I am surprised how much slower it runs on my PC than FO3 considering it's the same engine and they pretty much look the exact same. It stays really smooth until I encounter people. I guess I will be doing that upgrade sooner than I had planned.
Hmmm all these glitches you folks are mentioning are scaring me off this game. I really liked F03 so I hope to enjoy NV but I made the mistake of buying FO3 early when I should have waited for the GOTY edition with all the DLC goodies (which a lot of games are getting). Maybe by then the glitches will be fixed.

I played it for a few hours yesterday (360), and the only problems I've had so far was a little frame rate slowdown. I played through FO3 5-6 times, and this has the same feel. I have a few small gripes but that's it so far...
-I'm torn on the new use of Magazines. I like the large increase in skill (Has already come in handy), but I like the small permanent boost better.
-Radio, I liked GNR better. Within an hour I felt like I'd already heard every song there was.
-The cut scene at the beginning just looked awful.
Did anyone else take the Wild Wasteland trait?
While the loading while walking around is annoying, I find the over all game fun so far. I played enough to make it to Nipton yesterday before having to take a break and actually do something that day.
thank your sir, haha forgot about that. I guess i was too excited of playing through
I also had it freeze on me during walks in the wasteland for a couple seconds...ive come used to it it as well....I only had it freeze on me and reboot after I fasted jumped to a location...it was
"loading" for 5mins.... Anyone know what Faction they gonna choose to ally with? i was thing of Legion...but i might just run solo on this one

While at work I saw a few Redbox's with copies of NV. I was tempted but 2$ a night is kinda steep for a rental. I remember Blockbuster $5 for 5 nights or something like that. And with NV you can't rent it for 1 day you have to keep it at least a few

I don't have the heart to cheat but I guess there are a bunch of glitches out there. This one give you a million caps in a matter of 5 minutes if you do it enough.
What level is everyone at and what are you putting your skill points into? I'm at 8 right now and have been dumping my points into speech, it seems as if so many situations come down to convincing people to do what you want them to do early on.
I had to spend 500 caps to get parts for that rocket mission and I didn't get any of it back, could have negotiated a better deal if my speech were higher at the time.
They can never get rid of it either. Everyone will just unpatch, do the glitch, then patch.
On PC though it really doesnt matter. Because you can always just use save editors and **** to get whatever you want(if thats what you like to do).
I think I'm level ~15 or 16 or so.
You guys are right, this game does crash ALOT, and sometimes at the worst times. I wasn't sure if it was just my copy or not. It froze first thing I aimed at.
Now that the games have started, ED-E can be a companion, I just got the stuff to fix him. He's weak, but he can carry alot.
Boone, in Novac is also a companion, in the dyno past 9PM. Cass way down south is also a companion. Those are the only ones I've found so far. Ah, no. I found another sniper you can get, a butch lesbian in the NCR main base.
For starters I'd stick to the story line, until you make it to New Vegas from the East. If you head N. the Death Claws await, I still can't kill them. Giant scorpions are also buttholes in numbers.
Repair doesn't seem too useful, you can repair way past 100% damage w/out high repair. Meanwhile speech is used often, so I'm starting to dump in there.
REMEMBER HOW YOU'RE DRESSED! For example, meeting the BoS in NCR clothing... Not a good idea!
Hardcore isnt' bad. Just eating is enough for thirst and sleep (and obviously hunger). Water needs rise quickly, but a drink from a water fountain does wonders.

yeah i think i'm around 12 or 13 now. having a gnarly cold on a friday night helped me level up.
did a lot in vault 22 tonight and some BoS stuff. interesting so far. i have so many unfulfilled quests and i have yet to even make it to the strip, so that's promising. still kind of unsure of what faction i really want to side with or whatever, but with every mission it gets pretty obvious - at least for my character.
the only thing i don't like is not getting perks for every level-up - kind of sucks to do it every other one. and with that, i'm not too sure how i like these supposedly new and improved perks. anyway, it's minor compared to everything else considering i feel like i've just scratched the surface.
i'm still really enjoying and it actually hasn't crashed since the first few hours of play.
