IGN: Fallout 3 Progress Report

War, as the intro to Fallout 3 tells us, never changes. And for much of the last year, the information that IGN had on Fallout 3 itself hadn't changed, as Bethesda Softworks kept a low profile as it worked on what is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year. But now Bethesda is looking to break radio silence, and IGN jumped at the chance to see the latest progress on this epic single-player role-playing game set in a memorable post-apocalyptic world. So buckle up, and IGN will describe what was at a demonstration of the game this week.

The story is too old to be commented.

Given Bethesda's track record, this game will push both systems to the limit and welcome repeated plays.

Easily one of my top 5 most wanted games, and you can't call yourself a hardcore gamer if you're not at least slightly excited for this monster.

But still a bit skeptical. The first 2 Fallout's are pretty big shoes to fill. I'm worried about the dialog trees in Fallout 3...what I've seen hasn't been very deep. I'll definitely buy it though.

MK_Red3841d ago

I'm with you Captain Tuttle and GameSpy's report made me more worried.

Todd Howard said it himself "We can not screw this up"... well, he better be right because I'll sneak in to their base and rip them all in half with my trusty plasma refile.

No doubt doped up on Mentats and Buffout : )

never played a Fallout but this one looks awesome so far.

okcomputer3841d ago

Same here, never played either of the first two. But if it actually is "oblivion with guns" and a better storyline and setting like the article says, then I'm pretty much sold.

Captain Tuttle3841d ago (Edited 3841d ago )

If you guys can find them on e-Bay or in the bargain bin pick them up. They're fantastic games. Great storytelling.

TheKungFool3841d ago

I'm glad to see that even with all the dev companies closing, merging, suffering hostile take-overs and such that some of the best series will still be rockin'.

"Fallout 3" is looking good, and from what I've read and heard we're also likely to see another "Thief" and "Deus Ex" game.

Gorgon3841d ago

The Deus Ex game is not a rumor, is confirmed.

MK_Red3841d ago

Man... I'd kill for another Thief game. Original was godlike and the sequels were pretty great games.

socomnick3841d ago

Goty if Gears of war 2 doesnt take it.

Ridrick3841d ago

Bethesda always delivers decent rpgs. Great visuals, big open worlds and good gameplay. Althrough biggest problem with games like Morrowind and Oblivion was always flat, dull scenario.

And scenario is what made Fallout games legendary. Not graphics.

Hope that guys at Bethesda knows what they doing.

MK_Red3841d ago

Mostly agreed though I don't think Morrowind was that bad. Sure it was flat compared to classic RPGs and nowhere near Fallout 1 & 2 but it was a rather different RPG.
Oblivion though was a POS compared to real RPGs. It was a decent game but big fall for TES series.

Hopefully Bethesda doesn't screw Fallout 3.
