i didnt. not until '83 anyway :thumbsup

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 01:00 AM)

Yeah, that was a hard one to take. So many nerds from '77 on must've grown up having a crush on her

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:34 AM)

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:32 AM)

They always save the saddest deaths for last in the "in memoriam" sequence.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:30 AM)

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

I remember him from the old days on Breaker High airing on YTV

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Also, Ryan Gosling. Ugh, go #### yourself Ryan Gosling, with your perfect bone structure

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:26 AM)

Since there's way more nominees than winners in every category that's not exactly unusual.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:25 AM)

Even then, I think it lost more nominations than it won.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:24 AM)

I think the reason La La Land won so many awards is because it was basically Hollywood stroking its own ego

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Kinda glad. I like Emma Stone, but for whatever reason I can't stand that movie. I'm surprised it didn't win though, as it was typical Oscar bait

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

This is just goddamn surreal.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

Holy shit. It had the second-most nominations of any movie, and La La Land just lost Best Picture.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:11 AM)

"Look where I've been, I make everything happen! Look at that mean Mini Maui just tikkity tappin'! Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HEY!"

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Yeah, same. "You're Welcome" is honestly the best song in the movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:06 AM)

I liked the Moana song, though personally I enjoyed You're Welcome a little bit more because of the humor.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

Ah, well. As much as him not getting an Oscar hurts, Lin-Manuel has a shitload of awards already, so missing out on one isn't too bad. The guy managed to hit the jackpot with the Tonys for Hamilton and win a Grammy for it and get an Emmy... Somewhere. Don't know where he got the Emmy.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:02 AM)

@NVK: I realize that, but I still don't like that a terrible Zak Snyder film managed to even get an award.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Look, I can understand The Force Awakens not getting a single award. Hell, I can even understand why Transformers lost to The Golden Compass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

But Moana and Suicide Squad weren't nominated for the same things.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 11:47 PM)

We officially live in a world where a film involving Zak Snyder is apparently more deserving of an award than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 February 2017 - 10:58 PM)

I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

@  Echowarrior : (26 February 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Our Hydra is better than Marvel's Hydra. Just saying.

I got my MP Primal pretty quickly, but I haven't sent the payment confirmation on my Cheetor yet

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 05:32 PM)

he's been out what, 3 days? Most shipping methods aren't THAT fast...

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 04:52 PM)

@  Confuzor : (26 February 2017 - 03:11 PM)

@  Noideaforaname : (26 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

I remember watching Doug all the time as a kid, but I watch it now and I don't at all see the appeal. *shrug* On the plus side, it added the word "nematode" to my vocabulary.

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

You digdug?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:39 AM)

@PlutoniumBoss *Pinwheel fistbump*

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

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.

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.

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.

I always kind of thought the plight of humanity and the need to retain the essence of humanity was one of the central themes to Fallout games?

 

With Ghouls and Super Mutants representing the harmful effects of war on mankind.

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.
