Avalanche has a solid track record. And WB seems to keep it tight with the quality control.
Mad Max was one of the best uses of the license I've ever seen.
edit: I'm retarded, wrong Avalanche, see reply for correction.
Wrong Avalanche bro. Avalanche Software vs Avalanche Studios. Latter is the Mad Max/Just Cause guys.
Avalanche Software is Disney games and Troy Leavitt, the slightly-based dev guy who had cordial conversations with Liana Kerzner. Apparently worked on this game but retired in 2021.
lul my fault for failure to read
too bad, freaking loved mad max and was hoping for the same energy with this one
Retired or was retired? I don't remember exactly but was that the guy who was told to go because he was pro gamergate back in the day and had a youtube channel?
Yes, but no. He wasn't told to go because of this shit, and apparently is still on speaking terms with the dev team. Some idiot probably ran with this idea because...yeah.
I was going off his twitter bio, but that's the same guy and it wouldn't surprise me if those were the circumstances
So how bad is the tranny shit? That's the main thing keeping me in the "lean no" camp.
There is apparently one trans npc in the game.
The character creation doesn't restrict options by gender so the degenerates can choose to make their character trans.
The trannies in real life are boycotting the game though so I think people will be playing as only males or females.
Hopefully there is a random 42% chance of any quest regarding him failing because he suddenly went missing.
You can find him hanging from the pipe in his mother's basement if that happens.
Lmao, really? OK, the game is taking the piss and I love it for that.
Meh, still too many niggers on it.
I wonder if people will ever figure out how to mod the game.
Kotaku hates it, and hates that people like it.
There is a web site devoted to doxxing streamers who live stream while playing it.
The woke pod people are really screaming about this game.
It's all a publicity stunt.
If character creation labelling is as bad as it gets, it's not a "do not play" for me, and the actual character styles available are pretty decent. Combat has looked interesting enough.
The only really stupid thing I have heard about the game so far is they decided to make a MTF transgender character randomly as a bartender in Hogsmeade area.
The combat looks solid and the world exploration seems fun.
I originally was planning on not buying it but I might actually get it.
Bartender? Hell, that just gives me Japanese "mama" vibes. And you KNOW how much of a joke those are.
I had Persona 5 and Gundam Build Divers in mind; I'm sure there's PLENTY of examples though.
I’ve been debating giving it a chance and leaning towards buying it
At least buy it used...that way she doesn't get any money.
Why wouldn't you support JK?
She's a TERF and Imp views the TERFs as a bigger threat than the Church of Girl Dick.
At this stage his anti terf stance only makes sense if he's a Troon himself, along with his hatred for women and childbirth because he can do neither.
only thing that makes sense
If you're pro radical or any type feminist you're a fool
Yes, because hating an ideology of people who want to kill me for being male and put a thin facade of sanity over it means I'm a tranny.
Many of us here hate feminism. The issue isn't that.
1, you attack people for retarded reasons. I remember some guy here saying having kids made him more mature. You attacked him, called his wife names and claimed she was "shitting out kids" or something. The dude was nothing but polite. Even if you think his wife is a whore and his kids are bastards... there was literally no need to act like that and you are not getting ahead in your mission if you make it genuinely unpleasant to have you around. I'm not saying you can't have an opinion. But going on a tirade on a guy like that is a surefire way to make you have zero support. It was a big autism moment.
2, some of your theories are pants on head retarded. I always bring up your Lithuanian female assassin thing, but that's a genuinely hilariously "Z list movie plot" stuff. You also post a lot, therefore over time we have heard a bunch of those bizarre things from you.
3, nobody and nothing is pure enough for you, it's the "everything is sexism, everything is racist" Scamkeesian logic. You hate everything. I still have no clue what you think of for example porn, because you have both said it's evil harlots emotionally abusing innocent men into watching, yet if someone expresses they hate porn because it is degen shit, you also freak out.
4, you can't take a W. Even if people agree with you in something, you blow it either by still going batshit on them, by "not pure enough"ing them or by getting encouraged and going on another "women are genetically unable to have feelings" type of rants.
TERFs are still RFs. Rowling's not actually that radical, but she still believes in the mystical uterus, even if she doesn't know to put it in those words. The only reason 21st century leftists hate her is because she won't pretend that men can obtain divine femininity by crossdressing.
Because she's a feminist...?
1st and 2nd wave feminists aren't too bad.
