    Yeah, it's a crying shame the game was hamstrung by microtransactions after it was finished, there's a really polished experience underneath all the poo

    The Kamino and Kashyyyk levels are beautifully crafted in particular

    Bethesda replaced a "free for all, sell your broken shit trough Valve's workshop" with a "select modders will be able to make content, and get paid for it, and we take responsibility for keeping it running, but it's also stuck on our shitty platform."

    so they did listen, they didn't do what much of the community was wailing for, but they did take on-board a significant chunk of the criticism levelled their way and addressed it.

    it's still shit tho.

    also, video.

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    they flat out say that they're bringing them back at a later date, why is this being treated as hot gossip

    Although i have to admit this Jimguy is getting on my nerves as hard as can be. Goes to show that being a whiny shit also has commercial value i guess.
