I had fun settin up my mods for it.  The MGE (M'wind Graphics Extender) is a must.  Visual improvements to NPC's and terrain etc. can bring it closer to modern standards.  (Cool weather & sound mods as well.)

But for me it's not about the pure graphics (which cannot compete with Skyrim), so much as the environment, quests, characters, lore, and purer RPG gameplay (which still imho surpasses both of the later Elder Scrolls games.)  It's just a place I want to explore around in, and soak up the atmosphere ..even though it keeps crushing my weak-ass elf.


Zeebo! Sorry that I don't have a video game related reply.  Just wanted to say Hi and wish you a Happy New Year!

I'm still in the middle of my first Fallout 4 play through (I added a nice few mods) and still going through The Witcher 3 for the first time.
How do you like Witcher 3? Any negative press I've read about Fallout 4 has been quick to mention Witcher 3 and how cohesive of a game it is. A colleague at work even said that Witcher picks up on the stuff that Fallout seems to miss.

I have a few extra holiday bucks and was wondering if this could be something for when I want a break from Fallout.

Witcher 3 wasn't bad but there is a lot of , not that you have to do it, tedious side quests ...least i found them that way...

Watching awesome Games Done Quick on Twitch with my kids & enjoying all the speed runs. Played many of these games with the kids multiple times when they were much younger, especially Super Mario Kart. Will be spending the next few hours watching a Super Mario 64 race for all 120 stars!

Can anybody tell what the true cost of those "download and play for free games" is? Common sense dictates that game makers cannot stay in business giving shit away, so is it to gain access to our personal info, sell it to spam artists, or make us buy things later... A couple have my interest but with all the scams out here, I be scared...

A lot of the "free to play" games get their money from microtransactions. This means charging you for access to new characters, levels, or in-game currency. Microtransactions piss me off.

As for some other "free" games- sometimes they display ad banners and get revenue from that. It's also feasible that they spy on you or sell your data, depending on their own ethics.

Thank you... pretty much what I thought. Wish more folks would notice the tragic loss of personal and professional ethics since we all became only avatars and screen names. If businesses had to look actual people in the eyes before they abused them, it could bring back a trusted handshake instead of accepting a 20 page agreement..

there's gamers that play these games "pure" though.  Hence the term "gemmers" used in certain games to denote the players that have actually spent real money on upgrades/whatever.  in clash of clans and dungeon boss it's gems.  I play them both.

you can play for free... but chances are eventually you may think to yourself.... "ahhhh man that new whaddevadafuk would be soo cool to have"

what kind of a game were you looking into or thinking about playing?

yeah, I guess it depends on the quality of the game or the ethics of the company- but some games make it really hard to get anywhere without spending money. I'm sure there are some great games you can just grind through for free. Count me as someone who likes the old-school "pay once" model more.  :)

I'm digging the hedgehog meme lately. If I'm not mistaken it was you who linked to that adorable Facebook video last night.  ;)

Heilige sheisse! 27 is a lot of mouths to feed. I hate how useless settlers are. They can't defend the damn settlements (you always have to step in), you have to tell them what to do, and they just piddle around otherwise.

Of course, it's still pretty fun to be able to build a badass tower for my power armor suits, bobbleheads, and magazines.

If you side with the Railroad, you get to take out the BoS and then the Institute. Wiping out the BoS is fun because there's plenty of Power Armor pieces laying around.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is the best game I have every played.  That's my recommendation.
