The reason I don't pay for anything in RMT games and I gave up completely on XBL, WiiWare, and countless online games was the use of fake money. Real money or nothing, I don't want my money to disappear into the ether of fake currency for your digital distribution scheme. Steam, Impulse, and the PSN can have all the money they want though.

WiiWare

After nearly a year of no decent games on the Wii, I broke down and spent $20 on Wii points for some old games.  Only then I find out that the games I'm looking for are $5.00, $5.00 and $8.00.  So now I got that bastard $2.00 in points staring me in the face every time I log on.  I can't buy anything with it because nothing is priced so low.  Every time I play I am kindly reminded that I've got two wasted dollars there that I can't get back... unless I spend more to even that out.  Dammit. 

I'm leaning towards waiting for these addons to hit some other form of distribution.

So due to the general opinion that the expansion wasn't worth it, I decided to restart using one of the big new mods. It's a full balance overhaul called FOOK, which includes about 80 new weapons and armors, including quite a few new models.

First thing I noticed was that all armors had some degree of stat bonus, which I though seemed a little overdone, but I kept going. Killed a couple super mutants that had new melee weapons with a hunting rifle in an office building. Found a Tommy gun, which was fun because it will unload 100 rounds in a matter of a few seconds.

Came around a corner and saw a mutie's back too me, so I popped him in the back with the rifle, knocking him to half. He turns around and I see he has a a big fancy looking minigun - figure I better shoot him quickly before it spins up.

I hear whiiiIIR, followed by BRAAAAAAAAP (new sound effects), and two seconds later my arm flies in one direction and my head flies off in another. My body decides that it doesn't function well without a head and I die. Wish I'd thought to screen shot it.

Looks good i quit midway through my first play through in expectation of mods. This seems to be a good start.

Speaking of paying for things....

I had heard that Operation Anchorage was a free download, but it shows up as 800 points through XBOX Live.

Did I hear wrong, or am I doing something wrong?

If you don't want to hear the answer -- don't ask the question.

Anchorage is 800 pts. 
The Pitt is expected to be 800pts.
Broken Steel (lvl 30 and no end-game) is expected to be 800pts.

*Hopefully* with Steam announcing DLC capabilities the other day we'll see these xpacs show up there.  I'd give money to Steam on these, but not GFWL.

The Pitt launched today (or close to it).  Xbox version is reportedly hosed a bit due to.... you guessed it:  GFWL issues. 

I can't wait till they bundle them all up for retail sale, or I can buy it on Steam.

Why would the 360 use GFWL?  I believe you mean XBL, although the statement from Bethesda simply said that the file they put up was corrupted.

It's all the same Microsoft shit, imo. 

But yeah, I was wrong.

I'm enjoying The Pitt much more than Anchorage so far. Why they felt the need to put even more annoying ghouls in...I just don't know.

Is The Pitt XBox/PC only again? I.e. no PS3?

None of the DLC was announced for the PS3.  I wouldn't really consider Anchorage or the Pitt that big a deal, but it sucks for people playing on the PS3 that they won't be getting the next DLC pack which ups the level cap, and lets you continue past the end of the main quest.

Well I paid for a PS3 copy, if they're not going to release the DLC for the PS3 then fuck 'em, I'll pirate a PC copy and the DLC packs. Fuck. Them.

I would possibly buy for a small price (in dollars) a small expansion direct from the site, but having to sign up to yet another service and go through all the points bullshit doesn't interest me at all.

Screw them, I'm not falling for that Microsoft bullshit a second time. Bring it on Steam or in disc version or choke on it!

I just saw that DLC is coming to the PS3 in summer.  They're staggering the launches starting with Anchorage, but it looks like they're launching all of it at some point with a GOTY version in October for some or all versions of the game.

I was really disappointed with the DLC Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt.  Both of the DLC packs felt really small and it felt like there really was no choice for me to make at all.  If anything this has reinforced in my mind that Bethesda really needs to hire good writers.
