Re: Fallout 3

Bailout 1 and Bailout 2 have been done, now people may be asking if Bailout 3 is on the way or not.

Re: Fallout 3

I read two European review already. The Swedish PC Gamer said it is Oblivion with guns after all. The other one said not it wasn't.

More info at nma No Mutants Allowed - Your Post Nuclear News Center!

And the ultimate irony, the xbox 360 version of fallout 3 has been pirated already. Why are developers so worried about the pc version?

This is indeed ironic as the developer mantra of late has been that PC piracy is responsible for the console-centric path so many are taking...

Re: Fallout 3

Man I'm really trying to go into this with an open mind... but... it... is... SOOOOO hard. I just hope they haven't truly made "Oblivion with Guns". An Oblivion mod basically. I need to step back and not think of this as a Fallout game. Just ignore the title and think of it as a FPS Post-Apocoliptic game. I guess we also have to see how infected this game is with Consolitis. That dreaded disease has been infecting so many PC games lately it's hard to find an honest-to-god real PC game any more.

Re: Fallout 3

No, because games don't evolve in a simple linear fashion. EACH game cannot be different. Period. And I've only ever seen one Oblivion on the store shelves, so its time is not yet up.

Personally, I'm waiting for the paradigm shift away from FPSs, but I know it's not likely to happen.

Well there is slight evolution of the genre... survival shooters introduce RPG elements which in turn require some story elements... and of course games are being adopted more and more by the massess now... and of course our populations are aging ...

so heres hoping that at some point some vendor will put out an adult game and then the floodgates will break...

this months PC Gamer UK review gave it a score of 90%

"Follow the games main quest and it will all be over in under 10 hours and you will be very disappointed.

So where does that leave us with a game that many will dislike? and some even hate, for its grey even depressing world. A game that when played through quickly will repel.

DO NOT rush this game, the rewards in Fallout 3 are from playing the game as teh developers intended, complete every side quest, explore every area of the map, do not reload from your last save point when your running low on health.

Fallout 3 rewards the player who plays as if he were stranded in ths glorious post apocalyptic wasteland, the player who scrounges every corner of every room for that vital stimpack, who knows that a puddle of water could be the difference between that final chunk of health and a short boost. At times like this when you play the game as if your life depended on it the devestated land comes to life, full of possibilities behind the dusty grey appearance, when your only goal is survival Fallout 3 becomes sublime."

Re: Fallout 3

Following only the main quest is kind of like turning an RPG into a first person shooter. Any of them are much shorter if you skip the side quest content (which varies, depending on the RPG).

Re: Fallout 3

"The PC version of Fallout 3 is gorgeous. The colours are vivid, the draw distance is endless, the textures are high-res and the lighting effects are beautifully subtle, especially when you're gazing over the Capital Wasteland at sunset. It's the best-looking of the three.

The Xbox 360 version's textures are noticeably rougher than on PC, and objects in the distance aren't quite as clear. It does, however, boast an impressively solid frame rate. The game is, otherwise, identical.

NOW, the PS3 version looks the same as on Xbox, but things in the distance are slightly jaggier/rougher, the textures seem 'muddier' up-close and the frame rate is choppier, especially during the last few story missions (which may be the same on Xbox, but we've not seen the equivalent scenes to comment). We won't spoil anything, but the set-pieces here are MASSIVE, and the engine quivers under the weight of what's happening. "

Re: Fallout 3

He he. They called the PS3 version "rubbish" and then in the follow-up article described the differences as "minutiae of textures, and visible - but negligible - draw distance occurrences." It looks like someone talked to someone else.

is this really that shocking to the author of that article?...has there ever been a console game that has looked better then its PC counterpart?...even the most highly hyped console games don't compare to when their PC equivalents are released---example, Gears of War, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect

now if the PS3 version of Fallout3 had been the best of the 3 then I would have written that article...that's like saying the sun is going to rise tomorrow...tell me something I don't know already
