Maybe I am overestimating your ability to control an FPS with a gamepad. I wouldn't consider my gamepad "skills" to be terribly practiced, I almost always use a KB/M... but I suppose the accuracy does help more-so than I am considering. FO3/NV are not really balanced for allowing people to shoot via mouse and it shows. It does eliminate rather large chunks of the difficulty when you can just headshot/headshot/headshot something while it takes 30+ seconds to find a path to you. I was considerably more afraid of cazadors than deathclaws during my hardcore playthrough because of the pathing issues.

My original point was that it is not a game-breaking level of control difference (like say playing Q3 with a gamepad... lol) to blindly label FO4 as a "bad port" just because ABXY buttons show up in a screenshot.

Well, I refuse to play shooters with a gamepad, so I guess it's game breaking for me, but I realize I'm a minority :p. I can't understand why people accept aiming with a gamepad. It's painful, the mouse is so much better. For the record, I don't think adding gamepad support is indication of a bad port, but a bad port it will be anyway, because of the interface. Bethesda makes the WORST PC interfaces. Absolutely horrible, and from what I've seen of FO4, things didn't improve.

I have nightmares about more and more PC gamers using the gamepad, to a point where developers of FPS games stop supporting the mouse... It's already somewhat happening in some games...

Thanks for explaining to me why a mouse is more accurate than a gamepad... Sigh. Now go back and try to actually understand the point I was making.

The gameplay in FO3/NV is far too slow for it to matter, even if you don't use VATS. The accuracy and speed advantage of a mouse is completely wasted on this type of game. So, no... there is not a "major advantage" to using a mouse at all. Especially if you don't just charge into every combat situation with blinders on.

Can you aim a little bit faster? Sure...
Does it matter? Not unless you control your gamepad with your toes.

Maybe you're a god at aiming with a gamepad, but for me using a mouse is a major advantage. Does it matter? Absolutely. Makes the game so much more pleasant.

I love how thrown off people are by the A B X Y buttons on the screen, as if there was any advantage to playing FO3/NV with a mouse+KB over a gamepad. It's not a twitch shooter, who gives a shit? You all really have to start getting over this one, just because a mouse works better for competitive FPS doesn't make gamepad support indicative of a "bad port" problem.

You're wrong. There's a major advantage using a mouse. There was one also in FO3 and NV. Precise aiming for quick shots and headshots helped a lot. You could use VATS, but it's limited. I personally never used VATS and had a great experience. I always felt that VATS was training wheels for gamepad users.

To the people complaining about max 4 dialogue choices, have you played a RPG in the last 10 years? I know it's hard to understand, but one of the options may lead to further options, usually noted by the addition of "...".

Add me to the legions hoping for a new V:tM game!

This. I don't think Paradox has the money to make a full 3D RPG but I'd be perfectly okay with an old-school, isometric CRPG.

Not me. What made Bloodlines great was the game itself, not necessarily the setting. It did help to have a dark setting for me because I love horror. But what I want is another great first person rpg. I know that the first V:tM game wasn't first person, but I think most people didn't like it all that much either.

I'm surprised they didn't just create an entirely new store page and give it a new name, like Arkham Knight: Ultimate Edition.

Personally I don't think the criticism here is fair. The game was released a mess but it was pulled and they spent months improving it. Including reviews for the old version is confusing and doesn't paint an accurate picture. However, rather than removing them altogether they simply called them 'Pre-Release', which is accurate given the game was pulled and worked on considerably before re-release - they are still included in the aggregate score, which results in a poor score.

The game was originally released in a bad state. We know the publisher screwed up. However, they took action to address it and it's more than many other publishers would have done. Shouldn't we support that? I don't understand what people think they should have done once it had been released.

