    As annoying as Aloy was she wasn't the biggest Mary Sue in the game, her "mother" is, by far. I'd say Dr. Sobeck is more obnoxious than any single female character in TOW, but the good thing is she's dead and only appear in the occasional holograms. And there are several male characters in leadership positions that are portrayed as smart and competent. In fact I recall I was discontent with the king being too reasonable and ruins any kind of dramatic tension.

    Some folks, no doubt... Personally I don't have any experience with Horizon Zero Dawn so I can't comment on it's wokeness/crypto-misandry. The sales of HZD, were they in line with other open world/sand box games? All I recall was the stink a lot of Sony fanboys made when the game went from Sony exclusive to PC port.

    They outsourced even more quest designs to them for the second DLC: https://rdbwork.wixsite.com/portfolio

    Is there a DLC where I can investigate the murders of the people that made this game?

    I wonder if they're responsible for the new loading screen art made from the 3D models instead of traditional 2d drawings.
    I did about 4 of them and they were 5 minute fetchquests with very inconsequential characters. They really weren't engaging at all.
    One of them had me loot 4 corpses over an entire area and they were surrounded by enemies, I assume they wanted me to fight them but I was able to just sprint past the 4 of them without getting hit at all.
    Other just had me search for a farm robot. Would've been a bit fun if the game didn't inmediatedly tell me where it was with a marker. Once I told it to go back to the "town" it started very slowly walking towards it, I just sprinted back to it and the quirky female engineer that gives names to robots (totally not parvati) talked to me as if the robot was right beside her except that it was still waddling his way half way through.
    They really, really shouldn't outsource any type of quest anymore.

    Black Shamrock on Glassdoor with an impressive 2.9 rating:

    https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Black-Shamrock-Reviews-E2392372.htm

    Aren't they the same company that dropped Paranoia on the digital stores without warning, let alone any marketing? That was... weird.

    Kinda weird to outsource side quest design, but okay. I think KVVRR summed up the review of the actual quests, it seems.

    Maybe they can hire the Hardsuit quest designers if any were laid off, or if Hardsuit had any.

    A dlc where you can murder them is better.

    They want to turn it into a franchise?

    Poor sods, they don't realize the actual reason Outer Worlds sold well do they?

    I guess Obsidian once thought Pillars of Eternity could be a franchise too.

    Game has now sold 3 million units. This is from the latest Take Two financial report.

    Honest Hearts was garbage, what are you on about?
    15 minutes of Joshua Graham in the entire DLC don't elevate it to goodness.

    The location was interesting, the contents and premise the least retarded and most Fallout-like and most connected to the rest of the game, unlike other DLC (lobotomites? some asshole who stole the weapon from Freedom Force's Minuteman? Fucking ghostmen and fog?), and 15 minutes of Graham was enough.

    Eh, I suppose if you dislike the others so much then I suppose it makes sense.
    But still, I found the location so boring after 5 minutes, the quests being nearly all about fetching something, and the setting not particularly interesting as it was mostly tribals killing each other.

    Dead Money, on the other hand... that was fun.

    3 million sales good or shit? Mostly giveaways?

    Goose game, it needs a sequel or more DLC.
    Show Spoiler
    The duck game is boring (collect ducklings and make your nest bigger avoiding speed boats and stealing duckies from other ducks).

    Isn't Biomutant the next new Fallout/Outer Worlds game?

    It's perfect... making a franchise out of a game that mocks corporate culture while also being made with money from one of the biggest corps in the world.
