    I'm not talking about combat efficiency, just about roleplay and stuff. Does Skynet get any interesting lines, does he trigger any interesting events, et c?
    I'd like to know that, so as to decide whether to take him into my party, or keep Cassidi instead.

    Skynet is the reward for the SAD Skynet quest. He triggers nothing outside that area.

    So, essentially, it has nothing going for it except for its combat abilities?

    If you bust up the raiders or in some way screw over Bishop and have skynet he'll say something to the effect of, "Yeah, heard about a guy, running around the wastes with a robot... just like you!"

    Sure he'll say that for other NPCs, but yeah... can't think of anything else Skynet helps one with.

    Anyone else confused about how he gets up stairs? Especially in Bishop's Casino for the second floor...



    The Cybernetic Brain does actually have some very interesting lines - he sometimes rambles about taking over the world as far as I can recall and he's a pretty interesting sort of companion IMHO.

    "He" gets Angela Bishop to livingly carry "him" upstairs.
