Welcome to my rants on the world created for Bethesda’s video game franchise… blah blah blah blahhhhh.

Hey, I looked, and I do like the site! Currently playing New Vegas for the first time, after a lot of Fallout 3, 2, 1 and Tactics. I will be checking here every once in a while, for both the strategy section and the creative writings. Keep on writing the good stuff!

Thanks for the encouraging feedback :-j
Yeah… on the surface (especially when you first start playing) New Vegas feels like just a lot more of the same. But once you start getting into it, you’ll find a host of new options and game mechanics that really add more depth to the Fallout experience.

Oh, forgot to mention it earlier, but are you aware of the tons of wonderful MODs available for both Fallout 3 and New Vegas? I currently use a very thorough, immersive and non-game breaking mod list made by Wulf. It really spices up New Vegas and fixes a whole lot of those nasty bugs. See the below link:

Unfortunately, I play the 360 versions of these games… so no MODs for me 😦

😦 A shame indeed, but then again, what one doens’t know, one doesn’t miss 😉

Here’s the final word on 360 modding: http://falloutmods.wikia.com/wiki/Fallout_3_modding_FAQ
So what I was able to sort of surmise for myself was basically true. The fancy “G.E.C.K. mods” can only be applied through .ini files, and therefore you would need a system granting full access (either a PC or a Jtagged Xbox). Otherwise, it’s easy to mod save files from the 360 (just requires a flash drive and a couple shareware programs), but these mods are very simple and only tweak things like stats and the amount of caps you’re carrying.
Olero… mind if I ask what kind of PC set-up you’re running? My computer is a couple years old, so I would probably have to upgrade in order to run New Vegas without the shitty hiccups invariable to PC gaming.

Missed the question in your reply, but I run a system that does the shitty hiccups once in a while, especially when the game gets a little bit crowded. But then again, my PC is from somewhere between 2005 and 2006, with a videocard that’s just a little better (GT 8800, 512 MB). So I really can’t give you good advice to run New Vegas smoothly. Which is a hard thing to manage, even with new computers or so I heard.
My theory is that New Vegas requires a lot of CPU, and depends less of your video-card. But you’ll have to dive into some tech forum to see if I’m right about that 😉

Hi falloutfeeling man,
I ran across a nice blog today, writing a good deal about New Vegas. Hope you like it too:
P.S. I hope you didn’t stop writing, that would be a shame. I really enjoy reading all your Bombshells chapters, very well written!

You weren’t kidding… I just added her to my blogroll. Damn sexy stuff ;-j
Anyway, good to hear from you! Yeah, I’ve been a bit uninspired of late since my 360 Elite got the red rings of death about a week ago. Oh well… the system would have been four years old in July, so I guess it was a pretty good run. Glad you’re digging Bombshells… the next chapter is about half done, so I think I’ll wait and post the whole chapter when it’s finished.
