[ Game -> Preview ] - More info on Game: Fallout: New Vegas

Tipster Nathan sent in a couple of links to scans from the British mag Game Master's article on Fallout: New Vegas. Nothing new at all, but have a look anyway while you can:

We seem to be at the point now where the only new news is actually just a series of cock-ups on the part of the gaming journalists. Playstation magazine claimed that Big and Small guns had been merged, but they also claimed that Obsidian added a *new* Energy Weapons skill. You know, because Energy Weapons haven't been around since the start, right?

"This is more closely aligned with the PC originals - sharing characters and story elements."

I don't know if this is old news or what, but has anyone heard if there's going to be recurring characters from the first and second fallouts? Travesty! Bethesda's already raped the continuity, now they plan on raping the memory.

EDIT: I decided to go over these scans in detail.

"Super mutants are back - so expect to learn more about their origins."

Wait, so there's a different story than the one we learned in Fallout 1?

Apart from the usual crap, that's all that stuck out. To the second page.

"excellent VATS system"

"The opening is much less laborious than the birth-childhood-vault slog of Fallout 3"

Maybe if they made the opening interesting and the characters less transparent, it wouldn't be such a "slog," and players wouldn't want to "get out into the action quicker."

"The most noticeable difference in New Vegas however is the extent to which your actions affect the world."

That's what they said about Fallout 3 isn't it? Why can't they just call a spade a spade and say, "Bethesda is trying to do stuff in this game which just isn't possible with their shitty engine."

"GM hates: no dog companion? :sad face:"

...learn the origins of the supermutants...

Y'know, when I was a kid, I wanted to work for a games magazine. I thought they were the coolest people in the world.

Or just THE story. God knows all the twitch gamers into FO3 couldn't survive more than two minutes into Fallout 1.

Origin of the FO3 super mutants. They're not the same.

We know the origin of FO3 super mutants too...they were part of experiments being conducted by the immortal children of Little Lamplight.

They never explained why FO3's mutants were kidnapping humans to turn them into more super mutants or how they were even organized.

What we do know however is that FO3's EEV is heavily modified gonorrhea which made their dingdongs fall off leaving a black crater between their legs and made them barely smarter than a goat effectively turning them all into girls. The fact that 99% of east coast mutants will attack you on sight is a side-effect of PMS.

Exhibit A.



Now we know both the smarter "male" type west coast super mutants and "female" type east coast ones will run into each other in the state of Nevada where prostitution is legal.

This had to all be part of the master's plan, the debauchery that will ensue from such a meeting would 1) fulfill his tentacular fantasies and 2) create a new strain of Super FEV/EEV/AIDS that would produce a new super mutant capable of breeding with anything and Copyright infrigement 2010 Bethesda Softworks LLC, a ZeniMax Media company.

That is easily explained as well: Bad writing and design.

Combined with an utter lack of care.

If that's the explanation given in New Vegas, I might buy it out of principle.
