Its a "downloadable content pack" for Fallout 3 where you can now play in Pittsburg instead of just Washington DC.

Well that is likely because everyone in the world thinks everyone that plays Fallout 3 plays it on Xbox 360. Those points are the virtual dollars used to "buy" downloads on Microsoft Xbox Live. For the PC, this looks to be the link:

I can't get to Bethsoft.com to read any official info about it, because the Barracuda eats that URL. :lol:

800 points is £6.99....or equivilent to your currency. You can buy them via the LIVE program you insatlled with the game.

I usually figure the pound is 2x 1USD but that changes often! That's weird if its that expensive. The Oblivion mods were only like $2 each when they came out. But these Fallout ones seem to be a lot bigger.

Oblivion, aka Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, also has an expansion pack which was originally available separately. It is called Shivering Isles. The extra disc may be the additional mods, like Horse Armor, etc. If the box says it comes with those things, then its the right one. Make sure to check for updates once you get it installed.

I really loved how HL2 looked when I got it. I was certainly surprised. It ran pretty well for me also. I'm sure you'll like it. I didn't like CS too much, too many kids shooting toilets at you. Oh, wait... :wacko:

I'm still waiting for the price to come down. Must still be a good seller since its still about $40 around here. Probably can find it cheaper online tho. I can't play it yet (still) so I haven't bothered looking.

I've been wondering if I should buy this game? Is it worth buying or not? I'm kinda in a 50-50 right now. I can't make up my mind if I should spend the money.

Signature removed because it was in violation of Rules 4a and 13.

All Oblivion comparisons aside, you should probably enjoy the game if your familiar with the first two Fallouts.

Depending of what system your buying it for, I would go with the "Game of the Year Edition". Whoever mentioned the $40 price tag was most likely looking at the originally released game, without any of the mod/expansion additions.

I was at "the store" yesterday and they didn't even have Fallout 3 for PC. Only the expansion. The expansion, which was only 2 parts, was $20. This is for physical media now. They are at 3 or 4 by now. IMO if you already have the game, buy the DLC from Bethesda, it will probably be cheaper.

But like I said before, I haven't played Fallout 3 yet. I only know that the $12 I spent on the Oblivion DLC was way cheaper than any physical media at the store. Plus, Bethesda accepts Paypal and GameStop doesn't. :lol:

(I bought my copy of Fallout 3 when it originally released.)

Ooo Maybe I'll pick it up next week then. That would be easier I think. So the PC is cheaper? really? It has more benefits than the other versions. Obviously the fact you can mod it or get third-party mods for it.

Cheaper or not, I'd like a PC game anyways. Some exceptions like I'd rather play a baseball game on a console, but not a hockey game or a FPS. Also I like the modding ability for a PC game as well. If my computer was good enough to play GTA San Andreas when it came out, I would have gotten it for that instead of PS2.
