I play it on both. I love PC mods, and that's why I am getting FNV on the console first so I will not be enticed to install mods as I want to experience the core game first.

Fallout: New Vegas preorders scavenging in-game gear

* By Tom Magrino, GameSpot
* Posted Jun 10, 2010 2:03 pm PT

Bethesda details retailer-specific digital bonuses for prepurchasers of Obsidian-developed action RPG, due this fall.

Obsidian Entertainment's Fallout: New Vegas might not yet have a hard launch date, but publisher Bethesda Softworks is already gearing up for the game's Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC retail release. In May, the publisher announced the New Vegas Collector's Edition, one that will include, among other pack-ins, branded poker chips, playing cards, and Dark Horse Comics' game-based graphic novel All Roads.

Today, Bethesda announced a range of retailer-specific incentives for those who preorder any version of the action role-playing game. While the particulars of each preorder pack are different, they all include a range of in-game gear, including armor, weapons, and supplies.

The Classic Pack will be available at GameStop, and it includes the armored Vault 13 suit, a Vault 13 canteen, a weathered 10mm pistol, and five stimpaks. Amazon preorderers gain the Tribal Pack, which contains tribal raiding armor, a broad machete, five bleak venom doses, and 10 throwing spears.

New Vegas bears a striking resemblance to the old.

Those who pick up the game through Wal-Mart or Steam get the Caravan Pack, offering lightweight leather armor, a sturdy caravan shotgun, four repair kits, and a pair of binoculars. Lastly, the Mercenary Pack is available through Best Buy, and it brings with it lightweight metal armor, a mercenary's grenade rifle, three super stimpaks, and three doctors bags.

The follow-up to 2008's Fallout 3, New Vegas is set in the Mojave Wasteland and casts players in the role of a courier who gets shot in the head over a package and is left for dead. After recovering, players will be free to roam the desert, exploring new areas, modifying weapons, and getting wrapped up in the larger conflict between the New California Republic and the slave-trading Caesar's Legion.

Fallout: New Vegas is currently scheduled to ship this fall. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage. "


Looks like they are bringing back items from F1 and 2, eg, doctor bags, super stimpacks...

I think I am pre-ordering from Amazon and this is what you get:

"About a month ago, we asked all of you to start submitting your Fallout: New Vegas questions to be answered by the team at Obsidian. Today we're kicking it off with 12 answers. We'll be posting more questions next week.

You guys submitted tons of great questions. The following questions were answered by Obsidian Entertainment's Josh Sawyer -- Project Director on New Vegas.

And away we go!

Will perks be available every level, every other level, every third level, etc.?
From OakTable via Bethesda Blog

Josh Sawyer: We have shifted the perk rate to a game setting within the GECK. We currently have it set to one perk every two levels. Internal feedback to it has been mixed, so it's too early to say if we will keep it at this setting.

Will we be able to level past 20? Or 30?
From Justin via Facebook

JS: Our level cap is 30.

Will the PC retail game be able to be activated via Steam?
From @litrock via Twitter

Jason Bergman, Senior Producer at Bethesda Softworks: Yes. Fallout: New Vegas will fully utilize the Steamworks SDK. This means that retail PC copies will activate via Steam. We are also using Steam for achievements and other features (but not multiplayer, of course. FNV remains a single player only game).

I’m assuming that you are reusing some of the animations from Fallout 3. Have you done anything to improve these or are they going to stay the same way that they did in Fallout 3?
From Zearox via Bethesda Blog

Josh Sawyer: We started our animation work by determining what new animations we needed, what existing animations we thought needed revision, and what else we could revise. We have already changed some of the core combat animations (for example, all first-person firearm aim animations have been revised) as well as creature animations (our "West Coast" Super Mutants have new idles, walk, and run cycles).

Can you confirm 'Dogmeat' will be a companion?
From Barry via Facebook

JS: The Mojave Wasteland is full of dogs. Who knows who will want to be your pal this time around?

You hinted at multiple ammo choices being available. How deep are you going with that? Will that only be regular and AP ammo?
From DanishMIKI via Bethesda Blog

JS: What ammunition sub-types are available to the player depends on the base type. Not all ammunition types have standard, hollow point, and armor piercing variants. For example, there is no armor piercing .22 ammunition. In addition to "standard" ammunition, hollow point and armor piercing are the two most common variants. 20 gauge and 12 gauge shotguns have slug variants in addition to the standard (buckshot). Some calibers also have +P (overpressure) rounds, military surplus rounds (bought in bulk, increased power, increased wear on the weapon), or hand loads. Hand loads are always built at reloading benches in the world and can take a number of different forms. For example, you can craft .308 Jacketed Soft Points or .45-70 Gov't Semi-Wadcutters with very "hot" loads.

Energy Weapons and Explosives can also use ammunition subtypes. Some energy ammunition has "over charge" or "bulk" variants, the former being high-powered but damaging to the weapon and the latter being cheap but under-powered. 25mm grenades (used in the grenade machinegun) have a high explosive variant and 40mm grenades have an incendiary variant.

Are the Super Mutants in the screen shots graphical stand ins? Will they eventually have the unique appearance of the Mariposa Super Mutants from FO1 & FO2 (as seen in talking head dialogues), or will they appear as they do in the screen shots, almost identical to FO3 Vault 87 mutants?
From Chadious Maximus via Bethesda Blog

JS: Our early Super Mutant and Nightkin models were placeholders. All of them have been re-textured, slightly remodeled, and re-animated to more closely resemble the Mariposa Super Mutants.

Will the ending slides for all of the settlements return in New Vegas?
From @B3nt0k via Twitter

JS: We may not hit every single group or location, but our ending is pretty comprehensive in what it covers.

