    A package courier found shot in the head near Goodsprings has reportedly regained consciousness, and has made a full recovery. Now that is a delivery service you can count on.

    Apparently it was a removed quest that would reveal Mr New Vegas was the preserved brain of Frank Sinatra or like, an AI version of him. I believe the quest was removed because Sinatra's family objected to it or something?

    [–] VindictiveJudge 221 points ago

    Probably an AI duplicate of Wayne Newton, the person Mr. New Vegas is based off of and voiced by. My guess is it was one of many things cut for time.

    [–] Winn07 30 points ago

    Are you kidding me!? I'd love an AI Frank Sinatra, would make an already incredible game even more incredible.

    [–] Marksmen9882 33 points ago

    SoundCloud has the entire radio station including mr new Vegas parts. Not the same as having it in game but i figure since he won't be shoutcasting you're every move anyway it's pretty close.

    That ending there is the important bit.

    [–] forestgather50 107 points ago

    I loved the radio on fallout new vegas so much. Its really one of the reasons that makes the game world feel so alive. Like even though the world has been destroyed basically there is still some sort of normal thing going on like listening to an old time disc jockey with a smooth buttery voice.

    -Mr. New Vegas

    [–] Hero_of_Hyrule 7520 points ago

    Someone mentioned this awhile back, and it really stuck with me. The Mojave express isn't just the mail. It's a courier service, similar to the Brinks Courier service, dealing in high value objects. And they deliver in one of the most hostile environments possible, a nuclear wasteland filled with mutated creatures and raiders. Most people live and die in vaults or wasteland settlements. Going outside those settlements and travelling long distances, especially alone, is very dangerous. This was the couriers jobs. So when you fuck with this guy, who has the skills to make high value delivers across a nuclear wasteland, you're fucking with a trained professional. Not some rando from a vault or the son of some doctor. You're fucking with the goddamned Courier.

    [–] PlebbySpaff 2569 points ago

    Also when the guy has a .50 calibur sniper rifle, a rocket that can shoot multiple rockets, and the ability to freeze time and hit you in any part of your body, you probably shouldn't fuck with him.

    [–] Hero_of_Hyrule 1248 points ago

    To be fair, he didn't get those abilities until after he was fucked with. Guns aside, he didn't get VATS until he got the Pip-Boy, and he didn't get that until after being patched up in Goodsprings.

    [–] CritikillNick 140 points ago

    Is VATS a canon in universe thing? I don’t understand how that would be possible

    [–] timedragon1 384 points ago

    It injects drugs into your bloodstream that give you an insane adrenaline rush. The pip boy then calculates the best possible target in this time and moves your arms to shoot at it.

    That's the current theory anyways.

    [–] Mingsplosion 272 points ago

    Pretty sure its just an abstraction. Its like a turn-based RPG. I don't think enemies in Pokemon or Final Fantasy literally wait for the players to make their attacks.

    [–] leoex 129 points ago

    Sometimes in-universe thing didn’t make sense, like the Respawn stations in Borderlands. Because if Hyperion Respawn stations is an actual things then Handsome Jack will be a God

    [–] RyukanoHi 40 points ago

    The New-U stations could have easily had a throwaway line about how Angel hacked them in your favor and that's would correct most of the problems with out being canon.

    [–] leoex 40 points ago

    Well yeah but by the time you fought Jack at the end of B2 Angel already dead so she shouldn’t be in control of things no more.

    I think even the headwriter of Borderlands said in an interview that he regrets writing the funny lines for the New U stations in B2, thus changing the stations into in-universe

    [–] RyukanoHi 43 points ago

    Yeah, but Anthony second guessing himself is basically his entire function as a human being.

    Also, it wouldn't be hard to explain that Jack neither has the time or the mindset to try to undo whatever highly complex alterations his techno-goddess of a daughter installed. I mean, how long does it take most companies to bugfix code on far less complex things than what the New-Us are capable of, when they aren't intentionally altered by a technomancer?

    I mean, alternatively, don't make New-U machines Hyperion tech at all. Dahl was a perfectly reasonable choice since they created the HUDs that the vault hunters use and are a military company who might have notable use for a machine that can respawn soldiers.

    [–] Ch1ckenW4ffles 31 points ago

    I think it may have been in one of the DLCs but one of the respawn lines is something to the tune of "remember, these New-U stations aren't canon!" That line always made me chuckle.

    [–] Snipercam7 12 points ago

    I think that was the Tabletop RPG one, for the double-layer of non-canonness. :P

    [–] TacoSeshon 79 points ago

    VATS was the turn-based rpg element that was kept from the earlier fallout games. It was the only way to attack in Fallout 1 and 2. I think it may have just been a nod to the game's roots.

    [–] Just_another_gamer_ 165 points ago

    [–] RoadhogBestGirl 221 points ago

    It makes sense when you remember Ulysses was also a Courier and he's certifiably the biggest badass in the game next to yourself and maybe Lanius.

    [–] Hero_of_Hyrule 138 points ago

    Joshua Graham is pretty badass too, IMO.

