I just got back from the store and I ordered a tank.

Well it was fun playing Fallout 4. Won't be a Fallout 5 now that a MMO version is out.

The storyline got pretty sloppy near the end of the main quest. Probably from needing to converge several different paths into a single, fairly generic ending. Standard Bethesda.

I just bought my nth earbud set, this time I got cocky and decided to take a more expensive one.

Guess what, with a 10 euros difference, I got one that is just loads better than the previous one (which broke after just two months because the wires were too flimsy), good sound, highly reinforced wire, metal reinforced jack and earbuds.

Time will tell, but they seem far more promising.

@Blizz

Bethesda can't write a main quest to save their lives anymore, they are scared of branching paths and parallel storylines and especially of lasting effects of choices made. I didn't even finish Fallout 4 yet (though I'm close) due to boredom with the storyline, I did like the whole build the teleporter situation, but aside from the flashiness of entering the institute for the first time after getting everything spoiled I just don't have the will to continue.

And that's the problem that they carried over from Skyrim, fighting dragons is awesome, capturing Odahviing is awesome, flying to Skuldafn is awesome, Sovngarde is awesome fighting Alduin was... underwhelming but fun enough considering it's a Bethesda boss.
However those were moments, very flashy moments, one can't deny that entering Solitude and witnessing Roggvir's execution or the last showdown between Ulfric and Tullius were epic moments, but the big picture was very lacking. I mean, an entire military campaign ended in less than a week, what is Tullius still doing being just a general, he needs to become emperor himself (or if you're a bloody rebel, why should Ulfric just be king of Skyrim then), and how much is this terrible civil war impeding on you? Well, it just makes a quest a bit more complicated since you need a ceasefire, which just means a little sidequest where you see both sides quarreling and then agreeing, wow, such diplomacy.

But then, you could be the archmage, does that mean that the greatest mage of the land couldn't find an alternate way to reach Skuldafn rather than having a dragon captured and bringing troubles to the local authorities?

Or you could be the captain of the Dawnguard, your order couldn't find a way to trap the dragon in their castle?

Or the ceasefire wouldn't be agreed upon and you needed to negotiate either who would side with Whiterun or reinforcing the garrison to preserve the neutrality of the Hold?

Or you could have defeated Miraak and mastered the power of bending a dragon's will, why would you even have to trap Odahviing in the first place?

Sorry, mentioning Bethesda and their storytelling makes my Skyrim disappointment resurface in full rage.

At least in Fallout 4 you get a different laser faction to detonate something.

(spoilers)

The extreme open-world environment of Bethesda games costs them too much imo. It's fun for awhile but there's too many characters that can't be killed and quests that have generic, uninteresting endings. The WORST is the STUPID Minutemen. The idea of building up a militia was cool at first, but absolutely nothing happens. You just keep establishing settlements and killing random raiders .

By the end of the game I did recapture the Minutemen's castle in Boston, so I could throw a bunch of smoke grenades at the end and have them artillery bombard the enemy base to death. That level of destruction was, I admit, pretty satisfying.

But yeah, once I wrapped the game up I was ready for a more close-ended RPG with a deeper plot instead of a Bethesda game with a thousand different meaningless distractions to bother you along the way that aren't even satisfying once you finish them, like "Hey, when you find a book you should return it to the public library!"

MY SON WAS KIDNAPPED, MY WIFE IS DEAD, AND THE WORLD ENDED 200 YEARS AGO, I DON'T GIVE A FLYING **** ABOUT RETURNING BOOKS TO YOUR STUPID LIBRARY.

Yeah.

Fallout 76 has less than 50% rating on Google. Probably because it's blatant profiteering meant to squeeze as much cash out of people as possible. Lots of people aren't buying it, and good for them.

The samsung laptop in question was my own. the now nearly obsolete (in certain areas like HDD size) fossil I bought in Bratwurst and Pilsner land of Merkelistan from my gestarbeiter salary priamrily (at the time) to play some Stronghold: Crusader, copy of which I had in my USB stick.
Fun times.

I'm actually amazed at the build quality of the thing, in the seven years of me owning it, first thing to go bust was the headphone jack (after 4 years).
Big kudos to our industrious asian friends. They build stuff to last, as it should be.

I can confirm that in regards to phones. I used to have a Samsung S3 that used to belong to my brother something like 5 or 6 years ago, he eventually discarded it since he basically broke the power button and left it at home, meanwhile my older phone was too old for android (Bloody apps get to a point in which old devices don't work anymore) so I took it, gave a quick fix to the power button, changed firmware and ran with it until a year ago (same problem with apps on outdated phones, plus miscellaneous annoyances...).

It eventually fell from a shelf and the screen completely shattered, some time later I realized I didn't get all the files from it, so I charged the battery, booted it up and it still worked fine, the touch screen still worked perfectly and I could transfer everything with no trouble.

The phone my brother got instead (an ASUS) had to get the screen replaced after falling down from a small height.

To this day, he changed his phone two more times.

Little quirk I just discovered.

A funny thing about us eastern Sicilians is that we call Mt. Etna Mongibello, which is the fusion of mons (mountain in Latin) and jabal (mountain in Arabic), which basically means that we call Mt. Etna Mountain Mountain.
That's pretty much known here, some mistakenly think it's beautiful mountain (Mongi being monte: mountain, and bello being, well, bello: beautiful).
Turns out that the castle of Catania, Castello Ursino is not Castle of the Ursines for the unlearned, and may not derive from Castrum Sinus (Castle of the Gulf) like the learned man may say but may actually be derived from "ursano", which according to some toponomastic studies means castle.

So basically, Castello Ursino means... Castle Castle.

Bloody hell are we original.

I think maybe you're referring to chemical enhancements, of which i'm absent of. Currently.


I'd rather say temporary "chemical enhancements", that comes at the cost of tons of brain cells and more body damage depending on the "enhancement". Don't take too much if you don't want to get stuck into the rabbit hole forever.
