    I'm looking forward to getting Fallout 3 so I can come back here and make sense of all these posts...

    Make sure you get the GOTY edition!

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

    I think the last time I saw it it was $30 (and that was for the Gears of War 2 GOTY edition, heh). Either way, if you don't get the GOTY edition, you'd be spending $10 per DLC. So basically $50 worth of DLC and then the game on top of that.

    Looks like $33 Used and $40 new. Still, that's a hell of a price for the game and all the DLC.

    If you do it right, there's a somewhat useful perk you can get out of it too.

    That's right, I forgot about that. Good perk, that one.

    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.

    Operation Anchorage
    The Pitt
    Broken Steel
    Point Lookout
    Mothership Zeta

    I can't believe I actually know all the names to the DLC. I guess Fallout 3 was that much of an epic game.

    I only got Broken Steel, Point Lookout, and the Pit. I've heard the other two were a little light for $10 each. (If you DL them).

    The level increase of BS makes it worth it and the new sotry elemnts are fun. Adding things like Reavers was cool too.

    Point Lookout's shotgun toting hillbillies and new map to explore rocked.

    There wasn't much to the Pit but I did like the story, it's very dark.

    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.

    Point Lookout and Broken Steel were my favorite, but like I said, I enjoyed all the ones I played. And I'll eventually play Mothership Zeta (thanks for the name) at some point.

    I bought Broken Steel and Point Lookout as a separate disc (at 10 bucks new, might as well), but haven't played/installed them yet until I finish the main campaign...but I was curious: how interchangeable are all the DLC? Are you able to use items/perks/level-ups etc from one DLC in the others? Is it possible to plug all the DLC in at once and have a MUCH bigger campaign map to play around in, work on multiple quests from different DLC? Or do you have to playthrough *just* a single DLC installment at a time?

    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.

    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.

    Yeah, these deals are really nice. I just bought Minerva's Den for Bioshock 2 for 400 MS points. The DLC is over a gig in space, so that should spend some of my time.

    Since you guys are talking about Fallout 3 so much, I think I may have to "borrow" my friends copy to play for a while. You guys are making me miss this game so much.

    I dug out my NES a few days ago and I've been playing that a lot. The last game I played was Journey to Silius. I'd give it an 8/10.

    I'll be playing Bioshock 2 this week mixed with Fallout 3 (thanks everyone!). I guess I'll do a 4th playthough of F3 and stuff. I freaking love that game.

    Fallout 3

    I came across the Nuka Cola plant and by extension, Nukalurks. A little later on, I had to sneak by a Talon merc hit squad. Good thing I have 6 stealth boys.

    Killzone 2 - 9/10

    Well done FPS, a Playstation exclusive. Like pretty much all shooters these days, a little too derivative of Call of Duty in the gameplay, but still a very good game. Pretty ****ing hard in spots, the enemies are relentless and fairly smart too. Looking forward to part 3, which comes out next month.

    Fallout 3 (what else?)

    On my way to rescue the Big Town residents from the super mutants. 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.

    In other news, I got the F3 add-on disc that has Broken Steel and Point Lookout through Goozex. And due to me forgetting to set everything to "On Hold" before buying more tokens and the internet connection going down again, I'm also getting Metroid: Other M.

    Both of my friends who love Metroid basically hated Other M. They literally lol'd at Meh: Mod It, Retro.

    Speaking of Brahmin. I was wandering around when I came across some Brotherhood Outcast having some sort of battle. I decided to investigate that, when we got attacked by 3 "Mad Brahmin". I could not help but LOL at the situation and sarcastically said "OH MY GOODNESS, We're so boned right now, guys."

    Been playing Fallout 3 today. I loaded up my recently abandoned 4th play-through at Vault 112. So I did tranquality lane. Made the one kid cry, then left the place. Dad said he'd meet me at Rivet City, so I told him there's other things I needed to do. As he left, I wandered around for a while... then went towards where Dad goes. Came across a Deathclaw, killed it. Moved on forward a bit, and came across another one who didn't have any idea if it wanted to attack me or not. At first, it ran after me, ran away. Stopped. Walked around. Looked at me, then ran after me again. Stopped again. Walked again, and then him and his buddy decided to attack when a random explosion came from the collapsed highway.

    After killing them, I went to find the cause of the explosion. My investigation came up with me empty handed.

    Headed to Megaton to sleep and do some trading with Moira. And got the schematics for the Rock-It Launcher. Saved. Then unloaded a teddy bear and 2 pre-war books on a guy. Just to have a good laugh. Then I quit.

    Man, Fallout 3 is so much more fun than New Vegas. I cannot wait for Fallout 4 and to see what Bethesda does with that.

    Played Minerva's Den for Bioshock 2 today. And then I ended up beating it today as well. For when I got it for 400 MS points, it was worth everything! It was fun and it took me about 4.5 hours to do everything in there. That's awesome for a piece of DLC that's not an RPG type DLC like Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas or Oblivion.

    Speaking of Bioshock, I picked up both games over my Christmas break for $20 apiece, but I have yet to play either of them.

    You should definitely enjoy both games. They're a blast to play and I love both of them! I definitely cannot wait for Bioshock: Infinite.

    "You Don't Know Jack" is coming to consoles next week. I used to play this game on PC years ago. I can't WAIT to play it again.

    I agree, we've been looking forward to the 360 version for some time now. The PC was great, but having everyone crowd around a keyboard was just blech.

    I played Phoenix Wright and Angry Birds on the iPod last night, and also bought that Game Dev Story because my friend recommended it. The iPod Touch is impressing me as a gaming machine right now, as I didn't think there was much depth to its games.

    I enjoyed crowding around my brother's computer, drinking coke and smoking cigarettes back in the day, but yeah, I'm ready to sit on my couch to play this game. I'm just curious if you can use the big-button Scene It? controllers or if you need 4 regular controllers.

    That's a good question. The Scene It bundles are super cheap now, so I was thinking of picking one up anyway. They just have the basic buttons and no D-pad though, don't they? I wonder if YDKJ would be impeded that way, like when you have to choose someone to use the Screw on. I think that used the D-pad back on the PlayStation.

    Yep, the Scene It? controllers have the ABXY buttons as well as the "big" button which also has directional functionality. I hope YDKJ allows for those controllers to be used, because they're good quality and user friendly.

    As far as Scene It? goes, if it's cheap now I would recommend picking it up. It's a fun, quick, casual game and if you're as big an achievement whore as everyone says ;), you'll love it, coz it hands out gamerscore like it's going out of style.