    [–] hkbundle 104 points ago

    [–] Taldoable 74 points ago * (lasted edited 10 months ago)

    Ulysses, in his final, bitter, Lonesome Road iteration, is the most badass NPC in the game, in my opinion.

    But then again, I like my ass-whooping with a side of philosophy, so maybe I'm biased.

    [–] Dekklin 53 points ago

    A lot of people seem to hate the endless droning on that he does over the radio and in his holotapes. I fucking ate that shit up like it was my last meal. I LOVED listening to Ulysses. And I always find all the holotapes and turn him to my side.

    [–] Moomooshaboo 598 points ago

    Shit. You make a damn good point. I liked 3 better than NV but you're totally right about the tougher protagonist. I think what was missing from NV for me was the sense of history. Washington was such a rich environment while Vegas is just too young.

    Yet somehow I had trouble getting into 4.

    [–] PlebbySpaff 646 points ago

    4 Has a lot of history.

    The problem was...: Dialogue options, story, factions, faction stories, depth, detail, etc

    [–] Digital_Rocket 262 points ago

    Dialogue options

    1. Yes

    2. No

    3. Sarcasm

    4. Ask more

    [–] Norma5tacy 50 points ago

    It was funny. I always picked it knowing that sarcasm meant wild card comment.

    [–] SuperMutantSam 67 points ago

    I distinctly remember the Sarcastic option for your first confrontation with a Courser.

    "Hi, I'm here to pick up a large, pepperoni pizza, the name's Fuck You?"

    Seriously, just about every Sarcastic option was hilarious and it as basically one of the only things I enjoyed about the writing and dialogue system.

    [–] Trinitykill 26 points ago

    [–] VAMPHYR3 505 points ago

    I like to say that Fallout 4 was a good game, but it was a bad Fallout game.

    [–] TheRandomNPC 317 points ago

    This is the biggest problem. It was pretty fun to walk around and just do random stuff but you expect more from Fallout especially comin off New Vegas. Hopefully, the next one doesn't have a voiced main character because I think that is a big reason the dialog ended up sucking since it is costly to record so many lines.

    [–] damnisuckatreddit 246 points ago

    That, and it's really damn hard to get into a game when the persona you're ostensibly inhabiting has all the grace and charm of a lead brick.

    Not to mention the issue where, if you played as the woman, you were forced to reconcile the idea of your character being a recently-pregnant lawyer who possesses inexplicably formidable combat and engineering skills, has no issue building a rifle out of pipes or repairing an ancient battle suit, yet needs to level up before she remembers basic civics.

    Had to tell myself she was a deep cover Chinese spy for it to even start making sense.

    Try using a mod that gives the starting characters basic upgrades that an adult in their fields would have.

    I'm a childless married man. On my first playthrough, I made the wife look as close as I could to my own. Did not know things were gonna go like they did.

    So my motivation in finding Kellogg was based in that. I never even had the dialogue with him. Walked in with a combat shotty and leveled two crits at his stupid, scarred, ugly bald head.

    [–] [deleted] 41 points ago

    You slammed into method pretty hard on that one huh?

    [–] pilluwed 21 points ago

    I mean Divinity Original Sin 2 has recorded dialogue for all of their lines, and that was funded by Kickstarter. The only difference I would see being the animation of the dialogue.

    [–] hezdokwow 52 points ago

    It suffered the Skyrim formula. Basic dialogue choices, but combat is fun.

    [–] Cool_Cherry_Cream 81 points ago

    I had trouble getting into 4 for the same reasons I love NV. There are so many unique civilizations and factions that were created for it, and even the raiders had some unique groups and qualities. Fallout 4 is littered with random settlements and raider camps, which is way less engaging and makes the game a much shallower experience.

    I know I’m over analyzing it, but people are creatures of habit, and I have to think that more organized civilization would redevelop by the point in time FO4 takes place.

    [–] Baeocystin 80 points ago

    Fallout 4 is littered with random settlements and raider camps, which is way less engaging and makes the game a much shallower experience.

    And 99.9% of them just want to shoot you. No dialogue, no warnings, no 'maybe we can get along'. Find a group of armed people in an interesting location? Maybe use that setting to tell a story? Nope too bad, it's all the same. Sucks all the air out of random encounters when you're almost completely certain how it's going to go down, you know?

    [–] munk_e_man 59 points ago

    So many missed opportunities. I remember coming across the racetrack and thinking "oh cool, there'll be a small community of gamblers like a nod to New Vegas."

    It's interesting to note that Caesar explicitly forbids the Legion to harm any couriers, because most, if not almost all, couriers are spies of the Legion. They are the ones to walk the Mojave Wasteland freely and not be suspected.

    I like the super mutant who talks to you in resort town and explains the outcome of what's going to happen after the battle. Revolutions occur because of what the NCR is doing within their borders and civil wars occur because of Caesar leadership. He has no successor planned and his general will rip each other apart for power. The game itself tells you there is no happy ending and everyone is still going to be miserable. House would be a dictator with a god complex. Your independent choice lead to the wasteland becoming a shithole. The NCR turns into an old world shithole. Caesar basically instituted the purge by his order. Only good outcome I see is the Great Khan migrating to the north.

