    Hi, I'm Visajala, new here but have been Fallout fan for 5 years and will be forever, even if no next games are published. Fallout is really unique game, a world where you can just live, spending there hours and weeks. Never thought I could love anything "post-apocalyptic", as I find the whole theme completely repulsive and have no desire to read/watch/play anything like "The road" or "Metro-2033", not to mention the real life apoc (God forbid!), I'd kill myself at once. Fallout is an exclusion, maybe because it has a shade of a certain fabulousness, this world seems to be kinder, brighter, better than the real post-apoc might be. Where else can you see computers working without electricity, edible after 200 year food, clothes which make you stronger or smarter etc. etc. - its a fairytale! "Oblivion with guns" is the best description of Fallout3/NV and this indeed makes it the best game for me. TES-series are good, but too ancient and medieval, I prefer something more futuristic.
    My first Fallout game was Fo3 and it's also my favorite game, not because New Vegas is worse - it's even better, but owing to my personal sympathies: Enclave (sideable due to mods), my dear President (just perfect!), my beloved August (though not agree with him), flock of ED-Es (coolest robots ever), lots of fantastic weapons and armors (shellproof or stealthy as you wish), interesting plot (I really think so), aliens (being an X-files fan appreciate it) and the world itself is very wide. What about Fo1 and 2 I cannot judge here, I haven't played this games, have only read the storyline and it is literally exciting.

    Now I gave up gaming for a period of time, as I had procrastination issues and need to study and work hard now, no place for games in my schedule left. I'll return to Fallout games and modding after fixing things in my to-do list. This doesn't prevent joining fan-communities nevertheless. It's nice to see there are still many fans and community is alive!

    I'm also a huge Harry Potter books and films fan:) Someone may recognize Slytherin emblem on my avatar. I'm not Voldemort supporter, but I like Slytherin faculty. Enclave in Fallout acts in a very slytherinish way to my mind.
    My nick "Visajala" means "poisoned water" in Sanskrit. Recently I took interest in the Hinduism and its philosophy and found in the dictionary a fallout-style name proper to the Enclave supporter.

    Hello. New here. I'm a fan of Fallout. I simply love the universe that has been constructed for the games, and can't really say which ones are my favorite because I love them all.
    I joined because I'm interested in starting or joining a Fallout roleplay. Mostly starting, if possible, because I have an idea for one.

    Couldn't you say the same of any forum? I mean, so long as you don't have any music in the background?

    No, I'm not clueless, I get the joke. Just making my own... XD

    Hey. My name is ProtoMob.

    I've been reading this forum for a while now, but didn't bother to register until now. I've been a fan of the Fallout series for about two years now, though I mainly prefer the Black Isle Studios/Obsidian games. I don't exactly hate Fallout 3, but I find myself often just trying to make sense out of something in the game (like how the hell is Little Lamplight still populated or what the hell do people even eat)

    I'd probably play Fallout 3 more if finding good lore-friendly mods wasn't such a pain in the ass. After all the Nexus is mostly filled with godawful anime mods and shitty comics about someone's Mary-Sue character. Not to mention the admins there are just moronic.

    Oh well. When I'm not playing Fallout, I make mods for New Vegas. I'm currently working on two mods, one cranks up the difficulty up to near-merciless and the other one redesigns the towns and makes them look more "classic," like, it adds back the weird mohawk-head buildings and whatnot. When I'm not modding New Vegas, I usually just loiter on the Internet, read some Fallout lore, watch JonTron's videos, laugh at SJWs and tell them to go feast upon defecation etc.

    Oh and my favorite classic Fallout game is probably the first one. The second one was not bad and did some things better than the first one, but it often went too far with all the fedora-wearing mooks, porn studios and talking rats. If someone managed to remove those things or turn them into something more "tolerable," I'd be a happy Finnish recluse.

    Hello and welcome!

    Good man. That's the right attitude to have. I'm sure you're aware, but many people here react with rabid fury to any mention of not outright hating FO3, and it's startling few who will say, sensibly, that it's not a great game, but it's not the worst thing ever made. But then again, a good mix of different outlooks always makes for a healthy community, so I think you'd find yourself at home here just fine!

    LINKS!!!???!!!???!!! That sounds awesome! =D

    I like you already! =D

    Oh well, nobody's perfect! =)

    There aren't any links yet, they're still heavily WIP.

    I'm not sure if I'll host them on Nexus because they have a few assets from Fallout 3 and knowing Nexus moderators, they'll probably just delete the mods like the nillywillies they are. I'll most likely upload the mods on NMA.

    The town redesign mod is going a bit slow due to the lack of meshes of the classic buildings, but I recently started working together with a 3D modeller. He's currently recreating the beige Junktown/Navarro gas station building. Y'know, the one where Doc Morbid is.

    The difficulty mod mostly makes items like stimpaks, weapons and ammunition and food scarce. You won't probably get a decent shooty until after Primm (unless you don't mind dealing with NCR assassin squads) It also adds back a few classic items, like the Pipe Rifle, Spear and Hardened Power Armor. I'm also planning on adding the Wattz laser weapons and the motorcycle football armor.

    Hi guys! I'm back again after a long haietus! Some of you might remember me posting I was going through army basic training. Well I finished now, and made it to AIT so I can now have access to my phone and electronics again. I'll be back to posting off and on, joining fallout debates as usual, and just hanging out. Missed you all at NMA and I'm glad to be back! *salutes* hooah guys!
