    Also the reason why Fallout Chloe doesn't take Dogmeat along on her adventures anymore. Although he doesn't die (none of the followers in Fallout can), his painful yelps when he gets hurt are absolutely tear jerking. So he sports his camo bandana and guards her settlements instead and I don't have to cry my way through applying a stimpak.

    For me, it all started with Dogmeat in the original Fallout on PC.

    (Yes young people, Fallout existed before the year 2000.)

    In that version Dogmeat can die, which is why I never took him on dangerous missions. He sure did love riding around the wasteland in the car though.

    Anyways... Good ol' Dogmeat...

    How about Rex in New Vegas? The cyborg dog idea was by far my favorite.

    I've never played FO1 & 2 but fell in love with Tactics, 3 and Vegas. :)

    Tactics is cool. I highly recommend FO1 & especially 2. The cyborg dog makes its first appearance in 2. In fact, there is a robodog and a cyborg dog in Fallout 2. It's funny because the cyborg dog talks and the robodog just barks and makes whirring and clicking noises.

    I also recommend Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

    *****EDIT********

    I forgot to mention that there's a hidden location in Fallout 2 where you find Dogmeat and if you're wearing the Vault Dweller suit, he'll follow you.

    Oooh, thanks for the heads up! My husband is a huge Fallout fan and has been playing the games since OG times, just like with TES. He's recommended that I give 1 & 2 a shot someday. I have so many games on my to-be-played list it's not even funny.

    Very cool! If you like old school dungeon crawlers, check out Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna. The story line is very trope-y but the gameplay is great and you can create an adventure party with up to seven NPC's.

    Here's my party:

    Dude, that looks awesome! Thanks for the recommendation. Another game to try out. :D I'm assuming it's not on Steam...

    As far as I know, not yet. You can get a used version for pretty cheap on Amazon or ebay. Because it was developed by Microsoft, it works well on Windows 10.

    Legends of Aranna is an expansion and includes the original Dungeon Siege.

    Here's how the game starts:

    That looks right up my alley. Going to look for it on Amazon and see what I can find.

    Nice! I could talk about Dungeon Siege for hours. It has a high replay value because there are a lot of hidden areas to discover.

    Add to that the hundreds of spells, weapons, monsters plus the fact that you can make your character look anyway you want and voila: you have an awesomely fun game!

    You ever thought about Star Wars Battlefront? Probably one of the best games I have ever played.
     
  13. What console(s)?

    I love Star Wars, so...

    Battlefront is so good! I have PS3, so I can't play it at home, but I have played some of it at a friend's house. Probably my favorite Star Wars game besides Force Unleashed.

    I was just about to say, "wait what" to Chesterama's post. I only know Dogmeat through Fallout 1, and he died every time I played. And I give him the skewer of meat every time, even though I know he's going to die a tragic death soon after.

    Such a good dog. I try so hard to keep him alive, but to no avail.

    I just came across a band called "Dancing About Architectures" which I found to be highly amusing. Unfortunately I wasn't in the mood for their kind of music, but I may get back to it later.

    I hope the show gets a decent budget. I tried to watch The Shannarra Chronicles one... they could have used some slightly more expensive actors.

    Hope so too. I think having such a high quality musician on board is a good omen for the project in total at least.
