Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Looks like "Honest Hearts" is coming out May 17th, "Old World Blues" in June, and then "Lonesome Road" in July.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Can't wait...although I'll be annoyed if we lose all our equipment and weapons again, ala Dead Money.

Awesome. Although with LA Noire releasing the same day, I won't be downloading this for awhile.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Glad to see the expansions are coming, but I'll be waiting for the GOTY edition before I play them.

Looks like the most interesting DLC mission is the last one.

I'm the most interested in Honest Hearts myself. I just wish we could play these "post game" like you eventually could with Fallout 3.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I kinda wish I had waited for the GOTY edition, because I'm determined to do that more often from now on. But since I already bought Dead Money, and love Fallout, I'll probably get them all on day one.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I was expecting the Burned Man to be a bit more mysterious and fearsome, but I'm curious to see how this plays out anyway.

I've been playing it for a little while.

The weather effects are interesting, but does it really add anything to the game? I don't know, instead of day or night you now have the added chance of day rain or night rain.

I like the location and potential storyline better than Dead Money. It may be because Zion feels more familiar and less like a nightmare.

If you want more Fallout: New Vegas, like I did, download it. If you're on the fence wait for a better review than this.

The coolest thing so far, is that now...

Spoiler:
You can dress in identical NCR Ranger Combat Armor without the negative effects of being branded NCR. All you need to do is find the Desert Ranger Combat Armor.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

So are there still PS3 crashing issues? I just ordered this for PS3 since I'm sure my 360 is about to RROD yet again and didn't want to get stuck not being able to play it.

The PSN store is still down from the PSN hack.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

For those who have downloaded Honest Hearts, do you play as your character with all your gear?

I just picked it up Sunday and didn't have any problems until I got into New Vegas (Strip/Freeside, etc.). But once I started missions in that area the system was freezing up hard with painfully slow loading times - and unfortunately there's so many of them in that area..

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I was prompted for a game update when I put the disc in the first time (had a good 20 minutes waiting impatiently for that process to finish up), but I don't recall if there was an update number mentioned. I saw your reference to the 1.05 for PS3 - do you know if I can check my current game version number (or if I can see the patch update)?

This is only the fourth game I've played on the console, so be gentle.

Thanks

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

if you were prompted for an update then it should certainly be the most recent. but you can check it from "Game Data" under the "Game" menu. re: the game, I don't know what to tell you. Mine was freezing and stuttering horribly, until the most recent patch, and now its fine. You can check the Bethesda Forum for what others think, I stopped reading there once the fix came out: http://forums.bethsoft.com/index.php...tion-3-issues/

You'll probably read about a bunch of wacky "work-arounds" people suggested, but I never did any of that. Just waited for the update.

Yeah, that's what I thought ..also the reason why I was surprised with the problems after hearing about the patch.

Ran it for about six hours last and didn't have as many problems but did notice some choppiness after 4-5 hours in (about the same time as I noticed the problems from my last session). Cold booted the PS3 and it started working great again.


General game question ...?

I'm around level 15 and it didn't take long to notice that the perk upgrades are only available every other level up. Is that the way this game is really set up or might it have something to do with the difficulty level I'm playing on?

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

good to hear. a reboot after 4-5 hours might be a good idea. I usually play for about 4 at a time.

The every-other level perk is a hard rule. Once the PSN store is back up, the first DLC add-on raises the level max to 35, and thus allows 2 or 3 more perks.
