Can someone explain this whole Windows Gaming Live thing?  I signed up, but I can't load a game unless I sign into Live first.  Why?  Are my saves stored on a server somewhere?  I can't play unless I sign in or start over?  As usual, I'm probably missing something obvious here so I thank you in advance for any helpful info.

It's xbox live... you get achievements... I um... I think that's it.

Yeah, that's pretty much it. Not a big deal, and you're not missing much, Arnir, unless you have an Xbox 360 and like to add up achievement points on that. It can be a fun 'side game' trying to get as many achievements as possible, but other than that, it's no big deal. I wouldn't even bother with it if you don't have a 360, or don't care about achievements.
Thanks, folks.  I went to the official boards and learned about the same - but also how to move the Live saves to the other folder so that I could use them without logging in.  I just don't like the warning that the system gives you saying that there will be no autosaves unless you are logged in, etc.  The whole thing just seems to be a little bit slimy to scare a person into Microsoft's "service."  If I wanted an Xbox, I would have an Xbox.

My Fallout 3 Special Edition hardcover strat guide arrived today.

In a word:  awesome  thumbsup  thumbsup

I do not exaggerate when I say that this is the best strat guide I've ever seen, for any game.

500 pages!

a GIANT foldout map of the entire game - and the map is 2 foot by 3 foot in size, and is printed on both front & back. EVERYthing is marked, and there's a text list of all points of the map. It must be seen to be believed.

Some selling points on the included flyer:

* Multiple tactics and tips for every main, miscellaneous, and freeform quest, including exhaustive notes on every single activity you can attempt, anywhere in the gameicon_eek

* Flowcharts and every major Karmic choice detail exactly where your decisions lead. Plus: all you need to know about completing all endings.

* Over 100 maps showing every area in the game.

* every major ammo & health cache, bobblehead, skill book, unique weapon, weapon schematic, mini-nuke & more!

* expert tactical device on utilizing VATS combat techniques, how best to allocate S.P.E.C.I.A.L. abilities, plus which skills to pick as your adventure progresses.

* examples of creating different types of characters, from heavy weapon specialists, to stealthy lockpicking pros.

The guide goes over everything in great detail. I've been loving reading up on every perk, every stat, and all the character building info, and how the different aspects relate to each other. It's really helped me peg just where I want to put points, and which perks I want.

The guide retails for $35, and Amazon is selling it for $20.99, which is an absolute steal.

Let me know if you have any questions on it.

+1 to this.  got mine the other day (thank god for faster than average 3 day shipping) and it was immediately useful as i went back and changed a few things in the intro and remade my stats.  i also got out much better prepared this time around.  i have really only used it for the character building stuff at this point and seeing what the area i was exploring may have had after i left it.  being a hardback book also helps it lay flat on the side table i have when i play.  the sheer volume of stuff in this guide makes me very happy about the game's longevity.

How do I view the front of my character. When I rotate the camera my character turns with it so I keep seeing his back.

PC: Hold F and rotate camera
360: Hold LB

Thank you.

Tip if you've linked XBL profile to your game:

for some reason my game is refusing to connect to XBL, so I couldn't access my save games.  So, I started up a new game, saved it and copied my XBL profile save game files to where it was saving my non-XBL related save files and managed to load up everything fine.

So, I've now put in close to 22 hours into my game, and I think I'll finally be starting the 'main quest'. I've hit level 10, have all of Moria's 'book' done except for the very last part (which I'll be doing first), and I've accidentally stumbled upon the second 'step' of the main quest (finding where Dad went) without doing the first.

Time to start the game proper. biggrin

Im tinking of re rolling my guy. I can only do 2 sots in VATS witht he 10mm pistol then have to wait on it to recarge. That seems patetic.

