I've been thinking about getting into Fallout 1 and 2 again, as it's been a while since I've last tried them out, and I never got very far in either game. I started playing Fallout 1 yesterday, and I have a few questions for both games: - Are there any advantages to playing with a balanced character, or is it better to run a specialized one? - Are there any "You must have this skill/perk/whatever or else you may as well be doing a challenge run" kind of deals? I know that "Gifted" is called this, but I'm curious if there are any others. - Conversely, are there any skills and perks I should avoid? - How important is charisma and speech in these games? I know that several other games oversell how much you can talk your way out, and I'm curious if Fallout falls into that category, or if those skills actually do something in these games. - How are the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats increased? Do you get another stat every few levels, or are certain events/items the only way to increase them? - Trying to remain spoiler-free, what is the best course of action to obtain the water chip in the first game? - How much ammo do you get for weapons? Is it wise to only use them when you need to, or is it plentiful and you can afford to be a little loose with firearms? - Aside from shooting me in the back (although I quickly found out tricks to avoid that), are there any real advantages to having a partner? - Are there any ways to cheese the final fight in the tutorial area in Fallout 2? The rest of the level is okay, but I remember passing the final test through sheer luck the last time I played, and I'd rather not repeat that. Any general tips and tricks would be much appreciated.
