Default Fallout 3

My wife picked this one up for me for our anniversary and all I can say is:

GO BUY IT NOW!!!!!

My god what an awesome game. If you like Oblivion or, especially, if you liked the original Fallout games then this is the game for you. Everything old hands will remember and love with a ton more added. Quite possibly one of the best games I have ever played to date.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I'm going to try and get my greasy mits on it this month, it looks so good! But I wanted to properly finished Fallout 2, since the first time I played it I was far too young and silly to complete the game. But I've loved the series so far, and Fallout 3 looks and sounds like everything I expect.

One question though, have you heard which version is better, technically?

1500pts Celestial Lions
1000pts Warboss Judge Skull'Umper
500pts Vostroyan & Cadian 119th

I only loaned it out of work last week ( before it was on sale) and I actually was not that impressed. the intro was good, it looked beautiful but The first mission I got, which are usually quite simple and a good way to get into the style of the game, Had me attacked by 8 raiders, 2 with flamethrowers and heavy armour. It just threw you in too fast that way.... I might give it another try because I love oblivion and the other fallouts though....

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!!!

Alot of people are having that problem Lord Reevan. Did you go right to the story mission if so yea you will have some problems. I did all the survival quests in the shop in megaton before moving one. As there are 3 chapters of quests there you get to about lvl 8 and by that time you should have some nice perks and weapons such as flamer,minigun, laser Gatling gun and missile launchers.

Agreed, I did the Survival quests first and had no problems like that either. I -always- do every side quest I can before completing main ones as it is the best way to get exp and decent gear. Now I am at level 9 or 10 and can reliably clear out buildings filled with gatling gun toting supermutants. The sniper perk combined with a sniper rifle and VATS headshots is a beautiful thing

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

How like the oginal 2 is it...you know...does it have that special something?

Also, what specs does it require, and how well is it running? I'm looking at getting it, but yeah, worried about handling it on my current spec.

I've barely been bothering with quests at all so far. I've just been roaming the wastes like I used to in the old ones. Discovering stuff and the like. the most important thing to me is that it still has that real kind of free-roam vibe, possibly even better than Oblivion's. I'm something like level 6, and I've just been messing about in places like the school and the Nuka Cola plant more than anything.

I got really angry when I figured out that this was coming out right in the middle of my little sideshow trip. I'm hoping somebody sends it to one of the guys here, so I can see what it's like.

Hey Dirge, either order it from AAFES or put in a special request from the PX/BX on base. If that fails have one of the girls buy it for ya. That's an easy way of getting a copy.

love it so far, and I like how its throws you in at the deep end, and wandering around is actually dangerous, Oblivion was far far FAR too easy, not a single monster was ever a challenge and its impossible to die, but with fallout I walk into 1 city and have to fight 6 Raiders at once with only my 10mm pistol and a knife....eep, and I learnt what flamers can do to me...they can kill me...very quickly, it doesn't treat you like a child, it bends you over, buggers you hard and makes sure you remember.

love it
