Fallout 3 Spoilers: Benefits of Blowing Up Megaton


Random Terrain

4,601 views

By now anyone who wanted to play Fallout 3 probably has, but just in case, don't read this if you haven't played and hate spoilers.

I've played through the main missions around 4 times now. I kept replaying to see what would happen when making different choices. This time I decided to blow up Megaton and live in the nicer Tenpenny Tower suite for a change.

After blowing up Megaton, I visited the spot and Moira Brown was there without most of her skin, or maybe it was just extra crunchy. I thought she said something about going to Underworld or the museum or where other ghouls are. Anyway, I knew where she was going. After she's living in Underworld with the rest of the ghouls, she's an extra person to sell crap to, so that's a bonus. A guy there will also let you trade scrap metal for things like stimpaks. Blowing up Megaton makes Underworld worth visiting since more of what you want is in one place.

In the general area of the lobby in Tenpenny Tower, there are 6 places where you can sell your junk. Yes, I said 6 places all in the same general area. Much better than Megaton. There's one guy at the desk, two people to the left, one person and a robot to the right, and a doctor at the back of the lobby. I should probably mention that I killed the ghouls that wanted to get into the place. No deals, no backstabbing, just a plasma gun facial for Roy Phillips and his freaky friends.

The Tenpenny Tower suite isn't falling apart like the house in Megaton and the furniture is in good condition. You don't feel like you're living in Oscar the Grouch's garbage can. You don't have to run up and down stairs to sleep or store items since everything is in one room. When you want to leave, you can go out on the balcony and fast travel.

If you are worried about karma, you can give water to the homeless guy outside of Rivet City or donate to a church until your karma is as high as you want it.

I don't know how many more times I'll replay the game, but I think I'll blow up Megaton from now on.

I was pretty annoyed by Tenpenny Towers. If you gain that companion you lose a shopkeeper. if you side with the ghouls it changes the whole place.

 

Not as annoying as going to rivet city and shopping. If you're there at the wrong time you'll be happily perusing the goods and a little later EVERYBODY will freak out like you're trespassing.

I grabbed the dog as an early companion this time, then when I got Fawkes, I told the dog to stay at my home (so I no longer have the damn thing blocking where I want to walk). Since I have all of the downloadable content, both followers are pretty much indestructible. The other followers I have tried are too damn wimpy and stupid. I refuse to babysit death-seeking dumbasses. I'd rather just use Fawkes, even if it does take 7 years for his weapon to warm up. I basically use him as an early warning device and as a decoy.

 

I have all of my Tenpenny shopkeepers. I guess it helps that I do everything by myself if I don't have the dog or Fawkes and I also don't steal anything from Tenpenny Towers.

As far as I know, you need to pay attention to the time. You can't linger after business hours in that area.
