For future reference for people playing this game, there are a lot of side quests available by exploring the surrounding area you're in at towns and places around Megaton. Wait until around level 7 or 8 to continue the main story quest where you go to the Galaxy News Radio to talk to Three Dog. I didn't know this my first playthrough a long time ago, and gave up on the game, thinking it was too hard.
its decent but New vegas is probably better. quest wise. exploration wise FO3 is better.
FWE & WMK adds a number of things New vegas had and FO3 Is lacking.
although FWE also adds 20th century guns which includes the lewis mk2 machinegun, which....is not a balanced gun. maybe it was fixed in a later version. --- If the next one is called, because of his MO, the underwear bomber, you'll know I'm on to something. Calvin Trillin June 16, 2006.
I think the number one thing new F3 PC players need to know is: If you are running a quad-core CPU, google "Fallout 3 quad core fix". It'll save you a headache and this board from having yet another "Why is F3 crashing so much?" topic. --- http://i415.photobucket.com/albums/pp236/Xatrion/cowbell.jpg Shut your BF28/9 sound hole and listen up.
