Before taking off in celebration of the New Year, I thought I’d share a few nuggets of information that we’ve come across recently…
Various websites continue to forecast which games they’re pumped to play in 2008. The staff at CVG have put up a list titled “2008’s Essential PS3 Games,” which includes Fallout 3. It’s nice to see the game make the list with such great company (MGS 4, LittleBigPlanet, and GTA IV were among some of the other games that made the cut). Discussing Fallout 3, they wrote:
“So what Fallout 3 is multiplatform? A new project from the developer of the brilliant Oblivion deserves its place here regardless. A sequel in a PC RPG series, Fallout 3 presents players with a free-roaming, post-apocalyptic world littered with mutants and mangled structures.”
Also looking ahead to 2008, the Times of India have joined the list of folks eager to get their hands on Fallout 3. Check out their “Eight to play in 2008” preview here.
Meanwhile, in Elder Scrolls-related news, PS Fanboy announced their “Best of 2007” award winners and named Oblivion the year’s “Best RPG.”
Last but not least, Famitsu has released sales numbers for the top 50 Xbox 360 titles since the console was released in Japan. Oblivion ranked #6 despite being released less than six months ago.
