If I had to guess, I would say that Fallout will be just as moddable as Oblivion.

A better question might be if it HAS to be modded to make it fun to play slywink

I am looking forward to all the mods.

I always do too with Oblivion, but then it gets to a point I am in now. I would love to play again, but the number of mods is so overwhelming I don't know where to start. Plus the scaling mobs is kind of turning me off.

The entire hour fo the show was pre-empted by a severe weather alert... farkin crap, I don't care if there's a tornado on the ground, I want my survivor - we have sirens if the tornado gets close to me.

Last night was the first time I saw the emergency alert system change the channel on my cable box though, kinda neat. it wasn't a test!

They do that channel changing thing every 30 minutes here. Couple of weeks ago we were supposed to get 7-8 inches of snow so they did the warning for a good 6 hours. I was recording some soccer games and thankfully it goes back to recording whatever it was recording in the first place, but it cut the games to 30 minute blocks on the DVR. We only got an inch or two of snow too. I was thinking about calling to complain since the warnings are usually way overboard.

Anyway, CBS has the shows online to watch.

Really boring show last night, except for the end. I really like Ozzy, despite the fact that he has Amanda, but was glad to see him go just because I always like to see the cocky guy in control get booted. The end was great. Amanda looked like someone just died in front of her.

Oh and I heard the same thing as ATB said. Jeff doesn't see anything but the competitions and councils.

Great episode. South Park has been more miss than hit for me this season, but this one and Heavy Metal were instant classics.

And I was yelling at the TV, just unplug it! smile

I think we can thank the weak dollar for the price tag. 8800 Yen equals $86.52 today.

Interesting article about using the program for one week.

Part that worries me:

My balance is getting better, although I'm not losing weight. By today, I've figured out my main problem with Wii Fit. It's not that it weighs you every day, with the little on-screen Wii Board mascot constantly telling you in a chirpy asshole voice that you're "too fat!" It's that there's too much interstitial fluff in between the exercise.

This is supposed to be a convenient way for me to get exercise in the privacy of my own home, right? So why do I have to spend an entire hour with the thing just to get 30 minutes of aerobics? Why can't Wii Fit string together a series of exercises for me, without all the chit-chat from the announcer, without me having to pick up and put down the Wiimote constantly to cycle through screens?

One of the reviews I read somewhere said the board is just begging for a full skiing game, so I sure hope so.

Yeah the videos kind of put me off, but reading the reviews everyone seems to like it, so I pre-ordered. If nothing else it will make a nice weight tracking system while it encourages me to do things like push-ups. In other words it can't hurt and it might be fun.

I would agree, but I can't imagine trying to play Starcraft with a controller. A FPS you can get away with a controller, even if the mouse is far better. But for a RTS, it requires a mouse IMO.

The problem with bacon on burgers is that all the fast food joints use such poor bacon. Would you eat that bacon with your eggs for breakfast? Hell no. Go to the diners that use "real", thick, crispy bacon and it is nirvana.

Any bacon is better than no bacon... except canadian bacon.

Not sure about that. McDs bacon is almost completely tasteless. Jack-in-the-Box uses choice bacon.

...and the harder it is to get it to run on modern machines.  I still would like to try to play through the first two before the third comes out.

Actually Fallout 1 plays quite well on Vista. Well besides some funny colors sometimes, but if you alt tab a couple of times they go away. I hear you don't have that problem on XP. It does look bad full screen so I turned off scaleing so I have little box to play in, but it looks good.

2 has some music issues, but there is a fix for it.

I got the them for $20+ Tactics, through Overstock (GoGamer was sold out).
2653  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Our perception of Christianity influenced by Hollywood? on: April 15, 2008, 07:36:23 PM
Well I still think Hollywood accurately portrays Christians. Most Christians don't feel the need to talk about it, just like most characters never mention it. The guys who ask you within the first 5 minutes if Jesus Christ is your savior or hands out cards to strangers telling them how great Jesus is deserve to be mocked in Hollywood. But thankfully those kind of people are very uncommon in real life and in movies/TV shows.
2654  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Our perception of Christianity influenced by Hollywood? on: April 15, 2008, 03:11:41 PM
And still waiting for examples. Besides one movie and Ned Flanders. Heck Christians even have a movie coming out this week trying to fight back against their persecution in the science world and comparing people who believe in evolution to Nazis. Expelled. Of course the movie has already been torn apart so badly it's kind of embarrassing.

I saw There Will be Blood recently, and their is a rather important character who is a Christian in it. The were depicting a certain kind of person of the time though, not Christians in general and the movie makes that quite clear.

+1

I mean because of Ultimas are truly ancient, not because Fallout is a better game Daehawk. I played Fallout long ago, and while it is good, it's not Ultima IV in its prime.

Personally I like to play 6 7 7pt2 8...the rest are kinda meh.

Ulitma IV is the best RPG ever made, that is all. Tongue

Ultima V was pretty great too.

I have the Ult 1-5 box set, I loved all of them.  Ultima 3 was especially fun, since back in the day I found it too hard (it's kind of funny how going back to those games, they now seem too easy).

I tried to play III and VI in a tiny little dos box (I thought VI was a higher resolution than it is, either that or I had a Hercules card back in the day that doubled the resolution) and found the interface too annoying to really make a go of it. A very small map screen and archaic controls just take out the enjoyment for me despite the very fond memories I have of the games.

Interestingly I did find an OSX version of III that looks decent. I might try it out.

I just started Fallout 1, and it seems like it's going to be a lot more playable than the Ultimas.

I would like BK a lot more if they didn't nuke everything.

so the smoke coming from the top of the building is radiation?  damn, i thought they cooked their hamburgers. 

My best friend in HS worked in a BK, and if you are ever in one, you can seem them do it. They flame broil a bunch of burgers then put them a steamer to keep them warm. When you order it, they put it together and nuke it so the cheese melts and the bun is warm. This is why so often the buns are pretty soft and spongy. Never been to a BK that didn't nuke their burgers (and since they are always on AF bases I have been to BKs all over the world). This is why BK advertises to make it your way, because they don't have to cook a patty to make a burger like McDs does. McDs has too cook the meat, that is why they are always slower on special orders.

Do a search and a few places mention it.

Same here, I am getting the CE without a doubt. I am just hoping the manual is just as good as the original one. I am the process of re-reading Fallout 1's manual and it's very well done. I miss the days of great manuals like that.
