    This is worth a watch if you like Fallout. I'm sure there are a few of you here. Apparently the "War. War never changes." line was written during a Simpsons commercial break. The Muse truly does inspire at the oddest times. This can't all be due to a Tyranny DLC can it? Next we will hear they are making their own Fallout with Blackjack and hookers.

    It's funny, because I've often read posts on here saying that one thing Bethesda gets wrong is making Fallout the 50s but in the future, rather than a future loosely based off of 50s futurism, but it's interesting to hear that Leonard Boyarsky also agrees with that.

    Also, Feargus was wrong to come up with Black Isle. Colostomy Food Fight was a much better name.

    There is also this article by Tim Cain and I do not agree with some of the things he lists as mistakes, but he brings up good points for the rest of the stuff. Mostly 1 and 2.

    About this, I still need to watch it. It is 50 minutes long after all.

    I am honestly one to say that canon is typically best with the most hardcore fans of a franchise.

    Developers/directors start to get weird, maybe it gets to their head or something, but they start changing shit which hardcore fans simply all agreed upon, and found fine and dandy.

    It bugs me when a company, or person can say 'oh this franchise is like this', and all of a sudden you have two groups with varying opinions, the drooling tards who go 'hurrr its now like dis!', and the actual fans who go 'hey, that's not right! Why change what was perfectly fine?'

    Wouldn't you cause a time paradox with the dinosaur PETA never existing?

    I guess a lot of people were tired of a fantasy setting at that time. I personally don't like the flavor of magic. I mean how much damage is a fireball expected to do?

    Don't get me started with fantasy.

    So many settings break my suspension of disbelief, when any fuckwit can read a book, and shoot fucking lightning out of his cock.

    It breaks my heart a bit when they said that thought the waterchip timer was a mistake. Still I do understand. I just like how it encourages you to finish all your business in one town before moving to another.

    I think timers are good, and bad, depending on one's preferences.

    Nothing stopping a timer from being an option in the menus, it genuinely adds tension and a feel of consequence with time wasting.
