Fallout: New Vegas could be described as one of the most anticipated games of the year, successor to 2009's Game of the Year: Fallout 3. With a new city and tons of extra features added to the series, fans are licking their lips in anticipation for Obsidian's upcoming Fall Release of this sure-to-be top-selling game. Fallout: New Vegas' first ever game preview funnily enough comes in the form of an article by USA TODAY, rather than conventional gaming magazines. This of all coincidences, should hint at the global importance of such a game.

Las Vegas survived Crime Scene Investigation and Wayne Newton, but it will never look the same after it gets the Fallout treatment.

In the alternate-history video game Fallout: New Vegas, coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PCs this fall (no price and not yet rated), the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding area in 2280 bear the effects of a nuclear holocaust more than 200 years earlier during a great war between the United States and China.

The mystery is, who are you in this nuclear wasteland?

    One complaint from my part; we go from overused vault dweller start which was at least unique to the games, even if it was used in every one, to being a courier caught up in bad business trying to figure out what's going on?

    Out of the frying pan, eh?

    Still we don't care about that really, s'long as the world is expansive, immersive and deep then it's all good since that's where most of the story is at anyway.

    Any world with drag queen Super Muties in it looks like it's going to be at least as deep as F3. The whole courier-left-for-dead thing sounds just a tiny bit like a bad western, but we're in Nevada so I guess that's appropriate
    The differing rep with different factions might be a slight pain in the arse to keep on top of, but I'm guessing it'll be good for replay value as you side with one, then the other.

      Actually one could simply say that he meant the GOTY edition of Fallout 3, which did come out in 2009, thus there was no mistake

    You're right Aussie Legend. A typo on my part.
