Thought I’d share some interesting mentions that I came across today and over the weekend.
Next Generation has put up a retrospective piece on Morrowind that was recently in Edge. It’s crazy to think the game’s been on shelves for nearly six years. Here’s a sampling of the feature:
“The island of Morrowind that exists on the disc can be threadbare and tenuous, but be undeniable and persistent in your mind. Also, even on Xbox, it’s a game that throws up snapshots of austere, worldly beauty, where sunrise and landscape conspire against any shortcomings to provide a memorable montage; again, these moments feel personal in a way few other adventures can match.”
Fallout 3 coverage continues to circulate. The staff at CVG put up a new preview over the weekend that covers information shared from our demo of the game:
“When targeting an enemy, you can choose to either shoot outright or use the precision targeting system where your trusty gadget The Pip Boy assesses the best points of impact such as arms, legs or as you can see from the screens – the head. SPLAT! Fallout 3, doesn’t skimp on the gore factor either.”
Ellie Gibson of Eurogamer has a roundup of RPGs to look forward to this year and includes Fallout 3 on the list. Check out the games mentioned here.
Finally, the folks over at IGN (who are celebrating their 10th Anniversary this month) are sharing their personal picks for the games they’re looking forward to most in 2008. Fallout 3 made the cut on a few lists. PS3 writers Chris Roper and Jeff Haynes ranked the game #5 and #2, respectively. At their PC division, Steve Butts places the game as his #3 Most Anticipated and Charles Onyett ranks it #7. Last but not least, Hilary Goldstein puts Fallout 3 as his #3 Most Anticipated on the 360.
