    Helping Boone find out who kidnapped his wife.

    I thought I was escorting her outside of town in the dark so Boone can have a word with her...

    ...next thing I know her head explodes. :crazy:

    I believe he tells you what he plans to do with the one who sold his wife. He told you to use the beret for that, why would he ask such a thing if he plans on confronting her?

    Yeah, I think he does say his plans but for some reason in that (first) play through I must of overlooked that; Got me by total surprise the first time.

    There's a scripted moment in Lonesome Road in the High Road place full of Deathclaws. I sneaked into a broken down bus to scavenge some ammo and heard a loud bang against the roof of the bus. There was a roar and I heard ED-E got knocked unconscious outside. The roar earlier was similar to those Tunnellers I'd met earlier so I was like, ok, shouldn't be too hard, so I crept back outside...

    And there was a fucking huge deathclaw right next to me!

    First time I've screamed out loud whilst playing a video game in a long time.

    (turns out if you go into the bus a deathclaw drops onto its roof from the bridge above. Because I was crouched I couldn't see outside through the windows to see the deathclaw walking around :P )

    When I was in Gomorrah, and NCR Trooper MP came up to me, told me it was time to pay my dues, and started shooting me. Considering the fact I'm liked by the NCR this was a strange occurrence indeed. I reloaded and it didn't happen, but I still pointedly avoid all NCR Trooper MPs that I see.

    On a more deliberate note, I've killed Mr. House ten times over and yet every time I see his real body I still get the chills.

    Probably when I headed north through Goodsprings, hoping to find a shortcut to Vegas...and then I was quickly gang-raped by what I believed to be Wasps in the 3 seconds that I saw them buzzing towards me at the speed of light.

    I didn't even get enough time to discharge a single pathetic 5.56mm round from my little Varmint Rifle before I succomed to the poison.

    I actually managed to capture my WTF moment on video from time to time and upload them on my channel.
    Here's my latest video and you can tell EXACTLY what it is by the title.

    Wanted to play a bit with Audacity so I stuck with the chipmunk voice for the video, there's more but I don't want to come off as an advertiser.

    When I went into VATS, having completely forgotten that I took "Miss Fortune" at some point. Suddenly, this weird chick appears out of nowhere in VATS and cripples my enemies? What the hell?

    So I picked up the Ultimate Edition during the Steam Summer Sale. $5 to play on my laptop. How could I refuse?)

    And there are a couple big WTF? moments with Steam version.

    The deathclaw at Primm Pass is missing. The robots at the crashed vertibird are missing. Has anyone else every has issues like this?

    Gah! Note to self: Don't type with the lights off while lying in bed with your laptop on your stomach. I'm embarrassed by my typos...

    And I'll give that suggestion a try.

    I was playing a character who was semi pro NCR at first but had been subverted by the Legion. At the time I had Cassidy as my companion. I wanted her to meet some friends of mine who owned a laser store in New Vegas :evil:

    Anywho, I had done enough anti NCR stuff to get the "warning" from NCR rangers saying I better change my ways or else I'm going to get myself killed.

    At the same time Cassidy said something similar. Unlike the heavily armed rangers, I mouthed off to her. She took... exception to that. With a shotgun.

    As I'm trying to fight her off she suddenly gets riddled with shots off in the distance. The NCR rangers apparently didn't take kindly to me getting shot at just yet, and attacked Cassidy, the pro-NCR lady, to protect me!

    Ah... Irony.

    Poor Cass. I like her. Great attitude on that girl.

    So... No-bark cheats at Caravan!

    Just passing time and figuring what the hell, had the Platinum trophy on PS3, may as well go for all my achievements on the Steam version and since there's no max number of games you can play with No-bark, I figured I'd just get the Caravan Master playing him.

    He's a friggin cheater!!!

    Went in up in Caravan 20-11. Next thing I know it's 21-20.

    Seriously, we lay our first three cards and then his next three cards are all friggin jacks, wiping my three cards from the board. I won one game, he won nine in a row. And it wasn't his personal deck because I randomized the deck. Every friggin hand, jack after jack after jack from him.

    I eventually won, got my achievement with a 30-26 record, walked way far away, went into a crouch and blew his goddamn head off with a sneak attack from my trusty fully modded hunting rifle. :D

    I was on the fiend-bounty quest. I got the First Recon to help me out with Driver Nephi.

    So there I was, maybe ten meters from the bombed-out buildings Nephi had himself in. I lower a fiend or two to critically low health with a sneak critical, then, draw them out into the field. At this point, maybe five fiends are charging from all sides and I feel a bit like a soldier in the Anglo-Zulu war.
    I fire my repeater like mad, thanks to the long tube mod I gave it, when the Fiends start getting picked off one by one by grace of the Recons.
    I go further into the buildings, and attract the attention of Nephi. There he is, charging me with his club like a crazed tribal. I begin to run...

    When the whole entire First Recon CHARGES in, SWAT-style, shooting the raiders at point blank. Nephi is surrounded on all sides by "snipers' basically breathing down his neck and shooting him like mad.

    yeah. my experience with NCR snipers- fucking maniacs.

    Playing Lonesome Road now for the first time. I just killed Bear, one of the Marked Men. Shot him with my hunting shotgun, and as I have the And Stay Back perk, he was knocked down. Shot him again and he flies straight up so fast I can barely catch it. I stand around wondering what the hell happened, still seeing the red dot on my radar. And after a few seconds he falls to the ground again and dies.

    Yeah, I love my hunting shotgun and the And Stay Back perk. I've seen some crazy, crazy enemies flying. It's even funnier when it's something big like a Nightkin for Deathclaw.

    The hutning shotgun feels good, doesn't it? I don't really know what it is, but they managed to make that gun feel soo rewarding to fire.

    Same with the Bozar, it just feels so damn right somehow.
