IGN writes: "The ruins of Washington DC and the Capital Wasteland can be a daunting place: raiders, ghouls and mutant wildlife roam the landscape looking for victims. The few survivors, leery of outsiders, are potential threats with a careless word or pistol drawn. Even worse for a character that's never seen this harsh world after the nuclear war of 2077, trying to track down your father is like searching for a needle in a radioactive haystack buried in rubble. However, in Fallout 3, players will have the opportunity to explore this post-apocalyptic world, making their fate in a vast, expansive adventure. Although we've been following some of the events within the game in our coverage of Fallout 3 week, I had a chance to check out Fallout 3 on the PS3 recently at a press event to see what kind of heroics (or trouble) I could get myself into."
