Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

I am running about 5 different games of Fallout: New Vegas at the same time, all with different characters and skillsets. Despite that, none of them have made it to New Vegas itself yet.

Can't tell if doing it right.

In any case, my main thing I'm doing in New Vegas is cutting down on the hoarding problem I get in every game I play ever. I don't need 200 something pounds of guns and clothes.

I think the quality of the game in regard to New Vegas declines steeply when you actually get to NV, personally.

Kantai Collection is a thing ._.
Let's show that private threads still aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on the island in V6. If I started a thread in-game, you are welcome to join it.

I'm a huge Mass Effect fan, but the ending of the 3rd game is...problematic. I'll let you decide what you think.

Them's fighting words. I love the "courier thrown in WAY OVER HIS/HER FUCKING HEAD HOLY SHIT WHO ARE ALL THESE FACTIONS GIANT ARMY OF LIBERTARIAN ROBOTS, BITCHES" part of the story.

Though I could see why it would suck if you don't put in shitloads of time to do all the sidequests because at that point the game really does go "just fuckin' meet everyone. Or don't. I don't care.".

Oof, the ending. Not really series ruining, or even really game ruining (despite what the "hardcore" fans will tell you), but definitely a really bad way to end all of it.

At the same time, Indoctrination Theory manages to be an even bigger load of BS, IMO.

Just download the Extended Cut DLC. The Epilogue cinematics turn the endings from "horseshit" to "actually really good".

Then play Citadel.

I wouldn't go as far as "actually really good", but still a lot better.

Also YES OMG CITADEL IT'S THE BEST THING OF ALL EVER.

One of these days I'll get back into Rock Band. I'm one of those guys who was all "Yeah, beaten Jordan and TTFAF on expert, I'll take anything you throw at me, blah blah blah."

Rock Band's currently broken me with "Guitars Suck", though.

Personally, I feel the opposite. To me, the story didn't really become interesting or engaging until the New Vegas portion. The towns on the way to the city didn't really interest me, and the slog through the meandering path on the way to Freeside is what really decreases the replay value in my opinion. Sure, I'd like to be able to try out every possible faction and stat/weapon combinations, but it just isn't worth having to spend a couple hours completing the sidequests on the way to the main story. It would feel like cheating to skip them, but at the same time, I can't bring myself to push through them for the fourth, even though I still haven't played through the House ending.
