Fallout New Vegas
Fallout New Vegas is an addition for Fallout 3, not a whole new game in the series, but still an interesting instalment full of content. It was created by Obsidian Entertainment, a good developer that has already proven to be worthy. Some of the people from this studio also coproduced Fallout and Fallout 2. Thanks to this fact, the universe has stayed consistent thorough the series.
The story is about three fractions, New California Republic, Caesar’s Legion and the inhabitants of New Vegas fighting for dominance. Our character’s traits are determined by a sort of psychoanalysis. He is traveling messenger who dearly dies but for help of a befriended robot. Pip Boy is back, too, of course. The main hero receives him from the robot’s proprietor. The gameplay is exactly like it used to be in Fallout 3. We control our character who is constantly developing, seeing the world from either first or third person perspective. V.A.T.S. system is back, too. It lets us aim directly for a certain body part of our enemy or stop time, depending on the number of our action points at the time. There are not many novelties in Fallout New Vegas, but we do get a new set of perks and skills. There are also some new weapons and new possibilities for modifying them. Depending on what we do with our abilities, our karma changes, but it’s not the only thing affected.
Each side of the conflict has its own view on us. We can make some like us and some, hate us, or try to stay as indifferent as possible, but usually, in the end we do have to make a choice. Dialogues are connected to our skills, too, and determine how we can solve a problem. In New Vegas, however, there are also additional possibilities for characters that are not very erudite. The biggest additions in comparison to the previous installments are a new hardcore mode meant for fans of high difficulty and a complicated and rewarding crafting system.
