Heh heh. There's a perk that shows you the location of every place on the map. I don't have it, because I like exploring.

So, this game doesn't play nice with Win 7 but with a couple of tweaks I've managed to play without too much trouble. Definitely worth the effort.

Fallout 3 is one of my favourites but haven't attempted it on my Windows 7. Right now I am playing Might and Magic X and enjoying it. Maybe I'll try it next unless something new comes out.

Just be prepared to follow the tweaks on the Steam forum. I still get several freezes a day, but they tend to cluster in specific areas, 90% of the time in indoor locations during combat. It isn't bad enough to make me stop playing, that's for sure.

Just as an update. By using the tweaks, especially by editing the .ini file, I've had the game running flawlessly on my Win 7 laptop for weeks. Only one crash in all that time.

And now I get to start Fallout New Vegas for the first time.

Ain't life grand?! I'm playing Metro 2033 right now and loving it.

I have about 15 games lined up for playing right now. Life is grand, indeed.
