Am I the only one psyched to be spending all my free time on this once it releases Oct 19?

Just bought a gtx260 video card last night in preparation.

hehe, i just started playing fallout 3 a couple days ago



toggletoggle post by arktouros at Aug 20,2010 2:47pm
will be a good one.

hehe, only fallout 1 is real.



toggletoggle post by arilliusbm  at Aug 20,2010 2:51pm
obviously joking, they're all good games. never played fallout tactics too much though, was that good?



toggletoggle post by AlxNLI at Aug 20,2010 2:58pm
I'm admittedly untrue, only played fallout 3. It was an intentional choice, fuck turn-based rpg's. Only real-time combat is real.



toggletoggle post by reimroc at Aug 20,2010 6:01pm
Fallout 3 was good but an abomination of the series. Thankfully FO: NV is being developed my some of the same team from FO1/FO2. It is going to be 10000 times better than Fallout 3.



toggletoggle post by ernie   at Aug 20,2010 8:35pm
its pretty much the same thing as 3.

This. There are some of the original developers involved, yes. However, they're using the same game engine as 3, same v.a.t.s. system and combat engine, and betheseda (so?) Is stop footing the bill. This is just a sequel to fallout 3, not a return to the original.

Playing 3 now on ps3 and its a lot of fun.



toggletoggle post by reimroc at Aug 20,2010 9:41pm
haha its not the same as 3. graphically yes, but other than that they are making it more like what FO3 should've been, a next gen version of FO2. the skill/perk/ability system is the same as fallout 2, much more in depth and will effect the game MUCH more than 3's system ever did(3's MMO mechanic was non-existent). aiming can be done with iron sights. every piece of armor, ammo and item can be modded 100 different ways. you can have multiple companions/followers like FO2. multiple implants can be obtained to permanently increase skills and stats which is much more plausible than those bobbleheads.

people will still cry about it anyway.

Exactly why I play games like this and Oblivion on PC. Mods galore. Not to mention that I prefer mouse/kb with anything involving killing shit.

i literally just bought fallout 3 yesterday and played for like 6 hours last night....post apocalyptic Oblivion FTW.



toggletoggle post by C.dEAD at Aug 23,2010 10:54am
I am such a Fallout newb. It took me seeing this Vegas game to get real interested in it. Now I am goin to have pick up 3 and all the DLC to see if I would even dig the new one.

Also, Kane and Lynch 2 is the shit. Someone please play it online. No one bought it last week :(



toggletoggle post by reimroc at Aug 23,2010 12:35pm
FO1/FO2 > FO3

New Vegas will blow Fallout 3 out of the water in terms of gameplay, story, voice acting etc etc.

Besides the Rev's birthday, anyone know what today is?

bennyhillifier

I hear it's got a bunch of bugs and the side missions are boring, but I don't care. This game will be mine asap.



toggletoggle post by arktouros at Oct 21,2010 10:38am
i played for a couple hours last night thanks to torrent. refined fallout 3 engine. the stats, perks, crafting, battle systems are more complicated. this game is much more like the old fallouts in terms of having so many oppressive RPG rules, which is good. so far the story is more interesting from the start. it has an interesting way to setup your character (Rorschach test) that was almost dead on. i made a lucky, perceptive, stealthy, energy weapon-slinging scientist.

i was psyched when it asked me if i wanted to turn on hardcore mode. (faster dehydration, broken bones can only be mended with a doctor or the proper equipment, stimpacks and other meds work over time instead of instantly, etc) yes please.



toggletoggle post by Alx_Casket  at Oct 21,2010 12:43pm
I played for a couple hours this morning (thanks tpb). I didn't have the intro bug in the above video but there were some odd lag spikes that I'll look into later. I heard Obsidian already released a patch for the game, and they're also working on another one. No hardcore mode for me, I'll save that for the second play-through ;)

I'm digging the gameplay so far; don't mind that the graphics are a little dated. My character is a messikan with some deadly mutton chops.

i started this like 2 months ago but i gotta say im not addicted like i was to Oblivion...i guess i just prefer that medieval vibe much more..



toggletoggle post by Alx_Casket  at Oct 21,2010 12:58pm
I'm with you on that, but I've played the hell out of Oblivion. Needed fresh blood.

Still insanely addicted to this.

Don't mod the weathered 10mm if you preordered the game, crazy fucked up bug makes the gun unusable on xbox.

Dead Money dlc comes to PS3 and PC on 2/22, with 3 additional dlc's releasing simultaneously on all systems in the coming months...



toggletoggle post by ArrowHeadNLI at Feb 8,2011 12:09am
Jesus, I gotta start playing this again. I stalled out trying to save some pussy from being eaten at the casino without accidentally killing everyone in the building on the way out.



toggletoggle post by Slag at Mar 21,2011 2:52pm
Left with little productive work to do on my vacation, i'm installing this now. Anything I should I look out for?



toggletoggle post by arktouros at Mar 21,2011 2:55pm
considering how much you liked fallout 3, see ya next month



toggletoggle post by arktouros at Mar 21,2011 2:56pm
i haven't made it any further than lvl 15 because once again with all bethesda games, i lost my save file.



toggletoggle post by arktouros at Mar 21,2011 2:57pm
and holding out for Elder Scrolls V. no looking back.



toggletoggle post by Alx_Casket  at Mar 21,2011 3:02pm
The ending pissed me off. I made multiple save points so I could take different pathways to see the different endings but I still don't any of the endings (similar to how I felt at the end of fallout 3).



toggletoggle post by AndrewBastard  at Mar 21,2011 3:03pm
I'm trying to play shivering isles right now and it keeps saying my disk is unreadable. I want to kill myself.

After the end of fallout 3, my entire goal in New Vegas is NOT to finish. If anything smells like a major plotline, I avoid it or fuck it up.

I'm sure i'll quit it after I play it for 20 hours in the next two days :-(

First impression:

I'm totally bored with video games.



toggletoggle post by ArrowHeadNLI at Mar 21,2011 6:15pm
Oh, game is slightly lame until you get to vegas.



toggletoggle post by Slag at Mar 21,2011 6:17pm
I'm not sure if it has anything to do with this game in particular. It was pretty cool so far. I think in general, i'm just bored with video games and would rather do real shit.



toggletoggle post by Alx_Casket  at Mar 21,2011 6:27pm
Well, there is that...

I'm really enjoying this game. I just wish I could figure out how to get better guns.

Same for streaming and most books.
