Wow! Great link. Tons of info and I love that it talks about the speed of the processor both in docked and undocked mode. Really gives some good insight into the system. My son (12) has been drooling over me playing Skyrim on the Xbone and his sister (14) playing the same on the 360, so seeing Skyrim coming to this is a definite bonus to him. He will be looking forward to having a system that will play Splatoon and Skyrim, along with all the Nintendo regulars.Thanks
No clubs are obtained for no money, not bought. The rules list them as costing 0gp because you can make or find one easily if you spend enough time to make an uneducated craft check. Looking around an area with wood...construction area, trash area, wooded area...for a bit will get you a usable club with a check. Without the check you have done the same thing but either in a rush, or you weren't knowledgeable on the harder woods, or you picked a badly shaped piece of wood that slips in the hand or is difficult to swing because the balance is crap. If you want to buy a fancier one in a store that is pretty then you can, and the DM can assign a cost or the PC can say "I want a nicer club, something that has a leather wrapped handle and some carvings on it" for 1+GP depending on their desire for fanciness. I constantly have people in my group asking for custom weapons that are less than masterwork but better then minimalist. They tell me how much they want to spend and what they want it to look like and I tell them if it's possible at that price.
I stopped posting a while back also...I was encountering harsher, ruder posts from people and it seemed like most threads lasted about 6-7 posts before someone was letting fly with some sort of viciousness. There is enough of that around in the real world so I didn't feel like hanging with it virtually. I drop on every couple days, look at a few posts, see if anything new is going on and very rarely post except on videogame or movie threads (they seemed the safest). Frequency has been declining again lately though.
How the heck can you even say $99 with a straight face for a console? The 3DS is more expensive by almost double and games are running $60 a pop. It makes it hard to respect your opinion if you are going to just spout nonsense.

The answer is simple. Hillary has these two things on her chest. Too many people those two things are not something that can be compatible with behavior we expect from the half of the human race which lacks those two things. Because when we see those two things on a person, a different set of perception filters slam into place so that the same behaviors trigger different responses.
I love that because I don't want to vote for a wholly corrupt politician that supports many policies that I hate and has made a career of lying, getting caught, and magically getting free, I MUST be sexist.How about this...I want a woman president, just not badly enough to compromise every single bit or morality I have. I don't support abortion, especially past the midway point, so I must hate women (guess my wife and most of my female friends do too). I don't like people that lose their ability to practice law due to corruption, so I hate women. I don't like that I can find numerous top 20 Clinton Scandal lists that have vastly different scandals on them, the majority of which are true, so I hate women.
I actually am holding hope that our first woman president isn't going to be an absolute embarrassment to the entire female population. So I won't vote for Hillary....and for the record I am not fond of Trump either. If I could I would vote for a "do over".
Cool, I was also thinking of the Lore-based load screens one and the Level-up messages...I like the feel of them. What does the Paarthurnax one add to the quest? Background and lore or does it add things to do in the quest?
Then what are the mods on Bethesda's page that I linked to in the second post? It looks like they are mods by modders, being provided through Bethesda to console users...Arthmoor, Hoon, Shezrie, Trainwiz...they are the creators listed under each mod and I see the mods listed as XB1, PS4, PC. So how is that not being provided by Bethesda? I get that the modders are making their mods compatible to the new game but it looks like completed mods are hosted by Bethesda for download, at least by the look of the site. Perhaps modders are going to be able to drop their mods anywhere for users to download but why wouldn't they stick with letting Bethesda host them? It doesn't look like Bethesda is charging.
There are hundreds of thousands of mods for PC and most of them are niche. There are some amazing ones but it will depend on player interest and gameplay style. It would be difficult to come up with a go-to list without knowing what you do and do not like about the vanilla game.
I was only looking for intel on the ones that are going to be released for the consoles. So far the list is on Bethesda's site in the link above. Any info on those is what I was asking about.
