I don’t know whether we’ve ever mentioned him, or if he has said so himself, or if it’s already known, but David Hodgson wrote the Fallout 3 strategy guide for us that will be coming out from Prima (N. America) and Future (Europe). Once again, another “phonebook” guide.
Google Alerts just let me know David recently did a blog post over at the Prima web site about the experience, complete with a whole slew of non-spoilers. Here’s an excerpt:
But if you’re wanting to explore every nook, cranny, and small wasteland [SPECIFIC SETTLEMENT TITLE REMOVED] out in the middle of a blasted heath, you’ll need to free up a seriously large amount of time; more than mere weeks: [NOPE, CAN'T SAY], in fact. Fortunately, these expeditions can be performed in [A DIFFERENT, AND SUITABLY VAGUE MANNER], allowing you to savor the experience, as well as picking and choosing where you’d like to visit, and how savaged you’d like to get at the talons of a [REALLY RATHER COOL CREATURE I CAN'T MENTION].
We’ll be working with David again. There isn’t anyone here that worked on this project with him that wasn’t completely impressed with his professionalism and fanaticism in getting this guide done. He was tireless and did an outstandng job.
Matt and I have talked about getting something together with him for the blog, perhaps an interview where he’s talks to some degree about the process without ruining the game for everyone. After all, the guy is a walking Fallout 3 spoiler at this point. In the meantime, head over to read what else he had to say.
