More of the people playing through the same 1-hour demo, so get ready for another series of functionally identical previews. 1Up.<blockquote>I continued to wander the streets looking for my targets, and in doing so became distracted by the gated entrance to the main Strip. Figuring I could find a way past this gate to explore the Strip, I approached it and noticed several Securitrons (the robots that were digging up the grave in the New Vegas teaser trailer). Nearby was a man named Old Ben; he kindly warned me that I would need to either have 2,000 caps or a passport to pass through the gates to the Strip. Nonsense. I'll just shoot my way through past the robots, looting their body for a key in the process. That was the plan, anyway, and was encouraged to do so because apparently someone tried the exact same thing earlier in the day. I started to litter the ground in front of the locked gate with plastic explosives. As soon as one of the Securitrons rolled over it... kapow! Unfortunately, things didn't go according to plan. Before I could get to a safe distance, they opened fire, and I was killed rather quickly. I reloaded my save file and decided to go look for some hired guns -- mercenaries if you will -- to help me in my endeavor. I found some hanging out at a nearby house, and hired one of them to come help me out.</blockquote>GameSpot.<blockquote>We then restarted from our original position, and decided to try a less homicidal approach, maybe even talk to a few characters before shooting. We followed our compass to the New Vegas gates which were guarded by "Securitron gatekeepers"--giant police robots with a comical retro-future look that could've come out of The Jetsons. The metal monsters were basically giant steel boxes mounted on a unicycle wheel with an antenna on top and a TV monitor display in front showing an exaggerated cartoon caricature of a grumpy policeman. One police robot immediately approached us once we neared the door and demanded the right to run a "credit check" on us--which essentially meant that we had to either attain passport documents (through a series of quests), bribe it with 2,000 bottle caps (which we didn't possess at the time), or hack it using the science skill (our character's skill was insufficient).</blockquote>1up has some "off-screen" footage, by which they mean shitty shakecam. Thanks WUE.
