Shadow77777778-Gossip Gamer says that you will be able to pick your characters background, be able to play as a ghoul character, and drive vehicles, does anyone know if this is true?!?

No, these are old rumors that have already been proven false. Ausir(talk) 01:28, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Ok thanks--Shadow 01:29, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Don't give up on those things though. The community made it happen for Fallout 3, they will likely do it again for New Vegas on account of how similar the engines are. Obsidian might not be giving you that shiney new Corvega but you'll still get one in the end. Or a hoverchair. Or a vertibird. Or a jet pack(My choice). Or a motorcycle. Or a Chimera Tank. Buy New Vegas for PC and you won't have to worry about things like that. TestECull 06:16, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Release date[]

No release dates have been announced. All dates you'll find on retail sites are just guesses, estimates and placeholders. -- Porter21 (talk) 13:24, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Can anyone give me a rough idea of whenabouts "fall" is? Kahlzun 13:27, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
Sometime in October; when the Great War happened. Nitty Tok. 13:28, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
Ah-ha! Very clever. But, don't you mean having-going-to-be-will-happened?Kahlzun 15:40, March 14, 2010 (UTC)

Code on Page[]

There is what looks to be code on the main page: ?UNIQ7fda1a8fcf18922-mainpage-leftcolumn-start-00000000-QINU?. It needs to be fixed. KingArmery 04:53, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

P.S. There is more underneath the "Helping Out" box. KingArmery 04:55, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
See Forum:Glitchy main page. Probably an old version of the portal was still cached, seems it's gone away now. -- Porter21 (talk) 09:21, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Should be mentioned on this page that New Vegas is a spin off and not a sequel.[]

Thanks. 04:23, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

"While New Vegas is not a direct sequel, it will be in the same style as Fallout 3 and will be developed by Obsidian Entertainment, a company founded by some of the developers of Fallout and Fallout 2." in the big box right there. Nitty Tok. 04:27, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

From what I've read, FO:NV has a lot from Van Buren. Perhaps this could be mentioned somewhere? --Radnus 00:47, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Is this going to be a Canon game? or will it go into the same bucket as Tactics, and BoS? Revolverman 12:51, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Sequal, spin off...pfft. Only sequencial stories actually make those words matter. If it is canon, then for all purposes it is a sequal. (Unless all Fallout games are considered spin offs.) Miumaru 18:22, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

It isn't going to involve any characters from the previous games but it happens in the same setting that the previous games took place in so it isn't a sequel or a spin off

I hope Harold in there somewhere. Or his son. He seems to have made it to every other game so far. --J.J.-Lopez 07:30, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

Harold doesn't have a soon, nor will he be able to appear. Bethesda killed off the character in an impressively stupid way. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 07:47, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

Damn, theres another thing im gonna miss. Still waiting to see if there are any deathclaws, or if Tandi makes an appearance in some way. Maybe we get to go to the "institute" and see Dr. Zimmer again. --J.J.-Lopez 01:59, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Deathclaws yes, Zimmer no, Tandi maybe. Nitty Tok. 02:01, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
The Institute is on the other side of the country, so no. I guess it might appear in Bethesda's Fallout 4. Ausir(talk) 08:21, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
Actually this is based before the events of Fallout 3 so Harold could be in this game, cause he hasn't died and he's not planted to the ground yet, but i still wonder how he got from California to D.C. with a tree growing on hes head. I would like to see him as a companion that available through a quest or something. ~~leap~~
No, Fallout New Vegas takes place 3 years after fallout 3. Blestb 07:32, July 31, 2010 (UTC)


FO:NV is next in the cannonical order of events plus it includes cannon factions and sort of picks up some factions such as NRC from the origional fallout series.


does anyone else think the screens we've seen so far in the magazine scans look a bit like fallout 3 with crappy graphics? I don't really like the look of them. Maybe NV will look better in-game.Heineheine 17:17, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Please use the New Vegas forum to discuss the magazine scans or the trailer. This talk page is only for discussing the portal page itself. Thanks. -- Porter21 (talk) 18:17, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

I kinda think the graphics look like a mix of Fallout 3 and Borderlands. But thats just me.

Yeah the NV demos looked super cartooney I didn't really like the way they look.

