Re: Fallout 76

The copy I pre-ordered finally arrived yesterday so I'm downloading it now. It's 50 GB though and I hear there are some huuuuge patches that need to be downloaded before it can be played.

Re: M 6.7 earthquake 7.0 mi. NNW Anchorage, Alaska

Yeah, I'll definitely have to stock up going forward. :lol:

On the other hand, I work at a health clinic so maybe I could swipe one. Probably shouldn't, as I don't want to have to explain to people that I was fired for embezzling Pampers.

The septic system at work broke during the earthquake, so today has been an interesting conflict between my need for coffee and me not wanting to poop my pants. :lol:

The local gas station is letting people know that they think they will run out of gas soon, and with the road impassable it might be a while before they can get any more.

Every time I went to get into the shower this morning there would be an aftershock that would scare me out of it. I didn't want to be wet and naked if things started coming down around me. :lol:

Re: M 6.7 earthquake 7.0 mi. NNW Anchorage, Alaska

It was a real shaker. The worst I can remember since a pair of earthquakes about fifteen years ago.

Some damage to roads and buildings. Lots of power outages and 911 doesn't work in my area. Thankfully so far no reports of deaths or serious injuries.

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

I've got a bolt-action rifle that I have setup for target shooting in the winter. I was thinking about going full-derp and giving it a winter camo paint job. This would be for fun, since I pretty much just use this rifle for target shooting and not anything practical. I skimmed through a couple arti...

Re: A story a failure regarding a chicken-killing dog

The practice thing I definitely need to address. I moved to a place where I could easily shoot every day in the summer, and every weekend in the winter. I just got busy with other parts of my life, and I actually practice far less often than when it was a big PITA to do so. I don't normally carry (o...

A story a failure regarding a chicken-killing dog

A dog killed a couple of my chickens today, and I failed in numerous ways trying to deal with it. I had just sat down to watch a video on my phone, when I hear a chicken squawk. I look out the window and there's a yellow dog chasing it. I jump up and grab my trusty single-shot shotgun that's near th...

Re: Fallout 76

The "Power Armor Edition" (collector's edition with the helmet and map) also comes with 24 miniatures (would be cool for tabletop RPGs) and access to the beta. It's $200 though. :shock: I got collector's editions of Fallout 3, New Vegas and Fallout 4. I think I'm going to have to pass this time, as ...

Re: Fallout 76

She's right that they said the game is four time the size of Fallout 4 (I'm not sure if theat's referring only to map size, or to other content as well). They said the game can be played single player, but also can be played with up to twelve other people. It's going to be all online. The game is se...

I'm watching the live stream right now. I'm thinking that I'm making a mistake, as it looks like this is going to be maybe 10% content and 90% weird marketing. Why am I watching Andrew WK?

A hawk got one of my chickens the other day. I was showing a relative how to use my single shot shotgun (simplest long gun I own) and I noticed it doesn't have a safety transfer bar. :? Oh well, I just won't go hiking with the action closed. I moved into a barn for the summer. The doors aren't the m...

Re: Fallout 76

I think an MMO that was part way between a normal Fallout game and something like DayZ would be really fun.

An MMO might be what we get, since that is what Bethesda is doing with TES Online to fill time in between main games in the series.

A new Fallout got teased by Bethesda a little while ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ye84Zrqndo I'm pretty excited. Rumors and speculation have been crazy, but Bethesda is supposed to be giving a presentation on what the game is going to be tomorrow. I'm hoping it will be to Fallout 4 what New V...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

I'm in the same boat, quazi. I have no real use for one other than a range toy, but I still want one. If someone wants to get in on 10mm, they are on the economical side of things. :) I haven't purchased much more than maybe 100rds of factory ammo so I cant say much for this. However, reloading it ...

There are some dangerous critters in this area, but not as scary as the ones in Africa. Earlier this week I was getting ready to go to work when one of our vendors called.

Re: Props to Damato Custom Stippling...and now a matching sl

I was thinking about it, and while I'm pretty sure I don't have the talent for a nice looking stippling I do think I could probably take the finger grooves off with a belt sander and not have it turn out looking like garbage with no resale value.
