Encased is on PC and in Early Access and it's a cool Sci-Fi Post-Apocalyptic RPG that I think you will love as much as I do.

When I was spending hundreds of hours combined making my way through the irradiated wastes offered to me in the previous Fallout games (the first two games, or if you like, ‘the best ones’, included) you know what I wished for, each step of the way?

Saying that something never changes is not necessarily a slur or a derogatory remark against it and in this case, I'm happy to say it's a compliment.

As Fallout fans wait with baited breath for some kind of a Fallout 4 announcement, it has gotten me thinking about what I would like to see included within the next fallout installment……

The Fallout world is massive and you can imagine any introduction of a new mechanic in the game must be an arduous undertaking.

But putting all that to one side, what would be on my Fallout 4 Wishlist?

Throughout the Fallout series you are given the option to bring along a companion for the ride and I am a great fan of companions as the Wasteland can be a very lonely place for the courier…

 

The companionship afforded by these select band of Wasteland heroes 

(& villains) is extremely valuable to the player in combat and funnily enough the additional person to share the load with means you form a lasting relationship with this person (if that’s possible).

 

It's an odd occurrence really as you begin to start really caring about these sharers of your experience, especially after you assist them with their very own side quest which invariably gives you some backstory on how they have managed to end up in the wasteland.

Whilst marauding the Mojave Wasteland you get the opportunity to trial many superb weapons.


There are bog standard weapons like the .357 Magnum or the 9mm Pistol.


Then there's the slightly more advanced weapons like the Laser Pistol or the  10mm Machine Gun.


Not forgetting the fact that there's a whole plethora of melee weapons to utilise such as the humble baseball bat through to the Super Sledge and other quirky ,specially named melee weapons such as

Fist Of Rawr & Golden Gloves

After that you get the rarer versions of your standard weapon set which come affectionate names such as Annabelle and Lucky


Then there's the awe inspiring super destructive weapons such as the Missile Launcher or The Fat Man!


Over the course of the walkabout in Mojave you get attached to particular weapons.


Here's The Top 5 Weapons Of Choice that we make sure our hero, Dana, doesn't leave the vault without.......

☆Fallout New Vegas - Game Diary 3 - "Are You A Lock Picker OR A Computer Hacker?" ☆ #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Games Freezer, Fallout New Vegas




In Fallout the Lockpick and Computer Hacking skills are art-forms…

 

Lockpick requires a steady hand as you tease the Bobby Pin inside the lock and try and find the right sweet spot to get the lock to open.

 

The harder the lock the tougher the sweetspot is to find which will get you entry into the forbidden area.

 

Computer Hacking on the other hand is a test of logic and problem solving as you scan the words and characters for a clue to the terminal password.

 

Within the jumbled characters and words there are a number of brackets which ,when in the right order and selected, will take away a 'Dud' password or even replenish your guess allowance.

 

With the guess allowance set at 4 the Computer Hacking is tough nut to crack as you search for that elusive pword and a <> or a ( )

 

Once you have cracked the code you then get to view the forbidden information that was being concealed away or even sometimes that terminal will give you access to a particular door that you may not otherwise be able to open.

Fallout New Vegas, Video Games

With the Fallout series the game's central story is almost surplus to requirements when playing this marvellous, involving, all consuming RPG.

 

I tend to set out with the best intentions of taking another step forward with the unveiling of the storyline and yet I will more often than not get distracted by a battle or a side quest that will take me in totally the opposite direction.

 

The thing is, that is the beauty of an open world to explore to your hearts content…..


The creators of the Fallout New Vegas have created a landscape that is begging to be explored.

It's vast and it's open, so vast and open that sometimes you can walk for minutes without encountering anything!

In that scenario it makes your next encounter with someone or something even more memorable.

You also find yourself feeling glad to locate a moving white marker on your in game compass as you realise it's a friend rather than a red enemy marker.

It's these stumbled upon moments in the game that make it so worthwhile to play.

2 years after finishing Fallout 3 I decided it was time to be consumed by the post apocalyptic wasteland again.

 

Fallout New Vegas was my experience of choice this time and this time I've decided to trial the documenting of my Mojave Wasteland journey.

 

This could make for good video games journalism or it might just end up being tedious.......but I'll give it a go because I'm sure that buried within the Wasteland is a Story to tell.........

