Title: Fallout: New Vegas

Namco Bandai to spread Fallout: New Vegas across Australia, Europe

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/01/fallloutvegasbmp-1292010-580px.jpg)

Holy wow, there's actually some news about Obsidian / Bethesda's Fallout: New Vegas. We hadn't seen hide nor hair of the game since its announcement (http://www.joystiq.com/2009/04/20/fallout-new-vegas-coming-to-consoles-next-year/) in April of last year and ... well, we still haven't. No, dear Readers, today's news is merely that the game will be distributed in many locales outside of the US by Namco Bandai.

Specifically, the Japan-headquartered giant will be putting New Vegas into the hands of gamers in Australia, Austria, Benelux, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Rivet City. (We made that last one up.) For its part, Bethesda mostly talked up the partnership, but added that, "Fallout: New Vegas builds upon the immersive gaming experience that made Fallout 3 the 2008 Game of the Year." Yes, please!

Bethesda has announced that Fallout: New Vegas is due in Autumn 2010.
To celebrate the release date announcement, Bethesda also unveiled the first ever trailer for the next chapter in the Fallout series.

"Fallout: New Vegas, the follow-up to Fallout 3 - the 2008 Game of the Year - brings this beloved franchise to a location only Fallout could do justice: Vegas. Fallout: New Vegas takes all the action, humor, and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of this legendary series, and raises the stakes," reads the official blurb.

I've just got re-addicted to it and love wandering around. I think I've nearly found everywhere and not actually done the main quest.

The trailer looks a little cartoony and smooth though....could be interesting. Was that Ron Pearlman's dulcet tones as well??

First screens from Fallout: New Vegas surface, feature glorious beards

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/03/gamfovegas580.jpg)

Around these parts, we're all avid supporters of a thick, lustrous beard. Though our tastes for the gaming industries various genres differ greatly, we can all get behind any game so long as it includes characters with copious amounts of facial hair. For this reason alone, a recent batch of screenshots has placed Fallout: New Vegas firmly on our list of most anticipated games of 2010.

You can check out images depicting New Vegas' unprecedentedly hirsute ensemble below. There's also a Super Mutant with heart-rimmed glasses and a doo-wop weave, and man, we've got to find out what that's all about.

Impressions: Fallout New Vegas

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/04/fnvmain1.jpg)

Are we really ready for more Fallout? No mere expansion pack, Fallout: New Vegas is equal in size and scope to Fallout 3 and will require a significant time investment to fully explore. Bethesda has brought in Obsidian to develop the title, and the studio is adding a lot of content (more than double the number of weapons in Fallout 3, for example) and necessary tweaks to the Fallout foundation.

Set three years after Fallout 3, New Vegas stars a mysterious stranger, though not a vault-dweller, who recovers from a bullet to the head and ventures forth to figure out the identity of the shooter. Of course, this journey of discovery is just as much about meting out that particular brand of Fallout justice.

Shot in the head and left buried in the sand, you're initially being rescued by a television robot named Victory, who has a creepy, grinning, cartoon image of a cowboy for a head and a body that looks like it came from the same transistor pool as Robby the Robot. Victory drags you to safety in the rickety town of Goodsprings, where the wise and friendly Doc Mitchell patches you up. After the Doc asks you your name (you choose it yourself), he hands you an electro-mirror called a "Reflectron" and asks you if he got everything put back in the right place. This is where you customize your age, appearance, and ... sex. Apparently that bullet really worked you over good.

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/05/vit-o-matic.jpg)

Following a rudimentary game controls tutorial, the Doc has you squeeze a vigor tester "Vit-O-Matic" (modeled after one of those old-fashioned strength-testing novelty games), which allows you to choose your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attributes (Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck). The process replaces the "You're SPECIAL!" book from Fallout 3. Finally, the good Doc subjects you to a series of short personalty tests, which include some Rorschach inkblots and your response to certain statements or words. The Doc says "mother," and you say "human shield," for example. These answers tag your character with certain skills, the last piece of the character-building puzzle.

After you've completed the introductory setup, the Doc hands you a Pip-Boy navigational device and his old Vault-Tec jumpsuit, and you're ready to tackle the outside world. Your first objective is to locate Sunny Smiles, who the Doc says can help you get started on your mission, and you're released into the town of Goodsprings on the edge of the Mohave Wasteland, based on the real-life ghost town of the same name.

