      I beat NV eariler today and everything surrounding this homie is so weird to me.

      Is he a meta character that demonstrates what happens when an npc seeks revenge for the player blindly doing quests?
      Was all the build up across the DLCs really just for a guy who wanted revenge for a thing the player literally doesn't get the chance to give a frick about?
      I understand why he has the hate boner for the NCR but why does he buckle and let you nuke either faction under the basis of "they both same" ultimately being a massive hypocrite about making you choose.

        Ulysses was a cut companion from the game that was supposed to be the legion companion and give insight on how it's alright living in their territory. Obsidian maintained a hard-on for the character and decided to make him the main character for the DLCs. The idea was for it to be this dramatic character and event from your past that would be immune to different roleplays, it's all shit you accidentally and unwittingly did while delivering shit, which your character has to have done due to the nature of the game's plot.

          That makes a lot of sense actually. The parts where he's just explaining shit to you is very much like a companion offering you a view of the world of someone who's seen it all and why the parts where he's an antagonist are so undercooked.

              I'm not actually sure. Could be a F2 or F3 retcon for healing specifically. Radiation for sure has no negatives on them though even in F1. It's also why ghouls are no use to the unity as the more radiated one is the less effective the FEV will be.

          Because it's more overt.

Plus there's also the debate that psychic != telepathic but mind powers as a whole is just sci-fi magic.

            Why is it that they can’t just admit that they fricked up? It’s extremely clear that’s the case, Nolan even admitted he only played 3 and didn’t even finish it. Are they worried that if the show isn’t canon that that will somehow stop people from looking into Fallout? And why even set it on the west coast? They could have easily made a set that looked like something out east.

              That's why I get confused at the kneejerk "NV fanboy" reaction to the gripe. The showrunners made a basic mistake, take it on the chin, move on. And when NVgays seethe over it endlessly, then you can make fun of them. But instead, the fans of the show are so completely incapable of handling this cinemasins-tier criticism of the show that they absolutely must try to defend this very clear (and minor) mistake. The inability to handle it with a simple "it happens" makes them look like actual deranged fanboys.

                It's a cinemasins-tier criticism because it doesn't actually nail the core issue with the show, instead sticking to a gripe that could be solved with thirty second edit. Removing the NCR from the setting and making the West Coast into a wacky shithole was the core problem, some minor continuity error is not the ultimate TRVTH NVKE that is going to sink the show. It is, at best, a good example proving that the showrunners never touched a Fallout game. That's what it is, a small amount of evidence for something that was already stated outright by the showrunners, and there are much more critical parts of the show which can be used to show why that's a problem.

                If they were willing to just say
                >it was a continuity error, oh well
                Then the timeline gets retconned. Again, it's not a big deal. The problem is the overall direction of the show, and that is where the meaningful criticism is.

                This. You can't really split hairs over retcons and plot holes when nu!Fallout doesn't even work on a conceptual level.

                is more or less right, you could spend all your time talking about a ten second scene that could get axed, retconned, or otherwise adjusted without much fanfair; but obviously this isn't the actual problem with the show and even if this issue were corrected, it wouldn't fix things. It's hyper focusing on the most pedantic issue while everything else just slides because all of the focus is thrown on a five second clip.

                But they didn’t do that and they’re not going to, you can act as if it’s nothing and it doesn’t contribute but it’s the catalyst of all the dumb goofy shit that the show has. Its all about creating the moronic theme park or post apocalyptia and making everyone a cliche or a joke.

                I'm aware that they didn't do that, or at the very least the fans are trying their hardest to pretend that this wasn't an error. But the entire issue gets defused with a snap. This isn't the place where you should rest your dislike of the show, as a basic concession would suddenly leave you with no solid ground. We both know the issue with the show extends well beyond the chalkboard timeline. Like I said earlier, it is just evidence the showrunners didn't play the games. But they also already said they didn't play the games, so it is ultimately unnecessary for anything beyond a quick cinemasins style jab. When you are arguing with a fanboy of the show, you shouldn't get into a twenty post autism fight over the chalkboard timeline that was on screen for ten seconds. You should point to the much more substantive problems, the shows tone, its Fallout 4 setting, its "everything is focused on the pre-War" plot, things like that. But instead, everything gets caught up in this detail, while the much larger issues slip by.

