Guys I think we can all agree that Civ V was a terrible insult to the fans and move on to discussing important issues like how many one hundredth scale Deathclaws it would take to kill a one hundred times scale Legate Lanius.

Sleepytime; if you have a high Sneak (and you should), then you can bring it into casinos as a holdout weapon. it also uses 10mm, which is a damned sight more common and less expensive than 12.7mm.

Does the damage of Sleepytime hold up against the 12.7mm in regular fights? There aren't that many casino fights in the game that I'm inclined to pick weapons based on that.

Man, Dead Money was easily one of least enjoyable slogs I've ever encountered. The level design was tedious, the collar and alarms were tedious, the enemies were tedious, the NPCs were entirely unpleasant to deal with, the entire background and story was uninteresting, and the ending made it feel like a complete waste of time. I really can't think of a game or DLC I regret spending time on more than Dead Money. Mass Effect 3 comes the closest.

I'm glad some people liked it but it was basically everything I loathe about games combined into one neat package, no redeeming qualities.

I absolutely loved Dead Money and of the NV DLC it's probably the one I enjoy re-playing the most (the least being Honest Hearts).

Ugh, I'm having a really obnoxious issue with Honest Hearts- the Survivalist's Rifle and accompanying ammunition is missing. And I can't find it on any dead White Legs nearby, after two tries from a pretty old quicksave. Basically what I think happened is this: yesterday or the day before I had passed that area of the map and a White Leg dude picked that stuff up, and later in that session Follows-Chalk died in combat. Shortly before or after (I think after) loading an earlier save, my game crashed. Anyway, I'd been playing from the earlier save, but maybe the fact that the rifle was missing from the pack somehow carried over?

Last time I played Honest Hearts, Walking Cloud picked the Survivalist's Rifle up and I didn't realize until almost the end of the DLC.

You can easily finish Dead Money with a totally new character, the weapons and companions you pick up there are more than enough to deal with the fairly fragile enemies even with 0 combat skills. To get the absolute best ending I think you need quite high speech, to get the most out of looting you would want maxed lockpick/science. To get probably the second most valuable bit of loot from Dead Money you will want 7+ luck (and you can't bring in any +Luck items and there are no +Luck items in the DLC). The most valuable bit of loot you get given immediately when you start.

Man, those enemies in Dead Money would gently caress you up if you didn't have decent combat skills. Especially the guys with gas bombs. The stretches where you can rely on Dog or Dean to kill everyone are comparatively small compared to the stretches where you're all alone.

I usually use Christine to kill all the baddies when you can take a follower, then when I'm by myself either the Holorifle or the Police Pistol will kill any of the enemies with at most three up close VATS headshots. You don't need good combat skills to make VATS shots right up close. The thing that always made them seem approachable to me as a new character is a) they never appear in large groups, b) they don't use guns or energy weapons, c) they don't really have armor, and d) they shamble around in stops and starts.

You have to break the bank at the Sierra Madre to even get the recipe to turn those vouchers in. That's actually exactly what I was talking about, although whether or not it's worth it to turn your chips from the DLC in for Pre-War Money is kind of debatable I think, since you can only get the 10 caps per stack if you have max barter.

Sleepy Owl posted:

So I just finished my second run of Dead Money, and it was really easy this time. I went in at level 10 specializing in unarmed and explosives, and every fight was trivial. The bear trap fist can more or less kill a ghost man in one VATS round, and there's no need to worry about ammo, or even repairs since Trappers are so common. And of course, gas bombs wreck everything.

I missed a lot of skill checks, though. I gained enough levels to get lockpicking and science to 75 and speech to 85, but there were still a lot dialogue options that I missed. Also, my perception was 3 so I couldn't understand anything Christine was trying to say.

Anyway, I'm at the villa gate now. Anyone have a checklist of things I should get before I leave?

Also, what happens if you get to the vault but none of your skills are high enough to make Elijah come down?

He just randomly says he's going to come down after you say you'll wait for him. I think there must have been some last minute change that wasn't fully vetted before they released Dead Money, because that dialogue has never made sense to me.

Obsidian could have cut out the entire second stage of the quest and I don't think the game would lose anything from it. I also think they could have put two of the dead paladins in more interesting spots than "just outside Hidden Valley" and "just outside Nellis".

