Another Fallout 3 rant...move on if you're not interested. I recently got my first MS console, the COD MW2 LE Xbox 360. Along with that I've purchased a new copy of FO3 GOTY as well as some used games. I've spent most of the time playing FO3 and had over 300 hours into the same game before my (avoidable) nightmare started. And yes, it's the Shalebridge ant tunnel bug. Why in the hell wasn't this fixed in the GOTY edition? I can't believe this bug wasn't squashed to begin with during beta testing, as there's nothing unusual required to activate it and I'm sure every other OCD suffering individual triggered it too. Anyways, after doing some reading I tried clearing the cache, with both the "hold A while booting the game" and from within the Dashboard's menu. Bad idea. Now I can't even load a single save game I have left because it's telling me some of the content won't be available if I load those saves, and if I try to continue anyways, it freezes on loading the save. FUCK! This console has never been connected to the internet, so what content are they talking about and is there any way to 'get it back'? Would deleting the game and reinstalling do anything to fix this (does deleting games also automatically delete saves, or are you given a choice)? Connecting to the internet? I was planning on playing the game again anyways after getting a hardcopy of the Prima guide, but this still bugs the fucking shit out of me and I can't believe it doesn't get more prominent warnings, like on the sticky Essentials thread here? I hear Oblivion also suffers from some major bugs, even worse than FO3? WTF? Do I now have to spend hours on the net before even playing a fucking Xbox 360 game researching if it has bugs and how to avoid them, if even possible? Any other major titles besides the two mentioned that are suffering from major gameplay breaking issues? Now some thoughts. I immediatley wished this was a MMO or at least had some sort of multiplayer in it and I guess there is a new FO MMO being worked on so that's good. Given the surroundings of the game, I was often finding myself wishing they had included some sort of vehicles, even if perhaps only bicycles. Mountain biking anyone? LOL. They could even include a 'rock climbing/jumping' contest element to the game. Oh, when up on those satellite dishes and other high places, peering over the edge, I imagined having previously scavenged a sporting goods store or something and stumbled upon...parachutes! BASE jumping! BOTTOM LINE: PLEASE PUT A WARNING IN THE RELEVANT STICKIES ABOUT PROMINENT GAME RUINING BUGS.
