I'm glad it sold well and got positive reviews, it's really what F3 should have been.

Let's hope they keep working with them.

Yeah, Avellone was very pleased with them. But it was inequitable for Obsidian/Black Isle not being able to create Fallout 3 (even though Interplay is to 'blame'). Let's hope to see a 'Fallout 3: Van Buren'.

EdwardTheBard: Some elements of Van Buren were incorporated into New Vegas. But yeah, I'd like to see a new Fallout game from them on a custom engine, or at least a new engine from Bethesda.

Indeed. But New Vegas was Obsidian's Fallout based on Bethesda's Fallout. I want to see the(ir) original idea.

I consider the inferiority of the graphics a nostalgic element -- Fallout was never about fancy visuals.

I kinda thought the same. Still, those games look polished for what they are. New Vegas just looks...bad, at times.

Had to uninstall the last patch because while it fixed some issues, it screwed my companions. Playing offline (Xbox 360) version for now, and eagerly awaiting their next patch. Pretty miffed over all these problems, but goddamn, it's such a good game...

Out of curiosity what makes it a good game? I stopped playing Fallout 3 because there was not much to do in a giant desert with random fall out shelters housing pretty dumb A.I. bots.

I don't get the appeal of endlessly doing nothing.

It gets points for atmosphere.

Review here. Short version: great dialogue and story and much-improved RPG elements. There's a main quest you can follow easily, at your own pace. Lots of interesting characters and venues. AI seems pretty smart to me, though the difficulty itself isn't that high, even on very hard/Hardcore.

There is lots of desert..I guess that isn't for everyone. But you can move through that fairly quickly if you like, especially if you have the PC version and the Sprint Mod.

I just hope for Fallout 4 Bethesda develops an entirely new engine, this engine has been recycled too many times and is way too buggy. Past the bugs though, the game is fantastic. With a new (optimized) engine I think they could make the game much better (as if that were possible!).

Really overrated imo, not a bad game (it can be lots of fun) but definitely not a great game by any means either. And of course the list of bugs that still need fixed is huge... Although they've fixed many of the major bugs.
