Fallout 3

Recommended Posts

It really is fantastic. The combat system is a little perplexing but I'm glad they kept elements of the turn-based original. Blowing Raider's heads off is very, very satisfying. I seem to have lost an awful lot of karma in an afternoon's play. :devil:

cool, im really thinking about getting this now, do you not notice that they've just put out a load of games recently, i can't afford them all!

Zavvi have it for 35. I don't know if that's the cheapest high street deal but avforums is a good board to check for bargains and offers. Yeah, the pre-christmas releases are really coming in now. Difficult to choose, but I really don't have time to play them all, even if I could afford them!

I really love Fallout 3 so far. Maybe I'm just a pussy, but I find the whole experience extremely tense, and there's something unenjoyable about baseball-batting the doggies.

I opted for the PC version as I have a fairly high-end machine with twin graphics cards (cheaper too!) and I prefer mouse+keyboard for FPS game.

The graphics are outstanding and the feel of the game reminds me a lot of System Shock 2.

Looking forward to seeing how the game unfolds.

Y'know, I just built a PC with one of those new ATI GPU cards and I was kind of sucking my teeth over whether I should buy it for Xbox360 or PC, but I went for the Xbox360 version in the end. I was convinced by just how well Mass Effect worked out on Xbox and I figured they'd have made it primarily for that platform.

And I knead moar achievement!!!!11

I find it hard to be cool when I'm beating a dangerous dog with a bludgeon.

That's why I prefer to employ mad crazy gatz and cap 'em in tha caninium.:up:

I just got the hang of this game, the map was annoying me before and I was a huge fallout 1&2 fan.

Still not sure about the oblivion style controls. Also the enemies are stupid. I just keep luring them to me then using the VATS system on them. But it's quite good.

Shame im probably not going to touch it for ages when Gears 2 arrives tomorow. :up:

Fallout 3 is seriously epic. The first time you see the game world in all its desolate glory is a moment to behold - I almost found myself blinking in the sunshine.

And yes, it is pretty tense. The first time I ventured into the wasteland at night I I was holding my breath in an attempt not to alert any nearby enemies! That's immersion.

I've got cash for either Fallout 3 or Fable II when my Xbox gets back from the German red-ring dry-cleaners. I think Fallout is winning just now.

Yes. Fable is distinctly blah.

I finished the main story and didn't realise it until a friend told me I had.

That's how good the story is.

I got an Xbox on Monday with Fable 2 and Fallout 3 and so far haven't even brought Fable out of it's box and I am a huge fan of traditional RPG's. Strange times....

Just finished the main quest on Fallout 3 and a large amount of side quests! What an amazing game! Sooo good. Going to take a break and play left 4 dead for a bit with my friends, but will definitely play through it again.

Dayeth, you HAVE to purchase Left4Dead so that you can join terry, ally and I in the online coop!
