The previews for Fallout 3 continue — with new coverage popping up following Pete’s European Adventure last week.
Gamespot has a featured preview on their site after Guy Cocker from their UK office went hands-on with the game for about an hour. Here’s a snippet of his playthrough:
“Above ground once again, we started to head out of town and toward downtown Washington, DC. We knew that we wouldn’t make it there in the short time period that we had, but we figured it was a good direction to head in. We started to come across some new enemies such as the feral ghouls, which are humanoid characters that had obviously been affected by radiation. We also encountered a trader with a hut full of goodies and a couple of dogs, although considering that we didn’t have any money, we couldn’t buy any of the items that he was offering.”
Elsewhere, there’s new previews at Xbox360Achievements.org and Bit-Tech. I found the Bit-Tech preview amusing — in that previewer Joe Martin refers to his character as Alvin Simon Theodore. It’s got me thinking about what I should name my character in the final build of the game. Also coming out of meetings in London, Strategy Informer has a new interview with Pete.
Back here in the states, Brian Crecente of Kotaku shared his “Best Of” picks from E3. Cool to see that he came away so impressed by the game.
