You must! They have it on Hulu, especially if you're running a Hell's Vengeance campaign.

My hilljack internet is not terribly Hulu-friendly, sir. I'll add it to my pile of "maybe someday" shows.


Well, I certainly can't make you watch it. I'll say the DVDs for seasons are getting super cheap, 10-20 bucks, and totally worth it. :-)


Because I wasn't paying attention when chatting with Veronica, evidently she's not leaving the Brotherhood.

Time for plan B(oone).


Or get idolized by the Brotherhood and broker an alliance...


Well, I've had a super stressful week with my sick little guy, and Skyrim seriously pissed me off this summer.

So, New plan, get to the Jebediah gorge or whatever it is at the lowest possible level, we'll see how low I can go.

Or I might see where I left off, evidently screwing s~&% up it looks like.


Maybe I'll go the whole Caesar sleeper agent angle, kill him from the inside. :-)

Definitely not setting foot near the Sierra Madre.

Sierra Madre misses you and wants you back!


All *beep beep* head goes boom and no liquor make Captain Yesterday go something, something.

Darn it, meant to say "and no bars of gold"

Oh well. :-)

Got myself all patched up by Doc, got out the door and then the wife and kids returned with dinner, so it'll have to wait till later.

Took built to destroy and I think hoarder this time, jacked up intelligence and luck, repair, and guns and named myself Flagg.

New Vegas will not be a better place after I'm done.

I plan to try to make it to the caravan with as few fights as possible.


So far I've looted the old schoolhouse on the way out of town then had to go get new keyboard for the computer because our five year old was being five. :-)


Made it to Honest Hearts a third of the way through third level, a personal all time low.

Heeeeeyyyy, it might actually be challenging!

I love Honest Hearts, but it's often like playing on easy mode by the time I get to it...


I'm still packing some heat though, I flipped the weapons I got off the viper gang strays and powder gang boys at the Gunrunners on the way past.

Might regret forgetting to pick up some extra Stimpaks, but what are you gonna do. Can't remember everything.


Honestly, I think the reason I haven't liked Honest Hearts is because it's too easy by the time I get there.

So I'm going to really immerse myself in the story, so we'll see. :-)


That'll teach me not to accidentally put my armor in the crate before going to Mount Zion.

G%#!##n tribal armor looks like a f+*&ing Appalachian Onesie.

The baseball cap and biker goggles aren't helping matters either.


Eh, Graham's awesome-looking armor at the end should more than make up for it...


Yeah, but in the meantime I can't go to third person view without laughing.

Appalachian Onesies do not include dignity.

The baseball cap and biker goggles aren't helping matters either.

Hey, Captain, I got New Vegas today. I'm only level 9, but I've already started the Wild Card quests. I feel like I'm missing out on a ton of cool stuff, but I don't know where to go to find it.

Where would you recommend I go?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Does it have the DLC I assume.

Find Veronica, she's chilling at a rest stop 129 or something. Once you have her you can go to the Hidden Valley and do brotherhood missions.

My first stop though would be the air force base in the upper right corner. Nothing beats making the Boomer run and getting high fives at the end.

Big MT is great if you're sick of what an a!*&#&! your brain is and just want it removed (trust me, your brain is an a@@!#%%).

Beware of Dead Money!

I can give more advice after work, good luck! It's the best video game I ever played!

Thanks Sharoth and Thegreenbeansaredonegamer for recommending it!

Silver Crusade

Gonna be honest, Dead Money looks awesome, except that my character is gun focused.

I met Veronica, but I'm currently running with Boone and Rex. I also have a favor from the King floating around, so I don't know what to do with that.

I know I want to meet all the companions, at least to get their ending slides after Hoover Dam.

Dead Money is many things, but I'm not sure "awesome" is one of them...


Dead Money is the Monopoly of expansions.

A game of monopoly sounds, at first, like a good game.

There has never been a game of monopoly that ended with anyone happy. Someone always rage quits. Friendships end. Families stop speaking to one another.

We'll see how you feel when you get lost and all you hear is a quickening beep beep beep beep beep beep beep...

So far Phillip O'Sullivan (Good Natured, Small Frame, gun specialist) has:

+Bypassed whatever quest you do in Novac via Confirmed Bachelor (that cracked me up).

+Diplomacized my way through Boulder and left the Khans to die. (Payback for letting me die outside Goodsprings).

+Did a bunch of chores for King (high Medicine helped there.)

Then there was killing Bennie: My multiple assaults via silent pis to failed, so I did something more...unconventional.

A Stealth Boy later, I stole a grenadequate from one of Bennie's bodyguards and stuffed it in his pants. It was satisfying, to say the least.

