    A shame it's not Freeside, where you can just bribe your reputation back after shooting the place up.

    The Nexus links in the mod post don't seem to be linking to anything, for me anyway.

    The nexus changed their domain name, so all of those links are dead. You'll have to manually search for them at the nexus' new site, which is newvegas.nexusmods.com/

    FO3 w/ FWE cleared. Now starting FNV again, substantially modded (trying out that there Boulder Dome thingy) from a clean install. Brings back memories.

    *LAST YEAR*

    Gamebryo: Gentlemen! I bring you... MODS!
    Me: Oh... that's nice! 'cause, you know, I'd like to replay the game and tweak it a little, and...
    Gamebryo: Good! Then let the crashing begin! Mwahahahahahaaaaaaaaa!

    *game explodes on startup*


    *THIS YEAR*

    Gamebryo: Gentlemen! I bring you... MORE MODS!
    Me: Yeah, I don't know man. After last time...
    Gamebryo: This time... shall be different! Mwahahahaha!
    Me: ...well, all right, I guess I am feeling up to replaying...

    *game explodes on startup*

    Gamebryo: IT'S NOT DIFFERENT AT ALL, IS IT, STOLLS?!

    I got a cat companion, I'm happy.

    Once I get back to Vegas, going to finally install Suite Reloaded and Run the lucky 38.

    I'm going to kill House moments after he opens the door to the casino. Only room for one rich fat cat in this town, buddy.

    Cat-companion?

    Hey! ED-E is repairing my katana backwards. Unrepairing it. I guess the saya-mod messes up the weapon's condition in some way. Mick still fixes it right. Have not tried Repair Kits.

    Aww, ED-E. Why you gotta be-a like that?

    Ha. Ha ha ha. Hehe. Deathclaws. Meet War Club in GRX-mode. They actually landed in a pile when I knocked them down. The dilated time made snapping limbs tint the whole screen red, rather than producing brief, partial spatters.

    Yep. You can get one in the Boulder Dome mod.
    Found the poor lil fellow feasting on the remains of another cat. Not a very powerful follower as you could imagine but she's probably the fastest and gives a nice movement speed perk boost.

    Coulda sworn I heard somewhere that the emblems on the back were NCR, Lucky 38, Legion Bull, Vault 21 and Yes Man's face.

    No. The vault 21 one is for siding with Yes man.

    It's not really Vault. Just 21. With a big spade. As in Blackjack. On the other hand, that's exactly why Vault 21 was numbered 21, too.
    No Lucky 38, either. Just Old World. A starspangled thing.

    Huh... Interesting then.
    First playthrough I sided with NCR, but got the Old World.

    Now I'm siding with House (though I am supporting NCR a bit) and got the Great Bear.

    Yeah. Again, the system used in the base DLC for which duster you get is absolutely terrible. You need the mod for it to be decent.

    Kinda tempted to use console codes for once. Also, DAMMIT ARCADE! Stop losing those LAERs when you head back to the 38. THOSE ARE RARE AND IRREPLACEABLE, UNLIKE YOU!

    I swear, give the dude the gun and enough ammo to take on an ant hill, I dismiss him to the 38 so I can drop off some stuff and sell things at the Sink (since it's got like a 30K cap capacity, instead of a measly 8K like at GR), come back to recruit him and the gun's gone.

    Dude's getting a Tri-laser rifle instead. Cheaper to replace.

    70 % AP-reduction for plasma? That's 6 AP for the Plasma Defender. That is not much AP at all.

    My sneak-attacks are crazy, crazy, crazy. I'm really crouch-running (pretty fast, too) straight into crowds, sometimes right past somebody's face, then mowing down as many as I can target in a single VATS sequence, because nothing survives unless I miss.
    If there's something left, I easily trigger a stun or knockdown by flailing wildly in their general direction.

