Hahaha, letting the beams cross will probably result in a horrible QTE. Pretty shrewd of Petey to get his demo aired along with a bunch of really terrible/uninteresting looking games.

Too bad you probably won't see the real game in action; only selected parts specifically scripted for this event. Remember the Radiant AI presentation videos for Oblivion? Proved out the AI behaved completely differently in the final version. Just watch and compare(those of you who've played the game).

I remember watching the first Oblivion live run of the by some game mag swell guy which basically confirmed everything that I'd seen in the previews. I wonder when this will happen?

The ai did behave as they said, the only problem was that you have to sit and watch it for like 5 fucking ours before it actually does anything.

They likely culled the fuck out of it so it could work on xbox.

When are they going to get this horrible macabre foreplay out of the way and start shitting on our faces already? These attempts at belated hype are just annoying.

Doesn't this game come out in like, 6 days? Shouldn't this have happened at last year's E3?

Why is Bethesda acting like Fallout 3 is gonna be THE SHIT? All the hype... all the secrecy... yet corrupt employees will thank Bethesda by uploading F3 weeks before it's gonna be out. Of course out of gratitude, for shitting in their resume... I mean be honest. Would you employ someone who worked for Bethesda? icon_giggle


Edit: Then again working for Bethesda has one advantage: It can't get any worse.

So once you get used to it, you almost feel like part of a incestuous family of cannibalistic submutants from hell.

"vault 101, where no one ever enters, and no one ever leaves"

But didn't two people just leave? Rather easily, I might add?

Oh wow, there's not even lipsynching when they talk or scream.

I love that the elevator to the top of the Washington Monument works.

No matter how many times I hear it "mini nuclear bomb catapult" always sounds ridiculous.

I was maintaining a small glimmer of something along the lines of secretly expecting a game that at the very least was playable.

From this demo, I see... not even going to bother.

Honestly, this game does not look good to me in any way... The death animation even look goofy. The body parts fall apart very easily it seems, and they fall apart in exactly the same way every time.

So much for the dialogue tree I guess?? For an RPG, this seemed an awful lot like a trailer for an FPS..

Hrm, is it a ploy? We give you repetitive death animations, just like the "originals" - and still you complain? LOL I would go there just to be a dick.

What MadBill said. I don't think I'll even be bothered to download this piece of shit. It's so totally fucking shite that I have no words to describe it. Absolutely everything they could have fucked up, they've managed to.
And wtf is with this VATS bullshit? It's not turn based, so why bother. Combat is twitch gameplay anyway, so why bother? SO YOU CAN SEE THE BULLET FLY SLO-MO AMG AND WATCH AS THE ENEMY'S TORSO EXPLODES AS YOU SHOOT HIM IN THE HAND? WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT?!

I have not seen such a steaming pile of horseshit ever since it's worthy predecessor, FO:POS.

I think caszim should have his new poster status revoked, as he failed to inform us about Falllout 3. Fucking useless...
