Charles left his home (a fortified immobile bus) in order to procure new reading material. Arriving at the ruined settlement at Jury Street he encountered raiders and traps but succeeded in finding new books to read.

However his injuries meant he was unable to look through the metro. Now he must head to the nearby settlement of Megaton to obtain treatment for his more complicated injuries and general supplies.

Fortunately he has plenty to trade.

>> No.10827073

Right then. The new day has arrived and its time to head out to Megaton. My legs fine now but my arms are still fucked, can't even keep my gun straight.

So best to avoid anyone until I get to Megaton.

You're totally putting words in my mouth. I don't like the game because its using a bad engine for a Fallout game, which is supposed to play like a traditional PNP system instead of being a twitch based LARP simulator where stats mean almost shit.

The fact that its first person doesn't bother me at all, or that its real time, but they made no effort to make SPECIAL work right, or their halfassed attempt to capture the atmosphere and settings of the first two.

New Vegas is improving on that significantly you know.

But what I find funny is how many people complained and said "Fallout 3 wasn't accessible enough" or were annoyed by how the stats DID affect the gameplay (as negligible as the difference may have been, there were complaints). Fact is you can't make everybody happy, and I think the New Vegas creators are trying to appeal more to Fallout fans than casual entry-level Fallout 3 players.

>> No.10827925

I've been keeping up with Obsidian's development on it, but I think I'm going to wait and buy the game of the year edition so I can get the inevitable DLC and not feel completely ripped off.

-One of the followers references Fallout 3
-The wasteland is as big as or bigger than Fallout 3's
-More stuff about damage threshold and different ammo types
-Some radio DJ called "Mr. New Vegas"
-It's possible to obtain a "blinged out Pip-Boy model" called the Pip-Boy 3 Billion
-They're "not ready to talk about DLC" for New Vegas
-Still no multiplayer

Let's be honest. Most /v/ideo gamers are slack-jawed 13 year olds. Fallout 3 was my first time even HEARING about fallout, and i found it incredibly entertaining. You can play through the game just fine without having any real sense of how things work, or you can power game like only a table-topper could, and do just fine either way.

Also: I am, at this very moment, playing Fallout 1 for the first time. It took me a week to find a version which worked on windows 7, and I'm hoping it was worth it.

The Sheriff was very understanding. Even thanked me.

After a discussion we agreed the bomb should be dealt with and he offered me a tidy sum to disarm it.Fortunately I succeeded and got the money.

All in all a good day so far and I still haven't sold Moira my stuff yet.

Now then I wonder what I should do now?

I could talk to Walter and see if he needs a hand with the water pipes which are leaking everywhere, or I could go to Moira and sell my stuff. I did hear from the Doc that Leo Stahl has a chem habit...maybe I should see if I can help him with that?

On the way to see Moira I run into Walter and ask him about the pipes. He says theres 3 leaks need takin care of so I tell him I'll keep an eye out.

When I get to Moiras shop I sell the stuff for some ammo, 2 stimmys and just short of 200 caps.

But she hits me with an interesting offer. She's making a "wasteland survival guide" and would be very interested in tapping my extensive experience.

She's offering caps and goodies so my interest is certainly aroused but not sure. It seems dangerous but money is always good.

Well I agreed and she's certainly bouncing with glee. There's three things she wants for the first chapter.

First one is finding food (sounds nice and easy)

Secondly she wants to see what effect radiation has on a ghoul. She's got loads of info on humans but little on our kind so in the interests of suiting all tastes she wants to observe me when I'm strongly irradiated.

Well thats the end of another Ghoulquest thread. The second didn't go down so well.

I might switch to a more normal questthread format to stop the bitching from summer /tg/ (who are scared of new things). Although it would give me a chance to do a more interesting plot than the freeform one I have going right now.

We'll see I guess.

Its a Dragonuv with an FWE patch.

Apparently ferals won't attack me. Not had a chance to test this mind.

I'd like a bit of honest feedback.

Ways to improve ghoulquest?

to be truthfully honest, fucking stream your adventures or at least record them.

That's gonna be torture on my connection though.

Plus I couldn't get community input except even more vague stuff.

This only really works well if you do a Livestream.

Pink did a Vanilla Playthrough of Fallout 3 once. That was fun.

Trust me, if you can get people in your channel, it'll be cool. Only problem is yeah, you need a decent connection or reasonably powerful computer to stream decently. You might end up having to turn some settings down or experiment until you hit a sweet spot for streaming.

Bah I don't have the connection for a livestream...

Ah well. Maybe I'll just do stories instead.

I did see a rather cool looking controllable liberty prime mod...

Giant Robot battles in the wasteland plzkthx?

If you're enjoying it, keep doing it. Sometimes you'll get a good crowd like the first time, sometimes you'll get a crap crowd like the second. You just have to figure out the best time to do this. Once you get more or less regular with that, you'll have regulars that like to follow the threads.

I've been in both now and all I can advise is to learn from other quest threads... success or failure depends on your ability to weather the unhappy sons of bitches that seek to ruin it.
