So far up to around 50 hours on Fallout 3. I still don't like the leveling system. How can I repeatedly perform a task and not get any better at it?! Instead I have to assign points to skills given upon leveling up.

 

It would be a waste, but technically I could max out my Explosives skill yet never set or disarm a mine during my entire game. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Maybe I was too fond of the Oblivion setup.

 

The story isn't as involving as Oblivion either, and the scope for your character doesn't seem as diverse. It is very easy to miss out on a lot of quests too unless you make a point of talking to a lot of NPCs.

 

Still the most annoying thing is the massive detours needed to get through cities, with the invisible walls and the masses of rubble. Instead you are forced to pace through subway tunnels to pop up where you want to get to. What was wrong with allowing direct over land travel and subway routes?! It's not like people wouldn't have explored the subways anyway.

Stuck in Oblivion.

 

I was supposed to escort the prince and his bodyguard Jauffre to a hidden Blade temple in Bruma. But I asked them to wait at Weynon Priory while I go adventuring for some side quests. Now I can't find them! How do i find them?!?

I don't know about a time, but I've been playing it, finished the story quest for the first time recently. I think the story is rather good, and am VERY glad they got rid of the terrible levelling system they had in Oblivion. On one hand, yeah, it does seem a bit odd that you get better at things without actually performing the action, but what this led to in Oblivion was weird training sessions where you'd sit there and let something attack you and then repair your armor and repeat the process, or selling arrows to merchants ONE AT A TIME (WTF IS THAT crap?!). And if you didn't, your stats would be flocked and you'd be screwed over by enemies that level better than you. I never finished Oblivion.

 

Convenience Rubble is a bit annoying, though, I agree. I wouldn't knock off points for it, but I can't say it never bothered me.

Try turning that quest on and see if it shows you to go ahead towards Bruma. Then do just that and reach the Blade's temple. Should work, if not then you'll have to do what millions of us have had to do...restart.

 

Anywho.

 

I beat Silent Hill: Homecoming and am now so close to beating Saint's Row 2.

I activate the quest and it did point to the temple. But when I reach there, I can't get in as the door is locked and it requires a key or something :) So, restart is the only option? I almost finished the Dark Brotherhood Sidequest. I am now the Eliminator.

Mirror's Edge - its great except I hate the combat, and it kinda makes me feel motion sick.

 

Tomb Raider: Underworld. - it's just as you'd expect, lots of jumping and shooting Tigers in the face.

 

Shaun White Snowboarding - Waste of a disc. My action sports standards have forever been raised since Skate..... can't wait for Skate2

 

I'll be checking out MKvsDC later today.
