Re: Recommend an ISP to churn to

Yikes, there goes Optus then. Although I manage SNR via my Billion and have it set for 3dB at the moment to get the most out of my long line. Or would Optus's settings override that? Optus DSLAMs (hardware at the exchange your modem connects to) are configured to ignore any SNR tweaking done on the...

Re: Fallout 4

Where have I said I refuse to play it? The closest you could possibly get is I don't want to play it yet. I'm actually rather interested to play it, but from everything I've read it doesn't seem much like an RPG and more just an open-world adventure with some RPGish stuff stuck on. And yeah, can we...

Re: Fallout 4

Were you able to talk your way out of all the combat in the original Fallout games? I might need to check them out if so. I just started playing Pathfinder with a group of people and have been loving the open ended way our story is unfolding and the choices you have. No, there's a bit of rose colou...

Re: Fallout 4

What makes an RPG? Let's say, for example, you're approached by a group of bandits in the game. What can you do? Run in guns blazing? Bluff your way out with a silver tongue? Bribe them to go away? Lure them into an ambush? Bully them into submission? Join them and tell them about a huge stash of l...

Re: Fallout 4

Yes, but people are buying the game now. If it gets fixed up in the future, you can have a Review 2.0 That is generally not how the games journalism works, but I can certainly see the argument why it should. Once the review comes out and Metacritic grabs the score, that is the score it has from the...

Re: Fallout 4

Well to be fair, I only see the same people criticicing it and still refuse to even try it. It's getting absolute stellar reviews across the board. 72/76 reviewers rated it 8/10 or higher. This. I choose to play it for what it is rather than for what it isn't, and I'll likely have a better time bec...

Re: Fallout 4

My only issue with the reviews is that they seems to be glossing over the technical issues. There are still the usual glitches and weird oddities that come with a Bethesda game, such as floating NPCs and animals, glitchy movement, clipping issues and terrible companion pathfinding. Reviewers seem t...

I've been trying out some brown ales and dunkels lately too, at the moment I'm drinking some Mornington brown ale and Franziskaner dunkel. Mornington Brown Ale is quite nice, have not tried the Franziskaner dunkel - another to the list!!...

Re: Recommend an ISP to churn to

Optus also only provide one line profile with high 12dB SNR margins to reduce the potential for dropouts and lower support costs but results in substandard downstream sync rates compared to other ISPs. They also cap upstream to 812kbps for no real reason. For those with bad and/or long lines you ca...

I have to admit I'm not a big fan of the craft beer scene, it seems like a convenient way to charge more for less beer to me, but I do like to try new beers. Picked up a six pack of Kosciusko Pale Ale but I'm not sure if that qualifies as a craft beer :lol: I quite like that side of it, partly beca...

I have to admit I have got a bit hooked in the past on some of Kairosoft's mobile games. Some of them have been food or business themed such as The Sushi Spinnery.
