nah fallout 3 has several useless perks that increase two of your skills by 5 which is a total waste for me considering the dozens skillbooks available nearly every interior or square mile of the surface, idk if they just decided to spam the game with them or maybe im just noticing them now because in the begigning when i played new vegas i didnt really know the importance of those books, i remember walking by them or just selling lol

They were sort of. They were sent by the Brotherhood Elders out West to reclaim technology in the East(why they were in The Pitt), but Lyons disobeyed and decided to help the locals instead of focusing solely on tech. The Outcasts thought that Lyons was a traitor and left on their own. I don't know if the Elders in the West know about it.
User avatar #80 - trostell (06/02/2015) [-]
The thing is, that spits in the face of the actual reason the Brotherhood would be out there in the first place. Fallout Tactics is considered canon, and it explicitly states that the minority group of the Brotherhood, that sought to train the locals to keep their ranks strong, were sent over the Rockies in a primitive airship with the mission to explore to the east, determine if The Master's Army was still out there, how strong it was, and if it had formed any new leadership. Hell, you play as a tribal conscripted into the Brotherhood in exchange for your people's protection. That fits the policies of the DC chapter of the Brotherhood, but instead they need some other reason to be sensible?

what kill it for me is the lack of weapons ammo types or modifications, even the "unique" weapon share the same model as their regular version i want to fucking take of the scope from the .44 garh thats so retarded i never used that shit in nv, its a revolver not a sniper

also fallout 3 perks, compared to nv suck lol, smaller level cap...

So you're a gear player? I'm an immersion player, and I found it easier to lose myself in the world of Fallout 3.

Everyone has different ways of playing games, and different games cater to different people. Fallout 3 caters to my love of characters and interactions, while New Vegas caters more to those who like gathering stuff.

Also, Fallout 3 and New Vegas shared many of the same perks. Ofc New Vegas had more, but that doesn't mean they suck in Fallout 3. Plus, you only get perks every two levels in New Vegas, so if you have all the DLCs for New Vegas, you get a max of 25 perks. With all the DLCs for 3, you get 30.

read pic related is why fallout 3 story is worse than new vegas

>30 seconds for the courier to decide s/he wants to take over the world after finding Benny

thats like your opinion buddy, i was stunned by new vegas and all the content, it took me a long time to decide that i should help the ncr because they have the most content since the rest was cut due to deadlines

But there wasnt the same desire to explore with the small overallgameplay content I didnt really think "ooh look at that building what could be inside" because in 3 i knew it would be the same copy pasted office with the most intresting thing to find beeing a skillbook, characters werent as belivable as in new vegas

f3's athmosphere was weak as fuck atleast NV had variety as where f3 was just a field scattered with random doodads and the DC area which made no real sence fighting through a pack of super mutants only to find a random poacher two meters ahead armed with a hunting rifle which really fucking sucks compared to the hunting rifle in nv , it just doesent make sence how any of these people would live in that hellhole, no its not good athmosphere, its illogical game design.

Have you even played the game? I dont recall seeing any "rednecks" nor will i take your bait about the legion

shows how much you didnt play the game if you didnt understand the nature of the mojave

the sidequests in nv were still better than fallout 3, you're cherry picking

>And on that note of companions. The character in Fallout 3 is called "Lone Wanderer" for a reason.

thats not an excuse for bad game design

It all boils down to which one you'd rather spend your time playing. For me, it's emphatically Fallout 3, for you it's emphatically Fallout New Vegas. Simple as. Can't beat Fallout 2 tho. Shit's cash.

What about the butterfly effect? How do you consider that? It's a fairly common fanfiction plot device.

A single small change in the timeline that changes the future drastically.
User avatar #142 - viscerys (05/27/2015) [-]
That works provided it has a cause that make sense, but the butterfly effect is different to changing a canon entirely.

I'm picking on My Immortal a lot I REALLY fucking hate that story , but if you change the entire cast to goths because your character is a goth Well, more of a scene kid , then you're doing it wrong. There's a point where Dumbledore screams "What the fuck are you doing?" in all caps because he caught the main character fucking Malfoy in the woods.

However, on the other end of the spectrum, I'll mention a fanfic that I felt did things right. That being Fallout Equestria. I know most people hate ponies, but FE was written by a talented author, and it has a good reason to change the personalities of the show's characters. The "butterfly effect" here, is that a nuclear/magic war vaporised the world, turning it into a mesh of equestria and the capital wasteland. The characters are changed because of the horrifying conditions they're forced to inhabit, but it still recognises how they used to be. It doesn't retcon them.

Yeah. That makes more sense. In essence, my Fem!Harry is still Harry Potter, just with the obvious complication of being female. You can still tell it's very much the same person.

I'm 21 and the reason I write fanfiction is because I'm not terribly creative. I can't create my own worlds because I don't have that kind of vision. But I saw the blank slate that was the HP universe (because let's face it, Rowling did not flesh out that world at all) and my brain thought of so many possibilities of how to fill the universe.

Also, not to dispute your first point, because I agree. But the reason people write the same characters with such drastically different personalities is because the fanfiction community is seriously uptight about Original Characters. They can't be too important to the story and they most certainly can't be the MC. I've wrote some OCs into my story and have gotten positive reviews about them, but only because they were minor supporting characters. But I digress. I agree with that point.
User avatar #136 - viscerys (05/27/2015) [-]
Yeah, that's why stuff like "My Immortal" are so bad. They make their OC and then shoehorn the world around them, which is more terrible than Lex Luthor stealing forty cakes.

I see what you're saying, but fanfiction still draws most of its writers from the simple fact that they aren't happy with how things turned out in canon (whether they want to rewrite the characters or want to continue where it left off). In that regards, the 'bricks' method that you propose doesn't make a lot of sense. I guess my main point is that you can't really compare it to actual writing as it plays off the author's imagination far too much and in that regards, it shouldn't be taken too seriously.

And yes, my implied sex furthers the story. It's also partially a humor fic, so it's also going to create hilariously awkward scenarios later. I'm not just having my MC sleep around so she can sleep around. The plot includes her relationships with these people and sleeping together becomes a part of that.

Also, I liked your rant. It was refreshing, if a little stifling of the creative aspects that runs fanfiction. Also, I may have rambled a bit. Sorry.

tl;dr If I want a Fem!Harry to be in the Marvel Universe fighting the Chitauri alongside the Avengers, then it will happen.
User avatar #131 - viscerys (05/27/2015) [-]
While your point is valid, what causes most things to crumble is people writing the characters with the same name and appearance, but completely changing their personality. At that point, you may as well just create your own characters.

I've no real issue with fanfiction. For the most part, it's young writers wanting to create stuff (I'm only 18, but I reckon I'm good enough at this point to make my own characters and worlds), and with that, they're not going to be terribly experienced in writing, and fanfiction is a great way to improve.

I thought my bricks method made perfect sense. It allows the writer to use their imagination with the situations and stories, but it doesn't allow them to completely change personalities. Your femharry or whatever you've called her, should still, in essence, be Harry Potter. She'd have to act like him in most ways, otherwise it's just a random girl you've had take his place if that makes sense?
