I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

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.

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.
