So I finally decided to finish AC4 and, having an unhealthy appetite for completing nearly every AC game with 100%, did a lot(!) of exploration before finishing the main story. I only need to find two more buried chests and defeat three more legendary ships to get to 100%, I think. But why stop there? There are only five of the Abstergo challenges left for me to do, and four of them seem pretty easy, but one of them is really annoying. I still need to find one(!) social chest to get the "Share the location of three social chests" challenge, and I haven't stumbled across one for days. Is there any reliable way to find those? I already did some research, but everybody seems to be of a different opinion about what you can do to find them, so I thought: "Why not go to the best community you know and ask there?" (ass-kissing, me? where?). Thanks in advance for (hopefully) helping me out.

@beyondstrange: Same here. Can't seem to find it anywhere yet (in Europe).

Hi there, hope you all had a nice christmas.

I've been wanting to play through Fallout 3 for many years now and now I find myself on the brink of finally doing it once more. I would be happy about some advice, however: Would you recommend a Vanilla playthrough for first experiencing the game or should I go in with mods blazing? I found a pretty detailed modding guide online (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL77ECC4B6194E1685) that I would go with, because without a guide I'm basically lost when it comes to modding. From what I've seen so far, the Wanderer's Edition mod could lead to some crazy random encounters in the Wasteland (http://youtu.be/a7b0mjp1wRA) which looks absolutely incredible.

But then again: Modding takes time, which I don't really have, so I would only want to do it if it massively improves the experience and doesn't distract too much from what the game originally was like.

So: Is modding essential for the first playthrough of Fallout 3 in your opinion or is it completely fine the way it is (GotY edition with all DLC) and should I save the mods for a second playthrough, which is likely to never really happen because afterwards I will want to finally play through New Vegas and so... much... more? Thanks for your replies in advance and have a nice day.

@deadpancakes: Yes, that's it. I was under the impression that this conversation was longer. Anyway, thanks for linking to it.

Hi there,

I can't seem to find a really early, if my memory serves me right, bombcast episode (or was it even still Arrow Pointing Down at that time) in which Ryan and Jeff spend quite a lot of time talking about naming their site GiantBomb and bring up some of the ridiculous other names that they originally had thought about. I remember liking this segment very much. Am I just making this up? Is this just a fever dream? Or can you help me find this episode? That would be appreciated.

How fitting that in an article about assholes on the internet, assholes show up in the comments. I wonder: Do they even realize this?

I bought Far Cry 3 via Green Man Gaming in the Deluxe Edition.

But somehow I'm not sure if I really have the Deluxe Edition installed now. Uplay only shows the game as "Far Cry 3", so I can't really tell from that. I found the survival guide and the soundtrack in the downloaded .zip-file from Green Man Gaming, but I'm wondering if I need extra codes to redeem the exclusive in-game content in the menu or if the in-game content has automatically been installed.

One thing that especially makes me wonder is that the "Warrior Pack" is supposed to give an early unlock of the Tattoo Editor in Multiplayer.

I haven't played a single round of multiplayer yet, but when I click on the "Tattoo Editor" icon it prompts me to unlock level 40 before I get to it. So that seems a little strange to me.

Has anyone else purchased the Deluxe Edition digitally who can clear up my doubts? :)

[edit]

So if anyone was wondering the same as me: You have to use the key that was used to activate the game on Uplay again(!) in the "Exclusive content" section of the main menu. Then the Deluxe Edition is unlocked.

This is weird and amazing in an absoutely wonderful way. Looking forward to it.

@Marokai: Well, they could of course adress every single worry the community has, but that would be only words, wouldn't it? I think that the most pressing questions have been answered (at least to some extent) and there will be more answers down the road for sure. But now they're concentrating on finally getting some new content out and letting that do the talking, which is exactly the right move if you ask me. Yes, this is just the beginning, and yes, no one can really tell for sure what's going to happen in the future, but in my opinion the chances of all this turning out well are far better than the chances of it turning into a disaster. I'm really excited about this "new" start and I think that you can tell from only looking at the recent videos and listening to the crew that they are very excited and happy about it as well. That's a good sign for things to come.

And here I was, thinking this could be my "Yes, I'm first!" chance. ;)
