  1. Ok. Just sent that email. I do hope you guys can fix or at least greatly reduce the issue, it's very jarring.
  2. I've tweaked everything I can but I'm getting the same old asset streaming stutters that I see in most other semi-open world Unreal engine games. Reducing textures and world detail to low alleviates it somewhat but it's not a perfect fix. i7 4790k 1080 Ti 16GB Ram Windows 7 on SSD.
  3. Sorry Daven. My father died six years ago. The cancer was killing him but luckily a burst aortic aneurysm took him quickly.
  4. I replayed Fallout 4 last year and found I was (still) deeply annoyed by the writing, mechanical shortcomings and just the general vibe so I decided to give the gog version of Fallout 3 a whirl. It seems that with some effort it's now possible (thanks to a few recent mods) to play the game without tearing out your hair due to bugs and random ctd's. 20 hours in and not a single crash so far, this is completely unheard of in my experience. Under the shadow of Fallout 4 the game holds up astonishingly well to New Vegas, a game which I have now plumbed to the deepest level. Yeah there's plenty of dumb stuff if you want to look for it but the writing, quests and world design range from acceptably good to excellent. Even the much maligned metro system is a joy to me, a seemingly endless mega-dungeon with masses of hidden nooks and secrets. There really are significant quests and locations you will never see unless you delve deep into the game, by comparison even New Vegas pushes all it's content right up front and there's very little reward for extended exploration. So yeah, having a blast so far.
  5. You wouldn't criticise a musician for having already bought his instrument...
  6. I've spent medically inadvisable amounts of time with Skyrim. It's been a few years since I last played but god help me I'm gonna have one more go when my usual winter lockdown kicks in.
  7. Yeah I've been meaning to try it for years but I never managed it. This time around I'm determined, even if it does feel like going against the grain.
  8. Playing New Vegas again. This time I'm aiming to join the Legion but up until meeting Caesar the game doesn't really give you many ideological reasons to do so. I'm finding it hard not to be my same old helpful self as I quest my way around the Mojave but I'm determined for my character to have some sort of revelation along the way. From a gameplay perspective I'm finally starting to feel the age of the engine. Fallout 4 might be a giant sucking wound as far as RPG mechanics but it is a far more enjoyable ride in the moment.
  9. That stuff in my belly button...what the **** is it?
  10. I've been so wrapped up in my own drama that I missed TB passing. Been listening to him for years in a love/hate kind of way. I always respected his fanatical dedication to quality PC ports. Gonna go watch the memorial podcast. RIP.
