*walks out on stage* Umm, I don't know how to tell everyone this, but Conway Twitty's been dead for nearly 30 years, now. So...*dances awkwardly as distraction*

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 10:47 AM)

uh oh we need a distraction, ladies and gentlemen Conway Twitty.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 January 2021 - 10:20 AM)

*screaming internally*

@  -LittleAutob... : (21 January 2021 - 09:46 AM)

Everything is f i n e

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 January 2021 - 08:30 AM)

Everything's okay until it isn't. That's life.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 January 2021 - 08:12 AM)

Oh my god... I forgot entirely about yellowstone.

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2021 - 06:01 PM)

That's not true. An adult man is in control of the White House now.

@  repowers : (19 January 2021 - 03:18 PM)

Everything's out of control.

@  -LittleAutob... : (19 January 2021 - 09:51 AM)

*cough* w h a t?

@  Donocropolis : (19 January 2021 - 09:48 AM)

Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

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.

Picked up a bounty somehow, and was killed for it while I was scavenging for aluminum. I just wanted to make a new gunsight...

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.

Everything was going great, I got the marsupial mutation and was enjoying my mad hops. Then I needed to pop a radaway, the first one since getting mutated. My hops, they are gone.

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...
