    You'll want to disable auto saves and avoid quick saves anyway, because both of them will typically make your game unstable as hell. Oblivion and Fallout 3 were the same way.

    Morrowind was also stupid with them, as they didn't save any scripts running, which fubared a ton of stuff.

    this is a Steam problem. i think i´ve read somewhere that turning off Steamcloud globally should resolve the issue, but i wouldn´t bet on it.
    just save manually to be safe.

    I can confirm that this is the case.
    While running the pirated version I had no problems with autosave/quicksave whatsoever.
    Once again buyers are punished while pirates gets the better version.
    :thumbsup:

    Also, neat LP.
    You suffer for the greater good, bro.

    Has anyone considered....

    I dunno... just considered that the Courier image on the cover of F:NV is based on the description of Tycho in Fallout 1?

    Long trenchcoat, gas-mask, etc? OH my... No. It must be Obsidian taking a leaf from Killzone... not the description of the rangers inspired by Wasteland.

    Fucking faggots.

    I reiterate: fuck you!

    Cool, will follow. You could do without the excessive FUUUUUUUU-, though. Just tone it down a little, cause nothing yet has been truly FUUU-worthy,

    EDIT: Oh, and that Easy Pete oldtimer looks pretty good for a character done in the Oblivious engine. Detailed face, doesn't look too unnatural. That woman, on the other hand, the one with the rifle: wow. Talk about Miss. Bland.

    Part 3: Man on the run

    Fallout: New Vegas

    Part 3: Man on the run

    Alright, now that we are out of the tutorial area (for now) let's go find those assholes that shot me! I heard they were heading for Primm, so I head south.

    [​IMG]

    New Vegas introduces survival elements into the game. Since I have not had a drink of water lately, I get dehydrated. Since I am still getting my bearings, I waste one of my bottles of purified water quenching my thirst. There is no need to do that, and I will tell you why later.

    [​IMG]


    This is my first human kill. More will follow.

    [​IMG]


    This looks like an NCR outpost. This has been a pretty uneventful journey.

    [​IMG]

    Of course nothing is ever that easy. It looks like the so-called Powder Gangers have taken over the town of Primm.

    [​IMG]

    I do that. Of course he just tells me the same shit this guy did.

    [​IMG]

    Here is me getting stuck on the scenery.

    I reload and head back to Goodsprings.

    [​IMG]

    I kill some more geckos along the way.

    [​IMG]

    Fuck! Since I don't want to fool with repairs right now, I just switch to
    the 9mm pistol I 'borrowed' from some raiders.

    [​IMG]

    Fuck yeah! I bump Science to 25 and put spare points in Repair and Guns.

    [​IMG]

    I figure this is the most Codexian perk.

    [​IMG]

    This is about the time I noticed that Quicksaves and Autosaves don't actually work.

    [​IMG]

    I head to the Goodsprings Source to quench my thirst. I then noticed that drinking this radiation-free water not only quenched my thirst but also restored my HP. This makes Hardcore mode a lot easier.

    [​IMG]

    It looks like this cowboy robot is more than he lets on.

    [​IMG]

    A quest!

    [​IMG]

    A kewl shot!

    [​IMG]

    A trick!

    [​IMG]

    Next time, make sure all the geckos are dead before you doublecross me.

    After the gecko finishes his snack, he comes right for me.

    [​IMG]

    Things look tense. Will I make it?

    [​IMG]

    Of course!

    [​IMG]

    This is the stash Mr. Doublecrosser was talking about.

    [​IMG]

    I avoid the traps and loot the place.

    [​IMG]

    I have no idea what to do with a camera, but I take it anyway.

    [​IMG]

    Shit! I think I know what my new weapon will be. BTW, I currently regret tagging Energy Weapons instead of Guns. Since I want more money, I ask Ms. Tutorial where I can find some more.

    [​IMG]

    She tells me about an unopened safe in the old schoolhouse. While I am there, I ask Trudy where the fucking bastards who shot me went.

    [​IMG]

    I assume she means New Vegas. I then head for the schoolhouse.

    [​IMG]

    Since I just got 25 in Science, I open the safe electronically.

    [​IMG]

    After doing the shitty password-guessing minigame from Fallout 3, I unlock the safe.

    [​IMG]

    Inside I find two Stealth Boys and a few other goodies. I then head for the gas station to talk to the man in hiding.

    [​IMG]

    He acts as another tutorial.

    [​IMG]

    This is Caravan, the shitty card game Obsidian created for New Vegas. I have not read the rules, so I have no idea what the fuck is going on. Anyway, I offer to help Ringo, and he asks me to find more people willing to take on the bandits.

    [​IMG]

    Sunny is in.

    [​IMG]

    Trudy is in if I have either a Speech or Sneak score of 25. That is real suave dialogue BTW. There 's no way in hell she'll be moved by that!

    [​IMG]

    :rage:

    [​IMG]

    I read Salesman's Weekly and become entrepreneurial enough to convince Chet of the pecuniary advantages not being slaughtered by bandits represents. Colonel Tigh lends some stimpacks to the cause. Unfortunately, I am not enough of a pyromaniac to convince Easy Pete to lend me some DY-NO-MITE!

    [​IMG]

    I head back to the gas station and tell Ringo everything is ready. Then, the shit hits the fan.


    [​IMG]

    I take out the leader and one other myself. The townsfolk deal with the other four.

    [​IMG]

    I'm rolling! I'm rolling! I'm rolling my bottle caps.

    [​IMG]

    Will do!

    [​IMG]

    Reputation FTW!

    Next time, I will begin tracking down the sonsa bitches who shot me.

    Wait, is it just your screen shots, or does the game seriously forget what the front half of the iron sights are for (unless that changes when your character has some minimum in guns skill, which would be pretty cool and Gothic esque)?

    At least an improvement over shitty 3 so far. Some dialogue was pretty ergh, but at least nothing has set off any blatant red HURR flags, like 3 already had multiple times by this point.

    I know I'm beating a dead horse, but the graphics are beyond shitty. How the hell does a NEXTGENDERP game manage to look like operation flashpoint? Imma gonna go play my popamole Just Cause 2 so I can wash this shit out of my eyes.

    I understand that it's a console game but the devs shouldn't treat players as complete morons, offering lame exposition. Surely, 99% of gamers would realise they've been tricked if the guy started shooting at you after geckos had been killed.

    Yeah, it looks like it depends on skill. Watch this after 2:20 for a reference.
