You know it's sad, when people cheer that a well known and once respected publisher/dev team, are adding something as basic as human NPC's to a nearly year old game, that people were expecting since day 1.

There was a huge elephant in the room during that part of the conference. Actually, I'm skeptical about some of the fan reactions, as some of the people seemed to be super hyped for this, and I am curious if Bethesda paid them off. How could they pretend like they didn't royally screw up and talk about the game as if things have been smooth sailing since launch. I played probably close to 100 hours of the game, and did as much content as I could solo, and it's buggy as hell. It was decent, but it wasn't up to their standards. How can a company make so many greedy decisions, get called out on them, and continue to do the same crap again and again. Sorry ending rant.

NPCs? So they are actually going to finish the game. :P
