How do you scrap junk?

You don't actively scrap junk, you just transfer it into storage. It gets "scrapped" as it is needed for builds and repairs.

Surprised.  6 pages of comments, for Fallout 4.  Who would have thought?
And.. A fair number are negative leaning. 

I think maybe because the game tends to lean towards the PC gamer due to the ability to mod. I also post on the Octopus Overlords PC Games forum and over there the FO4 thread is up to 46 pages.

I surprised myself by playing another six hours myself. I'm still running at 1280x720 on the PC to get 60fps, but it's not really a problem for me on my 24" monitor. The game was fun, although having a couple crash to desktops didn't help. As one reviewer said, this is the kind of game that after a while you pick up for an hour or two, but it's not really deep or intriguing. I'm happy with my decision to buy it, but I would have rather got it on sale in a couple of months when they have patched the major issues.

And the latest irritation is the periodic warning messages like these:

and then...

It needs the connection so it can upload your records, like longest motorcycle ride on one wheel or longest freefall. And it is constantly popping up messages like the one on the right of the screen:

Every time someone beats your record, you get a pop-up. Every time you set a record, you get a pop-up. And apparently you can't turn off these messages unless you turn off all HUD items.

And there is no way to make it go offline as an option.

That's it, I'm giving up till they fix some of this nonsense. I'm really recommending that folks pass on this till it's decently updated.

My game is performing pretty poorly on a 760 GTX, so I think I'll be lowering some graphics options.  I'm not willing to run resolution lower than my native 1920 x 1200, so I'm guessing anti-aliasing and some other fanciness will be going down a bit. 

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the game still looks pretty nice at 1280x720 on my native 1920x1200 monitor, but then I'm old and the eyesight is going anyway icon_wink
86  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1] Just Cause 3 on: December 01, 2015, 07:07:17 AM
I fiddled with the graphics settings and finally just went with what the game recommended:




You'll notice that I lowered my screen res to 1280x720. Well, at least it's a stable 60 fps now Roll Eyes
87  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1] Just Cause 3 on: December 01, 2015, 05:58:54 AM
OK, just put in a couple of hours on this and... well, it's different from Just Cause 2. It uses checkpoint saves with no option to have multiple saves, which you could do in JC2. I don't know how I feel about that.

Running on a PC, with these specs: Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 780 3GB, Win7 64bit, 480GB SSD main drive. Using the Steam FPS overlay, I had to tinker with the graphics settings to get a decent frame rate. Most of the time it's near 60, but driving or with a lot of action going on, it drops down, but no lower than 30. I might have to fiddle with the settings if it starts to bother me too much. Here are my current settings (click to enlarge):




Combat is easier than in JC2. Well, shooting individual soldiers is easier, but you start taking damage faster when being shot at, so stand up gunfights aren't worth it. Thankfully, with the new, better grapple system that allows multiple grappling, getting rid of enemy soldiers is as easy as grappling them, then attaching them to something else (a wall, another soldier, an explosive barrel) and triggering the grapple cable to retract.

Some folks have reported long load times, but I haven't seen it. Of course, between 16GB of RAM and an SSD, I'm probably pretty well off when it comes to loading all that detail.

One thing they have fixed since JC2; you don't need money anymore. In JC2 you had to pay for more ammo, guns, vehicles, everything. Now there is a system where you get supply drops of items which you have unlocked by progressing in the game and completing various races and other competitions. I'm not sure about how all of it works, but I did hate that money stuff in JC2.

Driving seems a bit sloppy compared to JC2, especially with motorbikes. Still, it's not unacceptable.

Two hours is pretty early in a game to give a comprehensive opinion, but here are my general impressions. This is not a deep game. Plot is paper thin, but I didn't go into it thinking it would be anything different. The general mayhem you can cause is a lot of fun and it's pretty much the core of the game. I haven't had any glitches so far, but there are reports of CTDs and clipping issues.

There have been some negative mainstream reviews, but they sound to me like the same folks who bad mouthed Mad Max because it wasn't Shakespeare.

Frankly, unless you're really (like me) a huge fan of JC2, I'd hold off and look at some reviews and impressions before committing. And be sure to look for specifics regarding your rig and the specs.

It appears that the game has just unlocked on Steam (East Coast USA). Sadly, I'm not going to be able to touch the computer for a couple more hours due to spousal obligation slywink. I did see a couple of reviews, one positive and one negative. Funny thing is, the items that one person loved is what the other person hated. I'll give the game a look later on.

Has anyone been taking their power armor off? There was one point where I got down to my last power core but then almost immediately found a batch of 4.

For me the question should be, has anyone used the power armor?  I only used it at the beginning of the game where they tell you to.  After that it sits in the first settlement, and since then I've been all man

I've used it for a couple of really tough missions near the coast, but otherwise I prefer to leave it off. It costs quite a lot of resources to repair. However, even the power armor skeleton is useful. I'm about 70 hours into the campaign and there have been missions that would have been a lot easier with the power armor, but so far I'm enjoying the challenge.

