Did you know about half of Fallout 1's soundtrack (and by extension large parts of FO2 and NV's soundtracks) either uses samples or takes elements from Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Vol.II? Desert Wind is probably the most egregious example, basically being a re-edit of Grey Stripe.

>>116192 >Fallout 4 is a godawful trashfire I take it mods couldn't fix that one this time?
>>116180 another little known fact, the three tracks that are included with the van buren beta that was leaked on NMA a decade ago are all tracks from a 2001 album: Funeral Songs. https://www.discogs.com/Various-Funeral-Songs/release/92304 Specifically, it's: A Funeral Dirge For B.R, Night Cortage And The Procession Of Souls(I added custom names to the ones I uploaded). I just found that out the other day, I thought those were tracks made by a professional composer specifically for the game, but it turns out they are independently made tracks that each celebrate the death of a loved one. That just makes them even more metal >>116192 >Fallout 4 is a godawful trashfire as well Yes, but whetever you like it or not, many people still play fallout 4 because fallout 5 will only get worse, and because you can play new vegas only so often before it becomes physically painful to continue. Also, with mods, it can be made halfway decent, and that's good enough for some people. I'm hoping that I can lead these people to mods that will give them content that might make the game halfway resemble an actual RPG one day

>>116361 >watching an hour and a half long video to refute it when the premise is facially absurd nah
Reminder that New Vegas's weapon design, while let down by the horrible combat, is perhaps the top five of all shooter/RPG hybrids. >weapons are never direct upgrades in everything, so there's generally reason to keep using your older weapon, such as lower capacity, rarer ammo, <while the 357 revolver has a much higher per shot damage, the 9mm pistol has a substantially higher magazine capacity and fire rate that give it a marginally better DPS against less armored targets <while the service rifle is better than the varmint rifle in fire speed and magazine capacity, the varmint rifle has a scope and suppressor >perk support from Cowboy, Grunt and Handloader allow a character to use "obsolete" weapons better than their "upgrade" at the cost of perks >not all tiers have each "type" of weapon, which combined with the above makes it less immediately obvious they're even divided into tiers >unique weapons break from tiers entirely and encourage exploration/quests >damage threshold system armor uses is less retarded than the damage reduction system nearly all such games use
>>116442 Adding onto that, nearly all of New Vegas's weapons look like actual guns that exist. Unlike the weapons bethesda came up with for Fallout 4

>>116243 My curiosity got the better of me.

If I play a sequel to Planescape: Torment and it's a Diablo clone I'm going to be disappointed. >perks are better than skills because a completely new ability is more interesting than making a number go up This would be a good argument if Fallout 4's perks weren't riddled with choices that just make a number go up. The reality is that sometimes numbers need to go up without doing anything particularly novel to represent gradually increasing competence. Perks (or feats, or edges, or whatever the system chooses to call them) and skills serve two different purposes and trying to cram one into the other is dumb. I can safely conclude now that he's just a fucking retard and not someone who's actually on to something.

