Pretty much all the best mods for Skyrim used "kludgey mini-hacks". If they're not supported anymore, it would be a pretty big deal.

Any great Skyrim mods eventually had access to the editor or where made after it's release, minus UI mods, or any that don't need the editor to function fine in the first place.

All I was saying was, Until Fallout's editor is out people are basically hacking their mods into the game. Thus, it's not surprising to see mods being *easily* broken by a patch.

The creation kit (or w/e it'll be called) isn't out yet, right? I would assume most mods are basically kludgey mini-hacks to begin with at this point anyways.

If they announce they're not releasing the editor then it's time to wtf.

The demo got me hooked into buying it once a 50% off sale hit. It's a much more solid game than I was expecting.

Despite them saying it's all seamless, there's nothing in here that shows that it's seamless, and I remain very skeptical about that claim.

There's a great movie like moment around the 6 minute mark, but the whole vid shows off how seamless moving from ship to station is. Getting into a ship seems a bit tricky, but in a good way.

It would be so nice to just get everything needed for a mod by clicking on it. Just install and go. NEXUS MM is close but still not the ticket...yet.

I can't imagine that working easily with something like Skyrim where everything's like - Ok, Mod A Needs the Unofficial Patch, but Mod B isn't compatible with it without this other compatibility mod, but the unofficial path just got updated and breaks the compatibility mod until IT gets updated, oh btw have you cleaned your Mod C for known dirty edits?

@.@

It's good for ArmA though, a lot of mods depend on the community base addons mod.

There was nothing wrong with the setting. It lends itself to a more tactical shooter more so than the EP IV - VI timeframe anyways.

Agreed, a sequel would have been great. I played through it earlier this year, still holds up. Will give it anther go with this patch somewhere up the road..

News Comments > No Arkham Knight Multi-GPU Support

What gets me about his moronic video is the ramp segment (he's got the ramp on the wrong side). I get the impression he's so eager to rag on developers that he doesn't even think for a half-second when he finds something he feels he can add as ammunition to fuel his "review".

The fight he shows is typically the second mission based fight you get into (so literally the second fight for many). Of course it's a breeze, it's Batman taking out the lowest of thugs. Besides, what does he want? Arkham QWOP? The ease of control helps the player deal with much more difficult fights later (though there's a disappointing boss fight near the end).

News Comments > Fallout 4 Shipped 12M on Day One

I like this game. I'm going to hold off for some immersion / realism mods, but I see myself putting tons of hours into it.

But... I think I understand why this game throws so much of what should be mid to late game elements at you upfront... User reviews have a louder voice these days than professional reviews. In the past you relied on a reviewer who's played the full game, or close to it and given you their impressions. Now people read lets play youtube user comments, steam reviews, etc. more so.

Power armor, mini-gun, building a settlement all in the first hour or so seems like they were trying to hand the players most of the game upfront to cater to immediate user reviews.

I really hope this isn't now part of Bethesda's design philosophy for all their RPG's going forward. The whole crafting system would have been cooler, imo, if you were building a shelter for yourself. Then for companions, and then you come across settlers looking for a home and choose to lead them back to your homestead.

Because the PC port is a $60 catastrophe that can't be played with a mouse/keyboard in its current state and form.

Huh? Left handed people are complaining because you can't map the num-pad keys, but otherwise...?

Holy hell @.@

Steam prices ( --> $59.99 <-- ) are MSRP, not the GMG prices. Those are more like a grey market price.

So they're saying you can force SLI to the ...ugh, I forget. There's like 4 options, it's the last option, something like alternate render 2 or something. Sorry I can't be more exact.

Nice, thanks.

Yes, they all had SLI. From what I understand it's a lot easier to implement SLI in DX9 games, that's why pretty much everything from that era had it.

The problem with the frame rate lock is hoping the physics don't wig out over 60. In Skyrim as soon as I use NVInspector to set the frame rate limit to over 80 the physics start going crazy.

80 is still a nice improvement, but it's going to kinda suck if this happens at 61+ in this game. SLI would be nice too.

There are a bunch of screencaps of the PC version (on ultra settings) that leaked over the last few days. PC version ain't that pretty either.

Yeah, that's not too awe inspiring. "Atmospheric" isn't a word I would use to describe any of that.

Graphical overhauls will be bigger than usual winners in the mod community for this one, I think. Still getting the game for sure.

And that's what I did, I'm now back to a SoundBlaster (sorry I ever left you, honey).

After having owned both types of headphones I prefer the fake 3D over discrete, because a $150 fake stereo headphone has much better quality speakers than a $150 5.1 with 6 cheap drivers.

Back when you could set the speaker config to 5.1 the dolby headphone tech did a completely respectable job at emulating 3D with the Logitechs, and that's what I'm able to do again with the soundcard.

The only thing that looked "like shit" was the character models and faces but that was 100% an issue of Bethesda just not trying harder and a poor artistic direction in that area.

The game ran "like shit" on average cheap-ass PCs because it was graphically the creme de la creme at the time. It was naturally very demanding. With a decent high end rig it actually ran totes fine though.

The engine lacked occlusion culling because of the way it rendered, also it didn't support geometry instancing. Bethesda would stick full model assets into the ground but not remove the geometry that wasn't visible (rocks, houses, etc). With no culling the game would still render all of it. This lead to worse than expected performance at the time.

But yes, the game looked great.

They did flat out say they would make one more game after Skyrim with the same engine (from interviews around the time of Skyrim's launch), which seems to imply the next one after F4 should be something new. Not going to hold my breath, but there it is...

Just like the next Elder Scrolls has to be Summerset Isles because all the (main) releases are in alphabetical order. *nod*


Got a source on that? that would be welcome news, I just seem to remember skyrim being touted as a "new engine" which was miles ahead of oblivion, and well yeah.

Did a quick search. Must have been one specific interview that stuck with me. Everything I found said they'll use it for future titleS after Skyrim.

I think Hines has been on the record in the last 18 months stating they were staying with this engine for as far as they plan out.
