Bethesda has released a patch for the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3, now available for download. The 1.5 update brings new achievements for the upcoming Broken Steel DLC and addresses a few bug issues.
So does this remove the level cap and allow you to continue after you complete the main story line? I see no mention of it so I guess not.
Im stuck with the Ps3 version and as theres no Dlc 4 us (i was grittin my teeth when i wrote that) u would of atleast thought theyll remove the Level up cap I just couldnt c the point in continuing on with the game 1nce youve reached 20Xp so i guess even if the Dlc came out on the Ps3 version i probably wouldnt of bought it due 2 the cap I did get the Platinum trophy though so the extra achievements would possibly b worth it
The Level cap comes with the actual Broken Steel DLC released on May 5th, this is a title update in preparation for the content.
Just don't start the final mission. There problem solved.
Thanks for the feedback. Robondacob, that is exactly what I did I have a save without the last mission completed and have my character all jacked up. =) Btw: I agree with the many Sony fans angry about not getting an update. DLC is one thing but a title update/bug fix should be made for all the platforms the game is on. I still think Bethesda will do a title update for the PS3 they are probably just busy with all the DLC work right now. Or maybe these fix bugs that aren't present or needed in the PS3 version?
Bethesda is spitting in my face now. So some customers deserve better treatment, no patch for the PS3? Bethesda f$ck you!
The fixes are needed, they're just not being provided. There are definitely bugs in my PS3 version. I think it's lame to not at least fix bugs and make minor updates. Yeah, people paid $60 and that certainly does not include DLC, but it should include a properly working game.
What the hell made them decide that only certain paying customers deserve a properly working product? Were they payed not to fix bugs in the Ps3 version? Or do they just arbitrarily favor customers who bought the 360 version. I'm really getting sick of this sh!t. I pay $60, $70, or $80 for a game I want it supported, it's bad enough they're getting payed off to withhold content from Ps3 owners.
broken Steel better be good.Operation Anchorage was a disaster for me
Operation Anchorage was a big let down for me and The Pitt was just so so. I'm hoping Broken Steel can bring more of the awesome game that those failed to do.
Would love to get that level cap off so i can start getting some XP from all the hackin and killin im doin.
Beth kinda failed with the leveling in this game. Its easy to make a character that can do almost anything, so with 1 play through you leave no computer unhacked or safe unopen, they were simply too generous with the points you get from a level up. If i was forced to choose between a stealth guy or a tank type then i might play again to get the different experience. I felt like it was an amazing game, especially the game world but at the same time it felt kind of unfinished, which is sad. VATS was interesting and for me at least it did not get boring using it, but it also felt like they could have expanded on it a little too.
Even though Fallout 3's leveling system wasn't perfect, it was still much better than Oblivion's.
Y'know, it's not even the fact the PS3 isn't getting DLC that bothers me. It's the fact we don't get any patches. :/
No kidding, there are plenty of bugs that still need patching.
Yeah, I know what you mean. My only Bethesda game so far is Oblivion IV cause it was dirty cheap, but Im not buying any more games from them. The treatment they are giving to Fallout III PS3 owners is disrespectful. Its like they are cheating on ps3 gamers. Bethesda should go MS exclusive as Valve did, and cheat not more PS3 owners with incomplete and buggy games. We always can get the superior version on the PC for FREE.
ps3 left out in the cold
I know for a fact you're trolling when you say that, but it is true and it is terrible. I don't usually jump straight to the decision of buying a multiplatform game on the 360 over the PS3, but when i bought it - without a second thought i bought it for the 360 instead.
lol Xbox 360 is already almost 4 years old. PS3 is ALWAYS left out.
Bethesda was going to screw us PS3 owners over I never would have bought the damn game. They won't fool me again.
yea you will. When the next fall out or the next oblivian... or a really hot game comes out from them and everyones talkn about it... u will buy it. No doubt about it.
I sure as hell won't. And it's not because of the "Eff you" that they're giving PS3 owners (although that doesn't help), but mainly because I don't see why I should pay $60 to be a beta tester. I mean.....seriously.....the game pauses whenever a PS3 notification pops up? Really? How the hell did that pass QA? Less than 20 minutes into the game, I have to restart the whole damn thing because of the GOAT test glitch? I can understand some of the later glitches and bugs and whatnot.....the game is so big, that you seriously can't test for every single situation.....but 20 minutes into the goddamn game? In a situation that's unavoidable and everyone who plays your game will see? Is that supposed to be funny? So, yeah, they can stick their next game up their asses until I'm sure that it works and I'm able to buy it for $40 or less. And when I do buy it, I'll make certain I buy it used....and I normally don't do that.
I guess the people testing the game have no friends.. =/
Don't pretend you know me dude...I never bought the first Oblivion so why would I buy the next one? I was thinking about buying Oblivion since it's dirt cheap but the lack of support for the PS3 version of Fallout 3 has left a bad taste in my mouth. If Beth won't support my PS3 with patches & DLC then I won't support them...plain & simple.
Bethesda never promised continued support for the PS3, only PC and 360. Just like DE and 2k never promised the extra PS3 Bioshock content to the 360. Get over it or get a PC or 360, because it's pretty clear the PS3 isn't getting this anytime soon, if at all.
Jason 360, it isn't so much about the extra content, more so how terrible the performance of the PS3 version is, with all the glitches and such.
