In Hell, it's published by EA.  In Heaven, it's published by... well, there aren't any really *good* publishers out there, right?
Who uses forum signatures anymore?

You're like running a decade behind the times. Riccitiello-era EA is pretty good. In hell it's published by Activision.

Ubisoft's the one you want to ***** about re: DRM.

 
Yeah, EA has really pulled an about-face when it comes to DRM on games.

[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Obsidian's QA is nowhere near as bad as its rep.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

I don't know, the Radscorpions tilted crazily into the ground seem to agree with this.

Mind you, I'm pretty sure there are people with far worse QA out there. Matrix Games comes to mind.

It's actually mostly because of the ****ty engine the game runs on, but yeah more could have been done

It's odd though, I haven't been getting any actual bugs besides maybe one ant through the ground and one bugged quest in over 60 hours of gameplay and only maybe 2 crashes. That's far better than post patches FO3.

Bioware dialouge is excellent.

Obsidian stories? Why exactly are they so fabolous? Meh.


Hmm...does "creating a setting" fall under "story" or is it a separate category?

Also, cutscenes in heaven are created by BLUR.

The dialog is written by Bioware in the Heaven version and in the Hell version by... Bioware?

Have you never played the second KotOR game?  The one that questioned all of the established facts about the Sith, Jedi, and the Force?  The storyline is excellent, and the game would have been far better if LucasArts, the publisher and damn them, hadn't forced it to be released early for the Christmas market with poor QA and lots of cut content.

The whole joke is that Bioware dialogue is both excellent and terrible.

Planescape Torment and Fallout 1/2 ring any bells?

I've never actually been a big fan of Blur. They seem to have a cookie-cutter formula and their rendering is pretty uncanny.

Before Trashman asks what Obsidian has anything to do with Fallout 1 and 2, I'd like to mention how most Black Isle team members moved on to Obsidian.

And, what, that never happened in FO3?

If we're comparing bugs, I certainly crashed more in 3 than NV. And I was playing the fully patched, GotY edition.

I shot a Deathclaw once with the Blackhawk and it subsequently launched heavenward.  The best was it was the first shot in a VATS combo so my character tracked and fired during it's ascent like a radar guided AAA mount.

Actually, it didn't. Nor did I get stuck inside terrain. Nor did the climax of the second mission sequence you encounter spawn enemies that could not be interacted with and require a restart. Comparing the console versions NV was definitely shipped with more problems.

I'd actually feel better if NV just outright crashed like FO3 did a few times instead of playing on in a seriously glitched fashion.

I'm not hating on Obsidian, I've played games from companies that suck far worse; UFO Extraterrestrials in the version Matrix Games was bandying about wasn't even properly spellchecked and SP:WaW has a persistent bug that renders artillery and airstrikes unusable. I just think their reputation is deserved. :P
