Yeah, it can get frustrating. I did like the stealth element for the main Sahara Madre Hotel, but it was so tiresome at times. Taking out the power for the holograms in the first area a top the rafters left me stumped for more than an hour.

Yeah, the holograms inside the hotel are the worst!

Nah, they're a cakewalk. It's the friggin' bomb collar-palooza that's the worst.

So, any luck with the game Capt. or did you swap to something else.

I managed to finish up everything of note in Inquisition and have started up Witcher 3.


I kind of lost focus as soon as it warmed up outside. Got my garden planted though (for less then twenty bucks even!), pulled my Tommy John tendon or whatever in my elbow playing basketball, so I've been dealing with that (though I'm now pain free!).

Being stuck in the s%!%hole that is the Sierra Madre doesn't help I guess. But I figure, when I return I'll have better focus.

I've also been thinking about starting a different game, maybe revisit Red Dead Redemption, I never really played much attention to the plot. How is the zombie add on for that.


I might also track down super Skyrim or whatever, but I have a complicated relationship with Skyrim.

I thought of starting up Skyrim. I managed to play enough of it the first time to run through the main story and some side stuff before my system died and it took 5 months for repair/replacement.

I have been playing Rayman Legends just for kicks and it is oddly addicting. I should probably get back into Witcher 3, but the leveling and exploration is notably different from 2. Not that it is a terrible thing, but it is taking a lot of adjustment.

I've moved recently from Skyrim to Dark Souls...apparently because I hate myself and have been feeling far too confident as a person lately, and wanted to do something to rectify that.

Can't you just part your hair differently. :-D

I've thought about starting a new season on Madden 12 (the last one I got) but I'm confident if I ignore it, it'll go away. :-)

Alright, I've finished every last little thing Rayman Legends except some achievements. Not really too interested in finishing those. Time to start Witcher 3 in earnest.

Wow! It's been awhile since I've been back here, Still not really into video games right now. I have a tomato plant of some sort that's about four and a half feet tall.

I hope everyone else is having a good (not technically) summer so far. :-)

Oh right, that's why I haven't played in over a month.

Dead f%!*ing Money.


Maybe it's time for that legion play through. But as a woman, really show those a+@!%** pieces of s~$# how to do evil right.

That sounds wrong...

Sounds right to me. Women can perfect evil. Our wives are the exceptions, not the rules.

Remember ex girlfriends. That's how I appreciate my wife so much...

I'm also stuck in stupid Dead Money. Normally I'd skip it, but my legion character is melee and Elijah's Ramblings are so useful for melee.

I did kill Joshua Graham though and saved myself his pissant stupid quest lines just to take his armor (the only reason I do Utah). Felt right as a legionnaire to do Caesar's will that way, even if he doesn't get credit.

My challenge for myself once I have the time is a Good Karma Female Legion playthrough- and not just good karma from killing Fiends, but actually doing things the reasonably humane way whenever possible.


We'll see, I really like this play through, I just got lost and f@$@ed up somehow getting Christine to her switching station. Found the switching station, just... I don't know honestly, it's been forever. Tried playing this morning but no progress was made at all. Might just hit f!@& it, and look online *shudder*

That does sound fun. :-)


F$%@ing right i went back to the Before Dead Money times and went down The Lonesome Road.

Which is practically paradise compared to Dead f$*&ing Money.

Also, i discovered Hotel Hell in the Vegas wasteland, which was weirdly underwhelming.

I'm glad I went to Big MT before Lonesome Road, there's something cathartic about punching Deathclaws to death with a Super Heated Saturnite Fist.

~GRINS~ That sounds like fun! I honestly just prefer to reach out and touch them with my 50 cal sniper rifle.


They're sneaksy sometimes. This particular one got the drop on me whilst I was looting a bus.

Nothing beats a good super heated uppercut or five.

Still, I wish there was an animation of the spine coming off with the head when you do a killing uppercut.


Usually I hit them with my "34 pieces of" Flare Gun then pound them in the legs with Thump-Thump or sweet Annabelle until they're dead.

But this works too. :-)

This is what my next Fallout character will be like.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That's pretty much what my Fallout New Vegas character looks like.

It's actually really easy to recreate. :-)

As Nobodyshome has said, if you're spending hours playing a video game you might as well have something nice to look at. :-)

I'm especially fond of Fallout's slow walk with women, and I definitely don't have my character walk through the wastelands in her underwear, that'd be crazy...

