New Minion (1/20)



  1. The argument is not that it's bad because it's an FPS (I actually really enjoy it that way), it's that there are many systems within the game that are bad. Karma, terrible Perks, Quest Markers, Morality/Morality of NPCs, etc are what make the game sub-par. To be honest, I actually really liked Fallout 3, but it would have been 100 times better if those things and a few others were fixed.
  2. As a huge fan of both the original Fallouts (1,2, and yes, even Tactics) and the Bethesda ones, I always felt like the Bethesda games were missing some of the main points/nuances of the Fallout series, although Fallout: New Vegas did bring some back. Anyway, I found this INSANELY long video (you thought that Gopher made long videos) all about what Bethesda didn't do right when making specifically Fallout 3, and what they could have learned from the first 2 to make it better. This was like a light switch turned on for me after watching/listening to the entire thing. I knew that I enjoyed Fallout 3, but there was something always a bit off, or it felt like I was just missing something that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Most of the points that are made in this video I wholeheartedly agree with, even though I think that I enjoyed Fallout 3 a lot more than this guy did. For context, I played Fallout 2 for the first time about 2 1/2 years ago, and fell in love with it. Then a few months later I played Fallout 3, then Fallout: New Vegas. Even after beating New Vegas twice in a row, I still felt the need to come back to Fallout 2 and complete it a second time (a few months later I also played F1). There was just something about the originals that Bethesda just couldn't capture, and may never will. Anyway, TL:DR: If you like both the Interplay(RIP) and the Bethesda Fallouts, I highly recommend watching this video: Any and all discussion is welcome PS: I couldn't find any rules about embedding or linking videos, so I hope I don't get in trouble
  3. Thanks for the replies, for now I'm going to use NMM I think, as I used MO for F:NV, and I haven't used NMM in a year (it didn't have profiles). What are some good mods to start out with before I go off the deep end? P.S. I installed SKSE and SkyUI, and for some reason Skyrim is running really slowly, and freezes/stutters a lot. Any fixes?
  4. Quick question, for starting out modding Skyrim, which mod manager should I use? I've had a moderate amount of experience with both. I used MO for Fallout: New Vegas recently, as I heard it was better for that game.
  5. If you look at the trailers/gameplay, you'll see that it's most likely to be quite different, esp. with city building and development. However some other aspects (that they probably didn't put in trailers for this reason) will probably be close to the same.
  6. I really liked Civ 5 but after 100 hours I simply lost interest. Looking forward to Civ 6 though, even if I don't like the comicy graphics. Civ games seem more like "dad" games to me, but maybe that's just my dad, who has between 900-1000 hours into Civ 5, and is currently trying to win with every single civ on Emperor. I still like Civ, and I'll definitely be playing Civ 6.
  7. After long nights of struggling with mods, and some reinstalls (including a full wipe of both mod data and base F:NV), I've finally installed about 3/4 of the mods that Gopher currently uses, as well as a few I added for personal preference. I just used MO, and many of Gopher's extremely outdated MO and UI mod tutorials (That sometimes led me astray). I'm trying to make a character based on a mix of Jack and John Cassidy from Fallout 2. TL;DR: Success!
  8. I would absolutely love see Gopher do a let's play of Fallout 2. In my humble opinion, the greatest game of all time. And yes, it does hold up, as I played it for the first time back in 2013, and have played it twice since then (full run-throughs). For Gopher, it might be like a combination of his XCom let's plays and Jack's F:NV adventures. PS: The Fallout 2 Nexus page is extremely sad, but the Restoration Project is really the only you need I hear (I've never actually used it).
  9. Fixed the problem, don't know how to delete posts
  10. Thanks for the replies; I think I will be using Mod Organizer this time. I've only ever used NMM and it didn't go too well, as I was constantly having to manually download things instead of through the nexus downloads, and I wasn't good at some of the manual installs at the time.
  11. To clarify, this isn't a brand new computer, but I haven't played F:NV in 8 months or so, which was before I got this computer. Specs: Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti RAM: 16 GB OS: Microsoft Windows 10 (build 10586), 64-bit
  12. Hey Gopher's Minions! I just signed up for the forums after watching Gopher's channel for about a year or so now. I decided to go back to Fallout: New Vegas and play it with some mods, but I've never really had very many successful experiences with modding, but I'm willing to give it a shot for my next playthrough. I really enjoy(ed) Gopher's Jack playthrough, and I've decided on the daunting task of installing all of the mods (or most) that Gopher used in that playthrough. I currently do not have any mods installed (new computer), and I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on where to start, and what manager I should use. Thanks!
