My System Specs

Default Fallout 3 - Nuclear Raves & Atomic Rants

Seeing as how the game has finally launched and some of us (not me yet) are playing it, I figured it would make sense to start a thread to talk about specific things we like or dislike.

The floor is open.

I don't know what to like because it crashes so often, I can't play it. Deja vu?

My Rant about Fallout 3:
I DO NOT HAVE IT YET, stop rubbing it in.

don't worry muse I am in the same boat your are.... :< Its a sad barely floating little thing but there are a few of us in it. We will get the game eventually but for now I am trying to live vicariously through the friends I know that do have it. Try and do the same it makes it sting a little less....

The art design and look of the game is great but the graphics engine is at the same level as oblivion. No shadows to speak of. Consequently the game flies. Can't figure out how to remove the vsync but I haven't budged off 60fps. everything maxed 1920x1200 4xaa 16x anisio.

Most computers will run this game.

Here's a video review from Game Trailers. Do the people who are currently playing agree or is it so much hype?

Gametrailers.com - Fallout 3 - Review HD

Let us know what you think.
