    I am most likely going to buy it soon. I found it on ebay for a good price. I've read the reviews and it looks pretty awesome. Anyone here own it? What do you think of it? Thanks!

    I have it on PC. The first couple of hours are fun, but I quickly got bored with having to 'talk' to all the different characters just to progress. If you lived in Australia I'd send it right to you. I'm done with it.

    I think I'm going to go ahead and pick it up for PS3 this week, but it may be a bad idea, considering that KillZone 2 will be out in a few weeks.

    I have it for PC. Don't normally play games like this (mostly a Valve fanboy, mostly) so I'm getting lost a bit :D Great game if a little slow paced.

    y'know there's a games board here.

    i have it, havent played that much.. only just got out of the vault! it seems very hard to play and find your way around, im not a very good adventurer i more like the killing thing haha. seems pretty good so far though, it will take time for me to finish it! plus a new GPU... maybe an 4870x2 or something... the 8500GT is taking a hit!

    Great game, haven't played it since school started much.

    Edit: Its funny that it got moved to the Apple Games section considering that it hasn't seen a release on the OS X platform:).

    A mate of mine got it for xbox a few months ago. He loves it. He's spent a lot of nights awake until the morning playing it.

    I got it on release date, finished it in a week (school holidays) and i sold it to some one at school for more than i bought it for. Sadly now i miss it, and so I'm looking at buying it again.

    Have it for the 360. Great game, a lot of fun. My only complaint would be the main plot: it's really good at the beginning, but it seems like halfway through the developers ran out of time so they hastily crammed the last half into an hour or so of gameplay. Still, there's loads of side quests to do, and future expansion packs promised.

    Yeah the last bit is really rushed, too easy and leaves you feeling utterly underwhelmed by the time you get the ending/s.

    The fact the game ends as soon as the main quest ends, also leaves you with the feeling that the multiple ending scenarios make no difference to the outcome, unlike a game such as Fable 2 where all your actions have repercussions after the main quest finishes.

    Overall a great game though.

    Fallout 3

    Really enjoying the game, I run it in my bootcamp partition. I'm also really looking forward to the Downloadable content. There have been rumblings that the PS3 may not DLC, but only rumors for now. XBox 360 and PC versions are slated to get it. I highly recommend the game.

    It's not rumblings or rumours, it's true.

    I have it for the PC and played it for a few hours and started to see some things I liked... But, I got distracted with The Witcher, then Mass Effect. I plan on getting back to F3 soon. It just didn't pull me in like the other mentioned games.

    Oh, Fallout. Man I love that game, i have about 100 hours on it and still want more. I own the 360 version; the first piece of downloadable content comes out tomorrow. Its called Operation: Anchorage. It's a simulation of the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from the Chinese in 2077. It will cost 800 Microsoft points ($10). I highly suggest it, it is the best game I think I have ever played. By the way, If you played Oblivion, It's a whole lot like that (on account that they were both made by Bethesda).

    like some other people....i loved playing to start...great look and the scenes of the broken cities are amazing and combats fun.....but then it got boring coz the story and plot is not strong enough and there isnt much real rp compared to movie-style games like mass effect

    also only the same ten or so enemies over and over and over and over again

    it was better than oblivion for me but similar problems

    That is 100% right, if you have a couple weeks off school (work) its great. i can play 5-8 hours and just lose track of time. Its slooowww, but then you find some real tough super mutants, and its great for like 30 mins. Then its slow again for 30, it just goes in and out like that

    THE DAMN GAME, never lets me get to Tenpenny Tower to blow up Megaton. I try to get there, follow the map (there IS NO marker to help me) and I get eaten by stupid mutant Mole Rats, get shot to death if I walk on the road, and get eaten by Wolves at night.
    So, I quit and don't play it anymore. Unless I find a useful walkthrough. Not one that says "just walk southwest". :D:D:D:D

    What the hell am I doing wrong?

    Oh yup, and I ported it to Mac with Cider ! ! ! ! !
