@  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)

@  -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)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

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?

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

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.
