I haven't played any. :: But they do seem to pale in comparison to the FO3 ones.

The thing that's pissing me off the most is that they got the green-light to do the Wheel of Time remake.

Why does this crappy company completely 'eff up all of the series I love? WHY?

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY~?!

sorry, but NWN2 and New Vegas can't be compared to Alpha Protocol.

NWN2 and New Vegas are excellent games

They are, I also enjoyed Alpha Protocol. Sure the way the guy walks is messed up, and the shooting is more RPG than most are used to, but it had a good story and some good voice acting, the bad voice acting was pure lols, I'd quite happily play through it again to get a different ending (the game has like 10 different endings)

Doesn't matter if they're not comparable. It's from the same company. You would think with their track record, they'd change or make some kind of effort to do something about it, but no. They're just so... stagnant. Maybe even getting worse after Dungeon Siege III, lol. It's like they know they're putting something mediocre out there and don't even make an effort to fix it.

People like NWN2 and their other games that was never the argument. That's all fine and dandy and I don't have any issues with that. It's their money. What I have issues with is that no matter how much they try, they'll always just be a mediocre dev that's riding on the success of their game's predecessor. Their games should never warrant the full price of admission when it's released. Then again, most games are like this as well. Wait for some patches if you can.

Maybe it's just that I'm expecting too much from a company that can sit there with the original code and tools that were practically handed to them and put out something better. Everyone deserves at least that much, I think.


Perfect example is The Witcher 2. It's practically better in every single way than the previous game. That's something worth the full-price of admission alone, and that's how sequels should be done.


Has anyone else seen the flowchart for this game? It's pretty damn sickening.



Am I expecting way too much from a multi-billion dollar a year industry? Or is it just me?
