I finally bought Fallout 1/2 for real after having played them only through extra-legal means in my youth, so can can we have a thread on the series?

And specifically I would like to ask if there's any good mods for the first two games (and tactics) like there are for the first person ones?
Particularly I'm looking for stuff that expands on the followers, maybe smooths some of the rougher parts the older games had with them in terms of equipping and how they acted in combat, etc~

Hey, Rodyle, Fallout 3 was great fun, you're just being a nitpicky ninny~
>> No. 179910
It's a decent game by itself but it really shouldn't have been called Fallout considering that it's mostly terrible at everything that was good about the old games. The good parts are things that outright didn't exist in the old titles.

But we got New Vegas out of it so whatever. Shame Bethesda has said that FO4 is going to be made by them again.

What about a fallout game where you set up a hideout and form a mercanary crew? You can get a bunch of companions and mercs who will join up as you build rep, outfit them with better gear and training, and basically use them to back you up as you can undertake mssions or send them off on such things while you're doing something else.
Hell it could be a side thing in a normal game I guess, I'm sure I've seen mods along these lines, but still setting up your hideout and your own gang would still be pretty cool.
>> No. 179913
Sounds pretty close to Original Wasteland maybe mixed with a bit of the BoS game while taking from the new system they are implementing in Dragon Age like they at in AC2 games with missions being undertaken by others.

I could see it working especially if it uses the central US as a backdrop which if it follows lore has more civilized areas and also a bit more conflict.

Well, New Vegas was pretty damn successful, wasn't it? I'd say there's a good chance of them getting to make the New Vegas to Fallout 4.
>> No. 179995
ehhh Bethesda screwed them over on a bonus based on a metacritic score because it was one point off. Bethesda would have to give them some serious control for them to come back for development.
>> No. 179998

It was pretty successful...for Bethesda. Obsidian got screwed.

A large part of Obsidian's payment for the game was locked into a metacritic bonus - to be paid only if the game reaches a certain metacritic score. Let's stop and think for a moment about what a singularly terrible idea this is. Done? Okay, moving on. Their contract also stipulated that all QA work was to be done by Bethesda - this is the work of hunting down and fixing bugs. Obsidian makes the game, Bethesda patches it up. This is a pretty standard developer/publisher relationship, especially when the game is being made with the publisher's engine. Problem is, Bethesda underfunded the QA, and pushed the game out the door as a buggy mess. Then, when the game's metacritic score suffered because it was a buggy mess, Obsidian didn't get their bonus through no fault of their own.

Did Bethesda do that on purpose to avoid paying out the metacritic bonus? Maybe, maybe not. But either way, if I were Obsidian it would take one hell of a sweetheart contract to make me come work for Bethesda again.
>> No. 179999
Yeah the main thing that Obsidian got out of New Vegas was goodwill from RPG fans, which they already had by virtue of being Obsidian. I suppose the Black Isle survivors might have gotten a bit of closure from salvaging some Van Buren stuff and working with the universe again, which I imagine might mean SOMETHING to creative types.

But in the end they had to lay off a bunch of staff and the project just got them more LOL OBSIDIAN BUGS shittalking even though Bethesda had a hand in it too.

That said, I am a complete Obsidian apologist but even I have to admit that whilst they definitely get screwed over constantly by their partners, they definitely have a problem with bugs all their own.

And yet Avellone said this in some interview:
>All of the Fallout stuff is totally up to Bethesda. While we would love to do another Fallout game again, that is totally up to them.
It seems to me that a good deal of this perceived bad blood between the two companies is the internet blowing things out of proportion again. Everybody likes an underdog story.

Nothing about that statement says anything other than "Fallout is owned by Bethesda."

It's not like Chris can just publicly say "FUCK TODD HOWARD" or anything.

Not to say argue either way myself, but by that logic there's nothing in the statement toward supporting a grudge, either.

...I have both games from steam, and haven't touched them yet.
Wanted to start with 3, but since it supposedly doesn't works with Win7 (plus getting the mods for improvements), well, that put me down for doing it.
Should I start with New Vegas first?

Start with Fallout 1 and 2, then go to NV.

If this ends up as Fallout 4 and it's West Coast again, that'd be a bit shit. We could stand with some Midwest.

So, let's say theoretically I like all the RPG stuff about Fallout 3 and New Vegas, but the gameplay (vats, dodgy shooting mechanics etc) bother me. How many mods are out there to help me with this sort of thing? Basically, make the combat less like an RPG, because it's always felt sort of tedious and boring to me and I'd rather just get combat over with so I can get to talking and picking locks and stuff?

I don't know, that seems like a tall order. How do you hope to change it?
>> No. 182932
That's a common problem. I encountered the same thing on Windows 7.

You can fix it by setting compatibility to XP Service Pack 3 and modifying some configuration files.
