Damn, man I was up till 5AM with FO4...and when I shut it down I thought it was about 2AN, heh. Is there a way to see what an item breaks down into before you pick it up? Right now I'm just grabbing everything and then going through my inventory and dumping what I don't need and it's a PITA.
Actually, when looking at a container try using the transfer option that will open a transfer/barter screen . Then when you select the item is should give you a component breakdown in the center of the screen.

Also, why not just dump it all in a work bench with the transfer all junk option. That way if you need it later , you still got it.

Because I want to focus on prioritizing materials. I don't want to be loading up on just everything and heading back to Sanctuary every 2 minutes.

Happy ho-ho y'all! Santa

A Quake 2 Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the base,
The scanners showed no signs of the alien race.
The bullets were placed in my chaingun with care,
In case Strogg invaders soon would be there.
The other marines nestled all snug in their pods,
Dreaming of gibbage and dark vengeful gods.
And I in my Kevlar, and official Quake 2 cap,
Had just settled down for a long cryo nap.
When out in the night there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my pod to see what was the matter.
I ran to the porthole, well shaded and sealed,
And cautiously turned off the magnetic shield.

The moon on the breast of the loosely packed mud,
Reminded me of Stroggos, and the puddles of blood.
When what in the sky should I get in my sights,
But a big hover sleigh and eight huge Parasites.
With a mountainous driver, whom I saw at a gander,
I knew that it must be a damned Tank Commander.
More rapid than lasers his coursers they came,
And he whipped them, and grunted, and called them by name.


"Now Slasher! Now Mincer! Now Pincer, and Mangler!
On Killer! On Ripper! On Gutter and Strangler!"
"To the top of the sandbags! To the top of the wall!"
"Move it, you maggots, or I'll slaughter you all!"


As starships that before a black hole should race,
When they meet with the deadliest hazard in space,
So down to the barracks the cyborgs they flew,
With a sleigh full of ammo and the Tank Commander too.
And then, in the courtyard, I gulped as I saw,
The gouging and scraping of each razor-sharp claw.
As I drew forth my blaster, and let out a call,
The giant Strogg bastard broke right through the wall.


He was dressed all in steel, both solid and mesh,
Held together by strips of grotesque human flesh.
A bundle of rockets he had flung on his back,
He could kill a small army with what he had in that sack.
His eyes -- how they gleamed!
"I must sound the alarms!"
This monster meant business,
He had cannons for arms!
His sly little mouth was drawn up in a grin,
And human blood dribbled all over his chin.
His guns issued smoke in a hypnotic pattern,
Encircling his head like the great rings of Saturn.
He had a broad face and a square, solid chest,
And a cybernetic heart pumping blood without rest.
He was muscular and frightening, a right evil old 'Borg,
With one thing on his mind -- sending me to the morgue.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Filled me with panic and horrible dread.
He spoke not a word but went right to the slaughter,
And my sleeping comrades became cannon fodder.
He killed all the soldiers with dual rockets blazing,
As I stood in horror my eyes blankly gazing.
The carnage complete, he strode back to the sleigh,
And I could do nothing but whimper and pray.
But I heard him say, as he flew out of sight,
"Merry Christmas, Hu-man. You got lucky tonight!"

Thought all the sales prices were set with the new Steam sales? I posted last night how Stick of Truth was one of the only UBI games not one sale, now it's on sale.

Edit: The DLC seems to be regular price, but Amazon has them on sale. Ultimate Fellowship Pack $.75 US and Samurai Spaceman Pack $.50 US, so game and dlc is $8.75.

SPSOT is worth it. It's really funny, heh.

Man, this was awful, and the game no one asked for. Sleeping Dogs was my GOTY for 2012. I was really amazed how much I enjoyed it. And all I wanted - and everyone else wanted - was just a nice follow-up. Rockstar gets it. If ain't broke, don't fix it. What a colossal waste of time and money this was. Had they built a new Sleeping Dogs and addressed some of the shortcomings making it a bit more GTA like in size and scope they would have had a huge hit on their hands. Well, hopefully it's not too late for them to do that still.

