Fallout 3: Game Of The Year Edition Download PC Version For Free – Gaming Beasts
Bethesda appear to have nailed it. Even the part of this game before you come to the surface, with its wrecked Eastern seaboard, sounds like a slice of RPG genius.
Said seaboard includes a wrecked Washington DC, a place called Rivet City built inside the rotting hulk of an aircraft carrier and smaller places primed for nonexistence, such as the town of Megaton with its worshipped, unexploded nuclear bomb.
To intensify the claustrophobic feeling within Vault , where your people have lived in confinement since the bombs began, the game begins at your birth, then fades in and out of your childhood. What’s more, every time you’ll be subtly nudged into making vital decisions usually played out on a character-creation screen, and learning the way the game works.
At birth, your father played by Liam Neeson will analyse your DNA and you’ll choose stuff like gender and ethnicity; on your 16th birthday, you’ll take your G. It all leads up to the age of 19, when dad mysteriously disappears, the fabled rolling door is opened and you emerge clad in a familiar blue boiler suit under the glare of an unfamiliar sun. The game is causing the expected grumbling in the Fallout community, but for my part 1 certainly didn’t expect so many of the hallmarks of Fallouts gameplay to be returning.
The gore remains. A robust ‘karma’ morality system remains. The PipBoy remains, now in its model, with familiar quest and record-management duties. Most interestingly, though, the action points formerly found in Fallout’s turn-based combat remain – now twisted and used in combat that’s halfway between stop-sart shootage and realtime.
You can blast away from your FPS or over-the-shoulder viewpoint, but also freeze the skirmish and spend your action points by choosing different body parts to fire at – each with a certain percentage chance of success.
It’s still Fallout, but a Fallout adapted to better suit our tastes and times. We re meeting up with Bethesda next issue to ask whether adult themes of sex and drugs, dogs called Dogmeat and a parade of glorious brown will also be making a return.
In the meantime, the bomb has dropped, and I’m sat atop it hollering with joy. I Intended, Upon leaving Vault , to strike out west in true pioneer spirit To begin with, I wasn’t interested in Megaton and I wasn’t interested in hunting down my errant father – I just wanted to push Fallout 3 as far as it would go.
Sadly west wasn’t on the menu Vault backs onto a mountain so with the less catchy epithet of “Go northeast, young man” ringing in my ears I set off on a post-nuclear hike to see what I could see. An hour later I was standing on a jut of highway sticking its nose over the lip of a nearby hill, a bombed-out town in the Bethesda district of Washington DC.
I’d come up to peek inside a truck balanced precariously over a 50 metre drop, but stopped to admire the view. To the south the half-dried up Potomac River meandered past the remnants of the capital, where I could just make out the Washington Monument Everything was brooding under an atomic sky while cheery ’50s music discussing the prospect of “seeing my sweetheart again” was piped from my wristmounted Pip-Boy.
In my entire five hours of playing Fallout 3, this was the highlight. You see, my first reaction to playing Fallout 3 was how empty it felt There are wandering monsters and pockets of Raiders here and there – but the feeling of stalking through a barren wasteland is like no other.
Bereft of the immersionsapping load times of STALKER when moving between zones and the near-constant wolf and bandit attacks of Oblivion, this game is draped with a feeling of solitude. Sure, the tranquillity of my Route vantage point would soon be lost when my attempt to negotiate the descent resulted in a 50 metre fall but, in its early stages at least Fallout 3 does have that vital feeling of being alone on a brutal and vast frontier.
Of course, this chance to capture some me-time has to be balanced with the frequency at which you could be blowing dogs’ heads off and seeing their brains rolling around. As such, even in the wilderness, violence is never all that far away.
Cleverly, your UI’s compass marks out areas of interest but never gives a clue as to what they are, nor how far away they lie. You simply know that if you keep on walking in a certain direction at some point you will find something, maybe hidden, that will be entertaining. Obviously you are not alone. Slavers roam the wastes recruiting strays, Super Mutants wage war with human forces, ostracised sentient ghouls live in an area of Washington known as Underworld and the unorganised Raiders occupy many of the wrecked buildings you come across.
