YouTuber Many a True Nerd has adapted Fallout: New Vegas into a new interactive Choose Your Own Adventure (or in this case Apocalypse) video series. And much like the books from your childhood you're left with choices to make after a brief setup and proposal. But instead of flicking through pages, whilst keeping a finger at where you left off just in case you die, you're simply directed to the next video.

It's actually a pretty impressive rendition of the game, and one that's a lot of fun to revisit in this fashion. So go on, give it ago. Note that with a reliance on intuitively placed annotations this will probably work best on a computer.

Oh, and don't try and take the shortcut to Vegas right out of the gate. That would be a mistake.

Bethesda Softworks has announced Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition, a collection of all the game's released DLC to-date as well as the main game, available for all three platforms in Australia and New Zealand from February 9, 2012.
For players who are seasoned explorers of New Vegas or just getting into the game for the first time, the Ultimate Edition expands beyond the Wasteland like never before with the Sierra Madre Casino, Zion National Park, Big MT research crater and the treacherous Divide now open for exploring. Along with new areas to explore, each of the four main add-on packs increases the maximum level cap by five levels, ultimately raising the cap to level 50.
You'll also get the smaller add-ons released for the game such as Courier's Stash and Gunrunner's Arsenal really making this the ultimate way to get into the game. That is, of course, if you're not already way too invested in Skyrim's massively epic game-world.

In case you missed it, you can check out our in-depth Fallout: New Vegas review right here (9/10).

While the PC version of Fallout: New Vegas received a rather hefty update early last week, the Xbox 360 version was still awaiting deployment. This happened over the weekend and was immediately followed by reports of system crashes and corrupted save files, leaving Bethesda no choice but to urge players who hadn't received the update, to decline it when next they fired up the game.

Since then, an update for their corrupt update has been applied to all English versions of the game, so if you did suffer any of the above, it's safe to load and apply the new update. For anyone else, you should be all good to go from scratch.

Let us know in the Comments if you had, or are having, any issues with the update.

During the break Obsidian and Bethesda let loose a much-needed patch for Fallout: New Vegas, first for the Pc and soon to follow on the consoles.

According to the Steam listing, the patch addresses a number of balancing issues, including guns, and in some cases even changes the overall use of a weapon, prompting the idea of extended playthroughs. Unfortunately there's no mention of the patch extending the same need for an open ending like Fallout 3, leaving players who've finished the game still locked out of DLC potential (or just wandering the Wastes potential), and having to load earlier saves in order to continue to enjoy all the game has to offer.

Bethesda and Obsidian have released the first trailer for Dead Money, their first DLC episode for Fallout: New Vegas, due to hit the Xbox 360 exclusively from December 21.
As the victim of a raw deal you must work alongside three other captured wastelanders to recover the legendary treasure of the Sierra Madre Casino. In Dead Money, your life hangs in the balance as you face new terrain, foes, and choices. It is up to you how you play your cards in the quest to survive.
While many a Fallout: New Vegas non-Xbox 360 player is likely to be up in arms over the content's exclusivity, 360 players will get an action-packed, all-new narrative adventure with new characters, weapons, enemies and Achievements.

Obsidian Entertainment have patched their buggy, yet awesome Fallout: New Vegas on PC (no word on a console patch just yet), which will apply automatically through Steam.

Patch 1.02 addresses a number of key problems, which we've listed in their entirety for you right here, but as a heads up, here're a few stand-outs:
  • Pip-Boy Interface
  • Perks
  • Skills
  • Chems/Addiction
  • Hardcore Mode
And those are only a few of the key gameplay fixes, there're more along with a heady list of updates for a lot of the game's major quests. Just in time for the December 21 release of New Vegas' first DLC, Dead Money.

IGN have revealed the first DLC release for Fallout: New Vegas, well ahead of the schedule for DLC set by Bethesda and Fallout 3 (maybe it will sneakily ship with some serious patch work).

"Dead Money" will be available for download from December 21, exclusively for Xbox 360, where players team up with three other wastelanders for something of a heist/treasure expedition to recover the Sierra Madre Casino treasure. It's promised we'll see new areas, new quests and new major decisions, though no specifics on desperately need patches or updates were mentioned and there was also no media released.

The new content will cost 800 MS Points (AU$13).

As promised, our Fallout: New Vegas review embargo has been lifted (despite seeing reviews popping up online all day), and so we now have the full AusGamers verdict for you.

So has Obsidian lived up to the legacy left in the wake of Fallout 3? Or have they surpassed Bethesda's efforts given they have actual original Fallout devs working within their walls? Has the game fallen victim to the notion Obsidian often lack in the polish department? Or has working on Bethesda's proprietary engine helped?

We answer all these questions and more in our very own in-depth review.

For Fallout fans counting the days before we have New Vegas, Bethesda have shot through a new trailer showcasing the direction Obsidian have taken elements such as technology and weapons, with a fantastical 50s-inspired future world with which to play with.

