: : : : : Fallout: A Post Nuclear Adventure

[edit] Background

Set in the dark aftermath of a world-wide nuclear war, Fallout pits you against a new, twisted world in a fight for survival and the safety of your home; possibly the last remnant of "pure" human beings. Fallout opens with a conversation with the Vault Overseer, the man who supervises and cares for everyone inside the Vault, a hi-tech nuclear bunker shielding the inhabitants from the harsh outside world. The Vault Overseer describes to the Vault-Dweller, you, the Vault's new, grave situation. He informs the Vault-Dweller of a pure water shortage, after the water purification chip was fried. He sends you outside the safe confines of Vault 13 to retrieve a new, working water chip, before it's too late!

So thanks to Kevin I've been playing the crap out of Fallout. I'm enjoying it immensely now and have developed a pretty severe addiction, but the road was not easy...

(Before I get into it -- if you haven't seen the video he posted of that Fallout 3 machinima, please check it out, it will make your day!)

I started getting a freezing error in a particular part of the game on Friday, in an effort to fix it I installed a 3rd party patch..this brought its own bugs, which, long story short, it seemed I could only fix by formatting my computer. I did so, encountered about every problem you can imagine, all to find my problem hadn't gone away (all this took about 24 hours). Surprisingly, I have not smashed my computer into tiny bits!

Anyway, without getting into details, I seem to have fixed everything -- just hoping I don't run into the original freezing error again. I've had to start my game over but that's fine because my first time I had no idea what I was doing (my first 20 minutes or so of playing the game in particular consisted of me wondering "What the hell is this crap!" and clicking away in frustration -- yeah, that's me, your neighbourhood game reporter). By the time I did figure it all out, I was many hours into the game and the cement was set...so, having started a new game, I now have a much sweeter character who is not dying every five seconds, as you can see from the Super Mutant slaughter above and stats below:

Yeah, I like playing as ladies, alright? :)
She's basically a martial artist/healer with brass knuckles. :D
Come to think of it, she's a lot like Sheela from Shining Force II.
Still early into the game, but making steady progress.

So to anyone whose interest has been piqued by Fallout 3, I highly recommend the first game, and presumably the second based on what I've heard (the general consensus seems to be its even better). Just note that it probably won't draw you in instantly -- as Kevin told me, give it a few hours. It's mainly getting the hang of everything, once you've got that down, you're pretty much hooked. This is one game you need to read the manual for before you play.
But yeah, amazing atmosphere, premise/story, music, combat system, etc. Very unique! I think of it as "Diablo for people who don't like Diablo". :)
And nothing against Diablo, I just dont dig it. Though the changes brought to III interest me greatly...

Oh, and just so you know I'm a complete courtesan for Good Old Games (GOG.com) -- this is where I got the game for a cool 6 bucks. I have no financial affiliation with them though so its okay. :)
Once payday hits I'm going for Giants: Citizen Kabuto (freaking hilarious and also pretty!), MDK, MDK 2 (same to both), and I'm considering Colin McRae Rally 2005 (need a good arcadey racer), Earthworm Jim 1 + 2 (how could I not?), Unreal Gold, and Sacrifice. I tried the demo for that last one and I'm not sure what to think...they're all raving about it over there though so I'm curious. I figure it's probably like Fallout in that it doesn't hook you immediately and requires some dedication in learning its intricacies and idiosyncracies. But maybe it's just not my thing! I'm generally not into strategy/RTS type games..but this one seems special. We shall see.

On the note of the blogs and what people can post -- it was great to see many users outspoken on the issue. If you haven't noticed, there are now not one, but two new categories available for you to exercise all your thoughts with. Hurrah. Personally I feel this is a great choice -- while yes, in a way site-related only posts would be cool, our sister site GameGrep already affords this opportunity, no? Speaking of which, I've seen some great blogs here on Neo already and have been making use of that handy 'Grep It' button as such..:)
Great to see people so involved already. Can't wait to see how this evolves. Props to tek and everyone else involved for all the work done.

Hope you all had a pleasant weekend.
