[ Game -> Update ] - News related to Top Story: Fallout 3 news | More info on Company: Bethesda Softworks | More info on Game: Fallout 3

Matt Grandstaff, Bethesda Community Manager, has taken some time out of his busy schedule to inform us that they are hosting a Fallout 3 perk designing contest on the occasion of the upcoming Fallout anniversary. Actually we'd just received this information two minutes earlier by way of our very own Fallout Ranger, but it's nice to see that we're being kept in the loop.

"Celebrating 10 Years of Fallout!

10 years ago the original Fallout was released and forever changed role-playing games. Now is your chance to be a part of Fallout history. We're giving you, the fans, a chance to design one of the perks for Fallout 3!
No, we aren’t going to tell you about any of the perks that are already in Fallout 3. First, that would spoil it, and second, we don’t want to color your ideas with anything we are, or aren’t doing. It’s a clean slate for you. Be creative.
Think of something in the spirit of Fallout. What would you really want your character to be able to do in the game? Don’t worry about any stat requirements or the level you would get it at. Just design a cool perk and we'll fit it in where it could go.
If you win, you'll get your Perk in the game, your name in the game's credits, AND your choice of the grand prize from the Prize Vault: either the PC or the Console flavor.
All entries must be in by 11:59 pm (Eastern time) on October 31, 2007. We'll announce the winner of the contest, and all the other awardees, in November."

There are seperate prizes for PC and console owners, so there should be something there for everyone. So head on over to the contest page and get to work on those perks. You don't want to see someone from NMA get away with your loot do you?

I hope this means Bethesda will actually listen to the voice of the fans from now on.


Edited for Ausir...

Aside from the PlayStation logo on the Fallout 3 website and the devs having confirmed long ago that it will be developed for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3?

Well they certainly seem to be aiming for the Xbox crowd more (bad sign).

Did they run out of ideas or are they just going to steal the idea like they did w/ the artwork a while back (okay fine that was Microsoft but same game anyway)

It's worse than that.

The very last motherfucking thing I want to see is bethesda farming goddamn design work out to the general public. Not because the general public doesn't know fallout better than bethesda's shitfest designers (we do) but because bethesda's fucking dark brotherhood rehashing nuke launcher adding miniboss fucking scripting idiots are going to pick the JOHN MADDEN (You can throw like madden says you are supposed to!) and the BOBBLEHEAD FAN (you can fucking kill yourself!) perks.

You fucking know they are.

I suggest here and now that DAC have a "perks bethesda would like" contest.

Edit: And I already submitted John Madden and Bobblehead Fan

Perk Name: Bethesduh Developer

Perk Description: Your parents dropped you on your head as a baby. As a result, your only option was to get employment as a software developer. You suffer from permanent retardation and -10 INT. However, as this is a Bethesduh game, none of that matters and you still talk all normal like (or as normal as someone who only splurts out "Rumours?" is able to talk).

Perk Name: The Pete

Perk Description: From constantly smiling to get your picture taken your face has become deformed in such a way that you now look retarded. You take -9 CHARISMA and -4 ENDURANCE because your nose has become too retarded to take in enough air for you to do anything useful. Also -10 to STRENGTH cause your a swell guy or something.

Perk Name: Thor Kaufman

Perk Description: You are such a fucking negative Nancy, always naysaying and just being a downer in general. You take -10 CHARISMA and you cannot recruit any party members as they do not want to be around your constant pissing and moaning.

I'm just kidding. Thor is one of the men, if not the man entirely.
