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

On the bright side, they are handing out the replacement bags, I got mine at the price of my personal details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXezTpiGPYc

While the game is better, it's not good. It can't really ever be good, because the game is flawed at its core. They're adding NPCs and quests, so that might give it something for players to care about but somehow, I doubt that it'll work at this point.

I also have no interest in taking up another live service, the only ones that I can stomach are the Warner Bros fighting game ones (Injustice and Mortal Kombat) and the rest are just awful.

I played it for a while with my brother. Was mildly entertaining, but not really Fallout, imho. I'm not bothering with the battle royale. I'm waiting for the new Borderlands instead.

While I have some interest in the game, I don't want to support a company who thinks they can half-ass a multiplayer game, charge early adopters full price, release it as a broken mess, and be unclear about how refunds work. Then attempt patch it to a functional state, and give it away a year later to increase player count. This was the biggest fumble of the past year.

Also the "SPECIAL edition buyers get a canvasbag, oh wait you don't we lied haha our bad! blame the marketing team" made me pretty upset.

I was not able to try the B.E.T.A. and am just now trying it during the free trial. So far I've made it to lv 11 or 12 but I'm enjoying my trek through West Virginia! People tend to be incredibly friendly but I acknowledge there's still some design problems to iron out. While I don't personally mind the hunger and thirst function, it feels...kinda pointless being that death isn't permanent and you're in a multiplayer scenario. As for the lack of NPCs, you don't seem to notice immediately- or at least I didn't as I was taking in the sights- but it becomes pretty clear shortly after you leave the early areas.

I know they're adding NPCs with the Wastelanders update and making it lore friendly but I think it shows that Fallout 76 should have probably launched that way. Not going to knock them for trying it though I think the 24 player map limitation was a little low and they probably should have made the player driven vendors/etc a launch feature or be able to "buy" and clear out locations for settlements or something. Still a number of bugs but these things don't tend to bother me as much as I've not run into anything that causes a loss/lack of progression or something game ending. I'm hoping the Wastelanders update really injects that oomph it needs for longevity and that they keep taking feedback like they have been even among the SCORCHing criticism. I can see myself wandering the wasteland and rooting out all the holo-tapes, notes, and just generally exploring but I don't think it'd hold me for too long without an update like that or something similar, so I'm hinging my long term investment and possible purchase on that.

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?"

I'm currently saving to get a place with my girlfriend. I have more hours at work, more responsibility.

Not exactly been feeling great with it, I have been blaming the change in routine but I'd say there is more to it.
Spending a lot more time with the refuser kids, just sitting in silence as an ornament as they do their best to test my patience.

I feel bitter, all the time. It's not good, not for me or anyone. Head's like thorns, twisting and sinking into my brain.

It kind of reminds me of how things were, five years ago. I hope it passes soon.

Congrats on the promotion at work.

I would live by yourself for at least a year before you cohabitate, if you haven't yet. I never lived with a significant other, but I did live with my best friend and a platonic girl last year, and both were challenging. Living with someone you have a relationship with can be fun, but is harder than it sounds, and really stresses things. Chances are, she will notice every tiny mess you make, so you'd better keep the home completely spotless.

I don't mean to sound like a downer, but job issues don't just pass on their own, in my experience. You should try to figure out the root cause(s) of your frustration and change those. My partner works in child care, and its indeed tough.

Thanks, this was actually quite uplifting. :)
The job's gotten a bit better, since I've been given more meaningful work and I've gotten used to the hours.

As far as living with with my girlfriend goes, I think it would be preferable to living on my own. I have mild insolophobia, so I'm not sure how well living on my own would go. My girlfriend isn't that uptight, when it comes to keeping the house straight.

I hope that having my own space will make organization easier. I'll be able to organize better, if I have more control of my own space.

Probably just wishful thinking on my part. :>

(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.

Thats awesome Hoopy! Our traffic is not nearly as bad as Chicago's, but I feel environmentally responsible when taking the train. Ironically, its also liberating to not rely on my car to get me to work, and mostly use it for pleasure and not commuting. We have a fatal shooting every month or two on the train, we had one yesterday, so I do wish it felt safer.

Fallout 76:  The suck that keeps on sucking.

Such a shame. I still haven't played it, really seemed like a half-baked idea from the start.

Heres an entertaining video about the failure of FO76. Its 28 mins long, but totally worth watching through.
