Hope you made a backup of your saved games.

My save games are all on the old system which has been fixed.

Just need to copy them over to a NAS. the worst thing that'll happen is that I'll have to start a new game.

At least Windows Live let me download the DLCs I already paid for.

Pretty darn realistic and not much more than what was spent on your console and monitor.

P.S. I know what you're saying and this was meant as a joke to a certain degree. Life is out there for us. Games are an escape.
I'd love to do that.

Unfortunately der missus says no guns allowed at home (i'm working on it), right now I really don't have the money to spend on a rifle, ammo and the gas to get me to a place where I could do stuff like that and finally I am gone from 6:45 in the mornin to 9-10 at night on weekdays, so weekends are more or less "family time". I have to fight just to get 15-30min to play fallout.

So a $60 vidya game is the best I can do right now.

Hi my name is Thomas and I am a buffout addict...

Holy shit I found the alien blaster I had to put it in my house in megaton and leave it there! I said self if you die three times trying a quest then it's OK to go back and get it, only to complete the quest but that's it! Then it goes back home

I found some crazy ass armor... alas I cannot wear it, so it goes to my pack mule helper at some point...

It'd worth it for the rad removal, too.

You're doing it wrong. Trade off the ammo you don't use.

Hell I have 2000 rounds of 5MM and I have never shot my mini gun...

Don't remember off hand but a whole bunch of railway spikes and 2nd level railway rifle never shot that...

I am so itching to shoot the fat man I have but I only have 3 nukes

Or the scoped 44 I still need to shoot...

Dam I am a lame ass gun hoarding nut...

Wait on the fat man, it may come in handy.

But the minigun? Sell that bitch like it's hot! You can get a decent amount for them in underworld and you can find them anywhere.

If you've got the scoped 44 then sell any or all of your sniper rifles.

As expected, you don't know how to play.
The first aid station is for rad removal.

Still don't know how you can't have enough caps. I keep buying unneeded Ammo, because those stupid shops don't have enough money for the shit I am selling.
You should also reduce your gun load (to haul more shit).

I was asking myself this very Q... How much weight do you guys and Charla carry when heading into the wasteland? I think I carry about 90lbs...
