Greetings fellow game lovers. I'd like to give some info about Fallout 3 and discuss about it.
Fallout 1: Developed & Published by Interplay
Fallout 2: Developed by Black Isle Studios, Published by Interplay
Cancelled Fallout 3: (Codename Van Buren) Developed by Black Isle Studios, Cancelled by Interplay at 75%
Fallout 3: Being Developed & will be Published by Bethesda Softworks
Ah, the game that thought me English, when I was at my childhood...
You can get the Van Buren photos if you search a little, or just ask me and I can post some of the Van Buren photos here. Van Buren was finished by 75% when Interplay disbanded the BIS team and fired them. Game mechanics and anything else than maps, story was the only ones left to finish. But Interplay handed the Fallout title (not Fallout Online title) to Bethesda Softworks. Van Buren was intending to keep original gameplay, with same camera angle but this time all 3D, but Fallout 3 by Bethesda Softworks is going to ALTER the gameplay completely.
Have you ever played any of the Elder Scroll series? The first I was played was Daggerfall (Elder Scrolls II), then I played Morrowind (which was a HUGE world for me, I was playing it day and night. Watching sky in-game and enjoying it!!!). Then Oblivion came out and took my expectations for the next Elder Scroll game to another dimension! But, when I heard that BS (Bethesda Softworks) is going to make Fallout 3, WITHOUT using any previous Van Buren codes (meaning: developing from start, taking only Fallout world to adopt). Then a battle started inside me...
Yes, a battle. I'm a GAME LOVER, for example, I play Civilization 4, Galactic Civilizations 2, HOMM 5, Doom III, FEAR, CS, Red Alert 2, this and that, nearly every title that you can see on the game markets. But some games have a special place for me. Especially RPG games, and among RPG games, all of the Black Isle titles (Fallout, Lionheart, ...), Elder Scrolls Series, all of the Bioware titles (Baldur's Gate, ...). In short, the battle within is a fight caused by the 2 joining games, gameplay of Morrowind-Oblivion travels to Fallout dimension. But I'm lucky a bit that I will play Fallout 3 aswell, because I like Fallout, I like Morrowind-Oblivion, so it'll be great for me to see everything 3D with immense graphics on Fallout world... But;
Many of my old comrades are saying that they never liked Oblivion, or Morrowind, and transferring Fallout world into a Elder Scrolls kinda place is a reason for them not to play that game. They don't like FPS, and you know, Oblivion-Morrowind is kind of a FPRPG (first person role playing game ???)
What do you think? Is it a great thing to do (joining 2 games (gameplay + world))? First question should be this, do you like Fallout and Elder Scrolls? Then answer previous question.
And lastly, if you havent, check Fallout 3 videos. There are 5 gameplay videos. And if you would like to see how Van Buren was going to look, I can post links here.
