Fear and Loathing in New Vegas

A savage journey to the heart of a half-finished sequel.

Simply brilliant.
Half way through the second panel, I just realized that you guys were going to make it into a joke about the bugginess of the game.
It was rather well thought out.

Keep it up :D

Nice idea, but all the comic does is take references from Fear and Loathing without adding too much. I don't know, the comic has all the ingredients to be a hit, but it strangely left me cold. Maybe it's just because the Layton/Ace one was so good last time (this webcomic is really picking up). Drawings were awesome though, could have been a little more crazy for added effect (the colouring is way better than your usual stuff, nice work).

Yeah, what's the deal with eggtimers? I actually have seen scorpions do handstands...and fly 50 meters through the sky...I do enjoy the odd bit of Psycho and Hydra myself.

Seriously, that was damn funny. I <3 this webcomic.

I see radscorpions doing that weird handstand all the time. It seems to happen to a lot of enemies when you view them from far away. No idea why it happens, since I don't remember Fallout 3 having this problem.

Oh my god! I have a stomach ache because of this comic, it's wonderful.

Also, I hate those crashes to desktop, goddammit!

Why can't all game bugs be this amusing?

That is the cutest Picture i have seen ever =3

And good job with this comic, really amusing :)

As your attorney, I advise you to keep making comics this funny. It'd be a goddam miracle if Obsidian patch this before you get at least three more comics out of this.

That's all it needs to do. It's done perfectly.

Is that a ghoul or some dude in a gimp mask?

Another good one... though I miss Stout and the gang.

fantastic references gg escapist!

Brilliant use of a classic scene to highlight this Buggy Obsidian game. Cool comic :)

lol :D freakin egg timers...

So Depp with breats is still Depp?

Funny as hell.
Game works like a charm for me, haven't come across bugs or crashes.
Though it's kinda of a shame that I didn't get Doc Mitchell's Exorcist head or any moonwalking dogs. :(
(judging from other people's experiences, I must be one lucky motherfucker)

Definitely, they should keep spoofing New Vegas/Fear & Loathing. There weren't nearly as many references as I thought there would be in the game.

The drug satchel joke I've heard before: in fact, I think I posted it here when FNV was announced but they should keep jabbing at those things like the egg timers, handstands, and crashes. How about the fact that speech is used a lot more.

This thread made my morning.

Awesome, truely awesome and inspired. I usually don't comment on this feature but I REALLY liked this one. :)

I suppose I should mention that Hunter Thompson is a personal hero to help give context:

That might be the best thing I've seen all week.

I have the awkward feeling that there is another movie reference in that, which I fail to grasp. The last two panels seem to hold it.

Even after a post apocalyptic launch, Vegas is where the American Dream dies.

Also, the ghouls are truly God's prototype. Too weird to live, too rare to die. Only difference is that they were mass produced.

SO

MUCH

CUTE ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

*loveheartsplosion*

Good comic. I like it. Glad I haven't had any glitches yet. Well, except for floating rocks... hm...

This was an uncommonly funny and clever issue; welldone!

I couldent ask for a better comic to read at 11 in the morning.

Yup, pretty much sums up my experience in New Vegas, apart from the fact that I don't have that many egg timers flyin' 'round, but rather a billion "units" of lead! What, a pile of junk weighs a ton, but when you melt it down, it's gravity-defying? xD

Still, I'm having loads of fun with this game, and with the current state of things, it can only get better, right? ... right?!?

Also, +1 on kitty adoration.

I have crashed twice in 40+ hours of gameplay... framerate sucks in areas.

But I love this game and I too wonder where all the egg timers have come from.

I have set up my room as an arsenal that the Nazi's would wish was theirs.

I didn't get it. Maybe it's referencing a movie i haven't heard of or seen.

Incidentally, my game doesn't freeze very often (twice in twenty hours) and have had very little few glitches. The glitches i have come across were one or two pathfinding issues when something got stuck in the geometry, such as in a wooden pallet or a rock. I'm playing on the xbox 360 version, on the xbox slim. I've heard people claim the problems are nowhere near as pronounced on the slim as compared to those who play it on the original xbox (can't say for PC and PS3), but who knows.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. A Hunter Thompson masterpiece that was put into film staring Depp. It is about Hunter and his friend trying to find the American Dream in Vegas which they both believed no longer exists. They actually made a similar journey and taped it asking people where they could find "the American Dream" and some people actually thought they were looking for this new casino that they hadn't heard of.

Although that synopsis sounds confusing, at least the comic makes a lot more sense now, thank you.

If it's really trippy, i'll definitely have to pick it up and watch it. One of my favourite movies is A Scanner Darkly, and that film had me tripping balls.

It is a good pick and very trippy.

Well that was trippy. I didn't get all the references in it but it was still pretty funny. Thankfully the worst bugs I've gotten are the ones where things start fazing through surfaces. Even other surfaces fazing through surfaces. Its weird but not a huge problem.

Although there do seem to be more bugs in New Vegas than 3. Mantises, those weird flying moth things, alongside the radscorpions, ants, and roaches.
