Buy it as soon as it goes on sale, Then install NMC's Texture Pack, Nevada Skies, Fallout Character Overhaul and Freeside Open and the rest of the uncut mods to reinstate the stuff that was cut because of lolconsoles.


I would recommend Fallout New Vegas Redesigned II over Fallout Character Overhaul. The latter looks a little too uncanny valleyish.

It depends on your PC.

I've played many of Bethesda's games on console and on PC and unless your PC is very weak I would always recommend the PC version.

Even with the official and fan patches New Vegas is still kind of buggy, but usually in ways that are easily fixed with a mob or a simple console command.

The PC version is still prone to crashes, the difference is that, for me at least, loading the game back up takes easily 1/8th the time it takes to reboot and relaunch the game on console.
From the time NV crashes to the time I am right back in the game world is easily under 30 seconds.

Also, even a modest PC built with gaming in mind will have load times a fraction of what they are on console.


If you get New Vegas on PC I highly recommend the New Vegas Bounties 1 and 2 mod.
It adds a ton of interesting bounties quests to the game with some pretty neat stories to them.

The only mod I needed to make a character I was happy with was Mikoto's Beauty mod, it unlocks the skin tone slider and adds 170 female hair styles and 130 for males. Most of them were anime style things that didn't really fit the post apocalypse theme but I found a few I liked. It also adds more noticeably different shades of blue for eyes than the default game has total colors which is saying something since for the default colors, at 1080p all settings maxed, zoomed all the way in on my character's face, I couldn't tell the colors apart at all.
