Next Generation has posted a 4-page long Fallout 3 preview:
For the rabid fans of the PC-native Fallout series, the unveiling of Fallout 3 ranks up there with some of the biggest gaming events in recent memory. The fact that a proven developer like Bethesda is handling the game is simply thick icing on an already cavity-inducing cake. ... Running on an advanced version of the engine used for Bethesdaâ€™s freeform masterpiece Oblivion... . So itâ€™s established that Bethesda has always been a fan of the series...Easy on the hype, mister.
Overall, Bethesda promises Fallout 3 to be even more character-driven than Oblivion.That's impossible!
In typical Bethesda fashion, however, you also have the option to spare Megaton and its residents.Typical Bethesda fashion?
â€œViolence done well is f**kinâ€™ hilarious, so we embrace it,â€ says Howard...Someone should put a leash on him.
â€œDestruction is the new trees,â€ Howard proclaims. Gone are the lush, expansive lands of Oblivionâ€™s provinces. These are replaced by charred land and scorched cars that can explode if shot.A true Fallout trademark.
