Much of the coverage for New Vegas so far has included many complaints that the game hasn’t been upgraded enough compared to Fallout 3. Many gamers were hoping to see significant improvements in graphics, character models, the user interface, and game mechanics. One way of approaching Fallout: New Vegas might be to think of it as a game in limbo between an expansion pack and a full fledged sequel. No, this isn’t Fallout 4, and no it isn’t an expansion on Fallout 3. New Vegas uses the resources Bethesda developed for Oblivion and Fallout 3, and improves upon many of them while keeping the core design intact.
