Images of Fallout 3

Images of Fallout 3

Bethesda thinks of those who were not invited to see the latest presentation of Fallout 3 and releases three superb screenshots. This, plus the very positive previews that just went out, the wait is becoming more and more difficult to bear...

Right Snoopers, can't wait either ^^
This game is gonna be a bomb.
Screens look good. Superb athmosphere.

So, my basic impression is that the environments are gorgeous while the characters look a bit less exhilarating. While i'm a bit cautious with this particular title (what with bethesda and all), i still feel a fair amount of hype.

Fallout 1 and 2 are like the textbook examples of superb RPGs, but will bethesda be able to deliver? I mean, the game can still be a good game, but it has a lot to live up to if it's going to please the fans :)

*edit: I also hope that they have improved the character making part from oblivion a bit :P

Ugly graphic as GTA4. Dark colours, crapy textures and materials, awful lightning.

Looks great to me. So this will be like Elder Scrolls set in a post-apocalyptic world?

I'm not blown away by those screens, though the second one looks pretty cool.

Lots of time for it to shape up I guess.

twoism: hopefully not, but probably yes :P

I hope that they manage to preserve the stuff that made Fallout 1 & 2 so great...like witty/humorous/unique dialogue, great characters and a leveling system that is not retarded. I also hope it's WAY more balanced than oblivion.

Jekyl: Lots of time? It's due out this autumn, lest it gets delayed.

Having just read 1up's (Jeff + Shawn's) most recent preview for this game, my interest in this title has skyrocketed. It sounds amazing. I know it may not be the Fallout 3 that some were expecting years ago, but Black Isle is gone and for better or worse, Obsidian lost out. Bethesda is a great developer and this game sounds awesome. I can't wait to play it.

I think he third pic captures the feeling/athmosphere of fallout 1&2 quite good.

Also I'm looking forward to really travel through deserted landscape - i hope there's also a car in this game for transportation purpose. :)

And I think the ghoul in the first pic looks nice.

Yepp, his diet worked better he was expecting it ^^
I hope we will see a vid with ingame footage, soon.

The lack of shadows is surprising. No shadows in the first pic for example.

omg!!
Commented on 2008-04-11 14:16:57
This is why i dont think devs should show people anything till it is 100% ready

They show you its current state "looks shit"
They show you photohop "WTFOMG! they fucking suck"

Cant wait, if it is anything close to oblivion and co i am sold...guns or not :(

In that case let's hope it looks much better in motion :D

its FPS + JRPG sorta... you can use fps for killing and standard rpg elements but if u activate the VATS system ingame, it allows you to freeze time, setup an attack along with a bunch of stats on where your hits have a chance of doing most damage, and once you execute it it kicks into a cutscene like animation of the attacks...

teamxbox said its looking wicked, and its kinda funny fable 2 and fallout 3 both have the doggie element, and the grow up and develop yourself... though in fallout your poor doggie companion can die in fable he cant...

i want this and fable 2 BAD!
Commented on 2008-04-11 15:36:42
JRPG? Where did you get that from? Since it's the TES team making it, i can almost guarantee that it won't be anything like a JRPG.
Commented on 2008-04-11 16:11:22
This or gta 4 is bound to be my game of the year.
Now if you excuse me i have to go install fallout 2 (yet again)
Commented on 2008-04-11 16:28:12
Not quite as impressive as Disgaea 3, but I'll give it a shot.
Commented on 2008-04-11 16:59:06
Okay, so I haven't ever really heard of/played any of the Fallouts (I know I know, where have I been). Therefore, could someone please explain what the Fallout series is about in terms of story and gameplay?

If it's like Oblivion, i'm there. I'm not too sure that any 360 game has topped that for me so far in terms of what it offered.

Edit: Someone above hinted that the gameplay is turned based combat. Is it? I sure hope not... Not a fan of those games.
Commented on 2008-04-11 17:23:28
Looking forward to this.
Never played a Fallout before, never played and PC games before, so I don't really know anything about it story wise either.

Its like KOTOR. You can pause the action, plan it out,then watch it unfold, but if you don't pause its real time.

The originals were top down prety much resembling Diablo. Fans will be fine with this. Bethesda never had great looking games. This one has style and atmosphere though. Not too mention it has soo much stuff to it that they have to down the graphics so they can fit it all in on the disc. And the graphics are more then acceptable. Fairly smooth, lots of atmosphere, crisp.

Come on guys, this looks insanely good IMO. It may look a little bit rough around the edges, but remember it is a large game they`re creating here.

I mean look at Warcraft.....it`s no gpu stretcher by any means, but what the game does, it does well!....and that is the important thing.
Commented on 2008-04-11 18:11:23
Damn this looks great. I read some preview and character creation sounded awesome. Huh people are complaining about graphics :p When have Fallout looked good... It's about living in the post-apocalyptic world... it's not meant to be colourful game. Anyway graphics looks good for me. Easily my most waited RPG.

Second pic looks cool. I can only guess at what it looks if camera would be moved a bit to the left :D
Commented on 2008-04-11 18:20:13
not quite as impressive as say... S.T.A.L.K.E.R, graphically, but good nonetheless.

Aaahhh okay. So the game can be played out like a regular shooter, but the game can also be played in a turn-based style combat.
