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

It seems that Bethesda issued a press relesae to E3 attendees this year, describing the selling points of Fallout 3. Have a look:

KEY FEATURES:
• Limitless Freedom! – Take in the sights and sounds of the vast Capital Wasteland! See the great monuments of the United States lying in post-apocalyptic ruin! You make the choices that define you and change the world. Just keep an eye on your Rad Meter!

• Experience S.P.E.C.I.A.L.! – Vault-Tec® engineers bring you the latest in human ability simulation – the SPECIAL Character System! Utilizing new breakthroughs in points-based ability representation, SPECIAL affords unlimited customization of your character. Also included are dozens of unique skills and perks to choose from, each with a dazzling variety of effects!

• Fantastic New Views! – The wizards at Vault-Tec® have done it again! No longer constrained to just one view, experience the world from 1st or 3rd person perspective. Customize your view with the touch of a button!

• The Power of Choice! – Feeling like a dastardly villain today, or a Good Samaritan? Pick a side or walk the line, as every situation can be dealt with in many different ways. Talk out your problems in a civilized fashion, or just flash your Plasma Rifle.

• Blast ‘Em Away With V.A.T.S.! –Even the odds in combat with the Vault-Tec® Assisted Targeting System for your Pip-Boy Model 3000! V.A.T.S. allows you to pause time in combat, target specific body parts on your target, queue up attacks, and let Vault-Tec take out your aggression for you. Rain death and destruction in an all-new cinematic presentation featuring gory dismemberments and spectacular explosions.

• Mind-Blowing Artificial Intelligence! – At Vault-Tec®, we realize that the key to reviving civilization after a global nuclear war is people. Our best minds pooled their efforts to produce an advanced version of Radiant AI, America’s First Choice in Human Interaction Simulation™. Facial expressions, gestures, unique dialog, and lifelike behavior are brought together with stunning results by the latest in Vault-Tec® technology.

• Eye-Popping Prettiness!* – Witness the harsh realities of nuclear fallout rendered like never before in modern super-deluxe HD graphics. From the barren Wasteland, to the danger-filled offices and metro tunnels of DC, to the hideous rotten flesh of a mutant’s face.

Do marketroids get paid by the exclamation mark?

>Radiant AI, America’s First Choice in Human Interaction Simulation™

Did they...did they seriously trademark that? Somebody better pop that ego or it'll eat the planet.

Where are the drugs, the prostitutes, the slaves and the ultra violence?

Howcome they changed it to the pipboy 3000 ?

Why not use the 2000 model ?

Its not like newer models were made after the war, and odds are that all vaults had the newest one.

Somebody should let them know that they're not using the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system.

Normally I'd enjoy seeing a press-release this full of itself and optimistically pompous. Its great for games like Arcanum or Bioshock, but from Bethesda it's tacky and a little sad.

Once again, no sense made.

Vault's had the same mass produced gear, should always stay the same model.

The purpose with a press release is to generate hype. And the way to do this today is apparently by using exclamation marks.

The press release is pretty funny, though...

I get the feeling Bethesda are judging fan reaction by how obscure DAC's whining has to become in order to find something to complain about..

*pets the bethmonster* Keep it up, laddy.

Which is why they paid millions of dollars for a franchise that was supported entirely by fans.
