Fallout New Vegas

Post  capnwpac on Wed Oct 20, 2010 11:31 pm

So this will probably just feel like a big expansion to fallout 3 but I am still def picking this up.
Comes out today.

Stay posted, I'll post my opinions in the next few days.

Anyone else keen?

I've got it here at home now, but Vanquish will have my time for at least a week.

Turns out there is exclusive XBox DLC.
That's really shady, to hold back on announcing DLC that's only specific to one console right at launch of the game.

Further proof that Bethesda and Microsoft (especially) have no regard for their customers or consumers in general.
Asshats

I expected that. The expansions came out on xbox first and didn't work well on ps3 last time.
I won't get the expansions anyway, this is pretty much an expansion as it sits.
Plus I'll have black ops in a month.

Just finished the opening sequence and first two missions. It feels as if I never left the wasteland!
The game will be good, but again, I will finish Vanquish first.

Well this has not at all started well for me.

CONSTANT frame rate issues, as frequent as every 3 seconds. Also not one quest marker has appeared in the right spot.
There is a quest where you talk to a person inside a saloon then get told to mee them outside, for me the quest marker got placed about 3ks away. This is wrong as I watched Luke do the exact same thing as me about 15 minutes earlier.

Think my disc is fucked as Luke didn't seem to have this many issues straight off the bat.

Word is there are tons of issues and glitches.
Hopefully a patch is release before I pick up my copy.

Yeah well after my big cry I started it over again.
I picked different traits to see if they impacted my experience at all and it made a slight difference. (or none, not sure haha)

I redid the first missions but made sure I didn't exit the saloon before the chick did and she showed up this time.

I didn't pick Wild Wasteland as a trait this time around coz it is meant to affect your luck or something and I think that could be a contributing factor to my misfortune with quests, dunno.

From what I have played if this game gets patched then it will be unreal.
Simple things like being able to add silencers and scopes to guns, being able to make hollow point rounds etc that will make it great.

Very much looking forward to the working product.

It was an issue with my disk. Swapped the disk and I am not getting the constant tiny freezes anymore.

The audio had been skipping too so it may have been a scratch.

Game is playable and fun now.
Jeez it takes some time to level up though, I have done a fair bit and only hit level 2. I think this may be bigger in scope than fallout 3, we'll see.

Edge magazine noticed these technical issues as well and it seriously affected its scoring.

I agree with Edge to an extent.

It's a fantastic game because it's Fallout 3 (ive only played three hours though), BUT the bugs and shortcomings definitely do hinder the experience.

Just got Platinum on this motherfucker. Such a relief. The amount of freezes towards the end of the game was bullshit. Literally every 15 minutes.
