    Yeah, alright, this looks pretty freaking awesome. As long as the gameplay is solid (and Intelligent Systems has a good track record) I see no reason why I shouldn't pick this up.

    Every time a Fallout game gets teased and it's revealed to be a hoax, I die a little bit more on the inside. At this point I'm basically a zombie.
