The start of Fallout: New Vegas is a good surprise, so stop reading if you don't want event a hint. Not that the first scene of Fallout: New Vegas makes sense (or hasn't been alluded to before). The confusion it elicits is intentional.

The game begins, as I recently experienced first hand, in first-person perspective, the camera pulling back from the Las Vegas stip out into the Mojave desert, where our hero's hands are tied. We are facing three men, one of them in a checkerboard jacket. They are armed. Our courier mission has gone bad and these men mean us harm. We are shot.

When the playable portion of Fallout: New Vegas begins, we wake up in a house. (We've told you about this part before.) We are being tended to by a helpful man, Doc Mitchell, though the player will rightly feel confused about what is going on. There is no Vault to start this new Fallout, no lengthy locked-room training zone in which we might play portions of our hero's youth as we learn the game and the stakes. In New Vegas we are confined briefly, just enough for the helpful man to double-check what we look like and to ask us a few questions get us to describe what we see in some inky blots to better understand us. That's all character-customization of course. We are picking and confirming our character's attributes of body and mind in this, the newest of the malleable Fallout role-playing games.


Before leaving the house we may also choose our first Trait, an extra character-defining quality not offered in 2008's Fallout 3. Some of these have pros and cons. For example, "Four Eyes" would give us plus-one to our perception if we wear glasses, minus-one if we don't. An odder one, Weird Wasteland, would turn a lot of the game's cheekier jokes on or off. For example, you can play New Vegas with a willingness to come across a refrigerator that contains a bullwhip and hat or you can play without worrying about seeing them. The jokes are an homage to Fallout 2, which was also full of pop-culture references to the delight of some fans and the consternation of others.

A producer who is working on the game with development studio Obsidian Entertainment told me I would be free very early in this game. As soon as I stepped outside of the game's few-minute profiling section I could go anywhere I wanted across the New Vegas landscape. This Fallout sequel is less linear than its predecessor, the developer told me. We gamers are expected to wander it and can pursue one of four main paths, allying ourselves with the factions of the game's violent Vegas-area West. We can take the path of the California Republic or of Caesar's Legion or one that has us side with the people of the vibrant New Vegas either with or without its leader, the charismatic Mr. House. There are about 2200 speaking characters to encounter in this game, the producer said, and all but one of them can be k!lled and will stay dead if you choose to be such a brute.


I had about a half-hour to play New Vegas, which is an eye-blink of time for a Fallout game. I had the opportunity to be trained in the gameplay or to wander. The training is optional. An early quest can bring us to a lady who will teach us how to shoot, using the returning probability-based VATS targeting system of Fallout 3, which pauses combat and lets the player select body parts to target. She also instructs us how to use the game's added iron-sights weapon view. Most of this will feel familiar to players of Fallout 3.

New Vegas runs on what seems to be the same technology and functions of Bethesda's in-house-developed Fallout 3. The game systems are mostly the the same. You still wear a Pip-Boy on your arm with displays for your inventory, map and stats, just like in Fallout 3.

I bailed out of training early and walked the desert. We were far from the Vegas strip. I walked down a highway, past a ruined rollercoaster and up a hill topped with towering statues representing an attempt at peace by two of the game's factions. The Mojave desert doesn't have the familiar landmarks of Fallout 3's Washington, D.C., so statues like that help define the terrain. I was frequently accosted by gangs who shot at me; and I found near the statues some guards at whom I shot.

While messing with combat, I learned about a couple of tweaks to the Fallout 3 system. Targeted body parts can sometimes be armored, which is represented by a shield icon. This makes some enemies harder to k!ll, of course. The item-repair system has changed. Now, from the start, players can combine like weapons and repair them to 100% functionality. If you raise your repair skills in this game you are raising your ability to make better forms of ammo and to slow the degradation of your guns. There are also now potions and poisons that you can make, just as there were weapons to forge in the last game. Weapons are made at workbenches located in the game world; potions and poisions are brewed at campfires.


At the recommendation of the attending developer, I made a turn and walked to a place called Nipton. Here, I was told, I would see how warped the world of New Vegas could be. Weird is right. I found a town taken over by people in wolfskins. Some of the town's citizens were hanging, crucified for uncertain crimes. This wolf gang was too tough for me to f!ght, but to vile for me to want to leave unscathed.

