Most of the time it costs about as much as a movie ticket, and 9 times out of 10 you'll get more entertainment hours out of DLC content than you would with a 2 hour movie. I don't see anyone lambasting the existence of movie theaters. Of course I have a job, and I also realize that just because a company offers something doesn't mean I have to buy it.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, you need a change in perspective if this outrages you.
I agree 100% with the original post. New Vegas is incredible, I don't understand the negative reactions to it. I save often with multiple slots, so even the occasional bug ends up being funny instead of soul crushing.
Cass is my favorite of the companions I've used (Boone, Veronica, Lilly, Cass).
Her Whiskey Rose perk is amazing. You ignore the effects of alcohol withdrawal, and drinking whiskey specifically provides an added boost to...some combat stat that I am forgetting right now. Before I met Cass, I hadn't touched a drop of liquor in Fallout. She corrupted me and I love it.
It's also fun to have your own whiskey in real life and take a sip every time Cass says "I need a drink."
