@  wonko the sane? : (04 March 2021 - 04:49 PM)

a minivan which NOW sounds like it's on it's last legs. Christ, why is everything breaking now?!?!?

@  wonko the sane? : (04 March 2021 - 02:45 PM)

He's willing, but it's our parents minivan, and I'm half the labour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 March 2021 - 02:34 PM)

Like anything; if they're willing to haul it away it's theirs.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 March 2021 - 12:44 PM)

And now my brother wants the old fridge, so instead of letting the delivery folk deal with it, I need to move it.

@  NovaSaber : (04 March 2021 - 11:53 AM)

I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 March 2021 - 08:57 PM)

Oklahoma is right there, apparently. Dang bible belt. Nice people, but not the smartest cookies I've seen.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:21 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:21 PM)

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

And the new one we settled on is backlogged up to two months. Even better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 11:59 AM)

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

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

@  Paladin : (28 February 2021 - 09:19 AM)

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 better than the last one!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:30 AM)

The new Wizards of the Coast logo looks stupid

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:29 AM)

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.

To be honest even if my knowledge of Fallout was completely non-existent I'm fairly sure I'd still recognize that a place called "Deathclaw Island" isn't going to make for a great holiday destination.

Alright, so you guys got to me. It was a little island, and it didn't seem to have much of anything on it. So I went and checked it out to see if it was a viable camp location.

 

There was a crashed speed boat on the far side, a safe, some duffle bags, a shovel, some skeletons, and a freaking deathclaw with her nest! Thankfully, the big old bitch couldn't swim, so I was able to find a means to kill it.

 

I get it: not every location is a deathclaw sanctuary or old olney, or quarry junction. But it was this time.

I'd be down for that as a quest in general. You can make it hilarious by putting it in 76 and you've got escort a slap together protectron to document the beasties. But he get trashed by every creature, so you have literally fix him after every encounter.

I just tried to jump on for a bit before I throw myself on the elliptical. I got all the way to the load screen when I noticed the daily message was "down for maintenance". So now instead of playing: I'm concerned there's going to be another patch.

Finally managed to scrounge up a non raider right leg for my power armor! It's mostly a suit of t-51, with a little t-45 in there. Found the last piece at Arkos Pharma. Now I just need to find where the brotherhood was camping so I can start getting power armor schematics. Maybe finally hit up garahan mining for the mining armor.

Grenades man. Grenades. I wound up pulling a traveling group of greenskins in the savage divide, and wandered far enough trying to kill them that THEY pulled a small feral horde. I wound up finishing both off with a well placed cryo grenade because once the ghouls swarmed in: the muties stopped attacking me. Frankly: I'm going to need better weapons if I'm going to keep pushing into the savage divide. It's hard going, the enemies are tougher and more numerous. But I still haven't figured out the magic trick to get all weapons to actually offer up their mods when deconstructed.

Staying on top of my weapon and armor demands is starting to become a significant chore: can someone please explain to me WHY I'm able to manufacture advanced laser and plasma weapons... in powerless wood shack, in the middle of the woods, in the middle of the post apocalyptic future, using garbage but I can't make the screws I need to put the whole hugging thing together?

 

Alright, I'm not frustrated with the game. I'm frustrated with my piss poor internet connection making playing difficult.

I think I'm gonna decide if I want to go ahead and buy the PC version while it's discounted. My system could proooooobably run it with lower settings, and it'd be more convenient for me than the PS4. I'd miss out on it looking pretty, but it sounds like it's not doing too well on the consoles anyway.

 

Edit: Eh, bought it. I'll have to upgrade my PC one of these years anyway. Looks like it'll have to download overnight.

It was supposed to be a typical trip to Whitespring. Then as I crested the hill I saw it. A shadow passed over, the beating of massive wings filled my headphones. Then, a laser show fit for Led Zeppelin erupted as the resort staff opened fire on the beast. As cars exploded and robots crumbled to the ground, the Scorchbeast was finally slain, landing in a position far too vague and crumpled to get a damn picture.

I've been playing for a few hours, and so far so good. It's running fine with everything set to medium. I have had two crashes though, both when exiting workbenches. I've not made it very far past the vault yet, just poking around south of a lumber mill on the way to the first Overseer's cache.

If y'all ever see a silent old man named Chapman running around, that's me.

I finally made it to Point Pleasant, so I'm gonna quit for the night. It's been running fairly well, but regularly boots me to the desktop when tabbing back from lockpicking/interacting with a computer/setting my perks/using a crafting bench. Pretty annoying, but not a deal breaker.

 

A few things I had to photo:

 

bridge_overlook.jpg

I've been all around this area's IRL counterpart.

 

statue.jpg

Got some real pics similar to this one as well.

 

put_it_down.jpg

Obligatory pic. Also just realized I'm slowly unconsciously making Axe Cop.

 

I'll probably start working my way south next, try to make it to the coalfields. And a long-term goal: find the keys for the dome bunkers north of Point Pleasant.
