WorthPlaying: "To Obsidian Entertainment and fans who remember Black Isle Studios, Fallout: New Vegas can seem like a long-awaited homecoming. Several of Obsidian's own had worked on the first two Fallout titles on the PC, in addition to many of the classic RPGs that are regarded as milestones within the genre. Bethesda's own take on Fallout is proof positive that postapocalyptic RPGs have a future with the current generation of players.
Obsidian has leveraged its extensive experience by bringing its own "flavor" to the desert. The separation between Fallout 3's and New Vegas' stories is similar to what J.J. Abrams did with the new "Star Trek" by giving it a new timeline."
