    I'd actually like to hear more on this. How do you figure it did?

    By making you a slave, by taking away your equipment and forcing you to start from down up. It was just too quick.

    I really liked the scenery though, it's one of the most unique in Fo3, a bit like Zion in NV. And it has remove the puke green filter if you didn't already with the Fellout mod

    Indeed, as the game-in-game. Imagine if the Pip-Boy games you played were Pre-War FPS in VR you are transported to? That could have been a nice detail

    Well it's supposed to be the most racist thing. In a drill you don't want your soldiers to understand the rich culture and history of the enemy, make them people and have them a story and to understand them. You want them to fill the dog-eater's faces with hot lead.

    Well the Brotherhod could get a Pip-Boy easily for themselves. Killing any Vault Dweller they stumble upon, or Enclave the crap out of a Vault. Or better yet, melt your teenager face and grab the PB from the pile of ash.
    But the BOS are good guys! West coast BOS would have totally killed you at a misstep though.

    No, they're the Brotherhood Outcasts.


    They even drop a finger.

    MotherShit Zeta is the worst part of Fallout 3. Allmost everyone I know (irl) that played FO3 agree on this.
    Fallout 3 is shity Fallout game but good game over-all, but mothershit zeta is just 100% horrible. It has some of the worst/cinge writing in gaming history.

    This was like one of those "Why the Star Wars prequels were so great" articles that started popping up when The Force Awakens was about to hit theaters.

    It's really not. It has Funny Aliens and Sci-Fi levels and shooting them!

    Mothership Zeta is like the Warrens level in VTMB, except somehow even more tedious and sold separately.

    The only time I considered mothership zeta good is when I compare MZ and the Pitt with the other dlc and the base game. At it least it is entertaining and there is no way to pretend it is a fallout game.

    But on on the other hand as a standalone game, it would only work as a showcase from young developers looking to be hired. I wouldn't spend money on it,

    None of what takes place in Mothership Zeta has a place in Fallout. If you want to see Sci-Fi B movie shenanigans done correctly, play Old World Blues. OWB is at least on theme of letting go of the past with the rest of the game.

    As a sci-fi fan myself, I honestly didn't find Mothership Zeta that good in terms of science fiction.

    Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse was a much better 50's SciFi spoof. Nailed the retrofuturism of Fallout quite nicely as well.

    Plus, anything in Old World Blues that doesn't fit in with the rest of the universe can be justified with it being a mostly comedy DLC, whereas Mothership Zeta had absolutely no jokes.

    Mothership Zeta is one of those super ingenious, wity Single Layer jokes where it never got past the premise "Fallout but there is aliens" "and?" "uhmmmmm you have 6 months till release".
