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.

Nah, it has nothing to do with that. Just be wary, frazod.

Heh.

Gamespy has an article entitled "Fallout: New Vegas Bugs Transforming the Wasteland into Oddworld" but ironically if you follow the link you get a 404 error.

The rest of their description reads as follows:

Fallout: New Vegas is swarming with bugs -- and we're not talking about the mutated insects you'll find in the wastelands. As gamers with fresh copies of the anticipated game are discovering, Bethesda and Obsidian's latest post-apocalyptic adventure is packed with programming flaws

I haven't really encountered any Bugs, but I have crashed twice in about 6 hours of gameplay. Its annoying. I even turned off the game for good when I had 4 good hours left in me last night and I got to sleep at a reasonable time.

Yeah, thats how annoyed I was.

I still can't decide which faction I want to align myself with, either the NCR or Caesar's Legion.

8 hours in (hardcore mode - normal) and no bugs or serious framerate drops and most importantly no corrupt saves.
Loving it.

Are you playing on the 360?

Do you have the canteen?

I heard it makes a huge difference in hardcore mode.

I went with non-hardcore for my first run through.

Me too. Something too intimidating to me about the hardcore setting for the first run-through.

360 and I do have the canteen. Adds tons of realism to the game;surviving in a wasteland.. Sure does suck having to fast travel to doctors in order to heal limbs though.. And doctor bags are not easy to come by.

I think I killed the leader of Caesar's Legion already and I'm only 8 hours into it.
