Okay, so maybe I shouldn't quote a Poison song in the title... wink.gif

Since everyone is doing it, I thought I'd post a few vids myself.

This first one was reduced to 640 x 480, as trying to upload it at the original resolution would have taken over 3 hours. This is my current Fallout 3 character Tomoe Gozen. She wears the samurai armor from the Mothership Zeta dlc, and uses the katana from there as well.

Tomoe at Hank's Electrical Supply

Tomoe also found a very fun trap next door:

Tomoe at Gold Ribbon Grocer


I also have an old one I thought I would put up. This video was not created by myself, but rather someone else, who sent it to me and gave me permission to post it. It is from the game Rome Total War, and the mod used in the video is all my work: Amazon Total War. It gives a look at just a small slice of what ATW has to offer, showing a battle between the factions of Amazonia and the Greek Cities.

Amazonia vs. The Greeks

You desecrated Vault Boy!!! Shame upon you! nono.gif nono.gif nono.gif

Seriously, though, I did like the Manga replacement you got for him. Makes a lot more sense with your character.

That second vid had a very impressive Rube Goldberg set up in it, I have to say. cool.gif

I'd surely get back into Fallout 3 if I wasn't so busy with Oblivion at this point. I'm sure you know that it's been modded to almost the same degree as Oblivion on my PC (though unlike Oblivion, it doesn't take as much modding to get what I want out of the game). That includes my usual faster, more brutal combat (courtesy of Fallout Wanderer's Edition), as well. I've never been able to stomach how long combat takes in vanilla Beth games, I like my combat to be quick, dirty, and unforgiving.

Impressive mods for Fallout. Like TK I'm busy with Oblivion, but that does make me think I should buy Fallout for the PC.

I've never played Rome Total War, but I really liked Medieval II Total War.

GAAAH! It's the Super-Duper Mart !! No, it's Hank's Electrical Supply ?? I've been to the Jury Street area, how did I miss this? Maybe I did see it, it has been years since I played. I loved that Samurai armor, helmet, and sword !!!

The Gold Ribbon Grocer? How did I miss that? Oh wait, I couldn't get into it ... although I didn't think of climbing on the roof, lol. AWESOME explosion !!!! WOO HOO !!!

I see me pulling my game back out and playing to Jury Street again, lol. Jury Street Deathclaws and mutants, here I come !!! Lol. Great vids !!


You did an amazing job on the ATW !!! I liked that in the middle of battle you could hear horses whinnying and see spears that missed their target landing in the water beside the bridge. I liked the Amazon's charge at the finale too !!! Great mod, SubRosa !!!

Thomas Kaira: I could not wait to desecrate Vault Boy! I never could stand him.


King Coin: I played RTW for years, created a major conversion mod for it, and was even a mod at a RTW site for a while. But eventually got burned out on it. I never could get into MTW2, the era just does nothing for me.


mALX: You can just walk in the front door of Gold Ribbon Grocer. It is set off a little from the Dot's Diner where the Xaunlong Assault Rifle is, and the metro station. A very neat place!


Acadian: Welcome to the Capital Wasteland!

Today Tomoe went poking around the ruins of Old Olney. After taking out two deathclaws at the western edge of town, I decided to make some videos as she explored. I originally put them all together into one single file, but found that the quality got seriously degraded. So instead I uploaded each part separately. I left out the boring stuff of looking through crates, and unfortunately missed a couple of surprise! Its a deathclaw behind that door moments. But most of the action was faithfully recorded.

Part 1 - Tomoe comes to Old Olney

Part 2 - Tomoe gets her first good look at a deathclaw

Part 3 - Tomoe ventures into the heart of the city

Part 4 - Deathclaws go flyyyinn so hiigh

Part 5 - Tomoe goes underground

Part 6 - Tomoe has a close encounter in the hallway

Part 7 - Tomoe learns they are called Deathclaws for a reason

Part 8 - Tomoe reloads and strikes back!

