      have you updated your system?

      apparently a patch came out and was automatically downloaded for me on steam. not sure how it works on consoles.

      Would love to pick this up (huge fallout 3 fan), but I think I might wait and let the patches come out, maybe pickup a GOTY edition if I can stomach waiting that long.

      I have a list of games I want to get. I am currently combing through February of 2009, so next up is Flower followed by Red Faction: Guerrilla. Not only can I get games really cheap, but a lot of GOTY edition come out with everything in one shot. Although when GOTY edition are release, they get bumped to the end of the list again. Wow, I need to get out more.

      BoS are in a place called Hidden Valley. basically, just walk due east from Goodsprings - it's not too far. once you get there, two sets of power armor can be found east of the main bunker in a crater. you'll need to go through the perimeter fence, and over a hill. there is a lot of radiation there, most i remember was 8 rads/sec.

      you can't wear it though since you're not trained for it.

      started playing this the other day, and it just seems stale now. the new gameplay ideas are nice, and the fallout character progression is as fun as ever.

      but the ridiculously janky NPC's and combat is just so far behind the times anymore. melee combat in these games is just awful

      While I like this game, and put about 5 hours on it this weekend. There are times where I was like, man, this is really just Fallout 3.5. Everything looks identical, and a large amount of things were just simply copied and pasted into New Vegas. It's Fallout 3 with a new story.

      I feel like I'm just putting more hours into Fallout 3, and not even playing a new game at all.

      In the end, I loved Fallout 3. So I'm happily playing this... and as usual, I'll get more than my moneys worth out of the game. But I'm not blind... This is Fallout 3 with a new map and story.

      I agree though, the Bethesda games are extremely dated.

      bingo. I knew exactly what I was getting when I bought this but at the same time it is kind of like a $60 dlc. I'm happy with it but I feel like they could have done more.

      In the same exact time frame (fable 2 and fallout 3 came out within a week of each other) it seems like Fable 3 made a much bigger step.

      i agree, this is more like a HUGE add-on to fallout 3 more than it is a completely new game.

      I loved Fallout 3, played the DLC, and that game seemed old then. New Vegas is fun, I'm addicted (put 20 some odd hours in since the game came out last week), but it seems older than ever. I feel like the guys who still play FFVII or Ultima Online.

      Don't kill them! They're nice! Just don't tease them for taking the bunny slopes.

      i finished the main quest last night after about 10 hours of killing EVERYONE in my path

      well I said previously I only had ~50 repair and was going to keep it that way, but at 90 you get the perk that allows you to fix things with other loosely related items, I had to do it. This way my rare weapons can get fixed, and I can use them without feeling bad.

      Boone + Q35 plasma is a deadly combo BTW.

      On that topic, make sure to check the perks that are not highlighted, and make sure you know the requirements if they seem interesting!

      Next I think is speech, I can't do the Khan convince everyone to leave Caesar without it.

ED-E disappears, his game is fked because he's made the number one fallout mistake of all time, didn't make multiple saves.

      haha, I think he means have multiple save files, so if he screws up, or gets stuck, he can go back to an earlier save. Not that he only saved one time.

      I'm pretty sure that JUST happened to me, lost about 40 minutes of gameplay because I was relying on the autosave feature.

      I also lost 250 lbs worth of stuff by loaning him to people during his quest.

      Apart from that... Fun game, start using the bigger guns, Rock-It Launcher is in the Boomers territory BTW.

      I've left my robo-dog somewhere, I'm at this point where every time I go into a building he has to wait outside. So I've left him somewhere, anyone have any idea how to track companions, or dismiss them remotely?

      I haven't upgraded ED-E yet, but I've read that when you get him back it isn't the same ED-E. Your items are still on the one you sent for upgrading. The ED-E your supposedly getting back is a whole other ED-E so he has none of your inventory. I think on the PC version there's some input or however that works you could put in to keep your stuff.

      I'm traveling with Boone and ED-E right now. When they get stuck I normally move a couple feet hit wait for an hour then they will be right near me and unstuck. Thing is ED-E flies. Even when I jump down small mountains, he takes the long way around to my position.

      I have 2 save files on this game along with the autosave. Yesterday after completing a quest the game froze after exiting a house. I hadn't manual saved for maybe a half hour. It said saving when the game froze. I thought maybe my data was going to be corrupted or something. Restarted the ps3 and then the game had to update. Got back in the game, but my file was okay. And right were it froze.

      How do you accesses ED-E and get extra info from it like the quest says?

      Certain people you talk to will trigger ED-E.

      Probably better than me trying to explain it.
