Unwashed Village / Re: Getting The Gang Back Together For 76?

I never played 76 so I doubt I'll get this version, either. Even if it is better.

Bethesda should just give the Fallout Universe back to Obsidian. (I.e. the guys formerly of Interplay's Black Isle Studios who made the first two Fallouts and got a license from Bethesda to make Fallout:  New Vegas).

Obsidian actually knows how to craft engaging worlds with interesting people.

The game I'm most excited about getting is Disco Elysium.

Granted, I'm waiting for it to come down in price.

I don't spend more than $20 on a game these days. Mainly because I have so many games in my various libraries that I will never have time to play them all anyway.

Heck, usually I won't spring for a game until it's $15 or less, and that's only for the really good games.

Assuming we actually make it through this year.

Not surprised it's good.

Outer Worlds is Obisidian. Obsidian are an offshoot of Interplay (Black Isle Studios division). The people who founded it are the same ones who made Fallout 1, and while they left before Fallout 2 was finished, worked on the team that did FO2 for about 90% of the production (some of those on the team for FO2 that stayed on with Interplay through the release would later join Obsidian when Interplay folded).

They also were the studio that made Fallout:  New Vegas, having licensed the FO3 engine. And FO:  NV is considered the best of the modern Fallouts.

Obsidian really is one of the best gaming companies out there.

Even the swag was full of fail.

Ziggy, is your signature line a Kirby Krackle reference?

It's a sad state of affairs when Trump is a better alternative than a no-deal Brexit.

Apparently Fallout 76 is now free to play through June 17.

That announcement prompted someone at the Straight Dope message boards to quip:

"Have they patched it to the point that it's worth playing at that price?"

(It feels great to commute by public transport, and I dislike driving to work everyday)

I hear you. My last workplace was 1.5 miles away. I walked to work and back every day. My current workplace is 2.3 miles away and my home is a couple blocks from one train station and my workplace is a block from another. I take the train in the morning and walk home in the afternoon.

I hope I never have to commute by car again. I did it for many years and hated every moment of it.

Pillars of Eternity 2:  Deadfire

Have you tried the turn based mod already? Is it any good?

Nope. Haven't tried. I'm currently working my way through Deus Ex:  Mankind Divided and Subnautica.

Subnautica is really as good as everyone says it is.

We don't even get "cover my body in chocolate and wait for you naked on the bed"-level of hints.

It makes washing the sheets a bitch.

"A hapless 20-something is forced to flee the city and hide out with a tribe of hippies after witnessing a brutal murder by a gang of criminal hairdressers."

I need to find this movie - solely to learn what a gang of criminal hairdressers is.

I had the same thought.
