Field report 6:After investigating loud screaming coming from paradise falls,we discovered that they were in the middle of being attacked by cerverus and his army of feral ghouls,however before we could go further,a large bit of debris cut us off from the battle,so we had to improvise by climbing up the slave pens,after reaching the slave pens and finding a good position to clib,we were too late,all we found were corpses and some normal feral ghouls,as well as a "leader" ghoul screaming something,after sneaking up to the guard post,we killed the leader ghoul and most of the ferals,however two of them infected a corpse and suprisingly infecte dit and made it a feral ghoul,my squad quickly took them down,we also caught a glimpse of a wounded eulogy jones escaping during our takedown of the ferals. -protector shaun nickleson

And Moira stood, amazed, as the vault dweller whom was stationed before her, began to unfasten his jump suit. Slowly that zipper clicked as it made its way down over the curves of his abdomen, until it was revealed. That large, magnificent mass of flesh which set Moira's doe eyed gaze aglow. She clasped those calloused hands together in amazement as she let out a giggle of delight, before tentatively reaching forward to prod that standing, fleshy protrusion with single outstretched finger. It was only then when flesh met flesh that Moira knew, the radiological experiment was a superb success.

So Fallout 3 is out now. People have a lot of questions about it. In fact, people keep asking the same questions over and over again. I figure I might as well answer them here, and direct people to this post.

But this thread isn't just about Fallout 3, even though it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. We also cater to the retro crowd of Fallout and Fallout 2. I'll split this into two parts, then.

Fallout Classic!
Spoiler:

Fallout 3: The New Fallout. Same great Fallout taste, brand new formula!

So, wait, what is Fallout 3?
Okay, you've obviously been living under a rock for the past couple of years.

Fallout 3 is a post-apocalyptic hybrid of a turn-based RPG and an FPS. Your character grows up in one of the last unopened Vaults - which are basically big underground self-sustaining fallout shelters - living peacefully with your father. One day, he up and leaves the Vault (which is unheard-of, as nobody leaves the Vault, ever, period). Forced out by the maniacal Overseer, who is convinced that both you and your father want to destroy the Vault's stability, you get thrust into the harsh, unforgiving reality of the Capital Wasteland. This is basically the area in and around Washington, D.C. (which is not the same place as Washington state, the latter being on the west coast and the former being on the east coast, for you eurotrash out there reading this) and includes some real-life places such as Olney, Bethesda, Maryland, Fairfax, VA, Falls Church, etc, etc. Of course, the scale has been compressed and the landscape is unrecognizable, but it's still neat seeing all these places in-game that you can also see on a map.


Hacking!
When you enter the Hacking minigame, you'll get a screen filled with words and random characters. The goal is to guess the correct word, and it plays out like a game of Mastermind. Pick a word, and the system will tell you how many letters in that word are in the same place as the target word. For instance, if you pick "Meaning" and the word is "Fucking" (for example), you would get 3/7 correct for the "ing" part. There are hidden character sets, delinated by {} <> () on a single line in that order, but there may be characters in between them like {$#$#&%}. Click on one of these when the whole sequence is highlighted and you'll get more password guesses or a dud will be removed from the screen. If you get down to one attempt left and there are no hidden character sequences, and you're not sure you can guess correctly, just cancel out with B and try again. You get a fresh puzzle, but you also get all your guesses back.

Hey, where's the instruction book?
If you're borrowing the game or it's a rental, you might not have the manual for this game. Fear not, Steam will provide!
http://store.steampowered.com/manual/22300/

Holstering and the Pip-Boy Light!
To holster your weapon, hold down reload (X on 360, R on PC, [] on PS3). To turn on the light on your Pip-Boy 3000, hold down the Pip-Boy button (B on 360, Tab on PC, probably O on PS3).

