Dude, NCR is the only ending besides Yesman that lets you spare the BOS. Not their fault that you were too sloppy to find the option/sucked too hard at speech to pull it off.

No. They were probably some of the only likable people in the entire waste. NCR pissed me off at every turn, the fucking Ceaser want-to-be faction was retarded as shit, the people to the far north with their bombs and airfield were okay but cunts at first. And house was a twat.

Hell, the only smart BOS are the ones from Tactics and 3. Sure the ones in 3 always get bagged on by jaded /v/irgins for being "white knight faggots," and like everything in FO3 they're shittily written, but hell, objectively, when you're an organization with low manpower, but overwhelming military power, and a surplus of tech, arms, and supplies, helping folks out to win the goodwill of the populace and expand your numbers and support base only makes sense. The Midwest BOS's feudal military junta deal they got going on is another valid option for survival. What's not a good way to survive is to close yourself off while you slowly stagnate to death.

There was the one outside the doctor's office, and that's it.

It's a difference in how F3 and FNV approached world-building. F3 places that Brahmin there so you see it and say, "Woah, I guess there's no cows in this crazy world." FNV puts a few Bighorners and some crops in Goodsprings to show that they're a small, self-sustaining community.

Fallout 3 is kind of a themepark.

That makes more sense. Caesar's Legion didn't want to destroy everything, they wanted to synthesize a new civilization out of the ruins of two. If you talk to Caesar about it, he explains it in detail. The rest of Legion doesn't care, though, that's what makes them a boring faction - only one of them has any interesting ideas or dialogue.

Yes, and it makes perfect sense that the combined raider and Super Mutant population around them is easily triple the amount of regular people, and that Jet is on the east coast, and that a VR simulation acts as a key to get into a bunker with a pristine set of power armor and an overpowered Chinese stealth suit.

Don't see how that makes the NCR shitty then. They're just trying to put shit back together after the bombs, and treat people decent while they're at it. They don't always give folks a choice as to weather they want to be in the NCR or not, but how's that different than any government that's ever been? Sure they make people pay taxes, but all those soldiers keeping the legion from breeding your ass, research programs, and food distribution programs don't fund themselves. NCR is thoroughly neutral, maybe slightly positive in my opinion.

A-are people in this thread serious? Did FO3 brainwash them this badly?

The BoS are maniacal xenophobes with a super weapons fetish. They will literally ethnically cleanse entire villages if they so happened to have a couple of laser or plasma rifles. They're a cult of psychos who think themselves naturally superior to others. There's is little to like about them, and it fucking bothers me that people think they're 'bros'.

BTFO of them is still one of my favorite quests. Befriending them, gaining their trust, learning to use their power armour and then wearing a stealth boy to activate the self-destruct sequence knowing they're all going to choke on dirt is gratifying. Nothing of value was lost.

What makes the legion dumb isn't what Caesar is up to, but the fact that noone in the legion believes in it, or even knows about it, except for him.

House never lies to you. The endings also implies you have control as well, his right hand. He trusts you and if you got evil karma he even fears you.

He has never lied nor had reason to. Why would he? All his eggs were in one basket, The Courier. Pissing you off would be a death sentence to his plans.

He only chooses to save New Vegas because he knows he can't save the entire world. Its not about saving humanity, its making sure a part of it lives on. He actually tells you this himself -- if he could, he would save teh world, but he knows he can't.

You're never forced into doing anything other than obeying the rather free rules he has for Vegas.

Is it possible to do an entire playthrough with a minigun

I'm thinking of sneaking to Novac, killing the rogue Nightkin with my starting weapon, repairing it, and going back to the beginning of the game.

Everything must die to minigun.

Should I stream it?

I wasn't talking about his choice to only save new Vegas. I'm saying, when he gets to space, who's going with him? Also, the whole premise of "making sure a part of humanity lives on" is pointless when the NCR, the independent settlements and tribes all over the place, and the Legion seem to point towards the fact that humanity is living on just fine without him. House is gonna do something awesome for a few people, and leave everyone else in the dust.

