Know Who Your Friends Are In Fallout: New Vegas

You can't expect to survive the harsh wastelands surrounding New Vegas without the help of a few friends. Check out the dogs, robots, humans, super mutants and ghouls that'll be helping you survive Fallout: New Vegas.

Not only do Fallout: New Vegas' companions keep you company, they deliver helpful perks to your character, just by staying by your side. Take Rex, or Cyber-Hound Mk III, LEO Support Model, Serial Number B955883. Whenever this four-legged companion trots alongside you, unequipped chems, firearms and ammunition will be highlighted for a short distance when you zoom the camera, no doubt because of his superior sense of smell.

Check out the PlayStation Blog Europe post by Bethesda senior community manager Matt Grandstaff, for detailed bios on each of your Fallout: New Vegas companions, but be warned, there are spoilers over there.

    I'm trying to know as little as possible so the whole game surprises me!
    I should stop looking at these damn posts!

    Pick Cass, be a massive alcoholic, bone a hot chick. Win.

    ♫ I'm blue, da ba de da ba di ♫

    I already miss butch :(

    Ummm... Dog with visible brain makes as much sense as warrior fantasy character showing flesh.
    Which is to say, not at all.

    Some pretty weak designed characters there, really.

      It's a cyborg dog dummy, it has a casing over the brain. There are several robots with brains showing.

        Oh, my bad! Sorry, I didn’t realise it was a cyborg, I thought those were ferns growing out of it, not metal!!
        Clearly, if I was designing some sort of robot dog killing machine, I would want to put all of its vunerable organs on the outside (obviously cased in some really expensive see through material that can’t be easily shot through).

        I take it all back, sorry for being such a dummy.

          *bleep bloop* Achieveable: Wambulance.

          Tis just a game :P

    Whadayamean the dog isn't called dogmeat!?!? It has to be called dogmeat! Also, why is the super mutant blue?

    (I'd chose the eye-bot)

      There'll probably be a dogmeat, just this one is a cybernetic dog. There were 2 cyber dogs in Fallout 2 and dogmeat was still in.

        Ok, double posted this to the wrong comment, double proof I am a dummy :)

    That's some awesome stuff! :D

    But... is that a female, blue super mutant?

    I like the fact I see an alpine landscape there in the 3rd to last pic. Seriously cannot wait for this game. The Mrs will be away on holiday during it's release week :>
