Not that I didn't still end up having to redo stuff and roll back to even older saves.
100 save slots in FO:NV, right?
It's amazing that this game has brought back the need for constant saving. We got so spoiled with autosaves that you have to wonder how many people are going to do exactly what you've done.
I'd be pretty interested to see crash statistics with regards to pc vs. 360. Also, it would be interesting to break the 360 category down into the various flavors of 360s. I've seen games crash on my launch 360 that didn't crash on my Modern Warfare 2 edition xbox.
And you're right. Bugs can be patched, which is another argument I gave him.
But is it enough to take away from the general "Falloutness" of the game? Fallout 3 was plagued with technical issues and bugs and that didn't stop me from having a positive experience with the game.
Some of the issues in Fallout 3 had me thinking to myself that, in a game like Halo or Gears, they would have been the end of the series. In Fallout 3, however, I didn't really take issue with them and was willing to deal with that. Not really sure why, though.
I'm with you though. I remember looking at the trait as I was picking out my perks and going, "This has GOT to be good....right?" No brainer. You've gotta pick it at least once.
So, I'm not going to pretend like I've beaten Fallout:NV, I'm actually only about an hour into the game, but I recently got into it with a friend on twitter about whether or not he was going to get this game. His argument was that the game was made by Obsidian Entertainment, and because of the near-complete failures of Alpha Protocol and KOTOR II, he was going to wait and see how this game shaped up before he bought it. My argument was that this game was being built on the framework that already existed from Fallout 3 and that, despite what would inevitably be a buggy game (proven by gameplay and the recent review on GB), it was still going to be a Fallout game and would, therefore, be something worth devoting time.
One hour into Fallout:NV and I couldn't be any more right.
Is the game a bit buggy? Sure
Are the graphics not the best on the market today? Probably (but who really cares)
Is it still Fallout 3-style gameplay? Absolutely.
And that, more than anything, is the reason to pick up this game. I put almost 100 hours into Fallout 3, and judging from what I've read, that's less than average for the people that enjoyed Fallout 3. I can't see how, despite bugs and glitches, you wouldn't enjoy this game if you were one of those people.
