Can't really argue against the master. I mean really how much longer are we going to buy into Obsidian's lies and continue to make up excuses for them? Why can't we just accept the fact that... they suck?

And they're still horrible. So what's your excuse for liking sh!tty games, Shake?

This dipsh!t doesn't even know that LucasArts published KoTOR II and was completely responsible for the rushed state of that product, so I see no reason to take his verbal diarrhea masquerading as intellect (5 PC exclusives a year? Really? I expect this forum to make more intelligent statements and that is saying something) seriously.

lately.. why have you been posting videos of spergs ranting?
#10 Posted by drinkerofjuice (3236 posts) -

It physically hurt hearing that. I want my four minutes back.

Obsidian definitely need to work on making their games properly playable on release, but I believe in New Vegas' case at least, Bethesda restricted their budget and development time, so maybe they're not entirely to blame, though still worth blaming.

I just can't stay mad at them given how fantastic New Vegas is.

Coming from someone who likes Nier, this seems hypocritical. Obsidian make fantastic games. They just need better budgets and bug testing teams.

RE4 is garbage? Vanquish is garbage? Nier, Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, BF3, Arkham City, MGS4, and Crysis are... garbage? B*tch please. All of the games I grant praise are glorious.

Nier didn't suffer from a mountain of bugs and glitches. It had low prodution values but was technically solid. It actually felt like a finished game.

[...] MGS4 [...] garbage? [...]Master_ShakeXXX
Yes.
#19 Posted by toast_burner (22049 posts) -

Obsidian continue to release great games, sure they are glitchy but I'd rather play a great game with some bugs then a piece of crap with no bugs.

Name an Obsidian game that was released under a lax schedule and suffered from "a mountain of bugs and glitches". All the Obsidian games released that did (and were later fixed) were pushed out by publishers to meet their schedule. Nier had bugs, and it had a lot of stuff that could have benefitted by more polish (it was largely passable, and was.carried forward mainly by the story and characters). The only "incomplete" game Obsidian released was The Sith Lords. And everyone and their grandmother knows why.

I don't remember coming across bugs in NWN 2 or the expansion pack.

so really, as long as they have the time to work out the kinks, they can release a mostly bug free game

The only bad game Obsidian made was Dungeon Siege 3. Everything else they have made I would consider to be a quality product.

This gen? All of them.

By modders, not by Obsidian. And just because the games were eventually fixed doesn't make the game's original state anymore acceptable.

Scapegoating. This is exactly what the video in my OP was poking fun at.

I didn't encounter a single major bug. The only noteworthy technical problem with that game, that I can recall, is framerate dips.

You relaize they had less than two years to make New Vegas , right? Same with Dungeon Siege? That's called being rushed, you pleb.

Neverwinter Nights 2 no mention of Bugs

Neverwinter Nights 2: MOTB "Aside from those issues and a few small bugs, Mask of the Betrayer is a fairly polished game" but even then it wasn't enough to warrant a place in "The bad" line

#29 Posted by Boddicker (2881 posts) -

They made the best RPG on consoles this gen (New Vegas), so I can forgive them.

#31 Posted by HoolaHoopMan (7842 posts) -
Considering NV is the best RPG this gen I would say no.

His favorite games are PC exclusives so, no.

you definitely weren't one of the original GSers hyping it. If anything, you were a band wagoner at best (after it was announced as a localization).

you definitely weren't part of the great bioshockownz battles.

So you haven't played it. Missing out on the best game of the gen and one of the greatest stories ever told in gaming because it received mixed reviews. Might I remind you that Spec Ops recieved mixed reviews as well. Maybe I will play Spec Ops and start praising that so you hate it, muwahahaha

I had to stop watching when he said that PC only gets 5 exclusives a year.

#40 Posted by Jankarcop (9964 posts) -

5 exclusivse a year.

look at gaming websites that show it has more than all 3 consoles combined every year this gen.

.....what?

#41 Posted by freedomfreak (41496 posts) -
Obsidian's buggy games are overblown. Sure, they might be at launch, but they do their very best to patch them up. I've ran into 1 glitch in NV, and it was a minor one.

you hype garbage that doesn't score well and hasn't won anything, and you list your shi* games along with games that have actually done well on here.

Kandlegoat

When did I praise KoA? I hate that game. I said I was looking forward to it a few times before release but I was hardly hyping it. The only game I've ever truly put a lot of effort into hyping on here was Vanquish. I don't really get excited for games anymore unless it looks like something completely new and different.

And no, I was not hyping Sniper Elite V2. That was trolling. There's a difference.

I liked Spec Ops before you did, so that saves it. And the more praise you heap on Nier, the more I want nothing to do with it. the best way to sell me on that game would be making a thread publicly denouncing it.

So you finally realized that cynicism (or at the very least, mild pessimism) and critical analysis are better than euphoric excitation and hyperbole? Good. About time. And I recall you got pretty excited overt KoA, until the repetitive nature of the game kicked in.

It wouldn't be anything if you didn't hype the same crap games for 7 threads each, and now it doesn't help you keep posting vids of ranting spergs to support your arguments.
I don't play my games according to scores, but when we're playing by system wars rules you better believe I hype what counts instead of your trash.

yes. he was hyping - yet again - another crap game until he probably realized that it didn't catch on. He'll probably call it "trolling" through.
