Is it? hmmmm?
I've been at it nearly 80 hours and I'm still enjoying it :D
thought it was gash
it was the atmosphere that ruined it for me. I LOVED oblivion. And then you play this game and it's all HARSH WASTELAND HARSH WASTELAND HARSH WASTELAND HARSH WASTELAND. It's just fucking bleak and looks like an incomplete game to me. I love the whole RPG part and stuff. It was just the atmosphere of the game. Too heavy for me. Also, it was fucking frightening and I don't like scary games lol.
I just couldn't get into it.
Just escaped from the vault. So far I'm loving it. Excellent production values - sense of being immursed in a world that I haven't really felt since I completed Bioshock.
it's like a total appealing little world. The freedom to do stuff is incredible, so much good times :]
Though I found it to be a bit of a slow burner- initially when getting into the wastelands I was a bit confused, it was a tad hard to see what was going on, and combat was a bit spongey. Much better once I'd levelled up a bit and started a few quests to get the story going.
it's so vast it can be a bit confusing to begin with, but that is one of it's strengths, the way you can just come out of the vault and blindly wander wherever you like - although getting killed is always a worry!
I made the change and it looks fucking beautiful and crystal clear
only 32" though which is maybe a bit small for my living room.
I think it may have been as the first place I went to outside the Vault was Megaton in the dark, which was impossible to navigate!
I've got a 32" but i sit REALLY close to it so perhaps there's the difference.
On a related note, it took me until this weekend and 4 weeks of having an HD TV to realise that I needed to change teh Xbox settings to output in HD :S
I'm only running mine through component as my xbox doesn't have HDMI. One day I'll have a 40" HDTV wallmounted... that's the dream anyway.
I can hear the Feral Ghoul but I can't... OH FUCK, FERAL GHOUL RIGHT UP IN MY FACE INSTINCTIVE SHOTGUN BLAST TO ITS FACE. Hehe. Silly Feral Ghoul.
sorts out all of your ghoul-related issues.
I haven't played for ages. Last time I played, I'd just made my way into the Citadel, but it seemed to be quite processor intensive, so I gave up.
a bit of advice: don't rush to get levelled up. And don't obssess over every nook and cranny; there is WAY too much big stuff to occupy your attention. My only failing with the game - and it's a big one - is that the tension falls out of it once you hit the level cap.
And DON'T GO TO OLD OLNEY. 'We don't go there any more.'
jesus christ, the first time I went there I shat myself. Fucking shat myself. It's ok if you've got the alien blaster though, thank god.
Definitely agree about the rush to level up, rocking around the wasteland fully tooled up at level 20 does take some of the fun out of it. The final DLC thing is apparently going to up the level cap to level 30 and let you carry on after the end of the game. Looking forward to that!
but I'm really enjoying finding out all of the little bits of back story and nuances that makes it one of the best games I've played in AGES
