Ploughing through all the DLC and some new mods now, and I got to say I still love this game.

Though the collar mechanics in Dead Money got old in five minutes.

I'm seriously pumped to play the other three DLC though. My only ah, problem with the new Mods as all the female freaks have the dirty tanned freak dude head on them.

Favourite perk of the moment, Sneering Imperialist. That art might be a new avatar at some point for me.

Shame there is no Mod for the uniform though.

I got to Vault 22 last night. gently caress that place so hard!

I also was originally planing to not take any companions and just be a loner. But I recruited Cass to hand over the Energy Weapon dealers in Freeside and I just couldn't do it. So I guess I'm stuck with her.

You know, you can work with Cass to set up the guys at the Silver Rush and take them down too right? Do so.

And all that laser gun booty is yours!

Kinda sad how your Honest Hearts Companions don't turn up again when you leave too. I got attached to Dino and Dog.

I'm gonna get the GUNZ DLC simply because I got the spare change for it. I'm kind of hoping though they'd do a loose ends minor quest DLC that continues the game after the main storyline for a few more missions and just a general look on how your choices turned out for the Mojave.

Doubt it'd happen though.

The Sharpe's series was used as one reference for the artist who made the perk icon (Brian Menze).

Muggy as a companion would be fantastic. No idea how Toaster would work, though. Maybe you could carry him in your inventory and he'd make smart rear end remarks and offer motivational support?

Use him as a melee weapon/crude flame thrower that can be upgraded by Raoul?

Nothing to do with New Vegas but I saw this on Rock Paper Shotgun and had to share it. Not only does Interplay apparently still exist, but they just won the rights from Bethesda to create a Fallout MMO: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/201...ng-fallout-mmo/

Interplay? MMO? What??

There has been a Fallout MMO in the works for at least over a year now.

The more I think about it the more I think Dead Money would have been better if it hadn't been permanently enshrouded in that horrible fog. I thought the setting was really interesting and the story compelling, I just couldn't really enjoy either of them fully because of how muddy everything was all the time.

Somebody should throw up a gas masks or visors mod or something that doesn't make the fog as half bad as it damage wise or something.

I'm quite surprised there wasn't a unique gas mask for DM.

It certainly made fighting the Ghost People more suspenseful but after running around in the villa for several hours I was really hoping for a climate that wasn't "purple and dark."

Also, killing Ghost People got old as there was only two types.

Three, kinda. And speaking of which, I think there was a bug involving the exploding canisters that the one type had. Dean straight up tells you "aim for the canisters and blow them to hell" and even with 100 points into guns and standing right next to them I could not hit the canisters. I tried spraying them with bullets outside of VATS and targeting it from two feet away within VATS and nothing. Miss, miss, miss every time.

Yeah, those tanks are pretty glitchy. I do love the Police Colt though, so I can go TRUE POLICE STORIES on their asses instead.

Three, I think - the ones with the spears, the ones with the bear trap fists, and the ones with the OH GOD EXPLOSION AND NOW I'M ON FIRE

But yeah, I agree that killing the same enemies over and over got a bit old after a while. Definitely could've used some diversity there.

I would have thrown in some Ghouls and some The Master era Super Mutant hold outs, to spice things up.

My best friend is an idiot who still won't play Fallout New Vegas for PC or X-Box 360.

He still is thinking like a fifteen year old and that FF7 (top notch JRPG, but come ON!) is the best RPG ever maaaaan. Weirdest thing is he saw the trailers for this game and got all pumped up then lost interest.

I wish I had a best friend who liked this game as much as me .

I'm trying to make a melee dude but I just can't do it. I tried in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, and now. I can't do it. The temptation to pick up a gun always overpowers me. I did use some console commands to make a guy level 40 and give him the energy swords and all the perks and poo poo and it was pretty fun. I just don't know what it is but that kind of thing seems like a gimmick. I may try lasers, especially now since the GRA added some really cool energy weapons.

I don't know, my playstyle has always been a guns guy. Snipers and shotguns are both hilariously awesome.

Put points in unarmed too, and find Pushy. I had hella fun being a big melee lunk kind of guy. You get all smug in the moments where NPC's attempt to set your weaponless rear end up.

If it makes you feel any better, I bought this game brand new at release prices for a friend of mine who isn't a hardcore gamer but loves pc RPGs (Arcanum is his favorite game ever). He played for about five minutes and then said he was too confused to continue and never even attempted to play it again

This really is depressing, FNV is detailed as gently caress and fun to play and some people don't click. I think my friend isn't too enthusiastic about the optional fifties soundtrack and styling too.

So rope kid do you know how well the DLC sales for FNV are in general numbers wise at all?

Since they pushed out GRA it must mean they are looking into doing one or two more unless all the stuff in GRA was stuff that didn't make it to the final release last year?

I read somewhere that the last guy working on New Vegas moved onto their next project after GRA was released. In other words, if anything is still broken or bugged, it'll never be fixed.

Whatever they do in the next Fallout I honestly hope a different engine is used and if not for the love of God get rid of all of the invisible walls. Fallout 3 didn't have that problem but it's loving ridiculous how many invisible walls there are in New Vegas.

Thanks. I was mostly wondering if you needed massive armour to stand a chance at succeeding in close combat. Incidentally, is there a cheesy stealth armour equivalent in this game? Or if not, how realistic is sneak attacking dudes from melee?

Here is a mod I think you will like. If you can, try and fiddle with the GECK so you can wear the mask and a cowboy hat at the same time.
