SG - Sorry to start the headline with the word “Bethesda” and not have anything new about Skyrim, but this is big, BIG news! Remember that game you bought last year that critics were raving about?
This is you telling us your bored with New Vegas, mkay... doesn't really affect us who still enjoy the game. As for problems, I swear on my life I have NEVER had a freeze,crash,or glitch while I played New Vegas, I did hae problems though wile I played Fallout 3. I guess I'm just lucky.
Me to. Just seems to be a lot of haters for this great game.
Well I had alot of freezes and crashes while playing, i think the most i ever got was maybe 1 - 1 1/2 hours before a freeze and that was rare, been almost unplayable for months, yes my blu ray went but was playing some games for months after New Vegas was unplayable. I pre ordered Collectors Edition and got Collectors Edition guide day 1. I pray when i activate new system and transfer data that i will finally be able to play this game for extended times without freezing and get to really enjoy it for once!
PC or Console??? PC version goes great since day 1 for me.
Well that explains it then. You bought the shoddy port. Sad but true. Not saying that it's OK that they shipped a shitty console title. But I have never had to worry about that.
@Bear_Grylls I have the PC version. It's never crashed but it does have a game breaking sound bug where every sound crackles and pops. This POS is infinitely worse than Fallout 3 IMO.
I had a few crashes and glitches but that doesn't mean the game isn't super awesome. Can't wait for GOTY :D.
I have the complete opposite, Fallout 3 works fine for me, rarely a freeze, but Fallout New Vegas always freeze on me after about an hour of play time.
You apparently care enough to write 3 paragraphs of information.
I care about the new DLC. But nobody care about this "article".
do any of these dlc allow you to play beyond the end? of the main story?
** MINOR SPOILERS ** I seriously doubt it, mainly because of the way the main story ends, it would be hard to let you continue. Basically just about everyone in New Vegas is there because of the build up to the Dam battle. It would be hard to have a post-dam-battle world.
Only one i know if is Lonesome Hearts (i think thats the one), where you actually meet Courier 6 who was supposed to do the job you got shot doing and you find out why he didnt do it and more about that back story. @Pillville - And sorry but i havnt even played through the whole game yet cause of problems with game and system but have you actually played it Pillville? Alot of those places were there and had people well before the dam ordeal, only thing that really changed was the build up of NCR and Legion factions, NCR has a outpost there regardless and most every town and area is there whether or not the story you play through happens. I mean really how many towns or faction did you come across that were there just for the story you play and the dam battle, very very few! Although many are affected and have an interest in which way the battle goes they did not show up because of it... The world of New Vegas is there no matter what.
Unlike FO3, most of the the side quests in New Vegas deal with one of the main factions. You use those side quests to build or destroy reputations with those factions. Just about all the side quests would become either pointless or illogical to do after the main story line is finished. FO3 could do it because the side quests were pretty self contained (find a violin, kill a tree-person-mutation).
what a whiner!
Bethesda makes THE BEST role playing GAMES. Sure, there are FAR better stories out there (final fantasy, mass effect, etc.) but as far as pure role playing gameplay? Nobody gives you the freedom to do what you want and go wherever you want. Uncharted and God of War might be pretty, but those are extremely linear set pieces, ie, you can never wander off the super narrow path you're given. Come 11.11.11 I'm going to say goodbye to my social life for a month or 2.
Regardless of weather or not Bethesda make the best RPG's this game wasn't made by them.
Actually it was. Obsidian pretty much just made a big mod for the original Fallout 3. Heck, Fallout 3 and New Vegas are essentially big mods on the original Oblivion engine.
The newer DLC's they are working on for New Vegas actually sound a hell of a lot better than that first one they released. I need DLC to continue playing this game...
I care far more about New Vegas DLC than I do about shitty 'Sarcastic Gamer' articles.
LOL, Exactly, I never bought into Fallout: Vegas, I never FORGOT "Obsidian's track Record", if you will, with releasing "Buggy/Glitchy"(see: KOTOR: 2, etc) games, so i knew from that moment the "Industry" was releasing, a "Half-Bake" product, LOL, Fallout 1.2, but then "Technically Worst" than the Original Fallout:3, lol, so I think its quite Hilarious, that so many other gamers, didn't see this coming, and became part of the "Toture Experiment"(its called "Trauma Based Mind Control"), by the "Industry", lol. A waste of $$$, for sure, should have just saved $$$$, and waited on the Retail release of the Game w/its DLC included. That version will be more worth, your hard earned $$$, and most likely, w/o the "Major" bugs/glitches included, but hey!, maybe not, lol, wouldn't surprise me 1 bit if still maintained several bugs/glitches. LOL
