Fallout: New Vegas


Recommended Posts

So something weird was going on there. Either the truck took damage (and I hit the dynamite), then exploded a little later from gunshots, or it had two degrees of explodeyness.

Most explode-y cars have two phases - the engine *pops* and catches fire (which is your signal to put some distance between you and it) and then the whole thing goes up. I don't remember the first phase ever doing damage, though, so it sounds like you hit the dynamite.

So is 85 metacritic score good? Or is that the new ****?

 

PC Version has 88 currently PS3 84. It's good for the moment and its Obsidians highest rated game yet.

It's average/good overall. A lot of games get that kind of metacritic score, but it's still better than most of what Obsidian has done (KOTOR2 has the same metacritic score btw).

 

NV is actually higher

 

Kotor2 PC: 85

NV PC: 88

An 85 metacritic score is very good. Everything (or almost everything) that gets above 80 on MC is worth playing.

 

This contradicts what you're regularly posting in the threads about Bioware games.

 

Boo has a job to do, dangit, and it's bigger than whether a game is good or not. He is the Anti-champion of Bioware!

Good to know that Obsidian seems to be doing okay at the moment. Funny thing about KOTOR2 is that the way internet remembers it, one would guess it was a 25 game.

Enough with the dancing clown.

Scores don't mean anything. I can't count the number of times I've seen absolute manure get 90+%.

 

I agree that from the consumer point of view they should mean nothing. And metacritic has fishy methods to boot. But it's something that developers and most of all, publishers, look at.

I'm pleased to report that Steam will have to whistle for my custom

 

I told them accidentally that January this year was my birthday, and now I'm not allowed to view the purchase screen. Clearly a child of only ten months can't be allowed to buy things on the internets. Wankers.

Metacritic's always been kinda bull****, one in that it makes arbitrary scores even more arbitrary and also in that it "converts" non-percentile review score systems, which distorts what scores would have been (for example, Gerstmann's pretty glowing 4-star review becomes a middling-by-gaming-press-standards 80%).

Well of course scores don't matter to me, because I am an Obsidian fanboi. I love them whatever they do. I even have an altar dedicated to Obsidian where I sacrifice babies and kittens every night so they would avoid the fate of Troika. But like every true believer I would like my god to be loved by more people. And unfortunantely, it seems that metacritic forms the opinion for most people. So when Obsidian succesful in metacritic, a true believer like me is filled with joy and all sorts of fuzzy warm feelings towards mankind.
