I'm rocking Boone too. He's fucking awesome. In Fallout 3, I hated companions - mostly because I tried to use Dogmeat and he would get killed more than he would help, so he ended up just hanging around My Megaton House with Clover and Charon after I got tired of reloading saves to keep him from dying. Anyway, he's incredibly dirty in a fight and he'll take down enemies I didn't even know were around. I almost shit my pants last night when I was walking past Lake Mead and all of a sudden a slow-mo explosion animation of a Lakelurk popped up. Boone had taken him out with one shot. I didn't know the Lakelurk was there and I literally jumped out of my seat. Can your companions die? Boone has gotten knocked unconscious a few times, but he hasn't died. Can someone confirm?

Also, in reference to Boone, who was the person you were supposed to lead out in front of the dinosaur for Boone to kill? I looked all over the lobby and couldn't get anything out of the lady in there, so I went to ask the McBrides, or whoever the Bhramin farmers are and the guy agreed to follow me, so Boone killed him, then I had to convince him that it was McBride and he bought it thanks to my mad speech skills.

I finished the REPCONN missions for the Ghoul's and took care of business in Boulder City. My next storyline mission has me going into Vegas, but the farthest north I have gotten is the 188 trading post. I attempted heading further north, but came upon like 15 "blind" deathclaws just chilling outside some building. My bullets still appear to have no affect on them at all and apparently speech skills don't add up to shit when it comes to those claws. When I quit playing last night, I had run out of side quest (except for the deathclaw egg side quest). I need to find a few more towns and shit to explore to get more side quests. I think I am really going to explore the south before heading any further north.

glitches, glitches, glitches, and freezes... i encountered the bugs last night, and i am not talking about the bloat flies or cavadors... characters getting stuck, walking underneath the ground, saying nothing, popping on screen right in front of me, etc... it was pretty bad last night... i think obsidian better get cracking on a PS3 fix... and maybe they can fix this cassidy shotgun glitch too sad.gif...


Bones, not too get fanboyish, but I haven't had one glitch that has affected my game. Plus I have a few save files as a backup. The only "glitch" is my arms disappearing and then "coming down" from the top of the screen when navigating hills. Very weird, but knock on wood, so far so good.

Planned files:

NCR Soldier - Weapons: Assault rifles, other military weapons. Armor: NCR uniforms until I get my reinforced combat armor, mark II. Companions: Boone. Loyalty: NCR

This is kind of what I am rocking now. I've been walking the radiation suit, if only for dramatic affect. I'm very heavily aligned with NCR, atleast for now. It'll only be a matter of time before I get greedy for some of that NCR Ranger Armor.

QUOTE (Massacre @ Oct 24 2010, 02:26 PM) *
Massacre - Weapons: Melee, Unarmed, Explosives. Armor: Anything resembling a gas mask (I know there are NPC's with mouth-only gas masks somewhere, and the NCR Ranger armor's helmet has a gas mask), whatever torn-up armor I find. Companions: Lily, or no one. Loyalty: None. Complete psycho, will do a quest for you and then kill you, or just do your quests, or just kill you. Nothing he does makes any sense.

As I am playing through, I want to just go berserker on people. Fuck a storyline, I want to rule the wasteland. Kill everyone except merchants. Collect all the teddy bears, ALL FOR ME!

DON'T TAKE COMPANIONS INTO THE CASINOS!!! I REPEAT, DO NOT TAKE COMPANIONS INTO THE CASINOS!!!

quoted again for those who might miss it... i gave boone a sniper rifle and now he's more dangerous than he was with his scoped hunting rifle!! him losing his weapon might of been a blessing in disguise biggrin.gif...

i ran into a whole mess of blind deathclaws too... it was at some train station north of fort golf... i avoided that place like the plague because my weapons are ineffective against them too...... if i may make a suggestion stoic, find the boomers.... i finished up their missions last night, and i got a very very useful item from them in the process... it's going to allow me the ability to explore a whole new area... you can find them at nellis air force base...

i also found the brotherhood and i am beginning to wonder which side they are on... they seem like good people but, my impressions so far are far from that... and WOW, i didn't know there were DUST STORMS in this game!! at night, in the brotherhood of steel area of operations, a dust storm started blowing through once i started their quest... really cool...

