Microsoft buying Fallout doesn't change nothing we are all still fucked. In other news, I wish I was dead every day. Sep 21, 2020

      I was looking at Modiphius Fallout Warfare game again. I am so disappointed that this thing is based on Bethesda's crap.

        As if it'd be anything else. The tabletop RPG system is even worse. 2d20 instead of 1d100 and they're going to simplify skills

        Why on earth you'd want to lobotomize the RPG features for a tabletop audience with an original system that is perfectly applicable to dice rolls in the first place I don't know

      Dammit, I have been waiting for two hours now for that damn plumber to come, and I really need to go. I already missed buying groceries.

        The toilet was blocked. Think it happened because of toilet paper, I was having a case of severe runs during this week.
        The plumber did eventually show up and the issue was solved within ten minutes.
        All that was needed was a plunger which I of course did not have.

        That is kinda something you need on hand to save yourself money in situations like that. It is also why in the country you have a trashcan to throw away those piles of shit paper you were flushing down the drain.

        The plumber is part of the services the organization provides that I rent the apartment from so costs are at least not my problem.
        But having a clogged up toilet is a real pain.
        Heh definitely not going to save up the shit paper here.

        Okay I do not want to sound like that either, I want reviews that don't pander to anyone, pro or against okay?
        Neutral reviews, games on their own merits.
        I honestly don't want to discuss or read about politics.

        Ah dammit, I see what you mean. It will probably not do any better with those old book covers I talked about.

        Well it is really annoying as I have been looking for that episode ever since I downloaded the whole show.

        Indeed, something really feels like the "missing piece" rather than another infatuation.
        It were these W&W games I wanted to get but damn are they expensive and I hate getting stuff that just collects dust.

        If you can get Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition in a dirt cheap sale, it's worth getting. Actually, on Steam, it's half price now until June 17. May not be cheap enough. Play with mods if you get it.

      Just saw your Area 51 idea in the 'What Fallout was supposed to be' thread. If you ever get a year spanning wild hair and make that mod be sure to let us know. It sounds excellent, and frankly anything to explain some of the Wild Wasteland-style inclusions, before and after the Wild Wasteland solution was created, would be great.

        Something else I wanted to do was bring Tibbet's facility back in a mod/fan DLC. The player would accidentally be caught by the computerized warden and would have to organize a prison break only to discover that letting the prisoners escape into the wasteland is not such a good idea as all are infected with Limit 115.
        The player could work with the warden/ODYSSEUS, the prisoners, or work out a solution with both.

        I'd have liked to see how that might have evolved. Tibbet's prison was in Arizona, I believe, so you're having fun times in legion territory. How the interactions between the Legion town heads nearby, and the warden could be interesting. Some people may even *want* to release Limit 115 prisoners to spawn unrest in the East. Fun times.

        I really had this wish to bring back some of the locations planned for Van Buren. The player would go to Denver to seek the source of the plague, the Nursery to develop a cure, and BOMB001 when the player learns from the Warden that as part of a containment protocol it activated BOMB001 in order to sterilize the infected region.

      At this point I wish I could say anything about Fallout 76 here or on the codex. But it is so soulless and a pure product.

        You are talking to one of the biggest Metroid fans probably on this forum. I adore almost every game except the two first games (to old), Metroid Hunters, Other M, and Federation Force (was okay, not good, especially in SP mode). Hmm, the Messenger

        I actually read it more than I post. But that might me because I don't have much time usually. So, whenever I have the time, I prefer to post here on NMA or other forums where I am a member for longer.

        Although there seem to be a lot of edgy posters around there compared to here. xD

        Never played them actually. In general I don't like fantasy with the exception of Planescape Torment as it was so alien and not Tolkien esque.
        I always preferred robots, aliens, science above wizards, trolls, orcs etc.

        Of course, there are plenty of very unique fantasy settings that do not depend on or use the tropes from European mythology/Tolkien esque fantasy such as Asian ones. Don't think there are many East European ones.

        Still I prefer sci fi in general.

        Thing is that I am left leaning, but lately I feel I am more and more a moderate. Eventually or perhaps now already some may even say that I am right leaning.

        Also, I think it's unfair to talk about Arcanum as if it's a fantasy game. It's not, the game began at the point in time where technology is just begin to take over the world, and I'd say they did really good job of making it appear more steampunk than fantasy despite of the elements from the latter appearing in a lot of the places in the game.

        Fanboys in general are retarded. Our torch holding for the old Fallout's to the extreme some have taken it is absurd. These Youtubers make old school Fallout fans look like idiots. Ultimately it is all stupid video games and we all suck.

        These people can't be bothered to shower and wear clean clothes because they are so engaged in their games?
        Or do they absolutely have no idea what bad B.O. does for one's appearance and reputation?

        Even I am quite conscious about my body odor and I hate it when it is clear that other people are repulsed by it when I smell like an old gym sock that has not been washed in ages.