I think the graphics look a lot better than fallout 3, I don't know what you guys are talking about

what you've seen so far must be a very rough draft of the game and i think the borderland-ish graphics are just to give you an idea before the game is completed. 01:55, September 26, 2010 (UTC)RandomHero

30 September 2010 release date?[]

I've seen on a few sites that the game is coming out on 30 September 2010. Is this true or just a placeholder date?Darth Dan 012 21:02, May 11, 2010 (UTC)

I just pre ordered my copy yesterday and according to Gamespots computer the release date is September 30th, the guy said this was most likely it, i wouldnt count on it staying though, Im thinking a early October release, but its not that big of a change

no the release date is set in october the gamestop paper said the 1st of october MrDot01 01:20, May 21, 2010 (UTC)
See my reply above - no concrete release dates have been announced, all Bethesda/Obsidian have stated is "Fall 2010". All dates you'll find on retail sites are just guesses, estimates and placeholders. -- Porter21 (talk) 01:29, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

This i s a required section i belive[]

Upcoming game[]

The text says upcoming: it is already out in most of the world --Theguyofdoom 18:28, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Weapon mods section[]

Can someone add the weapon mods page to the items section


GhostAvatar 23:58, October 24, 2010 (UTC)

Weapon mods[]

the weapon mods link is missing from the items section --DragonJTSLeave me a message 19:22, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

If you click on the "edit" link in the header of the "Contents" box, you can add pages to the list yourself ;) -- Porter21 (talk) 16:52, November 1, 2010 (UTC)
So I can. i was looking for the green "edit button at the top of the page. still getting used to the new wikia :\ --DragonJTSLeave me a message 22:13, November 1, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the new wikia is pissing me off -Malus X 19:40, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

Website design update[]

Please change the color of links from light blue to something darker, it is getting very very hard to read things.--Xbox Gamertag: uG Lapua 18:51, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

I 2nd that too! Please undo what you did!!! K2chris1983 19:16, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

3rd - the text is totally unreadable. 19:51, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

4th. Please just bring back the old format. was much much better --CpT DiSNeYLaND 16:04, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

5th: Something with a more fallout feel to it would be nice.--Ol'JJ 03:45, December 10, 2010 (UTC)


not to be negative, as i am enjoying the game, but, given all the bugs currently awaiting fixes, i think it'd be helpful, to have a seperate section, for bugs, divided by console. especially, for the benefit, of those playing on xbox, or ps3, which don't have console commands, to get around some of them.--Logopile 10:17, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

I second this 05:54, November 13, 2010 (UTC)Nevrence

to clear up any misunderstanding; i'm saying that, rather than divide the bugs, by what point, or particular, in the game they occur, rather, there should be a general laundry list of bugs, for each format. that way, i don't have to bounce around the wiki, finding out if i've discovered a new bug, for my PS3, or if it has already been documented, and?or a patch is being released, to fix it.--Logopile 17:12, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

More important creatures than Lakelurks?[]

Surely there must be more important creatures than Lakelurks to put in the Creatures list? There's only a couple of locations you can even find them in FNV... --The--dud 12:47, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

I thought about that. But the game is so close to FO3 where Mirelurks are ever present. We can probably take that out as they add DLC +DannyShotgun 19:26, November 30, 2010 (UTC)

Plain Background Can It be changed[]

Can we change the background to black or red, Bit dull and plain Thanks :)

No, we can't. JspoelJspoel Vault Boy 19:50, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Implants needs added to overview portal[]

Implants need to be under SPECIAL etc. in the portal overview list-- 04:11, March 2, 2011 (UTC).

So, I am guessing that Old World Blues WON'T be out before July the 1st? Given the lack of trailer of patch, it seems rather (unfortunately) likely....

yep --Loneranger334

In Love[]

I love this game :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) Rex is my best friend lol

Like, totally!!! Greg (talk) 18:56, December 21, 2015 (UTC)

Most realistic difficulty?[]

Very Easy wouldn't be the most realistic because you deal lots of damage and receive little in return. While very hard makes it so you deal little damage but receive lots in return, so would that make normal the most realistic, because you and your enemies don't deal extra or less damage? Ziebro 19:19, February 21, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure who to direct this to but I've compiled a spreadsheet with hundreds of items that cannot be dropped with cheat codes. They have the same HEX structure as the items listed in the Wiki but are not listed such as the bomber at the bottom of the lake in New Vegas or the dismembered NCR troopers. 20:40, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

game ending[]

can you please make an add on where it lets you finish the campain? like please make it like fallout 3 so you play through and go hard killing the legion and then just go from there.. you can just make it so legate dies and the legion troops just keep respawning there like how if you kill caesar, and also make the enemies respawn faster <3 im the highest level and i completed all the quests so i get bored and resort to killing things(their arent enough things to kill) Bryce_Crispy8

Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Eastern[]

Hi there, I got the Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition during the sale, but ended up with the "Eastern"-Version. I couldn't find much information about it, other than it was apparently published in Eastern Europe by a Russian company (1C or something), includes a different set of languages and that there has been complaints about delayed updates, missing hotfixes and bugs in general. I would like to know, if anyone knows more about the differences between those two versions currently. I don't mind the different languages, since I play on English anyway, but I would like to know whether the game is completely patched/updated/fixed (at least as much as the international version) by now, or whether there are still additional bugs around? I am asking, because I just had the opportunity to perform an exploit with a speech check from Deputy Beagle in my game, which should be fixed according to the exploit page. I can't find any actual information about this matter in English or German, but someone who is able to speak Russian might be able to. ~blub

I would like to know about this as well!
