Apparently, I effed the whole thing up ("QUEST FAILED!"), but from a moral standpoint, I can't understand why, for the life of me. Okay, these dudes are harassing the good townsfolk of Arefu, right? They've supposedly kidnapped Ian, right? Yet when I go to their lair, and they open fire on me and I proceed to wipe out The Family, everything's red-lettered and I'm losing Karma right and left. And to boot, now I'm an *enemy* to the people of Arefu. I rescue a kidnap victim, wipe out a family of raiders, and now *I'm* the bad guy....? Go figure

That raider group shouldn't have just flat out attacked though, maybe you killed the gaurd out front? That'll piss them all off.
NoMoreVillains;4273963 said:I really had no trouble with The Family. The sentry was glad to relieve me of 100 caps and I had a good conversation with Vance. I ended using an Intelligence check to create a win-win for everybody.
Lawdog1521;4273988 said:It's because I didn't take any lip my first play through. I was essentially a good guy but I wasn't aginst starting a fight with people either. In fact, that's why I killed all of Paradise Falls, the guy out front was a *** to me. Freeing the slaves was an afterthought.

Pbateman;4274039 said:Because of all the DLC that's included on the disc? Depends on how cheap I can get it.

clashcityrocker10;4274331 said:I'd say it's worth it. I enjoyed all of Fallout 3's DLC to varying degrees. Well, I haven't play the alien one (can't remember the name) yet. But I have it downloaded.
UntilWeHaveFaces;4274523 said:They had good weapons. MZ and O:A both had good weapons to use. MZ was good for alien O:A was great for stealth.

Rockox;4274947 said:I believe all the DLCs (minus BS, which extends the story once you've completed the main quest) can be played at any time thoughout your time in the wastes. The game will recognize it's installed and you'll receive a notification on your pip-boy to travel to a certain area on the map to start the DLC.All items/perks/level-ups from DLC can be used in the main game. The only thing is that most of the DLC will take you to locations OFF the map, and sometimes you're stuck in a DLC location for a while, if not its conclusion.Personally, I would suggest doing Operation: Anchorage as early as possible because it's fairly easy and you get some riDICulously cool weapons and armour at the end of the mission.Man, we've been talking about Fallout for quite a long time here.
NoMoreVillains;4275154 said:I was wondering how the DLC would fit in. I plan on getting Broken Steel and one other DLC for the time being. Hopefully, the string of discounts on Xbox Live will extend to Bethesda.

But first, I'm trying to get more stimpaks.There was an interesting situation at Arefu. Crow's caravan was there and while I was looking up at the highway sign, Crow runs by. I turn around and a Yao Guai is attacking Crow's brahmin. That brahmin was actually fighting back. I armed my Rock-It launcher and helped kill the damn bear.
