Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

@  Rycochet : (13 December 2019 - 11:56 AM)

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Can it raise the dead?

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Havarti, without a doubt.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

Hopefully being set in a more developed area may help with the exploration. Wading through the shattered remnants of civilization is so much better than
desert, desert, desert, cave, desert.

NV isn't quite that bad, but yeah there wasn't a whole lot of interesting places to go, but I'd also prefer less 'follow this path or die.'

I still maintain the reason the Capital Wasteland was the way it was is because it got hit by so many bombs it wasn't until recently that the radiation levels decreased enough to allow safe habitation.

 

It'd also explain the massive amount of Feral Ghouls in the area.

Well that would depend on how you'd define 'recently' as we know that its been habitable for decades, in Megaton the old lady can tell you about its founding, which was when she was a little girl. so that would be at least 50+ years that Megaton existed, meaning the Capitol wastleland had to be habitable for that long; there is also the Republic of Dave, which have gone threw three of four iterations, not an exact time line, but still it sounds like things more or less pass from father to son, which would mean several generations would have to have passed, so it'd have been potentially as long as Megaton. We know Rivet City is also 30-40 years old from Pinkerton's accounts, and the fact that only he really knows how the place began implying all the other original founders are no longer around and enough time for its founding to pass from the memories of its citizens. Also add to that its almost 20 years between project purity being abandoned and the start of the game (player character is 18 or so), meaning that the Capitol wasteland had to have been habitable for long enough for that to be set up so that's about a minimum of 25-30 years. And I still haven't even gotten into the BoS which we've known has been operating for at least a little longer then that.

I mostly assumed the feral ghouls were there as a by product of the super mutants. When you try to make a super mutant, starting from a radiation damaged human: you get a ghoul. As the ghouls are exposed to more radiation (which super mutants are largely immune to.) they become more feral, even if their physical bodies regenerate.

Given the largest concentrations are in the Metro tunnels, it stands to reason the Feral Ghouls are the remnants of the population of the DC area, fleeing to the relative safety of the underground.

I hope they have an engine that's a lot less buggy. Also, a truly playable 3rd person mode so I can finally play a melee character. I can never get into playing melee in a first person game.

Skyrim managed to improve the third person mode but even that is a bit too floaty IMO.

Fallout 2 has you covered.

 

One of the more useful Random Encounters you can get, a potent energy weapon plus some Super Stimpack strength Hyposprays that don't have the drawbacks.

 

EDIT: Huh. Turns out the Phaser was cut content from the initial game. The Restoration Project mod must have brought it back in last time I played.

It did. The restoration mod more than doubles the content in fallout 2. They originally cut ALOT, not just to make development easier, but also to keep the timeline and back story more self consistent. Stuff in fallout 2 which was cut, originally referenced stuff in fallout 1... which was cut. Like the mutant raccoon colony.

There is part of me that would like to see that make a comeback... but then everyone will think they're ripping off GOTG if they did that now...

I think the game looks pretty good, and the graphics will probably improve further until release. :)

 

Also, we got confirmed platforms: PC, PS4 and XONE.

So, we're getting an actual city this time.

 

Also, the Wasteland remains spectacularly beautiful in its own unique way... More so now that we're getting less muted colors.

Well unfortunately it's more often the reverse. The first reveal of a modern game is running off a high end PC, then it gets downgraded to fit on the less-powerful current-gen gaming consoles. So it'll probably look worse.
