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

Eurogamer recently talked to Pete Hines about downloadable content for Fallout 3:

Bethesda voice Pete Hines has claimed downloadable content for Fallout 3 will be several hours long and will include an entirely new quest line. What no horse armour?

"We want stuff that's going to be several hours. Not just like a one-off thing, but something like where you can download it and play it for X number of hours," Hines told ShackNews.

"It'll be similar to what we did with Knights of the Nine in Oblivion, where it's like whole new quest lines, new stuff, that kind of thing.

"We want to do stuff like that, where it's adding hours of tangible stuff to the experience. And it plugs into your existing game, so whether you're starting a new game, or you're playing for 40 hours, you can go off and play this," said Hines.

Bethesda revealed during E3 that downloadable Fallout 3 content would only be available on Xbox 360 and PC, but not PS3. Apparently work on is well under way, too.

"We stopped doing content a pretty good way before we finished the game in terms of adding new stuff. So we already have folks starting to look into what [the DLC] might be," added Hines.

Dog armour.

They started on the DLC before they shipped the game? Why not include it in the original fucking game? Way to milk those brahmin.

Sigh, nothing new here. We have already proven they are in it for the money, nothing more.

Hey kids!

Did you know that you can download Fallout 3 for FREE using Bittorrent? Why waste piles of money on something that essentially costs you nothing? And best of it all... you can do this without any legal repercussions so that makes it perfectly OK. thumbsup

Search for "Bittorrent +getting started" on google and your view on commercial digital content will be changed forever!


P.S. Don't forget to tell your friends about it too.

This whole "Downloadable Content" bullshit is what's wrong with the society today Che It feels so like The Sims - when they released the sequel I really thought (how naive of me) that it would be full of stuff since they had to come up with all those fancy things in Sims 1 expansions, but now we can have it all with the original game! I guess money makes the world go around after all.

re: DLC - I just have to shake my head. They truly have no shame, none. They're like the 250 lb (translate into kilos if you like) fat guy who wades around at the nude beach in bad need of a 3-day tan, leering at all the barely-of-age girls roaming the sands in their bikinis. They are the utter lechers of video gaming.

I... like your analogy. Reflects somewhat badly on the analogizer though.

If the downloadable content becomes free at some point in time, then yeah; it'll be worth the wait without much to complain about.

Though I do agree that it would have just been better to include it in the store-bought copy rather than make people pay for it later, keep in mind that they cut production on such additions so they could finish it up and have it on shelves faster. Positives and negatives on both sides, granted, but so far, I think we can all agree that money isn't the biggest challenge; waiting on it to be released is.

Speaking of which, what really got me excited the other day as I was watching the demonstration is that there aren't any draw distance limitations, or any of that shit. It's wide open, off-into-the-horizon visuals, and as of yet, I don't think I've seen any other games that have that going for them. Mass Effect was impressive, but if I recall correctly, it did get hazy in the distance.
As for everthing else they've shown... Fallout 3 just MIGHT live up to our expectations for the franchise.
JUST MIGHT.

And if the game is going to be so good without DLC, whatever new content, be it guns or what have you, is likely just going to be the cherry on top.

Let's not jinx it.

By some weird twist of fate, such statements tend to coincide with someone 'might' being a retard.

I've been kinda 50-50 on the whole Fallout 3 ordeal, but given Danny's careful thumbs-up, I just MIGHT buy the collector's edition. icon_chick

I saw Eve before and they did something like that there. In space, that works. In FPS, I begin laughing now.
