Do we know that for sure? I've been hoping a better creative team gets a shot at playing with the improved game mechanics of Fallout 4.

From everything I've heard, it's 99.9% for sure. The bullshit they pulled with Metacritics score for NV and Obsidian actually talking out about it (one F'N point, fuck you, it's in the contract, you get no cake). And from  indications that they are going towards Elder Scrolls Online route with Fallout (ESO is a model that works for them with a safe formula... more reasons for me to never touch it).

Sorry, but I have no idea what you're talking about here. Got a link?

Thanks!

Do companies often tie contracts to Metacritic scores? That sounds crazy to me.

Not only that, they hire consultants to tell them what their scores would be and how to get a better score. It's basically equivalent to Oscar-baiting.

What was shitty about the NV Obsidian situation was that the score was within a month of the game release. You're talking about Bethaesda who's notorious for their buggy release builds, hence it was bullshit and deck was  stacked against them.

Seriously, this was tailored made for STEM education. Crazy potential market value.

I'd think a better analogy would be tying a director's compensation to the movie's Tomatometer score. Which I can't imagine actually happening, but then, I don't really know anything about how Hollywood operates.

i don't really see an issue where you hire somebody for $xx and then if they do a really good job they get a bonus of $yy. providing that all of this is in the contract, where is the problem?

A specific belief that the policy created a situation where there won't be a proper follow-up to New Vegas, a game who's legacy and popularity outpaced initial critical reaction.

Using websites which have been likened to the collective farting of thousand assholes to determine whether they did a really good job or not is the problem.

Anyone  played Burly Men at Sea? 

Play it with a friend on Share Play on PS4, we laughed so much at what the hell was or was not happening.

 

I apologise for bumping such an old thread but i didn't know where else to ask, does anybody have any information on the upcoming Switch consoles that are being released?

I want to buy a Switch but if the new model comes out anytime soon I'd rather wait. I can't wait to play Pokemon really.