>>116152 >Fallout Thread >What are you playing? Wasteland 3. It was mediocre up until you had to choose to side with the Patriarch(y) or help Angela Deth smash the system, at which point it completely went to shit. Still, 10/10 compared to Bethesda Fallout. Gameplay is expectedly simplified for the console market, but more or less balanced and passable until I got about half-way through Yuma at which point enemies started getting absurd damage output and AP pools letting them hit hard even through power armor - and hit up to four-five times in combat whereas I was lucky to get two attacks with maxed out Coordination, Speed, and Awareness. Even when taking advantage of charged shots to the body to take out enemy armor, it was a dangerous slog. Thankfully, enemy AI tends to target deployable gear first so my mechanic would just drop a few laser turrets and a spider droid thing while my team picked off enemies from a distance. I was also able to talk my way out of both final boss fights. Which wasn't hard to do since even with low INT, it's easy enough to max at least 3 skills on each character in a party of six which will cover most of your skill bases via specialists. I did skip out on Leadership and Animal Taming because they didn't seem as useful. As for the story: **I don't know if the game is pozzed or just badly written in a rush to meet launch deadlines. They completely fucked over Angela Deth's character and turned her into a hypocritical anarchist who's trying to get you to join her side by doing the exact same shit she's condemning the Patriarch for doing. Except he formed a stable society, and her revolution would just end up seeing both Colorado and AZ completely fucked by raiders in the name of "independence". She was full of big ideals about the people choosing for themselves, rather than be oppressed by a tyrant, but - and maybe this is just lazy writing - the people are pretty much all for the Patriarch. You do see rebels and discontents - but they're just generic filler characters when the story needs them. Their side is never really explored. Only one of the Hundred Families was really agitating for open elections, and they were eliminated - but you find out (after you've made your decision on who to support) that it wasn't even the Patriarchs fault or on his orders. Yeah, he had dirty dealings with raiders, but it kept the raiders at bay - he was hoping long enough to make Colorado Springs stable enough to fight them off. But while those deals were in place, he couldn't have free elections jeopardizing those deals coming to light and being dissolved. He always - and it's confirmed in the ending - intended to transition CS to a democracy after they could defend their territory. He turns out to be an honorable man in a distasteful situation, and when he is able to - he fulfills all of his promises to the Rangers and his people to the best of his abilities. And Angie would destroy all of that, using largely the same methods of cutting distasteful deals with raiders to get them to fuck off to Kansas - even when their stated goal is to come back and conquer when they have regained strength. Meanwhile, Colorado will still be fucked because she's happy with the "freedom" of a power vacuum letting everyone splinter off and fight each other. She chides you on the needless death that results because of your decisions, but then infiltrates and subverts your compound with spies and leads a civil war amongst the Rangers. And it's not even your goddamned fault that the Hoon family got wiped out. It was the fault of the Dorseys who raided it in response to you surviving their attack on the Ranger caravan. You (or at least I) just didn't respond in time because I was busy putting out fires somewhere else securing a convoy of Power Armor for the local police to defend CS against a Dorsey attack. Bitch, if you're listening to my radio chatter, why didn't you help them? Why do I get the moral blame for something someone else does? I have no idea what the fuck they were thinking with her character. She's presented in a way that she's intended to be the "moral compass" - and the last of the original Ranger squad from Wasteland 1 - the last of the old "true" ideals. But then she betrays all of those ideals, twists her morals, acts like a big fucking hypcrite who needlessly starts a war and kills tons of people - just so she can play the liberator against a "tyrant" that already had one foot in the grave. The Patriarch had a degenerative disease that was going to kill him in a few years. She couldn't just... you know, wait two or three years? Maybe help build up the Colorado Rangers, get the people on her side before deciding to liberate them against their will, get in good with the Patriarch - and then take an active role in the transition to a new government, which is exactly what happens anyhow if you side with him. I legitimately can't tell if she's supposed to be the bad guy in all of this or not. Some meta commentary on good ideals taken too zealously and to their extreme outcomes that only cause more suffering. But then... this is also the same game where you have to feed a Ronald Reagan AI construct to a hive of communist Robots where he suffers for eternity. Well, you don't have to - but they're written in such a way that the Gippers are religious fanatics that are unable to compromise, and the robot communes are all peace loving hippies that just want to help and get along. They were trying to liberate the Reagan AI for the sake of setting him free, while the Gippers wanted to transfer his mind into a human host and make him their god-king that would conquer the wastes. There is no peaceful resolution or middle-road, and it's a required story quest. You also have to side with the robots if you want to support the Patriarch because the human host the Gippers want to kill in order install Reagan into his cranium is the Patriarch's son - and returning the boy alive is a condition of his aid to the Rangers.** Still a much better story than Fallout 4 though.
>>116520 The best solution to reagan is to screw over both factions by holding the AI hostage at ranger base. The robots hate you, but they're inconsequential and the Gippers are forced to supply oil to Colorado springs while also not murdering the patriarch's son.
>>116525 Doesn't that also put you on shaky ground with the Patriarch, though? I thought that was kind of a bargaining chip move for making an independent power play if you wanted the Rangers to take over Colorado for themselves - but unlike New Vegas, that didn't seem to be a wise move. It would have made you the villain in a hostile land, and completely fucked over the Rangers in AZ who needed the aid. It's basically the "AZ is completely fucked - we're fucking off and starting over in CO" option.
>>116532 Nope, he doesn't give a fuck it's a completely win win situation for the rangers and the patriarch, you only fuck over the two factions that are small time players in the grand scheme of things. You can then go for whatever good ending you're aiming for.
>>116534 Well I fucked that one up royaly then. That disco bot helper did come in handy though, since I didn't have any ranks in Animal Friendship and he can heal, do decent chip damage, and disorient enemies.

