Eh, I wasn't so big on the main story in Fallout 3. It was all about gameplay for me.
Something to note is that Bethesda isn't doing this one. Fallout New Vegas will be done by the boys down at Obsidian. I don't know too terribly much about them except that they did KotoR 2.
I also couldn't help but notice there was a flag for California behind our trenchcoated figure. Looks like we'll get to see what's been going down in California since the Enclave was defeated in Fallout 2.
Oh and why not. Fallout has always been a blast to play. Doesn't matter if you're shooting rats outside of Vault 13, or blowing a Super Mutant's head into three pieces and watching them splatter on the side of the remains of the Washington Monument.
Interesting link with more info on the game. Not suprised that it looks exactly like FO3 since it uses the same game engine. But Hardcore mode looks like it might be interesting, and one less thing to need to mod.
I doubt it. When a human turns into a super mutant they lose their sexual traits. But that screenshot is FUCKING HILARIOUS.
Hardcore mode sounds cool.
California Republic vs. Caesar’s Legion vs. New Vegas residents? The namesake would suggest New Vegas are the good guys, but could it be that maybe the NCR has gotten out of hand? And who's this Caesar's Legion?
So Caesar's Legion was originally something planned for Van Buren? Interesting.
And Gibs, sometime after that little debate about Fawkes' gender Fallout 3's lead designer Emil Pagliarulo confirmed "No, Fawkes was absolutely a male. This was a mistake. Wes gave an interview and he was mistaken. Trust me, Fawkes is and was male."
Speaking of the Enclave, I wonder what kind of presence the Brotherhood of Steel is going to have in New Vegas. I'm only used to the East Coast Brotherhood and I know the two are drastically different. I know one major difference is in how they deal with new recruits. The east coast BoS flatly, but at least somewhat politely, say no. The west coast BoS on the other hand tell you to go fuck yourself and if you persist they send you on suicide missions.
