  1. Fallout 4 — Boston Makes Me Feel Good

    Hey all, my wife and I started playing through this recently and she's loving the settlement building stuff - but the UI is truly atrocious for laying out buildings. Does anyone have any recommendations on mods that make that part a little easier?
  2. Endorsements from Thumbs Readers

    New Firefox requires all extensions to be signed, its super annoying.
  3. Oh man, excited to check that out today! I love the new hires, they seem to have been fitting in super well. I love the Vinny Abby duo, it makes for high intensity podcasting hah.
  4. U.S. Healthcare Reform

    Yeah, I don't know he definitely has his hands dirty on this one - thankfully he did vote 'No' on it though. This whole thing has been a total mess, Trump's Reality TV reality is seeping in here.
  5. Yeah, I know his tone can be a little off putting but I appreciate the open nature and candor Alex and Dan have had with their person struggles with Anxiety and Depression, it's actually made accepting my own easier and giving me the strength to talk about it to family, friends, etc. I think it has actually kind of helped remove some of the stigma for me weirdly enough. I think SAM has hit the nail on the head of my own feelings on the situation in his previous posts.

  7. The McElroy Family of Products

    Yeah, it sounds like they were probably given prompts a little bit ahead of time - that still seems like a nightmare. It looks like they are announcing a whole bunch of new MBMBAMand TAZ dates and the ticket sales go live on Friday. Will definitely hit up the Chicago date, I might actually try to drive down to TN to go see TaZ live.
  8. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    If I'm being honest, I kind of think everything outside playing the game itself is pretty...bad. Obviously it has great game-play, character design, music, etc but when it comes to UI, user experience, and actually playing online with friends I feel like its a misstep at every turn. It oddly enough mirrors my thoughts on Battlefield 1; it's fun to play but it shouldn't be this hard to get into a match with friends and shoot dudes/ink. The way the online friend system works for me goes like this: "Oh hey, miffy is on, I'll hop in his game!" *wait a few minutes to get into the match* "Oh crap, I forgot to swap out my weapon/clothing" *hop out of game and fix it* "Oh hey, miffy is on, I'll hop in his game!" *wait a few minutes to get into the match and then matches on to enemy team*
  9. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    Hey! I actually joined up on the game from the 'online friends' menu. it's dumb it wouldn't put us up on the same team, but yeah you kicked my butt
  10. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I'm going to do some testing with my headset, maybe I can plug it into my phone and just use Discord as well. I'll give the app a proper go of it tonight, but not being able to lock my phone while its going seems like a pretty poor design hah.
  11. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    True, it just seems like an odd choice Oh man, this would be awesome!
  12. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    Hm, I've been under the impression that its only online during certain event windows (ala SplatFest). Here's a snippet from polygon's review:
  13. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    It shares 4 gig of ram between CPU and GPU, I would assume they would want to keep their Switch OS as light as possible so they don't fall into the same trap as Xbox and Sony and need to reserve large swathes of ram for just the OS functionality. I'm not saying it couldn't handle processing it, but I could see why they would want to leverage a device everyone already carries on them to offload some of that if they thought they could get away with it. It's a pretty dumb setup either way, hah.
  14. Splatoon is Ink-redible

    Well, 3 of my buddies picked it up so I caved. Hit me up for some multiplayer. Also, it's bonkers that Salmon Run is pretty much local only - how is that not just an online mode?
  15. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    The online Switch stuff is just...bad. I actually think its been kind of a detriment to my enjoyment of Mario Kart, I hate the lobby system. I hate having to try to organize this stuff over text/Discord. I understand they are probably using an external app because they can't afford to dedicate resources on the Switch - people forget it's a $200 tablet at its core- but man, the app sounds like a shit show.
  16. Diablo III BattleTags

    I was thinking about hopping back in, hit me up! YoThatLimp#1166
  17. Painting tabletop miniatures

    Wow wow wow, those are so cleanly done, nice job!
  18. So I know we have a few DMs here who use Roll20 - do you guys have any tips to make Roll20 easier to use? I'm running a pretty improv heavy 5e game and it's sometimes difficult to get things to go smoothly. When I have time to set up set piece encounters with nice maps and tokens it's great, but sometimes it just feels pretty clunky. I've been trying to incorporate more Theater of the Mind into my game but figured I'd check in with the experts.
  19. Banner Saga 2 - Now with Dysentery!

    Yeah there is definitely a few characters alive that definitely weren't at the end of my BS1 play through. I'm in the back half of BS2 and there are some interesting splits happening. Same! I think the UI is rough around the edges but I have really enjoyed my time with the series.
  20. The Witcher 3: What Geralt Wants

    Yeah, it makes sense- I still didn't like it Good writing overall though, maybe not a lot of subtle but it's nice there was a bit of choice there. I generally don't like romance/sex in games, but it's fun they kind of force the choice on you before the end of game. Agreed!
  21. The Witcher 3: What Geralt Wants

    Yenn was kind of a butthole in 3 though, she was constantly negging Geralt through 3. I didn't make a choice, and ended up getting a pretty great scene but ended those threads pretty poorly.
