it's funny that a character who can't talk and didn't exist in the main game of new vegas was way way more interesting, had more depth, and was more ingrained in the world via Veronica and the Brotherhood than any of the Fallout 3 or especially 4 characters

I enjoyed Lonesome Road as a kind of epilogue/wrap-up to the rest of the game (even if it takes place technically before the Battle of Hoover Dam) but Old World Blues was probably my favorite.

That said, I absolutely loved the heist atmosphere of Dead Money, and Dean Domino is a pretty amazing character. Honest Hearts is probably the weakest addon but it is still incredibly good.

Dead Money = Old World Blues > Honest Hearts > Lonesome Road, for me. I really liked the concept of Lonesome Road but I never liked the way it came together. Dead Money is one of the most cohesive, contained Fallout stories and I adore it.

But I also unironically like Skyrim and Fallout 3, so I am casual Bethsoft scum.

One of my favorite things about Dean Domino is that when you first meet him, it's possible to manipulate him via charisma/intelligence into doing something for you. For a character like Dean, doing this is a MASSIVE blow to his ego, and even though he will hang out with you and be your buddy, he will spend the entire time plotting revenge/looking for an opportunity to betray you.

If you fail to manipulate him/let him get one over on you at that first encounter, he will still hang out with you/be your buddy, but now when it comes to a pivotal point he will come to your rescue/help you out.... simply because he likes you and thinks you are a pretty cool dude

Edit: It would drive people mad, but I really liked that Obsidian did that, and kinda wish they'd more often make it that passing a skill check doesn't always give you optimal results regardless of context.

The amount of ways to get poo poo done makes it astounding they knocked the base game out in a bit more than a year. Obviously they just kept throwing poo poo in until the deadline rather than fixing bugs but hey, the crashes are part of the charm

Ropekid also did an unofficial patch after Lonesome Road came out and all official updates on the game had ended. The level of work put into the game was just incredible and it endlessly irritates me Obsidian had a reputation for years as making buggy games when Bethesda were the ones responsible for bugchecking but didn't do any for the entire length of time they had between the development being finished and the release. Which coincidentally meant the game fell JUST short of the review score average it needed to guarantee a bonus to Obsidian.

I hope The Outer Worlds is a gigantic success.

after being thoroughly disappointed in what Fallout4 could have been I have zero plans on revisiting any further Fallout games.

I was hoping the settlement mechanics would be more fleshed out and the Brotherhood of Steel stuff didn't feel like it was forced in because Fallout has BoS so we gotta have BoS in 4.

Getting to build your own murder robot was cool but I wish it wasn't at the expense of having a chatty companion along for the ride.

review score is guaranteed to gently caress obsidian over because the game really won’t seem that special (like most of their games tbf) if you try to sprint to the credits rolling so you can get your article printed

Well....as of five minutes ago. I finished my last final. As of today I'm officially a college graduate, associate degree in digital forensics, it's taken me so long to even finish from starts and stops. I don't know where to go to next.

I've been so used to just working in whatever job I could get and chip away at the program. I'm honestly kinda scared to figure out what's next. I'm freakin 36. I don't know what I'm even capable of doing. I'm not walking, the ceremony is going to be held on a hockey rink and I don't want to sit on ice freezing, plus self loathing on taking so long to get a degree.

I have no idea where I'm going with this, either venting or whatever. Either way, I'm just kinda dumbfounded that I managed to make it to my goal. What do you think thread?

First off: Congrats friend, I'm proud of you.

It's always scary to not know what's next, especially when you've pursued something for so long. Whatever it is you do pursue next, I do believe you'll succeed in that too. Just try not to let the uncertainty of that overcome your joy at accomplishing this, because what you've done today is absolutely still impressive, no matter how long it took

It does have like 100 stages though, there's bound to be some clunkers.

I thought I was being hard on the stage selection because I banned something like 11 stages right away, but competitive scene has already allowed less stages than I've banned.

Congrats!

Next up get your resume together, eyeball some decent jobs, expect them to reject you but keep at it until something breaks.

Oh and never hate yourself for bettering yourself. Even if you think world doesn’t appreciate it, you still put in more effort and have tons better chances than they’ll ever admit.

Thank you kind goons of PSP Wrestlehut2K .

Resume has been tweaked and messed with for some time now, hard part is convincing somewhere that even though I've got a professional lifetime of experience in retail/service/data entry I'd be a fit to work in a lab to root out evidence and such to be used in a court of law, OR go back and finish out a Cyber security associates in the Spring while I job hunt and get more certs and pony up on the live side of preventative measures too.
