Seeing as how Scorpion and atoga do not understand the concept of boycoting a forum, perhaps this requires a vote...

Well, I'm the clueless n00b also known as McArrowni who posted there last night. I am now joining with the boycott.

Sorry for posting relatively constructive stuff there... from their answers (read: generaly vague evasions) and thread deletion in general, they didn't deserve it. Anyways, I won't do it again.

Well, looks like they have offered me an answer after all. I'm still boycotting them, well, because I never should have broken the boycott in the first place. Let them come here for feedback I guess.

Mostly, the guy who's "really, really not a member of the team and fell on the site by accident before it was made public, and acts just like a member of the team and boasts more positiveness towards the team than D&D's positive energy plane" just freaks me out.

Not that I'd expect GCgames to be anything less than honest, of course. *cough* *cough* yeah... right *cough*

Thanks for the support Grognor. It's nice to see that even a newcomer can see right through GCG's tricks. If their game development skills are anywhere near as bad as their deception skills. Than it's far, far worst than we thought.

I hope you realize that GCG would prefer it if DAC people don't post at their forum. This boycott is unintentionally doing their bidding.

If this community doesn't post there, than nobody will. So far since the boycott only two (supposedly) non GCG employees have posted, and one of them has now joined our cause. We supported this project at the beginning. Than they erased the whole forum!? We gave them a second chance and they decided to move to their own forum!? We followed them there, and might I say that there was very little spamming and trolling going on. Even the artists had started to come around join in some very productive conversations. AND THE FUCKTARDS AT GCG DELETED ALL THE PROGRESS!!!

If GCG or anyone working for them would like to talk to the fans they want to sell to. I'm afraid that they will need to come and appeal to the fans. NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!

Considering that people have been nicer, to which SpoQn deleted, you're most likely to have it remain here. Whether GC or any other cockmunch working for him will pay attention to it - GOOD FUCKING LUCK!

I only got them to listen when I had to put the feedback bluntly enough for them, so they couldn't ignore it or pretend the forum was just "being routinely wiped". And then it only got a handful of the idiots to reply, when the "nice" feedback was COMPLETELY IGNORED PREVIOUSLY.

Now back to niceness. I find it amusing that folks still want people to be all cuddly with daisey chains and shit like that for fraudulent shit salesmen. Back when Chuck did the same thing - the nice critiques were ignored while the more vocal ones were spot-on, irrefutable, and IMPOSSIBLE TO IGNORE. GC, if you hadn't noticed, hasn't been honest, forthright, or appropriate, in their development of this title, EVER. Neither was Chuck, which is why GC's compared to him constantly, and only the overpaid 'tards at GC seem to think it's a compliment.

So the developers went to their own reality, deleted the merely mildly disfavorable, and sucked themselves off until the blunt truth put into their face was impossible to ignore. Kind of like how GluttonCreeper ran off in piss trails, Chuck and Co also locked their forum.

The same with FOT, except they understood that when the fans were getting irate, it was due to the feedback being ignored previously. Such as what happened here.

This concludes your daily lesson of the game industry and the Fallout franchise in particular.

...You are so right that I only read four lines before sadly nodding, damnit, why couldn't they let Fallout lay dead?

Also, reminds me of the quarter sized jet engine and a freinds comments about how that will be suppressed and destroyed just like those 120 Mph carberator(yes I know I have crap grammer and spelling) innovations we have on the Patent listing, capitalism sucks ass.

I'm guessing that their logic was something along the lines of "Well, it's already being gangraped into necrophilia by Bethesda, as we liked Chuck's work, then let's make some MONAY!!!!!"

I imagine you know the scope of these that would make the common consumer cry, because life *would* be much better at this point, but a lot of these innovations are due to greed.

There's a lot more, including feasable electric cars, that proves the earlier patents and investments were nothing more than a scam. Modern engineers are able to shoot many of the common myths out of the water, without as much in R&D costs. GM and others spent BILLIONS and didn't come up with shit except for CEO and board bonuses. Mistubishi spent a few million and came up with better.

Kind of like the airlines needing the government to bail them out at taxpayer expense or they would have to fire employees. Once it went through, the execs gave themselves bonuses on being able to fool the govt, and then fired the people anyways. This happens quite frequently.

Oil barons, including our Presidunce, also do this shit all the time.

Fraud is fraud no matter where it happens, and as an honest patriot, this isn't what I had in mind when I fought for my country and allies. (Neither is the whole Middle East thing at present, but that's another discussion and can of worms.) People put their lives on the line to defend...some asswipe being morally dishonest at the benefit of personal wealth.

Why are you lying about calling it dual-classless?(backgrounds do not define your skills in any way(which you should never do in a Fallout game regardless), backgrounds give a small boost to skills and stats at the cost of a slightly larger penalty


I mean what the hell, first you delete posts, refuse to take free cluepons, think that being compared to Chuck is a compliment, ignore the free stuff S.T. Toxic sent you, say you read The Vault, realeased that *$%^ little batch of samples, delete the threads when someone "crosses the line" by calling you an idiotic, greenstamping, moron who has no idea what Fallout looks like, lie about playing Fallout even when its clear you havent(to any depth), lie about it being in a 50's pulp comic style, then delete the posts, use a fake excuse to do that, throw a hissy-fit when you get your mod powers stripped, make a *$%^ forum with a plant on it who just "stumbled upon the forum three days before it was made public" delete all the posts in the "art" thread when everything was going swimmingly, made another *$%^ WoW inspired cover art where the only thing done well was the background, Delete more posts, hijack accounts in order to have S.T. Toxic say that he approves your project, oh and what else?
