Default Fallout: New Vegas

Alright - I'll start the discussion because I know there are adequate amounts of nerds here. Who bought it? Who is doing "hardcore" mode?

I committed about 8 hours to it on normal mode so far and I'm loving it. As a warning - the missile silo place = rapage.

Been absorbed with Fallout 3 myself.

Loving having the PS3. If just for Netflix/media center use.

I'll be picking up fallout very soon. I was a big fan of the originals, and I love morrowind/oblivion.

Awesome. Should be out here tomorrow. I've been playing Fall Out 3 to death and still find myself just wandering around to absorb the details. Still would've preferred some sort of continuance of FO3, now it feels like abandoning this and just starting fresh with new vegas. Oh well, if it's half as good as 3, I'm a happy man.

Download the expansion pack to FO3 if you want a continuation! Seriously though, New Vegas really is similiar to FO3 but add some nice new details that addresses some of the shortcomings of 3. Also, New Vegas has the opportunity to make it more of a "sim" if you are ballsy enough. Dehydration, stimpacks are not instant, party members die....eesh.

I've downloaded all but one of the add-ons. Most were quite good, but Point Lookout didn't quite get me. I preordered New Vegas anyway, so we'll see. I'm back home sunday so that hardcore gaming can start

I'm doing hardcore mode! I figured it'd probably be more challenging this way. Fallout 3 was one of my all time favorite games by far, but after awhile it was like I was too high of a level and had too many guns, armor, etc, that I just ran around and fucked everything up. It wasn't a challenge after long.

New Vegas so far has been way more challenging right off the bat. Having to worry about dehydrating, and now stimpaks are no longer good for crippled limbs, makes it harder for sure.

I also picked that first trait/skill that said it wasn't for the faint of heart. I forget what it was called, but it said it shows different dialog throughout the game. I've already had a few things happen that I think were from picking it.

I'm at the silo place by the t-rex right now. Right when I walked in I got raped and decided that was a good stopping point and turned it off. The next couple days I'll be too busy to play, so I'm going to play now for an hour or so. My gf hasnt seen it yet, but she's going to ******* hate it for sure. lol

oh I want it so bad, I played the **** out of Fallout 3. But I have been reading around, seems to be kinda glitchy. But I am sure a couple of patches will have it perfect. But instead I bought Mafia 2, because I loved the first one. That was a waste of money. Fallout New Vegas is in my near future, I can feel it.

I've come across only one glitch so far. Jumped onto a sink in a house and got stuck on it. I just loaded my last save file from when I entered the house and it was fine.

Ohh, and it did freeze up on me once and the controller was just vibrating and wouldn't respond to the main X button to shut it down. I usually take that as I sign that I've been playing for too long. lol

Lets see....

I have a building to finish painting. A floor I just painted yesterday that needs the gloss sealer put on it. And about $10k in parts ready to be listed on ebay.

But for some ******* reason, I cant find a way to NOT play a little fallout for a half hour or so while I drink my coffee. lol

I can't get Fallout until I finish Nier. I'm done buying games before I finish the last one I bought...with the exception of SSF4 because it was $25 on Amazon a few days ago and I had to...

Just saw this thread. So far I love fallout new vegas, got about 20 hours into it. Really wish there was more new stuff though, it just feels like an expansion pack.

Little word of advice, don't buy extended mags for the weathered 10mm pistol, theres a glitch that turns the gun into a giant red box with a white ! and it makes it hard to see out of. It's like they didn't make a model for it and thats the default.

Also has anybody finished the Heartache by the number quest? I can't get cass to talk to me about selling.

Oh and for those wondering like I was, it's probabbly possible to make it to Vegas in like 5 but I made it into the strip about 20 hours in.

I beat FO3 within a few hours, only following the main quest, apparently the shortest main quest. I lost interest after that. It looks like I'm gonna need to give this one a try.

I played a little before. Just enough to get my fix. lol

What did you guys do at the Helico (I think) place where all the NCR guys are hanging out at? I couldn't decide where to distribute the power to, so I just armed the laser and watched it blast the **** out of all the guys outside. Then killed the scientists and went on my way. I'm wondering how much that's going to effect gameplay later on.

I updated it today, figuring it was a bug fix or something, but I had another glitch happen to me today. When I would click on the terminal, it would make the noise like it came up, but it didnt show any screen, just my guy like normal. This is probably just another one of many bugs to come....

Should we maybe add "SPOILER INSIDE" on the title of this thread for those that haven't started yet and don't want to read anything like this?
