...until we’re just a collection of old fogies ranting about how games were better before...

What do you mean, until? Look behind you. ;)

(Me too, for that matter.)

Good Christ. How does this license continue to exist when we still haven't had a sequel to Toxic Crusaders?

Thanks duders. There it is.

I didn't realise that Talk was A) a submenu and B) where all the other commands are. Christ.

You can also tell companions to use certain weapons. It's T on pc when you're in their inventory.

It's fussy, like in Skyrim, which I use a mod to control my companions precisely. Even with ammo and more powerful weapons my Piper prefers a handgun. She also doesn't require ammo for the handgun but perhaps as Bane says that's her using a gimped stock. I don't see it in her inventory?

@blommer4: Ranting was just for funsies. The point of the question succeeded perfectly fine. It's reasonable to think that the method for undoing something would be similar to the method for doing it. But no.

Also last time I checked we're no longer in the era of instruction manuals coming with games, and fuck but this game needs one. A strategy guide doesn't substitute for explaining game mechanics and menus.

Level 18. I just added my 7th CHR point, which was the first SPECIAL boost. I did it to see if my Femshep can flirt with Piper and it didn't work. :(

Generally I save my point until I need it to actually do something immediately in front of me, like the next level of lock, hack, or modding. I would like to have about 6 more points to spend on perks right now.

I also tried the mod to detach the level requirement from perk upgrades, but it triggers an immediate crash to desktop.

@strathy: Hmm, it affects far less than prior games, but still influences thievery.

I will never wear a helmet because these glasses I foundstripped off a scientist corpse which I further mutilated in Vault 111 are too cool.

I agree!

Thanks duders. There it is.

I didn't realise that Talk was A) a submenu and B) where all the other non-talking commands are (but with talking). Good one Howard.

I'm having trouble deciding what irks me more....

  • I can't tell my follower to exit or repair their armor (I can only strip it off them and repair it on a new frame)
  • My follower's armor gets damaged 5 times faster than mine BECAUSE THEY'RE BUMRUSHING IDIOTS

Who was the genius at Beth who decided that not only should there be no contextual way to get someone out of power armor, but you also can't send your companions home without finding a new companion to recruit? Thankfully they exit the frame before doing that.

Am I really missing something? Followers can enter a frame without it having a fusion core. Is that a sploit or is it affecting durability?

Also Jesus Piper, just use the damn Minigun when you're holding it.

Thanks for the advice in general. Nothing news to me, sadly. I'm not a rookie, it's just a plain shitty theme build for that one fight.

I'll fetch Havel's set and try it so that I'm not paper thin, but if they range rush me I'm probably fucked.

Edit: In Bishop we trust. I lucked out and had no grab attacks and no sniping. It still took a while but survived uninterrupted. Thanks for the push Savage, I wasn't bothering with detours for stuff like the Havel set.

Dear Giant Bomb community,

I have specced myself into a shitty build for killing the 4 Kings, and because I want this toon to be a Darkwraith that is pretty much my next step.

Greatly appreciate some PC co-op help in the Level 75 summon range. Typically online during USTZ but can accommodate other times for reliable help.
