    Beth fanboys have completely stopped trying to argue Bethesda makes good ames, they are just going wit h"It makes money so it's good" argument that no one looking to be take nseriously would ever make. Kinda says a lot.

    I wasn't aware of anyone here arguing in favor of Beth games.. The other thing, however, is notable because some people are unable to distinguish between can't and wont do something.

    Basically, unlike your black and white view that send you running for the pitchfork every time your evil empire is mentioned. Meanwhile, I think that it is possible to understand the reasons for mainstream appeal and appreciate when its leveraged right, without having to like it or think that their work is anything but common domination verity..

    You assume most of us don't understand why Beth is doing what Beth is doing? :confused:

    I still think it's funny, because Obsidian and Ubisoft have shown that you can make deep games and still get them out as AAA products. Is Obsidian as succesfull like Bethesda? Maybe not, when you go purely by sales figures. But I think this has also something to do with Zenimax beeing the powerhouse behind Bethesda. Obsidian is for the most part an independed studio. Beth is spending a lot of finances on marketing, and it shows.

    And I don't even believe that New Vegas is the perfect Fallout game. Far from it! But it is the closest game to a Fallout 3 you can get at the moment.

    Where does the "glittering gems of hatred" thing come from, by the way?

    If you like that one, also look up "Internet Curmudgeon with a Heart of Radioactive Gold". :)

    Pieces of NMA & Fallout history.

    I remember how some parts of the "gaming press" cried out loud when it came out NMA sneaked into the presentation. That was pretty funny.

    How long until they accuse us of being racist towards Bethedsa?

    Wouldn't surprise me if they already do.

    "The oldest fansite in Fallout history, a community that loves the Fallout universe more than anything else in the world, has thoroughly rejected Bethesda’s take on the fiction."
    Wasn't that the unwashed village?

    They claimed (amongst other things) that the write up that Brother None & I made from the preview at Leipzig was impossible to do without abusing recording devices of some sort (which were not allowed at the preview, of course). That was quite flattering really. Either we were amazing amateur guerilla journalists or elite spies with awesome recording devices.

    No recording done on our part, except by hastily taking notes on the fly and doing our darnest to remember everything afterwards.


    It's just too bad (& sad) that our shared observations and expectations proved to be pretty spot on.

    They were probably surprised you were able to take detailed notes while everyone was enamored with exploding bodies.

    It's gaming journalists.
    They were probably blown away by the fact that someone could even brain.

    Well that kind of just says a lot about the modern gaming press "What? they actually analyzed footage without jizzing their pants at every mention of the word cool? They must be witches!".

    Journalists always put their skill points into Lip Service and Blowjobs and never Critical Analysis or Damning With Fine Praise.
