"Chris Avellone- the guy who accused Bethesda of stiffing Obsidian on FNV's metacritic bonus"

 

He did?

No, it definately was Chris. Sawyer caused the buggy PS3 code "scandal"

To be fair the quoted sentence is not entirely accurate, I just didn't want to go full Longknife and write paragraphs being entirely accurate on a throwaway point.

 

(The tweet only mentioned the fact that the bonus existed and they missed it by one point, that there would be accusations of manipulation would seem to be a obvious and inevitable consequence of the tweet- and it would have annoyed Bethesda it's safe to say- but it was not actually a part of the tweet.

Doom dropped Denuvo.

Well, possibly. I couldn't find a reliable source on this.

I saw it on Kotaku although I'm not sure what their source is.

 

 

Article on this:

 

http://arstechnica.co.uk/gaming/2016/12/after-cracks-developers-remove-denuvo-drm-from-their-games/

 

Looks like Doom is not the only game which dropped Denuvo.

 

Rumours say, that Denuvo refunds publishers, if the game is cracked in some timeframe after release of the game.

Yeah it was Chris. What is that "scandal" did Sawyer cause? If I remember correctly gamebyro never performed well with ps3 either with Oblivion or FO3/Vegas. Don't know about Skyrim.

He said something along the lines of gamebryo running the worst on a PS3 system. This was reason enough for people to jump the barricades.

It does run kinda well on pc, if you add the 4gb patch and crash-fix, etc. At least FNV on my machine. :> I rarely see crashs nowadays. Fo3 on the other hand even without a single mod goes down the ****ter after approx 30 minutes of playing.

Only scandal Sawyer caused was when he sang in German.

has actual been a couple, though call such stuff "scandal" is always debatable.  nevertheless, to prevent it from being forgotten, we will once again reference the misadventure regarding josh's wotc criticism.  a failed attempt to adopt the monte cook ranger for iwd2 had josh in full vitriol ie message board posting mode. funny stuff.  josh were mighty upset with wotc hypocrisy and irrationality. unfortunate, the josh posts were quickly erased.  after the board were sanitized, we had folks higher up the ie food chain actual trying to tell us that no such posts ever existed, which were mighty amusing for those o' us who actual read 'em before the board edit.  

 

luckily (for josh)  the monte cook ranger meltdown happened 'fore the advent o' social media.  

 

HA! Good Fun!

Nah, it will be the mystery of the new series

The obvious answer is going to Andromeda means they don't have to detangle the end of the original series.

 

The funny thing is that they will have to address this in the games to come, if any more are made at all after this.

 

Timetravel. I bet the next Mass Effect series after Andromeda will be about timetravel. Just so that Bioware don't have to do choice and consequence from previous games or come up with new setting.

Anyone know the latest on Dishonored 2. Was the PC port fixed?

Check out the latest Steam reviews, mentions of bad performance are actually fairly rare. Apparently, for some people, framerate dips still happen, but aren't nearly as severe. The game ran okay for me on launch and runs perfectly now so not much to complain about.

 

As it always is with these things tho: YMMV

Well for all their faults I really liked playing the Mass Effect games. Dragon Age 1 and 2 as well. The teen romance doesn't detract anything imo. I guess Bioware makes me feel like I'm in a cheesy B movie with a large budget. Not an altogether unpleasant experience.
