So I installed broken steel/point lookout on my xbox. Then I put in the Fallout 3 disk and selected continue from last saved game.
I find myself in the rotunda about to activate the purifier. I find whether I activate the purifier or not, I die a few seconds later and get shown a black and white movie highlighting the character's life, and then credits for the game.
How do I start the expansions? Why is the game ending here even after I installed the expansion packs? The game does give me notices while in the rotunda like "there's a boat going to point lookout" or something, and "broken steel activated".
