I saw a Fallout 3 interview the other day

The No Mutants Allowed folks report that our friend Todd Howard has given up some of his precious time developing cool Xbox 360 action titles for an interview over at Next Generation. While the piece is titled Facing Fallout, there's not actually much about it:
Characteristically, Bethesda isnâ€™t saying much about the game itself but Howard is happy to talk about the companyâ€™s approach to the problem of bringing a classic franchise into a development environment where original IP has generally held sway.Nothing says "Fallout fan" like implying the setting was more important than the gameplay.
â€œWe had known that Fallout had been left behind (when Interplay went bust). The developers were saying â€˜weâ€™re really interested in doing something with this IPâ€™ so the business people came back six months later and handed it over saying â€˜have funâ€™. We liked the previous games, but we really loved the world. Itâ€™s so unique we were really excited about the idea of working on it.â€
