    Yep, their rise is a mirror of that of America. Which is why the likes of Caesar and House tell the player that the NCR is doomed to the same failings as pre-war America and it would just be history repeating itself with the NCR. I would say that in the timeline of New Vegas that the NCR is more or less in the same camp as America was during the Oregon Trail days. People are moving out East now instead of West, the Republic is looking to expand in order to support their growing population, the NCR is starting to get into conflicts with tribes out East over land. Pretty much a mirror of America during the days of the Oregon Trail.

    *Looks at all the recent posts*

    Hello, Hello, Anybody Home? Think NMA, Think! They say War, War Never Changes for a reason. The NCR are shown to be the first Nation State to crawl out of the ashes on American soil so far and up until they ran into Caesar's Legion the only things they have been running into are city states and tribals. Hell the BOS for all their technological might are essentially a group of terrorists. They have limited resources and can hold no ground. the real question is, is the NCR going to be giving checks to the Great Khans in a 100 years? Because you know history has a tendency to repeat itself.

    They did. And then axed the quest he was in (Unsafe Harbour).

    Alphons, if I recall it correctly, they axed it because of "quality concerns". Video about it was uploaded in this thread, wasn't it?

    I was just kidding, I mean I'm not surprised that they fumbled up voice shit TK Mantis made a video about them being incompetent. That raises a hell of a lotta questions.

    THAT JUST RAISES FURTHER QUESTIONS.

    fake edit; my b, should've read the thread more throughly.

    I think the thing is that New Vegas puts the NCR at a very pivotal crossroad point that will determine its future. If you read the game guide the picture it paints of NCR before the Kimball admin is very different to the USA, much more focused on mutualism and supporting eachother.

    If the NCR lose at Hoover Dam to an independent Vegas (whether House or Anarchy) we get plenty of indication that they turn away completely from the Kimball administration and everything it represents. The relevant politicians are blamed and the imperialist behaviour is squashed.

    Victory at Hoover Dam basically rewards everything they've done and gets them to double down, we're even told they're just taking a breather before they head into Arizona.

    I think NCR has a chance at not retreading history, but only if it loses to Vegas.

    Quest author Lucas left the team after making only this quest and some minor level design. Quest was playable at that time (you can see an entire playthrough on his channel).
    It didn't work for some other team members, so as Lucas wasn't on team anymore it was scrapped.

    First part of playthrough, with quest author's comment pinned (it's pretty vague).

    Yeah I see now. Maybe quitting was blessing in disguise, only Lucas knows for sure.

    Honestly the original Call Of Duty:NCR is probably more enjoyable than whatever replacement is being cooked up

    At least you can enjoy mocking it.

    There was so much to make fun of with the NCR questline. My favorite was the space station that ripped off both Dead Space and Wolfenstein. The NCR quest was the equivalent of my 3 year old nephew playing with his action figures and making up a story of whatever crap he watched. The other questlines feel like someone's creepy hentai fic or shirty Tumblr fan fic.

    They should die honorably like men and just dump all the mod's assets as a modder's resource then disappear.

    They are deleting comments. There was a post calling them out on throwing ZuTheSkunk under the bus and now its gone.

    Has DevilWish ever said anything about the Frontier after release? You would think he would say something after everyone pointing the finger at him at why for the mod turned out the way it did.

    If they were smart, genuinely cared about modding and actually wanted to salvage whatever reputation they have they would release the assets as a modders resource. They at least would gain some goodwill if they did. Since these people are Prima Donnas who are high off their own farts they aren't going to. Instead they are going to be just like Side Show Bob and keep stepping on those rakes.
    DevilsWish kind of just disappeared from the modding scene. I think he saw the way the wind was blowing and just peace the fuck out. The best thing for him to do is to say nothing.

    Yeah, they should give the whole vehicles being drivable to someone who can actually put together at least a decent mod that is not full of bullshit content.
