#248 Posted by gamer1991 (7 posts) -

keep your head down... ow that hurt.  mini nukes are a wast of time cuz you have to have the fatman launcher and there are only so many nukes.  It would be worth it if they had unlimited nukes that you could buy but with ounly 250 or what ever its a wast of time...o right I'v also learned never give a follower a fatman cuz if they do on the off chance find a mini nuke you better get the hell away from any bad guys cuz the you know what is about to hit the fan.  the green guy... I cant remember his name... Fawks thats it!  any way where was I?  O right he is the best guy he can take on justabout anything in game and he can pull his own weight and I mean it.  I have given 5 rocket launchers and he could still hold more.  Also you can go off and not have to babysit him.  But the game gets kind of easy with him even on very hard he still like never dies. 
I think I said what I wanted to say. 
Can't wait for New Vegas to come out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
