  1. just for the record, i've given you 2+'s marney... one here, and one for the irish protagonist ... anyone that doesn't at least consider devlin, shouldn't be playing video games... *waits for +'s* the last playstation topic turned into a discussion about the network anyways... and the xbox one might actually get some activity if it was a discussion about network games and changes to the network, like the playstation topic, instead of a topic that looks like a place to spam your network ID...
  2. can i make a suggestion?? we all have our ID's underneath our avatars... if you wanted to add someone, you would do it that way... how about we name these topics, "xbox live" and "playstation network" threads?? just a thought...
  3. wow, they managed to make him look old and fat!!

    ...and rockstar games now to an extent... if they continue the support they showed with RDR then, i'd put them in that category... i fully expect new cases and costumes for LA noire all summer ... but yea, i am excited about playing new DLC in april... dead money grew on me and i fucking loved it looking back... and i fully expect the same experience for honest hearts too... but i hope for more story and maybe even an appearance of the infamous "other" courier... however, i am sure this DLC will focus around the burning man though...

    http://www.justpushstart.com/2011/03/27/fallout-new-vegas-honest-hearts-dlc-dated/ it's about damn time... hopefully this week we get a trailer or screens... and hopefully a general synopsis of the plot...
  6. hmm... some favorites include niko belic (GTAIV), tommy vercetti (GTA vice city), sean devlin (the saboteur), link (legend of zelda), nathan drake (uncharted), kratos (god of war), solid snake (metal gear solid), john marston (red dead redemption), and ezio auditoire (assassin's creed)... but my favorite would have to be conker, from conker's bad fur day...
  7. i saw sucker punch night... and i liked it!! visually it's stunning and come on, it's 4 hot chicks kicking some ass... what guy wouldn't want to see it?? just be prepared for a very very dark story...

    just one?! that took 10 minutes to type!! ... yea, spiked knuckles are unarmed... really, 50 in both melee and unarmed make all weapons of that nature effective... that'll be something else to strive for as you get higher in the leveling... but putting stock into a weapon and CQC is important, same with either lockpick or science, while improving the other one to at least 55 too... but i am sure you remember how important those were in fallout 3 ... the comprehension skill is extremely useful too for skill books and magazines...

    @dupzor - well the love and hate is only 5 damage points better than the regular spiked knuckles but, i still think it's worth getting... also, if your an unarmed kind of player, keep your eye out for the ballistic fist... it packs a shotgun-like punch that usually knocks enemies back, plus it can deal about 100 in damage if your unarmed skill is stellar... that is actually my favorite weapon in all of new vegas ... there's also pushy, a unique power fist located in a cave on the march up to jacobstown... be careful though, one of those caves up there is by far one of the toughest to get through... i call it cazador hell... there's also a zap glove which works like a pulse grenade and sends an EMP shock when used... perfect for robots and power armor... for energy weapons, if you haven't taken the wild wasteland perk, there's a unique gauss rifle way up north in an unmarked location... it's called the YCS/186 and it is a very deadly sniper rifle, usually dealing around 140 in damage if your good in that skill... it's NE of brooks tumbleweed ranch, north of north vegas... keep collecting the sunset sarsaparilla star bottle caps because collecting 50 of them yields an awesome unique laser pistol that deals over 100 in damage too... i won't spoil the location of that one though but, by the time you find 50 star caps, i am sure you've found the location as well... for melee the unique fire axe in camp searchlight is another great weapon to have (science skill of 50 required)... as well as the infamous chainsaw... you'll run across the unique super sledgehammer if you do the quest in jacobstown, which is probably the most powerful melee weapon outside the chainsaw... the chainsaw is wielded by some legion members once you get to around level 16 and above... and found rarely in stores after level 16 too... so is the always cool weapon, the shishkebab... hell, even the simple lead pipe is a useful melee weapon...

