7 September 2013
Excerpt: ld World Blues is the third expansion to hit New Vegas, and this one is arguably the pick of the bunch.

Conclusion: Fallout's modern interpretation may have started to show its wrinkles, but Old World Blues remedies an aging formula by resurrecting the series' latent dark humor and pushing it in the spotlight.