I didn't know Betheseda promised anything to anyone. I read the PS3 Fallout reviews and it looked like a great game to pick up (and it was). I won't get over it just 'cause you're telling me to either & I also wouldn't waste 10 bucks on a 360. A good gaming PC? Maybe. Bethesda should just go 360 exclusive & get it overwith. F**K 'em.
It's really not Bethesda's fault. You choose to buy the most expensive, most unpopular console....with 250 less games, and worse game performance. :/ At least you have http://blogs.pcworld.com/st...
I would loveeee if Bethesda went exclusive.. That would mean the games would be that much better! :) And, besides, it's not like other companies don't fix their games. Granted, Beth, should fix BOTH versions of the game.. But, they are not, so quit whining, the game is still good.
"Less than 20 minutes into the game, I have to restart the whole damn thing because of the GOAT test glitch? I can understand some of the later glitches and bugs and whatnot.....the game is so big, that you seriously can't test for every single situation.....but 20 minutes into the goddamn game? In a situation that's unavoidable and everyone who plays your game will see? Is that supposed to be funny?" I can't get over this. When I got to that part, I thought the logic part of my brain fried out because it didn't even cross my mind that such an embarassing glitch could make it into a finished product. It's the beginning of the game, everyone has to play through it and you have to at least reload your game to pass it. The Google search was funny though: "Why can't I sit at the desk for the GOAT test? Fallout 3" lol
No more PS3 support, not cool. Remind me next time if I ever buy a Bethesda game again it will be cheap and second hand.
They want to be money whores, fine then just keep it off the PS3 if it will not be supported 100%. Sold out their fans for the cash. Nice. Only way companies really learn a lesson is a hit to the wallet by not supporting their products which are not supported all the way. Also @Kurylo3d, not everyone is a game addict and can't control themselves from supporting a company that screws them over.
all of the sudden sony leg humpers are acting as if they weren't warned... remember, "We do not care about DLC... we have LBP and KIll Zone 2"???? Well... it's all relative... Microsoft make sure the xbox 360 and the PC get special treatment by covering the cost. If Sony would to contact Bethesda and tell them... here is a few millions why don't you make some PS3 DLC.... do you think they wouldn't? not only that...but wouldn't make sense for this paid by Sony DLC to be benefit the xbox 360? how nice ehh? Microsoft pays for the DLC and Sony PS3 should get it and even make royalties for something they did not pay for? riiiiigghhhthtt... It's that simple... if Microsoft wouldn't have pay for DLC content like Fallout, GTA and others... they would simply not exist... blame Sony for not investing on something you want. @EDIT: funny how pathetic losers like SWANN and other sony brain dead leg humpers go direct to personal insult mode... when they can't find anything to counter the facts some of us show. This proves my point. Sony leg humpers have $h!t for brain...
You should keep your mouth closed before I stretch you out fill your mouth with your father's fesis, damn Xbot!
This is a patch...A "PATCH". Not "DLC". And If I pay $60.00 for a game, I better get the game along with fixes along with the same treatment as the others who payed $60.00. Right Now I don't see how this is fare for PS3 Owners. Please correct me if I am Wrong.
Before this dlc came out PS3 fans were like "we have Killzone 2, we don't care". Now it's like "boycott Bethesda" and "f**k Fallout 3" or "Why won't they bring this to the PS3?" or "do they hate money" and "they are pissing on thier fans". I never seen so many Sony fans cry and whine so much about dlc. What funny is when you look back Sony/Blu fans said "dlc would never take off and digital content is still years away". I guess that digital content I downloaded onto my 120bg HDD must have traveled back through time and uploaded itself.
Gonna wait till it the games hits the bargain bin at 10 bucks. Thats how much the game is worth IMO. They can keep the DLC.
...tell me WHY you hate the video game industry! EDIT: I'm starting to wonder if Sony should consider suing Bethesda and/or Microsoft over this BS! I have to think they COULD because I'm doubting that MS would keep PATCHES off the other system (if they did, good lord would we ever see a effin' riot, which is why I included MS in the first sentence). Conspiracy to sabotage the competitor's system, perhaps. The way THIS is going, I would think there would be something Sony COULD do about this. DLC is one thing, but not getting patches is just plain wrong, especially when you KNOW the version needs them.
Actually, I don't believe Sony could do anything.. Bethesda did not break any contracts or anything of that nature. And, it is not required for them to release any patches at all. It just sucks that Bethesda are to stupid to support it's PS3 fans.
Bethesda said it was going to bring DLC to the 360 and not the PS3. That made me think "which one will get more support" and the answer was clear. So I got it for the 360 and, at the time, got LBP for my PS3. So either I've got more brains than most of the people b*tching in here or they don't care which would have been better
@caff Nobody is complaining for "TEH DLCzzz", we are talking here about simple things like patch a damnn bug that wasnt supposed to be there in first palce. Patches have been released on 360, why not the PS3 as well? Bethesda software is clearly a non-friendly developer for PS3 owners. Reminder for Bethesda suckers, 2009 is not 2006, PS3 platform is not, by any means, lacking high quality software, indeed we need to be very wise choosing our games. So with this kind of "support" I hope their sales drop a lot on the PS3 format.
Jason u dont know what ur talking about yea we might of lost the DLC For Fallout 3 but this is about the Fix patch that fixes The Bugs out in the game and Achievements for the New DLC which is fair enough BUT. Our problem is in the UK we pay nearly £50 - £60 depends what store u go 2 for a game that has way more Bugs then the 360 version and yet US ps3 owners are not getting Fook all from Bethesda about our Bug fixes why should we buy the game if there not releasing patches for our FallOut 3 and left in the cold
