    how more off topic could you get.

    so i only need 4 more trophies to platinum. ninja,hack the mov, eureka, and for the republic. the only one i am really worried about it the hacking one. i don't know where i can even find 25 terminals :/

    so my tags are survival, science, i don't even remember maybe repair or speech. my st 7 per 7 end 6 char 5 int 9 agi7 luck7 i am on lvl 14 and have put no points into any weapons skills they are all around 20. anyway that's my char basically.

    so here is the part where i beg for help. everything i have killed thus far has been with a katana or machete. haven't gotten ninja yet, and i really think i should have pinged that trof by now. i mean they are melee weapons. secondly if anyone knows off the top of there heads where i can find some unsuspecting terminals to hack please let me know happy

    and this would be the thread to talk about fun you have had in fallout, give tips etc. winking

    My only experience with the Fallout series of games was back in '08/'09 when my roommate bought Fallout 3.

    I had a blast, the perks, the followers (this one giant yellow troll dude with a mini-gun was my favorite), the different dialogue choices (I don't know but despite Skyrim being the newer Bethesda game Fallout seemed to have more variety), and the world was just a ton of fun to explore.

    My only complaints were the V.A.T.S. targeting system and the lack of, to me, replay value.

    I still haven't even completed New Vegas. I'm stuck at the slideshow of the battle of Hoover Dam. The framerate drops to like 1. It's horrible. Makes the battle unplayable.

    First of all, get rid of your luck. Melee weapons will almost never crit, unarmed is what crits. So, with Melee weapons you'll just want to get rid of that luck and go straight up strength, and get heavy handed. If you are looking for build advice that is. Luck is useful mainly for Gun, and Unarmed players. I think you must already know that charisma is useless, so if you are making a new character get rid of that. For melee characters the most important stats are End, Str, and Int. Anything else is just a bonus, like Agility. Luck, Perception, Charisma, no use to you at all.

    Ill have a look in the Vault now for some terminal heavy zones

    On a totally unrelated note

    I looked at your build and personally im in the low INT value camp. You dont need to master too many skills per playthrough and give you have about 40+ levels to build with you really shouldnt need more the 13-15 skill points per level..... given you can earn about 15-18 points just by reading skill books.

    So my normal build is something like 5 Str 6Per 7-8 End Charisma 3 Int6 Agl6 L6

    This way you can get between 3-4 implants, weapon handling up to STR 8 which is good enough for me (seeing as im a Small guns man), have all the critical boosting perks I need, all the CQC and SMG perks I need.

    With TAGS of Sneak, Melee Weapons, and Survival you can do some really nasty stealth killing early on while developing your small guns for late game. And for you door opening and weapons skill just sub in Science and energy weapons skills.

    As for terminals you can find heaps in the Big Mountain DLC and in any industrial areas of New Vegas.

    Viral never make your charisma over 1! It's the most useless SPECIAL in the game, with Int you will easily get however much barter or speech you could want.

    Yes yes they do.... especially when equipped with a Bowie Knife, a 50mm Submachine gun, and a solid load of .45 slugs out of the Light in the Dark

    No, because it is an unarmed toon that uses Crits. They would want some sort of powerfist.

    You won't kill them in one hit with a melee weapon, you have to genuinely fight them. If you strafe well you won't ever even be hit by a Deathclaw. You'll need 9 strength, as well you'll probably want 9 endurance, agility couldn't hurt either. Basically, Melee, you need to be a tank. Unarmed, you are better as an assassin.

    Super Sledge, take it to the Deathclaws with one of those. Just remember, if you choose style over being practical, you aren't thinking like a wastelander. silly

    I was there when the original vault dweller crawled out of his vault, I was there when the chosen one first put on the vault suit and pip boy and went in search of the enclave, I was there when the Mid Western Brother hood went into St Louis, and saw the Super Mutants in the Capitol Building, and I was there when the NCR kicked the Legions *** at the Dam.

    Dont say im no true wastelander.

    And lets be honest Melee weapons were always better than Unarmed weapons:lol!: .....

    Go into it with a set capacity of bullets and supplies. Its more survivalistic that way an one of the best Fallout experiences ever.

    Gimme your weapons an Ill throw down a limit on what you can and cant take.

    Limit 3 weapons

    One set of clothing armour

    and one set of combat/ heavy armour

    15 dirty waters

    2 caravan lunches

    4 brahmin steaks

    3 gecko steaks

    3 rad x

    4 radaway

    3 of any 2 drugs

    antio poison gear.

    then pick up what you find from there.

    Scavenger on the lonesome road.

    For armours i reccommend something ragged and with poor defence that forces you to upgrade while in the divide.
