Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Maybe the game features will change your mind?

* There is an optional hardcore mode, the character needs to drink water, ammo has weight, healing isn't instant etc. Normal mode is more similar to Fallout 3 gameplay.
* The storyline is focused on the New California Republic vs. Caesar's Legion vs. New Vegas residents.
* You are not a vault dweller but are given a Pip-Boy by someone who is one.
* There is a screenshot of a vault suit as well.
* There is an assault rifle looking like the M4, as well as a new big gun with a backpack, held like a minigun.
* There are special moves for melee weapons in VATS - specifically a move for a golf club called "Fore" which seems to be a groin shot.
* The Hoover Dam is in the game and is supplying electricity to the city.
* There is a quest to rescue a ghoul from some super mutants. The ghoul can then become your companion
* The Geckos are back.
* There are both dumb and intelligent super mutants, including the elite Nightkin.
* Some super mutants look similar to the ones in Fallout 3, while others are new. There is e.g. a female super mutant with a 1950s hairstyle who apparently is one of their leaders.
* Screenshots include a guy with a beard and straw hat, a ghoul an NCR Ranger
* The only picture of New Vegas itself is concept art and not a screenshot
* Some location screenshots include a huge model dinosaur advertising a hotel, some satellite dishes, an array of solar panels
* A character generation shot showing a "vigour machine" instead of the skill book
* NCR base is the McCarran Airport, Caesar's Legion is based in the Vegas Strip, while super mutants are based in a place called Black Mountain. There is also a town called Fremont and another called Primm. A topless reuve is mentioned as being in the latter. Area 51 also appears.
* NCR Ranger armor is similar to a brown combat armor with sleeves, there are concept arts of a Ranger
* Skils have a bigger effect on conversation choices. E.g. someone with a high Explosives skill may be able to have a coversation about explosives where appropriate.
* There is a Reputation system in adition to Karma.

Thats pretty much the only one I want.

Sure there are mods in FO3, but its just not the same as a real option built into the game.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

WOW I JUST BROKE MY PANTS! :(

But all kidding aside, even if it is just like Fallout 3 I don't really have a problem with that.

Reading articles, I get this:

  • Mutant sheep
  • TV bots (Robotic mirelurks???)
  • All factions neutural. Respect ratings for each means they have their own ideas of right and wrong, and a single karma factor indicates you can do BAAAD things in general. (killing slaves is bad for business and is creul, but if they are trying to kill you it's okay...)
  • There may be enemies replaced. No more mole rats... D:

Who cares about molerats anyway, all they are good for is decaptating with a blunt stick.

Hardcore mode sounds... hard. I like it, but Obsidian is making it, so...

I think both Kotor 2 and NWN 2 where better then the original games. But i have a very low opinion on NWN so is not that hard to surpass. Kotor 2 had issues but i attributed that to a rushed schedule. I hope there not rushed with FNV. If they are then i bet it will show. It almost always does.

kotor 2 had some flaws, but it had way better story and characters
