So, Episode 5 went up today. And I started to record a bit, but Danzig started attacking me again. I did get one video done, but I think I'm done for the night, since he's being a butt. I don't think it's a great episode, I flubbed the intro a little bit, and then with the Danzig attack...it could have gone better. I wish he would stop doing that, but it seems to be only when I'm doing something that I can't pause. It's like he knows. Damn cat. Also, I thought of one more weird thing that has happened in this run a couple times now that I hadn't seen before. Twice now, when I've killed someone with Veneration, they've turned into an ash pile. I have no idea why. If you've been watching, you know that Veneration is a 10mm pistol. Why they would turn into an ash pile, I don't know. At least the second one kinda makes sense, because he was wielding a plasma pistol, but I mean, I wasn't. Very weird.
Besides that, the only real thing that's gone on today was that I went to the grocery. That's a lovely little look into my life, I suppose. I get to go and get my meds tomorrow. More fun times for me. Maybe they'll actually give me all of it this month instead of shorting me on one of them. I don't know why, but every couple of months I have some problem or another with them. I don't know if they just suck, or they hate their jobs, or what, but they are not a great pharmacy. Of course, the only reason I go there is because that's where my medication insurance is for. Kinda sucks, but there's not much I can do about it. It was the cheapest insurance I could get. I suppose you get what you pay for, though.
That's all the excitement of my day, and part of tomorrow wrapped up in a nice tortilla for you. I don't know what the rest of tomorrow will hold. Maybe some more recording. I tend to do it at night so there's less interruptions, but then I have Danzig prowling around, waiting to attack. Maybe if I do it while he's doing his evening sleepathon, I can get through a couple videos. I will have to see.
I assume it's because of the number of mods that I have shoved into FNV, but I've noticed a few weird things playing it. We've only run into one of them so far in the Ovepowered run, but I expect to run into the others as well, and maybe even more. The first one, the one you've seen already, that the VATS screen is all messed up. I have no idea why that is, I wouldn't think that any of the mods touch the VATS screen. Something, however, has caused it to go all weird. It's not really a big problem, because I rarely ever use VATS. I used it a lot more in Fallout 3 when I played on the PS3, but on the PC, not so much. I used it mainly because it's a little harder to control your aim with a controller than it is with the mouse and keyboard. I know there are other benefits, too, like the reduced damage, and there are several VATS related perks, but I really don't need any of that. I will continue to use it once in awhile, because of the interesting camera angles, and killcams, but it's certainly not something that I will rely on at any given point.
The second weird thing that I've noticed, it that unique weapons will end up in strange places. I don't know if it's a mod that's trying to move them around, or it's just some messed up loot table, or something like that. I know that the base game uniques are still in their original locations, though, as well. As an example, I was dinking around on my previous character the other day. Not really doing anything, just wandering around some, and I had picked up the unique minigun, the CZ57 Avenger, in its normal spot in The Devil's Throat some time ago, and had it on my wall in Lombard Station. But then, as I was wandering around, I found another Avenger inside a Metal Box that was laying in a pile of junk. I don't know why, but it was in there. I was pretty sure that I had already had that, and went back to double check, and sure enough, it was there. I also remember finding the La Longue Carabine in a Nuka-Cola vending machine once before. Which I suppose is better than having to kill Corporal Sterling, I think it is, for it, if you're friendly with the NCR. I mean, sure you can probably get a Sneak kill on him and not take a reputation hit, but details.
The third thing that I have noticed is that for some odd reason, when the Legion starts sending out hit squads after me, usually only one of them will be hostile, and the rest will just kinda stand around being neutral to me. I find that really odd, since I'm obviously not on good terms with the Legion at that point, and it's not like I could walk into Cottonwood Cove or into the Fort and have some of them neutral. They all act hostile, like they're supposed to. It's just a thing with the hit squads. It doesn't really change anything, because I usually kill them anyways, but it's really odd. I suppose maybe if I knew more about how they were spawned, that might answer that, but I don't.
Those are the only three things that I've noticed that are weird, but there's no saying that there won't be other things that we find along the way in the Overpowered run. I almost look forward to finding more funkiness, because that keeps things interesting. Oh yes, I guess there is one more thing that I noticed in this run that I haven't seen before, and that's Police Pistols dropping outside of Dead Money. I don't think that's been in the videos that I've released yet, but it happens, and I even use one for a bit, when I get low on 10mm ammo. So, I guess that's four weird things that I've come across with my install.
At least none of this is game breaking, and we haven't had a crash yet, which is good. I do expect that to happen at some point, though. I mean, it IS New Vegas after all, and it's nothing if not buggy. Hehe.
That's a question I struggle with sometime. Right now, in regards to my lack of a lot of game playing. I keep thinking about playing something, but at the same time, I have ideas for my YouTube channel, and I don't want to get ahead of myself. I suppose that sounds kinda silly, but that's what goes through my head. There's always some weird roadblock to me just sitting down and playing something. Not that I've been playing nothing lately, just not a whole lot. I need to work on that. And I don't want to get too involved in something, to the point where I actually forget to record Fallout: New Vegas episodes, though I don't know that anything could really make me forget about doing that. Mainly because I love playing that game so much.