@stoic - about boone; that old lady that runs the motel, she's the one you lead out in front of the dino... you'll find notes about how she sold his wife to the slavers for a butt-load of caps and would receive additional payment the if the unborn child is born healthy... it's all in the note in the lobby...

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 picked up my copy of vegas on the weekend. Havent had a chance to play it alot, but i still managed to stock up on armours and weapons after the first main mission. The map looks really small compared to fallout 3. I hope they did this for a good reason.

it's dup!! long time no see!!

the map is more vertical than the capitol wasteland... i say it's the same size, just taller... once you start walking the wasteland, you'll realize it's still a pretty damn big map with more locations than fallout 3 had...

has anyone noticed that enemies destroy head gear in this game?? for the most part, in fallout 3, your armor took the damage... in new vegas, your headgear get's a ton of damage... i've already destroyed two of my favorite hats, and i can't find a repairman willing to repair them!! one is a cowboy hat, and the other is the boomer hat... does anyone know where i can find a repairman for armor?! the guy in the mojave outpost only does weapons and decent armor...

DON'T TAKE COMPANIONS INTO THE CASINOS!!! I REPEAT, DO NOT TAKE COMPANIONS INTO THE CASINOS!!!

i was just handed boone's scoped hunting rifle in my inventory when i left and i cannot give it back to him... i am thinking this is what happened with cassidy... it was at the gomorrah if that makes any difference...

how the hell do you not run across THAT glitch when testing the game?!... the bugs are starting to add up... and now i have two worthless companions who i now have to provide a weapon and ammo for... when i get raul and veronica, i am going to make sure i NEVER take them into the casinos mad.gif...


There were signs early on bOnEs.
First of all, for no reason, Boone will kill certain people.
That had me using the "wait here" dialogue early on.
I had to re-load a lot, and learned to save every time we discovered
a new location for the Mojave Walker achievement, because he kills a lot,
and before you know it, he has taken out someone you needed.

The second test after he killed Ringo, one example,
was to look at why he changed weapons. Sometimes I need him in gun mode, not melee.
I learned the wheel selection to put him back on his sniper rifle.
When I saw that it was rare, I knew that any situation where his stuff gets
mixed up with mine would be fatal, in ways.

While he is great companion, like "I wish I had a First Recon guy watching over me"
as they say, no one is perfect. So ever since the early days I've had him waiting a lot.
By the way, he killed Ringo, after the mission, and Ringo was the one to give me my first
deck of cards and teach me how to play Caravan. By then he was accepted into the
Goodsprings community and just hanging out at the bar, Boone shot him for no reason.

Evidentally, he was headed for New Vegas and would have paid me even more than I speeched him for.




@Stoic: One of my earlier posts had me falling for the false dialogue of the
other sniper guy who had disagreements with Boone's wife, so I lead him out there.
When after, even with the note from the lobby safe (Game tells u 2 look there)
Boone got really upset because he said I had no proof. So I re-loaded the game.
I questioned everyone in Novac, and finally found the correct dialogue person
to lead out there
and that is how I acquired Boone.
You will have recognized the Novac resident if you saw them.

In the hardcore mode, companions can die, but not on regular mode.
They just go unconscious like in Fallout 3 - "Dad is unconscious".



@Dup: The map seems smaller but there are supposedly, like 400 locations, compared to FO3's 200.

Yeah i noticed locations popping up much closer together, i thought maybe the map didn't let you zoom in as much as FO3 or something.

I'm not back just yet b0nEs. There has been a problem with my phone/internet wires since i've moved in. I've had out four engineers and four routers sent. Some 'technical engineer' is coming out this week, and should solve my problems.

I'll be honest, I've probably taken less then 20 solid hits since I picked up both companions. Enemies seem to be ignoring me and attacking Boone/Cass and ED-E until I start shooting, so I haven't had much damage to my armor. It doesn't hurt that I'm rocking the Combat Armor, Reinforced Mark II. Armor has a DT of 20, I forget what the helmet has.

Also, the Marksman Carbine has dropped everyone I've encountered with about three headshots.

i have the unique variant of that weapon with a camo skin biggrin.gif... it IS pretty badass... so much so that if i can find a silencer for it, i'll stop using my varmit rifle all together... my varmit rifle has a silencer, mag extension, and night-vision scope... hell, maybe i'll just give to cass to use... she needs something better than a 10mm pistol...

