here's a new article on crafting and survival skills...
--> CLICK ME!! <--

check out this screenshot from the article biggrin.gif...



cool neanderthal-style outfit and OMG, A SPEAR!!
bOnEs
OMG, ima celebrity!!! if anyone has been listening to the bethesda podcasts, you would know they have a Q&A section... well, two questions in (out of like 10) they mention we have a "few", that's right a "few" questions from "bones" on the forum... they then snicker at my name and proceed to answer my questions biggrin.gif...

i was literally taking a shit with the the PC volume blasting through the house, and i nearly took another shit when i heard them say "bones" and snicker laugh.gif...

basically i just asked them if the strip was accessible early on and they said no to an extent but, there's plenty of opportunities to reach the strip early with speed runs and other various things of that nature... basically, it's like the vault 112 thing where you could probably advance the story several hours by going somewhere early, or there's probably secret access tunnels and stuff like that, that you most likely won't know about until much later in the game...

i also asked a semi-boring question about the pre-order items and if they appeared instantly in your inventory, or if you had to do select objectives (a dumb one but hey, they read it)... basically you start the game with those items... if you have a save file already, they will appear in the inventory instantly... so, it sounds like any character you create will have those items...

finally, i asked about the mods and if there were more than the mentioned scopes, clip sizes and bullet types... and yes, there's 3 slots for each weapon to mod but, there's also other mods for things like rate of fire and damage... it didn't sound like there was too much more than that though... i think the different bullet types are probably the biggest mods and probably the one that offers the most customization... but, it sounds like there's plenty of scopes and clip sizes lying around...

this just made my shitty day biggrin.gif...
Massacre
I'm suddenly very excited about the weapon mods. I'm going to take my weathered 10mm pistol and mod that fucker to last me the entire game. I'll get 1-hit kills on Deathclaws by the time I'm done with it.
bOnEs
not sure if it allows you to pull off something like that but, it'll be quite capable i would think... i was just excited to hear my name, fully knowing that only a very very select few actually know who i am... hell, i don't think anyone that knows me even listened to the podcast, none of you did... maybe synch caught that, lol laugh.gif...

Will there be any DLC's ?
Massacre
It's confirmed. They're already working on the DLC.
bOnEs
i don't remember hearing that it was confirmed... but come on, of course they're bringing some DLC... arizona, california, utah, colorado, washington, area 51?? there's a lot of america out that way...
bOnEs
start conjuring up ideas for characters... here's a list of some of the perks available...

also, here's a link to about 6, 2 minute videos from a G4TV spot...

and i kept spotting this crazy outfit in the videos they were showing...

what is that?! a spacey, sci-fi costume with a real working gun?? they kept showing it too, even with it's alien-like weapon roaming around... i don't know what to think, i didn't expect that...
Massacre
Looks like a retextured Alien Blaster to me.

Also; LONG. HAUL. FOR. THE. MOTHER. FUCKING. WIN.
bOnEs
hell yea... i was traveling slow near jury street metro in my "army of darkness" file because i was overpacked... i had to drop a few things, combine a few others, just to allow myself to travel to rivet city to trade off that stuff... if i actually had a place to call home i would of took it there with this perk...

i personally like the jury rigging perk where i can use similar items to repair stuff with... metal armor to repair power armor, combat shotguns to repair the "sturdy caravan shotgun" biggrin.gif...

that guy from the promotional caravan pack screen actually looks a lot like the character i want to build... maybe with more hair...

Thanks for the video links bOnEs, totally cool.

I'm still checking them out, it will take awhile to digest all the great new content. drool.gif

Here's one thing I like, the RobCo Reflectron:

synch and dem bitches biggrin.gif... is your first character going to be another female wastelander that wanders around in her underwear again?! but yea, i hope the character creation screen works better than it did in fallout 3... there were even times where you'd use your robot butler to change your appearance and the screen was blank... hell, every barbershop went blank after a while, forcing you to pick something blindly... yet another problem that bethesda didn't address in patches...

i hope obsidian is more pro-active in cleaning up bugs post-release...

L0L she was never a wastelander.
She IS the warrior female.