Part 9 - The End

M2TW was great for me because I really liked the factions. I always played as the Germans because they had some seriously strong heavy infantry.

Part 1- .44 Mag FTW my favorite gun in the game. Such a satisfying BAM.

Part3- casual headshot NICE
Part4- wtflol

This was the greatest vid EVER !!!


@ Previous vids:


WOO HOO !!! I love Old Olney ... and Blackhawk too !!! Somehow I always end up killing myself with the Fat Man though, my aim is off and I nuke the ground under me instead of where I am aiming. Great Vid !!!

How are you getting those C-4's to work? They never would work for me !!


ROFL !!! The flying Deathclaw glitch !!


Holy Cow! You blew that Fat Man in a tunnel and didn't hit yourself once !! Awesome to see it used in someone's hands that can aim it right !!


I am loving these vids, you are making me homesick for Fallout 3 !!! And I may have to get it for the PC too, I only have it on the 360 right now. Awesome vids !!!

The Fat Man is not that hard. V.A.T.S. works at short range. At long range you have freehand it, because it always falls to short in V.A.T.S. You just have to watch that nothing jumps in your face while you are shooting! ohmy.gif

C-4's? You mean Bottlecap Mines? They are simple, same as any other mine. The trick is to make sure to keep them between you are whatever is charging at you, so they run right over it.



Next, Tomoe Gozen finishes up the main quest of FO3. That is right, Liberty Prime walks the earth! One of the coolest American robots ever!

Yeah, I saw the big mutant behind her and went, "GAAAAH!" before I realized it was Fawkes, lol. When she went around the corner toward the bridge to the Jeff Mem - did it not look to you like she got squished by Liberty Prime? It did to me ... twice !!!

Yeah, I screamed like a banshee when Tomoe was shooting at one Deathclaw and then turned around and the other was in her face, lol.

I laid down a raft of those Bottlecap mines around the bridge at Big Town to blow up the Super Mutants that were coming to attack - and they walked right over them and wiped out the town !! I had to reload a save and tried the robots the second time.

King Coin: I didn't want to just do nothing. I had to at least try to shoot someone! Granted, it is fun to just watch Liberty Prime do his thing! biggrin.gif I usually do not travel with any companions. They always get in the way. But I picked up Fawkes after Raven Rock (as usual), and it just felt natural to bring him for the assault.


mALX: If you listen very carefully you can hear Fawkes at the very beginning of the attack saying "There is reason to be cautious." Which is hilarious under the circumstances. No kidding Old Yeller? What gave you that idea?


Thomas Kaira: I just love listening to Liberty Prime. "Democracy is truth! Communism is Death!" biggrin.gif You can tell the devs had a lot of fun writing his lines!


Next, the rest of the tale.

Part 2 - Tomoe and company take the Jefferson Memorial

Part 3 - Destiny awaits.
mALX
The "Good Karma" ending !! I love the ending of the main quest in Fallout 3, both Raven Rock's implosion and following Liberty Prime to the Jeff Mem - especially on the 360 for those two scenes.

Playing on the 360, where the controller responds to environmental explosions - I had trouble even holding the controller it was vibrating and jumping in my hands almost continuously through both of these scenes in the main questline! I don't know when I've been more excited in any vid game then following Liberty Prime !!

I think for scenes like these it might be preferable to play the game on the 360 for the interactive controller that really brings the scene to life as you feel every explosion and every second of the bumping of your allies as you crowd across that bridge and down under the tunnel.

(haven't gotten to the end battle of New Vegas yet, the game keeps fatally crashing - but I imagine it will be another epic fight with the controller)


These vids of yours are AWESOME !!!
King Coin
When I first played Fallout 3 I really did not like the ending, mostly because I wasn't expecting it. Now I think it's great to have an end game scripted in like that.

Well that's simply it. Bethesda had to rush the ending because they ran out of development time. That's why Broken Steel came along, because of how sudden the ending to the game really was.
SubRosa
mALX: I always play good characters. While I don't mind murdering the occasional s.o.b. who has it coming - like Dr. Lesko or Anna Holt - I just cannot bring myself to do the really heinous stuff you need to in order to get bad karma, like blowing up megaton or enslaving people.

