Fallout 3 Series Developer: Bethesda Game Studios Genre: Action RPG, Open world Engine: Gamebryo Platforms: Microsoft Windows                     PlayStation 3                     Xbox 360 Release Date: October, 2008 Expansions: Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookoutand Mothership Zeta. Fallout 3 New Vegas (October 2010)

Fallout 3 is one of the best Open World RGP games based on the post apocalyptic journey through the Washington, DC wasteland, the game has a lot to offer in lines with World Map, Story, Weapons, Tools and AI (humans, machines and mutants), the best part about this game is that no matter how many times you play, depending upon the choices you make the game has something different to offer, you could choose to be good, evil or neutral.   
The plot involves finding the characters father by following clues left by him and making a decision to follow in his footsteps in saving humanity or not.
The Game play is very crisp with realistic graphics and works fine …

Essential Software After Fresh OS Install

Most of us don’t like to format our Hdds even if we know it’s needed, the reason being, besides creating a backup for the data, all the software and settings would need to be reinstalled which is quite painstaking and time consuming, especially for those who like to experiment at the cost of their computers and need to format often.
It’s best to make a master DVD of all the 3rd party software along with motherboard CD and other drivers that are required on a fresh OS.  (It’s better to back up your browser bookmarks as well i.e. .Json file for Firefox)
Mentioned below is 3rd party software (Freeware) that I recommend after a fresh OS install depending upon your needs
Drivers: Most required drivers will be included in the Motherboad, Graphics Card, Keyboard and LAN Card Disk The common drivers are .NET Framework and Direct X 9.0/10.0/11.0
Browser and Plugins: I would recommend FIREFOX or Google CHROME don’t forget to install their respective FLASH   PLAYERs or no YouTube videos J

Shimla – HP

Image
Reached Shimla HP at about 6:15 pm, it was extremely difficult to find a Budget hotel after spending about 35-40 mins with our luggage we settled for Hotel – Vatika @ INR 350 which is below the market area of Manali, about 15 mins walk. The hotel was undoubtedly the worst budget hotel we stayed in the mattress below the sheets had stains there was graffiti inside the cupboard doors, the wiring for the mains in the rest room was exposed, since it was a question of one night so we decided to tough it out. The next day Sep’28 we explored the area near the Shimla market also called as the Mall, visited the Trishul bakery for some tasty treats, the Rendezvous Bar and the Christ Church near the Ridge, unfortunately it was closed at the time, it is the second oldest church in Northern India. This was the only place during our journey that we spotted a pizza shop; the area is very similar to the Fort area in Mumbai in terms of Architecture and people density.

Manali – HP

Image
Reached Manali - HP at 5:30 pm after a few attempts we finally found a budget Hotel – Vijayant @ INR 300 per day, the room had a good view of the market area of Manali, there is SBI ATM near the strip.
Sep’23 we trekked about 2km from the Manali market to Hidimba Devi Temple which is an ancient cave temple dedicated to Hidimbi Devi, sister of Hidimba, who was a character in the Indian epic, Mahabharata, The temple is surrounded by a cedar forest at the foot of the Himalayas. The sanctuary is built over a huge rock jutting out of the ground, which was worshiped as an image of the deity. The structure was built in the year 1553.










About 1.5 km from Hidimba Temple we reached the interiors of the sanctuary, on the way up the hill there are apple plantations and small huts along with cement houses, overall the hike was refreshing since the way to Hidimba Temple was toxic due to traffic and narrow roads.
Sep’24 we trekked about ½ km to the river bank temple which is just behind the Manali bus…
