  1. My wife and I played Oblivion for like two years, literally HUNDREDS of hours, before ever realizing you could actually pick stuff up in-world.
  2. Ha ha, yeah. Although, except for the portable part, it's just as easy to download through Xbox Live. That's how I initially got it, as a digital download.
  3. Yeah, finally found it. It's LT. I can't believe I've been playing this for over a year and never knew that. I don't know if I should delete this thread or not?
  4. What is 'right click' in the context of an Xbox One controller? Also, and this isn't like a shot or anything, but I'm honestly curious why so many people default to PC when describing a PC/console game. Like, I see it EVERYWHERE, and the response is often, "I'm actually playing it on console, how does that translate?"
  5. I acknowledge that probably most people would consider this less of a priority, because it's (unless I am missing something) almost exclusively for immersion over anything else, but I would love the ability to place any object in my inventory the same way you can place food items or the storm lantern. I was setting up shop in the main office on Mystery Lake and found myself wanting to set a toolkit down on a table, instead of just dropping it on the floor or storing it in a drawer somewhere. I think being able to place everything would be awesome.
  6. I'm sure this has to have been brought up before, but does anyone else think that The Grey is basically the TLD movie? I love the movie so much. (Although the book is not good.)
  7. Although I originally received The Long Dark as a gift in the form of a digital download from my wife in December 2017, I finally decided I wanted to show some more support to the studio, and also own it in real life, so I purchased a brand new physical copy. And I wanted to give some props to Hinterland for putting this with the game. Also, for a download of the soundtrack. (Although, I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I opened the booklet up and saw that it wasn't an instruction manual, it was literally just an empty journal. Don't get me wrong, that's still cool, I just...dammit, I want instruction manuals again, you know?! They used to be so awesome, and I'm so sick of lazy, money obsessed publishers ((not devs, publishers, I *do* understand the distinction)), sticking in two page long slips covering like the controls and the legalese info. WTF happened to ACTUAL instruction manuals?) Anyway, I'm glad to finally own it physically and I'm looking forward to Episode Three.
  8. This is coming from someone who plays The Long Dark, exclusively, on the Xbox One. At some point, I would really like to complete Faithful Cartographer and Exploration Game. I think some kind of tracking system wouldn't be unreasonable. Even something as simple as giving you a basic number to work with, like '0/18', for each region. It doesn't even have to be a checklist, just a tracker, so that I know whether or not I've completed a region and can move on. I think this would make a *LOT* of people happy, or at least some people *VERY* happy, given the fact that I have run into many OCD gamers out there who lose their minds a little over stuff like this. I know what it feels like. Just a thought.
  9. So, I actually got a notification for THIS response, but I know for a fact for the past several days that I should have gotten notifications for responses to some of my threads. Weird. Hopefully it was just a weird glitch.
  10. So I finally managed to confirm that the transponder parts are indeed in the mission critical inventory, along with keys and documents. Also the bear spear. On an unrelated note, I don't seem to be getting notifications anymore on this site whenever someone responds on a topic, and I did in the beginning. Does anyone know anything about that?
  11. Oh, I guess I missed the message, although usually they're pretty obvious. Also, I can't find it anywhere in my inventory. Which section of inventory is it listed in?
  12. This is probably a stupid question. So I'm finally getting around to playing Episode Two Redux, and I've gotten to the point where I'm at the first shortwave tower. I found the metal box you can interact with attached to the tower, and I go to open it, it opens, and...nothing happens. The only other thing I can do is close it. There's no option to extract or harvest or whatever the transponder parts. Is it a glitch or am I supposed to have like a toolbox with me or something else entirely? I've got to admit, I'm completely stumped.
  13. Area 51 by Bob Mayer (originally published as Robert Doherty), because after like 15 years he finally started writing books in that series again, and I figured I should go ahead and just re-read the series before jumping back in at book 10. And Fire Warrior by Simon Spurrier. Also a re-read. I'm reading it because I'm writing a Halo action fan fiction, and want to get myself into a proper headspace, and Fire Warrior has some of the best and most well-written combat and action sequences I've ever come across.
  14. Oh wow, I've never heard of anything like that before. That really sucks! It's going to screw with me, honestly. To give you an idea of what I was talking about, I went back and took a screenshot of how I posted another story to a different site. Each one of those Parts was uploaded over the course of about two weeks. This is what I was hoping to go for with the Spoilers tag, so you just click on the post, and right there, in very first entry, would be the entire story, organized neatly like this, being updated as I write it, instead of having to go scrolling and looking through however many posts for a specific chapter. Presentation has become pretty important to me over the years as I've learned more and more about both how to do it, and how much it affects the perception of the media being presented itself. Is there a specific reasoning for this? I'm guessing if it's baked into the site then it must be pretty immutable.