I love the FO3 ending too. Liberty Prime is just fantastic. He is the classic Golden Age Sci Fi robot, so cool to look at. Those eyebeams of his make a really cool sound, and the whole idea of a giant robot throwing nuclear bombs is just so insane that it works! Watching him tear up the DC ruins is just tons of fun.


King Coin: A lot of people seemed to complain about Martin being the hero in Oblivion and the player character feeling like a sidekick. So I think they had the player be the one to make the ultimate sacrifice in FO3. Of course that makes the rest of the game kind of hard to play after finishing the main quest... wink.gif But they fixed that with Broken Steel of course. It seems kind of silly to die in the Purifier when you have Fawkes right there, immune to radiation like all super mutants are. But that is Bethesda for you.


Thomas Kaira: So that is why the MQ is so quick? It does go by rather quick. Although it still does seem longer than the MQ of Fallout 1 (which I just got a few days ago). I am not surprised. Publishers always seem to rush devs to release games before their time. Like with KOTOR 2. None of them seem to realize that the better your product, the more of it you will sell.


Next, something rather different. I started a new FO3 character, and plan to do the Pitt with her soon. But for the moment she is still in the Capital Wasteland, scouting for food and chems. Yep, that's right, The Super Duper Mart! She ran into a trio of Talon Company scuzzballs outside, which accounts for her armor. I missed the first minute or so in the mart, then started the camera rolling after I hacked the robot's computer terminal.

Boudica at the Super Duper Mart
King Coin
You take some odd items. Like the Vodka bottle? And the .32 pistols and Chinese pistols? I never take those. Did you leave the 5.56 ammo behind?

I prefer the game end with your death rather than continuing with Broken Steel. I simply don't do the main quest until my character has explored everything and has done everything that I want to.
Thomas Kaira
Well, it seems the logical explanation. Every last bit of the main quest up to that point was very well connected and thought out, but then the ending just comes and hits you like a freight truck. It's that fast, and is at huge odds with the pacing of the rest of the game. When the final quest come around, it's just a huge spike in the tension-o-meter. I, myself, thought there was room for at least one more segment between Raven Rock blowing up and the assault on Project Purity.

You know what could have happened? The Enclave could have assaulted the Citadel in retaliation for the loss of Raven Rock, and you, the player would be tasked with making your way through the facility under siege to find and activate Liberty Prime. From there, you would drive the Enclave out of the Citadel with the help of everyone's favorite communist-bustin' robot, and then the final assault would begin. Much better transition, and we get more Liberty Prime action in the bargain. wink.gif

What we got in the actual game, to me, has "oh, crap, we gotta finish this NOW" written all over it. It felt like Bethesda was having so much fun developing everything else, the release date just snuck up on them, and they just cobbled together a quick ending just so the main quest ended with you achieving something. They were simply too focused on the world around the main quest, and forgot about the actual journey.
mALX
Even though I love Oblivion more than FO3 - I still have to say that I have never found another scene so incredibly exciting in any vid game ever - then following Liberty Prime to that Jeff Mem building. That was the ulitimate experience ever !!

Slave collars:

I thought I could make a fortune enslaving the people that attacked me first - imagine my surprise when I got bad karma for that !!! So other than a few times of using that mez for making people empty their pockets - I never used it.

That guy in Rivet City that sells the guns is one of my fave characters and merchant in the game, I wouldn't have been able to make myself attack him with that slave collar anyway.

I was surprised Anna Holt gave bad karma since she defected to the Enclave, had to reload the save from coming up to that floor and re-do a bunch of sneaking, lol.

Lesko - even though I was dying for his coat, I didn't kill him. He was nice to my character, and I wanted to earn caps selling him fire ant nectar. As it turned out, he glitched and wouldnt' deal with my character so I was unable to get rich. I found out when I was stuck with a bunch of it - that stuff is great fire protection.