    there's no decent weapon to make... however, weapon repair kits are your friend so make sure you collect scrap metal, scrap electronics, duct tape, wonderglue, and wrenches... if you don't have the jury rigging perk (repair level of 90), you may find it hard to repair a lot of your unique and rare weapons... and speaking of weapons, it all depends on your character build... are you guns/energy weapons/melee/unarmed?? the best all-around weapon in the game is definitely the "love and hate" spiked knuckles... http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Love_and_Hate it weighs one pound, deals 30 in damage for low skilled unarmed players, and it can be concealed when entering casinos with a sneak skill of 50 or more... i think it's the single greatest weapon in the game due to its versatility and damage for unskilled unarmed players... be careful though, trying to get it can prove to be tough for low level players as there are really tough raiders over there... don't forget to not only put points into either guns or energy weapons, but into either melee or unarmed as CQC is extremely effective in new vegas...
  11. know what i mean, verne?!

  12. well i tell you what, if this site ever gives me more than oral pleasure, it would be from forming a gaming company with the peeps from here... and you'd be amongst the lead writers, massacre... and dammit, dup is my only 1% connection to the industry... but i predict big things for him so i'd like to still be in his thoughts if he ever has this situation where he needed a graphic artist... kind of like you would hope he needed a writer all of a sudden...
  13. @marney's site - it's getting there... psy, and i am assuming dup, have a nice visual pedigree with the iseries though.... someone hire me and give me some incentive and i'll throw my name in the hat too ... same goes for you too dup... lemme know if you ever need help with putting together books and posters for your eventual gaming company ... i am about to design a band poster and a beer label in the next month... i am always looking for something more in the gaming industry though... i will probably always have a local band to work with but my passion is obviously in gaming...
  14. *is disappointed too* damn, what does it take to meet a real girl?!
  15. Like you could beat me up. lol Ok, i'll wait till you're drunk and unconscious on the floor and just take it. ...fuck dammit, now he knows... that was my only option and now he's onto us ...

    i honestly don't have a problem with my inventory... no matter what i do or what i am looking for, 2 seconds into my thought process i know where i need to be... it's either in my pip-boy, or i need to head home to grab the right object, or i still need to visit a locale... that damn pimpboy 3 billion tells me everything i need to know, when i need to know it ... i do think though if there was something to revamp in the pipboy it is the notes section of the quests... sometimes i head to that section and i am 12 notes behind... when i read the notes, i sense that my pipboy is ridiculously behind my actual status in the game... maybe it needs to feel more important, or it needs to at least give me a hotkey immediately so i feel in touch with the property, before it gets lost in my dozens of unread notes... know what i mean, verne?? FYI, i just saved that image... you will see it again someday ...

    @synch - been there, done that with concern of the locations you mentioned... somehow i failed the crandon mission a loooooooong time ago so i never got the chance to play it... i think i wandered into some old ladies house and killed her before the mission started... can't remember how it happened but it's one of the few missions this character failed outside of legion missions... i got to level 35 anyways... i hit up the area around the fisherman's shack and discovered the scavenger's platform to officially reach the end of leveling... i sniped the lakelurks from the shoreline ... then i marched up the mountain to guardian peak but, reached the top and decided to stop before entering the cave... this'll be the next place i explore whenever i fire up the game again...
  18. i spot a possible mission on page 3... http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showpost.php?p=4317524&postcount=46 also, the following photo claims to be from the 40's but, i didn't think the us highway system went into effect until the 50's... perhaps the person who posted the photo didn't get the facts right... i like this photo for some reason...

