Obsidian Entertainment presents new features and improvements in Fallout: New Vegas that are implemented upon the foundation of Fallout 3. For example, the original Fallout 3 version of the Gamebryo engine was reworked to accommodate the extra lights and effects of the Las Vegas Strip.
The game's combat is centered around the "Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System" feature, or "V.A.T.S.", which is from Fallout 3 with the addition of several new V.A.T.S.-specific attacks. Use of certain melee weapons trigger unique animations. Additions are new weapons, a weapon modification system, a better over-the-shoulder view for third-person combat and the ability to use the iron sights on almost all guns except several larger weapons that are shot from the hip.

Other weird sounds such as people talking out of nowhere from random explosions are heard at the Cemetery. Some other strange things include whispering being heard in the grave that the Courier was planned to be buried in.

I am all alone, Let it all end", and there is a bloodstain, which means rumor's of the Lone Wolf's suicide are common.
