Fallout: New Vegas Guide
Unofficial Fallout: New Vegas Guide by Absolute Steve for SuperCheats.
We're working with Absolute Steve again to bring you a complete guide to Fallout 3, many of the pages have tons of content already, check out especially the Mojave Wastlands Map and the Game Tips and Tricks pages. This guide will be updated on a very regular basis until it is complete. We recommend you bookmark this page.
The series of guides I've made for Fallout 3 was created with the intention of not leaving a single irradiated stone unturned, but there's always room for improvement. This guide is the result of many days and nights of long labour, so here's hoping you'll enjoy the redesign of the layout, and may the in-depth strategies and vast descriptions greatly enrich your gaming experience. In any case, be sure to like this guide on facebook (see link above) and tell your friends about this guide!
Fallout New Vegas does feel like a very stretched DLC and hardly has graphical improvements over Fallout 3, but that doesn't take away any of the fun. The game mechanics have been tweaked with, making the game harder and more balanced. There are minigames now, there's still plenty to explore, but the 'Fallout 3' feeling is gone (duh, it's Vegas!), the point being that the game doesn't really breathe the same atmosphere as Fallout 3 both in terms of exciting storytelling and areas. There are once again numerous annoying bugs that shouldn't exist, long loading times included , especially on the Xbox 360. Resetting your Xbox can sometimes do wonders combined with clearing the cache, though. All in all, the game has its improvements, but is hardly as epic or revolutionary as it's big brother. As such, be glad it's not called Fallout 4. :) On a closing note I do want to mention that some events in FNV are painfully unfunny, sometimes even disgusting and on the border of acceptable as to what you can put into a video game. This has nothing to do with gore, more so with ethics. Some of those people at Obsidian should give me a call - as a psychologist student I'd gladly study them as field cases.
Supercheats.com is the only home for the enhanced version of the guide, which will appear here soon, featuring video content at tight spots that might require additional assistance.
