Re: What Are You Playing Right Now?

I have FO:1 to FO:NV, but all on the PC side (Steam.) FO:3 is my favorite. FO:NV is my least fav - that thing feels like a western cowboy game rather than a fallout vault-y game and the faction system+choices was boring. I totally regret buying that, but you couldn't delete games from your Steam library nor can you gift them away past a point.

I didn't get FO:4 though

I'm trying to get into the funk of modding for Skyrim SE (PC), been a while since I used a Bethesda creation tool and I've forgotten a lot.

Re: What Are You Playing Right Now?

Shelkes mods, now thats something I want to see. Smiley Happy

Maybe a full FF rework?

I kind of agree about NV, I think it got heavily influenced by RDR and whilst I get they were going for a different vibe, its hard to marry post apocalyptic and vegas, so even that bit comes unstuck. Then the western influence just makes it feel...well wrong. The only bit I liked was the central "hub" aspect (the robot? dude you did the missions for) which gave it a bit more structure without killing the sandbox feel. A few of the characters where interesting (caravan lady?) ..been a while since I played it, all I remember properly is I never finished it and with FO3 this is like my 5th play-through. The DLC sucked big time from memory.

On the whole though, id agree its the least enjoyable of the modern Bethesda offerings. Skyrim is textbook "how to use a game engine for a totally different game and succeed", but its mostly down to the decent writing and structure IMHO. 

And Dragons. Obviously. And the vampire dudes, I loved that bit.

Re: What Are You Playing Right Now?

Also, not forgetting how they threw a version of Caesars army into the bizarre mix that is FO:NV (such an odd faction to choose for a odd game.) Or the prison faction or even the house robot faction, then the random town faction. It's such a inconsistent hodge-podge of things thrown together that it never came off as either 'Fallout'-ish or something that gelled together (it didn't.) Literally, cow boy theme mixed with end of the world and then bring in Caesars legion and prison faction and a robot faction as primary antagonists Cat Indifferent

Re: What Are You Playing Right Now?

Oh yeah, Im getting flashbacks now.

Its kind of like they had a wheel of fortune for the writing team. It landed on Romans, lets put that in. Now House Robots and card games...etc etc.

LOL when Ive done FO3 ima gonna  revisit NV. Put off the base building for a bit. Torture myself .Wasn't there an airfield bit? Golf club weapons? I just remember it as all the stuff they had lying around fired into a "game".   I think I persevered with it because FO3 was so good I was like "it must get better" Rescuing ladies of the night from the casino? Did I dream that bit?  Smiley Frustrated

Re: What Are You Playing Right Now?

@Kippies the only rescue a lady from a casino quest I remember from FO:NV ended up being that she had been kidnapped on her wedding to be secretly fed to a cannibal cult who was trying to reform their ways... and she's long dead before you find out about it.

Re: What Are You Playing Right Now?

Ahh yes I though it was my ineptitude got her killed. Must be one of those "branching story line/dialogue options" that always wind up leading to the same result. Ive been messing with my answers in the NPC stories/situations in FO3.

NPC dialogue DOES seem to make a difference, but story driving dialogue, options are irrelevant. Dunno what I expected, but there it is.

Skyrim feels much more organic that way.

It's definitely way more immersive and you get quests all over the place, even from random books. Interesting quests too with interesting NPCs lore/story behind them. Plus lots of weapons, lots of variety and many ways to play it (no fixed route.)

I've got one play through going on as a vampire and another as your average non-supernatural type. Vampire one is fun, as I try to only quest at night etc.
