Don't get me wrong, this is one of the greatest games I've ever played. But the FREEZING! It almost ruins the entire experience.
My game never freezes anymore. It did at first until I found this fix: (I'm not saying this will work for you, but you should try it out. I did this a couple of years ago and it fixed the freezing for me)
Find and open (backup first!!!) the fallout.ini file in "My Documents\My Games\Fallout3"
change it to
Add this line after it
Fallout 3 does not like systems with more than 2 processor cores...
You only deal in facts, but then you say bullsh*t like Mandela's hate for white people is an understatement? Or that violence and terror were the tools of his trade? Life in SA was better under white rule? Hahahahahahahahaha!!! And a bunch of other crap I can't remember (I'm on my phone so yeah)... You really don't know much about SA, do you? Do we have a huge crime problem? Yes of course! Corruption? Absolutely! But to say life was better during apartheid is the dumbest thing I've ever heard!!!
Because of the increasingly violent white supremacist apartheid government of South Africa at the time, Nelson Mandela co-founded the armed wing of the ANC known as Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK). It was founded after the horrible events of the Sharpville Massacre (if you don't know what it is, google) when South African police opened fire on protesters, killing 69, including women and children. That's when the ANC realized they had to fight to protect the people and to fight against the government which was becoming more and more violent against the people of South Africa, and that's why Nelson Mandela co founded Umkhonto we Sizwe, which used violent, terrorist tactics in the fight for freedom. With that being said though, Mandela himself NEVER supported terrorism.
Here is Mandela's "I'm prepared to die" speech:
"At the beginning of June 1961, after a long and anxious assessment of the South African situation, I, and some colleagues, came to the conclusion that as violence in this country was inevitable, it would be unrealistic and wrong for African leaders to continue preaching peace and non-violence at a time when the government met our peaceful demands with force.
This conclusion was not easily arrived at. It was only when all else had failed, when all channels of peaceful protest had been barred to us, that the decision was made to embark on violent forms of political struggle, and to form Umkhonto we Sizwe. We did so not because we desired such a course, but solely because the government had left us with no other choice. In the Manifesto of Umkhonto published on 16 December 1961, which is exhibit AD, we said:
'The time comes in the life of any nation when there remain only two choices submit or fight. That time has now come to South Africa. We shall not submit and we have no choice but to hit back by all means in our power in defence of our people, our future, and our freedom.'
Firstly, we believed that as a result of Government policy, violence by the African people had become inevitable, and that unless responsible leadership was given to canalise and control the feelings of our people, there would be outbreaks of terrorism which would produce an intensity of bitterness and hostility between the various races of this country which is not produced even by war. Secondly, we felt that without violence there would be no way open to the African people to succeed in their struggle against the principle of white supremacy. All lawful modes of expressing opposition to this principle had been closed by legislation, and we were placed in a position in which we had either to accept a permanent state of inferiority, or take over the Government. We chose to defy the law. We first broke the law in a way which avoided any recourse to violence; when this form was legislated against, and then the Government resorted to a show of force to crush opposition to its policies, only then did we decide to answer with violence."
All Mandela (and the people of this country) ever wanted, was freedom. But because of the colour of their skin, such a thing was denied to them by the government...
Mandela was against white domination, and he was against black domination. In his views, South Africa belongs to ALL South Africans, and all South Africans are equal regardless of the colour of their skin... And that is what he always stood for and fought for...
Definitely not. I would hate it if everyone recognized me whenever I go someplace to buy some toilet paper or whatever. Papz following you around everywhere or waiting at your destination? No thanks!
I'm a pretty laid back guy with a pretty laid back life, so just the thought of never being able to have a nice relaxing stroll on the beach with my wife or lunch at a cafe etc without being hounded by annoying fans or paparazzi would drive me totally insane. I would hate to be some pretentious tool whenever I appear in public like most famous people are these days...
Haha! I'm getting married towards the end of next year, but I'll have no regrets whatsoever...
And I have no regrets in my life
Just remember the two words to a long lasting relationship are "Yes Dear"
I also hear that marriage is like riding a bicycle without a seat.... And that marriage is a three ring circus the engagement ring, the wedding ring and the SUFFERING
So a bride wears white on her wedding day because white is the colour of happiness and that's the happiest day of her life... I guess there's a reason why the groom wears black...
Hells yeah you should get it!!! But I'm just saying this because I'm a huge rpg fan and I think The Elder Scrolls is the best of the best in this genre. I've been playing rpg's since the days of Baldur's Gate or thereabouts.
The great thing about most rpg's is that you get to play the way you want to play. If you're a stealthy kinda guy, then you use stealth. If you're more of a run-and-gun sort of person, then you can do that instead. I personally combine everything together and become an all-rounder. And in Skyrim that means combining stealth (archery), magic and sword/axe/mace fighting together...
Skyrim is amazing and the best in the series so far imo. The map is huge and beautiful, the atmosphere is perfect, there are tons of quests to do ranging from clearing out dungeons or caves, searching for treasures, killing dragons, bounty hunting, rescue missions, delivery, stealth, assassinations, etc. The list goes on and on. The main quest itself is not very long, but it's a good one. And all of this goes on while there's a war happening too between pro and anti empire factions. Of course you also get to choose who's side you're on. The great thing about games like this is that even after you finish the main quest (which I always tackle and complete first), the game doesn't end. There are still thousands of quests and other tasks to be done. I've spent countless hours exploring the map and there are still things I see that I've never seen before.
I've played the game at least once with every race in the game. You get to choose who you wanna play as, whether it's a native Nord, beautiful Orc, dark Dark Elf or whatever. There are 10 races to choose from, each with its own special power and fighting preference, but you can do with them whatever you want. It's all up to you.
Best advice I can give you (if you end up getting the game) is to try and find the fighting style best suited to you early on in the game. The style you're most comfortable with and stick with that. You'll only get better at it as time goes on. But you should also master other styles as well if you want to survive. There is however no right or wrong way to play games like these. Oh, and stock up on health potions as soon as possible haha. Always make sure you have plenty of those and use them dammit! Money will be pretty scarce at first, so forget about buying that sword you want. You can come back for it once you have more gold...
Now I'm not saying you are definitely gonna like the game. If you're not a fan of RPGs then you're probably gonna hate Skyrim (although I can't see how that's possible lol), but you should at least give it a try...
@Above: Fair warning, V removed the fighting system from IV. You no longer have buttons for different types of his -- in IV triangle was for kicking, square was for left punching, and circle was for right punching. In V, all you do is press O, you don't even need to press the trigger, and your character does everything. It kind of sucks. No shoving, no control over how my character fights.
That won't really bother me that much I think. Yeah I would prefer more control during a fight, but honestly I didn't fight that much in IV unless I absolutely had to. I relied more on guns to get things done
But you never know, there might be separate buttons for kicking and punching in the pc version, but I doubt it... It would be cool tho
