All the rumors of a new Fallout game turned out to be true! I’m pretty stoked for another entry into this franchise. This of course means that I am once again heading to the wasteland to collect bottle caps and run away from mutated insects. My game of choice for this romp through a post-apocalyptic world of sadness is Fallout: New Vegas.
I’ve owned Fallout: New Vegas for over year thanks to a Steam sale. I’m sure it was $5, and that is why I snagged it. I never installed it, however, due to all the bugs it suffered at launch. Bethesda does have a reputation for having some very interesting glitches when they release a new game, and this one was no different. Missing faces, NPCs with heads that just spun in circles, floating enemies, game crashes, and corrupted save files all made the list at launch.
Thankfully, I can report that these bugs all appear to be squashed. In the last few hours of play, nobody has gone all creepy with a spinning head or a face totally devoid of a wire frame. The game actually runs pretty smoothly now. I’m glad I gave this a try as I’m finding the story quite a bit better than what Fallout: 3 had to offer. I’m still pretty early in the game, so hopefully things will continue to go without a hitch.
Now to sit here in eager anticipation of what news will come out of E3!
