    Well, I first arrived in Nipton to the sight of Ceaser's Legion *gasp!* So, as an avid supporter of the NCR, I charged them. I only saw three... The "hidden" legionaries did not approve of my shenanigans.

    My biggest WTF moment would have to be the time I tried to shoot ARCHIMEDES at some bad guys and it didn't fire, I forgot all about it hours later, and upon exiting Lucky 38 a Death Laser randomly blasted me and killed several robots. :o

    My WTF moment was that I stopped seeing foes from Sniper Shack after a certain (not sure which one) update.

    At Camp Forlorn hope, there were a few bloatflies on the outskirts, which the soldiers dealt with. The doctor just up and runs out of the camp and ends up heading west. Then he gets whacked by Cazadores, causing me to fail like 5 quests...asshole

    My latest WTF was Veronica's quest not starting. Haven't had that before. I know all the nine triggers, that I only need three, etc, etc and it just wouldn't start. Dammit!

    Recent WTF whiel playing Old World Blues:

    I arrive at a New Location, Z-14 Pepsinae DNA Splicing Lab, suddenly somethign hits me form behind, I think "Damn Lobotomites" I turn Around and the ugly face fo a Cazador is right in front of me, I was so startled the thign killed me quickly.
    Second WTF: I Returned to the Sink after coming back from a Quest to heal and repair my stuff, then as I Leave and start walking forward I see liek about 5 red ticks appear in my radar and a Bunch of Nightstalkers appear on the distance, evading most of my Brush Gun shots. another death.
    Then while arriving at teh Securitron De-Construction Plant I see two red Ticks to the side, I ready my Paladin Toaster and start approachign the two Securitrons, and I walk face frist into their missile Barrage.

    The grass outside of the Old Mormon Fort was floating about 20 feet in the air.

    I love the Old Mormon Fort. Sometimes when I approach, it's just an empty space and then walls suddenly appear before me like magic!

    So, just a second ago I was screwing aroudn with Mobious' Glove and decided to go into Old Mormon fort after makign the Kings kill every resident of Freeside and then each other.
    Aparently I punched some kids too and they fled to the Mormon Fort, so when I got in, every member of the Followers of the Apocalypse was running after the kids, shooting their weapons at the little immortal kids. It was hilarious

    Even Julie Farkas joins the fun


    Aesop: Mobious' Glove is awesome.
  11. You sir, have won an internet. Never has child abuse been so damn funny.

    got a "wtf" moment today in the Nellis Airforce Base. I was exploring and randomly talking to Boomers I went by. suddenly a bearded man says something to me with a female voice. I turn around and take a second look. turns out it wasn't a man. it was a bearded woman!

    another recent funny moment: some Brotherhood guy in their bunker seemed to have been stuck in some animation. he was walking towards me in the corridor, while doing movements with his hands as if he was pretending to ride a motorcycle. I can't really describe it well and I wish I had a video of it, because it was honestly fucking hilarious. only thing missing was him making motorcycle sounds.

    I finally got around to killing the Boomers. I've always hated them and in this play through I decided to wipe them out. So after killing all the adults I was quite surprised to find that A) the children didn't run away from me and B) when talking to the kids I could still give them toys or pass speech checks and gain Boomers fame. WTF? I killed all your parents and you take toys from me???

    Not a crazy bug or anything, but I got a chuckle out of it:

    Finished return to sender in a new game last night using the option that causes the chief to suicide (I want his ranger sequoia!)

    As I was leaving the office after picking it up, I encountered the first ranger on scene and he said his sad bit about the way it went down. Immediately after this I attempted to talk to him and he responds with the standard "Go see cheif Hanlon for more information about camp golf" line, while standing there 3 feet away from the Chief on the ground who's death he'd just finished talking about.

    Yeah, there are some silly moments like that. Pretty much every NCR officer that gives you a quest acts like it's the first time they've ever seen you after you've finished it.

    While waiting on the 60 seconds it takes for the games to reset at the tops, I ran around power punching the air. Next thing I know the courier's fingers mutate, bend backwards and extend up to his shoulders... wiggling.

    It was a big WTF moment when I first met the Cazadors.. I thought, by the look, that they were nothing more than bigger bloatflies. Oh I was wrong, died in a matter of seconds.

    Now a days I have Arcade Gannon, ED-E and my beloved Anti - Materiel Rifle with me when I meet them, and now they're no problem. Also, im level 31 and first time I met them I was around level 2-3.

    You strayed north from Goodsprings right at the beginning of the game. That was my WTF moment too; Cazadores and my first NV deathclaw. SLASH, dead, reload.

    When I went to Red Rock Canyon to talk to Papa Khan for the mission "For the republic, part 2". I go there, talk to Papa and Regis, accept the mission "Oh My Papa" and everything is fine. But then im just gonna go to the drug making area known as "Red Rock Drug Lab" to get the location on my map.

    I could walk around Great Khans no problem, but when I go in the narrow area just before the drug lab, they start shooting at me. So, ED-E fires back. I get Great Khans infamy, and now everyone gets hostile. I shoot them all, bang boom, the Great Khans are no more, except the few at Quarry Junction.

    I wasn't even trying to get on their bad side.