EDIT: In character creation what stats are safe to lower to get more free points? Im thinking carisma because I dont care if people like me..ill just soot their face off smile and Luck because the way the game is made tere can not be any rare encounters like there was in  the first 2 games..unless you encounter stuff in fast travel mode.

i took a long read through of the stats/skills and perks before deciding to reload and respec.  makes a world of difference instead of just rolling up what sounds good. 

this is what i took.  luck is still at 5 because of it's effect on critical hits and my focus on sm weapons potentially making later fights harder due to less damage

I picked up the last Collector's Edition at a Best Buy near my office at lunch today. Clearly you don't need another photo of the CE, but maybe I'll post one of the bobblehead when I get home.  icon_cool

Even if the game doesn't end up suiting me (we'll see soon enough), who can resist a bobblehead and a metal lunchbox?  smile

Oh yeah, also recommend the CE of the guidebook, the paper and overall quality just feels so nice.

Well, I turned off my Windows Sidebar and it took care of that flickering graphic glitch. I'm loving the game so far, but I have two minor gripes:

1. The NPCs are so lifeless. frown If you compare Fallout 3 to Mass Effect, it's like you are talking to robots. The voice acting is pretty good, but the NPCs' facial expressions (or lack thereof) don't quite match up.

2. When you strip down a corpse of its armor, the magical undershirt and boxers is a little jarring from the game. It's just kind of weird that some Raider would be wearing this stuff under their armor.  ninja

I think the only thingthats worried me is I keep reading where it says coose your weapon skill and stick with it. In the other Fallouts I used small arms till I got igher lvlthen I switced over to energy weapons. Id like to do that here but Im worried it wont work out well later. Will I have enough perks / skills for it? Also if I raise my stat for te small arms at character creation that might mean the one for energy  is not igh enough later.

FWIW, the strategy guide specifically advocates picking a primary weapon to start with but allocating points to a secondary weapon for to help pick up the burden in the second half of the game.

I went and capped my Small Arms (caps at 100 no matter if it's a Tag skill or not), and now I'm trying to decide which I want for my secondary weapon. I'm guessing energy (lighter weapons overall), but the damage boost of missiles and such would be nice...

Small Arms seems to be really nice though. Remember that it also affects the damage of your Rifles, Sniper weapons, and Shotguns. Bandits and the like carry LOTS of ammo for those weapons.

FYI - you holster your weapon by holding down the reload button (on the PC version at least).

And as I said somewhere on GT - Repair is a VERY useful skill that's practically a must have.

I went off the Prima recommendations, and went with:

Small Arms
Repair
Sneak

Str- 4
Per- 8 (7+1) (ballcap gives +1)
End-5
Cha-4
Int- 7
Agi- 8
Luc-5

I wanted Int for skill points on level, Agi at 8 gives me lots of AP's, and high perception gives bonuses to other important things.

Loving this build so far.

Although every review I've read is rave, complaints about NPC animations and the third-person view animations seem consistent. I'll probably have to play in 3rd person to avoid motion sickness, so hopefully I can live with that. I don't really understand why Bethesda would cut corners on the animations unless doing better ones simply took up more disc space than they could justify.

Ugh, I'd youtube some third person videos or something before buying.  Short of just doing an occasional pan around to see what your character looks like, the third person viewpoint is IMO quite hideous.

Actually we find a heavy bias towards 3rd person view with European players.  I have no idea why.  But with Oblivion a lot of them stuck with it, and I consider Oblivion's 3rd person to be literally unplayable.  For Fallout, I think if you zoom it in it works pretty well.

I have YET to find a good energy weapon. I explore quite a bit too. I stopped sinking points into that very quick. I got a laser rifle and even that thing is laughable. I got a custom made 10mm gun last night when my partner met an untimely end at the hand of a robot. that thing is pretty good.

I'm wondering how melee fairs, did anyone make a full fledged melee guy? i'm thinking of trying it next time. But I have a very good feeling super mutants will just slaughter you.

I woudlnt recommend lowering starts way down.

Charisma affects how much you sell things for so you will be broke if you lower it too much.

Luck affects your critical chance +1 crit % added to the base crit chance and gives you a +1 to all skills per point of luck

Intelligence give you +1 skill point per point of intel added to the base of 10 so 5 intel = 15 skill points per level, there is a perk that gives +3 skill points per level worth taking I think if you take it as soon as you can.

I am a smooth talking, small arms wielding wanderer.

Tag skills are speech, small arms, repair.

