[ Game -> Update ]

Bethesda's Community Manager Matt Grandstaff has written several posts concerning the NMA preview of Fallout 3:

Pete called me on Friday (or maybe it was Thursday), and he suspected that someone at NMA had met with him based on questions he got, and reading the interview, you can definitely tell they're from Fallout fans. (...)

Nope, no conspiracy [to keep Fallout fans out]. He was simply letting me know to be on the lookout for coverage from NMA on the game. We hadn't allowed fan sites access to the game, because we are only showing the game to gaming press at this time. Given that both of the guys got press access, they got to see the game. (...)

[You're going to add it to the preview links on the official site?] I would say there's a bit of finagling in this case, wouldn't you? This was a press event after all...one that we couldn't even accommodate all the press that wanted to see the game.

I think it was kind of expected for NMA to go all undercover to get in, Pete has a keen eye for the obvious.


I'm not usually for bans but can someone please ban SuckmyGstaff, he only has 3 posts and they already turned to shit.

So you are complaining that only the press was invited to a press only event?

Maybe the complaint is that it shouldn't have been a press only event?

NMA is more press than the "real" gaming press, i.e. having more independence and journalistic spirit, so it's all good.

So you feel that all decisions made about the publicity of this game need to be checked with the residents of this forum?

I am amazed at what you all will whine about. The fallout community has hit a new low in pathetic and childish behaviour.

Should the game be played by game journalists only, as well?

Matt is still mad because Daddy (Bethesda) didn't allow him to make a Fallout larp game, hence he identified himself with Daddy and wants to suck his junk :cigar:

We're complaining, that Fallout is getting raped, twisted into a fucking FPS, the fact that "old school fans" are treated like outdated, anachronistic fucking idiots by a company where everyone seem to be a HUGE FUCKING FALLOUT FAN without ever playing it.


Bethesda should have turned Fallout into an empty unbreakable pinata. Well... technically they're doing it allready.
