yay. been waiting for it. love obsidian games, love fallout but the game was released when i had more important stuff to buy than games.
feb. is ideal time.
This actually makes the Legion assassin squads quite useful, since they always come around with a variety of weapons and armor to patch you up after you murder them.
@lots of people
Thanks for the feedback. It sounds like New Vegas is worth investigating.
New Vegas is better in just about every regard than Fallout 3 (IMHO, though most people seem to agree), but at the same time it is also built with the same engine and many of the same resources, so it can feel very samey. I played probably 150 hours of Fallout 3, but only managed to play through New Vegas once (so far, I will get back to it one day), because it was too similar to engage with in the same way.
So yeah, it's definitely worth playing, but if you burnt yourself out on Fallout 3 then NV isn't really different enough.
Anyway, sold NV on 360 and bought it on PC about two or three months ago. I've barely touched it, so I really should have held off since we all knew some sort of complete edition would come along eventually. Oh well, I'm sure the DLCs will be on sale over Christmas.
weekendwarrio.rs - We've got more games than time...
Concerning the pricing: I don't regret buying the game before release of the Collector's Edition. I bought the main game in the first Steam sale to feature it (which took place shortly after the initial release) and three DLCs afterwards in other sales, so I didn't really pay that much more (if at all) than the CE's price (assuming it will be the same as Fallout 3 CE's) if I wait for the rest of the content to be reduced in price. The Fallout 3 CE taught me that too much DLC at once can be a burden and I enjoyed playing through the NV's extra content bit by bit.
Highly recommendable game if you are willing to spend some time installing (and maybe testing) mods.
