I enjoyed 1&2 and never got 3. Didn’t miss anything from what others have said. Downloading now.

I wouldn't recommend it, for free. But it is free, so there's that.

They must be in a really sad state for them to be delayed since Bethesda has no problem launching half finished broken games in the past. It must even fall below their already low release standards.

I assume final approval is going to Microsoft who just "Oh no girlfriend, you're not going out like that." on the Zenimax gameplan.

I enjoyed this game, they deserve the success. A lot of stuff has been added since I played it, may be worth revisiting.

Not even a "they" it was just one person who put the whole game together. Remarkable, must be daunting to attempt work on the new project - that's enough cash to retire quietly and want for nothing.

Interference in a class-action sexual assault case. Including but not limited to the governor's office asking about strategy and direction of the investigation: smarmy.

Not exactly sure how Mr. Garriott expects his product(s) to have any chance of success with Valve banning...

Oh, yes, there is absolutely no way anyone could ever release a successful video game without Valve. We can see this every day by the huge failures called Nintendo, ArenaNet, Activision Blizzard, UbiSoft, Epic, Riot Games, Mojang et al. It is a biblical miracle how those walking corpses even manage to survive without the almighty life-giving Steam empire. Absolutely unfathomable.

I like how all your examples are mostly publishers too, and each worth many millions of dollars.

Obsidian sure, but somewhere else. I don't see a point in returning to New Vegas when it could be so much more interesting in other cities around the world. Fallout Hong Kong. Now that would interesting. Imagine integrating all that vertical play, and early HK when it was the neon capital of the world.

I agree. While I enjoyed some of the side quests, overall to myself NV overstayed it's welcome, and I would hope they go someplace new. China wouldn't really work Cutter due to the huge anti-Russian/China due to the war.

California is where Fallout started and Obsidian possesses the remainder of the original team that worked on the first two Fallouts and NV. I would rather see the original team have their swan song with their original material and finish whatever vision they had for their post-apocalyptic world. These original team members are already in their 50s - and this title isn't like to be in any serious development (if at all) for years and likely not released within 5 to 7. Assuming anyone gets to retire in their 60s anymore.

Especially for people holding shares of those monopolies. But not so much for the usual customers.

If only Steam wasn`t privately owned has no shares and does answer to shareholders.

Gotta ask, what is then? As Tom said, it ain't perfect but it is still the best option.


You're not suppose to ask that question, you're supposed to nod your head in agreement to their sage statement lacking either evidence or alternative.

Yes, you are a delivery boy, but it's very thoughtful.

Or in other words, it's about as fun as watching paint dry.

I said it was a gameplay experience and some points of interest. Thank you for your very hot, hot take on the topic: the very fact that you spent all that energy to post that comment speaks more than enough.

I bought a copy of this game on sale and as far as I can tell it's an Amazon delivery boy simulator. Am I missing something?

It's a gameplay experience, specifically your ability the carry more, vs the challenge of the terrain, hazards, and unknown hazards, and carrying gear to overcome obstacles at the expense of carrying more.

Yes, you are a delivery boy, but it's very thoughtful. It's pretty neat when you get into it. Gets pretty stressful when you start negotiating dangerous terrain to avoid something vs the risk of going through it

Getting out of gamedev is usually the best choice if you have any self-interest. Eventually. Definitely a sweetspot between those two points, but leaving is usually for the best.
I got out in the early 2000's and never looked back. I was just a young contractor back then, but getting anyone to pay me was near impossible. Firaxis still owes me a few thousand.

That said, there's no need to get out of the industry, the Indie scene is what's driving things forward these days, not the AAA studios. This bullshit is pretty much non-existent on small indie teams.

I think that's the real distinction, small teams are fine because everyone has game work to do, until eventually someone (likely a senior or a founder) spends more time managing the team and the increasing obligations of keeping everyone employed: eventually they have to manage the company, its employees and their collective future and less about making games. As the team grows, it ages, and their requirements are going to change. I imagine that happened at Kiel: if your game doesn't hit, everyone loses their job, or someone throws you some money and everyone gets to work on one or two more games in relative peace until it dissolves into a corporate game factory. Burn out or fade away? I think the employees and their families would like a predictable fade out.

$100k CDN for a senior dev is a pittance compared to how much the company earns and how much the execs take home. Mid-level devops people are making over $150k usd and senior people can make up to $250k usd. The game industry abuses these developers because they are "living out their dream".

Dream in one hand and shit in the other and see which fills up faster; living your dream always costs the company less.
