Random Encounter - Fallout
Danny kills radscorpions, searches for rope, and hangs out with Ian in this Random Encounter with 1997's Fallout.
A Fallout 1 video was seen a few moths ago on this site but it is better when the United Kingdom folks play this [no offence]. Sp other video game suggestions are: Black Tiger  and Fuzion Frenzy .
Fallout was one of the few RPGs I loved when I was young, me and bro finished 1 and 2 numerous times.
On a side note and little off-topic. I still can't believe that in 2013 the vast majority of protagonists in games still conform to the GI-Joe-typical character archetype. Would be cool if you looked at some games that broke this mould. One game that always intrigued me was 'Shadowman' which originally come out on the N64, PS1 and Dreamcast.
fallout 2 is 1 of the ten best games i ever played, and believe me having start with space invaders, that mean lot of of gameplay. the multiple references to holy grail, kung fu flicks and republicans still make me lol. not to mention pulverizing tom and monica cruz in the ufologist base.even monica levinski was in this crazy plot^^. i remember finding a way to acces the alliance settlement and looting a super armour and gattling laser minigun, kind of cool trainer to waste te entire game^^.
Ah, Fallout... a true classic. Although to be honest it's VERY hard to get into, especially if you're not very familiar with turn based combat. It's probably one of the first games that really opened the world to exploration and added a lot of character development options... which is essentially the same as Fallout 3/New Vegas, the major difference between these and the original game is the turn based aspect of the early ones and more of an "actiony" real time gameplay of FO3/NV.
I'd also say the difficulty is tuned a bit high, if Fallout is new to you you should definitely start at a lower difficulty, and do check out the manual because it's a very rich game and you can easily cripple your character with a couple of wrong perk/skill/attribute choices.
A few weeks from being 28, I also get confused Danny, so being that we were both nerding around on PCs at the same time there's no reason not to do Terminator Future Shock ... or Deus Ex.
Wonderful series Danny. Really looking forward to future episodes.
I also wanted to mention a few titles I'd love to see you play sometime down the line:
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (Suggest spawning creatures for added fun)
Heroes of Might and Magic 3
Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis
Sims (Any would do)
Black & White
Again, fantastic show. Keep'em coming. :)
Brilliant game, played this a lot back in the day, until Fallout 2 was released, played that even more - brilliant game :)
Danny, you bastard, you'll never be as cool as Ian, you can't even impress the rats... BTW, play "Sacrifice". Cheers.
Danny you're constantly giving the wrong conversion prices at the end.
£16 is definitely not $12.
Great show anyway though.
ps. The only good games are 1 and 2, don't completely waste your money on the £16 Steam bundle.
Fallout 1 and 2, Two of the best games ever created!!! I loved, and played more then once!!! A big game full of things to do !!!! Very diferent of the 12 hours games of today!!!.
Great choice Danny must applaud this, but one thing is missing from this fallout encounter... SHOGO !!!! :P
@chechak7 Try going to gog.com; I downloaded the game from there on my modern pc and it works just fine.
you suck :D
Hm, no. No, I have not heard of that.
@Cryio $5.99 is like £3.93
@rhmontg sims would be awesome.
@rhmontg As brilliant a game as HoMM3 is i cant see it making a very entertaining Random Encounter. Black & White or Ghost Master would though.
I'd like to add Faster Than Light and Vampire the masquerade: Bloodlines to the list :)
@lackesse they do, Wasteland 2 launch this year
@SY_shoot I was playing XCOM Apocalypse during '97
@Afonsop I really loved the manual which isnt mentioned here but all the facts on nukes and fallout etc was awsome.
@vongroove You have an XJ220 as an avatar, therefore you are always right.
@Jahhhhva What he said!
@Jamoid to be fair this actually kinda happened in Hatoful boyfriend. The Hawk council sent pigeons to assassinate the main character LOL. Or something.....
