Just marathoned Fallout 1 and 2 WHY ISNT NEW VEGAS OUT YET!?

I went chronologically with fallout 1. HOLLE SHAZBOT what a ride. Now the problem is that I didn't create my own character and picked albert. 
 
Best and worst thing I ever done. Since his charisma I talked my way out of so many things it was HILARIOUS. 
 
For example the necropolis water pump was being guarded by super mutants. I thought I could sneak by but was caught. So the big ugly bastard says ARE YOU A GHOUL? and Im like lol of course Im a friggin ghoul you dummy lol yeesh heh. oh ok but if you see one tell me... cool as fucking ice man. 
 
Can you do that in Halo LOL NO freakin meatheads. 
 
Combat isnt that big of a deal until you get power armor then you become a METAL COVERED GOD OH LORDY YES! Being able to wade through gunfire? Yes please with a side of turbo plasma fire and a laser minigun to boot.
 
And since I had high int and charisma I was loaded with freaking caps and could buy all the stat boosts from the brotherhood CHA CHING! 
 
 In fallout 1 companions are kinda worthless until the end. OH WOW IAN THANKS FOR GETTING CRITTED FOR 300 DAMAGE FROM A MINIGUN AGAIN I APPRECIATE IT. 
 
Freaking pack mules man thats all they were to me don't wanna get emotionally attached... OH GOD IAN WHY!? 
 
In short Fucking deathclaws I had to turn into a crackhead just to kill their mommyo! GOt To loVe ThAt PsYchO MmMmMm.
 
Now Fallout 2 is everything in fallout 1 except BETTER for the most part. You get more companions that level up and more weapons and armor.More towns with more quests its all good. It was partially made by chris avellone whos also working on NEW VEGAS so it'll be at least a million times better than fallout 3 hopefully. 
 
They kinda throw you out into the wasteland and you have to kinda grind a bit in the beginning to be able to do some more stuff but when the ball gets rolling and you get levels thats what im talking about. 
 
This time around I made a meathead COMBAT CHARACTER to balance out my fallout 1 run. 
 
I HOPE YOU LIKE LOADING SCREENS cause I sure as hell didn't. But then I got lucky with a caravan encounter and found some better guns then I just hid behind a wagon until the guards mopped the raiders up or all the guards die then its oh dang did he see me oh damn TO THE EDGE OF THE SCREEN AHHH!   
 
The companions are way better for the most part but you have to PRAY they survive the end game. Of course never giving them any stimpacks didn't help too. 
 
Oh man I'm hurting gimme some stimpacks bro NO TOUCH PRECIOUS DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW EXPENSIVE THESE FUCKING THINGS ARE!??? walk it off yeesh. 
 
I had three guys with me the entire game pretty much sir bone in da nose who I call Mr Zulu master marcus the surper mutant and Lord Lenny the ghoul. 
 
Guess who live until the very end go ahead guess... No I wasn't marcus He died to a enclave minigun crit fucking miniguns. Nope it wasnt mr zulu he died due to fucking retard AI who COULDNT WALK AWAY FROM THE ELECTRIFIED FLOOR GOD DAMN IT MR ZULU WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!!! He had a super sledge that hit like a truck and had power armor too. That one hit me real hard but guess who survived all the way to the very ending. 
 
MOTHER FUCKING GHOULLY ASS LENNY THATS WHO BITCHES. This guy could move for shit but he was built like a fucking TANK. 200 hp at least and I once saw him crit a deathclaw jesus christ lenny they had a family. He survived the gauntlet and hilariously said I cant believe I lived this long. Cause Youre a fucking BEAST thats why lenny. Hes suppose to be a docter my ass give him a .223 pistol and hes fucking set. Could of gave him a gauss pistol but Im quite the wasteland money grubber.  

Regarding bosses Fallout 1 had more options either talking him out of creating a mutant army or killing him. Due to being mr charisma I had to talk him out of it.  
 
WHAT A FUCKING MESS I had 40 Hp and only had 2 minutes to escape I think. I run my fat metal ass ( they put too much work into the butts of the power armor god its burned into my brain) to the exit but the two guards AGGRO ME along with all the MUTANTS IN THE CAVERNS. I didn't know about wearing a followers robe to sneak out so SCREW ME. After a billion reloads I somehow crit the two guards and Kill all the mutants with only 2 stimpacks left. fucking love those things.  
 
Problem is I only had 45 seconds left AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH RUN METAL CHUNKY MAN RUN! 
 
with only 5 seconds left I Just Reached the edge of the screen and exited to watch that sucker blow sky high. 
 
Now my Fallout 2 ending was just as jacked up oh god what a disaster. 
 
I had more stimpacks but not that many after mowing down everyone below deck including the vice president TAKE THAT MR PRESIDENT! Lenny survived the companion meat grinder known as the end game so he deserves a fucking medal. I just figured out how to destroy the mainframe. You have to blow it up with dynamite. How about overclocking it until it overheats and blow ever think about that. that was one of the problems how linear the end game became unlike the first one.  
 
I had to read it up cause I had school tomorrow and it was 6 in the morning DAMN YOU FALLOUT. 
 
So I blow it up and talk to the guy and do all the junk right. Well since I killed the president I went back and lethalized the sentry guns at the top for some reason heh heh heh. I go back after blowing the mainframe and have to fight frank horrigan. You cant tell him to commit suicide like the master aw shucks gotta do this the HARD AND MESSY WAY! 
 
Heres the thing though DO NOT BRING ENERGY WEAPONS AGAINST POWER ARMOR it pretty much negates most of the damage only normal weapons do enough damage but it gets negated by half so thats not much unless ITS THE MOTHER FUCKING GAUSS RIFLE OH HELLS YES. 
 
Aim that sucker at the eyes and its clear sailings and crits as far as the eye can see and frank horrigan did see many crits IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. 
 
I start wailing away at his eye balls and lenny kinda helps too. The sentries did most of the work but something hilarious happened.  
 
Horrigan runs out of ammo since he used it up on the sentries and starts meleeing me. I get a extra lucky crit before being knocked to the ground. Lenny the poor bastard can barely do anything to the big brute. So there I was knocked to the ground either praying to god that he misses or preparing to see another loading screen oh boy those friggin bones how I love them. 
 
After I go down it was the sentry guns turn of combat.  
 
SENTRY GUN CRIT FOR THE FUCKING WIN! the bosses deaths are so brutal and bloody yeesh. 
 
But then something tragic happened... 
 
Crit sentry turn and fired on me. Since I reprioritized  the guns to attack the greatest threat and horrigan was dead I was next on the list... 
 
I had to put the old girl down It was like old yeller but now it was old sentry OH LORD! 
 
I give it a couple of gauss shot and down it went and ran the hell outta there along with lenny back on the boat and escaped. 
 
Now thats how you make a fucking video game. 
 
Also with a couple of the fallout 2 team working on new vegas it'll be even more fallouty than fallout 3 ever was. 
 
One more month OH GOD DAMN I CAN'T WAIT HURRY UP!

Amazing story Mr. Bongos. 
 
I tried to play through both Fallout 1 and 2 but failed miserably, just found it way to clunky and I didn't know what I was doing for the majority of the time I spent with the games. I could definitely see their charm though, hopefully some of that shines through in New Vegas.

You can't see them, but I'm crying tears of joy.
 
 

PS: You can also talk the enclave soldiers into fightng Horrigan in addition to the turrets.