I honestly do kinda wish there were some way to finish that quest without as much running around. I thought it was pretty cool the first time I was able to start 'Still in the Dark' at like Level 3 (as well as haul out a suit of stolen power armor and a super sledge for Raul, essentially making him even more unstoppable) just by being willing to poke into high level areas and using some tricks. It even kinda makes more sense that way, because the areas McNamara sends you to can all be accessed early on.

The trouble with finishing it is that you have to explore, what, every vault in the game? And there's no way to bypass it, with skill checks or otherwise. And man, gently caress some of those vaults. Each one is a quest in and of itself, they're all long as hell, and most are filled with monsters that will even ruin your poo poo at high level. The only one vault gives you an easy pseudo-workaround is the plant-overgrown vault, which is good because it's the worst one.

I can kind of respect the way like six different quests send you to the radioactive vault, but most of these are endgame quests and it makes sense. 'Still in the Dark' doesn't really work as an endgame quest because every faction you join strongly encourages you to kill off the Brotherhood, and of the two where you don't actually have to, it's still the best option in one case (Yes Man).

I'm all for additional content, but there's not multiple solutions to 'Still in the Dark.' You can either complete it by doing everything in the specific way you're supposed to (finding the dead patrols, talking to the scouts, and getting all the vault equipment) or fail it by killing everyone or putting the fascist in charge.

I've never minded this quest being difficult to do at low level. After this one you just have to a pretty trivial quest and then blammo power armor. The only bit that is really difficult at low level is Vault 34 (the Nellis AFB artillery is just poorly implemented IMO, and you have to do it anyway for other quests so eh), because for some reason the ghouls inside the vault just will not die, and some of them are sorcerers.

Reasons I recommend hardcore mode:
- Companions no longer invincible (especially important for Dead Money, invincible companions here seems especially stupid)
- Stimpacks have weight.
- Ammo has weight.
- Food/Water/Sleep pressure give you a reason to set up a base and return there periodically which breaks up the fast travel jet-setting.
- Lots of items which were useless become useful (Nuka-cola, Sunset Sarsaparilla, water, food).

Also I know this isn't the mod thread but JSawyer's mod and PN both are really good for rebalancing hardcore mode to make it more interesting. I play with both on.

I don't need or want to know what they are, but should I be expecting any useful energy weapons in The Lonesome Road? I played it 1/3 or 1/2 way through when it first came out, and am only finally getting around to playing it all the way through now. The flare gun and arc welder are disappointing, to say the least. Luckily I do have 100 explosives as well on this character, so getting some good mileage out of Red Glare

I just finished Lonesome Road for the first time, and holy hell did I get tired of Ulysses quickly. I remember people talking about how interesting the dialog was , but it seemed like it was just a bunch of overly vague monologues that never got to the point, and the mediocre acting didn't help.

Plus I didn't dig the setting. Lots of rubble and linear paths reminded me of FO3. Also, I never understood the scattered warhead thing. Were they supposed to be full on nukes, or were you just blowing up high explosives left in the warhead or something? I've always been a bit peeved how nuclear detonations have been trivialized in Bethesda-era Fallout.

I definitely would appreciate something fresher than red-colored ghouls wearing mashed up legion/NCR armor. Even if they were Omega Man style albino ghouls with black robes, that would have been pretty awesome.

The divide is plagued by heavy dust storms that can skin you alive. The same cataclysm that caused the NCR and Legion troops that were there to become irradiated and turn into ghouls also caused them to be exposed to these dust storms. So you have these beings who've suffered pain and injuries that should have killed them outright, but were sustained by their new radioactive healing factor. They're still in constant pain because their skin was seared off; that's why they're red. They also live in awesome little cinder-block tents.

It really sucks that you can't craft 25mm grenades when you can craft rockets and so many kinds of hand held explosives. My favorite explosives weapon is probably Red Glare but for some reason when I tried to use it on Legate Lanius it did gently caress all damage. Entire HE rocket magazine to his face took about 1/4 of his health.

Veronica has nothing to do with Power Armor Training beyond bypassing the Brotherhood of Steel's introductory quest to get rid of a Ranger in Hidden Valley.

Also you don't have to wait for ED-E to get hacked by Lorenzo and/or lockpick a Very Hard door and/or advance the plot to the point where you have to make contact with the BoS. Grabbing Veronica is definitely less effort than those things.

