    It appears that the script engines are different in each of the games. From what I’m finding you will need to run one or the other. See Exert below..
    “Fallout 3 makes use of/suffers Microsoft’s Windows Live service, which not only incarcerates your saves in a folder associated with your Live profile, but is incompatible with the Fallout Script Extender. So, if you still enjoy the whole Gamerpoint/Achievement thing, you have a difficult choice to make. My advice: stop enjoying the whole Gamerpoint/Achievement thing. New Vegas uses Valve’s Steamworks service instead, which is compatible with its own New Vegas Script Extender.”
