Obsidian Entertainment's Fallout: New Vegas has received the preview treatment from yet another website, and this time it's a two-pager at Hooked Gamers:
Usually the hardest difficulty setting means that the player will replay the whole game again, just with fewer lives and perhaps facing tougher bosses. Fallout: New Vegas takes this one step further. The gaming difficulty will naturally be increased, but the player will also have to implement carefully thought-out and effective strategies, careful resource management, combat tactics, and pay constant attention to the environment.
Instead of instant healing, the healing will be deliberately delayed. If the player gets severely injured, the character will needs lots of skill with medicine and a med pack in order to recover. Also, the player will need a supply of water, food, and to take care that the characters get enough sleep.
