Off topic, I bought Fallout: NV today at gamestop after trading a bunch of old games... And while I'm not quite there just yet, my patience is growing extremely thin with the game - it's a brand new release, and while some people online have called this a basic a expansion on Fallout 3 (which I chose to ignore), it has so many issues it's mind boggling that they are charging $60 + tax for it. I've never played a console game that hiccups so much (i.e. you're walking around and it pauses for 1sec to load the scenery around your viewpoint every minute you explore (sprites I think it's called, or whatever)), or you get into an area with 4+ enemies and the game grinds to a halt and can (and has) kicked your PS3/Xbox360 back to the dashboard mid-game is F**king ridiculous...is this seriously what new releases are amounting to now?
I've lost so much faith in game companies to deliver an experience that makes me want to keep playing it's getting sad. With FO:NV, I know that Obsidian took the reigns, but in the end it's no different than EA working on MOH - no matter how much hype and press the game gets, it all seems to be that the more pre-coverage a game/movie/etc gets the 'chitty-er' the actual product is in the end (and thus, leaves the consumer (i.e. me) frustrated that all game companies are going for now is a cash grab releasing a game that would be a laughable/passable beta).
Medal of Honor has the same issues (bugs/lag/broken gameplay); and all that I am saying is, if Little Big Planet 2/COD: BO has the same BS crap associated with their gameplay, I'm out of videogames for a lonnnnnnnnng time. $60+ plus for a game is one thing; but if you continue to add in broken programming/gameplay on a console release, with the addition of "online passes" for full functionality of a game on used purchase, I'm out - I am, and have been, nickel-n-dimed in life enough already, I don't need my stress-reliever/free-time 'hobby' to be a muddled broken POS that only succeeds in making me realize that game companies are now only in it "for the money" and only want to capitalize on the consumers previous experiences with a once successful franchise.
