Fallout: New Vegas Hardcore mode survival guide

PC Gamer: When you fire up Fallout: New Vegas and create a character, before it lets you out into the world the game will ask you one very simple question: are you a man, or are you a little baby who needs his mommy to save him from the big bad game? More diplomatically put, you’ll be given the option of playing in Hardcore mode.

What’s Hardcore mode, and are you hardcore enough to play it? Don’t jump in blind: read our guide to the five big differences, and tips for how to survive the increased deadliness of the Hardcore Nevada wastes.

The story is too old to be commented.

Playing on hard core is the only right way.

Hardcore mode pretty much means you need to carry food, water and doctors bags with you at all times. It ain't all that hard.

You also need to strip down items to their lowest form, which is usually weightless. You also need to plan ahead for weapons and ammo and don't carry any ammo you're not going to use. You should also be very proficient with repair, medicine, and survival. If you want to use the big hitting weapons, get traits that increase your strength and/or weight capacity.

Not hard, just tedious. Really hate inventory management and having to watch for items weights.

Tedium typically makes things harder. Not necessarily 'hard' for an individual, but not as easy as not having to deal with the tedium.
