    Ah yes I can hardly wait for 100 mega+ patch that will add the achievements for it and not fix a god damn thing.


    EDIT:

    Oh yes, forgot to add, fuck all the people that can't play. Can't wait.

    Not a diehard Fallout fan or anything, but isn't the content of this DLC a little...strange?

    Fallout 1 & 2 had a few references to UFOs and alien intelligences scattered throughout...mostly as jokes or neat little easter eggs. This new patchspansion looks to be taking those little tidbits and running full on with them.

    Of the whole DLC lot, this one interests me the least. Aliens in Fallout are just...eh.

    Christ... even on board an alien spaceship, everything still has that awful green haze.

    deadly shadows is too blue, fallout is too green, gears of war is too brown


    I watched Oh Brother Where Art Thou the other day and I was all "way to fucking go overboard with the sepia, cohens!"

    is that one of those quake mods?

    Maybe there will be more Alien Ammo, therefore letting my OCD-having self actually USE the Firelance.

    you know in the unpatched fallout 3 game on one run through something weird concerning aliens happered at that supermarket not far from megatom, there was a trail of smoke over it, 3 bodies in bits in one of the cart storage things, a alien blaster next to a car, and 98 alien blaster cartridges scattered around the parking lot, only seen it once never seen it happen again, went to the alien spaceship crash site and got another blaster there.

    Was it the random event that gives you the Firelance?

    Yeah, when has there ever been a good game set on board a spaceship?

    Most ttlgers will like it because:

    Gameplay wise the overall experience is great as it is more of a first person shooter this time rather than a quest driven role playing action game.
    Not like Fallout 3 wasn't a shooter in the first place...

    Downloaded it, played it, hated it. Almost as bad as the first DLC, and at least Anchorage had some useful and fun loot at the end.

    Its mostly action orientated like Operation Anchorage but the setting is far more interesting and some of those voice recordings are hilarious.

    Just found the following:-
    Mothership Zeta Hi-res complete retexture mod.

    I use this modder's high res power armours, they're fantastic. I expect that this is of high quality craftsmanship as well.

    he keeps saying "cardboard walls replaced with metal ones" but they look the same to me.

    I heard it can corrupt fallout 3 making it not run and having to re-instal it.

    Other than the scripting for the 3rd quest completely breaking and thus having to resort to using the no clip console command, I've had no issues. I was able to happily continue my wandering around the Capital Wasteland afterwards.

    Protip: Save before finishing the space walk on the hull of the ship (i.e. before the quest "Among the Stars" ends and "This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough..." begins, because the events on the scripting on the Observation Deck keeps on breaking down. Also don't initiate conversation with any of the NPCs on the Observation Deck (particularly Somah and Tecorian).
    I.e. NPCs may walk into a wrong teleporter the and doors will end up unopenable, uncompleted objectives will be marked as completed, NPCs may run around madly rather than following the scripted "real-time cutscene".

    All of this leaving the only way to finish the mission via the no clip console command, tcl (aside from constantly reloading and hoping that the scripting works). Naturally console owners would be totally fucked if they didn't make earlier saves.
