Windows 7: Fallout 3

I think I remember reading from the start, and in the fo3 tweak guide it says. You should turn off the auto save stuff. Which I do for all games. I normally hard save in games that I can. Quick saves over write each other.

I read it can cause probs and lag or freeze lock up your system. And it has like 3 or 4 different reasons for auto saves to boot. Its best to manual save, and sometimes do a hard save too. Quick saves have more a change to corrupt, or for some games any way..

It is times I like to go back and play things a different way and make videos etc, so hard saves are better for me. If I get to many saves, I will delete out all but the last one maybe, but I save them all in a different folder.

If memory serves (it's been awhile) you get a new slot for every quicksave in FO3

Maybe so, in many games they over write each other.

Ya.

A game I can finish in a day or eve, is more like a demo. The 4 dlc's for 10 bucks each that follow- complete the game. Well, maybe?

I hate that, then most today are just poor port games, and now trying to cost 60 bucks. I can wait..

Every time I see xbox or ps is going to get some new content and not pc or will get it first, makes me want a game even less..

Well there is some hope the crytek engine for the new crysis will help that some. The goal was to be able to develop games for ps,pc, and xbox simultaneously. I hope this will start a new line of thinking with games and allow more releases to access more platforms in the future. ...don't know why no one has been making game engines like that makes perfect sense. ...longer dev time I guess.

Ya I seen a video of that crytek engine. Dude had pc up on the screen, but had a box for ps and xbox, he made a change on pc it changed it across the others at the same time.

My point was. PC gets crap for games and less of them, then they are short or buggy or port or sorry gfwl junk, then they want to milk ya and might not ever patch a thing while trying to do so.. It has been said and even about ms- they are trying to slow kill off pc gaming.. Most would rather push us all to consoles.

When I see xbox what ever will get content that the others will not or first- or ps will. It pisses me off. PC gamers spend more than the others, we get treated like crap, we mostly get crap, people buy it anyway. Now paying 60 bucks for crap games. Gets sickening after a while. When pc gaming is gone- I do not need a pc anymore- I will never play or own a console..

You can not play mp over the net and not be cheated, so I do not play mp games like talking about it. PC gaming is not much worth it any more.

Gaming got me into using a computer. Sad...

I too get irritated with $60 games that are over with in 5-7hrs. just no value it seems.



If you like games like Fallout, that have a lot to do and last awhile:

I would suggest giving Dragon Age Origins a shot.
A bit different style of game, and more strategic, but a good game and a pretty decent story line.

Mass Effect 1 and 2 were also quite good, and worth buying.

Then theres Fallout NV. Many did not like. I did, although I prefer FO3 over it. Story was better.
But, NV is basically the exact same game, just a different enviroment. Nothing new really.

Other opinions may vary, but these games are worth buying IMHO.