Meanwhile, the Brotherhood of Steel – they of big guns and power armour – return as the world’s Knights Templar, forever at odds with the ruling faction, the Enclave. Last seen at the close of Fallout 2 when their oil rig HQ blew up consigning them to the watery depths, 36 years on the Enclave’s political powergrubbers are very much part of the firmament With the Washington landscape to play with, Bethesda clearly couldn’t resist having the faux-American government return – now led by President John Henry Eden, ably voiced by Malcolm McDowell.
Eden’s voice resonates through the wasteland much as Wallace Breen’s did through City 17, whether on a looped Enclave radio station or through propaganda-delivering eye-bots that roam the barren landscape. His stem barks and calls for Enclave-led unity are punctuated by teeth-grinding patriotic music, leaving no doubt as to who the antagonist of the piece is. With Eden operating out of a mysterious HQ and the Brotherhood of Steel making their home in the remains of the Pentagon, the DC landscape is going to get fairly bloody.
Is Fallout 3 Oblivion with guns? No, not really. While it’s true that when you enter houses and watch people go about their business it instantly smacks of the last rendition of The Elder Scrolls, it seems that the old Fallout sensibilities and mannerisms are here as foundation not lip gloss.
Character S. L stats luck, perception, etc return as the base numbers for your character, for example. These can be boosted and drained by the full host of addictive stimulants present in the first games, such as strengthharbouring Buffout, the more traditional narcotic of Jet the factory for which was technically destroyed in the earlier games, if I’m pedantic , intelligence-boosting Mentats and rage-infusing Psycho. On top of these lie your skills the numbers you can raise each time you level up, making you better at bartering, small guns, medicine, repair and the like , three of which you can specialise in and gain double the advance when it’s gratz-time.
While we’re on levelling, it’s important to underline that Fallout does address one of Oblivion’s biggest foibles: the fact that as you levelled up, the entire world levelled up with you. In the wasteland, as in the original Fallout games, the further you stray the more dangerous things get – as I discovered during my lonesome trudge into the glorious northeast and was increasingly battered by the mole rats, bloatflies and Raider bases I came across.
However, enemies that lie along the plotline will be levelled to match you so that the difficulty curve is kept to Bethesda’s heel. Whereas Oblivion hid away many of its stats, or at least let you batter away in mindless ignorance, in Fallout Bethesda have pulled the link between player experience and player statistics closer to Black Isle’s model.
As in the original games, your skill specialisations not only give you options in conversation my medical bent would later lead a doctor to confide a patient’s medical history to me, for example , or show themselves concretely in percentage strike-probabilities during V. Having played the game for only five hours, and with many of the hang-ups people had with Oblivion only becoming apparent after 50,I can’t be definitive about this – but in terms of building a modern game on the systems of one that’s now 10 years old, it’s hard to think of how Fallout 3 could have been tied closer to what has gone before.
Before launching into a discussion of Fallout J’s combat perhaps we should take on an isolated moment of mindless violence as a case study. When I finally rocked up at the gates of Megaton after my lengthy sojourn in the north-east I may have seen a lot but I wasn’t the most tooled-up road warrior the apocalypse had ever seen.
In my journey so far I had come across the rusted, water-filled underground hulk of Vault , stared at a bearded trader jabbering insanely about “the great one” and a “green mountain” before he collapsed on the spot and I had ferreted around a burnt-out school shooting punks and collecting charred books.
What I certainly didn’t have was many decent armaments apart from a purloined sniper rifle with no ammo, a crap hunting rifle, a dodgy Chinese pistol and a machine-gun that was gradually breaking down, becoming increasingly ineffective.
At this point I didn’t know I could cannibalise parts from weapons I picked up and use my repair skills to fix my guns. I had been, what we call in the business, somewhat ofanoob.
So it was with great joy, then, that I met Crazy Wolfgang and his Travelling Junk Store – a man willing to barter with me for a shotgun one of my favourite Fallout weapons. Sadly, my ploy of wandering around radioactive Washington poking things hadn’t been all that lucrative so far – and I can only imagine that outside of the bartering screen my offerings of pool cues, burnt books and pistol ammo was roundly sneered at by Herr Wolfgang.
