Horny Melon: Fallout 3 Review

After a ten year absence (we are ignoring the travesties BOF and Tactics) a new Fallout game has dropped. Brought back to life by Bethesda as a FPS first person perspective roleplaying game. For those that have been living out in the woods, the fallout series takes place 200 years after a nuclear war.

"The issue we have is the lack of 1080p support for the PS3. All the cool developers are now able to produce games in 1080p. There is no excuse, other than they didn’t want to take the time."
That made me laugh. Durgh, they must think it's just about taking the time to produce something as complicated as Fallout 3 with a good frame rate in 1080p..

Also shame about:
Online: 0/10
This generation of consoles there is no excuse for a lack of online component. Throughout the game you can have a companion and with the limited amount of ammo co-op seems a no brainer

1080p. 2k games with bioshock, EA with dead space, Kojima with MGS, Insomniac games resistance 2, ubisoft with farcry 2. Fallout uses a newer version of a two year old engine. 2k games managed it with one that is one year old.

As for the second part. Games cost more, the consoles cost more. The gamer was sold these costs on the ability to play online with friends and to build communities. So far only about a third of games live up to this. What we have gotten though is buggy software (e.g. Fallout 3 and Fable, LBP) "because it can be patched later" and parts of the game shaved off and sold as DLC. Why should they get a pass?

none of those games you mentioned are 1080p native. Maybe upscaled but definitely not native. Also some games such as this need to stay as single player experiences adding a lazi multiplayer section might hurt and take away resources best utilized on the single player.

states they are 1080p native on the back of the box or on the website.

you are right a lazy online component isn't acceptable either. A good and proper co-op, multiplayer is required.

Feel free to slap me but what happens on a PS3 if you try to run Fallout 3 in 1080p? Nothing? Or will the TV attempt to upscale it? (I own a 32" 720p plasma)

From what I have read, if a game can be upscaled from the native resolution to say 1080p on a TV, then they can put 1080p on the back of the box, but in reality there are few console games that are truly 1080p. I know I found a website somewhere that rated all games on consoles with their real resolution, MGS4 was not 1080, and I remember one of the only 360 games to be native 1080 was Top Spin 3.

Sorry if I go find the site I will link it.

of games that is current. None even go to this year. I have my PS3 set to upscale and it plays Fallout 3 fine. I don't think they are allowed to put that on the back of the box if it would upscale as the references to 1080p on the back of the box specificly states the need for HDMI cable for native 1080p displaying.

Take the time? Obviously, you don't know Fallout 3 was in development for 3 years.