Hey retard, what reason does he have to lie? Are you fucked in the brain or something? He's a shriveled up husk of a man living in a tube. He's doing what he's doing because he knows he's the only one that can do it.

Cosmic radiation is a real-life thing. It doesn't prevent space travel being possible.

The ghouls just didn't have adequate equipment to protect the interior of the spaceships, or the people inside, from it. Which works fine for them anyway, because ghouls.

Best option if you want a lot of fights. Legion has like three bases total in the entire Mojave while the NCR is sitting pretty with like a dozen. Throw in that mod that gives NCR the sick black armor and you feel like you're really bringing the hammer down on those assholes.
>>
>>275532943
Except Legion and NCR are said to fall apart. Legion will surely with Caesars inevitable death, and they don't follow the Legion, they follow his god-ego.

NCR however is too big for its own good, and people don't like them. In game, its suggested a civil war might spur because of them.

Another civilization downfall wouldn't help Fallout's world at all.

Also the people of Mojave would go with him. As he said, he'd do it in the long future. Its just a example of what he can do, not his end goal.

You seem to be deluded into thinking that House is trying to fix things. He's not. He's gonna go build his own thing, somewhere else, which he will fill with things he likes, and pretend like the old things don't exist anymore. I mean, even with house flying off into space, the NCR will still probably end up dominating the wasteland, life will go on, and everyone will forget about House, wherever he's gone and fucked off to. He's essentially just vault tech, only less criminally negligent and in space. He's the "take my ball and go home" faction.

Except it is, when its 100 year plan. The point of the robots isn't saving humanity, its protecting Vegas and letting it grow in peace.

And exactly what is House' reason to lie to you? He has already seen what you'll do to people who betray you (Benny) and what you're capable of. Again, he's also afraid of you and has respect for you as the end game tells you.

He still doesn't lie to your in game either.

you'll need small rifle primers and a lot of them

and the supply of 5.56mm rounds is simply not large enough at that point in the game (only small rifle round you'll find)

maybe if you get the junk ammo perk but then you'll be repairing your minigun constantly and you need an ungodly amount of tin cans for minigun ammo
>>
>>275533219
With the CASE mod, it might be doable, but I'm using CASE, and doing essentially that, only with the .50cal hmg from WMX, and even with that things low fire rate, I'm having trouble keeping up, and have to carry a backup weapon for low priority threats. It could just be my lack of diligence though, as I don't squeeze out all the ammo I can, since I'd rather play the game than make bullets all day.

Also, word to the wise, unless your computer is an absolute beast, don't use high explosive ammo in a minigun. I can use it in the lmg, or any other full auto weapon in the game, but if I try to use it in a minigun, I drop from 60 to 15 fps. It's brutal.

No, and that was the reson I removed mr House. Up to this point his choices were reasonable, this one was not. And so he became useless..

Caesars New Regime to overhaul the Legion. Some of its bullshit but you'll need it because next you want NCR Rearmament to give the NCR some fighting edge. After that, get Alternative Start then play as either a NCR or Legion agent trying to wipe out the other faction. Should be fun for a bit.

Now you're just making shit up. He's already built his thing. Vegas is his. The only new thing he's building is humanity's future, and he's building it right here in New Vegas. The entire reason he wants his robot army upgraded is so Vegas is his, the cash keeps flowing and the progress is steady.

>I mean, even with house flying off into space, the NCR will still probably end up dominating the wasteland, life will go on, and everyone will forget about House, wherever he's gone and fucked off to.
The fuck am I even reading here? The NCR are like the Bolshevik's - kikes who will return the world back to the way it was, and inevitably lad to another nuclear holocaust. It's also amusing how you think they'll dominate the Wasteland when the fucking Legion still holds the East.

Jesus you must have some double-think going on.
House is an egomaniac. He wants to secure his power.
He became what he was through shrewd business accumen, not mechanical genius, stealing his underlings work and ruthlessly destroying the competition.
You'd know this if you'd read the terminals in places like REPCONN.

