As the game draws ever closer to completion and eventual release, Fallout 3 has been garnering some serious momentum in the news, be it surrounding die-hard fans of Fallout and Fallout 2 criticising the game for not being Fallout or Fallout 2, or its initial ban, then classification in Australia following the renaming of real-world drugs, which then went on to be included in all versions, worldwide. Good or bad, I'm pretty sure all of this is going to result in solid sales.

We have some new screens up, and also came across a pretty cool interview that is geared more toward those inclined to pick this up on PC over at Shack News, where one of the better quotes from Bethesda's Pete Hines comes in response to the Aussie drug renaming 'scandal':
"It is seriously the biggest non-issue in the history of videogames. It got way more attention than it merits."
Agreed Pete. Fallout 3 is due to release in Australia on October 28 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

This game looks awesome in screenshots, but looks considerably less appealing when in motion. I'll give it benefit of the doubt though.

Yeah, I watched that recent 4 part (5 part?) walkthrough one of the developers did where he goes through the first town and the supermarket and watches the bomb explode and stuff, and it all looked awesome to me.

I really, really want to play this game. Even though I'll be disappointed because it isn't Fallout 1 or 2.

It looks way cool when you're actually playing it. Some of the (early) videos looked sort of lame but after checking it out at GC it looks and feels pretty solid.

I didn't realise there were new videos out. I'll have a look at them. I do hope they've improved it considerably from the last video I saw, because I was pretty underwhelmed. Not at the gameplay, just the clunkyness.

EDIT: Just watched that 5-part gameplay demo. It does look better, and it still looks really fun, but I can't say I've seen much of an improvement in those little combat cinematic moments. They still look kind of clunky, and the NPCs move and act exactly like they do in Oblivion.

Don't get me wrong, I think the game looks like heaps of fun, and I'll definitely be getting it, but animation doesn't really seem to be Bethesda's forte.
