Fallout 3 DLC interview

Fallout 3 DLC interview

Fallout 3 is getting a bit of downloadable content this year, and first out of three planned packs is Operation Anchorage. According to the details we got with this interview, provided by the XCN, it's planned to be released on the 6th of January. This happens to be today, but the official word is only "January" so the date might not stand. Price is 800p, and the interviews cover many aspects: new features like commanding troops, their thoughts about the reception of the game, the two upcoming packs and much more.

the third and final DLC is the one that interests me the most tbh, sounds like it'd bring the most bang for your buck as well.

^True for most Bethesda games. Shivering Isles was brilliant. I preferred that quest line more than the main one.

Looking forward to this though.

are all packs exclusive to the 360?

I think it will be like wuth Oblivion on Ps3, at the end of the year there will be game of the year edition that includes all packs.

"I’m 25 hours in and feel like I’ve hardly started…"

Thrust me, your feeling is correct. I've clocked over a 100 hours and I still have the feeling that I've hardly seen half of it.

What interests me more is: Will there be a SI type expansion (adding a complete new world) and will there be a DLC collection disc in the future? I'm not a fan of DLC, I'd rather have it on disc like they did with oblivion so if that becomes available...

Oh and: The lvl 20 cap is BS! Even BI admitted it by patching the games. I love this game but won't be buying anything until they fix that massive oversight. Oh well, I can wait...

Just can't get into it, mainly because of the repetitive environments. Could someone tell me, are there any cool, unique places to discover further into the game at all? Or is it pretty much a deja vu journey?

Too much Oblivion-like as well, I feel I've already seen everything after the first 2 hours. :(

...Thrust me...
No thanks, lol ;)


I really do hate the lvl 20 cap. It makes the Swift Learner perk and well rested 10% addition of XP a negative thing. Also the Here and Now perk was totally useless; you get to chose a perk so you choose to go to the next level to just choose yet another perk thus limiting you to 19 perks in total. It should be that you choose a perk then go to the next level and get to choose another one right then and there.

I think its sick that DLC is becoming exclusive to certain consoles. It does nothing but screw over gamers.

Oh, err....heh...

I caught that too.

It was quite erotic.

Hmmm, yeah...that's the kind of cool stuff I digg indeed. Just wish there was like massive cool indoor environments that don't look like the building you just left, or the next generic subway system or whatever.

I don't know, I might give it a go sometime again...
Commented on 2009-01-10 06:15:45
I hope The DLC is good especially the 3rd one I was pretty disappointed at the end of the game all I could do was start over or go to lasst save hopefully they willmake it so you can continue after you beat the 3rd DLC mission.

Agree completely, 20 is way too low and it's too easy to get to 20 very quickly, once you've capped out it really does detract from the enjoyment of the game, maybe it's a shallow thing but fighting some big monster and killing them is all the more rewarding when you get that kind of kerrching sound and see how much experience you just earned.......
Commented on 2009-01-14 14:08:58
Oh and a cannon is a big gun, it's "canon" he was looking for :)

A few things:

1) Operation Anchorage looks awesome. I can't wait.

2) Other packs sound awesome. I just hope they aren't too far away.

3) I've logged about 75 hours and feel like I've merely scratched the surface.

4) lvl20 cap is one of the ballsiest moves I seen a dev take lately. It forces you to be very specific about your character tailoring. I don't think the game is meant to have a "MASTER SAVE" with a perfect character. It's meant for 40, 60, 80 hour sessions with different characters.

If you've played a large amount of this game and then started a new character, you'll find that everything about the world is subtly different this time around. That first battle you remember is now a huddling of ghouls not looking for trouble. That building you just happened to never enter is a gold mine (never entered Moriarty's cause he was outside. killed Tenpenny at first sight and gained karma for it :) )

In closing, lvl20 cap is one of my favorite things about this game. Come on! Twenty perks out of that list! How bad do you want it?!

Thanks beth.
