Did Cyberpunk 2077 legitimately become a good game, or did an influx of tourists who've hardly played games and thus wouldn't know a good one from a trite one just buy it up in droves because they liked a crappy Shitflix cartoon based on it?

It was a simple binary question, dudes, and you couldn't answer it. Oh wait, my mistake, you don't believe in binary. Aside from things being binary and non-binary, that is.

It's been over a decade and a half, and that's still the most relevant they've ever been. Women's basketball players are only ever going to be associated with that comment, all because the media had to raise a shit-kicking fit over it.

Subtle in comparison to the usual slop produced.

The thing is, I'm seeing praise for the show and I don't understand it so I'm wondering if those giving praise are used to wading through outhouse troughs and view this as a breath of fresh air? Are my expectations too high? Is this a me problem?

What you're seeing is a celebration of mediocrity. People are so starved for quality that they'll sing high praises for anything that isn't blatant woke propaganda (even if it's subtle propaganda). And normies will eat anything up.

If it's any consolation, it was never going to be good. Not every movie needs to be turned into a goddamn trilogy or franchise. Especially zombie movies. And this is coming from someone who liked 28 Days Later.

They might as well BE humans, considering they're all talking and acting like those stupid cringy, socially-awkward characters who stutter, stammer, quip, and overexplain their way uncomfortably through every fucking situation, and which is so in vogue with Hollywood right now.

Sure, like Emil actually KNEW what happened in the Fallout 1 intro. Like he ever actually watched it, or anything related to the original games.

Trying to insert his personal OC into the grander mythos is on point, though.

Will Marvel and DC shrink into irrelevancy, forcing the companies and/or IPs to be sold off or shelved indefinitely, allowing the western comic book market to finally die or open a vacuum for competitors to step up where they failed? Or will they continue to chug along, producing slop that no one wants or buys, as more people are laid off while the DEI agents remain and CEOs reap record profits from ESG funds?

I really wish things would just FUCKING DIE already.

They don't even know why males and females even exist in nature, and some may not even be aware of the genital differences between them.

The Fallout show sounds like the recent Dungeons and Dragons movie. Everyone was expecting blatant woke propaganda made purely to generate ESG Funbux. So when it came out and revealed itself to "only" be subtle woke propaganda (that still generates ESG Funbux and shits on the source material), they were pleasantly surprised. We're so used to being fed shit now that we celebrate mediocrity that would have been spat on at least a decade ago.

Sounds like a modern-day revamp of an old Conan the Barbarian quote: “Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.”

Or they're just doing damage control. They realize they went in too hot, so now they're dialing back. They're going to boil the frog properly now, erasing New Vegas from the canon more gradually. That, or they'll use more canon-friendly ways to render it completely pointless to the timeline. Like saying the Tunnelers went in and killed everyone in the Mojave or something.

The fact they are bringing back the Enclave for 4 just makes me think the writing staff at Bethesda aren't that creative at all and they're just rehashing old plots again and again than try some other direction or a new take on an old fraction.

They aren't creative when it comes to Fallout. They never were. That was evident from the start with Fallout 3, which was ultimately just a pastiche of the first two games. Bethesda didn't have the imagination to bring anything substantially new to the universe, or they felt the need to recycle the most iconic parts of it to justify their purchase of the IP. Hence why we keep on seeing the Brotherhood, Enclave, and Super Mutants no matter how little sense it makes.

Honestly, they could have and should have just made an all-new similar faction to serve the purpose they did in FO3. The Brotherhood of Steel as it was in the original games consisted of the descendants of soldiers deployed to the Mariposa Military Base to oversee West Tek's research on FEV before they took refuge in the Lost Hills bunker. There are plenty of other secure places in the US where military personnel and/or tech obsessives could have been stationed, especially in proximity of the DC region, which could easily have been one of the most militarized places in the world. Heck, the FO3 Brotherhood equivalent could easily have formed from the people overseeing the Liberty Prime project! We didn't need a chunk of the Brotherhood to have hiked all the way from one coast to the other for that purpose.

Fallout 3 was a mistake. Rather than make make up new factions entirely, Bethesda just reused what was in the originals, like the Brotherhood, Enclave, and Super Mutants, inexplicably slapped them on the other side of the country, and made them bigger and more prominent than ever for no other reason than because they were "iconic." Now they're expected to be in every Fallout-related product no matter how little sense it makes (and no matter how many opportunities the games give us to wipe them out).

"First black samurai." Cute. They're implying that there were others. He wasn't even one himself.

Better hope those big massive hooks don't get caught on anything that could easily trip her. And Lord help her if they break down while she's in the middle of the wilderness, which they most definitely will when she's traveling extensively through wet and muddy ground, jagged rocks, water, snow, and all other sorts of terrain they were not built for.

Not only that, but black people were running around everywhere in Japan! They were all Samurai! Where's the black representation in Japanese media?!

What's especially retarded is that even if we accept the highly questionable story of Yasuke as true (and I emphasize story, singular, because it's the only thing we hear about this guy) is that Nobunaga found his dark skin so unusual that he had him bathed just to make sure it was real. Which emphasizes how utterly nonexistent Africans were in Japan.

Indeed. Which is why I'm more than a little concerned about the hateful comments spewed towards my own race from every platform in the media, on every college campus, every school K-12, hundreds of government bodies, and multiple international organizations.
