The GOTY[edit]

I have Fallout 3 on ps3 and i've had it for about 3 years I've got just about everything and I now have the GOTY edition.I was wondering if there was any way possible I could load my regular fallout 3 file on the GOTY.

Game of the Year edition.[edit]

Does the new GotY edition have all the patches incorporated?-- 18:23, October 30, 2009 (UTC)

I don't believe so. But, shouldn't we have an article saying the differences between standard game and game of the year?Kill Maim 07:12, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

Just a question about Game of the year edition[edit]

I was just wondering if the game of the year edition has all the content included on the games actual disk, or if it is on a seperate disk? And if it is on a seperate disk, I want to know if there is any way to play the addons with out having to save them to your hard drive, see, my 360 didn't come with a hard drive so I don't have the memory space to save the addons. Superinsomniac 01:03, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

Just buy a hard drive, man, you'll be glad you did, particularly when it comes to stuff like DLC and XBLA. You can get a 20gb for ~$20 if you know where to look, though I recommend getting something bigger because 20gb HDs are really 13gb due to the system taking up a lot of it for some sort of "system purpouses." Dethtoll 05:58, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
Yes, you do need a hard drive for the game of the year edition. I got the game of the year edition hoping for the same thing, because my 20gb hard drive is almost full. The 5 DLC packs come on the second disc, and they are all relatively small files with the total being around 2.2 gbs. However, you can also play the game on disc 1 without any DLC, or install one DLC pack at a time, to save space. --Keverosh 22:32, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Time listed is wrong[edit]

In the section 'Behind the Scenes', seventh item, It says every single clock in Fallout 3 stopped at about 10:47.

The time on most clocks is actually 9:47. You can tell because the hour hand hasn't reached the number 10 yet.

Except, in Minefield (Ridgefield),

The fancy clock in the Zane house stopped at 11:16, and is hanging upside down. There is also a common white clock stopped at 9:47.
The Gillian house has two, one upside down in the kitchen stopped at 11:16, and one upstairs hanging right side up also stopped at 11:16. There is also a common white clock stopped at 9:47 in the children's room.
The Benson house also has two like the Gillian house, except the upstairs clock is tilted to the right a little.
The Gibson house doesn't have any clocks.

And, in Tranquility Lane

Houses that have a fancy clock are stopped at 11:16
If you select your Pip-Boy, you will instead see a wrist watch stopped at 2:55.

And, in Fort Independence

A Nuka-Cola clock is stopped at 5:45

If nobody has any objections, I will edit the main page in a couple days to correct the time from 10:47 to 9:47 and note that not all clocks in the game are stopped at this time.

Also, in the Statesman Hotel Mid Level, right after you enter after passing over the bridge from the hospital, there's another clock stopped at 11:16.

Add a date[edit]

In the very first paragraph, the year of the game release is missing: "It was released on October 28 in North America<...>" Those with divine ability to edit the article should add year 2008 in that line. ;) --TheBearPaw 12:18, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I've added it. -- Porter21 (talk) 12:26, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Rivet City tsunami ?[edit]

"The central hub of civilization in the ruins of the former capital is Rivet City, based in and around the remains of an aircraft carrier carried far inland and beached by a catastrophic tsunami whose waters have long since receded."

This *needs* to change, it's grossly inaccurate and from the in-game evidence actually impossible. A tsunami powerful to strand the Rivet City carrier in downtown DC would've also obliterated the surrounding area. By obliterated I mean absolutely flattened.

It's much more likely that the RC carrier acted under standing orders to use its reactors to supply DC with power, which would explain its being docked at the Washington Navy Yards. Such orders exist in our world and have been actioned by US nuclear carriers and subs in the past, precedent exists.

