PSM says Fallout: New Vegas will kick Fallout 3's ass [ Game -> Preview ]

Playstation Magazine is telling it how it is. PSM's sister pulication, CVG, posted this article preview - commence Bethesda slag and Obsidian love:

In an exclusive first look at Fallout New Vegas, CVG sister mag PSM3 reveals that developer Obsidian has taken dialogue and scripting up a notch in the sequel to Fallout 3.

lead producer of Fallout New Vegas, Larry Liberty said: "We had to modify the dialogue engine from Fallout 3 to include the types of dialogue and options that we wanted.

"We want real, memorable characters. I think it helps you to remember parts of the world you'd otherwise forget."

As part of its world-exclusive cover feature, PSM3 played an extensive demo of New Vegas. The mag reported that it was 'apparent that Obsidian are much more comfortable behind the keyboard than the team that made Fallout 3 and, before that, Oblivion. The scripting is wittier, the characters more distinct.'

To be honest, I never would have expected this from a print publication, but Bethesda certainly screwed over the Playstation community with the buggy and virtually unplayable release of Fallout 3 (which wasn't patched for a looong time).

This is also further validation that Fallout is back in the right hands. You can apparently already pick up this edition of PSM, as CVG is reporting it went on sale on 4 February.
