where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

The "humans as processors" bit was also used in season 2 of Dollhouse.

@  Pennpenn : (20 May 2017 - 04:27 AM)

I just remembered, I wonder if the scene in Thor 2 with the kids showing the abandoned building with glitchy reality was inspired by the Animatrix short that had the same concept (but could handle it more interestingly)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:59 AM)

It's not bull, the elite are using the 90% through wifi for their Androcide agenda. Learn the undisprovable truth.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:26 AM)

I think there was an early draft where the machines were using humans as processors with the whole "only use 10% of their brains" bull.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 May 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Wasn't there an early draft where they weren't using humans for that?

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:26 PM)

Yeah, makes the Matrix seem more like a nature reserve than a source of power, and I get the feeling the whole "humans as a source of power" was done pretty much to justify the machines keeping humans around at all without making the machines seem sympathetic.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:23 PM)

But after watching The Second Renaissance, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the machines still felt some lingering moral imperative to allow the human survivors of the war some kind of life rather than committing genocide. They did everything in their power to avoid the war in the first place

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:21 PM)

It seems like reverting to solar power would be infinitely preferable to having to maintain The Matrix and everyone hooked into it, and all the associated hardware

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:18 PM)

Although I think I remember hearing somewhere that the "clouds" darkening the sky are actually swarms of constantly-muliplying nanomachines? No idea if that's canon or not, but if it is it seems like that'd be something the machines themselves could figure out how to undo if they really wanted to

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:16 PM)

I dunno, for all their technical achievements those humans seemed just as shortsighted as in the present. And they were desperate by the time that was done, so it wouldn't surprise me if they just thought "ah, we'll figure out how to undo it later"

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:00 PM)

Also gotta wonder if the humans had some idea of how they were going to fix the sky, presuming they won out, because otherwise they were basically commiting suicide out of spite and the Matrix would be the only reason humanity is still alive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 09:07 PM)

One of the first things I thought myself after my first time through it

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Every time I watch "The Second Renaissance" I get the feeling I'd probably end up getting shot for being a machine sympathizer.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2017 - 10:36 PM)

Yeah, Ghostbusters. Specifically the episode where they check out the live action Hollywood "adaptation."

So for those of you who helped Ringo out, and found him later on, you find out that HIGHLIGHT to view:
he's gonna be heading up a Crimson Caravan group to a city in Utah to establish trade there.

Frankly, I'd love for that to be part of the DLC.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Well, the quest thing told me that working with Yes Man would make the NCR not accept my help anymore. That was pretty clearly false, though.

The bomber and, y'know, Securitron Army. There IS actually an option to wipe out the NCR with the latter (which might involve the Boomers too, as they're helping the PC specifically, not the NC) after the Legion goes down, so!

Given how much of New Vegas was recycled content from Van Buren (aka Black Isle's Fallout 3), I honestly wouldn't be surprised. I figure by the end of New Vegas' official life cycle (Modding will extend this another ten years. People are still modding Oblivion, after all) we'll essentially have all the components of Van Buren. So expect New Canaan, DayGlow (It'd be funny if that's where the Bright Followers ended up), and B.O.M.B. 001.

Well, I am officially retiring this game.
I just finished the Caleb McCafferty bounty, and went to cash in from Francine Garrett only to find out that the character has inexplicably disappeared from the game.

I'm so hugging done with this load of tripe.
Maybe I'll pick it up again in a year when hopefully enough patches have been done to fix this stupid kind of crap.

Boo, Bethesda. Boo.

There's also a large complex just outside the Strip that's completely boarded off that would be extraordinarily easy to open up.

And is this the blocked off road you're talking about?

Vault 22 is spooky, till you understand that they're hiding in the foliage and don't "activate" till you cross them. You can't target kill them in VATS (But you can manual aim kill them), but you control when the fight with them begins.

There is one thing that sticks out to me about possible DLC plot hooks. In Primm, when you talk to Jon Nash, he'll tell you that a different person was originally going to carry the chip, but when he seen the player's name he passed on the job and the money. This guy clearly has history with the Courier, but never mentioned again. That to me screams 'DLC Story'

In my opinion, best solution for them is the Flamer. Come across a patch of Foliage; and do a quick burst of flame. Either you get it, and continue to burn or you waste a small bit of fuel but remain healthy.


I ended up beating the game, went the independent path. Its not as cool a final battle as FO3, but the Independent (and possibly Mr. House path) is close. HIGHLIGHT to view:
Having an army of Upgraded Sercuritrons as your army, to take out the majority of both sides. Then at the end when dealing with the General Oliver. "Alright, I've had enough. Yes man, Toss the General off the dam." and then you get a short cut scene of a Securitron tossing him off the dam.

So, maybe a stupid observation, but has anyone else realized there are no more invisible walls at the borders of the map?

Off the Map
What's Out There

See that mountain range in the distance? Keep that in mind.

Well, this tells me nothing anymore
Standing on said Mountain Range, no Console Commands needed


The Ground is completely solid as far as I can tell, and the Colorado River continues all the way to this point of the map, then curves around a natural mountain chain. The Mountains seem to be the physical "barrier" to the map, and otherwise that's all open real estate. This is a lot of empty game world that could give rise to a heckuva lot of DLC, or just be a modders paradise to set down towns and quests without interfering with the vanilla game world.

Due note I went South from Camp Searchlight/Searclight Airport. Given the Colorado River extension, however, I'm assuming this landmass wraps all around the game map.

Now, the above screens are as far as one can go (at least South) without cheating. With help from the Console, let's see what's on the other side of this mountain, shall we? Holy Crap, MORE landmass! Granted this stuff is featureless and only the barest bone texture, but it's still solid. It goes on to the horizon. At the horizon?

The End of the World.

Well, okay not the technical end of the world. There's still a little patch of landmass below the cut off before it drops into oblivion, but for all intents and purposes I walked off the game map, into undeveloped terrain till I hit the point of "Here There Be Dragons". Still though, this section was only accessible via the Console. Up to that Mountain, that's all vanilla access.

DLC, Modder's Paradise, the reason these games have invisible walls that proclaim "You Can Go No Further"? Whatever the reason, I felt the desire to share the discovery.

Well, I've figured out two likely DLCs for New Vegas:

1) The Courier that Turned Down the Job

Jonathan Nash fills you in on the original "Courier Six" that turned the job down after seeing the player's name. There's also the mysterious debris filled tunnel with the sign declaring "Better Go Home Courier!". I feel these two objectives are related.


2) Father Elijah

I found Veronica for the first time (Seriously, I somehow kept missing that Trade Station), and got to talking with her. Speaking about the late, unlamented Brotherhood Elder and his "farewell" address to Veronica. Well...

So much of New Vegas is recycled Van Braun material, I can't help but suspect it's tied to B.O.M.B. 001.

I mentioned the previous Courier. But Another DLC plot hook is the Burned man. All around you see graffiti about him, people talking about him; and in VB he was a companion. So it I'd be kinda surprised if they don't do something with him.
