The Price of Fallout
http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/fallout

Naught.
Zero.
Nil.

If you've not yet played the original Fallout, you now have the perfect opportunity to resolve this flaw in your character.


$5.99, because you missed your opportunity to get it for free, dummy.

Speaking of characters dummies, I'm going to roll up a new one and return to the hunt for that damned water chip.

[edit] ...and I'm going hardcore this time.  No small guns.  No smooth talking.  I will ride a wave of knives, explosives, and miniguns to success or defeat in this playthrough.  I've already emptied the starting pistol of ammo and traded the shells away in Shady Sands for caps, stimpacks, and just enough rope to hang myself with. [/edit]

[edit 2] Updated to reflect the deal ending. [/edit 2]

Re: The Price of Fallout
I'm not sure if/when I'll ever play it, but I threw it on the account anyway, because c'mon, it's Fallout.

During that Two for One deal they had a long time ago, I picked up Fallout 2 alongside Freespace 2 instead of this. And now... I have this

I just wish they could retrofit some newer features into the game. I mean, having to pick-pocket/barter with your party members to change their gear? C'mon!! :lol:

Ha! I still have the original CD from 1998 flying around. The first two are so much better than the 3D-abominations. NV was a good game but still way behind the first two.

Nice find Flame

Also, I don't see what's so wrong with Fallout 3/NV T-LoW
They just updated the game to suit current demands

I honestly think I'd be more interested in playing the newer games, because pure hardcore turn-based combat systems are something that is at least some degree of turn-off for me.  But we'll see how things go if I ever decide to sit down and play this.

is that how this game is?  i'm not completely opposed to that, but it's not my usual cup of tea.  i've never really looked into it, but i thought fallout was a FPS with item collection and whatnot RPG elements.  still, if i am to ever play the new ones, my OCD demands that i play the series in its entirety, in order.

Yep.  The Fallout games were originally isometric turn-based RPG's before Bethesda got to them.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Only Fallout 3 and New Vegas are like that. Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics are isometric and turn based games. Unlike Baldur's Gate which was practically turn-based mechanism with real-time gameplay and pause feature, Fallout was purely turn-based. Tactics is not a sequel but set in same world as the others.

I've had Fallout on the laptop for months, but no time to really play it.  Working on it though.

I'd list Fallout 3 and New Vegas in my top 10 favorite games of all time, with Wanderer's Edition installed for the former and Project Nevada installed for the latter.

I borrowed Fallout Trilogy from a friend (Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics: BoS) and am planning on playing through Fallout 2 during the 32 hours of bus travel I'll be having in a couple weeks.
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

just started playing.  eh.  alright i guess.  the main thing keeping me going now is overwhelming boredom and the assumption the game will start getting better.


i was however reminded that games of this era didn't include any sort of autosave.   :banghead:
