Also, did you know you can only reverse pickpocket a single live frag into someone? Subsequent frags you add to the person are just being traded in instead of rigged to blow ...

comment What's the easiest way to kill Fawkes?
@thethinman: I'm thinking it is. Which is actually useful knowledge, if you think about it. Can you reverse-pickpocket monsters? (I'm thinking super mutant overlords, ghoul reavers and albino radscorpions.) I never keep explosives around -- but might if I could get away with that instead of wasting my 15,000+ rounds of EC packs on 'em ...

@thethin: It's up there, but I haven't tried it yet, so I haven't marked accepted. I keep hoping other strategies will come up, but I guess most players haven't tried to go full-psycho in F3. :)

I ran through all my starting Stimpacks already. :) Luckily I found a few more ... And I'm getting better at cave rats. Pig rats too. Mole rats and rad scorpions are still whipping me like a school girl. :) Just turned the combat down to "wimpy" to see if it will help.

Clever! (And I never thought to try killing Mysterious Stanger. If you do so, does his body remain for looting purposes?)

@beska: Yep, my attempt to kill him was well after completing the entire main storyline. He may be easier to kill when he's unconditionally following you through Vault 87, but it looked to me like once he got out and starting hanging in Underworld, he became a nigh-invincible killing machine.

@beska: For the record, according to the Wiki, "Contrary to a comment about Fawkes' gender made by his voice actor, lead designer Emil Pagliarulo has confirmed 'No, Fawkes was absolutely a male. This was a mistake. Wes gave an interview and he was mistaken. Trust me, Fawkes is and was male.'" And yes, Fawkes was ludicrously hard to kill. :) I don't even know how many stimpacks I went through, but my hunch is probably 40 or 50. (And I didn't save after doing it; it was just for giggles.)

@Raven: Not that I'm aware of, though I could be wrong. I just double-checked the Wiki -- Fawkes, East Coast Super Mutants and the generic Super Mutants articles -- and didn't see anything that indicated that Fawkes (nor any super mutant) would heal from radiation. I was just launching mini-nukes because of their 4-figure damage count. :)

I should note, I did manage to kill him, but it seemed really odd that he was harder to kill than an army of behemoths. :)

@Raven: Normal. Although now that I'm at level 30, and XP don't matter anymore, I suppose I could turn it down to Very Easy. :)

comment Is there any way to get the original Fallout and Fallout 2 working on a Mac?
Very nice! I fought through WINE using MacPorts, which worked out OK, and then wound up writing a shell script to launch from Finder.
