If you've ever thought that what Fallout 3 needs is more laser mounted battle tanks, then according to xbawxlive the new Fallout 3 Operation Anchorage will be right up your ally:

It's hard to imagine anybody doing everything in Fallout 3 already, but I guess that's why they call some gamers hardcore.

IGN: The liberation of Alaska was hinted at a lot during Fallout 3. What can we expect out of that simulated battle?

Jeff Gardiner: In Operation: Anchorage the player will find themselves able to re-live the famous liberation of Anchorage from Fallout lore -- inside a simulation similar to one found along the main quest of Fallout 3. Once the player finds their way into the simulation, they'll be stripped of their resources and have to survive within the rules set up by the simulation's creators.

The Chinese red army is everywhere, and the player will first have to secure the surrounding mountain side and then fight their way into the Chinese base. The player will have to use a lot of their standard combat skills, along with several new tools that will only be available in the downloadable content. These include interactive Strike Teams under the player's command and unique armor, weapons, and other exotic gadgets.

IGN: Will any of the three downloads come with a lift of the level 20 cap?

Gardiner: Yes, the plan is currently for the third DLC, Broken Steel, to increase the level cap. This will be accompanied by new foes, perks and all of the other Fallout 3 staples our fans expect.​
Anchorage, fuck yeah! In other news xbawgamer360ozsomethingorother compare Fallout 3 to the originals:

Drugs and their original names: Our great Australian friends at the OFLC thought it would be a good idea to ban the game due to its use of real life drugs such as morphine. This was a blessing in disguise as Bethesda just changed the drug names for all regions back to those of the originals, which in turn allowed for a more authentic Fallout experience.

Action Points - VATS: Bethesda keep the turn-based combat which was so vital to the isometric Fallout games before, although this time the combat is far easier than in the previous titles.​
Right. Oh and ermm... Thank you Office of Film and Literature Classification for helping Bethesda stick to canon.
