@Mach: YES! YES! Do it! You won't regret it. Just remember to turn autosave off and save often, and the effect freezes have on you should be nada. Forget the other crap, play Fallout, you stubborn old mule.
@Napo: Leno was not funny. He couldn't even make me laugh when I was 10.
@Fallout: It's really not going for realism at all, so there's no reason to get upset. It's an RPG, not a straight first person shooter. If you want quick kills go stealth. Also. Deathclaws are awesome. They were so wimpy in Fo3. This is how they're supposed to be. The single most feared creature in the wasteland. Have you fought the Alpha Male and Female yet? They're blast. Your reward is a Fat Man. Pun not originally intended, but now that I noticed it's absolutely intentional.
Well, I liked him. I always liked his history quizzes that people on the street couldn't even answer (like, 1st grade questions).
I think I saw the alpha male and ran for my life.
