if u dont go buy it NOW.
ign gave it 9.6


anyone got this game yet?

10-30-2008, 04:46 PM
I downloaded it the other day and I felt like Bioshock meets STALKER. I didn't get far though, because right after the first part (the vault) my game became choppy. I know for certain that it's the game and not my computer.

I have a Q6600 with 4 gigs of ram and a 8800 GTS 512 and play this game at 1360x768 and it doesn't matter if I turn off eyecandy, the stuttering doesn't stop.

Anyone else have this problem?

10-30-2008, 04:49 PM
well, wait for some patches first, like with Stalker

the first two games were classic, but aren't as fun anymore, check the thread I made that explains the story

10-30-2008, 08:20 PM
I uninstalled the game now. The choppiness really messed things up and I didn't like the feel to it. Not a big fan of Oblivion either.

*gets back to playing Fifa 09*

Someone let me know when Deus Ex 3 is done.

10-30-2008, 08:32 PM
my desktop is lame.

acer ast 180 - 2 ghz. but i dumped a radeon 4800 and 3 gigabytes of memory. i haven't tried it for gaming yet. but i'm hoping it can rock this game. my base score is 4.2 because of the processor, but the graphics card is 5.9 phat.

anyone think these specs will do?

10-30-2008, 08:39 PM
Stalker 1 was my shit, but I got that after all the patches. The endings were classic. Clear Sky, I got stuck in a script error.

Imma download Fallout 3 only because I am a big fan of the series.

fallout 3 is wassup. that is a tight ass game. get it for a console if u want it to play the best

10-30-2008, 11:25 PM
Copped it on da way to work, play it when i get home :D

10-31-2008, 12:13 AM
I was just playing this. Shit is great. The VATS system doesn't make it easy at all, you miss most of the time lol.

There's this weapon 'Fat Man', which fires little nuclear bombs. You see a flash, and the nuclear mushroom, the shockwave, and the whole area gets radiated. You get radiated from drinking water from a fountain, you get radiated from swimming, you get radiated from drinking Nuka-Cola.

What people say about it switching up the style and being shit, that's not true. It's very solid and the little details like the 50's music playing on your radio make it even better.

10-31-2008, 04:30 AM
^^^^^the music and radiation are the heritage of the previous games.

I heard the game isn't as big as promised, but ok, Gothic I wasn't either, and it was dopeness

10-31-2008, 06:36 AM
the game did promise, its by far the best sandbox game in the last few years and it plays well. The reviews are crazy for this game, definitely a game of the year contender

10-31-2008, 01:58 PM
^^^^^the music and radiation are the heritage of the previous games.

Yes, I know. After all... it is Fallout 3. And the game is banging, I don't know how can anyone say it's lower than expected. Y'all must've expected a 10/10 game. This a strong 9.1(2)/10

I've seen this everywhere...really everywhere I turn I see this game.

10-31-2008, 03:49 PM
Getting this game soon once i finish fable 2..should be good. ^O^

10-31-2008, 06:08 PM
deadspace is dirtier than blackula's fithy cunt as well.

11-01-2008, 02:53 AM
This game is crazy as fuck man. I accidentally shot those kid in the head, town went wild yo.

11-01-2008, 06:19 AM
lol the moral choices you can do in the game is crazy.

11-02-2008, 10:24 AM
gonna buy it tomorrow. played it at my friends house and it was CRAZY.

11-02-2008, 12:16 PM
any views on whether the console version is better than the pc?

i've read some bitching about crashing on the cumputer.

dling this bitch now. i hope it works on my weak 2.2 1 core cumputer wit da radeon 4800 - probably have to buy a new processor to play this mother.

11-02-2008, 12:20 PM
if u played Oblivion and it worked fine, this game will work fine too

11-03-2008, 12:08 AM
Every console has complaints about it. PC, 360 and PS3.

I got Ps3, put in like 10 hours and no problems at all.