1st wave: Give us all the rights men have but keep those icky responsibilities off of our backs
2nd wave: Actually, we really don't like the icky responsobilities we do have, either. Let's get rid of them. Pretty please? And don't you dare touch our rights
3rd wave: It's a travesty that men have rights. We should get rid of them. The responsibilities? Yeah, they can keep those
Nah, they were all bad.
I have a simple feminist test. Are they willing to be conscripted.
Overturn Selective Service System v National Coalition for Men!
4th wave : Forget all of that, can we just kill the men?
I grew out of the franchise a long time ago so I couldn't care less if it was good or bad, but I still hope it is. People deserve nice things. Usually.
That's good, prefer having more good games than inferior remakes or releases.
Now it's just a question of seeing if the hate campaign has an impact on sales..
It's marketing. Likely traces back to pro-Rowling trash or even WB itself.
Don’t care. Not buying any game at a $60 price tag except if it’s the best thing since Team Fortress 2.
SJWs hate it because J.K. Rowling.
Is ACG a good gaming channel? I've been homeless since TotalBiscuit stopped.
For RPGs check out Mortismal Gaming. He’s does an excellent job and is thorough to a fault. Only problem is his reviews are usually a little late since the tries to 100% it before giving it a review.
I personally have found his reviews very useful when considering to buy a game.
Yeah, feminists just hate when you give one of their leaders another few hundred million to blow on attacking men's human rights.
wait 6 months for the tranny shit to get put in then look at it and see if its worth your time that's what i've been doing for any AAA game the past few years
You don't have to wait. It's already present.
I wish the ps5 had mods so I could mod out the tranny.
Well the PC version will certainly have mods.
Getting Banned from ModNexus Speedrun any%
If you have a PC, wouldn't it be better to sail the high seas?
Only if Empress can actually crack the game within 10 days. Otherwise you'll be sailing for a few months before you get to play.
At this point I'm probably going to buy it. Looks like it won't be a waste of money on the entertainment front, plus it'll piss off the tranny crowd that much more. Pretty worthwhile overall.
Borderlands 3 took something like 9? months to crack.
I'm I'm glad I waited because that game wasn't worth the money. Basically it was only playable if you turned off all the voice and skipped every cutscene the "stronk empowerd wamen" were so insufferable.
Yeah, absolutely true. I bought that game full price because a friend of mine was excited about it. The story was one of the worst I've ever seen, largely because it felt more like I was a guest at Disney World being escorted by robots pretending that I'm actually involved in the plot.
Not sure what the writers were thinking with that game. Beat the main story once, was baffled, and never touched it again.
I played 2/3 of the way through the pirated version before the story demoralized me so much I just turned it off, couldn't be arsed to learn the patterns of the penn and teller boss.
Then it came out for free on Epic. I gave it another go since I was researching FPS game mechanics. This time playing the Hunter character who has the EZ-mode pet revive ability. Turning off voice and skipping every cutscene.
Its a shame because the shooting mechanics, the mantling and sliding movement is really good. The skills have a huge variety, and the gun and itemization is pretty incredible along with well crafted enemy behaviors.
If there was an "endless" roguelite mode that didn't have a story wouldn't even have minded paying for it.
If I knew how to code, I'd put every effort I had into cracking it. The more piracy, the less chance there is she ever gets to make another game and the more money she won't have to attack men having human rights.
Are her views seriously this extreme? I don't really follow her at all.
Worth noting that I don't think she had anything to do with the making of this game, other than writing the original books of course.
Her views on men are actually extreme. Imps somewhat exaggerating but she definitely hates men
She prominently features in a book calling for amnesty for female murderers, by Justice for Women founder and "friend" Julie Bindel.
So, take what she admits and dial it up to 11, because that's what's actually going on in her sick little head.
Now watch as her sycophantic fangirls here call me a tranny for this.
Well, uh.. Learn to code?
Looks like Skyrim but with wizards... ... ... wait.
I'd rather blow thousands on FIFA packs than spend one cent on this female supremacist, male genocide loving left-wing sycophant's pile of invasive trash on the gaming industry.
And I fucking hate EA.
Really disappointed to see this shit taking pride of place on every storefront right now.
How deep does feminist control go in the industry? We just saw ATVI get slapped with another fine for resisting women's coup.
Edit : Suck Rowling's strap-on, downvoting shill. You too, second downvoter. Work the length with your tongues, you fucking simps.
I'm downvoter #7. Do you have any more fantasy instructions you'd like to share with us?
And for the record, JK Rowling sucks but you also suck. I won't be buying this game.
