In anticipation of the tribulations presented by Fallout New Vegas' hardcore mode, here’s our pre-emptive strategy to completing what we’ll dub the “Dicing with the desert” achievement.
Love this game... i got Platinum on Fallout 3
Love the first game, but there are too many games out there for me to play to spend as much time as it required of me to get platinum on Fallout 3. Heck, I still have to finish some of the DLC quests... Likely to be the same with Fallout NV. Regardless, I do love how they're doing a good job of making the hardcore mode something a bit different than just harder opponents.
I remember I bought all five DLC packs when they released, clocked +200 hours into one game save, had nearly every item in the game and had around 1300+ on my gamer score with missing only three to five achievements. Oddly enough I wish to buy GOTY Edition for my PS3 now..
to throw my controller in frustration at this mode. /no sarcasm. I got every achievement in Fallout 3; wouldnt mind going for a platinum.
This mode sounds awesome, I'll definitely playing it this way on my first playthrough to make things more exciting. Fallout 3 was great but I get the feeling what Obsidian is cooking is gonna surpass Fallout 3 by a milestone. Too bad we have to wait till October.
I'm still not sold on Obsidian. Going to wait on some serious gameplay videos and previews.
Just so you know. Obsidian are basically the developers of the original fallout. Just a name change. So if anyone knows how to make a fallout game, i imagine it'd be them.
i'd really like to play this game on the hardcore right out of the gate, but i have a feeling that the enemies won't be balanced/scaled properly to compensate for it.
the water meter alone blows my mind and bullet weight! i see many house of micro management heaven! =3
I'm gonna go immediatly on to Hardcore Mode, having heard some people saying they are going to play through once before, I dont see the need, we've played Fallout 3 for hundreds of Hours, thats enough preperation for me...
Except if your trying to collect everything possible. I've done this with my last play, of collecting every book, tin can, empty nuka bottle etc. I only collected enough cloths, and guns to have a 2 count of each in perfect condition. But I am sure there will be a trophy/achivement that requiers a hard mode play session.
