This will release only 2 days after the Fallout London mod. Is Bethesda trying to break them?

Pretty sure it was unintentional. The FOLO team reported awhile back they actually had some Devs from Bethesda assist them with the project. This came from upper mgmt.

YouTube TV was an amazing deal way back when it was $40/mo, even up to $50/mo.

But now it's not any cheaper than having cable internet/TV bundled together, and there isn't really any upside to it.


All streaming subs are getting to the point where they don't make sense.

Depending on where you live, it's still cheaper. I live in a rural area, and it is $120 a month for basic cable. Yes, you read that right. They can do that because they are the only cable service in the area. Don't even get me started on what they charge for cable internet. We had a telco expand fiber optic out here and it is much cheaper with faster speeds.

I'm still willing to pay for YTTV for now. When it gets close to our cost of cable, i'll cancel and go to streaming

Palworld is available on Gamepass.

Be aware that the Gamepass version is an older, buggier build than the Steam version. I've tried both. The Steam version is much improved. The Pal AI in the Gamepass version sucked, and they would constantly bug out when when performing tasks in my base. It sucks that Gamepass players are playing with an inferior version.
Are they going to patch the gamepass version? I get that they can't patch as quickly as on steam but is there any effort to have parity between the platforms of steam and gamepass?

The reason they mentioned the delay, in one of their posts, was due to awaiting MS certification for XBox. So it's supposed to be coming.

I was about to Subscribe for a month to play the Avatar game. Was that moved to the higher tier?

There used to be only one subscription with everything for $14.99. That is now $17.99, and they added a new $7.99 version with only older, standard editions of games (premium sub has the ultimate-whatevers with all DLC included).

I don't remember ever hearing of the price change. Just a few months ago, it was $14.99 when I subscribed to play and beat Assassin's Creed Mirage.

So what month will FO4 london get lawyered to death do you reckon? Im sure the soulless legal department will get wind of this and shut it down for some reason.

I had read or watched an update video some months or possibly years back that Bethesda blessed it and actually assisted in some parts. They also hired two of three modders on the team to come work for them. The dissenting person wanted to stay and finish the mod.

Good start, guess I should have been more clear.

What type of game is it? What's is closely related to for mechanics?

I've played Fallout 1,2,3 and Skyrimjob, and never played NV or 4. I figured this is an online only Fallout 3 but with server side monsters and stuff, I'm more interested in hearing what the setup is like, characters have skills to level, gear levels, fighting monsters is like health bars and you spam attacks like wow.. etc etc.

Pretty much like Fallout 3, NV, 4 in terms of mechanics. The only thing different besides skill upgrades (more on that later) is it's a survival game. You do have to eat/drink in the game. I'm not a big fan of those survival types of games but this isn't as bad as one would think. You can grow food and pump water at your camp, although it needs to be boiled to get rid of the radiation. Also, you will scavenge food/water/Nuka Cola/etc from various places and badies.

As for skill upgrades, there is a card system where you can "play cards" that will add certain benefits to your character...something to help your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. levels or skills you level up. That's also different too and not my favorite component since these are random and you don't get to build out your character the way you want, at least right away. Over time you will collect more. Weapons do degrade over time, so you need to repair them. You can do that at your camp or other people's camps. There are railroad stations around that have trader bots where you can buy/sell items.

I would recommend it if you liked Fallout 3. It's not connected to the Fallout 4 story, so you don't have to play it. Just know some of the mechanics are different from 3 if you remember that. Fallout 4 does have Survival mods that I know you can tweak to your liking or, like I do, don't install them at all!

Oh yeah, they also have microtransactions for decorations for your Camp. Not required. Sometimes you get free ones and I think you get some from the storyline but I haven't played The Pitt or Atlantic City yet. There are some microtransactions that may benefit people. The Pitt pack has a fusion core recharger (fusion cores are required to power the Power Armor) but from what I read, it's really not needed. I think you can buy card packs too but I never have.

So yeah, if you liked 3, you'll like 4 and 76. I would say get it on sale or play it via the XBox Gaming Pass to try it out first. But it will be noticeably different, however, the gameplay is pretty similar.

Can someone explain what exactly this game is? i just remember it was talked about as being bad on release but no idea what kind of game it actually is..

MMORPG is thrown around lots these days for games which are like DayZ type servers.

