    Maybe you can afford both

    This game looks fun. It's supposed to be a Sumo game but looks more like a "Drunk people" simulator. It's free btw.

    Fallout! I'm in the same situation as you, and the new Halo looks awesome, but I'm looking forward to playing Fallout too much. Also, you have a few hours of campaign gameplay for Halo vs. 100+ hours for Fallout, so I think you're getting more for your money. Though, it also does depend if you want Halo's multiplayer as well.

    But I'm getting Fallout.

    Save the money ..If you at point where you can only can get one it mean something .. You need to save of invest it more wisely .. then you can afford both later ..I wait and take my time as a game is just distraction when I am bored.... I only play them in down time to blow off stress... too many other needs to buy one game 0ver $20.. the latest addiction game wise in our house it Puzzle Quest 2 (dam it addicting as the first one) but other than that fund go to real needs not wants..

    Both of the games you want are not going to drop off the face of the earth you can save and get both or at best make sure they are on you wish list for Birthdays or X-mas or events ..

    Some time we need to save and reward our self's at later date ..if more people did this maybe more would not be in deep in bills I know if I did it more I would be better off ...

    I don't have a preference because I think I have grown up now. Whenever I play any games its very boring now. I prefer a good book these days

    BTW I used to be one of those who played games like Final Fantasy for 10 hours a day. I just have more sense now.

    But if I HAD to choose it would definitely be Fallout.

    That's because you haven't played Robot Unicorn Attack

    I'd get any game except Halo pretty much. I just don't think Halo is that good a game to be honest. Stuff that's really futuristic (especially with some of the weapon designs being as simple as they are} bores me. I've played it for X Box and PC and neither time did I really like it.

    Both games are completely derivative, sharing the basic engines and features of their predecessors (fallout 3 and halo 3) in all honesty if you've played either of those previous games you've played these ones.

    Get some fairly unique, new games such as Monday Night Combat or Limbo. Save money and have novel experiences.

    Yea but nothing is quite as much fun for me as wandering the wasteland in power armor while listening to old radio tunes. Good times.

    If I had to choose between the two I'd go for Halo.

    Game wise - Fallout will probably receive 6 dlc's which will come with the game next year in a GOTY edition. Also Fallout has an end to it. Reach never really ends thanks to multiplayer and will probably only have a couple set of maps come out for it.

    For the sake of your art - Reach. Fallout can easily take about 200-300 hours. With Reach you can limit youself to a couple rounds of multiplayer a day which leaves plenty of time for drawing.

    Though I must admit both games look amazingly good.

    Helps us on our journey. Comments and critiques are welcome.

    I second Full Throttle too; freaking awesome game.

    Don't bother looking at my sketchbook. I haven't updated that thing in years. :/

    I would personally recommend Diablo 2 with the expansion pack/or chest. Portal is also good but I only have it because they were giving it away for free for a small amount of time.

    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    As an RPG lover, I'm inclined to say Fallout. My only concern is that Obsidian's games have tended to lack polish in the technical department. If they can't put out a technically sound game with Bethesda's backing, I might start to lose faith in them.

    Looks like a toss-up between buying Halo Reach or chucking £35 down the toilet and spinning round in the dark for four hours. That's if Reach is anything like the last abortive effort. I think I'll save my money and wait for Bioshock Infinite.
