Live From PAX '08: Fallout 3 Falls Out of PAX

The Exploding Barrel's Mark Fujii is live at PAX to report a massive disappointment with Fallout 3. Hey at least there were puppets...right?

QUOTE:
"Despite Fallout 3 being more or less the premier showpiece for PAX, hundreds of gamers were turned away from the Bethesda presentation with little more than a half-hearted apology and a Fallout cardboard decoration to console our broken hearts. While I got a chance to play the Fallout 3 demo earlier today, I really wanted to go to the presentation. What really irked me even more than the fact that I ended up standing in line for hours for absolutely nothing was the fact that those who did get to attend were rewarded with the Penny Arcade Fallout 3 puppet and poster which are quite possibly the coolest and most awesome piece of free swag at PAX." (Culture, PS3, Xbox 360)

I guess I'm a "soft" core gamer too
Considering I have GTA 4 for the 360 and will not be buying that dlc. The game was dull enough as it is to the point that I still haven't beaten it. No way in hell I'm paying extra for dlc for that game

???? Nobody said this game was ever boring.
It's not Ninja gaiden II action oriented thank God. But the action is just right. Perfectly implemented and different at each and every turn.

That's a little worrisome
This game seemed to bore many people at E3 as well (myself included) Graphics were great in all. But graphics alone don't make a good game. During the game play I was quite bored with what I saw at that time.

I'm not sure what they saw at PAX, but if it was anything like the E3 showing, then I can understand why people would turn away from this game.

Eh? The gameplay demos at gametrailers.com were spectacular.

Lots more dialogue choices than Oblivion (a surprise for anyone who expected something closer to it), quests with actual in-game consequences (wiping an entire town off the map!), minigames that actually make sense (such as lockpicking and hacking), and quite possibly the best melee weapon ever to exist, the power fist!

I wonder what they saw differently over there...

Edit: Oh, and while I remember, sticking LIVE FRAG GRENADES in people's pockets!

Looks like somebody's looking for hits. "Hey what shall we do? How about badmouthing the best game of E3?". Try previews from real sites like GameSpy or at least ScrewAttack not someone looking for hits.
