my god those Behemoths are large!

Fought one with a Fat Man nuke-launcher I grabbed in GNR Plaza... Bout killed myself with the blast radius on that thing >.<

And I've only found a single bobblehead, where are these little buggers hiding?!

Anyways, I'm off to fetch a dish for Three Dog so I can find where my dad is... Stocked up on ammo and went for an ExpHunt/Exploration/KillingSpree run. Level 7 now, almost to 8.

Fat Man FTW!

Yeah, the Behemoth's are aptly named for sure! :D I killed one with a bottlecap minefield. Him and his big feet. lol

The bobbleheads are out in the open, not hiding in buckets or in desk drawers. Usually on a shelf or a flat surface of some kind. And usually deep into a place. Like, if I do what appears to have been needed in a place, I'll not leave until I've turned the entire place upside-down. That's usually when I'll run across one and be thankful I didn't just move on without seeing everything.

I use the local maps to be sure I've highlighted an entire level. If wall is missing, I'll go there and discover a hall I didn't yet go down or room I missed on my way in.

p.s. There maaaaaay be a way to get your Fat Man to lauch EIGHT mini-nukes at once. hehehe

Aw, MAN! I just found out I can't get all the bobbleheads. I buried one earlier and can't get back to it.

At least I don't think there's some special "thing" that happens when you put them all on the display. So I'm only missing out on the extra points for that one particular skill.

Of course it was a pretty important one to get. wtg

thanks for the tips. I'm like that with all games, though (the explore the entire place before leaving). I guess I'm just not keeping my eyes wide enough open. I did grab the Medicine bobblehead from the vault when I had the chance, so thankfully I don't have to worry about that one!

A lot of words, but nothing SPOILERIFFIC.

Some observations (besides the obvious WTF in regards to the ending):

1) My radio reception stunk even after I did the thing to boost it. The voices were always clear, but the music did not improve. It was stuttery and crackly always. I assume that is a performance issue with my PC. A shame really. I would have liked to listen to more of that music while out galavanting and murdering. "The owls are the hootiest!" Oh, and the music was fine when playing on radios. But my pipboy had a short in it or something. Is that supposed to be like that? If so, it sucks. And why don't games like this and Need For Speed and others provide a way for the player to replace non-gameplay specific songs with our own? Changing up Three-Dog's playlist would have owned.

2) IMO, the Yao Guais always presented the most spectacular deaths, especially in V.A.T.S.

3) This one time? At band camp? This Deathclaw, the damned thing scared the shit outta me. So I killed it, grabbed one of its legs, and dragged it aside, exposing his naughty bits...and shot him in the taint with a railway spike. He exploded like WHOA. I don't dig getting mauled, see? Myaaaah.

4) This game needed to get more naughty. To be meeting a bunch of whores with all that money on me and never get the chance to XXXXXXXXXXXX is just wrong. That is one business that would be off the charts in post-apocolyptia. It certainly is in the novel I am writing about post-apocalyptia. But that's for another post, assuming I'll never finish the thing.

5) Note to self: Self? Don't forget to figure out how to get up there for a chin wag (assasination) with whatshisface high atop Megaton.

6) I need a job. And voice work has always interested me. So how about not giving one guy like 47 different characters to play in a single game. That wrinkly old guy was everywhere!

7) Nicest Butt in the Game goes to this one particular nameless lady Megaton settler. I've got screencaps of it. hehe help

8) I look forward to finding a way to slay the children of the Capital Wasteland. There were a few nice ones, but for the most part, I wanted to kill them in new and interesting ways. Little invincible brats!

9) With 105 days of sobriety under my belt and plans to follow those with thousands more, I found it disturbing that this game was designed so that alcohol provides the player with strength and charisma. I would think that it would cripple a person to some degree. It sure does that to me. lol Yeah, you get -1 Intelligence on the hooch, but come on.

10) Ok, ten seems enough or I'll be up all ni...oh. I have been up all night. Again. lol Friends, I humbly ask that if another game of such magnificence and wonder and fun comes along again, pleeeeease let us know! I am 2+ years LATE playing and yapping about this thing. Also, thanks for allowing me to do so here. As usual, BBA rules, and that's the bottom line. salute

I loved the artwork in this game. I grabbed this and did some wallpaperin' with it. I leave it here for anyone else who would likey. salute

If interested, I'd recommend Bethseda's other masterpiece, Morrowind, or the slightly-less, but still masterful Oblivion. Plus I know for a fact in Morrowind fixes that #4 on your list >.>. Nudity too. Decapitate people with the right blood and gore mod...