                That isn’t happening and isn’t going to happen, if some guy keeps spitting on everyone’s windows you can say “well the police can stop him so you shouldn’t be upset” but when they do nothing and plan to continue doing nothing then it’s just hollow sentiment and shoulda coulda woulda. Also I mentioned how it was a contributor to all the dumb whacky shit.

                There's better evidence for the show having stupid wacky shit, like the scene directly after where apparently the remnants of Shady Sands (formerly the Boneyard) are all cargo cultists now for some reason and rub ashes on their naked bodies for some reason because they are all obsessed with Muldaver for some reason. The show is absolutely rife with stupid shit, everyone in Filly dressing like they just came out of the dustiest BDSM club in California, teeth being bought and sold to be used in ammunition (???), Beavis and Butthead being organ harvesters, and on and on. Instead you are getting locked into arguments with morons over chalkboards, and the only take away a casual observer has is that the main issue with the show is chalkboards.

                Yes, exactly. This is what you should be harping on. The main fricking plot being about stupid pre-War idiots. The setting being completely moronic. The show missing potential because, even if we ignore the chalkboard, they still left out a massive faction which had room for interesting storytelling. You could absolutely flood a thread with every single issue with the show, instead every thread is

                homie, the problem is with framing. If someone posts
                >what's wrong with the show
                And the immediate response is entirely couched in "chalkboard bad, it retcons New Vegas", you leave yourself in an incredibly weak position while barely touching on the core problems. All it takes is someone saying "it didn't retcon New Vegas" and you are left with essentially nothing. You have "the writers obviously didn't play the games, because this is a basic frick up". Okay. The writers also explicitly said they didn't play the games. Or you can really try to stretch it to make some broader argument about tone, but absolutely no observers are catching that. You could bring up what happens directly after the chalkboard, the stupid naked ash scene, which makes a much more solid case. Instead, you are getting locked into an argument with fanboys that will continue to insist that the timeline wasn't a frick up. I'm sorry you don't get this, but you really need to before you get trapped in another argument about the chalkboard when there are better avenues to shit on the show.

                Being reductive is always the gayest shit you can do and shows you can’t argue normally. I gave my point and explained it thoroughly and the best you could say was that something that wasn’t going to happen would fix it so I should worry about it and then when I went more in depth you acted like this it somehow was different from what I had said before despite it being on the same exact problem.

                Look, I'm telling you how it is. There is a reason why every defense of the show is about the chalkboard alongside other continuity issues and completely ignores the criticism of its moronic tone, setting, and plot. Observers are going to reduce your argument down to "chalkboard bad" because every thread devolves into arguments over the chalkboard. And it was fixed, Todd gave an ad hoc rationalization for the chalkboard not retconning New Vegas. Is it stupid? Sure, because it was obviously a rationalization born out of a continuity error instead of an intentional explanation. But it still patches up the issue, as New Vegas is not retconned. Of course, what it doesn't patch up is the absolute absence of the NCR, which should be the main point you hammer down instead. I'm going to leave you to argue with the other guy about the chalkboard, but once he has circled around for the third time back to the Fall of Rome or whatever, consider what I said. You are getting locked into a dumbfrick autism argument over a pedantic detail, and to the outside observer, it appears your main issue with the show is a continuity error. And both you and him know it is a continuity error, so clearly there is an interest there in keeping you locked in some stupid shitfest. You need to force the point away from the chalkboard.

                Blatant generalization and completely irrelevant to this situation given that that isn’t what happened. Don’t defend reductive nonsense.
                >And it was fixed
                Todd saying something without acknowledging it was a mistake (which you also acknowledged) isn’t fixing it, like I said they aren’t going to fix it so your solution of not caring is completely useless.

                It’s not a continuity error because they never meant to imply the NCR was destroyed altogether in 2277 to begin with and the showrunners said that. They just delivered that lord in a moronic confusing way and sent the wrong message and it’s too late now. People act like an inaccuratey written chalkboard is stone cold canon to start a shitstorm.

          Which actually makes things even more muddled. Todd's stubborn insistance that the show is canon and everything fits the lore is bizarre, when you can obviously see the show playing fast and loose with the setting and contradicting a lot of the lore of the games.
          But Todd said it's all canon and the show is lore-accurate, refused to elaborate and left. And now the show fanboys are using this as an appeal to authority. How very Rian Johnson of him.

        There wasn’t a continuity error. People misread a chalkboard. Todd Howard clarified on it.

