    Fallout 2 was made before Obsidian was established... and no, just because it has a few people that worked on the first two games does not mean Black Isle and Obsidian are the same company.

    The only bug/issue I ever had with Fallout 2, prepatch, was with the car trunk. Other than that and having to remember where the heck it was sometimes, I had no trouble finishing the game.

    I had more problems with Fallout 1 having bugs than Fallout 2. Of course that was back in the 90's so I might not be remembering correctly.

    I have such fond memories of that car trunk. At first I didn't even realize it was a bug, I just thought that when the Highwayman ran out of fuel, my clever character fashioned a make-shift hand cart from the rear part of the car. Only when the trunk continued to follow me underground and spawn 30 ft inside the wall, did I start to smell a rat (or bug).

    I found another so I recorded it.

    Amazing, Angry Joe gave Fallout 4 a 8/10 despite the number of bugs and problems the game had on launch but gave Arkham Knight a 6/10 but the PC version a 4/10 for the bugs it had on launch. Hypocrisy thy name is Angry Joe.

    Wasn't AK like practically and occasionally literally unplayable at launch for many people?

    I find it disgusting that the is no disclaimer or warning in the page telling people people that they're only buying a 5 gig installer and not the full game.

    Somebody needs to throw a brick in Bethesda's headquarters window with a note reminding them that are people with data caps.

    I guess for some people F4 is unplayable as well.

    This real time dialogue system is unplayable, I was talking to someone whilel they started walking away and I went to click an option and shot my weapon because the shitty real time system sucks.

    Hang around people, and get quests just stapled to your back, *plunk* here's a quest, *plunk* here's another one, you still hanging around? Cool, here *plunk* have a third quest, I'm sure you're quest hungry!

    Oh, yeah, 2 out of 3 lead you to "cleared" dungeons, but you know, consumer whores, what to do, right?

    And you're all "consuma-what, hey, you take that back!"
    And they're all "there, there" *unzips*

    He gets sucked into the hype very easily, and his Skyrim and Rome II reviews are proof of it; Rome II was rated 6/10 by him, despite how long he railed against the devs for releasing a clearly unfinished game during a time when refunds were non-existent on Steam.

    Really? Because I bought it launch week; they finally had patches that allowed you to be fairly confident that you could actually finish the game about three months after launch, or a week after I finished it and traded it in for store credit. I was very disappointed at the time. Now it's pretty darn stable, with a million community patches.

    Are you having the forced quest dialogue as well? I had the lookout robot from the USS Constitution quest follow me all over the map until I talked to the little bastard.

    Don't hang around "the castle" too long either, the radio there pins quests on you like one a minute

    Yeaaaahhhh about that, it did that the moment I finished the Mirelurk Queen quest. Gave me three quests instantly. Well at least I have that mod installed that allows me to have the same damage multiplier as enemies so i'm not fighting bullet sponges on survival difficulty. The game is still sucking asshole so far though but combat is tolerable now, I use that word loosely though.
