Computer and Video Games has put up a new Fallout 3 preview with couple of new screenshots and some we've already seen on scans. Now you have an opportunity to see them in better quality. There are mostly pictures of combat, except one that shows the cityscape of Megaton.
There's no new info on the game in the preview. It is based on the same demo Bethesda's shown many times and it looks like the guy that wrote the preview has never played Fallout. Some funny tidbits from the preview:
Edit: "Pit-Boy" was changed to "Pip-Boy" after someone commented that it's incorrect.
Once here you can opt to take on a small series of mission before moving out of the confines of the relatively safe town and into the desolate, super mutant stalked streets of Washington DC, which is jaw-droppingly rendered.
When targeting an enemy, you can choose to either shoot outright or use the precision targeting system where your trusty gadget The Pit Boy assesses the best points of impact such as arms, legs or as you can see from the screens - the head. SPLAT! Fallout 3, doesn't skimp on the gore factor either.
One thing that was made clear to us when we were playing it was that this is not an FPS, and Bethesda are keen to stress this point, it is an RPG that integrates guns into its gameplay mechanics. This is nothing like Call Of Duty - it's far deeper.
In a break from convention - nothing in Fallout 3 is predictible, lazy or by the numbers - the game also promises a whopping twelve different alternate endings depending what it is you do over the course of the game too so expect a wedge of replay value.
And considering that once you've chosen your special abilities before you left the vault selecting new ones at birth and taking alternate paths adds immensely to the re-spin worth too. 2008's game of the year? If Bethesda's genius Oblivion is anything to go by, it's looking that way.
Edit 2: It appears that CVG weren't supposed to show these screenshots yet, so the pics were replaced with the old ones.
Thanks Wasteland Stories.
