Mr. New Vegas
The women of New Vegas ask me a lot if there's a Mrs. New Vegas; well, of course there is. You're her. And you're still as perfect as the day we met.”— Mr. New Vegas
Mr. New Vegas is an AI, programmed by Mr. House before the Great War, to be the DJ of Radio New Vegas, a job he still performs over two hundred years later in 2281. He is heard in the game only as a disembodied voice on the radio.
Interactions with the player character
Mr. New Vegas plays music and reads news, most commonly detailing the Courier's deeds in the Mojave wasteland.
He makes comments and gives advice on the Courier's active quests, such as revealing what the Courier must do or is going to do. Much like Fallout 3's Three Dog, Mr. New Vegas also reveals some future details of the ending of Fallout: New Vegas, including the possible takeover of the NCR, Caesar's Legion and Mr. House.
- Mr. New Vegas rarely mentions the Courier specifically, possibly because of lack of information (except when the Courier leaves Doc Mitchell's house). This is in contrast to Three Dog who knows the Lone Wanderer, describing him/her as "the kid from Vault 101".
- Some of his news will be based on the player's Reputation or Karma.
Mr. New Vegas is only heard in Fallout: New Vegas
Behind the scenes
- Mr. New Vegas is voiced by real-life Vegas-based star Wayne Newton, also known as "Mr. Las Vegas".
- Mr. New Vegas' line, "Mojave, mo' problems. Am I right folks?" is a reference to the rapper Notorious B.I.G.'s song "Mo Money, Mo problems." This line is only heard if the player takes the Wild Wasteland trait.
- Mr. New Vegas will also occasionally say "Stay classy, New Vegas" if you have Wild Wasteland. This is a reference to the film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
- Occasionally, Mr. New Vegas may say, "You're nobody 'til somebody loves you, and that somebody is me. I love you." This is a reference to "You're nobody 'til somebody loves you" by Dean Martin.
