Mirelurks and Deathclaws and Raiders...OH MY!

Good lord! The sun...It's up...It's like Noon!
 This game is more cracklike than the most cracktacular crack to have ever cracked out of a crackpipe!



I am learning all sorts of things though...Heretefore, I thought the term "Fire Ant" meant something less....literal. I would also have thought that after 200 years cars would no longer be combustible. This is actually incorrect...so using them for cover is not recommended.

I hope everyone had a great holiday!

1 What game?

Looks like Fallout 3 to me.

Having had no experience with the previous iterations, I'm hesitant to jump in at this stage. I feel like I'd be lacking the requisite experience to angrily mock it as "not really a Fallout game" with all the other alpha nerds.

3 It is indeed Fallout 3.
Regards the "not really Fallout" griping, I'm not sure where that comes from. It is real time rather than turn based but it is remarkably true to the spirit of the 2 previous games. The freedom of movement in particular is astonishing. I am very impressed with this thing. It is one of the best I have ever seen.

I guess I'm just a Beta geek....

My only quibble is that there is no multiplayer option, but that would probably be exceedingly hard to pull off with the level of detail and freedom this game has, which is as great as some of the MMPORGs.

4 Well, I forgot to open my tag when I wrote that. Everything I've heard about the game is that it's Oblivion but better. Now, Oblivion is a game that sucked up many hours of my time (still not as much as Morrowind). That comparison speaks well of it to me, but I'm really not inclined to spend any money on a game that isn't likely to run well on either of my PCs. I also don't want to support their dependence on overbearing DRM.

It's the same reason I haven't gone out and dumped money on Red Alert 3, even though I desperately want to do so. EA has shown no regard for its paying customers (I'm speaking specifically of the continued unfixed bugs in games like Kane's Wrath) while turning the game into a long-term rental with limited activations and only hollow promises that they might someday maybe deactivate that requirement. I expect they'll go out of business and brick all those games first.

5 Now that's just plain weird. Last night when I left that comment, the first line said "I forgot to open my "sarc" tag", but I'd actually used < and > in place of ". It showed up just fine on the other machine where I wrote it. Now I'm on my other PC a few hours later and it's gone.
