My System Specs

Default Fallout: New Vegas

Who else picked the game up today? Pre-downloading on Steam FTW.

Although I am finding the game extremely buggy. V.A.T.S. is completely unusable to me as it drops to about 1 FPS.

And an hour of play got me two crashes.

I mainly went through the opening scene, selected my character and type and visited a few building so far. I know my msi 465 GE would have no issues with it but i could over-drive it with sli....i need some bad influence!

Is this new gameplay compared to Fallout 3? Or just more like a content expansion with a few minor improvements?

It is a separate game with a separate story.

Haven't picked up New Vegas but all this Fallout talk has inspired me to give F3 another go!

My bad, I meant the gameplay. Not if it's a standalone product. Still using the same VATS system and stuff?

Got it but haven't started it yet. Still can't get passed the final battle in Dragon Age which is starting to get on my nerves! I loved FO3 and all the DLCs so I am really looking forward to this one.
