Fallout: New Vegas is the latest installment in the post apocalyptic role playing game franchise, and has just been launched by Obsidian, its developer, and Bethesda, its publisher.
While for many the post apocalyptic scenario might seem extremely dull or sad, for the Fallout franchise it still offers plenty of opportunities to put a smile on the face of players
that are adventuring through the Wasteland.
Obsidian already has a bit of a reputation for injecting quite a lot of funny things into their games, so Fallout: New Vegas was extremely suited to the development studio.
Throughout your adventures in the Mojave Wasteland and on the New Vegas strip, you'll definitely encounter quite a lot of strange things, especially if you chose the Wild Wasteland trait at the beginning on the game.
Two hilarious things really stood out for me during my current playthrough, but if you don't want to have anything spoiled, stop reading.
I won't reveal anything crucial to the main plot, though, so don't be afraid to keep on reading.
The first is when you reach the Repconn headquarters near the New Vegas strip.
While that may not sound like anything interesting, I urge you to take the time and go on the "factory tour", by reading about all of the exhibits on the building's ground floor.
Here you will find some of the most hilarious explanations given by a non existent rocket company about its prototypes, the scandals it was involved in and the radioactive waste it chose to deposit in big piles, "for the sake of the community."
The second encounter might happen a bit sooner, but it is also related to the Repconn company.
Near the town of Novac, the Repconn Test Site is located, and, after a few brief encounters with some enemies, you will find out that a special Ghoul faction, the Bright Brotherhood, wants to use the rockets that are inside to reach a "sacred place."
While the whole idea of Ghouls in space is hilarious, the Brotherhood takes things extremely serious, and you even start rooting for them while helping them in their quest.
These are just a few of the more hilarious moments in Fallout: New Vegas, and seeing as how I've spent a bit over 20 hours, I'm pretty sure there are still lots of things to come.
