And you're not going with OWB because it had shit weapons in it?
OWB had heated melee weapons that I really enjoyed using, so I'll give it that. But for me, simple and reliable guns were my favourites. Out of all the guns of all the DLCs, my favourite weapon remains the default, unmodded Service Rifle.
I really liked both default .45 weapons from Honest Hearts. And the super-heated saturnite fist was cool to give to Veronica, even if she felt so over-confident she tried to take on 6 deathclaws with it. It didn't end well.
I don't remember anything about the weapons from Lonesome Road at all. They mustn't have been good.
Not true at all. Lonesome Road added plenty of wonderful weapons: industrial hand, H&H Tools nail gun, two unique grenade rifles, satchel charges, red glare, bowie knives, and the shoulder mounted machinegun. And let us not forget it has arguably the best medium class armor in the entire game: Elite Riot Gear.
Should merge with this one.
(and possibly made sticky to avoid it being remade again and again)
OWB has what might be the best weapon in the game: Christine's Silencer COS Rifle, FWIW.
Best damage on a weapon using .308 ammo, higher DPS and a better crit multiplier than a normal sniper rifle, and it doesn't break stealth.
Where the hell is this?
It's in the ruined building overlooking Little Yangtze. It's the weapon that Christine was using to try to assassinate Elijah, when he was in the watch tower working out how to get the bomb collars to work.
Good, good... will find it.
Finding Christine's rifle was awesome. Been playing New Vegas for years and still haven't found everything. I found it after reading Elijah's notes about seeing a sniper-scope glint on the building opposite him. It's such a badass image in my mind.
I love how everywhere you seem to look Dead Money is hailed as the worst DLC in NV, yet here it is even beating out Old World Blues. There's a word for this, something that started out unpopular but changed overtime... I want to saw "Cult Classic"? No, that's not it...
I voted Dead Money in the poll but truthfully Honest Hearts is neck and neck with it. I love Honest Hearts with it's scenery, Joshua Graham, Randall Clark, the religious overtones (as I have said before I am a sucker for religious subjects). Dead Money is awesome for just about everything, morals, characters, setting, hell just about everything. It is such a contrast that I fell in love with it the first time I played it. Old World Blues while I love tremendously for it's zany characters and wacky B movie plot (that is still good!) just didn't make the impression that the earlier two did. Lonesome Road is something of a mixed bag to me, great environment with some of that environmental storytelling. The fault I have with it is it's linearity and that is pretty much it. Obsidian did a damn fine job with the DLC and the overarching plot is a feat to be sure.
Lonesome Road and Dead Money. Dead Money provides an extremely challenging experience that's both unique and fun.
Lonesome Road has the best loot in all of New Vegas, best looking dusters and coats and badass weapons alongside a really good storyline that wraps up the Courier's background.
Personally, I'd prefer Lonesome Road, but I love them both so much.
Dead Money is so good it could be it's own little standalone game. Recently played Honest Hearts again. Honestly can't say I'm too impressed. The most interesting part of that DLC is Joshua and he's barely in it, not that theres much to be a part of in that super short DLC.
Yeah Honest Hearts is way too short. Dead Money was for me sometimes way too long! Old World Blues is the best in that it has a fair medium. I also love it for the story, the world and comedy.
I find Old World Blues way too pretentious with it's "Science!" funs. Also it starts with a ton of over the top jokes. I got the same feeling when i played Fallout 2 for the first time. Too much juveline dialog too much theme park feeling...
Playing Dead Money on the other gave me same feeling when i first played Fallout so there is it.
I have no qualms with juvenile humour. I think New Vegas hit the right tone by having Wild Wasteland be an optional thing and having only pockets of wackiness, like in Old World Blues, in specific places.
Old World Blues. Unlike games like Fallout 2/3/4, OWB has a justification for it's insanity (namely everyone involved is utterly insane.) It was probably the most interesting of the DLC as well, at least character wise. The worst bit is probably the lack of access to RNV and MMR.
Dead Money had great writing but the actual game was disappointing. It was repetitive and half baked. Of course, I enjoyed it for it's writing which was fantastic.
I actually prefer the gameplay in Dead Money to Old World Blues, which just feels like a theme park extension of the base game. The gameplay of Dead Money is so alien it feels like a new experience.
