Fallout: New Vegas

Releases tomorrow (10/19). Here's an early review/preview.

Ok OK Ė Iíve been asked for some thoughts on the game so far. Here we go.

Iím still very early into the game (only about 12hrs Ė Iíve accomplished NOTHING!) but Iím back in Wasteland bliss. The enviroments still look as bleak, gritty and dirty as always (especially taking place in the Mojave Desert) yet still beautiful. I really donít want to say too much to anyone but I will say that as of this moment, the player assumes the role of a Courier who gets shot and left for dead for one reason or another and you set out to find out who shot you and why.

For anyone wondering if this game is as big as Fallout 3, I can say with 100% certainty that it isÖmaybe even bigger. The gameplay is exactly the way it was before with some tweaks. One major change is the ability to play through ďHardcore ModeĒ which is offered once the user creates the player. Hardcore mode is crazy. Now Ammo carries weight, your player must stay hydrated, fed and rested otherwise, he/she will die or suffer serious consequences. I opted to play normally for my first kick at the can.

Another interesting change is the use of factions. Scattered throughout the Mojave Wasteland are factions of people whe the player can align themselves with or against. This will seriously impact where you can and canít go without fear for retribution by said faction as well as the options and quests that open or close on you. Further to that, each faction has their own uniquie look and clothing style.

This also affects how different factions react to your pressence. So now with this knowledge, youíll have to really pick and choose your fights and what armor/outfits you keep handy because they do carry weight as any armor will.

There are even a slew of different creatures and enemies to encounter and fight in the wastelands though Iím sure I havenít seen all of them yet.

All in all Obsidian and Bethesda have done an amazing job. This is a sequel truely worthy of the Fallout brand. Expect a full review sometime on Tuesday. With only 2 more days to wait, Iím sure some of you are losing sleep with anticipation but rest well Ė Youíll need it for the long hours youíre sure to spend on this title.

Lamest thing ever is when I bought the GOTY edition and got to about a Level 5 and was walking around the wasteland and I came across a downed alien ship and I thought that it was the one where you get a super weapon, but it turned out to be the alien spaceship. It took forever and wasn't even that fun. I haven't even played since I beat it. I still need to do those other DLC missions.

PS, does anyone know if you get anything extra if you reserve it? I think I can still reserve at Game Stop through tomorrow.

Yeah I found that link. I went ahead and went with Amazon. Just preordered it. Not only do I get that melee gear and poison, but I get a $10 video game credit for a future game.

I have a feeling I may end up getting this despite my better judgment. I've checked out some video on it this morning, and it looks to be more in line with what I think is the spirit of the original Fallout games. Should be some reviews tomorrow, so we'll see what they say.

Here are some shots from the launch party at the Palms. Wayne Newton was there, which was pretty surreal. He looked, in a word, wax-y/plastic.

Brief thoughts from playing the game for 5-7 minutes. The graphics and FPS mechanics are somewhat improved, but it's more Fallout 3.5 than anything else. Will still buy it, though.

Played it for about 10 hours so far.

If you were thinking they were gonna make a new, polished Fallout you're gonna be disappointed. All the jank is still there. It's basically Fallout 3 with new locations and new weapons (some of which are very cool.) There are some minor additions like factions that can like/dislike you, books that will add points to skills for a limited amount of time, a new companion interface, etc.

If you liked Fallout 3 and want more, you'll like this.

Same here, and with Amazon credits I'm getting the game 1/2 off, so Fallout 3.5 is fine with me.

Is that a dog with a human brain?

Hope those are in the game.

Works for me. I don't need new and improved with every game if there was nothing wrong with the old one.

Also, being old, not having to learn any new stuff is a plus.
