Incidentally, I'm now facing a similar decision with Borderlands 2. I think only the multiplayer really appeals to me here so no point in getting the Game of the Year edition at three times the price, right?
I never play Bethseda games much for actual progression to beating the game, just character progression and exploration.
Today being the last full day of the Steam Winter Sale,
Thematically you can really tell that F:NV is more of a true "sequel" to Fallout II because of the state of the world, where Fallout III's world gave off the feeling that the nuclear bombs went off a couple years ago and everything is trashed F:NV has a world which is in throws of being reconstructed with civilization starting to pull itself together.
Hey, on the plus side I built a basic PC to serve as an emulation machine for my daughter this Christmas, with MAME, and emulation utilities for Nintendo, Super Nintendo, N64, and Sega Genesis. As a longtime member of the PC Master Race I actually am completely unfamiliar with anything ever released on those console systems, so if anyone could make some recommendations for fun, easy games than I can play with her I'm all ears. Mario Kart is too difficult for her but I was hoping to find something with a similar co-op emphasis.
N64: Mario Kart 64, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Banjo Kazooie, Paper Mario, Super Mario 64, Super Smash Bros are the premier kids games imo, and relatively easy. Maybe Mario Tennis, Mario Party.
Are they all sort of farmville simpleton strategy games or do any approach the level of a solid Paradox title or Civilization? I'm pretty confidant that anything browser-based is going to fall well short, but anything promising or at least worthy of killing the occasional hour with?
Worthy of killing the occasional 15 minutes? Sure. Whole hour at a time? Probably not, outside of the very first hour. Most of those games have a free component that is heavily weighted with time penalties. If you want to pay for whatever the speed up currency is, then have at it, but if you do that you can quickly spend way more than the game is worth.
Can you play multiplayer games on Steam that you bought the CD for?
One thing OR's founder said in response to the well-deserved vitriol he's received since selling to the online rectal probes at Facebook is that VR technology like Oculus Rift has already attracted the interest of well-capitalized technology groups (like Sony, most notably) and thus it was too important for OR's future to eschew the value of this influx of capital right now. I can't say I disagree with that sentiment, but it is good to be reminded that we will have alternatives.