Starting stats were if I remember correctly:

S - 2
P - 6
E - 2
C - 6
I - 9
A - 6
L - 4

I think that is right...so starting out was a bit rough...I couldn't carry much at all and had to make lots of trips back to town, but I have since been able to raise my strength to a whopping 3 so that helps some.  I am now level 10 and while fights are tough, if I ever get the chance to talk I can usually talk my way out of things.

Anyone know if I buy a boxed copy in Europe (specifically France), if there are several language choices for the install (specifically English)? I know some major games do this (because many people prefer playing the English version), and I wondered if the French package would let me play in my native English?

The Direct2Drive and Steam option looks out ftm, with my lack of reliable internet and strange country restrictions.

i am amazed that people still use mouse pads. i had my bobble head resting on my speakers, but it kept falling off in a loud thump that would happen at bad times in the game causing me to look around frantically for a guy shootin a missile at me or something. now it sits on top of ds game cases. its about an inch too big to be set in front of my lcd

OK, so three times now have I jumped out of my seat after running into a hissing feral ghoul hidden around a corner. Goddamn those things get on my nerves.

My impression after probably putting 20+ hours into it: very worthy Fallout successor. I didn't like Oblivion all that much, but kudos to Bethesda for making this game so awesome. VATS is great and gives that 'every shot counts' feeling. Animations in slow motion are just so awesome... reloading the hunting rifle, seeing your guy pull the trigger on any of his guns... I'm impressed with the amount of detail found in this game. The world itself also feels great, and it is as if every single item or piece of debris was put there with a purpose. It all adds up to a great experience. The first two Fallouts are my favorite games of all time, and Fallout 3 does not disappoint.

Has anyone found any bobbleheads ingame yet?

Yeah, I'm pretty bummed about it as well.  The Ranger quest armor is arguably as good or better unless, as you say, you are an unarmed or melee oriented character.  According to the strat guide there is only one armor that's better than the quest/PA/PA2 series.  Kind of bums me out since PA was so clearly the awesomest thing in the earlier games.

But the game as a whole continues to be brilliant.  It's just amazing how many little quests and things to do there are no matter where you go.  Today I decided to simply visit a monument that I hadn't been to so I could see what it was like, and what I found there set me off on a series of quests that took hours of gameplay that have nothing to do with the main plot.  And that's not the first time that has happened to me.  I'm probably 30+ hours into this game with huge swaths of territory that I haven't even ventured into and plenty of places to go visit whenever I just feel like a break from the major quest lines.

And for bobbleheads Lord Percy,

There is one in your fathers office in Vault 101 that is, I believe, the medicine skill bobblehead. That's the only one I've noticed so far.

Here's the deal. I'm playing Warhammer Online and having a blast. That's because I'm a die-hard MMO player...

Well that is until this flippin game came along. Like most of you I've been playing F-3 continuously since it came out.
I decided yesterday to pop back into Warhammer and show some attention to my character in that game.

What a let down. Yeah I know MMO's are a totally different beast than single player games.......but the shallowness and repetitiveness of a MMO comes blasting to the forefront after playing such a well crafted game as F-3.

I did a scenario, ran a PQ..did a quest or two...and all the time couldn't stop thinking about F-3 and how I would be having more fun playing that.

Warhammer will be there long after I've finished F-3 but until then.........Fallout-3 wins my time.

The depth of this game is astounding.

son of a bitch. a bunch of my .dll randomly decided to get lost. having to reinstall the entire damn game because it randomly wiped a bunch of crap. awesome!

dude, arc, i hear ya. I was(am?) totally hooked on war but I can't stop playing fallout 3. plus it doesnt help that half the people in my guild just vanished. some due to fo3 others to who knows what. mmo's are great when there's no games, but man during this season they are bitter sweet. i wish mythic would've taken the 6 months to polish up and release in the spring when jack and shit come out for gaming.

will probably play war for a billion hours a day after fo3, but i'm already thinking of a new guy to roll  icon_lol

Im just the opposite of you two. I played FO3 to Megaton then went back to Warhammer. FO3 intimidates me. I want to reroll my character and start over but I just dont know what I want to make. And the world seems so huge. I just keep playing WAR.
