Just a question, no spoilers please, but if you kill a NCP that you need is it game ending or is it that it means you cant do those missions or...

If an NPC dies, that's it. You can't start any quests they're involved with, if they're involved with a quest you already have, it usually says you failed it, and if you somehow start a quest that requires you to talk to them, the marker on your radar leads to their corpse, and because you can't abandon a quest, it's on you quest log for eternity. Luckily, none of the NPC's for the main quests can be killed, just like in Fallout 3.

However, if someone dies on PC, all you have to do is hit ~, click their corpse, and type "resurrect," and voila, they are reborn.

Hopefully any of the major (and I mean major) gang leaders I have killed are not NPC's.

If I kill, or someone else kills, an otherwise important person IMHO (Beagle, Sunny, etc) I just re-load.

My mission outcomes have probably been fucked for future side missions, but I have been taking short routes.

Anything with repair or science skills I've taken the easy way out, which we know will devalue side missions.

Hopefully there is a generous mod here that is watching this thread, because as AFAIK we do not know the story end yet.

We all know someone out there is racing through the story liners and not doing the sides.

These are the idiots that post "CJ kills Tenpenny" or "The Vault Dweller dies in the end of Fallout 3"....


Leveled up to 7 now and am at 2500+ caps. Found a repair kit but it only works for the weapon you are holding.

Note to loot as much as possible - there are a ton of new items that seem rare. Weapons especially.

Seems like, based on the map in the pip boy, Fallout New Vegas is 1/3 the size of Fallout 3..

Haven't really done much research on that point, but yeah, it kind of seems that way on the map, although it feels just as big as the Capital Wasteland when you're walking around.

You should also keep in mind that all of the New Vegas strip is accessible, rather than being half-composed of inaccessible ruins like downtown D.C. was, and D.C. took up nearly a quarter of the map.

Just pre-ordered off shopto, cant understand why the rest of the world gets it before us. hoping it comes on friday, got to love the free 1st class delivery on shopto.

shall be waiting for the postman on friday with my fingers crossed.

GTFO.

I played for hours yesterday and didn't really get shit done. I did finish the Ringo related missions in Goodsprings and explored all the way down south to Primm while trying to level up a bit. I've gone and managed to piss of the Powder Gangers pretty bad. They shoot on sight, unless I am wearing some of their clothing; then they only shoot if they get close.

I spent a good part of the night running from three giant rad scorpions that followed me all the way from around the Goodsprings cemetery all the way to Sloan. They chased me all the way to the memorial deal and I managed to make it into the abandoned shack. I rested for 5 hours in the shack, thinking they might be gone, but when I got back out they were still waiting for me. I managed to escape them by jumping off a small cliff.

I also didn't head the advice of one of the miners in Sloan. He warned me about the Deathclaws if I tried to head north to the strip. I figured I'd go ahead and make a run for it just staying on the train tracks. I barely got out Sloan before a Deathclaw mauled the fuck out of me. None of my guns even phased it.

Yep, the entire map is accessible and there are no more goddamn subways to try and navigate.

That's good to know. I saw the warning signs "Deathclaws Keep Out" over by the memorial/tower and cemetary.
Figured out if guns barely phase the radscorps then they would barely phase the Deathclaws.

Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



i didn't go that way but i could tell from the official deathclaw screenshot that they infest the quarry... i pretty much headed south to start the game, then a little east and then north for the remainder of my journey to the strip... i pretty much followed the old highway, passing a few towns and a couple of places i am planning on going back to visit like the helios building (which they wouldn't let me in but i am cool with NCR now) and the rocket factory ovverrun by ghouls...

... and i'm officially on the strip now, after about 3 hours of side jobs in freeside... i don't think it's much of a spoil but, in order to access the strip you either need a passport (which you can acquire from a side-mission) or pass a 2,000 cap credit check... i just started looking around vault 21 when my game crashed and that's where i left off last night...

i won "kinda" big in the gomorrah casino, over 300 chips... but i spent a hundred on a hooker, and another hundred i lost at the blackjack tables laugh.gif... so in reality, i walked away with winnings of 100 chips... i met mr. house, his casino looks awesome!! and yes, he does give you a swanky penthouse but, i can't see myself staying there much... i still like the musty old rotted motel room in the town of novac biggrin.gif...

