Posts Tagged ‘fallout 3 DLC’

I don’t have time to go into details (too busy discussing bad movies in the previous post) but I figured I would link to two interesting stories. Joystiq has the scoop on some new details for Fallout 3: The Pitt DLC and it sounds awesome. Sign me up for working with, instead of against, the Raiders and another set of weapons and armor. This will be released in March and I will definitely be updating as more information gets released.

Other then that, Microsoft announced the creation of their own line of retail stores. This guy could go either way. Apple seems to be the ideal here, where Microsoft probably wants to avoid the failures of Sony at all costs. Either way, another interesting move from everybody’s favorite monopoly. That’s all for now, enjoy the remainder of your Fridays!

After finishing Operation Anchorage the other day, I’m now chomping at the bits in anticipation for the rest of the downloads. I’ve been looking for details on the next installment, call The Pitt, but information is sparse to say the least. I did find myself reading an interview at Skewed and Reviewed with one the lead producer at Bethesda, Jeff Gardiner. While most of the interview was focused on Operation: Anchorage, he did have answer one question in regards to the Pitt:

JG: There are two more pieces of Downloadable Content in addition to Operation: Anchorage in the works. The next installment is entitled “The Pitt,” and will send the player to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, disguised as a slave in order to join, or usurp, a tribe of raiders that have taken over the steel yards there. The third DLC is called “Broken Steel.” This DLC will change the ending of the main quest of Fallout 3 and allow the player to continue their quest in the wasteland. It also raises the level cap to 30, add new foes, weaponry and allows the player to irrevocable alter the wasteland in profound new ways.

Nothing really new, but confirm’s the earlier rumors. He does go into some good detail about Anchorage, and the full interview is worth a read. That’s it for now, I’ll be keeping my ear to the ground though, and if I find any new information you know I’ll post it.

Note: There were some decent announcements from some major publishers yesterday, including Battlefield 1943 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2. Neither of these announcements are that exciting, but don’t forget to Pre-Order your copy of Street Fighter IV, it comes out in less then two weeks!

Busy day here at the nest, between regular Thursday woes and managing a staff of 3 (ha ha ha) I have a lot on my plate. None more important then this interview at IGN which reveals some of the details to the previously reported Fallout 3 downloadable content. There’s actually a lot of good stuff in there, which isn’t suprising considering how upfront all the development blogs were during the original production of F3. The meat of the article discusses the first DLC to be announced, Operation Anchorage.

The Chinese red army is everywhere, and the player will first have to secure the surrounding mountain side and then fight their way into the Chinese base. The player will have to use a lot of their standard combat skills, along with several new tools that will only be available in the downloadable content. These include interactive Strike Teams under the player’s command and unique armor, weapons, and other exotic gadgets.

That sounds pretty fucking fun, if you ask me. Granted I haven’t touched the game since the box went down, but you can be sure I will be slinging those Microsoft points to download this bad boy. This is also something to look forward to:

It will include new weapons, armor and achievements! It’s full of top-secret technology used by both sides during the war, which the player will of course be able to use throughout the main game as well.

Other morsels revealed about the other two DLCs: Level cap removed and you can continue playing after the game ends in the Broken Steel DLC, while the Pit DLC takes place in Pittsburgh. These are some delicious details and I for one can’t wait to get my xbox back, finish the freaking game, and then save up the 800 points to buy Operation Anchorage.

Quickly, and I just got a project to work on so I can’t go into detail, but check out Game On’s article about how Spore was the #1 pirated game in 2008. Of course, Spore is the game that only allowed you to install it on five computers, so the debate rages on and the piracy issue just got a little more fuel to the fire. There are some interesting points in the article though, and should prove to be a good read if you are at all interested in the piracy issues of our little industry here.

That’s all for now, I have to get back to the grind…
