Picked up Fallout New Vegas for £4.49 at GOG. Surprisingly, it runs pretty well (so far…might change if things get busy on screen) on my old Vista machine.
First impressions…..looks like it might be fun.
I don't have the game but the number one tip I have noticed from seeing livestreams of this game is to save often. ;)

Ah!

So far I’ve been lucky with no crashes. Very irritating to setup up though. Binding specific keys and mouse functions had me pulling what little hair I have left out. I didn’t notice the device button for changing between keyboard, mouse etc. on the settings menu. This was because it had almost blended into the splash screen. Had to go online to find out about it. Not an auspicious start but now the game appears to be performing well.

I never did finish Fallout 3 so I might put this one aside and return to its predecessor for now.

I've been playing a little less lately - but I'm a fan and player of a fairly old game - EVE Online.
The game should appeal to every SCi-Fi fan. Unfortunately, EVE Online takes a lot of time, it's like a second job.

EEEEEEEEEEK!

The flashbacks. The horror.

I gave up on Eve years ago thankfully. Did the whole wormhole ninja thing, founded Hard Knocks with a couple of corpies, then got burned out on the administrative end of running a growing corp.

It's not so much about gameplay, rather the number of times the game crashes!
I just started playing Fallout 3 again (on my old Vista machine). It used to be pretty stable but now it crashes all the time after just a few minutes play. I had to replace the video card with a newer one about a year ago and it has the latest drivers installed. Ironic that it ran fine on my old now defunct card but not on my newer more powerful up to date one.:unsure:

Yeah, it'll probably not be tested with newer cards so the old game will 'fall through the cracks' - I guess. Fallout 3 does have quite a dedicated player base, but it's probably not big enough for the graphics card company to make adjustments to the drivers to help it in their updates.

Mind you, if the rumoured Fallout 3 remastered comes out, that may change.

Oddly enough, going back to playing New Vegas….seems pretty stable (so far).

I'm still mucking about on Fallout 4. It really is one of the best games ever made.

I've also discovered how to make the Thief 2 fan missions work on my computer, so that ought to keep me busy for a while! I played a demo for a game called Rustler (a sort of medieval Grand Theft Auto) which was very funny and full of great ideas but sadly just not that good a game.

I’m still enjoying New Vegas (just helped the mutants blast off in their rockets) so I might have to invest in Fallout 4 soon.
