PSU Fallout 3 Preview from E3 2008

PSU writes: "Fallout shelters are great, aren't they? They're always packed to the brim with awesome canned foods and powdered milk. What more could you possibly hope for? Not much, except for an awesome videogame to occupy your time. I had the chance today to test the latest installment to the Fallout franchise, Fallout 3. Developed by Bethesda, Fallout 3 utilizes a vast world much like that of Elder Scrolls with the exception of a nuclear holocaust instead of lush forests. I'll get this out of the way right now - I am unable to discuss load screens, quest directives, achievements (irrelevant for us), and perks. I am allowed to talk to you guys about pretty much everything else, unfortunately that ends up being very minimal considering I only had 24 minutes to fool around with the game."

The story is too old to be commented.

Im just curious....To people who play these sorts of games, im a massive fan of post apocalyptic worlds...But in these RPG's is there much of a storyline...does it reach a climax does it work?

Edit: oh no i understand that, its just....Is the storyline strong throughout with an epic ending or ?? because in these types of games you sorta build the character cant really use your character in the story much (personality wise) how does the climax approach to these kinds of games...or do they just sorta die out?

Fallout 1 & 2 had a great, interconnected story. In Fallout 2 your character is a descendant of the protagonist from Fallout 1. Fallout 2 takes place 80 years after the end of the first one. The climax of the first is epic and appropriate...the climax of the second is the same. Both games are very non-linear though. You can fight your way through or use diplomacy. There are certain things you have to do in order to advance the story but there are multiple ways of completing each task. You can pretty much do whatever you want in between tasks though including multiple side quests.

Give them a shot, you won't be disappointed.
