Fallout: New Vegas released tomorrow, PC patch already out

Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas is released in the UK tomorrow and looks set to be snapped up as quickly as free portions of Iguana-on-a-Stick.  Fallout: New Vegas has been well received by critics, even if there are many reports of in-game bugs.

Perhaps the most notorious, creepy and funny bug at the same time is at the very start of Fallout: New Vegas when this mans’ head is gently rotating around as he talks. Other issues include a moonwalking dog, and on a more series not, game crashes.  A PC patch has already been released in order to fix a number of issues, and it’s likely more will be on the way for Fallout: New Vegas on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Most reviews say that most bugs are more amusing than game destroying, so if you’ve been waiting for Fallout: New Vegas for awhile, you’re still likely to enjoy it very much! Though if you’ve bought Fallout: New Vegas for PC or PlayStation 3, you were probably disappointed to hear that DLC will, at least to begin with, be Xbox 360 exclusive.

Still, in the weeks its release, the Train2Game blog has featured a number of different articles about Fallout: New Vegas.  Naturally, there’s been a preview article which examines some of the new features in Fallout: New Vegas.

Developers Obsidian entertainment have offered six different Fallout: New Vegas developer diaries. They cover The Story, the Tech & Sound, the Art Direction, the Factions,  The New Vegas Strip, and the Characters in Fallout: New Vegas.

And here’s something that may be especially interesting to Train2Game students, Fallout: New Vegas Senior Designer Chris Avellone offered advice on how to break into the games industry in an interview with Planet Fallout.

Fallout: New Vegas is released tomorrow on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Will you be playing Fallout: New Vegas tomorrow? Will you be annoyed if there are bugs? What do you think developers should do to combat things like that unfortunate chaps rotating head?
