I love Fallout 3, must be one of my favorite games after GTA of course.

I love how realistic it is, in terms of the wasteland.

i wonder how many pages this topic will reach... the last one got up to 30+ pages biggrin.gif...

still no word from bethesda or playstation concerning broken steel for tomorrow... i guess another week in september will pass without the add-on... meh, my anticipation is slowly wearing off... it's slowly getting to the point of me not caring when the hell they release it anymore...

I heard that there is a version of this game coming out soon that has all the DLC included in the box (Game of the Year edition or something?) does anyone know if this is coming out for the ps3?

That was a great thread, I will tell my kids about it.
bOnEs
synch needs to edit his first post to re-direct it to the old thread for the newbies... good conversations and loaded with tons of hints and suggestions for fallout 3... that topic was a gold mine...
TheAnalogKid2112
Yeah, the last topic reached over 5,400 posts if I recall. I'm just gonna continue as if it's the old topic.


So I finished my evil file. Only one trophy to go for platinum. I still can't believe I screwed up that karma shit by killing all the free karma people. Gonna have to do a boring neutral file..
bOnEs
it doesn't have to be a boring neutral file... you can play it however you want, just make sure you keep those beggars alive for when you reach level 20 laugh.gif... i can't wait to reach 30 and get those trophies...

I haven't played for quite a while. When uni work subsides a bit I'll do Mothership Zeta, finish off the loose ends from Point Lookout, and then I think I'm pretty much done.

Know what you mean.

I'm in the middle of Zeta now. It's cool and all, but like a novelty.
Surrounded by all the alien tech, when in a crunch I still use my earth weapons.
Maybe because I know them better and while nearly weightless, the alien
weapons aren't testing out that successful against the aliens. So, flamer.

Not the same impact as Point Lookout had.
But - I had found and done everything else in the game, some two
and three times over, so downloaded it. Will probably finish it this week.

I'll tell you the same thing someone told me when I was considering it: Get it.

There's no explanation needed, no questions that need to be answered before you decide. Everyone needs to play this. Everyone has to experience Fallout 3.

Now I just have to wait for the mod that lets me marry Fallout 3, rather than marry in Fallout 3.

Did anyone ever try that foliage mod?

It makes the capitol wasteland totally green with plants and stuff that grows.

They should replace all the smokes in the game with joints, and all the cartons of cigarettes with bags.

The first is just a wasteland rest stop, with new guns (new names not actual new gun gun) the second has a story that is connected to the first one if you gut the Bed and Breakfast to find clues.

The first does actually include new drugs but their effect is interesting. The second has a sad story.

I haven't played since broken steel corrupted my game so yeah, tell me how you like it if you like it biggrin.gif


((Also the gun in the second has an interesting effect when shot. Nothing heinous, just try it))

i wish... but, they're actually working on a fallout MMO, believe it or not... i think it's currently labeled as project V13...

i've wanted to get this game for the PC so i could mod it... but, i need to upgrade my PC first and, that's gonna cost me too much damn money to do... one of these days...

My thoughts exactly, bOnEs. Only PC game I have is GTA:SA and it lags when shit gets too crazy. Now that's a 5-year-old game. I can't imagine how bad a game like Fallout 3 would run. Yuck.

My PC (which, in my defense, I did not buy just for Fallout), cost me about a grand with monitor and some other shit. I skipped out on the insurance, I can fix my own shit.

I built a decent pc for $650. That's without monitor etc. And you can't edit videos, while running Crysis, while playing HD porn at the same time, but most people can live without that.

Just finished Mothership Zeta.

Got the extra 4th achievement for collecting all the captive recordings,
the extra perk from the shooting gallery, and most everything else.
There is well hidden over 300 rounds of the regular alien ammo, as
well as like 10,000 rounds of the new, called alien power modules.
I think the only item I did not collect was that dude's coat, in the
waste area with the one captive recording used for the trailer.
It's the longest recording, one of the best in my opinion, and I guess
in that area he has some sort of trench coat. Got everything else though.
Lost 3/4 followers; Paulsen in the hangar battle, Somah in the final battle,
and killed Toshiro for his clothes (already had found his sword) because
he doesn't do jack shit for you in the game. No karma loss for the kill.
I left the BoS medic alive because he turns the alien biogel into adapted
biogel and then each single does acts almost better than stimpacks to
restore health almost 100%. A few rare times it took 2 of the adapted.

