You enjoy making sentences dont you? And to do with the original q, its just something you have to get used to, or you could risk downloading the patches that come out.. If you hadnt noticed already though most of have problems soooo.. enjoy :)

I've got a very unusual problem with Fallout; New Vegas.....SOMEHOW I'VE LOST MY DAMN COMPANIONS!!!.....I "had" both "Veronica" and "ED-E" at on point, then all the sudden "Veronica" is absolutely GONE!!!. She's vanished without a trace. I wasted 5hrs searching for her and she's not in the game PERIOD. This isn't the only problem I've had. "ED-E" vanishes constantly and appears at random. "ED-E" randomly attacks/ kills people for no damn reason. I'm assuming "ED-E" is a "Enclave" machine since he refuses to hold "Brotherhood" power armor for some reason or another. This isn't the first game I've owned/been stupid enough to purchase, by "Bethesda". It's still the same excuses for the same half-***ed garbage. As many have said, "Either put up with it or don't buy the game". Maybe more people, including myself, should select the latter of the two since for  $60 or more the quality of this game barely acceptable. I'm thinking regardless of any complaints, we're all going to see the same results every time. They'll continue to put out half-a**ed games, people will continue to shell out too much money for an inferior quality game and the cycle will repeat it's self for eternity. Honestly, I hope they REALLY FIX THIS GAME...because I'd like to finish it before never buying another "Bethesda" game again. "P.S." never said that I didn't like the hours I've put into the game. I just don't appreciate 3/4 of the hours I've invested into the game consisting of me reseting, seaching for companions who vanish and never come back. Watching companions attack/kill, at random. ETC. Even though I know this will do nothing to change things, I still feel better for venting. lol.

you can use your PSN log in details you know, no need to rage behind an alt account.


more game info over random raging waffle would be helpful.

Are you on hardcore mode? if so they could be dead.

have you been to Lucky 38? They could be waiting in the presidential suite for you.

Theres known bugs with ED-E attacking NCR members, mainly at McCarran.


After a certain time (2 - 5 days ingame time) you should get messages pop up that ed-e has returned to primm and Veronica has returned to 188 trading post.
hopefully.

As before thsi isn;t bethesda but obsidian so they are to blame this tiem round but the bugs are actually caused by the outdated game engine being used, regardless fo this, if your comapnions dissapear you can fidn them again either by simply fast travelling to a llocation or if this fails go to vault 22 and take the lift to the second level where you will find the companions again. EDE will nto carry any faction clothing regardless fo whose it is so thsi isn;t a bug its simply the way it is as a robot it cznnot wear any factionclothing and can only store clothign that is not affiliated with any faction, if you give clothing to other members you will notice similar issues, they will either wear the clothing if it has a higher d r or will refuse to waer it due to the faction it is affiliated with. As for the EDE being attacked, this is something which shoudl be addressed in furture updates but it apepars that if you have food items on either e.de or rex then npcs will sometimes see this as any other creature in the game and will attack to obtain the food, although will only do so until unconscious and if you fast travel away eded will be back to normal fully workign again, and it doesn;t affect your status with any faction as long as you don;t attack them back

Off topic... (only slightly)

 

Obsidian also made Alpha Protocol and that is as buggy as every as well...  (It didn't inspire me with confidence when I heard they were on the dev team for FO: NV)

I tend to agree with this. But I think the same was true of Fallout 3 somewhat. (G.O.A.T. exam etc) Thinking about a bug-less version of NV would definitely be one of the best games of its genre for a long long time. However, when I was recently asked about it the only word that instantly came to mind was "buggy" (as in riddled with bugs, obviously).

 

It is the only game I own that will repeatedly - although not constantly - cause the console to crash, and the number of times I've had to reload due to conversation trigger not being pulled, or something else similar is almost unacceptable.

 

The saving grace is the combination of graphic quality; innovative ideas; and a deep and engrossing storyline. Particularly the latter, for me personally - which I'm still working through.

 

Will I play this game again, when I've finished the first playthrough? In theory, New Vegas is designed to be played through again and again; in practice, I'm reluctant to consider it yet - I am very confident Bethesda\Obsidian\whoever will get their rear-ends into gear and patch much of this up in time (especially now the Xbox Download Content must be finished...but that's a different point entirely...); until I see a few more patches I think I'll prefer thinking fondly of this title on m'shelf rather than having it disrupt my PS3 console...

To get your companions back just go to Vault 22 and take the elevator all the way down to the bottom, your companions will be there waiting if you've lost them.

