    Just as the vanilla release itself and all of the downloadable content (minus the item packs), the Ultimate Edition of Fallout: New Vegas has gotten a trailer, available on Youtube as always:

    In case you are asking yourself what the soundtrack to the trailer is, that's "Home on the Wastes", sang by lead designer J.E. Sawyer (and in-game by the Lonesome Drifter).

    Pretty cool. Like those gameplay moments. Certainly a good roundup for any official releases for the game.

    Pretty disappointing trailer as it's just made up of footage of all the other trailers. Ah well, at least now Josh's singing career can take off for realz!

    I am really excited about this release. I've been waiting for it since the day New Vegas came out. Even before that actually...
    I was thinking about waiting for the price to drop, but I doubt I'll be able to wait that long, and I'll probably end up pre-ordering.

    On a different note, I have a question that has some relation to the UE.
    You might wonder why I haven't got the game yet - to cut the story short, I could get the boxed vanilla copy, but I wasn't able to get the DLCs from Steam.
    Anyway, I am not an avid Steam user, and I have no games on my profile aside from some free Valve games, and therefore cannot use Steam fully (adding friends etc.).
    What interests me is this - since this game is Steam supported, will I be able to use all Steam's options after adding it to my profile? I will be getting the physical copy of the game, of course.
    I'm pretty sure there's some FAQ out there, but this has hit me just now, and to be honest, I'm a bit lazy, so I would appreciate any answer.
    Thanks in advance, and pardon my ignorance.

    Planning to pick that up the moment it comes out, adding even more to my Fallout New Vegas collection.
    I should have gone on that offer when my friend David offered me a free t-shirt with the NCR flag.

    @AtomKilla That would be a yes. Rather than just being steam supported it actually needs it running for you to play it.

    I was going to get this for the DLCs, but then Steam had a 75% off sale back on Thanksgiving day. It's still a good deal, but the price will probably go down more if you wait a while. The trailer was OK. As already stated, it reuses old trailer footage. The song was the best part.

    Right. If you start the game, it automatically starts Steam first. That makes it impossible to play the game without Steam running in the background. You'll have to set up a full Steam account Atomkilla. It doesn't cost anything.

    Great. I have a Steam acc, am joined in NMA group and all, it's just that all I have are free games, and that limits me from using it properly. This is a double-win.

    Thanks dustin542 and Richwizard.

    maybe it's a matter of nostalgia but i just now realised how ugly looks this game which i would never say about FO2 from 1998...

    It's not nostalgia. It's simply the visual style- some games get old fast, other don't. FNV has some nice and atmospheric vistas, but in the same time there are really ugly places too.

    The graphics in the old Fallout games was a more artistic accomplishment. People's imaginations are still drawn in by the suggestion of what's represented. Newer games are more like in your face video. New Vegas was visually better to me than most games, but then I love a good western.

    It's similar to how the graphics is Super Mario World on the SNES still look great today but that can't really be said for both of the News Super Mario Bros games....

    This is because one uses 2d sprites and the others use 3d models......

    Ughgughhughh... I hate country music so much. This trailer is 300% better with Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly with me".

    The "F3 engine" was mediocre in 2008 and it was beyond crappy when FNV was released. Not a developer in the world can make anything look even look remotely good (or even close to modern standards) with that god-awful engine.

    Ughgughhughh... I hate Frank Sinatra music so much. I remove him from the playlists in Radio mods I install.

    Seriously korindabar, the whole game is built around western themes and most quests have country music titles. "Home on the Wastes" fits the game as much as "Blue Moon", which is a Sinatra song I like by the way.

    This is pretty bullshit, except if you think Crysis graphic == the only true good graphic. The game *has* nice looking parts, regardless of if the engine is shit or not. Even the dialogue-stuff can look good, if you don't use the ugly character models, but something custom:

    I never mentioned Crysis or any other "standard", there is simply so much below average with every game made with that engine that you can't objectively call it "modern" or good or even adequate. The animations, lightning, texture quality, path finding, user interface,... are all well below average. Perhaps mods improve certain aspects of the game but no one should have to rely on mods to bring current games slightly closer to modern standards.

    Catherine uses Gamebryo, and is one of the most stylish games from 2011 IMO.

    El Shaddai uses Gamebryo and it's probably the most stunning game I've seen in a long time. It's also got a really fluctuating framerate, tho'. Whether that's due to inherent flaws in Gamebryo the devs didn't manage to fix or poor implementation/optimization of the assets/camera, I don't know.

    Cool, but I never called it modern or good or even adequate. I just said that it has good looking places, which you ultimately negated. I don't think a game needs to have one of the three named attributes to be able to produce good looking stuff here and there.