It seems there's not a thread for this game yet and it releases in five days. I've pre-ordered it through Steam, based upon what I've seen in previews and how much I enjoyed JC2. I know a lot of folks might be busy with Fallout 4 or other games and so haven't thought about JC3, so I'll give it a go and post my impressions here.

It's available for pre-load right now, a whopping 38.5GBs, and download is in progress.

I'm just guessing on the PS4 and XB1, but I'm assuming it's launching on those two platforms as well.
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1]Rainbow 6: Siege on: November 26, 2015, 09:28:58 PM
I played about an hour of the beta on the PC, first with several solo Tango Hunts, then in two games (best of four rounds, except will do a fifth round as a tie-breaker) of MP. Actually kind of fun. You face off as five versus five teams, one attacking, one defending. The attackers have a thirty second period at the start of a round to scout the location with little rolling cameras, which the defenders can destroy if they see them.

During this time the defenders can barricade doors, windows and some openings. They can lay down barbed wire, which acts to slow down the person and also makes noise, which tags the person to the other side. You can also set charges.

Once the combat starts, the attackers have five (I think it's always five) minutes to disarm the bomb or find  the biohazard weapon or whatever. The defenders can move around the location and in some cases (I don't know how this works) also leave and go outside a bit to slow down the attackers. The round plays out as the attackers try to find the objective and kill the defenders while the defenders try to avoid this.

Upgrades are available through experience (or buying DLC I think) that gives better weapons, cooler gadgets and pretty uniforms. Ultimately however, I don't know if it's got a long term appeal for me. It's kind of a one trick pony.

Take my various suits off all the time.   Really, only use them when assaulting a very hard target .  I have about 18 cores in various stages of use.   

I found the X-01 armor and havent removed it yet.  Got a bunch of cores and nuclear lvl 2 with the 50% increase in core life so I think im good for a while. 

I went about 80 hours in the game and hardly ever wore the suit. Then I came across a couple of quests where I absolutely needed it. However, having my normal armor on under the armor suit gave me too little weight margin, so I stored my non-suit armor and now just go around in the power suit. Underneath I wear a suit that give me +3 CHR and a hat that adds one more, so anything I think I'm going to be involved in any negotiating I leave the power armor and deal with the negotiations then it's back into the suit. I might at some point switch back when I'm back towards the center and northwest parts of the map where the power armor isn't necessary.

So I'm 85 hours in and haven't even begun to see the end of the gameplay. I'm at level 37 and I could see playing another 30-50 hours easy.

I picked it up on the sale as well. I installed and ran through the intro and got to the first real mission, but I'm saving it there till I get tired of Fallout 4. ACS looked pretty nice and ran smooth for me, but it's early days.

I've only used it for one mission, besides the default one outside the Museum in Concord. I've played 42 hours in-game and am at Level 22 and so far, on normal difficulty, it's possible to play without it. I'm saving those Fusion Cores and the upgraded suit for later.

Article from Rock, Paper, Shotgun: How Is Assassinís Creed Syndicateís PC Port?

Quote
Review code for the PC version of Assassinís Creed Syndicate [official site] activated this evening and Iíve spent the hours since playing through the opening sections and fiddling with various settings to see how it all holds together. In short, it runs beautifully and looks a treat. Details and early thoughts about my trip to the Big Smoke are below.

and...

Quote
No glitches yet, though. Again, this is all early days but the port certainly isnít an omnishambles. And, so far, the game is extremely promising to boot. Itís not a revolution by any means and if youíve played an Assassinís Creed game before, Iím not sure itís going to surprise. Itís probably fair to say itís unlikely to convert anyone who has played one of the series before and hasnít found anything to like, but if this is as lean and efficient a take on the formula as these first hours suggest, it might be a winner for the rest of us.
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Assassin's Creed Syndicate on: November 18, 2015, 02:28:04 AM
So Green Man Gaming just sent me an email and among the offers is 33% off the PC version of ACS, due out this Thursday. I was going to hold off till I saw some PC reviews, but saving $20 USD for a game I'm probably going to get anyway sounds decent. I do have a question for the folks playing it on console; how long in hours is the main campaign plus a reasonable number of side quests? Twenty hours, forty hours, or depends...?

Holy smokes, are people aware of this? Fallout 4 game-breaking bug discovered, can corrupt save files.

Quote
Bethesda's massive open-world games often come with caveats, with bugs, glitches and performance hitches being the most common trade-offs. We've known for a while now that Fallout 4 has performance disparities between consoles and PC, but now users have spotted a quest bug that will crash the game across all platforms.

