Fallout: New Vegas Diaries, Launch Details

The Bethesda Blog points the way to this new text diary written by Josh (J.E.) Sawyer where the Obsidian Entertainment project director talks a bit about the NavMesh in Fallout: New Vegas, as well as the overall experience of working on their imminent RPG sequel. The blog also embeds the Fallout New Vegas Developer Diary #6 focusing on the voice actors in the game, starting naturally with the return of narrator Ron Perlman, also hearing from Matthew Perry, Wayne "Mr. New Vegas" Newton, William Sadler, and Kris Kristofferson. With the game due tomorrow, the Bethesda Blog also offers details on New Vegas midnight launches and digital unlocks. Finally, they also announce the first DLC for the game, though at this point it is only expected for Xbox 360.

To the guy below, if you think a 100+ hour experience is an expansion pack then I don't know how you'll ever get anything enjoyable out of this gaming industry.

So it's a massive expansion pack. But it's not a "new" game IMO. Same look, same feel, same everything. What, they traded greenish/gray for grayish brown? Still dealing with fucking giant scorpions everywhere you go? Beh.

Look at Quake vs. Quake II, Half Life vs. HL2, those were sequels. These days, Bioshock, GoW, etc, nothing but long expansion packs for the most part.

And you're right. I don't hardly ever get anything enjoyable out of this gaming industry. Maybe one title per year ends up being worth my time/money. At least the GTA sequels still change engines (or use upgraded versions) and are handled by the same developer.

You forgot to mention L4D2 was an expansion for L4D1, that one you'd have a valid point.

If new vegas was an expansion, then so was fallout 2, it had same engine.

You are right that some companies fart out games that are very similar to before so they can cash in (see x-com2 where its almost 100% identical to xcom 1, only underwater. I think they only thing they added was 1 or 2 melee weapons, otherwise the tech tree and research trees were basically identical). But I don't consider new vegas to be that case. They didn't fart it out, its an entirely new game (aside from engine), with a crapton of content.
