Everyone who keeps buying loot boxes is contributing to this BS. And there's a ton of these mouthbreathers, so it's not going to go away.

Do adults actually buy this crap, or is it kids who are far more concerned by what a non-gameplay-affecting avatar looks like?

Kids buy this crap by begging their disconnected parents for $$$.

Edit: Ninja'd by MajorD
That being said, I am sure there are some adults, especially those with more money and less time that do buy these.

Sorry jdreyer.

I would 'hope' it is kids buying them via mommy's and daddy's wallet.

4. Re: Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition Sep 27, 2017, 17:43 MajorD
 

They did a lot of things right with FO4, but keeping it true as a "Fallout" game they did not.

It is interesting seeing a lot of the popular mods from FO3 carried over/implemented into FO4 vanilla game, so at least we know Bethesda was paying attention.

FO4 heavily modded is a fantastic game. I'm on my second play through, this time with the Horizon mod and Sim Settlements, among numerous others. I'll probably play it through another two more times so I can experience all the different endings.

I kind of deplore our throwaway society. Nothing is built to be fixed easily. Things are intentionally designed to be hard as to encourage you to buy a new one. And due to said design fixing becomes more expensive, often approaching or even exceeding the cost of getting a new one. Sad and wasteful.

X2^^^^^ This has always bothered me about our society. Sad....

Pete Hines continuously looks like an ass trying to spin the whole Creation Club as 'not' being paid mods. I don't know if he is trying to convince himself, or everyone else; however, there are a lot of people out there that will lap up anything.

Bottom line, it is greedy move to make more money, and they look like complete DICKS in the process.

"Facebook hands Russia-backed ads to election investigators."

Really? ... Are we really pursuing this? My god, Hillary... just drop it. You lost; fair and square.

1. Our election may have been tilted toward one candidate by our arch enemy, and we should just drop it? Normally, this is where I ask my famous question "Are you a commie?" but I don't have to: You're obviously a fucking commie pinko. I can see the picture of Lenin on your wall from here.

2. Why do you love Putin? Have you sworn an oath to him? Is your actual name deqerski? Do you like it when he rides around on horses shirtless?

3. It's illegal for any foreign government to take out campaign ads in favor of any candidate.

I'm surprised you didn't conveniently throw out a Hitler slam too while you were at it. Rolleyes

I know our choices weren't much to pick from, but do you really think Hilary Rotten-Liar Clinton would have been any better?

just to basic / plain / boring/ uninspired

Yeah, I've noticed a lot of other people verbalizing the same thing, which caused the game's buzz and sales to faded away, and brings us to why they're loudly advertising "FREE SEASON PASS". \o/ over here \o/ over here!!

ALLLLLL ABOARD, the trendy MS Bash Wagon is ready to depart!

I've used Windows 10 game recorder for various LPs, and it works very well, and I can't even notice it running in the background. Works way better than other recording software I've used.

Unfortunately, the game will be hard pressed to live up to the hype after the long development cycle and all that has gone along with it; good or not, it's just not going to happen.......

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is on a Steam sale again for $15.00USD.

I loved HR, but I haven't pulled the trigger on MD yet. Is it worth $15.00?


Yeah, I think so. I paid full price for it and don't feel cheated at all. I wouldn't rank it as high as HR but it was a solid entry in the series.

It's only an opinion of course but I would say that for most people that aren't hardcore fans of the series that if you can get it for $20 or less you can't really go wrong.

Cool, thanks much for the feedback.

This post makes me wonder if you were gaming in the 90's. Doom and Quake's graphics were leaps forward.

They were but art direction mattered, doom's single player is still better than quakes. This is why doom has a bigger modding community, it's overall the better single player game. Quake's multiplayer is really only remembered because it was largely the only game in town that could to IP networking and was many gamers first multiplayer internet game.

Quake 1 + 2 had shitty SP campaigns, they were never good. Doom was overall the better single player experience, everyone knew quake 4 single player was a fucking disaster.

iD software always sucked at doing SP campaigns largely, they were hit and miss, guys like romero really saved doom 2, without the original team single player suffered in quake 1 and 2. Doom was the more fun game which is why it has such a huge modding community.

Quake 3 and unreal were mostly arbitarily different, and Quake 3 was finally surpassed in terms of fun by UT2004.

So UT2004 remains the high watermark of 90's fps design.

Single player first person shooter campaign design was finding its legs with FEAR and other games until the guys at infinity nailed it with Call of duty 4 and the set piece cinematic game formula was nailed down.

....and it was Half-Life that set the bar high in terms of a story driven SP campaign.
