Summed up info:
- In the beginning of the game you are shot and left to die in the mojave desert. A robot called Victor finds you and brings you to the small village Goodsprings where a Dr. Mitchell fixes you up again.
- That is when you can customize you character, which is like in Fallout 3.
- But this time you can change the AGE of your character.
- Vit-O-Matic replaces the GOAT test.
- Weapons can be customized, have scopes or larger ammunition magazines.
- But in hardcore mode every bullet weighs and you can die of thirst in the desert. Medicines don't heal broken bones in this mode as well. For this you'll need to see doctors.
- You'll be able to have companions again. But as in Fallout 3 they are not as necessary for the gameplay as in games like Dragon Age: Origins.
- Via a radial menu you can give your companion orders.
- There'll be a new VATS-feature called Fore. It is an individual melee attack for any weapon.
- Like in Fallout 2, New Vegas will have geckos.
- There'll be a reputation system, that gives you advantages or disadventages based on your behavior for the cities and factions.
- The barter skill will give you not only the chance to lower prices, It'll give you new dialogue options as well.
- There's a faction of first generation mutants with human like intellect that can be set in conflict with the standard mutants. Their leader is called Gracy and wears that funny peruke.
- The game will be like Fallout 3 from the atmosphere and gameplay. New Vegas will focus more on character interaction.
- The world of New Vegas matches the Wasteland.

Until now it looked to me like a standard action game, but the fact that it is developed by Obsidian Entertainment makes it interesting. Obsidian is known for Nevewinter Nights 2 and is currently developing Fallout: New Vegas. So they know RPGs.
Brush the dust off your Wii, here comes the trailer for Super Mario Galaxy 2 fresh from the Nintendo Media Summit. Super Mario Galaxy was one of the few games that kept me on the Wii mote a little longer and the sequel looks like it'll be the same fun. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is out in april in the US and in june in the EU.

I'm still not sure if I'll have the time and finances to pick this game up next month, but all I've seen yet of it looks nice. Propably I'll give it a try, still I am aware of that it is a J-RPG which have become incredibly low qualitity this gen compared to W-RPGs. I won't spoil me with watching this vid, but you can decide for yourself.

Interesting. Mark Rein, president of Epic Games, thinks gaming on the iPad could be a big thing. Epic worked on a code of the Unreal Engine 3 for the iPhone and is about to release it soon to license partners. Also Mark Rein thinks that portable devices will soon be as strong as a Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.

For 400 MS points for the Lost in Nightmares Mission and another 160 for the new costumes the DLC comes cheaper than I thought. Alone that Barry is included and gives the infected headbutts so that their heads explodes makes this DLC a should have.
I've been a fan of the series since years. And I watched the final and everything back in 2009. Now here's the game and there's one thing that pisses me off: Why the hell can't I play Michael or Lincoln? Instead the devs introduce a new nobody character, just like in Lost The Game. Man, what a waste of potential.
