"There is an optional hardcore mode, the character needs to drink water, ammo has weight, healing isn't instant etc"

So basically just like STALKER, =)

just hope hardcore mode isn't needed to platinum it.

Letros3030d ago

who gives a f about achievements anyway.

A Cupcake for Gabe3030d ago

I didn't say achievements. I said the Platinum. They are fun to brag with amongst friends. Need...? of course not. But still an awesome thing to have.

DirtyLary3030d ago

Agree with Letros.

Sad how gamers this generation need to chase carrots in order to play a game. Play the game for the love of the game, not a silly number next to your name.

though i doubt, it runs on a new or revamped engine. fallout 3 is one of my favorite games of this generation, but it's got a lot of flaws. the friendly ai is a big example of this. aside from them standing stone still and never breaking eye contact while talking to you, they seem to have no attention span when you aren't talking to them. they will see you sneaking around and say "don't do that" then turn their backs on you and let you rob them blind. i don't mind getting rich in these games by stealing everything they've ever owned, but i wish it felt just a little more real.

They should make the original (Fallout3) actually playable.

My girlfriend has clocked it and two of the expansions but the crashes and freezes are so frequent that I think she will lose patience soon.

It averages one crash every 40 or so minutes.

DarkTower8053030d ago

I believe ammo had weight in Fallout 3 as well. Very miniscule, but I think it did.

starvinbull3030d ago

No it doesn't. No ammo on Fallout3 has weight.

I love Fallout 3 and New Vegas seems a lot of fun too :)

But this got me worried:
"You are not a vault dweller but are given a Pip-Boy by someone who is one."

You can play as a Pip-Boy or some Pip-Boys out there are alive! D:

Ausir3030d ago

No, someone who is a vault dweller and thus has a Pip-Boy can give you a Pip-Boy.

Julie3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

aww no Pip-Boys to kill in V.A.T.S ? :(

hehe :)

Joke aside ty for the info!

A Cupcake for Gabe3030d ago

When you load the game, maybe it'll read your Fallout 3 file and the character you get it from is ...wait for it...."YOU"

I heard that this game has an intro like DA:O where you have a bit of a back story before you get your Pip-Boy and venture out into the western wasteland.

I'm still working on FO3, just picked up the GOTY edition and am loving it. Let's see if Harold is still alive in Vegas =)

A Cupcake for Gabe3030d ago

I hope this ties to FO3....area 51, brotherhood of steele connections, etc.....this is an amazing setting...the entire series is truly epic and immersive
