          so nobody would die, as opposed to the super mutant telling you that you are destined to die, because reasons, and despite no detriment to him he refuses to save your life.

          It's not that the mailman is explaining logistics to a veteran as though he has to be taught the concept. The mailman is reminding the veteran of what he already knows. Specifically a general who, up to this point, was not in charge of making such decisions. Caesar had ideological reasons for his conquest which he was expected to fulfill to the best of his ability. Now that he's large and in charge, he needs to take ownership of his actions and strategies.

              yeah if they didnt make a larger thread through the game then they're left to undo all of a characters motivation in one dialogue which means either the its a poorly written dialogue or the character was poorly written from the start.

              F3 was poorly written iirc but at least the game wasnt trying to be serious so the idea of logic looping a computer made sense.

                Your key failure in this argument is assuming that every military commander has the same skillset and is promoted to that rank for the same reasons. Lanius was a top fighter, and knew when he could defeat the enemy. The entire point of the speech route is that you convince him he will not win in the end due to logistics, and so Lanius retreats so he can one day return and become victorious.

                The Legion would need to shift from an expansionist culture, to a administrator culture to account for those supply line foibles. They're both talking about the same thing, but Caesar made a longer term, broader prediction based on his own biases and ideals, viewing it more as a shift in environment and subsequent evolution. Lanius took a more immediate, practical view on it, based on the fact that he already saw the Legion as standing at the pinnacle, so he didn't even consider how the Legion might adapt to the new situation, only how it would act as a wound to the Legion as it was.

                And it's not like this is a Ulysses situation where he's someone's OC mouthpiece who has to have 10 in all Special.

                You're incredibly stupid for taking hidden gameplay stats seriously when comparing a character's actual intelligence in the story. In fact I'd say you have 8 IN.

                If it's just some random character I'd agree, but when it's a important character to the plot I'd expect them to try and make the stats align what they want the character to be.

                There is no indication whatsoever to assume that they cared to make SPECIAL stats of characters align with their personality. The only way in which an NPC's SPECIAL would be tested is through combat, so actually the safe assumption would be that it's just for combat balancing and nothing else.

                int doesnt effect combat though so unless they randomized it they would just be the same

                Do you think Lanius is more intelligent than House? Because House only has 5 IN in his stats. If your answer is yes then I'm done with this argument because you'd just be lying.

                If it helps I was just shitposting about the stats stuff. I would normally expect games like this though to try and match the stats of the important characters with how they want them portrayed, like House having high INT and low CHR because he's a bit of a prick.

                I guess I'm expecting it because Sawyer liked doing that in Pillars. I recall he did some presentation at that GDC where he talked about how for instance Pallegina I'm that game is noted to have failed her test to become a paladin a few times before getting it right, so even though a paladin ideal wants a decent amount of might she only has 12 because it fits her her backstory and shit.

                Owlcat does that as well, it's why Valerie in Kingmaker has 15 charisma because she's suppose to be pretty hot even though her class doesn't need it, while Wenduag in Wrath starts with 5 because he's not only a weird spider/cat mutant but also just a horrible person who acts like a cunt to everyone.

                What I don't get is that they felt the need to make 3 different fucking archers. Sure you get Lann and Wenduag early enough you can reasonably enough switch them to a different class (Lann can be good as a cleric or mutt warrior for instance) but it's just a weird choice to me.

                Because as far as I know you only keep one or the other at the beginning and it's very easy to lose the other later in the game if you pick the wrong options, I mean there's more melee characters than archers, it's not like they're all just basic archers either

                This. You decide between Lann and Wenduag, and you don't get Arue till at best the end of act 2 and at worst early act 3. And if assuming you did the quest the right to recruit the other you don't get them until near the end of the game.

                it takes .5 seconds to do and the designer has to do the relevant ones anyway, may as well have them do it if you think you might implement an int based item or dialogue etc. You might also do it as a way to generate dialogue either procedurally or as a shorthand for your writers for how to tone dialogue for the character.

      Fallout 1 is the only game that did this well for the sole fact that the Master just says
      >"Alright, where's your proof then?"
      And you actually have to present proof to him that his plan is flawed, he doesn't just take you at your word.
      I wish more games made speech instead of just being the "I win" button for everything it just opened the option to actually convince that person, and then the player has to actually think of what to say to convince the character. Obviously for smaller quests and such I wouldn't expect that but for important quests I think it would be neat.

          When I did that he said his researchers told him I was full of shit and there wasn't a issue.

          I would like it more if you used not only 100 speech but say 100 guns/science/ some special stats to help convince lanius of how his invasion will fail him in the end, at least you can still fail after doing all the speech checks if you choose the wrong ending option

          That's another issue, the games over reliance on Speech. It's obviously better then Fallout 3 which did have some skill checks for other stats, but most of the time no matter what the stat needed to convince someone of something is just speech and a stat that might actually be relevant to the topic isn't.

