How far have you gotten, Mac?
@Mac/Napo: You guys are making me want to play New Vegas again.
...But then I remember how much I dislike emptying a magazine into something for it to not die and that bothers me, and I don't want to play anymore.
I wish there was a mode where the bullets did realistic damage... Seriously, just because someone is wearing some leather armor doesn't mean they should take like 15+ 9mm SMG rounds before they die. Oh well, I think I'll play anyway. I feel like sneaking through a building and hitting someone with a tire iron for some reason.
To me its part of the cartoony grimdark humor. The supermutants can take three combat shotgun shells to the head because they're huge, so they've got to have titanium skulls.
I like it that way; it just wouldn't appeal to me if everyone could just have their heads blown off. Plus, it makes weapon variation pointless, IMO. I mean, why try to get that special plasma rifle if your pathetic little revolver can kill them in one realistic shot?
If you want to join me and sneak through buildings and hit people with tire irons for real, I'm usually out in my pickup by the McDonalds.
