    Fuck Telltale for destroying the Walking Dead game franchise, it went from amazing (season 1) to bad (season 2) and now they have fucked us all by making this crap called the Frontier. Fuck off Telltale you absolute morons

    A day's worth of Gaming for 5 bucks? No one has refuted it because it's kind of a vague statement that doesn't really mean much, all telltale games offer at the most 2 hours per episode, 90 minutes more often than not. Just because you repeatedly decided to replay the exact same thing over and over doesn't mean the game has enhanced instrinsic value, it just means you like to do the same thing over and over.

    And Wolf among us, whoever wrote that shit didn't read more than the blurb at the back of the first Issue of Fables and maybe did a quick search for character names and IT SHOWS.

    Yeah, they did an amazing noir game which much improved on Fables' weaknesses. :)
     
  4. - First clue! It's not like a lot of games get to version, like, 3.2.14 or something! So you say that dedicated devs and loyal community/fanbases only form in episodic games becouse...
    Most if not all the PC (original) games I've played had a year or more of patching and sorting out of the initial product. And with indies? Main example of this is Minecraft. And that's not accounting Early Access, Betas and Alphas. Some shit like, dunno, Cube World stays in Beta dev hell forever, but that's the exception.

    - Aren't those contracts a PS4 exclusive thing? Games have got an online component post-release a long time already. Namely Dragon Quest IX's daily quests and market deals, and daily/weekly runs, events in plenty other games like L4D2, MOBAS, Roguelikes...

    I see is that what you are thinking about are chapters of bloody 10 Gigs each, but for AAA a "game" is worth what a game is worth; the value/content doesn't matter. That's why For Honor vanilla costs 60$. And Telltale games cost 30$ bundled, most Indie games cost the same and have at least 10x the play value.
    Releasing what is supposed to be a full fledged, game in parts would just result in a mess. Maybe it's my rustic mindset.

    - ??? You can buy a lot of different games for 5$ in sales that can last you forever. FNV costed me 3$ (later DLC for 10$) and i have 400 hours in it.
    Starbound 7 and 200
    Terraria 4 and 150
    FTL 4 and 140
    Unturned 0 and 140
    BL2 10 and 250
    Looooooong etc. Check out my Steam library if so

    Are you grateful for paying 5$ for 60-120 minutes and consider it a good business model?

    "Amazing" Noir game? Good one.
    I am getting that just like you have obviously never played Fallout 1 and 2 you also haven't actually read Fables.



    Wolf among Us: Bigby has no friends and he just wants to be loved. He is also an incompetent Sheriff who apprently misses the illicit Brothel pushing drugs and prostituting fables exclusively despite Fabletown being Four Blocks in Size.
    Fables: Bigby has issues and he is kind of an asshole but he does in fact have friends, he is quite a good sheriff, having spies everywhere and the Noir detective schtick being something he does for fun.

    WAU: Snow white is a demure secretary who gets flustered with seeing Bigby shirtless while he is being treated by Swineheart.
    F: Snow White is a ball breaker who doeswhatever it takes to keep Fabletown running, she has feelings for Bigby but she expresses them with vitriolic teasing for the earlier parts of the story and she once survived getting shot in the head and stopped a revolution.

    "Improvements!"

    I literally hate the Snow/Bigby romance in Fables and it's pretty much an improvement to focus on Bigby being attracted to ANYONE else.

    I also find Snow's personality...prickly...in Fables and prefer her softer characterization in TWAU.

    Not to mention the fact it's about hookers and slavery versus THE ADVERSARY.

    Except Wolf in the Ass actually over focused on the romance between them to the point of having Bigby whine about her not liking him at the end.

    You prefer a submissive woman? Ok, I guess. Thought you were all "Social justice assassin or some shit.

    And the last one cements it, you haven't read Fables.

    Isn't this suppose to be about unpopular opinions? That seems to be pretty popular nowadays so I am saying you have failed at this thread.

    On a couple of boards, two of which I was banned from and one that was just closed (IMDB), I'd say the ratio of those critical of US/Israel to the...other crew (pro-KKK/Iraq war/dead Muslims in general/dead blacks/gays/socialists/etc. etc.) was about 1/15.

    Why are you having a discussion of US foreign involvement and Zionism on IMDB lmao? Is there an off-topic forum there?

    No. At least I don't think so. They just decided to quit the boards, I mentioned in the General discussion thread of doom - thread. Could be that there was too much anti-Trump stuff there, death threats etc., so they decided to pull the plug.

    Have you been on Facebook? These seem to be pretty popular on there. Also seems to be very black and white with you as you lump a lot of people together as against you.

    I mostly stay out of political debates on Facebook. In general I'm not a huge fan of Zuckerberg's creation. It was interesting how certain individuals seemed to mostly have all the opinions that I listed. They all seem to coalesce with US republican-types and now with Trump, they've gone into hyperdrive.

    I like Bigby/Faith :)

    Then again, I'm a sucker for the PI and hooker arcs.

    I'm a huge noir fan, especially urban fantasy or cyberpunk noir.

    -I think a jewish state needs to exist but the current state of Israel is dangerous and shouldn't exist, a two state solution must happen.

    -The original Turok kinda blows, I like Evolution more

    -Wasteland 2 is a great game and best successor to fallout 2 out there.

    -Underrail is an awful slog of a game. Unbalanced, poor pacing, poor combat design and a shit ton of RPG mistakes.

    -I think XCOM EU/EW is better than the original and Xenonuats (I like both the original and xenonauts)

    -XCOM 2 has a number of improvements over EU/EW but feels incredibly overwhelming, has shitty DLC, poor pacing and bugs to this day.

    -KOTOR and Mass Effect 2 are hands down BioWares BEST rpg's

    -SOMA is overrated and so is all of the rest of Frictionals line up. Bad horror games.

    -avp2 is the best avp game

    (In regards to fallout discussion lets just agree to disagree, But HR imo is still better than Deus ex 1. Planescape Torments issue imo has nothing to do with the writing or choice which are both excellent but the combat is forced/subpar, only one optimal way to play and limited mechanical RPG elements)

  20. Minecraft is a great game

    I find XCOM to be very, very dull and boring. Like Fire Emblem/Wasteland and other tactical RPGs a helluva lot better.
