Fallout 3 teaser is online

But the servers are getting pounded. It's about 11 am central time right now. Not sure how long they'll keep getting hammered but I'd imagine it'll be for a while. Check it out if you can.

I hate Road Runner (Time Warner.). :smileysad: Then I think it's retarded that you have to pay to watch something they didn't make at decent resolutions. (IGN, GameSpot, and the like.)

Re: Fallout 3 teaser is online

Comcast gives a free IGN account, I believe. Got the WMV HD version.

The feel of the trailer is definitely in line with the first two games. Still, doesn't tell you much right now. "War. War never changes." Ah, good memories! Too bad I'll be waiting until Fall 2008 (more likely Spring 2009) before the game is done. :smileysad:

Re: Fallout 3 teaser is online

Oh man I can't wait. This has given me hope that Bethesda won't barf all over the series and soil its good name. Fits in with the themes of the first. But fall 2008 is SO FAR AWAY!

Why the hell is a compressed movie packaged in a zip file?

Re: Fallout 3 teaser is online

I agree that it's a great teaser. It very much has the same look and feel of the first two games which is a good thing as they kicked so much ass. I also like how they teased that Ron Pealman might be back to do the narration. For those that don't know, there were quite a few people that are well known now that did the voice over work for the first game. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0134648/

Re: Fallout 3 teaser is online

I agree the teaser is great.

Who wants to take bets that they will change the combat to real time though.  I sure as hell hope they don't but I just can't imagine such a high profile, big budget game shipping with turn based combat in this day and age.  I'm not too worried about them keeping the iso perspective.  I have a feeling they will do a hybrid perspective where the user can switch between 1st and 3rd on the fly.

Re: Fallout 3 teaser is online

I hope they keep part combat and that would entail at most a sort of hybrid real-time/turn-based approach (a la Baldur's Gate). Anyway, I could even see something along the lines of Oblivion, but they need to involve other people a lot more than Oblivion did IMO.

Hopefully they will launch a beta in the near future and some of us can get our paws on it.

Re: Fallout 3 teaser is online

I really like the way they panned out all from that transistor inside that radio -looks cool, but is it just gonna be another generic futurist-goth FPS? Lets hope not.

^ Not to nitpik or anything but that was a vacuum tube. Here's a comparison of the two.
Also, the Fallout series is of the  post-apocolyptic RPG genre. 1 & 2 are some of the best RPGs ever made. Great story, great style, great gameplay, great humor. The only thing that really stands out as bad is that 2 was rushed out and shipped with lots of bugs.
