Fallout 3 is a highly anticipated role playing game that hasn’t had any mentions around these parts so I thought this might be a perfect time to mention it. Fallout 3 is developed by Bethesda Softworks, who have previously worked on the Elder Scrolls series (Oblivion review on Binary Joy).
A quick Google has told me that Fallout 3 has had an interesting history (from Wikipedia where you can read more about the game and its history)
Fallout 3 was initially under development by Black Isle Studiosâ€”a company owned by Interplay Entertainmentâ€”under the codename Van Buren. Interplay Entertainment went bankrupt and closed down Black Isle Studios before the game could be completed, and the license to develop Fallout 3 was sold for a $1,175,000 minimum guaranteed advance against royalties to Bethesda Softworks, a studio famous for the Elder Scrolls series.
Recently there was also a teaser trailer that also looks very cool and has helped build considerable talk and anticipation around the title.
