News Comments > Fallout 4 Patch Breaks Mod Support

Mods work fine for me using this custom launcher.

It's probably an oversight but it would really, really suck if they're locking down unofficial modding because they want mods to be console compatible.

Did the Outbox duo really think that the population are the USPS's customers? That seems highly naive. It's like thinking Facebook users are Facebook's customers; no, we're the product being sold.

They still got royally screwed but trying to fix a problem that only exists because it benefits the people who can fix it - i.e. junk mail - isn't a technical challenge, it's a business one.

News Comments > Eagle Flight Announced
4. Re: Eagle Flight Announced Dec 6, 2015, 23:27 Quboid
 
I played a game called Ambient Flight on the Rift DK1. It's similar to this, where you controlled a bird and changed direction with your head. It worked really well and is a great demo to introduce people to VR. It certainly wasn't on-rails and I don't expect this will be either, although going through the church or trees did look a bit close.

Eagle Flight clearly has much higher production values than Ambient Flight but I'm not convinced there's actually a game here. This looks more like a freebie that comes with a headset, from what little we've seen.

This punk basically attempted to murder people over 100 times. So yes, when other idiots consider doing this and say 'Hrm, do I really want to go to prison for 20 years just to get back at some guy online that I don't even know called me a fag during a game?' For 99.9% of them the answer will be no. For that 0.1% that do, they don't belong in society at any rate so problem solved by locking them away.

Again, do you think that the people who say no to that are going to say yes to 5 years? Most of them probably wouldn't do it if they thought their parents would find out!

This guy did it a hundred times, so in his case the 18 year sentence is deserved.

Who is going to be willing to risk 5 years but not 20? These punks don't care what punishment they're not going to face.

I gather that it is a quite faithful recreation of the originals, although I haven't played the old ones. The problem is that people have moved on and I think I'm in a majority that don't enjoy that sort of grind any more. Games can now be deep and engrossing without being so repetitive.

How often does anyone actually get killed in a swatting? For all the dangers that are involved, as a way to actually get someone killed it is pretty useless. A charge of manslaughter if someone does get killed might stick, or reckless endangerment if someone is hurt.

He deserves a long sentence but I don't think idiots will be deterred by the length of the sentence because they think they're too smart to get caught. Swatters being found guilty in court is biggest deterrent because that makes it harder for potential swatters to feel confident about their own safety.

This is the new norm for companies, I remember my employee handbook for my old job said you will be held accountable for ANYTHING you said about the company on anything digital. I can see both sides of the argument. Company wants to protect itself and its image, employees want to complain about things that are going wrong with there jobs.

Anything digital? Including email or other private messages?

I can understand companies not allowing employees to badmouth them publicly and doing so online shouldn't be any different. However, things like requiring Facebook login details seems more like demanding employees wear microphones so private conversations can be monitored.

It's good to see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive doing so well.

Meh... I guess. I just find it amazing there are still people alive, with a computer, that don't have CS:GO, or have already played enough of the previous versions to be utterly sick of the CS format.

$15 Elite:Dangerous was too tempting, I contributed to that #5 placement, I'm sorry to say.

These people exist. Some of them have even regularly visited a highly respected PC gaming website for over half their lives, posting nearly 5000 times in that time

$25.99

I purchased COD BO3 from them on the cheap, transaction was smooth.

Do you know where their keys are from? That's a little too good to be true IMHO. I don't see anything about a guarantee.

I never see huge comment thread's about Amazon's practices. I mean they are the root of fucking evil and yet I bet everyone here, myself included, uses it.

They do this shit all of the time. They say something retails at one price, say it's 60%, when the actual market value is a lot less.

For instance - I am looking at a shoe, it sells for around $45.00-55.00 at most retailers. But, Amazon says that the retail price is $115.00 and I am getting a steal with 57% off. It's fluff marketing! I mean, we don't even have to sit here and think about this shit these days when you have good old google over there for a person to take 3 fucking god damn seconds to type some shit in, to do your research for you. And you guys are pissed about some shitty Steam game sales, lol!

People on a PC gaming site discussing PC games and not shoes? We're so weird!

Sounds like the Steam Spy guy might have blinders on, staring so hard at all those numbers that he neglects to consider why the prices may have changed. Two of those games are in fact in Early Access and have recently received large updates; I don't know if Bugbear mentioned the price shift was happening, but the developer for Epistory did say on Monday that the update marked the end of their early bird pricing.

Regardless, the easy way to see if this is nefarious or just coincidental is to wait until the sale is over, see if the prices stay where they are now or go back down.

At least in the UK, it is only the price before the discount that matters and I don't think announcements (especially so recent) or Early Access labels matter.

Companies doing shady stuff shouldn't be accepted or ignored. Just because I can figure out that some 50% discount is actually 25% - using tools not provided by Valve - doesn't mean their attempted fraud is acceptable.

It is illegal in many countries and Valve have been slapped down (Civ Beyond Earth) in the UK at least twice (GTAV) for precisely this so I don't think a shrug of the shoulders will cut it.

no kidding. the folks at EA are popping champagne corks as we speak. They're happy someone else is going to try this nonsense first and take the brunt of the criticism for when they roll out FIFA FtP.

FIFA World launched a couple of years ago. It shut down earlier this year.

It won't show all items together when you look in an individual container, but you'll have the materials available to you when building or crafting. Once you've got a big stash in your main base, wherever that is, the easiest way to pimp out a new settlement is to get that connection established.

This. I'm building a freaking LEGION in the Commonwealth. Soon, nobody will move in the greater Boston area without my say-so.

I grabbed the solo-play perks and have been playing with myself since, so to speak. I dismissed the dog as soon as I could and I haven't seen it for about 25 hours. I hope it's okay...

What do supply lines actually do? I thought they would pool each settlement's workshop inventory but it seems not unless there's a flaw in my testing methodology (open WS inventory, note top few items and their quantities, fast travel, open WS inventory, compare top few items).
