Noticed that Mr. Jeff Gerstmann happens to playing himself some Fallout 3 at the moment.  So, any advance notice on what you think about it?

Is he playing it on XBOX or PS3? I'm gonna go on PSN just to see if he's logged in.

EDIT: He's reviewing the XBOX one I presume. Not on PSN anymore.

I just hope that Jeff comes back and says "Fallout 3 blows gerbils for nickels".  That would really make my day.

But I know he won't...unless he just says it for the hell of it.  =  /

Hey, don't pick on Jakob. How would you feel if Valve sold the Half-Life IP to someone and they made a Gears of War clone called Half-Life 3? :P
I guess Fallout 3 will be pretty good but it won't be a proper fallout.

Now I know I can't listen to anything you ever say.  You apparently hate good games and good development studios.  Enjoy Oblivion with guns.  I'm going to be cringing.

As always, I'm willing to give the game an honest chance, as being a Fallout fan, I don't want a bad Fallout game to come out.  It's just that I remember Brotherhood of Steel...

...and I also remember how pretty it was burning in my driveway.

I do know what no mutants allowed is
its a group of people who are to busy having their heads up their own asses to see that fallout 3 is good 
they are the people that are crying "oh why can't it look and play like a crappy 10 year old game"
NMA is just a collection of pompous jackasses, trolls, and people that can understand change and evolution of games

.........anyway. I'm fairly certain that Fallout 3 will get a good review. I see Jakobs point of view: Oblivion with guns. It is using just a modified version of the engine used in Oblivion and there were a couple things (third person shiftiness) that could probably really turn people off. However, I believe that this will have enough original Fallout story and content to make it feel securely like a Fallout game and not just a Bethesda game. But whatever, to each his own or some such bullshit.

It's not moronic to not like the direction a game is going.  Just because you think it's better that they changed it, doesn't mean that it's Truth.

I for one think this game looks fucking amazing.  I can't wait to try it.  Then again, I've never played the originals.

I've played the originals and loved them.
However I'm pretty confident I'll like Fallout 3.
Oblivion with guns it might turn out to be, but shit. I liked Oblivion.
If it's going to be mechancally similar to any game it's not a bad choice to emulate.

I would've loved a Fallout 3 in the style of the originals, but what can ya do? I'll be happy with what we gets.

There are always going to be subtle differences because of the difference in platforms, in fact some may consider the colour palette and clarity as not subtle, so to suggest they are exactly the same, is a loose comment.

 Once both versions are out all these differences will come to the fore in the media. What is known is that the lead platform is Windows based and that means the windows based version will likely be truer to the development teams intentions, as subtle as they may be.

Fallout 3 looks good, however, I've never played any of the other Fallout games...

I do think the situation of Half-Life is a little different seeing as how it's a newer game.

Theres nothing wrong with taking an old IP and updating it for a new generation, as long as they do it right.

from what I've seen and heard of the old fallout games, it seems Bethesda is trying their best, and anybody who rants about them is simply just trying to cause problems.

I loved Fallout 1, 2 and Marrowind.  I would have loved Oblivion if it had kept more of what made Marrowind great....

As far as Fallout 3 goes, I think it will be a great game.

I think it's rather ridiculous how somebody can bash Fallout 3 just because the gameplay has changed from Fallout 2. I suppose I don't really have a say in this because I never played the original Fallouts, but I think it really is down to somebody like me who has never played the originals. If Bethesda can attract modern gamers to play their game by offering all of these modern concepts in one very well orchestrated package, they're doing something right. This is why I think Fallout 3 will be amazing:

  • Exciting setting
  • Interesting gameplay: The combination of the First-person adventuring of Oblivion and the innovative new concept called VATS is intriguing
  • Tons of customization
  • Hundreds of NPCs, all with GOOD voice acting.
  • A unique "1950's" vibe to it, kind of like Resistance 2
  • Hundreds of hours of gameplay

I've now played it on a friends modded 360 and it's definitely more than oblivion with guns. I really like VATS and the dialogue is MUCH better than oblivions. It's much more action packed than FO 1 and 2 but the combat is really nice. (the guns do sound a bit weak though and melee was boring)

I thought that FO 3 wouldn't be a good game but it's much better than I thought it would be. I will definitely buy this when it comes out for my PC! :D

Edit; I've also played Horde in Gears 2, that was really awesome! :P

game looks great. it's different from the original fallouts and doesn't have the same charm that the older gameplay had, but it nonetheless looks like a fantastic play.

as far as half-life 3 playing like gears, the situation would be the same. lack the old charming gameplay, but adopt a still entertaining style.