Repairing Items
In order to repair an item and improve its CND, you need two things: a high enough repair skill to repair an item past its current CND, and another item to scavenge for parts. Say you have two 10mm pistols at 25%. Select one, hit Y (or Triangle for PS3, I guess. I don't know the PC button, it's probably in the manual). Then select the one you want to scavenge for parts, they'll get combined together and the CND will go up, more damage, etc.

Note that you don't need an exact item to use for parts. The unique versions of weapons can be upgraded with the regular version - the Lincoln's Repeater can be repaired with the Hunting Rifle, the A3-21 Plasma Rifle can be repaired with the regular plasma rifle, etc. If you have one of those special weapons, try repairing it and you might have the right piece to use for parts. There's always a cap to which you can repair something (determined by your repair skill), so if you have two 50% guns you might not be able to combine them together. The resulting CND would be higher than the CND you can repair to.

Hotkeys and You!
To set a hotkey for an item in your inventory, on PC press a number key and then click on the item. On console, hold down RB or R1 and hit a direction on your d-pad while the item is selected. Whoever told me you don't need to hold down RB, you're a dirty liar.

How do I get into Rivet City? There's no bridge!

Okay, this isn't so frequently asked and it's not a spoiler, but I had trouble with it the first time I went. Climb up that building with the stairs on it that appear to lead nowhere, and at the top (next to the poor guy who needs water) there's an intercom. Click it, and Harkness will send the bridge over for you.

Spoiler:
I'll update this with other questions I see getting asked a whole lot, at least the ones I know the answers to. ;)

Hey, my game ended too soon!
So Fallout's got some DLC coming down the line. I'll let Eurogamer articulate.

(source: http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=319322)
Eurogamer wrote:
Bethesda has whipped the wrappers off three chunky downloadable additions to Fallout 3.

First to arrive, in January 2009, will be Operation: Anchorage. It's a military simulation that takes players back to the historical battle of Anchorage, where Chinese invaders threatened the future of Alaska.

The Pitt follows in February, and adds an industrial raider town in the remains of Pittsburgh, where players will face tricky allegiance decisions. (Jen or Ange?)

Finally, Broken Steel arrives in March. Here, players will be recruited into the Brotherhood of Steel, and be swept up in the furious termination of all Enclave supporters in the Capital Wasteland. Broken Steel takes Fallout 3 past the conclusion of the main quest.

There's no word on exact pricing, although Pete Hines has once again stressed (this time to MTV Multiplayer) that the DLC will be similar in many ways to Oblivion's add-on quest, Knights of The Nine.

This, remember, was open to both new and existing saved games from the main map, and was usually prompted by a letter in the inventory or by an NPC in one of the towns.

Knights of the Nine lasted a good few hours, too, and was released for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360 (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60 / USD 10). PC owners eventually got the same standalone content for the same price.

Still, PC owners needn't necessarily fork out any extra money, as Bethesda is releasing the G.E.C.K (Garden of Eden Creation Kit) toolset for free in December.

This lets the curious tinker with any bits of data from Fallout 3; landscapes, towns, locations, nuclear rats, dialogue, weapons, armour, creatures and so on.

A more in-depth look at Operation: Anchorage, kindly provided by Kotaku.:
(source: http://kotaku.com/5107085/fallout-3-dlc-lets-take-a-good-look-at-it?skyline=true&s=i)
Kotaku wrote:
We knew its name, but little else. Well, today, Bethesda have finally provided details on Fallout 3's first piece of DLC. For those short on time, for $10 you'll get 4-5 hours worth of gameplay out of it.

For those not short on time, pull up a seat!

Operation Anchorage - the first of three planned DLC packs for the game - is set in the game's "distant past", with players able to access a dusty old military simulator that "teleports" you into a battle against the Chinese army, in the days before the a-bombs started falling.

Being a battle, the focus here is on combat, players tasked with fighting (or sneaking) their way past a ton of Chinese troops. As a bonus, many of the weapons and technologies players encounter in Operation Anchorage will then be made available in the main game.

