Fallout: New Vegas?

I'll admit, I haven't been following this like I should have been, so now I'm wondering a few things.

Just how expansiony is it? New-game worth of stuff, or is it like Dragon Age Origins: Awakening, which not really enough new content to justify the expense? Do you use a previous save, or a whole new character? I'm torn on whether I want to go get this Now and Today, or wait for it to go down in price, or what. (It also doesn't help that it's been ages since I've played Fallout 3, and would have to remember what the hell my character was like and how to play...)

Anyone have any input for me?

Oof. On the one hand I really enjoyed Fallout 3 and would be generally okay with a Take Two, New Quests version, but... the bugginess sounds like a real turn-off.

*ponder ponder*

I'd wait for a patch. Both PC and 360 versions in every review I read crashed, froze, and just generally wigged out regularly.

And frankly as I posted myself, it looks like more of the same to me. I played 90 hours of Fallout 3, so more of that isn't too compelling.

This is completely good and intelligent advice. And it's a pity I'm weak and have the willpower of a gnat, and went ahead and ordered the damn thing. XD

Oh well :)

Patch will probably be soon given all the bad press about bugs.

Since my husband is firing it up just now in the other room, I'll stop by again later and offer a first hand bug-count.

Sheesh, I haven't even finished Fallout 3 yet. Let me know how New Vegas turns out - I'm curious if there's any other colors besides brown and gray...you'd figure those would be hard to do in neon... :)

For what it's worth, I played for 4 hours today without any glitches or crashes. But no one ever listens to me anyway.

That's not much time to get very far, I had to leave for class, but yeah, I think so.
