Well, yeah. But wouldn't it be cool if we had a 1950s skin for the forum that was B&W and everyone's avatar got desaturated and scratched? It would have that authentic Eisenhower era feel!

I'm pretty sure it's because GameInformer has a slightly larger audience than DAC and NMA. Sort of like television has a larger audience than ham radio.


I could understand that if they had told us anything about the game at all but it seems like the communication with fansites has been pretty bad.

Oh yeah, definitely. But... again, we've got until Fall 2008 to "get some scoops." :crosses fingers:

I must say it's quite stupid what the communities didn't get shit. I personally believe that Ronnie's voice is mostly due to the fanbase.

More assfucking i say.

If Fallout 3 on PC turns into a "Games for Windows" Vista only travesty, consider it dead.

I also like the new Power Armor more than FO2 or Tactics.

Well, I'm really pretty disappointed to see that the fansites that have been around for almost a decade have been completely skipped over with "exclusives," opting instead for mainstream gaming mags. The mainstream media doesn't need to be bought on this one. It's the major fansites and diehard fans that deserve it


What were you expecting? They're not our friends, y'know, we're not buddies, and Pete Hines' PR style so far has never been to go with The Long Tail, which is us.

Grandstaff doesn't seem to differ in opinion for him. Remember Matt promised new fan interaction weeks ago? Where is it now? Nowhere, is where.

Don't expect presents icon_dance

I quite frankly don't understand what all this fuss about the Power Armor is about. Different artists will draw it differently. And as far as I know Bethesda, it will probably be customizable in-game, or you can buy the other skins for only 5.99$

most likely. Unless DX10 for WinXP will happen.

I don't like the menacing stance of the Power Armor Dude.

It's very aggressive....like a FPS character.
