I can't see anything being sacrificed for the consoles on this apart from the graphics, besides i'm gonna get it on pc anyway as i'm sure those poindexter modders will be coming up with some good shit.

Ever play Morrowind? Much better than Oblivion and the last Elder Scrolls game to be solely developed for the PC, Oblivion has about half the content and immersion :(

i'm half way through far cry 2 now, and stuck on a monster hard bit.


so much fun though. the other day i sniped out a guard post before i went over there, but i was looking about and there was still somebody shooting me. i soon realised one of the guys i'd sniped was still alive, and shooting at me from the floor. so i set him on fire with a flame thrower. ha.

So who here has got it then.

It's got the feel of oblivion but the setting is friggin wicked, proper depressing and believable post nuclear wasteland and the new vats comabt system works well good, has a sort of kill cam slo mo bit if you kill them with a head shot.

thinking about it. does it have the serious gays like oblivion did:

1. if you want to have the absolute best character/stats, you have to sacrifice the enjoyment of the game and go through a tedious process of restricting (not using) certain skills to get the full potential of your character after every level?
2. when you get stronger, do all the other monsters get stronger too?

if these answers are both no, i will buy it.

I've not played it, so I can't be too sure.

I know the enemies don't level up with you though, from what I've read there are plenty of baddies out there that will tear you a new one if you come across them at the wrong time...

that's good news. there should be some easy areas and some impossible ones. i just cant stand it when creatures get more powerful everytime you increase in level though, feels a bit anti progressive

Yeah, I agree. There's some good mods for oblivion that sort that out.

Yeah, i used those mods, but until i discovered them i got a character to like level 10 by walking everywhere and not jumping/attacking with certain weapons to optimise my cahracter and it drove me nuts lol

...then just play it normally!

Fair do's though, I get quite anally retentive with stuff like that too, but I couldn't be bothered with all that just to get a few +5s when levelling.

My worst habit is being a pickpocket/lockpicking character and quicksaving/loading until i get the lock/pocket picked, then doing the same with every lock or pocket I come across...

i've always been that, like having to kill a boss without using any medipacks, and keep reloading the save until i get it right, despite having about 50 medipacks anyway. what a cunt i am. its alot worse for RPG's though.

nah they don't level up as you do. When I first started the game I wondered into an abandoned school and got fucking raped with a minigun by some super mutant bastard and I only recently went back with enough firepower and armour to kill him.

everytime you level up your given 20 points to distribute wherever you want on the stats followed by a perk, works really well.

It should be bought just to experience the proper rank setting and pretty much constant peril when your exploring a new building oh and the behemoths which can only be killed with a mini nuke launcher called the big boy.

I may have to indulge in Left 4 Dead but not untill i've finished Fallout which is shaping up to be my personal game of the year thus far.

Provided Skate 2 doesn't come out this year.

I used to do this in Fallout 1 and 2 a lot. Dunno how different it is but the general idea was that there are certain areas you avoid until you're levelled up and stuff.

For those of you that haven't got it yet, what the fuuuuu.

It is true with the super mutants, they proper fuck you over in the earlier stages, i'm now half way to level 20 (the max) and with the stats and guns i have they die in a few shots.

There are worse things out there though, the deathclaws i think being the dirtiest.
