Hello people.

I got the game Fallout 3 as many other people probably also have.. i got exactly 800 Microsoft points left, and im wondering what Add-on that might be best? (reccomended most, or something like that).. so if possible, i would like you guys to subscribe your opinion of what addon is best, maeby why, if u bother. :)

If you could only get 1: Point Lookout. Huge new map, like a whole new game. Better characters/missions. Fun shooting mutated redneck hillbillies.

If you could pickup another: Broken Steel. Lots of battling at an air force base/ missile launching platform. Increased level cap, new perks.

IMO the other DLCs sucked.

Personally I think you would get better value from buying the addon disks. That way you get two of the DLC addons for 14.99 (or thereabouts). That's the way I'm going to go when I finish off the main game in Fallout 3.

Well, i would preffer to use my Microsoft Points if possible, before using my "real" money :)

The first add-on you should get is definitely Broken Steel. It increases the level cap and makes it so the game no longer ends after the final mission (ie you can't free-roam). It's also just a damn good DLC, but the level cap + fixed ending make it essential.

id personally say get broken steel to continue your fallout 3 experiance.
then when you get some more points buy the rest.

Ah, in that case then I say go with the first DLC then (Broken Steel) as I don't think you can go wrong with what everyone else is saying. :woop:

Yeah you should get Broken Steel because of the level cap and the continued story. However I also thought Point Lookout was pretty fun.

Broken Steel is the best to go with first for the raised level cap, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't the first DLC. I have a feeling it was the third?

A good order to get them in:
1.Broken steel (Raises lv cap)
2.Anchorage (good and straight forward)
3.Point lookout (Very good)
4.Broken steel (beware of ignots)
5.Mother ship zeta (imo the worst dlc for this game)

Yep.

1) Operation Anchorage
2) The Pitt
3) Broken Steel
4) Point Lookout
5) Mothership Zeta


As for the OPs question.
Don't buy any using MS points, it's a waste of them.

You can get the GotY edition for pretty cheap now and it has all the DLC, sure it means you've used real money for it, but you will then get all the DLC and you'll have 800 MSP for something else.

Aaah, I see. Thinking about it, wasn't Operation Anchorage the first one ?

I would say Broken Steel followed by Point Lookout. Also agree Zeta is the worst-- so many holes in it, and just not fun, IMO.

Yep, or if you have a really nice friend with the GOTY version, you can borrow their second disc to install the DLC then return it to them same day, as you never need that disc again and can continue to play it off your original Fallout disc.

I was going to lend a friend my GOTY disc 2 when he got Fallout, but the crazy guy played it for about 2 hours then gave up on it! :eek:
Guess the game isn't for everyone.... :)

I'm doing Point Lookout now and it's really nice. Huge new zones!

Yeah, they're all pretty fun. I can't say I enjoyed Zeta though. They'll add a couple of hours to an already decently long game.

I would have to agree with Broekn Steel because it adds new aspects like the higer level cap. Broekn Steel was very short though and I enjoyed Point Look-Out more.

Borrow or rent the GOTY edition. Install all the DLC from disc 2. Play with your existing disc. Cheapest way to get all the DLC if you already own the game. Cheaper than buying one of the DLC alone.

Definately Broken Steel - it is the best value for money out of all the add-ons

Yep, that's what I said....

Great minds and all that! :p

I'd go for Broken Steel; it just generally has more to it, primarily it raises your max to lvl 30, but also I'd say its the longest and most challenging DLC, compared to Anchorage, which is short, linear and easy.

None of them are bad, but I'd say Mothersip Zeta should be the last DLC you should consider, unless you are bent on having those sweet alien rifles. Its repetative and dare I say...somewhat boring.

This is true. This one is very repetitive, and not a very wide variety of new weapons were added.

I think all the alien weapons were more of trophy weapons than actual legitimate tools of destruction. The serious lack of ammo and the fact that even the rifle seemed underpowered for what it was caused me to just keep them locked in a book case back in my house instead of actually ever using them. I did enjoy beating people with the stun baton, though.

I sadly never got a hold of the cyro grenade but it did seem badass.

Either Broken Steel for added plot and the level cap extension, plus the ability to actually continue after the game which the original game doesn't allow, or Operation Anchorage because it has the Chinese Stealth Suit as a reward for beating it.

Very true. I only suggested renting as well since not everyone is as lucky as me having a friend who already bought the GOTY edition. I got to borrow it, but if I couldn't have got them free, I would have paid the 3 or whatever a rental is nowadays and rented as it is far cheaper than buying the DLC on Xbox Live Marketplace.

Haha, guess again, I was in Blockbuster thinking the same just the other day.
It was like 6-8 for one game for a week rental.

I noticed that too recently! What the hell is that about? You might as well buy a game if you're going to drop that amount on a weeks rental. I can see why people use Lovefilm and services like that instead.... :eek:

Yeah, I would go for the Lovefilm thing, but I'm not interested in the pay per month thing.
If it was a pay per rent type thing I would go for it though.
