Day 1 purchase bitches! Impressions to follow. Excitement to ensue. Let the internetfap commence.
Yea. It's sitting in my car waiting for me to drive home, splooge all over it, and then throw it in the secksbox.
Also, Simmer, I gave you my gamertag a while back, but you didn't send a request. What's your Xbox tag?
My bad Yeti, I forgot what your tag was. I meant to drop by to ask for it again. Mine is SD Crippler -- anyone here feel free to add me, I already have a few of you on my list.
I heard it's buggy as hell right now. As in, many reviewers can't even go an hour without it freezing up. I'm sure it'll be patched, but I'm going to wait until it is.
I've been asking friends to submit an objective review about the glitches and bugs they've experienced so far. There seemed to be a big discrepancy in the initial reports, some saying its bug-free, some saying it is broken to the point of unplayability. In my own experience (call it about 5 hours, counting afk time), I've had a few minor glitches, but nothing game breaking, and 0 freezes so far. A mole rat got swallowed by a rock. A radscorpion melted into railroad tracks. Doc Mitchell got stuck in a ::climbing stairs:: animation in front of a bunch of shelves. That's really just about it so far, but I acknowledge that Oblivion and Fallout 3 were among the buggiest games I have ever played. With New Vegas, so far so good, but with this game engine you never know what lies around the corner.
That said, the game is awesome. You guys know how awful I am at condensing, so I'll spare you the brick-sized paragraphs and just recommend that you do not walk, but RUN, to your nearest retailer and pick up this game. Hardcore mode is everything I thought it would be -- and more. No joke!
