Fallout 3 Has Promising E3 Showing

Developers and publishers are now getting the chance to sit back and reflect on E3, and whether or not their products on display impressed the attendees.

Well, Bethesda's Pete Hines is "pretty pleased" with the crowd's reaction to Fallout 3, according to VG247. He said that many journalists on hand were quite surprised they were able to sit down and play the game; most were expecting little more than a trailer. And when they did take some time to toy around with this early build, many came away quite satisfied. Here's what Hines had to say-

"I think we're pretty pleased. A lot of folks that came to the booth were surprised they were getting to play the game and outside of a few things (perks, achievements, main quest) could go and do whatever they wanted in the time they had. We sort of feel like that's what our games do well, let people do things on their own without forcing them.

So I'd be walking around and people would be in completely different parts of the world. Some just exploring, some talking to everyone in Megaton, or trying a quest, and so on. So I thought that went well and the game showed well and the feedback seems to be pretty good from the articles and previews I've been reading. Obviously it's more important what guys like you thought of the game than what I thought."

Well, obviously. But what really gets us is that second paragraph, where he talks about people "in completely different parts of the world," which clearly indicates a massive, freedom-oriented environment. We certainly have high hopes for the final product, which hits the U.S. on October 7 (no official release for Europe just yet), and after this E3 showing, will probably have a number of prospective purchasers.

It looks good but i gotta say i'm really disappointed with what they did with regards to playing it in third person. It just looks clunky and troublesome.

They said on their website that the game is meant to be played in 1st, but I understand what you're saying.

Lol everyone has their preference. But seeing as how it's Bethesda making the game (they made TES as well) 1st person seems to be what they like to make.

VATS comabt system looks friggin' amazing and the fact that you can switch to first person real time comabt makes this title MORE than promising.

i thought they said it was playable in first or 3rd depending on your feel? i thought they even showed it while i was watching their game interview thingy with 1up or whoever it was O_o
also i don't know how to feel about how you can basically just look at someone, see where they're weakest and do some kinda of one-hit kill, and if you don't kill it immediately does it take you out of one hit kill mode? no it goes for a second shot or throw...least that's what i saw...i mean they can just shoot( i think?) but it seems kinda boring with everything dying in that one hit kinda way....hmmm

Based on the work they did with Oblivion, I have to say, I am excited about Fallout 3.

I just loved Oblivion, still playing it.