i recruited boone and we rolled the wasteland together... i actually reached new vegas with him in tow but, i sent him back to novac to be alone... i had rex following me for a minute but, i told him to wait at the king's place because i wasn't ready to make the journey to get him fixed... the quest will take me into jacobstown they say... i think that's where the super mutant refuge is... but i am thinking of finishing up something here in vegas and then heading back to recruit cassidy biggrin.gif... i spotted her in a bar on my journey and she suggested i work for the crimson caravan in new vegas... i wonder what she'll say next...

and dammit, there goes my 2 day vacation... it's back to work... that time went by FAST!!!... too fast...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

My biggest ethical decision so far hasn't really been storyline related, rather it involved coyote pups in the overturned truck. They didn't attack, but I had already killed their mother and wasn't sure if they'd attack. I stood there for a minute or two deciding whether or not to waste them or not. I decided I needed the stuff in the back of truck so they met an unfortunate end.

For the most part, I have been avoiding killing the younger versions of animals but I know that they are one day going to grow up and want to kill me. It's kind of like the fucking Fox and the Hound.

Didn't you have to hit level 14 or something before Deathclaws would start showing up in 3? I guess the quarry could be like Old Olney or the Deathclaw Sanctuary, but you were a lot less likely to go near those places as a low-level.

I think I might actually have to start investing in the armor-piercing and hollowpoint rounds...

i've seen those for sale...

my guy is level 10, i think i reached that level just before i entered the vault 21 hotel & casino... am i like too far ahead of you guys?? i feel like i should of used more spoiler tags in my posts... you guys are still romping around the mojave laugh.gif... i didn't do much exploring in the mojave... i pretty much stayed on the path the game laid out for me, only deterring from it when a side-quest asked me to...

i think i might go back and check out some of these side-quests and locations i passed up on... i was eager to get to the strip so, i was moving through the game at a brisk pace... but now that i am there, i can afford to slow the flow a bit... i might check out that rocket factory the good folks of novac want me to check out...

BUGS: well, i've ran into a few bugs so far... one time i fell through half a plane and got stuck in it so, i had to reload... but, the game has come to a crashing halt a couple times... both were in new vegas, go figure tongue.gif... it froze up once when i was running towards an exit... i saw it coming since the game started to drastically slow down just prior... the other one was in vault 21, pretty much as soon as a script started running... and the only glitch i've noticed so far is at one point boone's NCR ranger beret was hanging sideways next to his face, lol laugh.gif... but so far, it hasn't been as bad as i thought it would be reading the reviews... it's just been a few hiccups, nothing serious yet... i actually think the game runs more smoother than fallout 3 so far... we'll see when i get into the latter levels if it still is... that's where i had the problems with fallout 3, freezes began popping up after about level 15...

EDIT: also, that's the last time i look at a fallout wikia page until i beat this game... i don't need any help with the main game right now... i'll worry about the wikia site once i start my second game and want to know how to alternately complete some of the quests and the cool unique stuff left for me to find out there... so for now, fuck fallout wikia biggrin.gif...

I don't think you're too far ahead, I think I'm just dragging like fuck. I'm only level 6, just now rolling into Novac after doing pretty much everything around Primm, Nipton, and the NCR's Mojave Outpost. Still have a couple things to do when my lockpick skill hits 50. ED-E is the shit, by the way.

there's quite a few NCR mojave outposts... didn't you hit up charlie on your way to novac?? you'll run into a few more on your way to the strip, they are everywhere it seems like... i am constantly running into the NCR... it's going to make the evil play that much more fun knowing how abundant the NCR is biggrin.gif...

you and synch must of tagged science biggrin.gif... i tagged guns, repair and sneak... but, i've been pumping a lot of points into speech because it seems like there are a lot of speech checks, even some in crucial quests... i like the magazines though, it's a nice +10 boost for those tough conversations that could use some temporary expertise...

now i'm off to finish what i started in vault 21... and that's my personal tour biggrin.gif...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I meant the big outpost you run into if you go right on the highway instead of left to Nipton. You get sent there if you choose the NCR for that quest in Primm. Keeping that vague in case one of you hasn't done it yet...

And I tagged guns, repair, and speech. I figured out that those are the most valuable skills when you no longer have five DLC's worth of gear you can pick up before even starting the main quests.

