About time! Even as an alpha this is more polished then many AAA releases these days. I can't wait to play the full complete game.

I too am basically done with Fallout from Bethesda ... their games dont float my boat.

I'm sure I'll play it, and probably enjoy it. But I suspect it won't be on par with NV.

Strangely enough I found the start of new vegas to be really kind of a letdown compared to F3, and the game traditionally doesn't "begin" for me for some reason until I hit Novac.

Of course, when you hit New Vegas proper the game explodes open and becomes teh awesome. Really wish Obsidian was helming this one.

Yep, I think F4 is going to be a major letdown compared to NV. I'll see what the reviews say and pick up the ultimate edition on discount....maybe.

So... I found out last night that Netflix is showing ads now. It was for one of their new original shows, played when simply trying to access the page for one of their other ones (i.e. not when actually trying to view any episodes). What the fuck.
They've been doing that for a while now and sometimes the homepage is a giant ad for a Netflix original series when a new season or show comes out. Also House of Cards is filled to the rim with product placements. There have been rumors that they will start showing ads before streaming starts for awhile but I think they'll just increase the subscription fee first.

I've been cable free for a few years and it wasn't till I lost access to HBO GO and various other movie channels that I thought I was missing anything. I can buy HBO GO from my ISP but blimy that's another $15 on top of my $70 internet which is also with Netflix and Amazon Prime. If I was to add Starz it would cost me about $11 or around $109. I can't help but wonder if the TV networks are trying to push people back to cable by making streaming more and more expensive. As well as making each service's offerings more fractured.

I am having a real hard time feeling sorry for the people who refuse to use STEAM Guard. Seriously, it's extremely simple to turn on and easy to use. The STEAM smartphone app even has a code generator if you don't want to wait for the email.

Yeah that's it. Let's blame the user for the company's laziness and incompetence.
Did I say Valve doesn't have any blame? No I didn't. However, you wouldn't blame the lock company for making a lock a little loose after your house got burglarized because you were too lazy to lock it in the first place.

I live in the single most populated city in the U.S. bar none and I'm stuck between two ISPs. Verizon who offers slow and very unreliable DSL and the cable company who keeps jacking up my rates every year by $10.

Verizon was more then happy to bring FIOS a couple miles west of me to one of the wealthiest neighborhoods and kept telling people it's coming to my neighborhood but nope they just announced it won't be expanded. Funny how they were more then happy to bear the costs to bring to the wealthiest parts of the city they serve but not anywhere else. They have no interests in maintaining thier DSL lines and literally allowed those lines to go to rust.

The cable company knows they're the best ISP in the area and has no qualms about raising your rates every single year. I know people who have had their rates jacked by $20 for the exact same internet I get. The argument they can't make money on upgrading Internet or expanding service is complete and total bullshit when they can charge you whatever the hell they feel like.

This has nothing to do with return on investment for upgrades but on them realizing when you have a legal monopoly why spend money to make more money? Anyone who believes otherwise either A. Works for an ISP, no offense Intended' or B. Was dropped on their head as an infant. I'm unclear who Craig Moffett works for but he is parroting exactly what the ISPs want him to. I hope he gets a cracker after his testimony.

The truth is the ISPs through deregulation and government given monopolies were allowed to set up the current market. One which benefits only them and makes competition impossible. It is not that there isn't money to be made but they can make less and force competitors out by spending next to none.

I've really enjoyed Fallout Shelter but it is unstable as hell on my iPad. So I'm very glad the Android version is coming. Dare I hope they are going to properly test and optimize this one?


As an aside you would think they would want their teaser game to work flawlessly. I really hope this isn't a taste of the buggyienes F4 will be. But this is Bethseda after all.

Basically confirms that skills have been replaced with perks, ala Skyrim. That, coupled with the 4-option dialogue wheel and voiced protagonist, probably means that skill checks are a thing of the past. Disappointing but probably not that great of a loss considering how awful they were in FO3. Really wish Obsidian was making this instead of Bethesda.
My thoughts exactly. I know everyone is comparing this to F3 but I'm comparing it NV and boy is it lacking. Exploration seems curtailed, the dialogue looks crappy, skills seem nerfed, and you seem to be able to kill anything is seconds with the power armor. I'm not optimistic about this one.

If you don't see this as an entirely possible or incipient cluster fuck then you're just blind. And no stating the obvious doesn't make me a hater or a "troll."

I quite enjoyed Mafia 2 so I wouldn't mind picking up Mafia 3 on a deep discount at some point in the future.

I've heard this game is going to be single player only.
And it will have a great campaign spanning 20-30 hours.

Yeah for 2 clams I got it. I'm always surprised there are more board games converted to video games.
I've never been blown away by a video game port of a board game. You can't replicate the feel of dice and such in a video game and for me that an essential part of a board game.

I've heard very very good things about the board game but nothing about the video game. People seem to like it on STEAM.
