I think this proves the "pulling a Brad" thing is just a myth.

on the pc version you can unlock all of the achievements through console commands.

It's probably just easier to pull a brad when your on camera.

You can easily get all achievements by using a command, like odintal said.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't achievements in Fallout just a matter of sinking time to get them? I've never played the DLC, but I don't remember the main game being particularly hard...

Yea, even if you play on easy you don't lose out on achievements. The hardest ones to get though are the 'good/bad/neutral at level 8/10/14' achievements. The only way to get those is to have three seperate playthroughs I think.

I would do it, but that game has a lot of DLC, and I don't think it's all worth it.

What's so hard about a Fallout 3 S-rank? You just have to spend enough time on it and maybe use some collection guides.

@Bennyishere: Eh I dunno, I found the game to be tough and S-Ranks seem to be pretty tough to get overall, never played more than a few hours of Fallout 3 though

An S-rank is fairly impressive. I wish I could play the game, if only I hadn't lost it.

I've loved Fallout 3 but I'm not sure if I could go for the S-Rank. Completing all the quests would be very enjoyable but I'm a bit reluctant to get into the realms of building every weapon in the game.

This game is $20 brand new these days. Should I buy it, or hold out for New Vegas? 
 
Any suggestions?

@JJWeatherman:  Unless you hate how Bethesda goes about designing things, get the GOTY edition and watch your life slip away. It'll be worth it.

Arg, I really want to, but the GOTY version is back up to $60. That's still a great deal though with all the DLC.

Nah, you can make a save right before you level up with a good character then just take stuff from peoples' houses in Megaton if you want the others.
 
I S Ranked this game in January or Feburary, not that tough if you stick with the game (although bobbleheads was annoying as I had to forfeit 40 hours' worth of progress to go back for one).

@JJWeatherman:  Yeah, that's a significant amount of money, so I know where you're coming from. Nevertheless, you can easily play the main campaign alone for 60-100 hours if you want to explore (more if you decide you want to come back later and experiment with a different character/alignment) and with DLC it's offering a pretty impressive dollar-to-gameplay ratio. It's insane how addicting that game can be, especially if you have a good gaming setup.
At the very least you should get the stand-alone version; I wouldn't skip Fallout 3 for New Vegas.

I found the game to be cool so far, haven't played much, I've been enjoying Mass Effect a lot lately. I feel like Fallout 3 requires a lot of time, and for what I played it was kind of frustrating. 
 
I'd say its definitely worth getting though, 60 bucks for the game and all the DLC is pretty good.

Watch his video. Seriously. 
  
Anyway, congrats to Brad. I'd have this except I'm too cheap to pay for mediocre DLC (Pitt, Mothership Zeta, Anchorage) and I don't want to play as a neutral character.

Any video, other than Doom 2. The ER, etc. go to his page on this site, watch the countless pullin' a brad moments, etc. 
I love the man, but goddamn he's bad at games.
