Fallout New Vegas - Prima Games Official Game Guide
OK, there's just too much information in this guide to give a full overview. Look at the book! It's MASSIVE. At 448 pages for just the regular edition (480 for the collector's ed) and OVER 500,000 WORDS between the covers it is a sure bet that this is the single most densely packed, complete strategy guide for a single game ever produced. That's more words than the first FOUR Harry Potter books combined. This guide has so much information about Fallout: New Vegas that it is going to be used by the publishers testing department as a reference manual. Seriously.
You want more specifics? OK, look at the poster map. It shows every exterior and underground location in the entire game. There are 20% more of them than there were in Fallout 3. Plus it marks all points of interest as well as giving visual representations of faction influence over all territories. There is no way to get the entire game world map all at once in-game! This poster is the only time you'll see the entire Mojave Wasteland laid out end to end.
What's that? The poster doesn't have interior maps? Or detailed views of important exterior locations? You're right, the poster doesn't show those things because they're all inside the book. The Tour section is where you'll find fantastically detailed maps of all interiors and exteriors of interest. And every one has rooms and item stashes labeled to guide you to the good stuff. Plus you get a threat level to know whether you can handle the location at your current level. PLUS each location has faction info and tells you if it is part of a Side or Main Quest.
And speaking of quests… Sure, you could figure out the Main Quests, where they are and how to do them. I suppose. But can you tell what the different faction alliances will get you? How being friends with the Legion and enemies of Mr. House will affect the outcome of your game? Can you figure out, on your first playthrough, how aligning with the NCR will change the way the Powder Gangers look at you? No you can't! Not unless you spend hundreds of hours playing through every possible combination of skill checks and faction alliances. Luckily, Prima has done just that and every Main Quest walkthrough shows the multitude of choices the player can make as well as how those will change the playthrough. You can pick out just who you want to tick off and who you want to adore you. Plus we give full information on what each reward is for all quests, Main and Side.
Oh right, Side Quests. We nearly forgot about the dozens and dozens and DOZENS of Side Quests. Oh wait, no we didn't! Every single Side Quest is covered in the Prima Fallout: New Vegas guide. How to start them, where to go and what to do to complete them, as well as the consequences (if any) to the factions you're courting or battling.
It's exhausting just talking about how exhaustive the information is in Prima's Fallout: New Vegas guide. If you don't believe me just pick up a copy and hold it. I will bet you that you cannot hold it straight out at arm's length for more than five minutes. Heck, I'll be surprised if you can do it for three minutes.
