    Veronica is one of the only characters who can wear Power Armor (Boone is another, because he can wear NCR Salvaged Power Armor - but I believe you will have to murder one for it).

    What is REALLY annoying is they cannot even carry the armor with them. They just drop it. So you have to carry a lot of faction related stuff yourself.

    Boone can also wear the only non-registered T-51b armor in the game

    At least I think there's only one or you buy it

    Regardless, it's not just salvaged armor

    But yeah you gotta murder for salvaged

    There is so many mods to fix that. so many. even one that replaces ED-E with a hooker bot.

    I finally got to the strip. Lucky Gomez is level 14 now. Yes Man is hilarious.

    Benny got away, so I have to go all the way to camp fort to get the damn chip. I just got the Mark of Caesar, so I should have an easy trip there. Boone is going to take a few days off and hang out at the 38. :)

    Companions can only wear their own faction armor, not others. They can't even carry it, they drop it on the ground.

    Man, the trek from my closest landmark-- bitter springs-- to the cottonwood cove, was a damn nightmare. Cazadores all over the damn place, I left Boone at the 38, ED-E was goddamn worthless. I get all the way to dock, go for a boat ride, and try to go into Caesar's tent. The guard says only you may enter. I turn around to tell ED-E to stay, and he's not there. I try fast traveling to different places, check Primm and the 38, wander around the last place I remember him doing anything, the one boathouse near Bitter Springs, and I CANNOT FIND THE FOOL. Dammit. Two hours down the drain.

    ED-E should hopefully be at the entrance to the Fort, i.e. the area where you first appear when you take the boat. I had the disappearing party member problem with Veronica and that's where she appeared.

    ED-E won't follow us down into vault 34... he doesn't like the rads I guess??

    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.

    Does using the console disable achievements?

    Googled this.
    "WARNING: Using console commands in the Steam version of Fallout: New Vegas will prevent you from obtaining achievements! If you shut down and restart the game they will enable again! "

    If ED-E disappears on you just open up the console and do

    prid 001732d1 (Regular ED-E)
    001732D0 (Upgraded Weapons)
    001732CF (Upgraded Armor)

    moveto player

    And ED-E is back.

    Depending on your mods this may not be the prid for ED-E in your game, this is for vanilla

    I try not to think about the stuff I lost inside Ed-E after his "retooling" dissapearance.

    Also: If you are wandering around Red Rock Canyon (or whatever it's called) watch out for getting stuck in the ground causing you to load an old save. Thank god for auto saves.

    Trying to blast yourself out with mines and dynamite will not work, FYI.

    I wound up finishing the game with two ED-E's since my first one fucked off someone and couldn't find them. Tried moving him to me NOPE.

    And then through repeated console fuckery not only did I make another ED-E but when I moved them both showed up at the Lucky 38.

    I actually did this. I hit the 32k jackpot on slots, so i bought all the implants. Eventually you just have more caps than necessary since you arent buying armor or weapons anymore.

    That's totally in line with Benny's personality. He plays it cool all the time.
    What else is he going to do? He's pretty much accepted his death at that point.

    The House Always Wins is done

    Now who should I side with

    I have a question about this vis-a-vis the other "story quest" paths:
    I'm trying to do a pro-NCR run. I am assuming that completing the "For the Republic" quest line means I am backing NCR at the Hoover Dam.

    How do the "House Always Wins" or "Change of Management" quest lines play into that? I interpreted them as "backing Mr. House" or "backing yourself/Yes Man," respectively (i.e. they are alternative routes to the end).

    Are these lines all divergent, or can I (for example) side with Mr. House *and* back the NCR?

    No.
    For The Republic has a part where you have to kill House.

    The choices don't combine. You can side with yourself (Yes Man), you can side with NCR, or Legion, or House. Doing too many of one faction's loyalty quests will lock out the others.

    I can't get Old School Ghoul to trigger. I think I may learned Ranger Takedown a long time ago, when I first started out. However, there was an option to convince Ranger Andy he is still a good dude, and he taught me it again. Raul won't talk about him though, so the quest won't trigger. I've tried waiting around for a few hours. Do you have to wait so many days?

    Ok, Meltdown is *fantastic*.

    BUT I'm gonna have to change my strategy. I took the tri-beam laser as my close-range spray-n-pray weapon.. yeah that's not gonna work.

    Put that away and grabbed the light machine gun (249 dps :^:) for close range and then switched to the scoped laser rifle.

    Blew up an entire camp of fiends with 1 shot from a mile away ... they never knew what hit them, just alla sudden bodies exploding everywhere. :lol:

    The laser rifle scope has almost no "sway" it's great for sniping. Not as much punch as the anti-material obviously but fun for sniping groups.

    So for my last perk should I take Nerves of Steel (faster AP regen) or Math Wrath (AP costs reduced by 10%)? Or something else like, Silent Running or Light Step or even Toughness?

    How good is Nerves of Steel? I have about every other VATS perk, and use it a lot (Commando, Action Boy, Sniper, Concentrated Fire, Grim Reaper's ..)

    edit: oh shit I realized I only took 1 level of Action Boy and there's 2... so should I take that again (+15 AP) or Nerves (+20% AP regen, according to the wikki..) HMMMMM