Actually, before setting out, you have one last decision to make: to play in Hardcore mode or not. In this mode, you have to keep track of your food and water, pay attention to the weight of items (including ammunition), so you don't get overloaded, and make time for regular visits to a doctor, because stimpacks will not fully heal you. Hardcore mode can be disabled at any time, but it can't be switched back on. If you complete the entire game in Hardcore mode, you'll receive some sort of "special reward."

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/05/goodsprings.jpg)

Sunny is hanging out at the Prospector Saloon, and she asks you to come along and hunt Geckos with her to protect the local water supply. You can follow her if you choose, and she'll present you with a mini-quest that teaches you how to sneak and shoot. You're armed with a varmint rifle -- a very fast and accurate .22 that is perfect for picking off rodents. After you get a knack for shooting, you can stay with Sunny or head off and wander around on your own.

In my hands-off preview, the developer briefly toured the town for the group of press watching, passing by the Goodsprings school house (modeled on the actual building in town), which doubles as a "mini dungeon" that players can explore. He also moseyed on by some "Big Horners," mutated bighorn sheep that look like bison with gigantic horns. There are a few penned up in town, but apparently you'll also encounter them in the wild where they can knock you on your ass.

Our guide headed back to the saloon and triggered a conversation between the bartender Trudy and the local muscle, Joe Cobb, who is looking for a guy named Ringo. Ringo happens to be hiding in the back of the saloon, and his discovery embroils you in the central conflict in Goodsprings: the Powder Gangers.

In the drive-through preview, the developers took the player around town to assemble a few allies -- Sunny signs on, a local prospector donates some dynamite, and a shop owner agrees to help by selling some weapon mods. A short-range scope and extended magazines for a 9mm pistol made combat look a bit more attractive than in Fallout 3. Lead developer Josh Sawyer has spent a "ton of time" customizing the weapons and ammo: some are better against limbs, some are poor against heads, etc. These tweaks discourage the old habit of switching into the VATS targeting mode and queuing up a headshot every time.

Once ready, the developer took on the Powder Gangers, a bunch of local thugs, and dispatched several using the standard "shooter" gameplay -- but what really came in handy were the new VATS-based melee weapons. In this mode, every melee weapon has a special move; in the demo, it was "Fore!" with a 9-iron. It seemed very handy for separating heads from necks in slow-motion. I should mention here that while the Killcam views of Fallout 3 return in New Vegas, you can now customize them to be in first-person or third-person, or you can turn them off entirely. (After watching the 300th head pop off, it kinda loses its effect, you know?)

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/05/fore2.jpg)

After taking care of the Gangers, your reputation in Goodsprings improves. (The "Karma" system doesn't play as big of a role in New Vegas as it does in Fallout 3, but you can still monitor your rep on your Pip-Boy.) Next stop: Primm, which features a huge roller coaster as part of a decrepit casino called Bison Steve's. You can actually walk along the roller coaster's tracks, climbing up to a point that gives you a great view of the town -- especially if you want to snipe bandits or lob grenades.

After blowing up a few bandits with a grenade launcher from atop the roller coaster tracks, the demo pilot headed into the town of Novac (named after a very old neon sign reading NO VACancy) where the locals make money by salvaging equipment from a defunct rocket base nearby. There's a large, artificial dinosaur here, named Dinky, that serves as the town's gift shop where you can buy items. You can also venture up inside Dinky's mouth and peer out over the horizon, a la Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

There's a large pre-War solar energy plant nearby called Helios One, and you can activate a quest to help get it back online ... or go off on your own and activate a massive, focused laser called Archimedes II. It's hard to resist frying people like ants with this thing, although it won't do much for your good reputation.

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/05/awesomedeathraymueller.jpg)

The rest of my demo featured an optional area called Black Mountain, which was teeming with super mutants (that were just begging to be laser-blasted). Besides the roving bands of raiders and Powder Gangers, there are two main factions at play in New Vegas: the New California Republic and Caesar's Legion. In broad terms, the NCR are the good guys, while Caesar's Legion serves as the bad guys (they enslave innocent people, after all). The NCR is headquartered in McCarran Airport inside Vegas, while Casesar's Legion controls most of the area east of the Col. It's this conflict that will present many of your quests, although there are multiple optional areas for you to explore and play through. It's also during these quests that you'll pick up your companions.

