    Idk how they managed to make FC3 so compelling and the following so meh.

    Then again I'm really put off by a lot of games lately, I'd rather freaking buy a plane ticket somewhere given the fact that some of these games are already retarded in what they're asking (hey, pay up 49.99 per game and then 26.99 per DLC and then 1-5-10 quid each for skins or other microtransactions shit). Overall, yeah, that translates into a fking plane ticket to somewhere nice where you can (if you really want) pick flowers and shit and/or airsoft for funsies if that's your thing.

    It all really went downhill when EA started charging almost 100 quid per "super deluxe ultra edition" games and then supplementary milking people for 29.99 each couple weeks or so (depending on how hooked up they get players) for shitboxes. Because apparently there's a lot of people who will put their monies into that, so why the hell not.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    This is the first game marketed to the Trump loving fascist-right.

    May it be the last.

    As usual Mack sums up everything accurately.

    Tally's with my experiences so far.

    Obligatory "that guy is an unfunny edgy dick" comment. Because he is.

    And games are perfectly fine ffs, just avoid shit by ubisoft and ea and there are godly amounts of great shit all around.

    1. you want a supressed assault rifle with a scope in your first slot, no but's if's or maybe's on that one, the lethality has been dialed up since FC3 significantly.
    2. you get 4 weapon slots, so point 1. is less annoying than it seems at first glance, you get 3 "main guns" and 1 pistol slot.
    3. there are two types of companions, generic "guns for hire" and actual companions, the latter require a mission completion to unlock. there's quite a selection of weapons in both cases.
    4. the AI is kinda good, they don't reveal you or derp hard, and actually meaningfully contribute to the overall shenanigans, special mention to the "fuck everything, im a fucking bear and i am borderline immortal" bear companion, it's a furry main battle tank basically.
    5. the cult is INCREDIBLY bland, it's a bunch of murder-hobos of all creeds, races and genders with a roughly 70-30 male-female ratio, i was hoping for them to take the opportunity to take the piss out of the fundamentalist Christians you lot have over there and hey just completely passed on that.

    Viking, n.:

    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    From the little ive seen of it:

    The baddies are a callback to Jonestown / the Branch Davidians. Obviously they are going to be all sovereign citizen-y, but they dont appear to be racist / nationalist, just fake religious looneys.

    The protagonist is a federal marshal, so, you know, not exactly the states-right kind of guy youd exepct if you were to pander to the Trumpists. Havent seen any actual characterization from him tho, he seems to be a bland blank slate.

    The friendly NPCs are a caricature of "rural folk"... sometimes 2nd A nuts, doomsday preppers, but not maliciously so. Again, race doesnt seem to factor in at all, and neither does gender.


    I honestly think calling it a pro alt-right game is reaching, maybe some people find the depiction of the rural populace too close to reality for comfort.

    It's more that the game avoiding to try to be offensive to anyone, including the new faggoty right, which is a bit new so a bit jarring. :>

    the player is a Sheriff Deputy and a local, and a complete blank slate, to the extend that the little "woo!" you get when catching a fish was outright surprising.

    also, the non-cultist locals are actually quite sympathetic, there's your broad selection of redneck stereotypes to tick all the boxes, but they're neither dumb nor downright backwards any of em.

    also, dont buy guns in the store unless you really want that specific gun (say the MP5) picking it up from the ground once is enough o unlock it permanently.

    also, there are Fallout 4'ish downsides to the improved AI (and it IS massively improved tbh)

    Ok, next point: is there a way to make the player tank less than 2 times the damage enemy humans do? And to turn down their spawn rates, obviously.

    Play on hard and dont upgrade the health pool perks?

    Also where is all this pro alt right propaganda? everyone is treated with equal ridicule from what I've seen so far - like the garage owner who wants to build a snow wall to keep the socialist hippy's out and eventually make canada 'murica again.

    Really. I was under the impression that the alt-right was furious that the game revolves around a statist killing crazy fundies.

    Theres a bear companion named cheeseburger that has diabeetus. Tells you everything you need to know about the game.

    I still think it looks fun, but the protagonist is shite (compared to FC3).
