Today on G4TV.com, you can check out an exclusive gameplay walkthrough of one of New Vegas’ quests, Beyond the Beef. Watch the video as Obsidian designer Eric Fenstermaker joins X-Play’s Morgan Webb to walk you through the questline.
As the game gives plenty of details on the questline, be warned that the video contains some spoilers.
Update: Also, be sure to tune into G4TV tonight at 6:30 EST (check local listings for the time in your area) — X-Play is premiering a half-hour special for Fallout: New Vegas. And if you miss it, we’ll be sure to put the footage up on the blog.
We’re back with the fourth video diary for Fallout: New Vegas. This time around, the developers at Obsidian Entertainment discuss how factions impact your adventures in the Mojave Wasteland. The video includes background details on the game’s three major factions — the New California Republic, Caesar’s Legion, and Mr. House.
If you’ve missed any of the previous diaries, head over to our YouTube Channel to catch up.
Fallout: New Vegas Senior Designer Chris Avellone has a new diary up on the Fallout official site. In the diary, Chris talks about his experience returning to the Fallout franchise. Here’s a quick look…
“To have the chance to come back to Fallout when you thought it was closed off to you was something that surprised all of us. The opportunity to work with Fallout: New Vegas is not just something I’ve been grateful and happy to be a part of, it was something the future held in store that exceeded all my expectations.”
Read the rest of the diary, which includes a piece of concept art for Mr. House, here.
A lonely shack, slowly rusting in the dry heat of the Nevada sun. But what oddities are contained within? Traps? A crazed Prospector? Moonshine? The guide knows all….
Sometimes you need to take a moment from your massacring of the Viper Gunslingers, and gaze out across the arid plains where sharecropper farmers are eking out an existence using a mixture of chutzpah and NCR-owned water. Or, go swimming in Lake Mead, and drink as much radiation-free H2O as you can… before you’re set upon by savage Lakelurks. Where the Capital Wasteland was a pock-marked mess of radioactive hot-spots and shacks containing madmen named Dave, the Mojave Wasteland has much more of its natural environment intact. New Vegas contains just as many shack-dwelling madmen. Perhaps the most deranged is known as No-Bark Noonan. He lives with his shotgun traps and showroom dummy friends.
