    Yeah, I know, but my speech is too low and my INT is too high. I consider taking the Bachelor option.
    But I think I'll let the game rest for the week, university is taking up a lot of time and until I get my new CPU and mainboard the performance on my PC is just too shitty. It's no fun if it lags so hard that I can't kill anything outside of VATS.

    Christ, this. Big Iron is at least southwestern, but fuck Johnny Guitar. It's the biggest fucking drag. I was in a hard part once that took a lot of reloads, and I noticed on the fifth reload that Johnny Guitar was on every single time. Switched it to Mojave Radio, heard one of those upbeat guitar tunes, and finished my firefight alive.

    Just visited the airport and.... Airplanes don't have any doors. How do pilots get in them? Do they just teleport inside? It's bugging me.

    Yeah, seriously, it's a good perk given that a big chunk of enemies are male and you get that attack bonus.

    Yeah. And seriously, "Confirmed Bachelor" in NV sounds more like "Homosexual" most of the time.

    I hated those INACCESSIBLE doors. Why couldn't I blast the lock or put a dynamite there?

    And I disliked the impression that you get a huge world map to explore. In reality, 50% of it was unreachable.

    Inaccessible doors is basically either unfinished content or map designer oversight, from what I understood. It's usually, like, a door that leads into a wall or map end or something. Others are unfinished content. And yet others eventually become accessible if you do it right (I've seen one of those thus far).

    Speaking of blasting the lock of using dynamite, though, that's another thing that I missed from NV. No more neglecting lockpick and still being able to get through the occasional door... :cry:

    That's because that's what it means. Confirmed bachelor is slang for homosexual.

    Hmm, curious, never knew that.

    OK, here's one thing that completely pisses me off - how come Brotherhood PA is better than Enclave PA? That makes no sense whatsoever.

    I'm loving it. Outside of the Sims, last time I could play a dude who likes dudes was Fallout 2. Nice to see us fags getting a little representation 8-)

    OK, to add to a list of things that make NO FUCKING SENSE: how come does Slayer perk require 90 Unarmed? What is a Melee-oriented character supposed to do?! This is bullshit.

    I kind of miss that mood system that was present in the original games (i.e. NPCs changed their attitude to the PC when triggered properly. this attitude could be either friendly, neutral or unfriendly). Right now you can't really piss NPCs off and even if you say something offensive you can get back to the previous dialog line and act as if nothing happened*. I miss one-liners too, them funny ways of saying "fuck you" -- in original Fallouts your character had some personality, now they don't (as far as I saw, there are some attempts but it's still too less). The writing in F:NV is pretty good, though.

    * Just 18 hours into the game so I hope it will change by the time I finally get to Vegas.