While not in her superior armor, of every level including T51 Winterized or Chinese Stealth,
she was only in her underwear for exclusive photo ops. All about conflict with other females...




and the fine art of V-Bagging....






But seriously, you have to notice that in all the videos that were listed in your links,
there is one predominant female character, and she runs really fast, and rather funny.
I took this shot of her running fast/funny because it is under the Los Angeles sign:





Here she is shown for the new "nine iron" and fore!" melee strategies:





Of course there are many other chicks to be obsessed over, such as this one.
While this may only be The Tops Casino cashier, one can only wonder if it will be a
potential buy/sell vendor, similar to the BoS quartermaster Knight Captain Durga.



^Note: The caption, "The Strip Fame Gained!"

Strange that I never got that black screen on the XB360 Elite, or the PC.
My girl was always ensured the perfect hairstyle in salon fashion, from beginning to robot servant.
Even that ghoul named "Snowflake" in the Museum of History Underworld was able to do her up.

Here may be an issue you like bOnEs, such as the possible new version of a Mr.Burke:




^Like you have a faction option to blow up the entire Las Vegas Strip!



Seen that guy in the weird space ship costume, personally I can't get into it.
Maybe if it has some weird Area 51 unlimited armor abilities I will like it,
but personally I think it looks like a novelty 1950's joke costume.


I like the new "Ironsides" mode, the ability to pull your weapon up to eye view,
like in the Call of Duty series, and aim at your opponent manually in firing:



^That is an option, that you don't have to use, but I like it.



...and what about the "Hardcore Mode" ?
In the videos it says you can opt into/out of it in the beginning of the game,
but if you accept it and finish the game with it completed, you will receive a
very large achievement for completing the game on hardcore mode.
Sounds like completing Rockstar's Manhunt on Hardcore Mode. Me likey.
Maybe the second play through for me though, first play through will be exploration.

Speaking of exploration, looks like we are down to only a week in the USA to wait!
QUOTE (Fallout Wiki)
The game will be released on October 19, 2010 in the US and October 22 in the EU for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.



Daddy needs him some new Fallout to play. I am so fucking stoked, can't wait for this game.
Not that I like all the weird characters or the Vegas strip, but the chance to endlessly explore.
Massacre
Ahem...





Also, this guy claims to be a Best Buy employee in possession of the strategy guide. I'm only skimming the topic, but I would like to point out one outstanding item - He claims that there are 27 quests in the main story, and 73 side quests.

If true, that rules for us side-quest people. Thanks Massacre. Game fucking on. One week to go.
bOnEs
the great thing about new vegas being released soon; synch is back biggrin.gif...

in that pic you posted of the possible new mr. burke, i think that's just your courier character blowing up some C4 planted on the strip... i don't think there's an option to blow up new vegas... and if there is, i don't think obisidian would reveal it in a preview video... there is a satellite weapon in this game that rains down destruction from space for you though... i can't wait to see it in action biggrin.gif...

and i agree about the alien costume... i too think it's some novelty item from a vegas shop... but i am not so sure about the weapon... it works so, i don't think that is a novelty item...

i have been reading and watching numerous new videos and article across the web but, i have been treading extra careful because i don't want to see or read a bunch of spoilers... i've avoided the video on the G4TV exclusive quest they had the chance to show everyone... it's some "where's the beef"-like named quest... bestbuy had an hour long launch preview that showed numerous areas and stuff... i found myself skipping forward a lot because they were revealing a couple quests and wanted to show everyone the jungle vault... whew, almost ran into a bunch of spoilers with that video biggrin.gif...

-----------------------------------------

i finished my army of darkness file last night... it would of been cool to see more happen when i destroyed the book but, i just pretended that the dunwich building started to crumble apart and i had to run out of it... and when i made it outside, it began to sink into the ground and disappear... but, destroying the book didn't send ash back to his time... basically, the world was nearing it's end anyway and destroying the book couldn't reverse time, it just stop it from the evil dead ever happening again... he is forced to live out this apocalypse...

so, now he's stuck in the post-apocolyptic future with his boomstick, auto axe and flamer... yea, he found the flamer on his journey to the dunwich building and found it to be quite the zombie killer biggrin.gif... now he's back chilling in smith casey's garage, oblivious to the vault below him since it makes no sense to find his father in this story... he's from the past...

and that my friends is how i end my fallout 3 experience... on a fun journey to the dunwich building from point lookout... and i finally played a melee-oriented character to the end... i did have a sniper rifle with me though but, with hardly any ammo so i didn't feel the need to use it often... it was mostly the auto-axe and the double-barreled shotgun... with the occasional grenade mixed in...

