    One thing about rpg's; "a place for your stuff" should be the second priority when you're working on quests.

    Your own house is the only reliable place to keep extra stuff. 1 weapons cabinet, 1 armor cabinet and one "junk" cabinet,

    On a geeky sidenote: I went to visit Bittercup in Bigtown to see what she'd give me. A raider was in the compound and cut her head off.:bluduh I was so upset I went back a couple of saves...

    somehow the raider killing Flash didn't bother me quite so much.:lol3

    I game on PCs almost exclusively. When Morrowind: Oblivion came out a few years ago I got so sick of the game crashing all the time I upgraded my video card. Now FO3 keeps crashing switching in and out of V.A.T.S. so it looks like I'm going to have to sell some stuff to upgrade the video card again. :baldy

    150 will get you a radeon 4850 512meg. runs FA3 quite well for me. GTA4 is a stretch

    I loathe game console controllers.

    Anyhow - try this, bright boy:

    Select a locked object
    "~ {Enter} unlock {enter}"

    oh thats right...no keyboard.

    Yep, but I'm nVidia (for now) so it's looking like a GTX 260. Especially with both companies doing unified drivers it's so much easier just to plug in the newer generation card for whatever's already in the system.

    I cant even remember why I went with ATI vs NVIDIA any more. Really they are interchangable - just pick you team and go with it. :dunno.

    The only reason I can think of was that the motherboard I had selected was crossfire rather than SLI - not that I am *using* that feature or anything :lol3

    Things do still get a little twitchy with the ati cards under ubuntu. They're slowly getting better though.

    I've got an 8800 GTS I can't do anything with at the moment because I still have this stupid agp interface :/

    I'm a packrat too. I NEED those 45 .32 pistols.


    Just like I Need 500 rounds of ammo for a gun I don't have.


    I'm currently re-addicted to EVE.

    Oh I have another sickly fun game some of you might have heard of, it's a bit older though... Postal 2 Appetite for destruction. So far that's the only game I've ever found where you can use a cat as a silencer for your shotgun. Or pee on somebody right before you douse em with gas and set em on fire.

    I don't know if it will eventually, but I went back and got it all and I had been playing for a while.

    If you like the sniper rifle go find Lincoln's Repeater, it's in the Natural History Museum in DC (the same building as Underworld). :nod

    I made a shish-ka-bob last night. While it doesn't do a lot of damage, it sure looks fuck all cool!:lol3

    I walk around with it just because I think it'll make someone think twice about tangling with me. I mean if you saw a guy with a flaming lawnmower blade in his hand, you'd either think "that guy is bat-shit crazy" or "that guy is badass!"

    I was this || close to getting Resident Evil 5 today but I managed to resist.

    I was able to find the Wii Fit Board and Skate It for Cain's birthday. :clap

    :ddog Only the cheaters.


    My daughter would rather watch me play Fallout 3 than SpongeBob Squarepants. :gdog

    She's a very good spotter, too. Sees enemy movement before I even know what's going on.:raabia

    Right-click on the desktop, go to "Properties". Click on the "Settings" tab.

    Look for "Display: xxx monitor on xxx video card."

    Shiny Things is a stupid place to put this thread.:bluduh




    Anyway. Fallout 3 Maybe a spoiler.








    Went up to Paradise City to look around. Couldn't get in but I got the Security guy to give me the Mesmotron and a quest to "collar" 3 peeps (I'd already wiped the fourth out in Minefield). I go to Tenpenny and collar the local whore. My daughter asks me why I put the collar on her. I told her the girl was a bad girl and that I was going to send her to the slavers.

    "But she doesn't act like a bad girl"

    "She doesn't look happy"

    "What's a slave?"

    :bluduh

    I couldn't do it.

    Went back to the last save...

    :lol3


    btw, I take this being a "Regulator" shit way too seriously.:gun1

    +1 on shiny things.

    I wrote a long post today- then shelved it, thinking this might no longer be read. :cry

    I really like this game.

    Somebody from Capcom needs to take the RE5 engine and make a new Dino Crisis.
