Fallout: New Vegas

I've been playing it since Tuesday. I've got the chip back and I'm working on clearing out all the quests I've built up before I move on with the store. Trouble is I end up picking up two more quests for every one I finish. :awesome:

Anyone else run into Death Claws yet? I'd like to find whoever at Obsidian desided that Death Claws needed to be ever bigger douche bags than they were before. Even on Very Easy settings with my most powerful gun, with armor piercing bullets (yeah, the fuckers are armored) they won't die. And they attack two and three at a time. :angry:

if you're having a lot of trouble with them you're probably very underleveled or have shitty weapons. just target their legs to cripple them and run away.

I'm level 20 :closedeyes:

I haven't really seen any random ones yet. I'm trying to get into the quarry because I need to speak to some ass hole who is standing in the middle of it for a mission. The Quarry is FULL of the damned things. I can take out the ones on the outside, but once I'm in it's a total gang rape. I even brought a partner with me for them to chew on.

you're still a little underleveled. :tongue:

equip bullets that do higher damage over time more so than straight damage, and carry around armor piercing rounds. pump them full of the ammo that does damage over time, and then cripple their legs. it'll slow them down enough for you to work on the next one, and over time they'll die.

I still haven't figured out how to equip the different types of ammo, anyway I did all the quests like clearing out the ghouls in the rocket ship etc, looks like my destination is leading me to New Vegas now.

Wearing NCR Armor

if you're on pc press '2' when the weapon you want to swap ammo is equipped

OK, so I started over. This time I have 9 perception instead of 5. I'm a god with the 9mm. I cleared out the whole Quarry with a sniper rifle. I even took out the Mother Deathclaw with one shot. :awesome: Not a single one of them detected me.

should I sell the NCR dollars? or are they needed in NCR camps to buy stuff? I have a SHIT TON.

The only use I've found for them is turning them in for chips at the casinos.

Well, I'm loving the game but I really don't dig the reputation armors. I'd love to wear the NCR armor, but it drops all my reps to neutral. Hopefully there's a non-rep tagged armor in the future because I love the NCR look.

ehh, that didnt really bother me too much. i just made sure to switch it out when I needed to. then when I got t-51b I stopped wearing my veteran ranger armor completely

I'm sure there will be a mod to add them in without the rep modifiers anytime now. The first version of FOOK is out already, that's probably where you'll see it crop up.

The ten or so hours I've played of New Vegas was fantastic. Up until I hit a bit where the game drops random characters and enemies out into the field when I left any location.

A huge chunk of important, quest-giving characters and traders fucking died on me simply because the game spit them out in random places along with hostile enemies. Hopefully by the time GotY edition comes out they'll have this shit ironed out.
