    In their head quarters, as with any self-respecting business centre, there is a small closed lid with the other elevator buttons. You unlock it with a small key, and are granted access to the hidden level. This comprises of three entire stories - all in one floor, with high ceilings, dim lighting, and at the end, a long table, with dark velvet curtains draping the walls.

    This is the brandy room. Here the real decisions are made, and always under the influence of copious ammounts of opium and ketamine, coupled with pastries made from semen and menstruation blood, concluded by sessions of prostate stimulation

    Whatever goodwill may have came from the gameplay was absolutely murdered by one of the most annoying and abrasive supporting cast in gaming ever and had made people wish there was an option to join the Nazis in game because of them.

    No. Times can change. After Fallout 4 made billions of money in shorter timespan than Skyrim and Todds masters became too generous on his bonus payment to afford luxuries, he clearly changed. Started to brag about his wealth, talking shitty at public events, saying he's buddy of Elon Musk, even though he's just one of those extra nice and wealthy customers who thought Tesla is a good vehicle that totally worth its price, basically every negative parts of character one can notice when watching him from outside perspective. A behavior of an omega male who suddlenly got successful at serving to the real masters exploiting his ability to speak lies and be nice at the same time. He thinks it's normal and gets confirmation after every succesful TES or Fallout release, he just becomes more and more noticeable shitter, with every failure or scandal following his so-called games. And OP got it right.

    Guy seems to be kind of a hack that can't manage projects properly but from that to dedicate him any more vitriol seems like a waste of energy.

    He's a cool "bro" guy to hang out with. It's mentioned around in the interwebs that he's regarded as largely inept at managing projects - so definitely not the first time I've heard it mentioned.

    I think any ire that Petey gets, on the other hand, is warranted. Dude cancels interviews with you if the company you represent tweets memes making fun of Fallout 76 announcements.

    Petty Hines.

    So what you’re saying is that this is less accurate than if it was Pete Hines

    Pete Hines is indeed a vindictive douchebag.

    There's a picture floating around where someone photoshopped Pete's face to look like a Fallout 1 Super Mutant...

    Here we go:

    It’s both hideous and oddly aesthetically pleasing.

    I don't know why but that made me think of Crusader Kings II. Good times.
