It sounds like that Blair is a real asshole. Holy shit, I would lose my fuckin' mind if my kid brought some bullshit like this down on my family.

Err ok he was a tool but do you think he "brought it down" on their household? Kind of a ridiculously disproportional response. The hacker in question has numerous other offenses and is probably just the type who is looking for trouble anyway. Got family members fired, harassed them all with death threats, swatting and other bullshit. The little chickenshit even brags about it sitting in Finland, safe behind the computer screen. Nothing they did deserved that and you can't blame them for basically being hit by lightning. He could've done nothing at all and still incurred this idiots "wrath".

That's disingenuous at best. It checks things against a list of known malware and lets the user make a decision if its unknown. It is not designed to "drive traffic" anywhere, it was designed to help prevent malware via drive-by downloads.

I don't agree. People wanted faster updates, they delivered. Faster updates come at the cost of less polish and things being missed. They missed a few things, not a big deal. There are other settings they could've toggled that would make a lot more money.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't. They're being responsible and fixing it quickly, people should be lauding that sort of corporate behavior.

The actual settings forgotten were:

-Let apps use my advertising ID
-Turn on SmartScreen Filter for web content
-Sync with devices

Not exactly a conspiracy.

Console commands are pretty much a requirement to make a decent looking settlement. Gotta tinker with collision and use precision positioning commands etc.

Also pretty essential for advancing quests that have become broken as is usual for Bethesda.

I don't know, I've made some pretty spiffy settlements with the base game and my imagination. The clipping stuff gets annoying but I can usually workaround it. It is weird how much they limited the item pool though. In terms of broken stuff I think this is my first Bethesda game where everything just works. Maybe I've been lucky so far but no crashes, no script trigger problems or etc. It's just been smooth sailing.

Fallout 4 is so much more fun when you get to Diamond City and start getting more direction. The various sidequests tie into a lot of different locations and give them more context. Having a great time with the game still. I kind of regret going for local leader so quickly in my build, I feel a bit underpowered for some quests but I suspect they're the ones I'm expected to use Power Armor for.

The dialog mod is essential, its such a small change but makes a huge difference.

I never saw the third Riddick on account of people saying it was basically "pitch black reloaded." (I would have gladly gone to see another movie about the Necromongers.)

Anyone here see it? I thought it bombed too, so to see a fourth one being made seems strange.

It was exactly that but perfectly executed, a great movie. The necromongers space soap opera stuff was never that compelling IMO and I'm glad they stopped. The CGI budget on that stuff would've sunk the franchise.

I've always used a Roku or FireTV for streaming, the consoles use a lot more power and have other annoyances. The PS4 can't be powered up using the Harmony remote for example, Sony only lets "official" controllers do that. It can power it down though, go figure. So if you wanted to watch a show or something you would need to grab a controller, power up PS4, grab your remote and control everything. It's just an unnecessary layer. Both consoles also have constant updates that are basically closing potential piracy loopholes under the guise of "various improvements" which means you can't do anything network related until they install of course.

I don't think we need a second console in the house anymore so I'll probably be skipping the Xbox One entirely this gen. Between Steam, the girlfriends Wii U and the PS4 we're more than covered.

He might not affect the Lone Wanderer perk but he provides +15 to Getting Stuck In Doors While Fighting. Bethesda also gave him a +5 Run After Random Shit Offscreen While I'm Sneaking perk that I don't want.

Yeah that's real classy. You broke the rules around here for the umpteenth time and you abuse the guy who provides the free community and inexplicably tolerates your inane childish behavior.

You're a wart.

What is interesting I would be more interested in these machines running windows.

It would not be interesting at all unless you have money to flush down the toilet. You can build a MUCH better living-room HTPC for a fraction of the price of these overpriced Steam garbage machines. And you get to cherry-pick your own components.

I don't know about this, I've done some ITX sized builds and they are expensive unless you cheap out on parts. If you want a tower in your living room you can do that cheap maybe. Some of the steam machines aren't bad at all in price to performance, especially when you consider the potential target market that just wants a 10 foot interface and cheap games. These are largely being built to order anyway, I doubt anyone is taking a big hit if they don't sell well.

Personally I would rather just keep my tower and use a Steam Link to stream from that so that I get better compatibility. I have to admit though its pretty impressive how far SteamOS came in a few years. If only the driver situation on Linux wasn't such a shitshow and publishers took the market seriously at all. It's hard enough getting stuff ported well, let alone a working Linux build.

I still don't understand what niche Steam Machines were suppose to fill.

It's Valve hedging their bets in case Microsoft goes full retard with the Windows Store or Windows in general. I see people on forums all the time asking for build advice or specs for their first computer, probably just aimed at that crowd.

Remember when games started out on DOS/Windows? It was a shit show and a lot of them were annoying to run. Now look at where we are. SteamOS had to start somewhere. Whether it ends up being a viable platform is anyones guess but I appreciate the option. Its nowhere close to being a viable main platform without a Windows Host somewhere else in the house but its come a long way in a short period of time.

They didn't take much risk on it anyway. They were smart enough to let others build the machines and instead did the controller/link so if the whole thing goes nowhere then they haven't waste a lot of resources.

Your continued ranting against fallout is rather humorous. Do you think it'll make a difference with them?


You mean Generic Wasteland Simulator? ;)I'm not the only one. Besides my ranting is rather tame. On the flipside, I find it very humorous that overly sensitive folks think the negative review panning is a 'conspiracy' against Bethesda. I mean they aren't in the business of making compelling RPG's anymore or improving their weaknesses and if that's what people want, they should by all means throw money at them. I simply see no redeeming quality in it and decided to jump off the Beth wagon.

We heard you the first 10 times. Do you think there is a purpose in repeating yourself over and over? Are you trying to sway people having fun into...not having fun? Like what is the end goal here? Go rant at Bethesda on twitter or something. I'm all for critical feedback but you have nothing of value to offer, having not even played the game and just seem to throw out vague criticism.

Go to Diamond City and explore the game from there. It leads you to some cool locales and quests that are more interesting than the random shit from Sanctuary. I thought the game was pretty boring around the beginning areas/quests but becomes much more interesting as you progress.

Also melee characters own and can do some crazy shit once you build up a bit. Melee/sneak is especially fun.

The Eagles are so disappointing this year. Great team on paper but just can't get it together. The Cowboys without Romo are just sad too. Carolina is still undefeated but they've had a really weak schedule so far. I'm having more fun with the picks this year though, lots of upsets and great games.
