An RPG from the makers of Elder Scrolls: Oblivion set in a post-apocalyptic Washington, DC.
Oh yeah and the load times that plagued ES: O are virtually nil in Fallout 3. I've only been able to play for a few hours last night and plan to restart when I get play tonight. It looks like I'm gonna have to reorganize my skill points. I checked the ign.com beginner's guide and I think my classic thief/nerd/hacker/sniper/treasure hunter is going to do a lot better in this game than in Oblivion. One aspect I really dig is that a higher intelligence gives all of your skills a boost. Of course if I wanted to play some kind of dreadnought I could do that too.
Another fun thing about Fallout 3 it is going to be the perfect game to listen to the Six-String Samurai soundtrack while playing. Boogie boogie on the beach indeed.
Once the initial pants-wetting is over I will attempt to give Fallout 3 a more in-depth review.
"Goodnight America and good luck."
I was joking that the player character's father in the game sounded like Liam Neeson - well mocking actually - "Lookit me, I'm your father, oh oh oh, I sound like a Liam Neeson knock-off, oh oh oh." Yeah...well...you see...it actually is Liam Neeson.
and Ron Perlman as the narrator - doing a much better job than he did in the Conan game...
and Malcolm McDowell is the voice of the President
So, apologies gentlemen. Awesome work.
