FileFront: Fallout: New Vegas Review

FileFront writes: "Fallout. The very name conjures to mind images of an irradiated wasteland rife with mutants, profiteers, slavers, and refugees. Bethesda received both praise and scorn for their take on the universe in Fallout 3, and I have faith that things will be much the same for Obsidian’s entry into the series, Fallout: New Vegas. So, is New Vegas a worthy successor to Bethesda’s epic tale?"

So they highly recommend the perk but say DO NOT use it if you're a serious Fallout player? Little bit of a contradiction.

Thats weird. What does it do? I read it but what is all the wacky stuff?

Horrific Load times, they must be playing with the PS3 version! ;) Kidding

SilverSlug3138d ago

but the PS3 version does have a 5gb install. FFFFFFFFFFFF...

I would HOPE for approve load times.

I thought the load times for dead rising 2 were terrible (fully installed) but it didn't stop me having fun.

Someone on Neogaf did say the load times on his 360 version were bad. Up to 20 seconds at a time while you are playing. But that's not a issue for me, I can put up with that for such a wide open game.

So the game had horrifc load time, game crashing bugs, yet it gets a 91?
