Fallout 3 more bugs

Yep I returned to the world of Fallout 3 from New Vegas and I was right it is slower to load than the newer version. I'm not sure if it's the new hardware or just randomness, but it seems even more flakey.

I encountered the area not loading bug several times whereby the vegetation loads up but the ground doesn't. Try to continue and the game will state that you cannot proceed any further in this direction (just as it does for the invisible walls surrounding the area), but then sticks you to the site until you Fast Travel out the way.

This happened so many times I quit the game and restarted; this time it worked fine. Oh and two freezing bugs that required the console to be powered down, and a few enemies stuck in walls.

Not the best of engines methinks.