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 chose that over the assault carbine, which seemed like a good idea, except I have 1000+ 5mm rounds I need to convert to something else.

i am thinking that the assault carbine will be my companions weapon of choice when indoors (especially since cass and boone no longer have weapons)... boone's sniper rifle won't do any good indoors, nor will cassidy's hunting rifle... i've got about a thousand rounds too to use up laugh.gif...

@ stoic - damn, i just looked up the location of the 188 trading post and how did i ever miss that?! i must of walked right past it without even noticing it as it's a location you pass on your way north to the strip... i am going to have to circle back and find it...

Did you find one or buy one? The Gun Runners had one, but I didn't want to spend the money.

I couldn't find that note for the life of me. Maybe I'll just go back and blow her head off for good measure.


You have to crack the floor safe in the lobby. I couldn't find anything so I knew it was in there.
Had almost enough lock pick skill but not quite enough, so I used one of those comic books.
That worked and since it was red, you have to do it when she's not there. (Like asleep at night)

I go back to Black Mountain just to get more Assault Carbines. I love those things.
Also the 9mm sub machine gun that looks like a grease gun.

I keep doing quests then re-loading because of the outcomes. Test runs I guess.

Can't keep everyone happy L0L.

I fucking love the skill magazines. I find them more useful than the skill books' permanent bonus. If I'm ten points short of passing a skill check, I either need to find four books, which takes forever, or I could use one magazine, which I can find anywhere.

those are a godsend!! i've noticed too that i am popping pills a lot more than i did in fallout 3, just to pass some dialog checks... i've been paying good 'ol doc mitchell a visit every na 'n den to cure my shakes... of course, there's always fixer to temporarily cure your addictions too laugh.gif...

i think i just discovered something monumental, and something that HAS to be done in the strip... there's a reason why obsidian gave you the option... when your in new vegas, on the strip, send your companions home... but, there should be a couple of options when doing so... ah-HA! one option is to send them back to where you found them... and the other is to send them to the lucky 38... this is a way to not have to worry about the weapon glitch that seems to happen with every character

so when in vegas, send them to the 38 and pick them back up when you leave... or not... cassidy has been sitting up there for a while now by herself... maybe i should send boone for some company laugh.gif... or veronica perhaps??

i did just recruit veronica and ED-E... i like ED-E's perk... i see red marks on the compass every direction i turn and suddenly think, i am surrounded!! but no!! he picked up a nest of scorpions a few clicks out laugh.gif...

Yep the comic books are cool. "Meeting People" is the one I used to have a hard time finding.
Used my last two Wasteland Survival Guides and it boosted my ability to finish up a few recipes
at the campfire. Those were little ones that I had the ingredients for but hadn't the skill yet.


Black Mountain has the Elite Nightkins with the giant sword like Pyramid Head in Silent Hill. (Bumper Sword)
I gave them to Boone to use as his Melee weapon. Wound their legs like Deathclaws in FO3.
Then I take them down with the Incinerator. When the knuckle dragging mutants hear and come
over, kill them and use their Heavy Incinerator for parts. L0L at the evolved centaurs.

I just finished an NCR quest that had me traversing the entire map in a star pattern.
Awesome, seeing the strip at night from the highest point in the hills. By that oasis like place.
Found the Mark II Combat Armor and have it on Boone just to get it home.

Yep ED-E's perk is what had me target practicing from like day one.
Starting with the little animals and bugs, now fearless on the Cazadors.
Seen the Deathclaws but steered clear of them for now. Still enjoying the game.

Anyone else collecting the Snow Globes like I am? Cool little things.
Only have 25 of the rare star bottle caps though.
I figured everyone has like 100 rocket souvenirs and Dino Toys.

Found some of the main survival tricks are, when not going near an NCR camp, using their armor,
I always wear the Legion armor. When up in the hills I've also been wearing the Khan armor.
Usually it's Legion, and they haven't attacked ever since. I also save after key findings or quests.
But this girl won't be running anywhere in her undies, the game is too dangerous.

Now at Level 17 approaching 18. Making my own repair kits. cool.gif
