    What a sweet rig. You did done good!
    Yeah, pretty much drooling right now.

    The add-ons have always been tricky. The only "light gun" game I was into was Police Enforcers (correct name?). That game was fun. Basically a police training video game. Other than that? Meh. My philosophy was the less buttons, the better (including those combo button games like MK).

    Yup. This is loaded. Everything from Pong all the way to modern-ish arcade games. Old console games too - a few ROMs were missing, but the guy knows where to get them.

    This is my upcoming birthday/opening the new hospital/surviving Donald Trump as President present, and I'd been keeping one in the back of my mind for a while, so I went for it.

    More details leaked:
    https://kotaku.com/sources-fallout-7...rpg-1826425333

    When Bethesda announced Fallout 76 with a teaser trailer this morning, promising more information at E3, it was easy to assume that the new game would be a traditional single-player role-playing game. But Fallout 76 is in fact an online survival RPG that’s heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust, according to three people familiar with the project.
    Originally prototyped as a multiplayer version of Fallout 4 with the goal of envisioning what an online Fallout game might look like, Fallout 76 has evolved quite a bit over the past few years, those sources said. It will have quests and a story, like any other game from Bethesda Game Studios, a developer known for meaty RPGs like Skyrim. It will also feature base-building—just like 2015's Fallout 4—and other survival-based and multiplayer mechanics, according to those sources. One source cautioned that the gameplay is rapidly changing, like it does in many online “service” games, but that’s the core outline.

    New fallout, no details yet. Although if you think 76 means 1776, it'll be an east coast city.
    It's Vault 76, and IIRC it's located (in game lore) in Washington DC / Virginia. It was set to open 20 or 25 years after the bombs fell. It was mentioned in both Fallout 3 and 4. This is rumored to be set ~2097/2102. So we'll actually get to see the wasteland virtually immediately after the bombs went off. It's also rumored to have an online component, no one knows if that means online co-op or massive multiplayer online.


    For those unaware of the timeline:
    Great War Starts (10/23/2077)
    Fallout (12/5/2161)
    Fallout: Tactics (1/1/2197)
    Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (2208)
    Fallout 2 (7/25/2241)
    Fallout 3 (8/17/2277)
    Fallout: New Vegas (10/19/2281)
    Fallout 4 (10/23/2287) (Prologue starts in 2277 right when the bombs fall)
    Fallout 76 ...
