I think cheats are very useful, but sometimes they cause glitches. Anyway, that isn't the point. If te are having trouble with the game, then te should use cheats. If you're not having trouble stop reading. If te use cheats already and are having trouble, this articolo is not for you. Here are some of the most helpful, working cheats:
•advlevel - Level up your character one level
•GetQuestCompleted - Complete current quest
•getXPfornextlevel - Gain one level
•help - lista all console commands
•modpca Y X - Add points to your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats (Y = stat type, X = amount)
•modpcs Y...

In this add-on, the Brotherhood of Steel Outcasts are trying to acquire advanced military tools, and the only way to enter the volta, vault containing these relics is da completing a military virtual reality simulation. However, none of the Outcasts have the correct computer interface (the Pip-Boy 3000) to enter the simulation, so it comes down to the Lone Wanderer to go inside and complete a simulation of the greatest battles of the Fallout universe: the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from occupying Red Chinese troops. The simulation is set during the Anchorage campaign, which occurred between June...

"It's not an action game. It's a role-playing game.", Todd Howard


Todd Howard seems to think so, but then again, Todd seems to think a lot of things. Some of them may even be true. Leaving the obvious domanda "why did the magazine file Fallout 3 under "action RPG"?" aside, let's take a look at what the presentation of this role-playing game was focused on. For example, how many dialogue screens were shown in those 10 pages? Zero. Wouldn't te think that dialogues are an important Fallout element that the presentation should have mentioned, if not focused on? Apparently not. How many quests were explained in details, mostrare the design and them moral, game-changing choices? Once again, Bethesda follows the Oblivion formula: focus on the visuals and HAWT AKSHUN, assure people that quests and dialogues are superb and awesome in seven different ways, but mostra nothing to back up these claims.

I walked into a rundown store somewhere deep in the wasteland. Gripped in my hands was a freshly stolen Submachine Gun, which I was awarded with after killing Dukov and his "girls". It's what I do. There were loads of radroaches crawling all over the place. So, just for the sport of it, I shot each and every one of them in the face. Guts splattered everywhere, and their bacteria-ridden bodies flew into the air. "Yummy," I took all of their meat and went in cerca for Nuka-Cola, o maybe some psycho.
I found an easy-locked sicuro, cassetta di sicurezza tucked away in a corner. Checking if I had some leftover bobby-pins,...

While Fallout and Fallout 2 feature turn-based combat and top-down isometric view in a 2-D engine, Fallout 3 features real-time combat and first o third person view in a 3-D engine. Fallout Tactics and the canceled furgone, van Buren featured both turn-based and real-time combat and a top-down view.
Perks and Traits have been merged. In Fallout and Fallout 2, Traits were chosen at character creation, and were commonly a combination of a powerful advantage and a potent disadvantage, where Perks were purely advantageous.
In the SPECIAL character system, the number of skills has been reduced from 18 to 13, traits have been removed and perks are selected every level instead of every 3 to 4 levels.

Not actually a fat man, which would in its own way be hilarious, the Fat Man is a "shoulder-mounted tactical nuclear catapult." In layman's terms, that means it's a hand held weapon that basically shoots nuclear bombs at people. It should certainly incinerate your target, but do be warned, there's a high possibility it will also incinerate everything around it (including your mates and possibly yourself), as well as leaving residual radiation.

The name comes from the secondo atomic bomb that was dropped on Giappone in 1945. Unsurprisingly, in the game's Japanese release, this had to be changed, with the Fat Man becoming the Nuka Launcher in the Land of the Rising Sun. In Japan, the side quest whereby te can choose to detonate the atomic bomb in the town of Megaton was also removed from the game.

A good way of stealing good weapons, chemicals, clothes and crappy Cibo in Fallout 3 without needing to hide yourself and rely on your Sneak and Lockpick skills, is da going to Rivet City's market.
Of course te will lose Karma if te steal things, but i'll explain how to alleviate that over time. Now, to steal anything publicly displayed on the stalls: Grab the object (grab it, don't press A and take it into your inventory, obviously. It's when te "levitate the object"...you know how to do that, right?) and take it to any shadowy part of the market, where your status is "hidden". There is...

In fact, many of the 360 version's Achievements will be about acquiring these different titles as te progress - getting all the Achievements is almost impossible in just one playthrough, particularly due to the nature of quests in Fallout 3.


ALMOST impossible? te mean like "it will be very hard to become the head of all Oblivion guilds" right? Anyway, the articolo insists that the game will be loaded with choices & consequences, branching quests, and other role-playing goodness, but, sadly, no examples are given. Considering Bethesda's fondness to make shit up in order to sell più copies,...

