Just bought this game today. Plan to play it through the night. Wish me luck and I'll report back later.

So tell us how the first third of the game feels (if you're still alive this morning :D).
Oh and everyone, if we won't get another news update in weeks, then it's just Azraels fault, not NV! ^^

NOooo we won't have updates for months because you'll lost in Vault somewhere. This game is so addictive that even in game I am addictive to everything (Jet, Mentats, etc)

For the people that want some more radio tracks (and in this case an entire station): clicky.

Planning my weeks off in october/november turned out to be the best idea ever. :D

Decided to stop playing and go to bed around midnight since I have an early lecture today. That...and I hate ghouls. Made it to Novac and talked to the sniper in the dino statue. Gotta work up enough courage before I go down to Repconn to clear it out. Ghouls scare the shit outta me.

So far it feels a lot like Fallout 3 which is good and bad. Not much changed in terms of graphics, but for Fallout:NV I'm ok with that. Likin' the way the ammo and iron sights were done though.

Silly question, if you kill something, is it dead for ever or does is spawn back when you visit the same area again.

Dont worry, what will come next wont be anything like Fallout 3

In the beginning things look alot like FO3 but that changes rapidly

you will LOVE the quest at Repconn

Depends. If you kill a NPC wich talks to you, then it wont respawn. Things like raiders, fiends, Soldiers of faction appear randomly.

A cazador nest for example, will respawn new cazadors after a while. But a random encounter will respawn diffrent things. But all of this takes time (ingame time that is)

By default you are running. Press capslock and you are walking. And yes they don't run as fast as you would like to.

Also remember to holster your gun or use a pistol, holding 2-handed weapons has a movement penalty.

I donwloaded a mod where you run 3 times faster, and I like it very much that way.

I don't like rushing into stuff...Although it is better to be able to run away from the deathclaws faster than that... ;D I am currently doing some work for the NCR (SPOILERS:finding more about Gomora Mafia.) My favorite handgun is officially "Maria".

I just love to use powerarmor minigun combo. So awesome to walk calmly in front of your tiny enemies with their pea shooters and then let the barrels roll and unleash the wall of lead.

Using Tesla armor/Enclave armor and fully upgraded minigun. The avenger just sucked because of the tiny mag.
