Such a good game, if you havent already got it this is a must buy.

Interested buy not normally a fan of dlc is the Ultimate edition really worth it considering its double the price.

Unless you're a hardcore completionist, I would say no.

I would go for the following really:

Main Game
Courier's Stash
Old World Blues

That would total £3.72 and there's enough there to keep anyone occupied for a long time to come.

Alternatively the Ultimate Edition has been on sale with 75% off before so you could just wait and see what the rest of the sale brings. I do have other gun packs on mine but those aren't available on Steam any more anyway and aren't included with the Ultimate Edition.

Yes it is worth it for the extra DLC I bought them all on the Xbox full price and bought this on the PC again its that good (IMO)

I've been contemplating Nether myself today but the reviews weren't good at all. Seems like a poor man's DayZ unfortunately.

New Vegas is a game that is worth making time for and the modding community for it is still great.

Yeah it is very cheap and so far I've only faltered once during this Steam sale when I bought both of the PayDay's over the weekend.

I invested a lot of hours in the PS3 Ultimate Edition and loved it but the lag the deeper you get into the game was horrible.

Does this run/ play better on a PC?

Generally yes, but you can get a lot of mods to fix problems with it anyway and make it more memory aware. If you play this on the PC then it's a good idea to use mods anyway.

The only problem I've found is that it was never made compatible with Steam cloud save. Sadly I found that one out the hard way.

Same for me. Just picked up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Hitman: Absolution. Probably won't play either for a while, but couldn't say no to the prices

Again, that one is just phenomenal. I'm a sucker for Bethesda RPG's though.

Just started playing it again myself over the weekend actually. I'm not finished with modding it so far but it is pretty amazing what you can do with it.

Any tips on mods, before I start?

Yes modding tips please, that looks amazing. Can you mod mid save game ? or do you have to start over ?

Yes you can but the best tip that I can give is to download and use this tool.

nexusmods.com/sky…59/?

A lot of mods are now interdependent and that will emulate loading Skyrim with your mods in sequential order and tell you where (if at all) you're going wrong. The game doesn't do that and just quits out unfortunately.

Most of that has been achieved using this:

nexusmods.com/sky…36/?

There is one extra realistic lighting addon that I can't remember the name of right now but I can check when I get home later. It's running at 1440p there but that was before I added the 2K texture pack so it actually looks slightly better than that now.

I decided to play this the other day....to be honest to my eyes , it is starting to look a tad dated , i guess that is because i have been playing new titles recently....

hmmmm interesting stuff , might look into this

Went with standard version for now that bring up 400 games on steam.

Worth getting this + Skyrim for the mods. I think I've got about 30 mods on New Vegas all running in harmony...love modding HEAT

Absolutely brilliant game, well worth that money!

This is what it looks like vanilla so it's still decent if you don't want any of the hassle. I'd say it's still definitely worth modding though.

I don't know why but I never felt the same about this one as I did with Fallout 3. I found it harder to like it. It wasn't terrible and still a fun game but I much prefer FO3 personally

Fallout 3 has a deeper story but I prefer this one as a game. I've never played much of the old FO games but I believe this one stuck a lot more to the formula of those where as FO3 was more like a classic Bethesda title.

I'm tempted to get it again but I donno, it was the theme mostly, the big gambling feel to it, i.e vegas etc. Also the fact it was less mutants and more humans than anything.

I preferred the setting and feel of FO3 I guess.

Amazon US have just price matched (and beaten) The Ultimate Edition at £3.99

Banned

hmmmm interesting stuff but a bit cunfusing

Doesn't play well with ultra widescreen monitors.:(

I get £4.99, I'm doing something wrong?

Yeah I just went to buy and it's £4.99

New Vegas is still looking good.

I bought it not long ago - the goty edition (with the dlc) for £15... so... heat :P

Same. Somehow it felt forced and not the sprawling genius of FO3.
