, but I grabbed the crack for my copy and I've been able to play for 4-5 hours without it stuttering, the transition screen fps drop is still there. There are plenty of other bugs, pathing I think the biggest. So far I've seen enemies walk through walls/windows, and enemies jump through floors to get at your soldiers.

How about just another Dragon Age game like the first one? That's all many people have ever wanted and Bioware has continually failed to deliver.

^ this

RPG, please, and no problem with turn-based combat. A Dragon Age game that plays kind of like Divinity Original Sin would be fine with me.

That's what a lot of people would like. The last one was okay, but it was still suffering from consolitis.

This gamergate crap still going huh, lol.

/pro.rant

Yep, and people are still calling out their bullshit and still going after their money. And they're still whining every time someone calls them out on their bullshit, and start screaming "but you're going after us because of internalized sexism/racism/homophobia" or some other pile of shit instead of wondering why people are so pissed off.

Fucking game press, this could have been over in a week. But they decided to take the cronyism and mouth to asshole approach.

GOTY it won't be called. FO4 won 0 GOTY awards (for good reason - its a popamole shooter). My prediction is that it will instead be called "Fallout 4 Definitive/Ultimate Edition" or something similar.

That'd be my guess. The entire storyline is mediocre, the building stuff? Neat. But at that the game ranks out at a 6/10.

Sadly Bethesda, you guys haven't figured out that trying to milk people like this is just going to increase piracy.

Bioware pretty much sucks have been irrelevant to me for quite a while. IMO the more people that quit... the better chance they have to putting out a respectable game again.

New to this stuff huh? That's okay. Enjoy Bioware while you can, Papi EA will be taking it out back and putting it down just like Maxis, EA and Origin soon enough.

Accused terrorists have more options in court then a Copy-right infringement defendant it seems.

If they had their way, you could commit manslaughter and be out earlier.

BG2 was an absolute masterpiece of PC RPGing. Its expansion pack was also flawless and added hours upon hours of content for the game. The odds of creating a BG3 to rival BG2 are one hundred to one, or worse!

There are two games that rank in terms of masterpieces of cRPG's, in order: Planescape: Torment and BG2+ToB. You're right that the chance would be so low it'd be stupid, considering how easy they've made things in the last ~25 years people would be upset if there wasn't highlighted map points.

Right time to go nostalgic, off to play BG and BG2...relive them glory days.

Short answer: Betteridge's law of headlines. Or no.

Sadly, I expect if they make a BG3. It'll be such a gutted piece of garbage that it's only redeeming point is that it should be lit on fire.

Scottish Martial Arts wrote on Feb 14, 2016, 11:20:

Dude, what are you talking about? I'm saying that your indignant over-reaction about rape games is hilarious, nothing more.

The UN can't enforce anything with its member nations; it can only put a seal of disapproval on something. And that disapproval isn't rooted in "pixel feels" its rooted in the tacit approval such games give to the objectification of women and sexual violence against them. That doesn't mean that such games should be banned, but it does mean that an outraged response to an unenforceable tentative proposal, followed by the sexual violence equivalent of "I'm not racist because I have a black friend", makes for awfully entertaining, not to mention revealing, reading.

Showing your ignorance is a good thing. Since this goes beyond "rape games." It also includes visual novels, novels in general, subject matter such as yuri(lesbian) and yaoi(homosexual) content, even consensual sexual imagery within a story. The entire thing is rooted in "pixels have feels" read the bloody garbage yourself, though it might take you 6mo-1yr to learn the prerequisite languages.

But, considering that's exactly what they're trying to pull. You'll have to just excuse me when I say that I've worked on a couple of H-VN's in my last 20 years, that friends of mine are fearing that they'll be thrown in jail or forced out of the industry because someone thinks some character that's getting consensually fucked is 'too extreme.' One of course can't forget that in S.Korea that they've already arrested eroge artists for "moral degeneracy."

Useful tip: S.Korea where a lot of people think this has originated, has recently gone on a fundamentalist push against this type of material. There's been quite a few comments on 2chan and 2ch.net that this mirrors the "sex is bad" from the religious conservatives in the US and Europe in the 1980's, since today's big push is coming from fundamentalist Christians there.

Don't worry, he'll be singing a different tune when they pass a ban like this involving sheep and other farm animals.

On another note maybe they should release these things from Bolivia, apparently the UN not only turns a blind eye on actual sexual abuse/ trafficking but even participates and when caught noone even gets in any trouble.

Stay classy UN.
Considering the stuff going on at the UN headquarters, they really like their child porn. It's one of the most searched and downloaded things coming from them. The entire thing is corrupt as fuck.

But what do you expect when Saudi Arabia is on the human rights council, and women are treated as chattel there.

"I like rape games but its cool because not only do I have female friends, I have female friends in the GAMING industry!"

Well you're sure doing a fine job of showing your fine reasoning skills. So you're saying "fuck you" to an entire group of people who make their money from something, and want to work in that industry because it's lucrative. Very regressive.

To sum up: Stuff happening to pixels bad. People being put out of work good.

Up next: Banning violent movies, because CG animations have feels.

In the face of the greatest refugee crisis in post ww2 history that is in many ways quite cynical as well. The UN, knowing what proper priorities are since, never.
Don't worry, this is the same UN that has buried it's head in the sand over real issues. You know, like sexual slavery, mass-murder, whole-city rapes. All at the same time they're downloading CP, or letting their soldiers sell a half-bag of rice for some 7 year old's virginity.

I'm going to guess that a certain poster's defensive response and the linguistic origin of his handle are indicative of a fondness for the kind of game in question.

Considering I have friends who work in the industry, that'd be where my fondness comes from. And most of those friends who work in the industry are female. Damn them for being artists and programmers and making a living.

I guess it's true, the UN just wants to pay lip service when they say they want more women working in the industries(only particular industries of course...)

If the UN bans media containing sexual violence, the Japanese porn industry will be in shambles.

Impaling someone and pulling a joke about turning them into a shish kabob? Okay. Fictional sexual acts(consensual or not) in porn game....BAD! The german porn industry will be in shambles too.

But you can tell the UN has done a great job, there's no more women being sold into slavery in the middle east. No more women kept as chattel either, no more pre-teen boys being made to dress up as girls and selling themselves either. Problems? SOLVED!

We tracked 3 cryptowall infections back to banner ads that had been compromised and infected last year. Adblocking technology is now mandatory on all company computers and it's made life so much easier.

Yep, we have the same mandatory policy here at work. After 2 similar cases, it was enough to push it into acceptance. Ad companies could have stopped this, but they preferred to double down.

There are several mods that either completely get rid of them, or that give you a larger amount of turns. If you don't want to play with them, you don't have to.

Well for anyone following this thread still, I've experienced my first game-breaking bug which means I've got to start the game from scratch. Another thread on it here.

FFS. That pisses me off to no end, enough to want to get a refund.