One of the most significant new gameplay mechanics in Fallout: New Vegas comes in the form of the companion wheel, which is designed for easy access to Companion Commands, including access to companion inventories and behavioral orders. If you want your companions to attack everything in sight, you can set them to be aggro. Or, on the flip side, you can have them be very docile.

From what I saw, this new radial menu system is a very easy to navigate and is much neater and quicker to access than the companion system in Fallout 3. In fact, the companions themselves will talk to you now and tell you if you've done something stupid, like arming a gun expert with a melee weapon. Companions also offer benefits to you in the form of perks, so you'll want to choose carefully when picking a buddy to go exploring with you.

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/04/falloutnvmain3.jpg)

The developers urged that this demo was only a minute sliver of the world of Fallout: New Vegas, and the preview never actually ventured into Vegas proper. Perhaps not surprisingly then, no gambling gameplay was shown, despite it being a substantial part of the overall game. There also wasn't any music in the game build I saw, because the company is still working on the licensing, but the developers assured me that the tracks would be a combination of the late 1950s vibe from Fallout 3 and country western music from the same era. Obsidian is also utilizing a lot of history from Fallout 1 and 2 in this game, although you won't have to know those games to enjoy this one. The new elements, like the Grenade Machine Gun (just as it sounds), offer plenty to engage first-time Fallout  explorers.

My biggest concern about Fallout: New Vegas is its undeniable resemblance to Fallout 3. It utilizes the same game engine as the 2008 franchise revival and the technology is most certainly aging. New Vegas looks exactly the same as Fallout 3, and at times you might forget you're playing the "new" game. Sure, the tweaks and multitude of new weapons are welcome additions, but they were entirely necessary to keep fans interested in this franchise -- and perhaps Obsidian hasn't gone far enough with the changes. There are no vehicles in New Vegas (and apparently no fast travel system at all), and players are still going to spend a lot of time inside Pip-Boy menus and the VATS system. Still, if you're yearning for more "Fallout 3," New Vegas is shaping up to be a fun, familiar journey back to your favorite post-nuke world.

Fallout: New Vegas gets Collector's Edition
Poker chips, playing cards and more

Bethesda has announced that it's releasing a special Collector's Edition alongside regular versions this autumn. In line with the RPG's new setting, there's a distinct gambling theme to the contents.

# Seven "Lucky 7" poker chips, each one representing one of the major casinos along the main strip and around the Mojave dunes.

# A themed deck of playing cards, featuring lots of character art from the game. There's also a rule-set for a game called 'Caravan', one that also features in Fallout New Vegas itself.

# A "Lucky 38" chip, made to look like the platinum coated quest item found in the game.

# The hardback graphic novel "All Roads" which acts as a prequel to the game. It's written by some of the folks at Dark Horse comics.

# A making of DVD with stacks of behind the scenes footage and new interviews from Obsidian and Bethesda.

From this first press shot, the packaging looks a lot bigger than the goodies inside, but it still looks a cut above the usual plastic figurines. We look forward to when the inevitable unboxing videos come out on YouTube.

Matthew Perry in Fallout
Could you BE more excited?

Matthew Perry, who played sarcastic funny man Chandler Bing in sitcom Friends, The Guild actress Felicia Day and Chuck's Zachary Levi have lent their voices to Obsidian's sci-fi RPG Fallout: New Vegas, according to the USA Today.

They join Danny Trejo (From Dusk Till Dawn), Kris Kristofferson (The Blade Trilogy), Rene Auberjonois (Boston Legal, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation), John Doman (Mystic River, The Wire) and William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption) in an all-star cast.

Zachary Levi plays Arcade (in the gallery below), a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse who hides a mysterious past.

He's described as "quiet, analytical, and cautious. Highly ethical and moral, he understands the post-apocalyptic world is one in which sometimes, people just have to be shot in the head.

"He is more concerned with large-scale issues than the needs of individuals. He may appreciate what individual people go through, but firmly believes that it's more important to affect large-scale societal change than to fix problems little by little."

Perry plays Benny (also in the gallery below), the head of the Geckos family. "A smooth-talking criminal but also a bit of a weasel, Benny may sound dangerous, but isn't that tough. Ultimately he's more of a ruthless pragmatist than a villain."

Felicia Day plays companion character Veronica, a sarcastic Brotherhood of Steel scribe.

Danny Trejo plays playable companion Raul the Ghoul, a mechanic and former gunslinger.

Ron "Hellboy" Perlman reprises his role as the narrator, according to The USA Today.

