2 new screenshots from Bethesda's upcoming PC, X360 and PS3 title Fallout 3.
People acted like it.
Its not xbox 360 exclusive they said that Xbox 360 is the lead platform.
these are bad screens, but then again they are zoomed in magazine pics so it's ok
MK_Red made me very interested in this series.
Glad I could help :)
And the shots indeed look zoomed in mag pics and not really good. Hopefully Bethesda releases better shots soon.
i wondered where you were MK_Red! =)
*EDIT Bah! I didn't see you MK_Red hunters below me*
Although these screens aren't the best quality around, I still think the game looks incredibly cool. I had a few reservations with the Oblivion style view but I think it's gonna be amazing. Very fond memories of the first 2 (especially the 2nd) It's nice to see (which I'm sure you're MORE than happy with!) that the gore looks intact. I wonder if people will still colapse in an explosion of bloody bits if you empty a full clip of ammo on them.
I think I remember a huge boat in the middle of a waste land when the first scans were released (wasn't this in a previous game?) does anyone have a link to that picture?
Thanks and OMG, Fallout 2 is also the one I had the most fun with. It's indeed sweet to have gore back. As for collapsing, mutants will have it but Bethesda hasn't made up it's mind about amount of violence and gore when killing normal non-mutant people. I also would love to see different death animations/ methods for different weapons. With laser refiles cutting people and creatures in different manners to hunting refile taking a chunk of their bodies out. Plus, a lot of gore effects were not shown in Fallout 2 and instead, they were described in text in lower left corner of screen. I wonder if some of them will happen here.
I also love the style even though I'm a bit worried.
As for the boat / ship image, here it is, along with some better / non-scan screens.
Looks like Fallout 3 will be more of a shooter than an RPG.
We had masive action shots of Mass Effect. Was it a 3rd person shooter like GRAW? No, it was a crazy and awesome RPG with action parts as well.
Same goes for Fallout 3. Even though I'm kinda disappointed with simpler and more action oriented path Bethesda is taking, I have faith in them that they'll make a decent RPG out of it that could be the best RPG in years. It will never come close to classic Fallout 1 & 2 in neither RPG elements, dialogue, black humor and other stuff but still, in our time were classic PC-RPGs are all but instinct, Fallout 3 could be much more.
This will be great on the Xbox 360
but better on PC.
Bethesda did say the 360 is the lead platform.
But.....FallOut was born on PC and Should stay the strongest on PC
dude even if a console is the "lead platform" (although all games are built or started on PC) it will still ALWAYS look better on PC, 16X AA, 1920X1080 need i go on?
ParaDise_LosT and mighty_douche are right. Fallout was BORN on PC.
And even though 360 is lead, we must not forget that this is Bethesda we're talking about who made the perfect port of Oblivion for both PS3 and PC. Sure, the PC version of Oblivion had UI problems but they've promised to use a more PC friendly and different UI in Fallout 3 for PC (Something like Morrowind).
No mods= Crap box. This is game is screaming for the PC. There is no way I'm buying this for the console.
this pics doesn't looks as good as i was expecting. maybe this are early developement pics. who knows.
i would like to know what mk (biggest fallout fan)thinks about this pics.
mk: your reply makes sense. scans never show the true quality of a game.
As ThaGeNeCySt said up there, these are low quality zoomed in scans from the magazine. I'm more than happy to see them but all of these pics are from November 2007 or older while the game won't be out until Q4 2008.
Those pics look f*cking horrible!
Wow the game looks like Max Payne 2..
Mk_Red should have been here by now. He's crazy for Fallout :) , on topic, its looking pretty decent to me.
Edit: Ah, there he is, good timing! ^_^
Yup, he's crazy and he's here. Thanks :)
I really think:
A. People should not judge a game solely based on graphics.
B. Even then, they should wait for the real footage shown before judging based on old low res mag scans.
this is true where is red!!!! lol defend your game!!!! lol they are hating on it!!!!!!!!!
O well im excited for it
NOEEZZZ These screens are better than Killzone 2 and Alan Wake combineD (Sarcasam ends)!!! LOLz
But really, it's stupid how people are judging a game by low res zoomed in magazine scans from 1-2 months ago (Yes, I saw them back in Oct-November). It's like the first mag scan of Killzone 2 that hit the net a couple of weeks before real E3 2007 showing and looked horrible.
As for my defense, I have done in couple of posts above :)
Also, I'm glad to see you're excited :)
Clock goes off :)
The pics look indeed decent but still, they are mag scans and are not really new (I saw them in October - November which hints they are from August build, game is not coming until Fall 2008).
Plus, it's an open world RPG taking place in a rotting post apocalyptic world. Before Gears, Resistance, Killzone 2 and all other greyish/ on colorish games, it was Fallout that introduced this unique graphical style.
Also a sad thing is how everyone is having doubts based on wrong things. Sure, there are a lot of ways to be doubtful about Fallout 3, mainly the change of devs from Black Isle to Bethesda and how Oblivion wasn't on par with Bethesda's real RPGs like Morrowind and Daggerfall but we must not judge so soon. There hasn't been a single gameplay footage. It's no longer isometric or fully turn-based and that alone is enough for a lot of fans to believe it won't be near the classics and I kinda feel the same but let's give Bethesda one last chance.
Thanks for the scans/screens.
EDIT: @ JokesOnYou
Thanks. I indeed love this game but it's mostly because Fallout 2 is my all time fave game.
As for Bethesda, I too have faith in them but hopefully they go a much deeper with Fallout 3 and take a more classical approach to it rather than simplifying and modernizing it as much as Oblivion.
EDIT 2: @ Blitzed
Even though they are bad quality pics, I don't see how people say they are terrible. Sure, they lack color and feel grayish but so do games like Resistance and Killzone 2. Fallout 3 has more right to be one colorish than all other games since the original post-apocalyptic and rather dead style belongs to Fallout franchise.
but as MK Red (damm he loves this game) has continued to point out their just zoom ins of pics from a mag, still I hate when people post terrible sh!tty pics of a game, I'd rather wait to see them when they release some high quality pics. Fallout 3 is one of the games, Iam really looking forward to, Bethesda is one of the few greats that have a special talent in this genre.
I think I would have rather not seen those screens. (relax MK I know they are zoomed in pics from a mag, its was just the initial let down I'm talking about)
This game looks like Fallout but as we all know it isn't Fallout, it's being made by Bethesda!! These guys don't produce finely honed rail RPGs like Bioware or Interplay, they're more of the create an open world then let the community made content fix all the flaws type of dev.
I'm going to call it right now. It's going to be crap without mods just like Oblivion was since they were both designed to be vanilla on all platforms. It took a few mods to make Oblivion the game it should've been and the same will be true for Fallout 3.
Those screen shots are TERRIBLE
I think Fallout 3 will be a masterpiece... and I'm afraid I'll lose myself in it.
Bye bye real life!