It's too bad there will never be a RPG like Fallout 1/2 but with Jagged Alliance 2's gameplay.
>>116610 there is fallout tactics, you know. you should at least give it a go, not like anythihg else is going on with fallout atm >>116492 not him, but I don't remeber him mentioning diablo. And he's right that the game can be played without picking up loot, as 95% of it is either useless, garbage weapons and armor or literal garbage that only gets used in the town crafting minigame. Only a few weapons and armor are worth a damn, and once you get their upgrades, you don't need junk for anything, except for repairing your power armor, as you don't need weapon or armor parts anymore for standard equipment. I agree with you on the perks issue, the perk system in f4 was a good idea in a vaccum, but it simply wasn't properly implemented by bethesda. It could work better if it replaced the perk system, but the skill trees were still in the game, even in the same broken, easily exploitable way as they were implemented in skyrim(obviously, how nv and oldschool games handled it would have been even better) Overall, the video does bring up a few good points, but at the end of the day, he's still trying to defend a trash game, which is like trying to justify eating a turd

>>116243 Fallout 4 is a mixed bag. It has worse RPG elements and dialogue than Fallout 3 but a better world and gunplay. It has the worst Fallout expansion Bethesda has ever made (Nuka World) but also the best (Far Harbor).
>>116686 >It has worse RPG elements and dialogue than Fallout 3 but a better world and gunplay. Having worse dialogue than FO3 is quite the achievement, and having better gunplay than FO3 doesn't mean much. When you're sacrificing so much in the setting, story, and reactivity compared to an actually good Fallout game like New Vegas, going from being a terrible shooter to a merely below average shooter isn't enough to make up for that. FO4 does have some actual advances. The settlement system is a neat idea and modders have done some cool stuff with it. Crafting is better than it's been before, though for some reason western devs still have not figured out how to make actually good crafting systems (it should be easy, just rip off Atelier). >It has the worst Fallout expansion Bethesda has ever made (Nuka World) but also the best (Far Harbor). I disagree on both counts. Mothership Zeta is worse than Nuka-World and the Pitt is the best Bethesda Fallout expansion.
>>116686 but nuka world is one of their better dlcs. it adds a whole new faction you can side with(raiders aka fun minutemen), good amount of lore, fun locales and weapons/armor. it is also the only part of f4 where you can actually be evil if you want to talk about their worst expansions, that would be their workshop dlc, due to the fact alone that they add no real content, aside from what you can get for free on nexus. all of it should have been scrapped and the time and budget spend on making one more story driven dlc, where you ressurect your spouse(cut content) and get to see the institute fleshed out a little. or a post game dlc, which actually shows you what happens next, and gives you more missions for your faction, if you play as them
>>116707 >I disagree on both counts. Mothership Zeta is worse than Nuka-World and the Pitt is the best Bethesda Fallout expansion. Mothership Zeta is garbage but I think Nuka-World is worse because it actually could've been something. They made a huge zone with tons of assets and then just completely wasted it. Looking back I think they were testing the waters for Fallout 76 by making a DLC with barely any story or NPC's, just to see how people would react. >>116724 >but nuka world is one of their better dlcs They squandered so much potential. There's the main quest, where you just clear the five parks then storm the power plant, that's all the story you get. Then there's the Hubologist quest, which takes all of ten minutes to complete. And finally the collect-a-thon quest, which would've just been a secret in a better expansion. That's it, that's all you get. They made this great worldspace and then gave you no reason to give a shit about anything or anyone in it. It's a huge step down from Far Harbor.
>>116743 >They squandered so much potential. True, but that's par for the course in this game(and for bethesda in general), so this doesn't stick out so much >bland, boring quests like I said, they added in a whole new faction to the game(Raiders), so most of the focus of the DLC is doing the game's equivalent of their main story quests. They are the more "Fun" Minuteman alternative, so vast majority of their actual questline is just taking over settlements in the commonwealth(rather than building them up via boring fetch quests with preston), but the "interesting" quests, the ones that take you to the 5 park locations, I think it's more about exploring them than what you actually get to do there(collect x, kill y ect. just boring stuff you do in the main game anyways) When you look at it all objectively, it's bland and boring, but when you compare it to the rest of the content in fallout 4 itself, it's actually above average on all marks. I should mention that there are several mods that improve raider playthrus, like the "kill all NPCs" mod so you can kill preston and anyone else you don't like, nuka world plus that lets you actually take over the 5 parks and build in them(that includes converting them to raider bases later on), and a mod that lets you make your own "main quest". I forgot what it's called, but it basically lets you blow up other faction headquarters(minuteman castle, railroad HQ tunnels, the prydwen, the institute) as any character, so you can actually properly finish the game as a raider, but it also gives you a bonus in a form of being able to blow up diamond city, if you want. Speaking of F76, from what little I saw of it, I know you can now do quests for raiders, and properly side with them now. I hope they let you side with a proper raider faction like this in the future, so you can finish the game on your own terms as a raider warlord without a need for mods
>>116520 >and returning the boy alive is a condition of his aid to the Rangers. It isn't which is even worse.The conditions for the ending panels are ONLY who you side with a the end, and who you side with affects what you do with Liberty.You can kill both of his sons and still get the support ending.I left his son as Regan but I am worried it will lead to some wars later,on the other hand Rangers help every major faction in the region that means anything, so no matter who wins the Rangers will have their support.If you have the Marshalls at Loved lvl and talk to sherif Daisy she says she would support the Rangers if they start a coup. It's a CIA kind of play
>>116686 >image C-can I hug him?
>>116536 They fucked Animal Whispering if you give it to any of the companions instead of the 4 main characters.They will make your animal dissapear during the Ranger Civil War and you can't get it back.I had a honey badger from the Massacre Site as my animal and he was an unkillable beast
>>116376 >Calls someone a cuckchanner >Haters >Las Vegas babies You can stop trying to fit you low iq nigger. Fallout 4 is complete shit, the collecting shit is boring, the storyline is awful, the gunplay is medicore, and the dlc is literally needed to make the game even somewhat interesting without mods otherwise mods are a must to enjoy the game.

