So switching back and forth between New Vegas and Skyrim I am swiftly reminded of why the former only has double digits in playtime and while Skyrim has over 300 hours logged in.
It’s all down to preference really but there’s something incredibly glaring about the difference between stealth in NV and Skyrim. Maybe I’m just not playing it correctly.
But as an example I was running down one of the main broken down highways of the wastes and noticed a little red line show up on my compass thing. So I crouched down, moved behind a rock behind where the thing was and saw it was an adult golden gecko.
It was just standing there with it’s back to me so I waited a good 20-25 seconds to see if it moved around, it didn’t. So I started sneaking up behind it to smash its little face in with my lead pipe because I’m a such a lovable and friendly person.
Ten steps away, well out of melee reach, the little fucker does a 180 and attacks me.
I wasn’t running up to him I was sneaking. As in crouching. As in moving slowly and quietly.
This has happened more than once, with sentient enemies and feral ghouls.
Does stealth in NV only reliably work when you have an unending supply of stealthboys?
Now I remember why I console commanded myself up to the tits with weapons and armour and skills up to 9000. There’s just something very awkward about NV’s mechanics to me and I can’t put my finger on it.
Ultimately I get more sucked into fantasy, gods, werewolves, vampires, magic and ancient prophecy and shit as opposed to post-apocalyptic wastelands.
One day we’ll be in a Marvel movie, sitting there as something doesn’t feel right. and as the credits start to roll we’ll know what it is. It will flash up on screen and our hearts will break. “In loving memory of Stan Lee”. There was no cameo in that movie. And there never will be again.
“I found you safe and sound, so I guess I can forgive you running off without me.”
“Oh, you guess do you?”
“I might need more convincing.”
In other news, I don’t know how to draw lace.
I don’t know how to draw a lot of things but I definitely do not know how to draw lace.
Oh well :D
Edit: I suddenly realize their hair should be loose and ruffled but ehehehehehe that’s what I get for rushing through a picture.
