    This is all I got googling "clowns juxtapositions".


    This game already broke me and I see clowns everywhere. Fuck. I need to get off the internet.

    Are there any games which have gotten the cold freezing climates/weather right? Only one I can think off top of my head is Cryostasis which was made by Ukrainians.

    I wonder if the weather and temperature will have some kind of gameplay role there.

    If what Fargo says is true, it'll be better in context but this wasn't in context and this was likely most people's first exposure to the series. Neither of the other games have been advertised like they're spiritual successors to Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. They misrepresented the game plain and simple.

    The trailer reminds me of Far Cry New Dawn and Rage 2. Games with very low user scores. D:OS 2 and Fallout 1/2 were more serious than that. To me, the overall feeling of this trailer was just... stupid. I was looking forward to this game but now I'm somewhat concerned about it.

    ...Well, at least this means that the actual systems driving the characters and the game outright will finally get revealed come Fall with Alpha/Beta access---after all these years of purposefully avoiding the entire lot of it.

    They're trying to market the game to the Xbox audience but don't know how to.
    Most people are familiar enough with the original Fallouts to get what type of game this is, they can be more up front about it.

    It also happened to The Outer Worlds. Sadly everything is shit. Can't have proper, dark post-apocalypse anymore. The best thing about Fallout, the true Fallout (1997), was that it showed a world that was shit, a world you didn't want to live in. Post-apocalyptic games of today show an idealized world that looks "fun" to inhabit.

    Wasteland would be a bit unremarkable without locations like the network part with Night Terror (although to be fair it would still be a fun game with all these skill uses and well crafted dungeons). I thought a crazy world is something Wasteland 2 lacked, I don't think each dialog line should be a punchline Hollywood style, but a crazy world, weird locations, weird enemies, weird situations (even the gameplay is weird in the network part) is something I expect to see in a Wasteland game.

    I have not played it myself yet but from what I've read people unanimally criticized Fountain of Dreams for dumbed-down mechanisms and a lack of content, I don't remember its crazy world getting much hate. I think the game looks very good by the way.

    I would play Wasteland 3 if I could create my party from the start, but unfortunately they have all their big BT4/TTON fanbase to buy their game and don't want my money :) (I may eventually play it anyway).

    If Fargo wants more love from the Codex, he should change his name to “Fargovich”.

    Then he can make action games and get praised for it rather than being accused of trying to appeal to the masses with turn based RPGs.

    LoL just watched that E3 trailer and just lost all interest in the game. It looked like some fucking clown world garbage with everyone being freaks and degenerates.

    I guess Brian used all of his master salesman magic to make the MS deal happen in a first place.

    I really hope the game sells a lot if it ends up being good, since I think I read Ziets is leading WL3 game and would like him to do more games hopefully.

    It is interesting how all those old star devs that were going to bring the magic back and were constantly spewing shit like "The publishers are the reason x game was not as good as we wanted!" or "Now,with kickstarter you the gamers are our publishers.",ended up delivering shit games and selling their ass to the publishers after nobody was ready to believe them again. I do hope both shit companies go down and under. Wasteland 3 will be just another garbage game.

    Clearly we were naive enough in the early 2010s to believe a single developer's name alone was all it would take to make video games good again. I know I was. Even Shenmue III, a game I'd been anticipating for literally over half my life, is starting to sour on me. The "magic" was dead all along and never planned to come back. Crowdfunding was nothing more than a scam to reap our sweet nostalgia dollars.

    It was not the scam. It just happen that when people get older, they lost their touch. Which I think is even worse than scam.
