The gun is different from both of those. It's the Rangers Sequoia or something like that, and it fires this harder-to-find ammo. I got one from Kris Kristofferson.

Dude, FUCK Cazadors. Eventually, I had to put it on Easy when they show up, simply because every hit would take my health down by a fifth.
Also, in F3, Deathclaws sucked, but at about level 20, I could take on five at a time and be allllright. I'm level 17, and even ONE Deathclaw can tear me a new one. I'm on a miniquest to take out a whole damned nest of them.

Zomboid Oct 26th, 2010 11:22 PM

Yeah, the quarry. I did it with a sniper rifle.

Okay, I finally reached Vegas and got a Suite...though I don know...I like the Motel-Room better, it´s more compact and way easier and quicker to reach.

It´s interesting to see how useful Barter ans Speech are this time around which basically means I can´t finish some quests because I made my Char like a Fallout 3 - Character had to be meaning 9 Int and 1 Charisma...doesn´t help me that much here and man, there´s only 15 Perks I get to pick, should´ve thought about that a bit harder...

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 04:45 AM

I like the perks that up damage percentages. The Entomologist helps with Cazadors, though, you only need an automatic weapon - you don't even have to be good with it, either.

OxBlood Oct 27th, 2010 06:17 AM

I think the perk that I like the most is the Hand Loader perk. Getting more powerful ammo for free is pretty nice. I didn´t even pick the essentials like Finesse, Commando or Gunslinger yet because I just don´t know if I can afford wasting a Slot on something like that...

executioneer Oct 27th, 2010 06:39 AM

fuck yes, they did the ending right this time. unfortunately now i realize i have to do quests for all the npc companions :( god DAMN there is so much game here

edit: omg wil wheaton and dave foley did voices? wtf wtf

MrAdventure Oct 27th, 2010 07:19 AM

how many bottle caps do i need to spend to help ed-e keep out of melee range also will that upgrade keep him from randomly disappearing

also when do i get to the quest that stops hard locking the xbox 360 i couldnt find anything on gamefaqs

my character build is 5 str 5 end 5 daydream about murdering the people behind the QA bottleneck for this game and 10 luck im feelin lucky

i also want to thank them for the free quick draw perk it's nice not having the floating gun all the time (actually i'm serious about that, having the gun pop up when the left trigger is held is better in every possible way compared to gun on a stick)

executioneer Oct 27th, 2010 07:30 AM

im sure they'll fix most of it in patches :( :( :( :( I STILL OVE THIS GAME

Dimnos Oct 27th, 2010 08:56 AM

"Benny is going to show you the tops." :lol What a tool. I'm glad I got to carve up that dudes face while hopped up on jet and psycho.

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 10:28 AM

Arcade Gannon is awesomely ~gay~.

And I don't have any of those problems you guys mentioned. Mainly, stuff spawns underneath the map for me, or there's some sort of singularity in the map that warps monster's models and kills them. Once, I shot a deathclaw and it floated up into the sky. It walked around for a while, only to fall down and die a bit later.

OxBlood Oct 27th, 2010 10:55 AM

I seem to remember that there was a flying Deathclaw-bug in F3 too. It kinda ascended to heaven and then smashed down to earth again later.

I had two lockups and one texture-fail in my three days of playing the game. Picked up Veronica on the way, what a nice girl. Now I´m trying to do her quest along with the vault 22 one but I can´t seem to finish the quest cause I need to

The only thing that really bugs me is that feeling of "there´s fifty thousand more quests for you to dooooo" looming in my mind...okay it´s just 136 or something, still. A lot to do. Then again, the first playthrough is just there to test the waters...

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 10:57 AM

I'll draw you a diagram, hold on.

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 11:01 AM

Throw a grenade or shoot one from a launcher. You won't get burned.

This is sort of my issue too. I kind of want to blow through this first play through because I want to side with other people and try different things. I think Im going to do a few a few more side quests then finish it up siding with Mr. House this time. Next play through I think Im going Joe raider billy bad ass and siding with Caesar on hardcore and try to do everything. I also kind of want to do another run through with a non combat character. Just jack up all my speech and barter and charisma and try and rely on companions for bodyguards. That dude Boone should be more than enough. :lol

Zomboid Oct 27th, 2010 02:14 PM

Yeah, I was planning on trying to do pretty much every quest and then just make different decisions on subsequent playthroughs, but there's just way too many. I'm gonna do the same as Dimnos for my next game and murder/enslave people left and right.

...is there an evil companion? Ed-E is pretty much neutral, but everyone I've met so far is more-or-less good. Boone is a fucking beast, by the way.

Dimnos Oct 27th, 2010 02:35 PM

Boone kills shit before I even know its there. Ill be walking along, no red marks on my compass, out of no where a slow mo crit death scene! WTF?! A min later I find a dead body.

No idea on evil companions. Ed-E and Arcade maybe just because they have Enclave ties? On my current play through Boone doesnt really seam to give a shit when I kill or rob people. He just doesnt want to be friends with Legion. Or use brotherhood power armor.

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 02:56 PM

No companion wants power armor. It counts as a disguise to them, so they drop it and it disappears. Same with Legion and NCR armor, I believe.

Zomboid Oct 27th, 2010 03:33 PM

You can probably upgrade everyone's armor, though. I've got Boone wearing NCR First Recon armor after going back to Bitter Springs and fighting off a Legion raid, and ED-E has upgraded armor after bringing him to the BoS.

Boone doesn't seem to wanna use the sniper rifle I gave him, though >:

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 04:49 PM

After you do their quests and stuff, they get upgraded. Same with almost every companion. I dunno if Lily has a companion quest associated with her.

Zomboid Oct 27th, 2010 04:53 PM

There must be. I can't see them leaving one character out like that.

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 05:03 PM

ED-E's is cool. So are Arcade Gannon's and Cass's.

Mad Melvin Oct 27th, 2010 06:12 PM

Got the collectors edition last friday and been playing this since then. I played the shit out of Fallout 3, but New Vegas is so much better. If I have to say something negative about this, there seems to be TOO much stuff to see and do. It baffles me.

Just killed Tabitha and found Raul. I have Boone with me atm, so i'll have to make a choice. Boone is a crack shot, but on the other hand he is boring and always giving me shit about my shooting abilities. I'd much rather listen to Danny Trejo, but Raul is propably kinda shitty at combat.

Dimnos Oct 27th, 2010 06:30 PM

Boone is almost to good. I haven't decided if he makes the game to easy and therefore boring. I'm seriously considering dropping his as off at the house and going on without him.

Fathom Zero Oct 27th, 2010 06:32 PM

I think I've explored a single cave during the whole time I've had the game. It's time to go spelunking!
