Yet it seems to go by in the blink of an eye.

I just got it this weekend and that was about the fifth or sixth perk I picked up. Only on level 6 but have the laser rifle, flamer, shishkebab, a couple of mininukes, found the science bobble-head. I'm sure I'm missing a lot. The insta-travel is nice.

I guess I'll tackle the deathclaw area later to get my hands on the gatling laser.

Another nice hint: If you come across a broadcasting tower, you can switch it on and the signal leads you to a hiding place of somebody.


I snitched on Burke before I had a chance to. No way to get the key, now.

It's hard to take long shots when your 5 year old daughter is hanging on your arm, watching you play.

Me neither!

So, I'm not quite to level 10 but I've already found dad. Seems like I may have took a shortcut somewhere?

Did anyone else get pissed off getting caught in that stupid Vault 112 lounger-chair fantasy machine BS?

Sounds like you're staying pretty focused on the main storyline missions. You'll get to the end of the game a lot faster that way.

Ben got stuck in the lounger and had to restore the game from an earlier point.

It's not too hard to figure it out. Just tap the objects in the empty house in the right order. You'll hear if you messed up the song.

I'm crying in my cup tonight because I had a chance to hook up with Bittercup and said the wrong thing and fucked it all up.
