I still don't get why they would release images if they weren't going to represent the artwork in the game, but you remember what the developers said about Lionheart demo "the full game is a lot different." I never played Lionheart demo or game but I heard they were they were the exact same type of gameplay.

A lot of people are wondering about the logic behind the release of "non-related" FO3 artwork, and I have an optimistic hypothesis. What BS might be trying to do is build up hype for FO3 within non-Fallout communities for, of course, economic reasons. They already know that they have our attentions, so they are focusing their energy on getting others interested; and others may be more interested in seeing "serious" art, not the sort of styles we are all used to here.

They hope to do this by releasing a bunch of art that stirs the imaginations of (non-traditional Fallout) players, thereby making their squishy little minds more open to the mind-blowingly awesome concept art which is to come.

So, yeah, take all that for what it's worth. icon_crazy

I agree, generally. This is pretty boring. Paradise Falls was by far the best.

In any case, this concept art doesn't say ass about what the game will look like. It wasn't drawn by a Bethsoft artist.

It's a nice teaser site they have set up, though. It really creates buzz like it's supposed to.

I just hope the trailer gives us something we can work with.

It really hasn't created any more buzz than there already was, it's just now focused on these images rather than bethesda sucking.

I dunno...Supreme Commander's GUI took up probably 3/5 of the screen. I thought I was playing a game called GUI instead of Supreme Commander.

You can change the size of the GUI rather easily.

Its hardly a suprise, Ive seen speculation as to that for a while.

Tho its amusing that the FO sites aint been told shit.

Its obvious they dont care about keeping a fanbase.

Ugh, wasn't it well established like a month ago here that the count down was for a teaser? I mean, doesn't the website even say "Count down for the trailor"? What shit do you exactly expect them to tell us that they're telling everyone else?

I will admit to being vaguely curious about what is going on in that picture. Somebody would have built all that other shit for a reason, be it pre-war or post.
