If I want short games, I play Solitaire or Freecell. I want a bigass, endless world.

I only scrounge for ammo, caps, and parts I need for weapon or armor mods. I have about 5 weapons for various scenarios; long distance sniping, up close sneaking, and two combat shotguns for clearing…

That's my point. What exactly does W10 offer in functionality that I don't have with W7? W7 has been rock-solid for me for going on 3 years. No BSODs, no driver problems, no compatibility problems…

Totally sick of the hourly pop-up nag-screen about upgrading to W10. I will not be bullied into using a suck-ass OS I don't want or need. W7 is perfectly fine for my needs. It does whatever I want in…

I'm an old geezer, going on 68 and have played various CRPGs since the early 80s. I still don't get the fascination players have for isometric, turn-based, party-based, bird's-eye view CRPGs. Is it a…

My favorite guns are a modified Combat Shotgun that does 15 points fire damage along with its mods for about 164 total. Then, modded Gauss Rifle for about 340 damage for sniping. Also, Reba II modded…

Side point: Will writers please spell check their phrases before publishing an article? The correct phrase is 'rein in'', not 'reign in'. I see the misuse of this more and more frequently. Same with…

Of course the weapons suck at first. They're supposed to suck at first. The more you invest in Perks for weapons, the better they get as your characters grows. I'm hitting my stride now as a…

Maybe I'm somehow a rare exception as a PC gamer. Players complain about FO3 & 4 and Skyrim being buggy messes on PC. Huh? I played the crap out of FO3, both vanilla and modded, on a 12 year old home…

Games are funny. Not in a humorous way, though. They're like wine. When someone asks which is the best, the answer is the one that pleases your personal taste.

Not a game to rush through. Patience and exploration is rewarded. Enemies too tough? Beef up and come back later. I find taking out limbs and weapons on enemies works well when trying not to get…

I've played FO4 just under 20 hours so far. What I've noticed is the world seems more content dense so far compared to FO3 and NV. The NV world always seemed small and cramped to me.

I think the biggest problem for game developers is managing player expectations. Especially so in a well-known and loved franchise.

I'm a 67-year-old grampa and worked with and on computers since late 1979. I've played many CRPGs during that time, but never once a table-top, PnP RPG with others. Never saw the attraction, but…
