I will always hate the idea of a digital only age. I have no issue with digital always coexisting with physical, but as a replacement, it sucks.

Jesus Christ, it's coming back to me now. All the perfect scores and shit this game got really annoyed the shit out of me back then. It's a VERY good game, but it's not perfect.

I don't see why that would annoy you, unless you have a personal thing against Last of Us or Naughty Dog. It was a fantastic game in pretty much every respect, which is why it got the scores that it did.

It's because if something is a 10/10, it means it's absolutely flawless, there's NOTHING wrong with it whatsoever, and they personally believe that the game could not be improved upon at all. THAT is what annoys me. In a perfect world, no game would ever receive a 10/10.

... What?

As lead Director of not only Fallout 4, but also Fallout 7 and 8, I can confirm that there will indeed be a form of transportation that is not walking. We are currently experimenting our new bipedal tank vehicles as well as bipedal robot feet tech. Look for more new info at E3, Gamescom, Pax, Tokyo Game Show, and then E3 again.

Isn't the game basically an interactive movie. I guess I don't see the point in making the movie. I mean, I will watch it. And probably enjoy it. I just don't see the point other than money.

A movie is a better storytelling medium than a game. The Last of Us had a pretty great story when the game wasn't getting in the way.

I completely disagree with this sentiment. In fact, I think that often the medium of feature length films is the weakest format to tell stories in, especially when adapting other sources. Books, TV shows and video games have the luxury of almost infinite time, that is to say that they can be as long as the creator sees necessary. Movies often have to be compressed with a lot of material left on the cutting room floor in order to be able to conform to the two hour format of a feature length film. It's why George R.R Martin and the creators of the Game of Thrones chose to make a series on TV rather then turn A Song of Ice and Fire into movies. They said that it was sort of like having the choice to adapt the books into a series of 2 hour movies, or a season of 10 hour movies.

There's a lot of character development that happens in games while the player is controlling the character, and that is something that is usually lost in adaptions. They will take the key plot elements but strip out all the little details that made the adventure great simply because that is the reality of movies. Don't take this as me saying that there haven't been successful adaptions into film, because there obviously has been. But I sincerely think that it is one of the least impact full ways to tell a story.

Short disclosure first: When eating cow, people in my country tend to leave nothing behind... NOTHING. So, there are weird dishes that include the kidneys, the brain, the guts, the blood, etc... what in english you call "offal".

Funny thing is, in general, I like a lot of those "side dishes" more than the asado, which is closest we get to beef.

The other things are whatever... but the blood? That is possibly the grossest most disease ridden thing you can consume from an animal.

I don't see the problem with her being 17 when you're only 21 going on 22. Relationships within the 5 year age difference don't seem that weird to me, past the age of 16. I mean 16 and 21 is a tad weird, but not so weird that it is morally wrong or something. Especially if you've know the person for a while. Isn't there some sort of Romeo and Juliet law or whatever that says within 5 years is cool?

All I know of Twin Peaks is that Deadly Premonition was heavily influenced by it. So... that's something.

@liquidprince: Don't pretend like slow installations are an X1 problem, they happen on the PS4 as well - while not an owner, I have co-workers that have it and they complain of it every time a new game comes out.

And your first sentence? Basically just reaffirms Charlie_victor_bravo's point. People got upset, so things changed, then people get upset they changed and refuse to see anything positive in pretty much everything. It's a shame.

They are indeed primarily a X1 problem that has been documented through a variety of comparisons online. The PS4 is not affected by it anywhere near the amount that the X1 is, which basically takes forever installing every single game. As for your second point... what is your actual point? People had a right to get upset because the policies that Microsoft introduced were shit. I'm not dogging them for changing the policies, because if they hadn't I would have never purchased one at all. The solution would have been to never introduce them in the first place. Any amount of foresight on Microsoft's part would have allowed them to realize that the world is still at least a solid console generation away from being able to fully support an all digital model with the accompanying DRM. Even then, many people across the world will lose the ability to play console games since they don't have the consistently fast internet speeds required. It was poor decision making on their part, and nothing they do afterwards will really remove the dark cloud that hung over the consoles announcement.
