    I hit Helios One and chose poorly before getting Arcade so I don't think I can do his quest now.

    Although having him with with me when I armed Archimedes made me feel like a Bond villain but without the inevitable defeat.

    You can still do it. There a quite a few places that will get him talking and building trust with you.

    God FUCKING dammit. My game just crashed during the ending cutscene sequence wrapping everything up. Now I gotta do all that crap again.

    edit: five crashes later it finally plays all the way through. Jeez.

    Where are there more Followers quests? I helped them out at the Mormon Fort, that seems to be their HQ. I also did the bugging quest. I would like to raise my reputation with them but I don't seem to get much rep for helping them out.

    I went and looked through my guide and that is apparently the only way to get up to the higher levels. I've done every quest that gives me Followers rep.

    I was looking for a mod that would change a few perk requirements. It seems dumb that there are a fair amount of perks that affect both melee and unarmed, or guns and energy weapons, but require a pretty high skill level in only one of the two. Like Super Slam, for example.

    I found: http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=35841

    Which does do it, but adds in other stuff as well. Most of it is just reverting FO3/NV perks that were traits in Fallout 1/2 back to traits.

    You also get the old gifted/skilled combo back if you install it. But he couldn't figure out how to change perks to every third level, so it's just -20% XP, which is probably a bit too lenient.

    This was literally the worst trait in Fallout 2.

    I don't know why you'd even bother adding it back in.

    I've got the best bug ever. I can't travel to the Strip unless I use the monorail, and then the game crashes when I walk past the 38. I've fast travelled, and waited, and tried from different saves, all to no avail. Hurrah!

    also it feels like this has even fewer songs then FO3, which is pretty annoying.

    He may be broken after finishing his questline. To fix him, first empty his inventory because you'll lose everything you stored on him. Then open the console, click him, then type these commands in this order:
    disable
    enable
    kill
    resurrect

    And then he'll start following and shooting with you again.

    So, rapid reload is bugged
    if you plan on using the cowboy repeater, it will mess you up

    edit: I'm pretty sure it is? damn, I wish I could figure this out, I guess time will tell

    Yeah, rapid reload doesn't work if you reload while running around. Which is a bug, but I guess it works, because what sort of badass cowboy gunslinger runs around like a damn fool anyway?

    I wish there were cowboy clothes with decent DT in the game. I'm sure there are some to be modded in, but I have a ps3. Lucky Gomez wears the rattan hat, authority shades and combat armor. Some kind of cowboy clothes would be nice. Can you wear the big deal NCR duster armor outfit without the helmet? That could work.

    I've always been a fan of the idea that it would be nice if you had the option of armor that hides under your fancy clothes, much like kevlar. It always bugs me in MMOs how everyone always looks the same, because they're all wearing the best armor. I'd rather the armor be invisible under the clothes everyone wants to be seen in.

    You should be fine... it says in that line you just have to shut down and restart the game.

    It's not the game breaking bugs killing me... just the invisible walls for no reason and the Friend of the Night perk being bugged. It says it works at night OR inside, but it only works inside if it's night outside too. How. Dumb.

    And it's way prettier than turning up your brightness so... hush.

    edit: I looked it up, it is just coded stupidly. If it checked indoors then time, it'd work as described. It checks time then indoors for no reason at all.

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant.
