8 Things in Fallout: New Vegas to Make BIS Proud

IGN thinks that New Vegas is the Fallout game that the fans have been waiting for.
Here are two samples:
Drinking out of toilet bowls
Pretty much everything about Hardcore mode recalls Black Isle's Fallout games: the way your companions die, leaving you all alone out there in the wastes; the way a crippled limb or radiation poisoning can lead to a slow and inevitable death; the way everything in the entire wasteland, from the wildlife to the water, is trying to murder you. But there's nothing that depresses us quite so much as lapping irradiated liquid from a toilet bowl to stave off death by dehydration.
In Fallout 1 or 2, when you ran across a hulking Deathclaw, you scampered off the isometric battle grid just as fast as your Action Points would let you, and usually not before it killed you in one swipe. In Fallout New Vegas, they're just as tough. Pretty much nothing less than a nuke will stop one, no matter what your level or how many bullets you pour into them.
