Obsidian on Fallout: New Vegas 2 Prospects

Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart comments to Rock, Paper, Shotgun on the possibilities of revisiting the Fallout series after the studio created the well-received Fallout New Vegas. He expresses enthusiasm for returning to the property the former Black Isle developers helped originate, though also notes that the current "disruption of the industry" caused by the life-support phase of the console cycle is an obstacle to making deals with publishers, in spite of their friendly relationship with Fallout owner Bethesda Softworks. Caution aside, he discusses how it would make sense for them to create another west coast version of the Fallout setting, since they are a west coast studio. RPS caps this by paraphrasing a response from Bethesda's Todd Howard, who expresses cautious enthusiasm for another spin of the New Vegas wheel. They promise to publish their complete interview with Urquhart "very, very soon." Thanks nin.

I played on Very Hard... You shoot deathclaws in the legs, when you cripple them then they can't leap attack you... then they can't surround you.

Sniper Rifle + Combat Shotgun with slug ammo.

I personally had more trouble with Cazadores because they are much harder to shoot.

Maybe you played before the DLC was released and the level cap was increased? Being over level 30 broke a lot of things (one of things things I mentioned above, that Deathclaws are actually considerably easier to kill before you get to be too high of a level). A few of the patches supposedly lowered the difficulty of the game too.

Either way, I'm pretty sure my Lanius fight was just bugged, it took me an incredible amount of console work to get the whole dam thing to play off correctly too. If you leave quests in your log too long in these games, they tend to get messed up.

I just loaded the game up vanilla (no mods) and messed around a little bit... I was able to kill a baby deathclaw at level 1 and a regular deathclaw at level 2 on very hard with a hunting rifle... I don't see what sort of outrageous claims I'm making, you can go do it yourself.
