    I think you can read what blurays I have yourself.

    Particularly cool is the mad max 1-3 bluray steelcase on the left there. And I paid like 78 euros for the complete Thunderbirds series on Blu-Ray. My most regretful purchase (which I haven't returned) is the Spiderman Trilogy steelcase. But eh, it was 15 bucks. Besides that I have 28 days later on Blu Ray which is filmed on digital cameras and so looks like shit. And then there's me owning the X-Men movies 1-3 and Origins, but not First Class and Days of Future Past. I'm sure once Apocalypse is out there'll be a 3 set bluray thingy, I'm sure. Lord of the Rings Extended set, had to have that of course. Despite some fellowship green tinting. I bought the New Vegas collector's edition for 50 euros because how could I live with not having All Roads? Uhh. . if you have any more questions or comments, shoot.

    I have that edition of Necronomicon...and that's pretty much it. I've got most of the books there tho, not counting WH40K and Hellboy stuff. Don't own a single Blu-Ray. In any case, great collection, really sweet. Thanks for posting. Fucker.

    I'm ordering that Dune edition tomorrow or on Monday. Seems great and relatively cheap.

    Has anyone gotten the chance to play Dust Survival Simulator for New Vegas? I haven't seen any threads about it here (unless someone can direct me to one), but it's a pretty fun mod and I suggest you all try it.

    I was interested, until I read the description "From the very first time I played Fallout: New Vegas, I was disappointed by the atmosphere of the Mojave. Gameplay wise, FNV was a step up from FO3, but the atmosphere was nowhere near as good. The Mojave seemed too... tame. That's where DUST comes in."

    Gonna try out Vicious Wastes crossed with JSawyer on my next playthrough.

    I rather use Apocalyptic Mojave rather than Dust. Dust removes every single quest and almost all companions in favor of it just becoming a combat sandbox about killing "cannibals" and Raiders and tunnelers.

    Fuck Fallout.


    ...


    Friend was not feeling well the other day, so I wanted to draw her a mechanical dick to make her feel better. Soon after laying the initial lines, I realized that it had potential for something else...

    So, here it is, in all its glory - RETROPLANE 2000 !




    (I have no idea why I went with that name, sounded cool at the time - it's a spaceship, obviously, not a plane)



    This is the first time I've used marker pens for coloring in the last decade or so (not counting doodles). It's not good at all, but for some reason, I feel really proud with it. Don't know why, I guess I just like it. In any case, my friend likes it (she thinks it looks like a mechanical dick, which is a bonus). Her roomie hates it though, fuck her.

    but this claims to have better AI and bleeding feature, which I was looking for fruitlessly.

    Dust is fun just to mess around in, but it is horribly unbalanced, buggy, and a bit pointless without quests. There is another mod that removes all people from the game called Alone I believe. I've never bothered with Vicious Wastes, as my game is already hard enough as is, with the mods I have running and various tweaks I have created.

    Good to see people still making mods for New Vegas though. Boom to the Moon is supposed to be a fun one. I went into the Geck to fix some issues with my tweak mod today. The mod mainly changes armors and weapons for major NPC's and soldiers. Often I will run into a naked NPC and have to go back into Geck to see what I screwed up.

    I don't know if the combat System in New Vegas would even benefit from "Bleeding" considering there is already poisons and the like in the game, not to mention the fact that in Hardcore stimpaks don't heal instantly and you have no way of removing status effects from companions. Also those mods where they up the rates of the needs by a lot tend to be rather obnoxious (Project Nevada is thankfully fully customizable so I can change them) because it doesn't make it seem realistic, it just makes me think my character is just a lazy glutton with diarrhea who shouldn't be out walking because they get dehydrated in like an hour and they always want to take a nap.

    In this case, he was simply acting out what some students wrote for him to perform, leaving the green screen in the background so that people on the net could make good use of it. I don't know if you missed the point of that or thought he was serious. :grin:
