Makes sense, due to copyright issues I could see them renaming it for FO3 and FNV

It doesn't appear in FO3.

In Fallout 1 & 2 it's named "Plasma Pistol", and the description box (every item in FO1 & 2 had a rather humorous written description) said that is was made by Glock. The FO3 & NV Plasma pistol is a different model, but the Glock reappears as "Plasma Defender" in NV.

Why yes, I may have finished FO 1 & 2 about... dunno... six million times? :lol:

Nothing wrong with that :lol: , though I admit I only played FO1 once or twice, FO2 a few more times.

The first time I beat the game I went with an NCR ending .

Last night after completing all of the DLC and a few random left over quests , I went for the Yes Man ending for a grand total of over 155 hours of play time . :shock:

Stuff like that is a reason I contemplate throwing out my Xbox. Sure entertainment is necessary but couldn't I have been doing something fun and beneficial? Now if you excuse me I must slaughter a raider camp, dismember the bodies, drag them all into a massive pile and then light it maniacally with a flamethrower pretending that the fire won't go out in a couple seconds.

I just got this game for Xbox 360. It was the first thing I picked up when buying the console. I hate being behind everyone but my computer wouldn't have ran it right and I have been very poor. Now to just dive into the addiction as many of you once did.

Am I the only one who was disappointed with Dead Money? It's like SAW in Fallout...

You're not. It was... unimpressive.

No kidding. With each character, I have to decide if it's worth it to play Dead Money to get the automatic rifle. So far the answer is always a resounding "NO".

That said, I LOVE the Gun Runners Arsenal. I still haven't gotten Lonesome Road or Old World Blues.

For the PC is this an addon or a standalone version?

It's another DLC offered by steam (and I'm assuming others)

2, especially. I had a security job once that let me bring a laptop to work.


Big mistake on their part. I played FO2 and Close Combat 3 all night for $15/hr. It was awesome.
