I'm playing (and loving) Fallout NV right now - my first attempted playthrough got cut off with a hardware failure that required a rebuild pretty early in, so believe it or not I am just now experiencing it for the first time. As a fan of the first 2 seminal games in the series, I still see enough "Fallout" in NV to be worthy of the name despite the perspective change. It's a great game - the fun exploration easily makes up for its other shortcomings.

Ironically I just loaded my 144th mod for New Vegas, and have it pretty much dialed-in, fined tuned, and running great. No CTDs, no stuttering, or issues so far; hopefully they don't rear their ugly head over time as my save file grows.

Have you gone to NexusMods and loaded up an mods, or are you just running Vanilla?

Enjoy!

That's kind of funny. Must be referring to the fans? Race car drivers of any kind must be in good shape to be competitive.

Yeah, it must be, as they definitely need to be in good shape.

I thought it was a funny >joke< just the same.....

The mod is a mess now that random contributors are allowed to go hog-wild without any form of oversight. Everybody thinks their idea is a good one, and all they have to do is convince one of the "curators" of the mod to go along with it, so they toss it in. They have no concern for whatever bugs are created or what issues there are with the way said ideas are implemented. A huge problem I noticed the last stint I had with the game, was with the whole "zombies can hit you while inside vehicles thing." They don't actually even have to be right next to the car and attacking, if there are zombies within 10 meters or so of the vehicle, there is something like a chance every second that you are hurt. So you could just be zooming past a random one on the street and suddenly you're bleeding. Such crap...

Yes, I have experienced this as well over the past several months; there's no longer any consistency. Remember how easy it was to log back into just about any server and pick-up where you left off? That isn't the case any longer, as you pretty much have to log back into the same server now, as it is a crab shoot trying to find another/different server to pick-up where you left off. It's kind of been a buzz kill for the forthcoming standalone game.

I think they're intentionally having them delay it until ARMA III is released, as they don't want it to over shadow ARMA III and/or hinder the sales of it.

This gameplay trailer showed us bad animations, terrible AI, ugly GUI, and blurry textures and Gerratt as nothing but a thug murderer. This game was not designed to appeal to people who liked the first 3 2 .

Even 3 was not as bad as what I saw in this one...

Agreed. I'm a big fan of T1 & T2, so Deadly Shadows was a let down for me, as it just didn't capture the same immersion for me that Looking Glass Studios was able to do. There were certain aspects of Deadly Shadows I liked, but overall it just didn't do it for me.

Hopefully we won't be disappointed with the final product.

Meh....I don't know, the more I see of this, the less excited I become. Now visual hit points....REALLY?! I hope you can turn that off in settings.

Well, I guess it IS a 'reboot' of the franchise, but they seem to be running with their own artistic license and straying too much from the original T1 & T2 formula.

Time will tell, but this certainly isn't a day one purchase for me anymore......I'm too much of a purest to the original series (T1 & T2) I guess.

Stick with 2003 if you can. The ribbon interface is a bad joke that won't die. I've been using it for 5 years, and I still hate it.

Or use Office 2010 and a lot of its really great new possiblities WITH the classic menu! Just download and install the classic menu add-on (Google!) and be happy with a really better MS office version plus the classic menu.

Excellent! This is getting better and better. Thank you much for help and info.

Good to know, thank you.

Excel 2003 feels like stepping back in time from true 3D to the 2.5D of Duke Nukem.
It's lacking so many features it isn't funny.

The Ribbon isn't a fraction as bad as people make it out to be, and you still have shortcuts.

Thanks for info as well, I appreciate it. I like the analogy. ;-) I'll just have to watch a couple of vids on it and/or just bite the bullet.

So, it's basically a re-badged GTX680 gpu that is overclocked, has faster GDDR5 chips, and is $50 cheaper than a GTX680.

Grin....that pretty much sums it up! NICE!

I'm still using MS Office 2003, but may be upgrading here to 2010, as I have heard nothing but bad press about 2013 and 365.

It pisses me off that with every new architecture change we have to get a new mainboard, because of the fucking socket change. Fucking Intel trolls...

Yes, that has become something that has really pissed me off over the years. I used to be very selective on the MBs and CPUs I chose so I only had to upgrade my system a couple few years down the road with an upgraded next gen CPU and/or video card, but Intel caught onto that too quickly and those days are over unfortunately. It was a quick upgrade too; now you have to pull your system apart so you can upgrade the MB to support the new architecture. Damn it InBlack, now you got me fired up.

So weird. I saw the title and started singing Duran Duran's View to a Kill. Huh.

GREAT! Thanks, now I've got that song playing in my head. Headphones



Yep! I actually saw them live last year - they were really good, and I'm amazed how well Simon's voice has held up. Must be semi-clean living...



NICE! I didn't know they were still together/on tour. Very cool.
