It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:26 PM)

We named the dog "Indiana".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:25 PM)

Happy 30 years to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!

Truly they are the compleat package.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 May 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Made from the metallized ashes of their previous enemies.

@  MEDdMI : (24 May 2019 - 07:40 AM)

They fight you with sparkles.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

War. War never changes. Nor does our wish for there to at long last an announcement for a new Fallout game from Bethesda. There has been waiting and there have been hoaxes, but the dream is still alive. The Official Fallout Facebook page has posted a link to their website with a cryptic countdown message that ticks off in less than 24 hours from now.

 

PA system failure has occured.
Shutdown of the Masterbrain has been authorized and all sensitive materials have been removed for security purposes.
Please attempt re-access. Have a pleasant day
.

 

Whether this is Fallout 4 (or 5, depending on how you count New Vegas) or something else entirely won't be known until tomorrow. Keep your Pipboy tuned in to The Allspark for the latest updates and be sure to discuss in our forums.

There's some reference to "Institute" in the java script code so it's likely that the rumors of it being set at MIT are accurate.

I knew this was coming for awhile, there have been a lot of signs if you pay attention to the right places.

Yeah, but to say "It's been coming for a while" is discounting the fact that there has been rampant speculation, rumors and hoaxes about an announcement for the past 5 years.

 

This is the first official flag raised by Bethesda so until today, nothing was fact.

As far as I'm concerned "Bethesda is making Fallout 4 after Skyrim" was basically fact regardless of hoaxes and what not.

It's as obvious as saying "There will be a Call of Duty game next year".

Noticed that too, huh? Maybe going to bring Tactics into full canon?

 

Regardless, between this and XCOM 2 the writing is on the wall: I need a new Computer.

 

Also - relevance:

 

 

Were it not for Fallout (One, not Three), I'd never know about this wonderful band. The Ink Spots are also one of those bands that can take the exact same beat and craft entirely different songs from them. Seriously, the opening is the same for all their tunes.

 

 

"We Three" ought to be Fallout 4's theme.

Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

Um...not to badger semantics, but Humanity is the only race represented in the Fallout Universe. Unless you want to be a Deathclaw.

 

Ghouls are the unfortunate byproduct of radiation (and, depending on what lore you're using, "Wild" FEV), and Super Mutants are FEV-born...and ought to be a vanishing breed. Regardless, both are still ultimately Human. Heck, The Master's whole reasoning behind the Unity was to unite Humanity and prevent another global apocalypse.

.....*shoots Rust in the forehead*

 

Yeah so anyways I kinda want choices here.  I want to play a Super-Mutant, i want to play a Ghoul.  Hell, if we got to the Commonwealth, we can have androids.  There's some very valid gameplay balances you can have as well that won't make it such a chore.

Only thing I hope about this is that Bethesda took some notes from Obsidian and makes it closer to New Vegas than 3 in regards to story and choices.

Other than that, fairly excited.

Ghouls are more analogs to minorities persecuted in pre-war days, but yeah that's one of the general themes. Though Super Mutants kind of took a different track in Fallout 2/New Vegas, with the efforts to move beyond the Master. Honestly, it'd be neat to see a West Coast Super Mutant turn up in the East to help guide the Eastern batch to something beyond "Find FEV and make more mutants".

I want something that is more of a good blend of both. Both 3 and NV had good and bad elements to them... and generally those elements are polar opposites. 3 had a strong sense of exploration and being able to do anything and go anywhere; NV limits much of this for the first half of the game with you HAVING to follow the same path to New Vegas each time or run into enemies that will kill you before you can blink. which imo lowers replayablility as you're going to get bored of traveling that highway 5 times to get every ending. 3 has a very basic and straight forward story, its not that great, but it's not really 'bad' either. NV focuses everything on its storytelling and character giving a much stronger narrative and focusing what you can to to keep the plot at the forefront until you get to New Vegas.

 

If 4 could blend 3's sense of exploration and NV's storytelling, it could be a really great game.
