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.

Woot! Beast wars!

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

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

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)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

Did they have working television sets in Fallout 3? Is that a new thing?

Yup, but it was largely under played. It was meant to resemble that time when the radio was king, and the television was just starting to be used. The TV took a surprisingly long time (all things considered.) to reach saturation. It was a long, slow, almost painful change in medium.

 

And I honestly don't care if it was made using the same engine as new vegas. The game looks AWESOME, and I cannot wait to play it. Course, massively high end graphics have never really been a big priority for me. Hell, I would take PS2 level graphics if it meant huge open worlds and little to no loading times.

I know its not the same... but I hope they kept the "puppies!" perk.

 

So... I was thinking on  it when I jumped back on my game of new vegas. The only thing I care about right now, literally the only thing: Am I going to have to buy a new microsoft PC controller to play this game, or will my old one do?

I know, War never changes, but Fallout should, really.  

Seeing this trailer left me with one impression - "How is this any different from F3/New Vegas?" (For that matter, why wasn't New Vegas F4?) Same graphic style, frankly to me the graphics seem the same too, from what we saw, same third/first person shooter gameplay with some RPG elements.

 

And the trailer is the tired old "slow pull back from the TV screen intercut with old news reports" thing again. After 3+2 games, it has gotten a bit repetitive. But I guess, this is Bethesda, maker of the Never-Elderscolling Saga, so why change what worked in the past.

 

Wake me up when they go back to the old action-points turn based system. :(

I meant specifically in-game. Computer monitors were a big part of them, but I don't remember any functioning TVs.

What I'm basically getting at is; are going to get some fake video game TV shows? Because I love those.

Oh, far as I know: none of the TV's in the game ever worked, except the ones in the intros. Dunno bout future fallouts, but radio seems to be the way they go.

TVs might work, but as there is no broadcast... why bother with them? I think the Enclave had a radio broadcast in F2, but that's all.

You have to be quick to find him before he is kicked to death, I guess. :) (btw, ever played Arcanum? Dogmeat is kinda-sorta in that game too, but being harassed by an angry gnome this time)

I'm imagining a mixture of propaganda from whatever organisations might be in control, and some public access-style nonsense from random people that found some working equipment. Also some pre-war cartoons maybe.

The flashback parts (since it is said the trailer is made in game) gives me the hope you can actually play in pre-nuke times.

does the protagonist TALK this time? he talked to the dog. i hope the character talks this time. i hate mute characters, especially in the video game generation we are in. no reason for characters not to talk other than they just dont want to do it

 

and yay! more color! i understand why it looked so bleak and drap in 3, but it kinda made playing the game depressing...

I hope not, or that it's an option that can be toggled. It makes no sense in a game like Fallout, where the player chooses dialog from a few responses on the screen... why would I want to sit there listening to the dialog I just read two seconds ago before selecting my response?

Personally, when a create-a-character has a voice I feel a lot more limited when making them. They have to fit the voice or else it feels weird.

Not that I don't enjoy many games where that is the case, but I like both philosophies existing.

Look pretty awesome!  I mean, you know, for a few minutes of non-gameplay footage.

 

Makes me want to go back and replay 3 and NV.

 

I never got the hang of the old ones, though.  Hell, I didn't even make it out of the vault cave in the first one.
