Default Fallout: New Vegas - Preview @ The Vault

August 24th, 2010, 14:57
Long time Fallout and RPG community member Ausir has written a two-part preview of Fallout: New Vegas at The Vault. Despite the limited time with the game, it's worth a read to get a different view on the game. Here's a snip from Part 2:
What Iíve seen so far of the game feels pretty much like a cross between Fallout 2 and Fallout 3, with bits of Van Buren also thrown in, which can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it. New Vegas itself, with all its casinos, singing, dancing, gangs and Elvises, feels very much like a new New Reno, even if this time itís grounded more in the 1950s and not in prohibition-era mob and contemporary pop-culture, like in Fallout 2. It might not be that surprising, considering that some of the developers previously worked on Fallout 2, but it will disappoint some that hoped for a return to the more gritty feel of Fallout 1 (although there will likely still be a fair portion of that in the game, just like there was in Fallout 2). The NCR-Caesarís Legion-House triangle also reminds me of the relations between NCR, Vault City and New Reno, which was probably the best side-story in Fallout 2. In general, the writing seemed as good as in Fallout 2 for the most part.
Part 1 and Part 2.
More information.

the line itself something akin to "Robot! Let me in!"
so the tradition of Bethesda's top quality writing remains.

(nah… I know: probably not)


Not enough info there to get a clear picture, but from what little there is it seems promising.
At least it seems some of series' wackiness is restored.

The low skill responsens are meant to be silly, since they're there just to hint at the possibility of a high skill response in the future.
