So, who here has this yet? I do, and I've gotta say, I'm absolutely loving every single second of it.

I do need to say, that it indeed is "Oblivion with guns", but that isn't a bad thing at all.

I was worried though, being a fan of the original old computer games, I was one of the people who thought bethesda would totally screw it up. I'll admit, the game *Is* missing out on what made the old games great, but I can understand them taking out crotch-shots and child murder, since today's media would have a shitstorm over it all. "CHILD KILLING MURDER SIMULATION GAME!!"

I do want to see them release the construction set for it though, so people outside their company can add in some of the stuff that was cut. As sick as thos will sound, there was something so wrong but hillarious about killing children by delivering a sledgehammer to the crotch.

Also, I would love to see someone make the porn star quest from Fallout 2. Nothing like having a low charisma score and being the fluffer, or having it around 8 or 9 and being the star of the film. "cunnilinguist". Heheh.



Also, it's actually one of those rare games you know you're gonna replay over and over. My next character will be an evil bastard cannibal who just kills everyone, friend or foe, with a minigun. Then possibly a neutral martial artist who also uses the odd baseball bat. Or a trap laying mexican. SO MANY OPTIONS!!!





I love Fallout.

I bought it last week for the 360. I love it to pieces. And weirdly enough, I have the same glasses/hat combo as you. Though I'm a sniper person =3

The opening part when you use your statpoints the first time... it made me laugh hard. Googly sounds, ftw

"You're SPECIAL!"

I do hope, however, that with Fallout 3 being introduced to others, that it drives people to check out Fallout 1 and 2. They're both different and primitive, but they have much more charm and better writing compared to Fallout 3. Fallout 3 has the graphics and atmosphere, but 1 and 2 have the "soul".

I really want to play them, But I couldnt find them anywhere, even for download =/.

Hopefully Bethesda will buy the rights to 1 and 2 and release them on Live =3

You can get the collection (Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics) on amazon.com for $27.99. And then there's likely less legal ways of obtaining it.

The thing that has me worried about Fallout 3 is the lack of the original feeling. Like Tafshin said, that some of the soul isn't there. What do you other guys think? How much remains of the 50's post-apocalyptic sci-fi feel?

I don't want to be disappointed again as I was with Fable 2. Don't get me wrong. Fable 2 was a great game, but it didn't live up to the first one in the fairy-tale feeling department.

Fallout 3 does have the feel, admittedly. It does feel like a fallout game, but in the same way Fallout Tactics compares to Fallout 2. It just feels... well, Like a fallout side story, than an actual sequel.

Not to say it's a bad thing, since Fallout 3 *is* freakin' awesome. It definately has that fallout feel, but It feels like the charm of the first two games hit a snag somewhere. The charm and soul of fallout is definately there, just not as prominent as it was in Fallout 1 or 2.

Doesn't make it any less of a kickass game, though. Nothing like loading up the rock-it launcher with random garbage you find and using it as ammo. I decapitate you with a plate!! Scrap Metal! A leg brace! Hah-ha!!

I think that the sequelness can be described as this:

The first 2 games have the mass appeal of a cult classic. And bethesda wanted to make the game more accessible to people who never played a fallout game before, but still get the main premise behind the first two to go snag them up and complete the puzzle. If they did make it a direct sequel, they risk alienating a large majority of people interested in it pre-launch

I just installed Fallout 3 last night and I just got past the "GNR" quest and I am on the one given by Three Dog. Anyways I found a fatboy and 8 mini-nukes I took them back to my house and stored them since I have no idea when I should take them. I'd prefer to use it on some badass that can really take a beating..

I never played the first Fallout's BTW.


Oh and Kraiden please tell me where you got that chain gun!

The original Fallout can be played for free over on Gametap, with the other two games available for subscribers. You can also buy the games for $5.99 each at Good Old Games.

Also, Bethesda already has full control of the Fallout IP (although they've licensed Interplay to make an MMO), although I'm not sure if that counts distribution of the original games.

