Bethesda Softworks released a bacth of new Fallout 3 screenshots. Enjoy.
I love Bethesda's graphics for the game. I think Black Ilse would be proud.
Relcom, bubbles for you my friend though I don't think this could ever satisfy the geniuses of ex-Black Isle. Only God knows how awesome their original Fallout 3 could have been.
i dunno...its kinda looking bland :/ but from what ive read of the series and of this game i def gonna check it out anyways. as long as the gameplay is top notch :D
Looks alright. It's a shame though (myself included) that the first thing that attracts us to a game a lot of times is the graphics.
From what I have read the gameplay is gonna S_W_E_E_T!!! The graphics look pretty good from what little I can tell. Are the screens from the 360 version or the PC version?
marinelife.... the same is true for when we pick a mate. :D
haha now thats a headshot :P
I absolutely love the post-apocalyptic genre.
A Boy and His Dog, Mad Max, Threads are all interesting studies that cross man vs. man with man vs. nature. People in a common situation that causes them to fight, I can believe that kind of motivation because it seems more rational (survival).
Fallout is a wonderful kind of game world. I look forward too it, and am glad that its Multi-Plat, so we can all enjoy it.
Definatly hope this game reaches all types of gamers. The old one's were classics for sure, and this one is shaping up to do the same
Actually, Mad Max was the main inspiration for Fallout 1 and so was A Boy and His Dog to a lesser extend. The leather jacket for main character is exactly the same as MM2: Road Warrior's as well as his car and dog :)
Bubbles for both of you and hopefully, this could indeed be another classic worthy of the name Fallout.
...the status of Rogue Warrior? Did it get cancelled/postponed, in favor of Fallout 3?
im not to sure but i am guessing they still have a few people on it but most of the designers are probably working on fallout at this time. I am almost certain that we will hear something about rouge warrior sometime in the next 2 months.
But is Fallout 3 suppose to be a first person action/adventure or in third person? The screenshots look sweet and I'm kind of new to this franchise.
you will have the option
It's more prefrence than anything
"first person action/adventure or in third person"
Dude, neither. It is not action or adventure game. It's an RPG with free camera. You can zoom out so much that game looks isometric in vein of originals! Or go first person to aim for specific body part and a gory cinematic.
Bubbles for helpful responses.
Fallout 3 will be a big game..
You're right! It looks better! : )
speaking of choice , what view is everyone else going to play it in ?
POV? I'm going for 3rd person--not just because the original Fallouts were 3rd person, but largely because I like it better. I used to play Oblivion in 3rd (even though it's 3rd person is HORRIBLE and really hard to play with without mods). I feel like you get to know your character better--you get to really care what he looks like, what his personality is, etc. And combat is more like a movie, then.
It looks pretty, but what does that count for? I am still very worried that Bethesda doesn't understand what Fallout is about, and that this game is going to be a big disappointment. The release of Mass Effect has made it worse--Mass Effect was fun, but the non turn-based combat was just silly (not to mention INCREDIBLY easy). Besides, the die-hard fans of the series all agree Fallout calls for excessive gore--sure, we've seen heads being blown off of SUPER MUTANTS, but we haven't seen them being blown off of ordinary people, and so far I haven't seen my favorite part of Fallout, where a person gets riddled with bullets. (plus, the super mutants look like magical orcs that belong in a fantasy game, not like deranged, mutated humans of a post-acopaclyptic world.)
I've never heard of the Fallout series can some one fill me in on the story and what type of game it is?
The first two Fallout games, not including the spin-offs, are CRPGs. Fallout 3, however, will be more of an action game since that will help them sell more copies. (Many fans of the original Fallout games are upset about the direction this series is heading.)
Well said TheIneffableBob.
As for the story, the west and east destroy themselves in a full nuclear war though both were prepared and had made huge and multiple underground vaults so humanity could take shelter in them. The war begins and world is destroyed. For many years, no one dares to leave the vaults.
Fallout 1 takes place in Vault 13 which is suffering water shortages thanks to malfunctional water producing chip. One man is chosen to leave the vault and venture into the wastelands, go to another vault and bring a back up waterchip back. But as soon as he leaves the vault, the main character realises that this is a new world and more of an abandoned hell. There've been many people who couldn't make it to the vaults and also, those that came out of their vaults earlier. A lot happens to him...
But in Fallout 2, a horroble secret is reaveled. The US goverment had stationed itself in a rig in the ocean and away from all the trouble. The secret is that the vaults were not supposed to be for good of mankind and protecting them. No... they were test labs for the goverments. With thousands of humans as test subjects. Different and unique psycological and medical tests were performed. One vault consisted of only one male in middle of hundreds of females. Another one is the opposite with all men with only one woman. In another vault mental gasses were released and in another, deseases. Vaults had become the sick playground of mad scientists.
It was more than ironic in some places. For example, in Fallout 2, player gets to one vault in a Vault City and finds hundreds and hundreds of Waterchip cargos while we know that lack of even 1 back up waterchip was killing people in Vault 13.
Not exactly what I was expecting after seeing the preview of this game in an earlier Game Informer. But based on the openess of this game the graphics look pretty darn good.
this is turning out to be better than i expected really! I wasn't to big on the previous games just because i grew up as a fps kind of person but now as games are giving me the choice between 3rd and 1st person play i have noticed playing through games in both aspects turn the game around and give alot more depth into personality. In one play through you feel as if your are fighting for yourself (1st person)and the other you see the person you are and what he/or she is all about..........if that makes any sense at all. In other words looks good cant wait to take it for a test run. ( pre-ordering NOW!)
I hear Fallout 3 won't be as big as Oblivion in scale BUT will make up for this by giving the player more decision based choices throughout the games story! So several players will have a different experience when playing the game.
Can't wait! FALL O8
I am never to worried about how long or big a game is as long as after i finish the game i want to play again and even after that i still have interest not only on online but through the campaign again. Game play and story is what its all about for me. And it doesn't look like i will be disappointed.
Well, it may not be that big but it has indeed a huge amount of replay vaule. Having 11 different endings doesn't hurt either :)
I can feel the apocalyptic feel of the game by the color and surroundings.
