Maybe an external harddrive, I am not sure how it would work with steam.

Maybe you can use firewire or USB 3.0

I thought steam needed to validate you every time you run the game...
Ebay works for old games

The only dlc that i truly liked was old world blues. The others were far too liner for my taste.

I enjoyed all the DLC's to be honest, with OWB being my least favored. I enjoy atmosphere and setting over most other qualities and Dead Money and Lonesome Road had atmo and story in spades (though Dead Money should NOT have been handled like a survival horror, they failed big time in that respect but it had decent story and background if you were willing to risk pain or death to find it.) Lonesome Road and Honest Hearts took on a far differing angle of approach style once I modded the Adm. Skele. perk to lengthen possible fall hight by 2 fold (fits with the description of the perk). I was a "Death from Above" mad man once I got it.

You can start steam in offline mode to access your games.

USB3.0 External HDD. Only going to be worth it if your rig has a 3.0 port, though.

Also, for what it's worth, New Vegas and all its content is 75% off on steam right now.

My roommate told me he just picked up a copy of FO:NV off the Steam network for like, $5.00 or $10.00 USD.

Crazy.

Which is better, vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream? They're both very fun games but they play a bit different. I liked NV because the outdoor settings seemed a bit more "open" than the DC ruins seemed in FO3 and the main story line was a bit less linear than FO3. However, they both seemed functionally similar enough to me in terms of technical aspects and game play. I do like the system for building reputations with the various factions and locations that they've got for NV more than the simple system used in FO3. I'd say well worth the bucks.

I think I am digging PN a bit more then Arwen, but Arwen was still awesome.

from experience. i played through the whole game a dozen time with different character

the best weapons you should get is: the trail rifle in 44-70, the ranger revolver in 44-70, the smg in 9mm take the drum mod and the high speed bolt , the gauss rifle, dynamite (easier to find and powerful enough when your explosive skill is high enough), the riot shotgun and the hunting rifle, with all the mod.

is you intend to play it sneaky, the .22 pistol is a must, but the .22 machine gun is useless.

with all that you can pretty much covert every scenario. (a few plasma grenade for the Deathclaw will always be welcome)

Hunting rifle, scoped, extended magazine, custom action. I've tried different approaches, but I always end up with this as my primary weapon.

Also, I hit the frigging Deathclaw with Archimedes... and IT SURVIVED AND KILLED ME!!!! How is that even possible? :gonk:

c4 and bottlecap mines are way more effective than archimede. and at close range, the riot shotgun aiming at the kneecap will cribbed their leg you can outrun them.

Ahh its in mine, must have been a mod I forgot about.

Yeah some of the weapon mods out there are just silly, like that 18k damage rifle you mentioned, I can't imagine that would be fun very long.
