    Well, yesterday, turning in the last quest in Veronicas BoS quest chain, everyone inside the bunker decided to follow me. They actually ran after me all the way to the Elder, with their weapons raised at me. As Veronicas dialog with the Elder started , everyone just dispersed and went back.
    Kept me a little on edge. :wink:

    This one happened to me yesterday, I couldn't take any pics because it resulted in a CTD.

    I was going through Big Mountain, I went into the construction site and of course I got attacked by the robots there, I switched to Third Person to do the Melee attacks outside of VATS and I noticed that my body had just dissappear, this had happened to me before, it usualy solves itself moments later.... but this time, it was different.
    As I attacked the robots (I switched to first person) I decided to finish the last one off with a Vats attack, I choose the special melee one, and then... My body appears on screen... but not on the same place I was, it was on the ground a couple meters away, whenever I attacked my body lifted it's arm... I killed the robot without even be able to tell. I inmediately rushed bach to the place my Body appeared during VATS, but it wasn't there, I decided to walk a little more, waiting for my body to reappear, and I got attacked by Cyberdogs, they shot their usual Sonic boom, but the attack didn't move, it was frozen in place, but everything else was moving, I moved up to kill one of the doggies, and CTD.

    Extracorporeal experience? Maybe the COILS OF NIKOLA TELSA that the Think Tank put in my brain were malfunctioning... or Working too damned well. Maybe my character was just tripping hard on the wine, combined with buffout and Healing Poultice I made her eat?

    Victor died on me today. I was north of the 188, sniping some bighorners when he rolled up with his "Look me up when you get to Vegas" bit. He rolled into a heard of 10 or so, got knocked down, got up, went up and down a couple more times and when the dust settled, Victor was dead.

    I know his "death" doesn't mean anything but it was hilarious seeing him battered around. Always nice to have something "new" happen even after several plays.

    I tried the "EnablePlayercontrol" console Command during the Ending Slides, I wanted to see ROn the Narrator and then a single question came to my mind...

    Why the hell is Ron The Narrator Fully Lip synched? I mean, he doesn't need to be Lip Synched because we never see him, and yet there he was, moving his lips as he spoke about House's Securitron Army ending the chaos on the strip.

    oh boy here we go.

    Im at a low level and its night. I think I was trying to get to Novac or something, So I decide, hey lets wait an hour til its sunlight again. I wait, next thing you know I got like 4 Nightstalkers on my ass. I book it and run into a legion camp, they take care of the Nightstalkers and then turn on me, I did kill Vulpes Inculta tho.

    I see a swarm of Young Cazadors, So i figure "hey their weak, lets hit em with my Oh Baby!" next thing you know, Im poisoned. Even worse I go into a shack thinking I have an antivenom or that I will find a stim or some food. Nope, my autoload is just me dying.

    First time I played I tried to cross Red Rock Canyon when I saw Cazadors. First I was like ''Oh look, big Boatflies'' and took up the fight. Yeah I shouldn't have done that.

    *EDIT: Forgot, that was the second time I played it. First time I played it was Christmas Eve, where I had just gotten the game. And there was actually a WTF moment. Me being used to Fallout 3 just took the best armour I could find, which was a Powder Ganger outfit. But since I knew nothing of faction because I accidentally skipped the message (silly me) I just continued towards Primm, where a NCR Trooper started to attack. I thought that, that was a little weird.

    During my first playthrough I killed a randomly spawned NCR soldier near Nipton due to his gun being better than mine. I became vilified, and when that happens after a few in-game days NCR Rangers try to "persuade" you into not being such an asshole. Well, they tried, but they were all killed by Bloatflies before getting to me. I love script errors in this game. :lol:
    Also, the Securitron protecting The Strip failed to initiate dialogue with me and just kept shooting at me when I tried to enter. I ended up having to sneak my way through, weird since after that I could initiate dialogue just fine with them.
    I also tried to kill BoS soldiers believing them to be parallel with their Capital Wasteland Counterparts (Weak).
    I didn't fair too well. :(

    Recently I was goign through OWB, everythign was going like normal, I got the 3 pieces of Klein's clothign to complete the challenge, I got the glasses in the Think Tank and I equipped everything, then I clicked the mosue button and the Glove circumbented the pacification field, I was in the middle of the main quest, so I wasn't meant to be able to draw my weapons in the Think Tank, I then proceeded to kill the doctors, all my weapons were drawable, I got out of there and I got the ending as if I had left my brain and spoken to Mobious. Has anyone reported this? si it just my game? maybe a mod is making Dr. Klein's glove do something weird scripting wise? Can someone else test it?

