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

Todd Howard went on G4's X-Play and showed off Fallout 3. We actually get to see some real gameplay footage. Most of the footage is combat, but we do get to see the lockpicking minigame as well as lots of footage of the Pipboy. Definitely check it out here.

Edit: I don't have a TV, so I've never seen X-Play before, but god those guys are annoying.

Double Edit: How does a person explode by being hit with a teddy bear?

Spotted @ Bethesda Blog

How comes they Show some Fallout 1 or 2 game footage mixed with Bethesda game footage while they say that Todd Howard created some games which are t3h pwn?

There is also this:

Which through the magic of editing doesn't seem quite as awful.

I have to agree, those guys are complete panzies, not to mention that the entire panzy community will find offense in that.

Not to mention the teddy bears, but I like how the sniper rifle blows off victims arms when it's solely targeted at the dudes head in VATS.

Well, technically, they do own the franchise. Nothing like claiming other people work as your own. Nevermind any mention of the previous games, look fallout 3! look enclave! Oh a raider camp! death by teddy bear..haha I'm a douche bag. - tom

Ya know, they keep saying we can talk our way out of situations, but I've yet to see them give us any proof.

Also, I find it hilarious that with two different demos of this game, Tod did not hack that computer even once.

The character has Bloody Mess. This is the exact same way that trait worked in FO 1 / 2, it's not supposed to be realistic.

Something more legitimate to be angry about is that fucking Fatman. Just looks more stupid every time we see it. The fact that there's no penalty (read: radiation) for using a NUCLEAR WEAPON on something mere metres away - while at the same time you get radiation sickness from drinking some water - is flat out fucked.

Wow, it looks like a nice spinoff.
But not Fallout 3. It will never be a true sequal, thus unworthy of the "3".

The fact alone that the enclave somehow survived, well enough to send vertibirds after you, seems way out there..

Has the wasteland always been this crowded?

Stalker is the only thing as of late that is even allowed to be compared to fallout. And even if it is fucking excellent it is not quite as good as fallout.

As for fallout 3. Goatse Beware the pedobear

Unlike you, the swell guy wankers actually had something to say.

Have you ever heard a group of grown/sober men act more like a pack of retards than the hosts and audience in this bit? The first or second time someone explodes an audience member actually screams "FALLOUT 3!" with the tone and resonance often reserved for a drunken jack-ass declaring that, yes, he is ready for some football.

On the other hand, now that I've seen it in action I can't say that I entirely hate it. Yes, I despise it for not being the sequel that the Fallout franchise deserves, but if I distance myself and it from the other games it looks to at least be a decent, fun shooter.

You know I almost want to post the news coming out of E3 but all it really consists of is Toddy Howard playing the exact same demo and saying the exact same shit about it.
