    JUST ORDERED XBOX

    January 8, 2011 by Fallout Junkie

    Today I ordered the Xbox 360 Limited Edition Halo Reach Bundle. Online research indicates that PS3 (which I already have) has better textures, and the Xbox has better AA.

    As a graphics designer (and Raster Master), I hate jaggies. I'm hoping there will be noticeable difference between the two.

    I scored a used (like new condition) Xbox 360 Limited Edition Halo Reach Bundle for a little over the cost of the 250 GB console. This means I got the Halo Reach game, and an extra controller for free (not sure how much value the LE version has).

    Possibly a sweet deal.

    Also ordered the Xbox version of FNV (unregistered with the Mercenary Pack) for less than $40.

    Possibly another sweet deal.

    Time will tell.

    This is a guide for new Fallout New Vegas players who want to maximize their characters effectiveness right from the start of the game. Hopefully it also helps older players try new and perhaps more effective things. Here you will learn what stats will most effect your desired playstyle, and what you could do without. Your SPECIAL stats all start at 5, with 5 points to add to any stats. You may also add/deduct points from any stat when creating your character VIA the Vigor Tester (The machine you edit your SPECIAL stats with at the beginning of the game).

    SPECIAL stats are:

    Strength (Governing stats: Melee Weapons. Also determines which weapons you can effectively use, inventory carry weight, and melee combat damage.)

    Perception (Governing st…

    Deathclaw promontory, for me, was probably one of the most enjoyable areas of the game.

    If you like using the Sniper rifle, you just might agree.

    I killed 19 Deathclaws, including one Alpha, two Mothers, and 4 Young Deathclaws. My reward was 8 Deathclaw Eggs, and 11 Deathclaw Hands (about half of the Deathclaws were empty), plus some nice Loot from two Dead prospectors.

    Not bad for the cost of a few dozen .308 AP Rounds.

    In my opinion, when it comes to killing Deathclaws, Armor is not important. I can kill Deathclaws wearing Sexy sleepwear (Fallout: New Vegas) and nothing else. It just requires using the correct strategy.

    My strategy for killing Deathclaws:

    • Killing them from a distance is extremely important. Trust me, you don't want to let the…

    NOTES ON STRATEGY

    November 12, 2010 by Fallout Junkie
    • By not killing Benny when I found him at the Fort, I lost the Virgin Mary Pistol.
    • It is always a good idea that whenever you fast travel to a new location to first look around to make sure your companions are with you. Otherwise, you my end up retracing your steps (or reloading) to get them back.
    • While playing, always use a timer set to go off every hour. Save your game when it goes off. That way, should you need to restart the game, you will only lose an hour of game-play.
    • Next playthrough, try for a Survival skills level of 30.
    • Give all Dynamite to Cass.
