That guy Briosafreak gave an interview to the excellent blog Alley of Infinite Angles. It’s not so bad as you might think, since he barely speaks of him, and instead brings ahead some point for discussion about the Fallout community and Fallout history. One example:
The way they followed the original is still available in the old newsgroups, but much of the FO2 data seems to have been lost forever.
The Interplay message boards during the Tactics days was a great loud party, with the AtheistsforChrisT (as in Chris Taylor) like Killzig or JC causing all sorts of trouble, Saint_Proverbius making some great posts, and the Baldurs Gate and Fallout fans always picking at each other.
The devs interacted with the fans there, and lobbying was made in the fansites. There was a bit of a lack of informal channels though, that caused many misunderstandings, a lesson I learned it should be avoided in the future.
Later, and after two cancellations of the development of Fallout 3,that were kept in secret, the fans were tired of waiting…
I still don’t trust that guy, still thanks for your patience Tigranes.
A message from Rohan at Gametrailers TV:
Hi! I’m Rohan from GameTrailers TV
I wanted to let you know that this Friday, tomorrow night at 1am on Spike TV, we’ve got a whole show on Fallout 3!
We went to Bethesda to talk about the game with the developers, received over 15 minutes of brand new, never-before-seen footage, and ask the questions that true Fallout fans want to hear. Trust me, I’m one of them. We unveil a new quest that takes you to the Washington Monument and get up close and personal with the Super Mutant Behemoth.
Not only that, but we’ve got other exclusives in the show – everything from an interview with Tony Parker about NBA Live 09 to a brand new Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 trailer that features the remixed Hell March theme. It focuses on the Empire of the Rising Sun, and has to be seen to believe!
Check out the promo for the show here:
Looks like most of us have been letting our curiousity get the better of us. Fret not, some good has come of it and it looks like the Fallout 3 Perk List is nearly complete. Hopefully this gets integrated into the excellent Character Creator by Quinnis.
Edit: Perk information has been removed from the wiki at Bethesda’s request.
