New Vegas 'Old World Blues' trailer is the weirdest Fallout vid yet

Just in case you were close to figuring out what the crap Fallout: New Vegas' Old World Blues DLC was all about, Bethesda has released a new trailer featuring whole new levels of weird, odd, and wtf. See now why this wasteland adventure may be the strangest yet.

Robo-scorpions, robo-dogs, robo-scientists, and homicidal housewives? Old World Blues always looked like it was drinking the crazy sauce, but this seems off-kilter even by Fallout standards (not that we're complaining).

From what we do know,  the DLC involves an abandoned science lab buried within Big Mountain, wherein players must find the secrets of their past, and a weapon that could save the future. Based on the trailer, all the pieces seem to fit the plot. We won't know how well they come together, however, until Old World Blues releases for download on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on July 19th.

    I kind of agree with what some people are saying regarding this being kind of a 'jump the shark' dlc. I was a fan of FO3, I still play both it and New Vegas regularly. I fucking love those games. However, they are definitely showing their age. Even in this (very recent) video, it's clear that the games are a good generation behind most newer titles. And yeah, again, this is coming from a HUGE fan of the games. I can tell that New Vegas is nearing the end of its commercial lifespan, and I'm a little disappointed at the lack of info regarding the possible Fallout IV. I assume it'll be built on Skyrim (like FO3 was on Oblivion), and that should be cool.

    Even weirder to me is the strange and mysterious experience of purchasing a brand new game on release day, taking it home to enjoy and NEVER TO THIS DAY being able to play it without REPEATED freezing. Random f r e e zi ng has a way of spoiling my en t hus ia s m for DLC.

    i bet that, with the Wild Wasteland trait, thats gonna be a laugh fest "do drugs, kill a bear"

    May seem a little off kilter in terms of the more recent fallouts, but in comparison to fallout 2's random references and assorted silliness (WHAT is your name?) this is actually kinda sane.
