You mean you find that you can't Let Go, and want to Begin Again?

*ducks and runs away*

(Also, sorry for misconstruing what you were saying before about Christine.)


It was easy to do, I haven't even considered what life would look like afterwards..

Except, that is, that someone is going to pay for it...

Meanwhile, I'm playing Honest Hearts again...

One of these days I'll tell them all to run again for the pacifist ending.

But not this time.

After recently revisiting the Sierra Madre, Big MT, the Divide,and the Mojave Wasteland, Zion really IS the only piece of real estate worth fighting over. Clean water, plenty of game, friendly locals, actual friggin' rainfall...


I just want out (of course I'm not telling Elijah that).


I'm out!!!

woohooo

how much gold did you take?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

I made it out with 5 gold bars.


Dog/God really rubs it in in the epilogue, but it only reinforces my conspiracy theory regarding him.

Only took 5 tries total to escape, once I got caught up on something and ran out of time, once I used a super Stimpak, and thrice I fell from poorly timed jumps (have I mentioned how much I hate jumping games!!!!).

A few highlights of my end run

1. Dumped my Reinforced Sierra Madre armor in favor of gold, sweet,sweet gold. I then forgot to equip stealth armor, which prevented me from sneaking out. I then proceeded thru the entire battle, which consisted of me shooting Elijah 4 times in the back of the head before he could turn around. See b%+$*! It's not so fun to have your head explode is it! Where's your previous save now m~~~+*~&@&&@!!. Anyway, I made the whole run in my underwear.

2. Sucked my whole life at games requiring timed jumps, would've made it my first run, if only I didn't have to jump so much.

3. Liquor doesn't stack, buffout rules, bring lots of buffout.

4. Thank god I have a great innate sense of direction, otherwise I would've been f$@@ed, as it is I could hear the head explosion was imminent as I missed then hit the elevator button, Tiny T-Rex even exclaimed "that was epic!" afterwards.

5. The first thing I did when I got back was shoot the radio in the bunker, I'm not going back.

Epic indeed

Rampage!!!

But I'm still nuking someone.

how many time did it take you to get past the last group of speakers and holograms just before you get to the vault itself?


That actually wasn't too hard, a bit white knuckle getting to that last monitor to shut the speakers off, barely made that dash as well.

Honestly, that part is a blur to me now, I'm not sure I could repeat it.


It's like that mission in Red Dead Redemption where you gotta sneak onto a train using only stealth and knives. Nailed it fully my first try.

Haven't completed it successfully since.

took me 3 tries to figure out what the hell I was doing


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I was fully consumed by the rage by then.


The reinforced security armor sucks anyway, because even though the defense is good, it degrades way too fast. Not worth hanging onto at all, even if you are a light armor wearing character like I use.


yeah i just used the assassin's armor once i got it


I had my suit of power armor waiting for me. Kept one of Vera's dresses tho, gave it to Veronica.

I'm keeping the lingerie.


I have Esther now, helped Veronica tell what's his face to shove it.

I'm not sure she'll like how Elijah turned out.

We'll see how all that turns out after I get the kids to bed tonight.


Sadly, Esther needs room and fresh air to breathe, and really do her job well.

Two things Vault 34 is very much lacking.

It's a good thing there's plenty of radioactive ghouls for Veronica and Rex to rip and punch apart.


Done with Vault 34, I think I missed something, a named gun, Wikipedia: 5, a Fallout high, still doesn't compare to the frustration caused by the million and seven ways we can complicate a puzzle because NERDS!! of Skyrim tho.


By the way, once I checked Wikipedia for Fallout 3, that was for that stupid simulation town with the psycho girl at the playground, stupid b##&@!

Otherwise, it was just me and Sharoth and the helpful bunch at FaWtL back then... this last summer.

So long ago, so innocent then.

So I just started playing Fallout 3 last week ago, because this thread got the hankering for it going (and I've played New Vegas through twice in the last year or so, but never played Fallout 3 past a couple of levels).

And that stupid simulation town is what I looked up in the wiki yesterday because I couldn't figure out how to get out without taking massive karma hits. Seriously? Playing some random sequence of tunes on random objects in that house? Bleh.


Oh! If you have the one with the DLCs do the bayou one (the riverboat signal) that is one f&&%ed up area, the first time I played, I swear it said Caution damn near the entire time I was there, the swamp has eyes, and they're hungry...


Also, take some nukes onto Mothership Zeta, and lots and lots of ammo and Stimpaks, and beware the prismatic aliens (their suits shift spectrum, you'll see, I generally nuke them too, if possible. Save one nuke at least for the bridge, target the captain and fire, it's my favorite Indiana Jones vs sword dude moment in Fallout 3. Also you'll want to practice your favorite enterprise captain's voice for what comes after that.

Finally, Moira is a treasure and should be treated with respect.

Even if she does get you irradiated, and crippled, and expects you to go Mole Rat Clubbing (for science!)... actually, she should be treated like a treasure because of all that.

I heart Moira. I always love finding copies of the Wasteland Survival Guide in NV and Fallout 4, knowing she's still torturing test subjects for the good of mankind. Show the Institute how to do it right, Moira!

I never played the Fallout 3 DLC (computer died around the time they came out). Need to purchase the GOTY edition on Steam (my disc edition is the faulty GFWL version) but never got around to it. I know I can get it for cheap when it's on sale, I just have had other financial priorities of late.


I started a second character, as I usually juggle two to three styles at a time, with 1 int to try the changes.

