I'm really not understanding the negativity about Fallout 76, the gameplay videos look pretty good to me, except for some performance issues that will likely be sorted before release.

 

 

The negativity is because nobody asked for it. Nobody asked for a survival game with a Fallout skin. Nobody asked for Bethesda to make another attempt at paid mods. 

 

The last time Bethesda rammed an online game down our throats was Elder Scrolls Online. Nobody wanted it. We wanted the next Skyrim. We were promised Skyrim Online. We didn't get Skyrim Online, we got another generic MMO that has failed horribly. Now they tell us that we won't get another Elder Scrolls game until their unnamed IP is released sometime in the distant future.

 

A lot of people see the online-ification of Fallout as Elder Scrolls Online 2.0... And they have every right to be concerned with the disaster that we all knew was coming when they released ESO.

=> Bethesda + Bugfixing & Optimization = Does not compute

 

 

Bethesda uses the mod community to bugfix and optimize their games.

A video on Fallout 76 I saw indicated that the world is fairly lonely. Like, you get quests from a computer, and rewards for completion from it. You go looking for people as part of quests, and find only corpses. Now, I've only played 3 and New Vegas, but never coming across another living person that isn't an enemy(?) (unless they're a player)...? If I wanted to be that lonely, I'd play Subnautica.

On the M113, I'm surprised that the US apparently only stopped buying M113s in 2007. Jesus. Plus the replacement will only be doing so at and below brigade level, so M113s will likely remain in service into the 2030s or later.

WB has produced a lot of successful TV shows that it licensed to the actual networks we watched it on.  So probably some reboots of those nobody wanted.

This is what I expected when the first streaming services started coming out, and part of why I've never subscribed to any. 

 

Instead of paying the cable company $X per month, we're going to end up with shows we want to watch scattered all over the place, and potentially paying umpteen streaming services at least as much in total as we used to pay one cable company.

Which, yeah, I refuse to do. I pay for two, and it's more than enough for me, really.

There will be multiple of them collapsing within the next decade for sure, at which point they will consolidate.......and the prices will go up :sceptic:

I pay for 2 and the wife pays for another (netflix/hulu/hbo) and that's more content than we could ever consume, or want to, and altogether still cheaper than cable with more choice and less commercials.

But it is plenty annoying when there's just one thing you want to see.  Like, the new DC streaming service.  I would love to watch the 3rd season of Young Justice, and I'd like to see the new Harley Quinn show.  But not if it costs a subscription service for multiple months.

 

I wonder how or if any of them will deal with people dipping in for a month and then unsubscribing.

NEVER EVER heard of Portugal being hit by a hurricane.:confused:

Good to hear...even a low-grade hurricane is no joke.

 

It's something that started slowly but surely occurring about 15ishyears ago.

The IPMA says these are harder to track than the US ones too and have failed to give a reason why but changes in atmospheric pressure have definitely happened.

 

We have now a few of these atmospheric phenomena every year.

I remember being shut inside middle school (the building was fabricated to withstand natural disasters, especially Earth Quakes which is what we are most plagued with in the area, all school buildings in Portugal are required by law to be built that way) once as a tornado started right on an empty field behind the school, it went towards the town and killed one woman, this was many years ago, about the same period when they started occurring more frequently.

So, Paul Allen died. I can't help but wonder what this'll mean for future expeditions to find various ships. He'd been on such a roll the last several years. :(
