Fallout 4 .44 suck as it slow as it's not double action and the sound sucks.

Makes me miss FO3 and FONV .44 when playing FO4.

There are a few games out there that adjust the tactics of the enemies on the basis of your own tactics, so that it constantly keeps you on your toes, but they are very much the exception and not the rule. With most games you can keep using the same old tactics over and over and over again ad nauseam and they will still work.

A case in point is Fallout games from 3 onwards. Enemies who melee attack you can be defeated by jumping up onto a place where they cannot reach. They react by standing there for a few moments, before running off to hide in the distance somewhere. You can then hop down off of whatever object you have jumped on to, and that will cause the enemy to come running back to attack you. Hop up onto the object again before they reach you, get some cheap shots in before they run away. Rinse wash repeat until the enemy is dead.

The trail carbine in NV, which was chambered in .44, was nuts. That shit carried me through most of the midgame and Old World Blues. Fuckin' love lever action weapons, man.

On the other hand I literally can't think of any weapon other than the revolver that uses .44 in 4.

I'm sure the whole "Hand drawn animation" gimmick sounded neat when these guys were developing Indivisible. But it apparently means all the cutscenes are basically still images.

I don't like that.

The lever actions in FNV were mega-based. The Traill Carbine is great, but the Brush Gun in .45-70 Gov't is a beast.

If it's not a multimillion dollar money printing machine than it's not worth keeping afloat for massive companies like EA or Activision.

They need a guaranteed return on investment because they need to keep their shareholders happy.

Star Wars by all means should be a money printing machine. If it’s not, it’s because of mismanagement.

Just three games (Battlefront, Battlefront II, Fallen Order) since Disney’s acquisition is ridiculous. I guess you could count freemium mobile games, but do you really want to?

I hope other companies can try their hand at the license. Honestly, why didn’t they give their many studios projects to work on? They own BioWare. Why not have them make KOTOR 3? That’s just one example.

Instead they have devs focus on projects no one wants. Projects that fall flat on their faces and leave EA inexplicably even more unwilling to sink attention into proven games.

Would not be surprised if Bioware gets the chopping block in the next few years.

It was a huge mistake to allow EA to have sole rights for the series, they have completely fucked it. Two dumpster fires of games and one really fricking good game, but overall i dont like the future for star wars games under their belt.

It's also ironic that EA owns Bioware, you know the people who made Kotor, and instead of letting them go wild with the license (Because they've outright said they have tons of ideas for SW games) EA forced them to make Anthem instead.