      It is the Fallout 4 show. It's only at the very end that there is actually some semblance of ideological conflict, and that is massively overshadowed by Mr. Vault Tec and Mrs. I hate Vault Tec. Everything leading up to that point is wacky wasteland murder in a world entirely devoid of grounded attempts at forming any sort of civilization with the major attempt on the West Coast, the NCR, just being absent outside of Muldaver and her goons. I think there is room for course correction, but I doubt they will take it.

      Yeah I guess Walton Goggins and that Ella chick do a good job acting and the set/costume design looks pretty good (for a Fallout 4 adaptation), but is that seriously enough to make it a good, nay, great show, despite its flaws?

        is a piece of shit but the show thinks he's a good guy we should root for. Also despite betraying the BoS a bunch of times he gets promoted to Knight somehow??
        Maximus obviously isn't supposed to be a good guy you root for. There's a reason the show keeps you questioning up until the very end whether or not he actually shoved a razor in the troony's boot. The three main protagonists are obviously a play on the game's karma system - Lucy is the selfless optimist Good, Ghoul Goggins is a complete piece of shit Evil, and Maximus is the cowardly, self-serving Neutral. I can't believe I'm the only one who picked up on this shit.

          You're moronic if you think "The Ghoul" is evil when he's the only person who was "good" Pre-War. He is clearly the grey neutral (despite being heckin' mean and making Lucy drink from a puddle*). The Black person is going to be the most evil and betray Lucy when the time is right.

      The dumb twist at the end where all the greedy capitalist corporations from the games get namedropped in a plot to nuke the world in order to induce demand for the vaults and make a greater profit or whatever. The whole plot makes no sense on the face of it because all of their wealth would be rendered completely worthless within their lifetimes by nuking the world and I think all the greedy billionaires would rather be sitting in jacuzzis under the sun than eating preserved frozen food in a bunker sucking down recycled air.

      The dumbest part about it is that there's such a simple fix to not make the concept not implicitly moronic while still carrying the message of "le corporations bad"; that all the corporations just wanted to ride high off the government contracts they're getting (like what's already established throughout all the previous games), and are using their influence to deliberately stoke tensions between the US and China, maybe even to the point of having anti-war figures assassinated to prevent any threat to the perpetual cold war. Then they learn too late they can't control human nature, shit spirals out of control, and the nukes fly. But that implicates the glorious CCP at least partially in the total destruction of the world and Amazon doesn't want to piss off China.

      Fallout NV gives the character the same amount of backstory as Fallout 3. People like to think you can be anything as the Courier, but no, you're a young guy or girl who accidentally delivered a nuke detonator to The Divide and has a long history of courier work. You can't roleplay as some old man or whatever.

    You were already on the radar before you even made it to the Mojave.
    Caesar knew you had the chip and House saw you get up and keep walking after getting a new forehead piercing.
    The NCR are the only stretch because the story seems to assume you'll already have helped them at the outpost. I can only assume they take an interest in you solely because the Legion and House did.

    You can nitpick the timeline all you want, ultimately the problem is with the direction.
    I don't care about the BoS and I don't care about the vaults. I wanted a story where humanity gets back on its feet and rebuilds in different ways. Instead we get World of Warcraft except the Alliance is wearing power armor and the Horde is FEV orcs. Nothing ever changes, nothing ever develops, it's a permanent state of stagnation because the writers have no idea how to handle the world outside of the same tired, boring, overused post-apocalyptic tropes.

      Fallout fans are crossed over with RPG grognards who are also crossed over with /misc/tards. They’re perpetually mad. Larian put BG3 in front of them and all they could do and talk about was trannies and bear sex. They’ve never once had an honest or good faith opinion about RPGs. They were allegedly mad at the ones that made them fall in love with RPGs and they continue to pretend to be more mad now to uphold their smartguy projection to protect their insecurity about themselves. This is about something much more base and petty than Bethesda taking their favorite toys to let other kids play.

                Do you ever look in the mirror and wonder how you can have such little self awareness? Or do you just layer on so much irony that the mask is all you are now, I know you’ll just reply with another string or moronic zoomer speak but it’s genuinely baffling how anyone can be this demoralized that they would just start rolling around in shit to prove a point.