    yup, memory was partially correct... no vipers but, there was one blind deathclaw right in the middle of primm pass, which could be handled early if prepared right... dead wind cavern sat to the south of the shack just passed the pass, and down the mountain to the W/NW was ranger station charlie... i'm a little upset about that because i thought for sure that would be a way to cut across... turns out obsidian created a much more linear path to reach new vegas than i had originally thought... what a shame... i did manage to reach new vegas with delilah by hugging the mountainside heading north from neil's shack... i was constantly spotted by deathclaws but they could never reach me way up on top of the mountain... somehow i managed to get by that time but other than that, the game really does force you to navigate the southern part... maybe they want you to see nipton, the outpost, camp searchlight and cottonwood cove... i think they're trying to tell you the story between the NCR and the legion on your way to vegas... ohh well... went through the deathclaw sanctuary across the river as well... jesus christ if i was a little less sneaky there would of been a whole bunch of hell over there... thank god for the silenced sniper rifle with armor piercing rounds... none of them ever took more than 2 shots, some did but i killed them before they became hostile... i dropped both mother's with two shots... yea, two mothers were here... but i lucked out and never had any of the deathclaws see me or chase me... they heard me quite a few times, but never saw me... it took about 30 minutes of inching my way through there and staying hidden on top of the rocks but i finally did it... going to go check out that cave right as soon as i post this... now i am about 500XP from reaching the level 35 plateau... any other location suggestions for me before i reach the the level cap? ... because, there's no more exploring after that point with this file until they raise the level cap again... EDIT: that was actually the most detailed cave in the game i think... full of plant life, glowing mushrooms and fish... the only problem i had with it is, how in the hell did they manage to get a car down there?! i can "sort of" understand the briefcases, poker chips and skeletons... perhaps a botched robbery and a bad place to hide the stash... but how in the hell did those car parts make it down there?!?
  20. i did that as well with san andreas, on a smaller scale of course... i have a save right before the casino heist, before the pot burning mission, and one right before the catalina missions since i really enjoyed her missions... with GTAIV, i have a save right before the bank robbery, and one saved before the big decision at the end... i do that too but, only for a few select missions... dammit, now i want to play san andreas too!! ...

    i miss the railway rifle too ... if i don't get bothered tonight by my friends (i sure sound like a good friend don't i, lol) i'll take it upon myself to do some exploring tonight... the problem is my game is starting to do that freeze thing again, only it seems to be more frequent than it ever was... any time i enter a place with a bunch of people and/or scripts running (north new vegas, camp searchlight, freeside), it slows the game down and eventually locks up... i hope there is a patch coming soon... i thought obsidian said there was one coming last month... it wasn't like this until i got back from the sierra madre on each file... but, if all goes well, i'll hit up deathclaw sanctuary tonight... and hopefully the game doesn't freeze after killing a few like it was doing in camp searchlight... but first things first, i haven't been to primm's pass yet... i want to see what kind of shortcut it is so i can make a judgement call on the next file i start up... do i head to the outpost or push on through to the east? ...
  22. sorry ... it happens... i had captain crunch on the mind i guess... @marney - thanks, i'll check out that link sometime...

    not only does she have the black widow perk but, she also has the cherchez la femme perk too ... she's totally bi... although, those options hardly ever popped up... the black widow on the other hand definitely had it's uses ... and yes, you do learn a lot from your first file, which explains why she is so badass... i have only crafted maybe 2 weapons total... there's just not enough cool options like there was in fallout 3... and holy crap, i only have one save for each character... i also have a dummy save for those times when i am not ready to save over my original file just yet, but i do want to save the game... i used that dummy file for dead money so i didn't have to save over the original file until i got back from the sierra madre... i never saw the need to go back to a save from 2 hours before... if i missed something or messed something up, i just lived with the consequences... i didn't want to load my harddrive up with a million different fallout saves... i know a lot of people do that but, i don't want to...
  24. yea, there's about 2 months to go... i'll just stick to the videos R* releases until then... no need to watch a mission spoiler... on another note though, those old-school photos and articles are pretty sweet... and since we're chasing a cereal killer in LA noire, my friend let me borrow her "A to Z cereal killers" book ... i flipped through it last night and lets just say i have already been grossed out in the 5 minutes i spent flipping through... but i'll read up on some of the killers of that era like the black dahlia... i am starting to get into the mode of being a detective too... it's the same transformation i went through last year for RDR... i was watching a bunch of western movies and reading up on the history of the wild west... for LA noire, i think i'll watch a few noir films but, i'll also try to catch some episodes of the rockford files and columbo... those are some good old school PI shows ... i can't stand CSI so, i'll pass on those detective shows... plus, CSI is too new-school for LA noire research...
