    I'm having few problems with bugs either, just some performance issues (I have a high end Alienware with dual gfx cards but it lags like hell whenever I go into dialogue with someone or trade goods - and that's with graphics on High rather than Ultra, which I was able to use in FO3 easily). I had a couple of crashes in quick succession but verifying file integrity, or whatever that feature on Steam is, stopped it.

    This game is really, really good. I enjoyed Fallout 3 too but the tweaks in this game make it even better from a gameplay perspective. It's very addictive and eats away hours. The NPCs are still on the bland side and story presentation will never be the strong point in a game like this, but the fun of the gameplay makes up for it.

    It's also pretty tough, already been owned by giant radscorpions several times. I have a shoot and run policy with them still at level 8.

    D3D fix didn't work for me unfortunately. The only problem I am having is a fuckload of lag every now and then when NPC's are in my FOV. I ran Fallout 3 maxed out when it was released without such issues so I know this isn't the problem Bethesda introduced (reminds me of the stutter in Alpha Protocol, never seen something like that in any Unreal engine game).

    What is odd is that I wiped out the legion camp and finished the Hoover dam battle with fuckload of enemies on-screen and no lag, while rest of the time with even one Brahmin on screen game would have a heart-attack. Annoying.

    Anyways, finished it once, going to wait for more updates before I replay it. :M




    PS: Vault 11 mission was very well done. Reminds me of the movies like Irréversible.. well, the way it's presented at least.

    NV ad campaign must be massive. Back when Oblivion came out you saw some ads in specialist stores and same with FO3. NV comes out, and there are huge ads at subway stations and bus stations. It's a buggy stand-alone addon. Wtf.

    Your ignore list.
    Circ, what the hell? You just can't say these things in here, it's wrong.

    This is how you do it without being called an ignorant dumbfuck.

    Spoils what? The fact that you kill people? :M (Vault quest I mentioned doesn't include rape like the movie listed.. so still no spoilers.)

    Anyways anyone here bothered upping the Survival skill at all? Has to be the most fucking useless skill so far (unless you like cooking). I should've lowered it to 1 on second playthrough.. :/
