Yer, the Nuke was a great effect. I'm looking forward to this game, even though it isn't isometric goodness.

i really have to play this to make a decent judgement, on one hand the 3rd person and first person views make the world look abit lame.

on the other hand, its fucking fallout and it gives me an instant boner.

I originally was pretty scared of how they were going to ruin fallout, then i started really looking forward to it.
After seeing these i'm a little standofish again but I still have to get it regardless :P

How does the VATS system work? Can you continually pause to shoot someones dick off or do you have a certain number of action points? How do you regenerate these points?

I don't know exactly, but it certainly looks like its limited in some way by action points or something, cos even when hes in VATS targetting shit you can see it queing up in the bottom right corner of the hud, and the amount of stuff he can queue looks limited. It would have to be limited otherwise I don't see why you wouldn't just it all the time to pwn everyone.

The number of Action points you have is based on your Agility Stat with a couple of modifies like some of the Perks, armour, drugs and so forth.

When you enter VATS you can target various body parts and so forth and each action uses up a couple of points. When you are out of VATS those points slowly regenerate.

Think of VATS as a special power that you can pop off once in a while.

I thought action points would be regenerated every time you kill an enemy, similar to how in max payne you get bullet time for killing enemies. Either way I hope its not a gimmick that will be useless.

Has the collectors edition for Australia's been finalised? I hope we get some cool shit like the Americans.

My biggest fear for the VATS system was mentioned my Trog, hopefully by release it will be fixed. The VATS deaths can not be skipped and would probably get repetitive after a little while.

The VATS system isn't a gimmick. It is heavily tied into your characters stats and is a major part of the combat orientated character-world interaction. Some of your characters will have heaps of Action points and some will have bugger all and that will make a huge difference in how you go about combat situations.

Apparently Australia has collectors editions with some bits'n'pieces in it, check the fallout 3 wiki. However sif buy it in Australia, you pay MORE for a censored version of the game. Buy it from play asia or somesuch..
