New Fallout DLC day and new arcade titles.......

Post  Ghost on Mon Jul 25, 2011 1:26 pm

So I picked up "Old World Blues" the latest Fallout: New Vegas DLC and so far so good!. The DLC has a great story line, and some hilarious NPC's not to mention the lvl cap being pushed to 45, addition of new DLC based perks and the first New Vegas DLC to have no restrictions to weight or gear what so ever! So far just scrapping the surface of the DLC but it looks like it is going to be a good one!

Also, I have some left over M$ points and having a hard time deciding what arcade title to pick up. I have narrowed it down to 2 choices.

Torchlight

A classic hack and slash style dungeon crawler made by the creators of Diablo (personal favorite) I DL'd the demo and it plays so close to Diablo 2 its scary! The game is a lot of fun and has some neat perks such as Random generated dungeons, random unique items and weapons and a WoW style character appearance that changes dependent on gear. So far the only flaw I found with this game is the lack of MP. If this game had a active MP then it would be a sure buy for a dungeon crawler fanatic such as myself.

Bastion

Bastion looks beautiful with hand painted landscapes and backgrounds, and i find the full time narration kinda cool, the downside is that is a WB game and play feels like a bad Loony Tunes mash-up. But according to XBLA it has been selling like mad.....I think I may need to dig deeper into the demo to see if its worth the points or not.

Get Torchlight over Bastion. Gameplay is crap for it.

I recommend Dust over torchlight though. It is coming out the 27th I believe. Looks awesome.

Dust does look good I will deff grab it when it comes out.



So gonna grab Torchlight when I get home, damn I just wish it had MP, the game would be amazing with MP. They say Torchlight 2 is in production so maybe it will contain a stable MP.

old world blues is a great addition to new vegas

*SPOILERS*(highlight)

you get to go back at anytime even after finishing it, the sink is possibly the greatest safe house of all time

*SPOILERS*

having a lvl 45 character is ridiculous, now i can go back to the first dlc and try it without being raped by poison gas

*Spoilers Highlight*

Yes, as soon as I can travel at will I will be moving all my gear to The Sink, with all its glories! Personal auto-doc, tonnes of storage, comfy bed, talking toaster.....wait what....You also get real Stealth Armor again!!!! The even make you go through a mini spec-ops training to activate it!

************************************************

And there is nothing wrong with lvl 45 Drag lol I am having a hard time reaching it....only at like 38 now I think. Lonesome Road is supposed to release mid-late august and is going to be the so called final DLC for NV reaching the ever sought after 50 lvl cap along with bad ass perks I hope. and Dead Money is not *that* tough.....you just gotta be a little sneakier then you normally would for a Fallout game.

Well, I've just got a PS2 emulator working and now I'm off to download a shit ton of games.
Not only does it play them, I'm able to bump up the res to 1080p and the AA so there's no jagies at all. Looks a million times better than they originally looked.

You're speaking my kind of language.
I saw there's a Tales game on the PS2 as well, very similar to Vesperia.
I wish there was more JRPGs this gen. You couldn't get through the last few gens without bumping into a few classics. Now you have to search for average JRPGs if any.

The Wii actually has quite a few. and will run up to a PSX emulator pretty smoothly and installing the softmod for HackMii and Homebrew is fairly easy. Nintendo has strong roots in the RPG area. I recommended picking up a Wii, spending the evening it will take you to hack it then filling a large external HDD full of games! I know thats what I did lol!

Yeah with all the DLC patches and title updates its pretty stable now. Glitched out on me a few times but nothing serious. no more getting clipped on rocks or pushing to dashboard when it shits its self on a loading screen at least.....

Since we are on the talk of emulators. What is a good pc controller for them? I got RE 1 and Silent Hill, but hard to play with keyboard.

Finished New Vegas when I rented from Gamefly with a lvl 30 character, but I'm waiting out until a GOTY edition instead of buying it on games on demand with individual dlcs

Your a better man then me..... There is no way I could wait. Dead Money was good, but hard. Even at lvl 30. Honest Hearts had a good background story line but was short and very linear. So far, Old World Blues is great! Very open concept, good story and great NPC's although at a high level the combat is pretty easy.

GOTY should be released late fall or early winter I would assume. The current final DLC for Vegas is Lonesome Roads slated for a late Aug release although it wont open up continued game play like Broken Steel did for F3 it will apparently hit 50 for the lvl cap, addition of badass perks and finally finish the courier story.

Picked up from dust today.

Its pretty fun, good game. Although its not as good as I expected it too be, gets kinda repetitive and boring. The cutscenes in-between missions are pretty much the same too :/
