Default Re: Fallout 3 is Oblivion with Guns, Says Swedish PC Gamer

Is the game Live enabled?. This is the box shown at play.com, it looks like it does not have Live, however you can't trust that kind of purchase pictures.



However this collectors edition image looks like a real photo taken from the real box contents, and I don't see the Live logo in it



But at Games For Windows page, the game is shown as having Live on PC, and DLC on both 360 and PC

• Exclusive Fallout 3 Content! - Once again, Games for Windows – LIVE and Xbox 360 LIVE will be the home to exclusive downloadable content for your favorite blockbuster! These episodes will expand on your epic adventures in the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout 3.
So... does it have Live or not?

Update: this banner is at the bottom of the official Fallout 3 page:



And finally... the game has no multiplayer, so... why it should be Live enabled?. Only for achievements?

Two unbeliveably crappy innovations thanks to consoles. We used to enjoy great mods and addons for free. Now we have to pay for tiny things like a new armor or a map pack
yap, also caused by greed. why should people have better add-ons for free. with so many good add-ons for free. who is going to buy all the **** that Bethesda releases.

in Oblivion they released horse armor, in F3 they will do Rats Armor.

Even though I have another rig, my laptop would work perfectly well as a mid-range gaming rig. Nothing wrong with it at all IMO.
