Fallout: New Vegas (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
« on: April 21, 2009, 07:37:50 AM »
I never got to play Fallout 1 and 2, but I love Fallout 3.  I know a lot of people are pissed at what Bethesda did when they got their hands on the Fallout name, but it's seriously one of the greatest games I've played in a long time.

Now Black Isle Studios (Now Obsidian Entertainment), under Bethesda, are making a Fallout game called Fallout: New Vegas.

There aren't any details except that it's coming out in 2010 and it will have similar gameplay as Fallout 3.

Don't know much about New Vegas beyond what you posted Supes. Same engine, new character and new setting. I would expect some tweaks, new weapons and new perks. Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2 are out first and that is were my focus currently lies.

Oh and apparently the development team is heavy on Fallout 2 (yes 2 not 3) developers.

Hold up. So what I'm hearing is "I don't have the money because I'm spending it on sex," and for months no doubt. Poor baby.

Buster charges for sex?

Does he do paypal or Visa debit?

We bought Buster outright for a can of Coke and a handful of bottle caps that Hades had in his pocket from the night before.  I don't claim to understand the ins and outs of the hobo economic system, but it's never done me wrong.

Things so far:

I hate the cowboy music.

Weapons seem to degrade much more quickly than in 3 (or are already more degraded before you get them).

Where's all the ammo?

I align my shots seemingly spot-on and still miss. >:(

I picked the Wild Wastelander stat, so we'll see what kind of shenanigans come my way.

I heard the opposite about the weapon quality.

Ammo is supposed to be scarce.  It's Fallout, not a fps.

I don't remember having as much trouble acquiring ammo in 3. But then again it's been two years since that first play through and I got used to my higher level characters.

Violence is an acceptable solution. So is fighting fire with fire and singing Vengaboys.

That face has no effect when the Vengaboys are concerned. Do not fret, little one. If I counted one's taste in music against him I would not be married, and Super and I would not be friends.

FYI, you can buy Fallout 1 and 2 from http://www.gog.com for cheap.
LOL @ Pam... if I had $20 for every time someone used that word with me... well....

Exploring New Vegas? Short on cash and low on ammo? Resigned yourself to thieving for supplies, but can't be bothered with all the aggro that goes with it? Don't want to waste your last valuable Stealth Boy on a simple case of common robbery? Well have we got the exploit for you.

All you'll need is a common-or-garden bucket. Because buckets in Fallout: New Vegas, it seems, have mystical properties. They turn your crime invisible allowing you to get away with the most blatent and surreally amusing crime in all of Nevada.

Simply find one of said multi-purpose recepticles, carry it to the scene of your chosen heist, and fill it with what you want. Then just drag the bucket away. It's that simple. Apparently the people of New Vegas can only register one item you're carrying at a time, and have no qualms with whatever you might want to do with your very own cylindrical metal pot.

Fallout 3 is $30 on Steam.  Not the deal I was hoping for, but better than $50.  I guess it's the kind of game that holds on to its value.

Fallout 3 is on sale on Steam for $15 or $20 for the Game of the Year Edition.  I wish their holiday sale didn't come at, you know, the holidays, when I don't have any money at all.

There's only one show per year, and I don't take requests. Figure it out yourself, ass dip.

Over a year and a half later and I'm finally returning to the Fallout world. Seven hours later (seriously?), I remember why I try to stay away from this stuff. If one could suck dick for Fallout, I would suck dick for Fallout.

When I played 3, I had the wiki up next to me pretty much the whole time to make sure I didn't miss a thing. I'm hoping the New Vegas is expansive enough that if I play it through organically, I won't miss much.

I'm playing as a mostly good gunslinger that will still totally clean out the safe the second you turn your back. Mostly because I'm sort of a boring person. I'm getting the sense that it's more than just good or bad though. Obviously there are many factions going on. That'll be fun to balance.

I was rocking the vault jumpsuit while I was starting out and could use the speech bonus. However, I also have some light armor (I assume from one of the DLCs) that I wore right up until I got to dress up as a sheriff which I will be doing as long as possible. I have some special 10mm (I assume from DLC again) that I've been mostly relying on, though I also have a special shotgun and a few other pistols when ammo runs low.

I've spent most of my time in Goodsprings so far. I was attempting to exhaust all of the experience and caps they could provide me while I earned a good reputation there. However, once I saved Ringo from the Powder Gangers, they seemed pretty intent on getting me out of town an on with my life.

Currently, I'm helping Primm replace their sheriff. While, I think wisely, I'm keeping neutral to good with the NCR, I got the strong impression most people accept their help grudgingly. Also, I don't have the skill to ask the robot to be sheriff, so I'm trying to get into the jail to get that guy. I just now realized that I have a Powder Gangers outfit somewhere and I should probably try using that to sneak in. I tried that tactic when I was first fighting the escaped convicts in Primm. I didn't know they weren't considered proper Powder Gangers and only succeeded if pitting the NCR against me while I was trying to fight off the convicts.

In Fallout 3 you got a house in Bombtown pretty early on. It was handy for story tons of crap that you weren't sure was rare or not yet. Is there anything like that in New Vegas? Currently, I'm stashing all of my stuff in a mailbox outside the store in Primm. I'm not the biggest fan of that solution.

You know what? I got all hyped about New Vegas when it came out. I reserved it, bought it, took it home, played it for a few hours, then for some reason never picked it back up. I should though. No reason not to.
