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

Polish gaming site Gry-Online has posted a nice Fallout 3 Q&A. Of special interest is the section on modding and children in Fallout 3:

Shuck: Allegedly there are supposed to be children in-game. Are you going to be able to kill them, like in previous titles?

Emil: That we do not know yet. It is one of the most important topics to think out. The thing is, we're dealing with a next-gen game and we're not only talking about killing, but exploding heads and eye balls rolling down the street. As a designer, you need to ask yourself if you want such elements in the game.

Shuck: We're also dealing with an RPG game, which should leave as many choices as it can to the player.

Emil: Indded, but there are a lot of problems that need to be taken into account.

Shuck: So tbe children are not neccessarily going to appear in Fallout 3?

Emil: They will positively be there, but we don't know if they can be killed.

...

Shuck: Do you plan to support the modding community by providing them with tools?

Emil: We don't know yet - we're discussing it. It is something we've done for Oblivion, but this doesn't automatically mean we'll do the same for Fallout. The truth is, preparing such tools takes a lot of time, and this is time lost to production of the actual game. We shall see.

Shuck: Is this caution caused by the trouble caused to you by the infamous Oblivion mod?

Emil: No. But it is a fact that when you release modding tools, you loose a great deal of control over your game.

Read the whole thing here.

So I'm curious as to how that works for children if they AREN'T killable (same thing with the unkillable NPCs). Do they just kick your ass uncontrollably? Are they actually invincible? What?

I'm guessing after you shoot at them a whole bunch, they faint, like Invincible People in Oblivion.

That system made a little more sense when you weren't using shotguns and high-powered rifles.

I want a Gauss Rifle +3, can someone please make one for me.

Better yet remove Vats and make it run and gun so my mind can relax after working all day at walmart, the less I think the better off I am...my own thoughts are just so dangerous and complex, I can't walk and chew gum at the same time.
