I fucking love you in a brotherly, non homosexual way.

THAT is why I'm switching to PC. That and I want to do a revoicing mod for Fallout NV.

Zelda, do you know WHY Microsoft hasn't come out with Gaming PCs? Because if they did that, they couldn't leech money off of people. Everything you just said is complete bullshit, not in that it's made up, but because it's one of the stupidest things that I could ever call truth. What games DOES the XBox/360 actually have that aren't multi-platform? Because I can't even think of one. Every single time that they came out with a new Call of Duty game, I heard people around me saying "Oh, it's so good, it's amazing, ag;lshdgsriue" And I wonder to myself "Why?"

They push the "realism" factor, but you could learn more about war by reading. Oh, but we can't have books in front of people, we can't have intelligence, now, can we? Then people won't buy our games! You could have a better experience doing a CRAP TON of other things. Earn a few dollars, play a sport, it's not like you play any games where you do something you couldn't do without a TV in front of you!

Then, as Zelda said, the "Mature Content." More blood, more sex, more customers. WHY? I DO NOT COMPREHEND THIS, AMERICA! If you want blood and sex, you have the internet. It's kinda FULL of that. It's not like the game itself is THAT fun. No matter what your reaction time is, it's not like you can turn in-game like you could in reality. And that results in bull-shit deaths. I, like any person with good sense, do not like bull-shit deaths. They're not a "challenge," they're a pothole to work around, and it's tedious and annoying.

Difficulty. Oh, dear me, the difficulty. Either it's not there, or it's dogs. The FUCKING dogs. Like "Okay, quicktime event or you die instantly!" I've played a few of these games, and that's how it is every single time. It's not like I HAVE A KNIFE THAT I COULD STAB THEM WITH OR ANYTHING! Nope, Quicktime event! Oh, didn't make it? Well FUCK YOU. The rest of the game? Not really hard. How can it be hard? There's no fucking objective! Run around, shoot things. That is your objective. Story? Nah, hell with that, WE GOT GUNS!!1!!! It's like the 1990s media just won't go away... They have no real story, no characters I feel the need to give a damn about, no new mechanics, no creativity (Hmmm, World War I or Vietnam...?) and nothing as a whole.

THAT is why I don't like FPS games. THAT is why I don't have an XBox, or a 360. I never WILL have either of them. And funny enough, I have a friend who says that the one that people like the least? Yeah, that's the one that has likeable characters and development. I can't freaking STAND this shit! GAH!!!

Ugh, even when I'm trying to calmly end my post, I look back and it gets me ALL kinds of riled up...I'm going back to my fruit.

Honestly, I haven't seen that much of the Fallout series, though I did see a few episodes of a Fallout 3 LP. I think that a post-apocalyptic setting, while in and of itself not that original, brings something interesting to a genre that is generally about nothing more than running around and killing crap. I like the fact that they make use of this through the mutants and such, rather than just using it as an excuse for the map to be empty.

Ultimately, I have liked what I've seen so far, and it's not hurt by the fact that there are no instant-death dogs that I've seen. I can't form too much of an opinion, though, since like I said, I haven't actually played them.

Lol. It took me five times re-reading that opening statement about bullshit for me to actually get what you were saying XD But yeah, it really is sad.

As someone who has played both, and a portion of Skyrim, let me tell you what I think of it, Doc.

F3: Great, decent game, shows how humanity has turned into a fuckpit, etc, though not as well done as Borderlands (but that's for a different reason).

FNV: F3 with gambling overtones.

Skyrim: F3 with a medieval faceplate and a whole new combat engine. Not a bad game, I'm just cynical.

My take on Fallout? Never played it, have no interest in it, an despite hearing a general good opinion on it the games, most of my friends seem to utterly despise the franchise. So there you go.

AKeybladeYouSayThey changed the Always-on DRM policy.
Whatever the fuck thar means.


DRM is Digital Rights Management. 


Having DRM means to do the following.


Cannot play used games. Games are linked to an account and you can share this between only 10 systems you choose. I believe it would have allowed you to play the games without discs.


However that would require a 24 hourly system update check to ensure your console is up to date. This is a lengthy process oppose to today. I hate having to update monthly for Patches on games like Call of Duty and Gears of War, and that says a lot about CHECKING DAILY FOR UPDATES!


Another thing is region-lock. You couldn't have played games from another country. This is a big deal if you order from play-Asia. 




So everything I just said is OUT.


That means it requires a disc to play the games now. (Oh no! I need a thing to play a thing! What's next I need lungs and oxygen to live?)

And that, my friends, is why Microsoft is a terrible company!

On a related note, sales of the WiiU skyrocketed the day the XBox One was announced. I find that hilarious.

Meh. I only play games like CoD because I get bored, and want to have some mindless time of running around killing things without an objective, and, because that's one of the only shooters my friends will play, Halo excluded.

Speaking of Halo, it isn't that bad of a shooter. Unlike CoD, it actually has premise before any of the games come into it. That, and its story doesn't just rely on games to be told. There are books, a web series, and an animated movie as well.


TL;DR While they screwed up 4 big time, IMO, the overall series isn't that bad. It actually has some sort of objective.

EDIT: It's probably the only thing that Microsoft actually has going for it, for the last generation at least.

If you're looking for mindless killing, couldn't you just go play an MMO?

And I've heard a few good things about Halo. I played some, not too much, and it wasn't bad. Granted, it was...I have no idea what it was called, but there were no enemies. I just went berserk with the Mongoose.

@Haar My friends play a lot of FPS games like Mass Effect, BioShock, and TF2, and they're also really into League of Legends, which I still need to play.

Also, in an attempt to relate this to the topic, one of said friends has actually told me that he's shifted allegiances from consoles to developers. In his mind, so long as you're not EA or the group that made Dead Island, he most likely doesn't have a problem with you. For the record, that's his opinion, not mine, I haven't played Dead Island.

Haar, aren't you a huge Red Versus Blue fan? How could you, if you haven't played much Halo?


But saying that I should say AH/RT are the sole reason for me playing Minecraft. >_>

I've seen the first nine seasons of RvB twice, and I've only touched a Halo game twice: When I was put into a deathmatch with nothing but Plasma Swords and Grenades, and when I tried playing Reach. I kicked ass in the former, and died stupidly in the latter.