--------------------------------

3 fucking days to go!! 4 if you count today since it's just starting for me... i'll start a new topic in a couple days and close this one out... this turned into a 19 page pre-game discussion... i think we could use a new topic to discuss the game in...

Just got the GS text on my cell, going Monday night after 10PM to pay the full amount.
Then the game will be available at 12:01AM Tuesday(midnight). I won't be taking the Wednesday
off to play like I used to do on opening day, but will pick it up after work.
Also release day is like huge trade-in bonuses here if you want to get rid of old games.
In the end I just got the boring old vault version at GameStop, I don't need any fancy stuff.
After all, just having new adventures will be good. Look how long we made FO3 last!

I finished up my Fallout 3 file by making sure, all the remaining inhabitants of
Tenpenny Towers and the Underworld are wearing Enclave Hellfire armor. biggrin.gif

All except the inter active characters like Michael the vendor, Tulip, Sydney, Charon, Winthrop.
Didn't leave many stones unturned, found all the hidden Enclave camps, and golly gosh
there sure are a lot of them. I thought about making a map but never did. The way I marked
them was by of course looting everything but then blowing up their radio thing, which keeps
burning even after you've left. So it's like a smoke signal on all the camps, maybe 20 or so.

In closing, but never burying, our Fallout 3 world, here are the locations of some of the Hellfire Camps:

1) Hill over looking the Roach King

2) Overpass above Seneca Station

3) Overpass near the Regulator HQ

4) The valley just below the Talon controlled SatCom Array

5) Behind a cyclone fence up above the Armory where you get the T51-B armor

6) Well hidden under an over pass, due south of Fort Independence, north of Tenpenny Towers

7) Girdershade valley behind Nuka Cola girl's house (Always 2 Deathclaws that you can't control as well)

8) On the road north of Fort Independence - with Wastelanders, and fighting Raiders

9) In the crater ruins west of Fort Bannister (Also where you get the Alien Ammo)

10) Small station south of Canterbury Commons (with key)

11) Near the above, but more south west of Wheaton Armory

12) In a cul-de-sac neighborhood south of National Guard Depot

13) Near Megaton, down on the water by all the Mirelurk eggs.

14) South of Springvale, where an Enclave Vertibird can spawn. (Always there for me)

...and that is the short list from memory.



Looking forward to hearing all about your adventures in Fallout: New Vegas cool.gif

why does walmart.com still say it's processing my order?! shouldn't it be shipping by now?! i am unfamiliar with walmart, this is the first time i ordered something from their website but, it's suppose to be on my doorstep tomorrow... maybe it's shipped overnight or something...

either way, if i don't get a "shipped" confirmation email today, i will consider going to the rental store tomorrow morning and renting this game for at least a day, just in case i don't get it tomorrow in the mail... better safe than sorry, i am not about to miss out, i took a 1/2 day from work on tuesday and i have all day wednesday off... i don't mind paying a couple bucks renting it just to make sure i am playing this on my vacation...

fuck you microsoft... buying exclusive DLC rights for 6 months has got to stop... NOW!!!! i can't believe bethesda agreed to this again... once again, they pissed on half their fans... doing this is not going to make me buy a 360, you idiots... quit thinking exclusive DLC moves systems... it didn't work for fallout 3, nor did it work for the liberty city episodes...

i'd still rather have a PS3... exclusive DLC isn't enough to make me wish i had a 360... i'm upset but, i'll get over it... plus new vegas is HUGE!!! i'll probably still be on my first playthrough when they release the DLC... i won't even be ready for it... it's best to just wait until sometime next year to play them... they're probably almost unplayable anyways with all the bugs, just like the fallout 3 DLC... i can't believe how many times my system locked up playing through the add-ons... i can't even count them all...

fuck you micro$oft... i won't join the darkside because you purcha$ed the rights to my favorite games' DLC... i can patiently wait like i did with fallout 3... i'll have other games to tide me over like buying just cause 2, the sims 3, little big planet 2, and something else i know i am forgetting about...
PabloHoneyOle
I'll be sure to let you know how the DLC is.
bOnEs
you do that... just don't go spoiling anything because, i'll be playing it next year... i spoiled myself a bit with the fallout 3 DLC but, i managed to stay away from everything about the GTA IV add-ons and that totally paid off... i am going to try my best to stay away from anything new vegas related when it comes to the DLC... i want to be just as surprised...

