Re: General Gaming Discussion

Obsidian is well known for being those guys that take the already completed LEGO castle set that your best friend was working on and added some turrets on the towers to make it look cooler. Nobody notices its still the same castle, just with the bare minimum of additions. For some reason though there are more technical flaws in how the castle was built.

Then when they decide to make their own LEGO castle from scratch, it looks more like a whorehouse than a castle...a terrible, diseased, hellhole of a whorehouse.

Long story short, Obsidian are whores. They rely on taking money from desperate men for quick and cheap sex (I like to call them "shitquels").

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Your hatred of Obsidian is pretty intense

I find that they have some of the strongest writing in games and take far more risks than other developers and really try to add new depth to RPG storytelling (actually locking you out of content if you take a different story path) and game play and run circles around bioware

did they ruin a series you like or something

Half of them are ex Black isle which is one of the most important WRPG developers of all time

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Look at their track record, all shit. Don't need any other evidence than that.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Non-Fallout related question, but does anyone here play MarioKart 7? Has anyone here played any MarioKart game online? I'm constantly in last or second to last place online. Do I need to unlock everything from the single player races to stand a chance?

Re: General Gaming Discussion

It helps. But trust me, those Nintendo fans are aggressive. They take no prisoners.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Plus, (at least Pokemon) Nintendo people who play online are little kids or Japanese Hard-core gamers. You're either getting owned by a kid who plays 24/7 or a Japanese kid who plays 24/7 + is genetically better than you.

I purposely chose japanese servers whenever I Pokemon battle for the challenge; I don't mind never having won once.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Obsidian have their problems, but i enjoy their ambitious underdog schtick. Also, Alpha Protocol is the dog's bollocks, and fie on anyone who says otherwise.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Fallout 3 is one of the biggest disgraces to a gaming franchise I've ever had the displeasure to experience. Just when you think how low they've stooped since F2, it's inconcievable. Regarding New Vegas, although not nearly on the level of the original games, it was a major improvement do to Beth hiring a company that still knows that RPG stands for "Role-Playing-Game".

There's pretty much no shittier RPG writer then Bethesda compared to how much money they're sitting on. They're like the McDonalds of RPGs. Shallow colorful mindless experience that in the end leaves you feeling empty and in regret.

When it comes to world building and atmosphere they're not that bad due to the endless amount of cash they can rely on. But when it comes to creating actual art of a quality role-playing experience, I swear I could write better characters and deeper story if i stuck a pen up my ass and crouched over a sheet of paper.

Fuck Fallout 3 and fuck Bethesda.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

I really don't see a problem with how Bethesda handles their games, they just decide to focus on creating a unique and immersive world for you to play around in rather than focus on storytelling, it's just appealing to a different sort of gamer I suppose, no reason to be mad about it.

Re: General Gaming Discussion

Well, it appears that Fallout 3 & New Vegas is quite the polarizing subject.
