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.

Boone is also "supposed" to upgrade his armor if you find the right culprit in his quest. He never did for me.

Man, I still get my ass destroyed by the Mother & Alpha Male Deathclaws at the quarry. I'm at level 25, 83+ gun skill, and have some of the best weapons in the game (Gobi sniper rifle, All-American, the Archimedes 2 gun, etc.) I guess it's nice to have some challenge towards the end game.

**** that. I'm 6 levels in between that last save.
I have Cass waiting to be my companion while Boone is still attached but nowhere to be found... He's not in novac (where he should reset) and he isn't anywhere on the Strip (where I lost him)...

It's been a little buggy for me. A handful of lock ups.

Do we not get to pick a perk every time we level up?

How do you get to the Boomers? I tried following the directions but I get lite up anyway. I even tried the train tunnel and got lite up.

Between a busy schedule (wedding, visit to in-laws) and lots of really good football, I still really haven't played this much at all. I need to get busy slacking.

I'd highly recommend getting the Fallout 3 GOTY edition.

Should be cheaper and by the time you're done with that Vegas will also be much cheaper.

You'd really be cheating yourself if you skip F03...

FO3 is one of the best RPG games ever made... and also one of the largest in terms of both scale and content. That said, it is also single-player only, and definitely not a "fast-twitch" shooter like CoD. I know a lot of people who HATE FO3 and games like it (Mass Effect, KOTOR, Dragon Age, etc.); not so much for the game itself but rather the gameplay and genre. Keep that in mind when deciding between the two.

I absolutely LOVED Mass Effect 1 and 2 (my top 5 of all time). I loved KOTOR and enjoyed DA:O quite a bit. FO3, on the other hand, was 'meh' at best. I beat it just to beat it and sold it. I honestly enjoyed Oblivion more than I did FO3 but even that game was pretty underwhelming. At least the story was a lot more interesting and intriguing. I think I'm one of the 2 people who didn't like FO3 all that much, lol.

From that I would say you like the genre and are particularly impressed with BioWare's titles. I can empathize; I too find BioWare games to be excellent, but different than Bethesda's. The latter's titles are definitely "grittier" and slower-paced.
