COUNTRY ROADS!  TAKE ME HOME!  TO THE PLACE!  I BELONG!

Ironbite-speculated to be Fallout Online in the same vein as Elder Scrolls Online.

Thanks.  Couldn't work out why it wouldn't work.

Remove the "s" from https. ...No idea why it must be done but for some reason this forum does not allow to embed a youtube link unless you do so.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Seriously, fuck Games for Windows Live. There is no good reason whatsoever I should be subjected to that bullshit just to play a ten year old game.

So... The next Fallout game is a bit of a mystery but fandom is reacting the way it always does. Grognards cry that the game will be horrible (despite knowing nothing about it) and others are trying to speculate what kind of game will it be.

So far I've seen a lot of people saying that it'll be multiplayer game. Which could be nice sense Fallout: tactics multiplayer is dead and I see potential in a multiplayer set in the Fallout universe. ...Could be good, could be bad, I'm not going to have a computer that will run it unless I get a job so I won't be buying it in a while anyway so all I can do now is wait anyway.

I'm kinda hoping for something akin to The Elder Scrolls Online for Fallout 76.

Ironbite-but that's just me.

I hope they learned from what went wrong with ESO, though.  If they go that route, they need to take a look at Ultima Online and see why that's so good.

There's good news for Steam users. They're taking a more hands-off approach to content moderation, and will only remove stuff that's illegal and/or blatant trolling.

"good" news. Wanna make nazi propaganda and sell it on steam? Not illegal, so it stays. A game where you gun down gay people for being gay? Not illegal! Maybe, just fucking maybe complete lack of moderation and oversight is a bad thing.

Personally, I hate the idea of banning games for the sake of moralism, so I'm perfectly okay with that aspect of it. That said, the potential flood of asset flips and general shovelware is a tad concerning, in my somewhat humble opinion. Then again, it's been quite a while since they've put any effort whatsoever into quality control, so perhaps this will just be less moralism on Steam's part.

It's really not surprising to me that indie devs seem the Switch eShop as the promised land nowadays since Steam has become such a dumpster fire.

Dude, geeks/nerds/whatever-the-fuck are the biggest pussies on the fucking planet; you should know this, by now.  A woman gets anywhere near whatever sacred cow they like to fuck and hoo-boy, you can hear the idiotic screeching from fucking Pluto.  Female Doctor?  OHMIGODWIMMINNOTDAWKTAR!  Female characters altered to be more energy and less sex appeal?  BUTINEEDSACUM!  A woman so much as breathes on an FPS' voice chat?  LOLTITSORGTFO.  Its the same group of fuckin' retards that shatter their keyboards in a fit of rage if a game's textures are one pixel off standard HD resolution.

They want gaming to become/remain a secluded, insular community of socially inept dipshits spamming /b/tard bullshit across whatever game's chat system they want without reproach or fear of qualification.  They are as worthless as they are predictable.  Let 'em screech in the hallowed confines of GameFAQs, 4chan, and other such shitholes.  Its more funny when games owned and operated by actual people kick them the fuck off for being idiots, anyways.

They do this because they were the guys getting picked on, and now they wanna be the ones to bully or harass people in a place where they can't be reminded they have the physique of a wad of tofu and that they can't do so in person.

Also, not surprised that Lana is raising a stink again over the speech of a bunch of reactionary pukes.
