I'm usually around 120-150. I switch between my guns so often it's sickening, so I carry a lot of them with me.

Yes, around 90 lbs. Ranger armor, lucky sunglasses and a hat that improves perception.
Weapons:
a21's Plasma rifle
Wazerrifle (laser rifle)
Blackhawk (scoped .44)
Terrible Shotgun
and if I remember right a plasma pistol
Nearly random number of grenades and mines. I try to keep it down.

You could guess now that I am collecting unique weapons.
The rest are in a locker in my house.

I carry a lot of stuff with me but I finally ditched the heavy guns that I just wasn't using. No minigun, missile launcher, flamer, nada.

The missiles are as good as gold when you never actually shoot them.

Favorite weapons are the Plasma Rifle, Lincoln's Repeater, Chinese Assault Rifle, 10mm Sub-machine Gun, and the Scoped .44. I sell everything else and all the ammo that I'm not using in my favorite guns.

I have over 3000 rounds of 5.56 right now.

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).
Quit quoting the wrong guy.

System Shock and System Shock 2 are also supposed to be excellent. I haven't played either but they're on my list. I don't ignore old games, I buy them Cheap!

Where do you get it?

Tell Moira you want stuff for the house. After that it should always pop up on the shopping list. I think the themes you have to ask for specifically.

I bring the flamer everywhere.

I'm scared to go underground without it.

New find for Fallout fans

I guess you console players are sol.

http://www.gog.com/en/page/fallout_promo

Fallout, Fallout2 and Fallout Tactics for $14.37

Went there looking for a new copy of Deus Ex.

Quote:
"Banned in over ten countries, realistic, non-stop-killing, action-strategy psychological thriller. No aliens, no mutants, no stupid quest for the dragon's balls. Just good antisocial, psychotic shoot-'em-up action, strategy and government intervention.

Blast, maim and fire-bomb your way through 17 levels (plus 4 new levels and 24 new characters in the expansion pack). Exploit mass murder opportunities: mow down marching bands, spray protesters, charbroil whole towns. Multiplayer mode: ‘go postal’ with up to 15 other death row candidates. 24 new additional characters including Red Cross workers, lawyers and nudists too!

POSTAL: Classic and Uncut includes the original POSTAL and the Special Delivery Expansion Pack "
Sounds like the perfect JoMomma Friday Night PUI game.

I'm a packrat. I have a few of everything (that I've found) in my house. I heart the combat shotgun. I rush my targets and stick it in their face.

Probably because they still make PS2 games.


L4D is still $50?

I'm thinking that maybe I'll turn in L4D and RE4 (for wii) to the local stop and either see if I can get a used copy of Dead Space or Maybe MotoGP'08.

Vault 106 is still hard to beat.


I still don't know why some of you got problems with ammo.



BTW, screenshots are made with ctrl+print and then appear as .bmp in the fallout directory.
