Fallout New Vegas is out on Friday 22nd October.

My favourite game on the 360 is Oblivion. Fallout is being published by the same company Bethesda Softworks, so I am expecting good things. Although it is not the same developers. I would have to say the my favourite game type is an RPG as well, which is why I am looking forward to this as much as Black Ops.

Is anyone else getting this?

I get bored/lost in those games easily. Although I am a big RPG fan, just not so much that type. Brother will get it but I won't play it!

There hasn't been a whole lot released about Fallout. However one of the main changes is that they have included aim down sight. So it is more like a FPS as well as all the other features (i.e. VATS).

I don't imagine Fallout to be everyone's type of game. I decent RPG/Sandbox game is exectly my type of game. Spending hours going no where and not even playing the main missions... Setting off a nuke and watching deformed monsters get there heads blown off! Brilliant!!!

Yeah that mini nuke launcher in fallout 3 was cool , remember on xmas day i was playing it and my mrs was watching and i picked it up and thought i'll save this for something special, only to return from the toilet and she's fucking launching the cunt into a bunch of raiders. lol

I spent most of my time in 3rd person for some reason in fallout 3. I loved the VATS system man it was cool

I was referring to the big fucking nuke at megaton, that you could blow up and wipe the city off the face of the map, literally!

However the mini nuke launcher was/is great fun. Even when you run out of nuke's you can then start shooting junk and teddy bears!

Another addition to New Vegas is that you can add up to 3 attachments to guns. i.e. if you find some binoculars, you can then attach them to a hunting rifle to make it a sniper rifle.

Also, there is apparently twice as many weapons in New Vegas than fallout 3... One week to go!

Only crazy people would choose MoH over BO. At least fallout is a different type of game

That's lucky as there probably isn't enough room for Demo AND Simy on the couch!

Once xmas comes about most of the clan will have time off and will all be playing together. That would be the worst time to get a new game that will take up lots of your xbox time.

I'm getting it before BO is released so that it doesn't effect BO as much... I'm the one with the right priorities! My missus would probably shoot me if she saw this post though!!!

I may as well use this thread as a personal progress report and at least keep you all up to date. Fallout was released in America Tuesday and I have read up on some of the reviews... All but one of the reviews I read gave this 8 out of 10 or better.

One review I read gave it 6 out of 10, but that reviewer seemed like he had some deep hatred against Obsidian as apparently they fucked up Knights Of The Old Republic II, which he does comment on in the review of Fallout! Bitter as a Lemon...

Most of the reviews however did make some reference to the amount of bugs in the game. Monsters falling through the floor, so you can't kill them or a guard pacing back and forth 20 feet in the air, who you need to talk to to get into the building he's guarding. One quote that stood out though was that "I would prefer to play an unpolished gem, than a polished turd and FNV is definitely a gem!". So everyone that is putting this game on there xmas list might be better off as they should have patched all this by then. My pre-order has already been posted according to Play.com.

Having said all that, all reviewers have said that the storyline is much stronger and in-depth than Fallout 3's "got to find my father" cliche. They all said that the game is highly addictive. One reviewer had played the game for 35 hours and had only just reached the vegas strip and had only completed 3 out of 20 of the main missions.

Simy I wouldn't even bother trying to kill the giant scorpions yet. You need armor piercing bullets or an absolute shitload of ammo to kill them. The other scorpions however are very killable. Iv completed the missions in the first town and now everyone there seems to love me. I helped the guy in the petrol station to kill the powder gang that raids the town. Wondered of into the wasteland and iv found some sort of prison which is full of those powder gangers and apparently there's a guy incarcerated there who is worth finding. That's where I'm up to, I'm lvl 3 at the minute I think!

Yeah i got to the prison done some missions for the leader Eddie, then he sent me to Primm, so i killed all the raiders and convicts there, then went back to the prisons with the NCR boys and destroyed teh place lol. Cant find the guy there i need him to become sherrif of primm.

Really amazing game. I love the handgun and teh hollow point rounds are amazin lol. The Powder guys hate me now Razz.

Spent hours doing nothing last night lol. I also have a perk that makes me a cannibal, i can eat dead people to get health.

I killed that Eddie, they all started attacking me when i went into the admin office. I think me and you are playing the game the opposite way to each other lol. Sounds to me you'v sided with the powder gang.
