Summary: 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? These are questions you've likely never thought to ask, yet Fallout: New Vegas - Old World Blues answers them with more humor and...
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
Summary: In the Fallout universe, nuclear war has ravaged the country, but religious faith abides. In Fallout: New Vegas - Honest Hearts, men of God struggle to find peace in a land where strife is inescapable--a powerful theme for a downloadable add-on.
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: While the world is still recovering from a nuclear apocalypse, the reconstruction of New Vegas is underway. New Vegas is by far the best looking area since the war happened. Of course, it\'s a huge moneymaker and quite the tourist trap.
Pros: Superb graphics and voice acting; two companions can travel with you now; plenty of quests to do; lots of fun game play to be had here.
Excerpt: The Good: Manages to bring a new vibe to the somewhat tired Fallout gameplay model. The Bad: That itself gets pretty repetitive after awhile. The Ugly: With a whole lotta dying and reloading. I’m really conflicted about the first DLC for Fallout New Vegas – Dead Money.
Fallout: New Vegas: Dead Money DLC Review (PC, Steam)

8 March 2011
Summary: Dead Money manages to overcome its flaws thanks to strong early-adventure content, a great story, and new items that can be taken back to the main part of New Vegas. Despite some real problems, Dead Money is generally worthwhile.
Excerpt: War. War never changes.” OK, actually, that’s not entirely true. If Fallout’s gravelly voiced narrator were really a stickler for accuracy, he’d probably amend his catchphrase to read: “War. War changes slightly.” Make no mistake: Fallout: New Vegas is not Fallout 4.
Pros: Massive, varied, game world; new faction system; challenging Hardcore mode.
Cons: Numerous bugs and glitches; dirt-poor AI; sloppy first-person shooting
Conclusion: Still, I guess hardcore RPG players, those who are after a huge world with plenty of interesting side-quests, will surely find a home here. I know Moesha has and he is as insane and hardcore as they come (in an RPG sense, of course... and in every other sense, now that I think about it).
Pros: Tons of good side quests, Hard core mode makes the game much more satisfying, New game play tweaks expand and enhance the RPG experience, The game feels more like a true successor to the original series, high replayability factor;
Cons: Frequent crashes, Lots of other little bugs, Areas of the game could have used more time with the QA department, Enemies get embedded in the scenery, Main quest line is largely uninspiring.
Excerpt: Obsidian Entertainment has a history of crafting follow-ups to games developed by other studios starting back in 2004 with Knights of the Old Republic II . 2010 has been a unique year for the development studio, as Obsidian not only released their first original IP but also brought out Fallout: New...