The bug was first reported on the Bethsoft Forums a day after the game came out, and is repeatable across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. According to the post, the glitch is quite nebulous and hard to pinpoint. The most definite reports pinpoint the Monsignor Plaza and the C.I.T. Ruins as the exterior environments that trigger the crash, along with the Hunter/Hunted questline and some bits of the Boston After Dark quest path. Reports indicate that having the Nick Valentine quest Unlikely Valentine active will trigger the crash when visiting aforementioned areas.

Users are reporting various effects including simple crashes to desktop on PC and error messages on console, and even the more extreme corrupted saved data files. PC users are able to use Fallout 4's console commands to reset the affected quests via codes, so if you're having troubles be sure to scan the forum posts.

The bug seems to be pretty huge and has afflicted many users, who are sharing stories and trying to pinpoint the exact nature of the glitch. Hopefully Bethesda will step in with an official fix soon. For now be sure to check the forums as well as this handy troubleshooting checklist to attempt a fix.

The shooting is also good. I haven't used VATS at all and I used it extensively in Fallout 3 and a good 25% of the time in New Vegas.

Yup, I've been noticing this too. VATS comes in handy in certain situations, but otherwise it's playing very well as a FPS.

When I hit about ten hours in I was feeling very meh about the game, but now that I've hit about twenty hours I'm really enjoying it. However, I would say that part of a reason (maybe a big part of the reason) is the settlement activity. It gives a reason to go wandering around looking for fans and radios and other odd stuff.

I think I'm level 9, somewhere around a dozen hours in, and so far this game isn't really grabbing me.  I think at least partially because 90% of my time is just looting, worrying about loot, and emptying my bags.  

I don't particularly like the combat, it tends to feel bad whether I'm shooting something in real-time or using the VATS system.  It's like the worst feeling FPS in the world, so any time enemies show up I groan inwardly.

I also don't think that any of the base building stuff is very good, or has much of a point.

Right now I'm just hoping this can entertain me until Just Cause 3 comes out in a couple weeks, but so far it's barely doing the job.

I'm at twenty hours in game (24 according to Steam). I was feeling a bit like this at a dozen hours in. It does get better, with more complex quests.

I too am awaiting Just Cause 3 as well. I think I can stretch FO4 for three weeks.

2.3 hours in and I'm going to call it a night. No crashes, still running at a rock solid 60fps on my PC at what I think is the high video setting (I let the game set it at start). Hell, it looks great anyway. The Nvidia GeForce Experience app shows that I'm running some settings higher than optimal, some lower than optimal, but I haven't been thrilled with what that app does for me on other games so I'm not touching anything.

All the Workshop stuff is a bit confusing to me and of course I hate to build anything that uses resources I might need later on. And I've broken the last of my bobby pins  crybaby

I've played 48 minutes on the PC through Steam. Having avoided the previews and the sneak peaks and the spoilers, all I can say is that I'm very, very impressed.

The auto configuration set me to some nice graphics settings. According to the Steam overlay I stayed at a rock solid 60 fps, but I did see some slight stuttering at times. Nothing significant.

I went for a middle of the road SPECIAL setting, not wanting to commit myself too much in any one way:

Anno 2205 will also be coming out tomorrow for the PC.  Where previous Anno games expanded single maps with different climates or multiple layers, this one will be more about linking entirely distinct maps together into a linked economy.  It sounds a bit like what SimCity 2013 was trying to accomplish, except with much more stark differences between the zones and the intent that a single player will be running them all simultaneously.

I have enjoyed every new Anno game more than the preceding one, and I played something like 200 hours of Anno 2070 and its expansion.  Still, I have a busy enough week ahead that I'll be waiting on reviews rather than preloading.

Just FYI, I'm also thinking about this game, so I'm happy to see that Gaming Nexus gave it a 9.5:

Aside from the sea battles, Anno 2205 is, without a doubt, the best entry in the series yet. The combination of finely tuned city-building and economy-management gameplay make for an addictive experience that is impossible to put down.

Anno 2205 earns a high recommendation for city-building and economy-management enthusiasts. The game builds upon previous series installments by refining the gameplay to further improve its best elements. In particular, the addition of the Arctic and Moon environments provide the series' best-yet sandboxes for building cities. City-building fans can rejoice: Anno 2205 is the next game they need to pick up.

and then drive over to Borders Bookstore.

Borders...  crybaby crybaby crybaby crybaby crybaby

I miss them so. We had three in Orlando, but the Winter Park one was the best, having an awesome history section. They had me hooked by sending me a weekly coupon; I'd get 40% off on one book and buy two or three others on the logic that they might be gone by the time we came back over.

Still, I'm doing OK between BookMooch, PaperbackSwap and the Chamblin Bookmine in Jacksonville.

FYI - a bunch of people are streaming the game right now. IGN's stream is high quality: http://www.twitch.tv/ign

Tried watching the stream, probably my first time on Twitch. A couple of impressions.

- Get rid of the idiots in the lower right who are making it so I can't hear the damn stream

- Get rid of the idiots posting hate comments on the right.

Other than that, really enjoyed it! Tongue
