Fallout Trilogy

Post by Hoppyhead on Mon Mar 10, 2014 9:18 pm

A while back ago I picked up The Fallout Trilogy at a great price.
It is a PC DVD-ROM wtih Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics on it.


I play them every now and then. Not used to turn based fighting since I am more used to Fallout 3/New Vegas.
But the story and history with these games make them fun.

Anyone else picked this up and plays the Originals?

Oh yes, I refer to the originals often for inspiration and reference. I still have the original discs for them, but you can pick 'em up on GOG.com for cheap (for folks that don't already have them). They even had a weekend event where they were giving them away free.

I picked them up on GOG when they were free that weekend. I'm really enjoying Fallout Tactics, the turn-based real time hybrid game play is pretty fun. Fallout 1 and 2 are really fun too. The best part about these games is the subtle humour that gets thrown in every once in a while. It's unfortunate they were pulled from the GOG catalog.

They were? I wonder if it might have to do with the rights for distribution reverting or changing hands after a specific date or something. It might be that they've "returned" to Bethesda/Zenimax now.

The article can be read here:http://www.gog.com/news/removed_from_catalog_fallout_1_2_tactics.

The fact that Bethesda owns rights to these games now seems to be the case. They still sell the games on DVD as far as I know but on the other hand they seem to be pulled from steam as well; the store pages for the trilogy are still there but there is no option to purchase any of them. I hope they are put back up in the future.  Sad

Yeah, they might have their own plans for future distribution of those games or just want to feel powerful.

Greed.... Greed never Changes. Sad to see them go out of availability on GOG.

Hmmm sad that happens. Hopefully they will make them available again.

As roflcopter117 said The Fallout Tactics game is really fun. I enjoy it.

And yeah the humor is great. I have that same sense of humor with movie references and such. To me they are like mini Easter Eggs, when I get a joke. I'm like Ha! I get that reference! XD

I remember playing those awhile back, truly great games. If only they made another spin off with them, that would be great.

I got my triology from "gog.com" and the difficulty of "Fallout 1" and my bad luck really get me every time I play it (example: Vault dweller finally comes out of the cave and starts to explore the wasteland. First enemy I find is a Radscorpion and my only weapon is a pistol... )

I've been playing Fallout since it was released. Some people are Star Wars nerds, some are Star Trek nerds. I'm a Fallout nerd. I'm even making a mod that brings Fallout 3 - and to a lesser extent, NV - more in line with the story of the older titles through Tale of Two Wastelands.

I played the original fallout a little bit after FO3 came out, but my short attention-span didn't let me make it past the initial cave rats. Picked it and Fallout 2 up during the GOG free event, and beat it. I never realized how many references there were to the original games in NV.

From everything I've heard, bethesda is working on getting the originals back up on steam. Don't have source for that though.

I hope so. Lost my GOG downloads of the original games when I had to factory-reset my CPU.

If you own them from GOG you can redownload from there.

I've played Fallout 1 quite a bit, but I've still not actually finished the game.

I'm just really hostile towards time limits, even lenient ones like FO1 has.
