I'll look in to it again in October or so. Time change and warmer weather means the xbox probably won't get turned back on till then.

Just got my two E74 Xboxes back from shop, repaired good as new. Now using them for offline and system linking while saving the third dedicated to online gaming only.

If you play Fallout, don't have your TV running next to it. Pictures from Japan are just so similar at the moment.
I only managed 10 minutes of play.

I haven't played either one in a while, but I imagine you are quite right.

They messed up the story a bit, didn't they?

Korea reunited under North Korean Leadership, dominating Asia? Then going on to invade the USA that has fallen deep?

Well, the last part is on its way, if the re... that would be CSM.

Looks cool. I have read the graphics are much better than the COD series. Not everybody agrees with the story line, but it looks like a nice change of pace. Any word on the online playing, I heard they were having some issues.

I also find their new website quite helpful, lots of info there.
The graphics seem to be intense!

Wow. Come on folks, who's playing? What's it like? It's supposed to snow here tomorrow, should I go to the store tonight and pick up the game since I can't ride?

I've been looking at picking up one of the new Apple Mac Book Pro's (13" model) for some development needs. I know that with Boot Camp I can run Windows natively and would only install Windows so that I could play some of my favorite games. Has anyone used their Mac's in this fashion? I've got a PS3 at home which is my main gaming console, but have thought running something like Fallout 3, which I could mod, on my Mac would be fun. Is the latest generation of Mac's graphic hardware enough to play Fallout 3 without pixelating to badly? I'd most likely use a 24" LCD external monitor if that makes a difference.

A friend of mine (gameaddictus majori) recently posted this on FB:

"Homefront = very bad game. Crappy play, horrible voice acting, and character motion from 2001. Gonna sell my copy back to Gamestop".

FWIW, YMMV.

I guess that means a few more rounds of Fallout 3 until the Duke returns.
