I got this game from Amazon yesterday. I can see myself staying up late tonight. And tomorrow night, and Friday night, and...



The trailer.
The official site.

A tip for new players: Save your game right before you leave the Vault. When you hit the exit, you're given the chance to completely redesign your character without doing the tutorial again.

I really wish I still had time for video games. I'm not huge into RPG's but I probably would have given Fallout 3 a shot. Gears 2 looks sick as hell too! But sadly, I'll probably miss that one as well.

There are so many games in the last year or two that I'll probably never get around to: COD4, Assissin's Creed, Rainbow Six... Although, I was able to squeeze in enough time to finish Bioshock a few months back. Probably the most addicting game I've ever played, they should have just titled it Electronic Crack.

Ah the days of no children, and only one job...Those were the good ol' days.

I thought Assasins Creed was much better than Bioshock.Although AC was pretty repetative

Its going to be an action rpg. Kinda like mass effect, or oblivion but with guns instead of swords.

Mass effect got boring, will this get boring?

Nope- It's not the wife at all...She doesn't mind if I sit an play a game once in a while. It's the fact that I'm working like four jobs, and have two young kids and one TV. There's no time or space for me to play, the X360 makes a great dvd player for barbie movies though!

Then you might like Fallout 3. It has a similar open-world design.

Fallout 3 has nukes.

Yeah, that's another one I want to try.

You can shoot anyone you want. You get "Karma" for your actions; I assume that murdering people would be "bad karma", but I don't know what happens if you're a jerk (I'm playing a good-guy my first time through the game).

The game also has targetable hit locations and slow-motion replays of your kills.



Last night I was fighting a guy who was wearing a welder's mask and body armor that my 10mm handgun couldn't penetrate, so I blew his right knee out from under him. I also blew up a psycho biker babe with a Claymore made from a kid's lunchbox and some nails. Hey, she started it...

I'm currently an asshole and addicted to nothing. I can find nothing to satisfy my craving. My friend just pick up Fallout and is singing its praises. I'll probably try it, but I'm not sure it'll be what I'm looking for.

The only hooker I've met so far was White. No homemade tanks yet, but I've only just started.

I got some Brotherhood of Steel powered armor, a minigun, and the "Fat Man" mini-nuke launcher over the weekend. Unfortunately, I don't have the skill to use the armor and I'm so inaccurate with the minigun it's nearly useless. I have to work on my "Big Guns" skill. What I really want is the "Rock-It Launcher", but I don't have the bottlecaps to buy the schematic. I have an addiction to Jet and Talon Company mercenaries on my ass. I'm such a "goody 2-shoes" that people are walking up to me on the street and giving me ammo and packs of Rad-X and a merc in a bar refused to work with me (my Karma level is up to "Ranger of the Wastes").

Incidentally, I thought that stripping a fallen Brotherhood knight of his armor would make them attack you or something, but they didn't seem to care. I even have the guy's dog tags, and none of the Paladins I've met have wanted them. This game does extremely well in terms of internal consistency, but there are some places where it falls on its face. The bodies of everyone I've killed are still lying around too, in pristine condition. The first guy I gunned down is still lying on the floor of the saloon where I left him, like a week later. He must smell pretty bad by now.

I also wish you could save or replay the V.A.T.S. action. I got surprised by a Raider while I had my sniper rifle equipped (this is why snipers operate in pairs, I guess) and shot him at a range of about 5 feet. His head exploded and his body leaped 3 feet into the air and cartwheeled over backwards, spraying blood in a big arc, all in slow motion. It was so disgusting, I'm still laughing about it. I wish I could have gotten a screen-shot or something.

I finished the game last night, and i wont spoil the ending, but i have to say its pretty lame. Also, if you get the super mutant following you around helping, it makes it one of the stupidest endings ever. Still, the game itself was good, i just rebooted my last save and im doing a few more side quests now, but when i have more time im going to be an evil character and blow the shit out of that town. Should be fun!

Heh. Yeah, me too. Poor town. Serves 'em right, though. I mean, seriously... What a dumb place to build a town...

I just ruined my game, i got a key for the armoury in megaton, went in and got attacked by some security bot which my ally killed. Then he went outside, and proceeded to kill every single megaton resident. Well, he might not of got em all yet, but hes finishing em off as we speak.

Lame.
