Lots of people Google Fallout: New Vegas. This is what it is.

10/21/2010

From the ever-trusted Wikipedia:

Fallout: New Vegas is a role-playing video game in the Fallout series by Obsidian Entertainment. It was released in North America on October 19, 2010, and is scheduled for release on October 22, 2010 in Europe.
Fallout: New Vegas is not a direct sequel to Fallout 3. The game offers a similar role-playing experience as Fallout 3 and events are set three years later. While no characters from the previous game will be used, it’s been reported at least one character from Fallout 2 will appear.

Reviews:

So far, reception to Fallout: New Vegas has been generally favorable with critics praising the gameplay improvements and expanded content over Fallout 3 while criticizing familiarity and technical issues.
Eurogamer commented that “Obsidian has created a totally compelling world and its frustrations pale into insignificance compared to the immersive, obsessive experience on offer. Just like the scorched scenery that provides its epic backdrop, New Vegas is huge and sprawling, sometimes gaudy, even downright ugly at times – but always effortlessly, shamelessly entertaining.”

Giant Bomb’s Jeff Gerstmann reviewed Fallout: New Vegas for the Xbox 360 positively, despite its many crash bugs and glitches. “When I reflect on the experience, I’ll probably think about the times the game locked up on me or broke in a dozen other crazy ways first, before thinking about the great world and the objectives that fill it. If you were able to look past the issues that plagued Fallout 3 and Oblivion before it, New Vegas will eventually show you a real good time.”

Video game news website, Kotaku, pointed out several instances of game bugs resulting in incorrect movement of 3D animations and rendering. An embedded video on Kotaku demonstrated this with an example from the opening cutscenes of the game showing Dr. Mitchell’s head rotating whilst appearing to be stuck in a ‘sit-down’ position.The game has generally been given higher ratings on PC than on consoles, due to better stability.
