The best thing about Fallout 3 DLC is how easily you can get it free.


Do tell. By PM if necessary.

I am someone who normally hates DLC, but the Fallout 3 DLC is totally worth it. I forget the names of them, but the one that continues the story from the end of the game is the best one to get.


Agree'd.

I found the DLC for Fallout 3 to be hit or miss. There were some good moments, and there were some times that I was having a hard time staying interested. It is pretty easy to get the DLC for free from it. Find somewhere you can rent / borrow / buy > return the GotY version and download it from the disc. I am curious if Fallout NV is the same way. If I were to get my hands on the Ultimate version of New Vegas, would I be able to do that same thing, or did they change the way they handled the DLC with that game?

If he's talking about what I think he's talking about:

- Go to Gamestop (or any other store that sells used games and allows returns on them)
- Buy a used copy of the Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition
- The DLC comes on a separate disc, insert that disc, and install all of the DLC
- Now that all the DLC is installed on your HDD, just return the game

Yes, you can do the same thing with the Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition.

I was thinking borrow it from someone or whatever.

However, there is an easier way that I was thinking about first...

I liked Point Lookout (the best of the bunch), The Pitt, and Broken Steel. Mothership Zeta was a complete piece of crap and I was expecting to love that one.

I played all of them except Mothership Zeta.

I liked Point Lookout because it was interesting. Also after completion you can get the Chinese Stealth Suit!

The Pitt gives you I believe the strongest melee weapon. Also you can get a scoped rifle that has a silencer. If you do this chore to get 100 ignots, you can get the good version of that weapon. It is a little weak though, even with critical. The Pitt also gives you the ability to make ammo that you may find scarce. Overall I say it was a solid 8.

Broken Steel extends the game if I recall. I think if you do not have it, the game ends early and the level cap is at 20.

I played all of them. Some are better than others, but they are all worth playing. My favorite one was Point Lookout. I actually think Point Lookout was one of the highlights of the entire game, DLC or not.

Are you talking about injecting it onto a USB and transferring it onto the Xbox? I mean, the one you found online and PAID the publisher for, of course.

Because I was under the impression that didn't work anymore for DRM DLC.
