or maybe people are asking and they're just answering
They've been talking about New Vegas for the past two weeks. I take this as a sign they are making another one?
first NV news got some good clicks, other outlets went out to do their own new vegas news. not that surprising
This. I doubt the game would have been significantly better with just a PC only budget.
Well yeah, every multiplat game is.
That doesn't paint the whole picture for games though.
New Vegas could have been better if they weren't given such a small amount of development time.
Witcher 3 wouldn't have even been as big as it was if it wasn't developed for consoles as well.
Even if games are technologically limited by consoles, they still need to be on them to be financially viable.
But I will say, I played over 100 hours of New Vegas on 360 when it came out and loved every minute of it, glitches be damned. It was good enough to rise above the technical limitations.
That probably wouldn't make Obsidian feel much better about any grief they got for the issues the game had, but they managed to put out a classic despite all that. And I think NV is one of those games where its reputation will continue to grow as times goes on and more people discover it.
So did i
Well yeah. Video games in general are limited by consoles.
But I will say, I played over 100 hours of New Vegas on 360 when it came out
And would easily say more than 10 hours were waiting for saves to load. God damn they got long as hell the further you went into the game.
Not to mention the cut content that was still present in the game files, most of it intact.
Thankfully with mods sooooooo much strangely natural functionality can be implemented again. Iím a big fan of lighting mods that add actual power grids and new sources all around.
Modded New Vegas da GOAT.
When readded back to the games (and with some tweaks), the behavior is so natural it's scary. And sad, a lot of the content missing was great!
It's still easily in my top 5 Xbox 360 games and always will be.
Once you start going into the tiny mountain area it just becomes obvious how miniature it is. Never really bought the weird mutant story either. It was too cartoony for my tastes and this theme.
Modded New Vegas is okay. You can only dress something up so much. I could never go back tot this dated engine. I despise it.
On the other side there is Skyrim, same engine? I cant handle its bad and fiddly UI in the inventory, doesnt fit the settig at all and looks like a scifi game. They should implement the tactical combat from the fallout series as optional choice. Maybe ill give it another shot some time as i liked Oblivion and loved Morrowind.
Or that GTA V didn't have as many issues
Or working for actual-satan Bethesda and getting no development time, then not getting bonuses cause it didn't hit metacritic targets
Consoles opened the game to a wider audience. We were ready for more after Fallout 3 and we got it in spades.
Well of course... but the game probably wouldn't have been made to begin with if it were a PC exclusive.
So it's more accurate to say, Consoles made Fallout New Vegas possible.
