Kotaku: "On the last day of E3 last week before coming home and getting violently ill I had a chance to sit down with 30 minutes of Bethesda's Fallout 3. Technically it was supposed to be more like 20 minutes, as they were running behind and I had an appointment coming up, but Fallout 3 is one of those games where 30 minutes passes in the blink of an eye and then Bethesda's Pete Hines has to pry the controller out of your hands. I think I spotted a crowbar behind their booth, just in case.
I got to wander around the shattered landscape, poking at rubble, shooting at people, and trying on clothes. I got my first hands-on taste of the VaultTech Assisted Targeting system, which allows you to pause the action, choose where your bullets are heading on your target's body, and then plays through in slow motion - and there is nothing sweeter than a slow-motion exploding head. It was all very exciting, but as I took a moment to gaze about the room I realized that the most exciting thing about Fallout 3 is what everyone else was doing."
