    I am getting the xbox 360 of the game. I am studying Buddhism and one of it's tenets is forbids killing any sentient being. Killing in video games are allowed because you re killing pixels not sentient beings.

    I am going to try to play New Vegas without killing any living thing. Also I am going to turn on Hardcore mode as well.

    See what happens on Tuesday.

    You will most likely have a super hard time with the game then.

    Yet the Devs say it's possible.

    I'm going to try a no kill run, but i will do it with a certain style, you know talking my way out of everything lieing cheating and stealing without killing anyone.

    Oh my! Cheating and lying! Why, no one would do that after all society has collapsed! Just look at the east coast BOS: they all believe in love and peace and being the holy saviors of the wastes! And we all know that Fallout 3 is the best game in the series, aside from Fallout: POS. :whistle:

    John, you should try the "Jesus" run where any time you are attacked by an enemy, you use First Aid on it instead of fighting it. Oh yeah!

    The main quest, but not everything else around it.

    the devs also said that there is non lethal ammo, so no killing may not necessarily mean no violence.

    You have to deal with random baddies some how.

    Oh really? Nice, that might add a whole other playthrough! Haha... cappin' people with rubber bullets and tranquilizers just seems like a lot of fun.

    This sounds hard but not impossible but you might be screwed when a quest says "kill this" and that.

    In the Best Buy interview, Josh Sawyer said that there were no vital quests which couldn't be solved without killing.

    A Jesus run, that sounds stupendous, I will do that I'll even make my guy look like the Jesus from "passion of the Christ" I'll even walk on watter with no-clip, and just to help out those like me with low hopes for fallout NV I'll remind you that you can rent before you buy, that way you can play the game find out how good/bad it is, than purchase it if it is a good game.

    I wonder if the "Jesus" run is actually possible? Is First Aid even a skill in FO3/NV? Maybe I'll try it in Fallout 1.

    This is possible. Just remember that you have to switch uniforms and such or else factions will open fire on you.

    actually if you are neutral with them you will do best NOT to use a uniform, because if they catch you in a stolen uniform you are dead.

    Edit: I wish I could just run through a town using healing palm on everyone I pass by.
