  1. I think I found the problem: https://www.polygon.com/2018/11/10/17959500/obsidian-xbox-acquired-x018-new-vegas-pillars-eternity Obsidian will add PS4 support as soon as M$ stops trying to be a monopoly...i.e., never.
  2. Oh, I know what Modern Racism Scale is. But I have no idea what "ambivalence concept was used to demonstrate the construct validity of a relatively nonreactive scale of racial prejudice-the Modern Racism Scale" means. How exactly did they "demonstrate construct validity"? By showing that there is prejudice in 81 white student from their university without proper control groups to account for other contributing factors? Are you having a laugh? Trying to obscure that your conclusions are meaningless behind obscure terms doesn't work with me or with any other person who studied natural or formal
  3. Depends. Does Draining Whip give you +2 for every enemy hit or just the first one? In other words, can you focus on AOE for faster, larger focus gains once you have it? If you can double or triple up, I can see how an AOE focused cipher could benefit from higher max focus, especially if sporting fast weapons. If not ,i.e., if you only get the +2 per attack with no multiplier for how many enemies hit, even if it's AOE, then yeah, not optimal. Anyone know which one it is?
  4. You've got it so backwards it's not even funny. The very best way to paint the target is to engage in childish one-uppery. Obsidian and Firedom responded rather perfectly. The showed responsiveness to the issue but Firedom also got to express his feeling that this was an overreaction to what was intended as a harmless jest, but which unintentionally offended people. The overall effect is an honest effort to keep the peace and nobody can fault Obsidian or Firedom for that. Had they done what you suggest, it would only be throwing gas on the fire. Firedorn knew it was offensive. He exp

  6. Of course, you miss the part that by in any way caving to a "pathetic intimidation attempt," they validate it and succumb to it. You only bring down and insult everyone involved by trying to characterize it that way. Face it: they considered the complaint and simply decided it needed to be changed to keep the peace. That's not censorship, intimidation, caving, cowardice or whatever. These are smart people who, as today's patch showed, listen to the community and want what's best for their game and it's fans, both in a business sense but also in the sense of having created something co
  7. Actually, the other thread was linked to by a mod as the place to continue the discussion. Like, mod A closes a thread and links to that one, mod B closes that one and says "how did you start this?" TRICKSY HOBBITSES!!!!!!!

  9. "Whoa, okay. When did you guys start another thread on this? And how did it get to 20 pages while I was out having dinner? Look, we're fine with you guys talking about this, or whatever you want to talk about (as long as it's not, I don't know, endorsing piracy). But like with everything else, you don't need to start a new thread every time you think you have something so important to say that you need a new thread, instead of posting like everybody else. Continue here: http://forums.obsidi...cussion/page-26" ======== ZOMG CENSORSHIP NAZI!!!!!!
  10. That's what I've been saying from the start. Obsidian did not "cave under the pressure", they gave Firedorn all the freedom he wanted to handle that so called crisis. Meh. he first line is implicitly an acknowledgement that he recognizes people took offense. That act of changing it is implicitly a recognition that it was better for everyone to do so. The second line is barbed, to be sure, but overall it's a polite way of saying "fine, let's move on."
  11. If it loses you as a fan, then I'd have to say this: responding to an overreaction by trying to top how much of an overreaction it was with an even bigger overreaction on your part is, by definition, pure and unadulterated derp.
  12. I don't see it that way. That barbed comment applies to both "sides" of this nonsense at different times.
  13. Why aren't you happy? The backer didn't get screwed. Isn't that what you wanted? Frankly, I thought he was pretty brilliant about it. His changes were mature in that he made sure to tell everyone that he was only joking and meant no harm, thereby acknowledging that he understood people took offense, but he also lightly chastised everyone folks for overreacting a bit, cuz hey, there's a right way and a wrong way to provide criticism...and overall the act of changing it at all was a nice gesture to try to keep the peace. Win win for him. People should move on.
  14. Agreed. People made their case on both sides of the issue. Obsidian listened and made up its own mind about how best to respond. Respect their decision and move on. The prolonged and irrational anti-"SJW" tantrum is effing infantile. No it is just freedom of speech. And a reaction to their behavior since its getting more and more stupid every day. And now the line is almost completely crossed for many people. Whose behavior? From where I'm sitting, it seems both "sides" get way out of control and lose all sense of objectivity and rational thought almost every single time.
