Well, for the first time ever, Smart Post did not completely suck and my packaged arrived ahead of time.
The quality of the components is really impressive, and frankly, a little daunting. Iíve been painting the miniatures for some of my other games and have been very happy with the results but the difference in quality is really night and day.
One last thing, check the bottom of your shipping box before you throw it away. Mine had a poster print of the box cover, ready for framing/hanging.
One thing to take advantage of with shotguns is that if you hold Ctrl before you take your shot you can adjust the cone of fire. Also, in true Fallout fashion, when using a burst weapon, aim for the enemy in back of your target and you are almost guaranteed to hit the one in front.

Thanks; that might be the issue. I thought I talked to everyone in that room but I may have missed him since there are a lot of generic NPCís in the room.
Yeah, let me know...
Spoiler for Hiden:
what medical services he offers? I mean, if we can go back to Ag Center Pool and get free healing, it would be worth re-visiting there now and then I think. If he's just medical items vendor, maybe not.
Just found out the package is shipping ďsmart postĒ for the rest of the trip.
For those that donít know, this means they replace the good turtle with one that is really dumb, get it horribly drunk, then hit it in the head with a shovel a few times for good measure. After which they strap it to a catapult and launch it in your general vicinity. Results vary.

AG center location question
Spoiler for Hiden:
Iíve completed all the quests in the area but I canít seem to find the clinic. The doctor said he would be able to heal me there after I rescued him. Can anyone tell me where he is in the base?
Spoiler for Hiden:
If you mean the female doctor who gives you the serum cure to put in the reservoir (curing the squad's infection), she and the guy in the wheel chair are in the EAST wing off the main complex (east from the initial entrance.
I think 1st or 2nd door on the right.
I do wish we could manually mark areas on the local map once we discover them.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Looking for the guy who is supposed to heal you (damage) for free actually. You rescue him from the cage in the big field.
A month or two ago they should have come forward and said that feature x, y and z are not attainable with the current engine and would require more money and development time than is currently in the budget. They will instead focus on features A and B, which are more essential to the experience and if funding picks up, they will revisit the other features at a later time.
Iím reserving judgment. Almost all games are forced to cut out features before launch. Early access just gives people a backdoor look into the process.
I also think people may have been expecting too much. Double Fine makes fun games but I would not say they are known for depth in their gameplay. SpaceBase was never going to be Dwarf Fortress and even expecting Evil Genius levels of complexity might have been pushing it.
All that said, the ďfinalĒ product may still be crap, but I think it should be judged on what it is as opposed to what it could have been.

So folks who REALLY wanna wait until it's "done" might need to wait for some hotfixes. Though by the time you reach the California content (maybe 20-30 hours), maybe they'll have issued some patches by then.
If I recall correctly, Fallout 2 had numerous bugs that would break the game outright on release, so this is just par for the course.

Mine hasn't been shipped yet, but I'm in no real hurry.
Mine might have shipped faster but you still might get it before me. I chose the free shipping option and the delivery estimate is the 26th. Apparently they strapped the box to a turtle and itís walking its way here from Tennessee.
Iíve never played a Dynasty Warriors game so I expect to pick this up at some point. Most of the reviews have actually been pretty positive with a couple exceptions that just seem to hate the DW formula.
By the way. Since people might be interested in what has become of MC since it first arrived, I invite you to our server. This is a Tekkit server and lets you do things you canít in the normal game, like build space ships, nuclear power plants, and take part in interplanetary travel.
I've spent a grand total of $5 on the game. (Mostly to get Gelbin)
Also, was he a priest? I have a golden mind vision that always gives me a gold version of the enemy cards when I use it. May explain some of them. I am one of the few people who knows what a Gold Coin card looks like.
Rank doesnít mean much when it resets monthly. My Priest deck is about 1/3 golds and I usually only play until my daily challenges run out. Donít forget that you get gold backs for simply leveling up heroes.
Iíve actually made the same observation about it seeming harder to get past the early ranks. I think itís the unfortunate fact that a lot of people will just look up a really strong cheap deck online and use that. Takes a lot of fun of making a deck out of the equation and makes it all about random draw order.

Xenoblade Chronicles is likely to be an anomaly instead of the norm since developers will not want to limit their install base. In that way, it will be an upgrade that is nice to have instead of something that is mandatory.
Except now developers not only have more system power to use, but a second analog stick built in, AND an extra pair of L and R buttons.
So either all the functions will get used, and alienate the old users, or none of the functions will get used, because the install base won't have the consoles.
This is EXACTLY like Kinect on the XB1 and 360. Not everybody will have one, so NOBODY will make a game that requires it.
I would hope we see things similar to Resident Evil on the 3DS, which had multiple control scheme options you could use in the option menu. One of which supported the 2nd analogue stick attachment.
The base 3DS also already has multiple graphics settings (in a sense) when you consider many games drop in frame rate if you try to play with 3D enabled. The new processor may just mean that you will be able to leave the 3D on AND keep your smooth frame rate.
PCís have multiple control and graphics options, why shouldnít console games?

This is going to bomb and going to bomb hard.
My guess is that they will recall the old models in stores and start to only sell the new ones similarly to what they did with the non-premium WiiU’s. The original press release really only noted that the eShop and browser would benefit from the extra processor power anyways. Xenoblade Chronicles is likely to be an anomaly instead of the norm since developers will not want to limit their install base. In that way, it will be an upgrade that is nice to have instead of something that is mandatory.
As someone who purchased the original 3DS on launch, but not the XL, I am very happy to pick this upgrade up once it comes out.
