I can't remember the game, but there was one point in a previous deliberation where three people said "Yeah, we can cut this game. It's on my personal list, so that's fine" and then somebody realizing "Wait, if this is on so many personal lists, why are we cutting it?"

I really wanted to keep track of every time someone said "that's gonna be on my personal list" and see who had the longest list.

I know I need to watch the Wire but holy shit, those episodes are long.

It just makes me sad that a game can be made in this state and still make so much money.

I have zero desire to watch Dan or anyone else on their daily routine, but I guess people are watching and geting something out of it, so whatever. I've wasted plenty of time betting fake money on saltybet, so do what you wanna do.

They do suck, but I can deal with that. The real issue is how expensive they are despite the suckage. Unfortunately, I don't live in Western New York, so good wings are hard to come by.

Maybe sticking with this engine means the game will have way less bugs and run at constant 60fps, that would be a cool surprise.

If this game runs at 60fps on consoles I'll give Ron Perlman a tuggie.

As someone who didn't even like Fallout 3 that much, I'm weirdly excited.

As far as visuals? I would rather a game be honest about what it looks like than try to wow people in a trailer and then have the final product look a good deal worse. I think the game looks fine based on the little revealed so far.

I sort of feel bad for developers, because you really can't win. Make a game that looks super gorgeous in the early trailers but comes out looking more modest, people will lose their shit and call you lying downgraders. Release trailers about your game with very honest expectations for what it will look like, and people will call it ugly.

I mean, you can get away with in-game trailers if your game looks good. GTA5 looked great last generation, and the trailers looked great despite being rendered in-game. In this case, I guess I expected a little more graphical improvement over Fallout 3/Skyrim, but I guess that's not necessarily their fault with how little of a step forward the new consoles took. Maybe sticking with this engine means the game will have way less bugs and run at constant 60fps, that would be a cool surprise.

Personally, 2007 wins it for gracing us with Team Fortress 2. I bought two damn versions of that game and spent countless hours playing it. Plus I remember my time with Modern Warfare and Assassin's Creed a lot of those games very fondly.
