Community relations has been one of the hot subjects on the Bethesda Games Fallout 3 forum, so it’s not surprising that Community Manager Matt “Gstaff” Grandstaff has produced a few more posts than usual. Let’s start with this one, about linking to TheVault, the Fallout Wikia run by Ausir:
I sent a PM over to Blinzler, which I neglected to save (sorry), but basically, we haven’t put up the anything about the Vault wiki because we are still working on what we’re gonna do as it relates to the lore stuff on the Fallout series.
To this point on the official site, there’s not a place to link to such a site.
Other answers to statements made on this post:
GStaff, please ask if it is okay to post how large the character limit on player dialogue is. Then post it. Surely something as small as that couldn’t hurt.
I believe Todd is addressing dialogue in the Q&A we’re putting out soon. Once that’s out, we can always see about getting clarification.
I for one would rather see information in a steady trickle and towards the end this trickle turning into a waterfall, so you’d still have the full media-attention.
To be fair, beginning with the concept art we put out a few months, there has been a trickle of information coming out. Personally, I think there’s been a fair amount of information to digest. I completely understand how many of you, those who have been following Fallout for a decade, want to have as much information as possible, but given that guys are still hard at work on the game, we’re not opening the floodgates at this time.
Sarcasm understood, but obviously, we’re not catering to trends of how a game should be made 10 years later. We’re simply putting out a title that represents how we want to make Fallout. Some people will embrace our take, others probably won’t….we can’t stop that.
