    Dammit. I'm so impatient. I'm at work for one, then I have practice as soon as I get home for couple hours. I hereby declare the toking and bourboning will commence directly after and shall not end until it is time to pass out.

    1C/Cenega does everything possible to avoid getting paid for their licensing.

    I damn miss those old, boxed games. Now with digital editions, everyone does what they want and when they want - Dead Money coming out for 1C more than month after other versions being prime example.

    Played for a while now. Pretty cool so far, imo. I am not too deep into it yet, but the feeling / atmosphere is nice.

    Heh, for now I would be glad if it is a month. Recently we had Steam officially launched here in Russia. And all Bethesda games became unavailable for this region.

    Three hours in. The atmosphere is cool but it's extremely linear, and Ulysses' ramblings are way too vague to be interesting. Really kind of a waste. More "show don't tell" mistakes on why the NCR doesn't work.

    This your first DLC in NV Brother None?

    Ulysses *is* very rambling and sorta "floating" but I think it almost fits with the story arc in the DLCs. It's very drama-speak and I think it fits in well for the ending chapter, as weird as that may sound. It feels more like it's about the Courier's personal journey than anything else. I guess he reacts differently if you're a Legion supporter when you first speak to him?

    That said, all the Avellone designed DLCs remind me that, while I love Avellone's writing and ideas, he's not really my nr 1 choice for Fallout. I prefer my Fallout to be a lot more straight and down-to-earth, more like Honest Hearts (not counting the fact that it was a bit light on content). Avellone's DLCs for Fallout feel a bit too "high fantasy Fallout" for my tastes even though I really like them on their own.

    Nope. I ran through the three others, all gifted by NMAers, a few weeks ago. Old World Blues was by far my favorite.

    Funny you mention MCA, some of the dialog with Ulysses reminded me of some of the end-game dialog in other Avellone games, like at the end of Torment. Except there all this higher-plane bruahaha works, in Fallout it just comes across as pointless meandering.

    Hey why I don't get those gifts? I can't use the damn credit card, curses...

    A bit of a shame the story of Victor seems to have been cut out of the original game, and doesn't appear to be shown in this last DLC, I'm a bit disappointed.

    Beat it. I found it almost unplayable at Level 40+ on Very Hard and very easy when I switched to Normal. Very linear, maybe 7 locations not on the main path.

    I'm still not sure anything made sense...
