The First 10 Minutes: Fallout 3

The First 10 Minutes: Fallout 3

Bethesda released Fallout 3 on PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 last week, and here's the First 10 minutes. You're not instantly entering the wastelands, so this video will show a bit more about vault. We also have some older official videos at the game page where Bethesda themselves shows how it looks when you left the vault. The game's visuals has surprised me, indoor environments looks pretty good which you will see in this video.

I just completed the main missions not even 15 minutes ago

Gotta say its a badass storyline; its up there with Star Wars: KOTOR; Mass Effect; and kinda with Bioshock (Bioshock was kinda ok)

You just cant play this game for extremely long sittings tho; high stress low health situations

Its not the end of the year yet but this is my GOTY right now lol

now its time to wait for Gears of War 2 :D
btw
If you havent bought this game then its a def. buy ;)

I have played this game for 40 hours so far and i have hardly touched the main story yet, the game is FILLED with sub quests and awesome extras.
It's a game that almost literally puts a gun in your hands and tells you to do whatever you want to, it is easily one of the most non linear games i have played.

Some people are a bit put off by the dead and barren wastelands that the game features, but if you look closely you will see that it is packed with detail and style.

The combat is a perfect mix of fps action and rpg strategy, cool skills and a ton of different weapons and enemies keeps the combat fresh and fun even after countless hours of playing and the absurd amounts of gore also helps ;)

I urge everyone here to give the game a chance it's a bit different from most console rpgs, but if you give it the time and patience it requires it will truly shine.

So far it's my goty, and since it's already november i doubt anything will change that.

I'm not sure, not tonight at least. Bethesda themselves released videos just a while ago showing all that stuff:

You definitely should! I went to the store to get Fable 2 and I'm happy that I was convinced, instead, to buy Fallout 3. It's INCREDIBLY satisfying to watch a tough enemy's head fly off in slow motion. Or to hear someone scream "NOOO!" in slow motion as you blast them.

This game is incredible!

Such an awesome game. VATs is revolutionary, exploration is a blast and the post-apocalyptic world is gorgeous.

RPG of the year.

lol am i the only one that didnt really like this game? Just felt like another Oblivion to me, but with guns and turn-based combat (as it should be, fallout-style).

Turn based combat? I just have to say Final Fantasy is turn based....

this is.... hell idk... masked turn based real time... fights?!?!

and yes the first few minutes are boring but just finish the main story i dont see how anyone could not like this game even IF it was bad a horrible game the story would still save it... fortunately its pretty badass when you get weapons like the plasma rifle or the chainsaw.... or anything that will blow everyone up hahaha

I think bethesda did a great job with Fallout..... except the third person camera.... as usual *sigh*
(if they wanna fix it all they need to do is move the character to the bottom left side with the characters waistline being the lowest part you can see. That way you know where you are aiming!)

Everything else is badass... especially the explosions.... and shooting people into a pile of ash... or shooting limbs off of everything... or watching the Enclave run in fear when they see you ahahaha thats the best part ;D


back to fallout now... gears tomorrow (:D again!!)

This was such a fun game, but the ending sucks balls. Still one of my favorite games though.

Have you got this on the xbox? Because you can have this view on the pc! Just go into 3rd person mode and use the mousewheel to zoom in! Its the view I like using too.

Okay i just gave the game another go, and man i love it now LOL..
I dont know, it was the same with Red Alert 3, hated it at first, uninstalled, reinstalled, gave it another chance, love it. :P

I have a serious love/hate relationship with this game as well. That said, I can't stop playing it.

I don't know, I have a hard time getting into it. I know I stated before that I wouldn't mind an "Oblivion with guns", but it appears now I do. It's just TOO much like Oblivion and what mainly kills it for me is the poorly excecuted FPS mechanics.

I know it's an RPG and shouldn't expect the FPS mechanics to be as polished as a COD4 or Gears 2 (I know Gears is a TPS but still relevant in this context), but expecially after playing Gears and jumping right into this...it's just hard to adjust. The FPS mehcanics just feel bad, no satisfaction at all. The "feel" just isn't there.

The environments can pretty much be broken into the different segments found exactly like in Oblivion. The repetitive barren wastelands (repetitive forests), the "all look alike" subways (caves) and the vaults which all look identical (cave temples). And then just the whole layout of the game just really screams Oblivion.

I don't know, I'll give it some more time for sure...but so far I'm just getting too much dejavu moments and the shooter mechanics that just don't feel right and the whole setting that doesn't really appeal to me kind of kills the experience for me. Plus like I said, coming from playing such an amazingly paced game called Gears 2, it's hard to get into ANYTHING atm.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head.

One of the best openings of any game I've ever played. Really smart character creation.
