    I guess you don't like power armor. Plus the brotherhood can help you later.

    Head scribe McNamara Taggart. [EDIT: Stupid me getting the names mixed up from the Wiki...]

    And yeah, due to the way New Vegas does armor (Damage Threshold instead of Reduction), it's kinda not worth very much. Looks cool, but takes up WAY too much inventory space.

    Wait I thought Mcnamara was the elder...

    Fuck...

    Well as far as armor goes I usually wear leather armor (reinforced) doesnt weigh that much and still has a decent DT to it.

    McNamara is the elder, I fucked up. You want the Scribe, he's one of the red robed people in the room full of computers, I think. Computer room's kind of easy to miss, though.

    WOO DESTROYED THE BROTHERHOOD!

    Funny thing though, I probably killed every single person in the base but in the end I was still labled "good" and a "saint"

    Yay! Serves them right for having such a pain-in-the-ass base to navigate! And yeah, only a few of the Brotherhood members are marked as "good people" such that you lose karma for killing them, and the good karma you have for nearly everything else in the game balances out.

    Veronica hates you now, though. Just a heads up.

    I never even met veronica. She was probably in the base.

    I also saved the NCR president and Mr.House was proud of me.

    Now before I do the shit at the sub station I decided to explore a bit.

    Killed some powder gangers and came across a super mutant named neils, the conversation basically went like this:

    "Leave before the crazy ass bitch and her gang kills you"

    "Want me to help you kill her?"

    "Sure if you can get past all the super mutant masters"

    "Wait what?"

    *runs off*

    "Fuck"

    So now Im doing that

    Not gonna lie I looped in a circle several times trying to find the trader in the brotherhood bunker.

    My all-time favourite Fallout companion would be Sulik from F2, hands down.

    First thing, there's his overall design (post-apo tribal with an amusing way of speaking and a unique relationship with the grandfather's bone in his nose). Second - his spiritual forecasts (whether we consider it legit or just an effect of heavy herb use), which meant he always had 3 interesting if cryptic messages to say about each major location.

    "I wonder what will the spirits say when we get to X"
    was a thing that kept the companion fresh till the very end for me.

    How much drugs do I need to do in 3/NV to get addicted? It honestly seems like that mechanic is non-existent. When I was playing through NV I went to town on RadX and Rad Away and nothing ever happened.

    I'm pretty sure those two drugs don't count?
    'Cause they're like Stimpaks, they're essential.

    Well, the idea is that Jet, Rebound, etc. is like meth or cocaine, where as something like RadAway is like over the counter cough syrup.

    Were they always non-addictive? Or was that changed in 3?

    Fallout is a subliminal advertisement to use THE MAN'S drugs instead street drugs.

    I don't believe you could ever be addicted to Stimpacks or RadAway, but it's been a while since I played Fallout 2 so I'm not quite sure.

    The DLC's are great. I definitely enjoyed them more than FO3's DLC's if that means anything. The only DLC I heard some bad stuff about (and I gotta agree) is Dead Money. Pain to play through.

    If you're talking about FO3, point lookout is a GREAT DLC. If its FNV, I heard that old world blues is really nice. I got it in my library but didn't get the chance to play it yet.

    FO3's the Pitt was amazing. The imagery and atmosphere were really, really nice.
    Show Spoiler
    I particularly liked using the whole "You're a disarmed slave" thing to sneakily gather materials and kill the slavers one by one. It helped I was playing an evil melee character at the time.


    FNV's Honest Hearts was really pretty, Lonesome Road was pretty and enjoyably deadly, and Old World Blues was just lots and lots of fun.

    Zeta was okay. I vaguely remember Lookout, specifically the hillbillies being surprisingly hard to kill and then pleasantly surprised I could sneak up on them and shove live grenades in their pants.

    I, um, mostly play New Vegas anyway. The Pitt was just that memorable that I make the exception for it.

    I offically stopped playing FO3 when I going through the pointlook quests again on my second playthrough (after I completed the main quest line) I exit the bank and the game hard crashd on me and I havent saved since the tribal mansion where you first meet the red headed girl.

    ...

    Man fuck bethesda's "we rufuse to do QA testing because we can patch it later," way of thinking.
