"We were somewhere outside Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like, 'I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive ... ' And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming: 'Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?'"

comment Staying neutral at high levels in Fallout 3
Way ahead of you there. Been using that tactic all along. It's just at the achievement points that I want to avoid questing (or at least karma questing) altogether. The currently-assigned quest I know will result in some karmic change (the simulation in Vault 112, I believe?), so I want to be level 20 before that even begins. :)

comment is there a specific difficult scenario with the leveling problem in Oblivion?
Baurus would be that guard, I believe. And every time I've played Oblivion, I've lost Baurus and/or Jauffre in this fight. Guess that's because I'm usually level 25 or 30 when I get there, now that you mention it! :)

comment Is there any way to get the original Fallout and Fallout 2 working on a Mac?
For what it's worth, I did end up buying the Windows version of the trilogy, if only because it's about $11 + shipping, and the Mac version has a ton of reported problems now that newer Macs don't support 256-color mode. It'll either go through WINE, VMWare or BootCamp. (Probably starting at WINE.)

comment Can you max out your level in World of Xeen without cheating?
Enemies don't respawn, sadly. OK, just have to remember to keep a hex editor around then ... :)

comment In Fallout 3 (on the Xbox 360) is there any fix for the “moving PIP-Boy” bug?
Next time I get this glitch happening, I'll be sure to test it. (It just happened again the other day ... )

comment What are the different ways to kill your characters in Maniac Mansion?
I'm not 100% sure if all of these are available in all editions. EG, the NES version was censored in other places, and may have had some of these removed. (I really have no clue if that's the case or not, though.)
