    New Vegas All Roads Graphic Novel available digitally

    The Chris Avellone-written graphic novel that was included in the collector's edition of Fallout: New Vegas is now available digitally from Dark Horse Comics, through their website or iOS app for $2.99.
    All Roads introduces the world of New Vegas, a town of dreamers and desperadoes being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis, and tells an intriguing tale of loyalty and violence that leads right up to the beginning of the game. Written by Chris Avellone, the game’s senior designer, All Roads is tightly integrated into the story of New Vegas, even containing clues to in-game missions for the sharp-eyed reader. Artists Jean Diaz (Incorruptible) and Wellinton Alves (Shadowland: Blood on the Streets, Nova) and cover artist Geof Darrow (Hard Boiled, The Matrix Comics, The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot) stunningly interpret the world of New Vegas!
    Thanks GameBanshee.

    I got this with my collector's edition. It's a nice little backstory, but not very long.

    In the game you can walk the way the raiders took in the graphic novel. You see their map on the ground, you find the small tent village that got attacked by fiends, you find Chances grave, etc. Pretty cool.

    There is a character in All Roads named Chance that dies. You can find his grave in the game. The grave has some loot, including Chance's knife.

    And Chance's Knife is REALLY good, especially for the start of the game where it's easily obtainable, it still holds up later on even.

    It is a good little backstory, though it has some controversial, maybe canon-breaking parts.

    Still, it is a nice addition. I especially like the cover of the comic, where it is shown how they imagined Freeside to look like - very different than in-game.

    It definitely can't hurt to grab it. I remember it being a big deal getting the combat knife in I want to say FO1 or 2 and I killed a lot of rats with that thing. Man, I still miss the 2D iso, it's apples and oranges with the new stuff anymore.

    Though, the best Fallout related stuff we'll never get



    Now, imagine the same thing with Cain, Boyarsky and so on.
