New Vegas


Fallout New Vegas comes out this Friday. I have it pre-ordered and pre-loaded on Steam, can't wait to play it. Will anyone be joining in the fun of scouring the wasteland for snowglobes?

Your steam client should tell you that I had exactly the same idea.

I found out that Classic DLC is a must for hardcore mode. Also the anti-NCR(bad guy) story-line is not for 1st-timers, at least that's the idea I've got.

What is the classic DLC? I haven't heard anything about it. What does it add to hardcore mode?

On my first (and so far only) playthrough I was friendly with the NCR and enemies with the legion. Then at the end I killed House and claimed Vegas for myself.

On my next playthrough I'll ramp it up to hard difficulty, I'll chose the Wild Card perk and play on hardcore. I didn't feel comfortable doing any of that on my first playthrough as I like to know what to expect.

Deathclaws. Expect Deathclaws.

I encountered deathclaws in my first play through, and to be honest the experience was a bit lacklustre. To begin with they were challenging, but as soon as I got my hands on a sniper rifle (especially the unique sniper rifle found in the ^&"%£$'£ &*"0) it became simple. Take em out from range. The toughest lot of deathclaws was the cave with the two legendary twats, but even then a turbo+jet+Laser RCW sorted them out with only Boone dropping and ED-E was still up and sniping away (God damn I love ED-E).

With the Gobi the quarry was piss easy. Climb high, headshot, ???, profit. (although there really wasn't much profit to be had there)

Try them on hard.

And I prefer the Antimaterial rifle myself. With Incendiaries, although I usually play without companions.

the one with Vault 13 suit and Vault 13 water bottle.

in hardmode you need to check the Food, Sleep and Dehydration levels of char with Classic pack, you don't have to worry about pure water.

cheating, I'd say