I only (lol) want congress and the house dismantled and remade so they have term limits and no life-time paycheck. Who is gonna do that? No one. If I go over budget I have to not eat or pay certain bills until I get more cash, why doesn't the government need to meet their budget and be balanced? Who is gonna change that? Honestly I know some say they would, but the real answer is no one. Our system is broken, the majority's opinion is not being acted on and our representatives all work for corporate best interests and not our own. Our FDA is corrupt, our CDC is corrupt, our EPA is corrupt, and every place we could turn to change the existing corruption is corrupt. Our system is broken. I can't see a way to fix it, can't even fathom how to start. We need to remove money from politics and remove corporate ownership of political figures, but what politician would want to remove wads of cash from his pockets.
Has anyone found a definitive list of what Mods are going to be available on the Xbox One version and the PS4 version? I am unconcerned with the PC version as they of course will be able to have all. Also any word on if they are going to come with the box or do we need to download them? Will there be a cost?
As long as I can still go to Dawnstar and raid the invisible Khajit chest near the mine I am fine....
Question: What faction missions do you need to do to be able to add armor bonuses to some clothes? I never came across that.
Still playing but my family is quickly losing interest without a means of finding Pokemon. I don't want the cheat tracking but something that let me know I was getting closer to the ones on my radar would work nice. Without that this game is going to continue to descend on our interest meter until I finally let it die. This issue and little crap like removing the Eevee naming trick easter egg are just disheartening...I mean who used the Eevee trick and totally broke the system? Did it really need to die?

I'm playing it and liking it. My only complaint is that it crashes way more often than I would like - like once a session, at least.
Yeah, and I seem to get a layering problem...like the clickable buttons sometimes show up below other cards so I don't see them or don't know what I am supposed to hit to either advance the turn or get the card into play....it does have some glitches. Still it seems good. I wish there was a better interface for assigning cards to the PCs. It is clunky and I don't get a good feel for the cards I do have.
I got the Hardcopy +PDF and the Pawns from Kobold and I love them. I really needed more critters to throw at the party. I do have a minor gripe but it is minor, I really dislike some of the oddball names. I really would have rather seen more names that people in a fantasy setting would give some of the real-world mythological creatures instead of bagiennik, fext, asanbosam, and the myriad of others. Some I can derive a good common-folk name for, like tree-ogres for asanbosam, but others I really would have liked to seen a more common-folk name up front and then the real-world mythos name in the description along with whether they were from Slavic, Norse, African, etc...mythos.
That said my complaint is very minor compared to how awesome having 400+critters is. Thanks guys. I would give a 4.5 out of 5.
In Jessica Jones they established that only his actual skin was unbreakable as they used his eye as a route to drain fluid from a brain injury. That would immediately tell me, if I was Luke Cage, that I need to protect the opening to my body. Mask that covers my mouth with bulletproof eye lenses or something would be necessary to me. I wouldn't be looking at tiaras and bracelets but I would be looking at not allowing my weakness to be found.
See that makes more sense to me....along with beds you build being safe from diseases. That would be how I want to play on the console.
I'm a bit fortunate in that I haven't got the DLC as of yet. Although what I've seen of both Mechanist & Wasteland Workshop means it is likely I will be picking them up soonish.
They are pretty cool and I imagine that the Robot Armor would be helpful in survival, I thinks it one of the better armors for Ballistic, and you get can the pieces without doing much of the Mechanist quests. Just take out a group of Rust Devils and you should get some decent stuff.The best things the DLC add though for me on a console is more stuff to build my bases better.
I believe a lot of it is about trying to get a product out in a timely manner. If I have to make the choice to wait several months longer for a game to have photo-realistic graphics or I can have it earlier with a step or two down thee graphics ladder, I am gonna probably choose to dine earlier. These games are made to hit a time-table, often revolving around some sort of holiday, for their releases. I really appreciate excellent graphics but I also want to not have years in between releases of the franchises I like because they want to have arm hair on the characters react to wind.
I really don't know what Society's decision on this would be but taking a -4 on all initiative checks, and all the other drawbacks is certainly going to be way worse then the occasional "You suffer no effects to the Command spell as you can't hear the command" is going to be a benefit. I feel like this is way more harmful to the PC then it would be beneficial. That said is it too harmful to allow in Society play because it hampers the PC so much as to be drag on the whole group's ability to meet challenges?
