anything i should know before screwing everything up?

It's pretty hard to nerf yourself into unplayability in this game, so just go out and enjoy yourself.

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.

Luckily, I picked it up again later.

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, not a balanced gun. maybe it was fixed in a later version.

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.
Shut your BF28/9 sound hole and listen up.
