    I have no idea why. They removed all dialogue explaining the different pronounciations and every legionaire says 'Sseesar'. Which is weird, because for germans the 'kaiser' or 'kaisar' pronounciation is actually the more common way because for the way that it's spelt it's the natural german pronounciation.
    The german localization is awful.
    Even worse, thanks to Steam I can't even buy the english version without major fiddling with proxies. I want to buy that game a second goddamn time but I can't. They're essentially forcing me to resort to piracy if I don't want a more or less broken game (the translation and voice acting is so bad that I consider it 'broken').

    17- Despite having very few guns, the legion is the most feared faction in vegas

    18- Soda makes you more thirsty.

    19- Even if the message of something is prevalent through the whole game, some people just won't be able to get the point (Dead money)

    Ok... so why never bring along more than a cap? I have not logged 1000k hours on FNV... so I don't get the really obscure stuff I guess.

    I do wonder if some people played the game, or if they just come here to troll any game made post 2000. Goodsprings has a militia, and it isn't any more prosperous than larger settlements.

    This is just general knowledge. Everyone knows sugar dehydrates you.

    That's actually true in real life as well, the sodium in the soda will cause you to get dehydrated faster.

    Because they're effective without guns, as well as more than proficient at guerilla tactics.

    Plus the whole "burn/crucify/enslave" people thing they've got going.

    20 - being a ghoul coupled with a high skill in leadership nets you an eternal, reverby angel voice

    21 - apparent high tech and easy to recover-technologies, such as helios one - are worth to send thousands of soldiers in to fight the brotherhood - but then it is normal to defend the very same facility with 3 soldiers and send it a random guy who has no idea what he's talking about

    22 - it is completely normal for people to seek soda/beer bottle caps on the entire wasteland for their bottle caps, when around of them is death, destruction, an upcoming war/death/desperation/depression.

    23 - it is completely normal that maybe 1 of 20 guys is interested at all in the times what happened before the war. Yet, almost 99% of the people speak perfect english.

    24 - Some poor kid living in the slums alone with no parental supervision and living with only another orphan girl and his make believe laser pistol has infact the tool that could have ended the conflict before it even started.

    12. Is it because they'd prefer a NUCLEAR WINTER??

    13. YES. this

    14. The one with the nightkin? Just say 'okay' as soon as you can in the confrontation, he gives you a stealth boy for free.

    You are allowed to create a hundred steam accounts if you wish too....
    Buy the game in uk for <20€ and create a new account with it, it will be in enlish, uncut, and all the dlcs if you wish to purchase them will also be uncut and english (unlike that pos, Games for Windows thingy)...

    Well, as a first timer back then, I just naturally asked the price of the "brahmin". That Nightkin caught me by surprise.

    Thank god for the DT stats. When I tried Requiem mod, fighting Reavers and Albinos weren't a nightmare anymore. Instead, it's like a chore. I laughed a lot while slaughtering those Reavers in Point Lookout. Damn zombies.

    18. Rewording jokes get old very fast.

    19. Having a good source of clean, unirradiated water will not motivate anyone in a post apocalyptic wasteland to invade you for it.

    20. Escaped convicts would rather raid a town for the one guy that got away than for their valuables or clean water.

    21. Large mailboxes don't need carriers to move incredible amounts of stuff across the Mojave.

    22. A military encampment right across the road from a town is incapable of doing anything about a bunch of convicts raiding that town.

    23. NCR has Vertibirds, but instead of using that tech to bomb the sh!# out of Caesar's spear chucking monkeys, they just use it to ferry their president. ("Bear" Force One :puke:)
