Fallout 3 Now Edited for Everyone!

Remember when Australia banned Fallout 3? And then Bethesda edited the game so it could be played by gamers Down Under? Well, now that version is the only version that will be released.

It sounds worse than it is. The main problem Australia had with the original Fallout 3 was the drug use in the game. There have ALWAYS been drugs in Fallout. Your character can get addicted to drugs. And getting addicted to drugs in Fallout really, really sucks.

But apparently, the problem Australia had was that Fallout 3 referenced real world drugs. The edited version has changed the drug names to fictional names. This doesn't sound that bad to me. I don't really remember any real world drugs in the other Fallouts. There were drugs like Jet, Mentats, and Stim-Paks.

As long as these are the only real changes, it's no skin off my back. (Besides, I'll pretty much buy this game no matter what. Hell, I owned Brotherhood of Steel. I'm hardcore!)

That is kinda lame, but I guess changing the drugs names is not that bad.

i think the edited drug names are better because they returned to the original fallout names :D
