Fallout 2 Query


Musopticon?

Recommended Posts

A few days back I had an urge to hit the wastes once again and this time do it with an unarmed fighter build/scientist dope. So far the game's been fun. I boxed in Reno and hit Prizefighter, saved Modoc and Gecko and I'm nearing Vault 15, after I just get that Power Fist from Francis in Broken Hills. Good times, good times. :D

 

Anyway, on my previous play times, I've always headed to vault 13 the shortest way, maybe after doing some stuff on the starter towns like Klamath and Den, without really bothering to explore. I always figured, with the Shaman taking contact from time to time, that Arroyo would eventually die, if I didn't make haste.

 

But this time; I had to look up some stuff from Gamefaqs(mainly where to find a super tool kit, still haven't found one as Smitty didn't have one in Den) and I found out that the game doesn't have a time limit. What the heck? Could I just take my time clearing towns from quests and enemy masses and then go to the vault on like level 42? Do the Shaman messages just stop? I've had one already.

Yeah, the messages just stop. You can't prevent your townsfolks from being snatched by the Enclave no matter how fast you find the GECK, so when a certain time passes, it's assumed the Enclave has raided your village, instead of it being triggered by your finding the thing.

Cool, I'm off to beat some Raiders then. Thanks.

 

Damned hard to do with Unarmed. :wacko:

I did that too my first play through. I figured that stupid shaman talking to me and telling me to hurry up was a sign that I should go through quickly, but then I found out it didn't matter how fast I did things.

 

So after that I basically did all the other areas before even bothering with the main quest. I didn't like the shaman anyway. He deserved to die for not giving me more roots for free.

It's amazingly satisfieing to jab someones eyes out with a well-placed targeted blow. Got to love those haymakers and power kicks. Damned if I get a decent armor for cheap, as my charisma is 3. :D

Actually, once I played Fallout 2 with an unarmed character for the first time, I've never been able to replay the game with an armed character again. It's awesome. At first it makes things a bit harder, but once you get enough levels you are absolutely invincible. Get all the action points perks, as you'll be running all over the place.

They removed the second "invisible" time limit from Fallout 1 aswell because the Fallout series are the kind of games that you play and play and play. I think it took me about 2

Because the village is in dire need and you, and only you, for you are the chosen one, the one who can only act, must save it.

 

You mean like......THE CHOSEN ONE MUST CHOOSE!?!?

It's going to be captured by the Enclave regardless, so what is the point of a speedy finish to that quest?

 

 

It's called roleplaying. If your character cares about the village, then you should proceed to find the GECK as fast as humanly possible.

 

If your character doesn't care about the village, then don't worry about it.

If that's the case then fine.

 

 

Though you already stated your intent when you said "why bother" because you already knew the outcome. You're just trying to rationalize your decision to take you sweet time.

My character did everything because if he did go after the GECK quickly, he would realize how small (or no existant) his story actually was... :ph34r:
