Something I'd like to point out.

This may not be the city of new Vagas, the large amount of light and what appears to be civilisation gives an indication of Purified Water and power. It'd be stupid to import water from other places. It's my personal belief that this is set in the area surrounding the Hoover Damn for a few reason.

1. The Hoover Damn could provide energy for the population of Hoover City.
2.With the Tech from Fallout 3 one could quite easily purify, protect and collect purified water creating a rich and advanced society.
3. It's a common fact that NCR has a similar flag California Republic. And guess where the NCR battled for? Hoover Complex although it was much simpler my guess is after the 2242 Hoover War that NCR went on to develope the complex into what we see today.
4. Hoover Dam was set to appear in Van Burren or Fallout 3 pre-Bethesda. Now IF you where bethesda what would you do? Create a whole new story and characters or use stuff that's allready in the game.

Well that's my opinion anyway I'm probably wrong but it maes sense.

EDIT: Looks like I was spot on.... also here's a bit of a hint.

The NCR will be fighting the BrotherHood in all likelyhoods.

Since it's being made by the ex-Fallout 2 devs, I'd say it's a safe bet that a lot of Van Buren ideas are going into this title. Apparently the project lead was actually Black Isle's Fallout 3 project lead. I'm glad they went with the continuing story of NCR after FO2, instead of mysteriously bringing the Enclave back in full-force with no explanation after they were wiped out at the end of FO2 (cough cough... BETHESDA).

I'm absolutely pumped for this game. With Obsidian behind it, I feel like this will be the closest thing to Black Isle's Fallout 3 that we'll get. I loved Bethesda's Fallout 3, but it felt like a side-story more than a true sequel. Though I'd be lying if I said I wasn't glad that they brought the gameplay to the ground level, even if a lot of the mechanics could use a good ironing out. Should be interesting to see what Obsidian does with it.

I was dissapointed by the Fallout 3 atmosphere and level of back telling.

Don't get me wrong I though the game fantastic and pretty much my GOTY but I didn't like the falloutverse in it. I've read basically all the fallout wiki and I just though that was so much better.

It only makes sence that new vegas would be working on water purification, thus be next door to a huge water source ala Hoover dam and it be used also to power some form of AC power as well. AC obviously needed as the city is hella bright.

Loving your idea, I'm sure your right!
