    Default Fallout 3 OUT NOW!!! (Official Thread)

    I can't wait. I'm buying a 360 just for this game because my lappy unfortunately is just under the system requirements. But I'm sure it will totally be worth it. I just played through the original Fallout and it is amazing. But Fallout 3 just looks awesome. The new VATS system looks like it keeps the style of the old games, and it still has the awesome atmosphere. I still don't know why they took out traits, but at least they made Bloody Mess a perk. They also took out the level scaling from Oblivion, which is even better.

    Let's start the countdown for this one - I'm so glad I'm going to be on Fall Break when it comes out.

    Check out this episode of Gametrailers TV for some awesome footage!

    Yup, I'm right there with you. I even got the CE edition preordered I'm so excited. This and Fable 2 will be taking me through this winter.

    Awesome my pc passes everything but video card to run (by one bar) at recommended which is a great sign that this game will run great. I love games that are video card intensive, too many games lately have been way to CPU/OS/ram/HD intensive.

    My video card only has 128 MB of video RAM, so I'm going to get it on 360.

    I've got it pre-ordered and can't wait either. I'm trying to finish up a few games so I can start Fallout 3 with a clean slate.

    I'm pretty excited about this, but if it didn't have the names "Fallout" and "Bethesda" attached to it I'm not sure I would be. The videos I've seen don't really do a whole lot for me. The way VATS works seems really clumsy and the graphics/animation looks like it could use some polish. When you shoot someone they don't even flinch or anything, they just keep coming.

    But yeah, still probably buying on day 1!

    I really wish I could pick this up day one but I'm afraid I'm going to have to wait. My cash is going towards Fable II this month. From the developer walk through I saw it looks fantastic. So are there any reviews up yet?

    I'm really looking forward to it. So much in fact, that I've taken some days off work just to play Fallout 3... and Fable 2 as well.

    Count me in as someone really looking forward to this one. I have pre-ordered too, and am getting the CE with the Lunch Box which I totally intend to use as a lunch box...

    I enjoyed the first Fallout but I never did finish it. I have Fallout 2, but I've never even installed it.

    I'll be playing it on my 360 because my PCs are over half a decade old...

    I have the 360 version pre-ordered, since my PC was top of the line when I bought it in 2004, but not so much now.

    I can't wait for Fallout 3! I went to the store the other day and I ended up not getting anything because the games just didn't seem as fun compared to Fallout 3. And I haven't even played the game yet.

    Yes I hated the level scaling. Part of the fun of these kind of open ended RPGs is being able to go where you were not meant to. Finding some sneaky way to bait a high level enemy into a big ambush or jack some way beyond your means loot is hella fun.

    I'm still waiting to hear information on the rumor that it's been changed to a wrist watch. If it has, I'm all over it haha.

    EDIT" BTW, I heard this on some forums and have no idea if this is true.

    I preordered this the other day(collector's edition). I'm really hoping I like this, from the videos I saw and reccomendations of the series and this game coming from friends it seems to be right up my alley. Otherwise....I guess I will have a nearly new CE up for sale shortly after the release, but I'm thinking that I will really like it. So this and Gears 2 are now preordered(just did that at Best Buy today so I get the RC Tank), more games I probably won't finish right away!

    Oh, thank god, that was one of my biggest fears. Haven't watched the trailers or read much about it cuz I want my journey out of the vault to be spoiler free.
