That's good advice. The way I play games like Fallout 3 is that I tend to complete as many of the quests in a given area as I can, sometimes picking up side quests and completing them along the way. I went through the entire game and never felt like I was way outgunned by any enemies I faced. The hardest part of the game for me was just after getting out of the Vault. Very little ammo and a baseball bat...that's not a good time.
I started out playing the 360 version, then a year later I bought the PC version and played it with a couple of cheats. I'd repair all of my own items with bottlecaps that I would give myself through the console, same with ammunition. That game was much more fun when ammunition was plentiful.
Please, no discussions on how 360's are flashed or otherwise modified to play illegal copies of games. You can talk in general about piracy and bans, but don't start talking about firmware revisions, flashing drives, how it's done, or linking to sites that describe that stuff.
