[ Game -> Preview ] - More info on Game: Fallout 3

Gamespot has posted their preview of Fallout 3. They sum it up nicely in one paragraph:

First, here are some key basics about Fallout 3. Yes, it's a first-person game, but it also has a third-person camera if you like to play that way, and the camera can be moved so that it almost mimics the perspective of the original Fallout games. No, it's not a pure action shooter, though it can be played like a shooter in some ways, if you want. However, the game does rely on role-playing statistics to determine whether you hit or miss. More intriguingly, you can pause the combat at any time and target specific parts of an enemy's body, just like you could in the original Fallout games. And, yes, it's very much a role-playing game with hundreds of quests. While it only has a few hundred characters as opposed to the 1,500 in Oblivion, each of the characters in Fallout 3 will have his or her or its own distinct identity and dialogue. But we'll cover all of this in a bit.

As for the setting, we know it's in the DC area, but:

Fallout 3 is set approximately 30 years after the events in Fallout 2, though knowledge of the first two games is not required.

And we finally find out what the deal is with Paradise Falls:

When you reach the outside world, you'll find yourself in the blasted wasteland in and around Washington D.C., a departure from the American West seen in the first two games. This is an area teeming with wild creatures and rival factions, such as the Brotherhood of Steel, which defends the remnants the capital; the Slavers who occupy Paradise Falls, a converted strip mall; and the super mutants, tough-as-nails humanoids looking to take over

Weapon creation!

[Y]ou can create your own weapons from various [spare] parts.

Go here to read the rest of of it.
