  1. Oh, I'm sure he did it all on his own. It's not like Obsidian would've kept the text in the game if he said no. They would've just deleted it altogether without having him rewrite it. Thought youd come out with that one. But the fact is we dont know what Obsidian would have done had he said no, which he didnt. So that point is moot. Have you actually asked Obsidian to give you your money back by the way? You never know. I did make a request for a refund or credit. Obsidian naturally, completely ignored my email. Big surprise...
  2. Honestly, I just want my money back. The product I received is different from what I purchased, and I don't want my money going to support a studio with such immoral values. "If we caught it originally, we would've removed it" is speculation too, of course, Obsidian would backtrack and make excuses to please their masters. For all we know, they saw, and liked it, but once they saw that it could cut into their profits, they pulled the plug.

  4. It's autopatched, not optional. How many times do I need to say this? It's Steam that does the autopatching, not Obsidian. Use GOG and you can choose yourself whether you install a patch. Steam cant be responsible for what a developer includes in a patch. I'm not going to be buying this game again on GOG just to get an uncensored copy, which if what I think you're implying...that anyone who doesn't like censorship should just buy a second copy off GOG? I never had this issue with another game, never seen another developer engage in this sort of blatant censorship. With regar

  6. Why aren't you complaining about Steam then? In fact, how can a man with your sense of ethics buy anything from a company that patches stuff without you explicitly opting in? Smells like double standards... I got my copy from GOG and neither it or Obsidian have forced me to patch anything, I did that voluntarily. I use Steam because I can buy their prepaid cards with cash and don't have to give my credit card number or info to buy games. GOG needs a credit card. In other words: you're ignoring your ethics for the sake of convenience. Buy stuff from stores where you can pay wit
  7. Obsidian is waiting for the SJW and other loud mouths to tell them what to say/do.

  9. If it was worked into the game setting, I would see nothing wrong with it. The tombstone didn't say "KILL ALL TRANNIES", it was worked, cleverly, into the game world. If "Neo Nazi" was worked into the game as let's say, a racist faction, that had their own writings, I'd think that would make for a more interesting gameworld, even if I don't agree with content. To point that out in another game, notice how the original "The Witcher" had a lot of racism and bigotry in the game, but it was well integrated into the game world and made it a lot more interesting and creative. That doesn't mean CD P
  10. Oh, come on.. "Drastically changed"?? It was a few lines on a memorial stone that has absolutely zero effect on gameplay. This is obsidians game and it is, ultimately, up to them what gets put in it. How is approaching the backer and saying "do you want to change what you put on on your memorial stone in light of whats happened?" How is that unethical at all? The backer then decided to change the tomb stone to something else of his choosing, without making a fuss at all, and in fact has defended obsidian about the choice, when it is he who has the most reason to be angry! Youre also i
  11. I don't have butthurt, I just don't see why Obsidian couldn't have made their position on speech and censorship clear before I wasted my $50 on their game. Now I have it sitting in my library and I can't play it because they forced an unethical game patch on me. If someone was offended, they could've created an optional patch for those people, not screw with my game. This is why I dislike digital distribution. Had it been a physical copy, I could've returned it or sold it, but on Steam I'm out of $50 and don't have a game I can play. First of all, you have an extremely incorrect view abou
