Gamespot Interview with Todd Howard

Gamespot has posted their interview with Todd Howard, following up on the demo presentation with some lingering questions they had, such as:

It’s been said that the first Fallout, rather than Fallout 2, was the model that Fallout 3 was built on. What’s the reasoning for that?“I think the 1st one has the right tone, and the ones after it tend to drift. I liked being a Vault Dweller, searching for water; that was a theme I wanted to pick up on again. Someone who’s lived his whole life in this out-of-touch underground world, who’s thrust suddenly into a wasteland.”

For the rest, head over to Gamespot and read the whole thing.

Update: Play has put up a Q&A with Emil…take a look.

New Official Fallout Site; Todd Howard Team Diary

So after, oh, 4 1/2 months of work, we finally got the official Fallout 3 site done and out the door. Todd, Lindsay, Istvan, and I have been working on this thing since March, and finally got it just the way we wanted.

I think it’s a really cool site, probably the best one we’ve ever done. Many thanks to Lindsay for the 10,000 revisions she had to do until everyone was happy, to Istvan for making sure the look and feel was just right, and Natalia for pulling together all the Vault Boy images we needed.

You’ll find lots of links to all the coverage that’s come out so far, screens you’ve probably seen, new wallpapers you probably haven’t, the teaser trailer, etc. The usual stuff, but lots more to come over the coming months.

We wanted Todd to kick off the Diary section with his thoughts on undertaking the task of making Fallout 3 and what that means to him, and us. Here’s a snippit:

The massive expectations of what this game means to everyone who loved Fallout, RPGs, and gaming-in-general is not lost on us. It’s impossible to discuss the game with anyone without them referencing Oblivion and/or the Fallout legacy. In many ways, it’s the sequel to both games. It’s our “next” RPG after Oblivion while also being the sequel to one the greatest games in the history of electronics. No pressure.

Head over to the new site to read the rest. Drop us a line when you’re done and let us know what you think.
