I just played Fallout 3 on my EeePC. I'm using TightVNC, sitting at my parents house playing Fallout 3 from my home computer through the netbook. It's a very bizarre experience.

Yeah, how'd you get a netbook to run Fallout 3?

I sure bet it's quite bizarre. Any serious lag?

It handled it very poorly. Lag made it unplayable, but it was able to run. smile I upgraded the RAM and softclocked it. Other than hardcore 3D games, this little thing does everything I want. The Sims, Fallout 1&2, and all my emulators. What more do I need?

Also, my parents watch crappy TV, and I was doing laundry...Nothing to do but fuck around on the computer.

Wait, so you played the game through the network on a shitty netbook? So it used the requirements of your regular PC and that was the one doing all the work just to put it on your netbook, sounds like that gaming service Onlive. Pretty cool idea.
