beat me too it! was just

beat me too it! was just going to post this...IF you have not played this game, you certianly should (if you enjoy old RPG's) I recently (less then a week ago) started playing it myslef. its not real freindly with Corssfire video card setups and takes some annoying hoops to jump through to get going (correclty).. but once going it sucked me right back in.

I know eh?

I am not big on RPG's at all (shock and horror!), hate turned based even more but hey I cannot resist a freebie lol!
It is so highly acclaimed and includes free manual/soundtrack/avatars/wallpapers and more! Best of all DRM free
and repacked for modern OS, seemed to install fine on my Win7 64bit with 8800GT GPU!

Sweet!

Thanks Rob!

I haven't played this since I lost the disc for the thing AGES ago... I'm SO happy!

On a more somber note, I'm terribly sorry to see that Matt managed to beam you back from the "Wild, Lusty, Busty Bikini Planet." I wanted to weep with happiness for you...

Cheers,
-S

I've been trying to duplicate the accident that sent me there in the first place! If I can replicate the portal once more then I can find away to ensure that nobody else need suffer the same fate ever again! I am determined, I know it is risky but I cannot give up! I will take the risk and if I get back to the other dimension I will sacrifice myself and seal the portal permanently! YES I will stay there forever if need be and stand guard so no other souls will be lost! Don't try to talk me out of it, it is my duty!

Fallout won't convert you, Rob.

Rob (Daviau), Fallout is a classic CRPG, and it's free! But pretty much everything that turns you off about CRPG's is there in spades in Fallout. I guess that's why it's a "classic" in the CRPG field; it is (by most accounts) a CRPG done right.

If you don't like turn-based combat, Fallout has a rather deep and complex turn-based combat system.

If you don't like non-linear gameplay, Fallout is very non-linear.

If you don't like slow gameplay, Fallout has lot's of "slow" parts where you're walking around (exploring?) with no perceivable threat.

Well, I could go on, but even I didn't get very far into Fallout. I admit I didn't give it much of a chance, but the first "settlement" I arrived at seemed dry and barren, which fits the premise of the game, but I found it rather uninteresting. I suppose (hopefully) I'll go back to the game eventually, but for now, my gaming plate is full.
