Fallout 3 was initially under development 由 Black Isle Studios, a studio owned 由 Interplay Entertainment, under the working 标题 面包车, 范 Buren. Interplay Entertainment closed down Black Isle Studios before the game could be completed, and the license to develop Fallout 3 was sold for a $1,175,000 minimum guaranteed advance against royalties to Bethesda Softworks, a studio primarily known as the developer of the The Elder Scrolls series.[3] Bethesda's Fallout 3 however, was developed from scratch, using neither 面包车, 范 Buren code, nor any other materials created 由 Black Isle Studios. In May 2007, a playable technology demo of the canceled project was released to the public.[4]

The Pip-Boy 3000, shown displaying the player's current skill ratings.

The game begins with the main character as a newborn, whereupon the player determines the race, the gender, and the general appearance of their character. As a one year-old baby, the infant reads a child's book titled You're SPECIAL, where the player can set the character's starting S.P.E.C.I.A.L. primary attributes: Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck. The character gains a set of Skills with base levels determined 由 these attributes. At age 16, the player takes...

What type of weapon should 你 use: Small 枪 或者 energy weapons?
Well, Energy Weapons are certainly 更多 commonplace in the Capital Wasteland than the Small Guns. Sure, both are very easy to find, but the easiest type of weapon to find are the energy weapons, with the Laser Pistol available early on at the Super Duper Mart. Protectrons and robots are easy sources of energy weapon ammo, as well as the Enclave and Brotherhood of Steel. Energy weapons are 由 far most accurate, durable, and have higher criticals.
Small guns, in the other hand, are significantly 更多 powerful. A conventional Assault...

I think cheats are very useful, but sometimes they cause glitches. Anyway, that isn't the point. If 你 are having trouble with the game, then 你 should use cheats. If you're not having trouble stop reading. If 你 use cheats already and are having trouble, this 文章 is not for you. Here are some of the most helpful, working cheats:
•advlevel - Level up your character one level
•GetQuestCompleted - Complete current quest
•getXPfornextlevel - Gain one level
•help - 列表 all console commands
•modpca Y X - Add points to your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats (Y = stat type, X = amount)

A good way of stealing good weapons, chemicals, clothes and crappy 食物 in Fallout 3 without needing to hide yourself and rely on your Sneak and Lockpick skills, is 由 going to Rivet City's market.
Of course 你 will lose Karma if 你 steal things, but i'll explain how to alleviate that over time. Now, to steal anything publicly displayed on the stalls: Grab the object (grab it, don't press A and take it into your inventory, obviously. It's when 你 "levitate the object"...you know how to do that, right?) and take it to any shadowy part of the market, where your status is "hidden". There is...

In fact, many of the 360 version's Achievements will be about acquiring these different titles as 你 progress - getting all the Achievements is almost impossible in just one playthrough, particularly due to the nature of quests in Fallout 3.


ALMOST impossible? 你 mean like "it will be very hard to become the head of all Oblivion guilds" right? Anyway, the 文章 insists that the game will be loaded with choices & consequences, branching quests, and other role-playing goodness, but, sadly, no examples are given. Considering Bethesda's fondness to make shit up in order to sell 更多 copies,...

Not actually a fat man, which would in its own way be hilarious, the Fat Man is a "shoulder-mounted tactical nuclear catapult." In layman's terms, that means it's a hand held weapon that basically shoots nuclear bombs at people. It should certainly incinerate your target, but do be warned, there's a high possibility it will also incinerate everything around it (including your mates and possibly yourself), as well as leaving residual radiation.

The name comes from the 秒 atomic bomb that was dropped on 日本 in 1945. Unsurprisingly, in the game's Japanese release, this had to be changed, with the Fat Man becoming the Nuka Launcher in the Land of the Rising Sun. In Japan, the side quest whereby 你 can choose to detonate the atomic bomb in the town of Megaton was also removed from the game.
Study on : The Maxson Family

Introduction:

Recently I’ve created a character only so that I could explore the Wasteland and discover everything there is to discover about it. I entered the Citadel, went to the Archives room and activated a terminal containing valuable information regarding the Maxson Family. On the following topics I’ll post everything I discovered about it, along with small 评论 of mine. The information in this 文章 contained may 或者 may not be the same as in the 拱顶, 保险库, 跳马 Wikipedia, although I don’t really care (and want to learn 由 myself about Fallout’s history)....

Bethesda stated it would be working on Fallout 3 in July 2004,[5] but principal development did not begin until after The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was completed.[6] Bethesda announced their intention to make Fallout 3 similar to the 前一个 two games, focusing on non-linear game play, a good story, and true "Fallout humor." Bethesda also stated the game is targeted for a rating of M for Mature, and would have the same sort of adult themes and violence that are characteristic of the Fallout series. Fallout 3 uses a version of the same Gamebryo engine as Oblivion, and was developed 由 the...

