As you get ready for the weekend, here’s some of the latest Fallout 3 coverage you can read as you head out for the weekend.
Clint McCredie of Australian gaming site Gameplayer has a five-page piece based on an an interview he did with Pete. After reading it, I realized that I probably need to take some time and refresh myself on the works of Charles Dickens. All I could think of when I read Clint’s intro is, “Where’s the mentions of Tiny Tim and the Ghost of Christmas Past?” Dickens references aside, here’s a snippet from the interview:
“We wander further and come across the settlement of Megaton, one of the larger piles of junk that are called towns in this world, and are allowed in by a security droid. Inside, the city’s grim and dirty, like living inside a drainpipe. We’re a bit perturbed that there’s so many people left alive in the town, especially as we can’t work out what they’re doing to survive. Where do they get their food from? ‘Emil Pagliarulo, the lead designer, had me read Cormac McCarthy’s The Road,’ explains Hines. ‘If you read his take on the post-apocalyptic world, then yes, everything should be absolutely dead, and there’d be nothing left to eat except canned stuff. If you take that view, then in 200 years nobody should still be around.'”
After you’ve spent some time reading that, you can also check out some recent lists that place Fallout 3 as one of the most anticipated titles of 2008. Kombo.com has a top ten list for 2008 with Fallout 3 making the list at #4.
Finally, you may recall that back in mid-January, Destructoid asked readers to which games they were anticipating most in 2008. Well, the results are in. We’re pleased to see Fallout 3 made out pretty well…joining good company and making the list at #6.
That’s the news for this week. Double check with your boss/teacher/whoever, but it’s OK by me if you go home.
