  1. I have no doubt modders will inevitably do things to tweak the system to make as stress free, or as stressful as possible for the individual player. It wasn't much of an issue with me in Hardcore mode in New Vegas vanilla but if you had a mod ( I think it was Sawyer's but I'm forgetting.) you could sometimes need to eat three times a day to not keel over. I'm sure Obsidian will put some effort into not making us suffer too much.
  2. My guy you think impressionistic neon lighting as an art style was pioneered by Fortnite? Have you seen any major Science Fiction film since color movies became a thing? This type of lighting is a ostensibly a cliche at this point.
  3. Bro we barely have footage of the thing and you know what the entire forty hour experience will look like?
  4. Well yeah it's possible to do it lone wolf just like it was in Obsidian's other games. You could certainly do it in New Vegas but it's a bit easier to do with Boone shooting some poor fool downwind with a sniper! It's even possible to beat Pillars that way although that's way, way harder than New Vegas. Also, we're some months away from real, legitimate footage reveal so I wouldn't worry too much!
  5. I imagine it'll be the traditional $49.99 - $59.99 price tag. I don't see why it wouldn't be. I imagine they might charge you more for some digital goodies though like a Soundtrack or Items.
  6. I'm guessing OP is not down for butt stuff? I digress. Obisidian specifically asked for feedback and people are giving it. One does not become an "anal minimaxer" because they do exactly what they're told to do. Also why would you complain about more options? The modes have no bearing on one another. I'm being serious I have no idea why people complain about two separate options that have no effect on one another,.
  7. It's absolutely a minority approach. People replay games all the time. Like all the time.
  8. I'm not saying that's necessarily a good thing and OS has it's grimdark elements. I just mean it's kind of less serious with the way it's written. Kinda like BG2 or Dragon Age. Dark plotlines but the characters and the mood is more upbeat. POE and deadfire has it's jokes and it's lighthearted moments but they are few and far between. I just think that might be a big part of why it's not so popular. I disagree. I know I'm beating a dead horse by bringing this up but Wticher 3 has a dead baby in it that comes back to life after some rather awful circumstances. Sexual violence is also a part of the narrative seeing as Eredin wants Ciri to foster his child due to the Prophecy that it will control everything and I have no doubt she would not consent to having sex with him. Dark settings aren't the problem. I'm more partial to the idea that it just doesn't have the same type of exposure for a variety of reasons.
  9. I hate to be that guy but this is one of those "When they're ready to share" sort of deals.
  10. Yes this is what it sounds like. Different hubs separated by loading screens. I suppose some buildings would have them too upon entering.
  11. Worried? What for? I don't have the slightest problem with Megan. If you're brave enough to tell us you're worried surely you're brave enough to tell us why?
  12. Let's just ban all video games. Then no on can complain about features because there will be none.
  13. Full agreement here. The oddest part of the fanbase usually is the part that somehow gets exposure. Imagine my horror for instance when I mention I like old school Sonic games and people only ever want to talk about the atrocities that have spawned from the fan art community.
  14. I am under the impression that certain languages usually take priority when devs do this. Languages like English, Spanish, French, Brazilian Portuguese are usually a given. But stuff like Polish usually takes a backseat. When taking dubs into account it's best to plan accordingly as a consumer, as awful as that sounds.
  15. It will be, kinda, because Steam is the only announced platform at the time so you're kind of stuck. Your fact may be "correct" but you're SOL on the OS thing unless you plan on playing on PS4 or XB1.
  16. Games by and large are at some level Mary Sue simulators. People fall in love with you because it's a fantasy and isn't at all realistic. This is also why in a game like Obvlion you can somehow be an Archmage, Arena Champion. Guildmaster of the Fighter's Guild, the head of the Thieves Guild, the hero of Kvatch and Cyrodill and lastly Speaker for the Dark Brotherhood. It's completely and utterly preposterous but it's a thing that CAN happen so I tend to just leave my brain at the door. I don't disagree with you actually but games are well, games and have to be at some level, gamey.
  17. Some of the...rat things dismember in the preview vid. at least, their head comes off. I know over the top gore is a thing in Fallout but I'm unsure if that's going to carry over in it's entirety. But yeah there appears to be some preliminary stuff. Whether or not that applies to crippling limbs though that remains to be seen.
  18. Let's be real folks you all want to romance the ship.
  19. To be frank I feel some people may have perceived the OP to rather ostentatious and well, that doesn't go over well online. The creation of the topic and vagueness of the post doesn't add much to the credence that OP is being sincere. Speaking for myself I certainly don't feel it's anything other than an opinion I disagree with but because tone can be difficult to tell on the internet I unfortunately don't think the replies in this thread should be all that shocking and people may very well believe that OP is being insincere and perhaps even snobbish. I most certainly don't mind his opinion even though I disagree with it.
  20. The press release literally says Single Player. I would imagine that that's a pretty definitive statement on the matter.
  21. When you said Gauss I thought your meant a Gauss gun and imagined for a brief moment one coming with all preorders. Alas though, you meant guess. As for my guess though I'm thinking late Q3 or early Q4. The lack of a defined date makes me think it's a ways off. You only get one chance to make a first impression and I'm very excited for the game so I'm all for Obsidian taking it's time!
  22. I want it to double down on the dumb honestly. Make the PC dumb as hell.
