Before Fallout 3 came out a guy made a thread about being excited for it and they closed the thread and banned him.

That doesn't have anything to do with the fact that they were 100% right about FO3.

To supplement this, if you happen to have Dead Money be sure to find the Weapon Repair Kit code and Return Cigarette Packs/Cartons codes for the vending machines, then scavenge any and all cigarette packs and cartons you find. You can get a ton of Weapon Repair Kits that way, since apparently everybody in Pre-War times smoked like a chimney.

One of my characters, the one that found the Repair Kit code, has about 50 Weapon Repair Kits now. I could probably get more but I got tired of traveling back to the vending machine to unload cigarettes.

I hoarded like hell during Dead Money, and thanks to the vending machines I have over 150 stimpacks. I don't die anymore unless a few deathclaws eat my face.

The story behind that vault was so cool, I was hoping it would get included in the game some day. I wish there was more of it.

Vault 11 is still my favorite vault to explore. "Walk towards the light."

That vault was superbly presented. I love how that first holotape presents you with a dialog between four/five people, but the conversation doesn't make sense to you since you don't have any context. Then as you progress through the vault and find out what has been going on, you realize they were the last four/five people alive. At first, reading the computers with candidates saying "Don't vote for me! I have a family." was really odd until you figure out the story. Obsidian did such an awesome job with that one.

Having just finished Honest Hearts, I've got to say that the Survivalist's subplot was easily the best part of that DLC.

Is there any reason that Three Mary's is full of trash? I'm wondering if I'm missing something subtle, or if it as simple as the White Legs like collecting junk.

I couldn't imagine playing without hardcore mode. It doesn't make it 'harder' since satisfying those basic needs are trivial, but I can't fathom playing New Vegas with weightless and therefore infinite ammo, and stimpacks that healed instantaneously. I actually wish there was an animation time for using stimpacks or drugs so you have to make the decision during combat if you want to make yourself vulnerable for a few seconds.

What I do when the legion assassins come up is stand still until veronica has punched all their heads off. Spending all of my caps to get it fully repaired for her was well worth the investment.

My biggest problem with all the fallout games are really the vaults? I like the concept and atmosphere and theme of them, but actually navigating them is so horrifically tedious. Every one of them is like a self-contained sewer level from another game with a neat twist that you get over soon enough because there's no landmarks or anything to help navigate.

They aren't that huge, and they are fairly linear. Toughen up cowboy.

What's up with OWB and spawn rates? Just a minute ago I paused my game (pressed escape) and when I unpaused it, two nightstalkers actually spawned right in front of me, five feet away. Is it supposed to be this much?

Also I might be missing something, but I can't seem to upgrade the sink. I've got a couple holodisks for it, but I can't do anything with them. Does the option to upgrade come later in the DLC?

Yeah that happens. Somebody majorly hosed up designing the spawns in OWB, there are way too many and it'll happily drop three lobotomites out of thin air in front of you. Fortunately the rest is awesome so we can overlook it.

This is becoming a problem and I'm running out of ammo for my energy weapons. I brought all my ammo over from the Mojave, too. The Sink vendor doesn't sell any of it, and being forced to run from a group of lobotomites with brush guns is really hurting.

(OWB and HH) Does it ever confirm this later or are the children that eventually formed the tribals in Zion from Big MT? The survivalist logs mention the children saying "you better be nice or the principle is going to get you!" Then when you enter the testing area in x-8, Borous sounds very strict and calls himself the principle."

I think the timed nukes are my favorite because you can just shoot a nuke through a doorway, and step into another room that isn't within line of sight to clear a room out. I find it entertaining that I'm launching nukes five feet away from myself and not getting hurt.

I'd be interested in seeing what's up with the Legion in Arizona. It'd be a pretty good setting that would provide some varied locales while still keeping with the OG Fallout Southwestern US vibe. If they threw in some areas like the Mogollon Rim you could have your lush green forest (it would look a lot like the northwest part of New Vegas where the super mutants have taken over that lodge, I forget the name of it, but larger) and you could also have plenty of open desert wasteland, plus there would be some drop-dead gorgeous scenic vistas.

I would love to see the Legion territory. I was super bummed when I realized that section of the map east of the river isn't explorable.

And for the people wanting another Fallout in [place that wasn't the United States], I wouldn't hold your breath. Fallout is all about American culture and what the 50's thought The Future would look like. If it is set in China, it's a different game. It'd be neat to visit China in a special side quest or something I suppose. Maybe you can hitch a ride there on the Boomer's plane.

Given how the quests with the Institute in FO3 worked, I wouldn't be surprised if they did the New England area for the next Fallout. Especially since civilization apparently has re-developed a ton in that area (somehow?)

That would be definitely be interesting, to see how civilization is reestablishing itself after the tribal phase is over. Still, my Fallout micropenis gets hard at the thought of exploring more nuclear wasteland, Vaults, and ruined cities.

Just finished Lonesome Road, that's all the DLCs down and only Hoover Battle to go. LR was probably my favorite DLC because of the setting and atmosphere. The story, particularly the ending, was frustrating because I didn't quite understand why the two couriers did what they did.

I know Ulysses and your character were couriers before the beginning of the game, and he knew/saw you deliver some kind of device to the Divide. You use it to detonate lots of warheads underground, sundering the earth and killing off some community that wasn't NCR or Legion. Right? Why?

From what I gathered, Ulysses' motives for attempting to nuke NCR/Legion is to start anew, because he saw you do it and realized that one person could change everything. That seems like a hollow reason - "Because you did it, I can do it too, so I'm going to do it." Did I miss something or is at simple as that?

Was it ever hinted about what the civilization in the Divide was, or why you delivered a package that destroyed it? Was it really your home?

LR made me feel like I have terrible reading comprehension problems. I still really enjoyed it. I'm going to be devastated if we never get another Obsidian Fallout game.

I was going for the "dead woman walking" look in the character creator. I've got a mod that gives me weird eyes, so here eyes look like something off of Night of the Living Dead, her skins all greyish and her hair is bright pink.

This is my fuckoff kill everything that annoys me, run through the streets of New Vegas with a chainsaw, gently caress the plot, everyone must die, WHO RUNS BARTER TOWN! game.

Her skin was originally bluish tinted, but in OWB I used the med-doctor to change it to grey.

I had a mod that added swirling tribal tattoos to her, but then I found out that it did it to everyone, so I uninstalled the mod.
