Busy Playing Fallout 3, Do Not Disturb

I’ve been flaking at work, school and life ever since the release of Fallout 3. I snagged the collectors edition of the game and haven’t stopped playing since. One thing I can say about the game this early on is it’s tough scrounging for ammo, especially after you’ve wasted all of it on a giant fire ant’s skull. Now in regards to leveling and building up your character, it is much easier than Fallout 1 and 2. In the previous games, you were lucky if you came out with a well-rounded character that could do a little of everything. Well, either lucky or just weak. In Fallout 3, with the adjustments to the way tagged skills work and the many skill-related perks in the game, a character can easily be half-decent at every skill in the game.

Of course, most players like to focus on one skill and become a master of it. I’m just surprised how well a “jack-of-all-trades” character works in this game. If I were to make a similar character in Fallout 1, I wouldn’t get past the first radscorpion cave. Check back for screens of the goodies that come in the collectors edition, later today.

  1. I hear you there entirely, started playing last night, with the intent to play through the game properly till I decided it was more entertaining to use the suit and fedora from the guy in Megaton and proceed to systematically clear the town. With a sledgehammer.

  2. Yep, couldn’t agree more!

    I tend to try to play a balanced character, get a few good skills up, rather than one good one, then you get to a certain level and you can just breeze through the game blasting all and sundry with your trusty A3-21 plamsa rifle.

    Got the game on PC on New Years day, played it about 3-4 hours a night solid for 4 months. Then bought a 360 just purely so I could play Fallout3 while relaxing on the sofa! My missus was none to happy losing her TV time to me blasting Raider skulls and other ne’er do wells!

    Damn you Bethesda! Damn you to heck! I am supposed to be revising for for my work exams on 2 months time! Fat chance! LOL!
