The Dark Lord3's Gamercard
Lonesome Road, is it good?

Right now I'm on a difficult decission. I don't have much money to buy videogames (cause it's al saved up for Skyrim, Halo and Saints Row), but I want to buy something in the meantime (because I've ran bored of Gears of War 3).
I'd like to buy Tropico 3, because I love RTS, and I was a huge fan of Tropico 2. I have played the demo and I did enjoy it a lot!
But as I am a huge fan of RTS, I love RPGs, and I like a lot all The Elder Scrolls and Fallouts I've played. So, I don't know to buy 2.000 points to get the next DLC for Gears of War and buy Lonesome Road, the last DLC I need to complete my Fallout: NV experience, or buy Tropico 3 through Xbox LIVE Marketplace. The cost of it is almost the same of the 2.000 MP.

Any suggestions or feedback?

Tropico 3 is a complete Xbox 360 game, which will give me more hours (and more gamerscore) of fun than this DLC, but I accept any suggestions!

I personally hated Tropico 3, but If you enjoy it, it may be the better choice for you.

I am enjoying Lonesome Road, but New Vegas as a whole is starting to feel outdated to me. Try playing New Vegas for a while before you decide... It may feel outdated to you too, and help you with your decision.

Or, instead of downloading tropico 3, you could try looking for it in a store. It's selling pretty cheap if you can find it.

if you have done all of the other dlc and what to finish it out then I would get lonesome road... if you haven't played the other ones I would get Tropico 3 because you will get more hours out of it...

Apart from the unique weapons, I thought it was a very linear and dull dlc pack. Only Old World Blues impressed me, and that was the best dlc I have ever played on any game. Shame that NV dlc was pretty lame overall. Well, that's my opinion.

While I didn't think Lonesome Road was a great DLC it did close out the game and answered a lot of questions I had about courier 6 aka Ulysses. Overall I was happy with it and would recomend getting it... but only when on sale/discounted.

I haven't done much in the DLC except the beggining part but I really liked going to the Canyon Wreckage and seeing the signs but it seems to be promising

I enjoyed it with Old World Blues. Looting a military base is always fun!

I'd buy Lonesome Road, from what I heard It was great but I had already sold FO:NV at that time so I never experienced it.

Yeah it is a decent DLC, challenging in parts and definitely some decent XP and cumulative damage to go towards those main game achievements.

If you like FO:NV then I would definitely say get it....leave Dead (oh my god what did you do!) Money alone though!!

not even close to being as hard/sucked more than dead money... this DLC is good and worth 800 points. Don't let this tool fool you

Yeah I agree. I finished it yesterday and thought it was a flashback to Fallout 3. New Vegas in general isn't as good as F:3 but this DLC was a good reminder of what could have been.

Dead money is the only one I have left to do now. I've been working through the Complete Edition this week.

If you use Ed-E as a follower (and why wouldn't you?) there are 5 additional upgrades for him to be found throughout the DLC.

And after you get them all, he'll be a floating orb of destruction. Seriously.
