I'm sad you didn't show off the ghouls. First time I played FONV, I went west of Primm, past the drive in, and ran into some ghouls. I did alright against the feral ghouls and the roamers, but then I found out I aggroed a reaver or two. I died obviously. But I opened the Casino on my second playthrough. Really enjoying the playthrough, though. Never knew about Ghost though, I always just headed on through to Nipton, or sometimes bypassed it entirely.

Slightly Less Suicidal Shortcuts

So, has anything in this game geniunely scared you? Either something purposefully in the game or some sort of random suprise or bizarre glitch?

I found parts of Dead Money to be a bit scary. And I've already told the story of when I saw my first deathclaw.

Other than that, no. I do remember when I saw the crawler for the first time in Fable 3. I shreeked like a little girl

The Deathclaw stalking inside the house reminds me of Jurassic Park.

Things scaring me? That's easy to do for me. The sound of Feral Ghouls unnerves me. The atmosphere of Dead Money did the same. But the one time I had a freak out moment was actually in Old World Blues. I think it's the research station where you find the Stealth Suit Mk II. The lowest level has some tunnels you can go through. You go to the end and find a room with some minor loot, then head back out the way you came. But then you start getting attacked by Nightstalkers. It caught me off guard and made me lose my shit for a moment.

Hey, just because someone/something is blind doesn't mean they can't have superior senses, looks like you need to go play Katawa Shoujo.

Hmmm, well I've been startled by things in games due to them jumping out of nowhere.

TopazFusion:
Anyone else annoyed by the fact that (monster type) enemies can somehow open doors, and close them behind themselves?

No, it doesn't annoy me.

How Did You Think It Would End?

What did you think of how the Legion was introduced in this game?

AlternatePFG:
Heading back down the road again

Oh yeah, I forgot to introduce it, I picked up a Caravan Shotgun awhile ago. This is one of my favorite weapons in the game, it's a shotgun with two shots per clip.

Common misconception, but a "clip" is not used in this sort of weapon. Nor are clips and magazines the same thing. This is an Over/Under shotgun, so it has neither

What did you think of how the Legion was introduced in this game?

Effective. Anyone who lashes people to crosses is a force to be reckoned wiht.

NOTE: You doubled up screenshots quite often in this post. You didn't even have a proper image of Vulpes.

Seemed a bit harsh, but it did make them out to be a major player and worthy adversary.

However, what I did really like about it was the comparison between them and the NCR. When you first meet the NCR in Primm they're getting their asses kicked by a bunch of cut-off gangers with crappy equipment.

When you meet the Legion, they've cleared an entire town of gangers through both force and charismatic fear.

We'll get around to do that little sidequest later.

Remember to bring Boone with you when you do that quest.

He and I both use Imgur, and that can be a common problem some times. Good program otherwise though.

Also, Vulpes just seems silly to me. Like, he's almost comedic. Anyone else feel that?

Are you referring to the fact that he looks like he's about to go to sleep with his blindfold and fuzzy wolf head pajamas?

Sometimes Imgur doesn't copy when you hit copy. If you don't open any other tabs though, I've found that's usually not a problem.

Well, it's not that. I mean, I have a pair of wolf head pajamas. Don't you?

Ahhh, well you should probably tell him that :D

No, but I do have my Musashi Miyamoto pajamas.
That's a character from Samurai Warriors 2. A lot of people like to joke about how his design looks like fluffy pajamas considering he is supposed to be a master swordsman.

Thanks for pointing that out, didn't realize it till now. I'll fix it right away.

What did you think of how the Legion was introduced in this game?

For an Obsidian game, the Legion is pretty clear-cut evil. What makes them interesting is that there is some merit to their method despite its evil-ness. They bring security to those who ally with them (unless you're a woman or a soldier). And in a world like Fallout's, I'm not so certain that a lot of people wouldn't forsake their morals for such security.

Even in my Legion playthrough, I played it as a guy who was more wanting that security than as one who identified with the Legion's views. Caesar became a better character to me in that run of the game, but still damn evil.

The first time I encountered the legion, though? Killed them. I was a higher level than the game intended because I sequence broke the game by going straight to New Vegas after Primm (though I backtracked to Goodspring and then made the pretty straight run to New Vegas from there. I mentioned this earlier in this thread, though). It was still pretty tough because I'm not a hoarder. I sell everything. So I had no dynamite, no mines, no grenades, nothing explosive. Just Driver Nephi's golf driver.

I'm not a "fan" of them per se, I just don't like to jump to conclusions, that's all.

Back to business.

I wouldn't call it "clear-cut" due to the fact that they are reasonable, or at least both Caesar and Lanius are to some degree. And if you look at the head honchos of the NCR (Kimball, Moore, Oliver) they're pretty bone-headed and nigh movable in their claims.

What makes them interesting is that there is some merit to their method despite its evil-ness. They bring security to those who ally with them (unless you're a woman or a soldier). And in a world like Fallout's, I'm not so certain that a lot of people wouldn't forsake their morals for such security.

