Hey guys, do we have a Fallout thread?

Let's make a Fallout thread! because New Vegas coming out soon and that it's sort of topical.

Pic related, it's a fucking laser rifle.

>Snow, Evergreens
>Suddenly realising I saw this in the previous screenshots also

Holy crap, can it be that parts of New Vegas...ARENT BROWN?

How does /cog/ feel about forum games? I'm not sure if that is the exact name for them, but they're kind of like DnD combined with an mmorpg. You can roll a character, and from there, you can explore the world as you wish, or join those who want to take it over. My favorite is simRTK. Here is a link if you don't know what it is.

I want to get into D&D, what's the best way to find bros to play with?

expand 5 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
You could, you know. They're pretty active.
I hijacked into one of their World of Darkness games about a year ago, but that was because I'm a WoDfaggot and really really wanted to play a Promethean. Usually they stick with D&D or do something more exotic like Call of Cthulhu. Or Mutants and Masterminds. You could easily get in touch with'em over Skype. Even if they're loaded up with players for games sometimes, they're absurdly active.

Funny voice? Hah. None of the 5-Bucks crew are Sean Connery, man. I've been described as sounding like a drunken cowboy. :\


About Skype, I didn't find anything on the Steam group telling me where I could find them on Skype.


The smartest thing to do would be to add Luke or Beard or somebody, if I talk to him I'll clear giving you his username, but if you want, you can add me, and I'll get you in touch with somebody when I can.

I'm since_1845 on skype.

That was awesome! Over the top oriental God of War, I can get behind that.
I hope the gameplay can hold all that water

If they remember what they did right in combo fighting in their other games it should be fine. Hopefully someone who knows what's fun and what isn't will write for them and this will all even out.

Totally down.

I don't even know what Dwarf Fortress is, but this is hilarious.

Not as far as I know.

Well, I finally found a way, though it only works for getting things warm and not cooking (which Toady is only planning right now): stand next to a fire while holding a container and check the temperature to make sure it is warm or hot, then just wait a while until the ice melts.

So, the new version is out, and the populations of towns are now spread ridiculously far out.

  Might as well bump this with the latest trailer. Still in Japanese voice mode atm.

On the plus side, that means that even if I get a mediocre Deus Ex game, I'll get a pretty damn good Ghost In the Shell themed game.

...Oh hey, that's a good way to put it.

Also: Ubisoft you ratfuckers where's the sequel to this goddamn game

Ubisoft make a proper sequel to something? Not if it doesn't involve copious amounts of American military machismo.

... Dammit where's my grandiose Rayman adventure for this gen? Raving Rabbids started up as one, complete with giant animal riding and evil bunny robots and then they turned it into shitty minigames.

Yeah yeah I know about this side scroller whatever over here but it's clearly not what I want or I wouldn't be complaining here would I?

ffffffffffffffffffffffKinda do want.

Everything about this game is wonderful. It's like visual heroin.


Nintendo has once again hit its stride at what it does best.

Hey guys. I'm having some trouble with my No$GBA Emulator. Every time I fire it up and get past the Platinum introduction scene I get this screen here, I was wondering if anyone here knew how to fix this?
If not, what other emulator could I use? I was gonna do a Nuzlocke run (I already own Platinum), hence the emulator thingy. I don't really use emulators, so I am kinda lost here.

What's your opinion on save scumming?

Personally I believe it's the truly strategic and rational way to play computer games.

expand 4 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
>>93448 >>93426

Oh. Since its an option, and not usually a forced element? I guess its state dependent.

I think its more a result of the hightened complexity of games, and the fact that they're not Quarter Farms in most cases. Thats why you couldn't 'save' in arcade Pac Man. But if you're just trying to complete something, or figure something out? Saves prevent fustration.

I can't think of how it's really used in a bad way. But I can't really think of a game that has it built in and doing so would be considered cheating.


I can think of only one example: The last piece of evidence used against Godot. Because the result looks like a game over and the dialogue is exactly the same for a good long time, meaning you've probably missed it twice because after awhile you just went "Fuck it, I don't need to reach the game over screen to see how this ends."

This assumes you played the game save scumming, of course.

So, my fellow Bioshockers...anyone else betting on escaping a crashing city as a finale?

I been letdown far to much to be jumping off the wall...BUT FUCK, it does look like they finally realized how to make DLC.

How do you know it won't be returning? Sure, there's been no sight of the sisters, but it would not surprise me if the Handyman was a guardian of the children of Columbia or something.

I'm super fucking stoked.

So I got my recent issue of Game Infomer, and I have to say that my position on Bioshock: Infinate has changed dramatically from piqued interest to FUCK YEAR, KILLAN BITCHES WITH BURDS.

Also, thoughts on Minvera's Den, anybody?

I'd like a nice debate upon the subject.

  Apparently it was the 13th, so lets do a little catching up here and celebrate the pair of Italians that probably got a lot of us into gaming in the first place.

>Penny Arcade's Jerry Holkins wrote today. "If I am purchasing games in order to reward their creators, and to ensure that more of these ingenious contraptions are produced, I honestly can't figure out how buying a used game was any better than piracy. From the the perspective of a developer, they are almost certainly synonymous."

/cog/'s thoughts on this?

Things that don't get sold get returned to sender for a refund, bro.


Or credit so they can buy new stuff from the same publisher.

Most of the time I only see really horrible/bad sellers sit on some stores shelves for years and stubbornly clinging to the same price they paid for it, like Alpha Protocol at $60 in certain retail stories.

I guess it would go here...

Does anyone else here watch it? Anyone else wanna talk about it?

Because I do. I watched the entire thing not too long ago and have been keeping up weekly ever since.

I just marathoned the whole thing over the last week to see what the big deal was. I feel kind of stupid for having missed it all these years.

I am going to miss Wash and Doc's banter when the former's gone or killed. That was one of the best things this season.

So Revelations has ended on a fairly bittersweet note. I'm a little pissed that they kind of forgave Washington so easily, but the gang has never been dedicated enough to hold grudges. I wonder, though, if they're going to completely switch to Halo: Reach in the new season or if they're gonna alternate to indicate the memory world and the real world.


Their PSA's seem to suggest that they will be making the transition. Check 'em out if you haven't yet.
