Fallout: New Vegas DLC Honest Hearts Trailer

It would seem Obsidian sees promise in Fallout: New Vegas. Over a week ago, the game developer announced three New Vegas add-on packs (Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, and Lonesome Road), but only today released the trailer for their first installment. Honest Hearts takes place in Utah's Zion National Park and finds our intrepid hero entangled in a war between tribes. The fate of the park is in your hands as you try and resolve the conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the enigmatic Burned Man.

The video seems interesting and the story seems up to snuff. My only issue with this add-on is that I feel New Vegas's time has come and gone. I played the game and enjoyed it for very nearly a month, but since then, I've played dozens of other games. I can hardly remember what decisions I've made, the alliances I've formed, or even my combat specialties. Releasing DLC for a game that was released almost seven months ago seems ludicrous, and this time difference is only compounded when taking into account the time spent fixing the bungled game.

Perhaps my gaming heart is a social butterfly of sorts, but I feel these add-ons come too late for me. If you feel up to dusting off your super sledge or refueling your flamer, by all means give the add-on packs a whirl. With the additions of new stories along with patched gameplay, Fallout: New Vegas may find its second wind yet.
