Fallout 3 Facts That Could Save Your Life 75

This past weekend Bethesda released a few new tidbits of information about Fallout 3. Game journalists were invited to an event with the production team, and came away with a much better sense of what the title is like. "Fortunately, you never had to experience the horrors of a nuclear holocaust. Unfortunately, your mother died during childbirth, and you were raised by your father (in a very scientific fashion). Your early, developmental years play an important part of the character creation process and double as a basic game play tutorial. The G.O.A.T. (Generalized Occupational Aptitude TEST) determines what some of your starting skills and skills will be. Physical, artistic attributes can be customized as well. Much like the first level of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, you can manually alter your starting stats and skills before you venture forth." For an epic amount of coverage on the game, Bethesda's new blog has two posts with copious links to previews and hands-on pieces.

    Like the first two were bug free?

    Nothing pisses me off more than people who are convinced it sucks before they even play it, except maybe people who think it's awesome some equally bad reason.

    I think that the character creation system is one of the areas they did well. Also, I think that they did a really good job on the first dungeon. For the most part, the problems don't start until you get out there and run into issues with the leveling system and the bland storyline.

    Maybe it will be, if you volunteer to shoot a porn movie but lack the necessary stamina and charisma...

    Can you shoot porn movies in Fallout 3 ? Or engage in prostitution ? Or sleep with the head of slaver's guild to get a discount ? Or has the world been cleaned up to match current standards of morality (meaning you'll get exploding heads, but no sex, drugs or slavery) ?

    I don't think you can make a Fallout game with modern-day graphics without ending up with AO rating. M only gets you gore.
