We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 06:16 PM)

I transform in six steps from human to human sitting on my ass at the computer and back again!

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

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.

.....*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.