11-07-2008, 08:13 PM
Finally got it running smoothly on my rig. I'm 12 hours into the game now and I must say, it's pretty damn awesome.

I got it but havne't opened it yet, still playing Saint's Row 2, Fable 2 and Gears of War 2. I got the collector's edition of all these games, the bobble head is cool, and I l ike the bullett shaped flash drive that came with Saint's 2. also the Spartan Armor for Fable 2 is coo

11-10-2008, 12:56 PM
I played it for a while on PC, think I'm at level 6. My hardware ain't nothing special, but it's running smoothly. My only problem with the game is that I need more ammo, always... And I want to be able to carry more..

The game's awsome, it's been a long time since I played any compy-games, but this was welcome.

02-19-2009, 04:48 PM
fucking amazing game. picked it up yesterday...

one thing i have to say though... when you use the VATS to shoot someone(raiders) in the face when they are swinging with a baseball bat, do they still have the energy to keep hitting you?

a bullet to the face would fuck me up.

02-19-2009, 05:15 PM
^forget that.

i think i missed the point that its an RPG and not a FPS. obviously i need to level up etc...

still... sick game.

02-19-2009, 05:52 PM
I can only play this game in short bursts it seems. I'm 50 hrs into the game and the longer I play the more it fucks up, shame really

02-19-2009, 05:55 PM
forget this post.... this game is actually fucking brilliant!

once you level up enough, and have a big arsenal; its a legendary game.


02-19-2009, 06:53 PM
All i've been playing lately. I love the fact that you can spend days just exploring and shit. There's always something to do. I plan on getting dead space soon too.

02-20-2009, 12:33 PM
a quote from someone on gamespot...

The owner of the bed I want to sleep in is DEAD. His whole town and faction is dead. I murdered everyone. I've stolen every item in the town bit by bit and sold it off. I even stole all the tin cans. I dragged all the corpses into a big pile in the middle of town, and then I set them on fire.

But my character has qualms about sleeping in someone else's bed.


02-20-2009, 01:16 PM
^ hahaha

I got this and I'm still kind of getting into it, but I need to play it longer and level up more to fully enjoy it I think. I been busy playing other games like the new GTA (which is sick btw). I went to go play this today but my fuckin Xbox got the 3 red lights AGAIN. Xbox 360s are ill but the reliability is just ridiculous lol

02-20-2009, 02:02 PM
Fallout 3 is the G.O.A.T, lol

I'm really love'n this shit though, can't get enough of it. Plus more DLC for 360 users coming soon.

02-20-2009, 03:50 PM
has anyone completed it yet?... im only 13 hours in, but ive heard that once you complete the story you have to start again?

once you complete, do you HAVE to save? can you just bail out and carry on from where you was before, to finish every other mission first... or what?

02-20-2009, 06:17 PM
Yeah, I completed it before. The PS3 version takes you back to the start screen but one of the DLC for the game lets you carry on

02-20-2009, 06:37 PM
is that download available on ps3...?

02-20-2009, 06:41 PM
360 exclusive, hopefully Bethesda do the same thing they done with Oblivion and release it all on one disc at a later date but they haven't announced anything yet

Mumm Ra
02-20-2009, 08:24 PM
I beat it once as a good guy
right now I'm going through it a second time as an evil bitch, level 17
just foolin around and don't play it very often anymore though

02-21-2009, 02:57 PM
26 hours into this and ive just realised you can use weapon hotkeys... lol!

02-22-2009, 04:10 AM
the trophy patch was laaate. i already done everything in the game THEN they release a patch, so i started all over agen....and that nuka cola challenge quest is da longest shit ever, so cba

02-22-2009, 07:37 AM
The nuka cola quest is long and annoying but it gets you one of the schematics to the best grenade in the game

02-22-2009, 08:01 AM
ye that sierra bitch told me bout that. Lol that guy living next to her wants to bang her.

02-22-2009, 12:02 PM
what nuka cola quest? i just done the slave quest... got all the slaves there, earned 1,000 caps... then killed all the guards lol and set them free...

i was drunk last night and played it, my follower paladin died.. and i think ive made enemies with a few towns lol!