I rate this DLC as a novelty, and it was interesting, but far from the best DLC.
You'll walk away with tons of new weapons, and I recommend getting that
shooting gallery perk because they are not all that when used normally.


I took this shot because the abomination died pointing, and on his knees:


If you listen to the 3 recordings in the bioresearch lab, you'll find out that
the abominations were human crossed with alien DNA, quite weird.
bOnEs
lol @ that photo laugh.gif...

yea, on my journey "post-all DLC" i'm just gonna try to stumble upon the crash site by just exploring... or by heading to the republic of dave for a certain quest... however it happens, happens... either way, it's kind of gonna play out as a "one-in-a-million" quest...

i'll pry start working SE of vault 101 after spending some time in megaton, which sends me to operation anchorage and any quests i find that way... this is probably the first direction i head but, i might choose the next direction first too... not "too" much action this way and it will stray me away from the main quest...

N-NW of arafu after i take that quest... and i imagine i'll run into plenty of quests that way... might not actually get out that way until "shoot 'em in the head" quest takes me out that way for the prize... but, that will bring me into sniper distance of the pitt...

point lookout probably won't get my attention until i start helping out the scientists and my dad... when i start working that area over i'll probably look into it but, i know there's plenty in store there for later, maybe post-enclave arrival...

mothership zeta is just gonna be a random occurrence on that play-through though... i'll ignore the distress signal and stumble upon it while exploring the wastes for whatever i might find... and broken steel will finish how ever the main quest plays out... but, i am gonna make a complete effort to deliberately stray away from the main quest to complete the very next quest i am given... except for the wasteland survival guide of course laugh.gif... that takes ages to complete...

seriously, this DLC stuff has gotten me back into playing this game and, looking forward to having them all to explore from the beginning of a new file biggrin.gif... i want to create the ultimate fallout story... and all of this will give me something to play in the winter because, i am sure i'll be passing on most of the games released this holiday season... you only got soo much money and 5 games for $50, plus another 150+ hour file = $150+ worth of games...

I don't know much about the PS3 releases but I love the way they did it for XB and PC.
The Operation: Anchorage is a MUST for many of us to do first, not only because it was
the first DLC but because of the Chinese Stealth Armor. That shit is the shit.

I used it in all the other DLC's, and the regular game as well. It is awesome.
You will also find all those Stealth Boys collecting dust in the fridge, I've about 100 now L0L.

Of course the order in which they were released is not the same for PS3 but I really
liked doing the Pitt after OA. Of course the ultimate for game continuation is Broken Steel. third.

After doing Broken Steel, it really opens up the wasteland for free-roam forever like
all the GTA games are after completion.

Then as soon as possible take that Chinese Stealth Armor to Point Lookout.
I think it may be a favorite of mine and my friends. So much to do away from
the linear storyline. Lots of exploration, and an achievement for finding all the locations.

Yeah there bOnEs, stumble on to Mothership Zeta whenever, but I thought one thing
was cooler than other DLC's which you will appreciate. As you progress in Zeta after
finding the Engineering Core, it is more than obvious they want you to use the area
as a base of operations. Each time you progress, the Engineering area changes, and
provides you eventually with a real bed, not just a make shift bedding. However, they
want you to see the area where the make shift bedding and Toshiro are, because
that is where the Giddyup Buttercup toy will spawn, and later, the full size Buttercup.
There is research areas loaded with a Buttercup assembly line, as well as a creepy
test area with one Buttercup in a lab surrounded by dead wastelanders....interesting.







Basically in the end, you have another safe house to call your own, in Engineering.

You can use the homing beacon on Earth to go up and crash anytime you want.
Fully loaded with bed, stash compartments, Wasteland Honey Magazines, and tissues.

L0L - Not the last part, couldn't resist.

Here is another mod idea like my 420 Wasteland Mod idea that analog liked:

Replace small destroyed books with Wastelander Honey Magazine drool.gif

Replace small scorched books with Raider Babes Weekly Magazine tongue.gif

Replace large destroyed books with Worthy Slaves in Bondage Magazine cool.gif

and finally, just for y'all who are evil.....

Replace large scorched books with Hot Slaver Bitches in Heat Magazine.
