    Yes. I wasted days of my jr high life on that game. I'd probably still be playing it if I hadn't lost the CDs.

    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! :wave

    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.

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

    Yeah... took me some time to figure this out. This message VATS available at first only triggered about this face: :huh
    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. :evil

    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. :lol3

    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. :lol3

    Sounds like a cool idea to me. :thumb 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. :lol3

    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). :D
    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. :lol3


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

    Ultimatley I like PC better than console, but I don't have the money to throw at several thousand dollar systems anymore so I just stick with consoles now and if I just happen to not play a game for several months it won't be sitting there taking up space on my hard drive.

    Here's some RE5 Vids.

    The graphics look great. The whole game looks a lot more fluid than the previous ones.

    For whatever reason the embed feature didn't work so here's the links.

    (If you dig around on the gamespot's website they have the same videos in 540P)






    Can't wait to get started on my new games, but I won't get out of class until after 10 tonight and I go in at 7am tomorrow. :cry

    RE1 was awesome. First game I'd ever come across like that. Tense, long, creepy.

    I dug Fallout because I was a way into the "Day after Disaster" sci-f books when I was a kid. So the idea of roaming the wastelands like Mad Max appeals to me. Listen for the subtleties in FA3. The supermarket is a lot of fun for that. Some of the audio reactions are a hoot.


    But I did discover in GTA IV that if you do wheel spinning donuts long enough in the cars, the tires will blow up. The cars handle like shit on rims. :lol3

    I prefer gaming on a PC because you are more in control. I like having to build the machine myself to suit my tastes. And then there is the modding of games. The downside is that most games now start out as console games and then convert to PC - often to the detriment of the game.
