I didn't fast travel at first, but then I started to get really bored of walking everywhere, especially to dump stuff in my "safehouse". I'd say the first 5-10 hours were harder than normal but like you say, as long as you manage to get good equipment it's fine.
It was an interesting direction to take though. I do hope the next Fallout has more colour though, and less load screens -,-

From what I've heard, fans of the first few fallout games tend to not like Fallout 3 because the tone and setting (Washington DC instead of the Western Seaboard) but much prefer New Vegas which is a much closer match in many ways. In terms of humour, location, the faction system.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed FO 3 but I was annoyed that I couldn't opt to join the Enclave. Also people object to the Brotherhood of Steal going from a few paranoid hoarders in a back room in California to a large group of holy knights protecting everyone.
Plus the ending to FO3 (with no dlc) makes no sense if you have Fawkes.

I bought 14 of games at Blockbuster and traded them in at Game for 25. If you can get hold of cheap games it's a good scam.

But why would you want to do a thing like that? You spend hours and hours roaming the wasteland looking for your dad, only for the bloody Enclave to turn up and mess everything up. *grumbles*

I'm loving having my luck cranked up to ten. I'm sure it'll pay off in the casinos but it's already pretty handy.
I got ambushed on the road by three raiders. They were charging towards me (my gun skill was pretty low so I wasn't doing much damage) when one pulls out a grenade and prepares to throw it at me. He fumbles, drops it and it blows up, killing two outright and leaving one very wounded and crippled.
I stared at the screen in surprise and chuckled as I finished off the last guy.

That's brilliant, I can't remember seeing anything quite like that.
I kind of wish I still had things left to see in that game with all this talk of it but I systematically scoured the map for ever bit of content going. I really hope there's some news from Bethesda about a sequel that uses the Skyrim engine sooner rather than later, I need a fresh fix of the wasteland.

Kind of agree with you Z. I'd be kind of up for playing it but ive platinumed it and seen almost everything.
I did see a guy drop a grenade once, but my favourite thing was shooting grenades mid air or ones that were still in their hands

That's always fun. Apparently luck affects how often enemies have mishaps. It can range from dropping grenades to having guns jam etc.

I'm banned from two strip casinos but I have over 30,000 caps. I had maybe 2,000 when I got to Vegas. cool.gif

New Vegas: Ultimate Edition is out, and includes all the DLC. It's 22, and I'm sure the DLC alone must be nearly that much. I got New Vegas for free with my console and never touched it, I might just buy this to go with my Fallout 3 GOTY Edition.

I have to admit I saw that on Steam before I started this xbox play through and almost got it. It's a little bit more expensive on pc but now I've got an awesome gaming pc I was very tempted, especially given the mods etc, but I'll wait until it's in a steam sale.

Bought Disgaea 3 for my Vita today. Comes free with all the PS3 DLC which goes for a mental 40....
Shame the sprites weren't reworked or anything (the ones in 4 look great), but oh well. I play for the gameplay not the visuals.

Harley Quinn's Revenge DLC to conclude Arkham City once and for all.
It sounds like a nice way to wrap up the story and take care of the lingering questions surrounding Harley's pregnancy. A rare case where I'll gladly pay for the content seeing as it's bound to be high quality based on previous output.
