#488682 E3 2019: Whoever wins, we lose

Posted by God-Emperor Thrawnie on 10 June 2019 - 02:48 PM

Somewhere, Mr. Caffeine chuckles quietly. "You could have had me" he murmurs, hawking the latest As Seen On TV trash to a gaggle of mall-goers. "I could have saved you".

Well they certainly didn't waste any time working on that box art.

The fact that he suddenly went from "done when it's done" to "it'll be done by [SPECIFIC DATE]" the second the show ended kinda lends some credence to the rumor that part of his contract with HBO prevented him from releasing any more books until the series ended.

Isn't them not nailing those things a good thing now tho? Like I thought it was 2019 and all fictional media has to just be postmodernist expectation subversion from wall to wall.

Ah, another minifig that would make 19-year-old Scorp recoil in horror. :P

#488321 What Are You Currently Playing? Bloodborne Edition

Posted by God-Emperor Thrawnie on 25 February 2019 - 07:26 PM


 

Uuuugh, just... why did they do this? Why does a studio synonymous with great singleplayer RPGs bet the farm on a loot shooter instead?

 

Same reason they made SWTOR. EA thinks they can shoehorn elements of the BioWare* Experience™ into online Live Service games and have the best of both worlds. They don't understand why singleplayer RPGs work.

 

 

Anyway, if I'm gonna be honest, I've been hoping Anthem was gonna flop ever since it was revealed. The sooner EA puts BioWare*'s corpse to rest the better, it's been dead since 2012. Let it rest, and we can go back to pretending ME2 was the last game they ever made.

PoE2 needs a lot more than a turn-based mode to save it, honestly.

 

My opinion of PoE1 has actually dramatically improved now that I actually finished it (the music is still bland and Avellone's characters are still obnoxious though) and the expansion, which was far better story-wise than the main game, but PoE2...oof. The loss of the NV writers in 2016 really shows. As critical as I am of Chris Avellone, I'd take him over...whatever the hell PoE2's writing is.

 

 

EDIT: I had a long rant about the game typed up here but I changed my mind about posting it. The tl;dr: The main story is pointless, the game feels tiny, the writing is peppered with...certain contemporary socio-political undertones, and the companions are annoying.

So it's Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, and it seems like they've basically made Fallout New Vegas 2 in all but name,

 

All of the major F:NV devs (except one) are no longer at Obsidian.

 

 

So don't get too excited. Especially if PoE2's lead writer has a major role.
