Exploits: Fallout New Vegas

As the game I have put the most amount of hours into out of any I have ever played, I see fitting for the first in the exploits series to focus on Fallout New Vegas. As seen above the official guide is a pretty hefty read, so here I offer you a “litter bit of help” in your voyage across the Mojave. So here’s my 3 top tips for Fallout New Vegas;

1) Save frequently and across multiple files.
Unfortunately this game has a few bugs in that cause the screen to freeze and a reboot is often needed, there are also quests that require a timely response.  In addition, quest completion may change faction loyalties in ways you had not anticipated and thus, having a few save points to choose and re load from when necessary, may prove incredibly useful for you trophy hunters and completionists out there.

2) Repair!
So simple, yet so easy to forget, when you find yourself over-encumbered; bring up your pip boy and repair any items you can, this will bring your carry total down again, to make room for even more sunset sarsaparilla/toy cars/coffee cups. (Credit to my boyfriend for this tip)

3) Don’t neglect your Speech skill.
The main difference I noticed from playing New Vegas after Fallout 3 was the emphasis New Vegas puts on speech, not necessarily a good thing, but it makes for a different kind of game I guess.  This is the first tip I often give my friends about the game, as none of us are “speechy” types, usually, in games.  Don’t neglect to put points in this skill from early on in the game, you will thank me for it later.

Happy Trails !
