    I just finished this game. Holy shit. And I promptly registered and am a NMA supporter.

    Excellent writing Bethesda. I'm never buying any of your products ever again. And as far as I'm concerned, Fallout 3 never happened, and we're still waiting for the sequel. The one made by people that actually know what they're doing.

    Just to correct you, the president doesn't change his mind.. Colonel Autumn disobeys his orders. But that wouldn't make a funny I guess.

    I strongly disagree and felt Fallout 3 was awesome. However, your post was a hilarious good read and parody of Fallout 3. Kudos!

    yeah, ii thought that the writing was very disjointed, illogical and well, a tad too superheroish for a fallout game.

    The Storyline directors for Fallout 3 definitely need some lessons in proper story construction. Considering some of Bethesda's earlier games Im surprised a few of the errors made it through. Some just were weird but possible. Only 2 were blatantly impossible. Albeit just barely. Anyways, Love the game!

    Amen, man.

    I have to admit, I thought the NMA community was going overly fanboy with the FO3 backlash. Because I really didn't follow the FO3 development at all, I didn't know the searing disappointment I had waiting for me.

    I hated the game so much that I was inspired to return it to BB and talk my way into a refund (I had a whole story prepared that's way more inventive than the F03 story). I have NEVER done that before.

    My additions are in italics. Also, did you get the Collector's Edition? I want your bobblehead and lunchbox. Keep your nerd tears off them and I'll pay you 20 dollars each.

    The main quest is that fucking stupid but lay off the sidequests they're at least as good as the ones in fallout 1

    edit: Better, now that I look back on the sidequests in that game and remember how broken they all are compared to fallout 2

    Them's fighting words.
    I turned my charisma all the way down, and put it in the parts Bethesda wanted me to care about, ie fighting skills. The only penalty I got out of this was that my speech checks were impossibly low all the time (except when I got Eden to kill itself in the most amazing dialogue ever). There wasn't a general dislike for my character or anything, which I was led to believe from the description. The game played exactly as if my charisma was at 24252 (the slider is broken in my version).

    I also chose the "I'm a 13 year old that shouldn't be playing this but does anyway because I'm a fucking rebel and Bethesda marketed the game to me anyway" perk, which allows me to carry lots of different guns, and shoot my way out of everything. When I choose this perk in FO1 and FO2, I still got a very decent story out of it.

    Edit: By the way, I'll forgive all the game's faults as soon as a mod is released that allows me to butcher every last one of Little Lamplight's residents.

    Child at Heart helps with those annoying little brats. A LOT. And your slider must be indeed broken. My Heavy Weapons Guy character (My main character is a nerd who managed to weasel his way out of killing anything in the game by using Speech, Science!, and Lockpick) never succeeds at his Speech checks. Maybe because my Speech is at 19 or so? Goes to show that Speech is still the most uber skill there is. Also, did you try killing Eden with his self-destruct code? Autumn had a holotape with that code on it.

    Yeah, I somehow passed that check. I first gave him the "where will it end boohoohoo?" bit, and after that, I told him his arguments made no sense, as if I never passed the previous check. Eh?

    Oh, and I'm changing my first anecdote.

    to be fair, the scene with president eden was a literary reference to a scene in anna karenina where count alexei made her realize that her super mutants were sterile and therefore her plan to have them repopulate the world was hopeless. but I'm sure you all knew that :roll:

    Wait, what? Eden's modified FEV would have killed mutants, Super Mutants, and Ghouls. It was designed to purify both the water and the human genome.

    Sure it's not going to work. Renaming might have worked long ago before any copy was shipped. It's more of a "let's see how many people agree" and PERHAPS FO4 will be more Fallout.
