Fallout New Vegas Honest Hearts Issues

The New Vegas DLC Issues section on the Bethesda Softworks Forums has many reports of problems with the new Honest Hearts DLC for Fallout New Vegas, Obsidian's action/RPG sequel. Some users are experiencing crashes, and others are still struggling with issues stemming from previously reported bugs in the E-DE, My Love side quest from the original game. An update to the Bethesda Blog from Nick, one of the blog's maintainers, explains they are working on addressing these issues: "Frank — we are aware of the issue and are working on a fix for the next patch. That said, if you already have a save game where the bug is occurring, the fix will not apply and you’ll need to revert to an earlier save prior to ED-E leaving in order to play through Honest Hearts." Thanks Eurogamer.

3 topics in a row I entirely agree with Jerykk.


I never finished NV. After a while I just got kind of tired of it. I think that was, in part, because I felt I had been close to the end after slaughtering a few major characters including the entire Legion town, and in larger part because I spent about two frustrarting hours trying to get the girl with the iron fist to acknowledge any of the places I took her but she was bugged and I couldn't start her quest (I was really trying to carefully balance the NPCs I used where and when and found that very unsatisfying, combine that with the bug [the only bug I found] and the fun just quickly drained.)

That was more a function of my compulsion than anything, as well as the frustrating 1 NPC at a time limit. Overall I found it to be an incredibly fun game with almost an overwhelming myriad of choices. Sure, many weren't overly meaningful, but they were there. Fallout 3 really had only a handful of choices other than what to do when (which was the sole choice of Oblivion.)


The conversations you could have with Caeser alone were better than most of Fallout 3, which isn't a knock against Fallout 3 as I had an insanely fun time with that game.

Fallout 3 had better dungeons. New Vegas is better in pretty much every other regard. The quests are much, much more open-ended and the writing is much more mature. Almost every location has a real sense of place within the game world and a real sense of history. Conversely, in FO3, most of the locations had nothing to do with each other and revolved around silly gimmicks (kids in a cave, town built around a nuclear bomb, fancy hotel that somehow avoided being taken over by raiders even though it's the only building in the area, polite cannibal town, etc). The locations in FNV may initially seem more mundane than FO3's but you come to appreciate them more as you explore and learn more of the lore. Simply put, the world and characters of FNV are far more believable than those of FO3.

Both have their own unique strengths and weaknesses. I enjoyed both, trying to compare them? It's like trying to compare red delicious and mutsu. Both are apples, both are tasty and delicious. And you can never go wrong with either of them.

Iirc they already had the design document for Vegas, as it was both left out of Fallout 2 and the original Top Down Fallout 3 (Jefferson). This helped them with the short development time compared the the 4 or so years and budget Bethesda's Fallout 3 got.
The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.

I played through Fallout 3 once a while ago, and don't remember much of it. I've just cracked open Fallout: New Vegas in the last couple of days.

Out of curiosity, which one do you all think is the better game?

The problem with depicting Vegas as having been struck by a nuclear holocaust is that it already looks like it went through a nuclear holocaust.

And here i was thinking to be the only one who found the "new vegas" location an extremely daft choice. There just isn't a whole lot to do in the desert, except sand, rocks, caves and whatever remains vegas has.

Fallout 3 could just have easily moved to Canada, or maybe even China or Europe.

Tbh I think Fallout 3 is far more funnier and more imaginative than Fallout New Vegas is. The maps are better made, with their habitat and hollow things where things were hidden. Bethesda Softworks clearly managed better than Obsidian Entertainment did with that. And regards all bugs - Fallout New Vegas has just been a big problem for me. Game crash without any reason, even when I uppdated it with patches

*cough*subway maps*cough*

I would have to agree, I loved that aspect of the original Fall out 3. All the underground exploring was fun as hell. There is very little of that in Vegas. I would have preferred they make A Fallout LA or Even Better New York. At least we would get a lot more underground subways and such. Plus there is a lack of Military bases to find and explore. Vegas left me feeling flat.

I so love this game but it really frustrates me all the bugs it has. I've been pretty lucky with only a few crashes here & there. But the game really is simply amazing buggy!

So what is the real issue? No one is giving details. What stage of the ED-E quest is bugging Honest Hearts? One of my characters completed the quest and I believe the other never even started it.
