I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

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)

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

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 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)

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!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 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.

@  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.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

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!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

Huh. There's a neat name for Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megs.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

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?

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

First half hour of the first PC beta test period!

 

I can't log in at all. But it is improving over the first few minutes where in the launcher itself was crashing. I've managed to get it to tell me it needs to download, followed by telling me I'm good to go. At least it's not telling me my login credentials are no longer valid.

 

The launcher now seems to be waffling between "you need to download!" and "you're done!".

 

Now it's trying to download the game... again.

 

Frankly, this is still a par beta experience for me.

Alright folks!

 

Word from bethesda is: the timer in the launcher is WRONG! The beta is for 2 hours tonight, starting in 1 hour and 14 minutes from the time I posted this! Try again then, and best of luck to you.

Okay, so bethesda KNOWS there's an issue with the PC preload and the launcher. "Just let the download finish" is their suggestion.

 

Very few people will be playing tonight. If I have to sit through the download AGAIN: I might just be in time for the november 1st play period.

So far my main issue is that V.A.T.S. really wants to target other players, even ones I'm teamed with at the time, when there's a feral ghoul charging through the brush at me and Scorched coming out of the woodwork.

The launcher has a note that because of the "delete your game" bug, they've increased the hours on the nov 1st test session. I might even be redownloaded in time to join: provided I don't have pull ANOTHER 50 gig down.

I don't understand this.  Like Fallout 4 dropped like 3 years ago.  And then this thing came out of nowhere.  And it's an incredible mess of an engine but at the heart, it's Fallout 4's engine.  So anyone who wants to hug with it, already knows how to.  Because Bethesda didn't do any QA.

 

Ironbite-one wonders how you fix that in a week.

Which was just skyrims engine with the "destroy it with lazers!" toggle activated. Which was just oblivion's engine after removing all the potatoes. Which was just morrowind's engine after the sanded down all the jaggies. Which was just dagerfall's engine after someone's jewish mother said "Eat, eat! You're looking thin!".

Amateur hour or not, the two hours I played were MAD fun. Slowly working out the controls (I use the xbox controller. HA!) and they managed to sandwich some solid functionality in there. Met some dudes, ran around and killed a bunch. The respawn rate on enemies currently seems high to me, but none of what we've run into so far has been overly threatening unless in large numbers. We setup our first camp, and I logged. Other things to do. My only complaint so far was that about an hour into the play session (relative to me, not the beta session.) the server had a hiccup, kicked everyone back to main, and then the VOIP option didn't work.

 

I currently don't know how to go about finding folks whom are NOT directly in front of you, but my beth account name is Wonko486, so if any are in, look me up. Or leave your name here and folks can add to their mutual friends lists. I'm already well on my way towards becoming the wastelands greatest chef!
