From the Metro to your Desktop

As previously reported on Joystiq, Fallout 3 has taken over Metro Center in Washington DC. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. When I took a visit last week, it was a trip seeing different people staring and talking about the displays. When I talked to this guy shown below, he marveled at the image and wondered if it was from another movie like 300.

If you’re not able to see them in person, I’ve included some new photos from various locations within Metro Center. Oh yeah, and head to our Fallout 3 Official site to download three new wallpapers based on the Metro advertising.

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.
