PostSubject: Fallout 3 - info - Trailer with in game footage   Wed Aug 13, 2008 8:35 pm

hi people

i thought i would post about Fallout 3 coming october this is a Post-apocalyptic Action RPG 1st and 3rd person shooter

you can play this game without ever playing any of the other games it is Single-player only but with around 100HRs gameplay i don't think you will get bored

below i have posted some info - story, features,characterisation and extra info then video footage it begins with a little trailer then goes into a walkthrough with talking showing a little bit of a level to let you know the sorts of things you can do altho this video is shown on an xbox360 don't let that put you off just think it will look better when you play it


Vault-Tec engineers have worked around the clock on an interactive reproduction of Wasteland life for you to enjoy fromthe comfort of your own vault. Included is an expansive world, unique combat, shockingly realistic visuals, tons of player choice, and an incredible cast of dynamic characters. Every minute is a fight for survival against the terrors of the outside world – radiation, Super Mutants, and hostile mutated creatures. From Vault-Tec, America’s First Choice in Post Nuclear Simulation.

Vault 101 – Jewel of the Wastes. For 200 years, Vault 101 has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you’ve ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

Key Features:

* Limitless Freedom! – Take in the sights and sounds of the vast Capital Wasteland! See the great monuments of the United States lying in post-apocalyptic ruin! You make the choices that define you and change the world. Just keep an eye on your Rad Meter!

* Experience S.P.E.C.I.A.L.! – Vault-Tec engineers bring you the latest in human ability simulation – the SPECIAL Character System! Utilizing new breakthroughs in points-based ability representation, SPECIAL affords unlimited customization of your character. Also included are dozens of unique skills and perks to choose from, each with a dazzling variety of effects!

* Fantastic New Views! – The wizards at Vault-Tec have done it again! No longer constrained to just one view, experience the world from 1st or 3rd person perspective. Customize your view with the touch of a button!

* The Power of Choice! – Feeling like a dastardly villain today, or a Good Samaritan? Pick a side or walk the line, as every situation can be dealt with in many different ways. Talk out your problems in a civilized fashion, or just flash your Plasma Rifle.

* Blast ‘Em Away With V.A.T.S.! – Even the odds in combat with the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System for your Pip-Boy Model 3000! V.A.T.S. allows you to pause time in combat, target specific body parts on your target, queue up attacks, and let Vault-Tec take out your aggression for you. Rain death and destruction in an all-new cinematic presentation.

* Mind-Blowing Artificial Intelligence! – At Vault-Tec, we realize that the key to reviving civilization after a global nuclear war is people. Our best minds pooled their efforts to produce an advanced version of Radiant AI, America’s First Choice in Human Interaction Simulation. Facial expressions, gestures, unique dialog, and lifelike behavior are brought together with stunning results by the latest in Vault-Tec technology.

* Eye-Popping Prettiness!* – Witness the harsh realities of nuclear fallout rendered like never before in modern super-deluxe HD graphics. From the barren Wasteland, to the danger-filled offices and metro tunnels of DC, to the hideous rotten flesh of a mutant’s face.

*Protective Eyewear Encouraged.

custom characterisation

choose what you look like:
The character's mother dies in labour in the Vault 101 hospital, immediately after which the player decides the character's general appearance through a DNA analysis conducted by the father. Afterwards, the father removes his surgeon's mask to reveal a face similar to the one chosen by the player for the character

As a child in the Vault, the character receives a book titled "You're SPECIAL," whereupon the player can set the character's seven primary aptitudes

The character receives training weapons and a PIP-Boy 3000 later on during childhood, and the player's performance in various tests determines the rest of the attributes

Additionally, several quests inside the Vault will be able to influence the player character's relationship with his or her father. Skills and Perks are similar to those in previous games: the player chooses three Tag Skills out of 14 to be the character's specialties

The maximum level the player can achieve is level 20 and the player can choose a new Perk each time after gaining a new level

The Vault-tec Assisted Targeting System, or VATS, will play an important part in the fighting phases of the game.
While using VATS, real-time combat is paused creating a combat system that the Bethesda developers have described as a hybrid between turn-based and real-time combat.
In practice, VATS is actually a real time with pause combat system, with no relation to actual turn based combat.
VATS will also allow the gory deaths in the game to be shown in slow motion and great detail.
Various actions cost action points, limiting the actions of each combatant during a turn, and both the player and enemies can target specific body areas for attacks to inflict specific injuries.
The game will feature a new health and radiation system as well. The player can measure an object's radioactivity and gauge the effect it will have on the character.

extra info

firearms wear out over time:
as a weapon degenerates, its rate of fire slows and it loses accuracy.
However, worn out firearms can be combined to make more reliable and powerful weapons.
Weapon schematics can also be found and used to create various devices such as the Rock-it Launcher, created by combining a leaf blower and a wood chipper, that can fire various items such as lunchboxes and stuffed animals, or the Clever Shrapnel Bomb, made out of a Vault-Tec lunchbox and bottlecaps.

armor and clothing
Along with equipping various weapons, the player can also utilize different armors and clothing that may have effects that can alter various skills.
For example, a pair of mechanic's coveralls may boost the player's repair skill while it is worn.
Armor and clothing come in two main parts for the head and body, allowing a player to wear different combinations of hats and armor. Also, a player's inventory has a specified weight limit, preventing a player from carrying too many items. Items like weapon ammo have no weight, due to the developer not wishing to bog down inventory management.

The player will have a maximum party of three, consisting of himself/herself, Dogmeat, and a single NPC.
In addition to having Dogmeat in your party you will be able to send him out on his own to search for items such as arms and ammo, radiation medicine, and stimpacks.
Dogmeat can be killed during the game if the player misuses him or places him in a severely dangerous situation and he cannot be replaced.
Only one NPC can travel with the player at any time, and in order to get another NPC to travel, the first one must be "fired" by the player.

karma system
A karma system will be an important feature in the gameplay.
The player's actions, including conversation and combat choices, will affect the player's status in the game world; a player who makes good choices will be received more positively by NPCs, and a player that makes bad choices will have the opposite reaction.
Crimes can also be committed by a player, and whichever faction or group that is harmed by a crime will be fully aware of the player's action.
Other factions that were not affected by the crime will not be aware of it, and since a town is usually its own faction, news of a crime committed in one town will not spread to another.
Factions can range in size and boundaries, however, and may not be restricted to a single area.

The game world itself was planned to be significantly smaller than that of Oblivion's but is now expected to be similar in size.

below is a 7m 52s video it is a must see it starts off with a little trailer then goes into a talking walkthrough of a small part of the game so you can see in game footage and see just some of the stuff you can do

I really enjoyed Oblivion and will probably get this.

Ages ago I saw Fallout 1 + 2 together in HMV for something like £7 but decided not to buy them. I've not seen them anywhere since, though. Shame, guess I'll have to wait until this comes out before I get to play a Fallout game. Really looking forward to it though, if I'm not spending all my time recreating Crash Bandicoot levels on LittleBigPlanet ^.^
