Well, I was holding off on a newspost yesterday while we waited to see if we were ready to go with this Lord of the Rings Online contest for you. Apparently it's not quite ready yet.
So instead, today I will bring to your attention, for those that don't know, the Fallout 3 teaser that just launched.
Fallout has been my favorite game series for the past 10 years. It was the first game I bought myself when I saved up all my tips from waiting tables in high school and bought myself my first computer. I've given countless hours of my life over to the Vault, through Fallout 1, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics (yes, I loved Fallout Tactics).
I have intently followed the up and down roller coaster production of Fallout 3 for years, from it's near-death at Interplay due to bankruptcy, to it's revival a couple of years back when Bethesda bought the rights. If the game manages to maintain the style and sense of humor from the previous games by Black Isle, then that's all I need. I really don't care which camera perspective they use.
To pre-answer a few questions about the teaser, taken straight from the press release I received, yes- that is all done in-engine. The song playing is by The Ink Spots ( “I Don’t Want to Set the World On Fire”). And yes, that is Ron Perlman's voice at the end.
So I'm pretty psyched. 2008 is too far away.
