    Now watch, as they act JUST like the red skeletons from Castlevania: SotM. Knock 'em down and they just get right back up! until you find SOMEthing to drop them for good.

    Fire bombs, maybe?

    Recent Idea: Maybe Ulysses and the Courier were the two who found the Platinum chip in the first place and Ulysses found out what the chip was for so that when the job to deliver the chip came through he passed it off to his once time partner because he knew that only trouble would follow.

    Or maybe the Victor Ulysses theory is correct? If Ulysses is VIctor's Owner he would know who requested the job and that it was dangerous?

    Yeah I'm hoping Victor ties into this somehow. There are just too many coincidences when it comes to Victor for him not to be involved somehow ("Old world flag" on his shack, owner "mysteriously disappeared" a few years back, securitron manufacturing plant at a place we know Ulysses visited, hanging out for a few years for no reason in the very town that you happen to get shot at, being around years before House sent the other securitrons out onto the Strip, etc.)

    Edit: We also know that the scientists at the Big Empty gave personalities to some of their securitrons, something House doesn't seem to do.

    Edit: Except in the case of Jane, but she's not really an AI, she's got the mind of a real person House knew. I doubt House knew any cowboys.

    (Not Sure if this is a gameplay related post or not but....)

    I wonder if there's going to be new Perks/Traits/challenges.

    Of course. Every DLC up to now has had them.

    Anyway, more random musings:

    While I'm inclined to believe this was cut content that just had it's name changed, but I'm just gonna believe that Ulysses had a place to call home at Wolfhorn Ranch. The translated name of the Ranch in Spanish, French, etc. are all "Ulysses' camp."

    Here's a thought that comes from left field. What if Ulysses was one of House's lieutenants before either Benny or the Courier? Ulysses could be the one who recovered the Platinum chip before the events of the game, whose last job was going to be delivering the Platinum chip to House. You know, make sure what he worked on would come to its conclusion.

    It makes me wonder if whatever happened between the Courier and Ulysses had occured because of the Platinum Chip.

    We already know that Ulysses doesn't like the NCR, or the Legion, or the Brotherhood... but we don't know what he thinks of Mr. House. I'm almost sure he won't like House either.

    I'm fairly sure the concept art of Ulysses seen here - the flags on his back - will appear on him in the 'flashback' of Ulysses in the opening narration (much like an unburned Joshua Graham appears in the beginning of Honest Hearts).

    The Woflhorn Ranch-Ulysses' camp thing is common knowledge. It's there because at one point Ulysses was supposed to be a companion.

    On the side note, your posts always make a great reading. Thx.

    I hope there's a quest where you have to lead "The Dad" and "The Kid" through the divide to someplace safer and by turn of events you end up getting"The Kid" as a companion at some brief point where you need to bring him someplace safe, probably one of the other NPC's in the area.

    I also wonder how the ED-E Upgrades are going to fit into the story Narrative? Is it going to be some technology that "Doctor Howard" dug up and rigged to fit onto an eyebot? Is it some technology that was designed to fit onto the original eyebot? Or is it probably going to be technology that adds more character to ED-E like a personality circuit?

    (Not really Speculation as much as a huge WTF?)

    If anyone else out there has beaten Lonesome Road and thinks they have a grasp on the story then please message me. I have no idea what Ulysses meant.

    I will say this, this DLC does go out with an Epic Battle sequence.
    (That's as non-spoiler-ish as I can say it.)

    And There are consequences and new locations in the Mojave Wasteland.

    So, I just downloaded LR and am saved just before entering 'The High Road" (I did the dialogue with Ulysses then got murdered by [spoiler:1867586cbd] Deathclaws [/spoiler:1867586cbd]) and I have to say that from what I've seen and surmised thus far I pretty much hit the nail on the head with my analysis. I for one an thrilled with the narrative, the style of the setting and most of all the culmination of the foreshadowing form vanilla NV and all the DlC's.[/spoiler]
