nma-fallout.com? Kinda too big for me though.
bOnEs
yea, just a little... how about, www.falloutwasteland.com? it's available...

hey, didn't synch have a fallout website??
Massacre
Yeah. I think I might still have it bookmarked in IE.
bOnEs
i'm just going to let the fallout 3 thread die off and disappear... otherwise, i'd post this shit in that thread...

http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2010/08/e...lica_weapo.html

this guy has created two replicas of fallout 3 weapons... and they are B.A.D.A.S.S... check this shit out!!



i'm not sold on the plasma rifle but that wazer wifle is amazing looking... even if it doesn't work, i'd love to have one...
Qdeathstar
Well, I think hardcorefallout.com is a good domain name ... with hardcore mode and all. Plus it has a nice ring to it.. I registered it...maybe i'll use it.. i don't want it to turn into gta4.net again though and have them shut it down and hold all my data hostage unless i agree to pay 70/mo for a dedicated server...
asthenia
QD - wtf? Could you not sue them for that?

Those replicas look fucking beautiful. I'd have so much stuff like that if I had the time and money for it, I definitely have the patience.
Qdeathstar
I might have been able to sue them, if i had the money to sue them.

I made a a small logo...

Nice. that sucks.


So I just loaded up Fo3 cause I haven't played in months.

Blacked out are the options; Continue & Load.

WHAT. THE. FUCK?

I definitely didn't delete them ... fml.
bOnEs
you don't back up your save files?!? ouch... did you delete something recently because, i lost my very first level 20 fallout 3 character by deleting a game save from a different game... it was after that point when i realized i needed a memory card...
asthenia
Never had cause to til now. Not once lost a save file before. doh (12).gif I probably won't either ... it's proving rather fun replaying it knowing I can't skip to my completed character and just kill shit ... I'm always deleting demo's and the like, but never in 3 years has it affected any other file on the console. :/ Ah well.

The only thing I'm really bummed about is having to play one of the DLC's ... the simulation one, I fucking hated that.
Massacre
You're on PS3, aren't you, Ast? Not PC?
asthenia
Yup.
Massacre
Oh. Then you're fucked.

Buy the GOTY Edition for PC. It's worth it, and I guarantee you'll have dozens of mods installed within your first week.
bOnEs
it happened when i deleted a saved game file, not a game or demo... did you delete one of those recently??
asthenia
Nope Sai. Rarely even look at my saves.

I would already have it Massy but I don't have any windows machines at the moment ... there were some ... complications. I'm saving for a new machine atm. For now it's MacBook Pro all the way :/ And you should change that "week" to "day" ... I'm a monster for PC gaming and mods ... I still played VC and my mods up until the .... complications.

Massacre
New Vegas will be out by the time you get a new PC, but you'll still want to go back to Fallout 3. I know I'll never be done with it.
bOnEs
i still have my evil dead "ash" file waiting for me when i am ready biggrin.gif... i foresee me playing this in about a month...
Massacre
I know it's going to piss you off, because you don't have the PC version, but there's a mod that replaces all the non-human enemies in the game with ghouls. Perfect for your Evil Dead file.
bOnEs
yea, you mentioned that... i also saw a mod that made the skins look more like zombies instead of ghouls... ahh, if only i had a better computer... someday... someday...

All of them? Even Deathclaws, and Radscorps?
Massacre
There were separate mods for each creature. I don't think they had one for Deathclaws. They had one for Radscorpions, but it was before Broken Steel, so Albino Radscorps still appear.

I'm thinking about going for the fallout 3 platinum trophy in the next few days. I've not played it in a while, but i though i'd get back into the swing of it, ready for this.

As soon as I get a new PC I'll be back on Oblivion too.. I still play it on my consoles too.

This is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. And I've seen Ast's anus covered in maraschino cherries.


bOnEs
i would love to build a custom PC, just for reasons like this... making my own customized box... looks cool, BTW...

in other news, i just pre-ordered the new vegas collector's edition from walmart.com, which guarantees street delivery the day it's released... apparently that's the only way to get the exclusive content, by ordering from their website... and i did a little research, the only "exclusive" items in each pack is the weapon and armor... the rest (stimpaks, super stimpaks, canteen, binoculars, repair kits, throwing knives, etc) can be found in the game... the only one that might be slightly different is the vault 13 canteen, which probably is only different by name...

about a month and a half to go!! i hope there's no delays...

walmart.com is the only place?

would be good to know the details.

here is what the wiki has, I've no idea if it's correct or which sites offer the cool stuff:

Pre Order Bonus Packs

Bethesda has announced several pre-order bonus packs giving specific in-game items,
they include the "Classic", "Tribal", "Caravan" and "Mercenary" packs
available when pre-ordering at specific outlets.

