    Sorry off topic but when did Joe have time to write this up. I would have thought his mind is elsewhere

    This doesn't sound like polictics at all. It just wreaks of it.

    I'd hazard a guess and suggest that they're trying to avoid the same fallout (arf) that plagued Manhunt 2, when it was released.

    "OH NOOOEEES!!! YOU'RE CORRUPTING THE CHILDREN WITH YOUR HUMOURUS VIOLENCE!!!!" :duh:

    Sorry, but I read an interview with the designer that said one of the important aspects of fallout would be finding water to drink, and that would include drinking from a toilet, which mght not be funny in itself, but if you're going to let the character drink from the bog, you have to let him shoot his enemies in the nuts. There is no free will with constraints.

    You know, shooting someone in the nuts is quite sound tactically speaking if you target can somehow survive multiple shots to the head which they do in fallout. Firstly, it'll hurt a lot, secondly the groin is quite an important part for walking, and lastly, theres a major blood vessel there. I'm not sure what the big deal people are making of the groin shots.

    Seems Beth are gonna take all the jokes out of the game, first they were complaining about the fourth wall comedy of the second game, and now it seems they want to cut out all the humour, fans of the series my ass.

    this is basically just going to end up being like Oblivion with a Fallout setting. Oblivion, aside from the "openess" of it had a canned story that was pretty repetitive. Fallout is supposed to be satirical like Catch-22 and Rosencrantz&Guildenstern. This is going to be **** if they follow this, it'll be like Uwe Boll making his own version of LOTR.

    So far they have just been taking out the bits that made fallout what it was. Beth seem to have forgotten that a game isn't just its setting.

    I never played the originals, but i'm a big Oblivion fan, so seeing Oblivion in a fallout setting seems like a great idea to me :)

    For too many Fallout fans though "Oblivion with guns" wouldn't do the series justice at all. It would be like, say, Nintendo making TESV using Mario Galaxy as a base.

    I'm relatively new to Fallout, not sure how it slipped under my radar for so long, but I've really come to love the game, it's a classic, definitely worth checking out, like a lot of RPGs it takes a while to get to grips with the system behind it, but it's one of the best RPGs ever to be made.

    Edited the first sentence to it actually makes sense.

    My fav easter jokes : Fallout Tactics > Bramin named T1000 says "I need your clothes your glasses and your moootorcycle"

    Another one is in F1 or F2 when you meet the Star Trek Enterprise crew.
