So an online game where friendly fire is banned, still has friendly fire enabled?Reply

There's a difference between accidentally killing a teammate in the chaos, and intentionally shooting one.

Does this version of Fallout 3 work straight of the bat or does it need the patch to stop it crashing on modern systems?

Reading the gog.com forums, it would seem the ini edits normally needed (to do with multi-threading) are now done automatically on install.

If it's meant to be a faithful remaster (which I'm pretty sure it's not?) then it looks really solid. But if it's trying to 'bring back sonic', then I think the 2d platform genre is the wrong way to go about it.

Menhir, that's like a big stone isn't it? If I remember Asterix right.

I'm probably blind and biased by memory, but WinXP was the peak where controlling my computer was a bit like molding clay, the user had all the control to make something beautiful or make a mess.
Win10 feels like captaining a fairly autonomous ship where most of the crew are lying to me. Nothing really goes wrong, but I don't feel like I'm at all in control.Reply

This is a response to rising sales taxes on _all_ digital distributors, right? It shouldn't impact Steam any more than it impacts all other digital distributors in those jurisdictions. Essentially, should still be status quo as far as market dominance goes.

Probably, though there's always the element of the consumer saying 'sure, I live in this low-tax region'.

I recall with 3ds, it allowed me to pick from a list of regions with the tax rate stated beside each XD

Steam is a bit trickier to dupe than that I believe.

Makes sense.
This will likely hurt steam more than anyone as they shouldn't be making anything off the increased prices, while still pushing customers towards other options (3rd party key-traders, retail, going without).Reply

I think a lot of the problems people ran into first time through, involved how conflicting the junk/crafting system is with the exploration aspect.

If they cannot get over the hording mentality behind collecting junk, they quickly become over-encumbered and have to return home far more frequently than the previous games where junk was mostly just junk, which absolutely destroys the otherwise quite good flow of the game.

Yeah, I went through that as well. The problem is that the game does a poor job at telling you what's important and what's not. They probably imagined people will focus on building something, mark the materials they need and go on exploring. But what people do is ... carry everything back home, just in case. At which point the inventory system becomes a chore. They could have explained that much better or add a system to work around it (e.g. call a settler from one of your settlement to carry the stuff home while you are free to continue exploring).

Fallout 4 review snippet Is Fallout 4 grindy?
After over 30 hours of playtime and an equal number of levels I realized I had made no actual progress - the constant micromanagement that is the minuteman faction was holding me back from actually playing the game. A new character and I left the minutemen trapped in their little hole and focusing on the main story, finally reached diamond city. a lot more fun was had as I steadily ignored all the junk I had previously obsessively collected, and without it weighing me down (literally) I felt freed to actually explore and make progress without the constant need to return to 'home' near-hourly. The story was finished and I feel rather numb about it all, it had potential but I felt like too much an impotent puppet for it to be really made the most of.
