How did he succeed in so many Speech checks if he never earned EXP from killing anything?

Sarcasm2517d ago

Cant you earn XP by unlocking lock picks, computer terminals, etc.?

But yes, I don't see how anyone could go through this game without killing something, especially those annoying flies.

Hideo_Kojima2517d ago

Press the ` key...

Now click on anyone with the mouse type kill and press enter.

How do we know he didn't kill everyone with cheats?

radphil2517d ago

There's a pacifist ending basically in the game. You can get through it without killing anyone. You just have to have patience, and the right skill set.

I'm very impressed that the devs took the time to implement this kind of playthrough. Fallout Vegas overall seems to have much more depth to it than Fallout 3, not that I didnt like F3, I spent almost 90 hours on 1 playthrough and loved every minute of it. Extremely atmospheric.

Reminds me a little bit of the 'little rocket man' achievement for Half Life episode 2. Makes me wonder if the devs play through the game and make tweaks based on these kinds of playthroughs. I love this stuff.

@Perjoss

Yea I liked the depth they took with it. It's a shame though that there's like 2x the bugs/glitches as well, which really kills the mood at times. Had the game crash on me a lot of times >_<

You have to do a lot of grinding to level up without combat, that's for sure. You would have to cancel out of every mission when you weren't at a level to pass the speach challenge.

I'm not as impressed by the zero kills, but more impressed that someone could play this game in the most boring way possible like this.

Solidus187-SCMilk2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

who plays fallout and doesnt shoot things. That does sound pretty boring. I love seeing the body parts fly in VATS or the cinematic deaths.

this must have taken lots of patience. Not to mention all the characters you really want to kill, like Benny.

visualb2517d ago

I made through my first play through with very few kills (well, a lot but NOTHING compared to fallout 3, normal body count)

you just need to sneak a lot, lockpick a lot, and have high speech/barter skills as well as knowing where to go/do

also, he didn't do all the side missions =P considering some require you to kill.

the game was designed to allow these types of play styles... doesn't really surprise me

edit: its ironic that his pacifist take on the game is labeled insanity? by the article. Microcosm? I think so.

djfullshred2517d ago

I think it is labeled insanity because of the extreme tediousness involved in playing that way. I wouldn't read more social commentary into it about killing in general.

soundslike2517d ago

i know...
its dry humor, maybe too dry for n4g it seems

vhero2517d ago

you can use tilde commands to easily do this effect plus he has used 48 stimpacks. That's a lot for somebody who has never been in a fight.

NeoMagus2517d ago

or he could have stepped on a mine or triggered a rigged shotgun he didnt see, damage doesn't come from just being attacked

djfullshred2517d ago

Yeah, and some of those traps are nasty. I have cursed at my TV screen a few times after being stupid enough to walk right into some.

n to the b2517d ago (Edited 2517d ago )

color me impressed. the hardcore-est I'll go is obtaining all achievements.
