    Hi Guy's,

    Got the game yesterday after work and have been playing it. Game play is similar (if not identical) to Fallout 3, so no real learning curve there. However the game itself (so far) is just as enjoyable as it's predecessor.

    I agree with Fergal, I will see if there are any demos before purchasing.

    I thought fallout 3 was too hyped up for what it really was.

    This is why I am playing Mass Effect 2 again.

    Finished ME2, did restart it but lost interest. I'm actually playing FO NV in conjunction with Desd Rising 2. I guess it depends on what games you like :)

    Fallout 3 is amazing, loved that game. Vegas looks pretty much the same game set in different environment. Just need time to play it, spend good 50 hours+ on fallout 3 (I need to go out more). Waiting for gamestation christmas sale. I do recall fallout 3 been sold for half price weeks after release!

    I'm trying to raise my paragon/renegade level so I can import my character into Mass Effect 3 next year.

    I think I've got very similar tastes to you Ken, I adored Fallout 3. Me and my mates would talk for ages about things we'd found and missions we were on. One massive disappointment was that when you completed it you couldn't continue to play the game, completing all the side missions. I hope they have sorted that in the new one. I'll order it off play now. I love the Mass Effect games too tho. Not enough hours in the day is there lads :S

    That's what I was trying to do, then my PC crashed and I had to reinstall everything...

    Know what you mean, as I recall you had to buy the expansion in order to continue to play the game...

    One of the DLC allows you to continue after you finish the main game. I was playing through FO3 but have taken a break from it but will complete it soon. It's not as good as people say it is IMO as there isn't all that much variety in enemies and quests but it's still pretty enjoyable. Probably won't get Vegas until it's bargain basement as got too many games still in their wrappers.

    First off apologies for bringing up a old topic.................

    but i remember a few comments regarding waiting for the price of the game to come down before people buy this

    A radio Advert featuring Brian Blessed, this morning on Galaxy announced

    Gamestation are selling the game at 19.99 until 1st december, knocked down from £39.99.:)

    Although by the looks of it no one has told the Gamestation web site team - sounds about right

    Itdidnt mention any specific stores, or requirements so might be worth popping into your local Gamestation if anyone is interedted

    I have lost my life to fallout new vegas over the past few weeks! Annoyingly there's one bug which is stopping me from completing a mission.

    I have spotted a load of other bugs, but none that affect the gameplay, just interesting "occurrences" in the game, like in one building I killed a robot, and he immediately started bouncing from the ceiling to the floor incredibly fast, like a pinball!

    Finished the main quest and quite a few of the side ones as well after just over 60 hours of game play. Was pleased that the first DLC is going to be released for New Vegas, but.... it's exclusively for the Xbox 360 :(
