Excerpt: The room was dark, my eyes slightly opening to adjust to the feint light penetrating through the window. My stomach empty, growling for food to give me energy and water to re-hydrate my body.

Excerpt: Fallout New Vegas: Lonesome Road The courier's saga comes to an end in Lonesome Road, the fourth and final downloadable installment for Fallout: New Vegas. Intended to put a tidy bow on the origin story that's seeded throughout the sprawling game, this chapter naturally has a heavy focus on narrative, eschewing much of the open-endedness we've come to associate with Fallout.
Excerpt: What would you do if your spine was ripped from your body? What would happen if you had a big gun with a dog's brain? Do light switches get along with each other?

Pros: Hysterical writing and voice acting, Quests, weapons, and other facets have a humorous, surreal edge, Lots of interesting secrets to discover, New and intriguing enemies to fight
Excerpt: If you're looking for smart, funny, exciting new gameplay this summer, you don't have to run down to GameStop to find it. Get on Steam, PSN, or Xbox Live Arcade and pick up the Old World Blues DLC for Obsidian Entertainment's Fallout: New Vegas .

Conclusion: This being a Fallout game, it's no surprise that you could run into a number of bugs. These include some enemies you cannot damage or target in the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System because they are standing in water; enemies hovering in midair or clipping into rocks; and non-player characters running around in circles as if their loincloths are on fire. Don't let such typical bugs dissuade you from considering Fallout: New Vegas - Honest Hearts, however.
Pros: A big new area to explore, A bunch of new missions to perform, New level cap, new perks, Interesting choices energize questing.
Cons: Shrugworthy story and characters, The usual Fallout glitches, Formulaic adventure with no signature moments.
Excerpt: After the release of the Dead Money DLC for Fallout: New Vegas , things seemed to be a little up in the air for additional content releases. A few weeks ago, Bethesda and developer Obsidian Entertainment put those questions to rest by detailing three summer DLC releases, all priced at ten bucks. The first of these is called Honest Hearts, and after going through it, I can pretty heartily recommend it to anyone who enjoyed New Vegas .
