MCV has word that Bethesda Softworks has unveiled Fallout: New Vegas,
a new RPG set in the Fallout universe being developed by Obsidian (Star Wars:
Knights of the Old Republic 2, Never Winter Nights 2, Alpha
Protocol). Details are scant for now: Word is the game will use the
Fallout 3 engine, but will not be a Fallout 3 sequel, and will be released
for PC and consoles next year.
Given the scope of their games I think Bethesda does a good job polishing their releases. If they were making little adventure games or something then I wouldn't be so forgiving but in something so big it's pretty hard to rigorously test everything.
Exactly. Most of the complaints from Jerykk are pretty minor in a game this huge and open. The original Fallout games had a TON more bugs, as do almost all releases of this size. For the kind of game Bethesda makes, they are the most polished in the business.
