    Fallout: New Vegas Details Emerge

    You can find the original article [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    As the successor to Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas is beginning to become a clearer image in the minds of those interested. While a great deal of information has already been released concerning the game, this is the first I've seen of this particular information.

    - In Fallout: New Vegas, you play the role of a courier who gets shot while attempting to deliver some information. That incident is said to be the where the story takes off.

    - A "hardcore" game option will be accessible, in which players who don't need to go through the various tutorials and simply skip through them, allowing them to get right into the action. On top of that, you will almost have to manage yourself as you do in real life. Monitoring your hunger, hydration levels, and visiting doctors for serious injuries are all part of the hardcore game option. Stimpacks will also only heal you over time. Even better, weight is applied to bullets, meaning you cannot just carry around as much ammunition as you want.

    - The "Companion Wheel" is being introduced, of which you can use to use your companions more effectively during battle, instead of just using the basic commands like keeping together, using weapons, or using melee.

    - New "Grenade Machine Gun" will be introduced.

    - Higher quality morality system will be active, so that certain groups can either praise, fear, or want to kill you.

    What do you guys think about this game? I liked Fallout 3, though I never really got around to playing it a great deal. This game seems to have quite a few new additions, though, that are making me rather eager to get my hands on it.

    At the start of the game your supposed to deliver a message to someone, and then someone attempts to assinate you. Yeah, I read that too lol.

    Apparently there will be different factions in the game, so if you piss of a faction they will dislike you more, but their rival faction will like you more.

    I gotta say I am a huge fan of Fallout 3, It is 100% the best RPG game I have ever played in my life. The fact that Fallout: New Vegas is coming out is going to make me love the game again. The only problems I have with the new features in FNV is that the bullets are actually going to add to your weight. From my perspective I definatley liked having all of my ammo being carried on me so that I would never run out, yeah it will make the game more realistic, but sometimes it's better when games aren't too realistic. I hope there will be a mod for the PS3 for unlimited ammo to be held, this would be sweet. Other than that nice thread.

    Here is a look at the trailer if you have not seen it yet:

    I hope they release a cookable mod for ps3, so we could bring some custom stuff from pc. That would be icing on the cake.

    I do agree with you on the matter concerning realism. It seems that, as technology allows our developers to make realer and realer environments and feels, the focus is shifting from making a unique universe to replicating the real one. While I know it is rather drastic to say so, I simply mean in the sense of weight, health, reactions to the environment etc.

    While it is great that technology allows for developers to make things this complex, I think there are various times, like in this instance perhaps, that realism is making for more of an inconvenience than a pleasure away from reality.

    Do note, if I read the original article correctly, that the weight of the bullets only has relevance in the "hardcore" mode. Therefore I believe that, if you do not play the hardcore mode, you will not have to worry about such things as in Fallout 3.

    I hope that you are right about the bullets being on the hardcore function. If this is so, then it looks as if I will not be touching the hardcore version of the game. Thank you Schaffin you have been a great amount of help to me. :y:

    If i do buy this, I'd have to have two saves. One in hardcore and one not. I'd love trying to be as realistic as possible, but at the same time, I don't wanna have to worry about weight all the time. Does that make sense?

    Game looks incredible. Can't wait til Fall
