Welp, here I am.,

Coulda sworn we had another topic on fallout already and someone brought this up.

Clamber, with a heart of steel
Cold is the ocean spray
And your death is on it's way
With maidens you've had your way

I think this one will be a little more darker than the last two, and not as witty. Only time can tell for sure though.

This month's Game Informer has a Fallout 3 cover story. I couldn't find any links to scans, so this should do, and mods delete this post if need be. My future apology if applicable. http://www.demonoid.com/files/details/1221663/9139251/

The current launch time they're aiming for is Fall 2008.

The game will be played as an fps/3rd person, not isometric. However the devs stated that it won't be twitch based. You can aim and fire in real time and your character's skills determine the rest, or you can pause the game at any time to go into Vault-Tec Assisted Targetting System (VATS) to take aimed shots. These shots will give you a slowed down view of the guy's death, plus I think they have a higher chance to crit.

Its not going to be like Fallout 1 and 2 gameplay wise. Think more like Morrowind in the fallout universe with better-than-Oblivion graphics. People are complaining about it not being true to the Fallout name but meh. It looks like it'll be a fun game to me, I'm definitly getting it launch day.

A cool feature about this game is the ability to upgrade weapons as you go.

I don't really care if it isn't isometric or turn based, that's not what made the Fallout games my favorite series. What made the Fallout games great was the over-the-top violence, sex, drugs, and most importantly the humor. If they can get those things, then it could be a post-apocalyptic racing game for all I care.

Official X-Box Magazine currently has an article , with a bit of an update on Fallout 3 from some big-wig at Bethesda.

The most important things I took away from it are the fact that the game is much bigger than originally predicted and most importantly...

The game is done.

They just have a few months of pollishing to do and it is on track for a Q3 release.

I am Happy

HOLY CRAP.:D :D :D :D

I hope they don't retardify it for ExBawks. This is a PC game, and you better need a goddamn keyboard to play it.

I've been hoping that my favorite weapons from 2 make it into 3, as long as the keep the gauss rifle, bozar and the H&k guns I'll be happy.
Nevermind me, I'm just here for the firearms forum.

We know it's coming to PC, we're just concerned that it will be dumbed down because of consoles.

Yeah, people say that about the COD series. :P


I am, after playing both 1 & 2 completely through (kind of), looking forward to this. May not get it right away, but I WILL get it eventually.

I hope they release a special edition with a Powered Armor Helmet in it like Bungie did for the Halo 3 release. That would make me happy, like very happy.

It's good to hear that it is done and they are not delaying it again. I can't wait... :D