Collector's Edition

The Collector's Edition was revealed on May 11, 2010.
Distribution will be worldwide and available to all platforms.
Its enclosed contents include poker chips from Fallout: New Vegas casinos,
a deck of cards, a graphic novel, and a making-of documentary DVD




I've just read the older posts about the various stores selling the different pre-order packs.
Can't believe KMart is still in business. I'll be going Classic I guess.....


Here is some new game play from the makers, interviewed by IGN @ E3 2010:

dude, it's the synch man, man!! biggrin.gif... yea, i do believe the walmart pre-order packs are only available online... when i check the website it said, walmart.com exlcusive... i don't ever go into walmart but maybe twice a year so, i am not even sure if they are available in-store... but, i'd rather get it shipped anyways than walk into that store, lol laugh.gif...

what do you think, synch, what's the best pack in your opinion?? i know your probably stuck with the classic pack but, which one do you think is the most useful??

Not really stuck with Classic, it's just that there is a killer Gamestop by where I'm staying at.
The write up says Gamestop provides the Classic, so I'll probably go that way.
The items really don't look that special except for the armored vault suit.
Also I would like the collector's edition, but unsure if I'll go that far.

If you watch the IGN E3 2010 demo, it looks like the Caravan or Merc look like possibly best value.
Especially if you want to play an evil or neutral character, and the stuff looks great for hardcore mode.
I remember you said that much of the other stuff can be found in-game.

Dude - Binoculars, cool! AND repair kit? Awesome. drool.gif

Of course the Caravan shotgun and Merc Grenade Rifle look tasty.

http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/home/preorder-fnv-us.php

^ The official site write up really makes me want to get them all. blush.gif

You're probably getting the best value with the Caravan walmart deal.

bOnEs
i would like them all as well but i know some idiots are going to be selling them for like $20 a piece on ebay... not worth it IMO... i know stoic said he was going to sell his classic pack code online for some money... but yea, to me the caravan pack and the mercenary pack look like the best value... the armor for both and the weapons seem like the best value... getting a 10mm pistol and a machete with the other packs seem insignificant when your talking about a shotgun and grenade launcher laugh.gif... plus, the armors are lightweight versions, which would definitely help out scavengers...

I could care less about selling anything, we have been through that before with GTA, etc.
The point here is value, and I think you are right with the Caravan module.

Merc looks very cool, by the way. Might sway my vote. thumbup.gif

Are you calling me an idiot? I think the idiots are ones who are willing to pay $20(plus) for them.

I am definitely selling mine. All of these "exclusive" preorder bonuses are the most insignificant shit in the world, yet people pay hand-over-fist to get them - only for them to be released on XBL or PSN two months later for a couple of bucks. Pre-order bonuses are non-essential parts of the game thrown in to get your business at certain retailers. It's a good idea to lure buyers to preorder, but it's becoming a bit ridiculous. I'm getting my copy of the game at Gamestop, not because of the pre-order bonus, but because it's close to my work and Gamestop will have some sort of trade-in promotion I can take advantage of as the time draws near.

When the game releases, I'll go pick up my copy of the game, open it up and put the code on eBay. Within 24 hours, someone will have forked over $20-40 for this intangible piece of shit code that is going to get them a low-stat suit, shitty gun and a couple of Stim-packs. If missing out on that little bit of coding in the game; which I will likely never need and will be replaced with much more awesome shit that the game has already included; pays for 1/4 to 1/2 of my collector's edition, I'm totally down for that.
PabloHoneyOle
Also, achievements are out - as well as an ESRB rating that says you can get fucked (FISTO'D) a robot.

that's some common sense right there.
nice spin on the extra pre-order stuff, makes one think. thumbup.gif
i'm sticking with the gamestop by my place as well.

i read about sex with robots and people before, but those achievements look excellent.

insert shameless hype here

can't wait for mojave walker. just like bog walker, get it in like a few hours in point lookout.
of course mojave will be much bigger than point lookout, but it is always a fun journey.

plus the damage achievements are going to be well worth it, destruction along the way.

still the game has that Las Venturas feel, have to shake that part out.
never really cared for the gambling thing in San Andreas.

new weapons, new achievements.....new reason to live.

