Fallout 3 - No cd but allow WLFG - Page 2

post #11 of 21
I use Virtual CD 9 with latest updates to mount an image and it works with all of my games. Only COD4 wouldn't allow me to play in Multiplayer mode... These games are too massive...

You either download it from steam and get a steam version or buy a retail copy and get it as a standalone.
As for Valve games, you buy the retail copy and its still the Steam version without the need for a cd.

Unfortunatly, a download of 6gb or w/e would take forever on my home connection. As for my Uni connection, wouldn't take that long but im not at Uni for much longer

As for alcohol, well that might not work as it uses WLFG and it might ban me
Hmm...I guess it's really connection based. I can download this stuff ~0.7-1MB per second (uni connection).

I wouldn't recommend any of the cd emulation type software (because of drm?)...I'd wait for Bethesda to release an official patch.

Then again...they have a lot of bugs to patch, so it might be a while

Did you have to edit your registery?

Lol ->1Mb a sec on Uni connection..isn't that kind of slow.
On campus we can download from steam at like 8/9Mbps or from the Microsoft Dev Network at like 15Mbps (Thats 15,000kbps download speed or w/e)

Our Uni house is 2Mbps and home is like 200kbps lol

- Easy, convenient, auto-updates, no CD required, downloadable whenever you need to install it, and no extra crap that you will never look at after one viewing.


Retail


Game on DVD

What happens if you lose the disc? Or break it? You're basically SOL.

Case

Just more space taken up in your house. How often do people actually handle the case after they buy the game? I never do. If I buy a disc-based game, I install the game, and put the case somewhere out of the way, and I never touch it again unless I'm moving everything.

Manual

Who ACTUALLY reads manuals to video games? Everything the manual tells you is typically learned in the first 10 min of playing.

Bobblehead

Again, more junk, unless you actually want the thing.

Collectors Lunchbox

Like it'll actually be worth anything anyways... Again, more useless stuff.

Making of Fallout 3

Who cares? Play the game. I know some people may think it's interesting, but I'll bet you can find that on Youtube if you really care about it.

Fallout 3 art book

Why? I mean, honestly, why? Look at it once, then done.



My main point is that Steam is just super-convenient. You never need disks, you can download it anywhere at anytime, it's auto-updated... It's just far more worth it. And do you REALLY want all of that extra crap that comes with that set? I mean, think about it, how often are you actually gonna look at those things? It's just a waste of space, imo.

Plus, it costs just as much buying it on steam than it is buying it in stores here in the US... So I guess your situation is a bit different.

What i mean is you get more for exactally the same price or less.

Would you buy a computer that had say my sig rig for £600

OR

would you buy a computer that was the same as my sig rig for £600 but it came with a blu-ray player aswell as the standard DVD player, a fan controller and some extra USB slots even though you may never use any of these extra features.

I think you would buy the latter.

And when people are bidding and buying the bobblehead at prices between £10-£20
And some of the extra stuff is pretty good if I say so

Well, that computer analogy doesn't really work since the extra stuff there is actually useful in some way . But I know what you mean.

Also, the collector's edition in the US is like, $70, as compared to normal retail of $50... So in your case, yea, it's a deal .

Launch C:\\Games\\Bethesda Softworks\\Fallout 3\\fallout3.exe
or wherever it's kept.

Mine runs fine without the dvd. Only need the disc to run the launcher for tweaking settings.

Try this?
