I am somewhat interested in this game, but only if it runs smoothly unlike Fallout 3. I would like to hear anyone's thoughts on that. And also if they are pissed that the 360 is getting exclusive DLC from what I hear.

VoG for life!

Looks like it's just as buggy as FO3 (maybe worse?):

But they only ever referenced the 360 version in all those articles, and specifically so. Now I will have to see if I can find anything about the PS3 version. Seems weird some of those gamebreaking glitches everyone reports yet the game is still getting glowing reviews...

I'm eager to find out more about the PS3 version. I've been able to find barely any info on it aside from a screen shot comparison that I'm not sure is legit. http://www.gameblurb...hot-comparison/

I would wait for a patch fix first, and then wait for a Game of the Year edition. I loved Fallout 3 by the way.

Got my collector's edition from amazon this morning. The collector's edition is beautifully made. A sturdy outer box, the inside of which is velvet-like. The casino chips appear to be made out of metal and the cards are brilliantly crafted.

I've only played for about an hour and a half so far, but it seems awesome. It's basically Fallout 3 + some element of Fallout 2. You can now make medicine and stuff just like Fallout 2 (xander root + broc flower = healing powder for those of you who played Fallout 2). Runs smoothly so far, but then again I had very little problems with Fallout 3 (about 200 hours of gameplay and it only froze half a dozen times or so on me).

As for the 360 getting the DLC first, I was a little angry when that happened with the PS3 (although then, we didn't think it was coming to the PS3 at all). But now, I understand that it coming a year later is kind of a good thing since it will give me a nice break from the game and bring me back to it just as I'm itching for a Fallout 4 announcement.

This is why I rarely buy games day one. More often than not, new releases come out with bugs, which may or may not ruin the whole experience. I'd rather wait a few months and get a cheaper and less buggy yet still the same game.

Just came back from buying the game at Kmart. Once I get my strat guide in the mail (a couple of days, maybe), I'll probably start filling up the OP with more info and tips to use for the game. ;)

I just got this game from Kmart and looking forward to playing it. I really enjoyed Fallout 3 but never made it around to the DLC, so I don't care that XBOX is getting the DLC first I will probably play through this game quickly and trade it in to make money (paid $20 at Kmart). Then pick up the GOTY when it arrives next year.

Did anyone who got this from Amazon or anywhere else have it come with a slipcover?

I bought it from Kmart and it came w/a slipcover. Also talked to a friend who has played for about 5 hours and has not ran into any problems or glitches.

My Gamestop preorder copy has a slipcover.

I also got the CE guide, so I can try to answer any questions. I won't be able to actually play the game until the weekend, though.

Glad I didn't toss the slipcover, as to keep my copy complete.

Put me in the "just played 5 hours, no glitches/freezes" club. Looks slightly better than FO3, but runs the same.

It's awesome so far!

I've played for 7-8 hours. For me, the game will often hang for a second while I'm walking around, but it's just a minor annoyance. I did have it freeze once and kick me out to the XMB which is the first time I've ever seen a game kick someone back to the XMB.

I played for almost 3 hours, the only real problem I had was where it will sort of freeze for a split second every 20 seconds while you're walking. I'm not pleased with that but I'm just saying it didn't crash or do anything severe.

I played for about an hour today... Didn't really do much, just named my character (His name is Machete... and yes, he's Mexican :lol: ), and adjusted certain stats... I'm trying to get my speech, science, and lockpicking skills up early on.
I only ventured out into the Mojave Wasteland, and stopped for the night. Didn't really want to do anything until the strategy guide arrives. :)

I regret not working on my speech when making my character, it will come in handy A LOT !

Anyone know if it's safe to store items, like maybe at the doc's house? Hate selling crafting items and weapons.

All standard edition copies have a slipcover.

I don't like slipcovers that don't have any extra artwork/foil lettering vs. what's on the case cover. Just makes it annoying to take it over to get inside. This one has a little bit on the title, but nothing compared to the work someone like WB takes in the slipcovers for the DC Animated Movies for example. Or the case cover is different from the slipcover front like on Dante's Inferno, Red Dead Redemption special edition, or the Iron Man 1 Blu-Ray.

Bethesda says glitch patches are coming fairly soon across all platforms.

I have a name bug. If your name is less characters than the name Courier it will leave the remaining characters. So if your name is Stan it will add -ier to it and you will be Stanier.

It looks like what ever you type in last stays in the input screen I put in a mess of jumbled letters and now it adds what ever you typed into it adding a bunch of nonsense to my name. So now my name is something like (name)dsfjhnasdjcxzcceses.

I only have about 15hrs in but have not had any real issues except the random skip that others have. One thing I have noticed is that zones load a lot faster than FO3 this could be because I dont have 20 save files yet.

So, I'm currently about 23 hours in, and there is so much to do in this game. I constantly have at least 5 quests open.
I really like the challenges thing they added, and that some of them will give you perks when you finish them.
