Looks pretty good, better than the previous DLC at least. I'd rather have the DLC on PS3 though due to the 360s HDD being total arse.

Looks interesting. I heard this is supposed to be longer than the first two dlc. I'll consider it if it isn't more expensive than the others. Raising that level cap would be nice!

I envy you for the mods, but I bet you're not playing on a 60" widescreen display :P

This expansion will raise the level cap to 30. And according to Bethesda, it will be quite a struggle to get there. Furthermore, the pricing will be 800 pts, indicating that this expansion will not be quite as expansive as Shivering Isles.

Level caps have been raised to 30.

New perks have been added.

The core mission is ~6 hours long (longer than the campaign in The Pitt DLC).

Tons of new side missions have been added, including one that allows Dogmeat resurrection.

New locations have also been added like Presidential Tunnels under the White House or Adam's Air Force Base.

New weapons and armor are also along for the ride.

Broken Steel picks up two weeks after the end of Fallout 3, in a somewhat changed DC wasteland where you have to deal with the consequences of your actions from Fallout 3.


FIXES TO ORIGINAL FALLOUT 3 CAMPAIGN
The end of the main campaign from Fallout 3 has been . . . dismantled. I won't spoil it for those who have yet to actually beat Fallout 3, but let's just say the changes represent the Raison d'être to buy the Broken Steel DLC, even if you have not completed Fallout 3 yet.

Since Borken Steel dismantles the main quest endgame to Fallout 3, Broken Steel itself will not be the new ending . . . currently, Bethesda is leaving the "ending", wide open.


800 points ($10 USD).

I wish it was on the PS3 myself. Maybe a "Game of the Year" Edition at the end of this year? Wouldn't hold my breath on it however.

he is probably not,but he can,and the diference is that is better to play on a 20" screen with 1680x1050 real time rendered res,than on a 60"widescreen with upscaled res.

Except that it isnt. Even on my crappy 42 inch plasma with 1024x764 (Yes you read that right) games look better than on my 20 inch LCD monitor for my PC at much higher resolutions.
Dont ask me why, games just always looks better on tv's. Maby my Samsung is some wierd miracle-plasma at that fucked up resolution, but games still look better there than on my pc monitor w higher resolutions.
I dunno why. Maby its because tv's have a tendency to soften the image, while computer monitors are utterly sterile and harsh.

i guess he means it is a pretty poxy size (the standard 20gig...scratch that, 12 gig) when i comes to DLC.

the standard 360 isnt really great for all this DLC content. i have no demo's, about 6 arcade games and 2 sets of DLC (lost and damned and shivering isles) and i only have about a gig left. sure you can buy a 120 gig HDD seperately...but they're rediculiusly priced. for the price they sell them i'd at least expect 500 gig.

Can't wait for this!! And yes, I agree on the 360 HDD, the 120GB is way too expensive (although I did buy one because I ran out of space and there's no point in picking up a 60GB when the 120 comes with the transfer kit).

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus @Seth: if anything the enemy zombies rest to be seen if they are as good as seen on Resi2. Nothing gave it away. I dount it is, as its more a action game than the previous title. (7 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth I thought character models, lip syncing etc are nice step up as well. [url] (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog not to say it looks bad, it doesn't. it just doesn't look as nice as REmake 2 to me. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: the enviroments look a lot more empty. i don't know if it's because of the emphasis on racoon streets or what. but it just doesn't look as polished. lip syncing and facial capture looks off too (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Seth: Yeah, looks on par to me. Probably even better if I'm honest. (2 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth what i find a bit disappointing is Resistance MP (legit look terrible) replacing Mercenaries mode. (2 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth looks as good as RE2 in motion. What is rushed about? I could bet RE3 is going to be one of the most polished AAA games this year. (2 Days ago)