I'm vastly disappointed with how articulate my supposedly drooling moron is. When you make a 1 int simpleton in Fallout 1 or 2 it's like a totally different videogame. This is just a handful of little jokes. Obsidian and Bethesda got lazy, it seems, in both Fallout 3 and New Vegas.

I bet part 4 doesn't even have that feature at all...

That is super sad, the DLCs in 3 were my favorite parts, especially The Pitt and Riverboat.

Mothership Zeta has some fun Star Trek moments, but is too long.

I also love the Alaska one for the free power armor training and s!*+loads of weapons.

Dark Archive

Oh God, Operation: Anchorage. I built a speech character. Hated it.

That said, I loved Dead Money, so I guess I'm the minority here.


I like it because it's short and you get the most ordinance. Also two out the three times I played it, I lucked out and got the Chinese General to commit Seppuku, which was awesome, because at no point in Fallout 3 did I ever put any points in speech. :-)

It's also culturally inaccurate, as that's a Japanese thing, not Chinese.

Yeah, that didn't make sense to me either, but hey if dude wants to drive his electrified sword into his chest, I'm not going to point out he's being culturally inaccurate.

I'll take that sword tho, if he's done with it, that is.


Just because they're neighbors and culturally similar doesn't mean it's the same.

I'd be annoyed if people thought I, as an American, said "eh" a lot, put mayonnaise on my French Fries, and left my door unlocked while being continually nice to people like some kind of Canadian.

That mayo on fries thing, especially. That's just disgusting.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

You've never been to the Midwest have you, except the mayonnaise part you just described it perfectly, also slap on a veneer of polite questioning add a hidden layer of bigotry, and voila!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yeah, that's the south, except the racism isn't hidden.

Look, the point is Americans aren't Canadians any more than Japanese are Chinese.

(This may have been as poor of an example as if I had compared Austrians to Germans or Belgians to the French.)

But what about Laos! Won't somebody think of the Laotian!!! (that spelling doesn't look right)

Go to HELIOS One with your Int 1 character. Also go visit Arcade as soon as you can.

There ARE low Int dialogues and many of your choices also subtly change (pay attention and you'll notice your Courier is more like to refer to an advanced technological devices as "Thingamajigs" and the like). It's just not all drooling monosyllabic talk (which was funny in Fallout 1 but also nearly unplayable).

It is also unfortunately not all consistent (you can tell some writers bore Int in mind while others didn't) but the way I fluffed it for my character was that she wasn't nonfunctional IQ per se, but rather the brain damage she suffered from being shot in the head caused intermittent issues with cognition and word retrieval.

And no, the voicing of the protagonist in 4 caused dialogue to be more limited and they eliminated low Int responses as part of that. (As it was, it took each voice actor two years to record the Sole Survivor's dialogue.) It's unfortunate, and I miss stat and skill based dialogue, but OTOH I also like having a more expressive protagonist, so for me it's a tradeoff. Fallout 4 took some risks in trying new things and I don't fault them for it. Some stuff worked, others didn't. Personally I find it one of the most addictive games I've played in years.


Wow! The Brotherhood is going down!

Murdering doctors? Too far!

Also the NCR gave me three days to help them out otherwise they're throwing down as well.

But.. I.. I just got back!


S&&$! When I was jacking up my implants forgot the armor, it's a good thing I'm still loaded with caps from flipping the vault 34 armory.


A word of caution when finally unlocking the door in the armory of vault 34, I don't recommend opening it then firing your grenade machine gun blind inside the room, sure the 5-10 (hazy blur!) grenades will pulverize everyone inside, but it makes finding all the guns and ammo a tedious (and radiation filled) affair.

Bring lots of Radaway and Rad-X, lots!

In fairness to myself, that tactic worked brilliantly in the cafeteria and entry way.

Went in with 97 25mm grenades, by the time I made it to the armory, I was down to 57.

Last week I managed to get Fallout 3 Goty to work, so I've been playing that lots. I've enjoyed it, but while it *does* work, the DLCs aren't available to me and the max level is 20, which is odd. Amongst other things, to get it to work I needed to download the unofficial patch, and that said that I had all the DLCs.
I don't know why the DLCs aren't available. Anyone know what I can do?

(Edit: Extra info. I bought the game from Amazon, which game me a Steam code to download it. Don't know if that makes a difference.)

When you doubleclick it and it gives the little splash screen with the Play button at top, there's a link called "Data Files". Click that and you should see all the DLCs listed but not checked. I got to like level 10 before I realized they weren't loaded.

I assumed that it was supposed to be completely inaccurate and borderline racist exactly because it was effectively a propaganda simulation in game, and so was completely historically inaccurate.

On my Xbox 360 I forgot to put the second disc until 15th level myself, didn't start hitting the DLC until around twentieth.

That's a great point, I'd recently thought of that myself. :-)


Both of my discs I borrowed from my friends are play discs for FO3 due to a mix up at game stop.

I refuse to play until I borrow the DLC disc from my brother in law, for fear that I can't get a perk or item as early as possible.

You realize, with Fallout 4 out, you can get it for 20 bucks or less, i got mine new for 15 at work (not including my pittance of a discount).

The Fallout 3 GotY edition is only $20 on Steam, and it's dropped to $5 the last few sales (so you'd like have to wait until July at this point, but sometimes it goes on sale other times also)


Or I can ask my brother in law, who lives about ten miles away off the same street as me, to bring it next time he comes over and let me install the DLC for free. There's that option.

But then you have to deal with in-laws, nope, wouldn't be worth it to me.

Of course, we aren't popular with my wife's family, on account of her working for "the enemy" (AKA the state).


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

We aren't popular with my family, on account of us not existing on Facebook.