I walked into a rundown store somewhere deep in the wasteland. Gripped in my hands was a freshly stolen Submachine Gun, which I was awarded with after killing Dukov and his "girls". It's what I do. There were loads of radroaches crawling all over the place. So, just for the sport of it, I shot each and every one of them in the face. Guts splattered everywhere, and their bacteria-ridden bodies flew into the air. "Yummy," I took all of their meat and went in 搜索 for Nuka-Cola, 或者 maybe some psycho.
I found an easy-locked 安全 tucked away in a corner. Checking if I had some leftover bobby-pins,...

We've had a few complaints about how NMA has no impression piece up yet. But, sadly, we are not going to put up an impression piece until we've had the chance to play through the game well and proper, digested our impressions to put down some thoughts. Expect the NMA review anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks from now, and no earlier. That's not to say we're not going to editorialize, but we're in no rush (sorry).

The guy 写作 the NMA review - Vince D. Weller - happens to just have finished a kind of Let's Play thread with the first 5 days of Fallout 3 and his thoughts on it. For your enjoyment and...

When I saw Fallout 3 at last year's E3 I thought it looked cool but not being one of the cult of Fallout, I viewed it with the same sort of interest that I do most games I know nothing about: Curious, but not what I would call overly excited. All this changed however, this past Tuesday when I headed downtown to check out the new build of the game that Bethesda was 展示 off.

From a training system tied to a child's development to the fifties-meets-Steampunk look of weapons, Fallout 3 may not have a solid 日期 yet, but after seeing this build, I can honestly say I am well and truly smitten....

In this add-on, the Brotherhood of Steel Outcasts are trying to acquire advanced military tools, and the only way to enter the 拱顶, 保险库, 跳马 containing these relics is 由 completing a military virtual reality simulation. However, none of the Outcasts have the correct computer interface (the Pip-Boy 3000) to enter the simulation, so it comes down to the Lone Wanderer to go inside and complete a simulation of the greatest battles of the Fallout universe: the liberation of Anchorage, Alaska from occupying Red Chinese troops. The simulation is set during the Anchorage campaign, which occurred between June...

The introductory sequence introduces the player to their character's father James, a doctor and scientist in 拱顶, 保险库, 跳马 101. James frequently makes 评论 about the player character's deceased mother Catherine, and her 最喜爱的 Bible passage, Revelation 21:6, which speaks of "the waters of life".

The player can have a maximum party of three, consisting of the player's character, a dog named Dogmeat, and a single non-player character. Dogmeat can be killed during the game if the player misuses him 或者 places him in a severely dangerous situation and he cannot be replaced (this was changed with the introduction of Broken Steel: the level 22 "Puppies!" perk allows the player to gain a 小狗 follower if Dogmeat dies);[18][19] it is possible to not encounter Dogmeat at all depending on how the game is played.[20] One other NPC can travel with the player at any time, and in order to get another NPC to travel, the first one must be dismissed (either voluntarily 由 the player 或者 as a consequence of other events) 或者 die in combat.

The Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System, 或者 V.A.T.S., plays an important part in combat. While using V.A.T.S., real-time combat is paused, and action is played out from varying camera angles in a computer graphics version of "bullet time", creating a combat system that the Bethesda developers have described as a hybrid between turn-based and real-time combat. Various actions cost action points, limiting the actions of each combatant during a turn, and the player can target specific body areas for attacks to inflict specific injuries; head shots can be used for quick kills 或者 blinding, legs...

Bethesda Softworks started working on Fallout 3 in July 2004,[30] but principal development did not begin until after The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and its related extras and plug ins were completed.[31] Bethesda Softworks decided to make Fallout 3 similar to the 前一个 two games, focusing on non-linear gameplay, story, and black comedy. Bethesda also chose to pursue an ESRB rating of M (for mature) 由 including the adult themes, violence, and depravity characteristic of the Fallout series.

"It's not an action game. It's a role-playing game.", Todd Howard


Todd Howard seems to think so, but then again, Todd seems to think a lot of things. Some of them may even be true. Leaving the obvious 问题 "why did the magazine file Fallout 3 under "action RPG"?" aside, let's take a look at what the presentation of this role-playing game was focused on. For example, how many dialogue screens were shown in those 10 pages? Zero. Wouldn't 你 think that dialogues are an important Fallout element that the presentation should have mentioned, if not focused on? Apparently not. How many quests were explained in details, 展示 the 设计 and them moral, game-changing choices? Once again, Bethesda follows the Oblivion formula: focus on the visuals and HAWT AKSHUN, assure people that quests and dialogues are superb and awesome in seven different ways, but 显示 nothing to back up these claims.
