[ Game -> Interview ] - More info on Company: Bethesda Softworks | More info on Game: Fallout 3 | More info on Person: Todd Howard

The Great Leader Todd Howard, the mastermind behind The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series, will be talking one-on-one with Adam Sessler on tonight's X-Play! He'll be spilling the beans on one of the most anticipated games of the year, the post-apocalyptic adventure Fallout 3. Don't miss tonight's episode of X-Play, Tonight at 8PM ET, only on G4!

Also, check out our Web Exclusive Interview with Todd Howard, talking about moving from Fantasy with The Elder Scrolls and into the post-apocalyptic future of the Fallout series.

Check out the announcement here which has a link to the video from last night, or just click here to go straight to the video.

I'll post some excerpts when I get a chance to watch it tonight - the interview happened last night, top text taken from announcement page.

Much thanks to our own entertainer, who had this to say - "These are "reviewers" who done the infamous Red Orchestra review."

You don't learn anything new except the "Rock-it-Launcher" is more like Half Life 2's gravity gun than ever.

Don't forget he downplays any sort of plot branching or missing out on any content due to character choices as a "bad" thing. And he also basically confirms Megaton as the "Fargoth's Gold" of Fallout 3.

That, and it seems like VATS is the crutch for people who suck terribly at Bethesda's excuse for "action" as opposed to serving any sort of role-playing function.

But still, G4 is pretty dumb, so he might just be saying what is marketable to them and lying through his teeth.

I want to crush the interviewer's face in with a super-sledge... icon_dance

It's obvious that this is mainly an FPS. Does anyone ever think to ask Toddy " Whyat made you decide to take the Fallout series into the shooter genre?"

I enjoyed the Faollout battles because they were at least somewhat strategic. This is just twitch gameplay, oh but there's also slow-mo mode for the idiots..er... i mean the fans.

This game sounds like real mediocre shit. Well that's enough with the dead horse kicking for one day.

Hey guys, let's remake TETRIS to a Fligh Simulator and ignore the people who loved tetris the way it was back since 1985, because they're swell guy and they live in the past.



Coming soon:

Chess - Revenge of the King.

19 weapons, high end graphics, based on the classic game CHESS.

Tetris on a rollercoaster = Audiosurf.

Except that was kind of okay.

I've already played Stalker.

Don't know if I want to play an RPG version.

Oh...


yeah I do.


But can that really happen?


Just a few months to go.


Then the fire.
