Yeah, I don't necessarily disagree, it's just not for me.  I never enjoyed gaming with a mouse and keyboard, which was my primary reason years ago for not getting into it.  (I know you can controllers now.)  I also generally don't have the money to spend on the internal components for a killer rig.  Add to that my small monitor, uncomfortable chair, etc etc, and it always ends up costing a lot more than buying a console.

Plus, I'm biased.  There's just something I love about console gaming.  Brings me back to the NES days.  :-)  Hunkering down in my living room is a lot more comfortable for me.

Oh I agree with you there. Console gaming is by far more my thing. But for games like Fallout, which require you to spend large chunks of time on them to get anywhere, I can't go console. My wife and kids would strangle me for taking up so much time. I have to go with my work PC during dead times to get away with spending the necessary hours to get anywhere.

I'm enjoying the new "build a settlement" feature in this latest iteration. Not enjoying that I'm low on ammo and starting to see super mutants and the like. Gonna need to find some kind of supply of ammo soon.

I was just about to start on the "build a settlement" feature. Man, theyve turned basic enemies into terrifying beasts. I found out the hard way you can't run from a radscorpion.

Man, I'm feeling left out. These games always appealed to me but I'm at the point in life where getting into gaming would be counter productive. I did get a PS3 at a garage sale so I'll probably pick up part 3 and play it.

Truthfully, if it weren't for the fact I do very little at work in the slow times aside from make major decisions, answer phones, the occasional filling in/filing of documents and occasional manual labor, I would have no reason to spend money on games like this. I could not justify spending a lot of home time on a game, nor would I want to. The only game I'll end up spending any long hours on at home will be the next Mass Effect, and that will be late at night.

Man, are you hiring a personal assistant?

I picked up 3 today. We'll see if I still got it.

I'm not the only one who goofs off in the slow times. The secretaries watch soap operas and surf the web. The serviceman watches the news. The delivery guys sit around in the garage at the bulk plant gossiping like little old ladies. If it's not busy, it's REALLY not busy. We only have like 3 or 4 months of "busy". The rest of the time it's sporadic at best.

RetroDaze is my "side business". And by "business" I mean a pit that I throw money down into, and Moudy catches.

Yeah, once you hit a certain age, spending a lot of times on video games is pretty hard.  I LOVE gaming, but I barely get to.  I teach, write, and sculpt as my main "jobs," and that takes up quite a bit of time.  Usually I get to squeeze in some gaming during the holidays, and between semesters, if I'm lucky.

I have to admit, I had wondered if this site was monetized, as it appears not to be.

So I picked up part 3 at Gamestop and within the first 10 minutes the game froze twice. Apparently this is a well documented issue on the PS3. Kind of a bummer, I'll try it again tonight and if it doesn't work, return it.
