    What happened in Frontier?
    (Season 2 wasn't really 'bad' IMO, it was just mediocre. Michonne on the other hand felt clumsy, uncoordinated and forced)

    Considering going to the pictures cost like 10 bucks and you get an hour and half on average of entertainment I'd say that for a cinematic story with mild interactive elements 5 bucks for 90 minutes of content is worth it. :shrug:

    Then again, it all depends on what those 90 minutes of cinematic story with mild interactive elements actually consist of. If the quality is shit then it is 5 bucks wasted. Personally, I didn't see the point toe TWDMichonne. Cashgrab as far as I can see. Game Of Thrones just felt like torture porn and I ain't into that. Then there's 'yet another' Batman reboot. Joy... And I quite frankly would prefer it if they'd just stop trying to be "games" at all and just give us a movie-experience with the occasional actual 'choice'.

    I knew I had shitty taste!

    I think the Constantine movie is decent and a hell of a lot better than what DC is doing right now with their live action movies.

    Which is why I said near perfect. It has its problems, but they were either of the time or fairly minor. This is of course with Fallout Fixt, it's a 9/10 game. Without fixt, it's an 8.

    Renting a movie online or watching one in your paid service costs even less and you can pause to mash numpad keys randomly. And this isn't only Telltale.
    Video Games should seriously back away from sucking up cinema so much and instead do more towards theatre and even series. "Cinematic" After all, a game story is a lot more like a play than a movie.

    The Hermione Granger - Ron Weasley romance was really stupid and hamfisted writing by Rowling. They showed near zero interest in each other outside of just being really good friends, and suddenly they're in love and married by the end.

    It doesn't help that Rowling basically said "lul it was fanservice" as the reason. Fuck me.

    I do admit, it was amusing how all the Harry and Hermione shippers gave her shit for it for years thereafter.

    Well, J wanted Hermione to end with the decent dependable lad despite the fact Ron is dumb as a post and I can't imagine they'll have much in the way of scintillating conversations.

    Fallout: Nevada is the best and the definitive Fallout, period. (Yes, I'm a sadistic troll, even original F:N creator have different opinion)

    The way White Wolf returns to Vampire: The Masqurade (and also Mage: The Ascention) regarding video game scene/industry is pretty embarassing.

    What have they done?

    1. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a better game than Deus Ex 1.

    2. Hillary was an awful awful technocrat warmonger but people who voted for Trump had serious issues ignoring his dangerous lack of qualifications.

    3. I really wish Arnold could be President.

    4. Nuclear power is awesome and should be used more often.

    Hired some politically bothered students (apparently) to make writing for their new VtM & M:tA so-called games (essentially VNs) with the expected mess of a result. And WWolf's high opinion on indie devs is not a good sign.
    Not even unpopular, just wrong, as squaredrons tend to think alike. And wrong essentially because at the very least DX1 is a finished and working game.

    I actually hadn't heard anything about either game which is part of why I was confused. I only know about Cyanide and Werewolf.

    ....

    Dude, DX1 was one of the BUGGIEST games of all time.

    Oh, now it's not Vampire: Bloodlines. That's something different and refreshing. In VTMB vs DX holywars Deus Ex stands out as a game that works right out of the box unlike Bloodlines which needs patches to resamble working condition.

    Clearly you never experienced Daggerfall if you're saying such 'touching' things. :lol:

    I like the DX:MD and DX:HR more than the original. Granted dialogue based choice/effect and overall story/themes were handled somewhat better in the original but gameplay is king and its a more streamlined and focused deus ex games.
