I'm more interested in the game thus skipping this CE bullshit.
It's collecting dust while you play the game and that, to me, is what it's all about, the game.

I'm a sucker for stuff like that. Just like I was for the lunchbox and bobblehead with Fallout 3. I'll be getting the CE.

Fallout New Vegas will use Valve's Steamworks DRM, meaning that players will only be able to access the game through Steam.

I'd rather it be Steam than GFWL. I couldn't get that crap working for Fallout 3. (As far as achievements go)

wut....

GFWL works flawless for me

Only downside is that if you wan't mods along with DLC, GFWL will be disabled...

Not necessarily, Resident Evil 5 used steam but had GFWL

Not if they use steam DLC and Achievements...

Though mods and steam could give some trouble

Plenty of games on Steam are mod friendly, it shouldn't be a problem.

Yeah this is a good thing. It means that you'll be able to be on Steam in game and more importantly that it won't be using the shitty Windows Live bullshit.

Mods are quite abit different from other games on fallout3

Fallout3 has a sort of "package" type of mods, you add those you want and you can add several at one time...
And in the case of FO3, you had to move your DLC to make it work with mods...

What's the caravan pack?

Full details on which pre-order packs are available from which retailers follow below.

    The Classic Pack, available when you pre-order through GameStop, contains:

        * Armored Vault 13 Suit - Extensively patched up and dotted with piecemeal armor, this outfit is an homage to the classic ending of the original Fallout.
        * Vault 13 Canteen - This handy device is useful for staving off dehydration and providing a small amount of healing in the Mojave Wasteland.
        * Weathered 10mm Pistol - A well-worn 10mm pistol that packs an extra punch despite its modest size.
        * 5 Stimpaks - Food and water are good for long-term healing, but when the fighting is fierce, Stimpaks help keep Wastelanders upright.

    The Tribal Pack, available when you pre-order through Amazon, contains:

        * Tribal Raiding Armor - Pieced together from scraps of armor, this outfit provides protection without impacting mobility.
        * Broad Machete - This heavy-bladed melee weapon does high damage against limbs and can quickly deal out a flurry of attacks.
        * 5 Bleak Venom doses - Useful on any Melee Weapon, Bleak Venom makes short of work of most living targets.
        * 10 Throwing Spears - If you would like to silently pin an enemy's head to a wall, Throwing Spears are the way to do it.

    The Caravan Pack, available when you pre-order through Steam and Walmart, contains:

        * Lightweight Leather Armor - This hand-modified suit of leather armor reduces its overall weight without impacting its ability to protect.
        * Sturdy Caravan Shotgun - Despite its rough appearance, this Caravan Shotgun will reliably fire 20 gauge shells until the Brahmin come home.
        * 4 Repair Kits - Useful for repairing any outfit or weapon, Repair Kits are a valuable tool for any caravaner.
        * Binoculars – The Mojave Wasteland is a dangerous place, but with these trusty Binoculars you’ll be able to spot trouble coming.

    The Mercenary Pack, available when you pre-order through Best Buy, contains:

        * Lightweight Metal Armor - Modified for long-range travel, this Metal Armor sacrifices some protection for mobility and overall weight.
        * Mercenary’s Grenade Rifle - Though similar to other 40mm Grenade Rifles in the Mojave Wasteland, this model has a faster reload cycle.
        * 3 Super Stimpaks - When you absolutely, positively, need to keep your blood inside your body, Super Stimpaks fix you up in no time.
        * 3 Doctors Bags - Mercenaries and broken limbs go together like Iguana-on-a-Stick and Nuka Cola. Thankfully, these Doctors Bags take a bit of sting out of the inevitable crushed skull.
Good thing the most interesting package is the Caravan one Sturdy shotgun looks kewl...

Caravan is New Vegas, Fallout 3, Oblivion, and Morrowind. It's not any cheaper to buy them as a package than it is individually.
No it isnt...

The caravan pack is one of four DLC's provided with a pre-order

Thats why I deleted that post immediately after I hit submit.

They have a "Buy all 4 games" button directly next to the message that says Caravan Pack with no explanation of what Caravan Pack is.

you of course would know so much about how unique fallout 3 is considering you've never played anything else on its engine which of course works the same way.

I just don't give a rats arse about medieval games, now get over it! I just said FO3 does mods different from regular steam games like Source, which has mods as either a seperate game or serverside...

This is blissfully factually inaccurate. Your ignorance and stupidity never cease to amaze me.

Mods tend to be handled differently on many engines, but Gamebryo is nothing new to steam and has no problems with it.