♥My Love Affair With Fallout 3♥ #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

It's been 3 years since I battled for over 100 hours in the Wasteland....


3 years since I scavenged dead bodies for my next bottle cap...


3 years since I savoured the refreshing taste of Nuka Cola....


3 Years since I crept around a spooky old abandoned building in search of a Pip Boy Bobblehead!


For me Fallout 3 was video games perfection. 


The most open of open world gaming experiences where you made the experience your very own. 

Fallout 3 gave you the free reign to create your very own Wasteland story and as you trod carefully around this most hazardous of environments you really felt vulnerable and excited at what possibly lay round the next corner or down the hole or cave.

At that point in time it was like no other video game I had ever experienced a truly eye opening experience as to what was really possible in a video game environment.

Two experiences really stand out for me...


The first was my initial encounter with "Raiders"  ! For those that don't know, Raiders are vicious individuals who kill for the thrill of it and prey on others in groups of ruthless gangs. 

As I strolled around the wasteland as a new escapee from vault 101 I located an old deserted super market called "The Super Duper Mart".

The Super Duper Mart looked ripe for exploring and potentially scavenging some important supplies so I armed myself with my trusty rifle and entered the building.

Little did I know that it was overrun by Raiders who were about to show me no mercy! 

At this point in my journey through Fallout 3 I was a puny character with not much skill in anything except maybe picking locks!! 

So as I entered bullet hell that was The Raiders in full flow I wasn't giving myself much chance until I stumbled across V.A.T.S and a cache of grenades!

I think the thing that sticks in my mind the most was how amazingly cool the camera work was when I managed to dispose of one of the evil Raiders by blowing his head off with a grenade in slow mo! 

Now I don't usually go for extreme violence in video games but this seemed like the Raiders deserved their mind blowing fate as they were unrelenting in their pursuit of me........it was at this point that I realised Bethesda & Fallout 3 had got me.......I was in the Wasteland for the long haul!!



The other experience that really shaped my Wasteland experience was the side quest early in the game entitled THOSE!

A small boy called Bryan Wilks approached me in Grayditch and asked to help him find his father, who was trapped in the town infested with fire ants!



When I eventually found out that poor old Bryan's Dad was attacked and killed by Fire Ants it was time to try and exact revenge on those pesky creatures and as I entered the underground dwelling I realised exactly how puny I was as time after time after time the ants took me apart at will! 

It was a humbling experience that led me to understanding that The Wasteland is never forgiving and you have to earn your right to be good enough to stand up for yourself out there!

So after 3 years, why am I talking about two of my most memorable Fallout 3 experiences?

Well i'll tell you why.........

I'm about to re-enter the Fallout Universe in the form of "Fallout New Vegas"

It's been long enough and now it's time to give up another 100 hours of my life to one of the greatest games ever created........

Watch Out For My Tales From New Vegas As This Time I will Attempt To Document My Descent Into One Hell Of A Gaming World!

Fallout allows the gamer to soak up all the atmosphere and backstory of the game while delivering a unique all encompassing experince for every gamer that gets lost in the wasteland for hours at a time.

When we discovered that there was a way to get hold of the COOL Graphic Novel that was only previously available in the Fallout New Vegas Collectors Edition we were understandably excited!

The novel aims to give some backstory to the town of NEW VEGAS by giving you the insight into what leads up to the very beginning of the game.

Take a look at what Google Play says about this COOL work of art and then why not head over to Google Play to download this must for all Fallout Geeks like ourselves.....

"Bethesda Softworks teams up with Dark Horse Comics to create Fallout: New Vegas—All Roads, a complete graphic novel previously only available in the Fallout: New Vegas collector’s edition!

All Roads introduces the world of New Vegas, a town of dreamers and desperadoes being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis, and tells an intriguing tale of loyalty and violence that leads right up to the beginning of the game.

Written by Chris Avellone, the game’s senior designer, All Roads is tightly integrated into the story of New Vegas, even containing clues to ingame missions for the sharpeyed reader.

Artists Jean Diaz (Incorruptible) and Wellinton Alves (Shadowland: Blood on the Streets, Nova) and cover artist Geof Darrow (Hard Boiled, The Matrix Comics, The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot) stunningly interpret the world of New Vegas! "
