More info on Game: Fallout 3 (Van Buren)

Gamespot have a new article up about DEAD games, and this includes Van Buren (and TORN, for Black Isle fans):

The Bright Side

Black Isle was never able to finish its seminal game, and so Fallout fans were left feeling like they had gotten a 10 million Rad dose...for a period of about seven months, anyway. In July 2004, Interplay announced that it had auctioned off the Fallout license to Bethesda Entertainment for a little more than a million dollars, as part of its effort to regain solvency. Bethesda, the studio behind the hit Elder Scrolls series of first-person RPGs, has had the Fallout 3 project under its wing for a little more than a year now, and there have been very few details on the game's progress to this point. In a GameSpot interview, executive producer Todd Howard confirmed that Bethesda intends to keep the flavor and humor of the series as intact as possible, even though the new team has discarded Van Buren and started over from scratch.

One thing I did like about Van Buren was the game engine - they got the look of the 2D games into a 3D engine. I'm hoping (but not expecting) Bethsoft's Fallout 3 to use the same look.
