    Fallout 1 and 2

    Hello people,

    Has anyone ever played Fallout one and two?

    Its not an online RPG but I think this is the right place to mention it.

    They are probably my favourite RPG's of all time, set in a post apocalyptic Mad Max type world the graphics would seem dated nowadays but if your a diehard RPG fan you are bound to appreciate Fallout. Everytime I play Fallout I end up with a entirely different character and a enormous sense of satisfaction.

    Retro gamers might remember Wasteland which is the intellectual parent of Fallout. sometimes Fallouts dialogue is childish sometimes dirty quite often silly, but that just adds to the degenerate future of my all time fav RPG.

    The best weapons combo has to be power armour, power fist and laser rifle. I used to love pulling off a critical move on the different bodyparts of your opponents and reading the discription of what kinda damage you managed to do. Needless to say I probably can't tell you what it says happens if you hit someone in the groin with a powerfist here on LO.

    I think the same people made Arcanum; Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura which I've yet to play but I've heard great things about. Anyone played it?

    Anyway I just wanted to show my appreciation for Fallout.

    Eeek I forgot to mention Baldurs gate that has to be my 2nd all time fav.......

    Great games. Fallout tactics isn't bad either. Apparently the same people who did morrowind have bought the rights to do fallout 3

    Hey Berny Mac, I love that mullet, what a lucky man Pat Sharpe is.

    I haven't played Fallout Tactics yet, but I heard that on the CDrom theres a Fallout based pen and paper RPG. Have you read it? any good? I tried downloading it off a Fallout site but it gave my computer a headache, I hate viruses and stuff.

    Morrowwind is a wicked game I hope Fallout 3 is good. Its a shame that the original producers didn't keep their intellectual property though, afterall thats what made the game what it is.

    I hope they don't end up ruining it like those Playstation Baldur's gates and the playstation Fallout. There ok 2 player co-op though If you like being bored with a friend.

    I am afraid I haven't played the paper and pen version of Fallout. I have a bad feeling fallout 3 won't ever be released, I don't know if there is the interest but if it ever was I would be the first to buy it!

    I have Arcanum. . . It is done by the same team Trokia but was produced by Sierra rather than. . . hmm forgot who produced fallout. . . Anyway It's a very similar game except that it's set in a different world. Rather than post apocolyptic it's steampunk. Magic VS Technology is a huge theme, and character creation & development, huge number of quests, most with several ways to solve them. It's so good that I keep playing through it on farly regular basis. . . beaten it like a dozen times now. As an added bonus its graphics are less outdated than fallout's.

    Arcanum is my favorite Computer RPG. . .it replaced Daggerfall, although Oblivion is currently making a bid to replace Arcanum. (personally I was disappoinded in Morrowind.)

    I'm not sure what to think about Bethesda doing fallout 3, hopefully they just produce it and let the Trokia team do it, though I've never heard of Bethesda doing that, they're a pretty small player in the big picture of Gaming.

    Back from internet limbo, and glad to be here.

    It seems pretty well confirmed that Fallout isn't going to die in development hell.

    I don't remember the company that developed them, but a lot of the people were at Black Isle Studious as they worked on fallout 3 before going under. I don't know about the rest of you, but I felt a disturbance as Black Isle passed away. I'm apprehensive that Bethseda will turn fallout into something it's not (which they've already said they're doing) and completly miss the humorous and mature (eg dirty and violent) parts that made it so unique.

    Fallout is still the best game I've ever played, rivaled in my mind only by the Half Life and Mechwarrior series.

    Good points I share similar fears. I wouldn't mind so much if it was Morrowind with guns as long as they keep the character of the game.

    I found Arcanum a bit dry, and the I thought the graphic style was inferior to Fallout's. The characters all looked so generic and featureless.

    Fallout remains my favourite RPG series of all time. I actually like the idea of Fallout from a first person perspective. It will make exploring armageddon that much more immersive.

    Ditto on the fears that Bethesda will make it a souless hack 'n slash in the same vein as Oblivion.

    Being a huge fallout fanboy I pounced the Fallout 3 trailer and gobbled 'em up like I do buffout (in-game only, these guns are all natural...aww yeah).
    It chimed with Fallout 1, a slow zoom out of something that for a moment just miiiight be something normal but then the destruction is revealed and the sweet little number standing in the foreground as well.

    But yes...will Fallout 3 be a mindless hack'n'slash? Will it be a combat game? (akin to Brotherhood of Steel, while I liked the story and the gameplay elements in it I hated the fact that everywhere I went I was just fighting something...no towns, no side-quests, and aside from having or not having certain equipment or team-members AND that bit in the very end...pretty linear as well.)
    We'll have to wait and see.

    No matter what it'll be I'll still pick it up, give it a run. I don't know...Is it too much to ask to just give us Fallout 2.5? I really don't mind the graphics staying the same, tweak the interface abit as all I'm asking. New storyline and such.
    The same thing in a new suit, since I'm getting kinda tired of "revolutionary" games. Is it just me getting old? Is this how it starts? ("Bah to feck with this new fangled electricity! Candles ftw!")

    Decent trailer though...