I'm sure if it comes out, it's going to have the same dialogue system as Fallout 4 and same lack of skills, and the morality is going to be black and white and the characters are going to be bland as hell, but they'll find some superficial reason as to why it "fixes" FO4's problems, like maybe there's more choices to be made or something.

You retards have to give them a bone and not just automatically dismiss anything they made, just because OW wasn't as good as NV(And honestly, I doubt anything they make ever will be, including NV2, if it ever happens) As long as they have at least one competent writer(Tim Cain, for example), I have a reason to play thru their game at least once, even if it is complete dogshit at the end of the day

>>117516 That whole civil war bit was really contrived and forced. It would make sense if I sided with Angela, because most of the CO Rangers were either hand-picked out of Patriarch's Milita and CS Marshals - or they were locals who were loyal to the Rangers because of the Ranger's reputations or because they'd been helped out by them. It was obvious that going against the Patriarch would cause a civil war right from the beginning - but when your interests align, there should be no reason for dissent. Yet there I was, caught in the middle of it, because fuck you - we're not writing a whole new scenario just because you didn't do what we wanted you to. The whole idea that Connie Zeng could flip your Rangers so quickly is horse shit, unless Angela was stacking your recruits with undercover loyalists to her - in which case, that's even more evidence that she really was the goddamned villain the whole time. Almost everybody stationed there was a local who grew up under the Patriarch's rule - and while a lot of them were coming around to the Ranger's way of doing things - their newness to the ideals would have just strengthened their loyalty to my party as the fountainhead of those ideals, not to some random bitch who wanted to tear down the system. They even lined up the refugees I was taking in and putting to work, and just went down the line and fucking executed them. Yeah... that's Ranger ethics 101 right fucking there. Good call Angela.

>>118470 I played it. I had fun for the first hour because the gun play was competent, but my interest in the game dropped off considerably after the first planet, hell, even during the first planet my interest was dropping off since I could only be bashed over the head with "corporations bad!" so many times. I realized this game probably wasn't New Vegas tier on story when it gives you feedback for being either a corporate stooge or a retarded hippy, where they should have just left it up to the player. Also, the side characters really grated on me. Like the poo-in-loo and her contrived lesbian romance Pic included so you can't move the goalpost and say I'm lying
>>118478 Nice touch with the finger there, Sonypony. I pirated the game myself. Played it for a few hours with a focus on heavy weapons. When the poo-in-loo wanted to bring her stronk indapendynt leader whamen friend on board, I told her no. She didn't like that, obviously. I decided to uninstall the game after telling her to get the fuck off my ship. Saw the endings on the wiki, they are NOT good. In one of them, she apparently starts a romance with the buttugly ship AI. This game was lacking in every way, especially the weapons. Hell, not even the philantrophists are written in an interesting way, just straight up "man bad, woman good", absolute bullshit. No, I can't say I liked it.
>>118502 Actually, that reminds me, after meeting the chinese lady who's in charge on that mining station, if you have Parvati with you, she'll comment on the chink's "strong arms", which actually made me mad, because I was a dude with max strength (for the heavies). She never commented on that! NOBODY comments on your stat choices except for picklerick in the very beginning. Then I found out Obsidian removed player romances because they thought it would, and I fucking quote, "limit player choice". well, fine, I only liked the priest and the robot anyway. To hell with everybody else.
>>118478 I recognize that hand.
>>118506 >Obsidian removed player romances You know I was going to say that Chris hated writing romance but then I remembered Chris didn't work on this game. At least I am fairly certain he didn't.
>>118506 Yea and then they lobotomized the priest half way through the game. I hated every goddamn character in the game. >>118513 They would have cut his content anyway for probably being too good compared to the shit that tries to pass off as good writing in the game.
>>118478 >PissPoor Post discarded
>>118513 >Chris hated writing romance >Chris has problems writing male/female interactions Huh. Kind of makes sense that he'd be bad at that. Still think that Microsoft should headhunt him, or at least give him an open freelancer contract, so that he can bounce between InExile, Obsidian, and Bethesda as needed. For all his faults, he's still got more talent than the vast majority of game writers out there. For that matter, Microsoft can surely afford to keep Kirkbride's cocaine closet fully stocked. He'd be another good semi-independent get. I'd still like to see what a Kirkbride/Avellone team up could look like with TESVI. Maybe Ziets too. I haven't played Torment or PoE, but I liked Mask of the Betrayer.
>>117983 >He's actually defending bait biting What's wrong with you?
>>118616 >Implying Kirkbride would be satiated with only a single closet full of cocaine
>>118478 >no timestamp I will give you the benefit of the doubt because you also bothered to make a somewhat coherent post Anyways, good for you. I don't care if anybody likes the game or not, but they should at least play the game fully once before making a point about it I liked it, and will continue playing it because it genuinely feels like NV 1.5 in space, which is exactly what I expected, and got. Poo in loo lesbian romance quest can be skipped for absolutely no downsides, and despite the game being much more black and white than the usual black isle/obsidian games, I liked that the game was less about muh capitalism vs muh diversity, like /v/ would have me believe, and more to do with literally everyone on the board, corporates included, being retarded and out of touch. it's less about them being capitalists and more about them being ivory tower elitists who starved out or killed/imprisoned anyone who was capable of running their society, and it is now falling apart because of it(maybe a bit more on the nose now than it was in 2019) Also, pickle rick is also not nearly as obnoxious as the game trailer would have you think. I still think it was wise to put him behind a wall of glass for most of the game, before he said something that would actually make him hate him. I hate the fact there is no reason to side with the board more, you should be able to assassinate or convince the divesity hire nigger in charge and take over for yourself and turn the colony around. The game even makes a point of letting you buy out senator rockwell in the final dungeon, so why the fuck can't I also do so with the rest of the board, and then keep all the colonists alive and find another way to deal with the crisis? Lastly, the game has a moon man mask(which will definitely be replaced with mac tonight, if it ever gets mod tools), and the game actually does allow me to roleplay as moon man and kill every single danger hair and non-white I see, so that's a bonus for me. Even if the rest of the game was shit, this would be the redeeming factor for me, very good decision for obsidian to not have a single invincible character in game If you disagree with me, that's fine too. hate it all you want, and if you do bother making a post about it, at least also bother writing why. bandwagoning and whining how you hate something you haven't even played is just as bad as mindlessly downboating on reddit, or the kind of posting you would find on cuck/v/ >>118514 >lobotomized the priest halfway thru I actually liked how he turned out to be a manipulative, thuggish pos, and that his whole "wise priest" play was just an act. will agree his quest was lobotomized, as rather than letting him make a choice on what he should do with the book, you get a lulz so random drugs sequence, and he becomes a nihilist(so deep). thankfully, something like this doesn't happen often, and I think I played thru every quest/resolution

