Today, I am going to talk to you about one of the greatest games in recent memory: (
The fifth game in the series (yes, I include Tactics and Brotherhood of Steel), and is a separation from the others in that it is the first game that can be played in first person. I am a huge fan of the series. So, as a more impartial look, here is a description I stole from some other review.
Fallout 3 is a profoundly engrossing role-playing game just waiting to reveal its deep, dark mysteries.
- Freedom to explore what you want, when you want
- Fantastic, intricate quests can be completed in a variety of satisfying ways
- VATS combat system results in all sorts of tense and gruesome encounters
- Outstanding art design makes for a desolate DC
- Rewarding mixture of excitement and atmospheric exploration.
- The story and characters can feel a bit sterile
- Combat feels mildly clunky.
A few screen shots (if I did this right they should pop embiggened)
Ok, now that I did the base description, here is what I am here for, the DLC (downloadable content).
Fallout 3 has 3, yes 3 add-ons (the third one isn't out just yet).Add-on one: Operation Anchorage
Enter a military simulation and fight in one of the greatest battles of the Fallout universe—the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from its Chinese Communist invaders.Add-on two: The Pitt
Travel to the post-apocalyptic remains of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and become embroiled in a conflict between slaves and their Raider masters. Explore a sprawling settlement ravaged by time, neglect, nuclear radiation, and moral degradation. The Pitt is filled with morally grey choices, shady NPCs, new enemies, new weapons, and much more.Add-on three: Broken Steel
This add-on will be available on May 5th, but the following link should take you to the right spot.
You may have dealt the Enclave a serious blow at Project Purity, but their forces are still out there, and still pose a grave threat to the people and security of the Capital Wasteland. In Broken Steel, you’ll continue your current Fallout 3 character past the events of Project Purity, and work with the Brotherhood of Steel to eradicate the Enclave threat once and for all. Travel to new locations like the Olney Powerworks, wield destructive new weapons like the Tesla Cannon, and fight powerful new creatures like the Super Mutant Overlord.Fallout 3: New Vegas
That's right. They are already working on another Fallout 3. This will not be a sequel or a continuation, just simply another game in the Fallout universe. This is expected to come out some time next year. Pic link goes to interview with developers.And remember kids, if you like the game, go out and buy it. You can find it for the Ps3, Xbox360 or Windows (not the lowest of prices available, so shop around). I really think it is worth the money, besides, its not like you need to buy the Survival Edition.
Oh, almost forgot.
