    See now there's like the ultra edition or something that has the whole game and all the DLC and it costs the same as the regular game. How is that fair?

    because the game is a year old?

    The problem with Fallout 3 is that when it comes to games like that, I'm such a packrat.

    I would only ever carry the hunting rifle. I never used the alien blaster, the rockets and definitely not the fat man, except when you first get it. Because I liked having the filing cabinet in my megaton house filled with a million bullets, every possible item I ever picked up. I spent hours arranging trophies of my playtime on the shelves in there, putting the unique items all over. I took the evil path with the lincoln quest just so I could have his hat and all the other museum trinkets inside my shack. I didn't craft nuka cola bombs so I could stack dozens of quantum bottles in the corner.

    Fallout 3 completely became this OCD nightmare for me. Where every unique item, every named gun and all the bullets and missiles and boxes of food in the whole fucking wasteland had to be stored, catalogued and filed away back at home base just so that I could save and turn off my PC.

    The whole repair system made this ten times worse, because seeing bars that said 91/100 is something I just can't handle. They never made it to full either. Ever. That killed it.

    The game was amazingly fun. As people have said, Broken Steel is practically required and certainly the best, Point Lookout and The Pitt are the others worth having. Anchorage and Zeta are bad and not worth it even for the items. My favourite was the Pitt, mainly because I consider Broken Steel to be - at this point - part of the main canon game it's so important.

    A friend of mine decided to cure his Fallout 3 addiction by 'loaning' me his copy on 360 along with his expansion pack disc. So I have an essentially time unlimited free version of this.


    I'm just not sure I care enough to play. I mean, I guess I should give it a go, right? But so far I find myself unable to muster the interest to even complete the chargen and tutorial sections.


    Someone help sell me on this.

    Oh, man. I haven't touched this game since my initial playthrough and I had completely forgotten that you could plant grenades on people by sneaking around combat zones. Now it's all flooding back to me and I need to play again.

    Is there a bundle of all the DLC that I can pick up on the cheap? I've looked through Steam and all I can find is the GotY edition, which sort of sucks for folks who preordered the damn game.

    All I remember of this game is that once I got my house I proceeded to throw every bundle of "pre war money" I could find onto my bed.

    120 hours later, it nearly reached the ceiling.

    I know what you mean, I was level 13 before i handled everything in Megaton.

    Another fun thing to do, jump off the top of Tenpenny Tower and use the MIRV to make some extreme rocket jumps and see how high you go.

    I beat Fallout 3 and got to max level (post Broken Steel) and I still haven't done Point Lookout or Mothership Zeta. They're downloaded but I didn't see much point in taking my wasteland god on those missions when the best I'd get would be new weapons and maybe some armor.

    I started a new character so I could do evil stuff (also female stuff) but I didn't go far with her before putting the game down for Arkham Asylum, Modern Warfare 2, Fable 2 (which I only recently bought used) and like an hour of Left 4 Dead 2 on the 360 before I shelved it for some later date.

    I oughta' get back to that.

    If you own this on the 360 all the DLC is only 400 Microsoft fun bucks or 5 real dollars as opposed to the normal 800 points or 10 bucks.

    This is obviously the case because I finally broke down and bought Mothership Zeta last night for the full price.

    It is today only though, part of their holiday sales.
