Also, is anyone going to try out the hardcore mode (I think that's what it's called). Your ammo weight is taken into consideration and you can carry considerably less equipment. Also, you NEED to stay hydrated and eat. At least, I think that's what I read about it...should be a challenge. Fun nonetheless.

I'm definitely going to try out the hardcore mode. In Fallout 3 it seemed like 99% of my net worth was contained in magically weightless ammunition. That, and food was only good for patching bullet holes. I look forward to taking a "realistic" look at post-apocalyptic life.

Man I'm in trouble when this comes out. If they made an MMO of Fallout or Mass Effect I'd need an intervention.

I had that same thought. A Fallout MMO would be too awesome for me. I would never leave my house...

I already knew about that. As far as I know they canceled it (which is a shame because if it is good it will surpass wow and therefore make both of these bickering companies a ludicrous amount of money.) because interplay didn't hit bathesda's deadline for development and now interplay is being sued for copywright infringement for some reason.

I guess there was a ruling that they could continue to develop Fallout Online until the proceedings made it to court but I don't forsee this game being released any time soon.

Correction!: Fallout Online Lawsuits Ended?

Turns out they are going ahead with it!

I will be playing Hardcore Mode as well

“Hardcore Mode can be turned on or off at any time, although if you want the Hardcore trophy, you have to turn it on when initially prompted and leave it that way all the way to the end of the game. When it’s on, players will have to eat, sleep, and drink water every day. In addition, ammo has weight, companions can die, Stimpaks heal over time, and damaged limbs can only be healed with a Doctor’s Bag.

While you can fast travel in Hardcore Mode, you can’t if the time it would take to get you there would result in the player dying from dehydration/exhaustion/starvation.”

So far so good, I haven't gotten deep enough to tell you my true feelings.

However I am the most interesting man in the Mojave.

Doesn't seem like NukaColas and food are helping my HP the way they did I missing something?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure how I feel about mixing ingredients and stuff - seems like they brought this over from Oblivon. I blew it off in that game too

Haha - I get a lot of anxiety from making up a character
I'm always second guessing my decsions. Seriously, I agonize over choosing Perks n stuff lol So far so good! I want that purdy penthouse pronto!

Lys, you're going Hardcore right? Let me know how that's working for ya. I'm an achievement whore and am already regretting not choosing this option. Did you take the Level 1 perk that unleashes the oddities in the game? I felt it a waste of a perk but now I dunno - see what I mean about my second guessing? haha

Hardcore is easy enough; however I ran into my first crash, I entered a building the game windowed itself and screen went black.......

Went to forums seems there is all kind of horrid stories, even on 360 and ps3 freezing...

Aww man Bethesda!

Yeah I took the wild wasteland

Wait til you find the guys crucified that was kinda creepy...course I killed them on their crosses...

I have this for the XBox 360

I'm about level 18 right now and being about midway through (I think.....)I have some thoughts. Don't worry there will be no Spoilers...

It seems so far that decisions you make influence the outcome of the game at a higher level than we have seen in fallout 3. I like the iron sight aiming. I like the crazy cool weapons (and for those that aren't far don't worry you will find some killer weapons.). I like the added depth of influence (in several different aspects) and I also think the rep system was executed well. The story is also very intriguing as are the side quests.

So far New Vegas lives up to it's predecessors..

I am not playing in Hardcore mode. I will do that after.

I think I am about 4-5 hrs away from beating so I'm slowing up.

as for hardcore mode:

Sleep Dep isnt that bad takes longer than you think... dehydration is the biggest, then eating.

oh and how I hate being crippled, so I carry lotsa doc bags.

Wonder of wonders, me, Mr. "Down with government" in real life... have somehow found myself allied with the NCR. I did this purely because that Aurelias fellow essentially dared me to empty a cylinder of .357 hollow points into his little dog head covered skull.

Love the game. I've got about 15 hours playing time on my latest save, but that doesn't correspond to any sort of completion percentage in open world games for me, because I almost always spend a lot more time exploring and just killing things and eventually finsih quests and storylines in between. I freaking *hate* those tarantula hawk wasp things. I have been killed by them more than pretty much any creature in FO3 aside from Death Claws and the occassional Yao-gi. Also, it took me forever to change my playing style away from my completely maxed out, 100% camo ninja suited, 135% sneak character in FO3. I was taking mantis damage in the school house and was honestly confused as to what was even happening, it had been so long since I took hits in Fallout.

Glitches: I have the 360 version and am playing on a 360 Elite. My launch system suffered it's 3rd RROD last winter, so I decided then to just go ahead and upgrade instead of going through another M$ send away fiasco. I am glad of this because I have heard that neither this game nor Reach will even play on launch systems, despite M$ saying that is a lie. That said, I am having a few issues I hope get patched soon. First and foremost is the really annoying morphing/diappearing two handed weapon glitch. A very close second is the random enemy falling through the ground and burying into the rocks glitch. I'm a bit pissed that Bethesda was almost instantaneous on releasing a patch to eliminate discovered exploits like the infinite speech EXP glitch and the Vicky & Vance infinite poker chip for bottle caps glitch, issues that ONLY affect the individuals who decide to exploit them rather than being a pain every player's rear, rather than fixing the actual glitches that affect everyone's enjoyment regardless of any personal decisions the player makes. That's bush league, IMO. "Somebody isn't playing a single player game the way you, the designer, intended it..." WHOOPITY DAMN DOO! It's not like people who modded deathmatches in Borderlands or abused the hot potato flag glitch in Halo 3.
