There is a door to the Sewers....its on the DC water front, near that river which separates Washington from that area with the Quicky Mart and what have you..

Also, I played Fallout 3 recently...LOVED IT! The Fat Man is the best weapon ever...

Fighting a Giant Ant Queen...NO PROB! Just launch a mini-nuke and watch that bitch cook! XD!

The only thing I was kinda pissed about was the few quests, but the main one was pretty emotional for me xD!

There are probably a lot of quests in the game, but it does tend to keep you focused on an area for a while. So it seems like fewer.

I know. Dad is awesome. I know I've heard the voice actor before but I can't remember where. I know Ron Pearlman does the shtick about, "War, war never  changes."

Me too Destiny!! I think it's more emotional for the female players..but it's very emotional nevertheless. I was freaking out at the computer during certain parts ><

I actually found a lot of side quests in the various towns and areas, but my focus was on the main quest the first time so I didn't do a lot of them.

For those residents in Tenpenny Tower, go into Susan Lancaster's room and look through her desk to find something very interesting!

Oh, and Inkidu ^_^ It's Liam Neeson as the voice of the father. He was in Schindler's List, he was Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars and Aslan in Narnia.

That's it! I knew it. No wonder I had the feeling he was going to say, "My young padwan." XD
I like Pearlman too, I wish he'd get a bigger part.

Especially at that part at Project Purity the second time through, when that bad stuff goes down. I swear I almost felt like crying, I was like jumping against the glass and stuff LOL!

It's emotional all through. I did all the Misc quests and a lot of them are quite emotional. :)

He only does one soundbite. He did for the first Fallout too.

I know that's one of the things that sets it apart from TES IV. It has more of a real feel. Your not generic hero A. You're Mr. (Or Ms.) Vault 101. Having Three Dog do news bulletins about you is awesome. "Guess what kiddies? It's time for the famous adventures of everyone's favorite hero. The one, the only, Capitol Crusader!" *Ahh, ahh* and the crowd goes wild.

Yeah, I really liked the Temple of the Union one, that was one of my favorite side quests, that and helping out the people in Big Town.

When ever it involves hostages or something like that, I get really into it... dunno why. :P

In the 360 version you hold the button to switch perspectives, then use the camera controls to move it around the character.

I assume it would be similar in the PC version.

I want to do an unarmed specialist with maybe a melee secondary. That would be bad ass. Punching out mutants and radscorpions! Woot.

That's it. A plus fifteen bonus to the selected skill. Try to play to your SPECIALS, or what you want to do with the character. I use small guns. Almost exclusively. Sometimes I use my super sledge but that's it.

Ah, okay.  Well I picked Small Guns as one of mine as well.  I believe another was Energy Weapons, and I can't remember the third. X_X  Oh well.  I just got my first side quest from Moira in Megaton.

I suppose if you play through just right you could max or near-max all your skills. My repair is getting up there. I just like it because I make railway rifles. Woot!

Great minds think alike ^_^ :)

Yeah, the camera was weird for me at first, but I actually like the 3rd Person View. It kinda feels like a documentary, like your being followed by a camera crew. Plus I've been hardcore into SOCOM and Dead Space lately, so the over-the-shoulder view kinda feels better instead of first person. Though, for melee situations the first person is bar none top notch.

I agree! I mistakenly went to the nearby vault full of crazy people who had no ammo and wasted most of mine on killing them.
