        Not really other than continue giving her the pills I am giving her now, and monitor her condition.
        The weird thing is; she has started eating again.

        It's so thin veiled that is trying so hard to be "controversial" just for the purpose of getting views, and hence get ad revenue. It's pathetic and shameful.

        Specially when the article does such a piss poor job explaining anything, and skims so much from each game to make its "points".

        Now that is a fucking work if I ever seen one. everything Norzan said is correct and that is just some rage bait article with the goal of attracting fallout turbonerds to harass the author on social media. jokes on them, there are no more fallout tubronerds, they all died.

        While I would like there to be references and some links to FO1, 2, and FNV, the idea is to create a setting with its own factions and organizations. So no NCR or BOS, but instead Lone Star and Followers of the ATLANTIS.

      Sometimes I wonder if I for my own dream Fallout project should perhaps only treat FO1 and FO2 as canon and ignore FNV.

        Hello all, sorry for not responding
        Aurelius, that is also what I sort of have. I like FNV but I feel that VB would have been a better continuation and place to continue from.
        To much was cut to fit in FNV.

        Civ 6 is pretty great now. Prefer it over 5 but mainly because I'm sick of the art deco UI theme.

        Two previous Expeditions games are Conquistador and Vikings. Fun tactical encounters mixed with a good amount of choice&consequence in a really interesting settings (games take a few liberties with the history).

        The toilet was blocked. Think it happened because of toilet paper, I was having a case of severe runs during this week.
        The plumber did eventually show up and the issue was solved within ten minutes.
        All that was needed was a plunger which I of course did not have.

        That is kinda something you need on hand to save yourself money in situations like that. It is also why in the country you have a trashcan to throw away those piles of shit paper you were flushing down the drain.

        The plumber is part of the services the organization provides that I rent the apartment from so costs are at least not my problem.
        But having a clogged up toilet is a real pain.
        Heh definitely not going to save up the shit paper here.

        If you can get Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition in a dirt cheap sale, it's worth getting. Actually, on Steam, it's half price now until June 17. May not be cheap enough. Play with mods if you get it.

      Just saw your Area 51 idea in the 'What Fallout was supposed to be' thread. If you ever get a year spanning wild hair and make that mod be sure to let us know. It sounds excellent, and frankly anything to explain some of the Wild Wasteland-style inclusions, before and after the Wild Wasteland solution was created, would be great.

        Something else I wanted to do was bring Tibbet's facility back in a mod/fan DLC. The player would accidentally be caught by the computerized warden and would have to organize a prison break only to discover that letting the prisoners escape into the wasteland is not such a good idea as all are infected with Limit 115.
        The player could work with the warden/ODYSSEUS, the prisoners, or work out a solution with both.

        I'd have liked to see how that might have evolved. Tibbet's prison was in Arizona, I believe, so you're having fun times in legion territory. How the interactions between the Legion town heads nearby, and the warden could be interesting. Some people may even *want* to release Limit 115 prisoners to spawn unrest in the East. Fun times.

        I really had this wish to bring back some of the locations planned for Van Buren. The player would go to Denver to seek the source of the plague, the Nursery to develop a cure, and BOMB001 when the player learns from the Warden that as part of a containment protocol it activated BOMB001 in order to sterilize the infected region.

        You are talking to one of the biggest Metroid fans probably on this forum. I adore almost every game except the two first games (to old), Metroid Hunters, Other M, and Federation Force (was okay, not good, especially in SP mode). Hmm, the Messenger

        I actually read it more than I post. But that might me because I don't have much time usually. So, whenever I have the time, I prefer to post here on NMA or other forums where I am a member for longer.

        Never played them actually. In general I don't like fantasy with the exception of Planescape Torment as it was so alien and not Tolkien esque.
        I always preferred robots, aliens, science above wizards, trolls, orcs etc.

        Of course, there are plenty of very unique fantasy settings that do not depend on or use the tropes from European mythology/Tolkien esque fantasy such as Asian ones. Don't think there are many East European ones.

        Still I prefer sci fi in general.
