Fallout: New Vegas DLC

Just finishing my 2nd playthough of the Fallout: New Vegas DLC (Downloadable Content), Dead Money. Probably the best DLC in terms of quality and length, and it's one of my favorites in terms of immersion and story (which is a big part of the Fallout experience to me.)

Basically, if you've ever played Fallout 3 or New Vegas, you'll now once you beat the main storyline, you basically just run around and do side quests/explore when you're playing the game. The side quests can be quite boring and exploring gets old rather fast, so all there is left is to wait for the new DLC to come out. Dead Money came out about a week ago and I finished it within the first day, naturally (it's meant to be around 6 hours or so of playtime), and I had a blast. The story is genuinely interesting and a nice fit for the game. I don't want to give anything away, but the first couple hours are a bit boring, but once you get inside the casino it gets rather interesting.

It's definitely worth getting if you have F:NV, only $10 and it's a good 6+ hours of entertainment (plus you get a few Steam achievements, and if you're like me, thats a big deal.)

  1. Have the updates solved some of the bug issues?

  2. Yeah, they released a big patch that fixed a lot of bugs, and as far as I know you can install mods to fix some of the others.

    Honestly, I finished New Vegas in like a month and I hadn't really played it since until this week when Dead Money came out, everything still worked fine (including all my mods), and the performance was fine.

  5. F:NV is definitely worth it if you ever played FO3, its very much the same, but the gameplay in NV is a bit better. The story in FO3 was better though imo, but NV's isn't terrible.

  6. I bought F:NV on the 360 when it came out, but I haven't played it yet. I should really get around to it. I had heard that there were a lot of game-breaking bugs so I shelved it until some of those were fixed and worked on some of my backlog. Of course that means that it takes me forever to come back around to it.

    I'll have to try to break it out soon!

    Fallout 3 was much better

  8. @ Anton - Yeah the story in FO3 was way better and the game itself was WAY more immersive, but NV was still pretty damn good and I live in AZ so it was nice to see some things I'm used to seeing (desert, Hoover dam, all that good stuff.)
