Experience all the sights and sounds of fabulous New Vegas, brought to you by Vault-Tec, America's First Choice in Post Nuclear Simulation. Explore the treacherous wastes of the Great Southwest from the safety and comfort of your very own vault: Meet new people, confront terrifying creatures, and arm yourself with the latest high-tech weaponry as you make a name for yourself on a thrilling new journey across the Mojave wasteland. A word of warning, however - while Vault-Tec engineers have prepared for every contingency,* in Vegas, fortunes can change in an instant. Enjoy your stay.

Welcome to Vegas. New Vegas. It’s the kind of town where you dig your own grave prior to being shot in the head and left for dead…and that’s before things really get ugly. It’s a town of dreamers and desperados being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis. It’s a place where the right kind of person with the right kind of weaponry can really make a name for themselves, and make more than an enemy or two along the way.

As you battle your way across the heat-blasted Mojave Wasteland, the colossal Hoover Dam, and the neon drenched Vegas Strip, you’ll be introduced to a colorful cast of characters, power-hungry factions, special weapons, mutated creatures and much more. Choose sides in the upcoming war or declare “winner takes all” and crown yourself the King of New Vegas in this follow-up to the 2008 videogame of the year, Fallout 3. Enjoy your stay.

Key Features:

Feel the Heat in New Vegas! Not even nuclear fallout could slow the hustle of Sin City. Explore the vast expanses of the desert wastelands – from the small towns dotting the Mojave Wasteland to the bright lights of the New Vegas strip. See the Great Southwest as could only be imagined in Fallout.

Feuding Factions, Colorful Characters and a Host of Hostiles! A war is brewing between rival factions with consequences that will change the lives of all the inhabitants of New Vegas. The choices you make will bring you into contact with countless characters, creatures, allies, and foes, and determine the final explosive outcome of this epic power struggle.

New Systems! Enjoy new additions to Fallout: New Vegas such as a Companion Wheel that streamlines directing your companions, a Reputation System that tracks the consequences of your actions, and the aptly titled Hardcore Mode to separate the meek from the mighty. Special melee combat moves have been added to bring new meaning to the phrase “up close and personal”. Use V.A.T.S. to pause time in combat, target specific enemy body parts and queue up attacks, or get right to the action using the finely-tuned real-time combat mechanics.

An Arsenal of Shiny New Guns! With double the amount of weapons found in Fallout 3, you’ll have more than enough new and exciting ways to deal with the threats of the wasteland and the locals. In addition, Vault-Tec engineers have devised a new weapons configuration system that lets you tinker with your toys and see the modifications you make in real time.

Let it Ride! In a huge, open world with unlimited options you can see the sights, choose sides, or go it alone. Peacemaker or Hard Case, House Rules, or the Wild Card - it’s all in how you play the game.

Re: Game You are Currently Addicted to

Fallout New Vegas got 8.5 from IGN. I am happy but I don't trust IGN so I'll just have to wait till I get the game.

@Dinjo :- by wait I meant I am waiting to get the game for myself :).

Okay here is a summary of my impression of the game :-

Pros :-
-> Cozy and home like feeling for FO3 veterans as the gameplay mechanics are quite similar
-> Addition of factions and things like Damage Threshold and Damage Per Second make a deep game even more deeper
-> Characters more likeable and interesting than FO3
-> Main storyline feels interesting and intriguing
-> Has every good thing that FO3 had!

Cons :-
-> Slow framerate on the X360
-> Occasional bugs (haven't ran into anything big yet)

So overall, a 9/10 from me. Will be hooked to it for a long time to come!

New Vegas looks okay at the best but that's cause of the amount of stuff it has to render at any given point of time. It looks almost exactly as Fallout 3. Sadly it runs terribly on the consoles. Clocked in 5 hours. Amazing game except the lag problem. Hooked to it like crazy!

If new vegas gfx is exactly same as fallout 3 I think it's the best as I've loved ( and still love it ) fallout 3 for it's great gameplay and I think same would be applicable for Fallout New Vegas as well.

Back to school!!
hey anyone reached the strip in Las Vegas.I can't find my way.
Yes, I did, to reach the strip go to freeside and find the door that takes you to the strip, you must have a pass card or 2000 caps to pass through, you don't loose the caps, you need to have the caps to enter only.
