Unwashed Village / Re: What's going on in your life?

Things are still going pretty good:

That relationship didn't work out. I got dumped in July. I didn't love her, but I DID expect it to last longer. Is that selfish?
The "stable job" I talked about in May was actually a temp position they had been dragging me along for 6 months. "We're gonna keep you on for another 2 weeks" every 2 weeks. Eventually I got permanently hired as a dispatcher, which I did for a month, but I wasn't ready for it, so they moved me to Billing, which is fine. I still get experience in the field I want to work in. Really a PITA to get my foot in the door but I guess it usually is.
I still take the train to work and I love it. I generally only drive my car "for pleasure" and not commuting and its very liberating.
I've thought a lot about moving out of St. Louis over the past 2 years, to another medium sized city, and if given the opportunity I probably would.
IDK what it is about being 28 but a lot of people I went to HS with have gotten married this past year.

Heres a picture of my car, and of me when I was a toddler so you can enjoy the 90's nostalogia.

Thats good, I've heard good things and some bad (but mostly good!) things about this game.

I know Fallout: New Vegas is considered the best modern Fallout, an opinion which I don't necessarily share since it had a lot of the same jank as FO3.

After the absolute disaster that has been FO:76, the recent subpar classic Doom console ports, and Elder Scrolls: Blades,  I don't have a lot of confidence in Bethesda anymore. I'm "cautiously optimistic" about Elder Scrolls VI.

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.

Oh, I know. it's a shame that Bethesda didn't let them make the game that they wanted, with Fallout New Vegas but I imagine that monstrous supe world being impossible for the engine to run in a stable way.

"Hey... Wanna be in my Gang?"

For anyone umming and erring over this game, I'd highly recommend it.

It's so amazingly written, particularly in its satirical anti corporate themes, it has some truly endearing characters and it has a setting that I've fallen in love with almost as quickly as I did Fallout's.

On top of that, it's a legitimately good RPG, full of innovations (such as the slow time mechanic, natural and fluent companion dialogue, a perk and stat system that is all useful and can shape you into whatever kind of character you want) and a combat system that feels a lot like Bethesda's system but perfected.

In fact, that's how I'd describe Outer Worlds as a whole, like a perfected Bethesda game. It has a similar feel, in a lot of aspects, to Fallout: New Vegas but it's much better optimized and just better made all around.

Love it!  :-*

It's the normal one, though they're identical, so I'm not sure how that works as it's supposedly the hood thing inside it that's moldy. Maybe it's a bad batch?

Yeah, I don't really know WHY one has mold and not the other, but a bad batch seems like a reasonable explanation.

After days of shuffling around, I guess if you have the normal non painted version of the Power Armor helmet you should be good.

If you have like a red nuka cola painted one from Gamestop, then you may need to look into the issue.

I own the one with the Power Armour edition, that's supposedly safe.

I've worn it now, so I guess I'm basically screwed.
