Fallout New Vegas details!

#1 Posted by deusdigit (710 posts) -

It sounds like what shadow run should have been on the next generation consoles.
 
Arena fights sound awesome and hacking in casinos sounds pretty nifty. 
 
It'd be kind of cool tho if they would just raise the level cap a little higher.

Yay!

#4 Posted by nanikore (2755 posts) -

Sounds good.

#5 Posted by Steve_C (1768 posts) -

Niiiice. I'll just be happy if Obsidian put out a game that's half as buggy as Fallout 3, but the new different things they are incorporating sound awesome.

#6 Posted by SamStrife (1328 posts) -

I loved Fallout 3 and playing a sequel made by the series original creators will be awesome. If those points are true, then the game sounds like it's going to kick it into high gear...they sound really f-ing awesome.

Probably the game I'm most looking forward to in 2010

Yeah, I'm definitely hoping for a much less-buggy game too. I've sunk over eighty hours into Fallout 3 thus far, but there are just so many technical issues I've experienced over the course of my time with the game... it's a real shame. Looking forward to this release though.

I really like the idea of the origins, but I'd be interested in hearing the other ones. Lets hope one of them is a Brotherhood of Steel one

cant wait for this game

#11 Posted by artofwar420 (6905 posts) -

If this is real, then I'm totally jumping into the train.

#12 Posted by MeierTheRed (5023 posts) -

Call me skeptical but i'm not trusting anything until it gets confirmed from the company how is making it.

#13 Posted by Blair (2557 posts) -

I want New Vegas so badly.
 
I'm also very skeptical and vehicles make me a little uneasy.

#14 Posted by OptimumNinja (43 posts) -

hopefully there will be some vehicles and maybe not so much women who look like men.

#15 Posted by Jimbo (10267 posts) -

So any news on where it's set?

#16 Posted by JellyFish_Gsus (770 posts) -

I totally forgot about this game. Cant wait for it now I played Fallout 3 to death.

#17 Posted by Venatio (4656 posts) -

Damn I hope that all that is true, the part about vehicles sounds really good

#18 Posted by Driadon (3085 posts) -

Holy.... My god, do I ever want now. If they do this right, this may become the "true" Fallout 3. That thought alone made my underwear wet.

Feeling like you guys IF this is true.  God, the Gamespot forums is not a source of information I highly regard.  But all of that sounds amazing, I would love to see it.

Have they just nullified "This is Vegas"?

Not until they have the dancing mini-games.  I actually forgot about that game.... vaporware?

Giving its publisher and developer, I trust this game to meet expectations.

#24 Posted by CenturionCajun (1573 posts) -

It still exists. It was one of the properties that Warner Brothers got when they bought up most of Midway. Whether or not it will ever be finished is another thing entirely.
 
I'm looking forward to New Vegas simply because it's more Fallout 3. And I love me some Fallout 3. While I believe that Obsidian is proficient they have a bad reputation as the "sloppy seconds" developer of others properties. Their only original IP is Alpha Protocol and that disappeared from it's release date and has been pushed to a generic 2010 release.
 
Yes, I know that Obsidian is made up of a fair number of former members of Black Isle but the Fallout 3 engine and world are a good bit different from the Fallout 1 and 2 days. Its been so many years that they have yet to prove themselves in my eyes.

#25 Edited by blackbeard (313 posts) -

I like it because it shows Vegas in ruins... I hate Vegas. 

Seeing as I am just getting into Fallout 3 now, I am not sure if I will like it or not but Fallout 3 seems cool. If I like Fallout 3 when I am done with it then I will likely get into this as well. I need some single player games that run long so this should fit the bill. 
 
I am wary of the vehicles as well though... I am getting flash backs of driving around Africa in Far Cry 2... it gets tedious. Its great to have a big game but having to drive around a 30 mile map can get boring. If there is some kind of fast travel system at some point then that helps.

Oh wow, I thought this was going to be a bit of DLC. INTERESTED.

#27 Posted by TheGreatGuero (8882 posts) -

Sounds awesome.

#28 Posted by bwooduhs (1679 posts) -

This game is gonna be awesome.

#29 Posted by VilhelmNielsen (1767 posts) -

Hopefully the vehicles will be limited, and the perspective not 1st person.
 
Great thing that this is Obsidian and not Bethesda.

#30 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2143 posts) -

I can't wait. More Fallout can only be a good thing.

While that sounds amazingly awesome, as it was when I saw it on the GAF, its already been proven false from a Game Informer dude.

That sounded so awesome too that I hope that whoever gave the details just got the magazine wrong. 
#32 Posted by Atlas (2567 posts) -

That sounds pretty awesome. Seems like they're going to strive to give the game a different feel to Fallout 3, and maybe give it more of the tone seen in the first two games. Regardless, I can never get enough quality RPG's, and it seems like this one is going to be up to the high standards of the series.

I just hope that if they're keeping third person prospective,it'll turn out better.

Can't wait!!!

#37 Posted by Dustpan (1781 posts) -

That whole background aspect sounds pretty freaking awesome.

Funny you should mention shadowrun. When I first played Fallout 1 I immediately thought about Shadowrun on SNES. I want a old school Fallout SNES retro backwards port in the style of Shadowrun.

#39 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5290 posts) -

Yeah I'll play it.

#40 Posted by Zereta (1499 posts) -

Sounds effing awesome.

#41 Edited by PenguinDust (12841 posts) -

I hope it's good but considering that Obsidian Entertainment just bumped Alpha Protocol yet again, I have to wonder how stable the studio is.  Such inconsistencies can make for a difficult work environment and a final product that is less than what it could have been.  I'm not saying Fallout: New Vegas will be junk, I'm just worried about the situation at Obsidian and how it might impact the game.