And, it didn't help that Sakurai wanted to torpedo any and all quality the series ever had due to his autism.
>>121144 So it really isn't a joke, wow. They should drop the name Smash and just use a generic title for multiplat icons. No regrets jumping off the Nintendo ship back when I did anymore.
>>121224 Why would they when they're still making money?
>>121224 Why? Every Nintentoddler knows the brand Smash, they'll keep buying this shit just like Mortal Cuckbat fans buy guest DLCshit because it's so 80s. Hipsters have become the norm
A big problem I have with NV is how many of the guns really aren't worth a shit. You have to go out of your way to use the less-OP ones. I love the 9mm SMG but it doesn't hold up to a lot of the others outside of raw DPS.

Reddit spacing isn't spacing your post out, it's replying to a post with a space between the >>post and your reply. This is because on Reddit quoting used to include your response in the quoted post if you didn't space them out. Funnily enough that's not even still a thing on Reddit itself anymore.

>>124892 >>124896 Here, example. Paragraphs can be any length, whatever is required to organize ideas. It's quite common for them to just be a single sentence. I just googled "book page" by the way., this looks like it came from Alice in Wonderland

>>124892 Even a sentence or a word can be a paragraph.
>>124874 I used it to accentuate my claim, but sure
>>124892 >Paragraphs are the building blocks of papers. Many students define paragraphs in terms of length: a paragraph is a group of at least five sentences, a paragraph is half a page long, etc. In reality, though, the unity and coherence of ideas among sentences is what constitutes a paragraph. A paragraph is defined as “a group of sentences or a single sentence that forms a unit” (Lunsford and Connors 116). Length and appearance do not determine whether a section in a paper is a paragraph. For instance, in some styles of writing, particularly journalistic styles, a paragraph can be just one sentence long. Ultimately, a paragraph is a sentence or group of sentences that support one main idea. This is a pretty solid definition. https://writingcenter.unc.edu/tips-and-tools/paragraphs/ With that in mind, I'd argue reddit spacing is when the same idea is spread amongst several single lines. The format isn't so important, but the context is. And even then, the extra spacing may be used to put emphasis on something. The problem is when the person is habitually adding those line breaks for no other reason than visiting Reddit too often.

I really need to play through NV again.
>>129547 reminder that on the 19th, this monday, is the tenth anniversary of the game do please play the game, even if it's a quick speedrun. I know I will Still can remember my first run of the game. Got the limited edition box with chips, the comic, the playing cards ect, it feels like I opened it for the first time yesterday
and speaking of new vegas, there is a channel that covers a lot of new vegas cut content, that includes exclusive interviews with the devs themselves. I will link it here, since not many sources have even half the stuff this guy has(most of it is verifiable via geck, the in game editor), good time to be retrospective on what might have been, and how lucky we were to get what we did in the game https://yewtu.be/channel/UCR6TcjCA3M7L7JaClJ7ZpeQ

Do you think the Wasteland guys will make a Fallout game? They're both owned by Microshaft now and both Obsidian and inXile have OG Fallout devs.
Should I play any of the Wasteland games? I really like Fallout 1 & 2 and would like to play something like it.
(506.33 KB 1280x1811 1_01NT.jpg)
>>130700 I said that in another thread If they were smart they would drop the Wasteland IP and just make it a Fallout spinoff, oldfags/posers who know Wasteland would be enough informed to understand what it is and it would attract a decent amount of Bethshit fans due to the brand.