Hi! Hey, I know about that precedent too. That concept makes sense to me too, unless the Potomac River isn't deep enough. Is it? I know that the U.S.S. POTOMAC AG-25, formerly the U.S.C.G.C ELECTRA, and the U.S.S. SEQUOIA AG-23, and the U.S.S. MAYFLOWER PY-1, later to become the U.S.C.G. MAYFLOWER WPG-183, would be docked close enough to be used by POTUS,to be convenient enough for use before the days of Marine One. However as yachts, they were much smaller in draft than an aircraft carrier would be. But anyway, the whole tsunami concept reminds me of the movie "2012", which is only next year now as I write this. The scene with the U.S.S. JOHN F. KENNEDY CV-67,ya' know. Which my the way, to me, looked like someone had finally agreed to pay for it becoming a floating museum, or else the aircraft on the flight deck shouldn't have been able to surf all the to the White House where the wave seemed intent on finally crashing, and thus depositing the ship on it. On a side note to the side note, that scene and the scene with the fancy new type of cruise ship, seemed to me, to be foreshadowing the design of the new arks. As in how massive would the minimum size need to be, and what hull type, et cetera, would work best for the arks. Probably to demonstrate to ship lovers in the audience that might be wondering what type of surface ships might survive, since nuclear-powered submarines might be default anyway. Hey, it's 2011 now! Where's that promised "2013" TV-series?! To borrow a phrase from Peter David... "But I digress." Leo Star Dragon 1. 03:14, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

Additional Items in Japanese Censorship[edit]

So I'm currently playing through the Japanese version of Fallout 3 on the PS3, and apart from the couple of changes listed I have also found a number of other lesser known changes.

-Cannibalism perk is changed to 'Mystic Power', references to cannibalism have been removed from the description, and the pip-boy image has been altered to remove blood stains and body parts.

-No fingers for Lawbringer (possibly ears too, haven't played as Contract Killer yet) this is replaced with a scroll of paper which seems to provide proof of the guy being a bad dude, I'm assuming there is an equivalent for the Contract Killer path. 05:05, December 20, 2009 (UTC)Galan



i want to say that in Germany is Fallout 3 also censored. There is no blood anyway, the robots doesn´t explode and you can´t shoot the head off or other parts of the body. That is also notable in the part "censorship" isn´t it? Maybe anyone can edit that.


What's Germanies problem with gore anyway? If the other countries don't have a problem with it, then why? Tezzla blah blah blah 06:57, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah man Germany has some problem with rating things low. For example Call of Duty 2 is rated M. WTF? And then there's a bunch of movies that are banned there that are like barely Teen here. But then they legalize hookers. Germans are sensitive on violence I guess.-- 02:41, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

There's plenty of reasons (not really good ones, but understandable ones). I believe Wikipedia has a page on it. Australia on the other hand... my God what is up with their censorship? Dreadhand 20:36, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Ummm, FO3 in Australia went uncensored mate, just Morphine -> Med-X change. Or are you talking about Aussie censorship in general? --Johnny Trash (Talk) 02:46, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

The Germans are really, really bitchy about their image ever since we tore down the Berlin Wall. It largely has to do with the fact that they don't like to be associated with Nazis. That's why they really get sensitive about issues like violence. Especially child violence. Of course, they shoot themselves in the foot with the ego they have in the end.Shdowhunt60 15:58, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

Fallout 3 Game of The Year Edition and The New Xbox 360 Slim[edit]

You cannot install the add-ons from the second disc because the new Xbox 360 4 gig version does not regester the "Memory Unit" as a hard drive. Don't know if this is will ever be fixed during a Live update or not. You can however still download them from Xbox live. 00:54, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

End date?[edit]

Can FO3 actually end after awhile, like Fallout 2? NukaBot 22:03, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

The only way to get Fallout 3 to end is to activate the purifier without Broken Steel loaded. --Kris User Hola.jpg 22:05, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Question to addons and Goty[edit]

Hello i am german, I have been directed here by the german wiki.

I bought F3 uncut in London and my question is whether i can play on a german xbox 360 F3 english with german addons. There is a special offer in a store (broken steel, the pitt, anchorage, and point lookout for 15 €). So i want to ask, if it works together. Xbox Live is still too expensive (800 MS each). Are there downloadcodes in the Goty (40€)? Could I use the uncut main game wiht the donwloadcodes togehter? The Internet doesn´t have a concrete answer and the german wiki neither.

Touching Story[edit]

My girlfriend allways cry in the end when i choose to sacrifce my self in the good of mankind :D

... cool story bro... Gheart 00:49, November 14, 2010 (UTC) ... tell it again... --Liam1127 01:19, May 7, 2011 (UTC) ...neat trick, making your hand cry.

This isn't a forum, don't treat it as such. If you want to tell other people about how great the game is, then either make a blog post or go to a place that's more appropriate.16:00, October 28, 2011 (UTC)
