Bandit Jesus 2.0
On forum: 04/28/2014
Nah, there's plenty to do. Traders have your usual assortment of item acquisition, assassination, and camp elimination missions. Plus random NPCs also have basic quests as well. And there are stashes to activate (which can be achieved through a fairly novel bit of gameplay), along with the basic framework of a main mission thread (get the psi-helmet, deactivate the Brain Scorcher).|
But the A-Life is the best part. It's truly unpredictable, and you'll often find yourself confronted by enemy factions and almost any type of mutant at any point along your travels. Playing as a bandit I would start at the base in the Dark Valley, and just in that level alone I battled with nearly every faction and mutant type on a semi-regular basis (though some more than others as dictated by the general spawns of the levels, meaning that it's not too random). And the difficulty levels have been tweaked a bit so that Master is slightly harder, which makes survival all the more thrilling (and I hear that the lower difficulties have also been balanced to the point of actually being worthwhile).
Altogether it makes for a freeplay experience that easily tops anything that can be found in any of the base games. Plus it's a standalone install, so you wouldn't have to worry about disrupting any of your ongoing games. It's definitely at least worth checking out.
