...I don't even have time for video games. But that won't stop me from trying, damnit! I started the original Fallout game on the PC, and a combination of limited time and me sucking has led to very very little progress.
Here's a good gameplay overview. It's comfortably Dungeons-and-Dragons-esque, and it has that Ultima Online 2.5-D style. I love the 1997 graphics, and so should you.
Because I am a complete n00b, I died repeatedly the first time I played. Dying is serious business, and it made me generally unhappy.. especially because there is no such thing as autosave. Then I made a new character with better starting stats, and stopped being stupid. (Protip: If you don't have high strength, you'd better have a high first aid / doctory skill. And don't be afraid to bitch-run. Also, save your game a lot.)
I really really really want to play more [and post more, and post more things of substance, heh], but almost all of my time is spent between school, lab, and starting a new social circle in my new home town.
I'm thinking about playing for a half hour or so before I get some sleep.. or bringing my laptop to school so I can catch a quick lunch-break level or two.
In the meantime... I'm off to do some SCIENCE!