It's actually not that far from the truth in real life.

Now this isn't 100%, no doubt truth, but I recall some stories before and after the capture of Saddam that there were people who actually liked aspects of his regime, one being that some people felt safe as crime rates were low due to almost zero-tolerance. Even today in some cities such as Dubai they have zero tolerance for crime, which means less crime, which leads to more safety of civilians.
I shouldn't use real life examples when talking about a video game, but I can't help myself
I've been waiting for this since the Fallout 3 LP

I know you're not a "fan" really. I just enjoy pointing out how you decimated me in a debate we had over that issue. (No, really. You trounced me. No two ways about it)

That's why I like these LP threads. It's a great way to make friends and have conversations about fun stuff. Like the morality of men who dress up as Romans and run around the wasteland enslaving ALL the people.

Actually, I was referring to this meme:

Nothing more. I can't debate the legion with you. Your tactical genius is just too much!

The Legion really just exploits the evil that already exists in the wasteland. There are already plenty of horrible raiders and slavers around but everything they do is for selfish and destructive purposes, and they accomplish nothing in the end. The Legion simply redirects all that for the purpose of building an empire that will eventually outgrow such cruelties.

Another update mostly comprised of travelling between areas. This should become less common once we reach New Vegas since the quest areas are usually more self contained.

We do get a couple major things accomplished this update though.

Rescue Mission (Kinda)

Do you like the Companion Wheel? Did you get much use out of it?

Not more than telling a person to stay in a particular place, no.

That, and I didn't use the companions much. They got in the way too much.

I wish you said something along the lines of "Open the door get on the floor everybody walk into the dinosuar" when entering the gift shop.
As for the companion wheel, I personalty love it. The wheel makes dealing with companions so much faster.

I always had a companion with me so I used the wheel quite a lot considering I'm a bit of a hoarder.

Also, I'm going to assume you don't really intend on doing much with Boone in this playthrough? Considering you just completed a quest that can raise his approval.

I loved that part in Lonesome Road where the E3 trailer became canon, that was hilarious.

AlternatePFG:

Yes! So much better than Fallout 1(recently played) and Fallout 3. Used it a fair amount.

So you will get Boone soon? Best Compainonen ever!

MacNille:

We'll pretty much getting all companions this playthrough and going through their respective sidequests. As for how much I use each of them, I dunno, haven't decided yet. My personal favorite companion in this game was probably Veronica. (If we aren't counting DLC of course, Dean Domino from Dead Money was my favorite of any in the whole game)

Edit: Completely forgot about Arcade Gannon. He was probably my favorite companion in the main game at least, though there wasn't a single one that I didn't really like.

I wasnt so much scared of Dead money as I was actually seething blind with rage at how fucked up the level was.

Cant move towards certain places, cant kill holograms, cant stay in one place too long, keep moving moving moving.

I reloaded that DLC more than entire rest of the game combined, including the other DLC missions.

This sidequest is completely based on dialogue, so lots of text, not so many pictures.

Did you do this quest correctly the first time? Also, what did you think of No-Bark?

I did complete the quest with the right person the first time around. IIRC,

No-Bark was pretty amusing to talk to, although it was surprising how much useful information he blurted out, if you read between the lines.

FUN FACT: The dinosaur statue at Novac has three fingers on each hand, and therefore is not a Tyrannosaurus.

AlternatePFG:

Yes I did.

As for No-Bark he was one of my favourite characters in the game; he made me laugh out loud more than once.

It's a pistol that uses 5.56mm ammo. It's pretty much just the.223 pistol from Fallout 1 and 2. According to the wiki, by extension, it's also based off of the gun that the protagonist of the movie Blade Runner uses.

You forgot to mention that it has one of the most awesome looking reload animations in the game.

This is Boone. He is the other sniper, he is up here during the night while Manny is here during the day.

Did anyone else think "OMG it's Kovu!", when they first met Boone?

No? Just me?

Fun fact - A normal Legion trooper's armor is mostly composed of sports equipment. Before you start saying "Well, AlternatePFG that was obvious and I saw it right away" I'd like to point out that it took me three playthroughs before I finally realized it.

It took me about three playthroughs to realise the dinosaur statue is holding a thermometer.

"There's been things of a disturbing nature going on at the McBride Corral. Seems every night one of their herd meets a most unnatural death, and always there's holes all over the body. Work of the chupacabra, the livestock vampire, says No-Bark, but they don't pay no mind. Too many holes, they say, and there's bullets in them. Well, says No-Bark, we got a chupacabra with an automatic weapon. And that's when they get real quiet, 'cause now they see the predicament we're in."

:D

I already liked No-Bark, but the fact that he mentons the Chupacabra makes him that much more awesome.

I didn't do it right the first time. I looted the hell out of that safe and found it by dumb luck.

The quest though, is without a doubt has the best reward. That cap is just plain amazing. 5% crit boost plus 1 perception? That essentially equal to 5 luck and 1 perception. In my opinion, it's the best hat out there, despite it having no DT.
