    Use the D-Fend frontend also, makes it much more user friendly, and customizable.

    Nobody's mentioned yet "The Fall - Last Days of Gaia"? How come?

    AFAIK, this game is already available in Germany and when it comes to the rest of the world - it will hit the stores really soon (this year I guess).

    To find out more about it - check its homepage. Looks pretty cool.

    If they fix the bugs.

    This has been talked about for a long time in the news forum.

    didnt someone from Fallout join The Fall: Last DayZ of Gaya team to finish it up? It looks a lot like their mercenary soldiers game whatever its called. And that was pretty decent for its time. And...for a german game BWAHHAHAHA

    *runs away waving iguana on a stick*

    ps: Is it possible to pretend WoW is Fallout? Im gona give it a whirl finally

    the problem is that although its already released in germany , it will take some more months before releasing in english :(

    talking bout apocalyptic games, here is a freeware game LOL anybody know it? anybody played it? worth installing?

    http://abaddon.igerard.com/index.html

    this is NOT "The Fall" lol its a freeware game i found on your links section

    Yep, we're covering abaddon as well. I haven't played it, though, it's someone's private pet project.

    But besides that, could you please try to restrain yourself with all of the 'lol'? It's rather annoying, and no one on this board will appreciate, especially because 'lol' is generally completely senseless, sice I doubt your laughing out loud when you say that abaddon is a freeware game, since, well, there's nothing funny about that.

    Whatever happened to <g>?

    If you mean any fallout, then Commandos is a little like Fallout Tactics, and it is more of a Fallout game than F:BOS

    Did any of you play Burntime? It's '93 Amiga/pc title.

    http://www.classicgaming.com/amigareviews/burntime.htm#burntimecu

    "Burntime is set after the Nuclear Holocaust has occurred, and you are one of the few survivors. What was once a beautiful place has become a barren wasteland, with small isolated settlements dotted around populated by savages, mutants and bounty hunters. Your aim is a simple one – you have to survive. You need to find enough food and water to stay alive, while keeping your head and your body joined at the neck. You will have to kill most of the people you come across to steal their possessions and even beat the stuffing out of dogs just to give yourself something to eat. I know it sounds disgusting, but hey, it is a wilderness out there.

    Actually there is something more to the game than just that. To make your life that little bit more comfortable, you do actually have a firm aim – to rule the world"

    Redline...I wonder why nobody has mentioned it.Allthough it doesn't work on an rp system it's still post apocalyptic and it has got propably the meanest looking vehicles I know.

    It might be a little hard to find though.Try it

    Redline also has the worst vehicle physics *I* know. It uses the same physics model for vehicles and people. Ugh...

    why would you not want to play fallout 2 anyway. I STILL find new crap in it and it makes me lol everytime i play it.

    I did get World of Warcraft and you can find some desert areas, dress up like Mad Max and run around with a shotgun blasting scorpions. There are mutant ghouls in it too which is fun.

    http://arcanum.sierra.com/ - there are still some active fan site links with TONS of information/FAQs about the game (even the game site has a decent FAQ about the game)

    my wife ordered me a copy of it a couple weeks ago, came in the mail last thursday. i am totally addicted... playing a human technologist firearms expert. the next run may be an elven mage or subtefuge type.

    the way the races interact with each other and there seems to be multiple solutions or path to solve some of the quests... so playing the near opposite of what i am playing now may prove to be a whole different experience in places.

    probably won't either - i had to order it online.

    only 15 bux with shipping... the docs are in PDF format tho, but still worth the $$
