Dude, I have that hat too, +5 sneak, but I never wear it because I forget to switch to my trading hat whenever I'm in town. :)

My hat gives +10 speech, +5 barter, +1 int. I'm a statesman Jim, not a doctor.

oh, and you're sporting that lame-ass hunting rifle. :P

"f" changes the view.
If you hold "f" you get third person and can rotate the camera.

this is for the pc version, I don't know about console.

Hold down the print screen button for a couple of seconds without moving...then you'll get a little prompt showing you that a screen shot has been saved.

Now, i can hardly shoot someone without their limbs exploding into person confetti. After a battle with a few enemies, I usually have to sort through body parts to find the right piece to the right body.

You know, even though I'm sitting on >20000 caps, and am past the point of no return, I cannot physically stop scavenging. I don't know why, but I feel a strong desire to take everything that I see. Pretty much every vendor on my map is constantly broke due to my having to sell off loads of items every five minutes. I think I have a problem.

The more money I made the less I picked up. Basically, I started being more discriminating. First I stopped picking up anything that sells for less than 10 chips, then 20, now I pass over anything that has weight unless it sells for over 100 chips, and even then I have a tendency to ignore guns and armor. Ammo is like a second currency. It's weightless and sells for a lot at times. Missiles in particular sell for 40 a pop and you can carry as many as you want.

Bloody Mess is significantly less rewarding in this game.

I never used it in the old ones, because I always saw the really good death animations as something of a reward for a good crit or good shot, but in this one it's pretty much just the same exploding limbs thing every time, even with energy guns and such that have much cooler potential animations.

It's all about value to weight ratio to maximize your profit while scavenging. At the beginning, I would pick up items that were 2.5/1, then went 10/1, and am now only pulling 15/1. And I will pick up anything that has no weight. I have probably 200 pencils on me now.

Lincoln's hat is in the same area as the Repeater. If I remember correctly, you can find it one of the random side rooms on a pile of rubble. The roof in the room is caved in, so that might help a little. I came across it completely by accident, but it was the best find so far. +5 to speach, too.:D

Now, class, notice how resistance looks like futile. Now that the greetings are over, I believe we can all agree that "resistance is futile".

You couldn't. You could leave body part specific damage in, but require aiming. Chromehounds had something similar.

However, pausing combat and letting someone queue up death shots? Not really going to happen.

It's not too horrible...Neverwinter Nights, etc...pulled it off. You just need to communicate with the other person more "Going into VATS"...or if one person entered it, both did...you could queue up shots if you needed or not.

Co-op is a bit different, thought you meant some player on player wasteland roaming goodness. The games are also quite different. VATS works in single player because it's not Jarring. You know it's happening. VATS in multiplayer would be as annoying as when someone randomly pauses the game.

For Co-op, VATS would have to have its damage nerfed to such a degree that it wouldn't be worth triggering.

You could have both characters share Action Points, so if one person uses VATS, it affects them both. That could inspire team work while using it.

Shared resources is always a pain in the ass. It penalizes noobs and those who play with them to a degree that kind of ruins the experience IMO. Also, if it's just the action points of one character spread to two. What incentive would there be to using anything but the stronger character for the attack?

Well, that would be a valid strategy if you had two unbalanced characters. Personally, I think it would be awesome to be able to roll as a non-combat focused character with a tough yet dumb heavy weapons dude to take out the trash.

I loved the Antagonizer/Mechanist quest. Too much fun and great quest rewards. Did anyone try wearing one set of armor into the base of the other? They address and attack you as if you were the superhero/villain. Fun stuff.

Yes, you are missing out. As a person who prefers FPS games, I initially defaulted to playing this game as a regular FPS. Now I can't even fight a mole rat without using it;) You basically need it against super mutants. And really, it is just plain awesome watching the slow motion actions play out.

So how do you get a good few of your character for a lot of these screen shots? Do you just wait for the camera to start circling your character, or is there a command?

And thanks for the tip on repairing Lincolns repeater. I can take it out and use it now.

Instead of pressing 'F', hold it down and then you can arrange the view to your liking.

Dogmeat is... interesting. It's cool you can ask him to find guns and ammo and stuff. Also helpful that he growls at close enemies... but for the life of me I can't understand why he picks some enemies to attack and others to leave alone.

You are better off not finding him, if you want him to remain as one of your favorite characters.

Looks more like a Nuka Grenade to me. They blow up with pretty blue flames.

ya, i've been running around with dogmeat and another minion... they just run off full sprint to the horizon sometimes when i'm standing on a car, i think they think if they run around to the other side of the earth they will finally be in their correct positions... don't get me wrong i like my minions dumb as fuck, but i also like them competent.

highlight of one of my minion's lives was when she opened up an electrified door to a pen holding a supermutant... she ran in and proceeded to burn down said mutant's ankles with her flamethrower.

Yeah. Dogmeat did that to me. Don't know how the fucking dog figured out how to unlock the gate. Definitely the last straw that turned Dogmeat into a housepet.
