  • MMORPG.com : General : Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Launch Trailer

    Only thing I've heard about the game is that the horse testicles draw up tight when it's cold and that it isn't on PC.

    I didn't like the way S.P.E.C.I.A.L and the perks worked in FO4.  You couldn't make a gibbering cretin with off the charts Charisma.
    Yes you could,  I did one playthrough with Charisma at 10 and intelligence at like 3.
    Not with the idiot response choices to NPC chats you had available in 3 and NV.

  • Which Fallout game is best of these 3

    Each have different merits.

    FO 3 has a clearly defined 'good' goal.  It wraps up the Harold & Bob story from the first two.  Some of it's DLC is delightfully weird '50's era science fiction elements.  Overall, it takes itself less seriously than the latter games.

    FO New Vegas end goal isn't as clearly defined.  The different factions you can choose to support are neither good nor evil.  It's end goal and story is more open to choice.  

    FO 4's story is rather scattered between all the different factions you can choose to support or try to kill off.  The crafting is significantly more involved than previous games.  Settlement building is a love/hate relationship.  You'll quickly find out why people want to put a bullet in Preston Garvey's and Marcy Long's skull.  

    Replayabilty can be hit or miss.  You have to commit to a different build.  I always seem to end up with avatars that have the same skills regardless of what I try to start with.

    None of the three have any continuity between each other.  You can play them in any order and you won't see any spoilers or story elements that are shared except for the world they occur in.

    I'd say Fallout 3 and it's DLC are overall better than the other two.  Unless you really  like to create settlements.




    In all of them Dogmeat is Dogmeat.  Love'im or hate'im.

  • Apple requires proprietary software/hardware to make major repairs to iMac Pros and new MacBook Pros

    https://www.engadget.com/2018/10/04/t2-apple-imac-pro-macbook-pro-repair-right/

    Any Apple computer with it's T2 chip is affected by this. That currently is limited to the iMac Pro and 2018 MacBook Pro.  Only authorized Apple service departments with proprietary diagnostic software/hardware can now repair significant hardware issues.

    "According to MacRumors and shown on documents posted by Motherboard, anyone doing significant repair work on these systems will be left with a nonfunctioning system until they run the "Apple Service Toolkit 2" diagnostic software. For the MacBook Pro that includes "display assembly, logic board, top case (the keyboard, touchpad, and internal housing), and Touch ID board," and on the iMac Pro, it's the logic board or SSD."

    You'll also need another functioning computer to run the diagnostic application from.

    There goes your 'right to repair'.

  • Upgrading Soon

    Don't have any advice on upgrading but I just replaced the fans on my R9-270.  Look up the specific model you have.  $20, thermal compound, a couple of small phillips head screwdrivers and it cools like new.
