    Over the past in previous playthroughs, some weird stuff happened during the games.

    -I set some dynamite to explode within the minute. I immediately drop it, and it instantly explodes.
    -After showing Zimmerman the holodisk revealing the truth of his son's death, the regulator behind him shoots at him with his shotgun, but missed and hits me, dealing 250 points of damage (more than enough to kill me!)
    -I dealt 496 points of damage to the Master with a Gatling Laser, then a super mutant soldier appears behind me and shoots, however he misses me and hits the Master, finishing him off!

    I'm sure other people here have had some unusual and funny things happen to them during the game. Post them here!

    The dynamite thing has happened. You probably have cheat engine running in the background making the game faster thus speeding up the explosion.

    Funny thing happening for me is when fighting in New Reno Shark Club, 1st floor. If I take the fight to the lower part of the casino, usually some critters standing outside get involved in the battle.

    So the info box goes:

    Casino Bouncer misses.
    Prostitute uses Jet.
    Bishop's Man misses.
    Prostitute uses Jet.
    You were hit for no damage.
    Prostitute uses Jet.

    Nah, sounds more like a critical fail, like all the other examples. It happens. "Jinxed" can make for some hilarious playthroughs (and mighty frustrating ones, too).

    Dynamite exploding prematurely isn't unusual, it happens all the time when your explosive skill is low. Now I'm tempted to try a Jinxed+High Luck playthrough and kill the master with friendly fire only.

    Jinxed is fun when you're into something like that. But it loses efficacy the farther in game you go because (IIRC), all it does is making every miss have a 50% chance of becoming a critical miss. Later in the game enemies don't miss that much, so Jinxed is doing nothing most of the time >_>.

    On another playthrough, an enemy character said "This is going to hurt" before Cassidy criticals him with a Gauss Rifle shot!

    Hubby and I had been trying to get into the Seirra Army Base for two days. We'd even gotten to the point that we'd looked up hints for how to do it, but weren't finding that "magical path" to sneak between the turrets. As we're about to get mowed down for the 78th time, the turret that's been spewing bullets at us goes dead. Infobox says "Turret MKII critically missed and dropped all its ammo."

    We both jumped up out of our chairs and screamed! And danced. And high-fived. And made rude hand gestures. The house pets were alarmed. It was awesome.
