The Escapist E3 Preview

More info on Game: Fallout 3

The Escapist has posted their E3 preview of Fallout 3....and something just ain't right. They have quite a few facts wrong. Highlights (and other weird stuff):

They think Van Buren is 10 years old:

It's been a decade since the original Fallout was released, and so much has changed about gaming, and games, that a new Fallout made like the originals would be largely unplayable, and deeply disappointing. And before you start saying "Van Buren" remember that that game, too, was made almost ten years ago. It would not be the same game today.

On "Oblivion with Guns":

Still, to the chagrin of some, it is, in fact, much like Oblivion meets Fallout. It is first person, NPCs do feel more like Bethesda NPCs than Black Isle NPCs (although the dialogue options are still hilarious and wonderful) and the world feels much more malleable.

The Escapist apparently didn't play Fallout, otherwise they would realize you saved the world from the Master:

In Fallout, one always felt as if the world was what it was, and you would live or die without making much of a difference. War, after all, never changes. You could stomp out the bad guys if you wanted, but that would leave only a gaping hole, not rejuvenate the world. I get the feeling from this demo that Bethesda's Fallout will feature much more quest feedback, and perhaps offer the chance to change, if not war, then perhaps a few lives.
