I hope so, too. The slow motion kills were my favorite. I loved getting into battles.

well over 100 hours of playtime, and it never got old...never once. Even with the same animations over and over....

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

• There is an optional hardcore mode, the character needs to drink water, ammo has weight, healing isn’t instant etc. Normal mode is more similar to Fallout 3 gameplay.

• The storyline is focused on the New California Republic vs. Caesar’s Legion vs. New Vegas residents.

• You are not a vault dweller but are given a Pip-Boy by someone who is one.

• There is a screenshot of a vault suit as well.

• There is an assault rifle looking like the M4, as well as a new big gun with a backpack, held like a minigun.

• There are special moves for melee weapons in VATS – specifically a move for a golf club called “Fore” which seems to be a groin shot.

• The Hoover Dam is in the game and is supplying electricity to the city.

• There is a quest to rescue a ghoul from some super mutants. The ghoul can then become your companion.

• The Geckos are back.

• There are both dumb and intelligent super mutants, including the elite Nightkin.

• Some super mutants look similar to the ones in Fallout 3, while others are new. There is e.g. a female super mutant with a 1950s hairstyle who apparently is one of their leaders.

• Screenshots include a guy with a beard and straw hat, a ghoul an NCR Ranger

• The only picture of New Vegas itself is concept art and not a screenshot

• Some location screenshots include a huge model dinosaur advertising a hotel, some satellite dishes, an array of solar panels

• A character generation shot showing a “vigour machine” instead of the skill book

• NCR base is the McCarran Airport, Caesar’s Legion is based in the Vegas Strip, while super mutants are based in a place called Black Mountain. There is also a town called Fremont and another called Primm. A topless reuve is mentioned as being in the latter.

• NCR Ranger armor is similar to a brown combat armor with sleeves, there are concept arts of a Ranger

• Skils have a bigger effect on conversation choices. E.g. someone with a high Explosives skill may be able to have a coversation about explosives where appropriate.

• There is a Reputation system in adition to Karma.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

female super mutant? is that possible?

Oh and I loved the "bloody mess" perk, or something like that. Pretty graphic.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

So they stretch the area from the California border to Arizona it seems like it. I wonder if it's all explorable, or more like a small area and you take a tram or something to Hoover Dam?

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Starting to get excited about this. If Obsidian does this right I may mentally consider this game to be the "real" Fallout 3.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

my one concern is that obsidian is also the studio working on the oft-delayed alpha protocol (which was announced in 2008 and scheduled for 10/09 release and has been pushed first to "spring 2010" and now to "summer 2010").

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I guess they're still working on Fallout 4, and this isn't considered a sequel.

Excuse me for thinking that some of the devs that worked on the original games understand Fallout better than Bethesda.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I dunno about the Elder Scrolls comparison. They did seem similiar, but I couldn't get more than a few hours into Oblivion. Fallout 3 was well over 100+ hours.

That says more about you than the game, and how big an emphasis you put on a game's setting and story.

I like them both, bu Fallout 3 is practically an Oblivion expansion pack.

Yeah, Fallout 3 is a good game, but it is a poor Fallout game.

I loved Fallout 1 and 2, though my heart always was with Baldur's Gate 1 and 2. I understand that a lot was changed in Fallout 3, and for many it was not even a Fallout game. I really could care less. Fallout 3 was a brilliant game. I don't care if it was Oblivion, with a pretty dress on, giving blowjobs for extra cash for its sick mother. Fallout 3 owned my ass like no game of this generation. It is not just the best game of this generation, but one of the best games ever made.

That being said, if they are able to bring some of the quirks that made the first Fallout games so fun, more power to them. I just get worried that it will be like Treyarch's Call of Duty games...good games, just missing something the other Call of Duty games had. Obsidian makes good games that are just not up to the level of the games before them. The Sith Lord was good, but not as good as the first. Never Winter Nights 2 got me to buy a new computer just to play it. I will NEVER do that again. Alpha Protocol looked amazing, but was delayed when it was leaked that Sega was not happy with it, and they wanted more "polish"

All signs point to a fun game, but lacking something....but by god I am still excited. I just hope they don't pull a Phantom Menace on us.

So you do care? If you could care less, that means you have to care some in order to care less. Now if you couldn't care less, then you don't care at all and there is no way to care less.

Sorry just a little nitpick I have when that phrase is misused.

obviously you missed the smack down by pinata (I think it was him) just a bit back when someone used that term. I almost changed my sig to it. He even had pictures detailing his point. I thought it would be funny to get jumped myself, but you ruined it....

Sorry to nitpick, it is just I get a little upset when people post thinking they are smart, when in truth they don't have all the facts ....I put two smiley faces!

Yeah when I read about the female super mutant with a 50's hairstyle, I rolled my eyes and thought of Maniac Mansion or something. The picture confirms my initial thoughts.
