Now. I'm very sorry for being so descriptive. But I just have the most incompetent mind or the most non-gold luck you'll ever see in your short 100 year life. I swear to gods, why is it so hard to just be in… Fallout 2 and beat it.
It's been 120 hours…
And it's been FIVE YEARS.
And I still can't just make the build and go do the thing to get to the end game. I always go like this…
"The temple nice, let's get this over with. Oh, the Klamath. I like Klamath, it has nice quests. Oh, the Den. Den is hard, I gotta kill Metzger. What, Modoc and Vault City? Yes. Yes. Fascinating quests." Then I go to the New Reno and I am angry. Or then I go to Redding and I am angry. Once I had been to that city where there were these green guys. And that was the furthest I've ever got…
I forgot that was supposed to be a quote. Hold on, let me fix it. Yes. That is where the end of the quote is supposed to be.
So, what was I talking about? Ah, yes.
Energy Weapons are so bad to play if this is the only thing you had selected as a weapon specialization. Because you only get the Energy Weapons at VERY FAR INTO THE GAME… Or if YOU STEAL ONE FROM A GUY… But then THEORITICALLY… Where am I supposed to get any ammo?
The game is super hard early and a grind if you didn't get the Unarmed or Melee Weapons. Because the first two hours of the game is literally running around without a gun of any kind and just punching geckos in the face like some sort of manifestation of a Chuck Norris joke from the early 2000s.
Of course, you can skip most of the early game, by running really fast… Or stealing stuff… Or just skipping the quests… Or by somehow acquisitioning the 10mm pistol from the trader in Klamath… But…
Why can't I just play the game the way I wanna play and have to do all these things to avoid getting screwed over by the game itself???
Why is this 1990s classic playing like a high school test?
Why can't it be like Deus Ex… Where I can just walk around and I'll be satisfied with my own weird… Swim/Big Guns and like… Hacking plus Lockpicking build? And why are random encounters so stupidly broken?
I went to New Reno in the early game, and I couldn't leave even though I had 100 Outdoorsman… I kept walking into random Yakuza bandits or WOLVES. WHY ARE THERE PACKS OF WOLVES or UP TO 10 YAKUZAS JUST RANDOMLY HANGING OUT OUTSIDE THE TOWN!?
WELCOME TO FALLOUT 2, WHERE NO ONE HAS ANYTHING TO DO, SO THEY JUST STAND AROUND EMPTY BUILDINGS WAITING TO SURROUND YOU, BECAUSE THEY GET TWO TURNS, CUZ THEY HAVE HIGHER… FREAKING… SEQUENCE!
