Mods are very cool and there’s lots of them to try out. I played the first time with no mods and maxed out my character. I ended up being quite a good guy and a wasteland hero all around. This time with mods I’m playing quite a bit more Develish.
PS: I also played fallout 3 and completed the game.
Fallout NV and FO3 is loosely based on an old commodore game by Electronic Arts that I played probably 20 yrs ago called wasteland. Loved it even though it was mostly text based and a top down perspective.
But that was offset by Charging in guns a blazing, armed with Joshua Graham's gear (that I got after completing Honest Hearts) with Rex and Boone by my side and popping a cap in Caesar's ass.
Since I played a girl, that made it even more satisfying.
As for Fallout 3 I am back to playing the guy and trekking the Wastleland to find those damn bobbleheads.
I never played wastleland (due to mostly being a wee babe when it came out) I hear New Vegas is a tribute to it and many of N.V. developers are working on Wasteland 2 right now.
