UP AND ATEM
Now is about the time to get properly excited about Bethesda’s Fallout 3, as evidenced by these five excellent new gameplay videos.
As expected, there’s more than a little Oblivion stuffed in there which might upset some of the more purist Fallout fans, but is precisely why this game is worth getting excited about. Bethesda have made two undisputed modern day master-classes in free roaming RPGs with Morrowind and Oblivion and the idea of them taking up the reigns of another brilliant RPG series, complete with a drastically different setting, is mouth watering. The real proof, of course, will be in the playing, but so far I’m seeing a what looks like a great conversation system, a surprisingly un-clunky UI (considering the piece of shit we got with Oblivion and some beautiful graphics (that explosion in the last video is brilliant) so… here’s hoping.
Frankly, any game which promises that “you can choose from a ludicrously long list of beards” has my full support.
