Fallout: New Vegas Coming This Fall, Trailer Released 100

Bethesda announced today that Fallout: New Vegas is scheduled for release sometime this fall, and they released a trailer as well. Details are scant yet on the official site, but they had this to say: "Experience all the sights and sounds of fabulous New Vegas, brought to you by Vault-Tec, America's First Choice in Post Nuclear Simulation. Explore the treacherous wastes of the Great Southwest from the safety and comfort of your very own vault: Meet new people, confront terrifying creatures, and arm yourself with the latest high-tech weaponry as you make a name for yourself on a thrilling new journey across the Mojave wasteland. A word of warning, however — while Vault-Tec engineers have prepared for every contingency,* in Vegas, fortunes can change in an instant. Enjoy your stay.

    But Obsidian's only done sequels. Sequels that didn't live up to the originals(KotOR 2 and NWN 2). I agree that Black Isle was a great company and made some great games, but the same magic was not present in Obsidian, or Troika for that matter.

    Its modded down due to the form it was put accross in, not the content of the comment.

    Simply put, if you can complain about something without having to resort to swearing, your point is more likely to be heard, and concidered as valid. Start swearing and your just another 12 year old who managed to get on the net before growing a pair.

    Maybe it was buggy on the PC, I dont know, I played it on the 360 and it was/is amazing. It has lots of bugs in the DLC, even on the 360 version. I got annoyed at times at the random freezes but my enjoyment of the game itself has over come these short fallings.

    KOTOR 2 was terrific, up until near the end when everything fell apart because it was just not finished, because the publisher insisted they just ship immediately to make Christmas rather than actually writing an ending. Hence the long optional dialogues at the end with Darth Traya filling in a bunch of loose ends of the plot for you. Otherwise, it was essentially Planescape: Torment in a Star Wars setting.
