I dedicate this thread to Bones, Synch, Massacre and shit, even Pieface. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you in the Mojave Wasteland and hearing about yours.

Please remember to use spoiler tags.

XBL Gamertag: your mother...
PSN Name: artistadam
Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



i played about 8 hours yesterday... i am currently sitting in novac, on the trail of my killer... i've done a few main quest missions and a few on the side... i've probably discovered about 15 locations but, i didn't explore every one of the them through... there are some cool places and then there are some fucked up ones...

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...

i've had to re-load a few times, just to re-do something specific, and also when i clipped through half a plane and got stuck... no one has died on me just yet... a couple of random encounters were testing me though... i even managed to save a lady from geckos in the tutorial quest...

to be quite honest, i am moving along in this game at a confident pace... i've handle just about every situation with great strategy and taken with a good approach to the situations... a couple of battles turned into an old fashioned shoot-out but, i am making good use of my surorundings...

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...

my character is kind of balanced with a touch of agility and luck... S=6 P=6 E=6 C=4 I=5 A=7 L=7... and i've already used one of my perks on an additional SPECIAL point, as well as on "shotgun surgeon" since my guy is turning into a great CQC guy with his shotgun, and the "educated" perk, giving me a few more skills points when i level up... i only took the trigger discipline trait at the beginning, it's the one that gives you 20% more accuracy at the cost of firing 20% slower... i think it's paid off already out there biggrin.gif...

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...

speaking of gambling, i started to figure out how to play caravan... i won my last game... but, i am itching to get to the strip so i can play some roulette and blackjack... and sit like a zombie at the slots too biggrin.gif... i am loving this game though... it's a fallout 3 lovers paradise!! maybe today i'll sit down and try to learn how to craft and make bullets... i haven't looked much into it just yet...

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.

There are so many beds because of Hardcore mode. They didn't want it to be too hard to avoid sleep deprivation. I imagine there are several wells and water sources outside of the group aroud Goodsprings, too. I think ammo having weight will be the biggest problem with Hardcore mode.

Using my controller to shoot instead of a keyboard and mouse will take a lot of getting used to. Luckily, there are geckos out the ass in the Mojave, so I'm getting plenty of practice.

Taking it slow after starting a second game last night, got to make sure no one important dies (apparently none of the NPC's are set as essential in this game?). Heading into Primm now...

Massacre, you make me look like a rational, moral, kind person.

When Massacre is around, everything is violated... Whether it likes it or not.

Whenever I think of "human resources" Massacre immediately springs to mind.
