Embittered veterans, water salespeople, mutants, and cyber-dogs? Well, beggars can't be choosers when it comes to making friends in the post-apocalyptic wasteland.

    Can't wait to go through New Vegas in hardcore... I'm hoping that the Gamestop preorder canteen will be super-thirst quenching or something though.

    Boone and ED-E will be my companions on my first playthrough. I will also have need to know Lily better.

    I like how Obsidian only makes mentally damaged characters. I want my post apocalyptic worlds to be full of crazy.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    This game looks awesome, it really does. But could somebody, somewhere, go knock on Bethesda/Obsidian's doors and teach their modelers how to do hair? I mean, seriously. Poor Veronica.

    So, are the Fallout games similar to Mass Effect? I've never played one...

    Yeah they need to learn how hair works.... don't understand why they can't model hair better yet. lol. Some of the characters look cool, some just look annoying to me.

    The most objective way to compare them would be to say Fallout is like Mass Effect, only better. And with an open world. And better.

    So there's missions that follow the plotline?

    There are, but to me it's not really like the cinematic experience that is Mass Effect (especially 2). Actually the best thing about it to me is the fantastic post-apocalypse open world setting, which means lot's of side-missions that aren't part of that main plotline. Both are great games in my opinion, but I don't really see them as being similar, even the sci-fi aspects are very different, Mass Effect being more on the space opera side of the coin.

    Well, Fallouts 1 and 2 could best be called post-apocalyptic Baldur's Gate/Planescape Torment. Fallout 3 was more like Oblivion than Mass Effect. Fallout: New Vegas will likely have a stronger storyline and better characters than Fallout 3, thanks to Obsidian's involvement, but retains the large open world of Fallout 3.

    Also, 7th is a Fallout 3 fanboy. FANBOY, I say. :)

    Hmmmm

    I don't know if sounds like something I'd be into, I don't really care for open world games.

    Maybe I'll check out Fallout 3 first.

    Except that it is the opposite. Fallout is like Mass Effect's slightly less intelligent, maybe inbred cousin. The games are far too different to compare too closely, but there are some distant similarities, like being huge, epic games with expansive worlds.

    Bioshock is probably the easiest comparison with Fallout 3. Except the latter has more RPG elements and a ton more sidequests. The former is slightly better, though.

    Can't wait for New Vegas! Probably won't be GOTY material considering the incredibly strong releases earlier in the year, but I'd sy it has a fair crack at runner up/honourable mention.

    Meh I never used a companion in Fallout 3 anyway. I prefer the stealth approach and other people seem like they'd get in the way too much.

    Well I love Bioshock so that's interesting...

    I'll check it out either way.

    I forgot all about Bioshock... that would be the closest companion game, certainly moreso than Mass Effect.

    So I broke down and preordered the CE of this game... I am insanely lame.
