Well, this is okay arcade shooter with some perks. Problem is this good "fallout" game? Well, this is not fallout and clearly not and RPG even. This just modern bethesda openworld where they just put "THIS IS THINGS YOU KNOW FROM PAST" and sell it to everyone. I say that I get bored of it after 1 hour "introduction" and I clearly have a ton more awesome things to do than spend my time in another modern opeworld. I also was sad that they compleatly dropped Adamovich's style - espessialy his concept for Fallout 3 was one of the most brilliant artistic interpretations of Atompunk mixed with retrofuturism mixed with post arocalypse but still have it's own originaltiy, rather than "just put things and memes from past". In fallout 76 they even put as cars some 70s soviet trucks and don't give a shit, same as they don't give a shit about any "lore" or crating new interesting ideas.

> I start to consider games to have fundamental flaws that impact the game's intended gameplay, rather than just my personal preferences.

I don't like systems where you put low score only on bad technically games or something. Games from different categories and budget, same as movies can't be marked equaly. I don't like when people give score to something just because "it works". Of cource it works, bethesda put millions and millions of dollars in it.

Oh my, 1C publishing this game, why lol
However, there released new demo with new level and it have compleatly different style than 1st level. If all game be like that - it'd be truley awesome classic-style build engine fps game. Finnaly, some high quality "classic" fps - after so many below mediacore indie crap like dusk or project warlock.

They changed the art direction. It's something I can live with, and while bits of it are kind of dumb, there have always been dumb things in Fallout, even in the original. Would I have preferred it to be something different, sure. Does it completely destroy any entertainment value? Not for me at least. That said, I don't go into Fallout looking for a stimulating experience, even the isometric ones weren't exactly thought provoking. I've also read 400 page RPGs with simpler leveling systems, so it not being complex enough isn't really a strike against it. Thinking on it, it's even quite similar to the FFG narrative system which is a very popular and well-regarded RPG system.

It's also not giving points because it works, but giving it points because what is there does what it's meant to do. They stripped out skills affecting damage and made it equipment based which is actually pretty common in paper. Going back to GURPS again, the only weapon that is affected by stats are muscle-powered weapons that add damage to ST-derived basic damage. Weapon skills are meant to account for how well you can aim and counter recoil etc. since there is no way to simulate that with imagination. In a game that's trying to smooth out what's been a lacklustre first-person element, it's a pretty logical step. Whether it's my personal preference is irrelevant here. The fact is that the underlying systems do what they're meant to do in support of what the game is attempting to accomplish. Compare it to the FPS parts of Fallout 3 which were horrendous and if anything detracted from the experience. That's an element that doesn't act in support of its design, and was somewhat fixed in New Vegas. My personal opinion is that mixing the cleaner hitboxes and smoother shooter aspects of F4 with the skill system of New Vegas would have been better, but that's not what the game is, so I have to work with what I have. Likewise, I'm not going to detract points for it being different from previous games. I might comment on things that they did better in the past, but I'm looking at it as an individual game, not as an entire series. Were I doing a small review of the entire series, the rating would probably be different.

Well for me Fallout 4 not BAD game if we talk about "bad game=unplayable mess" but I don't say it in any way entertainment
Again what I said - original Fallout was done by small team of people with basicly minimal budget and concretic goals - and what what it is do a concretic experience, and whole game was done to fullfill this concretic experience - maximum depressing post-apocalypse horror that in right proportion use all historical stereotypes of it to give concretic stylistic picture of it, and gameplay-wise it was awesome simulation of kind of tabletop session with good gamemaster. Actual limited, but "alive" world that works exeacly what it need to be.

Fallout 4 is just modern "adventure" FPS in openworld did with trillions budget. This game has nothing to do with atmosphere, goals and ideas that had Fallout 1, same with gameplay. This is just modern company using famous trademark and famous words like "supermutants" and "brotherhood of still" just to earn money. Without this "trademark" words this is just another crappy openworld adventure FPS like Far Cry, or Xenus or all this Witchers and Mad Max game etc. etc., there hell lot of this games and all of them get me bored. Their target audience is just console players who want just press button and "go across open map".

And about style - bethesda change their style efery game in their series. Not because it something cool just because they don't give a sigle fuck about previous games. Well, I don't give a fuck about modern bethsda games - I have many thing how to spend my time than another Todd's open-FPS on gamebryo.