If it's the one I'm thinking of, that's LR straight-up cheating... that Deathclaw doesn't exist until you go into the bus and started looting the goodies, at which point the thing spawns on top of the trailer/bus/whatever.

Thematically, I think it's meant to be jumping down from the overpass above you, but yeah... it's not sneaky in a conventional sense.


Yep, usually I just avoid it but I was feeling punchy. :-)

The one that tried sneaking up when I was getting mauled by tunnelers didn't fare so well.

Poor thing didn't realize I was just out the blast radius of my Fatman.

I bet he wishes he didn't stop to maul the tunnelers :-)


Speaking of tunnelers, I'm wiping those sparkly little bastards out of every little s%+%hole and cranny those dick jockeys climb out of.

34 pieces of Flare Gun then pound them with Thump-Thump as they scurry away.

A$**%!&s.


Heh. Tunnelers.

Ulysses can say they're going to take over the Mojave, but they sure scream and die a lot...

Assault Carbine is love. Assault Carbine is life.

Man I get pissed that you can't dual wield in that game. Flare gun in one hand and just about anything in the other would be the best.

Pretty stupid that you can't even dual wield in FO4, given it came out years after Skyrim, and they figured out how to do that in Skyrim...


I suspect it's VATS related.


Doctor Usangi, after curing my addiction to Med-X, "you really shouldn't use those chems so much"

"You don't understand, it's the armor doing it"

I don't think she believed me (yet she had no problem taking my 50 caps)

The Courier's Mile is no joke, I must've used at least two dozen doses of Rad-X and Radaway.

At first I spotted one dude and I was quite confident i could handle it, assuming it was just a long road with spaced out opponents. I was unaware I'd entered an arena of death and blasted limbs.

After the first guy didn't die quickly from half a dozen rounds to the face from That Gun and six more people started swarming out of the woodwork I popped some steady, knocked a head off with my super heated, and started launching missiles.

Then the Deathclaw arrived.

Round two was slightly less chaotic, in that when the Deathclaw showed up again I tossed a flashbang grenade, and hid around the corner, periodically launching missiles and flares, until one guy with a shoulder mounted machine gun was the last one standing, which my super heated uppercut put an end to.

After that it was child's play cleaning up the last of the Deathclaws and marked men.

All told I used 3 tiny tots, 20+ stimpaks, God knows how much Med-X, 30 missiles, 27 Radaway, and a whole lot of super heated death punching.

Well, well, well, what do we have here! This will be fun to try out after work!


That is one creepy looking weapon.

The Slor shall know the suffering of a hundred dying Deathclaws tonight.


So far, due to choosing poorly I've mauled exactly one Freeside thug.

I'm starting to regret helping the Kings. So much walking!


Oh yay.

A corrupted save wiped out what little progress I made last night.

Guess it's time to nuke the Deathclaw quarry as a form of extreme therapy.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Ah, Bethesda, you make nothing but the highest quality - except when it's a buggy ass pile of s$*%.

I guess apparently the same thing is true of Obsidian.


That felt good!

Christine's Rifle, a willingness to become addicted to Steady, and 3 Mininukes for the win!


~laughter~ I am glad that you are enjoying Fallout NV.


Even a year later, I'm still finding new stuff. :-)

At some point, I'd like to actively search for Skyrim Legendary Edition around these parts, but it's hard to remember it and have twenty bucks to spend at the same time. It's a balancing act I've been unsuccessful at thus far.


eBay?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

I don't do EBay.

I suppose Amazon, but it's not all that important.

Maybe when my birthday rolls around. :-)

In general I don't care for internet shopping and prefer to get things at the store.


It occurs to me Iron Gods can be converted to the Fallout setting without a lot of effort.

Some effort though, especially with magic and what not.

It had just occurred to me, the first book turns into an abandoned Vault so easily.

Hmmm...


Wal-Mart, Target, or any game store in the mall. They should have it around. Maybe.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Target does not, won't go to Wal-Mart, the malls here are just a food court, Apple Store and places in-between to get mugged for your Apple products, I won't go without being armed first.

Gamestop is on our side of town, but it's out of the way just enough to make it annoying. but that's where i'll end up going.

BestBuy also doesn't have it.


I found Camp Golf, which doesn't seem as bad as the a~!#!*+s there make it out to be.

Negotiated a truce between the NCR and the Kings, did the King's Charlie work.

Next up, I can either help Rex find a brain or go see what all the hubbub is about at Hoover Dam.

For the first time I read the entire story of the survivor in Zion.

That's...it's just so beautiful. It would make a gorgeous movie. Well done, Obsidian. Well done.
