Finally got the 10K melee damage achievement and beat it under House to wrap up the 60/60 for New Vegas. This is my favorite "broken" game of all time. There are so many game-breaking bugs, freezing/clipping issues and strange technical glitches, but taken as a whole, the game is fantastic. There's only four real ways to end the game, but it feels so much more open than that. Great job, developers.
With that said, Dead Money was terrible. Instant fail states have no place in a game like this. Way too many story contrivances. Companions would not shut up. Even the Sierra Madre casino was just a small side show to the dull town you spend most of the time in. Honest Hearts made up for it though. To find the Burning Man still alive was really cool. (Though I wish he would of had a bigger reaction when I told him I personally killed Caesar.) I cared about the characters and the open space to explore was much better than Dead Money's narrow town.
Overall? Totally worth every penny, bugs and all.
Can't wait for the Big Empty!