It was at this point that I decided to kill him with a grenade. I watched Wolfgang and his guard wander off, away from the guarded gates of Megaton. Wolfgang turned towards me and frantically began to slap at his legs to find the offending article, but , unfortunately had become a shower of body parts before it was discovered.
Those expecting a succession of run-of-the-mill ‘go here, fight these men or monsters, kill this particular man or monster, bring sorflething back’ Oblivion-type missions may well be in for a pleasant surprise too.
Fallout 3s missions – perhaps with thought being given to the originals’ over-arching quests like “find the water chip” – are more long-running and convoluted than in Bethesda’s previous works.
One character in Megaton the first hub town you’re directed to, whose interior is like some multi-layered, nightmare vision of the Swiss Family Robinson’s treehouse wants you to find her family, and points you in the general direction of far distant Arefu. Once there, before you know it that same quest has morphed into a tale of a local populace beset by a group of Brahmin-killers called The Family, and the missing characters are revealed to be in any one of three locationfrso you’re off on a chain of subquests that could take hours to complete.
To add subtlety and texture, meanwhile, smaller quests aren’t flagged up in your Pip-Boy. Leo Stahl, son of a local family who own one of the two Megaton bars has a drug problem and hangs around the water treatment plant at night snorting Jet – as you discover either through sharing an affinity with medicine with the local doctor, or by hacking into the Stahls’ computer at night and reading their personal logs, while simultaneously opening up their safe and stealing all their worldly goods.
Then, when found, you can gabble at him that you’re a drug fiend too and you want to buy off him, or you can very patiently explain how his vices are upsetting his family and persuade him to give up his nighttime pursuits. The dialogue and voice-acting throughout seems fine – good even. You shouldn’t go in expecting the reams and reams of dialogue that could present itself in Fallout of old, but you should expect the same variation, number of replies and tone.
Can I vouch for it being better, worse or “Argh! So much worse! No, as I haven’t met enough people or delved deep enough into their characters sorry, nma-falloutcom but I can scientifically state that both acting and dialogue are at least a bazillion times better than Oblivion’s.
They can put that one on the posters. Although there’s a woman called Moira who sends you off to research her book by stealing food from the Super Duper Mart and disarming mines who does sound a mite irritating.
Fears then? Well enemy battle chatter in the build I played was a bit duff, but is apparently up for a spot of re-recording, and you do have to suspend disbelief from the rooftops to believe the fact that no bugger had fixed an armed nuclear bomb in the century or so before a spunky 19 year-old and a packet of Mentats appeared on the scene. My biggest raised eyebrow probably swings around the token of appreciation given to you by the Megaton populace if you decide to save their necks.
You essentially get a house, complete with Wadsworth the robot butler who can cut your hair and a place to store your foraged Vault Boy miniatures. You can then customise said shack in a variety of different styles through the local store – with themes like Raider, Science, Pre-war and Love Machine to choose from.
To me, this seems incongruous to the post-apocalyptic setting – it may have worked in the prosperous boroughs of Cyrodiil, but you honestly feel that in Fallout you shouldn’t be able to order in much more than a rusty bucket and a blanket. Away from all the technical combat palaver and the frothing one-way debates over authenticity though, my enduring memory of Fallout 3 is simply exploring the wasteland.
This is a very different game, a very special game, and one simply cannot wait to I contaminate myself with come Autumn. In the original game you could hoodwink him into joining your party by wearing his master’s leather jacket – but now it seems you find him in a junkyard facing off against some bandits, and can then heal and tame him. As well as having a new best friend to fight alongside, you’ll also be able to send him off to forage for ammo and pick-me-ups while you’re snorting Jet on a ruined sidewalk.
What’s plain to see in these screens is how similar Bethesda’s world looks to that of Black Isle’s – notably on display in the design of ghouls and in the gun models. Here he is – Dogmeat is back and fully trainable, although there’s no word of whether he’ll level up alongside you or gain extra abilities.
