There seems to be a game update.
I wonder what it is... I hope it fixes the random freezing while I'm walking.

What should we care to know of what is going on in that great insane asylum called "the world" ?

That will never be fixed... that is just one of the joys of Bethesda's engine.

But, after you kill Benny, you should be given amnesty from NCR and Legion for anything you've done to them.

I continued to kill after that point. :) I really can't help being a psychopath my first go through on games like this, it's just to funny.

Aside from the bugs, is anyone disappointed with New Vegas? I first thought it was just difference between the novelty values of Fallout 3 and New Vegas, but I have to say that New Vegas seems to have a lot less action oriented quests/events. The designs of areas seems uninspired. I haven't finished the game yet, and I do still enjoy playing the game...but seems to have lost a lot of the grandeur of Fallout 3.
The patch didn't do anything, and hopefully they will come out with a better update by next week.

I have a quest item and don't know what it is for. Does anyone know where to use the gbrm2kx memory chip. It won't let me drop it from my inventory saying that it is a quest item. Any help would be nice.

That happened to me. Just hide and kill the lead robot without being seen. You can get a key off of it.

Yep, I'm running into this on the PC version now too. It only happens in the UltraLuxe public bath house from what I can tell, but it's not a normal CTD and only happens after a few seconds of being in there. It just straight freezes for w/e reason and I have to manually end task. I'll try your workaround if I can find the hat.

My game is freezing even more than the original Fallout 3. I love the game, but I cant take much more of this crap.

Actually, there's a simple solution that doesn't require sending him away at all. Simply open his dialogue and tell him to 'wait here' somewhere outside of the camp. He will not follow you to the fort, so once you're done just go back and pick him up.

Thanks Jodou and Chibijosh; I still haven't tried it yet (kinda hoped for another patch by now). I wouldn't say Fallout New Vegas is unplayable...but when your in momentum doing a quest and the game locks...it kinda drives down the motivation (sort of like someone else stepping on the brakes for you).

Also, Jodou you can find...

I got past it because it didn't lock up during the event that takes place there. It's so odd, because it would just randomly freeze while exploring in there, but it wasn't consistent with anything I did. In all my time during the game, it was the only place that would definitely crash if I stayed too long, though.

I'm progressing much slower than what I would like...but that is due to a lack of playing time more than anything else. Only level 5, nearly 6, but trying to do a lot of the side quests and raise my level (although it doesn't look like it). I did have it freeze up on me (hard system freeze) the first 3 times I played it, which ended my sessions.

I've had the game freeze more and had more glitches since the patch went through. I'm sick of it.

Surprisingly I haven't had the game freeze since the patch, and it would usually freeze once every 6 hours.

As of last night, this game has become unplayable. That really sucks because I was really into it.

I'm in the strip, and was able to go through the Tops casino and do everything in there as well as the one with the White Glove people and all those quests. I decided to call it a night (this was 2 nights ago) and save my game. When I went to start it back up last night, it wouldn't load my save game. That little roulette thing on the loading screen just freezes up. It kept doing this over and over until I decided to try to load an auto save. This actually loaded, and it was cool because the game auto saved right before I manually saved a couple nights ago, so no loss. The problem now is as soon as I do something, like talk to somebody or go through a door, it freezes again.

This is sooooooooooooo frustrating!! What good did that patch do? I haven't noticed any difference. I hope there's another coming soon.

Are you indoors or outdoors? If you're out I recommend fast traveling out of that area and see if your problems persists in other areas. If the Strip was the problem area then purchase 'old cowboy hat' from Blake in Crimson Caravan area (wearing the hat helped me... not sure why). I too hope another patch is on its way; I've read the PC got a second patch which fixed nearly all game freezing problems.
