I mean, it's not all bad. Disney's releasing Speed remastered on 4K

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 08:48 AM)

And now the fridge has died. So far 2021 has been WONDERFUL.

@  Hg Dragon : (01 March 2021 - 08:49 PM)

I'm upset I can't "Like" a shout...

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 February 2021 - 09:39 AM)

The US election? *rimshot*

WHICH 2016 clown panic?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

Never understood the hype for the IT movies, too many floppy zombie chases, They're not in the least unsettling.

@  Maruten : (25 February 2021 - 06:00 PM)

It's really rather shocking watching the Investor Day presentation and seeing how much Hasbro actually owns now.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

This is quite possibly the most miserable i have ever felt.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

i'll be nice and not bypass the cupcake monkey, but COVID can *bleep* itself in the *bleeping* *bleeper* with a *bleeping* cactus.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 02:39 AM)

He only appeared the once in the US comics and got one follow up in the UK comic. He never suffered badass decay like Omega Supreme and the combiners.

@  Rycochet : (19 February 2021 - 05:15 PM)

Trypticon's debut issues in the marvel comic were the absolute best 'To sell a toy' comics of the book.

@  tigerhawk : (19 February 2021 - 03:04 AM)

Then the audience goes "This was a stealth Transformers film wannit!"

@  tigerhawk : (19 February 2021 - 03:03 AM)

Godzilla vs Trypticon, co written by Christina Hobson and Max Borenstein.

@  Bass X0 : (19 February 2021 - 01:36 AM)

I now want G1 Grimlock to transform into Mecha Godzilla.

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2021 - 04:23 PM)

I preferred Rush when Midway made it.

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2021 - 03:13 PM)

The best Rush comes from Canada.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 February 2021 - 02:54 PM)

In *other* wonderful and fantastic news, guess whose Kingdom Cheetor and Paleotrex FINALLY arrived today?

@  Bass X0 : (16 February 2021 - 03:07 PM)

yeah, its a good show. watch as much as you can.

@  tigerhawk : (16 February 2021 - 04:58 AM)

Goodnight Sweethearts turned out to be a gem, I only knew Nicholas Lyndhurst in Only Fools and Horses but never saw this show before.

@  Bass X0 : (15 February 2021 - 04:07 PM)

Then we got Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Dai Atlas, Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Banzai-Tron in Alternity...

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

If you find irradiated plants that means someone dropped a nuke there but the plants didn't get picked and remained there after the nuked zone clears.

Alright, so I'm enjoying the season thing so far. It gives a reason to play at least a little bit every day, and since the challenges are kinda random, it's more enjoyable than games like WoW when you end up getting stuck in an end game daily routine, doing the same basic quests in the same order over and over.

 

I kinda wish they had put some more thought into the challenges implementation though. I don't mind suddenly being told I need to cook some stuff with veg or mushrooms, but it doesn't require variety: I just push out five corn soup (which is ridiculously easy to achieve.) and it's done. Maybe require you make different dishes so you can't just spam it out, and get some use out of the recipes you pick up? It wouldn't take much longer to pull off, and it would still be readily achievable just with picking up the base ingredients. They already kinda pulled it off with some of the weekly challenges: Kill three huge creatures, and actually give you a list to work from.

Okies, I'mma share something with you all to help make the score challenge grind perhaps a bit easier.

 

Often, you have the daily or weekly challenge to "kill X# of legendaries". If you've progressed that far in the world, there's a common farming spot in watoga emergency services, the medical section upstairs near roof access will occasionally spawn a legendary, but I've also noticed that there's a COMMON legendary spawn across the street on the roof of the convention center. Supermutant. So swing up through emergency services, then use power armour to jump off the sign hanging on the left side of the roof (from when you exit the stairwell.) and onto the patio across the street on the convention center. Then up the stairs and sweep the roof.

Welp, I officially hit my peak gameplay tonight. I soloed three scorchbeasts ( a level 50, a level 65 legendary, and a level 80.) in a row.

 

To preface, I managed to get a three star .50 machine gun a while ago. Bloodied, extra limb damage and lower vats costs. I was using a flamethrower at the time as my heavy weapon, so I put it in storage and kinda forgot about it. I wound up getting tired of the flamer (cause it's serious fun but literally breaks five times a day. I couldn't keep enough aluminum in to keep it working.) so I was going to switch back to the plasma gat when I saw it. .50 is pretty cheap so I cranked out some ammo, and rolled.

 

Tonight I got a quest to kill a glowing wendigo from my ally. It was down in the brotherhood forward base just south of the glassed caverns. Fast travelled to the caverns... two scorchbeasts in the air, one of them legendary... but I was actually doing REALLY good damage. They also seems to cooperate pretty well (hovering in place more often, actually hugging landing...) and they both went down pretty easy.

 

I then decide to take a walk. I could see a location I hadn't been to yet, so I went that way. Which also crossed another rift. The level 80 spawned just as I passed. and while he was a pain, the bloodied effect was damned nice and I was able to easily track the increase in damage I was doing. I was an irradiated mess, but I killed it quickly. So yeah, I get why the players like the bloodied effect. Would be even better if I was actually using the heavy weapons perk cards I guess. But I'mma need to rebalance my inventory to make that work.

Yesterday, I managed to find a player vendor selling the .50 cal prime receiver. Today, I was lucky enough to find when I logged on that someone had nuked the prime fissure and killed the queen, so I was able to wander around in the nuke zone largely hazard free to collect the materials I needed to construct it. Took a fair while to find the high radiation fluids I needed, but I got the four of them and enough raw crimson and violet flux to crank it out.

 

But I DID IT... hey, what the hug, I had 2K rounds of ammo for this thing...

 

Oh, it uses ultracite ammo. Okay, what do I need to make it? Pure violet flux... well, how the hell is that different from stable violet flux?

 

*quick internet search*

 

Oh, it's hugging NOT.

 

*back into nuke zone to farm high radiation fluid, which seems to be the rarest of the enemy dropped nuked components.*

 

Oh... shit. I don't have a weapon right now.

 

*FT back to my base, grab my plasma gat, rush back to nuke zone. Get enough HRF to make some ammo, running out of radaway.*

 

I managed to crank out 760 ultracite rounds, and got 360 extra from super duper. Need to run some dailies and events to rebuild my radaway supply, and maybe get the strangler pods to make some radshield for the next time I run into the nuke zone for ammo mats.

 

So yeah, let that be a lesson to you. Bethesda might make a fun game, but apparently didn't invest any into standardization of language.

Alright, so currently my base is in the ash heap. I moved there because it was a uranium node which no one ever takes and I needed it for the weapons I'm currently running. Consequently, I'm killing mole miners more, and getting that damn miners key more.

 

So I was off at some forsaken place to open the locker, and of course, killing mole miners. I had just slaughtered one (literally. Bloody mess is still an awesome perk.) and passed over his inventory real quick. His weapons, miner suit scrap, fuse... I actually had to go back and look again because I went so fast I read "Fur suit scrap" and just got all kinds of weirded out over it.
