  • This to me is the dumbest elephant in the room on GB to date. A lot of people came here after seeing the P4 ER, that grew the audience immensely I imagine. Everybody want's it. If they don't even consider the idea it's like throwing dollars down the drain. I don't get the push back when it comes to ER's in general. Hey guess what, you did a thing people like, oh no, what a pity. Instead of embracing that we're going to push back so it becomes an awkward topic and chastise anyone for bringing it up. Yes the copious amount of suggestion for ER's are annoying but ER's, Quick Looks and the Bombcast to me where the trifecta for GB goodness.

Haha spot on. Now, with no ERs, and inexplicably boring QLs (I actually watch them at night before I sleep. They're not as funny as before but I do feel calm and cozy watching them now) I've lost that love for GB. I get my dose of humorous game videos from Funhaus instead. But nothing can touch the golden era of Giantbomb. Sigh...

I bought the pc-version and already have the thing pre-loaded and ready to go, but I'm still curious 'bout the console versions. Having watched bunch of gameplay videos, I'm probably most interested in the framerate and how it holds up.

How is the performance? I have a laptop that runs Fallout 4/ MGS V pretty well but is struggling with AC: syndicate. Really curious as to which camp this one is gonna fall in.

Oh, 'ts just preloaded and will be like that 'till monday night. I suppose that's still one of the console benefits, being able to play your physical copy ahead of actual release. I'd like to think it'll run okay, at least they didn't say anything out loud in the QL about crazy requirements and it seemed to ran perfectly on their PC, which I don't think is anything too crazy.

Wasn't Mad Max made by Avalanche as well? That ran pretty beautifully on most setups, including mine. Hope this performs similarly.

Why do you need the general public to take it seriously? Do you take the general public seriously?

No.. I don't. You just blew my mind.

Wait.. are we wearing the same glasses?

Looking forward to roughing her up a bit & giving her a new hairstyle when I reach Diamond City.

Do post an update after roughing her up!

@bbalpert: I do love Lucy James :)

Loving all the different character designs on here. Some of the character progression shots (like @toysoldier83, @redyoshi) are especially cool.

@starvinggamer: It's awesome how different and unique the characters look with all sorts of customization

@rethla: Hahaha that's hilarious! Sorta reminds me of Brad Pitt from Troy though.

@grimhild: If this was a contest, that character would definitely win. Looks awesome! Did you remove one of the earlier pics though? Would've been cool to see the progression.

I can't wait for the mods. Must play! But I play pretty slow so I'll still be only about 30 hours in a month later, and there'll be enough mods for me to mess around with by then

I just spent an hour building a wall around sanctuary. It's the most busted ass wall in the history of the universe, but no raider scum will get through it.

To answer your question with a question, why do people play Minecraft? Doing this kinda stuff just hits home with some people, even if it seems aimless from the outside.

Exactly this.

I'll echo this because that's all I want from this feature. I've always wanted more control over my home base in these games. Hearthfire didn't really satisfy that desire - this does.

Yeah, same for goes for The Sims. I usually spend more than half the time building a grand home for my sims, and by the time I have had them earn enough money to move them in to their newly built home, I usually stop playing with them and go on to build another one :)

Idk, reddit definitely loves sensationalist bullshit too.

I guess... i'm still sorta new to reddit. But from whatever I read, most people were being pretty calm and logical about everything. There were the odd genocidal comments though.

Something in this world needs to change

I agree, but it won't because people suck. I mean, people are awesome, but people also suck.

That's very true.

Someone linked a news source on reddit and it led me to this page (periscope.com) (the homepage) I couldn't work out how to make it work so I just clicked the play button and it started playing its intro video/ trailer. Left me sort of speechless.

So much horror and beauty in the same world. People suck and people are awesome. You love the awesome people even more in times like these.
