A compelling and in depth argument.

I can't believe how indifferent i am about any dlc content for NV. T'is coming from someone who bought and enjoyed every piece of dlc content for FO3. It's a great game don't get me wrong, i just don't know why they sound totally uninteresting to me.

So long as it addresses some of the bugs that plagued the original game and is a enjoyable DLC addition that helps bolster the Fallout: New Vegas story, then I will look into it. Just need the PSN store to catch up on updates so I can get it (along with Dead Money).

About 10 minutes into the DLC a important character fell inside of a boulder, I had to load a save.

Not until the game is a little more fixed.

Do you get better party members.

That is the part I miss from Fallout 3.

Good party members.

I don't think I even remember anyone from New Vegas except Boone and whatever that gay guys name was.

Oh, so the DLC removes all the glitches, the game crashes, save file bugs, and updates the engine to look like something modern?

Seriously, New Vegas wasn't bad because the story or the characters were poorly done; New Vegas was bad because it only barely worked.  I rushed to the ending of the game because I was fucking sick of reloading saves after game crashes.

I read the IGN review and it seems like something I'd want to play. I might wait a little while longer to see what other people think before i buy it, as Dead Money was an impulse buy for me and HOLY MOTHER OF GOD DID THAT DLC SUCK BIG BLACK ELEPHANT DICKS.

This DLC really likes to throw random assortments of enemies at you. They aren't difficult but seeing a mantis, scorpion, and cicada (or whatever those orange flying things are) at once is surprising. And the fact that enemies seem to spawn out of nowhere is unusual but it keeps you on your toes. I've a level 35 sniper/stealth-based character so crouching suppresses any ambushes that could have been so that isn't much of a problem for me.


And for some reason, on the PC version, this DLC runs surprisingly better than when in the main game, in New Vegas. I get maybe a 10 fps increase indoors and outdoors.

I was digging it till after only a short time I was on the last quest... It's really short, and most of the time its you running from one end to the next. Or trying to figure out how to get to some place.

You know the major bugs and crashes were fixed a loooong time ago via a major patch.

Yeah if you don't mind dropping all followers, and 2/3 of your inventory, for some silly weight restriction before entry to Zion.  Correct? This is offputting for me, not even considering all the problems w/FO:NV, post patch. Don't think I can go back, and I played 4/5 of the FO3 DLC, which was mostly great.

Then I'd hate to have played that game with the major bugs and crashes.  I bought it only a month ago.