Wayne "Mr. Las Vegas" Newton is also on the cast, but we've never heard of him, so left him till last. Newton plays Mr. New Vegas, a programmed radio DJ.

Fallout: New Vegas is due out on 22nd October in the UK for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Three of the cast are from Firefly (Fillion, Baldwin and Tudyk) and one of them voices Drake from the Uncharted games (Nolan North), can't go wrong with that talent.

Brutal Legend is pretty impressive too, Jack Black obviously, Tim Curry, Kyle Gass, Lemmy from Motorhead, Ozzy Osbourne and the woman that does Female Shepherd in the Mass Effect games amongst a massive CV of video game work.  :)

I was mighty impressed with the brutal legend voice work, Especially Ozzy. The game on the whole was great too, just a shame the side missions were so repetitive. Looking forward to new vegas as well, but i won't be getting it until i am finally done with fallout 3, so maybe next year some time.

How Ellen DeGeneres got Matthew Perry his role in Fallout: New Vegas

(http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2010/08/ellenmperry52.jpg)

Who should ex-Friends star Matthew Perry thank for landing his latest job, a role in Fallout: New Vegas? Not his agent. According to senior producer Jason Bergman, Perry's role was cemented thanks to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. On the April 24, 2009 show, Perry appeared not only to promote 17 Again, but he also gave Ellen an Xbox 360 system with a copy of the game.

"I played this video game so often that I injured my hand so severely that I had to go to a hand doctor and get injections in my hand because I love this video game so much," Perry told Ellen at the time. "The game is called Fallout 3. I'm not affiliated with this game at all, I just love it. But I signed it, so it looks like I created it."

Apparently, that act earned him the good graces of Bethesda and Obsidian, leading to his eventual casting as Rat Pack-esque character Benny. With his name now cemented in the game's credits, he'll able to give away signed copies of New Vegas ... and actually have it mean something.

Cybernetic nanobot injections to give him superhuman reflexes.  Awesome.

Fallout: New Vegas' producer has told Destructoid that it will feature a definitive end that can't be stretched out with DLC.
Fallout 3 was criticised for its ending, which was weak in comparison to the rest of the game and eventually needed the Broken Steel DLC to flesh the ending out to a satisfactory level.

That won't be the case with Fallout: New Vegas, says senior producer Jason Bergman, as all the endings will be tied up come the end of the game.

"We tell the full story of every one of your companions through the end of their lives, and it's weird to do all that and then jump back and say, "Okay! Now you can keep going again."," he explains. "So we end the game, and if you want to do other quests, then you go back to that save game before the end sequence."

Sounds good to us. Fallout: New Vegas is due for release on October 22nd.

Crazy Fallout: New Vegas Bugs To Be Addressed In Upcoming Patch

To be fair, the glitch in the video below was captured from the PC version of Fallout: New Vegas, but nevertheless Bethesda is releasing a patch to address any outstanding bugs and glitches currently found in the game across every format.

"We are currently working on releasing patches/updates as quickly as possible for Fallout: New Vegas, for all platforms," Bethesda PR Manager Pete Hines told IGN. "Announcements regarding the patches are forthcoming."

Check out the video showing Doc Mitchell acting possessed with a rotating head and a body stuck in a strange hunch as he floats around. Be warned. It might give you nightmares.

wow. so yet another game has been released with a load of bugs and glitches with the intent of just patching it at a later date, it's getting ridiculous now. Fifa 10, Fifa 11, F1 2010, Fallout New Vegas, Gears 2, i could go on but the list is endless. Those without an internet connection for their 360's are stuck with bug ridden games because devs and studio's put unfinished, sometimes broken games out on the market and expect everyone to just wait for a fix. F1 2010 was the first 360 game i have ever pre ordered but after my experience with that i will never do it again, people now have to wait a couple of months so the games they buy are actually as they should be in the first place or just put up with tons of bugs. No point complaining though it's only gonna get worse, just a shame that it's come to this.

Gears 2 wasn't too bad glitch wise on release, sucky multiplayer and awful matchmaking was the big problem, at least the single player was fine.  The glitches were soon found though and still get exploited 2 years on despite 6 title updates.  Not seen the FIFA 10 bugs yet but i've only just started manager mode so no doubt i'll experience them soon.

In hardcore mode you have to make sure you drink plenty and go to the toilet and eat and get plenty of sleep. To me that is the realism these sort of games have been missing for years, and when i finally get new vegas i will definitely be playing hardcore mode!