        Even if we give our mental gymnasts the benefit of a doubt, the explanation still doesn't work. Because in NV, Shady Sands is still a very active governmental body in 2281 and NCR has just WON the battle of Hoover Dam. You even get to see the president.
        So... how can it fall in 2277? And don't give me this "well, it's the beginning of the fall, naturally". Because, frick me.

    Keep in mind that Todd only realized there is a continuity conflict in the show, when the INTERVIEWER POINTED IT OUT. And put Todd a fan theory on a silver platter. His answer was pretty much:
    >hey, Todd, people keep saying that the date 2277 contradicts the events of New Vegas and they are theorizing that Fall of SS and nuking of SS are two separate events. Is it true.
    >Yes, yes, sure totally, let's go with that, SS was nuked after New Vegas, no lore conflict, next question.
    I am sad that the interviewer didn't ask Todd how SS teleported 200 miles south.

        Underrail unironically has worse pacing and also intentionally copies the frick-ups of the original Fallout games for no fricking reason to its own detriment. Still a good game but wouldn't just say "don't play Fallout 1 and 2, play Underrail instead"

          I think I just really like the setting and world building of Underrail, perhaps my dislike of Fo1/2 is painted by how shoddy the world building is due to the modern games and Fo2 being a pretty big tonal shift from 1.

    If they wanted to be as careful with the timelines and dates of things like Todd said in the interview then it was either an odd choice or a simple muck up to not place a specific date on the bombing of Shady Sands if they didnt want people to be confused or make their own theories because something as lore important as that should definitely have been made crystal clear. That being said I thinks its entirely in the realm of possibility that the show runners and maybe to the extent Bethesda considering their writers have made it clear how little respect they have for the lore just didnt care to know the timelines of things so Todd had to do some quick damage control after they heard all the fuss, which turned out was something easy to 'fix'. I mean this hasn't been the first time Todd decided to by sneaky or straight up lie about things so he's not a very reliable source of truth but I guess some people are still brainwashed by his presentation charm.

    Because you're in literal war zone.
    You're by default hired by House, eventually he provides more potential work because you have potential. NCR and Legion want House dead because he is a major obstacle and is essentially a wild card to everyone.
    NCR want total takeover because it's life or death scenario. They need water and electricity, and Hoover Dam is what they need. House, prevents total control of the dam, so NCR want courier to be their disposable merc who does dirty work and gets rid of House, so they can cash out later with promises of better opportunities and wealth.
    Legion is counter culture of all. They are extremely opportunistic and don't care about what it takes, as long they get to control the dam and see fall of the NCR. They are already winning the war, courier only happens to get in their way, so they seize the opportunity to get courier join their ranks and make Nevada's takeover even easier.
    If it wasn't courier, Legion would win by default.

        Then at that point, you either obtained the chip and entered the Lucky 38 with it, or you still have the chip. In either case it would make sense for them to contact you, for the former you are one of the only people who ever got into contact with House and for the latter you have the chip

          No it really doesn't. Because at that point, only House knows Benny has the chip. They IMMEDIATELY grant you pardons, both at the same time, after you exit the Tops.
          If you're a cuckgay who enters House's 38 before dealing with Benny, then sure, it makes sense. If you're not leashed however, and prefer to ignore Victor's invitation to the Lucky 38 to deal with your revenge, then the other factions should have no means of knowing you just procured the Platinum Chip from that weasel, Benny.
          In Caesar's defense, he does mention that you just waltz into the casino of some guy and kill their boss, and almost repercussions. The same could be said of any other casino. But it won't be said. Because the plot wasn't written so.

    Both NCR and the Legion want you, because you can work around the red tape the both factions are wrapped in.
    NCR want you to make moves they officially can't make. They can't officially waltz into Strip and kill House even though they would love to do it, but when some unaligned party kills him... well, tough.
    It's similar with Legion - Caesar wants to keep his followers in the dark, so he can't tell them to go destroy BoS or the robots at the Fort, because they might start asking questions. But and unaligned party might do that.
    As to why you specifically? You are the only person to ever enter the Lucky 38 in 200 years a had a face to face with House himself. Therefore, you have access to him.

    Pretty sure House wants to meet you before you get to Benny

    Lupus surely gets sent to find you before you do it too, makes no sense that he'd be there with a summons for something you literally just did two minutes ago before you left the building

    Would be funny if you purposefully avoided actually doing anything of note before reaching the strip so Caesar's interest in you makes zero sense
