Fallout : New Vegas

Welcome to Las Vegas, ooopsss I mean, New Vegas!

I'm a huge fan of RPG style videogame. Usually we hage a dungeon type RPG, raiding the castle, killing dragon, bla bla bla...... But this, this is different. Fallout is different from others, I can say. A deep story set on a post-apocalyptic world, now crossing over Nevada into the Mojave desert. Enter Fallout : New Vegas.

Fallout returns to the post-apocalyptic wastelands of the west with a fresh perspective. You are a courier who has been shot, robbed of your cargo, and left for dead in a shallow grave. You somehow survive and venture out to settle the score, but the world is turning to hell around you. The New California Republic is struggling against the Roman-inspired Caesar’s Legion while the Brotherhood of Steel, Children of the Apocalypse, Boomers, and the numerous families of New Vegas are all looking for their cuts. It’s a Fallout reunion, and you’re smack dab in the middle of it all. Looks simple? Think again.

No, I'm not here to exterminate bugs. I'm here to exterminate you.
The story continues some parts of the Fallout and Fallout 2 stories, and is largely unrelated to the one in Fallout 3, seeing as the 2 games' settings are on opposite sides of the country. Fallout: New Vegas takes place in 2281, four years after the events of Fallout 3, and thirty-nine years after Fallout 2. The New California Republic plays a major part in the game's story, being in a three-way struggle amongst the Caesar's Legion slavers, and the mysterious Mr. HouseThe Courier, the player's character, was meant to deliver a package from Primm to New Vegas. However, the Courier is intercepted by the Great Khans and Benny, who shoots him and takes the package, leaving the Courier for dead in a shallow grave. The Courier is later found by a robot named Victor, and is sent to the settlement of Goodsprings, where Doctor Mitchell saves his life. After the Courier is given some medical tests, the player is pushed back into the open world, and the quest, Ain't That a Kick in the Head, begins. Fallout: New Vegas has a definitive ending, unlike Fallout 3. Endings for Fallout: New Vegas, are dependent on what actions the player took via quests during the game, with separate endings being shown for each major location, political faction, and recruitable companion. There is no 'good' ending for sure, nor a 'bad' ending. The stories are all up to you to decide.

A hole in one! In your skull!
As a gear-junkie, New Vegas is a dream come true. You can find most, if not all, of the old weapons alongside newcomers, including a lever-action shotgun, 9mm SMG, and a grenade machinegun (you read it correctly). Many weapons have mods that can be applied, such as scopes and larger magazines. If crafting is your thing, you can create your own ammunition, food, and chems. Crafting isn’t necessary to survival, but it is a welcome touch for players looking to immerse themselves deeper in the world.
My companion Boone, just get boned.....
Hardcore mode awaits the truly diehard fans and has me craving a Fallout MMO more than ever. It’s a mode that requires you to eat and sleep Fallout, literally. You must keep yourself hydrated, well-rested, and properly fed at all times, or risk death. If that’s not realistic enough for you, ammunition now counts toward your weight limit and broken bones require proper medical attention. Stimpaks and Rad-away takes effects gradually, and the enemy is tougher. Quite a drag, isn't it?

Beware my death dealing sunlight generated particle cannon, The Archimedes! Let them fry.....
Looking purely at the new features of Fallout: New Vegas, I want to entrench myself in the Mojave wasteland and never return. Obsidian Entertainment has bolstered the series with an array of fantastic additions, including crafting and Hardcore mode, but it’s hard to appreciate them in light of incessant bugs and unfulfilling quests. Fallout: New Vegas was a valiant effort, and I sure that players will once again venture in a dark, (although greener), radiated world of Fallout. Because war, war never changes.......

See you in Vegas!
