I've got a set of T-45d and T-51b, but no Enclave. Also, Power Armor Training is back (boo, hiss!).

Just found a bigass Chainsaw in Vault 3. Brutal. The set-up of Vaults is way cooler, they actually make sense in purpose and layout.

It is difficult to deviate because the Main Quest is actually good this go round. You can get Euclid's C-Finder in Freeside off of a kid for 1k. Not bad if you you're an energy specialist. I highly recommend you rip off the Silver Rush, just don't loot any of their armor or it'll be stuck in your inventory.

If you hate a companion but love their perk, you can park them somewhere safe and you'll still get the perk. Check in every few days and cycle the wait/follow command to prevent them from going home and you're golden.

So, just to clarify you're not all being Obsidion Fanboi fgts and this is actually a good game worthy of my paper money?

To further the question, is it worth buying now or waiting for the inevitable DLC?

It takes paper money to find out. Also, I think it we're all certified cynical cunts, we'd have been run off by now if that weren't the case.

As much as DLC seems to throw a monkey wrench into game functionality, I'd just buy the regular edition now and play the fuck out of it til you can trade it in for the GOTY.

Aonaran, it'd be a PC copy, so no trade in.

Fuck it, buy it anyway. DLC is kinda retarded anyway, it isn't a part of the main story otherwise it would have been in the original game. Play the game as it was intended, THEN fiddle about with wanky, game breaking DLC.

I'll write up a review once I've visited the Strip. I've been playing for about 11 hours and have only now gone to Vegas; there's that much to do.

Also, I've setup my character like I setup my Fallout 1 and 2 characters. Normally it's big guns, small guns and speech for tag skills, but this time I've chosen guns, speech and repair; animals you have no way around blowing away, but I've defused more bad situations (and created quite a few) with my speech skill than with bullets.

In my fallout games I always tag small guns, and speech. The third tag is usually energy guns because I invest points into it over the game so that way by the time I get energy weapons I can just pick them up and go.

I like the fact that it sounds like Obsidian put so much effort into speech, though. That was a part I was sorely disappointed with in Fallout 3.

Yeah, you're pretty much fucking yourself if you don't front load your character with a shit-ton of points in Speech. Science also has a surprising amount of applications and Lockpick finally feels useful.

Yea.. the lack of inginuity of the speech skill in Fallout 3 is what made it horrible. Dialogue was USELESS.. for the most part, there were a few quests that werent written by DERP DERPS and they were quite interesting.
REGARDLESS...i didn't expect New Vegas to be a decent game.. im looking forward to gathering some moneyzz and getting the game so i can playzorz..

Nope, just the actual Fallout 3.

As I wrote on MCA's Facebook page, this is the Fallout I've been waiting 12 years for.

Earlier this evening I crawled through a sewer made of very Bethesda-y generic underground parts. What was significant about it was that it was in a complicated, but sensical layout, and populated by people who were not immediately hostile to me. Even the one group I was sent down there to kill was willing to talk before shooting started (and I was able to avert bloodshed with my speech skill).

The settlements are layed out like they would be in a top-down Fallout; this is both a blessing and a curse. Sometimes it's confusing to navigate various towns, but they all feel genuine and populated. You're not going to find Girdershade: population two.
