    Started playing the PC version last night. Got out of the vault and have started wandering around a bit. Have fought a number of battles.

    It's okay so far. Despite all the reviews saying it's not just Oblivion with guns, so far it doesn't feel that way to me. It is just Oblivion with guns. The whole mechanics of towns, stores, interaction with people, wandering the lands looks and feels the same. The VATS combat system is pretty good though, and a welcome improvement over Oblivion's combat.

    Haven't played yet. Holding my copy in my hands right now.

    Tomorrow I'm unplugging my router and closetting myself in to rock a whole day of it.

    aside from stiff character animations it's a great game. thats possibly my biggest gripe with it which says a lot about how good everything else is. I keep having to stop and jsut look around at the scenery.

    Good review!

    Looks like there won't be time til the weekend but with the days off I'm sure I can invest in a healthy start..:)

    PLaying Mass Effect now and its ok - but the quests are getting tiresome. Think I'll play that one in small doses - but I agree the immersion factor is helped by the conversation and plot and that;s whats kept me going on my incessant errand running. Sounds like Fallout 3 makes you care about the errands...

    Thats awesome

    The best thing about Fallout 3 is that some of your decisions have MAJOR consequences in the game. This is made very apparent very early on.

    thats the same reason I LOVE "The Shield". There's still ramifications from the frickin pilot playing out now in season 7!!

    It's been a long time since I've clock-watched during the workday over a video game...

    I'm predicting GOTY. They kept the spirit of the Black Isle games while updating it for this generation's console.

    Bethesda may only release a major game every couple years, but MAN, it's always worth the wait.... at least in the RPG realm (anyone remember Daggerfall, or more recently Call of Cthulhu?)...

    I'm not so sure about that.

    Gears of War 2, Resistance 2, Red Alert 3, Dead Space, Bioshock 2, Prototype...

    And that's just what's been released in the last week/coming in the next couple weeks.

    This game turned out to be amazing. It is very well done. I was a little bit skeptical at first when I saw some of the videos. There are a few annoyances and problems but overall its awesome. Cant stop playing. So many different ways you can go about doing things its unbelievable. You really have to play it a few times over because it is so easy to miss things on the first play trough.

    This game brings up a good point about how our society works. You can decapitate people in this game kill them in gross ways but when you remove the cloths of a female character you can not see her naked body instead there is a shirt on her which would of been visible before but it was clearly not there.

    Not a big issue at all at the end, its just wired that brutal violence and foul language is oke but nudity is not.

    Ya, there was that survey where parents rated nudity above "severed heads" on the offense-o-meter.

    Craziness.

    Just started last night. At an awkward save right now. Lots of baddies and no stims.

    Think I might find a way to grease the wheels past that part so I can get on with the story

    I'm watching the clock here at work thinking about playing this game, haha

    This is an important point. I often wonder why shirts appear on females after I decapitate them and remove their clothes. All that work for nothing. Fucking society.

    I blow the head off of almost everything I kill ... so I just didn't see the need for it.

    It adds a lot of gore - as one would guess - especially when shotguns and feral ghouls come into play. It also gives you a 5% bonus in damage, which isn't too bad.

    i just did - it does add gore, but the reason i took it was the +5% damage to everything...
