I enjoyed both AP and KOTOR2.

I think New Vegas was mostly a result of Bethesda's engine. I mean, Fallout 3 was buggy as hell too.

AP was simply rushed by Sega. A real shame too.

I trying to platinum AP, need to play it thought 1 more time.

I wish Alpha Protocol hadn't been rushed out by Sega, it was a stunningly well thought out game with tons of potential... sadly, they'll never get a chance to correct it.

That doesn't excuse Obsidian, their games speak for themselves.

I enjoy New Vegas but it is prone to glitching and freezing. Sadly my save data hit 1MB last night and now the game runs like ass. Which makes me sad as I just bought the .50 Cal Sniper Rifle.

bigtrucknd4817d ago

I will not buy another game with obsidian's name on it.

Failout: New Glitches
Alpha Failcall

Both games were good in their own merit (AP was ok with the multiple story paths, and Fallout had far too many damn bugs) however they should have took the time to either polish the games (delays) or stop trying to hype every game as the second comming!

My biggest piss off about New Vegas - you can't continue once you beat the main story. In 3 after the Broken Steel DLC it was possible but I hate how you gotta do everything before starting the final mission.

Destiny 2 Cheat Maker Asking for New Trial, Claims Bungie Failed to Prove They Copied Source Code

Destiny 2 cheat maker Aimjunkies is seeking a new trial against Bungie claiming the studio never actually checked their cheat's source code.

It amazes me how they don't see what they're doing as completely wrong regardless of source code not being copied.

I'd love to see them brought up on destruction of property charges... for each and every player affected by their cheats.

And the arrogance to just act like they're not doing anything wrong is insane.

Seraphim41m ago(Edited 41m ago)

just because something is wrong doesn't make it illegal. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I agree with the cheat maker, but if what they are doing isn't "illegal" then the courts may have gotten it wrong. Furthermore, if it is not illegal then good old Government needs to implement laws to protect software companies from exploiters such as this. Again, being wrong isn't necessarily illegal and legality is all that matters in a court of law, or at least it used to.

I get what you're saying. There should be laws against that especially I'm spending money in the interest of fair play and the mechanics are being manipulated by an outside source.
