PIG - 4/5

Like mentioned above, this movie was a big surprise. I heard RLM guys be very positive on it and I turned the video off shortly after that and watched the movie. I would advise going in without reading up too much about it because it really isn't what you think it is and thats part of the charm.

This was on my radar for a long time as a real spiritual successor to those original Fallout games but I kept waiting for a level of polish that I guess it was never going to achieve. Looking at the finished thing on Steam it still looks fairly rough and reading that the difficulty is even sharper than a game from 1998 doesn’t seem all that inviting. Having to play for 5-7 hours just to learn how to spec your class the right way and start all over again is a time commitment I’m no longer at liberty to make. I’m still curious because the isometric look and combat system really brings me back to those wonderful days back in 1997-98 when I was so in love with Fallout and I would play it over and over again trying only speech builds or power fist only playthroughs. Those wonderful days where your only worries was school and then the rest of the time you could pour into gaming.

I’m very excited for this to be a spiritual successor to Encyclopedia Bombastica. Give me that sweet, sweet edited content Danny. I take it this video will just cover Jeff right? Or is this a compilation of several games?

@janekerrhv: I couldn’t watch UPF yesterday on my tablet on either Chrome or Edge but it worked using “Bomb Cyclone” app on iOS. So I guess if you’re on an iPad you can try downloading that app as a solution.

At the start I had a real fun time with Destiny and some online pals doing raids and such. As time went on those guys became a lot more hardcore at it than I was and I ended up slogging my way through hard mode raids and strikes on multiple characters just to keep up with the group before finally quitting when the first expansion came out. The pace became so much for me that when I finally did stop (they all kept going) I felt actual, psychological withdrawal for a few weeks whenever I turned my PS4 on thinking “I should be out there…I should be helping the group” even though I had long since stopped enjoying the game.

As I wrote in the other video, after all this time of this being basically a known quantity I was hoping they would show more. This would have worked really well as a quick "one more thing" at the end of a big E3 press conference. As a thing that I think a lot of people were anxiously waiting for, falls a little flat. That said I'm curious to see it in action. In my mind those games looked really great when they released and still hold up.. but I haven't touched one in 12 years so I'm sure it's a rose tinted glasses situation.

I guess the most depressing thing about this is that at this point it's not surprising. I love games and I sure do enjoying playing them, but the industry behind them is just this vortex of abuse. Worst of all we have been hearing quiet grumblings of these situations a long time ago, and then as the years went on more open articles were written, and then followed very blatant articles detailing harassments, mistreatment and lack of regulatory action.. and yet nothing changes.

@brian_: People are saying that they aren’t enjoying the content and the output. Plenty of level headed criticism compared to a few folks that will inevitably take it too far. Not that I think these threads do any good other than letting some vocalize internal frustrations or disappointments. No one knows what they do behind the scenes. People can only speculate and criticize what they see and sometimes that may include speculating a lack of effort.

@magnetphonics: this is the most grounded one of these threads the site has ever had. If what people are saying here is completely unreasonable then the site really is in trouble.