>>131451 Wasteland 1 if you're interested in seeing the roots of the two series. Wasteland 2 is kind of a mess, but alright. It's biggest problem is that most of the story feels like a puree retread of Fallout storylines and ideas, with Matthias being a mixup of The Master and Shaun/Father from FO4. Some of that is unavoidable given the history of the series, and some of it was deliberate decisions in an attempt to not stray too far from what they thought people expected out of a Wasteland sequel (that also scratched the itch for classic Fallout). It's a very "safe" storyline. Too much so. Wasteland 3 takes some very light inspiration from Van Buren as I hear, but is much more it's own beast. The problem was that it's rushed and developed for current year audiences. It's not nearly as bad as that sounds, but it's still pretty goddamned bad, and the bigger problem being that much of it makes no goddamned logical sense and characters are not written consistently. See: >>116520 >>118071 In terms of atmosphere, it hits the nail more or less on the head and if you're looking for a classic Fallout experience - Wasteland is about as close as you're going to come. Gameplay wise it's basically a slimlined Fallout classic mixed with nu-XCom... but it's not as robust or well polished as either of them. Wasteland 3 introduces vehicle combat in certain battles - but it's not balanced very well. Hell the whole game isn't balanced very well in general. I breezed through the vast majority of it, but hit a difficulty spike about half-way through dealing with the tribes gathered in Yuma County. But that's pretty close to end-game and by that point I had enough medical supplies and money to basically just tank everything, and I talked my way out of the final boss fight. At this point, the whole series is up on GamePass and you can check it out for $1, but if you don't want to go that route, then Wasteland 2 is probably the best bet for a middle-ground. If you haven't already had a free copy thrown at you from any number of promotional deals, then the GoG version should be floating around somewhere. Also, maybe I just suck with them, but I found shotguns to be completely useless. They're basically only good for clearing cover and inflicting bleeding status with certain perks. But battles seem to flow fast enough that bleeding is only a minimal help, and getting close enough for the shotgun to be effective is going to require a specialized build to tank damage. You'd be better putting those points into a heavy gunner/demolition expert and stocking up on grenades if you're going to get that close. It's been a while since I played WL2, but in WL3 they weren't very useful for crowd control and the AI was such that it almost always prioritized attacking deploy-able turrets/bots - so your best bet in those situations was to just throw out a turret near the mob and then run like hell, while another character popped a smoke grenade to your position.
>>131480 Shotguns are shit until you get the end game shotguns. The pancor jackhammer does a shit ton of damage as well doing area of effect.

Why would anyone holdout hope that these shitheads could ever make a good game again? >>116290 Underrail is the best Fallout game, and Galaxy Quest is the best Star Trek film. The only two examples I can think of where third party homages totally surpass in quality and perfect the spirit of the original.
>>131451 Wasteland 1 is fun but hard as balls. People act like Wasteland 2 is bad for some reason, I think they set their expectations way too high. Never played WL3

Survivalist's Rifle or A Light Shining in Darkness Dead Money For Auld Lang Syne or Arizona Killer and it's opposite quests Probably Christine, since Cass is just a whore, Veronica is voiced by Felicia Day, and Lily (thinks she) is your mutant grandma Thoughts? Between a map that isn't 60% water, or inaccessible, having honest to god skill/SPECIAL checks, and the second storyline actually having choices to make, and tangible consequences to those choices, and finally, having a bunch of opposed factions with only one of them ending up unreasonable, impossible retards, I honestly think Toddout 76 is the best RPG bethesda has made since Morrowind. That is when it actually wants to work and doesn't bug the fuck out, of course. Grievances? It's been a bit over 10 years since Obsidian has made an actually good videogame, and I want them specifically to not make a New Vegas 2 or remake. >>133691 I think people are so hard on Wasteland 2 because the first half of the game is really good and shows some real promise, before promptly tumbling down a flight of stairs and never getting back up as soon as the second half starts.
