Fallout 3

Sorry if it's a repost, but I'm seeing a lot of talk about this... thought we might centralize the discussion.

This makes me excited.

During a March 21, 2008 Official Xbox Magazine podcast interview, Todd Howard revealed that the game had expanded to nearly the same scope as Oblivion. There were 500 versions of the final cutscene, but due to recent upgrades, there are now over 10,000 different versions, which was determined by all of the actions taken by the player.

But yeah, Fallout doesn't really play like a shooter.

From what i figured out so far.

One of the first things you want to do is either make that bomb blow up that town or disarm it. Depends how you want to play this game.

You need a place to stay in either Megaton or get a deluxe apartment in the sky at Tenpenny towers to put all your stuff.

I have the bought gaming guide for it. Everything is overwhelming me so far.

OK, I'm confused by this. You're playing it on a PC with a 360 controller? How does that work?

If you have a wired controller, you can plug it into your PC.

If you're like me, and have a wireless controller, you need Microsoft's wireless receiver. You can use any wireless 360 device on the PC that way.

Do you have to program the interface, or does it do that automatically?

Most games auto-map the controls, and if the game is Games for Windows Live enabled (like Fallout 3 or Crysis), 360 controller support is native.

The only recent game that gave me a problem out of the box is NBA 2K9. Their default controller settings were atrocious, but a quick reconfiguration fixed it.

I picked up Fallout 3 and the wireless receiver. Still playing Fable, but I'll probably hook it up and test it out later tonight.

My god, i got lost in the subway station for a good 45 min. My only complaint is that you cant hardly see shit at times. I guess thats how they want it to be, but its really dark. I thought Bioshock was bad.
