    Perfect for those who want to try TTW (Tale of Two Wastelands) project but hate Steam!

    Huh. It is true that it won't be on the way as Steam does when having it heavily modded.

    Am I wrong or is this the first time New Vegas is available without a mandatory Steam install on PC?

    I think so. I had to recover my Steam account to play the retail copy.

    I'm pretty sure. The W10 Xbox thing doesn't seem to provide it either. And it wasn't really never ruled by Games for Windows, thank god.

    Just bought New Vegas even though I already own copies of the regular retail version, collector's edition, ultimate edition, and now the GOG edition.

    I doubt I will be removing the Steam version soon but now I have options.

    I've had a habit of migrating stuff to GOG from my Steam library when GOG offers the game on a good sale. This happened now with New Vegas too. Maybe the barrier to start the game to finally get my NCR run properly going gets lowered for not losing interest at Steam log-in.

    I still remember that huge box they released for Fallout Anthology, which consisted into one single steam code for all the games. Not only there was a DRM, but you couldn'T even give to your buddiges some of the games that you already had.

    I picked both up, just to see if Bethesda or CDProjecktRed fixed the multi-core issue in F3. So far, it looks like the latter fixed it, what a shock, but they've not removed the LIVE prompt from the start screen. Haven't clicked it, but the fact that it's there means the No LIVE mod still has some use.

    EDIT: I stand corrected. As soon as I edited the .ini file of F3, and added even basic mods like Fellout, crashes on start. Guess CDPR can't polish a turd.