          It states that he and his scientists did check, but for whatever reason, only the male mutants. If you don't have the hard data from the BoS scribe detailing mutant sterility I think he calls the notion preposterous and attacks anyway. If I'm to play devil's advocate here, Marcus mentions in FO2 that the male super mutants are seemingly sterile for upwards of a year or two after being dipped, so perhaps that's where the concern was, or that simply none of the male super mutants had progressed enough that they had to check the female mutants.

              He specifically says "Hope she doesn't get pregnant" which prompts the conversation. If I'm remembering right his response to you bringing up mutant sterility is "nah, it just takes a few years to get the juices flowing again" so take that for what you will.

      It's actually a pretty elegant way to remove a very resource intensive element without sacrificing visual fidelity. Bethesda used to be pretty smart with finding out ways to work around engine limitations ( like the train in fallout, or the reused props in Skyrim ).
      I really enjoyed fallout 3 despite the dumb writing and horrible gunplay.

                Well, it's spaceship, not an attraction.
                It's waste of potential though, it could handle a lot of content, such as various text logs, many more historical remnants, various alien devices, more actual horror and some other things that would be in a research ship like this.

          Besides that the companions are straight up just better than the rest of the series
          1/3 companions were just souless meat sticks
          2 had very little charm in theirs but some
          New vegas companions have their moments and full dedicated quests with outcomes. Huge step up but they barely talk and only choose to discuss something with you very rarely outside of their quest, sometimes i forgot i even have one.

    not trying to defend fallout 3 at all but aperently (from cut content videos) the original script and plan for fallout 3 didn't even have the FEV option, a lot of stuff was different, so they didn't plan for you to be able to make choices at the end at all. a lot of the choices were added last minute and resulted in this bullshit where it doesn't make any sense or is horrible writing

    another example of this is the whole enclave thing with eden and autumn. in the original script. their plan from the beginning was to sabatoge the purifier, and thats why the brotherhood is willing to help you fight them to get it back. it also explains why the autumn eden clash is retardedly writen, because they changed it last minute without any thinking

      Both games have a plot, and both let you skip to the halfway point if you know what you're doing. In Fallout 3 if you know where the dad is you can go straight to that vault, skipping megaton, GNR, Rivet City and the memorial while in New Vegas you can go straight to Vegas and with high enough science walk right into Vegas, or just pay for a passport or save up 2k and then you're already at the point where you decide a faction.

        It was the first really big Western RPG that caught the attention of people when vidya finally crossed that line of no longer being this niche hobby but instead something found in every household as common as the tv itself. And for people that never really experienced any form of RPG's it was a big deal. Simple and basic enough to attract as many people as possible but just a bit complex and deeper enough than the average military shooter that basically exploded the industry.

            It's like getting angry when people say "Bioshock was made to be a less complex System Shock 2 to appeal to console players". Like, my man, that is a direct quote from the lead dev.
            3 was very much the same way.

                Infinite's issue was that like 60% of the actual game got cut and wasted so much cash and time on shit they never even added it bankrupted the studio.

                I swear I read somewhere that Irrational actually had a fire that destroyed a bunch of their work and they had to redo everything from scratch but for the life of me I cannot find it again. I may be misremebering for another vidya but I swear it about Infinite.

                I gave up on the series when the E3 announcement for 4 showed that its removing skills entirely. But at the same time I fully acknowledge 3's importance on making the franchise profitiable and without it I wouldn't have NV which is one of my favorite games of all time.

                I'm a little sad the series no longer wants me as an audience but at the end of the day it's the individual games that matter not grand franchises. Fallout being what it is now isn't the end of the world. I got shit like Underrail and Disco Elysium to get my fix ever so often.

                Disco is great, I still need to play Underrail but I look at the skills and I'm trying to figure out what kind of character I want to make.
                I'm kind of curious about Starfield but I'm not getting on any band wagons or hype trains and I'll properly play it a year later when there's some mods available that will let me make the game more to my tastes. But if they continue the pattern of dumbing down their games I've no interest, while Starfield Todd is claiming more they want to bring back RPG features and elements.

He is also a leech that fucked off to France just to leech off money from the government by not working.

                You don't even have to try to read that deeply into it. The temptation of Galadriel scene spells it all out for the reader as plain as day. Anyone that would argue otherwise is a genuine idiot that not only doesn't know how to read, but also doesn't know to shut the fuck up and not speak about shit they know nothing about. I'd be surprised if Varg even read 5 pages of Tolkien's work and didn't just base all he knows of it off the films.

    Todd is putting you in the shoes of The Master from Fallout 1. Fawkes just used a 100 Speech check on you and now the Lone Wanderer has to die, just like the Master did. It's a rather brilliant meta-commentary on RPG game mechanics that few people have caught on to.

              There's not much about it because it got cut early on I think. I think mainly because they'd want the King to sing an Elvis song, but it would cost a lot to use his songs which is why there's none of his stuff on the radio despite the game having a entire gang styled after him.
