Great report, my hype-o-meter has shot up.

I will never forgive Obsidian for KotOR 2... but perhaps they may repent with this.

Wow; I am now hella excited (Exactly one metric hella-exicite, to be precise) about New Vegas.
Mainly "We just wanted to make sure the real time stuff was improved. So we did things to improve the responsiveness, we improved in-sight aiming so there's more connection to what your gun is shooting at."
Always just wanted to shoot shit in fallout 3.

I want it I want it I want it I want it I want it.

I don't usually get all hyped up about videogames, but this just has a lot of promise. Don't go letting me down now, Obsidian!

Sounds absolutely awesome. My only problem with it is the faction segment. I dislike the whole faction-style in games, it's one of the reasons I really disliked STALKER: CS. I like F3 because there weren't any real factions you could side with, it was just good / evil.

My only problem so far is the "arcade game" to decide the character's stats at the beginning. I hope it isn't some really bad mini game that is frustrating or boring.

Obsidian has a history with the Fallout series, they will probably keep their promises and exceed them.

Holy crap, this actually looks good. I know I'm probably alone in my opinion here, but Fallout 3 was a huge disappointment to me. New Vegas' Hardcore mode and reputation stuff sound promising, though.

OMFG i cannot WAITTTTTTTTT... this is shaping up to be everything I had hoped fallout 3 would be. don't get me wrong, i loved fallout 3, but this seems more in the spirit of the original 2.

Dear Escapist: Stop it. Now. I don't want to get hyped for another game. I just don't have enough money. You just made me want this game so much more...

I would like a little thing just called making a choice over some skill or ability tested in a mini game. If I want to be a bruiser let me choose that, if I want to be a stealthy character, etc. Trying to have some gimmick which will just make it harder (and perhaps demand reflexes) to be able to have the type of begining stats I want the character to have is a mistake. Five minutes can seem a long time if they are boring.

Bring it on!
This is most certainly into my "must have" list for the year, now. Shoot, it was almost there from the initial announcement!

Lets hope it will be less buggy then F3... but then there that memory of KotOR in dark corner of my mind.
