    You ever thought about Star Wars Battlefront? Probably one of the best games I have ever played.
     
  2. 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.

    I find it hilarious when someone tries to me insult me by starting with, "well, you're not as old as I am so..."

    LOL laughing @ almost 40...wtf ever.

    I never found him in Fallout 2, but now I know where to look. Does he still die as easily?

    The only dog I recruited in Fallout 2 was that robot one, K-9.

    I've unfortunately never played Fallout 2 but I do know that he doesn't die in 4 and Rex doesn't die in New Vegas.

    Speaking of Dogmeat, I searched my videos and didn't find one with just him but I do have this one lol: (he's hanging around). This was my co-op tour for a gaming website and some drama had developed during the filming. :D

    I read somewhere that the next Fallout is rumored to be in New Orleans. If that's the case, I might never see the sunlight again haha! 4 came out during NaNo last year so needless to say, I got 10k into my story and decided the Commonwealth was more important.

    :mask:

    I definitely don't play just any ole FPS though. It has to be special since my gaming time is limited.

    Oh, wow. Now I'm going to have to replay that game and get Dogmeat, just to see him kick some supermutant ass.

    I bought Fallout 3 after I found, played and loved 1 and 2. I still haven't finished it. I love the atmosphere and everything, but the gameplay just isn't what it used to be.
    Even ignoring the FPS bit, something just feels off. But if I remember correctly, Bethesda (i.e. the Elder Scrolls developers) bought the rights after Fallout 2 (or Brotherhood of Steel, probably?); so that explains why the gameplay feels so different.

    On a related note, have you seen Wasteland 2? (For the uninitiated, Fallout was a kind of a spiritual successor to Wasteland 1; I put a couple of hours into Wasteland 1, but dang, that combat system.) It looks pretty good, and a looks like it'll play a lot like the old Fallouts and Wasteland. I bought a copy a while back, but haven't gotten around to trying it out.

    If Obsidian makes the Next Fallout again I will probably never play something else again. That's basically what happened after New Vegas. If Bethesda makes the Next Fallout, I will have fun shooting Supermutants. Either way it's a win.

    @La Volpe, we have Wasteland 2 but I've never played it. My husband loves it although he has yet to finish it. I've been threatening myself with playing it for ages now but maybe I just need to do it.

    Also...SNOW! Finally snow!!!

    *dusts off her snowshoes*

    I'll be heading into the mountains today...yes!

    Walking the Mojave almost makes you wish for a nuclear winter.

    New spell powers, too? :D I'm imagining your Koala in mage robes lol!

    The snow isn't deep enough yet to comfortably snowshoe. But getting outside is great now that it's warmer!

    Certainly. I now have the magical ability to sleep for 12 hours straight and smell Eucalyptus from a few meters away.

    I'm putting that on my resumé.
