Does Steam OS also hang like Windows 10 for up to a minute at times for no apparent reason while opening just about anything/everything?

I don't have a Steam Machine so all I can comment on is 10. I regret trying out the free upgrade. It is better than Windows 8 but is not really ready for prime time. My up to date Nvidia drives are constantly crashing in aps and while using the edge browser. YouTube videos are also going black screen with only audio. I think this weekend is rollback time.

I have 4 different devices running Windows 10, from my Home Desktop to a couple Surface 3 Pro's and see none of these issues.

Yes, because it's not as if there was a huge stock market crash in 1999, or in 2008, and it's not as if the housing market has already collapsed once.

You missed the most important money-saving tip of all, btw: Move to California!

Stop telling people how to spend their money.

Agreed! It's about BALANCE. Put money in a 401K or equivalent, but enjoy life a little bit. $60 is not going to ruin your future.

As far as FO4 not being an good RPG... can't really agree, it's a living world where MOB's have agendas, you can be a gun slinger, a Ninja, Sniper, Cool Guy (high Charima), etc. You pick a role and you can play it, nothing in teh game stopping that.

Holy hell are the Legendary MOBS tough. I'm exploring the map starting from the very Northern top (game tip says tougher stuff heading South) and then doing row sweeps from West->East and vice-versa. Have come across two different Legendary MOBS already in the first West->East (from Sanctuary) sweep. Ran away once, died the next. Have decent guns, they just take some massive damage. Yikes...

Great game so far, building the Settlement has been an excellent addition to the game.

Back to exploring!

When you make games based on timesinks and grinding, this is what happens. I mean, let's think about it for just a second. In a single-player RPG, are you expected to grind for weeks on end to afford an armor in game? When the incentive to repeat dungeons with other people is the shiny tokens that gets you a new weapon or armor rather than the gameplay itself, you have a problem. Design MMO's more like single-player RPGs, remove the timesinks and the grind, and make the games actually fun, then things like this will cease to exist. When you put everyone on a treadmill that only speeds up over time, the natural result is some people are either going to fall behind, or find ways to beat the system. All my most pleasant memories from the MMO's I've played have nothing to do with the games themselves, but the people I played with. All that raiding, all the repetitive tasks that felt more like a chore than anything even remotely fun, all of it amounted to my current distaste for MMO's in general.

A-phucking-men.

The first 20 levels of most MMO's are have a very smooth level curve, then I guess once the "crack" dealer mentality kicks in the level curve goes STEEP and it takes forever to level... just grind-grind-grind. Gets boring, I can see why people would want a bot to level and get resources while you actually do something fun.

This is from STEAM, under Fallout Guides about scraping, FYI -

Getting Resources

How to get resources from buildings and unpickupable items
Before going to the lists, the first thing a beginner should know is how to scrap buildings, furniture or level actors like trees into the base building blocks like wood, steel and concrete. To do this, you must be in range of a workbench. If you are in range of a workbench, you can hold V to access the workbench mechanics. Workbenches can be found everywhere that a settlement can be founded, for example, Sanctuary. After this is done, look at the item you want to scrap (for example, a tree or a rubber tire) and press R. This should bring up another menu telling you what you will get if you scrap the specific item. If you click yes, the item will disappear from the world, and the scrapped materials can be found at the workbench.

How to get resources from items, weapons and armor

Simply drop said item you want to scrap within the boundaries of a workbench, hold V, look at the item, then press R. The same screen should pop up and the materials that have been scrapped will, yet again, be located at the workbench.
However, keep in mind that if you don't scrap each item individually and instead, automatically use them in recipes, there is a chance where you will lose the other resouces that you haven't used from the item. Eg, I use the wood from the pencil without scrapping, but lose the lead.

Accessing the scrapped resources

To access and transport the resources made via scrapping, go to the workbench and press R (or whatever your ‘transfer’ key is).

Shortcuts, Tips and Tricks
- When at your workbench, you can press T by default to automatically store all junk in the workshop storage.

- When building, you can hover over a blueprint that you don't have resources over, and press Q to tag. What this does is that whenever you find an item in the world that has a specific resource that you have tagged, it will show up with a 'magnifying glass' next to it. This is extremely helpful in shop menus and tags can last infinitely.

- Crafting anything within the workbench circle (marked by the green line) will automatically rely on the workbench's inventory for materials before searching in the player's inventory. This means that keeping anything material in a separate chest aside from the workbench, is not a good idea.

- If you scrap a container with items still inside, the items will teleport to the storage of the workbench.

- A scavenging container allows a settler to be assigned to it. Once assigned, random resources will be appearing in your workshop storage.

So much scrolling... I'm having nightmares about it...

Carry around the usual 200 pieces of crap... Oh look, a T-45 Armor piece I can throw in my 'bank' for later... I should count, but I think I had to flick the mousewheel like 20 times to get down to T to click it, as container management lists every single item...

