Screenies!








Looks like they still haven't gotten over their bloom fetish. Hopefully they'll have that cleaned up by release.

That last screenshot is discomforting to me, I'll be honest.  It looks like that guy in the power suit (if that's what it is) is a star wars stormtrooper and the first person perspecting seems too much like a gameplay device rather than simply another point of view for dramatic effect.

I'm more annoyed by the fact that the Super Mutants are just Orcs and Cave Trolls.

Meh, I'm gonna end up enjoying it one way or the other.

Blegh. It's oblivion meets star wars. Ah well, might be a decent game if I scribble out the word fallout on the box and replace it with 'generic shooter'.

Also, turns out that screenie I posted WAS zoomed in. Fourth one down has him.

The power armor looks like storm trooper armor, the vault suit is reminiscent of the rebel alliance uniforms, and the whole cheesy feel to it all just makes me think Star Wars.

I think it depends on if you played Fallout 2 first or if at all. The first one's humor is pitch black, for the most part while the second one has a lot more pop culture references, easter eggs and a lighter tone overall.

Certainly. In most playthroughs you'll get at least one special Monty Python encounter. Plus, talking scorpions / plants and the like. The fanbois have a point in that Black Isle deviated quite a bit from the first game in tone, but overall I thought it stayed consistent enough. Those first few playthroughs it didn't matter. It's still an excellent game in spite of the somewhat frequent bad ideas.

Agreed; I've actually played Fallout 2 more than the first. Fallout 1 was an indelible experience, but there was more stuff to goof around with in the second, and I think there was a certain amount of wisdom involved with switching things up. Fallout 1 nailed the mythos perfectly, I think, and I really wasn't sure they had anywhere else to go after its completion; the story already had an excellent ending, the kind that the setting's internal logic demanded, which ironically is something we so rarely get to enjoy due to the kneejerk impulse to staple on a happy ending or artificial sense of closure. I guess I'm saying that Fallout 1 was so satisfying for me that it felt perfectly natural to treat the sequel as more of a highly enjoyable victory lap than a true successor. I wasn't in any way disappointed either; I mean, shit, I got to shoot a pissed off super intelligent mutant rat in the balls with a shotgun. Good times.

The Monty Python references, Mad Max cameos, troll/ogre super mutants, and general lunacy don't matter. They can deviate from the main games in any way they want. First person, third person, 3D, sprites... but there's one thing they can never change.

War. War never changes.

Yes.  I want turn-based action-point CRPG action, goddamn it.  There hasn't been many good CRPGs in this millenia, and a throwback to things that were genuinely witty AND difficult AND had good pacing would be awesome.  I'm burnt out on first person shooters what with all the good ones released this last year.  STALKER, Orange Box, Call of Duty 4, Bioshock?  I don't want Fallout: Oblivion.  I want Fallout 3.

Understand where my forboding sense of dread comes from?

Don't get me wrong.  Oblivion was very fun and I enjoyed it.  Repainting it with the Fallout universe (which they've significantly altered from the look of it) would really irk my chain.

Oh and about Star Wars:  Seriously, tell me that guy in the power armor in that photo doesn't look like a Dark Trooper from the old Star Wars: Dark Forces game.

Exactly. That style of game is dead largely because technology and subsequently the market has moved beyond it. Whatever the fuck it's called (and I might be biased here because I've never played the first two), if it's a good game then who cares? As far as I'm concerned, Fallout 3 addresses every problem I had with Oblivion (dull combat, an extremely generic fantasy setting and surrounding fiction, and the totally broken levelling system), and fixes it. So I'm excited.

He's actually referring to what was promised by Bethesda, namely that third-person would be a viable perspective for playing the game. What he's saying is, it looks like that's not the case.

I didn't mind Aliens, dig?
This isn't a property passing hands from Ridley Scott to James Cameron. This is a property changing hands from Kubrick to Brett Ratner.

But why? Why would you want a throwback when we're living in a different decade? Games have come pretty damn far since Fallout, dude. The series is allowed to move with the times, and it's entitled to, whether fans like it (based, by the way, entirely on advance press) or not.
That argument only goes so far. What we're taking issue with is Bethsoft fixing what isn't broken, or more accurately, defacing what's perfect. For some, it's isometric perspective or turn-based combat, something that I don't really take issue with, although SPECIAL is built around turn-based gameplay and stands to be significantly altered. I mostly care about the aesthetic laid down by Boyarski that enraptured me so much as a child, which looks like it's being scrapped where all other aspects of the game seem to be getting some sort of Bethsoft attention.

And there's also dialogue and its trees, something integral to Fallout's gameplay, and something that Bethesda hasn't touched in any form for at least 12 years.

I mean, if you want to argue that the type of game that Bethsoft makes is better than the type of game Fallout is, then that's fine.

IN ORDER:

In theory, you could play Metal Gear Solid 3 almost entirely from a third-person perspective. However, it doesn't really look like that's not the case since there's the one shot from a first person perspective.

Yeah, except Ridley Scott -> James Cameron actually happened. We can speculate all we want but the fact is that the franchise changed hands. Rather than bitch and moan about it, we should maybe wait to see what happens? Who knows, one of us could lead a charmed life and as a result we'll all be pleasantly surprised.

The aesthetic does look a bit different, which is basically the biggest thing I'll concede to you - the vaccuum-tube charm of the games is remarkably tough to nail down, though, and frankly I'm willing to give Bethseda credit for simply trying.

