You can find one in Rivet City. Its behind the pulpit at the church. You need it for Dr.Zimmers mission when you have to find the android

i collect virtually every holotape, i know u need certain ones to get the strongest gun in the game (which i already have on my first file) but i just wanted to make sure they dont need to be "listened to" in order to unlock some things ... anyway THE PITT coming soon, wish they would make this shyt connect online so u can trade ammo and shyt with people and make urself stronger (also giving u an edge with ur favorite weapons)

Fallout 3. One of the most hotly controversial cross-platform projects of 2008, the PlayStation 3 version in particular come in for plenty of criticism owing to its often-poor frame rate - though Digital Foundry was somewhat more even-handed in its Eurogamer a.ssessment at the tail-end of last year.
It turned out that Xbox 360 version, despite its superior frame rate and full-on 4x MSAA, had flaws of its own - notably some inferior textures when viewed close up, along with a lack of specular maps on the monsters and characters, resulting in a somewhat flat look compared to the other versions of the game.
As it happens, the latest Fallout 3 patch isn’t just preparation code for the upcoming DLC… one of the small issues with the launch 360 game has been addressed: the specular maps are back. Perhaps the omission was simply a bug? Or perhaps not, because while the effect has been replaced in the more obvious locations, elsewhere it is still absent. But regardless, it’s an obviously welcome addition for 360 owners, and we presume that the upcoming DLC will be looking as good as it can possibly be. Nice.

Speculars are back. In certain places, at least. This polished effect was incorporated into the PS3 and PC versions of the game, but only now, post-patch, is it seen in the 360 code…

However, it’s not all good news. The lower resolution textures, only really apparent when viewed close-up, remain as they were on 360, with PS3 still having the edge

And here’s a nice YouTube HD slideshow video with these images, and many more. See what’s improved, and what isn’t in full 720p HD… be sure to hit that full-screen button.

The Problem with the PS3 version was the jaggies/lack of AA. 360 version had this problem of course. Overall, the 360 version did look better when you played them side by side. That was before this upgrade.

Three new screenshots for Fallout 3's upcoming The Pitt downloadable content introduce us to the Trogs, scampering, light-fearing mutants that want to eat your face.

The Trogs are actually creatures that were supposed to appear in Black Isle Studio's canceled Fallout 3 project, Van Buren, characterized as a race of mutant hillbillies that holed up in caves when the bombs struck. Centuries of darkness and slow exposure to radiation changed them into yellow-skinned creatures of the night, the Trogs. The Fallout 3 Trogs look much different than the concepts for the Van Buren Trogs, which can be found over at the Fallout Wiki. Between the two, I'm hard-pressed to tell you which frightens me more.
