For the Polish fans we got word that the Fallout 3 Polish publisher Cenega has an interesting contest and a spanking new Fallout 3 site:
The Polish publisher of Fallout 3, Cenega, has opened a new official Polish website for Fallout 3, where you can preorder both the regular and the collector’s edition (for now only the PC version):
The premiere date they give for Fallout 3 is October 6, but they note that it might change.
Cenega also runs a Fallout 3 contest. The winner of the contest will voice one of the characters in Fallout 3. To take part in the contest you have to preorder and pay for FO3 by August 20, upload an MP3 file with you playing the role of a selected character from the list of available ones, and convince your friends to vote for you, in order to get the most votes for your recording.
Here is a list of the selected characters:
A Brotherhood of Steel knight stationed at the GNR tower. He speaks on the radio without his helmet that would distort his voice.
Gary Staley – a trader, not much is known about him. He runs a cheap diner at the Rivet City marketplace. He believes that people like his cuisine, but the truth is that it’s just the only thing the citizens of the poorer parts of the town can afford.
Janice Kaplinski – a scientist, Doctor Li’s co-worker, she helps with food conditioning experiments.
Anna Holt – a scientist, Doctor Li’s co-worker, she helps with food conditioning experiments.
Maggie from Megaton – a girl whose parents died during a raider attack. She was rescued by Billy Creel, who’s been taking care of her ever since. She’s a little, friendly girl running round around the town.
Paul Hannon – an African American boy, member of the Tunnel Snakes gang. A nice boy that tries to fit in with his less nice colleagues and impress them somehow.
Wally Mack – a member of the Tunnel Snakes gang, a few years older than the player character. He is arrogant and very self-confident.
Also 50 runners-up will get Fallout 3 t-shirts. Thanks Ausir.
