    This game is GOAT material and I have a feeling a lot of people aren't realizing we haven't had a game this wide open and full of character since Deus Ex 1.

    "What is the very best, greatest game this year, programmed perfectly and utterly without bugs?"

    A) Fallout: New Vegas

    B) Fallout: New Vegas

    C) Fallout: New Vegas

    D) Fallout: New Vegas

    It's D! I'm sure of it. D.

    Wait.

    It may be C.

    No, it's C. It has to be.

    Is there a barbershop somewhere? I haven't found anywhere to get a haircut or change my facial hair yet.

    If you join the Kings over at Freeside, you'll get access to a barber eventually.

    Oh yes, the bugs. The only thing I've come across is the whole NPC/creature stuck in terrain dealio. I did have on NPC who was stuck waist high in the ground completely disappear after I'd kiled him. Anyway, I gotta read more onthe game, seems like ther's a billion things I don't understand.

    Still wondering if companions are affected by things like radiation like the Player Character is.

    Picked up Veronica as a companion and sent Boone back to Novac, for now at least. I like Veronica better as a character (Felecia Day did a great job as her VA), but I miss the Spotting Perk and Boone's pin-point accuracy with his sniper rifle.

    That brings me actually to a question.

    Note: I don't want to defend New Vegas Bugs (Which it has a whole damn lot) but it really interests me.

    Does anyone remember ANY game that actually was perfectly programmed and didn't have any Bugs/Glitches since the NES days? Is that even technically possible to achieve?

    Hm. I took the mustach off, because he looked too much like Eddie Murphy, but I think I am just going to roll with it.

    I guess I will just bypass HUGE ASS DEVIL WASP ROAD to get to Vegas proper.

    Do the Gun Runners sell mods for the .357? I haven't seen any yet, although I am only level 6.

    also in regards to the NCR ending and the Brotherhood question asked earlier:
    i convinced the brotherhood to join with the NCR. pretty sure it was a speech challenge you get after finishing all the brotherhood quests

    Arrgh, did you have to
    replace the Elder? :T

    Gentlemen, I like dynamite.

    No, Gentlemen. I love dynamite! I love explosions. I love gibs. I love torn off limbs. I love sparks, fires, I love ignoring damage thresholds, and armour. Explosives across the sands, in streets, in rooms, in hallways, in firefights, over obstacles, radioactive pits, in people's pants, I love every thrown stick that blows up upon this earth. I love blasting the enemy to smitherines with thrown salvos that thunder over the lines of defenses. My heart leaps with joy whenever a soldier is tossed into the air and cut to pieces by well placed TNT. And the feeling that comes when a bandit limps screaming away with his destroyed leg only to be mowed down by heavy machine gun fire, is such an esquisite feeling. Like when ranks of powder gangers brandishing pitching their explsives into the enemy line. It moves me deep within my heart to watch a fresh recruit staring into the separated chest of a blown apart enemy.

    Let us remind them of the taste of fear. Let us remind them of the sound of our lighters striking. Let us remind them that there are things between the earth and sky which they would not even dream to be possible with a volley of TNT ten dozen sticks thick.

    We will burn the world down. Here we go... Gentlemen.

    For me it's not so much the game has bugs but rather the random nature of them. Just recently I got some stupid minor bug where my character didn't have any idle animations, so when I stood still I was like a statue.

    Aww, my question got bottom paged. Is that the voice of Mark Hamill I hear on Black Mountain Radio? It is a dead ringer for his Joker voice.

    No, its not Mark Hamill

    IMDB and the Fallout Wiki could have told you this

    Who is it than? Both sites fail to tell us this.

    Both sites clearly tell you that its Fred Tatasciore

    By backtracking through my saves I think I figured out what happened with my Boone that will only fight bare handed. I took him into the Gomorrah casino, where they took all of our weapons.

    When we came back out, though it restocked me, it didn't give him his rifle back. And even if I give him one just like it, he still never draws it and instead prefers to just fight bare handed.

    You have to give him ammo for any gun you give him if you want him to use it.

    As for me, he still had his rifle in my game..He just decided to Machete everything for no good reason


    Am I the only one who dropped boone because with him and ed-e together everything got super easy?

    I came across a bug where I was trying to jump over some rock and got stuck on it. I couldn't move anywhere. I thought it wasn't a big deal and I'd just fast travel anywhere.

    I want to finish Boone's quest/story thing, and then I am going to get Raul. I guess your companions upgrade their skils or armor or something. Boone slays the shit out of damn near everything, it makes things kind of easy. He's good to have around, but he saves my ass so many times. It is good and bad.

    Also, because no one answered them:
    Is New Vegas (City) the Fallout Imperial City I thought it was?
    Are there Behemoths in this game?
    What is the range of the age of music they can put in a fallout game? I would like to see some more 60's songs, someone mentioned Elvis earlier which would be pretty rad. Also, they need to put in the Chordettes already, since they are from the 50's, and their pretty good. Also, unless it contradicts the American spirit vibe that pre-war was trying to achieve, would Beatles and Steppenwolf (even though they are late 60's) be a bad choice?

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who thought that the Black Mountain radio DJ was voiced by Mark Hamill. It does sound like a pretty close ringer for his Joker voice.

    BoS lost Laser question:
    I'm looking for that lost laser pistol for the Brotherhood of Steel armorer and I can't find it. I know it's somewhere in that Scorpion Gulch nearby, but I don't see it on the ground anywhere. Any tips on where it might be?

    Yes(ish). It's much more sprawling tbh, since I count Freeside, The Strip, North Vegas Square, Eastside and to an extent the Caravan Company and Fort Airport (or whatever) as part of main NV. But the important thing is that the post apocolyptia and lack of people doesn't actually feel out of place. :P

    The strip itself is crowded enough for your tastes, I reckon.
    Are there Behemoths in this game?

    Not that I've seen. It is a big game though.

    At Scorp Gulch itself, it's sitting on a rock at the bottom of a kind of depression.

    the only thing that really pisses me off is that htey said it was gonna be as big as F3, and while the map is technically that big a huge chunk of the west of hte map is inaccessable/unused. Making the effective game map much smaller

    And the only reason that pisses me off is cause I remember hearing claims somewhere that it was gonna be as big, land wise

    sure its not cut off for story reasons?

    There is nothing out there, pretty sure its impossible to even access.

    My mind immediately says "DLC!"

    that doesnt make sense since what you can do with the geck and add on landmass.

    besides, i just got to a canyon clearing
    wrecked out but it gives the impression i can go through to the west area later, its got lots of messages left for courier 6 and stuff.

    also question on str requirements, why can i use weapons that require 5-6 str when my str is 4? or is it doing something else?