Let's face it, Oblivion IV, Fallout 3, and Fallout New Vegas are just poor ports of PC / XBox titles; the graphics are sub-standard for PS3, there are frequent frame-rate problems which the PS3 is easily capable of avoiding if people just bother to program it correctly, the ONLY saving grace these games have (with the exception of Oblivion, I do rather like the rolling countryside in that) is the RPG element and story line. I find the small details in Fallout 3 to be very repetitive, often make little sense (why would there still be some fancy lad cakes in a locker after all this time?), and apart from there being lots to do it is ultimately quite a linear game - once a quest is complete that's it, that part of the game world has little or nothing more to offer, and it looks like every other part of the game world so there's no reason to go back to it. At least in Oblivion it looked pretty and had some distinctive zones, Fallout 3 is just depressing from start to finish. So then there's the bugs on top of that. I found Shivering Isles to be a very buggy affair (perhaps the QA guy left after the main game had been built and they had to get the janitor to fill in? Vanilla Oblivion certainly appears to be the least buggy game Bethesda have released on the PS3), I played it through once then sold the GOTY edition and stuck with the vanilla version instead. It's just a pity Fallout New Vegas is so damned buggy from the start, I can't do the same as I did with Oblivion GOTY. I notice Fallout New Vegas is now available for £17.99, but I'm still not tempted. Is there any price at which all of the frustration and anger becomes acceptable? I don't need that when I'm trying to relax after a hard day at the office, and if the depressing world of Fallout 3 is anything to go by then New Vegas won't be bringing many smiles to my face, I'd rather get my kicks killing real people in BF1943!

Only played NV for 2 hours (on my way to Primm ) and it froze :|

In exactly the same what Fallout 3 does, kind of confused how they are allowed to get away with this not only freezes but the ingame lag

I have been playing for just over 30 hours and I think I am lvl 20, so far (touch wood) no biggies with this game, occasional stuttering of the graphics when I walk into Camp McCarran and one freeze requiring a reset. I am just hoping that as my gamesave file increases in size that more problems don't come to light, I remember having a 10mb save file on Fallout 3 towards the end of the DLC and it became almost unplayable. :(

to be honest, i think this is one of the glitchiest games ever... thing with sitting in the air makes me laugh, but wow, i played for like an hour without saving (yeah yeah i know, just forgot) and it froze one me during entering save option, i'm thinking ok, reset, gonna try one more time, thought 'hell, it just froze on me so probably i'm going to play for at least one hour without any glitches (yeah right;)' and it froze on me after 30minutes (without save)... don't get me wrong, i love it (like most of the fallout games) but... but... i'm starting to think it's just to much:(

 

How did New Vegas went through Quality Assurance? come on, how is it possible? anyone?

To be honest I ploughed through 3 of the 4 main story paths, but I just cannot be bothered to try the final path, let alone the DLC due to the amount of glitching and bugging that went on.

I am so disapointed with this game, constantly freezing and messing up. I haven't played it for months =/

Frankly I would take the game back for a refund, it's clearly not fit for purpose.

 

If a major bug fix or patched version is released in the future then you could purchase it again.

  I have been a Fallout fan since it started in 1997. Started on PC then went to ps2 with Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

   When Fallout 3 came out I bought it for my "fat" 80 gb ps3. I had major frame rate drops and many many many total console freeze ups. I really thought FO3 was going to break my ps3. The only way around the freeze ups was to make many saves...game for 10 minutes then save. For some of the game I remember walking around looking at the ground, especially outside, trying not to have the frame rate drop. I also had to shun my friends, turned off announcements, because of the flaw causing the game to freeze and the screen to blur when friends signed in and out of PSN. When the dlc was available I bought all 5. I even bought the GOTY version thinking that it would have answered the flawed original, sadly it didn't.

I trudged through just to get the platinum trophy.

    I now have a 320 GB slim. I was very hesitant to buy FONV, but I did anyway :Stupid: . The first few hours were very enjoyable. Then the frame rate drops and freeze ups started. So back to game save, game save, game save etc. Once again the thoughts of a broken ps3 flashed through my mind.I even bought the dlcs. :Stupid:  I stopped playing for 4 months due to the freeze up and frame rate drops. :Frown:

   This laggy game is worse than FO3. The many updates have not helped the freezing and frame rate drops. I don't care if a gun has the correct stats or if a script was wrong, the main issue is the very old game engine.  

   Someone on another site suggested we complain to Sony since they are the ones selling the dlcs, but it's not Sony's fault. It's Bethesda/Obsidians fault. They need to just take blame for their faulty game and FIX IT!