Have you played Fallout 3, NV, 4, or Skyrim? Pretty much like that (but Skyrim with guns). Open world, crafting, boss event, limited seasonal stuff type of game. You are given various tasks to complete, can go around on your own finding trouble and once finding nuclear launch codes, can set off a nuke at a location in West Virginia that irradiates and area and spawns high level baddies to defeat. So make sure you have good power armor and leveled up. In return you supposedly get good gear. I am around lvl 22 but haven't played in about a year or so but there have been many updates, including new "expeditions" to go on, such as Pittsburgh and recently, Atlantic City.

Crafting wise, you make Camps where you cook food, get water, etc. I haven't delved too much into that. But other players have made camps that have vending machines, and places to chill out at. There's also a PvP side of this but since I have played, I have never been shot at. The player base is very friendly. I have been given water in the past and I hear other players have received things like guns, ammo, food, among other things. I mostly played SP but my cousin who's much higher levelled would join me from time to time for coop.

Pretty much this in a nutshell. Again, I haven't played in a while but hoping to soon so I can check out Atlantic City.

Was watching the Juicehead video on the Skyrim mod store and it seems like it's better than before. For one, Bethesda Devs do all the QA so there is support. Anyone can submit mods and set a price for them. Seems much fairer than in the past. Idk if I would pick up any as I prefer Fallout 4 over Skyrim at the moment, but I am guessing the same store is coming to Fallout.

Hey, at least they're up front about it. They even warned everyone a week or two before release. I'm laughing at the comments on Steam re: people complaining about performance and "why was this even released?" Well, they posted it...how could you miss that??? But part of me thinks it was forced out by Paradox, just like Lamplighter's League was said to be.

I've always loved WW2 subs best. Be they German, British, US, or Japanese. They're the last great generation of subsurface fighting boats before subs became stealth ships.

I'm excited to play Victory at Sea Atlantic. I can't think of any game that has US-based subs/campaign in the Atlantic during WW2. VaS: Pacific is one of my fav games as is Silent Hunter 4.

If you ever get a chance to tour an old WW2 sub definitely take it. You can't get a good idea of just how claustrophobic it was until you go on one. Watching 'Das Boot' is the next best thing. Masterful film.

There's a WW2 sub in Cleveland, OH that I toured as a kid. Yes, it was cramped. I also grew up in SE North Carolina and toured the battleship, USS North Carolina. Even that one was cramped in various areas despite being large.

A lot of my shipmates were very proud of their jobs too, but I don't think many of them would tell you that it wasn't tedious most of the time. In fairness WW2 submarines were pre-nuclear and had much shorter deployments and surfaced much more to recharge the ship's batteries which probably lessened the tedium.

But either way, those guys made us look like pussies by comparison. Modern subs are like luxury liners compared to what bubbleheads in WW2 went to sea on.

Funny you mentioned luxury liners. I was unrated Airman, ship's company on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69). I remember hearing stories about how the modern-day subs that were the best things in the fleet, even better than the carrier I was on. Only thing I saw that was better was the Airforce base at Trieste, Italy when we ported there during the 94-95 Med cruise. My Dad who was an AE2 for a helo squadron and then went on to fly CH-46's in the Marines used to always blast the AF for having the best of everything. Of course, my stepdad (Marine Sergeant) came on the Ike during family day prior to our cruise and wouldn't stop teasing me about how nice we had it (on top of that, he took the liberty to tease me about being in the Navy too...often calling me a Squid. Had to remind him that I worked above the waterline and on the flight deck and squids don't have wings lol). I made sure to tell him that our CO had us up almost every night on the cruise doing GQ drills and the hell it was donning fire fighting equipment for my role during it. It certainly wasn't easy or always fun but those years were the best of my life

And also - has anyone found the "pause game" button yet? I mean every single-player game has had this and to me, it is very important to pause a game when the family needs help. But nope, no pause button. I guess I would pause the game for all the other players in my "single-player" game, too, if there was one.
Uhhh, there is a "Pause" button. It's called "T" Laugh2

I don't know what shit Blizz is talking, but the classes in D3 were never balanced. Some classes were very OP, while others plain sucked.
They still periodically tweaked them. I remember when a Necro set was very OP and then they nerfed it. Maxroll's website keeps a list of builds every season talking about what classes are good for top tier play and that one dropped pretty hard several seasons ago.
