    Yesterday I watched a pretty decent stream, the guy was exploring, doing quests, listening to the radio...
    I watched from 23:00 until 1:00AM, then I had to go to sleep...
    Good thing I didnt stay longer, it'll spoil the whole game

    Hmm, that has no bad effects in a video game, but what danger risk are you running when you try that for real?

    When I saw him playing, he was attempting to take on the entire Tops casino and the robotic guards while stealing the entire casino supply of beer. 5 bouncers proceeded to fill him full of lead while he desperately shot his grenade launcher.

    Maybe it's the lack of multiplayer that makes a pirate so shitty at games?

    Damn, so he is roleplaying a frat boy, annoying people for no apparent reason while stealing useless trinkets and booze.

    Awww...

    (A developer on SomethingAwful forums.)

    I'd hoped they might have redesigned the laser weapons a bit or given them integrated laser sights or something. Sucks that all the Guns users will now have lovely realistic ironsights while energy users will still just have the camera zooming in a little.

    That's only laser pistol and, maybe, plasma caster.

    Here's hoping. The Fallout 3 plasma pistol and plasma rifle didn't have any iron sights either.

    But at least I think the Plasma Defender does.

    My brother decided to steal all the beer in Cyrodil when he played Oblivion, though he's not sure why.

    The laser weapons used iron sights aiming with the Fallout 3 mod but it was damn hard to use because you ended up with a massive square taking up your screen.

    God damn these early playthroughs. And I still have to wait 'till next Friday until I get my copy, while these douchbags play the same game like it was Saints Row.

    How can I make these Vids load faster?
    I'm watching it 5 seconds then waiting for it to load, which takes about 5 minutes
    I closed every program that might interfere with the internet speed but it's still running slow...
    What should I do?

    I like that Jerle guy's playthrough. He doesn't murder folks like all the other douchebags on there.

    Liking what I am seeing intensely. I especially like the sounds. Houses creak and moan, wind blows, creatures make howls in the distance, and guns make satisfying bangs.

    I also love geckos. Especially the "Head Crippled" animation they have.

    I've not really followed his streams but another thing that seems promising is that, at least in the earlier parts of the game (I'm watching one of his earlier recordings), he has pretty few healing supplies.

    Granted, it may be due to the fact that he doesn't seem to explore every nook like I tend to do myself, but I *hope* it means stuff like Stimpaks really are rarer this time around.

    Yeah, I remember reading that House buys them for like 20,000 caps each or something like that.

    They're looking like the basic way to earn the money for implants.

    He's Charles Foster Kane! :P

    A lot of this stuff sounds great but I really, really, dislike the inclusion of the Strip into an otherwise interesting setting clearly inspired by Van Buren and the recruiting quest mentioned is a good example why. The entire concept just seems so cheesy and unnecessary.
