Sandru, New Vegas is definitely worth a play-through, just think of it as a large expansion pack rather than a true sequel. The gameplay quality is at least as good as FO3, and the writing and quests are much better. I think there are something like 2-3x the number of quests as FO3 and most of them are quite interesting. One other thing the game did really well was give you several large scale moral choices that directly affected the outcome of the game, and the society. NV is one of the few games that has done this right.
I don't remember the game being terribly buggy but I do remember tons of invisible walls; Nothing was more infuriating than climbing a mountain only to not be able to reach the summit because it was surrounded by invisible walls, and the devs didn't want you to get there before the related quest. Also, lots of high-powered enemies that prevent you getting to certain areas too early. Fucking cazadores.

Cazadores can break a man. I tried to get to the Great Khans and took the Cazadore infested route that brought me to tears....
It was a hard day indeed.

I hate Cazadors to the point that I just used to use the alien blaster on them, I don't even care how cheap that is, the assholes deserve it.

You can enjoy a grander sight
By climbing to a greater height

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.

Cazdors earned my hatred too they always got my longest range, highest damage weapons.  I preferred fighting Deathclaws.

I've seen it, might need to build a games capable PC again or upgrade my Macbook; I doubt it'll run well on an HD3000.

I don't remember NV being littered with bugs, at least not to the degree that most people have said. I remember someone telling me that NV was so bad, that it was unplayable and it baffled me completely, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if that was just the 'cool' thing to say at the time.

That was my experience as well. It had bugs, but compared to the initial release of Morrowind it was nothing. At no point was my save game obliterated.

I was actually in my local Game retailer the other week and a guy said that he avoided it, because everyone told him that there were millions of bugs in NV, that made it unplayable. Me and the two cashiers looked at eachother (IE the people who had actually played the game) looking incredibly confused by that statement. So I really think that it was just the cool thing to say at the time, I had the game on launch on PS3 and didn't encounter any problems, other than my PS3 bricking half way through the story campaign, forcing me to start it again but again, that's not really the game's fault.

On a side note, I've pre-ordered the Pip-Boy edition of Fallout 4, can't wait! :D

Bah! I missed out! I'm still looking around for one. It's okay if i don't get one I'll still duct tape my phone to my arm while I play if I have to.

Also, http://www.bethblog.com/2015/07/24/fallout-shelter-august-update-android-mr-handy-and-new-threats/

Can't wait to try that. Any iOS people already playing it?

It's entertaining for a short while but I've not found much to keep me coming back to it. Still worth an install once it comes to android I think, if only for the 'it's fallout' aspect.

The game sounds better and better everytime they reveal more
* Customizable Power Armor and Weapons
* Power armor that acts like an Iron Man suit (Which I think is a great representation for Power Armor)
* Companion Romance regardless of Gender (Yes)
And probably even more to make my nips hard.
But it'll help

The games sure to be amazing, and the prospects of what quality Modding can do, make it even better. :)

I think the console versions suffered a bit from what I've heard. I played it on PC on launch, and can't say that I remember encountering any serious bugs. Personally, I blame Sony and Microsoft's patch policy (devs have to pay extra to release patches for their games).