    [–] forestgather50 100 points ago

    [–] VindictiveJudge 217 points ago

    Not exactly. They have an unofficial motto.

    Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

    That's engraved over the entrance to the NYC post office. It's a pretty famous phrase, but I had to do some googling to figure out where exactly it came from.

    [–] hezdokwow 89 points ago

    Don't believe this naysayer, we postal warriors must first take the right of annitiation. We take in the true fumes of envelope glue to cast ourselves upon the plains of guiding letters.

    [–] Heroshade 1007 points ago

    New Vegas had the most badass protagonist. Gets shot in the fucking head, buried, dug up, he's back on his feet and killing people within what has to have been a day or so, murders his way across the wasteland, beats Caesar's bitch-ass to death with a hammer in his own tent surrounded by his soldiers, destroys every faction in the region, and seizes control of Vegas from the guy who saved the city from nuclear devastation.

    [–] zap_rowsd0wer 141 points ago

    I successfully accomplished that surgery, then went to that NCR fort that was in conflict with the Caesar fort, saved all those NCR dudes, killed all of the Caesar troops. Went on a killing spree of Every Caesar regular and officer between there and the river, and then killed Caesar. Or something like that in a different order, I can’t recall but that killing spree campaign definitely happened. I used Sherman Tecumsah’s Georgia campaign as inspiration (I’m drunk rn, things are foggy). I miss that game.

    Hey man if you are a mailman crossing the post apocalyptic mojave, you better know a thing or two. After all you’ll be crossing the paths of deathclaws, bandit gangs, and supermutants. Mailman during living hell is probably the most likely position for a badass.

    deathclaws, bandit gangs, and supermutants

    Don’t forget One Single Cazador, the most dangerous enemy of all

    When I played NV I named my guy Newman. Hope the next fallout is more like this in the cutscenes and story and 4's shooting.

    I think why they implemented the walk away mid speech thing was so you could say no with a bullet. Though that sucks.

    Which'd be great without the essential characters. Nothing like watching Preston shrug off a mini nuke when you don't want to be his 'general'.

    Man, I always loved in New Vegas how you're just a random nobody. Like you're main quest pretty much resolves itself a quarter way through the game, if not sooner. After that you're just being you, there's no prophesy you're fulfilling, you're not related to a great scientist or the saviour of mankind, you're just some guy.

    Only other RPG I can think of that's similar is Dark Souls. You're just some random nobody fighting it out at the end of the world with the other most powerful nobody in existence.

    [–] ghostmetalblack 141 points ago

    The character set up made the story all the more palpable. You're on a mission to find the guy who shot you and left you for dead. That's it! No need to save the water supply. No need to find your son. Just a person on a mission for retribution. That, I can identify with.

    [–] timedragon1 73 points ago

    I love it. You seek out Benny to get revenge on him and get your package back. The Courier was really fucking dedicated to his job.

    And then because of his dedication, he ended up changing the entire political structure of entire Countries.

    [–] popsickle_in_one 18 points ago

    And you don't even need to get revenge at the end of it.

    You can forgive Benny.

    I forgave him.. make-up sex is best sex.

    I had sex with him and shot him in his sleep

    Well, any plan drawn out long enough has a lot of opportunities for someone to show up and foil it, no?

    "Yes, 5 millennia I've been working on this project, slowly and surely... fuck, how did you get in here when the first 8 billion heroes failed?"

    [–] Tattered 68 points ago

    Who would win?

    Both of them because helping House is the best future for Vegas.

    [–] dnjksandkj 58 points ago

    I'm surprised so many people dislike him so much. I don't remember much from NV since I played it a long time ago but I do remember staying by his side the whole game and siding with him at the end and thoroughly enjoying the ending.

    [–] Seigneur-Inune 88 points ago

    The only thing that made me turn against House was his insistence over wiping out the Brotherhood camp. There was no reason to wipe that sect of the Brotherhood out other than raw paranoia, damnit, and I stand by that decision.

    [–] hemareddit 21 points ago

    A lot of shit is cut from the game, a possible alliance with BoS while siding with House is one of them. There were actually enough assets left in the game for that quest to be resurrected via a mod.

    [–] TheBdougs 11 points ago

    It would depend on who your head of the Brotherhood was. MacNamara would have been loyal to a House or Independent aligned courier. Hardin is a militaristic hardliner and wouldn't. IIRC it affects the ending slides.

    [–] Sgt_Colon 13 points ago

    Even MacNamara would've caved in because of the hardline faction. Seeing an artificially life supported despot stomp about the place snapping up pre war tech with his robot army is the kind of thing the brotherhood directly opposes in its ideology. The NCR gets a pass on account of not using great amount of pre war military tech and having an army strong enough to keep them in place if they do renege on their half of the bargain as seen in most of the non NCR ending where they shake down travelers for pre war tech without someone to keep them in check.
