I’ve been waiting for this for what seems like forever. Forever since Oblivion, anyway. It’s like every other game between Oblivion and Fallout 3 has existed solely to pass the time. Anyway, I’ve spend five hours game-time (but actually, longer – read on) already today. That’s a lot for me. Addicted? Of course not. Honest.
I’m really, really enjoying it.
The opening sequence in the vault was brilliant. I redid a bit of the escape as I didn’t manage to save Butch’s mother first time, so my five hours is a bit longer there. Then when I made it to Megaton, I told the Sheriff about Mr Burke’s plans, he went an confronted him, and to cut a long story short, I ended up accidentally getting the Sheriff, Burke, two bystanders and Moriarty all killed. I was shocked with myself.
After about half an hour’s more play, I was overcome with grief, so reloaded an earlier save and prevented the deaths. So add *another* 45 minutes or so to that 5 hours 🙂
Then I went on Lucy West’s Sexy Quest (it isn’t sexy) and found… spoiler. But on the way, I stumbled across Vault 106, so after the Best West Test Quest Fest, I went in. Amazing! Found my first bobblehead in there (well, second really – there was one in the game box ;P) which gave me +10 Science. And now? I have no idea! So much to do! So many places to explore!
