Well said, but there is still no excuse for the pants you wore at culticon.
You mean furry neon trousers aren't your thing? ;P

Oh God, those pants!!!

Oh Michael Pachter, the delicious, delicious irony.

The Nolan North thing is pretty cool.

The Witcher thing is hilarious.

Let us know if you see Slater or Travolta!

*Chuckles to self. Looks up BA and gets serious*

Dude, you might want to reconsider that move...


I actually grew up there, decades ago. That's (the crime) more of a blip than the average day. The surrounding cities have gotten so big that everything is just a suburb of Tulsa.


Yeah, BA is fine. There's a few crappy parts, but those are everywhere. I live just outside of Owasso, and it's crazy how fast that's growing. 12 years ago it was this tiny little podunk town, and now it's nearing like 60K people.

Out of curiosity, which registry hack do you use to do a clean install with an upgrade version of 7? I still have an upgrade version of 7 lying around, wouldn't mind reinstalling it on an old box.

Thanks

I used these instructions when I did mine

I've had good luck with getting activation keys from here

Looking forward to playing this.

First they have to get the issues from patch 1.10 sorted, though...

I hadn't heard there were issues; got any more info? Started playing yesterday but didn't get very far. If there's something potentially game breaking I'd rather find out&wait now than 30 hours in

The game crashes quite a bit on initiating dialogue or fast travel. I'd been playing absolutely crash free for a month, so this patch really doesn't do me any favors.

Rather than speed optimizations, they basically cost a lot of people like 10-15 fps on average.

And finally, for me, whenever I kill a monster in a dungeon anywhere, its loot drops on TOP of the dungeon. (Ie, the land above it.) Can be quite a pain in the ass to backtrack to try to find my emerald dust...

(I'm also not a huge fan of the price rebalancing they did, and they basically made food / drinks almost worthless for healing. It used to be you could swig some cranberry juice and eat some grilled pork, and you'd heal about as well as a potion of the swallow, but now food and drinks just override each other, all durations have been set to 10 seconds, and they're about half as effective...)

Drinking that poison is absolutely terrible. I was told to refrigerate it, but honestly, I imagine it probably goes down better if you keep it room temperature.

As for the weight you drop, eh, that's all water weight anyway. Three days later it'll be back on.

Figure about 4-5 million per A-List actor for 4 months of voice acting and MoCap performance.

- Gary Oldman (5 million)
- Mark Hamill (5 million)
- Mark Strong (5 million)
- Gillian Anderson (4 million)
- Andy Serkis (5 million)

Dude, please. Gary Oldman doesn't get 5 million bucks to be the lead in a freaking movie. And the 4 months of mocap was 4 months in TOTAL between all of them, not every single guy was in the studio for 16 hours a day mocapping for 4 straight months.

I'd be surprised if any of them got more than 500K, tops.

we would like to give something back to the entire community for all your incredible support.

I imagine they'd appreciate getting an actual game at some point.

I may upgrade to Win 10 anyway. Beyond the whole tracking/privacy debacle, is there any reason not to?

The privacy stuff was really overblown anyway but that aside there's no real reason to hold off on an upgrade. The changes to licensing are less favorable to consumers but only if your hardware hash changes a lot and even then you can usually just do the phone activation thing. Its pretty much boring old Windows as usual with under the hood improvements. Most of the kinks are worked out and device compatibility is excellent. Just run the setup wizard and it will check your software/hardware first to make sure.

Does it still force every single Nvidia driver upgrade down your throat, whether you want it to or not?

Yeah there really is no missing it if you have it installed correctly, as the game hits you with like four different screens you have to acknowledge with regards to the new quest.

Check the notice board outside the Seven Cats Inn, and see if anything new is there.

HOS basically expands the upper northeast to include LOTS more land to explore, caves, places to clear out, tons and tons more stuff. So yes, in case you're wondering this is truly an expansion.

Oooh, sweeeeet!

Weren't we supposed to be back on the moon by now according to our false prophet dubyuh?

Not with a 1B/yr budget we won't. Had we diverted enough resources to it, we'd undoubtedly have made it back by now.

News Comments > Wasteland 2 Director's Cut Released
9. Re: Wasteland 2 Director's Cut Released Oct 13, 2015, 10:19 Creston
 
I quite enjoyed it, but never finished it. Once I finally made it to Hollywood after ~ 60 hours, and realized it was a monstrously massive place with tons of factions and inter-connected quests, I just gave up. I'm already not a fan of huge cities in RPGs with too much stuff to do at once, and getting me to another such city 60 hours in really doesn't tickle my funny bone. (Pillars of Eternity had the exact same problem for me.)

However, up until that point I thought it was an excellent game. Hopefully they've done some balancing with regards to the skills. It seemed fine in the first area, but once you got to Cali, 95% of all skill checks were at 10+ difficulty, which was ridiculous.
