I admit it. I'm a bit fanboyish over Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout 3 is my favorite video game I have ever played, so the sort-of sequel has me in full-on anticipation mode. Sure, it's being developed by a different company than Fallout 3, but Obsidian are awesome, and I don't care; I just want to go back to the wasteland.
One of the things that makes Fallout 3 so epic is the scope of the game: It's beyond huge, and constantly rewards exploration with secrets, surprises and awesomeness. And it's looking like New Vegas will follow in its predecessor's footsteps: Pete Hines of Bethesda Softworks said in an interview with USA Today that New Vegas "is a massive game world that will take you hundreds of hours to explore every nook and cranny."
Oh, I'll be exploring those nooks and crannies, Pete, I'll be exploring them good.
Here are more details on the game, and below is the teaser trailer:
