What's the game about?
Fallout 3 is a futuristic post-apocalyptic CRPG set in an alternate universe based on 50s sci-fi pulp fiction, as if the world had stopped in the optimistic 50s and found itself on a dystopian post-apocalyptic reality. It is a sequel to the games Fallout and Fallout 2.

The Player Character is a young inhabitant of Vault 101, a fallout shelter in the Washington D.C. area. The vault has reportedly been sealed for 200 years until the player's father opens the only door to the outside world and disappears without any explanation. The Vault Overseer believes that the player was involved in their father's escape, and sends the vault's security force to arrest him. This leaves the player little choice but to also escape from the vault, with the hope of locating her father and finding out why he left......


DLC information

Broken Steel will be first since the main story play though kinda overlaps with this one.

Broken Steel
Official Description: Continue your existing Fallout 3 game and finish the fight against the Enclave remnants alongside Liberty Prime. Broken Steel moves the level cap for your character from 20 to 30, allowing you to experience even more of the game, including new perks and achievements.

What it is: New and exciting environments to explore like metro tunnels and factories......hmmm, wait a minute. The raised level cap is nice though.

Mothership Zeta
Official Description: Defy hostile alien abductors and fight your way off of the massive Mothership Zeta, orbiting Earth miles above the Capital Wasteland. Mothership Zeta takes Fallout 3 in an entirely new direction – outer space. Meet new characters and join with them in a desperate bid to escape the Aliens’ clutches. To do so, you’ll wield powerful new weapons, like the Alien Atomizer, Alien Disintegrator, and Drone Cannon, and deck yourself out in brand new outfits, like the Gemini-Era Spacesuit and even Samurai Armor.

What it is: It's basically Raven Rock with aliens.

Operation: Anchorage
Official Description: Enter a military simulation and fight in one of the greatest battles of the Fallout universe – the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from its Chinese Communist invaders. Gain access to unique armor, weapons, and exotic gadgets while you build and command interactive Strike Teams to win the battle and defeat the Chinese base.

What it is: A way to level the playing field by stripping you of all your equipment

Point Lookout
Official Description: Point Lookout opens up a massive new area of the Wasteland – a, dark, murky swampland along the coast of Maryland. So hop on the ferry to the seaside town of Point Lookout, for the most mysterious and open-ended Fallout 3 DLC adventure yet.

What it is: A decent sized open world environment to explore, the setting being a cross between Fallout and Deliverance. It will make you squeal like a pig boi!

The Pitt
Official Description: The Pitt allows you to travel to the post-apocalyptic remains of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and become embroiled in a conflict between slaves and their Raider masters. Explore a sprawling settlement ravaged by time, neglect, nuclear radiation, and moral degradation. The Pitt is filled with morally gray choices, shady NPCs, new enemies, new weapons, and much more.

What it is: Adds an interesting enough quest line and a nice new area to explore, it's what Paradise Falls should have been.

    Eh, FO3, with all the DLC, stands on its own legs more than well enough. Playing it on the 360, there was no option for mods and from start to finish, 130 hours on my main guy and more on others, I never once felt like I needed a mod for anything.

    Having said that, this is gonna be one amazingly long ass LP if dude does even close to everything there is to do, with all the quests and all the DLC's.

    Worth watching for the accent alone.

    Most of the F3 experience is the mods, especially on PC, but they're all very subject to personal taste, so it's probably for the best to leave them out for now. I mean, I don't really like a bunch of hi-tech assault rifles and desert combat fatigues kicking about the wastes, but a lot of people seem to.

    Definitely one of the better mods that was shared with me in the Fallout thread was the RTS one. It was something I felt should have featured more in the main game, settlements and making improvements to them like one does to the personal rooms.

    What?

    No.

    For one "especially on PC" doesn't even make sense because there are mods only on the PC.

    And I would argue that the massive game and the DLC for it would qualify as "most of the F3 experience" over some random mods made by the community for one of the 3 platforms the game was released on. I suspect it wasn't even the highest selling platform. A quick google search confirms that, at least for the launch numbers. So "most" of the people who experienced FO3 did it mod-less.

    Look, mods are fine and dandy, but there's a point when it's not even the game you bought and it just becomes an engine that people use to make their own shit.

    It just gets tiring to listen to people go on about how you're playing FO3 wrong if you're not using mods when the majority of people playing FO3 can't or don't use mods at all anyway. It's just a dumb statement and it's just factually incorrect.

    EDIT: In summary people need to not give the person doing the LP shit for playing the game that they bought and that is in the title.

    It truly is blasphemy all this talk about using mods, real men go vanilla!

    Fanboy alert: I honestly have such a hard on for this game that I never though it needed anything changed, the only thing that ever annoyed me was the constant crashing on the PS3 version.