I prefer playing the good karma character too, but wanted all the available achievement points on the 360. You don't really have to continue your evil ways to stay a bad karma character - just don't do anything good once you get across that line.

My favorite outfit is Vance's long coat and the Vampire's Edge sword - cleaning out that vampire nest in the train station gives bad karma for the attack on each person and anything you take. Take everything and drop it on the floor in a large area.

If I accidentally got into neutral or good karma - I'd just go pick up those items, then drop them again. Couldn't bring myself to make a lot of the horrible choices that keeping bad karma entailed, lol.

I'm going to watch the vid in the morning so I don't wake the whole house, lol. I'll comment then.
SubRosa
King Coin: Vodka is liquid caps! It is worth 20 caps, and only weighs 1 lb. I always look at the value/weight ratio when I decide what I pick up. I never bother with conductors, irons, etc... because they weigh too much. I take the little pistols because they are common, so I can pick up a lot of them. Then I combine them all into one by repairing them, and I can easily get 80 or 90 caps for it. That is great for something that weighs only 2 lbs.


Thomas Kaira: I can imagine some other quests that could happen earlier in the MQ as well. There could be a fetch and carry mission to someplace like RobCo to get special parts they need for the mainframe. Then later perhaps a mission to Vault Tec Hq to find out where to get a Geck. Then maybe the Geck is missing from Vault 87, and you find a note saying the super mutants took it to DC, or Germantown, etc... Then you have to race the Enclave to get to it first.


mALX: You can get Lesko's coat without killing him. Just demand more compensation when you talk to him, and he will sweeten the deal by throwing it in with the ant mutation. I had no idea you could sell him the fire ant nectar though!

Bethesda really had their heads up their collective rears when they decided a lot of the karma gain/losses. Like killing Evan King. He murders his parents to drink their blood, but killing him is evil? Or finding a peaceful solution to the ghouls getting into Tenpenny Tower gives you good karma, even though the ghouls murder everyone inside? Yet leading the ghouls in an attack through the basement to slaughter everyone gives you bad karma? I want to knock on the devs heads and ask if anyone is home in there.

I never really thought about just picking things up that are owned and dropping them to keep my karma down. I think it might be easier just to mod the karma system though, to change the amount you get, or the thresholds needed at either end of the spectrum. The game makes is way too easy to be in the good karma, imho. I can see how you get bad karma for nuking megaton. But you really should not get much, if any good karma for disarming the bomb. You are being paid for it after all. It is just a business deal. A pretty simple one too since you only need a 25 in Repair (or less if you use Mentats before trying), and you get a free house. Besides, like Moira says, that bomb never hurt anyone anyway.

You get so much good karma easily that I stopped worrying about the bad karma for killing people like Evan King or Anna Holt will get me. I can make it up just by giving someone purified water if I want to. In that game with Tomoe I killed both, and was still in the sainted territory. I probably would have had to nuke megaton just to get down to neutral.
mALX
Agree 100% on some of the karma decisions Bethesda made - especially on Tenpenny Tower. That quest just flat made me mad the way the karma was worked. I had cleared out the ghouls, then heard Three Dog on the radio "That evil Wanderer slaughtered those poor ghouls, they're people too..." . So I reloaded an old save and redid the quest, going with the peaceful solution - the ghouls killed everyone, and here comes Three Dog on the radio "That evil Wanderer slaughtered all those nice people..." - he blamed the player for what the ghouls did !!!

I was so ticked off I felt like getting the ghoul mask and then slaughtering them all, ghoul and human, lol. I reloaded that old save and never did that quest then or in future games.

The Megaton home was preferable to me anyway, or using free homes.


Without being able to mod the 360 game, I had to come up with ways I could live with to lower karma at will. Raising is easy between the quests and releasing prisoners/purified water, etc. That chapel in the Rivet City is a great place to donate your way into good karma too, lol.