Some people, me included, think that we shouldn't support them. They knew damn well the game was unplayable on initial release and they released it anyway. If no one had complained, they would have left it available. The only thing they're trying to do now is save their reputation. If they really cared about PC gaming, they'd have put the effort initially. Support devs who really care about the PC, without the need for our complaining. Also, I'm not blaming the employees themselves, just management and the people taking the decisions.

I can't stand horror games where your only option is run and hide. Which really amounts to learn the monster's patterns and respond to them. Games like SOMA and Alien would be way better if you could interact with the environment and craft items to fight back with. Trying to avoid the monsters is intense enough but just being a victim the entire time is frustrating and monotonous. It's a shame because the environments in those games are otherwise fantastic.

Have you ever played Clive barker's Undying? This is a game that shows that being able to defend yourself doesn't have to make it less scary. Not sure it holds up so well nowadays.

Anyone EVER had SOMA on their radar? It should get the Worst Motherfucking Title of the Year award... Because I ignored it in every single news article or link, thinking it was another DOTA rip-off.

I nearly missed out on Amnesia in Rapture xD

Finished SOMA in two sittings. It's my game of the year so far... Story of the year. Horror game of the year. To me, its story was delivered in a way that I've never experienced before in games. But a lot of people think that the game is "meh" because they were expecting Amnesia 2. I'm glad it wasn't that because I'm tired of these types of games.

Im all for sex equality and all that, but not every game needs to be about equality of sex and race. Sometimes you just want to go on a power trip and save a helpless princess. It sickens me nowadays when they need to put one person of each race in a movie. There's no creativity, you must follow this politically correct mold...

Yeah, I played Skryim. Was Hyped, then the realization hit me how disappointed I became the more I playe dit. To me it was utter garbage as an RPG and signified the downward spiral of Elder Scrolls into casual, but to each their own. Hated the questing, easy puzzles, "join all the guilds, becuz you can without consequence!" and total lack of information on how to get to a place via the quest log, "Just follow your quest marker for an easy time!"

While your complaints are absolutely valid, I still had a stupid amount of fun with Skyrim.

Bethesda no longer makes my ideal RPGs, but they do make great games. It's definitely sad though.

I'd rather see some gameplay footage first. I'm not impressed with what little they've shown so far.

They're purposely not showing much to avoid spoilage, which I like. However, they've showed and told PLENTY about the game in terms of changes and additions since E3, not the least of which being the overhauled leveling system detailed in these videos and the one demonstrating the in-game perk tree. You've got the greatly expanded crafting system, the custom-built settlements, improved gunplay... What more do you need to know? If you didn't like FO3 or New Vegas, then you're not suddenly going to like FO4, regardless. The core game is the same.

If you've played their last games, with the information they already gave, you should know exactly what the game is. Bethesda is expertly managing the spoiling in order for people to enjoy the game fully. Hats off to them.

That's messed up. While I don't always agree with him, he's one of the few voices of reason in this industry. But he's right, medical technology is advancing pretty fast these days.

Not for Cancer it's not. Harvard Medical categorically declared it to be incurable a few years ago - likely for at least another century. We can catch and beat it if it's small enough and you find it early enough, otherwise the Magic 8 Ball says the prognosis is not good.

Skeptic magazine did an entire magazine dedicated to this a year or so back as well and the results were not good. Some milder forms of cancer - skin cancer - are obviously much easier to beat than others, but overall we've only seen about a 15% increase in sucess against it since the 1950s. That's not very good for an industry that's had 100s of billions of dollars poured into and tens of billions more every year. We'd be far better off putting that money into prevention by subsidizing fresh food and excercise and banning - or at least taxing the shit out of - junk food. They estimate almost 80%-90% of all diseases could be pre-empted like that.

I wasn't talking about any ailment in particular. I just find that these days, medicine is accelerating progress. Lots of crazy things in papers and the news.

BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Explosins don't need to be final to release SQ42. I don't think it was ever announced this year though. This game is going to be iterative.

Oh no, I replied in a CS thread. I gotta stop this.