A new perk - called "Covert Ops" - will also be added to the pack.

Also discussed, albeit briefly, were the game's second and third pieces of DLC. The second, called The Pitt, takes players to Pittsburgh, a city that while still in a state of disrepair, never took a bomb or three like DC did.

The third, "Broken Steel", is mentioned only briefly, and will bring increases to level caps, new bad guys and new perks.

    Moira's a stupid [warning, foul language ahead]
    Spoiler:

    Also, this game is one of the best games. It does feel like Oblivion, but I played the SHIT out of this game, unlike Oblivion. I kinda miss being a porn star, but whatever.

    Oh and apparently my friend played through his first run in this game entirely in third person. What the FUCK? I told him he was a dirty liar because that view is impossible to do anything in, and it looks terrible. But he swears it's better than I think.

    3rd person is much more enjoyable if you zoom in enough not see anything on your character below a little above the knees. Makes it a little more of an over the shoulder view. Still can't snipe from that view, and you'll miss shooting things like rad roaches at your feet becuase the bullet shoots left of the reticle within a few feet while in 3rd.

    And Moira rocks. She's like the main character's 'Q' from the James Bond movies. Cheery, easy to make go into some self righteous rant, all manner of goodies to buy and get fixed, and has a total disreguard for the character's safety and well being. It's awesome.

    My girlfriend and I both live and work in the D.C. area, where she has lived for over a decade. She saw me wandering the wastelands last night and recognized some key spots. I wasn't sure if the pace and content of the game would be up her alley, but I let her start a game for herself from scratch.

    She loved the introductory bits and became hooked once she realized she could be evil - she was pickpocketing and murdering left and right. Long story short, she started playing at 8PM, I went to sleep around 11PM and she didn't make it to bed until 3AM. She loved the writing, humor and open world aspects and was like a frickin' accountant managing her Pip-Boy.

    D:

    Background: When we first started dating, she saw my 360 and PSP and told me that "video games were for losers!" Over the past year, she's become addicted to Castle Crashers, Call of Duty 4, Puzzle Quest and Wipeouts Pure and Pulse. I'm happy that I can add Fallout 3 to the list! Mwuahahahaha. I guess Mass Effect or Oblivion should be next...

    Ask her if she likes mudkips.

    Also, the mods are pouring out like crazy... but I cant find any place that actually rates them based on how good they are. Nexus for example bans you if you rate anything but 10. (a tiny exageration.. but only very tiny)

    Not really an exaggeration at all. Its stupid, I can understand the idea behind the rule, but its implementation is bullshit. Have to rate everything 9 or 10 just to avoid hurting feelings negates the need for having a freaking rating system.

    I was under the impression that the rateing system they had was to rate it on how well it acomplished it's goals. AKA: The mod to make a bloat fly bright pink must be rated a 10 if it did indeed make bloat flys pink, and does not damage other aspects of the game in the process (breaks quests, make your character pink as well, etc).

    I hate Old Olney because of all the damn Deathclaws on my first playthrough - first time I encountered one was at the Deathclaw Sanctuary, just one outside and it too my forever to kill him. Pretty much had to stand on a rock he couldn't get me on and shoot him for half an hour (I was rather low level).

    Got to Old Olney and saw one prowling some blown up house and felt mighty please when I managed to take him down.

    Then I got deathraped by three more of the bastards that I didn't see.

    You lose INSANE levels of CND for every freaking shot, much more so with the sniper rifle than the shotgun, but the shotgun can easily lose 25% condition in a single fight against a few yao guai.

    It almost makes me want to download a weapons take no damage mod.

    that's it, I'm shutting this entire forum down, everyone thank buttcleft

    Seriously? I never had a problem maintaining my combat shotgun.

    Yeah, combat shotguns hold up decently, though not well. The sniper rifle, on the other hand, can kiss my dick.