What other creatures are in New Vegas, and is it possible to see concept art of a new creature?
From Richard via Facebook

JS: One of my favorites is the Cazador. Cazadores are mutated tarantula hawk wasps that have found their way north from the Sonoran Desert. They aren't very durable, but their poison is deadly and they are very creepy looking.
Cazador Concept Art

Will each faction have a radio station?
From @hawker101 via Twitter

JS: Not every faction has a radio station, but I hope people are happy with the radio stations, DJs, and music selection we have.

Will there be any sort of party involved? A few companions to tag along?
From Rui via Facebook

JS: Yes. The player may have one humanoid and one non-humanoid companion at any given time.

Will you get to meet that badass from the teaser trailer?
From @Xenoliath via Twitter

JS: Eventually.

What does Steamworks mean to you? Senior producer Jason Bergman explains:

"Fallout: New Vegas uses Steamworks for achievements and other features (such as friends lists, cloud storage of user preferences and so on). Use of Steam will be mandatory at retail. So what does that mean? We’ve implemented Steamworks in as light and unobtrusive a way as possible. Yes, you will have to install Steam when you install Fallout: New Vegas if you don’t already have it. And yes, you will have to be online at the time of that initial install. However you can install the game on as many systems as you want (with no restrictions!), and you do not have to be online to play the game after your initial activation. Not only that, but once the game has activated on Steam, you can throw out the game DVD entirely and just download the game over Steam. If you don’t even have a DVD drive, you can just take the CD-Key from the box, enter it into Steam, and download it without ever using the disc at all.

For those concerned, this will have no affect on mod development whatsoever. Modders will still be able to create and distribute their plugins the same way they have in the past.

We made the decision to use Steam after looking at all the various options out there and decided that it provided the best, least intrusive experience for PC gamers. We think you’ll agree." "

AWESOME! This is what I asked for on the last page.

Cool that there are actual ammo varieties, but I wish they would bring back the damage and armor system from fallout 1 & 2, it's so ridiculously deep and complex compared to Oblivion/Fallout 3.

Fallout: New Vegas irradiating October

* By Tor Thorsen, GameSpot
* Jun 14, 2010 4:16 am PT
* 58 comments

Obsidian's semi-sequel to Bethesda's hit RPG Fallout 3 ships October 19 in North America, October 22 in Europe; new trailer inside.

Although last night's premiere of the Kinect motion-sensing system is hogging the majority of headlines, another development of import for gamers occurred early Monday. Bethesda Softworks has dated Fallout: New Vegas. The semi-sequel to the hit 2008 role-playing game Fallout 3 will ship October 19 in North America, with a European release to follow on October 22. The game will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

Bethesda is betting October will be an optimal relase month for Fallout: New Vegas.

Developed by many veterans of the original Fallout games at Obsidian Entertainment, New Vegas is set in the Mojave Wasteland and casts players in the role of a courier who gets shot in the head over a package and is left for dead. After recovering, players will be free to roam the desert, exploring new areas, modifying weapons, and getting wrapped up in the larger conflict between the New California Republic and the slave-trading Caesar's Legion.

In apparent conjunction with the release date announcement, Bethesda also released a new trailer for Fallout: New Vegas, viewable below. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage, and stay tuned for a fresh look at the post-nuclear RPG later this week, straight from the Electronic Entertainment Expo. "

Well I paid $50 for DLC for F3 that amount to about 8 -10 hours, and this costs $60 for about 80 hours so I say its a deal. I love F3 and more of the same is good for me.

I cannot decide on whether to get the PC or the 360 version. If I knew that they both would get DLC at the same time I would most likely get the PC version. The PC requirements are rather modest:

Part of why I want the console version first is to play the core game without and mods. If I get it on PC there is no way I am gonna be able to resist We'll see what happens, but either way I will end up getting it for the PC.

i only preordered because gamestop was offering an extra 25% on trade-ins toward the purchase of fallout. so i got a whopping 12 dollars and change instead of 10 bucks for trading in dragon age. gamestop fucks you so hard on trade-in value. i really liked the place in winston-salem where i used to trade in games because they gave you more credit, but i no longer live there

Hey everybody, did the news get around
About a guy named Butcher Pete
Oh, Pete just flew into this town
And he’s choppin’ up all the women’s meat

[Chorus]
He’s hackin’ and wackin’ and smackin’
He’s hackin’ and wackin’ and smackin’
He’s hackin’ and wackin’ and smackin’
He just hacks, wacks, choppin’ that meat

Butcher Pete’s got a long sharp knife
He starts choppin’ and don’t know when to stop
All you fellows gotta watch your wifes
‘Cause Pete don’t care who’s meat he chops

[Chorus]

Ever since Peter flew into town
He’s been havin’ a ball
Just cuttin’ and choppin’ for miles around
Single women, married women, old maids and all

[Chorus]

Wakes up in the morning, half past five
Chops from sunrise to sunset
I don’t see how he stays alive
Meat’s gonna be the death of ole Pete, yeah

[Chorus]

The police put Pete in jail
Yes, he finally met his faith
But when they came to pay his bail
They found him choppin’ up his cell mate

[Chorus]

That Butcher Pete is a crazy man
Tries to chop down the wind and the rain
Just hacks on anything he can get
Say, turn this record over, you ain’t heard nothing yet

I don't think they wear off (I know it says worn off) on hardcore mode as much as they replenish health over 10-15 seconds instead of all at once. So you can't open your inventory and get 100% health while you're being blasted by a minigun.

Is this a stand-alone game, or would I need to have a Fallout 3 install?

Games have so many DLC packs nowadays I can't keep up anymore. This game just appeared on my radar today, so I haven't read the details.
