Played a little more today with my first character to try and find all one hundred locations (easier said than done once you have +60.) Those of you who played the first two will be delighted to know that if you find the scrapyard then dogmeat makes a return. He's not as useful as some of the others you can get to accompany you, but not everything is.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I hadn't memorized dates, only remembered roughly that a key event (the war it seems) happened in mid to late 00's. The mistake was mine. I must be punished.

Fallout obsessive here. Couldn't help but correct you. ;)
It was the resource war really ramping up in the mid-00's that really sparked everything off.

Didn't like it first off when I first took it home. Seemed to really throw you in at the deep end, 10 minutes after leaving the vault I was attacked by 8 raiders, three with heavy armour looking stuff and flamethrowers.... Played it again and went through the survival guide and I'm really enjoying it now....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

the game is very well done...but its so depressing and is loaded with "nightmare fuel" (i.e. Ghouls, both civil and feral). I rented it and I'm about to beat it, but I probably won't be buying it

i have it on the 360 (for those of you with crap ass comps like mine) and have found that if you are faced with a sentry bot, dont aim for the head, for they are headshot proof (also helps to have a fat boy, the only weapon in the game that can kill them in one shot... on very easy), has anyone found the ghoul-tree? head north to the top middle (dont go in the town, full of deathclaws) to the west of the town, explore around the rocky cliffs until you see the skinny path that is surrounded by cliff, and follow to Oasis
note to any of you who have gotten to the top of tenpenny tower, yes you can jump off the top, and yes, you will die

Commissar Cain, Hero of the Imperium (or so everyone thinks)

All your base are belong to us!- Rome Total War

If you ever hear the word milk run in your mission briefing, then you can be assured something is going to go spectacularly wrong.