Are you calling me an idiot? I think the idiots are ones who are willing to pay $20(plus) for them.

that's what i meant, i worded it wrong... i meant to say, "...are going to be buying them for like $20 a piece on ebay..."... but, i am still down for getting this stuff for my game... and if i don't want to use it for a new file later on, i can just sell the items at the first shop, or just drop them on the ground somewhere to start... but, my character is a courier and having binoculars and lightweight leather armor seems like it fits perfectly... the shotgun might be overkill but hey, gotta have some sort of ordinance...

also, i'm not looking at the achievements... i want them to be a surprise when i launch the game plus, i don't want to know what the quests are called... but, i did read that ESRB thing earlier this morning laugh.gif... fisto activate!!

with this release of this stuff, it makes me believe there won't be any delays and the game is right on schedule for release... YAY!!

i think i just watched the intro movie for new vegas... since i am a PS+ user, i get free access to the networks show called, QORE... and they were previewing new vegas, which was cool to see it in action on my HD screen... but, they also had this casino-style slot machine that unlocked wallapers and an additional video... and this additional video started out similar to fallout 3, but with a close up of a picture in a vegas casino, panning out through the city and eventually all the way out to the wasteland where mr. new vegas gives a speech before he puts a bullet in my head...

it was pretty sweet biggrin.gif.... too bad youtube removed it due to a zenimax copyright issue... pfft...
Massacre
Mr. New Vegas doesn't shoot you. Unless the spoiler in that magazine was wrong...
bOnEs
yea your right, i don't think it was mr. new vegas as that's the DJ... but some guy in a snazzy checkered suit shot me... talked like a mobster, and mentioned to the two raiders/mercs near him that he likes to see his victims before he shoots them unlike most of the wastelend so, maybe it was mr. house... but, he already runs lucky 38 and supposedly that's why your shot... your carrying one of those chips that allows access to the casino...

so, who knows who that mafia guy was... it was a pretty fucking cool intro though biggrin.gif... here's a screenshot of the now removed video, which conveniently still has a screen still from the video of the guy i was talking about...

Click to view attachment

i wish i could watch that video another hundred times here at work but they fucking removed it from the web... now i'll just have to wait until i get home and watch it on QORE again mad.gif...
Massacre
Yeah, I forget the guy's name but. He's the leader of the Geckos, a mobster gang. He's voiced by Matthew Perry.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, the ghoul companion, Raul? He's voiced by Danny Trejo.
bOnEs
benny... yup, that's the guy... and yea, i heard danny trejo is a voice actor, which is bad ass biggrin.gif... it seems like new vegas is shaping up to at least have a variety of voices... i am sure we'll hear jericho every now and then but, probably not as often as you did in fallout 3... i swear i heard his voice in every other male character...

That is fucking awesome!

I just saw Machete, best film I've seen in a long time. Rodriguez is a genius.
Trejo is as usual, completely awesome in every way. This time around, he's the star,
kills everyone, and makes out with at least 4 babes. All while being himself.

For those who don't know, Trejo was Umberto Robina in GTA:VC, and GTA:VCS.
Massacre
They added Trejo's trademark 'stache to Raul, but because he's a ghoul, half of it is missing. I think they should've just put in a ghoulified Trejo instead of Raul, personally. Now that they're using celebrity voices for characters, I fully expect to see a real person as a ghoul in a future game.

haha, i didn't make the connection until just now, "eeeehhh, you got some BIG cajones!!" laugh.gif...

hell yea, machete was a babe magnet, even lindsay lohan flashed her kids for machete... it was funny to see her play a parody of herself, i wonder if she filmed this before her whole jail thing...

@massacre - they would have to of been cryogenically frozen to survive 200 years... but, mr. house was frozen for 200 years so he could rule new vegas in the future so it's totally possible... if anything, they would be parody characters of someone from real-life... they say mr. house is a parody of howard hughes...

EDIT: sorry, i didn't catch the ghoul part of your post... now THAT'S totally possible... a parody ghoul character of an actor from our time... i'd like to see a denzel washington or a loony jim carey laugh.gif...
Massacre
Ghoul Jim Carey would be epic. That guy's batshit already, but halfway to feral? He could have his own DLC.
bOnEs
actually, now that i've thought about it more, it would have to either be a celebrity frozen from our time, or someone we've never heard of from 2070... or maybe a child actor of today's age like miley cyrus could survive to 2077... but then again i fully expect her to overdose at a young age so that one might not happen...
Massacre
Hopefully Dakota Fanning makes it that long. I want to cannibalize her.
bOnEs


not sure when this video was shot but, i think it was at the PAX show that just closed... anyways it's an interview with that sawyer guy, talking about the game and giving you a look at the strip and some of the action during one of the missions in a town called, nelson... it's interesting in how he talks about the different factions, the way the strip works, companions, and the various things concerning weapons and story... i found it to be a good watch, if you've got 15 minutes to spare...

EDIT: lol, the title says E3 2010... oops... either way, i don't remember seeing it from way back then so, it's new to me, even if most of the content in the interview isn't... it's got some nice scenic shots of the strip and the town of nelson...
