    New Vegas introduced these two perks, allowing unique dialogue and increased damage against members of the same sex. In Fallout 3, there was only lady killer and black widow which increased damage and gave new dialogue with members of the opposite sex. Black Widow was obviously better for women. In New Vegas, Confirmed Bachelor was better for men.

    What if Fallout 3 had these perks? Let's use this thread to list the people who could be influence in dialogue with them and in what manner.

    For example, with confirmed bachelor, you could tell Dukov that you can have a good time even without women. With Cherchez La Femme, you could quickly befriend Simone at the Temple of the Union and win her respect immediately, or you could even use it to intimidate her.

    That would require good writing.

    We're talking about Fallout 3.

    They'd probably be grossly underutilized like child at heart.

    I never took that perk, doesn't that only have like...2 dialogue options in the entire game?

    Wasn't the snooty clothing shop keeper in Ten Penny gay?

    Confirmed Bachelor could have been used on him.

    Whether it's in there or not, Fallout 3 would still be fucking gay.

    From what little I remember of Dukov, I don't think he'd swing the other way. Then again, given Fallout 4's formula, anything goes.

    Yeah I think he was. Definitely camp anyway.

    Then I'd inevitably be disappointed that there wasn't an unlisted quest around cheating with Carol or Greta in Underworld and then convincing the other to take them back afterwards.