Fans of nerdlore will recognise that this shot echoes the final scene of Fallout – when the exiled hero walks back out to the wastes, spurned by his own people. This scene is your 10th birthday. As well as enabling you to customise your character, a young Amata – the Vault Overseer’s daughter and probable future love interest -will be eating too much jelly, while the Mr Handy robot will hilariously mess up cutting the cake.
And note the red buttons at its base – they carry the same sheen and design as those in the first games. A worry for Fallout 3 is just how involved the dialogue will be, with the chat shown here being of an Oblivion standard, rather than a Fallout. Bethesda better have hired in a good director for the voice talent to boot. This chap looks like Fallout’s Harold the Ghoul, even if he doesn’t have a tree growing out of his head.
Maybe another sign of Bethesda’s standpoint on art design. The question is, if you can blast bits off thundering great mutants, can they do the same to you? Still, imagine this slow-motion scene coming after you’ve selected a risky shot in a paused combat sequence – satisfaction is not the word. What weapon you were using We made our reputation by doing big and crazy – things people hadn’t tried before.
We feel that we’ve gotten good at it now. The same will be true of Fallout 3, when you’re out in the wastes. You could be walking along and there’ll be a diner off to the side, you’ll wonder what’s over there – and it’ll turn out to be a Raider base and there’s mutated bodies hanging from the ceiling,” explains Hines. If you want to play the game hardcore, you can sit and wait and watch these guys over a period of time and figure out what their schedule is – go in while they’re out or when they’re sleeping.
The start of the game though, as it was with Oblivion, will be inherently linear -although perhaps not in the temporal sense. There’s probably no need to bore you with the way the action cuts in and out of various events of your childhood, nor with the fact that many of your perks, stats and abilities will be selected at various points within this.
So let’s just cut to the meat and reveal that when you’re born, a left-click of your mouse will make you cry. And then, when you’re a year old and escaping from your wire-fence playpen, the same button will make your character say stuff like, “Dadda! As soon as you’re out in the wilderness in your late teens, everything opens up before you – the landmass is smaller than that in Oblivion, but Bethesda insist that it won’t necessarily feel that way.
The idea is that being forced to travel around on foot, with no real idea of what direction stuff lies in, will force you to appreciate your immediate environs more – as well as give you a strong sense of exploration. Much as in the original Fallout games, where you’d only be told settlements were vaguely to the south or were completely unmarked. This ‘less is more’ ethic extends to NPCs as well, having a more limited number of wordier tykes milling around, rather than the hundreds of three-line conversation ‘tell me rumours!
In the new scenes on show in Pete Hines’ presentation, the improvement was marked – when bickering with a childhood bully there are at least six or seven different retorts to your foe, for example. We’re also promised that there are at least 60 voice actors and that the more recognisable ones from Oblivion ‘You have my ear, citizen!
When they talk to each other they can do it by name,” he explains. They understand that this person is someone they have a certain sort of relationship with, and so they can talk about a certain set of things. When the player sees that it’s more realistic. The more we can do to make characters believable when you walk past them, the better. What of Dogmeat though? We touched on him last issue, but now his full range of capabilities has been laid bare. You talk to him as if he were a real person – no doubt causing a few raised eyebrows in the wastes – and can tell him to help out in combat, scavenge the vicinity for food, weaponry or stims a which could take him up to two in-game hours if hard pressed or simply to head back to the entrance to Vault and wait for you there.
He won’t level up or learn anything new “He’s just a dog,” says Hines but if he dies then he’s dead J for good – and you won’t meet any other muscular, English-comprehending canines either.
Dogmeat’s a one-off. I’ve A Confession to make: I never played the original Fallout games. There’s no real reason why, they just passed me by somehow.
I really can’t answer that question satisfactorily. So I wasn’t one of the people fearing the integrity of Fallout 3, especially as I liked Oblivion more than Moirowincl you can spit on the floor and call me names now. However, I haven’t been ‘grabbed’ at all by this one. For this I am going to show you the complete features of this game below:.
If you want to play this wonderful game on your system you should first meet the game required system requirements. So, first, check below the complete system requirements.
