Wow, this weeks list of PC games -with the exception of MLB FOM- reads like a weekly list of Wii games.
At $5 and supposedly one of the best in the series, Wonder Boy in Monster Land is a possible download. Otherwise nothing for me this week.

What's Fallout 3? Name sounds familiar.

So how does the DLC work for PC, have we had a thread on that yet?

I may have to wait until they fix the VATS pause in the PC version (unless someone already found a workaround- I haven't checked in a few days).

DJ Max fever is a DEF maybe.  After DJ Max Portable 1 and 2, I'm not sure if I want to drop $40 for a game that heavily borrows songs from the versions I've already played.

I backburnered Fallout in the fall to work through the shorter action games.  That done, I'm now onto the 2008 RPGs.  Fable is finished, and I'm halfway through Lost Odyssey.  I'm trying to decide about my next one.  Does anyone know if it's worth waiting for all the Fallout DLC to be out, and playing through with it in place (like I wish I'd done with the Fable DLC), or it is all post-FO3 completion, or standalone enough that I may as well play through Fallout next.

It is you in a simulator taking part in the Anchorage Op.  If you complete it, you get new gear to use in the main game.  That's how I understand it.  I know nothing of 'where' the simulator is



DJ Max Fever is high on my list otherwise.
Edited to Add Noabunga's Ambition... Sounds interestng.

The two initial reviews both have negative scores. However, being unable to read it as they came from print magazines means I'm still going to wait pending a review from someone I trust.

For all I know - they're giving the game a bad score for being what it is - a baseball management sim. I don't expect sharp graphics, or twitch gameplay.

Otherwise, I'll probably figure out what the latest baseball mogul / out of the park game is (what are they calling that series these days? It's been about five years since I last played one.) and just get that instead.

DF - I read the reviews. They say the game is bad all around. They had legit issues for the game as a management sim. From tough to navigate, to the lack of info. All bad.

Hope to see something different...

Cripes, I dropped F3 after getting rather tired of the repetitiveness of the missions. Also, I understand that this one is mostly fighting the Chinese. I would be happy to find that this isn't true and there's some real depth to it.

Also, how many MSP for the DLC for the 360?

well, the new drivers worked and the pause is gone, so  thumbsup

now to see if the crash I experienced after discovering the pause is gone was just a fluke.....

My resistance faded and I bought this. However, since I was in the middle of the Vault 87 quest I never got to it last night. Here's hoping it's worth it.
