Re: Fallout: New Vegas

OK, it got worse. Now the Strip entrance is locked and the only way I can enter the Strip is by warping to Fort McClaren, walking ALLLLL the way to the building, loading screen, walk ALLLL the way up the stairs to the far corner, loading screen, get on the monorail, loading screen, and then I'm there. Why

Re: Fallout: New Vegas

I finished the game. I was playing on the NCR side, but I also installed Yes Man as the new head of Vegas. I was very disappointed that the Vegas/House/Yes Man story ended up having nothing to do with the finale at Hoover Dam. I assumed that the finale would be on the Strip since it's this huge location you take forever to get into with all those loading screens. But there was never any action there. It's like there were two completely separate main missions that never touched each other. I was hoping Yes Man's Securitrons would show up to help at Hoover Dam.

Re: Fallout: New Vegas

Don't all the stories end up at the Dam?

Also, there's a glitch that locks the doors to Vegas for some reason. You can kill one of the securitrons and steal the gate key though.

And they announced the first DLC pack today - comes out December 21st... just in time for the holidays?

Re: Fallout: New Vegas

Yeah, solving the monorail sabotage mission appeared to have locked the Strip entrance. BUT I went back later and it worked again.

But the worst bug I had? I had two companions, and at some point, I dunno when, they disappeared. Got stuck on an object or something I guess. So I was without my backup for many many hours. And when I tried to recruit a new companion they said you already have a companion.

Then, when I initiated the final mission, my companions finally respawned with me! I was so delighted! Naturally they got stuck on a flight of stairs five minutes later and never moved again and I had to finish the game without them.

there is also a glitch that turns companions permanantly into the "passive mode, they won't move or fight

Re: Fallout: New Vegas

^So far and especially after reading all of these posts, I'm not regretting my decision to wait for the bargain bin edition.
Actually, given that Bethesda don't have a very good history of comprehensive patching, I may not even bother at all. I have to say I was a bit taken aback when I bought the GotY copy of Oblivion earlier this year to find some pretty obvious glitches had appararantly been left un-addressed since the original release.

Re: Fallout: New Vegas

The thing is that the game is good, but like all single player games - if you don't have a need to play it now, you might as well just wait.

I think the extent of the bugginess has been overstated.

I've finished it with all four factions (2 characters, plus reverting to earlier saves), and the bugs have never stopped me cold. I once lost a companion and had to revert to a save that was an hour or two old. Really, just keep leapfrogging your saves every couple hours and you should be good.

Yeah I didn't notice too many bugs either aside from losing my companions for many hours towards the end. Aside from that the only thing that happened was getting stuck in the terrain a few times.

Yeah, I saw that yesterday when it was linked to on the Fallout twitter feed. Funny video.

They used some kind of dance mod for the PC version. The name of it is in the credits at the end of the vid.

LOL, that made my night, thanks!

Personally, I finished without any major hiccups, I think I froze twice in 75 hours of game play.

Loved the story. I thought it was a clear upgrade over FO3, without the shitty ending that demanded you buy a DLC to get the taste out of your mouth.

Going to go back to resolve some of the companion quests that I didn't get to the first time.

Looking forward to some DLC's, but so far they are only releasing them on XBOX, which is diappointing.