Further, he's vulnerable without an empire built around him. Stuck in one place, exposure to the outside world a death sentence.
If he doesn't have an army of robots (and more) to secure his personhood & keep up his power supply, he's fucked.

House is an egomaniac. And so what?

House is a business man, but he's also a technological genius. What he has done supports this.

What's the problem with him destroying competition too? What else would a man like him do? A man that didn't do that, would never end up in a position like him, nor would they be able to rule over Vegas while NCR and Legion are around.

>If he doesn't have an army of robots (and more) to secure his personhood & keep up his power supply, he's fucked.
>Of course he wants to secure his power
That's so redundant to even say, its like saying Legion is nothing without Caesar or its army.

So let's recap.

1. He's an egomaniac. This means he cares about himself. Above all others.
2. He's a shrewd businessman that got where his is by RUTHLESS, aka MERCILESS and CALLOUS means. That means he fucks people over, deceives when needed, and employs all dirty tricks to get the job done, because how else could a man get where he was without doing so?
3. He's not some goddamn mother Teresa now that he's a raisin in a tube. Self-preservation is still very much in effect and guiding his actions, NOT 'humanity's future'.

And no dude, he might have /some/ technical competence, but he leeched off his acquisitions and employees.
His little eulogy should spell out just how much of a hack he really is.

>You're an underage retard. You keep saying 'self gain' like he's still fucking walking around the place.
Self gain is still very much relevant.

I did. In my second playthrough.
Was playing a bad karma character so I just went there pretending to be a friend and opened fire on everyone.
They ran around like roaches, trying to get their power armors and survive my explosives and the turrets lasers. Not a single one survived.
It felt really good.

You know how you can manipulate the camera to grab things behind windows and whatnot?
Well, if you grab elijah's body, stuff the gold in it and put it right against the forcefield, run the whole gauntlet, then clip the camera around, you can grab all the gold and walk out with a few seconds to spare

After killing them all and looting their armor first, yes

Most of the non-tribals I met had a culture just as sophisticated as that found at NV.
And given how general the term 'culture' is, I'd wager most of the tribals are 'sophisticated' as well.
If we're talking about technology, I didn't see anything in vegas particularly impressive. Not when we've got Enclave, BOS, Helios 1, Hoover dam, the boomers, vaults, etc.
Frankly, the only advantages House has over Benny are:
1. Living for a really long time
2. Having expert knowledge of pre-war tech, (which Benny could acquire elsewhere).

Well, if the kings make peace with the NCR, House kinda levels a false claim at them, issues an ultimatum for their departure and then mercilessly slays them to the last man.
Not to mention "kill anyone you can't get to side with me".

If you follow the post chain, that was the original post I was responding to.

Clearly they don't. Anarchy, thievery and survival of the fittest is still around the Mojave. Their technological culture is far lacking as well. Education is also non-existant.

Benny would not know how to help people build up in terms of technology, Yes Man tells you of his troubles.

The King makes an ultimatum to the Kings, but they break it. I didn't agree with him on this.

House isn't "the best", he's the least worst.

If you save the stealthboy you find in the villa, you can escape while overloaded with the gold & trap elijah.

That said, I planted c4 in the vault and blew it to kingdom come. Figured Veronica & friends would prefer he met a quick, certain death.

is boone's questline any good? I'm thinking about doing one last New Vegas run, and I've never gotten it, but I really don't want to side with the NCR again

Implying Vegas is any different in any of these measures.
Mind you, most non-tribals live in towns.

I think we'll just disagree on which toxin is least toxic.

This.

The best way is to simply waltz in there, activate the self destruct, and stealthboy out.

No muss no fuss. I don't even think you suffer that much of a penalty to faction standing if you don't directly kill any of them, so this method lets you kill the BoS without making Veronica hate you.

If you actually use or care about Veronica I guess.