    I actually forgot to mention in the first set though, I did actually look through the recommended mods on a thread in the Bethesda forums but none of them really appealed to me. Apart from the item degradation one of course.

    I did try and use one that was supposed to tweak the weapons and make some of them a lot less useless, but all it did was tweaked the game so that it crashed instantly every time I started it up.

    I also installed the unofficial patches to hopefully fix some of the problems. I don't know how I talked so much on the video and yet hardly said anything useful.

    I'm going to update the OP and mention how I'm going to try and handle updates.

    There are some really good mods that don't actually change the game. Just add fluff stuff or tweak stuff. Retextures, lighting, etc.

    Then there are things like Conelrad which are the best thing ever. (I liked the music so much I burnt a bunch of it to CD and listen to it every time I'm in my car.)

    EDIT: In summary people need to not give the person doing the LP shit for playing the game that they bought and that is in the title.

    This needs to be gotten out of the way: If you're playing this game without mods, you are doing it wrong. If you're playing on the console, you're not necessarily doing it wrong other than the previous statement.

    Now, what level of mods people use is of course up to their own discretion. However, the Unoficial patches fix so much stuff that there really is no reason not to use them, and there are some mods that actually make characters look less terrible and still others that improve the graphics quality.

    No need to change the gameplay with mods (though really I highly recommend FOOK2 to anyone) to use them, but they do vastly improve the vanilla experience of the game.

    That said, I can't wait to start watching this tonight after work. I have played the crap out of Fallout 3 and yet still I'm interested in seeing how someone else does it.

    At the very least, the mod that adds a bunch of new (appropriately themed even!) songs to GNR is nice, if only so you aren't listening to the same 5 over and over again. But this really isn't the place to be discussing mods, so whatever.

    In any case, the first set of videos was pretty great. Can't wait for more!

    That said, I can't wait to start watching this tonight after work. I have played the crap out of Fallout 3 and yet still I'm interested in seeing how someone else does it.

    So the vast majority of people who bought and played the game and the DLC's on both consoles, and likely quite a few on the PC who never touched mods did it wrong?

    Those poor poor millions of people.

    Lets see, an article I read last night said they shipped something like 4mil units of the game at launch and only about 18% of those were PC sales.

    A quick glance at Fallout Nexus shows the highest endorsed download is simply the mod manager at 200k unique downloads. The next highest endorsed file that's not fake porn is MMM at a whopping 90k unique downloads.

    So bare minimum 3.9 million people played the game wrong and 90k played it right!

    Awesome.

    Again, there's nothing wrong with mods. Use em, enjoy em, whatever. But the game is absolutely full and complete on its own and the DLC's just expand on it and make it better. If you play without mods you're doing it right and you're playing the game you bought, not just some engine to dick around with.

    So stop.

    EDIT: Sorry, this is a LP thread, not the FO3 thread. I'll stop so the person can do their LP in peace.

    Ahh, finally got to watch the videos... excellent stuff.

    Regarding your skills, I agree you should keep small guns, but I guess repair (a skill I tag almost always) isn't so useful to you since your stuff isn't going to degrade all that fast. Still, it'll be good to have in order to make sure your weapons are of as high a quality as possible.

    Since you're going kinda sneaky, you probably don't really need Medicine since, even with the skill in the mid/low 20s, Stimpacks heal for a bunch. Melee is likewise kinda meh because even without skill you can really beat the hell out've things if you need to and have a good weapon like the Shishkabob or Ripper.

    So I'm voting for Small Guns, Sneak, and either Lockpick or Repair. Probably Lockpick.

    Well set 2 is now up, recorded them before I saw these but it's pretty much the way I'm going, except the medicine thing but it's so early in the levelling process that I can veer off any way really. Once we get to level 4 and get the comprehension perk I'll be looking out for manuals more so all the skills will get a nice little boost.

    It was just a vote, no big deal. However you choose to spec, it stops mattering in the later game anyhow when you get so many books, bobbleheads, and skills from levelling that you can pretty much max out anything and almost everything. :D

    I've personally started so many characters in F3 that I've lost count, and almost always go small guns because they're so fun and diverse... especially with mods like FOOK2.

    I agree. No matter what kind of weapons you like to use, small guns is invaluable. Sniper rifle? small gun. Assault rifle? small gun. Big pistol? small gun.
    Pretty much anything not really big, is a small gun. I kind of felt like maybe their should have been more of a pistol/smg proficiency and a rifle proficiency, but whatever.

    I couldn't help but anticipate your character running into those super mutants (I just snuck past them at night the first time I found them) when that was the quest you decided to go on first and that is just the beginning of what I figure will give you trouble in the upcoming quest since it leads you all around and underground. I so would have went to pick up a bag of groceries and medical supplies for Moria first, at the very least. And are you not looting like crazy and selling it all in Megaton for some better gear/repairs/ammo counts/pad improvements and stashing the rest at your pad?