 Laser fucile
Laser Rifle
What type of weapon should te use: Small pistole o energy weapons?
Well, Energy Weapons are certainly più commonplace in the Capital Wasteland than the Small Guns. Sure, both are very easy to find, but the easiest type of weapon to find are the energy weapons, with the Laser Pistol available early on at the Super Duper Mart. Protectrons and robots are easy sources of energy weapon ammo, as well as the Enclave and Brotherhood of Steel. Energy weapons are da far most accurate, durable, and have higher criticals.
Small guns, in the other hand, are significantly più powerful. A conventional Assault...

The introductory sequence introduces the player to their character's father James, a doctor and scientist in volta, vault 101.

The cerca for James takes the character on a journey through the Wasteland, first to the nearby town of...

On July 4, 2008, Fallout 3 was refused classification da the OFLC in Australia, thus making the game illegal for sale in the country. In order for the game to be reclassified, the offending content in the Australian version of the game would have to be removed da Bethesda Softworks and the game resubmitted to the OFLC.[16] According the OFLC board report, the game was refused classification due to the "realistic visual representations of drugs and their delivery method (bringing) the 'science-fiction' drugs in line with 'real-world' drugs." Despite this, Australia's Fallout 3 was expected to...

Leonard Boyarsky, one of the creators of the original Fallout, when asked about Interplay's sale of the rights to Bethesda, detto that he felt as though "our ex-wife had sold our children that she had legal custody of," admitting that he feels very possessive of the series,[8] but also admitted that his concerns have nothing to do with Bethesda.[9] Considerable concern was also raised da some members of the series' fan community, largely concerning major changes in game play style compared to the original games and Fallout 3's similarity to Oblivion. The reaction from the press, however, was...

The Pip-Boy 3000, shown displaying the player's current skill ratings.

The game begins with the main character as a newborn, whereupon the player determines the race, the gender, and the general appearance of their character. As a one year-old baby, the infant reads a child's book titled You're SPECIAL, where the player can set the character's starting S.P.E.C.I.A.L. primary attributes: Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck. The character gains a set of Skills with base levels determined da these attributes. At age 16, the player takes...

Fallout 3 was initially under development da Black Isle Studios, a studio owned da Interplay Entertainment, under the working titolo furgone, van Buren. Interplay Entertainment closed down Black Isle Studios before the game could be completed, and the license to develop Fallout 3 was sold for a $1,175,000 minimum guaranteed advance against royalties to Bethesda Softworks, a studio primarily known as the developer of the The Elder Scrolls series.[3] Bethesda's Fallout 3 however, was developed from scratch, using neither furgone, van Buren code, nor any other materials created da Black Isle Studios. In May 2007, a playable technology demo of the canceled project was released to the public.[4]
Study on : The Maxson Family

Introduction:

Recently I’ve created a character only so that I could explore the Wasteland and discover everything there is to discover about it. I entered the Citadel, went to the Archives room and activated a terminal containing valuable information regarding the Maxson Family. On the following topics I’ll post everything I discovered about it, along with small commenti of mine. The information in this articolo contained may o may not be the same as in the volta, vault Wikipedia, although I don’t really care (and want to learn da myself about Fallout’s history)....

Bethesda stated it would be working on Fallout 3 in July 2004,[5] but principal development did not begin until after The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was completed.[6] Bethesda announced their intention to make Fallout 3 similar to the precedente two games, focusing on non-linear game play, a good story, and true "Fallout humor." Bethesda also stated the game is targeted for a rating of M for Mature, and would have the same sort of adult themes and violence that are characteristic of the Fallout series. Fallout 3 uses a version of the same Gamebryo engine as Oblivion, and was developed da the...

The Karma system is an important feature in Fallout's gameplay. A player's actions, including conversation and combat choices, affects the player's status in the game world; a player who makes good decisions is received più positively da non-player characters, and a player that makes bad decisions has the opposite reaction. Crimes can also be committed da a player, and whichever faction o group that is harmed da a crime are fully aware of the player's action in most cases. Other factions that were not affected da the crime will not be aware of it, and since a town is usually its own faction,...

The case of Broken Steel, however, seems to be an exception to the rule. Aside perhaps from Mass Effect 2's Arrival – whose effects on your Mass Effect 3 playthrough are yet to be revealed – never have I found DLC that is fundamental to my understanding of a game's overarching story. And that's got to be a good thing.

Of course, not every single game out there is long enough to justify premium post-release content. If a developer releases DLC on superiore, in alto of a game that's just way too short, I feel like I'm being ripped off, because why couldn't this content have been included in the main release?...

When I saw Fallout 3 at last year's E3 I thought it looked cool but not being one of the cult of Fallout, I viewed it with the same sort of interest that I do most games I know nothing about: Curious, but not what I would call overly excited. All this changed however, this past Tuesday when I headed downtown to check out the new build of the game that Bethesda was mostrare off.

From a training system tied to a child's development to the fifties-meets-Steampunk look of weapons, Fallout 3 may not have a solid data yet, but after seeing this build, I can honestly say I am well and truly smitten....
