VATS

Re: Fallout 3

Dear Sirs,

Your use of first-person shooting in an "RPG" is curious. I do appreciate your so-called VATS targeting system as, with my preferred play style, I am able to blow bitches' heads apart from ten paces. Therefore, I belive I must humbly submit my approval of your game.

Perceptively yours,
abmann, esq.

Dear Will,

I am going to start fall out tomorrow.

I hope you didn't ruin my November.

You're remarking on something Fallout fanboys have been raging about since the dawn of time, my friend.

Um.. ok? I &hearts me some fallout but I'm hardly a hard-to-please fanboy.

I just dislike FPS's because I don't have a lot of fine coordination in my nub. Aiming is difficult for me so being able to bypass that via queued actions in their VATS system, I'm pleased. So, yay!

Never said you were, just that you're mentioning something that I've seen covered time and time again. I figured you'd have some idea on it since you seem to enjoy Fallout. The Gamefaqs forums are rife with arguments on how this game will overemphasize twitch gameplay over strategic thinking.

I think that's fair. I inadvertently killed someone I didn't want to kill last night because of that. So, I think I'm going to grab an earlier save point and try again.

Just so you know, it took me nearly 2 hours, but I have successfully installed running copies of both fallout and fallout 2 onto my xp machine with tricked out graphics.

I'm exhausted. I think I'll take a nap and play them tomorrow.
