Combat and movement were vastly improved in FO4. It now feels pretty close to a real shooter.

OK, that's a phrase I never want to hear associated with Fallout. Or Elder Scrolls.

Not sure why they would choose to associate their product (by name) with the previous game having such a (horrendous) legacy. Maybe attention? Maybe they don't know how bad it was over there?

And who keeps saying it's $70? It'll be $50 after the price hike. If they truly intend on offering more content I don't see how it's a big deal that they announce a price increase WELL in advance.

I'm guessing the people who have a shitty exchange rate.

I am thinking about opening up a 80s arcade here in Texas. Man, I miss the arcades and fighting games. How everyone got into the close matches; everyone knew each other. Flawless Victory, FATALITY! Bring it!

I was just telling a younger coworker about Games People Play, which was an arcade chain here in the midwest in the 80s.

Different world back then. And there was Gameworks in the 90s, that I'd always hit in Las Vegas. They actually had a local Quake setup, where multiple players could play at the same time. But I think they folded, too...

edit: Or not! Might have to check them out next time I'm out there...

So the Sega classics thing is just an emulator?

Yeah, at one point I think someone discovered it was a branded version of the old kgen emulator (which was awesome), but maybe I'm thinking of another one...

though that last link seems broken

You claim it, but the roms packs cost money. They tend to go on sale on amazon from time to time...

You guys are way out of touch, the community that plays these games is pretty excited for a big update.

There have been two content packs but SF4 was released in 2008.

2008? Really? I only recently saw SF4 on Steam like maybe 2 years ago (or maybe it was twitch). So, I think their marketing team failed.

But are people really asking for an update? And even so, asking for an update big enough to warrant a new game? I doubt it.

Typically, you become familiar with a game and get skilled at it, have tournaments, etc.

All of that is thrown out the window when a new game is released, with mechanics changes, and such. Who would want to start all over again like that?

I mean, you don't see us asking for a "big update" to real life Football, do you? Or Soccer, or hockey. No, because those sports have been finalized.

How about we finalize a game already, instead of playing their rushed-out betas (called gold releases) and then letting them patch stuff and releasing it as a new game.

Sure, the graphics improved, but we don't need that either. Sprites are just as illustrative as 3d polygons, if not more-so.

Multiplayer? C'mon. You can't play a game like SF seriously with a millisecond delay in your controls/actions.



It's like looking at a really bad ink blot test, and trying to make out the various pieces. You're borderline fredrickson, but lack the cohesiveness.

rose colored glasses man. i promise you if this wasn't labelled star wars and they changed nothing else you'd be as confused and disappointed by it as we are.

Rose colored glasses made the movie less confusing? Wow! I guess that would mean that if you're not a fan, you're more confused?

After the lazy cash-in that was TFA, I am pretty much done with these new Star Wars movies.

Yea! We'll still have a blast w/o you!

Again, when 90% of those polled liked it, it sounds a lot more like a "you problem" than a "Star Wars problem".

Still an interesting article to me, I didn't realize this guy went to Beamdog.

I wouldn't have ever guessed that one considering the high profile, AAA titles he's worked on. Talk about having an ace up your sleeve for whatever it is they do make next (BG3, please).

Yeah, I'm looking at the keyboard going "the U isn't even near the N..."

I've done the same thing many times, believe me. The best/worst was an early morning ticket I had from a user named Butch. I forward the ticket to him (to ask about the issue) and another tech (who normally supports the user).

The other tech replies to my email "You realize you just called him a bitch, right?"

Cold sweat. WTF? Hop into sent items: "Bitch, what's causing the issue?"

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...how did this happen? HOW DID THIS HAPPEN????? I finally realize the U in "Butch" is right next to the I on they keyboard. And apparently Outlook has no problems with you calling anyone a bitch, when you're half asleep and miss a letter on the keyboard by a fraction of an inch.

I immediately call the user to apologize and explain, but all I get is voicemail. I leave a a groveling, embarrassing explanation. I then craft an email with the same verbiage, explaining my mistake.

Finally the user calls. I cringe and pickup the phone...

He's laughing his ass off. Apparently this isn't the first time it's happened to him.

SO. If you're ever email anyone named Butch, double check before sending!
