    I have only had one instance of that happening. I had to drop a few Assault rifles to pick up a fat man and they vanished. Otherwise, I just store them at my suite at Tenpenny Tower.

    In all honesty, this game feels more like Morrowind than Oblivion to me. Just the way people interact and the way that you have to get to certain areas and the fact that there is so much more to do in between objectives. Always somewhere new to explore and find decent stuff.

    Was that suite awarded as part of a quest? Perhaps I should pursue the main a bit more to get stabilized like that, I've been a-wandering.

    I've found that if you store something in a box, locker, etc. inside of a specific building (Springvale High, Minimart, Library) it won't disappear. I've been using this for a few days to cash in on lose raider armor. Just fast-travel back to Megaton, unload then go back for the rest. :D

    its a dialogue bug. he isnt in the GNR building at all, but the BOS main base, which you get to later in the main quest.

    it took me about an hour of doing main quest only, to get to the power armour training.
    spoiler free, you have to escort some people to the BoS main base, and thats when you get in.

    its main quest. you even get a pointer on your compass and map, its kinda hard to miss it. Follow dad, and you'll end up there.

    At least Fallout 3 has lived up to its hype - not true of other games recently!

    Still, has lots of problems like Oblivion had.... Thing is when you have this much freedom, lots of things don't get worked out, cause well AI just isnt up to it.
    Example: You can enter a room of a group of people. Go into an adoining room with one of their 'friends'. Kill him, then put on his clothes and walk back in and talk to them -and noones none the wiser! And this happens with HEAPS of things!
    Example: you can steal things off people when you are hidden in another room from them. And suddenly they hate you! When theres no way they could have known.

    For me, its part of a greater problem in gaming- while recently visual have increased GREATLY, AI seems to be the down syndromed little brother, having not increased as proportionately.

    Anyway, enough ranting, its a good game! DIG!

    Well in the case of Fallout universe, people (and mutants) in it really are somewhat down syndromed.

    played it some more and compared to the pc version its not as polished, it has low load times but the AA AF is not as good

    the textures for fallout 3 on pc and consoles are to me some of them horrible

    but the story is picking up just gets annoying when shotguns seem to do little damage

    i did a few side quests now im going to just do most of the main quest


    the supermarket super duper mart has loads of guns so go there but be warned it is gaured heavy easy for those who have done a few quests are a few levels but at the start its going to be dodgy so sneak around

    was it better to destroy megaton or keep it? i keept it got a few side quests in the town but you could do that first then blow it up

    The reward for blowing it up is a suite in Tenpenny Towers, the reward for disarming the bomb, is a house in Megaton.

    If you blow up Megaton you lose all the quests that start in Megaton, but you can still do the quest at Tenpenny Towers, so you lose more by blowing Megaton up.

    make sure your gun is repaired, you have small arms skill, and you're up close.

    I find at distance i take 1-2 bars of health tops, yet i run up in their face, press the gun into their eye socket (sometimes literally) and smash V a lot. I then proceed to watch brains and eyeballs go flying on the first shot.

    TBH, the suite and house are about as useful as the houses in Oblivion are. Except for boxes to store your stuff and a bed their bloody useless, and their looks/condition mean nothing.

    A sneak attack critical on close range do wonders to super mutants. ^^. Too bad combat shotguns do not have burst fire. I also miss the feature in which burst fire do wonders to clumped up enemies.