And because I promised it,

What I take issue with is that people blame Bethesda for the fact that they aren't getting a 'true' Fallout 3 when they should be blaming Interplay. Basically, aside from their RPG wing, every publishing decision they made was shit. Not just mediocre, but fully shit. (Well, except for Descent if you're into that type of thing.) On top of that, their management had no fucking idea how to run a goddamn business or treat their employees properly. Interplay were the people who put the knife in the old Fallout style, not Bethesda. Nobody was going to make a Fallout game in the style of 1 and 2 when Interplay's festering corpse finally decided to sell the rights off because as we said before, the technology had moved beyond it. The only platform where I think that genre even has a possibility of coming back is the DS, and you know people would have bitched if they had put it there even if the gameplay was fundamentally similar.

Certainly Herve Caen is responsible for the dissolution of Black Isle (along with Westwood and several other studios) but they are a non-entity now, for all intents and purposes. Bethesda is fully in control. What they do with the property is fully their responsibility.

Btw, new version of The Fallout 2 Restoration Project is out, adds some new fixes.

Executive Producer Todd Howard's given some updates.

 - Apparently the game is finished, as far as "expanding the borders of the game" go. It still needs to be filled in and polished. They're saying Fall '08 is a "definite".

 - The game is twice as long as they had originally planned. As big as Oblivion, 20 hour main plotline, 100 hours or so all told.

 - 1 NPC companion at any one time, not including Dogmeat.

He actually never said that it was as big as Oblivion, he said in the recent OXM podcast that it isn't as big as Oblivion. He said the game is definitely much larger than they originally planned, but it really isn't close to the immense world of Oblivion.
The game is larger because of the over 200 endings that they currently are working with in the game. That is something he did say.

You do realize that the 200 endings are probably more along the lines of 200 variations of 8 - 12 (a perfectly solid number of endings as long as they don't suck) endings right? In essence a complete and total bullshit claim?

Still, it shows that they do care, at least somewhat. If they were just in it for the money they could have just given it one ending (and the vault dweller killed them all and lived happily ever after).

I think the fact they bought a very very niche cult classic franchise and were ecstatic to make a sequel shows that more than making a total bullshit claim.

Making a bullshit claim like that just means he's talking in Peter Molyneux native language, which is never a good thing.

I'm just here to say this.
I was playing Oblivion the other day and thought, this is a lot like Fallout. 
Don't even ask me why, but somehow I thought, Fallout. 
Free roaming, do your own quests, get to know the people.  Travel from town to town, completely free to go where you want, when you want.
I don't know, to me that was the essence of Fallout.  It was never JUST about ___Punk whatever whatever.  I mean, that stuff just takes a graphics artists.  It was about the atmosphere and the gameplay.

I'll give you humour and memorable characters, but oblivion really has a cool plot and it's atmosphere is really engrossing in my opinion.  Course, when you accidently get someone killed and loot his body, and rob his house, I can't help but chuckle in a distinctly Fallout way.  Sort of like placing explosives on merchants after robbing them blind.  It's wrong, but funny.

I definately agree.  The settings, artistry and music were just supurb.  The sex skill was sadening though lol

The Fallout 3 debate actually reminds me of the debates about Fallout 2, Baldur's Gate 2 or shit even Half Life 2, everyone expected those games to be pathetic pale shadows of their predecessors and it never came true. Everyone just wants Fallout 3 to be abysmal just so they can prove to everyone they loved the original games more and always have done so they can seem smarter than most people. As for Bethesda doing a good job with the story sure I might not be that optimistic, but the main reason why the characterisation in Oblivion was so poor was because they spent all there time making a totally new engine, with more time I doubt it will be quite so feeble, and the main storyline of Morrowind wasn't to bad either. I don't expect the storytelling to be in the same league as Fallout 1 or 2, but I can say that of any game that has been announced in the last year and they weren't mercilessly crucified. And another thing too, the action is going to be better; I don't care if it's shallow, an RPG videogame is still a videogame, not a table top RPG, and I wan't it to play like one. The same goes for people complaining about it being 3D, an extra dimension doesn't make a bad game, bad design does. If it comes out and you think it's just horrible then I'll accept your opinion, but complaining before the fact is just ridiculous.

Is there any idea how it compares between systems?

I'm still undecided on whether to get it for 360 or PS3.

I don't want Fallout: Oblivion.  I want Fallout 3.

Unfortunately I haven't played either of the first two Fallout games & really enjoyed Oblivion.  From what you guys have been saying in my RPG thread I would love Fallout: Oblivion, so please excuse me if I seem a little chipper about all of this.

From what I've seen the problem isn't that it's Fallout:Oblivion (which would be pretty good), it'd be Oblivion:Generic Post-Apocalyptic Setting.

bethesda don't seem the right people to do a fallout game but they couldn't do any worse in ruining the fallout name than interplay by the end of the line (fallout: POS for PS2 and xbox demonstrate that much). i'll still be pissed if it's crap. *revs up chainsaw and heads for the interplay head office*

There is a thriving business in crap movies & crap books, too - does that mean we should be happy some people are working to the lowest common denomenator?
I actually think I'm going to enjoy the game, but I won'tfill in the blanks of "200 endings" & other airy promises with blind trust.

For clarification, the way the 200 endings works is based off of the original 9-12.  Minor and major changes happen to those endings based on your choices in the game, and there's a fuckton of choices, so they got up to 204 (I think) before they said 'stop, we've gotten carried away with ourselves'.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s was pretty cool.

In many ways, stalker was pretty damn similar to Fallout.