    I wanted to love the sniper rifle, but it ended up sitting in my house instead. It always fell apart on me.

    I found giving it to Charon made him death-incarnate.

    My Charon died valiantly in the Deathclaw Sanctuary. We were owning them darn Deathclaws, and then BAM! Three of 'em come out of nowhere and rape his shit. He will be sorely missed.

    Okay, consensus on the Life Giver perk for an unarmed character? I'm thinking the deathclaw gauntlet is the weapon for me.

    Man, I haven't had a chance to play today because of stupid things like being an adult and having to do things around the house and town, but damned if I'm not thinking about it.

    Edit: And what's the best way to get Charon. I accepted the dude's offer for his contract if I did a certain something, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it.

    I put on a stealthboy and left a little surprise in her pocket. It seemed to work pretty well for me.

    Very nice. I happen to have a stealthboy. And a few...surprises. Thanks!

    Anyone ever have one of those "Oh my god." moments? Where you can only stare in disbelief and sadness at what you see?

    I had one moment after fixing a radio tower and listening to a man plead for someone with medicine to come help his family. His child was sick, they were out of stimpaks and growing desperate, they hid in a storm drain. There's no waypoint marker so I activally searched the area, whole time listening to this man plead, almost sounding like he was tearing up while talking.

    I found the storm drain and went in. At the end of a short tunnel there was a room to the right with light pouring out. I went in and found 2 skeletons lying beside the bed, holding each other, with a toy in one of their hands. I turned and entered the other room, where the HAM radio was still on. I turned it off, blinked, and walked back out. I couldn't think of anything but "They're gone. The mother fucking wastes..."

    It's a computer game, and for some reason that moment just resonated with me. Then to top it off, after walking in a straight line thinking about this moment, I see a wastelander being attacked by a giant radscorpion. I save the woman, then try to talk to her and she's all "Get out of my face, you jerk." After seeing such a sad moment, then getting this snide comment from this woman, I blew her up with a mine, shot her with the shotgun till I emptied 3 clips, then stole everything she had, even her butterknife.

    Thinking "The mother fucking wastes..."

    This depresses me. Like, really bad. And I haven't even "experienced" these things. What an amazing game.

    I feel a bit silly posting a build for my next guy, but I'd hate to find out later on that I made some bad decisions in making him:
    Spoiler:

    As for an Oh My God moment, I can only say I've had one and it's not quite as impressive as your find, considering pretty much all players have to pass by it: the Museum of Technology Vault tour. I felt so haunted stepping out of it, something about the narrator, the lights turning on for you as you crept along, just how sad and funny it all was, really got to me. You really pity whoever would be destined to end up in one of those vaults- and then you remember where your character came from...

    Intelligence isn't high enough. I would take down Cha to 4 and add two to Int. Every extra int point adds an extra skill point when you level up. Over the course of the game, a single extra point in int will give you 19 extra skill points. I don't think strength affects unarmed so you should probably train in a different stat. I recommend the strong back perk for carrying a lot of stuff.

    I would take out the last tag for something like lady killer etc.

    Cannibal is a surprisingly useless perk. Eating people never gave me much health. According to the wiki, they give 25 health and some radiation. I recommend getting the action boy perk. Unless you are doing a themed character, grim reaper's sprint is better than the ninja perk. The toughness is also a useful perk as you won't exactly be dodging a lot of bullets as an unarmed characters.

    When you do Moira's quest, I recommend doing all of the optional objectives and answering with the end or str option. If you do it this way, you get an extra 15 HP plus 6 DR. If your str or end isn't high enough, you can use enchanted equipment or drugs to get it high enough.

    Snide responses net you the 3% crit bonus. FYI.

    * Each corpse restores 25 health. Corpses tend to be radiated, like most food sources, however the gain of radiation is not indicated on the HUD.
    Someone can test it.
    I'd like to know why I can't eat supermutants.

    Meat is too fatty. I wouldn't recommend it.