Fetch quests for the sake of extending the length of the main game is not something I generally support. Done badly, this can be seen as padding the length, which is a no-no in game design (and one Oblivion is shamefully guilty of). However, going to Vault-Tec HQ to find the location of a GECK is something that does make a lot of sense. Perhaps your dad never managed to figure out where to find one? It would also mean another trip into the city ruins (which you only really do once in the MQ).

The third one I have to say I disapprove of that one. That would be a truly pointless detour for the game to take, as it would accomplish absolutely nothing except to annoy the player. The main reason is because I can't see that happening at all, the Muties are too caught up looking for FEV and people to convert into them to care about some random briefcase laying around. Fawkes only cared because she kept her personality when she was turned.

However, on the opposite end of the spectrum, the reason the Vault-Tec idea would work is because of two things: reasonable plausibility, and it would serve as a learning experience for the player (particularly those who didn't have a chance to play the previous two Fallouts). That is a fetch quest that serves a purpose, as it sends the player to an interesting area that allows for the developers to build the atmosphere.

Madness! That weapon doesn't do 35 points too much damage, every other weapon in the game does 35 points too little damage! biggrin.gif

Of course, I like my combat to be quick, dirty, and unforgiving over taking two centuries to finish. It feels a lot more satisfying to win a fight really feeling like your life was on the line. That, and also allowing for the signature god-like feeling when you get to a super-high level and can simply cream those pesky raiders that once terrorized you before.

Spotting a patrol of Talon Company alway brings a smile to my face.

SubRosa
Thomas Kaira: Most of my gun battles last just a few seconds. That is quick and dirty enough for me!


King Coin: I do have the full-version of FRAPs, but as far as I can tell, the only difference between it and the shareware version is that it allows you to save your screenshots as .jpgs. But it compresses them so much that the quality is noticeably poor. So I still save them at .bmps and convert them to .jpgs myself.


mALX: I had to do a restart of the character from a few levels earlier to get rid of a couple perks that I decided I did not want. So no more Lincoln's Hat. But now that she met Hannibal from the Temple of the Union, she will be going back to the Museum to get it once more. I doubt she will keep it, or the Repeater though.


Next: After returning from The Pitt, Boudica was exploring when she came upon an interesting scene.

Boudica comes to Canterbury Commons.
King Coin
The free version only lets you record 30 seconds of video at a time. That's the difference that may make me drop the coin to get. It gets to be a pain having to pause the game all the time so I can reset the recorder.


The first time I saw that I killed both of them and continued on my merry way. So much for the plot huh? Are we going to see more of this quest?
mALX
I didn't know you could kill them both and get the two costumes - or was it the weapons you can't get without the quest? All I know is, I wanted the Mech's apartment more than the ants's pad, so ended up missing out on the ant girl's costume, and weapon too (I think), lol.

Loved the vid, that is the first time I've seen the shouting between them before they go after each other. Whenever I've started that quest some man has run out to greet me, and by the time he quit jabbering they were already in the middle of fighting each other. It was pretty interesting to see the ants waited till they were commanded to attack.
Acadian
Just popped in to let you know I'm following your foray into videos. Although I don't expect to ever play FO3, it is fun to see snips of it presented through the eyes of your characters. smile.gif
SubRosa
King Coin: I never tried recording videos with the shareware version. Given how much you use it for video, it is probably worth getting the full version.

I am not going to go any deeper into Canterbury Commons for now. I did it a few weeks ago with Tomoe, and don't want to do the same thing all over again. I only recorded it because that opening confrontation is one of the coolest parts of the game.


mALX: My first time in Canterbury Commons I came in from the opposite end of the city, so I never saw any of the confrontation between the AntAgonizer and the Mechanist. With one of my other characters, I talked the AntAgonizer out of her life of costumed crime, and wore her suit for the rest of the game (I found a mod that replaced the textures with higher-res ones, and tweaked the stats a bit).

If I recall, the ants are not-hostile to you in that encounter. Because I have walked right up to them in the past. It is obviously all scripted. At the higher levels the robots always seem to win, but at the lower levels the ants seem to get the upper hand. Either way, it always ends up the same, with the two of them running out of the town.


