    Op Anchorage has some good gear but I'm not sure of the level requirement. The Pitt was kind of lame to me.

    Dunno bout the others.

    There's no sense in investing in the DLC now.. Beat the game first and if you're craving more then go for the DLC. Maybe it will even drop in price between now and then :dunno:

    Do the DLC after.

    Unless you wanna glitch and have a maxed out player with pretty much unlimited ammo then do OA first. But that would would kinda ruin the game IMO.

    I'd do the main quest first, Broken Steel for the higher level cap next, and Point Lookout last since it's probably the hardest. Do the rest in whatever order you want.

    where's your toque, eh?
    If I did it over again, I'd only do BS for the level cap raise, and PL for the backwater rifle, which is one of my favorite guns in the game. Great for sniping. I'd get it as soon as I could. :o

    get broken steel right away to break the level cap, and continue your game right after the ending (otherwise i hope you have some extra saves before the final encounter...)

    the other ones get after you finish the broken steel game.

    I'm playing a shit ton of games simulataneously at the moment (L4D2, Torchlight, Beyond Good And Evil) but I really want to start Fallout with all the DLC installed. I lost my original save though. :wtc:

    i loved the game but only bought broken steel and point lookout. Load Broken steel before you beat the game though (or if you hit the level cap)

    I might play through Fallout 3 again, such an epic game

    There's still a couple of sidequests that I never managed to complete and all the DLC that needs completing :o

    I ended up neutral somehow, last time i played :rofl:

    It's easy to be really bad but hard to be really good, I find.

    I know my way around the fallout 3 world too well now though, it might be a bit boring playing through again :hs:

    i was jesus the entire time i played but near the end i did something that caused me to go evil...i forget what it was though. is letting zombies into ten penny considered evil?

    anyway, if you want to be good again just go to megaton and pay the priest near the meteor. it only costs like 500 caps to go from evil as shit to messiah

    I dunno he was just talking shit all the time and when I donated money he was all like, "Thanks :hsugh:", then nothing else happened :rofl:

    The ghouls kill like 30 people when you let them in, so that's probably why it's considered evil :mamoru: Fucking ghoul mask is the best thing I ever had in that game

    I played a couple hours on this game, but I hate FPS fighting as crippled as this. I'm used to Halo, and this game is so clunky. Same with Oblivion. I don't mind an RPG just about exploration, but I hate trying to fight in F3 - I can never aim and weapons don't do much. I feel like I should try it again, but after Dragon Age I can't see myself enjoying a FPSRPG.
