If you missed Fallout 3, don't worry - there's plenty of time for you to catch up, especially since the game looks awesome, in my opinion, and won't get outdated that soon. I know, I know - all those Fallout hardcore fans out there may say that I'm not right, and I must agree with them somehow, because Fallout 3 has some problems in the quests/story side, but nothing's perfect, after all...
The best part of Fallout 3 is that you often feel like starring in a movie. If you want, you can go straight for the main quests and forget about all the little things, but you can also play for at least an hour daily for entire weeks without getting to the bottom of it all. If that's not enough to make Fallout 3 one of the best games of 2008, here's something more: Fallout 3 DLC!
Just like any "serious" successful movie, Fallout 3 left room for some new stories to take place in the same time and place, and - obviously - using the same software platform... but with a little twist.

While "DLC" usually stands for downloadable content released a while after the original game, this time we're in for a surprise - the latest Fallout 3 DLC news says we're going to get a retail package!
According to listings spotted on Amazon's UK store, "The Pitt" and "Operation Anchorage" will come together in a nice package for both the Xbox 360 and PC, with pricing of about $22 in the UK. While slated to appear in late May, this bundle's US pricing is still a mystery.
In the end, here you have my five cents - the funniest part of the whole story is that, as you can see in the image high above, the retail box says "downloadable content," and I really think this wasn't needed. I know this isn't very likely to happen, but what about gamers looking at the box and saying "I will download it, why bother with the box?" before walking away, huh?
Oh, yeah - one more thing - you should also buy Fallout 3 to enjoy the DLC content, if you didn't knew that already. That's it, folks! ;)