They reveal elements about the classic 'ray gun' and how they worked that more cohesively into the game than in Fallout 3, as well as give details on a few new weapons, including a pistol that shoots rifle rounds. Equally, in the sound department, they talk about utilising the vast, open spaces of the desert in which the game is set and just how they approached background noises to properly reflect that while also delving into the game's soundtrack.

The first developer diary trailer from the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas has been released. The trailer kicks off with Feargus Urquhart, President and CEO of Obsidian, introducing the setting of the story (it's Vegas) and then goes on to have comments from a bunch of the other developers that reveal a little more about the game.

You can also check out both our in-depth Fallout: New Vegas hands-on report from QuakeCon, and our equally in-depth interview with the game's producer, Tess Treadwell. We also have heaps more media right here.

As always, you can download or watch below.

Lots and lots of juicy information. That's what we got from Obsidian's Tess Treadwell when we interviewed her at this year's QuakeCon about Fallout: New Vegas. Serving as a producer from the Obsidian camp, Tess proved more than able to answer our die-hard, hardcore Fallout queries, and as suggested above, we got some really neat info out of here.

The interview covers how factions work, how companions work, how big the game is, how many quests there are, what's changed technically, how dynamic it will all be and so much more. This is one Fallout fans won't want to miss.

GamesCom might be making an impact right now, but most of those games won't see the light of your disc-tray until 2011, very soon, however, Fallout: New Vegas will.

But for those who are still on the fence about this one, concerned that it might just be of the "expansion" type, we've put together a new extended hands-on preview from some, well, extended play time we managed to nab at this year's QuakeCon to let you know how it stands alongside Fallout 3, within the Fallout universe and among your "should I buy this?" list.

Continuing our extensive post-show coverage of this year's E3, we've got some Fallout: New Vegas love for you, with a short hands-on that revealed much of what is going to set this game apart from Fallout 3, which should excite fans of both the last game, and the games prior to that.

We also have a video interview coming where we get even more information, but in the meantime, our hands-on preview will give you plenty to digest in the wait to October when the game is finally unleashed and we can all get our "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" on.

The E3 trailer for Fallout: New Vegas is here. The US and European release dates have been announced - October 19th and October 22nd respectively - and we're still waiting on news of the Australian release date but presumably it will be around the same time.

Bethesda have sent along Australia/New Zealand specific details of a limited collector's edition for the hotly anticipated Fallout: New Vegas - a premium version of the game for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that in addition to the game disc will include the following goodies:
  • Lucky 7 poker chips. Each of the seven poker chips was designed to represent chips from the major casinos found on the New Vegas strip and throughout the Mojave Wasteland.
  • A fully customised Fallout: New Vegas deck of cards. Each card in the pack has been uniquely illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game. Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for Fallout: New Vegas!
  • A recreation of the games highly coveted Lucky 38 platinum chip.
  • A hardcover graphic novel All Roads, that tells the story of some of the characters and events that lead up to Fallout: New Vegas. All Roads was written by Chris Avellone, the games creative director, and created in conjunction with Dark Horse Comics.
  • The Making of Fallout: New Vegas DVD. This documentary DVD will contain exclusive video content, including interviews with the developers in which they take you from concept to creation and discuss topics such as story, setting, legacy of the Fallout franchise and more.
Were offering this very cool collectors edition to give fans the opportunity to own some of the items that theyll discover while playing Fallout: New Vegas, said Pete Hines, vice president of PR and marketing. We are also expanding their experience with the game by including a top-notch graphic novel worthy of the Fallout name and a DVD that gives them a behind-the-scenes look at how the game was created.
Complete details can be found in this press release, and of course you can find all current screenshots and the teaser trailer on our Fallout: New Vegas game page.

We've dug up a batch of Fallout: New Vegas screens, direct from Obsidian who are working on the highly anticipated sequel to 2008's Fallout 3.

Overall things are definitely looking very familiar in the tech department, with a lot of the same visual assets clearly being carried across from Bethesda's effort, along with other elements such as the same Pip-Boy HUD and conversation options. But we can gleam a few new tidbits from these which include new mutated enemies, a new companion command wheel and cross-dressing super mutants.

Either way, it's looking good, though we'd really like to see some proper first-person screens and more varied landscapes (different weather perhaps?). Click here for even more.

Anyone who has maxed out their character(s) in Fallout 3 and explored every inch of the main game as well as its subsequent episodes can finally emerge victorious from the Capitol Wasteland and set their sights on a new frontier; the West Coast (oft mention in Fallout 3's story), or as its known to everyone else, New Vegas.

Bethesda have today finally released a teaser trailer for Fallout: New Vegas, which is very much in line with the teaser we got for Fallout 3 but hey, consistency is a good thing in this case, and it looks very tantalising. We've also been given a release window of this year in the "Fall" (our Spring) and in case you missed it, this one is being handled by Obsidian (though still published by Bethesda). Stay tuned for more as it becomes available.
