*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.

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

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

@  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.

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.

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)

@  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.

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

Meh, more robots and mutants for me to shoot. I am having genuine fun with this: It's fallout, but multiplayer. My friends are standing right there, fighting with me. I love it.

 

The technical side though is pissing me off. I'm not talking about the game engine, I mean the launcher. First the deletion bug, NOW it's not getting a decent rate yet still monopolizing my entire internet connection. I missed the beta session today due to work, but would have missed it anyway because I was completely unable to pull down the 30 gig hugging patch (that's not a patch, and that an entire other game. God damnit bethesda. Seriously?), and I'm probably going to miss the thursday session too since same problem.

 

Oh, and I've already modded it! Ha, chill, I'm not a griefer or nothing, I was perusing the INI files, trying to find a way to turn off godrays, and found the section for pipboy colour. I changed the values to reflect the colour white: and about doubled the intensity of the pipboy flashlight. Upside: my game also shows everyone elses pipboy in the same colour. So when you're in a group, it's brighter at night for you, and easier to find your friends. I suspect it will eventually be an option in game, and more than likely fixed with the last patch.

So it's more of a "give it a bit to work out the bugs and for people to cut off the more pressing warts" thing than a "Behold this inglorious garbage fire we cobbled together" thing?

I'm just going to wait to see how prevalent cheating is in game. The fact you can pretty much edit ini files with impunity and the server doesn't care has me concerned.

I want to play. So very badly. Can't. Still 30 odd hours on the patch download. The hugging launcher is running at about 200 kbps and monopolizing the entire internet connection to do it. It's an known problem and beth ain't done SHIT. I suspect because the majority having the problem aren't in the US.

I think I'll wait a few weeks before grabbing the game, give it a bit of time to work out some more kinks. I can play some Lets Go Eevee in the meantime, I suppose.

(still gonna get the game, bugs be damned. I'm in it for the exploration anyway)

Okay, so... the game bills itself with "all the people you met are actual players" or something to that effect.

 

That means the dev don't think super mutants and scorched are people.

Alright, so I'm enjoying the item modification system on 76. You don't know how to do everything right off the bat, only being barred from building by your perks. You learn stuff as you break things down, or buy/find schematics. Thankfully, I rock a hunting rifle, and the scorched carry them in spades. Same with the pump shotgun. I've worked out a LOT of rifle mods, and have a pretty kick ass weapon despite it being only level 10. Between my engaging at range, and the sneak damage bonus... well...

 

I did it again.

Alright, learned something today. Well, technically last night but CONFIRMED it today. There are events in the world at large: while the number of enemies in these events multiply based on how many people are participating, the LEVEL of the enemies is determined (apparently.) by the level of the person who first enters or triggers the event.

 

I was in morgantown at mama dolce's for the feed the people event: two level sixes were there first. I roll in at 14 with a NICE shotgun. I blew through most of my ammo, but was one shotting everything because they were leveled between 1-6. I then was in the right place at the right time to do the vertidrone event at morgantown airport, and I did it alone. About 5-6 scorched per wave, and all the scorched were levelled 6-10. Got me a sledgehammer!

 

So yeah, don't know how useful that information will be, but there we are.

Alright, you win so far. That is awesome.

 

In unrelated news: I found a suit of power armor tonight. I was roaming around beckley with my boy dave, and I happened across it outside the barricades. It was all shiny and perfect and had two pieces of t-45 armor on it I could not use. Not high enough level yet, but the frame is awesome. And you can compress it into your inventory and it only weighs ten pounds!
