Fallout 3

Filed under: Uncategorized — anteolsson @ 17:34

I have the pleassure of playing Fallout 3 and so far it is fantastic. I am currently quite far in the main quest and I have reached character level 14, six more to go.

I played both Fallout 1 and 2 but I never finished any of them. I didnt feel like I had too, don’t know why,but I had a very fun time playing them anyway. There are some real differences between Fallout 3 and the earlier versions but Bethesda has succeeded in preserving its atmosphere which in its all simplicity is post apocalyptic.

I bought a sensored versions so Morpin is called Med-x and some other drugs has probably also has their names changed. I do not like that at all, as sensoring rarly has any profound arguments behind them. Paintings, as artform, does not get sensored and there is noone that can say, with a valid argument, that Leonardo da Vinci is more of an artist than the game creators of Fallout 3, ie Bethesda Softworks. None the less, the game is superb and I somehow wish I was completely detached from any civilization so I could solely concentrate on living in the Fallout 3 world. I figure that would give Fallout 3 the attention it deserves and somehow requires.

I do not wish to be long so if you have not bought Fallout 3 yet then do so. Unless you have limited time that is.

  1. haha, this is my 30 min break from fallout 3. I’ve beat the game a couple times, with vastly different characters. I didn’t know that the game was censored, as far as i know all the games have med x, never heard of morpin. where have you seen an “uncensored” version?

    • You are actually correct. I had a second look and it tunrs out that all versions world wide is censored. Here is a link to a story on the subject> http://www.icgamers.com/articles/8209/fallout-3-censored-worldwide.html

      I started a second character that is more diplomatic and uses unarmed combat but I find it more difficult. what kind of characters did you play with?

  2. It’s best to start out building your small guns stats and agility at first, with a secondary focus on lockpick and sneak. The attribute “Agility” helps out greatly with small guns and sneak, and it also provides more AP for us in VATS. Later on in the game you should chose a second weapon class to begin working on in your stats, I usually go with melee weapons or explosives. There is a sword called the Shiskabob that you can build once you get the schematics. It’s a fiery fuckin sword, does great damage, and helps you save ammo.

    Energy weapons are flashy, but there no advantage to using them over regular “small” guns, and they are difficult to find and maintain early on in the game.

    I suggest you look into the unique weapons and try to get them before you get too far through the main quests. Get Lincolns repeater and Ol’ Painless, they are life savers and have 0 spread–which means when aiming in 1st person (not VATS) the bullet will land exactly where you put the crosshair.

    There is some unique armor that boosts small guns, luck, and AP called “ranger battle armor” you get from Reilly’s Rangers after a mission, look it up, it’s the best armor in the game.

    I could go on for days, but I have a link to my email on my main page if you click my gravatar, so email me there if you want to know more…I’m pretty nerdy about Fallout.

    • That is funny. That was the exact strategy for my first character. I got the Ranger battle armor and never changed it. The licoln repeater was the best I think but I found the terrible shotgun better in close VATS combat.
