I'd say play Fallout 3 first, then New Vegas.  After playing New Vegas so extensively I actually find it hard to play 3 anymore, the small changes they made really improved the game.

Play Fo3 first then NV, Fallout 3 has a better feeling to it and I'd say a better map to it, but New Vegas has a better mechanics and honestly better DLC, both are amazing games regardless.

i prefer new vegas personally. the dlc's are actually connected in some way (i'll let you find out) plus you can craft much more, make your own food, purify your own water, reload ammo, recycle energy weapon ammo, flamer fuel, all kinds of cool ****.

plus there's a hardcore mode that makes it so ammo has weight, you need to eat, drink water, and sleep periodically.

oh yeah and some enemies are harder, like the deathclaws.

and let's not forget the cazadores, the pack hunting giant asshole wasps from hell

I prefer fallot 3 over new vegas mainly because it was a lot easier for new players to the fallout series whereas New Vegas is hard for those not familiar with all the special ammo making stuff and all that I'd say start with fallout 3 and after awhile switch to New vegas they're both excellent games but New Vegas is more focused around the storyline and DLCs while fallout 3 the storyline isn't as important and is more action packed since it has random encounters and such also though don't expect too much of the DLCs some are nice but they mostly have nothing to do with the main story line at all they just mainly let you get new weapons and items

It depends really, although I love Fallout 3 and believe it looks and feels more like a fallout game than New Vegas, the gameplay is very poorly balanced and has vastly less to do than New Vegas.

As for New Vegas I love because it has much better balanced gameplay and a lot more content, plus the I find the story vastly more interesting, the only problem is is that its environments are a bit more boring than 3 and it is vastly more unstable than 3.

In the end these are just my opinions, and I would actually recommend both since they are both amazing games.

>Feels more like a fallout game

I disagree, I prefer New Vegas over 3 simply because the environment felt better and the story felt better written. 3 felt like the bombs just dropped even though it literally has been 200 years since then.

I still enjoy them both but 3 doesn't feel like a Fallout game to me. That's just my opinion.

I would say Fallout 3 first, its a good way to get into the modern fallout feel. Oh, and while this may be a bit obvious but make sure you get the Game of the Year edition of Fallout 3 and Ultimate Edition of New Vegas, they may cost a bit more than the base versions but with the extra DLC they add hours of gameplay.

Fallout 3 was such a great game... It had so much charm. Sadly, New Vegas didn't add anything new for me but I still enjoyed it. Mothership Zeta was amazing. I wish I could go back in time and relive Fallout 3 GOTY over and over for the first time again.

I really only liked Old World blues, Honest Hearts was really just meh. I never cared for Cesar's legion or their lore very much Well, Cesar himself was kind of interesting but I rest my case. . Lonesome Road just didn't make any sense to me, I should probably replay it again and do some more research so I'm not saying it's bad I just didn't get it. Dead Money was just terrible, incredibly boring and frustrating. Keep in mind this is just my opinion and that I don't think New Vegas is a bad game, in fact I think it's really good! I just don't think the DLC matched up to the standard of Fallout 3.

That's really interesting to me, because I felt like New Vegas had a more solid DLC experience. Of course, I looked into the lore A LOT, and I watched really carefully for the way everything connected A LOT, so for me the real kicker was seeing how these seemingly un related journeys all came together and solidified the plot in a way that was really impressive.

I guess the real difference is probably just the fact that the lore around New Vegas still fascinates me to this day. That said, Fallout 3 is more fun than a barrel of monkeys in its own right, and when I get around to playing it in its heavily modded form soon, I shall bask in its undying glory.

I see where you're coming from. I'm just more interested in the Vault Tec lore and pre war stuff, the New Vegas tribes and such don't really peak my interest. I hope they can really make a solid combination of what's good in Vegas, and 3 to make a truly epic game that serves the franchise justice.

That's how I'm feeling too. I think I need to really revisit Fo3 so I can better appreciate it, now that I have a more complete understanding of the fallout universe. I mean, they have some phenomenal ingredients to work with right now. The more they can make the past of the universe tie into the present of the game, the better it will be.

Here's a Fallout fun fact: the logo of the guy giving a thumbs up isn't a typical thumbs up.
It was taught that you could gauge the distance of a nuclear explosion based on its size compared to your outstretched thumb. Thus helping you determine how far you still had to travel to escape fallout radius. So when you see the logo, he's not giving you encouragement, he's trying to see how far away the latest explosion was.

Hexa-core processors are clearly the best way to go. With 12 threads for task management, what more could you ask for?

I read the comment entirely wrong. I figured he had more than two processors :/ I have no idea how I did that, since 2 is the maximum as far as I'm concerned.

Still doesn't make any sense, though. Mine's quad core with double threading, and I can still run FO3 fine.
#75 to #74 - Mortuus

(02/12/2014) [-]
There are quite literally no currently manufactured single-core processors. Dual-core, Quad-core, Hexa-core, and octa-core processors are the only chips being manufactured.
As for more than one physical processor, that's for a server board. If you're gaming on a server, look at your life and see where you went wrong.

As for threading, games will almost never utilize the hyper-threading. Threads simply hold "stuff" for the actual cores to process. In games, threading would likely slow you down and cause issues, overall. Hyper-threading is for editing and not a helluva lot else.

"Open up the fallout.ini file in: My Documents\My Games\Fallout3
Find the line:
bUseThreadedAI=0
change it to:
bUseThreadedAI=1
Add another line after it and insert:
iNumHWThreads=2
This will limit the game to 2 cores and prevent the engine bug from causing the game to freeze."

Mess around with this.

Like, there is so much HP stacking it's unbareable. I haven't touched F:NV since getting halfway through Old World Blues, nor have I touched Fallout 3 after getting into Point Lookout.
