At least one person really has done this challenge and posted it on the YouTubes, and that person goes by Many A True Nerd. You can find their excellent Fallout: New Vegas No Kill Run playlist here
, and I recommend the channel as a whole.
While this storyline is inspired by that no kill run, it is not based on it. This is the story of Grace trying the “no kill” challenge for herself, and she’s not motivated by finding new and challenging ways to play an old favorite game. She’ll be playing it for the first time, and she wants to be a peaceful peace bringer of goody two shoe goodness!
She’ll also be giving me an opportunity to parody, poke fun at, comment on, and review the game, but Grace isn’t motivated by that (selfish squirrel).
Speaking of reviewing, Fallout: New Vegas, developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks, is one of my favorite games, and really is quite good.
It’s also notoriously buggy and prone to crashing, particularly on consoles. My understanding is that it’s most crash-prone on PS3, a bit less crash-prone on Xbox 360, and least crash-prone on PC. I’m pretty far in my latest (and definitely not pacifist) play through on the PC version, and I consider it only having crashed twice so far worthy of celebration.
I have a lot to say about New Vegas, but I’m also going to do a lot of comics parodying it, so I’ll have plenty of opportunities to get specific. The fact that a pacifist “no kill” run is even possible, however, is among the many reasons I’m fond of it.
