Fallout: New Vegas Dev Diary Focuses on 'The Strip'

By Xav de Matos, Oct 14, 2010 8:45am PDT The latest developer diary for Obsidian's Fallout: New Vegas focuses on the "landmark" that is the Vegas "Strip."

Gamers should expect a plethora of quest lines throughout the big city and can even stop in to make a few bets with their hard-earned bottle caps. If that's not enough, you can always try having multiple conversations with Mr. New Vegas--voiced by Wayne Newton--and hope he eventually breaks into song.

Fallout: New Vegas is set to launch on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 19, 2010.

  • What the hell is going on in these developers imagination?!?
    The "casinos" look more uninhabited than any wasteland you could imagine. There are about 30 roulette tables standing in an empty hall (yes a hall not a room). It looks like some dev studio with casino tables instead of desks. Have they ever been to a casino? Even when there is nobody playing, there are operators walking around, there is ALWAYS action in a casion. And usually there is a ton of people. Somehow it looks like they were technically limited to Duke Nukem 3D standards, but we have 2010 now.
    I don´t expect this game to be any better than Fallout 3. Although Fallout 3 was fun to play and quite addicting, its story was rather uninteresting and boring. All scripted action (including introsequence) was awesome. All repetitive rat shooting was not only boring but annoying like when you had to step into a garden and were forced to fight a pokemon.
    I expected Fallout 3 to be highly original but they failed by trying to implement an "open world" which would have served as the scenery it was well enough to develop a nice linear shooter.

    I will play this but this looks like some early beta, not a finished game.




  • I loved Fallout 3 so much and I usually piss on single player games. With the help of mods, I've got to be approaching 200 hours. I sometimes wait for a Game of the Year compilation for some titles but this is one game I'll probably break down on because I really do crave some more Fallout content and more areas to explore and weirdos to meet. Bethesda showed the entire industry how to do DLC but I hope Obsidian releases even more. They could release 8-12 DLC packs for this game and I'd buy them all.

    Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls 5 PLEASE! We are really coming up on the due date for another Elder Scrolls. Where is it?!?
