I just don't understand, I had a few problems with Fallout, but, not near to this degree.
The engine seems almost identical, other than a few modifications to the UI. It just doesn't make sense to me.
Hab, I cannot say for sure about this, which is why I tend not to mention it when we talk about this game here. But I think there are pieces of the game that simply weren't finished in time. There are bits of dialogue and certain mechanics that suggest something wasn't finished.
I mean, there's just so much crammed into this game. Not just...not just storywise, but I mean, goddamned wind patterns. Snowstorms. I don't want to provide excuses for Bethesda, but at the same time, it's not hard to see how they could miss so much with regards to QA.
I got sympathy for that.
Same time, it's like Obsidian putting out KotOR 2. They knew that shit wasn't finished when they put it on the shelf and took your got-damn money for it. And they know we're gonna keep buying broken, unfinished shit, because the shit the do manage to finish is so good.
We lower our standards and they meet them. That's how it happens.
