    I hear that Bethesda might release a patch where you can continue playing on.

    At least give us a warning that the final quest will be FINAL.

    It makes a save called #0002 if you look in your saves, its in the gift shop right before you cant go farther! And they made a save called #0001 at the end of 101 so you can make a new guy and not have to go through the first part again!

    Yep either that or go type in showracemenu in the command console to change the sex, race, hair etc of your character.

    I beat the game just now. I was very disappointed how short it was. Once I got Tesla Armor and a Plasma rifle, the game became... easy. I am going to play it heavy weapons guy next. And do all the quests on the side. I will also blow up Megaton and all the stuff I did not do the first time around.

    Saw a youtube video of it. PRETTY AWESOME EASTER EGG. Looks like the only alien power cells that you will get for it is the ones next to the ship.

    From the moment that robot "sliced" the birthday cake on the first sequences, I knew that the humor this time is going to be different from previous installations...

    Wouldnt it be cool if Bethesda made a total remake of the first 2 series? (but then again, you'd know where to find the waterchip from FO1 :D )

    Expansion pack is inevitable for FO3 though..

    got it on 360 a bit dissapointed but its a good game eitherway, just has the graphics and texture problems

    loading is fine story is fine everything else is okay i think tho this is going to get completed during the week and traded in on friday for gears of war 2

    its just not gripping me like other games have like oblivion or mass effect did

    it like stalker oblvion with condemed graphics and some 50s 60s bioshock stlye stuff

    all the skills ect do are for survival you need like science and repair and lockpick and the gun ones

    3rd person view is just horrible tho

    the story and gameplay are good enuf to overcome the short falls but if it dosnt pick up soon im gonna be trading for gears next friday while it still has some trade in value

    That sucks - how bad is it?

    not sure your point. there are multiple ways to complete quests in the game - talking people out of things, fighting your way through, and so on - the key is that its not possible for one character to do all of them, therefore its got replayabilty.

    agreed. the character is off too far to the side.
    good for screenshots however.

    maybe you need to change the quests you're doing. the side quests and the main quests have a very different feel to them.

    bloodlines quest with the vampires and i did a few others im not far into the game but i took down a few super mutants, one fight i just planted a few mines and lured the rock it guy into them, then the other guy i used the rock it to take out which was fun blasted him right in the chest using vats

    but it got annoying when i had no ammo and had to run away from a mutant persisant bastard, he kept running and even when i was in the distance he kept getting shots on me i was like jesus just bugger off

    there is this random police HQ coverd in mutants too

    i dunno but i felt like i had to do the small arms up to survive and the repair or science whatever it was

    the textures in game are not as good as the screenies look, on my mates tv you could notice all the jaggies on everything the charcter faces are not that good and some of the graphics have other issues it could be a console thing tho but when your out you hardly notice the jaggies but the textures are sometimes not that great

    none of the graphics take away from the game tho i just put up with them but its a bit sad hopefully ill test on my new monitor and its better

    the graphics do sound like a console thing. They look great on PC (which is probably the source of the screenies)

    With the game, i managed to get a laser pistol and ammo at the very start, in megaton. You dont need small arms if you dont want it. I raised it to 40, just so i can use a sawn off shotgun for emergencies.

    My 2nd Character majors in Energy Weapons, Repair and Speech. Not only can I talk my way out of situations but if necessary I can blast the b*****d in the face :p

    KieranD, that "random police HQ" is actually part of a quest :)

    I plan to play it through again.. then I'll name my character "The Messiah". Then I'll kill everyone from the moment I can get a hold of a deadly object. All of em. Too bad children don't die in FO3. And no more groin shots too.

    Anyone here know how to enable SLI on this game? I opened up my RendererInfo.txt, and it shows SLI mode : no. RendererInfo.txt is not a config file. I tried looking up fallout ini files and found no traces of 'SLI' or anything related to multigpu or dual gpu...

    This is why I am taking my time. Looking in every nook that I can find. I am enjoying it very much. The only thing is that I have only found a few decent cities with merchants so far.

    Do things disappear here like Oblivion? I'm a hoarder in these games, which gives me problems early on when I don't have a storage space. If I just leave the stuff somewhere, will it disappear?
