Hi guys! So, it seems that this group still exist after all. Impressing! At this time I am working on a new Fallout Tactics mod and I wanted to share it with you. I want to create a special location with a reference to the Unwashed Village. It is almost done!

Greetings. And who might you be?

I snagged the Grand Theft Auto collection on Steam for cheap recently and have been playing GTA 3. Its one of those games that I have only dabbled in, but have been wanting to complete for a long time.

Its one of the most important 3D games of all time, but also has many flaws (you can't jump out of moving cars, there is no full in game map etc.). As a fan of the series, I started with GTA 2 and finished all the main 3D games. I'm mostly through, and definitely appreciate it as a stepping stone from 2D to 3D. Some things were brought over from the first 2 games, like the story focus on gangs fighting for control of the city, that aren't in the later games much if at all.

I was VERY impressed by GTA V at first, but could only get about half way through before getting tired of it. The characters were overly dramaticized, and the missions very drawn out while scolding you for failing. You compared this to GTA 3, where the player character has no dialogue, is never named in game (not a compliment though), and failing a mission just keeps the game going with no pause, giving you the choice to go back and restart if you want to or just drive off to do something else. As the series got more successful, it lost its arcady roots. Its like the difference between an 80 minute comedy and a 3 hour drama.


Also had been playing State of Decay 2 on Xbox. Its pretty neat. Like a combination of Fallout 3 and Dead Rising.

I need to read more. If anyone has any suggestions, ideally classic fiction thats easy to digest, let me know.

Discworld. If you haven't read it, start.

There are a lot of books, but it's well worth the effort to read them. I'm currently on the last book in the series The Shepherd's Crown. It was the last book Pratchett wrote before his death and was released posthumously by his daughter.

Aw crap. I forgot that we are in the age of multiple platforms. I'll be on Xbox.

Yeah, if I get this, it'll be for steam. I recently changed jobs and used my unused vacation to buy a sweet new gaming rig that Liz and I put togehter. (I wasn't planning on going for a GTX 1080 originally, but I was able to snag one for $615 (US) which put it pretty much the best deal I was going to find for a graphics card for the quality. (Fuck Ethereum in the ear!) And since I got a GPU that supported 4K, I naturally had to get a monitor that did so as well. So after paying more than I originally planned, I have a rig that can run pretty much any game out there at full graphics capability.

BTW, welcome back. I find it interesting that of the three of us posting in this thread, I'm the newest member of the UV.

Cyptocurrency or not, it sucks that graphics cards are still so expensive. I remember when a top end card was $500 in like 2006, back in the Golden Era of 3D PC gaming. I figured by now they'd be a lot cheaper.

I'll probably get it on Xbox One.

After living in a pretty small town of 15,000 people for the past 6 months, I moved back to my home city. I had no intention of staying. Small town life was pretty nice though, I could see myself moving to a different (nicer) small town if I could make money remotely. I liked the quietness, lack of traffic and being a 10 minute drive from rural nature.

Been seriously thinking a lot about starting a small company of my own, and finding ways to generate "passive income". I've known for a few years that I wasn't going to work for other people for the rest of my life. I feel like the only people anyone should really be working for are themselves and God.

I need to read more. If anyone has any suggestions, ideally classic fiction thats easy to digest, let me know.
