Being the good guy

In IGN’s latest Fallout 3 update for Fallout 3 Week, David Clayman shares his thoughts on Fallout 3’s karma system. While playing the game for six hours, he made a point to see how things shake down when trying to be a nice guy. Here’s a snippet:

“The next stop was Megaton. At this point we’ve all heard about the first big choice between good and evil which is the fate of this ramshackle town built around an unexploded nuclear device. Some locals worship the bomb, others just try to steer clear of it, but only you have the power to detonate or disarm the hazard. In Bethesda’s early demos they showed us what happens when players decide cash is more important than human lives and blow Megaton into the stratosphere. This time around we had the chance to experience the benefits of keeping the town on the map.”

As you can see, there’s also a new video about Good Karma — featuring thoughts from Todd and Emil.

  1. Oh snap! Beggers you can help by giving them water and donating money to the churches. Nice :D

    Cool immersion with npcs giving the player gifts if they have good karma along with mercenaries or bounty hunters coming after the player depending on their karma being good or bad. Yea just because one is good doesnt mean everything is going to be hunky dory.
