It has a fully modern graphics. I run it at 1920 x 1080 resolution, and everything is fully 3d. However, that said you cannot zoom in very close to your characters to really see them well. Here are a few pics of the game from my vid/pic topic.

I got inspired a few nights ago, and rolled a new team of toons - Team TES

Teresa calms the savage beasts

Aela vs. Raider

Aela's technomancy makes short work of the thug

The final member of Team TES of the Desert Rangers is none other than Tadrose Helas, the team weaponsmith and door-kicker-in

Teresa has discovered the Secret of NIMH

So you really don't see your characters that well. But you do see everything from afar, and have a good look at everything around them. Which is good since it is mainly a tactics-based game.



Teresa! Aela! Even Tadrose! How did I miss this? I can barely see Teresa's picture, only her red hair and pale skin - but Aela and Tadrose look awesome!

I just love how it says

Smart Ass

Kick Ass

I liked that too, but wasn't the last one "Kiss Ass?"

biggrin.gif Kick Ass is what you do when persuasion doesn't work!

Oh this is most excellent! I believe I played the original Wasteland back in my Apple IIe days. If it is the one I recall, there were ranks like "Sergeant Argent". Yep- just looked up the sleeve art- and that was it!

It was one that kept me going for a very long time, along with the original Bard's Tale and the "gold box" D&D games... In fact, I think it grabbed me even more so than the D&D games, because it tended to "move" more rapidly and had less "grinding".

Thank you for the review- this is going on my wish list.

Wasteland 2 is definitely well worth the money. Keep an eye for it on Gog.com. They have regular sales.

I am back in the Arizona Wasteland with Persephone and her all girl crew of Serana, and grown-up Lucia and Sofie. This time I am going with Serana as a sniper, and the other three with assault rifles. Though I might change Lucia over to energy weapons. Really though, the Assault Rifle is what rules this game.

Because of the problem of too many skills and not enough points to spread around them, this time I when I created Team Deadwalker I used the save game editor to give them each 50 skill points to spread around, and 1 extra attribute point. Basically I gave them 5 skills at 5 points each, on average. It seems to be working out well so far. They can open all the locks they come by, and survive the fights.

One tip/trick I learned is not to bother putting too many points in Safecracking. Instead just carry around a lot of dynamite or pipebombs. They do the least damage of all explosives, but they always open every safe, and it does not destroy the contents. Just aim for the door of the safe. You will see it outlined in green when you have it targeted. OTOH, dynamite does destroy the loot inside chests, so don't blow them up. Instead invest your points in Lockpicking.



Persephone is now leading a team of Arizona Rangers

She has teamed up with her BFF Serana

Lucia sets her sights on a Wrecker

Sofie has some good [censored] (ammonia nitrate to be more exact)

Lucia is handy with grenades

Those are the three persuasion skills. It shows you the rank the selected character has in each. Persephone is my Hard Ass. Serana is the Smart Ass, and Sofie the Kiss Ass.

I would have a lot of trouble seeing the characters in combat on this one, but it looks fun and funny! Plus I like that you can bring in so many of your characters - and what an Awesome job you did on Serana, it looks just like her!

That is Serana. I created the character pictures from my Skyrim screenshots.


For those interested in it, Wasteland 2 is on sale for $16 on Gog. But only for the next 8 hours or so. So now is the time to buy.

Oh, you mean in character creation you can just use a screenshot of a character from another game? That is very cool!

Yay for Persephone and Team Tamriel in the desert! What better BFF for Persephone than fellow dead girl Serana? And the grown up kids for some extra kick. Seems like a great team. Thanks for these great shots from the wastelands. goodjob.gif

Yes. You can use any picture. It just has to be 256 x 256 in size, and in the .png format.

Oh, how cool is that! I wish we could create Facegen off photos for our Elder Scrolls characters, lol. Actually, we could in Oblivion. I had a Facegen program that did that for Oblivion made by Singular Inversions; and made a character of my friend Phil, but couldn't get the "SI" imprint out of his forehead without paying for the full version of the software, lol.

I knew some other people who had that program, and the SI in their foreheads! laugh.gif


A Discobot has Sofie in its sights (the Discobot effect makes it easier for you to be hit)

Slicer-Dicers, among the worst of the robots you will fight in this game, sort of like Deathclaws in Fallout

A Slicer-Dicer beam in action.

Persephone responds with a rocket launcher

Boom!

Follow that tortoise

For a brief time Team Deadwalker had these three extra followers: The Provost, Vax (the robot), and The Secret of Nimh (the rat)

Persephone's boot...


I have some notes that might help others with a few of the major quests:

Dealing with Danforth and the Red Skorpion Militia at the Prison:


How to end the Rail Nomad conflict peacefully:

Yikes, looks like Team Tamriel was besieged by mutant kitchen gadgets and food processors! biggrin.gif

Finally, Persephone brings out the rocket launcher to sort things out.

Serves those folks right. If they want goop collectors, they should have called Ghostbusters, not Team Deadwalker. wink.gif

I really like the exterior shots; the lower four screens - really looks like a wasteland I'd want to explore, lol. Those "Slicer Dicer's" look scary, especially attacking in a group that way and that big red circle! Whatever the heck went on there looked painful!

These are great shots, I know I couldn't play it because of all the reading, but I love seeing you cover games I've never seen or heard of before!


That SI - laugh.gif Yeah, the paid version of SI was really high; and just to mod a game I couldn't see paying that - a lot of people couldn't.

I think the guy who did those celebrity NPC Followers did pay for the full version; he is the one that got me to download the free version. It did an amazing job, but for the SI in the forehead, lol.