    Not so much WTF as FML.. but on my last playthrough, I had done the Siare Madre. .. after gulping down all my buffout (dont't know how much) I maneged to get to the exit with a fucktone of gold and other goodys. Well as I am leaving .. the game totaly froze up meaning I had to reset the xbox... and it crashed after the gates atosave when I reloaded it the crash happened again.. my last hard save was miles back. But. As the thread is "WTFs".. The first time I saw a gecko runing at me "WTF is THAT?" is pretty much what I said. And the obvious one we will all have had.. Victor and thinking "why do you keep folowing me?.. Fark orrf!"

    My method is usually to lure Elijah out and kill him before he can get the shields up again.

    Not really a 'WTF' moment but more a moment when the AI of the NPCs goes stupid.

    I was in Vault 3, doing the drug runner quest, and I had Rose and Rexx in my team.
    At some point one of the Fiends asked Rexx if he had any Jet.

    "Does he honestly expect the dog to talk back?" was my first thought.

    Well, that's a perfectly reasonable behaviour for a drug addict, I'd say. :P

    The first time I saw ghoul ravager in the outsirts of Primm (north of Nevada Patrol Station) I thought: "Heh, some weak ass skinny ghoul, my varmint rifle with .223 ammo should take care of him fast".
    So i took my sweet time, took aim and started shooting. Nothing. "WTF, why am I missing all the shots, my aim is perfect!"
    Then I saw that I indeed hit him but his DR/DT negated all damage.
    The damn mofo was fast as a hell hound, suddenly it was in my face: *hand swipe* *half my HP gone* at that moment I turned around
    and SPRINTED towards Primm like it was Vault 69.

    Decided to snipe the scorpions at the nest north of Goodspring on my latest playtrought.. 4 Scorpions = 4-5 shoots! "shoot first one and 1 hit kills it".. Where did the rest go?.. Wait every scorpion is dead?! Oo

    Must have been a hidden nuke in my 308 shot.

    I've been playing this game since it's inception, so I have quite the experiences to share:
    1: Having multiple Radscorpions embedding themselves in the ground in a straight line to my right. Very scary, all the little eyes staring at you... and then they start to thrash about.
    2: Having a Radscorpion's mesh glitch after I have killed it. Damn, the way it swelled up out of the ground.
    3: Watching Waking Cloud attempt to swim through solid rock.
    4: Watching about 10 citizens of Freeside, with 3 Securitrons as backup, dismember a thug armed with a straight razor.

    And many, many more...

    I slaughtered all three casinos for fun, not doing any quest.

    But since then NCR troopers started to tackle me saying they can't gamble as they want because of me, and finally one of them attacked me, during defending myself i killed good number of them.

    Gahhhh..! i was building good reputation from NCR so far! my reputation went down suddenly, i had to change all my strategy... then i quit and restarted whole game...

    Damn drunk gamble addicted NCRs....

    Speaking of the drunks, once I was on the Strip, taking in the sights, when suddenly, I am pushed in the back. I turn around, ecxpecting one of my companions, but it's a lumbering drunk NCR trooper. Who promptly vomits over my longcoat.

    Those mutie flying bast*rds in the mountains, the cazadors are absolutely insane...even for the Enclave. ;)

    That was about the biggest change in difficulty I saw in the game. When the one quarry worker warned me about the deathclaws up ahead at the checkpoint (before I engaged him of course), I listened and took the quest route to the town of Primm.
