Last month I previewed Fallout: New Vegas, but wasn’t able to finish the game in the 50-something hours I had spare. I estimated the game would be 80-100 hours from start to finish, playing as a completionist. I was wrong.Factoring in replayed...

More a massive expansion pack to Fallout 3 than a true sequel (and that's not necessarily a demerit, given its predecessor's popularity) there’s no denying New Vegas' appeal for fans of post-apocalypse fantasy. While there is plenty of tension and...

A worthy successor....

Coming only two years after Fallout 3, this game is a strange beast. Not quite a sequel, Fallout: New Vegas feels more like a spiritual successor to the previous titles....

I think this game could have been more, a lot more, and epically a lot more, if Obsidian did not break golden rule number six: find a way to raise the bar. It feels like more of the same, but the same kind of thing you enjoyed from Fallout 3, so it’s...

Obsidian sequel hits the jackpot War. War never changes.” OK, actually, that’s not entirely true. If Fallout’s gravelly voiced narrator were really a stickler for accuracy, he’d probably amend his catchphrase to read: “War. War changes slightly.” Make...

Minor grumbles aside, Fallout New Vegas is a deeply impressive game Good Points Vast, open-world gameplay; lots of variety; great voice acting Bad Points Graphics sometimes look a bit outdated; occasional glitches...

Fallout. For the uninitiated it’s a game where the world has gone belly up after some kind of nuclear what-have-you and you’re there to pick up the pieces, or scatter the pieces, or just sift through the pieces for all the valuable things.“War. War...

Fallout: New Vegas is in many ways a very different Fallout game. It moves the winning blend of fifties retro future tech and post apocalyptic environment onto the back seat. Instead it takes a more western vibe and puts you in a far less damaged...

The start of Fallout: New Vegas brings you back from the dead with the simple task of finding your killer and the reason for your demise. As a courier of the wasteland you have been carefully exterminated by a man in a chequered suit because of what...

New Vegas was fun to play, and that’s what it really comes down to. I simply ignored the aspects of the game that I didn’t feel were fun, and I didn’t feel any sort of crafting shaped holes in my heart from doing so. VISUALSThe graphics for this...

We take a look at Bethesda Softworks latest RPG set in the Fallout universe, Fallout: New Vegas. While having much in common with its predecessor, Fallout 3, New Vegas brings some new cards to the table for you to make use of, sometimes literally....

Fallout: New Vegas is buggy. That's not really open for debate, as the Internet is currently abuzz with complaints from players, and videos of weird stuff happening. Over the course of my 80-something hours with the game, I experienced a wide variety...

The Fallout series has quite a deep history behind it. Putting the beloved Wasteland aside for now, Fallout and its sequel were developed in the late 90s by the legendary Black Isle Studios. Black Isle was partway through development of Van Buren, the...
