Fallout New Vegas DLC

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have completed the game and I have a save just before doing the last mission. Do I install the DLC before the last mission or do it after? Does it then continue from where I left off or is it a completely new area?

Also, which is the best (in your opinion and why) DLC to get first?

Dead Money is preeetty awesome but its really drab, dreary and depressing, much like the pit. Its a lot of fun though and the story is interesting.

I haven't got round to Honest Hearts yet, i'll hopefully start playing through tomorrow >.<

If i were you i'd get Old World Blues, i read a blurb about it and it sounds pretty awesome.

You install the DLC before the last mission, the DLC doesn't extend the original story, like Broken Steel for Fallout 3 did, which is disappointing.

I downloaded it before I beat the game, and I suggest old world blues because you get great new weapons and it is probably the only place never to get hit by nukes, also it has a great story line. I also believe it extends your level cap by 5.

You will need to play any DLC before the end of the actual game since none of them have changed the inability to play after it happens.

Each DLC adds 5 to the level cap (plus 5 from one of the patches) so total should be 50 now.

I bought Old World Blues and it was an excellent DLC. There is lots to see and do. There is great silly humor and winks at other things.

I then bought the first two and Dead Money was OK (the contrived way they bring you into the story is just lazy storytelling to me). Honest hearts seems great so far, but I think I am only half way through it.

Once you install any DLC, you'll usually a get a quest prompt in the free-roam area to go to a remote area of the map. From there, should you choose to accept, will take you out of the free-roam and lock you into a DLC-only area and you stay there until you complete the DLC.

for me old world blues feels like an extension of the main game(which is good), while the 1st 2 dlc's felt like something totally separate. i didnt enjoy them much.

I've just started Dead Money and I am liking it more than Honest Hearts already. Honest Hearts was boring to me, being a new explorable environment couldn't save it for me. It was just an empty environment with really nothing interesting to see.

I just did Honest Hearts then. That absolutely sucked. The environment was super boring, there really was no interesting sub-plots, and the ending bugged making me unable to "Crush The White Legs"!

Do not waste your ~8usd :/

Would you guys agree Old World Blues is the best DLC out atm? I'm thinking of picking up one of the pieces of DLC soon.
