Big Download was able to get Bethesda Softworks PR head Pete Hines on the horn briefly to answer some post-gone gold questions about the game as well as some other topics.
BD: Many fans of the first two Fallout games have wondered if Bethesda Softworks will retain at least some of the spirit of the original titles in Fallout 3? Do you believe you and the development team have accomplished this task?
PH: We certainly have, but our feelings on that aren't any different now than the were before. It's something we've worked hard to include and maintain, but at the same time everyone is entitled to their own opinion on what that is and whether we've retained it, so we'll have to see once the game comes out.
