Mark your calendars… we’re only five weeks from the release of Fallout: New Vegas!
After mega events like GamesCom and PAX, more and more folks have had a chance to go hands-on with New Vegas. While you might be a bit envious of the folks that have played the game before you, at least there’s plenty of new coverage to read up on, including new interviews at the following sites…
- IGN Australia discusses the Wild Wasteland Trait and more with Josh Sawyer.
- At PAX, Planet Fallout chats with Pete Hines.

AL: About how many quests will be available when the game releases?
JS: Without giving specific numbers, it’s a lot. On my last playthrough, I had several dozen completed quests in my queue by the end of the game.

At this year’s PAX, Planet Fallout had a chance to play New Vegas. Here’s a snippet from their preview…
“Enemies you encounter throughout New Vegas were refreshingly varied from one another. When I came across a fortified room full of convicts, each one had a different weapon and fighting styles. With only a limited number of action points, I had to make a tactical decision of whether I should take out the sub-machine gunner who popped up from behind his cover, the guy shooting incendiary grenades, or the accurate marksman in the back of the room. I found myself switching back and forth between different weapon types in the middle of fighting in order to deal with the variety of situations in a single shootout more than I did in Fallout 3.”

We close out this round up with some hard-hitting questions I received from Sarcastic Gamer. I’m still scarred by the musical number at the end.
