Listen to Radio Blackrock in game. :P The insane ramblings of Tabitha the Super-Mutant..lawls.... It's too bad I have to take New Vegas back today, or else I'd go do that quest up there.

Depends, Wolfy. You ever played either of them before?

Anyone ever played Frontlines: Fuel of War?

Steam has it on sale today for $3 (versus $20), so...I was thinking about getting it..but I don't want to if it's not good..or if no one is playing it. O-o

Well. I guess they're not that different from Fallout 3, aside from being top-down and turn-based, and having a lot more depth. Fallout is probably the hardest game, with a time limit to finish the main story, among other things. Fallout 2 is ... a lot more humorous, with a lot more pop culture references and all. It's also a huge game. I love them both.

Hmm...Think I should get Fallout 2 or 1? o3o They have both up on Steam for $10...and well, I have $10 to spend. lol
Yes. You. Should.

Seriously, they are some of the best CRPGs in existence (although I haven't played the second very much yet as I got it fairly recently). Anyone who likes the genre just has to play them, even if they don't like post-apocalyptic settings in general. Sadly, quite a lot of things got cut from the second game, but there is a fan-made restoration project that restores the cut content (although it doesn't seem to be finished yet), which I haven't tried out yet. But even without it, there is a lot of things you can do there.

Personally, I didn't found the time limit of the first game so bad. For a long time, I wasn't even aware that there is a second one after you deliver the water chip to Vault 13 (the reason is rather bad, though: There is no indication of how much time you have left to stop the super mutant threat).

I just find time limits to be the bane of gaming enjoyment. You have enough time, sure, but wander around aimlessly too long, and you're screwed. Which sucks, because sometimes wandering around aimlessly and kicking ass is all you want to do!

Here's some advice, too: making a deal with the water merchants, while giving you more time on the first part, gives you less time on the second part.

It's the better game in my opinion, but it depends on what you're after. Fallout 1 probably has the better story, but Fallout 2, at least as far as I can tell, does have a larger map, more places to visit, more side quests, that sort of thing. But, yeah, there's no time limit in Fallout 2 ( even though creepy dreams want to give you the impression there is ), so if you're just looking to fuck around in the atomic wasteland, it's probably the better choice. xD

Wait! This just in: apparently, patch 1.1 eliminates the time limit on the second part of Fallout 1. Meaning you can fuck around in the atomic wasteland there as well. If the version you're getting is patched, I guess.

lol..well, I bought Bioshock..so I still have $10..but I'm torn between Fallout 2, Counter Strike, or Some game where you Bowl...with zombies as the pins. (Or Frontline: fuel of war..but I don't know...I mean, I keep hearing the community isn't that good anymore.)

Hmm...I may wait one more day..tommorow is the last day of the THQ sale, so maybe they'll have something good.

I love Fable 3. I have liked all the Fable games but 3 is by far the best. Despite obvious opinion-driven flaws in the first two games Fable maintains a certain amount of unique, appealing character that just lets it be awesome!

Seriously my pistol got gilded just because I have a fortune! Evolving weapons for the win!

I may have to take the gift card I got on my last visit to Gamestop and trade in Fallout 3 and buy Fable 3. I mean to get Fable 3 on Steam anyway ( as soon as the price drops ... )

But then, I'll probably be getting Black Ops as soon as it releases. Hmm .. Black Ops should be the last, though.

More like Glowing Tattoos for the win...Though I wish my spellcasting looked more...impressive. You know, Charging it causes will-lines to show up on her body and all that...I'd love to see that. D:

Oddly enough it happens wit flourishing. Maybe it's just an indicator that your flourish is ready. I don't know. I don't miss will lines all that much but maybe that's what happens when you get your will through gauntlets? Who knows?

I know it does it during flourishes (Not all the time, though)...But..D: I want will lines! I want to look awesome while I blast my enemies with magic...(Though, I always have to resort to a sword or gun to finish them off..I think magic got a nerf. >_>)

Probably because of spell-weaving which is like a kill all the time. Still one spell at a time is so Fable 2.

I use ForcePush + Shock

But that still doesn't kill them faster than a gun or the sword. D:
