Fallout: New Vegas


Recommended Posts

A couple of new informations from the same preview on the same topic on the same ol' Beth's boards:

 

- Mr. House (that's the name of the fella who controls the city) doesn't deal personally with the Casinos. There are apparently various faction that control the different Casinos and one of them is the Chairman, mentioned as powerful enough you don't really wanna mess with.

 

- Of course, even this factions have to respect Mr. House's rule. They still have their own rule though, as with the fact that you can't bring guns in some Casinos, unless you hide them with a very high sneak skill.

 

- There is also a place (not sure if it's a city or just another Vegas' casino) called Gomorrah. Guess you know what to expect given the name.

Chris mentionned a gand of "evil Frank Sinatras", someone knows what that could mean?

 

As for Gomorrah, it could be a man who deeply resents Christians and is in a "war" with an extremist Christian group, and just named his part of land like that to anger them even more. "Yeah, try to bring me down with a box and some lights, you f***ers! I want to see that!"

Aehm no, Gomorrah is apparently a place where you have to expect sex themes, drugs and vices etc... and I though I didn't have to explain the joke lol.

As for the evil Frank Sinatras, I don't really know. I'm not exactly an expert on american culture.

 

EDIT : Sawyer's reading. For some reason I imagine him cackling ominously on all the wrong information inaccurate speculation in this thread. With latin chanting on the background.

Mark Morgan > Audio Turned Off > Inon Zur

 

jus' sayin'.

 

I personally used the 'alternative soundtrack' since I couldn't stand the Oblivion-ish themes of Zur.

Even if I try to detach them from the game they're so ... soulless... I hope he does a better job on New Vegas.

How was his work on Tactics?

Better than FO3, I'd argue.

Well, they don't talk of "Sodom and Gomorrah" for nothing -_- That's why I just expressed a theory that isn't the obvious one, just for fun :p

I'm a little concerned about the extent of the "humor" in the game. Humor is pretty hard to pull of without being stupid. I hope Obs is smart enough to keep it on the back burner. As far as I know, there are no great humorists working at Obsidian.

 

 

A man's got to know his limitations... That goes double for game developers.

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

I take it you didn't much appreciate Fallout 2?

I turned a demi lich into a chicken, then it killed two of my party.

A level 30+ cleric's Turn Undead should kill a demi-lich on the spot. Even mighty Kangaxx gets owned by it.

 

But Aerie Kaelyn probably will never get such a high level.
