Boy do I have some catching up to do! Let’s start with a roundup of the last days in the Fallout 3 world, starting on August 1st:
On that day Starpulse wrote about Fallout 3:
The game of the show, however, was Bethesda Softworks’ ”Fallout 3.” A role-playing game that takes place long after a nuclear holocaust, it’s the new project from the team that created ”The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.” By the time ”F3” is published in 2008, it will have been 10 years since the last ”Fallout” RPG, but this looks like it may have been worth the wait.
Have you played any of the Fallout games?
My introduction to the series started with Wasteland on the C64 — at the time I was fairly young and didn’t think much about it as I was playing a lot of the other great RPGs at the time too (Ultima 4-5, Bards Tale, Might and Magic 2, the SSI Gold Box D&D games), but I’ve since revisited it and have greatly enjoyed it. Admittedly, I’ve not spent as much time playing Fallout 1 and 2… I played quite a bit of 1 but never completed it, and never got ahold of 2. I think the whole world of the franchise is great. I find the setting fascinating.
At DuckandCover we found a new Fallout inspired comic strip series, from the creative work of Dogmeatlives. I’m already a fan, good luck to the author.
The 2007 Game Critics Awards where Bethesda’s Fallout 3 was nominated for Best of the Show, Best RPG and Best PC Game were announced and… they didn’t get a single award. Next year with less competition things will be different, I suspect.
More late news to come, stay tuned.
