I know about Irfanview, I just haven't installed any picture programs because Windows 7 kept screwing up on me and forcing me to reinstall; so I've been kinda going on a minimum installation until I'm sure it won't screw up again. Seeing as how it's been fairly stable, I may go ahead and install that program. Thanks.
Anyway, my other companion is Charon. I picked him up when I had the caps and haven't looked back since. He doesn't say much, but he's pretty mean with that shotgun...
You got that right, but it's easier than getting my wife away from the game.
Great screens! The goo ones were funny, what hand gun is that with the scope?
Thanks. I wasn't sure if I should post the one with Dogmeat because I didn't want to gross anybody out. The pistol is the scoped .45 Magnum that Eulogy Jones was using before I, uh, "borrowed" it from him. Hey, he didn't need it any more. ;D
Good to see the old memorial restored to its former glory.
What's everybody looking at?
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. (Sorry, I was weak and couldn't resist).
: Forgot to add: Drake, I bought our copy at Walmart, but I'm sure Amazon also has it if you don't want to go through Gamestop. I highly recommend the GotY version because it has the 1.08 patch and all of the DLCs.
Have you tried GameStop? The GameStop in the mall by me has it.
I did try 2 outlets -- by GameStop I think if you are referring to Electronics Boutique that seems to be a branding of theirs here in Canada. Also I have been keeping an eye on Future Shop, Staples and Computer City, but nobody has carried it in the past 2 months. They did have it earlier this year when I was not in the buying mood but I am sure it will reappear eventually. Same thing with the original Mass Effect I'm trying to find, it will pop up again somewhere. For games I always try to get them at a big discount New Vegas is the first game I've bought in years that cost me more than $20 but I think it was worth it With the holidays there is a good chance alot of these stores will restock games its the season.
And yes the GOTY version was also recommended to me before thats the one I'm looking for. There seem to be a dearth of prepaid cards that don't charge a ridiculously high loading fee so I would buy online but with all the cards available around here its not worth the overhead to go online, I'd rather wait. I can always play Morrowind if I run out of other stuff, I was having a very cool time with my Breton Paladin working towards heading up the legion, level 16 or something now and cruising
I think EB was bought by someone; however, here they kept the name but the store is alot different than it used to be they have much more emphasis on pure games, mostly console stuff. That is the case with all the big retailers near me the PC games mostly get the back corner now and the console games get the front racks.
The good news is the stores have begun restocking more games for December sales and I finally found a copy of Fallout 3 today, unfortunately only for the Playstation not yet for the PC, but at least its a good sign.
The first and only time I created a vehicle explosion was totally by accident. It was at the Powder Ganger encampment on I-15 just south of Jean's Skydiving, they have a small camping trailer and a big truck there around their picnic table and the perimeter is mined and they have sticks and crates of dynamite.
To get a better line of sight I snuck around to the east side and parked myself on a rock a long, long ways away and I sniped the guy at the picnic table. I didn't kill him but wounded him and he started searching, then a moment later there were a series of explosions. The first explosion sent the guy flying back towards the highway then a much larger explosion launched him into the air, he flew over the little white camping trailer where he landed on yet another landmind then that blew him into several pieces that went in all directions. THEN there was an ENOURMOUS explosion when the engine of the truck (a tractor trailer rig) exploded and sent an enourmous fireball skyward.
After everything died down I went in and I had thought that I must have hit the crate of dynamite by the truck and set it off; however, in retrospect I don't thinking sniping crates will do that. I think what happened when I shot him I was so far away he went into search mode and either he dropped his own stick of dynamite close to himself or else walked onto one of his own landminds, which blasted him into another landmine, which launched him airborne over his little RV trailer and then he landed on yet another landmine that dismembered him. Then the truck exploded.
It was so spectacular I totally forgot to screen capture him in mid-air with all the fire and explosions below.
That's just it about screenshoting though, either you take a billion shots to get the ONE perfect one or you miss some fun stuff! I do a facepalm every half hour of gameplay when I realize I could da had dat shot!
