Vault 101 – Jewel of the Wastes. For 200 years, Vault 101 has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you’ve ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

They've truly changed the gameplay completely, but it's good they've kept the black humor/still rude theme in their games cool.gif

Yep. Not buying this. Coupled with this it's enough to make me easily sidestep this one.

I like how half the people who are angry at the Fallout devs are the same people who played and enjoyed Oblivion even though it was pretty terribad and "dumbed down" for console gamers compared to the likes of Morrowind.

Exactly, Fallout III looks like it's just going to be another one of those extremely dumbed down compared to it's predecessors games.

Trows glares at Bioshock and Oblivion




Edit: Plus... switching between first and third person a 'key feature'?
Get the f*ck out of here.

I think it looks good, sure this is coming from someone who hated Fallout1 and 2's gameplay mechanics but loved the post-apocalyptic 50's style future with the black humour and whatnot. I think its good that it isn't simply some FPS version and they have tried to offer something different that is entirely up to the player.

Haven't played the previous games, so I cant really compare this to them. But from what I've seen it looks pretty promising. Just have to watch a few more reviews and vids before I decide to get it though.

Would of I had to play the previous games to make sense of this? Might be hard to answer since nobody has played it. Just wondering if its like TES, same system etc, but new story with a few connections.

It's completely different compared to the first two games.

You should play the old games, they are absolutely amazing BUT do not think of Fallout 3 is the next in the series or else you'll end up hurting, lol.

Just imagine it as Stalker clone #23242

The trouble is, as a stand alone game, it just looks bland as hell.

The manual combat looks really really bad, the features they're hyping up are not really that exciting at all.

The trailer made me go holy sh*t but the gameplay vids are pretty bland confused.gif they keep showing off that sh*tty rocket launcher and that one tiny area.

I'm 100% sure it's going to be another game like Bioshock/Oblivion, fun for the first few hours and then just boring and repetitive but if it's better than stalker then i'll be happy.

The combat looks horrible, but until we get a look at the core gameplay elements, we'll never know how the game turns out.

Combat was never that big in Fallout. You never actually had to kill anybody, at least not with your own hands. I'm hoping Fallout 3 is the same, not just some huge "blow sh*t up and dismember people" gorefest that they're trying to pass it off as.

Honestly? It's not as bad as I thought it'd be.

I mean, I like quite a few things they're doing. When I first heard they were putting in mini-games for things like lockpicking I was worried they were going to do the same thing as Oblivion: you could pick the hardest of locks with an extremely low lock picking stat. They've actually changed that though so there's a skill check before you can try lockpicking or hacking, and the mini-games themselves make more sense. If they actually manage to make it so these mini-games don't get tedious after a while like they do in every other game - decryption "push the buttons" mini-game in Mass Effect, f*ck you especially - kudos to them.

Environments looks great. This is one of Bethesda's stronger points so I'm not surprised, and they have shown in Morrowind and Shivering Isles that they can make interesting and varied landscapes so there's hope it won't be repetitive.

Combat... looks pretty meh. It seems like they didn't know what to go with: real-time or turn-based, so they're trying to merge them both together... and I'm not sure how that's going to work. It's something that you need to play to have a proper verdict on, but so far it doesn't look so good. The thing is, like Statutory Ray said, combat was never that big in past Fallouts; It was important, but the dialogue and quest choices were moreso. So I want to see the dialogue, and I want to see some examples of questlines with good choices. Bethesda has promised that they've kept to this - even saying that there's 40,000 lines of dialogue - so that gives some hope in those areas. I really wish they showed some during the gameplay trailer because we've seen enough of the combat. The screenshots are pretty much dominated by it.

Well, that post came out pretty long. To put it basically: I've still got hope for it. It's definitely not what Fallout 3 should've been, but it can still be a good sequel. Can. Whether or not it will be, time will tell. I don't think it's fair to claim it to be "Oblivion with guns" just yet because we still know little about some of the main gameplay elements.

On an added note I wish they'd stop hyping up the f*cking gore so much. You'd think it was the only thing that mattered.

Todd Howard seems a bit like a child, he's been going on about the bloody mess perk ever since they bought the IP..

I think the environment seems like it'll be the biggest downer. The concept art looked nice, it looked a bit 'barter town' and 'den', at least some of it.. But some again hinted at this grey blandness.

Fallout isn't grey, it's desert. It's Mad Max coupled with crazy 50's pulp. This looks like Gears of War with crazy 50's pulp. I guess it was bound to happen when they chose such a silly location for it too..

just been looking around the games for windows site and i came across this. it would seem that Fallout 3 (pc) is Live enabled, meaning you can get achievements on a live account. add players mods and a cheaper retail price and it looks like i may be getting the PC version.

I got the mini guide, it's not really much at all. The ad also said the mini guide had a coupon to bring the regular guide down from $20 to $10. I figured I'd come back and get that if I decided to get it, but when I got home and looked at the coupon, it just says 25% off the guide. Not sure how that works.

I just got out of the vault. I have no idea where to go. The first time I turned right and ran into some giant scorpion thing and got owned. I reloaded and went left, found some houses with stuff inside the mailboxes. Just entered into some school and then quit since I have to get up for work in a few hrs.

I like it so far. VATS is pretty cool. My only gripe so far is I wish the writing on the pip boy was bigger since I sit pretty far back from TV, it's kind of hard to read.

Also digging the patriotic music on the Enclave radio station.

That’s all I need to know.

I pre-ordered this game a while back having never played the first two. Absolutely no idea what to expect but the concept is something I really like and from what I’ve seen so far it looks fairly well executed. I’ve seen some of the official trailers with the voice over from Todd >insert surname here< and he’s everything I expected and want a game designer to be. A big nerdy 30 something kid who laughs at his own jokes! How can you go wrong with a big nerdy 30 something kid?… who laughs at his own jokes!!

Answer. You can’t.

I have been waiting for this since it was announced. I loved Oblivion so I hope Bethesda did something great with this game. I've never played the 1st two games so it should be a fresh start. I read a couple of reviews and this game seems to be praised so I pre-ordered my copy earlier in the week. Hope it arrives tomorrow biggrin.gif.

Can you take everything off dead enemies bodies like in Oblivion? Such as armour and weapons?

I actually wandered to about 4 different locations before I found Megaton, which I found right before I quit.

Blowing fools up with grenades is so satisfying. At one raider spot, I found 5 or 6 raiders clustered around beating a guy with nail boards, and I discovered them from a ledge about 25 feet above them so they didn't see me. At first, I killed them all individually to save the guy but then it turned out the guy that they were beating up was also a raider (wtf?) so I reloaded and threw a nade into the middle of them and blew the crap out of all of them at once. So sick.

So far I've got: 10m pistol, hunting rifle, 10m submachine gun, sawed off shotgun
