    [​IMG]Hey Poor Player looks back at Fallout: New Vegas:


    Fallout: New Vegas Is A Mojave Marvel

    Grier And Roving In New Vegas

    Back in 2008, Fallout 3 rewrote the RPG rulebook with a gratifyingly evolved post-apocalypse sequel, the likes of which we had never seen before. Boasting a massive irradiated wasteland, zillions of dialogue options, and a zesty compendium of missions, characters, and memorable moments and monstrosities, Fallout 3 appeared to be an unbeatable modern RPG...until Fallout: New Vegas came along. Swapping out a nuclear Washington DC for a rechristened Las Vegas known as New Vegas, this Obsidian Entertainment-developed sequel propels the hallmarks of Fallout 3 to greater heights, thus becoming the ultimate progenitor.


    There's so much going on with Fallout: New Vegas that it's incredibly easy to forget to mention a bevy of cool things. This feature hasn't even delved into the crafting, nor the wicked awesome upgrade perks with abilities such as the Terrifying Presence that doles out a range of alternative dialogue options, and Better Criticals make you a more ferocious courier than you'd ever be without them. Mind you, writing a 3,000-word novella of Fallout: New Vegas wouldn't cover everything; it's that enormous and filled with intrigue and lore. New Vegas is one heck of an RPG, like a citrus fruit that never stops pouring out juicy sustenance, no matter how many times you squeeze it. There are hundreds of hours to deliciously gnaw on, but there are four DLC desserts to ravenously consume afterward. What Obsidian has achieved here is something that surpasses the already almighty Fallout 3, featuring a slew of amazing new additions, new perks, a brand new neon-pulsing setting, a new overarching conflict, many new missions, dialogue options and choices that ripple throughout the Mojave Wasteland. New Vegas is undoubtedly one of the most colossal RPGs there is, and it's as worth playing today as it ever was. If you haven't already, go and explore this mastodon and witness for yourself just how enormous it is and how it'll completely swallow you up.