I don't know about walmart.com.....

Just went to pay the remaining amount on my New Vegas.

Turns out I can pick it up on Tuesday (tomorrow), not Wednesday.
So since my weekends are Monday and Tuesday, I will get to play for a day before going back to work.

The guys at GameStop are stoked as well. What I didn't know or didn't remember,
was that the special stuff like the vault suit and health canteen can't be found in the game.

Your order will probably be shipped to you on time, bOnEs, they just have it marked as pending or whatever.

I have to agree, and keep in mind I was a devout follower/user of ONLY the Playstation for years.
Other than the PC, had never used XBox consoles at all. One needs to actually feel it to believe it.

I was pretty surprised that I could pick up the 360 controller so fast with GTA:IV.
For years all I had used was the PS 1 and 2, and the PC of course.

Now I endorse the 360 Elite, and of course Marshall Amps for guitar players. cool.gif

I won't be waiting, I always get the DLC's the day they are released on XBLive.
No bugs here, man, no locking up, etc.
Look at what you just said. I've had no problems at all with the DLC's.
My friend, you REALLY need to join us on the Dark Side.

We all hate M$, not just you. On one hand you want to slam M$,
where we had no bugs on the DLC's, on the other, you swear by PS3 and had tons of bugs.

I almost want to give you an Elite as a present, it's just less hassle when you want a friend to play.
And we WANT you to play amigo, we don't like that you have grief over these issues.
It's like, painful er something to see a bro going through that.

if you want to give me a 360 then i'll happily take it biggrin.gif... i am just not spending money on another system when i greatly enjoy my PS3... you talk like the 360 version didn't have the same issue but it did... maybe not as much as the PS3 but, they were present... you must of had great luck with it never locking up but, everyone i know IRL had issues with it locking up... more so with the PS3 version...

but who cares, i can wait biggrin.gif... i waited for the fallout 3 add-ons, i can wait for the new vegas ones... at least the actual game itself wasn't a timed-exclusive... at least i get to play the original new vegas with everyone else... getting the add-ons later than xboxers just means it extends the playability of this game when i can pop it in a year form now and get a new experience...

------------------

about walmart - this still has me worried though... so much so that i am going to rent this tomorrow for one night on my way to work just to be sure... i don't care about not having the pre-order caravan pack right away, i am just concerned about being able to start playing when i get home... and if walmart isn't going to confirmed it shipped then, i am going to look into other avenues to take precautions... plus, renting something for a night only costs a couple of bucks anyways... i got enough extra money these days...

i just don't want to sit at home all day on tuesday waiting for new vegas only to find out that i won't be getting it until wednesday... i don't want to even run into that situation... and i get into the rental store early enough to be able to rent any new release anyways... better safe than sorry is how i see it... some kid that was banking on renting this will get screwed out of getting it but, like i really give a shit... this game is probably more important to me than him anyways...

Don't want to scare you, but when I've ordered from Walmart in the past, they shipped on the release day, meaning I didn't get my game until late Wednesday. Hopefully they have rectified this, but I will never order a game online that I can't pick up IN STORE at the midnight release or the actual release day. I got burned bad with GTAIV.

the website seems pretty confident but the funny thing is, i know it's not shipping from my local walmart, it's shipping from a regional distribution center, which is probably in kentucky somewhere... and the fact that it hasn't even left the building tells me it's either an overnight ship, or i won't get it until wednesday...

yea, i'm renting this tomorrow morning, it's settled... fuck little billy, who took the day off from school for a fake illness and had his mom go to the rental store to pick this up, only to find out they're all out and now he's stuck playing MW2 all afternoon biggrin.gif...