So there is still a russian provider operating NMT 450 mobile networks which is a pre-SIM/GSM-technology and enables free phoning a lot.

How many people are using those things, why are they using it (come on, Russia is not bumfuck nowhere in Africa) and are there any more obscure retro technologies out there?
No. 17021

I remember my family owning a device that you could use to intercept NMT phone calls. It was kind of freaky as a kid listening to strangers phone calls, before police and emergency services moved to their secure network you could hear their calls also.


This phone really sucked. It constantly glitched, and sometimes it would even play the ringtone when nobody was calling.

Size 177.96GB. I dare to say contains among the best books of their fields and are supposed not to repeat. It is a extremely well ordered collection by topic, and if you compare the size you soon see its value. Topics range from mathematics, physics, psychology, self improvement, survivalism, the best science fiction and fantasy literature, comics, magazines, and more. Magazines takes about 75 GB and there are many youtube videos, documentaries and conferences so you can exclude these if you want to. All books combined takes about 40 GB or so. But i really recommend downloading other stuff too since you can't really find it somewhere else easily. Did I mention is well sorted and contains only the best books?


It has only one seeder left right now. Used to be many more months ago. Would you kindly share this torrent on places like demonoid, piratebay and other imageboards too? That would be good.

Anyone else getting haunted by sudden memories and nostalgia, at any moment and any given time, with a soul crushing impact that you have physical reactions like you were punched in the stomach.

It forces me to avoid listeningto music from like 10 years ago or watching movies or shows that resemble the life of past centuries i lived in. I don't know how to handle this shit, maybe because my life now is basically trash and i start to pretend that my life in the past was light and easy-going pls send help

Well it isn't something that I dwell on. You mentioned these decades and I saw it scrolling by and disagreed vociferously. Besides which there is always the possibility that the 2020s and 2030s can be good, but regarding exploration I don't know what. China has apparently been trying to grow mini habitats with plants and fruit flies on the moon. Which means there is still one last great frontier for us to explore

Not at all, everyone finds their own coffee niche. I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum and generally add a lot of milk and sugar. If anyone was wondering what candy bars melt best in hot espresso, the answer is Peppermint Patties.

This week is butthurt week in Australia. The week where everybody goes at each others' throats because of Australia Day instead of just taking the day off and doing their own thing with it and keeping it their own thing instead of trying to make it a universally bad/good thing. Most annoyingly, I have to go to work on Australia Day so I'm going to have to wade through protests to even get inside since I work on the main protest route in this city. It's a nightmare how everybody acts like not really caring for getting rid of a public holiday makes you someone who'd support Jim Crow Laws or some shit.

People need to cool their fucken jets man. Not just on this too, in general. The general intensity surrounding everything is really quite unnecessary and equally unpleasant.

As an outsider this has always struck me as an especially weird facet of Oz culture. Even Americans avoid making such a big show. It's practically German how you go about it but it's blended with a recognisable middle class neurosis and disdain for the poor.

Not enough proper Marmite I suspect.

where can I find German TV or just shows (even American blockbusters) with German dubbing AND with German AND with English subtitles?

American blockbusters with German dubbing would be OK (it should be easy to find English subtitles or rent English version of movie)

https://www.schoener-fernsehen.com/ doesn't have subtitles even in German

No, that's not it. This video is what was usually supplied with textbooks on audiotapes.
Such shows were like real shows, with video part. Though I don't think they are different much from such voiced dialogues, they just hold your attention with moving pictures.
Thanks anyway.

How about old children shows? There are some quality ones.
Sadly children TV in Germany went from teaching and entertaining to only entertaining in the last few years.

It's not made for teaching a language but they talk loud and clear with easy to understand words in such shows.

The only thing I know of that would fit your description is Telekolleg. But I already looked and they don't have a version for beginners' German, or at least I couldn't find it. I am pretty sure something like that also exists in Britain, they should have one for learning German. Sadly I cannot help with a name.

"The killing of Cray Horse" is about much more than the death of greatest Indian warrior of the nineteenth century. Most of the book deals with the events in the lives of the Whites, Indians & Mixed Breeds that lived around Cray Horse in the decades before his death. Most of the story comes directly from the accounts, diaries and letters of the people involved. You get a real feel for what life was like then.
