Well, that's awesome. More people getting to experience this game is a good thing.

edit: hmm, I worded that second part incorrectly. Rather, why the fuck would he bounce back and forth between being scared of millennia-long dead creators and intrigued by vaginal/penis/snake things? Is he, like, a really insular dude with 0 understanding of how the world works in connections? Ugh.

Maybe the vaginal/penis/snake things are to him what puppies are to Matthew Rorie.

But yeah that character was pretty bad. Him and the dude who ends up being burned alive by Charlize Theron. Like what the hell "WE'RE GOING TO SPACE TO MEET OUR MAKERS!!!!" then they find a dead body and he just becomes an alcoholic over night because he's bummed and don't want to look for answers anymore.

So he's going to start a tumblr of him walking around petting people's genitalia? Uh..

Also, I think the only mildly interesting/sensical character was Idris Elba's, and that was just generic but at least had a consistent arc. I think. I dunno, I don't want to think about this movie anymore.

This is one very specific reason I hate the internet. The fact that people feel it necessary to align themselves with either side of this stupid, stupid scenario. Neither side can bring this argument up without some amount of snobbery.

Also, it's an argument to begin with. That shit is dumb.

That fucking biologist...

Oh my god, nothing infuriated me more than that totally unbelievable character. Why would he be allowed on a deep space dive if he had absolutely 0 mental stability? OR scientific curiosity for that matter? Jesus Christ, that fucking prick annoyed me so hard.

Anyways, I'll say it again, all this sounds great, but I really hope they back this up. Now I don't think Bethesda has the best writing or anything, but there's a reason beyond that why their games don't have that involved stories or quests or anything... it's hard to do that on their scale, their level of freedom, etc. So I love what the CDPR guys are saying but it's going to be very difficult to pull off. No one wants them to do it more than me though.

I feel like this is one of the few level-headed comments in here. No wonder I agree with it.

Also Skyrim sucks, lololol.

I... uhh, nothing really. NV has a world populated with more interesting characters, more interesting encounters, more interesting factions and quests... and pretty much everything else. It has similar enough gameplay to F3 because of the engine, but because Obsidian had hindsight on some stuff (companions for instance) they fixed some stuff. Also, it's pretty bug free on vanilla PC at this point (or at least I never got a single bug 30 hours in).

Well that was delightful. No really, that was fucking rad.

Neither of them were very good, in my opinion. I mean, in respect to the Alien franchise they are very bland movies. As sci-fi movies they're okay, but as schlocky/shitty horror movies they're fun popcorn flicks. Oh, and I'm going to bring up Prometheus because I've only just recently seen it. Holy shit that can't be included in the same breath as those four Alien movies. That's a whole 'nother level of shitty dialogue, stupid shoehorning, and everything else that makes movie re-boots/prequels really bad.

And I have absolutely no nostalgia for these movies - I think the first one I saw was actually Resurrection only a few years back. Then Alien, then 3, and finally Aliens. It doesn't take nostalgia to realize where the good movies are in that bunch :D

Not since the first day, no. It takes about four seconds of adaptation, and I used the fuck out of those main page discussions.
