Pete Hines talks to CVG about extreme violence in Fallout 3:
When questioned over the extreme violence seen in screenshots so far, Hines responded: “We don’t want it to be the focal point of the game, but it is what it is. It’s a violent world, and so the combat should be violent as a result.
“I think we’ve done it to the extent that it’s not realistic. It’s a bit more tongue-in-cheek. It’s Quentin Tarantino. So it’s not storming the beaches of Normandy in Saving Private Ryan, where it looks like it’s actually happening. It’s more Kill Bill. It’s violence that’s a bit more over the top so it’s more comical than disturbing.”
Also Shacknews is reporting that the Fallout 3 Collectors Edition will be made available worldwide and with no exclusives to any retail chain.