Yeah, I may just totally avoid survival mode...I never was a fan of playing when I can't save easily. I like the idea of diseases and parasites and managing the inventory better but I usually play in small spurts and if I have to sleep in order to save that is going to eliminate most of the times I can actually play as a decent mission can take more than an hour, especially if moving stealthily. I want to do it but all I am hearing about it makes me not even want to try it because I can't see me being able to work around the severely limited saving. It's a shame too, I like some of the ideas that I hear about Survival mode.
So I have started a couple games and after hitting level 4 or so decided that I wanted to go to someplace far away, like in one I ran cross-country for The Castle. Another one I headed straight down to the edge of the Big Bang Radiation Wasteland. Usually this involves me conserving energy and then sprinting from trouble anytime it shows up, unlocking locations as I run. Fighting at such low levels in such areas is usually suicide but once I get to where I want I now have access to it and can work on minor excursions in those areas to increase my safety zone. I had The Castle as a location by 6th level and cleared it by 7th so it was now a base.
Could someone do similar in survival mode or does it really negate that?
Finally....I finally got a really good weapon off of a Legendary Critter (mirelurk). An Exploding 10mm pistol, and early enough in the game that that is going to be my go-to weapon for a good long time. Currently does more than my fully tricked combat shotgun. What are the good silenced pistol perks I should get?
Ah, got it now...someone talking about getting a good stat through rolling is badwrongfun. I wish someone would just put a list together of all the badwrongfun so I can reference that and learn more on how to ridicule others for doing things on that list.

I would add in that one of the strains starts a breaking down the mental functions of the infected, reducing them to a predatory state with little cognitive function besides the need to feed....zombie apocalypse. The infection spreads easily but those with immunity or resistance are sought after to keep the disease from spreading beyond "The Barrier", a huge wall that sections off much of the southern US from the rest.
This is how I feel also. I love what is there and feel like for the $5 I have a good return just for the new building stuff.I haven't yet messed with the arena and cages but probably won't anyway. I don't really feel like having an arena is something I want to do. I do like the idea of catching a hundred or so cats and seeing if I can keep them in a certain settlement as my crazy cat place but I don't know if they will stick around or not. Anyone play with that?
and of course purified water. I stopped totally planting gourds, melons, or carrots...the others are too important for adhesive. I was roaming around with a companion in power armor and after a while I am suddenly low on adhesive, aluminum, steel....guess that repairing the 2 suits put quite a drain on certain resources. Funny thing is I have been roaming around almost constantly in power armor since level 4 or 5 and I am around 40 in this run and I have 25 full power cores. I only took the one level of finding ammo perk and nothing to extend their lives.It just stuck me as odd that it is so easy to be constantly suited up.
The unlimited leveling thing really hasn't been an issue to me in that I keep getting to around level 40 (have one guy who was 47 and around 4-5 others between level 27 and 45) and then I decide to just start over and try to build a different character. I mean I guess eventually they start becoming more alike but I haven't really felt the need to do everything in the game with one character. I tend to do storylines that pertain to who I am in that character an ignore other storylines that wouldn't interest that person in my mind.
On the DLC, I am totally ageeing with you. I can't wait to get it really rolling and such. I also dumped strength but not as much as you did so it hasn't been too hard to build up. I do like that I can have a companion that is good at lockpicking or hacking so I don't have to level both up always.

Wow, he looks really cool! I am gonna have to take him to lead into the Automatron run I just started...fits with my concept of an ex-army robotics expert to have a cool robotic companion from the start and to be able to upgrade like that is pretty sweet.Hey Turin, I was looking through some other stuff and saw you had a bunch of Scavenger Stations in Starlight...what is the mechanic of Scavenger Stations? Do they pull in a certain amount of junk for you? I've never read or seen any stats for what they do so I haven't put much effort into them, do they keep your supplies up or what?
