    I'm excited for it to be released, I'm gonna wait tho and see how polished it is and see if it's bugged or not. I love Bethesda games, and I'm sure this game will be great for at least a good year's worth of play.

    Looking very much forward to it! :toast:

    Yeah, I'll get Fallout 3 as well, if there's any money left over from all the other games that I'd buy.

    I still play through FO1 and FO2 every now and then. I'm crossing my finger that Bethesda got #3 right :)

    From what i've seen so far it hasn't seemed too promising to me, i thought the E3 gameplay vid looked rather boring, but we'll see, hopefully it turns out to be a great game.

    I have the bad feeling that something will be wrong with that game and realy hope that my 6 sense is lieing to me. So I'll wait and see how it comes up before geting it.

    I'll buy it. Fallout is my favorite game of all time, and I also still whip it out on occasion. If they can keep the atmosphere/aesthetic, wit, and concept in keeping with the old, I'll be happy.

    I'm glad they've gone for a 1st person perspective. The orig. isometric layout just doesn't hold up after some 10 years of technical advances in the industry. I think Bethesda has made some decent choices when trying to balance the transition from ISO to 1st person, turn-based to RT, aiming, etc.

    Looks pretty promising to me.
     
    ShadowFold says thanks.

    Its actually September 12-16th(depending on where you live) now and your 7950 would handle medium high no problem. I think they said they were gonna optimize the game really well in an interview I saw but I'm not sure.

    I doubt F3 is coming this year. I bet it's gonna be delayed just like Oblivion did. Suspect the game around spring or summer of 2009.

    Yeah I figured it would run pretty well, Oblivion runs like a champ on here...1280x1024, 4xAA, Bloom...distant everything, max shadows. I just turn the grass off because it looks ugly...runs about 45FPS outside ;) so Fallout 3 will be godly heh.

    I hope your'e right.
    I hate in Oblivion how I'll be walking outside with decent fps then a I know when I'm getting close to a city, ruin etc because the game will stutter a little then I see the building pop up.

    Reserved that sucka at gamestop. Never played a Fall Out game before, but knowing how good the great team of Bethesda are with the Elder Scrolls Series I expect nothing short of a great game from them.

    Also whats the game rated, cause I think they show male and female private areas, not that thats stopping me, just means I'd need a parent.