The Intel I7 3820 sits virtually neck in neck for performance with the FX3850. The I7 is currently listed at $432 bucks. The latter I just picked up for $200. If I'm going to pay twice as much for something it better be twice as good. It's not, so what the hell are you paying for beyond branding? If people want to throw money away needlessly on Intel and Nvidia be my guest, I have other things I'd rather waste my money on.

I'll bet the farm Apple will gladly take that 95% savings for themselves.

Yeah, but when all the competition are selling phones that do the same thing for $5 how many people are really going to still be forking over $500 to Apple?

Sweet. Just put the PC through it's paces and it's noticeably faster now. Just snagged FO4 off of G2A for $55 - $25 cheaper than Steam and $35 cheaper than retail - as an Xmas present to me, so yay for G2A. So it'll be a F04 Xmas over the next few days.

Yeah, thanks. I had just did an Optimized defaults on the BIOS and missed turning off the auto settings for the CPU and RAM. Got it all sorted now and the CPU is running normally too - as it was running hot prior. Whew! Was getting a little panicky there for a second, hehehe. Cheers! Now I can relax and start getting down on some rumnog!

OK, PC question time....

I got my new CPU installed without a hitch, yay! Pulled the rig apart gave it a good cleaning blew everything out. And doesn't it always suck when you put them back together and then it doesn't work, so again, yay when it does.

So the BIOS sees the CPU ok - AMD FC-8350 8 core 4Ghz. However, it shows my Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1866 RAM as 1333, and it's currently running at 1559. When I look at the memory profile it shows that in - I think - JCP it displays as 1333 but in XMP it shows 1866. I seem to recall having this issue when I first set this rig up last year - as everything was new except the CPU and GPU.

I set the mem spd to 1866 but it doesn't seem to make a lick of difference. Any ideas? The board is an ASUs M5A97 R2.0.

Also, how crazy is this weather? I actually did this on my outside workbench in t-shirt. It's 12C atm, and supposed to be 14C tomorrow, yowsa!

Just bought a game from GOG. Then tried buy 2 games from G2A, for the fist time. Got a message saying the credit card failed, 4 times and no luck. I called the cc company, they said no problems and they are not denying it. 20 minutes on Live Chat with G2A support, they told me to call the cc company. Middlefinger . Guess I'll try Kinguin.

Are you doing it through Paypal? Might want to double check with your CC provider's security because the same shit happened to me at first. Turns out G2A is flagged in their database so there was, in fact, some sort of block. They removed it and it's worked fine since.

Most games you're barely getting started by the 2 hour mark. There's no way to know if it's going to be a fair assessment in so short a time. And not to mention EA games where the devs may suddenly change or abandon the game completely. Christ, it's easier to take stuff back to Walmart after you've already used it for a few weeks. And it's not like anything is used up, it's just a sale that a dev didn't deserve - in the opinion of said consumer.

It would be different if we could resell our games - and that's something else that needs to change. Yet, we can't so I'd say that the laws need to favour consumers considerably more - as they do in a lot of other places on the planet.

Buy it on G2A for 40ish % off.

Can I add it to my Steam library if purchasing through G2A?

Yeah, it's just people selling keys from other regions where they get regional pricing deals - most are Steam, some are Uplay, etc. It shows you if someone is selling a Steam gift or key. Doesn't really matter as some people win stuff or gifted stuff they sell instead as you see that for a lot of beta codes from vid cards and stuff.

Just make sure you buy the insurance - which is like a buck. I've bought a dozen'ish games with them so far and only 1 key didn't work so with the insurance they refunded me immediately. I have zero complaints with G2A and a lot of love for them so far.

There's Kinguin too but I find G2A is better most of the time.

And also google "g2a promo code" or discount code which you can usually find a 3%-5% off savings code which basically pays for the insurance. So really it'll only cost you the $1.50ish that Paypal dings you, so it's a good score anyway you slice it.

The losses and job cuts come in the midst of an accounting scandal, in which officials have said managers set unrealistic earnings targets, under the banner of creating a big "challenge," while subordinates faked financial results.

So once again management is the problem and the working stiffs pay for it. What kind of cuts are the execs taking do you imagine? Wry