Like the previous games, you can click the little arrows to the left or right of where it says "My Inventory" or "<container name>" to switch from a full listing of contents to those categories that exist in your Pip-boy, weapons, apparel, aid, misc, ammo, etc. They've also directly implemented a sorting feature that we used to have to install a mod for, you can sort by weight and caps value, maybe a couple others.

The Sorting feature is awesome, use it all the time. When selling, getting rid of heavy items, or choosing the strongest weapon.

Really enjoying the game so far, no negatives to speak of and I haven't run into any bugs yet. The main quest has been decent so far, definitely a step up from FO3. Love the new combat/VATS system and the voiced dialogue is surprisingly immersive. I don't find the dialogue options very limiting but I'm not far in yet.

Took 30 seconds to edit a few ini files and was off to the races.

What did you edit for? FOV?

The main edits for most people have been for FoV and Mouse Acceleration.

Agreed! I just had the Pipboy & weapon invisible 'feature' but it can be corrected in-game with Zoom. Other than that it's been smooth.

Enjoying it so far (2 hours in). Agree with Creston about the Character Models, kind of 'meh' but other than that, the environment looks very nice with a GTX 970. No bugs so far, changed the FoV to 90 in the 3/4 different .ini files and took off Mouse Acceleration. Going for a Sniper SPECIAL build, my close-up twitch days are numbered.

Do you get that weird thing during dialogue where the screen looks off by a bit? I think it's related to the FOV90 tweak. You'll notice it more when you get into the power armor.

Creston, the Dialog (and choices) seemed to be OK when I was in the Power Armor, I didn't notice any change from earlier in the game. Did you change the FOV in the few different places? Just do a c:\ search for Fallout4.ini and it should show you the 3 or 4 les and folder locations.

In regards to the 'debate' about how good this game is or not, if you liked FO3 or FNV, you will most likely enjoy FO4, else, you won't. Not sure why this is coming as such a big surprise to some people.

So far I'm having fun EXPLORING (and fighting in) the Commonwealth wasteland. There is interesting stuff to find if you don't just fly through everything. Some people say you get the Power Armor in the first five minutes of the game... I say... the phuck? Took me almost 2.5 hours to get to that point. Slow down and enjoy the ride.

I hit my first bug (~ 2.5 hours of play)... from time to time when I hit 'TAB' my Pipboy won't show up but the functionality is there, just not the UI for it. As well, my currently armed weapon will also go invisible but I can still shoot. If I exit out (to main menu) and come back in it resets and shows correctly. GTX 970, latest drivers. Other than that, just joined the "Minutemen" and having a good time.

My GeForce GTX 970 is ready! Wish I could play the game NOW!

I think I will start with a high Charisma, pacifist type character and let the people/creatures of the Wasteland do my dirty work for me. I usually go Sniper, but it's time for something new with this chapter of the Fallout series. Look forward to seeing a post-nuke Boston/Commonwealth environment (only in a video game of course).

Boston!

Deflate this!

Actually, my wife's vehicles tire pressure has gone down since we have been getting colder up here in the MA area. Imagine that.

Game looks good, look forward to playing it, hope my 970 pumps up the graphics.

Ugh... I never finished Oblivion, Fallout 3, Fallout:NV, or Skyrim... why would I get this?

I just can't help it, I like these games but I just lose interest over time (they never seem to end), and F4 is in Bah'ston, now I have to play it just for that!

Hope I can push through and MAYBE finish this one...

News Comments > 9M Played Star Wars Battlefront Beta
38. Re: 9M Played Star Wars Battlefront Beta Oct 13, 2015, 16:15 Undocumented Alien
 
I did like the beta also. I will probably buy the game, sometimes after release.

Something my boy and I can do together as far as gaming goes (we outdoors stuff too!). There is battle violence, but no gore at least, so it's Mom approved. Plus we both like Star Wars so it will be fun to do coop missions and even MP once in a while.

In regards to Battlefield 2, this isn't much different as far as gameplay, the ships fly the same and the vehicles are similar (AT-ST). Yes, the AT-AT on rails is poor, but what can ya do. We have been playing BF2 together via Game Ranger lately and BF3 feels the same. The visuals and sound are greatly updated though.

Besides the lack of a Server Browser, which does suck, the game itself is not bad. Its much like D3, very high production values with thin deep gameplay, fun in short bursts.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront Open Beta Extended One Day
38. Re: Star Wars Battlefront Open Beta Extended One Day Oct 12, 2015, 19:28 Undocumented Alien
 
It is a kid oriented/simplified Battlefield game - EAs going for the hit a button and amazing happens with this one. Kind of like DA2 vs DA1

IDK, Diab-WoW 3 is the same and it seems to be pretty popular on Blues. Definitely, and vastly, dumbed down from D1->D2->D3.

Is D3 fun? It's fun in short bursts (a little more with coop) to just kill things quickly and watch them fly all over the screen, but because it's so freaking easy and pointless it gets boring quick.

I can see jumping into a few matches of B3, scratching the Star Wars itch, then logging out. My little guy (8 y/o) likes it so I will do coop with him (missions) and maybe go into the multiplayer zoo from time to time.

Yes, it could be better, but it's not a terrible game either.
