OMG, Fallout 3
As an avid fan of the Fallout series of role-playing games, I've been tracking the progress of Bethesda's Fallout 3. The original development team, Black Isle Studios, was laid off in 2003 by Interplay (the series' publisher), making the fate of Fallout 3 uncertain. In 2004, Bethesda, maker of The Elder Scrolls series, took on the project and we Fallout fans have been waiting anxiously for the game's release.
Today is the day.
I don't have a computer fast enough to run the game, nor do I own any of the major consoles, but I wanna play it now! A few reviews have come out and they're looking positive, but I'd like to get my hands on a copy and figure it out myself.
I generally don't like first-person shooters, which has been built into Fallout 3's game play, so I'm a bit wary of that particular development. Otherwise, it seems the Bethesda team has done its research to keep the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout alive. Until I scrounge up enough money for an Xbox or a new PC, I crave the opinions of those who've played it. Give them to me.
