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.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2019 - 02:55 PM)

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.

@  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)

@  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.

The revelation that 76 really is just repurposed Fallout 4 has tempered my enthusiasm, even though that it is confirmed to be just Fallout 4 means their "below minimum system requirements" can kiss my ass. I can play my modded to high heaven Fallout 4 without issue, 76 won't be either.

 

It's more how the framework has the potential to be gamed. I'm also not a huge fan of seeing the griefers starting to rear their miserable little heads in MATN's coverage.

 

I've gone from cautiously optimistic to Must Buy to now Wait and See.

Alright, given the scale of the world, and how much resources you need (and scarcity of rarer stuff.) it's DEFINITELY more fun with a friend. But still good on it's own. I wish I could get the VOIP to work reliably: it's awfully heroic to charge in and kill a robot with a hatchet to save the live of another dweller, and the silently walking away with is cool too, but I would much rather be polite.

hunh.

 

Some dude in a police cap and gasmask killed me tonight. Granted, I had a bounty on me cause I had apparently... done something. I dunno.

 

Either way: I go by Wonko486. Feel free to look me up in game. I'm usually running around with a dude named Mr. Clean79.

Not part of the Beta but been watching a ton of it via my YouTubers...

 

Anyone else get the feeling the Overseer is going to end up being the main quest's final big bad? Yeah they're putting out a lot that makes her sympathetic, but she graduated with Honors from the Overseer program...a program that openly has a course about cannibalism. And we know Vault-Tec...

 

All I'm saying is I don't think she's as sympathetic as they're trying very hard to make her.

Me and Dave in some small town whose name I am ignorant of. Despite the gasmask, he blew a good tuba. Surprisingly in tune for 25 years exposed to weather.

Long story short: I am loving the photo mode. I cannot wait for this game to actually drop.

I can't wait to have more poses available for photo mode. Every time I try to get a cool picture of one of my franken-guns, the character lowers it before I get the angle of the camera just right.

Gopher (One of my YouTubers) also experienced what happens when your lose connection to the server. The game keeps running, just refuses to allow YOU to do anything. Folks in his stream confirmed it happens on XBOX too. To quote him: "Game, I want my computer back now..."

You'd have figured a "You've been disconnected" screen and quitting to the title menu is an arcane ritual a series like Fallout could master pretty easily.

My wife's really keen on 76, but for myself I think I'm going to wait a bit before I jump on board. Wait and see how the PC scene shapes up before devoting the money - the prevalence of cheats and Bethesda's response to it.

 

It's not like I don't have plenty else on my plate this month. Curse of the Vampire Coast in 5 days, Crusader Kings II: Holy Fury on the 14th, and Let's Go Pickachu/Evee at the end of the month.

Yeah, my connection has dropped repeatedly while playing: you literally just get a pop up saying that the controls have been disabled. I've not tried anything in those period, but now I'm wondering if they mean the controls in the game, or if they've locked input to the computer...
