    Me either. I just can't be as cold blooded as Charla. :lol3

    So, being the good guy pays off too. Last night I went to check out Jericho's house in MegaTon.

    I pick the lock on his door and the mofo is asleep in bed! I figure, well, I'll be quiet and just look around, I really want that Chinese sword someone said was in here.

    I find it, and I'm ripping him off when he wakes up. I think, 'Uh oh, he's gonna mess me up now!"

    But the dude got up, walked right past me and out the door without a word.

    Guess he thinks I'm just too nice to jack his stuff....:rofl

    Tell him he owes you (for the collective pain and suffering he's caused) a $1 dollar credit for every Pic-a-Day commute picture he's posted.


    Heck, that should get you FO3 + a few goodies. :lol3

    I gotta share this.

    I've been the most virtuous- building karma like a mofo.

    Well, I visit Rivet City- and accidently let a certain someone know there's a slave on board. He says he's going to look into it. I feel bad, so I ice the slaver...

    Whoops!

    Now I've got everybody on the ship trying to kill me, holstering my weapon does nothing- so I have to kill my way out of Rivet City.

    Man, my karma took a beating as I took out the trash!

    I made a mistake of not having a separate save, so once locked into that course of action, I had no choice but to get to killin'.

    I had to go buy it for my PC lastnight & my son is happy because I didn't kick him off the PS3 to play COD:WAW. I managed to make it out of the vault, but I'm carrying so much crap I can barely move:D . My mom always taught me, "It's better to have it & not need it than need it & not have it." So I hope those dozen jumpsuits & that coffee pot come in handy!

    On Xbox, it's the "X" button to rehholster your weapon. hold it down until your weapon is holstered.

    "B" button brings up the PIP boy, but holding it down activates your PIP-BOY light- useful for avoiding bear traps. Or you could simply set them off with your gimp foot- it's a "special" technique I seem to have perfected.

    Okay- so far, here's my strategy:

    I like to build up my strength, so I can cary more.
    I focused on my small guns and repair skills.
    I've worked on lockpick skills, but neglected the science skill.
    I'm working on the comano skill now- in short, I like to snipe.

    Lincoln's Repeater is the shiznit.

    This game is way worth the scratch- and the instant travel rules.

    If you have multiple weapons, you can "repair" some to reduce what you're carrying.

    Everything can be sold- so when in doubt, load up- but keep an eye on "value".

    There are a load of burned books, etc.- when I'm in between, I'll grab a bunch to sell if nothing else is available.

    Also- what seems like "junk" might be valuable later as you build weapons.

    Just dump enough of that crap at the entrance to the vault (where it's easy to find) so that you are unencumbered. You can fast travel back and pick it up later.

    I will drop an item, see how I move. I do that until I can move fast again.





    A pressure cooker? Why the hell would I want a pressure cooker? :lol3

    I somehow know that special technique... first, you run too late when walking through mines, then "find" some bear traps and finally the trap wire to get a hit with a dead corpse. Ruined my Tesla Suit. :rofl

    Places like Rivet City and Megaton are quiet after a while, it will be safe to go back there.


    And I'd love to find a pressure cooker!!! Too many rail nails.

    There's one in the Super-Duper Mart assuming you didn't already sell it.

    I am balls deep in the elder scrolls right now. I can't get enough of it! I really hate that I got turned into a vampire though. I have spent more time trying to get un-undead than I have hours into Farcry 2 so far.

    I am a total winter gamer though. Now it's almost time to ride.
