  1. If you can, please allow more stuff like this to be released. Except, instead of just this demonstration part (that’s featured over and over in videos), release some long footage of someone tackling a quest or walking around a town or talking to an NPC, and perhaps one of how to approach a situation differently (stealth, speech, science etc.).

    I think you’d impress more people that way.

    Other than that, the game is looking good, and sounding great in the more indepth hands-on previews that talks about a lengthy playthrough.

  2. So, how about some of that awesome dialogue you have there? I have seen about 50 minutes of Fallout 3 gameplay so far and none contained any dialogue whatsoever.

  3. Not to rag on Bethesda but I’ve been reading that ‘Fallout 3′ on the 360/PC will be getting exclusive DLC, yet nothing has been mentioned about the PS3 version. Do we PS3 owners get the shaft again? Is this ‘Oblivion’ all over again. How about making an announcement about the PS3 version.

  4. All you people need to chill! 1.Don’t worry about DLC yet, just wait to enjoy the game first.
    2. They are obviosly not wanting to give the story away, so no dialogue yet.
    3. Wait till the game comes out to bitch about stuff!

    I am very excited about everything i’ve seen so far, and can’t wait to pick up my copy!

    “All you people need to chill! 1.Don’t worry about DLC yet, just wait to enjoy the game first.”

    My question is why? Bethesda already made the announcement about DLC so regardless how the game is first, they’re already committed to releasing DLC to enhance the game and yet nothing about the PS3 version. If Bethesda wants me to buy their game then as a PS3 owner I want to know if I can count on Bethesda to support me in buying their game. Seems to me you’re the one you should chill.

  6. Excellent preview. First one i have seen (eventhough i have only like seen three)where i get to hear all the great sound effects in all their glory.

    The lonely wind instantly makes one feel like this is the world of FALLOUT just like the eerie church bells in FALLOUT 1 did.

    Thats some viscious weapon firing staccato sound effects :D It was funny hearing the enemy Npc voices yet creepy in its lifelikeness as one of them sounded emotionally annoyed.

    Pip Boy’s texting sound effects are great and just right for what it is.

    Pretty dramatic inspiring effect as the song started to play when taking out the turret. Yes his truth keeps marching on :D

    Thanks for another excting preview letting me know i am right in wanting to buy..FALLOUT 3 by BETHESDA.

    I’m with you jihad. I really REALLY hope Bethesda gives PS3 the same support they are giving the other formats. =(

  8. @ BlackIce
    I own a PC, 360 & a PS3.
    @jihad
    I’m not saying that it’s cool they’re saying no DLC for PS3, but look @ Oblivion. Bethesda released a GOTY Edition with all the DLC. It just depends on how much you want to spend. When a game is multi-platform you can’t always get what you want.

  9. Sorry Lothar,

    “Bethesda released a GOTY Edition with all the DLC”

    That simply isn’t true, all that was on the GOTY version was SI and the KotN – no other DLC was or has been released for the PS3 unlike the PC/360.

    @J.Kelly –

    Bethesda released the SI expansion on PSN without any problems – so not the rest of the DLC that is available for Oblivion?

  10. I think blaming Sony for DLC problems isn’t going to be a good enough answer any more.

    – Bethesda managed to get a full expansion onto the PSN for download. Why would the smaller DLCs be a problem?

    – More and more third party developers are putting DLC onto the PSN on a weekly basis. Why is Bethesda the only one who seems to be dragging their feet?

  11. Wow this game looks awsome it has me really hyped that i might get another great rpg for my 360..the thing is the last game to get me this hyped was mass effect which turned out to be quite frankly a dissapointment :( id like to know if what im watching in the vids is a collection of “best bits” or will the majority of the gameplay be like this? (the E3 trailer looks fantastic)

    “You should probably complain to Sony about difficulties with DLC.”

    I complained last week as a matter of fact. =) In the nicest possible way.

    My Original Message:

    A number of us Playstation 3 customers/users have noticed that a number of games don’t seem to be
    receiving the same support in terms of DLC as on other platforms. Is there a reason for this and can
    we expect to get the same DLC support for our purchases in the future? The three games I personally
    am concerned about are The Orange Box: Team Fortress 2, Oblivion, and Fallout 3.

    Thank you for any help you can give!

    I don’t know whose court this falls in anymore, but either way it seems that the PS3 consumer is losing.

  13. That really is too bad about the PS3, but if Microsoft managed to secure a deal with some exclusive content, then I guess it is what it is. My big questions up to this point are whether or not any kind of TES Construction Set-like editor will be released for the PC version, and how much of a step-up the system requirements will be from Oblivion? We probably won’t know for a while down the road, but I’m not sure whether I should preorder the PC or 360 version of the game.

  14. Dear Bethesda,

    Please fix your chronically stiff animations. See Oblivion for reference. Otherwise, I’m very much looking forward to this. Thanks a bunch.

    P.S. I still play FO1 & 2. Have any of you tried the FO2 Restoration Project? I think it’s up to 1.2 now. See NMA…
