Thoughtake so far: Dog/God seems pretty cool, as does Dean. I'm loving the Bear Trap Fist

I always lean on Christine, at least until I can deal with the friggin' speakers. She's also downright beastly in a fight.


Interesting but only for the PC.

Looks good, Sharoth! Thanks for sharing!

Did Honest Hearts, now on my way to Dead Money! Wish me luck!

May you never get lost in the surrounding villa.

Currently in the vault getting ready to get the gold.

While I've loved most of the DLC, this ending dungeon is a slog of trial-and-error.

Guess who left the Sierra Madre with 73,000 caps in gold bars? THIS GUY.


Great job Lucky!

Silver Crusade

Aaaaaand I blew it all on that fancy Sniper Rifle for Boone and a fancy Shishkebab for me.


...

What fancy sniper rifle that you BUY is better than Christine's from Big MT?

Or the good ol' Gobi Melon-Popper (admittedly, you need Lockpick 100 for that one, but...)


Who doesn't buy Esther.

The second one, what is it, and where can I find it.

Did you kill who's it's face or sneak out, I wanted to sneak out first time but failed, and I haven't been able to make it through the villa since.

I'm pretty sure if I make it back I'll be able to sneak out.

Not so great for silent kills, but man does it make a mess of any Centurion's head you get in the crosshairs.

Uphill of the Legion camp on the river. I usually give that one to Boone and keep Christine's for my own nefarious purposes. You ever see two men mow down twenty Legion pogues without taking a single injury?

You will.

I'd befriended everyone, so Elijah got torn up by turrets before I punched him over the edge.

That was...therapeutic.

Forgot the name, but I haven't done Old World Blues yet. Figure I'll save that rifle for myself when Boone, ED-E and I charge Hoover Dam.

Antimaterial Rifle with all the mods.

Huh. Never cared for that at all.


It annoys the s&!$ out of me that you can't mod named weapons. When I first got out of the Sierra Madre I dropped 30,000 on mods, and I couldn't install a damn one.

Silver Crusade

Doing Old World Blues. Where are all these fancy weapons everyone keeps talking about?


lucky7 wrote:

Pretty much everywhere.

Old World Blues gives out so much loot it's absurd.

Silver Crusade

The proton axe and the fancy fist are pretty nice, but I don't think I can afford to keep them repaired.

Silver Crusade

Mentally checklisting what I'm going to pack for the dam:

+Boone with the awesome sniper rifle.

+ED-E

+Shishkebab (I have Pyromaniac and Elijah's Ramblings)

+Anabelle (need to get her)

+All the Stimpaks I can afford.

+Anything fancy I find in Lonesome Road.

All you REALLY need is a mean disposition and a willingness to loot the dead...


S!~*loads of Steady, a nice rifle and 100 rounds.

You should have some ammo left over.

Really? I end up with so many of the stupid throwing axes that my proton axe basically stays at full capacity the whole time I'm there.

Ditto with the Saturnite boxing gloves, actually...


Repair and lock picking, the two most essential skills to Jack up early on for any cheap ass prospectors in New Vegas.


I'm actually still plowing my way through Lonesome Road. I'm just at the beginning of the long ass canyon.

So long!!!!

Still I got my storm trooper in duster armor, so yay, I guess. I haven't played in a week either, so.

My 3rd level stealth/guns/speech lass with Skilled and Small Limbs is hanging out with the Boomers right now...

Through Hidden Valley, around Black Mountain, and up the side of the Vegas basin before I've even seen Joe Cobb!

Was actually trying to do Honest Hearts at minimum level, but since you need to deal with the Boomers anyway... took a detour.

Silver Crusade

So as it turns out Boone can't use Bozhar, and neither can I. I've assaulted Black Mountain to get Annabelle. Joined the Brotherhood. Now Arcade, ED-E, and I are dealing with the Boomers (ugh) before I try to tackle Lonesome Road.


Boomers are easy. When in doubt, Turbo can help a shaky performance.


I like having companions to draw their fire.

Admittedly, that lasts for all of two seconds.

Silver Crusade

Their quests are alright, except they require too much walking and everyone calls me a savage. It's very hard not to Saturnite Fist them to California.

Makes me nostalgic for the end of Dead Money.


But, explosives! Explosive ant nests! old cranky dude with an erotic fascination with sunken aeroplanes!

Silver Crusade

I have an 80 or so in Explosives, but I think it was a mistake. The airplane is cool, but that's it.


Eh, you're taking their "savages" stuff too personally... and their fetch quests are way, way more open to the benefits of fast travel than most factions. Once they warm up to you, the Boomers are hella cool. And helping Janet join the group is a fun way to puncture their isolationism.

Also... boom. Heh. Heh. Heh.


And Thump-Thump! It's always worth it to get Thump-Thump. Always.

^Gotta agree with Saul; I really liked the Boomers once I got them to warm up a bit.

Also I giggle every time CY talks about Boomer High-Fives :)

*Boomer High Five!*


Plus isn't there six mini nukes in the ant bunker.

Do you know how many things I can miss with six mini nukes!

Six!


My charming sniper lady got plenty of mileage out of the assault carbine one of the dead Boomers in the ant bunker has... it made Honest Hearts (which CAN be challenging, if you start it before sixth level... and don't have an Assault Carbine on tap) a hilarious exercise in, "oh, the White Legs have spotted me? Then I can go loud. Sorry!"

Where CY worships at the altar of Explosives, I fear I will be a Gun-fiend until my dying days.

And Ratslayer is just so satisfying to use.


Hey! I'm more complex than that!

For instance I've recently become a big fan of the Super Heated Cross Cut Eye Popping Upper Cut Of Death.

But I mean, you still gotta keep Annabelle happy.

keeps sifting through the gore, severed limbs, and burned debris for bottle caps, ammo, scotch, and teddy bears.

Silver Crusade

Unarmed/Melee and Energy Weapons for me!

Boomers done, now heading to Hoover Dam.

Silver Crusade

Holy cow, you can Speech Check the Legate? That's awesome!


Ha! I did that! It's fun! Stupid a@*&!*! is a chump. :-)


I think Elijah in Dead Money is the only final encounter you CAN'T Speech check.

Lonesome Road is now under my belt. Decided to nuke both the NCR and the Legion.

I love this game.


You can nuke them both...


I'm not nuking either this time, I didn't find the nuke sites to be all that interesting or fun.

Final DLC Rankings (Worst to Best)

4. Lonesome Road: Essentially a long corridor filled with very powerful enemies. I loved Ulysses and the Divide, but actually playing was a chore.

3. Honest Hearts: I was very over leveled for this one, but there wasn't much story-wise. Graham, the best part, fell kind of flat for me (although I love the implication of my Black Widow Courier having his, Daniel's, and Chalk's clothing) coupled with a baffling "moral dilemma" that gave me Final Fantasy flashbacks.

2. Old World Blues: the only DLC to make me laugh out loud, Old World Blues has a truly unique aesthetic, and the Big Empty is a joy to ex0lore.

1. Dead Money: essentially Peak Obsidian; brilliant characters and themes marred by time and budget constraints. I almost feel like they wanted this DLC to play like Bioshock, and they fell flat on their face. But I love it regardless.
