Newer DLC for Fallout 3

Filed under: Uncategorized — Hugsie @ 6:01 pm

I got the Pitt, and it still hasn’t raised the level 20 cap!  ARG!  How am I supposed to check out the new perks if i can’t level anymore?  I really don’t want to re-play the whole game yet again. Otherwise it’s kina cool so far, though it does have a tendency to lock up my 360 from time to time.  There was a system/dashboard update on April 1st, which is said to fix lockup issues with certain game titles; I guess that exlcudes Fallout 3 DLCs.

I love my 360, but one of the biggest gripes I have is how slow it is at rezing textures.  Ever load up a map on Gears2, and everything looks flat and dull. But after about 10 seconds it clears up sharp. and and it looks much better as if you had just put on your glasses?  For some reason the 360 loads textures so slow, and this occurs on many games not just Gears.  It’s like how textures and objects rez slow on Second Life when you login, or teleport somewhere.  But that’s only because everything has to download to you for it to rez on Second Life; it should be nearly instantaneous when all the assets of the virtual enviroment you’re in is all local.  Maybe if I copied Gears2 to my hard drive it would help?  As if I had room anymore.  Maybe this is why Gears 2 has these all of these stupid 5 second count down before the game starts, giving your 360 some time to load those texture up.  Often it still needs yet another 5 seconds.

  1. Really? I could have sworn my XP bar was going up after downloading The Pitt. Did you get the radio notice yet about the mission that takes you there?

  2. It stayed at 20 the whole time. Showing the word “max” when looking at my stats. It also never showed any XP I was getting after making successful kills. I already played though the Pitt, and got all the achievements.
