Duck and Cover has some screenshots from a trailer that was briefly online for Honest Heart, which is apparently the titled of the next DLC for Fallout: New Vegas. The trailer was quickly pulled, but will presumably be officially launched soon enough.

As for feeling overwhelmed, that never really happened to me in either game. I put over 100 hours each into FO3 and NV and over 300 hours into Oblivion. As long as there's enough compelling content to keep me playing, I'll keep playing until I've seen it all.

I probably put 70 into FO3, not that I remember, I'm at least at 40 in NV and I'd guess over, would probably be 100 by the time I'm done, and I put 80 into each playthrough of Oblivion.

I still consider all 3 among the best games of the past few years, without any hesitation.

My last save before I quit playing shows 120 hours. The only part of the main quest I have done is get to Vegas and retrieve the chip from Benny. I decided not to give it to Mr. House yet, and instead I finished some side quests I had taken on. I planned to finish Boone's quest, then go back and pick up Veronica before I carried on with the main quest when the last patch came out breaking Boone.

Like I said, breaking Boone seemed like such a huge fuck up, I figured they would have released a fix for it soon, so I put my game on hold. That was 4 months ago.

I'm taking my time in New Vegas. I don't feel rushed to complete the main quest, so I'm exploring and doing pretty much every side quest I come across along the way. I was in no rush to get to New Vegas. To give you an idea of how much time I'm taking, my first save game I made just outside the gate before entering Freeside shows a play time of 75 hours, and my Steam profile says I've played New Vegas for 208 hours.

I did have to revert several hours of play when I ran into one of the broken quests. I also like to see all of the dialog outcomes, so I quick save before speaking to someone, make my choices and then make a hard save. I load the quick save and try out all possible options, but I make myself stick to my initial choices. I also re-played some side quests that could be done fairly quick just to see how they play out in different ways, but again I make myself stick to my first choice. I'm also playing in hardcore mode and not using fast travel.

My first play of FO3 was pretty quick. The main quest felt urgent, so I stuck to it only taking/completing side quests if they were along my way. I didn't let myself get side tracked. You miss out on a lot by doing that. I used a free play after main quest mod to continue playing, finding every location and doing all of the side quests I could find. I think by the time I was done it was well over 200 hours.

Then I got the FO3 GotY. I was going to start a new game, but I decided to enable all but the Broken Steel add-on and loaded my last save to play through the Operation Anchorage, The Pitt, Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta add-ons. After those were done it was over 300 hours.

I then started a new game of FO3 GotY from scratch with some mods (ammo weight, needs etc.), but I didn't finish it before New Vegas came out. I was taking my time to explore more rather than sticking to the main quest path.

After waiting a month for New Vegas to get fixed, I went back to Fallout 3. I'm going to finish this play of Fallout 3, and hopefully by then, New Vegas will be fixed up and I won't forget what I was doing when I left off.
