    8 Things About Fallout: New Vegas That Would Make BIS proud

    IGN lists off 8 things in New Vegas that would make BIS proud.
    The New Vegas Strip

    Fallout 3 had nothing to rival Fallout 2's New Reno, but the New Vegas Strip is perhaps the most effective encapsulation of the Fallout aesthetic and ethos to be found in any of the games. The Lucky 38's Presidential Suite, made of faded leather and velvet and full of battered closets stocked with dirty pre-war apparel, is the physical embodiment of Fallout's decaying American dream. The strip itself, meanwhile, it a glitzy hellhole, full of desperate individuals with so little to live for that this strangled, neon-cast shadow of a once-great city is worth killing over. Shame you can't take a job as a fluffer, Reno-style. That's still probably the most degrading thing in videogames.

    Drinking out of toilet bowls

    Pretty much everything about Hardcore mode recalls Black Isle's Fallout games: the way your companions die, leaving you all alone out there in the wastes; the way a crippled limb or radiation poisoning can lead to a slow and inevitable death; the way everything in the entire wasteland, from the wildlife to the water, is trying to murder you. But there's nothing that depresses us quite so much as lapping irradiated liquid from a toilet bowl to stave off death by dehydration.

    Word to BN,

    "Pretty much everything about Hardcore mode recalls Black Isle's Fallout games"

    and

    "Deathclaws are just as tough! Requiring nothing less than a nuke to stop them"

    etc.

    Epitome of hilarity.

    Me: "Herp-derp, this looks like a interesting list."

    Fallout 3 had nothing to rival Fallout 2's New Reno, but the New Vegas Strip is perhaps the most effective encapsulation of the Fallout aesthetic and ethos to be found in any of the games.

    And yet when Fallout 3 arrived a significant portion of those fans were dissatisfied with it, feeling it lacked the older games' character.
    I LOL'd. So now we are not the "vocal minority", but "significant portion". This is sooooo fucking funny.

    I didn't find her particularly ingenious, but she's definitely well written. I like her dialog, but I liked most of the dialogs. Voice acting was all absolutely abysmal though.

    Agree. NV is not so bad game that they need to say: "Hey, kids! It's Fallout. It's Fallouty Fallout! It's Super Radioactive Fallouty Fallout".

    When Bethesda announced its resurrection of the Fallout series, there was a section of the gaming population throwing their hats higher than anyone else: fans of the original PC games, developed by Black Isle.
    AHAHAHAHAHAH. What?

    Even if it was the Bethesda of the old times they had experience in a completely different kind of RPGs.

    I'd like to give the author the benefit of the doubt by suggesting he was on drugs when Fallout 3 was announced.

    Disregarding the completely terrible article and listing, I'm genuinely surprised any of the fucks over at IGN have even played Fallout 1 and Fallout 2.

    I want to go to a parallel universe where Van Buren was released.
