man oh man. fallout: new vegas is the shit. just like the last one, i am rocking this thing on ps3. now, in my day, we didn’t do this ‘strategy guide’ bullshit. ok? that is some freeze-dried bullshit right there. we just fought it out. sometimes we polled our friends. later, we had this little thing called ‘the internet’. maybe you have heard of it? we sure as hell didn’t have any of this ‘strategy guide’ nonsense. a lot of clerks push them on you, especially when you buy the game the first day it’s out. why would i pay upwards of $30 for something i can get for free on the webz? asshats.
anyway, captainadventure loves them. i was telling her how awesome fallout: new vegas was, and her first question was about this damn guide. guess what though? she bought the game, and the guide for fallout 3. she played maybe 5 hours, then gave up after fallout 3 revealed itself to be hot glitchy mess. what did that equal? a waste of money.
i find that this is another big trend in games. big game, strategy guide. maybe you put two and two together and got four, you clever wannabe mathematicians and realized the bigger the game, the bigger the guide.
i hear though that the strategy guide for fallout: new vegas is longer than war and peace.
ultimately my question is this: whatever happened to just playing the game?