Hey, if you bought your copy from Gamestop, don't mod the Weathered 10mm Pistol. They didn't bother to add the models for the modded versions, so you'll just wind up staring at a red box with an exclamation point in it.

QUOTE (bOnEs @ Oct 20 2010, 08:35 AM) *
and like synch said, don't underestimate the creatures neither... i constantly find pockets of ants and scorpions, sometimes as many as 10 of them in a single location... it really takes some strategy after a while... i've only died once so far and that happened when i ran into a pack of vipers, one of the factions in the mojave...


and HOLY SHIT, i think i am cheating using the caravan shotgun!! i have pumped probably more than a hundred shells through it and it is still almost in mint condition!! this fucker is going to hold up nicely biggrin.gif... it deals out about the same amount of damage as the single shotgun but, it's double barreled with two bullets delivered separately and it's durability is probably unmatched... and i am still wearing the lightweight leather armor too because, it's a neutral outfit and it's still the better suit of armor that i've found so far, which isn't much...


i also found myself a place to stay, although, i did wonder about a few places i came across on my journey... free beds and containers everywhere!! something makes me think we'll be able to almost choose wherever to be our home... i paid a hundred caps for a motel room in ***** novac ***** and the keep said i could have it until the busy season kicks in, which is probably never laugh.gif... so, a hundred bucks for a nice looking pad... i got some shit in the containers right now, and i am willing to gamble to see if it saves my stuff...


Got the Caravan Shotgun tonight. Sure is a good weapon, bOnEs. cool.gif

It's good but I been scoring the new bug stomper perks with just
9mm and 10mm weathered pistols. Same for mutated animal perks.
Mostly various strains of mantis, bloatfly, radroach, geckos and coyotes.
The throwing spears work well there too, especially for the Golden Geckos.
Also, anyone tried killing those birds? You can, I shot one tonight with manual aim.
They eat on the dead carcasses of the geckos, in areas like that mountain where the prospector died.
(The side quest to help that guy rescue his girlfriend is a Gecko gold mine.

When you have ED-D as a companion, your perception level is peaked,
and you can spot enemies for miles around. In between Goodsprings and Primm,
you can really build up bug stomping, XP, shooting, mellee skills by using that perception,
seeking them out and killing them. Hit Level 8 tonight, pretty uneventful other than finding new locations.
Got a Mojave Walker note, doesn't appear to be an achievement, but I just saw something about 50 locations.
Came across the super poisonous flying bugs - those things are super nasty.
Better have the antivenom handy or it's lights out real quick.


I pretty much stay away from the various scorpions but the incinerator works well.

Favorite new weapon is the Carbine that the mutants carry. 5mm shells.
Funny how the Nightkins of the Black Mountain where I first encountered
the mutants and new centaurs, carry that big sword like Pyramid Head in Silent Hill.


And as for other game/film relationships, a lot of the music sounds like Twin Peaks.

Finally have high lock pick, med, repair, and science skill.
Have to use the comic books before engaging in any heavy speech tricks though.

You guys will all pass me up by miles in the storyline but I'm just going at a snail pace now.
After I found a hollowed out rock like the one in Megaton, now I am checking everything.
There are stashes literally everywhere.

As for there being no DC Metro tunnels to get lost in, I found the Hidden Valley Bunkers....
First one needs 50 lock pick skill, no problemo right? The second - MAX. 100 lock pick skill required.
That's like the door to get into the side of the ship where the scientist lives in Rivet City, instead of swimming.
Hopefully there will be a secret safe way to get in to the quarry to kill the deathclaw alpha male, queen,
and also get eggs for the girl's omelette recipe in Sloan. But who knows, it could be nothing in those tunnels.


Got the room in Novac but it's just not near anything I need like re-loading bench, campfire, etc.
Still staying in the trailer behind the store and saloon in Goodsprings. I'm boring as usual.


Also - Found a glitch! Very GTA-like. On the mountain above the Lone Wolf Radio Station,
you can fall into the rock and explore under the hill for a fair bit. That is I think, due east of Primm.
Not many glitches like that, it's an insubstantial plane, a hole in the surface, similar to the underworld in VC.

Can't wait for my 3 day weekend to play. A few hours each night after work doesn't get me very far.
But hey, at least I found a Wasteland Survival Guide. biggrin.gif