I did not reach Las Vegas. I did not find out what my courier mission was supposed to be. I did not find the men who shot me. I had barely gotten started. I liked the small tweaks I saw in the gameplay, but, in this my first hands-on with New Vegas, I was struck by how similar the game runs to Fallout 3. New Vegas is a game that doesn't feel like new tech. It feels like new content, a return to the earlier Western U.S. focus of the original Fallouts.


It's hard to predict where this Fallout: New Vegas desert adventure will lead the player, but I like that it starts with a mystery and is open to the discoveries of a wanderer.

One day, somebody is going to make a game where humanity climbs into the bunker, waits for the apocalypse to pass, emerges from shelter and really does rebuild society, rather than clambering out and getting butchered by mutant wasps before anyone's had time to break ground on a new Millets. It probably won't be Bethesda Softworks, though, because games like Fallout: New Vegas suggest there's still lots more mileage in things going wrong at the end of the world.

QuakeCon 2010 brings with it the chance to play New Vegas for a whole hour without interruption - surely more than enough time to form some conclusions about how well Obsidian Entertainment is adapting the hugely successful model Bethesda repopularised two years ago.

Although it's apparently possible to start right at the beginning of the game and run off into the sunset, our hands-on puts us in the closeted hamlet of Freeside, where gangland twins the Garrets run a seedy back-street casino called the Atomic Wrangler and local security firm the Kings shakes down passers-by while ensuring "the peace". Like much of New Vegas, it's a place where the good make do and the bad make themselves rich in the meantime.

Our first encounter is with a white-suited veteran named Old Ben, who hangs out near to the exit to the Strip, where our quest log suggests we need to head. Ben comes under attack as we approach, leaving us to pick through the familiar Pip-Boy interface for a good weapon - ooh, an Anti-Materiel Rifle! - to a.ssist.

A little later, while our mutual enemies nurse their geysering stumps, Ben advises us not to try to sneak past the nearby robot "greeter" onto the Strip or we'll be toast. As if to prove this, a Freeside randomer sprints past the greeters and finds himself torn down. We're told we must pay 2000 caps or present a passport to make progress onto the Strip. Alrighty.

We need funds, then, and James and Francine Garret are happy to oblige if we're happy to oblige them and not just rack up debts in their pokey casino, which lies behind a nondescript plasterboard door off the main drag. James is all about keeping the punters happy, and enlists us to locate a few escorts to suit his clientelle's more exclusive tastes. To this end, we head out into Freeside to locate a cowboy ghoul, a suave man who can role-play the boyfriend role convincingly and, if you hadn't got the picture yet, a s3xbot.

We struggle to locate the latter within our prescribed hour - a locked door ends up in the way - but the suave guy turns out to be our friend Old Ben, who earlier regailed us with stories of his time as a butcher, a courier (the player's profession before he got shot in the head at the outset of New Vegas), and an escort. Ben thinks he's turned enough tricks to last him a lifetime, but that's nothing that our Speech skill, maxed out for the demo, can't handle.

With Benny in the bag, we head off to the nearby Old Mormon Fort, where doctors and nurses tend to degenerates and kids run around waving knives at each other, and where we encounter Beatrix, a sassy drinker who happens to be a Stetson-toting ghoul. With the (made-up) promise of a discount on hooch and with a spring in her necrotic step, she beats a path back to the Garrets.

you were literally still at the very beginning of the game. True the game is glitchy but the extra dlc were even worse. The Pitt is the glitchiest dlc i've ever witnessed. That s**t caused my ps3 to freeze over 10 times....The game is great though and i already got this one preordered. Hard mode seems like it could be a problem but we'll c.

No, that's actually just how the PS3 version works, it's incredibly glitchy, even the save files are glitched, if you overwrite a single file a few hundred times it will corrupt itself (The xbox version does this as well, but only after a thousand or so saves).
idk if thats true, i've put in over 90 hrs into this game and although i can't say how many times i've overwritten my save file but its been alot and i've never had any problems, but yes the game itself is glitchy but like i said in another post, the dlc is super glitchy, mainly point lookout and especially the pitt....f**k the pitt....glad i got my 73/73 trophies and 100% so i never have to play that again.
