More info on Game: Fallout 3

Crispy Gamer's Tom Chick had quite a bit to say about Wired's latest preview of Fallout 3. The post, taken from QuartertoThree:

Man, that's really disappointing to read that stuff on Wired. I had my thirty minutes with the game today and it was over like *that*. I barely had time to meet a few characters, dig the combat against a couple of molerats and dogs, and do a little perking up, all the while tuned into a crackly broadcast playing some Billie Holiday. Based on these preliminary bits of awesomeness, I couldn't even begin to comment on the quality of the writing. Because pretty much all I've seen are a few dialog choices.

It's a mystery to me how Earnest Cav. can make pronouncements like he's made based on the thirty minutes of time we get at E3. That's a pretty sad smear job.

As for likable characters, heck, I really liked two of the people I met. The black guy in the cowboy hat who you saw in one of the early screenshots is the sheriff of Megaton, a town built around a crater with an unexploded nuclear bomb -- Fat Man style -- at the bottom. He was your standard-issue small frontier town sheriff, but plenty likeable, even when you're trying to sass him. I also liked Gob, the irradiated ghoul bartender, who's obviously supposed to be a sympathetic character.

Anyway, nice work, Wired. :( I guess they're hiring from NMA, or RPG Codex, or wherever these goofballs spawn from.

Hey, he's been to the Codex!
