    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 ...

    2. Fallout 76

    New fallout, no details yet. Although if you think 76 means 1776, it'll be an east coast city.

    The new Acer is pretty beefy (Intel Core i7 7th gen 2.8 GHz, GeForce GTX 1070, 16 GB RAM) but I understand that the game is so crappily optimized that it might not matter. (Apparently they ported it assuming 3.2 GHz, the clock speed of the Xbox 360, and any deviation from this number in either direction including across multiple cores causes it to crap the bed.)

    The mod is called Gentlemen of the Row, BTW.
    I never played it. Bought it packaged with the others because it was like $2.

    Ive read the same things you did, including the mods.

    Supposedly there's a giant community mod that (somewhat) fixes it and adds a ton of new stuff (the flaming chainsaw launcher and tactical nuke flamingo launcher are cute.)

    Probably wait for a Steam sale.

    Got my laptop up and running and am paying my tribute to Gaben.

    Rebought a bunch of tables on Pinball Arcade because they had a licensing snafu with Bally/Williams and all those tables will not be available after June 30.

    Also rebought Binding of Isaac because I wanted the Antibirth add-on.

    Cuphead and Fire Pro Wrestling World are probably next.
