    Bought this yesterday, i haven't played much at all due to college work. So far I think it's brilliant! The graphics are spot on, the guys at Bethesda have really done a good job. The only thing bugging me is that it mimics Oblivion a little (which isn't a bad thing to be honest, you have to escape very early on just like oblivion, and the travel system appears to be very closely related) What do you all think of it?

    Heather told her mom to get me this for christmas. I pretty much played it the entire christmas weekend and now have at least 30+ hours into the game. I spent at least 10 hours just doing the side mission for 1 person. The lady that wanted to make the book and needed information for each chapter.

    I also finally got enough money (bottle caps) to buy the schematic for the "Rock-it-launcher" Holy crap this might be the coolest weapon I have ever seen in a game. You can seriously shoot ANYTHING through this gun. Teddy bears, forks, soap boxes, bloody limbs. Yes you can even shoot bloody limbs out of this gun. You can blow peoples bodies apart with soap boxes and anything else you put into this gun. :lol:

    I simply cant get enough of this game. I also spend a lot of time just collecting everything I see and bringing it back to my house in Megaton. I love games that let you collect tons of loot. I cant believe how much stuff is in this game.

    I finally got the dog last night. I sure wish I would have found him 30 hours ago. He really comes in handy in battle. Well accept against fire ants. I save before each battle and if he dies I reload. Those fire ants destroy him so I have to keep him back in those battles.

    I love how he will search for food, weapons, or other items. Its also just fun having him by your side to give a heads up when enemies are around. Feels kinda like the dog in Fable 2 but the dog in fable 2 was designed much better and didnt look as corny running around. I still appreciate this dog for sure.

    I still want to make all the special weapons. I made the "Rock-It-Launcher" but I still want to make the other 3 or 4 special weapons. I just have no idea at all where the schematics are for them.

    I simply could not stop playing this game over the holiday weekend. So far I made 6 different weapons and I bought all of the items for my house in Megaton. I am currently level 17 with repair maxed out at 100. I also have over 65 hours into this game just since christmas. So addictive. :tup:

    I finally found out how to move objects around in this game. You basically have an invisible hand that allows you to place anything where you want it. On shelves, under shelves, onto anything. So I took a few random pics from the game after collecting a few Teddy bears, toy truck, pool balls, gnomes, toy cars, hammers, and other items. Also my workbench, infirmary, nuka cola machine, and laboratory. This is just the beginning.These pics are in my Megaton house. Also my dog and Star Palin Cross.

    I found this while roaming through the wasteland and truly tried to bring it back to my Megaton house. I could not put it in my inventory so I seriously carried this thing for 30 minutes to Megaton. :lol: The only bad part is that I could not bring it into Megaton or into my Megaton house. As soon as I go to open the door it drops. I also could not fast warp with it.

    FYI the 1.1 patch should be automatically applied today and according to the official web site comes with the following bug and quest fixes.

    Caution notes may contain spoilers.

    I have around 77 hours into this game.
    As I stated earlier in this thread, Lucy and Walters helper died in Megaton by falling through a guard rail. Walter is also missing. These are bugs that should be patched now.
    I have read about freezing issues and I finally came across one. I was near the hospital and the crashed alien ship then it kept freezing big time. I had to shut the 360 off at least 3 times in a row and only in that area. I think it had something to do with the cars exploding and the excessive radiation. If you get near that alien ship you will get around 29 rads per second.

    I'm only around 20 hours and the only issues I've had is with Dogmeat getting stuck somewhere only to reappear hours later. Actually I recently lost him somewhere in the Museum Station on my way to Rivet City. I've spent a fair amount of time at RC and the Broken Bow and he has yet to reappear so I'm kinda starting to wonder if I'll ever see him again.

    Edit again

    It doesn't make mention of it, but I wonder if the patch effects the Big Guns Skill Book exploit at Bethesda Ruins?
    ------

    Anyway based on feedback on the PS3 F3 thread it looks like this exploit didn't get touched. Sorry for any confusion.

    Finally finished up the game on my first play through as good.
    1st play through as good 105 hours, 160 locations discovered.
    2nd play through as evil. 5 hours, 10 locations and already blew up Megaton.

    **Storyline spoiler ahead**
    Anyone else disappointed that the game ending did not show anything at all that happens with Oasis?? I tried 2 different endings and still nothing at all about what happens to Oasis. I let him live and added the ingredient to his heart that would expand the growth across the world. My friend killed him and we both still had the same endings. Nothing at all mentioned about Oasis.
    Besides that the last ending mission was really fun and exciting.


    I also finally beat the game last night.

    Every single person I talked to said they got through it in about 2-3 hours and once you finish it you cant go back.
    So with that said I will just wait until the March DLC pack is released which will increase the level cap.

    How do you get all the items in the same place? When I collected a hundred or more empty cola bottles I took them from my cupboard dropped them on the floor but only 1 bottle was there (representing the 100 I had put down).

    Haha! Why would you not use the VATS? It's probably the most important feature! Glad you're enjoying it now though. Say goodbye to your life!

    Put them into a locker, mail box, or anything else that allows you to place items. At one point I had over 4,000 items in my megaton locker.

    Oh yeah Vats is THE best part of this game.
    Here is a video of an amazing headshot in Fallout 3 using vats.

    Yes I always put my stuff in my Megaton lockers but when I take more than 1 of something out it only drops on the floor visually as 1 object.

    Oh yeah I see what you are saying. I had to drop one death claw and teddy bear at a time for the pics above. If you try to drop 20 at a time it will show 1 but if you go to click it it will actually be 20. Thats why my teddy bear pic above has them in a circle. As you drop each item it will circle around your body. Its time consuming but its the only way to take a picture if you have a lot of items in your inventory.

    Yup, yup , yup that's what I mean! Thanks for clearing that up mate. Glad it's not a glitch with mine.

    Anyways, I finished the game last night... I'm going straight back to the savegame before the final quest and am itching to scour every inch of DC and the Wasteland to get all the loot and weapons I can. I still can't believe how amazing this game is it's (dare I say it) Championship Manager addictive.

    Got the Blackhawk last night but haven't fired a shot off on it yet. Got that as my sidearm the flamer as my primary and the Deathclaw Gauntlet at my CQB weapon plus a sackload of mines and frags... Bring it on!!!
