That was the situation I was in when I picked up this game and I absolutely love it. It can be very addictive if you let it...at least it was for me when I first started playing. The game world is pretty massive and the downloadable content that has been released imo compliments it nicely.
Okay. Well thank you. I'll keep this in mind as I lookup stuff on it.

And then Bethesda decided to try and pull themselves out of my anger pile with Pearlmen candy talking about how awesome I was.

I have to admit that I hate that Windows live thing...I really dislike having to jump into hoops to play a game, even moreso when it's a small addition.

I don't know The Pitt and Broken Steel were pretty large as far as additions go. I'm not sure I see it being any different than buying an expansion for say Neverwinter Nights or something like that.

I've got no problems with buying them. The price isn't the problem. It's the pointless Windows live crap that I dislike and the fact that you have to buy non refundable points that I won't use in full to get them. I bought Nwn/Nwn2 expansions too but on a CD/DVD. I wouldn't mind a direct download site where I can pay with my credit card (like the Oblivion DLCs) either. Besides I need to have something to rant about

I agree about the Microsoft Points system. I knew I only wanted Operation Anchorage and Broken Steel and that I would need 1600 points to purchase both. I discovered I could buy Microsoft Points at the Zune Marketplace in 400 point increments instead of the 500 point increments listed on the Xbox Live website. I'm pleased to report that I do not have any Microsoft Points left on my account. Perhaps I'm posting this too late for D3 but I share this in the hope that it will help someone avoid having an unwanted Microsoft Points balance.

At this point I plan on waiting for the GOTY edition of Fallout 3 in October so I can have access to all Fallout 3 DLC and avoid purchasing through GFWL.

I believe they're planning on selling discs with the DLC's on them as well.

Yeah...I saw that..it's unfortunate for Fallout fans. I think that V13, Fallout Online, whatever could have been an interesting concept. Fallout is one of my favorite game worlds and being able to wander though it on a grand scale would have been fun.

Couldn't have card less either way. Fallout: New Vegas is what I'm interested in.

I remember trying Fallout 3 when it first came out. Felt the same way about it that I felt about the first two Fallouts: This game would be twice as interesting in a different setting.
But I actually just rebooted the game earlier this week with a crap-load of mods. I found a save game that dropped me right outside vault 101 so I didn't have to go through that boring exposition level again, and I'm actually having fun doing the side-quests and whatnot. I don't think I'll do the main quest, though. I didn't like it very much the first time around.

The first two (and all of the spin-off titles) were made by Interplay. The third was made by Bethesda, who now own the rights to all things Fallout.

That's why they're suing. Interplay was to develop V13 on condition that they raised enough money (around 30 million, IIRC) in two years - and Bethesda was to recieve around 10-15% of profits from the MMO.

Now, seeing as the deadline has passed, Interplay look set to lose any licensing rights to the Fallout Franchise. It must be pretty bitter for them, losing the rights to develop an MMO set in the universe that was born at Interplay.

It's more than that. Before the sale of the Fallout IP, Interplay were all but dead in the water. This looks effectively to be the death-knell.

Also, technically Black Isle, Interplay's internal developer, put together the first two Fallouts and Tactics (?). They're also renowned for, among other works, the RPG Planescape Torment which you may have heard a few people praising to high heaven around these parts.

Judging by their work progress, it doesn't look like they were really even trying to hold on to it. They didn't get Fallout 3 together, lost it. They were given a chance to make the MMO now, and they lost it big-time. Pretty much goes to show that if they don't want to do anything with the franchise other than just hog over it, they'd might as well give it up to someone more capable.

Which is exactly what happened any way.

More news, Bethesda is suing over FO1/2/Tactics sales, too.

To describe this as looking unnecessarily miserly on the part of Bethesda is perhaps unnecessary...

Well, they do have a point. A trilogy would include Fallout 3, not Fallout Tactics. >_>

Actually, it would include three Fallout games; and their argument is that the name is "confusingly similar", rather than that it's playing on expectations. In any case, the cover makes quite clear what you're getting.

^ This is hilarious! Those nitwit fan-boys over at NMA must be in an uproar right now... In an any case, Interplay's been basically defunct up to this point, may as well let other studios strip 'em bare.
