Fallout 3: Game Informer scans and transcript

With people hungry for detail on Fallout 3, it's no surprise that the information in the July issue of Game Informer has popped up on the web. NMA Fallout has scans and a transcript, but if you're able, I suggest you buy the magazine and tip your hat (and your wallet/purse) to Game Informer for securing this exclusive.

  • The game will retain the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. attribute system, perks and traits.
  • The game's view point will be first person or over the shoulder 3rd person, not unlike Resident Evil 4.
  • Combat will be real-time or simulated turn-based, with the ability to expend action points to pause the game and target enemies.
  • Your character will deal out (and take) locational damage, with the potential for bones to break.
  • The karma system will make its return.
  • The game is set in Washington DC and its surrounding areas.
  • You will be able to tune into a number of surviving radio stations via your Pip-Boy 3000.
  • Computers can be hacked.
The author of the article had this to say about his impressions of the game:
As longtime players and fans of both Fallout and the Elder Scrolls franchise, that one hour as we sat in rapt attention made one thing abundantly clear: This is the best of both of those franchises, without any compromises, and with enough amazing new details to excite even the most jaded or skeptical RPG enthusiast.
What do you think of the game as it looks so far?
