Fallout 3: Oblivion With Guns In All The Best Ways

Posted by on Mar 8, 2008 in News |

Akayuki has some scans and information about Fallout 3. The Q&A portion is very interesting, covering topics ranging from gameplay to design. In-game weapons and locations are discussed in greater detail than we’ve seen from previous interviews, shedding some light on what to expect from Bethesda’s latest endeavor.

As always, the controversial first-person perspective direction is raised. Thankfully, Fallout 3 executive producer Todd Howard tackles it head-on, giving us some insight on just how Oblivion-like Fallout 3 is going to be.

“If you’re talking to an enthusiast, there are so many differences, and we feel it’s under-selling the game to say it’s Oblivion with guns. But when we started talking to more consumer-oriented magazines, we’d have, like, two seconds…and we’d say, ‘it’s like post-apocalyptic Oblivion with guns.’ And they’re like, ‘Awesome!’ To Joe Public, it’s mainly first-peron, wide-open game and you get to do what you want. The game it’s closest to is Oblivion. So now when someone asks, ‘Is it Oblivion with guns?’ my main answer is, ‘in all the best ways.’”
