Hm.

Depends on how much you liked Fall Out 3.

Did you like/hate FO3 story? This one is better. But different.

Did you like/hate FO3 gameplay? This one is basically the same.

Did you like the FO3 setting? This one is so much different, more wasteland, less DC. New Vegas is also disappointing so don't put your hopes into it looking cool.

More quests options though, which is nice. And had decent progression. The companions are actually good now, too, if you were in to that.

I liked it. If you liked FO3, you will probably like this. A bit buggier. I would get it now if you absolutely NEED a game to play, but it would be better if you just waited for it to go on sale (like the Christmas one that will surely have it for 5$). Never tried any DLC.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

The story in Fallout 3 didn't do anything for me but I also didn't hate it.

As for the gameplay, I thought VATS was a steaming pile of ****. Why can't my sniper rifle just work like it's supposed to?

The setting was cool!

So far i have only played though one of the DLCs. That being Honest Heart. Nice looking environment. Feels a bit like going on vacation in the Fallout world. Compared to the rest of the wasteland this is pretty much paradise. Its not the best Fallout DLC however. I am guessing the worst of the 4 micro expansions to Fallout NV. Its better then Mothership Zeta thats for sure. But i would probably rate both the pitt and lookout point.

Now what i have played off Old World Blues which is the second DLC i have really played (though i have not finished it) is like Mothership Zeta should have been. It has a sense of humor to it. Lots of interesting items. Interesting little things to find. Interesting if generally ugly zone to explore. (Intended to be ugly. After all its pretty much a industrial zone with lab facilities everywhere.) This is for anyone that like the wild wasteland perk.

oh and Pat. Aiming is improved in Fallout NV. At least to some degree. Iron sights exist and such. VATS still exist but you do not have to use it. Also it might be worth checking out project Nevada (I believe the mod is called) if you still want to go a bit more action oriented.

Btw might i ask what was wrong with sniper rifles in Fallout 3?

They don't work.

I shoot a guy in the head and he just stands there and asks me for the time.

Thats not a problem with sniper rifles specifically, its a problem with ALL weapons :P

It stems from lazy game design that uses shortcuts to increasing difficulty. Choosing to just ramp up enemy hitpoints instead of making them more formidable through use of AI and the like.

Point Lookout was a pretty good example of that. The completely unarmoured tribals could soak up more damage than super mutants.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Yes. That can be a problem. Sort of make sense on the toughest of mutants. But that said not on you typical enemy.

But... I find that if you really make a sniper (in FNV at least) you should be able to snipe typical high powered enemy in one shot. (Maybe not if you meet some of the more extreme ones. Especially not boss ones.) Playing at the right difficulty also has impotence. Hard difficult really ramps up HP more then anything else.

Note if you do not specialize in it then you wont be able to make those magic one shot kills. Also aim for the head and shoot in stealth mode. And of course in FNV use the right ammo for the task.

(Btw what Sam mentions is the biggest flaw of lookout point.)

I decided to go with this deal instead. ;D

I already own Planescape and Baldur's Gate, but GoG takes that into account and charges me less and still gives me the discount. Yay GoG!

Icewindale is the only thing there i am interested in. Most of the stuff i already own there.

But tell us what you think about it.

Now back to Fallout New Vegas!

Question: How do you all play the game?

I usually play stealthy. Sneak around, take the shot, then move.

And I do that because it's the easiest way to play.

I run up to things and punch them until one of us dies.

And I do that because it's the ballsiest way to play.

I've played all of the DLCs except the new "Lonesome Road".

Dead Money: The Worst in my opinion.
You're stuck with 4 weapons throughout the whole DLC and 2 of them are just a mash up of 1.
There's only I kind of enemy that keeps coming back at you.
The characters and the story is pretty interesting though and it got some nice scares now and then.
If you play "Old World Blues" or "Honest Hearts"  afterwards you will notice some nice references to it.
I'll give it 2/5.

Honest Hearts: This is a bit better than the first DLC.
It feels like a nice vacation like Yokto said, big open areas but a little empty in my opinion.
Few side-quests and the main quest is pretty short. After you finish the story the area will
just become an empty area with a few wilds beasts.
I'll give it 3/5,

Old World Blues: Now this is by far my favorite DLC.
Loads of references to the two previous DLCs as well as hints on the upcomming one.
Many nice areas you can explore and a lot of humor and silly things.
After you finished the story you wont have any side-quests but you can still go around searching for more
delicious loot and data logs about different characters in the game.
I'll give it 5/5. This is how a DLC should be made.

I really hope the fourth and probably last DLC will be just as good as Old World Blues. :)
If you stop and think about it, Your life's longer as an old guy than a kid. Scary o.o

I hated dead money. full of fake difficulty and pain. only good thing is completing it gives you more or less infinite money.

no, the best thing about OWB is that completing it means cazies don't f*** you up quite as badly.

also, the weapon add-on is actualy worth it, I think.

I wish when I click "delete local game content" on Steam, that it would just delete the game folder instead of picking through and nabbing the EXE and some data folders. You hit delete and there's still gigs worth of data just sitting there waiting to mess up your mod installs when you start over.

So I'm reinstalling New Vegas for the second time today instead of playing it like I should be right now.

Anyway, some of you have now been reminded that New Vegas is a thing. So go reinstall it and have fun. :D


**EDIT**
Woo got it working!
