How did you run into the legion?

Spoiler:
Did you take a detour from Goodsprings to Primm?

Yeah,
Spoiler:
There was this town that the Legion "cleansed". I "cleansed" them. I wouldn't think that would be an issue right? Since NCR and Legion hate each other?

Yeah, I checked my regular box with a friends regular box that had the Gamestop card inside, and it was the same.

Of course I wasn't home when they tried to deliver the CE, d'oh! Off to FedEx tonight I guess, or I can just wait til tomorrow.

I went to the NCR prison that was full of Powder Gangers. I cleared out all the guys in the towers and around the perimeter, and then make the mistake of entering the compound. I get immediately swarmed by a dozen convicts that chase me halfway to Primm, shooting me the whole time, before a well placed grenade blows my legs off

Like I said before. I talked to the NCR guy and then later shot a car and he starts shooting me.

Yeah, they were attacking me, too.

To my knowledge the first NCR guys I've come across are the ones attacking me, unprovoked. This is really frustrating.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I'm wondering what I did differently not to be attacked by the Primm guys.

I'm not sure. Looks like I'll have to rollback. Unfortunately that means I'll lose a few hours of progress.

I always do when I play an evil character for some reason, on any game I can. I'll play a good character on the first playthrough.

I know my character is. I made her ugly as sin. I have to laugh when I see a close up of her pissed off face as she's killing someone.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

In regards to being KOS with NCR.
Spoiler:
If I go back to my save right before I attack the Legion at Nipton, and don't attack them, then NCR doesn't try to kill me. I think it's because after talking to the Legion you get the "Spread the Word" mission, which is to go talk to NCR and tell them what happened. If I instead killed them, then I believe that mission is failed, or just vanishes, and that causes NCR to attack. Makes absolutely no fucking sense, so I'm guessing it's a bug. Unfortunately it's a bug that cost me 3 1/2 hours.

I haven't seen one yet but I saw a picture of what looks like one in the strategy guide on page 6. His hand is as big as your body.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

So I finally ventured out of Goodspring and its immediate vicinity, to Primm to continue with the "They Went That-A-Way" mission...as soon as I entered
Spoiler:
the Vicki and Vance Casino (after killing a handful of escaped convicts outside), everybody inside started shooting at me, and I ended up killing Johnson Nash. FWIW, I helped Ringo in Goodspring.
So I quit for the night without saving, assuming that probably wasn't in my best interest? WTF?

Hmm, I wonder if that'll happen to me.

Were you wearing something that may get you attacked like something you picked up off the convicts?

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Question for Tarantino, if he happens to read this thread. Will Best Buy stores be getting more stock of the CE, or was the first shipment it as far as CE copies go?

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

So I popped this in for a few hours today - and I was absolutely bored out of my mind! Am I missing something? I do not remember first few hours of Fallout 3 being anywhere near as boring as this has been so far. Also, the interiors look like dog shit.

Yeah, you were wearing the wrong clothing. Try putting on your starting jumpsuit instead.

Maybe that's why I was attacked, too. I had just killed a convict and took his helmet.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Let me just say the Cowboy Repeater rocks my socks.

Oh and a big to Giant Radscorpions that laugh at any bullets I send their way.

On the glitch front, I think my biggest gripe is the Pip Boy getting stuck when I try to use it. It'll come up halfway, and I'll have to lower it and raise it like four or five times. Really annoying.
