Here’s a few previews/interviews that have surfaced since Friday.

IGN has the demonstration Todd did for LiveWire w/ Jessica Chobot (above) available on their site. You can stream it above, or watch a higher resolution version here.

Speaking of Todd, there’s a couple other interviews you can check out. MTV Multiplayer’s Stephen Totilo spoke with him at E3, and there’s not one, but two interviews that went up on their blog this week. Meanwhile, the BBC put up an interview late last week.

In other preview coverage, check out Total PlayStation, Totally 360, and Chud.

The Brotherhood of Steel Are Coming

Standing next to one of the giant Brotherhood of Steel figures is pretty cool. These things are pretty darn big. Here’s a few shots from the booth.

To give you an idea of scale, here’s me aiming a Fat Man at one:

But seeing them lined up a warehouse, preparing to invade various retail stores around the world? Darn near imposing. Hit the jump to see the legions preparing to be crated and boarded.

Time again for another post-E3 web roundup.

We’ll start with videos. First, Steve Masters from GotGameTV talked with Pete after going hands-on with Fallout 3 last week. You can also hear Pete talk about the game on the latest episode of The Totally Rad Show. The program is pretty long, so if you don’t want to hear the crew discuss movies, you’ll want to head to the 17-minute mark where the Fallout stuff starts.

In other online coverage, Fallout 3 has pulled down a few more E3 awards. Here’s a rundown:

  • GameSpy honored Fallout 3 as the Xbox 360 and PS3 Game of Show. The game was also was named the Game of Show Overall Runner-Up.

Elsewhere, WhatIfGaming’s unveiled their awards for E3 — with Fallout 3 picking up the Best RPG award and a number of runner-up mentions (including Game of Show, Best PC Game, and Best Console Game). To check out all of their awards, click here.

As for hands-on previews, here’s a list of sites that have put up new previews:

  • Gaming Shogun played the game and believe it’s “as addicting as Jet sprinkled on iguana-on-a stick!” Nice reference.
  • Travis Meacham shares thoughts on his 30-minute gameplay experience over at Tom’s Games.
  • Gay Gamer has a new preview after getting to try out the game.
  • Tracy Erikson of GameShark analyzes the game’s combat system, including VATS.
  • Jem Alexander references Oblivion and previous Fallout games in PS3 Fanboy’s latest preview of the game.

Outside of E3 coverge, Dan Stapleton interviewed Todd and Emil for PC Gamer’s September cover story. If you haven’t checked it out already, it’s now available at Games Radar.

Expect more previews/coverage of Fallout 3 in the coming days/weeks. We’ll keep you posted on what we find.

A few E3 awards

Over the weekend, a few sites put together their Best of E3 lists. Here’s a few where Fallout 3 received honors…

On Friday’s edition of X-Play, G4 selected Fallout 3 as the Best Mutliplatform title at the show. Additionally, the game was included in their Best Game of Show category. Watch the video here.

Meanwhile at UGO, Fallout 3 pulled out awards: Best RPG, Best Console Game, and Best in Show. Here’s a sample of what they said:

“An RPG is about making choices, taking on the role of someone else and living out his or her life. Fallout 3 does a lot more than that. By recreating a post-apocalyptic Washington DC packed with mutants, armored warriors and ghouls, Bethesda has given folks a kick-ass sandbox in which to be a savior, an asshole or just someone who couldn’t give a damn. Blowing up or saving Megaton is just the beginning.”

Finally, the folks at Blast Magazine picked Fallout 3 as the Best Game at E3. Head here to view the rest of their awards .