The packs weren't detailed, but the publisher said they'll launch simultaneously on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and that it'll have info to share about them "soon".

The announcement of three new DLC packs doesn't come as a surprise. If recent trademark filings are anything to go on, they'll be called 'Honest Hearts', 'Lonesome Road' and 'Old World Blues'.

Bethesda also said that the first Fallout: New Vegas add-on pack, Dead Money, will hit PS3 and PC (via Steam and Direct 2 Drive) on Tuesday, February 22. Dead Money released for Xbox 360 in December.

I could possibly be swayed into getting the DLC. The mods are really lending the game replayability so far, so I wouldn't mind playing some new official content. How about a companion that I don't want to constantly crack in the face for their stupidity?

New Patch now available.

http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Xporc/New_Vegas_latest_patch_now_on_Xbox_360



Meanwhile, the PS3 patch is not available in Europe yet, and the PC patch is not available for the 1C/Cenega edition either.


EDIT: It seems the Xbox 360 patch is suffering from the same problem as the PS3 one - after updating, add-ons such as Dead Money or the Classic Pack may stop working, making you lose all your DLC-related loot or to be teleported to Goodsprings if you were at the Sierra Madre. This is caused by the main master file - FalloutNV.esm - being loaded after the master files for any installed add-ons. PC players can fix this issue by altering the load order of the master files, either through the use of tools like the Fallout Mod Manager or by editing ini files directly. For Console users, it seems the you have to reinstall your DLCs (or just try to reinstall them, according to Occam's Razor - " You will still get the message about the DLC missing but load up your save as your normally do and it should start with all your DLC intact. Reinstalling was the first thing I did but I ever went past the missing DLC message to see if the game still worked until now").

I've placed this game on the shelf for a while now, saving started to glitch a bit for me and decided I'd cut my losses until the issue gets fixed. I may give it a spin sometime in the near future. Priorities right now fall on Mass Effect 2 :)

Most glitches,lag,freezes all seem fine now for the most part oh and loading times.Anything new seems to be connected to the preorder dlc items going to goodsprings instead of the trunk before entering for ''Dead Money''.So all good it seems. ;D

Beast Mode suckaz!!  Actually, it's just a slow Tuesday and been catching up on what's goin' out there...   O0

Back on topic though, this just served as another reminder that I need to get back into Fallout New Vegas. Dead Money's already sitting on the hard drive whistlin' a tune while it waits.

Time to go back in again! just got 'old world blues' and 'honest hearts' , couldn't wait for the delayed 'lonesome road'. Is it me or is it just harder to get back into New Vegas than other Fallouts? Dragging my heels on this one but hopefully the funky 'old world blues' will bring me back in.

Have they managed to patch all of the serious bugs/glitches?

Everything seems ok for me, i finished Old war blues last week and await the last DLC at the end of this month. I really enjoyed New Vegas, but when i first got it, i couldnt believe how glitchy it was, you know all of a sudden the BoS suddenly try to shoot me on sight, problem with save files, i think New Vegas has had abt 3 updates or so
Title: Re: Fallout: New Vegas
Post by: nCogNeato on August 22, 2011, 08:06:51 PM
Good to know.  I look forward to picking up the GOTY edition (http://www.vg247.com/2011/04/18/fallout-new-vegas-game-of-the-year-edition-spied-on-amazon/) when it comes out.

Well last time I played the core game it seemed ok, but low and behold I load up and test out Honest and Blues and I get some lag and a crazy freeze on Blues. Been kinda lucky with that aspect since the original release so I guess Im due a few. I have noticed though that the mysterious stranger gives me problems on occasion as well. I know that the serious has always had bugs/glitches and it's almost part of the tradition, but it does kill the enjoyment. Here's hoping for a non freeze run through later on.

Did you kill the mini deathclaw in Old world blues Slippy? wild wasteland trait and he's in higgs village.

Oh and classic glitch moment from months ago, just outside ''Jean's Sky Diving'' got attacked by the two powder gangers there, so I jump onto a group of rocks as a shortcut and ended up in the rock!!! I could still kill them and move around but only inside the rock! worse thing was I couldn't get out of the glitch via fast travel because there was something else nearby!!
Made me grin though! :)

That Mini Deathclaw in Higgs village..... i had to unload on him with the Gatling Laser. just go full on then retreat to the fountain, then go back again. Ive been lucky since the updates ive had no glitches
Title: Re: Fallout: New Vegas
Post by: Windedprism on August 23, 2011, 07:27:30 AM
lol yeah I read about the fountain retreat, his little legs can't follow you!!

