    I'm someone who isn't that bothered by Epic exclusivity, especially when the game is DRM free as Outer Worlds is, but for fucks sake at least let people buy the fucking thing.

    Perhaps they needed to run over it with a fine tooth comb to avoid accidentally having anything particularly novel or interesting squeeze through.

    Played a couple hours and fought nothing. Like Old World Blues it starts with a ton of exposition and dialog. New area looks nice enough, has a little salvager bar so it's not all wilderness. There are BioShock style audio logs now. Setup works well for an in-it-for-the-money scoundrel. Writing seems like more Outer Worlds, nothing special to report there yet. Yes the two biggest characters I've met so far were women. Oh and a lot of the women have long hair now (pinned up mostly), it would be amusing if that was a criticism they actually cared about.

    For some reason the patch/DLC breaks the .ini file edits, so I've got companion HUD shit and chromatic aberration back and editing them again doesn't seem to work.

    Probably had a skeleton crew working on it since it's likely a contractual obligation they're fulfilling for Private Division and a low priority compared to future Microsoft stuff.

    Time will tell if that was the case or if Microsoft actually think its worth investing in and doing more Outer Worlds in the future.

    Outer Worlds wasn't a 100+ hour Bethesda game. I am pretty slow at these games and do everything and I think my final time first run was like 30-something. So a 6 hour DLC... which will likely take me twice that... isn't some shocking thing.

    Played a couple more hours. If you were hoping it was a Fallout 4 situation where Far Harbor was better than the main game in a lot of ways then no, it's not that. It's more Outer Worlds in every way. The Joss Whedon writing, the women all being geniuses and the men all being idiots, the supplies being fucking everywhere so they don't matter at all, shooting marauders with your weapon of choice with zero difficulty involved, etc. They said it was basically another Monarch and that seems to be roughly the case, though without the towns. Also they upped the max skill points to 150 for each skill, but if you're starting the DLC at level 30 like me then the new level cap of 33 doesn't give you enough points to max any of them. There's 150 level locks everywhere, too.

    I have the XGP and tried to bought expansion pass from windows store. And for some reason it didn't charge me anything, despite ask me for a payment method. I tried it and were being able to start the DLC with no problem.

    So is the expansion pass part of the XGP?

    DLC typically has nothing but skeleton crew working on them. It shouldn't take 10 months for six hours though. 10 months is enough for expansion-sized content. Dead Money was released two months after New Vegas, Honest Hearts five months after that, Old World Blues two months after that, Lonesome Road two months after that. It took the Perils of Gorgon team the same amount of time to make one six hour DLC as the time it took the New Vegas team to make four five-to-six-hour DLCs.

    Oh and lest you think this is a "Chris Avellone is a fast writer" thing, Bethesda released five 3-5 hour Fallout 3 DLCs and one five-hour, one fifteen-hour, and one seventeen-hour Fallout 4 DLC in the same amount of time.

    So this isn't really a Tim-Leon production at all as much as it is a know-nothing team under their loose guidance.

    Disappointing.

    I'm a leftist but extreme SJW writing has been ruining quite a few games because the writers think everyone cares about the same issues they do.
    Many of us don't need to have ugly women shoved in our faces to understand that videogame women tend to be very attractive.

    I heard one of the writers said that in this #MeToo world some aspects of a certain quest had to be rewritten altogether.

    Funny thing is there's basically zero commentary on race, sexuality or trans issues to my memory. Also the left/right political divide is pretty jumbled with criticisms of all aspects. It's just VERY focused on feminist ideals. I'd assume a bunch of the writers were Jezebel readers or actual cucks.

    Edit: Infinitron you know I'm not an anti-SJW crusader like some here, but there's just no way not to see a constant message of female superiority in this game. It's everywhere.

    Yeah, this is a big problem for me. I like political commentary but not when the political commentary is not something I'm particularly interested in, and if the female characters in TOW do nothing but reinforce feminist ideals, I can't say I'll find them interesting. Likewise if I have the only faction composed of white guys be a KKK-equilvanet, or the only faction composed of black guys be a commentary against slavery and shit.

    Yeah, bad or simplistic writing is just bad or simplistic writing. Even the "SJW" example everyone loves to use with Beamdog and Siege of Whatever with the tranny witch... a mage using magic to change gender is actually a decent concept, the problem is they wrote it poorly, like a Huffington Post advert. Outer Worlds feels like all those "dumb husband" commercials where the wife has to teach him a lesson by the end of it. It's like a "future is female" shirt wrote a game.
