Man I think this might be the earliest I've seen the Bombcast go up yet! Gonna be hard saving this one up for tomorrows run but probably totally worth it!

There's nothing like a Bombcast in the morning (or early afternoon)... Too bad that I'm planning on not listening to it for a few hours since I prefer to listen to podcasts while I work. :(

I'm really sad that Path of Neo isn't backwards compatible. I've been dying to replay it recently. We need a new matrix game.

@unastrike I am pretty sure that you can fix the ending! Here are some vague tips: I'm assuming that you started on the lord of hollows quest line where you get free levels from the dude with the shell? ways to avoid that ending is either to kill the npc's connected to that quest. The fire keeper can cure the dark sigil in late game which should allow you to link the fire in the end.

If they've already gotten their hands on Pyre (wouldn't be surprising since they are friends with Greg) curious to hear their thoughts when I have time to listen to this. The game looks so stunning but hard to tell how it plays from the trailer.

I can't stop hearing all the lip-smacking and saliva and cheek-squelching in the more recent Bombcasts, and it's super gross. Did they get new mics, or start sitting way closer to them? Maybe it's just me. I can't un-hear it. It's like listening someone eating food with their mouth open.

Specs are underwhelming. Let's see what they can do that little push in the near future.

So was I the only one where Fallout 4 ran just fine for me (on Xbox One) and subsequent patches just improved things more?

It certainly wasn't "trash".

And if you truly gave this much of a shit about performance, wouldn't you have just spent the money for a PC? This PS upgrade seems like it is for a very small percentage of people.

That bit about vacation time reminded me of how bad your employment law is in the US.

In the UK employers are obliged to give everyone at least 5 1/2 weeks paid holiday leave per year (they do have to let you do it all in one block though). And we are quite a bit below other European countries in that respect. That scales down pro-rata for part timers of course.

PS Neo just seems bizarre to me. A strange risk with little reward for them. Gives MS an opportunity to close the slight hardware gap and look less anti-consumer than Sony if they release an Xbox 1.75 in say, a year to 18 months.