Acadian: *waves* Glad to see you popping into the Capital Wasteland. It is an exciting place to visit, but I would not want to live there! Eventually I am sure to get back to Oblivion, and who knows, maybe make some videos of Teresa as she clears out all the Ayleid Ruins in Cyrodiil.

I loved going through those ruins when I played. You got so close to them before that guy saw you. Is that the Preferator? I love that gun, I played the Pitt just for it. My favorite part is when you just step back and let the car blow the raiders to hell. The combat shotgun is just great isn't it? You thought that Flame thrower guy was still alive but the second shot killed him on your way out of the room. I would have taken the flame throwers but I would have stuck with the shotty.

My first game I made the mistake of trotting into Bethesda thinking (like an idiot) that they would have a Todd Howard, Emil, Pete Hines, etc. - couldn't wait to get in there, so was at a very low level. Not sure how many times I died before I (even reached the building), then cleared the double building out - no Todd Howard, ROFL !!!

I was expecting some easter eggs in there, but if there was I didn't find them.

King Coin: That is indeed the Perforator. It is my favorite of guns from The Pitt. I like the fact that it is an automatic with a scope. But like all assault rifles, it can really chew through the ammo if I am not careful. I don't really like the shotgun much, because it is usually so poor at range. I was only using it there because I was almost out of 5.56 ammo.

I usually only have two permanent weapons for a character, typically one rifle type, and one pistol. When I pick up other guns while adventuring those are mainly just to sell as loot. But sometimes I will use them, if they are something nifty and unusual. That is why I used the flamethrower, as it is not something I often have the chance to use.


mALX: I kept thinking there would be some kind of easter eggs in Bethedsa too! I was looking for a computer game developer's office, or an Oblivion poster, or anything to link back to the devs. But if there is something there, I have never noticed it.

Boudica takes to the metro tunnels, on her way to GNR. In this vid she puts a robot to use, and later plays with fire.

Still going through the tunnels, Boudica has an interesting encounter with radroaches, feral ghouls, and a super-mutant.

I agree, there should have been something other than the Bobblehead. There is one building in the game that has a game developer's office in it - I think it is at the very south end of the map - I (or my character, I should say) played the game, lol.

Somehow I missed these vids posting! The one with the Super Mutant killing off the ghouls for Boudica, that was a surprise! I love the ones where she sets the robots out - (edited, diff one - sorry). Great Vids!

I always used that gas main to start a fire. You should have unlocked the safe, there is a laser pistol and ammo in it.

I've never seen a supermutant killing ghouls before.

mALX: You are probably thinking of Hubris Comics, that has the text-based adventure game in it. I played that too! It brought back memories of the old days of computer gaming.

I was really amazed by that three-way fight going on in the second video. There was a radroach behind me, that the last feral ran past me to kill, before running back to go after the super mutant. There was another roach in the big room that the super mutie killed too.


King Coin: I know about the laser pistol. I got that afterward. I had a laser rifle already in my inventory, so I just got it over with and used that instead. You picked out my favorite part: "I win, again!" Bam! That was just too perfect.

Boudica fights her way to GNR Plaza, and meets up with the Lyon's Pride.

Facing off with a Super Mutant Behemoth

After talking with Treydog in GNR, Boudica takes to the metro tunnels again as she heads south. Here she has more fun with robots.

I wasn't sure since you had a grenade out first. I was thinking "No! just use a laser!"

Does Treydog know he's a DJ in the capital wasteland? laugh.gif

They must have cut some of the audio out of the Xbox version of the game because I never heard some of those lines.

I really liked the robot demanding tickets from the supermutants. That was so funny! I'm glad you included that.

I only use the Fat Man in that one part of the game. The rest of the Behemoths I kill with mines and other more standard weapons. I did kill the one in the railroad yard (the one you take the teddy bear to spawn) with the alien blaster. 7 shots it took.

That one scared the crap out of me!
