Title: Fallout Fingers Posted: December 04, 2008 (04:49 PM)
Resolution admin stuff led to pints down the pub with another of the mag's writers last night, and ultimately to a conversation about Fallout 3 that went a little something like this:
"Y'know, I never found Dogmeat. Where did you pick him up?"
"Right, you know right after that scrap yard explodes?"
"...No, which scrap yard?"
"Erm. Okay. Maybe that didn't happen for you. Okay, you know the section where you collect the fingers?"
"You collect the what?"
"The fingers. For that woman. Did you get the perk that lets you cut bits off dead bodies?"
"...Cut fingers off dead bodies for a woman?"
"Yeah. I thought you had to do that bit..."
So now, of course, it's become absolutely imperative that I play through the game for a third time, just to see if I can A) finally find Dogmeat, and B) find the bit where you cut fingers off dead bodies for a woman.

You can cut ears off, too.

I want to play Fallout 3 now. (Well, I wanted to before, but still <_<)

Fingers... that's just a perk. I don't think it has anything to do with anything.
To note, I haven't gotten dogmeat, either.

It's a skill you can buy at some point in your skill tree. If you don't buy it, you never get to see half that stuff.
