    Starting my...3rd? runthrough, now with SUPER-MEGA-ULTRA-HARDCORE

    http://newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=37466

    combined with just the basic one of this (near the bottom of desription)

    http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=36832#fileanchor

    makes this game quite a bit harder...I LOVE IT.

    Traders have bugger all ammo, and don't give you squat for your stuff. enemies (at least at the start) are very tough for your frail little level one body, seriously, I was getting owned by a bloatfly, it's like 4 hits and your dead. I have yet to find a stimpack ANYWHERE, only empty syringes. Food doesn't heal. etc etc. and I love it. Makes it a survival game for me :p

    That song is legit. I drive around blasting it at high volumes for the lulz

    Also FOOK for FNV is pretty craptastic at this point in time. I'll take 1787784573 different mods somehow working in unison for now that you very much

    This game needs another patch pretty soon, like today some time. CTD a bit too often for me...

    Yeah, sometimes an hour or more its ok, maybe the steam client on x64 system needs more refinement. I've noticed couple of times enemies "suddenly" disapear and its like they were practically right next to you.. in a sudden ambush or something.
    I also feel they could have put more items to scavenge around the place, though my first play through is on hard level, maybe they have adjusted it cause' of this. Dunno yet, its only early days for me with this game.

    Nah, it's like this in normal difficulty, too. The level design ain't as good as Bethesda's work (but the dialogue and characters are better.)

    Nothing out of the ordinary; i7 processor, 2x gtx285s, some half decent corsair brand ram and windows 7 64bit.

    Yes, it seems the game is a bit of a rush job cashing in on the popularity of
    Fallout 3.

    pretty awesome rush job then. I think the story and general gameplay has been improved.

    Going to play on hardcore for my 2nd run through, fun times.

    I'm guessing the usual third-party developer thing happened:

    "We know you're only three-quarters as big as us, but we'd like you to make a game based on our IP that's got twice the content, in two-thirds of the time as the last game, with only 70% of the budget."

    apart from the fact NV was worked on by a fair amount of people who worked on FO1 & FO2. yeah, this. Given more time they probably would have been able to flesh out the world that they managed to pull off in the original games

    Hey guys, just wondering how the patches are going for the PC version, I really want the game buy I've heard its a buggy mess.
    Is it playable now or wait longer?

    I have to say wait. Though... I'm not sure if there will be a patch to fix this up 100%. I can't get the game to run for more than 30mins at a time before a CTD occurs. It's very buggy and I've learnt to Quick Save every 30secs or so but it really distracts from the (bloody excellent) atmosphere.
    :(

    Its definately playable, at least under x64 Win7. I only get a CTD after several hours play. Quitting steam and re-enabling it, its runs fine again.

    I almost finished it without patching and didn't run into any CTD's or game stopping bugs, just some broken side quests, minor bugs.

    Easily worth playing now.
