Does the gun from the teaser trailer, that looks a lot like this one from the Fallout 2 menu, is in fact a laser gun? Anyone knows? This is a question from a reader of this blog that sent me the links through Meebo.
There’s a grass roots movement starting on the Bethesda Games Fallout 3 Forum to send a fan appreciation letter to Ron Perlman. The details of the thing are still a bit fuzzy but I’ve signed it anyway, the man rocks!
After the Fallout 3 teaser got twenty topics opened in record time asking for it to be released, every Zenimax server going down, the Bethesda downloads being replaced by outside mirrors, the outside mirrors going down too and the roar all over the net I think the good people at Bethsoft may be convinced that the interest about Fallout 3 and the Fallout games is something big. Really big. I hope those that thought Fallout only appealed to eleven angry guys think things over and try to learn a bit more on the Fallout games following and fandom.
Pete Hines had this to say about the teaser to VoodooExtreme:
1) Yes, that’s in-engine (in-engine means it’s done with game assets in our rendering engine, but isn’t done real-time. If it was done in real-time, that’d be gameplay footage. This isn’t something, for example, that was sent to some house [e.g. Blue Studios] so they could build assets and render it out, and create something for us to release [e.g. Dawn of War 40K intro cinematic]).
2) Yes, that’s The Ink Spots singing “I Don’t Want to Set the World On Fire”
3) Yes, that’s Ron Perlman [voiceover man extraordinaire of Fallout 1 and 2]
Later on he added this while talking to DuckandCover:
Pete Hines has graciously confirmed to DAC that the recording of Ron Perlman in the Fallout 3 Teaser Trailer is, in fact, brand new. He recorded it specifically for Bethesda.
In addition, when asked about the release of more information, Pete had this to say:
Still slow for a while, but not long now. We aren’t planning to fill in any more blanks for the time being.
