With no idea of how she got there or how to get out, The Lone Wanderer teams up with other captives to figure out a way to get off the ship and back home – of course, it’s never as easy as that is it?
That being said . . . I . . .enjoyed this installment.
. . .
There really isn’t a more exuberant sentence I can think of to describe it.
It was certainly not my favorite of the 5 DLCs and in fact, I would personally rank this one just above Operation Anchorage. Interestingly enough, both of those additions have one big thing in common: neither one of them take place within The Capital Wasteland.
One of the reasons why I adore Fallout 3 as much as I do is because I love the environment. I love the dirt, the dry air and the grimy raiders looking to take my head off. Pew pewing through dozens of aliens just isn’t the same. Then again, I knew it wouldn’t be.
There were some pretty awesome moments in Mothership Zeta, don’t get me wrong, but to me it just wasn’t Fallout 3. It certainly wasn’t nearly as good as Point Lookout, The Pitt or Broken Steel but for what it is, it’s not bad. I am saddened however that this is the last DLC for this amazing game but having played over 100 hours of it I can certainly say I’ve gotten my money’s worth. Fallout 3 can, without question, hold a secure place in my Top 5 Games of All Time.
So thank you, Bethesda. Can’t wait for the next one.
Switching gears for a second, another fabulous developer came out with some very exciting news today. It seems that Valve has something new planned for Francis, Bill, Zoey and Louis:
Yup. Come September we’ll have a brand, spankin’ new campaign for the original Left 4 Dead. The Gameinformer article details that it will take place between the ending of No Mercy and the beginning of Death Toll. Apparently the helicopter pilot was infected. Go figure.
Lynsey and I talk a lot about Left 4 Dead here. We’re big, big fans. Needless to say, knowing we’ll get to play a new campaign a month before getting a whole new game has us pretty excited:
Also, new character dialogue teases me with thoughts of more Francis/Bill banter.
I'm still waiting for Francis to tell Bill smoking is bad for his health.
Pun totally intended.