    Anyway, finished fetching eggs for the Thorn, I'm off to create an oddball-character. The Caravaneer. Shotguns, booze, diplomacy and carrying stuff. Thinking old and balding. Below average agility and perception. Might get Four Eyes, which is normally not a very good trait.
    Maybe I'll even use the name Thunder Ushiyama. Teach youngster Cass a thing or two about caravaning without being melted into a glowing puddle. Help her beat the Queen of Caravans. Bringing in dat World Tour money.

    Edit: Yeah, I think I'm liking it. Beach Bully, Unsuspecting Trout, Flame Retardant, Cheery Salesman, Gifted, Oaf and Stacked Deck.
    Oh, an option for the "two bears, highfiving" picture is "A light in the darkness."

    This is Betty Boom. Betty has a bit of a problem with explosives. The theme for this playthrough is gonna be EXPLOSIONS! Michael Bay presents New Vegas. And good ole Existence 2.0, making the simple task of hunting geckos nerve wracking. The Monster Mod pack adds Snorks from Stalker too is silly.

    One thing I appreciate about Boomers is that I thought they were carrying normal rifles at first, but when I looked closer I noticed that Boomers just never use bullets when they could be using grenades instead.

    Maybe Caesar gave the shiniest helmet to the commander who doesn't actually do any brainy things to distract 1st Recon.
    Otherwise, he noticed how supersnipers were killing his command-structure, and tried to solve the problem by making important people easier to spot. Ha ha, that can't be right, ha?

    Has anybody used the exploit to gain both of Cass' perks from Heartache by Number? How do the ending-slides react to shenanigans like that?

    Bethesda seems bound and determined to stick with Gamebryo, even when they try to pretend it's not (Skyrim), and they're gonna keep fucking that chicken until it kills someone, or themselves.

    With how absurdly well Skyrim sold, on top of sales of FO3 and NV, despite people having griped about the engine since Oblivion, they have no real reason to go with a new engine.

    Having more RAM with the next gen consoles (and I guess other power too) will help a bit though

    Still. Even if they DID have more ram available, that doesn't change the fact that their version of the Gamebryo/creation engine is pretty much the worst engine I've seen.

    Good lord at the money you can pick up with Run the Lucky 38.

    I now have more bottle caps than I could spend in ten playthroughs.

    Now I just need a mod that gives me a stick to shoo poor people away with. Or hire a stranger to nuke Freeside for me.

    Hell, I have that problem now. I bought all the implants I could get (base and OWB), sell what I don't use armor/arms-wise, buy rad meds/stimpacks/crafting stuff and I STILL got about 30K on me at all times.

    I can't join your exclusive club you fancy freaks? I'll fuckin BUY YOUR CASINO. How's that shit for you?

    I enjoy getting all implants because I'm greedy like that. But unless you need it for perks, Old World Blues makes the Hypertrophy Accelerator obsolete, because it doesn't stack with
    your shiny, new spine. Which doesn't help with perks, though.

    trying to do anything with new vegas through steam is likely to crash your computer, set off nukes stashed in freeside, the 88, and may well cause the ncrs crops to fail... is that what you want you monster, all those people to die just so you can get some pretty picture of someones pc?

    Ya, PC :)

    The issue is uploading, takes too long from my location.

    So, I convinced Benny to talk to me, I found out his plans and blew his face off and took the platinum chip. I still haven't decided if I'm going to give it to House or not, but I'm doing the Wild Card quests regardless. I've been fairly pro NCR, mostly out of hate for Legion, but haven't commited yet. From what I've seen of the Strip and Freeside, I'm not thinking I want to give House more power, he enabled all that horrible shit I've seen so far.

    But maybe that horrible shit would've been even worse without House! And maybe with more power, he could fix the horrible shit!

    Aside from the Legion being straight up evil, this game does a great job of having characters and factions that are sympathetic but not just "good in their own way," so making choices between them is tough not because it's a bullshit Sophie's Choice made up by a game designer who wants to make things difficult, but because the game world is full of complex, interesting forces, each of which have a reason for existing and pros and cons of their own.
