    Self explanatory.

    Ill start with my new favorite quote from sawyer.

    Also an image from Stillwater Giant , no clue where he got it from, or if he made it himself, but it made me laugh quite a bit.

    Have they ever made a good game?

    And I mean game, not game.

    NWN2 and KOTOR2 play like shit but that was something you could take for granted given that they were making follow ups to NWN/KOTOR which play even worse. Alpha Protocol should be VN, the gameplay is fucking horrible. New Vegas is just little bit improved FO3. Dungeon Siege 3 is shit. South Park is boring(at least it's short). Pillars is the best game they've actually made and it's mediocre at best.

    BUT MUH STORYFAGGOTRY

    DUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    I don't like how they've turned into literally metacritic where level of polish = this is a good game. Some people don't respond well to criticism I suppose, just like Nic Pizzolatto hahah.

    "(sometimes literally yelling at people)"

    Literally retarded. And to think he threatened to quit during the discussions about the Eternity Kickstarter....who the fuck made him stay?

    Aye. Technically it's a rumour, but despite writing for Kotaku, the guy who wrote this always get these things right (he was that leaked the Fallout 4 stuff way back), and I don't believe Sawyer for a second.

    oh I thought it was over the women in gaming thing, not about doing a KS - TBH his forcefulness there was probably the right thing to do.

    Another quote:

    We know for a fact that MCA was among the skeptical ones. He was partner and Creative Director back then. This is one of the reasons I say they don't seem to get along and rarely ever mention each other at all.
    But yeah, in retrospect he probably did the right thing by pushing for the KS, although we don't exactly what were the points of contention that made him threaten to quit. Could've been something after the decision to make the KS was settled.

    They will never make anything as great as New Vegas or MotB again.

  12. It's from /v/ circa 2012.

    PoE is easily better than MotB; MotB's combat is horrendous.

    Are you retarded? The world building in NV makes much more sense, there's a tremendous amount of CC, Obsidian's formula of openworld works much better than Bethesda's (hilarious if you think about Bethesda's experience with the concept), the reputation mechanic is way more natural and the writing, especially in DLCs, is fucking great.

    I mean how could you say shit like that? Don't you have a taste? A brain? You honestly made me angry. Fucking cunt.

    Your insecurity and boy crush on Sawyer is related to bashing video game company how exactly? Bros, these are exactly the situations where codex gets really pathetic...

    2/3 of your points are pure storyfaggot retardoland shit.

    They've took FO3, tweaked it a little bit(but not too much) with the biggest difference being removal of level scaling(that's very good change) but by itself it's still shit game just like FO3.

    If you look for actually good game, it's not this one.

    Right, because the combat in PoE is so great to the point is a superior game. A lot of characters and quests of FO:NV was stuff taken from Fallout: Van Buren, the original Fallout 3 that was being developed by Black Isle Studios. You fucking mongoloid.

    No.

    PoE at least doesn't look like shit.

    Combat is almost just as bad, only bit better because you can control your party here.

    So what happened to the Fallout retrospective thread? Or was I just pissed again and imagined that, which int unusual on a Friday night?

    Thought Dungeon Siege 3 had pretty good combat, one o best ARPGs i've played, some good C&C and all told was pretty good for what it was. Far too much fucking handholding though, especially when map was so linear and limited, and cities/wilderness were only backdrops not interactable.
