I like the idea of a robot ally,but two problems:
1. The parts are very hard to find in "Notrium", by that I mean to say by the time I find all the parts,I could have gone in the escape pod,called in the dropship(or whatever it's called), or goten killed.In other words,if I tried to find all these parts,I would need to go through all the areas,fight a million aliens, especialy reapers,and by the time I get all the parts, my health will be clinging on 1 from death's clutches. I HOPE THE ROBOT IS WORTH IT!!!
2. ...(read above)... So I think that I should just give the hermit a radio and assemble his broken pistol, so I could have a helper.
So I conclude that I want a friendly helper,they should make a small turret that can move around and defend me. It should consist of a pistol,a battery,two metal rods and some kind of engine. That way I could make an mini-army of robots at a somewhat fair price.
