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

GamersInfo has posted their E3 impressions of Fallout 3. Highlights:

On Vault 101:

So, we walked around. For the demo, we tried to lie to our father, but with only a 29 percent chance of succeeding, it was a failure, and he ordered us to go take the G.O.A.T. As we walked to the classroom, people would say hello or go about their business - we got to see some Vault greasers (stereotypical 1950s gang members) harassing a young woman, and we could’ve gotten involved with that if we wanted, interacting with the Radiant artificial intelligence. Instead, acting like we were 19 - when you leave the Vault - we headed out of the Vault.

On new creatures:

Then there were a few skirmishes with giant spiders.

On locations and the Metro:

From [the Metro], we exited out into Chevy Chase.

Yes, the game is set around Washington, D.C. - after all, Bethesda is from those parts. (And so am I, so I dug that! I also noticed that the Metro logo was similar to the logo in real life, though the Metro’s design isn’t based off the real Metro.)


Read the whole thing here.

Actually...I just reread the article. I think they actually are talking about ants, but who knows.

Also toilet bowl drinking is confirmed. For awhile there had been some questions as to whether or not it was the reservoir that they were referring to since in the old 1950s nuclear war propaganda films along with ducking and covering you were advised to drink water from the reservoir tank since it would be clean and unradiated due to the porcelain housing.

So, you know, another strike for historical accuracy and another strike against the subtly of Fallout humor.

The guy makes alot of mistakes. He refers to the VATS system in the original Fallout as well as the "reintroduction" of Vault 101. What?

I'm find a LOT of mistakes from articles from E3, but that's probably just because of the hectic (and often drunken) nature of E3.

I'm not all that familiar with DC, does anybody get the Chevy Chase thing?
