Wonder of wonders, me, Mr. "Down with government" in real life... have somehow found myself allied with the NCR. I did this purely because that
Aurelias fellow essentially dared me to empty a cylinder of .357 hollow points into his little dog head covered skull.
Love the game. I've got about 15 hours playing time on my latest save, but that doesn't correspond to any sort of completion percentage in open
world games for me, because I almost always spend a lot more time exploring and just killing things and eventually finsih quests and storylines in
between. I freaking *hate* those tarantula hawk wasp things. I have been killed by them more than pretty much any creature in FO3 aside from Death
Claws and the occassional Yao-gi. Also, it took me forever to change my playing style away from my completely maxed out, 100% camo ninja suited, 135%
sneak character in FO3. I was taking mantis damage in the school house and was honestly confused as to what was even happening, it had been so long
since I took hits in Fallout.
Glitches: I have the 360 version and am playing on a 360 Elite. My launch system suffered it's 3rd RROD last winter, so I decided then to just go
ahead and upgrade instead of going through another M$ send away fiasco. I am glad of this because I have heard that neither this game nor Reach will
even play on launch systems, despite M$ saying that is a lie. That said, I am having a few issues I hope get patched soon. First and foremost is the
really annoying morphing/diappearing two handed weapon glitch. A very close second is the random enemy falling through the ground and burying into
the rocks glitch. I'm a bit pissed that Bethesda was almost instantaneous on releasing a patch to eliminate discovered exploits like the infinite
speech EXP glitch and the Vicky & Vance infinite poker chip for bottle caps glitch, issues that ONLY affect the individuals who decide to exploit them
rather than being a pain every player's rear, rather than fixing the actual glitches that affect everyone's enjoyment regardless of any personal
decisions the player makes. That's bush league, IMO. "Somebody isn't playing a single player game the way you, the designer, intended it..."
WHOOPITY DAMN DOO! It's not like people who modded deathmatches in Borderlands or abused the hot potato flag glitch in Halo 3.
