That's where Bethesda dropped the ball. Fallout wasn't just a setting, it had a tight rules system too. Just like D&D isn't just a setting. Bethesda doesn't like the restrictions that real RPG systems impose on their ADD addled target audience - Cimmerian

More info on Game: Fallout: New Vegas

Here's some new info from the Australian PC Powerplay preview of Fallout: New Vegas:

  • New Wild Wasteland trait, which unlocks wackier variants of existing content.
  • From a design and technical point of view, it made sense not to continue the story of the Lone Wanderer.
  • New Vegas is a fortress.
  • Sidequests may be more rewarding than the main quest.
  • Critical path is only 20% of the main game.
  • Epic moments, like Liberty Primes trip through DC, will litter the critical path.
  • Unique dialog for low intelligence characters.
  • Survival skill, for cooking at a campfire.
  • Certain drinks will dehydrate you in hardcore mode.
  • Some areas may have vegetation
  • Converting a mod to work with the new tool kit will require some work, but is relatively simple.
  • This is the Fallout game that Chris Avellone and Josh Sawyer wanted to make.

Thanks Ausir!
