I’ve received word from our UK office that Fallout 3 has been nominated for a Golden Joystick Award in the Edge Most Wanted Award category. As you may recall, the game received a similar nomination last year. It won’t be able to pull off the trifecta in 2009 though, as it will be available in UK stores on the same day the winners are revealed — October 31st.
Meanwhile, if you live in the Land of the Rising Sun, it was announced today that Fallout 3 will be released in Japan on Thursday, December 4th.
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.”
