I do want to play this game so badly. I will rent it, because I refuse to buy it for 60, then fall in love with the game and can't get any extra DLC. Also, I don't like the fact that it "supposedly" not up to par with the 360 version. But I see here, most people saying it looks good, so I'll rent it, and probably buy it later on.

I've watched a friend play it on his 360 and I have it on my PS3 and we both agree that they look almost identical. The only thing I've noticed is the "pause" when friends log on or off, but other than that theres nothing I can tell. I bet you'd have to see them playing side by side to even notice anything, and even then...

I'm loving it so far...had to start over a few times just to get my character the way I wanted; thank God for the auto-save right before leaving the vault (where you can change your character around before its stuck for good).

I'm very surprised there are only 2 pages of posts here! I really want to get this but I don't know that I'll have the time to play it. I logged like 130 hours into Oblivion (and I hear this game is even better!)

Yeah, thats a known bug. Seems that you dont get a test if you start the fight with Butch...if you dont fight Butch you get the test. The work around is saving right there and restarting the game.

I had a few freezes last night (one where I had a guy right in my grill and I was trying to VATS head shot him and another when firing the FatBoy indoors).

Does anyone know if the PS3 version will get DLC that is different then the exlsusive Microsoft DLC? Or is DLC exclusive altogether?

I'm about 25+ hours into the PS3 version and am having a blast.

I fought Butch and I got the test. Of course, he and his boys were kicking my ass and I ran away, so maybe that's why.

That is the best part of the game. Also, it is almost over. Sadly.

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.

The G.O.A.T. test, that helps you pick your tagged skills . . . some people are experiencing a bug where they don't get the test.

Awesome game with only two minor complaints. I get some major slow down at random points, or the game will simply freeze up and I will have to restart it. The only other one is the ending...

Anyway, kudos to Bethesda for another solid game. Keep 'em coming

I need to get this soon.
Sounds like the bugs, though annoying, are few and far between.

For those who've played both games...Is this game better than Oblivion? If so, I may have to try it out one of these days. ;)

I think it's better, mainly for the setting since I'm not into the fantasy/medieval-type that much. But I also found the leveling and stat bonus system easier to understand, plus you don't have to jump all over the place to strengthen agility.

In short, yes...in almost every way.

I played over 100 hours of Oblivion, but probably half that was spent leveling skills so my character didn't develop as a total weakling. In FO3, leveling is the much more traditional XP based leveling, which works a lot better, IMO.

If you didn't like Oblivion because of the expansiveness and free-roaming aspect, then FO3 probably won't suit you either, although the quests are a lot more focused and feel more varied as well.

I loved Oblivion and I'm loving this. I do like the setting of Oblivion since I'm a fan of fantasy and I like the guilds etc. I do enjoy the shooting aspect of Fallout 3 and the VATS is top notch, well esp since without it, aiming is a bitch. If Oblivion had the improvements done for Fallout 3 then I would probably like Oblivion more. Improvements include the exp system, and a lot of little things I can't recall off the top of my head.. like I dunno the key loop, ammo not affecting weight. etc etc, FO3 is amazing though.

This thread compels me to check my punctuation, grammar and spelling before posting any threads. You guys are brutal, but funny.

As for the game, I don't want it since it's some more first person crap from Bethesda.

Lol! Yes! They are brutal, yet funnierest as hell. Hey OP, ever heard of 'School House Rock' Damn!

I told myself I'd only play about two hours of it last night, but I ended up playing until 6 AM in the morning.

I jacked up my luck and got the sniper perk along with better criticals and now if I manage to stay hidden I can snipe out super mutants with VATS in one shot. Exploding super mutant heads FTW

What's everyones favorite weapon? I just got the schematics for Nuka-Grenade and those things do like 400 DAM with fairly easy-to-find ingredients