Gatling laser ,check> legs check> run and scream> check!!

The lobomites looked cool before It froze on me.

Those buggers can be annoying, they have the govt 45 and rifles and some carry shishkebabs and saturnite fists, which i had so much fun with. If you upgrade your appliances first in the sink they can help out with food, health and upgrades, if i knew that i would have done that quest first!!

Is it me or is it just harder to get back into New Vegas than other Fallouts?

According to Xbox.com I haven't played this since 12/23/2010 - so yeah I'm on the road towards jumping back in, eventually.

And you're right, I remember not being able to put Fallout 3 down for weeks on end, New Vegas, for some reason doesn't have that same effect. I blame the glitches...oh, and Borderlands.  ;)

Deep into Blues now, very sweet indeed. Just took out ''Stripe'', funny lil bugger. Went from level 23 going in, to 29 very fast. ''My Robo-Scorpions!!! don't, stop stop, you'll damage the hull!!''  gotta love Mobius :)

NEW DLC DATED

Quote from: Lonesome Road
In Lonesome Road you are contacted by the original Courier Six, a man by the name of Ulysses who refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of Fallout: New Vegas. Ulysses promises the answer as to why he didn’t take the job, but only if you make one last journey into the hurricane-swept canyons of the Divide, a landscape torn apart by earthquakes and violent storms. It's up to you whether you take the job or not.

Quote from: Other DLC
Courier’s Stash gives players immediate access to four content bundles previously available only through pre-ordering Fallout: New Vegas. The Caravan Pack, Classic Pack, Mercenary Pack and Tribal Pack each offer unique weapons, apparel and aid advantages that will help you throughout your journey.

"Lonesome Road" is due to be released on September 20th and will cost 800 MSP.

"Courier's Stash" and "Gun Runner's Arsenal" are both due to release on September 27th. "Courier's Stash" will cost 160 MSP, whereas "Gun Runner's Arsenal" will cost 320 MSP.

Very nice, considering the Ultimate Edition retails for roughly the same price as the DLC alone.  Needless to say I'll be picking this up.  If the DLC comes on a disc, we can start up a new sharechain and mail it out to everyone.   :)

Thats a cool thing alright, Fallout 3 was on disc but New Vegas might be all on one disc. The main game is 4.1 gig? and then biggest dlc is 800mb. Can't find any info as of yet. But I'd say they will follow the 2 disc formula. I don't regret buying the dlc at all, even though I haven't gone through it all yet!!

I haven't gone through it at all and am about 25% through the main campaign. Bought the collector's edition so don't think I'll be grabbing this, but another case to be made for not buying games 'day-one'.  ???

It's that dilema but to be fair the game came out in 2010 no way was I gonna wait until 2012!!!

Post by: zerosum on November 08, 2011, 12:49:48 PM
It's all dependent on a personal level, I guess. I've waited till ...whenever I pick it up again to get through it, so I personally think I could've waited for it. But I'll admit, the Collector's Edition was pretty sweet.

Finished Lonesome road last week, best of the DLC from New Vegas for sure. Once finished head back in and have a chat to Ulysses as there is part of a new area you open up, but u have to make sure your quite a higher level and u have some good firepower. I def dont think it was as good as Fallout 3 because of all the bugs and bits of pieces, but i did enjoy it and i got my moneys worth
Title: Re: Fallout: New Vegas
Post by: Windedprism on November 08, 2011, 08:22:45 PM
I think a part of New Vegas not being as enjoyable was because it was so soon after Fallout 3 and so similar. The bugs were mostly funny for me. Lonesome road better than Blues? wow nice, because Blues I think is really excellent dlc.

I loved New Vegas, and it is definitely one of those games that I'll pop back in once a year to see what mods are going on.
Title: Re: Fallout: New Vegas
Post by: zerosum on November 09, 2011, 02:29:31 PM
I keep telling myself I'm going to get back into it, but then something else drifts along that distracts my attention.

I may need an intervention to sit down and play it again. I'm also concerned that by the time I get back to it, the game will feel so dated I'll be turned off by it (I want to say it's doubtful, but definitely possible).  :-\
