Why is there such a gap in the gameplay? Sooooooooo much chatter. So much walking. So much time spent "getting to the fun" than the actual fun.

Just got the strip, about 12 hours into the game. :\

I don't see the problem, it is a post apocalyptic setting that takes place in the Mojave desert. There are plenty of enemy spawns and random encounters to make the journey interesting.

The point of the game is to be on an adventure. The game would suck if you could warp yourself anywhere you wanted without visiting it first. Hell I don't even use fast travel when I can.

It took you 12 hours to get to The Strip? What the hell have you been doing?

At this rate it will take you 200 hours to finish the game.

Well, that's about how the game works, far as I've seen.

Ask DV8; He put over 200 hours in and never "Finished" the story/main game.

I've played like, 15 hours and I haven't even really considered straight up going to New Vegas. Hardly done any missions to speak of either; Only just got around to Novac and it's missions, along with the lengthy chain of missions in that missile facility.

and then when you know what your doing you will learn it takes about 20 min to get to the strip


also monster mod and increased wasteland spawns are your friend


although they make that 20 min trip to vegas very exciting...and very deadly


Easily the first thing I do tho on new chars and then I head south from there going to the 188 trading post and Novac and south from novas is two of the best places in the game for getting loot

I got close to Vegas early in the game and got gunned down by dudes with laser rifles while I pretty much had a broken pistol (And the DLC gear, but that doesn't exactly count)...

Maybe you should just stop there and be content with it.

I've never had trouble reaching the strip. Just gotta run on the hills to avoid death.

Without modding, my attempts to run along hills are almost instantly greeted with invisible walls out the arse. They're freaking everywhere in that game.
