Yay Gamebryo engine!

How Bethesda still keeps using that rubbish piece of horseshit is incomprehensible.

Just watched Victor (the robot) get ganked by a bunch of Lakelurks. Shit. I wanted to know why he kept following me, but I'm guessing he ain't gonna tell me now...

Creston

That's supposed to happen

For realz? I figured he's working for one of the casino guys who's opposed to Benny.

Hmmm... That seems odd, because if I hadn't been walking there right at that point, he wouldn't have gotten murdered.

I'll resurrect him tonight, see what happens.

Creston
Same thing happened to me, so I'm guessing it must be part of the plan...

I had Boone with me and he killed that LakeLurk, so I don't THINK that is SUPPOSED to happen.....as the conversation is more of the same - and the attitude is that you will see him later.......I will let you know if I do see him later or not....

Victor followed me to Novac, and then a few hours later I was wandering far from any settlement and he approached me out of the blue and initiated the Novac conversation again. GG.

Still only a few hours of "normal people time" (read 10 hours Sepharo time) into the game and I'm doing the mission to protect the guy from the powder gangers in the first town.

Well the enemies came and they just stood there frozen in place. Wouldn't attack me or do anything, so I start hacking at one with my machete and as soon as he dies my game crashes.

By the time I found the Matter Modulator DT was a null issue. Plasma to the face is too much for anything to handle, and deathclaws.... well they can be sneak attacked

As for super ghouls... go to vault 34

Bring RadX.

Branched a TON of story lines though after going to a couple locations after Helious One. Having a blast.

Energy Weapons DO NOTTTTTT suck. Tell that to my Prototype Tesla Cannon and YCS Gauss Rifle.


The prototype is a unique weapon that uses 50 energy cells in a single shot. It's a little beyond this discussion. (Plus you need to find it, and be able to get past its guardians.)

The Gauss Rifle is overpowered, pretty much everybody agrees on that.

The normal laser rifle and pistol and plasma rifle and pistol suck, because they have no ammo to counter DT. People on the forum have run tests where a 9mm pistol takes down an opponent with DT in ten shots quicker than a plasma pistol. That's just ridiculous. In FO3, plasma was probably too powerful, but this is way too far to the other side. I'm regretting putting 100 points into energy weapons, since my frigging Cowboy Repeater kills shit far more quickly and efficiently than any energy weapon I've got.

Yes, you are (as usual) forced to use guns for a few levels (and you should ditch that shitty varmint rifle for That Gun in Novac ASAP). But there's nothing stopping you from hitting up The Gun Runners or Silver Rush for an early Plasma Rifle. Plus you could be like me and JACK UP repair before anything else (which is sensible because unlike FO3 Lockpick and Science are largely not needed, at least beyond 50, for a long while). Being able to make weapon repair kits is a godsend, so you'll only ever NEED one of those big, beautiful expensive weapons. If you're up for wasting money, the repairman in Camp Mojave has 100 skill. Add to that that energy weapons are very durable and do not require regular repairs (and why would they, they aren't mechanical), unlike something like an SMG or shotgun.

Once I stumbled upon the Matter Modulator, that was pretty much the tipping point. I've just raped face ever since. Microfusions are not rare or expensive (and can simply be recycled from other ammo). They do weigh a ton, though, compared to other ammo. I still use my Sniper Rifle for picking off those nasty deathclaws (from an excessively safe distance), but mister plasma rifle is perfect for most anything else. Word of warning, do not take the Meltdown; it does friendly fire (including toward the PC).

I must not be wandering around enough. I haven't found any caves yet, except one that is under water, but I can't seem to hold my breath long enough to properly explore that one. I'm guessing there must be some skill or equipment I can get to help with that.


I guess I've sticking too close to the quest log, as, after reading a few of these, it's apparent I've missed out on a bit. The one time I went wandering, I found that town in the SE where bad things have happened (trying not to spoil anything here), and got my ass handed to me, and after that I stuck to the roads, which I admit almost seem too easy by comparison.

I'm about 15 hours in now and up to level 9...has anyone finished it yet? If so, what level did you end up at?

The one thing that Fallout 3 definitely did better though, was to reward you for exploring. Every cave or mine I go into in NV is just a single room with three monsters and a metal box in it.

? The first cave I went into I got jacked by 8 wolves....are we going in different caves?

/edit: F this - I am jumping in game.

You mean the Coyote cave? Yeah, there were 8 or so of them in there, yawn. I had a 9mm submachine gun at the time. By the time I had to reload only one was left.

There's a cool cave near Searchlight, though, with some very funny Rats in it.

Do I need to talk to someone else? Do something else? I'm stuck.

heres a tip: (spoiler) you have to wait outside of the tower, and stay hidden at least 100 meters or so away.. then a few minutes after 1am, go into the tower and hide right there at the entrance
 
Go forth, and kill!
