  1. Quite frankly, neither of these guys deserve any award. Remember - these guys are competing for the same award that was given to the likes of Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King. The award which was not even given to Mahatma Gandhi - who literally pioneered the Non-Violent Resistance Movement. Both of these guys are "Jokers" in the name of Global Peace. But if Obama has to be given this prize at all, then Trump should get one too. Obama caused major international wars, and Trump caused Domestic ones. Both Prime Candidates for "Bringing Peace Upon The World" I'm sure.
  2. Of course Phil will not manage each studio personally. But he will closely monitor the results. MS acquisition was not free. They paid $7.5 Billion - which is huge. On top of that, they will also be putting in more money each time a new project comes up. Not to mention, MS will be covering all the staff salaries, licensing costs, and all other continuous expenditures Bethesda incurs from now on. No one gives money just for free. MS Shareholders will kill Phil if he does not even bother to monitor the situation and lets Todd do as he pleases. As I said - a new ES should have come long before now. For a huge franchise as ES - a wait of 2011 till (I assume 2025-26) is simply unacceptable. It was fine when Todd was an independent agent. I don't think it will be fine now. Starfield development started long ago (Before acquisition talk even) - so MS was fine with the delay, but even here they only allowed it till Q1 2023. Fallout 4 should either have had a new DLC or we should have had Fallout 5 announcement (Preferably release date for 2022-23). There was no demand at all for ES Blades - yet they made it a show-piece on E3. Fallout 76 released without any NPCs or even any proper plans on how to run a proper live-service game. I don't think MS will find any of this remotely acceptable. So yes - Todd is free, in the day to day workings and implementation. But I don't think he will be free with ideas (Have to run it through MS first), deadlines (Have to release on time) and hopefully even optimization (Games have to run properly, with hopefully minimal bugs and not depend on modders to fix the game for you.) All of this is just my opinion btw.
  3. Once the acquisition fully completes (It's not finished yet - will only complete in 2023 afaik) - expect some of Bethesda's (Especially BGS's) freedoms to be curtailed. They have taken things far too slowly. A new ES should have come long before now. Fallout 76 should never have happened. ES Blades should have been a side project - and not one announced as the main piece at the Bethesda show-case at E3. A new main-line Fallout should also have happened recently (At least by 2021-2022). I expect some whips are going to be cracked and some discipline be enforced once the acquisition has been fully completed. Todd will be the head - yes. But he will also be responsible for answering some really tough questions if BGS (Not other subsidiaries like Arkane, Machine Games etc.) if they function the way they have up till now.

    Elden Ring

    The funny fact is - I was good enough to bring it down to around 20%-30% health of it's Phase 2 form (and still have health bar almost full) - without the Serpent Hunter. But then my f**ing mana and all potions ran out, so I had to purposely die. It was really annoying and frankly unfair.
  5. Congratz!! Now you can pull in millions per session easily whenever you want (And believe me - you''l want it soon, later equipments, progression and everything costs in millions from what I remember). Anyway enjoy the delicious irony that Ichiban is in the position of Sunder Pichai or Satya Nadella - but still has to be homeless and beg for money on the main game story.
  6. @playstationdude and anyone else interested in JRPGs - Did you try out Eiyuuden Chronicles: Rising? I played it a bit and it seems interesting. Made by the original creators of Suikoden and has the formula of recruiting tons of characters, village building etc. it seems. Side perspective action game like Ori. Have high hopes for this. It's on GamePass now.
  7. Yoshida and the current FF16 Team were not responsible for the original FF14 (The flop). They came on board as crisis managers and started with FF14:A Realm Reborn. They started with a huge success. Not just that - they made the events of the original FF14 a part of the mythic past of the story, which people now feel they should have been a part of, and did not sweep it under the rug and forget about it ( Like almost all devs do with their flops). Their story-telling has been on point, and improving with each expansion - to the point that in the last 2 expansions, Shadowbringers and Endwalker, the story is as good or even better than OG SE's FF6, FF7, FF9, Chrono games etc. or even compares to the best story in any media. Right now Yoshida and his team (Creative Business Unit 13) are the blue eyed boys of the entire SE. If you want a new FF that has the glory of the original games - these guys are who you want to have in development. While SE itself is under stupid management that's going after NFTs and all such stupidity - he's the last line in that company for quality traditional gaming and respecting gamers who love quality.
  8. All countries are playing politics with Covid. AFAIK - we have not gathered much data, and according to us - we don't have the highest death rate. But I don't trust that. At the same time - I also don't trust the WHO, which literally said Covid cannot spread to humans back in 2019. I won't be surprised if this is some way to show India in a bad light after they remained neutral in the Russia-Ukraine war or because they want to deflect attention from their own high rates of infection and/or death. What the truth is? We may never know - because we don't test and report truthfully, and neither does the rest of the World.
  9. Saying is one thing (That too to a 3rd party - not directly to the face of a person, where they can be hurt), acting upon it is another. Aber Heard has literally cut off Johnny Depp's finger, sh*t on his bed, spat at him, and abused him to his face - all documented and in front of witnesses. Depp venting at a 3rd party, but not taking any action and not saying it to her or gaslighting her (which would constitute Emotional abuse) is another thing altogether imo. To me, this is not enough to prove Depp is a bad person (yet). @Krazyniks With regards to driver tests, I agree with you 100%. Driver Tests in India are a joke. Most of the times, you are able to move the vehicle, brake and turn - you pass the test, especially if you com from a driving school. That too, most of the time you drive within the RTO's premises. This is not like abroad - where they actually have you driving in varied terrain, in high traffic etc. to see how competent you actually are, before issuing a license.
  10. It may only be me, and it might be a controversial opinion, but after looking at the quality of FF14's story-telling, I'm far more excited for FF16 than for FF7 Part 2 tbqh. If someone has to tell an excellent story full of twists and turns, politics, and things that will really make you feel for the story - Naoki Yoshida is the best person to do it rather than Tetsuya Nomura.
  11. @Ethan_Hunt You should also do the main mini-game in this title (Ichiban Confections) as soon as it opens up. You complete it's story - it will easily give you millions of $$/Yen as and when you want. You are going to need a lot of cash later down the line. So be sure to do it. It also helps that the game is quite fun and has an interesting story of it's own.
  12. For content creators to come to PCMR (Outside of usual suspects like MOBAs, F2P Games, MMOs, Indies, Roguelikes etc.) - audience has to come to PCMR first (Good PC Gaming HW, not work HW that most have). For that, parts will have to be accessible. Right now - neither are parts accessible, nor can you buy any without feeling like you are getting scammed. IMO Console is literally keeping the high graphics, AAA non-F2P, non-MTX games industry afloat at this point. If it was only left to PC, in this situation, most gamers would have moved on and most gaming companies would have shifted to F2Ps, ads or non-gaming craps like NFTs
