I've finished Dead Space on all the difficulty settings... Same with Gears of War and Gears of War 2.

Been a little bored.

Thanks for the info Charla!

I've got a US$70.00 credit at Hastings and I've been eyeing Fallout 3, but could never make up my mind 'cause I wasn't a big Oblivion fan. Oblivion bored me to tears.

With the new tax relief it's like a new game every month!

It's extra super sucky before you realize you have a targeting system.

Yeah... took me some time to figure this out. This message VATS available at first only triggered about this face:
Now I know, it is nice to see the blood splatter in slow motion.


I still don't know how to pickpocket. I usually use the option to kill people with nice things. I probably shouldn't have killed the doctor in megaton though.

Now I am on a roll again to kill that mutant behemoth I until now neglected.
Already got my fatman loaded I stored in my house.

You shouldn't have left that 10mm with the bitch... Still, you got a baseball bat.

We got halfway through the game before we figured out we could jump.

You pickpocket by crouching down (tap the left stick) and sneaking up on people, be careful though you might get busted.

I'm guessing you're not gonna be the Hero of the Wastelands when you are done.

Sounds like a cool idea to me. Not sure that I have anything I'd trade or loan at the moment, but that may change in the future.

I'm kind of in the same boat but I've just gotten past the sticker shock for new games. When you think of how many hours of entertainment you get it doesn't seem so bad.

I'm the same way. $60 isn't too bad if you get a minimum of 15-20 hours of good gameplay and good replay ability from it.

But it's all the better to only pay $10-15 for it a year later when you remember how awesome it was supposed to be.

That's why I stick with PC games. Cheaper to start off, even cheaper a year later.

Then I got to try to pickpocket.

Pah... I don't mess around with little things like Hero of the Wastelands, I am Savior of Mankind (German version, so I am not sure that this is the exact translation).
Just have some water ready for those thirsty guys sitting around, give some caps to these obscure churches, leave those hostages walk away with their probably worthless stuff and you have a chance to be as good as I am.


I hate the underground... I never come out where I want to.
I just got into a station, had to kill a bunch of mutants just to find out, that it is blocked.
