Haha.....

You cannot tell me following that bad ass through Washington D.C. wasn't fun.

RE: COMMUNISM
You're welcome.
For all those of you who haven't had the pleasure of playing Fallout 3, Liberty Prime is a part of the main storyline.

WARNING SPOILERS

Throughout the story, the player comes across Knights and Paladins of the Brotherhood of Steel, an organization which is the leftovers of the American military and who have dedicated themselves to collecting weaponry from the pre-war time period in order to bring order to the Wasteland. They've set themselves up in the Citadel - which we know as the Pentagon - and are working on a weapon they discovered there.
That's Liberty Prime.
In the Fallout storyline, the war that ended the world began with a Chinese invasion of Anchorage, Alaska (which you get to experience with the Operation: Anchorage downloadable expansion). Liberty Prime was intended to lead the charge to retake Anchorage, but the engineers couldn't find a power source small enough to not weigh the robot down while at the same time producing enough power to run its incredible weapons systems. Before they managed to get him running, Anchorage had been liberated and the bombs had fallen. Liberty Prime remained in storage in the ruins of the Pentagon until discovered by the Brotherhood.
The storyline of Fallout 3 climaxes in a battle between the Enclave - the evil remnants of the US government - and the Brotherhood of Steel over control of a massive water purification system. The player, on the side of the Brotherhood (the Enclave wants to use the purifier as a bio-weapon by infecting the water supply rather than purifying it), walks in to the Citadel to discover that the Brotherhood doesn't have the manpower to defeat the Enclave. They are outnumbered and outgunned, and the Enclave is dug in around the Jefferson Memorial. To make matters worse, the Enclave's weaponry is centuries more advanced than the Brotherhood's - while the Brotherhood has been scavenging, the Enclave has been inventing.
Their only hope is Liberty Prime. The Brotherhood members in charge of him protest, claiming that there simply isn't enough power to run him, that he would collapse in a useless heap... and why? Because, no matter how much they try, the robot's power source always routes all energy available to the weapons systems rather than anywhere else. Liberty Prime is keeping them from taking away its guns. WHILE IN SLEEP MODE.
Still, without any other options, the Brotherhood decides to activate Liberty Prime anyway. Without him, all is lost; he's the only weapon powerful enough to break the energy barriers around the Enclave's position at the purifier. So the player - and the Brotherhood - are on fire support. It's their job to get Liberty Prime to the shield intact.

...Turns out he doesn't need the help.

As soon as he's powered on, Liberty Prime is a propaganda-spouting, Enclave-stomping, laser-firing, nuke-tossing whirlwind of mechanical death. Nothing stands in his way as he singlehandedly slaughters every Enclave soldier between the Citadel and the Jefferson Memorial. He blasts vertibirds out of the sky, fries artillery batteries with laser-vision, and literally throws nukes at anything too far away to step on.
Then he comes to the energy barrier. No laser is going to get through it, and the nukes prove ineffective.
His solution?
Step into the barrier and ****ing overload it with his own power source.
Then he gets right back up and resumes his rampage of death.

So yeah. Most bad-ass motha****er in video game history.
Also, here's a video with some actual Liberty Prime gameplay footage.
