In the sixth episode of the show, we found out about Shady Sands’ fall in 2277. Four years before New Vegas starts. This retcons New Vegas. No one in the NCR talks about how their capital got nuked in NV. In the quest You’ll Know It When It Happens, the president of the New California Republic visits the Hoover Dam. Why would the president visit the dam after the capital got attacked? Hell, why is the NCR still in the Mojave Wasteland? It doesn’t make sense. So yes the show does retcons New Vegas.

    so that pretty much answers the question, doesn’t it?

    No. The only date we have is 2277. So based on the info we have right now. Shady Sands got nuked in 2277.

      Is that because you don’t accept what Todd Howard and Christopher Nolan said about the timeline?

        Lol probably. Classic “It’s not MY ideal canon, therefore, regardless of official confirmation, I refuse to believe anything else!” fanboy syndrom. I.e. the worst kind of fanboy.

        Why not just say it in the show. It will make things so clearer. But no they can’t do that. Also in the IGN article, he gives no date. So the only date we do have at this time is 2277.

          ok but nobody said in the show that it was nuked in 2277, either. ya’ll are upset by your interpretation of a number written on a blackboard by an unknown character.

          Okay, fair enough. I do agree it’s ambiguous, but I don’t draw the same conclusion.

          A lot of things in the show are ambiguous and only very clear to people who played the games. Please stop with this fake outrage culture.
