Reviews have slowed down as the review copy folks are done with their rushed reviews and others are taking a more considered time period for review, so let's sidestep a moment towards mods. The Nexus modding community is doing its regularly awesome job. I'm playing unmodded (never mod or tweak for a review!), but catching my eye is the porting of FOOK to New Vegas. Ripten offers a top 5 of existing mods. It's mostly GUI and graphics tweaks now, obviously. Feel free to recommend mods in the comment thread. On the fixing topic, we got a link to a potential fix for the NPC slowdown issue (Nexus link), also mentioned in the Ripten piece above. Looks like it's worth an install.
