What is it?

What does the LIVE option do on the main menu. I clicked it once, and went through the processes with it, and i looks like an xbox(from what i can remember) and it stopped me from getting to my saves when logged in. What exactly does it do, because i've heard that it just has achivements or something like that so... yeah. What is it?

    To be able to use your old saves you need to go to your save folder (Vista->C:\Users\Username\Documents\My Games\Fallout3\Saves | XP->C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Documents\My Games\Fallout3\Saves), make a new folder named exactly after the Live account nickname then move the saves and all other files in the Fallout3\Saves folder to that one.

    Live makes so you can unlock achievements and get points for it. With those points I think you can buy Operation Anchorage (And other DLCs) when it comes out. It will cost around 800 Live points.

    No this is not how it works.yoiu buy points with real money in game shops.you can buy cards with 1500 xbox live points etc. you then use these to buy dlc . the reason you cant acess your save games is that they are linked to the live profile so if you are not signed in when you first start playing and then sign in you will not be able to acess your saves while signed in lol

    Yes, the achievements in Grand Theft Auto IV are also awarded with Live points.
    Unless you use cheats, you can't get all achievements if you don't start a new game.
    I wonder what the Fallout 3 achievements are.

    If you don't save after using cheats you won't have to go start a new game again.

    Some of the aceivements are things like killing all the behemoths in the game (I'm halfway there :D), finishing the game being evil,good,or neutral, killing so many of a faction,etc.
