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.

Viva New Vegas!

I didn't get to start playing until 1030 last night and I was already tired as hell.

I did the tutorial missions in Goodsprings last night. Didn't get very far, I may just restart fresh this afternoon.

I fucked up a couple things, first of all Cheyenne got killed by the Geckos in the "shooting tutorial". It upset Sunny pretty badly - at first I thought it was a prescripted event based on our dialogue, but I realized it's just one of those things with this game. Maybe I could have saved him. I also forced the safe in the schoolhouse on accident. Dammit.

Anyway, what were your characters SPECIAL like? What traits did you choose?

For my first playthrough, I went with a pretty balanced SPECIAL setup with a little more emphasis on Charisma, Intelligence and Luck. I think I'll be trying to schmooze my way through the Wasteland with this character. For the initial traits, I chose the Good Natured and the Wild West trait, that makes everything "wackier".

Anyone decide to give hardcore mode a playthrough yet? It sounds very overbearing, but I think I will start a game after my first couple of playthroughs.

The training was great, I went for the extended and ended up looking for flowers, roots, etc during exploring.

Figured out how to use them and the benches, and then end up saving everything in hopes of. Too much stash.

I think during the ammo and re-loader bench dialogue with Chet, I lost the repair option.

Near the campfire area is where I first started to set up camp, at Goodsprings Source, in a little trailer with storage and a bed.

It gets old though dragging 1,000 lbs. of stuff to the general store.

I have now "fame" with some factions, and "infamy" with others. Most notably, the Powder Gangers, Jackals, and the Legion hate me.


Some of the gangs and creatures like radscorps are so tough, and the new health system is so different, I'm glad I didn't take Hardcore Mode.

Gangs: The Powder Gangers, Jackals, and Snipers are easy, but the Legion are proving to be not as gay as their dresses makes them look.

Creatures: Don't under estimate ANY of the radscorps this time. The health system has been re-vamped where you need anti-venom,
and the food does almost nothing in comparison to Fallout 3. Might be why they have special recipes using regular food.

I really like this aspect of the game, it was something that was missing in Fallout 3 until Point Lookout, where you could make Moonshine for cash based on things you scavenged for. After speaking with Easy Pete, I think there will be much more focus on scavenging than before.

I've slept there. Have you come across any ownable safehouses? I'm looking forward to setting up a few different camps across the wasteland, but it's always nice to have a humble abode to dump and display my treasures in.

I'm curious how "Fame" and "Karma" are going to mix things up. It seems like the "Fame" will take precedence over the "Karma" system when it comes to NPC's perceptions of you, especially if they are affiliated with a tribe.

Yep - but there is still the karma system. Note the things that are marked red, you will recieve bad karma for stealing.

Also note about old vs. new health and skill system: Some of the old reliable books like Guns and Bullets will still work, adding permanent points.
The new ones like Meeting People and others are short term, for when you are -about to- go and speech someone, pick a lock, use weapons, etc.
The health system is killing me, so I guess I am trying to make all the concoctions that you can see, with ingrediants. That and skill up on med skill.


I noted the "infamy" text after taking out everything in Nipton - but ran across Legion members in the wastes that don't shoot.
Same for the powders - they haven't been shooting either, and I pissed them off very early like the 2nd hour of the game.


Found many houses - locked and unlocked. As I did the sides and storyliners differently, we may find out those houses were ownable, or not.

But basically, the first time I may have lost out, was: I re-programmed the Primm Sim to be sheriff of Primm.
Many had made suggestions of who they wanted as sheriff, but in the end I re-programmed the robot and may have lost a house.
All of the four houses that were available in Primm then became occupied with residents. Could just be coincidence.
When I rescued Deputy Beagle, he died in the first fight so I re-loaded, rescued him again, and closed the doors so he could escape.
Then I took out the escaped convict leader of the Primm Hotel, and got his Incinerator. Don't think I could have taken out the
Legion in Nipton without that big weapon. So during all of that, I may have missed a house opportunity.


There is also the house that Pete stays in in Goodsprings. The other house everything is red in, and a woman lives there.
I get the feeling that had I had a higher speech skill, I could have talked Pete out of his dynamite, and his house.
Will not know for awhile because I put the Ringo mission on the back burner. But have convinced Sunny and Trudy to join.
Pete and Chet are the ones that my speech skill wasn't high enough for, so who knows if I lost a house, or haven't yet.


My biggest worries about a house are all of the stuff I've collected (not for sale, but for recipes) that may dissappear.
They haven't so far in either location, Goodsprings Source, or the trailer behind the saloon.

Now I have 5 or 6 locations of empty houses loaded with loot to transport back and sell much of.
Companion note: ED-D the eyebot can carry more than Fawkes could!!! L0L
