Gave up on FO:NV after game ending bugs hit me left and right. Fable 3 had a horrible story which rewarded you for killing millions.

Best games this year? Red Dead Redemption and Assassin's Creed 2 + Brotherhood (story continues so you gotta play them both).

If you help the NCR with some side quests you can regain their trust. Also, depending on where you are in the game, Caesar will eventually want to meet you and pardons you. That's after you go into the Tops Casino and finish some business there.

New Vegas bugs are mostly video driver related. If you're on console you might be a few updates behind.

I pulled the HD and dusted it off, popped it back in and left the cover off.

It ran much longer before shutting off. I dunno if the HD is getting hot or if the processor is getting hot.

Maybe the high cap fan isn't kicking on, but I dunno how to test that.

It's not sitting on carpet is it? I'd use compressed air and or a vacuum to clean out the inside. I'd probably overheating. You might consider taking the case apart as well.

That was the trick to getting the old PSX to run when it started overheating. Probably a good idea to take the case apart and clean out the heat sinks and check the fans. Maybe redo the thermal grease as well.

It runs on it's side but it's in an open (all 4 sides) hanging shelf above the TV in my entertainment system.

Kind of dusty though, I'll try vacuuming it.

Any holes I shouldn't blow compressed air through?

Probably good to stay away form the optical of the drive. You can try to put a vacuum to the HD bay and then blow out the other vents so the vacuum can get them.

I tried l4d2 yesterday...

I think it will be a lot of fun in co-op multiplayer!

My coffee maker shit the bed on Saturday so I had to go out and brave the shopping hoards and decided to swing by Game Stop. I grabbed a used copy of Red Dead Redemption and we played for a solid 12 hours yesterday.

Unfortunately I never unlocked the "Went Outside" achievement.

Yes, Co-op multiplayer on it is great fun. It's good fun having a game focussing so much on co-operative play, rather than everyone doing their own thing and just being on the same team so far as scoring is concerned. My gamertag is the same as my board name, feel free to add me as a friend if you fancy a game.
