Hi - better late to the party than not at all
I'm nearly at the end of the original Fallout 3, having had it in my backlog for months now. I've tried to play it a couple of times before, but the first time was while I waited for my import of Demon's Souls to turn up, so you can see how it got rejected in favour of that... (although in retrospect, I have to say I think Fallout is the better, although buggier, game).
I never managed to get into it (Fallout) whenever I tried to play it, but the recent PSN outage has given me motivation. So enough with the pointless backstory pre-amble and onto my question (or 2).
I was mooching around the Fort Constantine bunker for the armour/quest/trophy and mindlessly hacking terminals for dribbles of XP when one gave me the option to "launch ICBM". Well, obviously I clicked it - how can you not?
But then a lot of alarms went off, and it made a lot of noise as it did exactly what it said on the tin - launched an ICBM. And I thought "hmmm, maybe I should have considered that for a bit longer". Does anyone know what effect that has? Or is it just random, cool fluff with no effect on the game world at all?
And while I'm here, I forgot all about the dog I'd seen in the marketing all those months ago. And I've been running around the wastelands for 100-odd hours now, yet I still don't know where to get that dog... I realise it was probably in Valut 101, which is now locked to me because Amata banned me. But I explored the vault pretty thoroughly - but don't remember seeing any dogs until I had to euthanise the first rabid dog I came across in the wastes. So where do you get the dog? Or is it only available through a certain chain of actions?
Thanks for any help on my newb ignorance (as I approach the platinum lol).
Solved! Go to Solution.

OK thanks - looks like the dog is a lot more missable than I thought. I vaguely remember having to find a scrapyard, but can't remember why. And I certainly didn't find Dogmeat. Oh well - no biggie. I just had to dump a load of weapons and armour to stop the game freezing every 10 minutes, so don't really need a companion to find me more stuff
