Re: Fallout New Vegas - The Legion are kicking my ass

You guys made me download this, thanks for the the texture packs, they changed the game a lot for good.

Enjoy it, mang! I played it on 360, so I had to stick with long load times and the low-res graphics.

Even then, I highly enjoyed the game, especially the expansions (except for Dead Money... f*ck that expansion and whomever worked on it!).

Dead Money looks like the most interesting of the expansions. Whats wrong with it?

Many spoilers ahead... you are warned...

The main issues that I had with it were the artificial restraints that were placed on your character constantly throughout the expansion.

Areas that had extremely lethal "gas" that you had to go through (unlike in the regular game where lethal radiation areas were usually sidequests) .
Stripped of your gear as soon as you start .
The bomb collar areas that made you have to look for really small, blinking "noise" boxes that were trial and error to find, as there were a few in concealed areas and the noises did not get louder when you got close to indicate that you were going in the correct direction .
Ghost enemies that took close to half the expansion to find a weapon to "dispatch" them permanently, forcing you to stealth (though, not a problem for my character, would be for some builds) .

VATS with a powerful gun in the arm or leg can be very funny to watch sometimes if you can take the chance! Especially if they are charging you.

That's good advice Goggalor, thanks! I played for like 4 and a half hours last night, which is a lot for me during the week. Had a hard time putting it down. I'm not having much trouble fighting yet but. I'm still up against the Powder Gangers. My strategy so far has been to get as close as possible and VATS them in the head.

You're welcome. I bought the game when it originally released, but when I got to about 35 hours or so played, the game would crash after 10 minutes or playing or so. Upon searching ze Googles, it was reported that there was a serious issue with the game at around the same game played time for most people playing on the 360.

Fast forward to last year and seeing the GotY edition with all the expansions for a cheap price, I sat down and picked up where I had left off (Bethesda had finally fixed the save issue). I believe my total time played for my character was in the neighborhood of 108 hours or so... so yeah, I put in some play time with it.

What made the Legion so hard at the beginning was the fact they are heavily armored. I tore the Powder Gangers a new ass. The Legion is still tough, but not as tough as they were before I got Boone and ED-E. They are also easier as you get up in level. My Guns are at 95, and with the sniper perk, now and I can snipe the crap out of those guys with my trusty Cowboy Repeater very easily.

I put 80+ hours in on Fallout 3 and I didn't complete every expansion. Makes me want to go back and replay it again. I just don't have the time.

That's about how much time I put into Fallout 3 on the PS3. I didn't buy NV initially because of all the reports of how buggy the game was and I wasn't crazy about the landscape in the first game. I got NV for 5 or 10 bucks on Steam last year sometime, definitely worth it so far.

I agree. I got it for $20 on a Steam sale with all the DLC. That was before the GOTY edition hit. I know there are some Fallout 3 purists that say that New Vegas was not as good, but I think New Vegas is very good. The story and side missions are fun as hell. I am going to be playing this for a while I have a feeling.
