So I've been playing the DLC for Fallout: New Vegas and I think it does some really good things and some other really bad. For me Fallout is about crazy characters and exploring the world. Now inn this DLC it has fantastic characters. I wanted to get to know the story behind each one. A multiple personalty mutant, a slick talking ghoul, and a mute lady covered in scars. Nice creepy atmosphere and enemies you have to kill by destroying the body. That's the good, now for the bad.

This place is booby trapped to hell and back. Which would be fine if there wasn't also poisonous gas floating around and you have a bomb collar on your neck that blows up if you get to close to radios. Which leads to allot of trail and error deaths in a game with horrible load times. And a side effect of this is it made me not want to explore, killing half of what I find fund in. I know they're trying to make it harder but to me the way they did it was more annoying then enjoyable. Also the new weapons in the DLC were so-so to me and I didn't find anything that made me want to switch away from my current load out.

Still for there first DLC not a bad show compared to Operation Anchorage of Fallout 3 first DLC. Can't wait to see what they'll do next that's for sure.
