Have to say, the Collector's Edition looks fantastic. If that is the actual date, I will be both happy and annoyed. Happy because I will still have student loan left to buy it with, and annoyed because that's the weekend I'm in London for Eurogamer Expo.

Thanks for the info! Great start to this Fallout fan's day

Glad to hear it, pretty much spreading this info to generate a little happiness. The more people who can get in on this deal, the better. :P

Could this be a collectors edition with stuff I might actually find interesting?! MY GOD!

I also hope that release date isn't too different from the real and/or PAL release, seen as my birthday is on the 6th of that month

Well a preview have been released.

Thouse grey super mutants looks cool. Also nice to see that the supermutants in the west are smarter then the ones in the east. At least the ones in the west seem to be able to talk better then the Hulk, but maybe it's just a side effects of the way they were created.

Looking forward to the E3 stuff about New Vegas. I'm glad I have friends going there to give me near-instant feedback if I ask nicely enough.

Space based weaponry? Hmm. Maybe I'll be able to use it more frequently than I did in Fallout 3.

Can't wait for this game. The fact that it's being developed by Obsidian means theres a good chance it'll only be partially finished, but no matter what, it'll have a great story and the world will be fully realized.

GUHHHH, SO SHORT DX

Still, some 'actual' footage instead of stills is welcomed. I look forward to returning to that world, even if it pretty much is just Fallout 3.5.

In the meantime, I'm re-renting Fallout 3 from gamefly to attempt to complete the various achievements and such that I failed to do when I owned the game.

Still waiting to post the videos for the Dev Walkthrough of the E3 demo as gametrailers videos AREN'T FUCKING WORKING.

GREAT JOB GUYS, YOU HAVE A SITE DEDICATED TO GAME-FUCKING-TRAILERS AND YET DURING THE BIGGEST WEEK OF THE GAMING INDUSTRY, YOU HAVE A HUGE HICCUP THAT SCREWS OVER A LOT OF CANADIAN USERS AND A COUPLE US ONES.

I normally don't type in all caps but I really want to choke a bitch over this whole thing. I'm being denied my delicious sampling of the Mojave Wasteland because GT can't be bothered to get their 'key site devs' off their lazy asses and do something about the site.

*foams at the mouth* WANT VIDEO NAOOOOOOOOO! *barks and snarls like a rabid dog*

I preordered, too, which means I desperately need to get some work done on Halo Reach... and not Plants Vs. Zombies (so good!).

Can't wait for this game. I'm a huge Fallout fan, and the fact that NV is being developed by most of the original dev team is just amazing. My friend preordered the collectors edition for me as a birthday gift, so now it's just a matter of playing the waiting game.





The waiting game sucks, lets play Hungry Hungry Hippos!
