    I got you, man. Fuck traditional RPGs. The one I'm developing currently is about working a shitty retail job, not wizards and goblins.

    100%. It's even in monochrome.

    Edit, straight from my notes:

    I've played hundreds of hours of New Vegas, and I still don't particularly like pre-1960's popular music.

    (Though I think that the music choice for the original games' intros was excellent, and Country Western music really fits the setting as diegetic music in New Vegas)

    It bothers me that they play that at all. Bethesda changed (simplified) the setting. The original setting was about the future not the past; and the music of the future would not be the music of the past... it would be inspired by it, but it would be different artists making new music. You know... like Cameo and Iggy Pop.

    Ah I see, that sneaky Todd Howard was the one who used the Ink Spots and Louis Armstrong in the first two Fallout games.

    There is a distinction with the title track. In fact the original team wanted to use "I don't want to set the world on fire"... but they wanted too much money to license it. They found Maybe in the back catalog, and discovered that it worked even better. Its theme was about someone possibly missing the singer (the old world) when they were gone.

    Fallout uses Maybe in the title, as a remembrance of the old world as it was... but for the rest of the game—all of the music that accompanies the world as it is... is not of the old world. It actually is linked and indicative of the locations, and cultures the player finds. They commissioned this music; they actually got flak from their marketing department for this music.

    They were questioned about how depressing it sounded—and they explained that it was deliberate; the whole world is dead in the game. They could have just as easily licensed (cheaper) 40's & 50's tunes, or commissioned new 50's style music—had that been their intention. It's a shame that Bethesda didn't.

    I personally like the Scavenger-esque title that people use the relics of the past because it's a remnant of what was once there.

    I thought borderlands was pretty good before I spent like three hours playing it. I haven't picked it up since.

    My little pony (friendship is magic) is good, no matter how girly it seems. It is way better than current cartoons.

    Also my little pony mods are fun, well except for the anthro things. Those are just weird.

    I hate Borderlands and love Borderlands 2 to an obsessive degree.

    I'm kind of Meh about the Pre-Sequel.

    They're literally the same game. Besides When I said borderlands I meant borderlands 2.

    Well, one has a hilariously well-written script and a R-rated version of STAR WARS as its plot with wonderful characters like Handsome Jack, Lilith, and Roland all getting significant character development as well as scenes.

    The other has you looking for a Vault.

    They play the same, look the same, and have the same tone. They also have the same "lel how quirky" humor. There's almost no difference to speak of.

    Both feel pretty bare fucking bones on that front too.
