    • Well, Nazi Germany believed in racial supremacy and that certain races are inferior. This would be pretty impractical in the American wasteland and Caesar himself probably lacks much German blood. The Legion would allow just about anyone to join it. Plus, the Enclave already ape the National Socialists so it would feel derivative.

    • The Romans achieved what Hitler wanted without the racial autism that Hitler exposed. Also in the wasteland that is America in fallout racial purity is probably the last thing on anyone’s mind.

    I like location and shooting tons of lobotomites and robots. But damn that opening chore

    • The opening werent exactly their fault, they had do exposition dump because someone somewhere on the higher up told them to do it.

    • The writing is mostly fine when you understand what it’s referencing but starting off with half an hour of Think Tank dialogue is off-putting.

    • I was thinking about what my favorite DLC was, and when I was thinking about Old World Blues, I realized it just as much a chore as Dead Money.
      there’s no "good part", I don’t like a single quest in either of then. Both of them have tedious enemies, Old World Blues has the damage sponges that blow up in your face and have the audacity to spawn 20 ft in front of you out of thin air

        Jokes on you but on one of my runs game forgot to spawn enemies outside. Only scripted ones appeared. Greatness of gamebryo shines bright.

      • I’m on a replay too and have finally decided that I hate Dead Money

        Whatever, I’ve done it over a dozen times now, and it’s just not good

          So you got bored of it after a dozen playthroughs? Seems like a (You) problem

  2. >there’s people out there that still believe the Legion only use melee weapons because "technology bad" even though most of them probably antagonize them as soon as Nipton which means they spend the entire game fighting off death squads armed with rifles
    I will never get how so many people that supposedly love a game and have been playing it for a decade can get such basic facts wrong

    Bethesda fallouts are dumb. Like why people still living among ruins and junk and not trying to rebuild anything. its been two fucking CENTURIES

  4. Could The Legion still be a thing after Edward? I always like to imagine the canon ending of New Vegas is either a Yes-Man or Mr. House route, but Ceaser stays alive. He dies, but the Legion lives on, albeit in a balkanized state. I think that would be cool, because we can see different interpenetrations and evolutions of the ideology of The Legion. Perhaps one Legion group would be more okay with using tech, or maybe one other could be "friendlier", and I don’t mean they would be "more good", but just more inclined to diplomacy and intrigue.

    • Yes. Anyone who thinks it will die with Caesar doesn’t understand how the actual Rome worked and doesn’t understand the scale of the Legion described in-game. It will fracture and balkanize but it’s unironically going to result in some high-tier civilizations, all of which would probably outlive the NCR.

  5. The Enclave bug power armor will forever be my favorite but Caesar’s Legion has some pretty good visual design. If you can’t appreciate this you are a pleb.

  6. It’s surprising how good it looks. It’s not perfect but it could’ve looked so shit, my confirmation bias might be talking but it feels like armor design has gone to shit with time

  7. I like their uniform. And if you think about it skirts are pretty practical and also very unique and distinctive. 9/10, could’ve had cooler helmets
