All this hate for Lonesome Road :(
Ulysses is like one of the best characters in all of fallout, all of the references to him in the vanilla game aren't even because they planned him as DLC, despite all of the DLC being sort of based around him, they're there because he was supposed to be a follower in the vanilla game that was removed last minute.

Playing through the DLC actually made me feel more as if it was all based on his story more than the couriers story, as it's usually supposed to be, the courier was just this coincidentally significant person in his life, not the other way around. His character made the player realise that they're not the only one who's important and especially that they're not the only ones who can change things.

Am I the only one who likes Fallout 2 best? Its a great CRPG that is simultaneously silly and dark. Yes you can find a crashed space shuttle from star trek, yes you can beat up Arthurs knights to steal the holy hand grenade, yes you can prank call the Enclave, but you can also become a pr0n star, deal with racist cities, kill complete monsters, and a lot of other messed up stuff. FNV was closest to it in tone, but it still took itself too seriously and not seriously enough at the same time. Old world blues is the true successor to Fallout 2 IMHO, as it had a lighthearted yet fucked up tone, and had me laughing the ENTIRE time. That first 15 minute long conversation is my favorite chunk of dialog in any of the games.
Thanks Peri for making me question muh sexualities once again.

Actually due to how AMERICAN football is he is probably chucking them like FOOTBALLS.
I never thought about it that way, but now that you mention it, yes. He is tossing them around like FOOT bawls. I was never much into sports.

I liked fallout 2. I could never get too far into it because there was so much to do and I couldn't decide where to start.

Lonesome Road is the only DLC I was able to play before my PC broke. I love the setting a lot.

I guess I must be the only one who thought lonesome road was absolute trash then. I hate not having context for the things im being blamed for. I can understand in a story sense maybe I forget because of a serious case of bullet to the brain but at the same time I don't recall memory loss being one of the main characters symptoms, maybe I just wasn't paying attention though and missed that bit.

Oh yeah, I remember back when I was throwing together houses in the construction set for myself, I found out that a bunch of the assets for fallout 3 are included as part of FNV assets. srsly. NPCs too. none of the dialogue option were there, but you could totally insert sarah lyons into the mohave wastes.

Actually the amnesia is a major symptom of the character, it was done to allow as much backstory to be inventible by the player as possible, obviously a few backstory things were kind of hard to ignore, such as you being a courier, but the vast majority is left open due to the amnesia, which explains why you obviously have no idea who Ulysses is or what he's on about the entire time.

As much as I enjoy his character he was quite confusing the first time around, but I think part of that is because he's just a little bit mad.

I should just play through it a second time. I know I enjoyed honest hearts a bit better the second go through.

Lonesome Road does need maybe a second or third play through to really enjoy it.
If you want to truly appreciate Lonesome Road as well as the other three DLCs you need to hunt around the entire Divide and find every little bit of lore left lying around, plus the holotapes let you listen to that amazing voice Ulysses has.

I like a lot of the couriers snarks. Like the one in the OC.

Also his brain is english. And that's bada$$

He has also been pretty much EVERYWHERE. He's been to New Reno, Vault City, Fort Abandon, and Circle Junction!

Yes, the courier is 1000 times more bada$$ then the Lone Wanderer.

Also what are your guy's favorite quotes.

I've never questioned why your brain is English actually, that makes pretty much zero sense.
UNLESS THE COURIER IS SECRETLY BRITISH AND DOESNT REMEMBER BECAUSE AMNESIA!

Maybe the courier IS english!

We just can't tell because we can't really tell by his grunts.

He doesn't know where he was born too!

Courier confirmed for being an Englishman.

When you consider a lot of the snarky and sarcastic responses you can make to certain characters, it's looking more likely that the courier is English.

I'm hoping that somewhere in the dialogue for the courier was 'bollocks' because that's undeniably British

 Ha, the courier is the most English englishman.

What are your guy's favorite quotes from the series.

Mine is from fallout 3

From a scale from one to ten it's a "Shut the fck up and fix me"

Its more in the way its said and less about what he is actually saying. It has the same sort of feel as "pfft. lol. What is this shit? Get this trash out of my way, fucking plebs." and then he breaks it.

Hey guys I just watched the latest thing on Fallout 4 HERE'S ALL THE EXCITING CHANGES THAT I STOLE FROM SOME DUDE'S SUMMARY ON REDDIT:

Quote from: some dude on Reddit
No new gameplay videos, it's just them talking over the occasional backdrop of cut scenes from the existing trailers and/or Fallout 3 gameplay.

Game handles large scale, multi party combat much better than before, especially with VATS.

Skill system appears to be gone, replaced with a perk system that is based around your SPECIAL stats instead. Each point of stat unlocks a different perk, so if you start with ten Strength, for example, you can potentially take even the last Strength based perk right at the start.

Looting corpses is more streamlined, you seem to be able to mouse over them and see their contents, instead of interacting with them like a container.

Radial menu for weapon equips. Hooray for consoles, aids for PC, as always.

Dog will loot stuff for you.

Can shoot off limbs of feral ghouls, including legs, and they will crawl at you like typical zombie game style enemies.

Brotherhood of Steel is confirmed to be a potential friendly faction, mentioned that the player can "call in backup" from friendly factions.

Protagonist will self narrate while walking around the gameworld, similarly to Witcher 3.

Radiation in the game no longer works like in previous games. Instead of taking away from your stats, it now works exactly like it does in Fallout Shelter, where it takes away from your maximum health on your health bar.

Melee has critical hit animations, mentioned was hitting someone in the nuts to knock them down, then bashing their head with a baseball bat while they are on the ground.

Needless to say.... I don't know what to say, because I haven't played it. It'll probably turn out fine, with the modding community probably fixing fucking everything like they usually do. But with Bethesda going on record saying that modding tools won't be out at the start, I may wait for a few months after the hype dies down and see what people say about the game.
