Crispy Gamer: Fallout 3 Preview - Bethesda gives a detailed of their post-apocalyptic future, and it's looking pretty sweet

Crispy Gamer writes: "The day you're born, you find yourself awake, startled, staring down a man in a doctor's mask. He tells you he's your father, says whether you're a boy or a girl, and gives you a name. Just then, something goes wrong and your mother dies. Your father leaves your side to help, but it's too late. She's gone. A year later, you're with your father again, now more aware of your surroundings. You live inside the nuclear bomb shelter Vault 101. Steel walls encase your existence, but you're naturally curious, venturing out of your confinement to explore this cold, metal world. The sad truth is that you cannot go beyond these walls. You can never go outside. The outside world is a dangerous place, practically a myth to the society dwelling within the Vault."

-Character creation system is really cool

-Combat mechanics seem very promising, but it's tough to say whether they'll hold up for 70+ hours
