Spoiler:

In a few days, all going well, I'm starting a Fallout Tactics LP.

The OP will have the chapter list, cast, or anything else useful for reference.

Oh, and as a friendly warning, this is Fallout. Which means language, gore, cannibalism, incest, all the nastiness of a post apocalyptic wasteland comes around from time to time. If that's an issue, best to duck out now.

For the rest of you, I hope not to disappoint.

    Alright, I'm looking forward to this!

    I remember there was one years ago here that was awesome and never got finished. Hope this one gets to the end.

    Are you planning an out-of-character pure tactical effort, a comedy, or something approaching a narrative?

    Aw man I remember this game. Playing it just made me want to play other tactical games, so I was never able to finish it. Good luck on the LP!

    Here, I found the old thread. Still one of my favorite Let's Plays of all time even unfinished. Still a good read. 5/5

    I weep that the previous LP for FT was never finished. How are you thinking of going about this one, chiasaur11? Telling a story or more a screen-shot play by play?

    In response to the questions, narrative.

    And yes. Themocaw's unfinished LP is excellent.

    Most excellent, consider this thread bookmarked :)

    I quite enjoy this game, despite the gameplay divergence from the first two. Mostly I like the exploits of the non-jerkass wing of the Brotherhood of Steel.

    The MP in this game was amazing, when it worked.

    There was nothing quite like rolling around with like six dudes in power armor, storming buildings, or just blowing the living hell out of them when it suited your fancy.

    Of course, most people did lame low equipment, one man servers. Which almost always sucked or favored bullshit tricks, like a sniper/drug setup.

    I love many things about this game, but I wish you good luck with your game.

    Mostly because I remember this game to be pretty damn slow. Like 'oh no something is on the other side of the map which means I have to walk over' slow. And then that person gets killed in hilarious unpredictable fashion.

    Oh man, narrative LP? FUCK YES. You have my attention and my full support. Seeing as I lack the game myself, have no art skills and minimal writing ability that doesn't mean much, but dammit man I'm eager to see this happen.

    I always enjoyed Fallout Tactics, and despite the whining of the hardcore, I thought the story was quite good as well.

    Going to be honest.

    As great as that would be for everyone, it would be incredibly awkward for me.

    To put it in geek, it would be like when Barry Allen came back, and I'd be Wally.

    If Barry was interesting, and made more jokes about murder, rape, and drug addiction, I mean.

    The one man servers were awesome until the bullshit builds showed up. Playing the mp demo was a great time, CTF in fallout. :)

    Why are the LP thread people so miserly about linking to unfinished LPs anyway?

    Adds a further layer of incentive and a sense of accomplishment when a LP is wrapped up, I suppose. I think it'll be a long time before someone forgets Thermocaw's unfinished LP and won't be able to link it at request, anyway.

    I would go with RAGE and Xan.

    Xan looks genuienly usefull (looks alot like my build in Fallout 1 TBH) while RAEG is there for the hilarity factor and ID software producing a game allll about him.

    Also check your PMs

    Edit: On seccond look, Definetly RAGE. 99% Gun skill? *I* personally would go with Xan too, but definetly pick RAGE

    RAGE, yes. I would also suggest a lady medic to work towards "Milo and RAGE fight evil with their harem", and possibly Jo, since her profile mentions a Rage Incident. Avoid ice, she won't play the harem game.

  • LanrutconLanrutcon Registered User regular
    Suggesting you grab someone with big guns or energy to add some variation to the gunplay :P Brian seems solid. Rage would probably result in more hilarity though.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'm just lazy though. I'll probably tear the house apart looking for it when I've got some time off.
