so i've been playing fallout: new vegas again and it's a lot of fun. Yay. The only bad thing is the game runs pretty awful on ps3. The lag and all that was so bad my game could play for about 10 minutes before slowing down to unplayable levels. Unfortunately there's no way to fix it. The save files just get too big and bethesda doesn't care about the ps3.

So I switched to playing my game on PC instead. I actually have a decent computer now and can play the game on the highest settings possible. I also installed a bunch of mods to make the game cooler. One of my favorite ones stripped out the extra color filters and makes the game look more ~realistic~. I am mesmerized by how much nicer it looks.

BUT being me, I always break stuff. My favorite things to do in games is to climb on stuff that the game does not want you to climb on. I don't know why. But, while playing the game, I noticed there was a spot where it looked like I could climb onto the roof of one of the game locations (Camp McCarran). I did *not* use the console commands to shut off clipping to get up here. Kayla watched me do it on stream, it took a few tries, but I managed to scale up the side of the supply warehouse which was connected to the main airport. From there I started to explore...

Obligatory next to the McCarran sign picture.

From there I noticed the monorail was attached to the main terminal building. I wanted to walk on the monorail track to see how much (if any) would let me walk on it before there was no boundaries and I'd fall through it.

It didn't take long before the game slowly started to push my dude through the railing and I landed on the ground outside. This is *technically* outside of Camp McCarran, so it should be the wasteland, but, since I never actually went through the door of Camp McCarran to go into the wasteland nothing out here loaded.

This is a true wasteland. Nothing but the same brown texture for miles. I kept taking pictures because I kept expecting there to be no more floor and for my guy to fall into an empty abyss forever.

Still nothing. For reference, I pulled up my map here to see where I was according to the game. Yeah, I don't see any of that either. :D

Eventually I found this. :D Seems Legit.

The view of the cliff I just jumped off of. This water is irradiated lol.

I kept swimming and swimming until I eventually came to the conclusion that the water literally goes on forever. I pulled up my map again and eventually at some point during this and my character's marker was no longer on the map, and it was just pulled hard to the south. The game also appeared to keep loading blocks of water depending on where I swam. I eventually turned off clipping so I could get above the water and see if I was right.

Looks like I was. :D

I was making jokes on stream that this was my character having a weird dream.

NEXT UP.... i actually used the console to achieve this. I wanted to fill up the entire bathroom in the Novac hotel room with dinosaur toys because I thought it would be funny. I spawned 1600 of them and dropped them one by one in the room. It took a while. I could only drop 200 at a time or else the game would freeze trying to spawn them all in the environment. :D

Getting there.

the view in first person is hilarious.

Eventually I did it, and then I used the game console to let myself out of the hoard.

That's a lot of dinosaurs.

I spent the next 10 minutes or so flapping the door open and shut because it would flip dinosaurs all over the room and I found it hilarious.

Basically I am really easily amused and this is why literally no one but Kayla would ever enjoy watching me stream. LOL.

also bonus
