Good read!
"There is an optional hardcore mode, the character needs to drink water, ammo has weight, healing isn't instant etc"

So basically just like STALKER, =)

just hope hardcore mode isn't needed to platinum it.
Letros  +   2191d ago
who gives a f about achievements anyway.
A Cupcake for Gabe  +   2191d ago
I didn't say achievements. I said the Platinum. They are fun to brag with amongst friends. Need...? of course not. But still an awesome thing to have.

Agree with Letros.

Sad how gamers this generation need to chase carrots in order to play a game. Play the game for the love of the game, not a silly number next to your name.

i hope..
though i doubt, it runs on a new or revamped engine. fallout 3 is one of my favorite games of this generation, but it's got a lot of flaws. the friendly ai is a big example of this. aside from them standing stone still and never breaking eye contact while talking to you, they seem to have no attention span when you aren't talking to them. they will see you sneaking around and say "don't do that" then turn their backs on you and let you rob them blind. i don't mind getting rich in these games by stealing everything they've ever owned, but i wish it felt just a little more real.

They should make the original (Fallout3) actually playable.

My girlfriend has clocked it and two of the expansions but the crashes and freezes are so frequent that I think she will lose patience soon.

It averages one crash every 40 or so minutes.

I believe ammo had weight in Fallout 3 as well. Very miniscule, but I think it did.
starvinbull  +   2191d ago
No it doesn't. No ammo on Fallout3 has weight.

I love Fallout 3 and New Vegas seems a lot of fun too :)

But this got me worried:
"You are not a vault dweller but are given a Pip-Boy by someone who is one."

You can play as a Pip-Boy or some Pip-Boys out there are alive! D:

No, someone who is a vault dweller and thus has a Pip-Boy can give you a Pip-Boy.
Julie  +   2192d ago
aww no Pip-Boys to kill in V.A.T.S ? :(

hehe :)

Joke aside ty for the info!

When you load the game, maybe it'll read your Fallout 3 file and the character you get it from is ...wait for it...."YOU"

I heard that this game has an intro like DA:O where you have a bit of a back story before you get your Pip-Boy and venture out into the western wasteland.

I'm still working on FO3, just picked up the GOTY edition and am loving it. Let's see if Harold is still alive in Vegas =)
A Cupcake for Gabe  +   2191d ago
I hope this ties to FO3....area 51, brotherhood of steele connections, etc.....this is an amazing setting...the entire series is truly epic and immersive

fallout 3 was 1 of my fav games in the last few year but never played the original fallout games! so excited to see what the original developers can do with a current gen fallout :D
Kakihara  +   2191d ago
Wow, I pretty much asked for that hardcore mode here a month or two ago. I don't normally like to play games on crushing difficulty as I prefer the experience to the challenge but that's gonna be great and add tons to the experience. I just hope it doesn't mean every enemy is also near impossible to kill.
kaveti6616  +   2191d ago
Really looking forward to this. Not to sound like a graphics whore, but I'm also hoping that there is some level of improvement in the visuals over Fallout 3. I just don't like the idea that the developer can spend an extra two years of development time on a sequel and give you a product that looks about the same as its predecessor.

Other than that, I know this game will be loads of fun. Can't wait to buy GOTY edition of Fallout 3 for my PS3. My 360 version is at a friend's house.
MK_Red  +   2191d ago
This sounds more like Fallout 2 and that is beyond good news. I just hope the final game is indeed a true Fallout game like that and not a disappointment like Fallout 3 (Specially compared to F1 and 2).
thereapersson  +   2191d ago
I completely agree
I thought Fallout 3 was fun and engrossing, but I didn't feel it lived up to the standard set by the first couple. This is especially true when I think about how good the first game was for its time. Definitely a revolutionary RPG in its own right.
MK_Red  +   2191d ago
Yeah. On its own Fallout 3 was decent but compared to what original Fallout did back then... revolutionary indeed. Hopefully Vegas will be closer.
Fragger2k8  +   2191d ago
Hardcore mode should be pretty interesting. I'm looking forward to trying that out.