The bad thing with morrowind is that it's not sold in stores most places, since it came out almost a decade ago. Still amazing.

here's a quick (but laggy, my comp can't handle anything close to the best available GFX, so this is the best I could do) video of morrowind's starting town with my mods and graphic replacers:

On a next-gen gfx-handling computer, this would run smoothly, i swear. Read the description for the max available settings and what I'm using. It could put fallout's gfx to shame. 8000+ texture resolutions and stuff.

It's a really fun game, and arguably one of the best RPGs ever created.

Chairman Mao can back up this claim I hope help

Also, I heres a video of in-game gameplay made by a friend of mine, nice example of the game:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqsdcMY9TIM

PS. yes that is a guy falling from the sky to his death half way through the video >.>

Nice graphics, yes. But there's no way I could go from post-apocalyptia to enchanted forests, flame throwers and nuke launchers to bow and arrow. No way. lol

And your friend's video is a hoot! wtg

I popped back onto BBA1 for the first time in over a month and discovered that my MOUSE1 button is so effed now, I can't possibly be of any assistance whatsoever in ET. If I touch the button lightly, it works fine. If I apply any pressure, it stutters or doesn't work at all. And when I'm trying to mow someone down on the battlefield, I DO apply pressure on that fire button!

So I'm back in the Capital Wasteland, only this time, I'm not looking to make friends and build karma. I am horrifically slaying just about EVERYONE.
demon

But knowing how the game is played and what the possible outcomes are, I know that by killing everyone that I want, I am making my own life more difficult.

The most disturbing thing about being so evil is...it actually bothers me. Like for real bothers me. Being a jerk and slaying the innocent ain't fun at all. I guess I can remove the word "sociopath" from my resume, huh.

Was it a communications radio? Realistically, comms radios are optimized for voices to reduce bandwidth and promote voice-clarity during poor reception.

AH!! I forgot to come here and tell y'all that I found the cure for the crappy music play on the PipBoy! It took DAYS of searching various boards, I tr4ied a few suggested fixes, none worked, and one even made it worse. I found the answer at Yahoo Answers.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/maddxshow/

I installed this and it instantly fixed the issue. And after I replaced Three Dog's playlist with my own, it's like a whole new game. \m/


Yeah, I've been eyeing the DLC. That Mothership one just got released. I just love the slo-mo VATS gory deaths. That will NEVER get old. And as long as he bodies explode in a bloody waterfall of gore out in space, I'm all for getting the Mothership DLC!

Ok, I've now got the 5 DLCs (Point Lookout, Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, and Mothership Zeta). Not sure what to do next, start a new game? I gave up being all evil, might as well, right? Or should I go back to the end of my previous game before I ended it?

Also, before I get started checking out the new content, I am looking around at fallout3nexus.com and the volume of MODs for this game is staggering. They gots naked ladies, too!

MODS.

I should have known. My installation of them wasn't the easiest thing ever. Everything seemed to be going great. New weapons and ammo, armor and outfits and textures were all looking pretty sweet. Then I was inches away from leveling up to Level 3 and the freezing started.

I unloaded all the mods, and even the DLCs, and it still crashed all over the place. So I'm uninstalling and re-installing. This time I'll be CAREFUL enhancing this beast. I'll add the DLC's ONLY. Then if I can make it to Level 3 without a hitch, I'll start pimping out this ride.

I especially want to use this hot blond Kelsey as a companion. There's even a mod to make the mothership look more metallic and make the aliens' blood vessels pulsate. lol

AH! I just read that playing the game in the default location (C:\Program Files\Bethesda\Fallout 3) while running Vista will cause problems when adding all this MOD stuff. C:\Fallout 3 it is!

just to let you know when fallout 3 first came out it had lots and lots of freezing problems. The one that kept freezing me out was cause i had the klite codec pack installed on my computer something about the drivers caused fallout to lockup, so be careful about installing any new codecs for other programs as well cause its a finicky program, (just so you know the codec problems tended to occur mostly after you got outside the vault as it tried to render the landscape as you went from area to area as well as when you tried to use vats) I think one of the updates fixed this but if your using a mod based on an older code it might still be affected.
