More info on Game: Fallout 3 | More info on Person: Pete Hines

Gry-Online.pl (Polish site) has a video interview with Pete Hines as well, this time in English, with Polish subtitles. Some excerpts, in my own words:

---"If you keep shooting at random buildings instead of your enemies, you're not going to hit anything..." - Pete Hines, on player input during combat in Fallout 3.

---Pete does mention that hacking and dialogue, among other non-combat skills will play a part in how successful your character is, which is why Pete says, "which is why I do think it is very similar to Fallout 1 and 2...", although Pete does take a quick jab saying that it won't matter as much if you're a good twitch gamer or how fast you are with a keyboard and mouse.

---Around 1:20 into it, Hines confirms there will be an Oblivion-esque slider bar for difficulty (If that's not what he's saying, please prove me wrong)

---A level cap of 20, which is "pretty high" and at that point you'll be "pretty tough and able to kill just about anything,"

---"What types of characters can we be in Fallout?" is asked of Pete - his response is "any or all of those things, you can be particularly good at one thing and be a big brawler, be a good who runs around and shoots first. You can be the evil guy, you can be the good guy, you can be neutral. You can focus on science, you can focus on stealth, speech, any and all of those things, and all the combinations in-between."

---Watch about 3 minutes into it, if you can - it gets good. Pete is asked about "die-hard Fallout fans"

---Also, once again confirmed Fallout 3's enemies will not level like Oblivion's did.

---The interviewer says "we all have seen the headlines saying '500 endings or so'" - I saw 200, did I miss something?

---Pete hints that at E3 they (Bethesda) will probably start showing some different areas, *actual!* gameplay footage (Pete does say nobody has yet, so I'll give him that), and confirms Fall 2008 release still on track for Fallout 3.

Video is 6:37 long, and can be found here
