[ Game -> Preview ] - More info on Game: Alpha Protocol | More info on Game: Fallout 3: The Pitt

At 1:00 am EST Gametrailers.com, in association with Spike TV, debuted an exclusive gameplay trailer for Bethesda Softworks' upcoming Fallout 3 downloadable content package: The Pitt. The segment aired at the tail end of another exclusive, an extended feature on Obsidian Entertainment's latest project: Alpha Protocol. Primarily serving as a showcase for gameplay footage, the feature was also comprised of several interviews with key figures in the the development of the title, including Feargus Urquhart of Fallout 2 fame. Other notable figures involved in the production of the Obsidian title are Chris Avellone and Chris Jones, also of Fallout fame.

The pairing of these two projects in one special could be considered odd, especially when you take into account that Urquart, Avellone and Jones all worked on Black Isle's Fallout 3 project up until the studio's collapse in 2003.

The exclusive trailer for The Pitt can be found here.

The entire segment, as it aired on Spike TV, can be seen here.

So in other words, gametrailers.com rubbed the loss of Fallout 3, as well as their jobs, in the faces of the Obsidian team by shanghaiing their exclusive with a Bethesda advertisement. Kind of low down if you ask me.

At least the auto-axe is presented in it as a sort of tool. But still, why not just a chainsaw? Getting rotary axeheads to line up for a straight cut would be a bitch.

I doubt game trailers even knew that Obsidian had worked on a version of FO3. It's not something a normal game journalist would know about.

Aonaran it's the videogame industry we're talking about. Tactless is its middle name.

I don't deny but, but still. To quote Nathan Explosion: "That's my bread and butter you're fucking with."
