Fallout 3 coverage continues to trickle in. The latest coverage comes from the online magazine, PCGZine, who recently spoke with Pete about the game. Here’s a sample of the interview:
Fallout 3 looks to be a very dark game. Where will the glimmers of hope come from? The plot? The gameplay? Twisted moments of black humour? How would you describe the game’s personality?
Pete: The glimmers of hope come from the people you meet. Where there’s humanity, there’s hope â€“ people have dreams and aspirations. And you can squash those dreams, or help people fulfill them. Definitely plenty of dark humor, but I don’t’ know if that’s where I’d look for glimmers of hope.
Is Fallout 3 an action game, or a strategy game? And if it’s both can you tell us about passages of play that typify each element. Actually, why not tell us anyway…
Pete: It’s a role-playing game. First. Last. Always. Any role-playing game always absorbs bits of other genres in terms of how it presents combat or what the player is doing, but it is a post nuclear role-playing game to its core.
