Fallout platform

As much as we hate to admit it, we don't all play MMO's 24/7...

Fallout platform

Post by Kashak » 21 Oct 2010, 08:20

A lot of fallout reviews are mentioning huge load times. I can confirm that this is not the case on a PC with normal hard drives and 4GB of RAM.

So if you have the luxury of choice I'd say go PC if you got the grunt to run it.

Oh and if you play hardcore mode. Save often as your companion AI is still pretty dumb and they die permanently.

If you want to play with companions turn off hardcore mode. The AI is terrible and will cause you frustration++ as they run away and die (mainly in dungeon crawls). Hardcore is fine if your alone and don't mind keeping an eye on your weight limit.

I've gotten to Vegas and turned off hardcore and I'm having much more fun than the 'leg it to vegas' first part.

don't pirate it benks that is illegal man.

I think they shouldn't call it hardcore, i mean, you can play on easy difficulty with hardcore mode turned on and it's not hard ><...

who's going to do a very hard + hardcore mode run through?

also, where do you find lead for making ammo? Is it only from breaking down ammo?

Scrap metal. 1 breaks down to 1000 lead. Not sure if you need reloading table or workbench to do it but Ive done it.

Found my first sniper rifle and bought a silencer. Silenced sniping feels like cheating :p