Why the fuck does Microsoft not understand that it can still release the DLC for PC at the same time? Games for Windows Live is still Microsoft.

Fuck it, I'm not changing my preorder, Fallout is better on PC than 360 or PS3.

Maybe, because New Vegas is using Steam as DRM, so Microsoft wouldn't get any money from it.

Fuck. And fuck Steam. I'm not buying shit through Steam, I'll pick up the 360 version when it's DLC time. GOTY for PC will come out soon enough.

I have a shitty connection, I can't be downloading tons of shit. I don't mind having discs around anyway, I make things with the cases. Right now I have a tower I built to boost my mobile broadband signal, and a small wall built in front of one of my windows to keep glare off of my monitor.

I picked up a regular copy of Fallout: NV last night at a Gamestop midnight release, even though I didn't preorder. I paid them at 1130 and stuck around until midnight, got my copy and went home and went to sleep. I was exhausted. There's a sealed copy just waiting for me to get home. While I am at work today I am going to call around and see if anyone has a copy of the collector's edition in stock.

Anyway, I created an official gameplay thread.

i changed the topic title so we don't get it confused with the other one biggrin.gif... walmart officially states it's in transit to my location and should arrive by 3:00 pm... i should be getting off work at 2 but, i am still taking precautions and renting it... i'll take the rental back this afternoon if i get the game...

i'm fucking stoked though!! today has finally arrived!! there's about a dozen reviews out there too... i am getting the same general vibe from all of them... they say it's every bit of fallout 3, including all the bugs... and it seems to be that the 360 right now is the one that seems to be crashing... i haven't heard a PS3 reviewer say anything about that yet... but basically i am reading that, if yuo expected obisidian to overhaul the franchise, you were wrong... if you loved fallout 3, your going to love new vegas as it feels like a hundred hour expansion pack biggrin.gif... and that's the best news so far... more of the same is not a bad thing in this case...

You won't appreciate New Vegas without playing Fallout 3. Truth.

The hype for this game is infectious and I'm feeling really excited as you lot are. It's true I've never played any of the previous Fallout's but I reckon it wouldn't be a bad idea to start with NV. The only way I can appreciate the series so far is by reading what you guys have posted over the years, and boy do I feel left out.
So, is it worth me purchasing a copy of NV or not?

Called a Gamestop down the road from my office, they had 1 extra Collector's Edition. I took a 10AM lunch break and went to pick it up.

Fucking awesome. I'm going to sell a few of the individual poker chips on eBay along with my Classic Armor pack. The book is amazing - worth the collector's edition.

Also, the Lucky 38 token is my new card protector for when I play poker.

I'll try and post pictures later. Can't wait to get home and start playing.

dude, family video did it right, there was 6 copies available to rent... but hopefully when i get home, it's sitting on my porch anyways... either way, i'm right on schedule to play this shortly after 2pm...

@marney - for fuck's sake, buy new vegas... so you didn't play fallout 3, big deal... if you want to join in on the fun then pick up new vegas... there's going to be like 6 of us playing this and discussing it... you might as well join in on the fun... you can always go back and play fallout 3 at another point in time... new vegas has a 1% tie in to fallout 3 and that's it.... so, you won't be lost when it comes to the story as it's entirely new... you'll be just as lost as me since i never played fallout 1 and 2 and new vegas has more tie-ins with those games...

get it and join in the conversation... it's going to be a fun few months biggrin.gif...

The only thing I was worried about was thought of it being a kind of continuing story but seeing as it's completely new I'll probably pick it up at the weekend. cool.gif

The fuck. There's no Collector's Edition for PC, I had to get the 360 version.

I'm going to go read the graphic novel while taking an anger shit ( < trademarked), then I'll get into the game.

The book is going on my coffee table. I will murder my wife if she spills a drink on it.

The cover reminds of the cover from that Green Day album in OPX's sig.

I wouldn't really pay extra for something I'd read once tbh. Did it with GTA4. Should of just roughed through it with an anger shit™ .

The exclusive DLC's are selling for 20 dollars on ebay.. tempting but i'm keeping mine. Also, I'm surprised at the high quality of the collectors edition items. The poker chips are high quality like real poker chips not some cheap plastic which is what i was expecting.