As you can probably guess, I didn't do much game playing again today. Just a bit of Clicker Heroes. I'm sure that just like usual, there will be no Diablo 2 tonight. I'm still annoyed by that, but I suppose I shouldn't be at this point. It's certainly not like I generally get my way anyways, so having to play games by myself should be something I'm used to. Oh well.
Not much else has gone on today. And the neighbors have been quiet, so I'm thinking that maybe the second phone call to the office worked. I can hope. It was truly getting ridiculous.
Episode for of Overpowered And Loving it went up today, which is exciting, at least for me. Now if only I could get some views. Of course, I say that about this site, too. I need to buckle down and learn how to promote myself better on the web. Of course, I need to find ways of doing that that don't involve spending money. I'm sure there are plenty of them, I just have to buckle down and learn. Maybe I'll work on that this weekend, along with doing some recording and doing my final push to finally stop smoking. I have a feeling it's going to be a hard weekend, but it will be worth it. I'm sure of it.
Tomorrow will be interesting, I suppose. I get to go to the grocery tomorrow and pick up a few things. I was hoping that I could pick up my meds tomorrow, so that I could do everything at once, but for some reason, the computer told me that it wouldn't be ready until Friday, which is bothersome, since I planned to be inside for the next several days after tomorrow, but now I have to go out an extra time. Blah.
Anyways, I think that's all I have for now, time to go sit in front of my desktop and ponder all the gaming icons on it. Not to mention all my console games. And 3DS games. You'd think I could at least break out the 3DS sometimes while I watching wrestling or something like that. Maybe I will at some point, I have quite a few games that I haven't played yet on that. (Because of course I do.)
So, I had to call the office about the neighbors again. I don't know what the fuck they're doing over there, but it seems like they live to beat on the wall. At one point, it sounded like they were punching the wall like a boxer would hit a speedbag. That was the point that I decided to call the office again. It seems to me that it got worse after I called last time, but I guess we will see what happens this time. I'm about to go over there myself, and if I do that NO ONE will be happy.
In gaming news, no Diablo 2 still. Auren's still too busy with Clicker Heroes. I even mentioned that tonight after he logged on, and of course, pretty much right after that he fired up CH. Sooo...I guess we're done with that, too? Besides that, though, I played Coin Crypt for a little bit. I hadn't played it before today, though I've had it installed for quite some time. I thought about it because it's been updated a few times in the past several days. So, I finally decided to try it out. I quite like it, though I'm not all that good at it. I suppose that may change in time, and I made a few wrong clicks, because my brain is dumb. But I still like it. Heh.
Not much else to talk about right now. At least, I can't think of much anything. Except for the constant wall beatings, it's been a pretty quiet evening.
Okay, that's not true. Well, not completely. Anyways, I recorded some more of FNV: Overpowered And Loving It today. That was some good times. I'm tempted to record more, but I don't know how far ahead I want to get. Also, Episode 3 went out today, which is pleasing. What is not so pleasing, is that I'm not getting any views. At least, not yet, I'm not. I need to work on that somehow.
Besides that, it's been a pretty light day today. The neighbors haven't been to bad today, so maybe my second call did the trick? I'm not sure. I can hope.
Really, not much has gone on besides the recording. Well, there is the usual stressing about money, and how I can get more. Maybe I just need to be more patient, I don't know. I know I have a little more spending to curtail, but not a whole lot. If I could finally wean myself all the way of cigs, that would help. Of course, that makes my stress go up even more. Which I guess makes sense. On the bright side, it's July now, so I only have four months to go. Of course, that means only four more months to come up with more cash. My mom says that it will all work out, but personally, I'm not so sure. I suppose I've always been a pessimist, though. But life made me that way.
Anyways, I'm off to stress, and maybe find a game to play.
Well, I'm not sure about that. I do know that it's Monday, and that the second episode of FNV: Overpowered And Loving It was posted earlier today. YouTube's processing has been a pain, and I haven't been able to pick a graphic from the video file for the video image, so I used the same one I used yesterday. It didn't work right then, either, so I just made a screenshot of the main menu screen and used that. Also, because I left in the cutscene that plays right at the beginning of the game, the first video was flagged for copyrighted content, which is annoying. I mean, I wasn't really planning on monetizing the video anyways, but to have it be monitized and go to someone else sucks. I suppose I should have thought of that earlier, but I didn't. I suppose I could take the cutscene out, but I wanted to show it off. My mistake, I suppose. I'll probably just leave it the way it is, just know that if there are ads in that video, I didn't do it.
Not much else in other news right now. The day is too young for that, really. I did do some more recording last night, and I haven't decided yet if I want to do any tonight. I kinda do, because I want to have a decent buffer of videos, but I'm not sure how big the buffer should be. I suppose that's something that I'll have to figure out on my own.
On the bright side, it seems that the truck is okay now. The battery seems to be doing fine, and I don't think there's a problem with the alternator. Of course, that could change, I suppose.
That's all I have for now, but I could be back later. You never know.