Yeah, if you know what you're doing you can pretty much gain access immediately, just have to kill some scorpions and run from some centaurs.

The only tricky thing is taking out that NCR ranger around Level 2-3, because it's unlikely you'll be able to take him in a straight fight or pass the speech check. I've taken to planting dynamite on him, but it feels kinda lame because it's basically save-scumming to both successfully plant it and not get blown the gently caress up in the process.

Veronica is still easier than that. Goodsprings -> Neil's Shack -> 188 Trading Post -> [Fast Travel] Neil's Shack -> Hidden Valley. Takes maybe 10 minutes, no skill checks, no savescumming, no fighting.

Apparently I didn't pay much attention on previous playthroughs. When I got to Nipton my brain firmly reminded me that the town was completely bereft of anything useful to the cause, but I had a pleasant surprise when I bothered to explore every house. The same thing happened at REPCONN--no worries about scrounging for ammo now.

One thing I love about TES/FO games is how well the local map obfuscates multilayered levels while still being useful. Some people hate it but I think it adds a good element to exploration.

I'd like to make a complete runthrough of the FO games at some point; how often do package deals on GoG/Steam come around? I need to buy everything again from Fallout on so I can get working Win7 FO/FO2 versions as well as all the DLC for FO3/FNV. I got burned by horse armor but I'm willing to bend my stiff necked principles because this is Fallout and I hear most of the FO3/FNV add-on content is pretty well done.

Otherwise, I have the FO/FO2 cds and it might be worth my time to get them working in dosbox, particularly since I also need to install and complete PS:T and System Shock 2. (My RPG backlog is majestic.)

Put it this way: when I do playthroughs of FO: NV I always run through all of the DLCs (exception being Lonesome Road, and to a lesser extent OWB, because it didn't exist while I was doing the bulk of my playing) but I will usually only pick and choose bits of the base game to play. This may not be a popular sentiment but I think basically each DLC had about as much to say as the entire base game, just boiled down into a much more succinct package.

The best bits of FO3 were DLC, but not all of the FO3 DLC were worth playing.

The tunnelers did indeed feel very off to me. The monster design seems quite swarmy and squishy but the things seem to be at least as tough as Deathclaws and hit like trucks. Shooting them with the flare gun is a blast but ultimately kind of pointless since they take so much effort to kill.

Not at the beginning it isn't. In FO3, you can leave the Vault and walk anywhere and not run into problems. While you can do that in FNV, its a lot harder, and you'll feel like you're forced to do the plot more. Unless you know what you're doing, FNV feels more on rails until you hit Vegas, and then it opens wide up, whereas FO3 never loses that roaming quality.

Did you forget the part where you are physically stuck inside the vault for several quests (how long does this take the first time, I forget, maybe 30-60 minutes?). In NV you can run off the instant your character is created.

I think this really sums up why I couldn't get into FNV until my 3rd try whereas I could get into 3 without issues. Only after knowing abit about the game could I actually play it without feeling like there was nothing of significance to explore and anything of substance that you did find always left you feeling like you skipped an important phase and broke something. I mean it's still like that, if you do something you're not supposed to you're more likely to break something rather than end up with any advantage. Hell, I did it again on my current playthrough. I'd never taken Veronica before, and guess what! If you get the ARCHIMEDES rangefinder before the quest tells you to you'll gently caress things up so hard it'll take some consolefuckery to fix. Fallout 3 by comparison always felt stable, wholesome, polished and open. It's just everything else where FNV pulls the long straw. The way I feel about it in the long run is Fallout 3 is an Elder Scrolls game whereas New Vegas is a Fallout game.

There are two other ways to finish that quest, no need for using the console. That's such an insignificant bug.

What happened was having the rangefinder caused the scene with turning in the rangefinder to happen the very first time I take Veronica to see the elder. From this moment on the fact I had the rangefinder was never recognized again. When I went to the comm shack, Veronica asked me what I want to go get. Selecting the rangefinder option caused an infinite conversation loop. Eventually I just said gently caress it, and did the farming data instead. But lo and behold, bringing that to the elder didn't do jack poo poo and neither Veronica or the Elder had anything to say. I tried half a dozen fixes and the only thing that worked was using the console to force the conversation to happen. I still agree that it's an insignificant bug because Veronica's quest is insignificant in itself.

Fair enough, that sounds pretty bad.
