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

Destructoid has posted their preview of Fallout 3. Highlights:

At least they sort of understand the Fallout community :p

Fans of the series are smart and they're rabid -- subsequent titles using the Fallout license that were released when the original team split (Fallout Tactics and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel) were torn to shreds. One thing has been made very clear -- if you enjoy eating solid foods, do not f**k with the Fallout formula.

On the setting and weird weapons that suck things up and shoot them:

[Fallout 3 is] set in a post-war Washington, D.C., now known as the Capital Wasteland, complete with bombed-out national monuments. And secondly: to those who are worried about the game being "Oblivion with guns," here's the deal: not so much, actually ... your Internet trolling license has been revoked. (Yes, there are a fair amount of guns in the game, including an awesome gun that can be used to suck up items in the environment and fire them at enemies.)

On cannibalism:

between areas, the loading screen will display various character stats and figures, like how many miles walked. One of the stats was simply "Corpses eaten." When asked about that fascinating statistic, Todd Howard smiled and hesitated before refusing to go into more detail.

Go and read the whole thing here.
