    As Incognito posted on the Bethboard, the E3 schedule on IGN shows that another Fallout 3 showing is slated for 2:30 PM PDT (11:30 PM CET). It will apparently last for approximately 30 minutes, so hopes are up for more than just showing off combat. If you don't have Livewire installed you should be able to watch it from Gamespot (which was working yesterday, but seems to be having technical problems now) or any number of other places.

    We'll flesh this post out with content as we find it, unless the bears find us first.

    Update: It turns out the demo area and action were largely the same this time as well. The interviewers were a bit more keen on hearing about the game world, and Todd went into more detail about some things like skills and crippling. Until there's a separate video, here are some notes given by a mysterious stranger before he was decapitated:

    * The hacking minigame requires characters to have a high science skill to even attempt it.
    * Having both legs crippled causes immobility.
    * Having one or more arms crippled results in the reduction or removal of your ability to aim in real time and in V.A.T.S.
    * Fatman explosions create background radiation and the character does take damage from this.
    * Critters will switch weapons as appropriate, the example given being a raider switching from a missile launcher to a knife.
    * Players can join factions through more than one means.
    * The Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave will both feature in the main story.
    * The demo character was confirmed to be edited.

    I've seen all of Fallout 3 that I can stomach. Fuck it. The franchise is officially dead to me.

    The console kiddies won.

    Hope the second trailer actually shows us something positive.

    Perhaps we should fight bears with bears?

    I think I'll be home to watch this, hopefully there will be something else than explosions this time.

    There is also a new interview here:

    Todd talks a bit about a few things. I don't think there's anything new here, but he talks about a bit level scaling at the end. Appearantly it will be more 'sophisticated' this time around. I don't like its inclusion at all. He does say though that some areas will be tougher than others.

    I've seen some games the lvl scale certain plot based areas so that they are the correct challenge for what ever lvl you are. So that you don't spend all your time in the lvl1-5 area until you are lvl 20 and then wipe thru the storyline...

    People should have the right to bear arms....and arm bears - whatever.

    I wonder if they will show RPG elements THIS TIME.

    Can someone please buy this engine from ID and make a so called "spiritual successor" for Fallout! HEll, even just a fan remake of F2 would be awesome.

    Didn´t you get the memo? There are no RPG elements...

    QFT. Some guy in another post said he won't buy it or even warez it, and I'm following the same course...

    I could forgive everything wrong with it, but the graphics when body parts explode are excruciatingly unbearable; I simply can't play a game that forces me to see unrealistic and ultra-violent chunks of meat at every kill.

    This is not post-apocaliptic, it's a B-class trash movie...

    Wow. Rage looks good, that's definitely going onto my watch list.

    Rage looks really nice! Kinda looks like it is everything Fallout 3 is trying to be. A next gen graphics post apoc first person shooter.
    Rage just makes FO3 look silly.

    This is pathetic.

    No matter how much you hate Fallout 3 - If you wanted a Turn Based Fixed-Camera ISO-Version of F3 before, stating now that it "looks ugly" is about as scizophrenic as it gets.

    Seriously, whether or not you like is doesn't matter, but saying the *graphics suck*seems pretty retarded to me - it's not like you have to look that HARD to find REAL things to criticise...