I also just finished killing Mr. House, so there's that option gone.


I'd go see the Boomers at the air force base, or find ED-E in Primm, or maybe The Lonesome Road.

I think you'll also have a lot of fun at Big MT.

I've never had the confirmed bachelor trait, usually I play as a girl and take Black Widow. :-)

O'Sullivan is loosely based on myself, so I sorta had to take Confirmed Bachelor or else my boyfriend would be giving me dirty looks. ;)


My favorite way to kill Benny.

Take black widow, convince him you'll shag in the casino, follow him up to his room, close the door and beat him to death with your bare fists, then take his suit and dump it in the same grave he tried to leave you in. :-)

And then go to the air force base for boomer high fives.

I recently discovered the joy of pants-mining myself. My favorite part of the Black Widow option is that you can just leave him, and roleplay a courier who somehow fell in love with Benny. Not that he deserves you; he didn't even try to make breakfast. :)


I let the Legion capture him, then cut him to ribbons in the arena. It makes the Legion happy. Happy Legion = Lucky Shades item = Happy Crit Monkey character (they can be worn with the crit beret).

Okay, this Robot tour guide in Prim is hilarious.


I let the legion capture him my first time then capped him in the head when I stormed Caesar's camp.

But no, I'm just a tease, I never actually sleep with anyone. :-)


Dead Money is my favorite of all the DLCs, followed by Honest Hearts. But then again, I always did like good stories. But I do agree that Dead Money is a rough DLC.

I am glad that you are enjoying Fallout New Vegas so much, CY. I will probably replay it sometime next year. I should have forgotten enough to make it sort of fresh again.


Seriously, Honest Hearts is even easy at third level. Maybe easier because I'm being a more thorough scavenger.

Although, I shouldn't get too cocky, I'm still Joshua's errand boy.

Great, now Dry-Humps-Chalk is off scalping the other guys along the riverbank on his own. For being the guy that likes to hang on the highest mountains, he sure does fall off cliffs an awful lot.


For me, Honest Hearts was all about the story. Yes, it is easy, but the story is worth it.

The story is pretty good, a little too preachy sometimes, but not obnoxiously so.

Which is really hard to do in video games. :-)

Yes. In either way, it was a Pyrrhic victory for the player. Loose a wonder of the world or loose a tribe's "innocence"? I always chose staying and fighting because I felt it was worth preserving Zion for the future. But it hurt.

Edit - Yes, I really got into the story and how it affected my character.


Captain Yesterday, another game that I can't suggest enough is Baldur's Gate I & II. Give them a shot if you have never played them. Good Old Games has several sales a year and it plays on older computers.


I have to make a conscious effort to evacuate Zion. As I said a few pages back, it's about the only real estate in the Fallout-verse worth fighting for,and the parts the White Legs are in are such dumps compared to the rest of it...

Well, that, and the Survivor's Journals make letting those scumbags have Zion a non-starter.

As for Benny... once, just to be a jerk, I helped him escape the Legion. And then tore every single inhabitant of Caesar's tent asunder with my bare hands.

Good times.

I've tried to do the whole Daniel angle but I always end up on Joshua's somehow.

Never has an opinion been so objectively wrong...

(I like the idea of what Dead Money is trying to do, but it just wasn't much fun to do it)


Big MT cracked me up, to think all the problems of the New Vegas region can pretty much all be tied back to a bunch of b~@#+@$ crazy brains in jars that were just bored.


Found one of that guy's caves, totally looted the s@~& out of it.

Totally waltzed in there with Huffs-Chalk and then discovered the place was lousy with spore carriers.

Sadly for them, I just found a bunch of Psycho, and 40mm grenades.

Sadly for me, I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it.

Sadly for Licks-Chalk I also couldn't hit s%#~ with any other gun.

Thankfully, I had 12 bullets for my hunting rifle and got a crit with nearly every shot. Deadpool would be so proud!

Please note, I have lots of ammo, but at fifth level and jacking up my repair skills, my weapon skills have fallen behind, which crit fishing perks and weapons help mitigate.


Also there ain't s%+& for hunting rifle ammo up in those canyons.


Pick up Hand Loader. It is on my top 5 perks list.


Got it, not sure what the benefit is yet, but it will reveal itself I'm sure.


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

I used to have Baldur's Gate one and two and Warcraft, but I didn't really get enough play time on the computer.

Console is the place for me.

And yes, they were very good, I just couldn't get enough time to get into them at the time.

Silver Crusade

Killed House, killed Caesar, had fun with Boone but ditched him for Lily. Should I go Wild Card or NCR?
