You don't say, but I assume you have found Vault 92 (Agatha sends you to Vault Tec to locate it). When you enter the vault, go through the door on the left and head to the sound testing room, down some stairs.

I picked up my copy of Fallout 3 the other day. Haven't loaded it up just yet -- I somehow managed to get stuck in a BG2 loop --but I'm dying to know how people are liking the game.

I'm not sure my computer can handle it, and if I need a new video card this is the perfect time of year to start dropping hints.

Hagatha, you are going to love it. It is the best game of the year. If you like a wide open landscape to explore with a new discovery over the hill, it fits the bill. I am getting close to the end of the game and don't want it to end.

Hagatha, I think you will like it. Your playing style is similar to mine. I didn't like it at first but I'm completely won over by now. It is a HUGE gameworld with lots to explore.

Pokey, thanks for the tip. I have been to that place but haven't found the violin. I'll go back again with a fine toothed comb. I'm near the end of the game, too. But I've decided to abandon the main quest until I find every single bobblehead and "found" and explored every single location.

Rowan, I had a hard time finding the room too.

Click to reveal..
I think you make a couple right turns after going through the left door in the first room. When you go down some stairs, you are almost there. Look for a room with some chairs and music stands.

That's a hard one to find.

Click to reveal..
Go directly west of Casey Smith's garage, the center of the next block on the map. You should find a red rusty barrel that is radioactive. Look near it and find some banners hanging over a boulder. Inside, it is next to a body.


Did you find the one in the National guard Depot? I looked all over but think I missed an area.

Pokey, I did find the one in the Nat. Guard Depot. Sorry that the following spoiler is a bit vague:
Click to reveal..
Soon after you enter the National Guard Depot you will come across a door that needs to be opened from the other side. The bobblehead is not very far behind this door. It is almost impossible to describe the path to it. All I know is that I dropped down various holes in the floor until I ended up behind the area. To open this door from the other side you first have to activate either a lever or a computer before the door begins to flash signalling that you can open it. You will have to drop down in front of the door.
I spent a very long time in this place before I found myself in the right position. I sell bobbleheads for stubborness. lol

I still can't find the Unarmed bobblehead.
Click to reveal..
In the square to the west of the garage there are no barrels and no flags. I've been over every inch of that square. The only dead bodies are the ones I've killed.
I've been to 2 other walkthrough sites and each gives a different location for this particular bobblehead. I hope it isn't a random location.

Rowan, try this:

Click to reveal..
From the back of the garage, head one mark to the left of the NW direction to a clump of trees on a small hill. You can see them from the garage. Just past the trees, turn on your local map and Rockopolis should show up. There is a barrel in front of the opening. The banners are hard to see. Go up to the boulder under the banners and put your curser on it.The last time I checked, the barrel wasn't radioactive and had a fire with some friendly ghouls near it.


I have 9 bobbleheads now.

It was. I walked all the way to the edge of the map looking for it. I finally saw the banners from above. Don't forget to use the local map at times. So how many bobbleheads do you have? Which one are you going for next? Maybe we can cooperate on the search.

I have only one left: the lockpick one. I don't really need it for its skill points as I am already at 100 for that. However, I will look for it just to make my collection and display case complete.

I still have a lot of "undiscovered" places to explore.

The game settings are pretty flexible. It will analyze your system and give you a baseline with which to start.

Hm, after finishing it I can concude it was a good game. Nothing outstanding, and definitely not in the same league as its predecessors but a fun post-apocalyptic game.

I'm going to explore everything before I do the main quest too, but I'll have to be carefull not to mess it up. I love the tension of exploring and crazy things you find.

I've been playing since it came out and just finished my first Quest (other than the get out of the vault ones and get a house one) it was the Survivile Guide one...boy was that long and I got to go lots of different places. I just put my copy of the guide on the desk upstairs in my house...it looks great. Be sure and take it out of your pip-girl and look at it. I put a pencil next to it and a wad of pre-war money. Oh a box of Potatoe Crisps for munching.

The other thing I've done is arrange a shelve in the kitchen with lunchboxes so I can see the front, back and all the sides...they are all different.

I'm starting the sad scared little boy and fire ants Quest next. I came accrossed him and can't wait to help out.

Well, for starters, it didn't have the same atmosphere. Which is very vague, I agree, but I never got the same feeling of immersion as I did with the first games. Also, most importantly, they removed the ability to team up with the real nasty lowlives of the wasteland and you couldn't join any factions at all. I mean, in Fallout 3 you could become a champion boxer, join any of the competing mob families of New Reno, wipe them all out, manage negotiations between Vault City and Gecko, solve the problem by just eradicating the latter, get married, blow up an outhouse with dynamite, have your ear bitten off, sell your companions to slavers, join the slavers and gather slaves for them....not to mention that the skill system was much better implemented. And the humour...I mean the special encounters where you encounter the guardian of the chasm of the abyss, Sir Arhtur's Knights, the talking head or those things...they were just absent.

It was still a very enjoyable game, but all in all it was just Oblivion with guns.

I have Fallout 2 on my laptop right now, so I might play it first, just to remember. I never did finish it, having trouble with the combat. But that was a long time and many games ago, and I might find it easier now.

Of course I'm still playing Thief 2 FM's, and I have my umpteenth game of BG2 on the go as well. So many games, so little time.

Drizzt, you can team up with individuals in Fallout 3 - some of them scumbags. You can also do some of the other things you mentioned, but they're just executed differently to prior Fallout games it seems.

As for the whole "Oblivion with guns" stigma, all I know is that I didn't like Oblivion one bit yet I loved Fallout 3.