02-22-2009, 01:51 PM
you get da nuka cola quest when you travel SOUTH WEST, its near the edge of the map.
And the guy tells you a location of a mutant behemoth :0

02-22-2009, 01:53 PM
This quest

The towns calm down after a few in game days

02-22-2009, 01:55 PM
anyone tried out the railway rifle?

02-22-2009, 06:38 PM
I just made it. It's pretty handy for crippling limbs but the dart gun does a much better job

02-23-2009, 12:51 PM
the headshots make the heads stick to walls wid da railway rifle :o

dart gun is sik but took me ages to find out what the fuck it actually does

02-23-2009, 01:05 PM
That Shishkabob is cool for melee.

02-23-2009, 01:08 PM
^yeah i got the shishkebab... cant remember where i found it though..

02-23-2009, 01:20 PM
the headshots make the heads stick to walls wid da railway rifle :o

lol I didn't know it done that

That Shishkabob is cool for melee.

The Shiskebab is pretty fun, looks cool too

I've only gotta make the rock it launcher now and I can trade the game in

02-23-2009, 08:13 PM
i borrowed iot from my roomate for my ps3.....it damn near bricked my fucking console...the hour i played was dope tho. id get it for my pc if my pc diddnt suck

02-24-2009, 12:06 AM
lol now Fawkes is follwing me... what a legend.

im not gonna check this thread in fear of spoilers lol... i dont want fawkes to die via the story... that would be gay... i guess he will die in battle though, more than likely.

02-24-2009, 12:09 AM
wtf after i just leveled up... paladin cross just retuned to the citadel? i thought the bitch died on me?

02-24-2009, 08:13 AM
She's been following me for a while. I've leveled up a bunch since she joined.

02-24-2009, 10:45 AM
wtf after i just leveled up... paladin cross just retuned to the citadel? i thought the bitch died on me?

You must have done something to make your karma go down. The only decent followers are Fawkes, Dogmeat and Charon imo

02-24-2009, 11:35 AM
Fawkes is good for combat BUT he blocks me when i wake up from sleep in my house in megaton...

02-24-2009, 12:47 PM
^i sleep in the superduper mart. got that robot guarding it lol

02-24-2009, 12:55 PM
You not got the Megaton house yet?

02-24-2009, 01:01 PM
havent bothered going back there since the beg of the game? why, whats so special about it?

02-24-2009, 01:08 PM
It's handy for storage, you get a robot butler who gives you purified water [which helps for positive karma] and you gain extra EXP when you sleep in the bed

02-24-2009, 01:23 PM
ohhhhhhhhhh.... looks like im going back to magaton then. yeah i gave the dude outside the city(boat) with the bridge(cant remember name) about 10 purified water... just before paladin cross came back. its a good infinite karma source... i heard about the dude in megaton, but i never bothered going back.

thanks for the heads up!

02-24-2009, 02:26 PM
You can get a suite in tepenny tower as well, but you gotta arm the bomb so it screws up your karma

02-24-2009, 05:52 PM
i fucked up everyone in tenpenny tower when i was getting a slave from there.... hopefully they wont be pissed when i go back there

02-24-2009, 06:36 PM
WTF... i just accidentily completed the game. great.

02-24-2009, 06:50 PM
fuck this game. i got 42 hours out of it... i cant go back. i saved inside the purifier room.

i didnt get the dog, i didnt get the megaton room, i didnt get shit.

people have got like 150hours outn of this game... i got 42.... this game is fucked up.

i think its time to snap the disk and throw it at bethesda.

02-25-2009, 11:40 AM
lol i feel the same way (kind of)

i played the shit out of this game and THEN they release trophies. I played it through twice.

yo wutage the second playthrough will be amazing trust me...i thought itl be shit at first but knowing where everything is and how to use weopons will make the game better second time round. You need to get dogmeat though
