I was never into pre-ordering anything and am just going to buy it in the store, but that's not stopping me from counting down the days. Cannot wait to play this game.

Until then, I'm using Red Dead Redemption and Claptrap's Robot Revolution (on the 28th) to tide me over.

Did you go all out and get the poker chips?

There isn't anything going for the collectors edition. The last one was great. Bobble head, lunch box. Good stuff. I can't wait for this game to come out!

It`s the 3rd one, if you`re talking about the console game. Fallout 1 & 2 were PC games from the 90`s.

!!!!! Woohoo! My boys have been bugging me for 4 months about New Vegas, maybe this will shut them up for a while. Thanks for the info.

And no, I won't pre-order. Christmas is soon enough.

Yes, another DLC for Borderlands will keep them busy until they get New Vegas for Christmas. Lots of overlap between people that play Fallout 3 and people that play Borderlands.

I'm hoping that Obsidian didn't botch this delivery. They have a history of taking good titles and making a sequel a big 'meh'. (See: Knights of the Old Republic 2, Neverwinter Nights 2)

The game will be a flop unless it includes Neil, a Landrover and a missing ex stripper.

Im looking forward to New Vegas seeing that I went through Fallout 3's main quest three times and completed all the side missions plus DLC. 100+ hours. Damn. At least I dont play WoW.

Got mine pre-ordered at Gamestop. I hope they have a midnight opening for the game. If they do, it's bye-bye sleep, work and friends.

God I can't wait till this comes out. This game is perfect for the shtf/zombie apocalypse people. Might have to watch "The Road" a few times to tide me over till it comes out.

Would the collector's edition include a set of clear heels and some GHP?

I have the Collector's Edition pre ordered and I can't wait to get my hands on New Vegas. Fallout3 was awesome and one of the best games I have ever played.

I am purposefully not getting this one for awhile. I spent so much time on the last one and am scared to go back to the nights of 3 hours of sleep.

Well, see, that's the good thing about Fallout, is that it's both a RPG, and a shooter!

BTW, my Gamestop is having a midnight opening, so I guess I won't be socializing much in..........7 hours.

ive played fallout 3 well over 500 hours total. this is a very conservative estimate. i enjoyed every minute of it. once you get used to the handling of the game, it is very easy to play. VATS will help you any time the screen gets too hectic with bad guys, so it isnt really that hard to master the battle functions. it plays a lot like any other fps. the button layout is different from modern warfare, but not by much. you should definitely pick it up, or at least try fallout 3 used, you can return it in 7 days if you buy a used copy. best game ever. and ive played a lot of games.

I have Fallout 3 and really enjoy playing it,but i have to say that New Vegas doesn't look as good of a game in my opinion.
I guess i'll have to play it sometime to find out for sure.

Very excited for fallout vegas. But I won't preorder it.

Bethesda games always ship buggy. I'll wait for the first patch and avoid some frustration.

I'm watching the walkthroughs in real time on YouTube.

It looks like a slow start, but it has potential... You save your spent brass and can reload it... There are lots more armermant types, and you can load for different properties.. I.e. Hollowpoint, armor piercing, semi wadcutter, etc.

So far the story line has been a little slack, but it's picking up..

I would be locking myself in a room with it, but I'm too buisy dealing with school stuff and projects...
