Who... am I? I... feel different, awake, alive for the first time ever. What... I feel like this has happened before. Yet I feel awake for the first time? What is going on? What is this strange new world around me? What does it hold in store for a dreamer such as myself? Noooooooooo... X-8 robobrain

The X-8 splicing facility terminal allows the Courier to create 4 different creatures by splicing them, each one completes a challenge rewarding the player's character variable XP; they are challenges in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

WalkthroughEdit

Three holotapes are required in order to 'learn' all the splicing experiments.

All three can be found in the X-8 research center, however the player character needs the key to the kennel to obtain the final holotape.

Splicing rulesEdit

There are a few "rules" for splicing:

  • Only three experiment creatures can be made per day.
  • You can do only one dog and robot splicing experiment (Roxie) at a time.
  • You need to clear the area before starting new experiments.
  • Experiments are not allowed outside of the X-8 facility.
  • Security must be disabled before experiments can be run.

Splicing resultsEdit

The X-8 slicing terminal displays the results of what the Courier spliced:

  • Splice dog and lobotomite - results in a "dismal failure", leaving behind the severely mutilated bodies of a dog and a lobotomite. The lobotomite can be looted for a weapon and minor loot.
  • Splice dog and robot - creates a friendly, temporary companion, Roxie.
  • Splice robot and unusual specimen - creates a robobrain that is friendly but starts shooting randomly before exploding. (Completes the Automaton challenge rewarding variable XP).
  • Lobotomite and robot - creates a friendly robobrain which excitedly muses about the exciting new world it's presented with and what opportunities it offers to "a dreamer like itself"... before exploding.

Behind the scenesEdit

The exploding robobrains' few words are a reference to the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy where a whale is spontaneously spawned into life.
