More info on Game: Fallout 3

GameDaily has posted their preview of Fallout 3. Highlights:

On similarities to Oblivion:

For the most part, the game plays like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, a first- or third-person adventure in which players explore a vast land, encountering monsters and non-player characters (both friendly and hostile) along the way.

More on the Pipboy 3000:

Not only does it display the character’s stats -- Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck -- but also the inventory and a data screen which contains an area map, info on various objectives and useful items. It even functions as a radio, picking up distress signals and playing the 20-plus 1940s and '50s songs Bethesda licensed.

More on radiation:

Gamers cannot drive vehicles, but they can use them to kill enemies, shooting the engines and causing a small nuclear explosion, complete with mushroom cloud. At the same time, they must exercise caution, as their bodies absorb some of the radiation and it affects their overall performance. Even the water, which increases health when drank, poses a health risk. Gamers must decide how much radiation they’re willing to take in exchange for escaping a bad situation or improving their character’s wellness.

On weapons and upgrades:

All of the weapons degrade over time and jam, forcing gamers to swap out parts or look for new toys altogether. By toys, we mean rocket launchers, automatic rifles, pistols and a host of other goodies, all of which can be upgraded. To do this, players need to boost their repair skill, which measures their ability to successfully turn a simple looking device into an instrument of death.