Without spoiling stuff, I would leave the main questline well alone, since it's fairly short, and you can't keep playing after you've beat it. Still, I'd say less than 5% of the game is the main quest, anyway.

Been hearing people go "AWW, I beat the game in 2 days, this game sucks!" when they haven't even touched any of the sidequests. You done the assassinations? the cannibal missions? Wasteland survival guide? Found all those bobblehead and bonus perks? Bah.

The chaingun is found on various supermutants. Still, that was just taken for screenshot's sake, I actually suck with them. (12% big guns skill)

Now, the Railspike gun and the power fist... Muahaha..





The Powerfist is the best weapon ever. Just the gigantic metal smashing sound as you shatter limbs is gorgeous.

Kraiden, those pictures are fucking phenomenal!

I'm not sure what kind of character I have yet. I've played for almost 20 hours now, and I haven't even gone to the first leg of the main mission. I've been focusing on all of the side-missions and doing generally everything I can to squeeze time out of the game (I don't even auto-travel, no matter what.) It's an absolute blast, and pleasantly more different than I first expected.

Ooh, and the Ripper? Definitely my favorite weapon!

I wish I could show pics! I'll just happily settle for Kraiden's awesome ones!

It's made for screencapping. I spend hours (and I do mean hours) constantly reloading quicksaves to capture that specific moment in time that shows off a moment of badassery. I absolutely *love* videogames I can do that to. There's very few videogames that are made for taking awesome action screenshots, but fallout is simply made for it.

Now, as with every post I make.. Screenshots!!


Wow, what the? what a quaint little place!


Muahahahaha!!!!

So Kraiden, I just got the Rock-It Launcher, so now that I've used it and the Power Fist, I have to disagree on the Power Fist being the best weapon, in favor of the Rock-It Launcher. VATSing the merc in Moira's store with a baseball to the face, watching his eyes close as blood goes everywhere...

Its priceless, yo.

PS, is that pre-war screencap part of the playable story plot thing?

I just got a flame throw and I nearly saved up enough bottle caps (954) for the rock-it launcher. I am about 3/5th way done with the main quest but I been going around killing raiders, monsters etc and being going to factory's. There's a lot of useful stuff in the factory's I swear. I highly suggest going to the robo corp near Tenpenny's tower.

Also in Megaton if you help fix the water pipes for the guy at the water plant he will give ya about 200 bottle caps and around 175 XP. Then after that he will buy scrap metal from you for a pretty good price and when you turn it inyou also get so xp from it as well.

Is fallout 2's story any good. I'm stuck in the god damn Mutant factory becasue my game crashes if I go near the elevator so I never moved on to 2 and I am downloading three.

I'll probably end up doing 3 then 2 years in the future.

Fallout 3 is nothing like the other Fallout games. Its the same setting, tone etc but it surely is not the same gameplay style. Anyways its totally fun.


As for my game I found Vault 106 in the game. :) Its not far from Vault 101 at all.

It did for me too. I did not even explore the whole thing even though I had supply's to do so. Right now I am trying to find DogMeat, your pet dog in the game who can die. I heard he is located in a scrapyard near Minefield. I looked all around that place but all I found was a crappy factory nothing in it really asides radtion. S sniper took his rifle and I ran into this big ugly $&#^er. It was called a deathclaw I guess, he looked like a cross between Nemisis for Resident Evil and a Super Mutant. Lucky a group of raiders took him out but I got no XP due t it.

Also I am at level 9.

Hey, I just got to Level 9 too. I found a Deathclaw ripping... Literally ripping, into wastelanders in the city near the sewers. I do suggest going all the way through v106, due to the mini-nukes in thar.

Also, Im at the school now where I'm pondering going into the basement and eleminating the ant problem. I also found a ledger stating that the raiders there were trying to tunnel their way into a vault, so maybe I can sneak in 101 and get the bobblehead xD

I been in that school as well but all I found was a dead end. I just got rid of the fire ant problem I guess in this other town where you find the lone kids. Also I found the science bobble head in vault 106 I think..
