'Fallout: New Vegas' Achievements Encourage Gambling, Survival

Fallout: New Vegas Achievements

Playing the slots and generally bad public behavior will get you a lot of points in "Fallout: New Vegas." The post apocalyptic vision of Sin City now has a complete list of Achievements available, and they reveal the presence of a lot of familiar elements, as well as a few ambiguously identified surprises and loads of opportunities to up your Gamescore. If you don't mind potential spoilers, feel free to peruse them after the jump.

The game will host 50 individual Achievements with 1000 potential points available, according to Xbox360Achievements.org. Modding, hacking and general technical ingenuity will be worth many of those points, but getting banned from a casino, gambling and something called a "Ring-A-Ding-Ding" will be necessary to max out your Gamescore.

A few of those numbers may appear daunting, but if "New Vegas" plays anywhere near as well as "Fallout 3" did, the time will breeze by. Nothing truly outrageous is catching my eye on here, though figuring out how to aggravate all of the casino owners should prove fun. As for the games therein, novice betters shouldn't be scared, since just showing up to play will get you almost as many points as winning.
