So I just got New Vegas during the steam sale and I'm trying to play through it non-violently. But the first sidequest I was given in Goodsprings doesn't seem to have a non-violent solution. The only thing I can see is if I get the townsfolk to join in on the gunfight and then I do nothing and just watch the carnage happen, it might not register that I have killed anybody. If that's the only way to do it without killing anybody, fine, but it just doesn't seem like a particularly good solution to me. I would think there should be a way to get Cobb to go away with a speech check or to do something else for him that would get him to lay off Ringo. But no dice as far as I can tell. Anybody have any other suggestions? Thanks.
