New Fallout 3 Screens

The kind folks at Bethesda sent me some new Fallout 3 screens, I guess in order to stoke my already raging game boner. Seriously, this is like gaming Viagra for me with the side effect of an extremely prolonged erection. It looks like you can make called shots if the image to the left is any indication. I have to say that I think they definitely have nailed the feel of the game world. the graphics are highly reminiscent of the old Fallout games. I guess that is the relatively easy part though. Gameplay and content will be the real judge. It has been years since I played Fallout 2 and like anything else the memories are heightened by a great deal of nostalgia. This is going to be another one of those times where I have to make up my mind about whether I want the game on PC or 360. I won't buy both like I did with Oblivion you bastards! I know that the lead development platform is the 360, but the great memories all come from the PC and I think it will be much easier to control with a mouse. Mods will be readily available for the PC and if the past is any indication they will be some great work by inspired people. Here are a couple more shots to whet your appetite.

UPDATE: Here is a picture of what the collector's edition will contain:

Oooooohh boy. This game has me all hot and bothered.

I was a big fan of the previous fallout games but they were all a RTS, strategic combat style game. I guess they're breaking away from this a bit now eh?

Oh well. I wish they would release some more information about it. They're being terribly tight lipped.

I also just found out that Interplay is making Fallout 1 and 2 available on Gametap!

Bildo said...

Yep... buying that.

Damn, with the WAR CE and this one I'll suddenly have a lot of extra junk lying around my office this Fall.

hmmm the pessimistic side of me thinks that Gametap will wait until just before are right at the release of Fallout 3 to release Fallout 1 and 2. At that point I will be too busy playing Fallout 3. I want to play the other two now!
