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.

New preview. Hate to say it, but the graphics aren't really aging well.

If you haven't played Fallout or Fallout 2, do so immediately.

The games aren't "aged" because they were always so different from all the other games. While most were playing Duke Nukem and Command and Conquer (FPS and strategy games), Fallout was unabashedly turn-based and focused strongly on humor and nuances. Simply put, Fallout and Fallout 2 are still immensely playable, and will remain so, because it was never about the graphics for them.

Combat looks way better, similar to the jump between ME1 and 2.

There are about 2200 speaking characters to encounter in this game, the producer said, and all but one of them can be killed — and will stay dead — if you choose to be such a brute.
Excellent.

The little lamplight kids in FO3 were annoying as shit anyway. They didnt really serve any purpose either, other than being annoying as shit.

That whole entire segment of the storyline in dealing with the lamplighters was the low point of the game for me. You either have to waste a perk slot so the kids will help you advance the story, or you have to keep reloading until you pass these ridiculous speech checks to get the items you need from them.

It also wasnt believable that a colony of children could even begin to think about surviving in a world like that, so it drew attention to itself in a bad way.

Here is a video of a few different Factions you could join.

Ceasar's Legion, the New California Republic , Las Vegas ruler Mr. House, or align yourself with smaller groups like the Kings. Or don't join a group and take them all on.
